So, i'm getting ready for work and have just nipped upstairs to grab some clothes. On entering my bedroom - and this is everyday - i'm confronted with a strong, funky smell.

Does anyone know what that smell is? I'm worried that i might be rotting.

If my bedroom was damp, wouldn't it smell throughout the day?

I think it's just the smell of me being enclosed in a room for a long period of time Thing is, what makes for that smell?

It's difficult to tell cos i don't spend a lot of time in enclosed spaces such as my bedroom. Funny thing is, i've got a window on vent the whole time in that room. Could be something to do with the chimney getting warm from the log fire - might be warming something up that could give off a smell.

When i had my own flat, a friend once visited and said it smelt of 'man', almost as soon as he entered the place.

I wonder if that's just a toned down way of saying your flat smelt of semen.

^ They've set the flow rate too fast and the petrol can't flow into the tank that quickly so it keeps thinking it's full and cuts out. Either pull the nozzle out slightly so it flow in more smoothly, or only partly squeeze the trigger so the flow rate is a bit less

^ Mini ones? In a bag? I've never had those before, and I'm a big fan of the regular boxed ones. I'll be on the look out. Assuming it was the whole bag you had, I now feel sufficiently better about my bakewell slices. Thank you for your participation.

I didn't eat the whole bag...... I did eat all the contents though

^ Haha, I'm definitely using that excuse sometime.

Whenever I have one of those share bags (and usually to myself too), I often end up singing in my head that song of Cher's where she sounds all robotic. Always quite liked that song for some reason, despite it being, in fact, indisputably shit.

You probably could, but why batter them to death? Teaspoons are perfect for a good old fashioned eye gouging.

One of my son's teachers used to threaten to gouge his eyes out with a teaspoon if he didn't do his homework
Didn't work though, he still didn't do it.

If the character played by Pinocchio was instead female, what qualities would she have had to show in order to become a real girl?

Just to remind, Pinocchio had to prove truthfulness, bravery and unselfishness.

I'm wondering if anyone can help me....

My mum no longer has any internet in her rented house, but she is moving out next month so there is no point setting it up again.

But I think you can buy internet for periods of an hour, a day, a week etc from BT Wi-Fi hotspots. Looking on their hotspot map, my mum's house is in a 'red' area which means there are 'lots' of hotspots. So, how does it work, what do you need, and is it recommended? As it isn't clear what to do when looking at BT's website.

I have an incredibly basic knowledge of technology, so I hope that makes sense. Thanks in advance.

I use a pay as you go dongle when I stay at my fathers as there is no wifi and even if there was I probably wouldn't know where to begin.

It can get pricey though depending on what your using it for - for instance don't watch a film on Netflix! But in terms of general internet access it's not to bad.

I'm not a techy person either so there are probably better ways and more informed ppl to answer you lol.

I use a pay as you go dongal when away from home and top up as and when I need and is enough for my surfing needs, you would be better off going into a mobile phone shop and tell them what you need it for such as how much time you will spend on line and be guided by them.

A question to anyone who has ever bought or worn Calvin Klein underwear (I know such an exciting topic )

Is there anything at all special about CK underwear other than the fact it has 'Calvin Klein' on them, I mean are they made out of higher quality material or made to be more comfortable than regular underwear, or are people literally just paying more for the name CK on their underwear? Sorry, I was curious

Personally I could never pay over the odds for a piece of clothing simply for the brand name unless I was certain I was getting better quality for my money (e.g. if I was buying outdoor gear, I'd probably be more likely to go for the more reputable brands cause I know I should get better quality for my money), like I remember being bemused when my old friends paid like 20 or something for plain white t-shirts that simply had 'Calvin Klein' written on them, I couldn't live with myself spending that kind of money simply because of a brand. But then again I know bugger all about fashion haha

^ I've had some CK pants (from TK Maxx). They don't fit nearly as well as Sloggi, which I normally get.

How difficult is it to dye your hair - or more specifically how easy is it to completely f@*K up dyeing your hair.

I've never done this but I'm going to have to soon as there are getting too many grey hairs to be reasonable, I'm also afflicted with the ginger gene, which makes me even more scared of turning to ginger in a bottle.

Use a temporary one first. Something that lasts about 24 washes. This means you can experiment and it's not too harsh on your hair xx

Thanks - it didn't dawn on me to do that - a lot of my fear is due to it all going a bit wrong and ending up with orange hair. I remember at school people having disasters and people using food colouring to dye their hair

I thought putting them on turned you into a toned and tanned male model type.
