Does a 30 dollar fee for my cable to be disconnected sound reasonable?  I currently have a cable/internet bundle through Mediacom.

Can you think of anything so mundane that if bad things started happening to you shortly after it came into your possession, you'd never even suspect it was cursed? (Its for fiction, so actual belief in cursed objects is irrelevant.)

How would you respond if somebody said something racist to you at work? Assume that it's not about you or any group to which you belong. In my situation, it was something along the lines of, "99% of black people are poor, so fried chicken is considered a delicacy for them."

Does your response change based on whether this person holds a lot of influence in your place of employment?

It's Only Fiction [Oct. 22nd, 2014|02:43 pm]

TQC,

When was the last time a work of fiction got you choked up or emotional and lingered for at least a day? What was it? Share ... Talk amongst yourselves.

Surgery [Oct. 21st, 2014|09:40 pm]

kindredspirit75
Have you or anyone you know had renal cell carcinoma? My son-in-law is having surgery tomorrow for a mass on his kidney and we don't know what to expect. It was found by accident after he had kidney stones and went for his follow up. He might lose the kidney once the surgeon sees it but if the growth is operable, he will still have half a kidney. They are using the cyber-knife if that makes any difference.

Good thoughts sent his way would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have a bad habit you would really like to break, but for some reason all your logic fails you and you just can't get it together?

Brought to you by the fact that night after night I tell myself I am going to get to bed at a decent hour, but no...

What would you do with a really really big sturdy cardboard box, TQC?
I have one which used to contain a sofa, so when I say big, I mean really big; quite big enough for a large tiger, or two moderate and fairly friendly tigers, to get comfy in (if only I had a tiger or two). It seems kind of wasteful to just chuck it out, so suggestions please!

GoFundMe... [Oct. 21st, 2014|11:11 am]

Is a GoFundMe account for a wedding a big no-no to you?

Would you encourage someone not to do that if they threw out the idea to you that they wanted to do it?

For those not interested: What are your plans for Halloween?

#1 Is a person a "hero" for stopping another person from committing suicide? What if that person genuinely did not want to be saved?

#2 Is it shallow to dump someone for being shallow? Inspired by a recent Dear Abby post lol.

#3 What flightless creature do you hope never gains the ability to fly?

Have you had, or are you currently having, orthodontic work done as an adult? Metal braces? The 'invisible' kind?

Did you notice any difference in how people treated you while it was going on?

How much did it cost? Was it worth it?

Does anyone else seem to be having an issue getting OS X Yosemite for their iMac? It was barely downloading to my iMac, and then disappeared. So I tried downloading it again, and now for over a couple hours it has said waiting. (Not even downloading) Am I doing something wrong?

This is a new to me iMac. So any feedback or help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance! :)

TQCers with MacBooks--have y'all experienced any major problems with them? What were they/the outcome?
I got a MacBook Pro in August of 2013. In June of 2014, the logic board went out. Still under warranty, the Apple store replaced it. After realizing that would have been a $200 repair, I decided to extend AppleCare--at first I was bitter because for a computer that expensive, I'd hope that it would perform better, but Friday night the logic board went out again. Less than 60 days out of my year warranty, it would have cost me $580 to have it fixed...suddenly that AppleCare wasn't looking so crappy.

So, long story short, they're fixing it again, but the Genius that dealt with it said it was rare and the fact tat it's happened twice is even rarer, but he didn't offer any other solution. I googled and some forums suggest that overheating can cause it, so I decided to buy a cooling pad for it in hopes it will help :(

Have you ever thought your phone was ringing or vibrating when it really wasn't? Because that happened to me five times last Monday.
