What does "J" mean in the lyric "new t-shirt, jeans, the best J" around 1:10 in this track?

What have you been listening to lately?

Oiy. [Oct. 19th, 2014|06:31 pm]

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! :)

ughhhh [Oct. 19th, 2014|09:03 pm]

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.

Songs about people being selfish, thoughtless idiots?

Any suggestions?

These can be bitter/sad ruminations on how people let you down, or angry kicking-against-the-pricks this-means-war songs.. I'm not even picky.

Thanking you all in advance.

Thank You Gift [Oct. 18th, 2014|04:27 pm]

Any ideas of a Thank You gift for someone who has been teaching me how to drive?

I have my drive test this coming Monday and she put in a lot of time and patience in teaching me. Price is not really an issue as long as it is not too expensive. But I would like it to be something extra special if I pass this Monday.

Would you invite a friend or family member to stay in your house/apartment while you weren't there? Not to take care of anything, but simply to help them save money while visiting your area?

Would you put any restrictions on what they can use (e.g., if they can drink your alcohol, or do their laundry, or sleep in your bed)?

Would you ask or expect them to replace things they use, such as toilet paper or coffee?

Who makes more money, a copyeditor or a copywriter?

Here are these two jobs, but I am unsure which one makes more:

What is your best guess? Perhaps they make the same?

Gym goers of TQC...

How do I breakfast? Three days (maximum) a week, I will be going to the gym before work (7-7.45) to start work at 8.30. I can't eat before hand, since I'm not going to be eating at 6 to ensure my food has gone down, so I need to eat after. There's no facilities to cook or prepare food at the gym, and due to the nature of my job, I can't go in early to prepare food there, so I need something I can prepare super easily on the way, or just eat?

Any ideas? I figure yoghurt+fruit is a good one (I would on these days make sure I am eating a really good protein enriched lunch)

Dk/dc - favourite breakfast?
All health food aside, my favourite thing in the WORLD is a stack of pancakes, drowning in maple syrup, with bacon and a side of scrambled eggs. And maybe hash browns if I'm feeling disgraceful.
Otherwise I like poached eggs, spinach and peppermint tea.

EDITED TO ADD: I'm allergic to bananas, so nothing with those in.

when is the last time you were jealous of someone, and why?

I recently found out that a mutual friend has become good friends with the bassist of the band Grizzly Bear, whom I love. I'm jealous.

So in English, when we say a number like 1500, there's a couple ways we can say it—fifteen hundred, or one thousand five hundred. Do they do this in other languages, or do they usually have just one way?

I'm particularly curious about French, because I had a specific question regarding that, but those of you that speak other languages, please feel free to answer, I'm curious about those too!

Hey guys, I have two savings accounts: A tax-free savings account that offers 1.0% interest, and a regular savings account that offers 1.25% interest.

Which savings account will actually give me the most cash back from interest/tax savings over a 6-month period? I have a substantial chunk of change that I need to park somewhere for the next half a year, and I'm not actually sure which account would yield more cash.The regular savings account has a 0.25% higher interest rate, but would the tax-free savings account save me more than that in the amount I wouldn't be taxed on my interest earnings? Totally lost on this one. I live in BC, Canada if that matters.

You are at a family gathering as a guest. Someone brings a large box of assorted pastries for everyone to share. Your teenaged niece goes over to them first, and takes a small, dainty bite out of each and every pastry in the box before neatly putting them back in. The rest of the family then oohs and ahhs over what a delicate and polite eater she is.

Am I the only one who thinks this is actually really fucking rude, and isn't a good habit to encourage?

dkdc: What is something popular that you can't stand or try to avoid? I refuse to see Frozen; I think all of the characters look incredibly smug and remind me of Bratz dolls.

Okay, multiple questions here:

1. I'm having a craniotomy next month. Have you ever had a craniotomy? Can you tell me about your experience? Any tips for recovery?

2. I will be staying in the hospital for a while. What should I bring that I might not have already thought of? What would you bring for an extended hospital stay?

3. I will be shaving my head. Not because I need to for the surgery, but because I just cannot see myself wanting to deal with hair care during recovery, and my hair gets so matted when I'm staying in the hospital. Have you shaved your head? Show me pictures? Tips for keeping a bald head warm?

4. Got any good websites for buying wigs? Preferably not expensive real-hair wigs. Cosplay wig sites are awesome too.

idk/idc/i have never had my skull opened or been bald: could you show me your favorite gif?

Root canals--getting to the root of the problem [Oct. 16th, 2014|07:49 pm]

I'm going to have my first root canal tomorrow.

Has anyone here had one before? What's it like? I've been in extreme pain for a few weeks so I can't imagine it being much worse than the pain I'm in now.
