Old clothes [Aug. 25th, 2019|05:19 pm]
The Question Club


What is your criteria for getting rid of clothing? Is it fashion based? Wearing based? Or just too threadbare and has to go?

The subconscious never knows [Aug. 25th, 2019|07:09 am]
The Question Club

Have you had a particularly nerdy dream lately? This morning I dreamt that I was explaining to someone how stupid it was that Hasbro used two head molds and two body molds for the FIM retro ponies. Apparently that was the best my brain could come up with!

Can't lose weight... [Aug. 12th, 2019|09:04 pm]
The Question Club

I've started dieting. I've gone to skimmed milk, only have 1 sugar in my coffee instead of 2 (I drink 2, maybe 3 cups a day, if that), no fat or low fat yogurt, pretty much all the healthy alternatives. I've cut down my portion sizes and I'm a boredom eater, and tend to binge eat. When I'm bored I'll eat a banana or a raw carrot which helps. I'm also exercising (only for around half an hour a day because I've got fibromyalgia and in pain with it) and walking a lot.

It's been two weeks and I've gained 8lbs when really it should be going down, not up! What am I doing wrong?

looking at rental rates is demoralizing [Aug. 6th, 2019|06:40 pm]
The Question Club

So I've come to pose a very hypothetical Values question to you all. Would you rather get, for the rest of your life*:

A.Housing credit of up to $1400 USD a month (applicable to rent, mortgage or property taxes; no cash back for coming in under the limit; utilities not included except where covered by rent per landlord)

B. An anonymous benevolent sponsor's cash gift of $900 USD a month.

*Benefits not transferrable to S.O. / children / anyone else upon your death.
*Need not be located in U.S. ; global currency exchange available

What is the new metrosexual? [Jul. 27th, 2019|09:57 pm]
The Question Club

I was talking with a friend who said he's not a normal average guy, he's metrosexual, and then asked, "Is that even a thing anymore? Nobody says 'metrosexual' now."

So, what's the current term for what was once called metrosexual?

Learning another language [Jul. 26th, 2019|05:42 am]
The Question Club

I'm already (somewhat) bilingual, but my 7 year-old has had a consistent interest in learning Russian. I don't know if it is great or terrible that one of his favorite movies is The Hunt for Red October and two of his favorite songs are by The Red Army Choir.

Being in the middle of the desert Southwest of the USA Russian lessons for a 7 year-old aren't conveniently available so I ask you, dear Question Club:

What is the best language learning software, books, CDs, DVDs or combination thereof for a young child?

I am happy to add a third language along with him and I'm aware at this age he'll probably pick it up faster than I do, but I also hear that the second language is the hardest and it gets easier after that.

Also any other considerations when teaching/learning a language with a kid this young?

DK/DC: What language(s) do you speak?

Big purchases online [Jul. 17th, 2019|04:19 am]
The Question Club

Hi hello TQC.

My laptop is older than dirt (in electronics/technology terms). It’s from 2011. It seems to work just fine but the battery and power cord have gone to sh!t. I’ve gone online to purchase new batteries and power adapter cords. But they don’t seem to be the fix. The cord falls out all the time, and even the new battery never held a charge. As soon as the cord falls out, (like if I move wrong it does) the lap top entirely shuts down. Which is rather annoying if I am in the middle of working on something. So I’m contemplating just getting a new laptop all together. With that being said.....

Has anyone made a bigger electronics purchase such as a new lap top or new tv off of a site like Amazon or eBay? What did you get? What was the experience / customer service like? Was the product good/did it function properly?

Thanks for any feedback. :)

UPDATE: (in case any of you cared... lol)
I had been paroosing Best Buy online and decided after dinner to go into the actual store to check out what I was eyeballing online. To see if it would work for my needs. The sales gal ended up showing me this "Open Box" lap top option that ended up being really cool and just about in the price range I was looking for. So I went for it. I've been happy playing with my new 2-1 (with a touch screen! what?!?) lap top. Dang 2011 technology to 2019 technology. UPGRADE. haha

Job Inquiry [Jul. 16th, 2019|11:54 am]
The Question Club

I interviewed for a job in May for the same company I work for now, different department. I didn't hear anything and assumed I didn't get it. In late June I received an email from the other department. Since the info is sensitive, I emailed the supervisor and let him know just in case there was some mix up. He replied he was being proactive by signing me up for the automated daily emails because I was the top candidate. He said the paperwork was with HR and that he would contact me as soon as the transfer paperwork was done.

I'm still receiving the daily emails and have heard from various managers in my current department that they think I'll be leaving for the new job soon so I guess they've talked or heard something. But I still haven't heard anything official myself. It's been 2 months since interviewing and almost a month since the manager said he'd contact me.

Should I contact the manager again? What should I say? Thanks in advance.

What to do in Cleveland? [Jul. 16th, 2019|11:31 am]
The Question Club

Hey folks,

My dad and I are taking a road trip to Cleveland in two weeks. The purpose of the trip is to 1) See a baseball game 2) go to the Rock and Roll Hall 3) Go to Canton to the Football Hall of Fame. We have plans to do all those things.

We will basically have Tuesday Evening, all day Wednesday, all day Thursday, and part of Friday before we go home, to do those things. My dad has some mobility issues and struggles with back pain and a few other maladies, so I purposely booked the trip for longer than is necessary to do those three things, as we might need lots of time to rest in between things.

However, I just entertained the possibility that we might find ourselves with lots of extra time. Any suggestions for things to do in Cleveland? We will have a car with us and walking short distances is okay. We're staying downtown near Progressive Field. My dad is a bit of a 60-year-old-white guy caricature - he likes sports, rock music, cars, western movies, beer (he experiments a bit but doesn't like hipstery-hoppy type beers) and, a bit against type, botanical gardens.

Any suggestions other than the three main things listed above?

Memories [Jul. 14th, 2019|09:47 pm]
The Question Club

Tonight our son was telling us about a memory he had regarding his dad buying a truck. He would have only been about three years old at the time we bought the vehicle. My husband says that is way too young to have any kind of reliable memory about a situation and that it was probably something he remembered from what other people told him. I think my son could have remembered it because my earliest memory was from when I was about three years old. I remember my grandfather helping my grandmother (who was in a wheelchair after a stroke) put on her stockings.

What is your earliest memory? (If you are willing to share) Do you think it is an actual, reliable memory or is it possibly something you only created from what others may have told you?

Thoughts on the whole "Have faith. It'll come when it's meant to be?" [Jul. 12th, 2019|08:49 pm]
The Question Club
I've always been told this saying through my life and you know, when it gets reinforced enough you believe it. It's become my source of acceptance, my way of moving forward when my life is awry. I don't follow it blindly. I've worked hard to get where I am. I have many bigger hopes for my life but I look back and it seems like something always comes out of something unexpected at a time I'd never imagine it happening. So even when I doubt it and lose my faith, in hindsight my belief in it gets reinforced.

How about you? Do you believe in this? Has there been events in your life where you think this has happened?

Does a genderswapped cover of Edwyn Collins' "A Girl Like You" exist? [Jul. 8th, 2019|07:04 pm]
The Question Club

[music |Implicit in the topic.]

(Crossposted to whatwasthatsong.)

Also popularly known as "Never Met a Girl Like You Before", famously used in Lucifer and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, and often misattributed to Iggy Pop or David Bowie:


Does any cover exist that phrases it as "A Guy Like You"? Ideally sung by a man and with a driving rock beat and psychedelic guitar similar to the original? (I know--I'm probably asking for toasted snow.)

(Vanessa Brown's "Crazy Amazing" contains the phrase, but is a completely unrelated song with a cute bubblegum flavor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gf4ZIVQ7cpE)

(Edited to correct the YouTube link, which led to something unrelated but relevant to the second Weirdness post.)

We are not weird here. [Jul. 4th, 2019|11:27 pm]
The Question Club

I have been away, so sorry; fell into a burning ring of fire and went down down down with the flames rising higher.

Returned to see someone calling us weird. I am offended and triggered, and generally deeply upset that such a comment would come from the land of Facebook.

So I'm going to ask a nice, normal question, to prove we are not weird.

Here goes:

If you fell off the edge of the world into space, would you eventually slow down, or keep going at the same speed, or just fall faster and faster until you burst into flame?

DK/DC -- Will the angels help?

DK/DC -- Villanelle?

DK/DC -- Best song by the Chromatics?
