Reddit noob question [Feb. 17th, 2019|10:38 pm]
The Question Club


So I've been on reddit since August, and I'm joining subs and realizing I can't post in a lot of them yet...how do I know what a sub's rules are for when I can post in it? What's the point of joining a sub to ask a question if you can't post in it until you answer other questions or discuss, when you might not have a clue about the topic yet?

(I put off joining for so long because I heard it was toxic, and I do see that, but there are some really nice subs too :))

Sweet Potatoes [Feb. 13th, 2019|08:08 pm]
The Question Club

I have a pair of large sweet potatoes. While I will happily bake them and devour them myself, I'm trying to see how to prepare them so that the other four members of the family might eat them too.

What is your favorite way to make a meal out of sweet potatoes?

Spanish 202 refresher [Feb. 10th, 2019|10:18 pm]
The Question Club


I recently went back to college and I just have to take Spanish 202 just because I have credits from the Spanish I took 20 years ago. So I've forgotten a lot. But I need Spanish 202 to graduate. What can I do to learn without taking classes, before I register for the class? I have quite a bit of time because I'm in junior year now and I plan to get my master's. If anyone has taken SPA 202 what kinds of things did you need to learn? Was the class taught in Spanish?
It occurred to me I don't know if I need that class before I get my bachelor's or not until I get my master's...anyone know?

edit: solved...because I'm nontraditional age and haven't taken Spanish in forever, I can take a 101 in another language. Just a heads up if anyone else is in this situation, you may be able to do this.

Just dropped a load of change for premium orchestra tickets to Wicked in NYC.  Yikes, can't do that too often, but it's for a couple of once in a lifetime special birthdays and seeing it was one my bucket list items.  What the hell.  I'm never going to get to retire anyway. 😅

What have you splurged on recently?

Need help with story title [Jan. 29th, 2019|12:02 am]
The Question Club

So I have 10 pages of story titles on MS Word as well as a notebook full of them in my handbag and not one of them seem to fit with this story I'm writing about a girl finding a unicorn in the local forest and eventually finding a portal to a magical world. What do you suggest? Since the story actually revolves more around the girl and the unicorn, rather than the world, should I use a title like 'The Last/Lost Unicorn'? or is that too boring? Please, hit me with your suggestions. Thanks!

I am a college senior taking a social work course. As an assignment, we are required to interview an older person, age 65 or over, who is a different race or cultural background than our own. (I am Caucasian.) Everyone I have approached for an interview thus far as not been interested. There are only about 15 questions, and they could easily be asked via e-mail. Is there anyone here who fits this description and would be interested in being interviewed for my assignment?

Why are printers so bratty? [Jan. 22nd, 2019|07:57 pm]
The Question Club

I bought an HP ColorSphere laser printer years ago to save money on inkjet costs. The thing is so darn slow...I have been trying to print my homework for the past ten minutes. It printed half of it, gave up and now I'm trying to coax it to print out one page at a time. Sigh!

Since I'll be here for a while, what's your best story about a recalcitrant printer or photocopier?

Reading under a tree [Jan. 2nd, 2019|09:59 pm]
The Question Club

I just saw the splash screen of my husband’s Kindle app, which displays the silhouette of a person reading a book under a tree, and I thought, “That’s a common image, but do lots of people really do that much?” I don’t like being outside so I don’t think I have, but when I am outside, reading a book is not something I’d think of doing.

Poll #2088470 Reading under a tree

Have you read a book under a tree?

I have purposefully taken a book outside to go read it under a tree.
I have happened to have a book with me when I saw a tree and sat down under it to read it.
Maybe. I’ve certainly had opportunities but I’m not sure if I actually have.
Probably not. I don’t read books often enough to make it likely.
Probably not. I don’t see suitable trees often enough to make it likely.
No. I’m pretty sure I’ve never read a book under a tree.

What does "comet" mean to you? [Dec. 31st, 2018|08:12 am]
The Question Club

I'm looking for a company name for my new endeavor. I came up with COMET but apart from the fact that I can't decide if it works for my line of work, I get different feedback on whether a comet is a good thing or a bad thing.

When you hear the word "comet", does it have a positive or negative connotation for you?

other - in comets - er - comments

If you feel like it: What associations do you have with the word "comet"? (Not necessarily job related. Just the word).
