Have you ever signed up for a subscription service? Yanno. You get books/clothes/tools/recipes/gadgets/meat etc once a month or so.
Did you like it? How long did you keep it before you let it drop?

"What do you want for your birthday?" [Oct. 1st, 2019|10:50 pm]
The Question Club

nahele_101
My brother's birthday is coming up. He never asks for anything. He never gives suggestions. "I don't want anything" he states. He hasn't wanted anything since he turned 22 or so, so shopping for him is really difficult.

Do you tend to want anything for your birthday? Has your desire for gifts gone down as you've gotten older? Or, are you like "well, glad you asked! I want..."

Good fences make good neighbours [Sep. 29th, 2019|09:09 am]
The Question Club

calzephyr77
Hi group, we're working on next year's reno list for our oldish house and we're keen on getting a fence. We've gone 15 years without one, but the neighbourhood is getting busier. Sometimes we find random people in our yard and lately someone has been uncovering our bbq in hopes of finding keys, I guess...

For me, a fence has to look nice and keep people out! We live in a windy area where it snows 6-8 months of the year. What do you suggest to help narrow down some options?

TQC, choose my own carpet adventure [Sep. 20th, 2019|11:17 pm]
The Question Club

piperki
I moved into a new apartment in June and prior to my arrival the landlord didn't replace or (as far as I can tell) shampoo the carpet, which was new only a year before - previous tenants were pretty tidy but there are little stains in the entryway. The idea of a year's dust accumulated is bugging me, and I'd like to get it cleaned somehow. Tell me about YOUR carpet and decide my fate.

Brain Renovation [Sep. 17th, 2019|05:22 pm]
The Question Club

inmyblueheaven
If someone could wave a magic wand and change your IQ, would you opt for higher, lower, or to stay exactly as you are?

Assume that the change is permanent and thus the consequences or benefits, as the case may be, also are. Choose carefully!

I can comprehend the "ignorance is bliss" argument. Especially in a Universe composed of 75% dark energy, it can be nice sometimes to be numb. At the same time I can also see a myriad of benefits and detriments of having an extremely high IQ. I personally don't know if I would choose to raise, lower, or maintain mine at a comfortable and familiar 135. But I've always thought it was a good question for reflection.

HOW the world changes in accordance with level of intelligence.

ETA a Sidenote: I highly recommend to everyone, on this topic, an excellent fiction book called Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes.

Go to Work With a Fever? [Sep. 11th, 2019|06:12 am]
The Question Club

hari_kari
I know I shouldn't because I'm contagious. But I've missed 2 days of work at a relatively new job now because I have what I think might be a stomach flu. I was able to get an appointment today with my doctor (finally - I couldn't go to urgent care because I couldn't afford it), and was planning to go after work but still have a low grade fever this morning and am not feeling good. I was hoping my fever would be gone as I was feeling better last night.

I've been at this job about 5 weeks including this one, though I've worked for the company 9 years. I don't have the leave to miss though because I'm in a new position. Advice?

Thank you all in advance.

European Vacay!!! [Sep. 11th, 2019|01:49 am]
The Question Club

laorion
So, I’ve decided to take my kids to Europe next summer. They’re 11, will be twelve when we go. We are definitely going to Italy and almost definitely Ireland...I’m thinking of adding a third country (or two)...I don’t want to overwhelm them as this will be their first trip out of the states. If we do add another country I’ll probably want to take them somewhere I haven’t been yet...but I’m not gonna list up everywhere I’ve been because that’s just ridiculous. So, TQC...where do you think I should take these little rascals?? In Italy and Ireland, and beyond...tell me where and why, I wanna know!!
It’s a big world...I’ve only seen some of it, and I’d like to see more. But more than that I’d like to encourage a love of traveling in my kids (realistically they have more time than me to see everything....please have at it!

Going to Vegas [Sep. 9th, 2019|01:54 pm]

How should a woman dress for Vegas in October? Going to shows, casinos, fancy dining and hiking. I have the hiking part down and how I would prefer to dress all the time is t-shirt/tank, shorts and sandals. I'm fashionably inept. But I have to fake it to pass dress codes at restaurants and the like. Help?

What is the punchline to one of your favourite inside jokes you share with friends or family?

(Please, no background info or joke set ups. I only want punchlines that don't make sense to anyone other than those "inside")

Calling All Math Whizzes [Sep. 3rd, 2019|03:34 pm]
The Question Club

inmyblueheaven
Refresh my memory because I need to explain this to a kid I'm tutoring. I've scoured the internet and asked several people to no avail, which brings me here. (I was also surprised that this was hard to confirm, but telling me that the internet is all-inclusive of all information in existence is not going to help me.)

I already know that the SQUARE roots of negative numbers can be defined with "i" (imaginary) where we define the square root of -1 as "i".

What I want to know is if we define OTHER EVEN ROOTS of negative numbers in exactly the same way. For example, by this logic:

• the fourth root of -16 = 2i

• the sixth root of -15,625 = 5i

• the eighth root of -6,561 = 3i

Is this correct?

I'm about 90% sure that it is but I'm going for a solid 100% here.

If YOUR google-fu is better than mine, and you can provide a link that backs up your answer, by all means do. I will give you extra brownie points.
