I did for a couple times, and it was funny yet interesting.
UK members how much would you give for a meal that cost around £37?
Do you suffer from hayfever?
If so, which over the counter drug do you take for it? The active drug itself, not the actual product name. (since the names could be different between countries) :)
i tried googleing (my city name) + police beat but got nothing
i'm asking because today at work the police had to come and wrestle a customer to the ground who was basically going crazy, and i'm interested to see what the description would be? plus i wanted my boyfriend to see it.
Will I ever get BETTER at it? Cause at the moment I flail like a wounded sloth on even the easiest of songs.
Are the really expensive pads better than the cheapo ones? The one I got was on sale and it's like a twister mat type thing, no padding or anything. After just one song my feet and ankles start to hurt.
2) How good of a live show does DragonForce perform? Would a somewhat-scrawny 16 year-old drama geek who doesn't go to concerts (ever) be able to survive the certainly awesome power? If not power, what about the usual people who would show up at a power metal concert? A power metal concert in Ft. Worth, Texas?
I'm looking for one address that people can email (firstname.lastname@example.org) that will forward anything sent to everyone registered. ListBot has been dead for a while. I'm screwing around with Topica right now.
I'd like for the moderators to be able to edit the lists, and not require that inept people dick around with registry and validation too much. (Which is why Yahoo's service wouldn't work.)
Edit: Does anyone actually use mailing lists anymore for discussion? :/
Some of my winners: Enigma, Sade, some Sinead O Connor, Massive Attack, Conjure One, Faithless.
Are Hostess HoHos still manufactured? They're still listed on the Hostess website but I have not been able to find them ANYWHERE. I've looked at all of the grocery stores in town and they either don't carry Hostess products at all or they have other Hostess products (Twinkies, Ding Dongs, etc) but no HoHos.
I need to find a box of HoHos! And no, the Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls won't work.
2) How many songs do you have on your iPod? (or whatever other mp3 player you might use)
1511. It's a 6GB mini and I can't get any more on.
3) What are the last five songs that played?
Gnarls Barkley -- Crazy, Death Cab for Cutie - Transatlantism, Mystery Jets -- Diamon in the dark, Gnarls Barkley -- Just a thought
4) What are the top five played songs?
Elliott Smith -- Waltz #1, Fools Garden -- Lemon tree, Andrew Bird -- Sovay, Ani DiFranco -- Platforms, Ani DiFranco -- Bubble
5) What are the last songs/albums you've added?
Gnarls Barkley -- St Elsewhere, M Ward -- Post war, Reefer Madness soundtrack, Andrew Bird -- Music of hair
2. Do you like to sing?
3. Do you sing along to music? Does it make a difference whether or not you're around people?
4. When do you sing? (ie while cleaning, in the car, etc)
If you aren't going to work are school today, what are you going to do?
What major war(s) did your classes spend the most time trying to teach you about?
Were any major wars or major social movements or anything else major left out of your history courses?
I ask partially because in my school (very small private school) the history teacher would plan to teach us about a particular segment of modern US history, but we never made it that far by the end of the school year. We were always finishing up World War 2 by the time school was over, and we never got to Vietnam. So, to this day I know absolutely nothing about the Vietnam war, and it seems like a lot of other people close to my age did study it in school. Maybe my teachers were just disorganized, but I thought we had to learn a core set of things about US history and that Vietnam and stuff that happened in the 50's, 60's, and 70's should have been mandatory by the time I was studying them in the 80's and 90's.
my youngest graduates this week thursday and i honestly don't know what to get her...for her graduation party - we're having it in july and gettng her a jumping house...
any suggestions on a gift from me? (nothing to outrageously expensive - she's already getting a vehicle from my brother)
also - should i give it to her at the party or on the day she graduates?
what did you get when you graduated?
when did you get it?
1. If you're on the east coast of the U.S., aren't you absolutely fed up with the torrential downpours?
2. What's your favorite day of the week? Least favorite?
3. Has anyone else seen the Discovery Channel special, Krakatoa: Volcano of Destruction? If yes, what did you think of it?
ETA: To those of you who haven't seen this special, and wanted to, Discovery Channel will be re-airing it this coming Saturday, June 17th @ 9:00 P.M.
4. What's the worst natural disaster you have experienced so far?
Pictures would be great. Google isn't really helping me out.
Where should I study abroad?
What would it be?
EDIT! how do you eat freezie pops?
i like to eat about 2 inches off the top, then crush the rest of it up so it's like a slushie in a tube
Anyway, I work in a call center, so all I do is sit. I can use the internet, obviously, but I seem to have run out of things to do. Any ideas what I can do so as not to fall asleep on my keyboard?
Why does someone from the russian federation keep looking at my xanga??
What kind of backpack do you recommend? Mine is a traditional 2-strap and it's falling apart. I've never had a sling-kind but they look comfy. Opinions please!!
Is his recommendation letter still valid for anything? The only other one I have is from a former employer, which is also good (and he still works there!) but not quite as detailed or thorough. And I won't get the chance to get any more recommendation letters from anyone for at least the next few months.
(I'm in no hurry to use one at the moment - it just seems like such a sad waste of recommendations if I can't use it anymore!)
Obviously not open the mail, but... put it back in the mailbox with the flag up and a note that says "please deliver to correct addressee"?
Do you think it is more HONEST to answer TQC questions with the first thought that pops into your head...or to think it over a bit, then answer...?
is honesty always the best policy on TQC?
Mine included Legos, Lincoln Logs, and Micro Machines
2. What was your favorite TV show or cartoon as a child?
I loved Reading Rainbow, Alf, and Saved by the Bell
3. Describe one vivid memory from your childhood...
I remember being at my grandmother's house probably when I was only 5 or 6, riding my tricycle along through the yard and thinking that it would be really fun to ride my bike down the hill (which was actually the ditch in front of her house). So I did, and I ended up being a muddy mess and balling my eyes out. Grandma sure thought it was funny, though.
4. Are you an only child, oldest child, middle child, etc.?
I'm the oldest of four, 24 years old.
My on-site apartment manager is either in the hospital or dead... basically she's an old lady who is MIA and no one has said anything to us, but there has been a bunch of new people coming in and out of our building and no one is answering questions. The only number I have is the old lady's, and none of our lease paperwork has any other number other than that.
The sign outside my building is my only clue, as it says "KLP Mangement" on it, but google has brought up nothing, nor has the yellow pages.
So I wanted to find some website or number I can call and enter my buildings address to find who the legal owner is and hopefully get some answers that way.
Do you remember the exact date?
Since losing it, what has been the longest amount of time that you went without having sex?
2.Have you ever had a near death experience? If yes, elaborate.
3. Are you afraid of death or have you made peace with its inevitability?
4. Which do you think is more painful? Physical or emotional/psychological pain?
5. Have you ever fainted?
( Collapse )
(If it says anywhere, much apologies, but I've been searching and unable to find it.)
2. Could someone recommend me some good summer reading? I'm particularly fond of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, but read most anything (so long as it's not Dan Brown).
How do you go about approaching him?
Congratulations! You're now a mutant. You have powers. What power have you mutated?
Damn, the government hates mutants and your kind is being hunted down. What do you do?
What would your costume be like?
You have your cool powers but because of those powers, you are being hunted and you're on the lam. A new discovery will remove your powers so you can lead your normal life again without any fear of capture. Do you undergo this treatment?
If you had powers and your friends and family were being harrassed because they knew you, constantly being taunted or threatened for being a 'mutie lover', what would you do?
Considering your enemies now and one of them got powers, who would your arch-nemesis be and what would their power be?
Your own superhero name?
Off the subject, describe your underwear today
She also gave me this lucky coin, it is fairly large and has a hole in the middle, with what looks like chinese inscriptions on both sides. It is like a dirty gold colour. Does anyone have a name for this coin? What should I do with it?
However, when I go searching through the web for hi-res pics...I can't seem to find the same ones that other people find.
For example, in the Ron Livingston community, the mod had posted some great hi-res pics of Ron Livingston from a photoshoot...how the heck did the Mod find those cus I just spent and hour searching and couldn't find them!
So where or how do people find outtakes and photoshoots to post to fansites and hi-res photo communities?
EDIT: I know how to do a google image search...that's not what I meant.
What I mean is...when you go to for example: www.iheartjake.com there is a section of photoshoots and outtakes...where does the owner of that website find those photoshoots?
2. Do you buckle your seatbelt when you drive? (Usually / Usually Not)
3. Do you buckle your seatbelt when you're in the passenger seat? (Usally / Usually Not)
4. Do you buckle your seatbelt when you're in the backseat? (Usually / Usually Not)
5. Are you more likely to buckle your seatbelt during the day or at night?
How would you describe the taste of a mango to someone who has never tried one?
2. I need to move out of New England, but somewhere in the continental US. I'm looking for a place where it doesn't snow, where it doesn't rain more than 50% of the time, somewhere at least somewhat urban, and somewhere that you can get a house with a yard for ~$200K. I'd love for it to be near the ocean, but it'd be okay if I lived away from the ocean as long as I had a pool. Feel free to pimp your home town, just tell me why it's a great place to live!
Have you heard this before, and do you think this is a general rule?
As a bonus question, one of my earliest memories is from my grandfather's funeral, I remember very little of the funeral itself but a lot about the huge family potluck after. I had a lot of fun, not understanding the whole death aspect. As a child I grew up thinking "death" meant a big party and it wasn't until I was much much older that I began to understand. Even though I understand the sadness of death now, I still think of a funeral as a huge party- probably because I haven't really been to any other type- have you been to this type of funeral? How about other types? What were they like?
List so far...
If I save with with the default settings (DV-NSTC, I believe) it's around 800mb. I tried saving it using DivX codec, and while it was only 50mb, the video size was tiny and it was really choppy.
Thank you for any help.
What fun things could me and a friend do after 8 p.m. this evening in rural Pennsylvania that does not involve a movie theatre or tipping cows or illegal substances? It's only a few days into summer and we've already run out of things to do because we're boring like that, apparently.
I tried to upload pictures from prom but photobucket was moving really slowly and when the picture was completed, it was 102 x 204 instead of, like, 306 x 408.
Am I doing something wrong?
I don't know what's going on...
Please elaborate... what makes it the best city you've ever visited?
For me, Toronto holds a special place in my heart. I spent 8 days in a nearby town, and I just was amazed by how friendly people were, how clean the city was, and all that fun stuff. But then again, I haven't taken too many trips out of state.
uhm that dancing movie... with jennifer lopez, darn i forgot the title right now.
then il mare=the lakehouse!
does anyone know what else was turned to an american movie? i like watching them and comparing. hehe.

4. What is your cat's name?

If you could ask any member of thequestionclub any one question, who would you choose and what would you ask them?
Me being a nice hostess and loving food, I've decided to cook for everyone who's coming. There will be at least 8 people there and there are two hours between me getting home from work and the match starting - this is all the time I have to prepare and cook everything I need.
So, what should I cook?
( Collapse )
Also, somewhat related, would chicken satay taste any good with sweet chilli dip?
I have a mac and a windows pc which i use interchangably. Is there a way for me to download mail onto my mac then inport this into my pc inbox?
Edit: Solved. Thanks ;]
True or False: People accept the love they think they deserve.

If anyone here is a teacher/knows a teacher: How did they/you get the job? Are they usually listed in the newspaper? Word of mouth? Was it an interview process? Did you need a recommendation process?
Do you know anyone who has a teaching degree but isn't a teacher? Why?
What is the tallest roller coaster in the world? The united states?
What is your favorite amusement park ride ever? What about amusement park?
What should I do as a incoming college freshman over the summer?
What should I do as fun over the summer?
and, finally, what's the best way to heal a broken heart? (As if that couldn't sound more pathetic and overly emotional).
How do you hold your guns in that situation?
What's the longest you've ever gone giving someone the silent treatment?
Don't worry if it's local, someone will have heard of it.
Personally, I vote for either Garlic Jim's Pizza or Taco Del Mar.
So, having a bun in the oven and all, me and my BH have been thrashing about some names. They only ones we have been able to agree on are;
girl; Serendipity (Sara for short)
The question is, are these just too cruel and unusual?
We already have a Meagan (May-gan), which after two years I am scunnered that NOBODY gets it is not Megan! But I am equally scunnered that my son James has such a popular name he now thinks his name is James K! Not that we can come up with a normal name that we both like... we might just have to stick with Skippy! :P
Edited to lose Locke and rayne by very popular demand.
Anyone happier with Serendipity if we promise NEVER to call her that in public and shorten it to Sara?
Edited edit; since all my names suck (exept to a few sterling individuals) and having realised that next time anyone asks 'who stands out in this community', everyone will answer with 'that lassie who called her poor baby some dumb ass name', I've decide to scarp my list and go with;
[insert name here] for either a boy or a girl.
This entry was brought to you with the punctuation : and the letter P
2006 Buick Lucerne (moderately-equipped)
2006 VW Jetta (fully-loaded 2.0T)
2006 Chrysler 300C (moderately-equipped)
I've looked at the KBB comparisons and they all seem pretty equal as far as ratings, price, fuel efficiency, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations?
2. Any tips for wakeboarding? Every time my friend and I try, we can never quite get up (we're using a 4-stroke Yamaha jet ski to tow it) We've tried longer tow lines, shorter ones, starting quickly and starting slowly-- what's the best combination?
3. What's the best approach to take when trying to teach an adult to swim? Every time I google, I just find sites on how to teach children how to swim.
4. What's your favorite bad movie-- one you're embarrassed to admit liking?
Same situation, except you have spawned, once or more. Keep the ring, or give it to one of the fruit from your (or your spouse's) loins? If you choose the latter, how would you choose which of the podlings to give it to, if you had more than one? What would you expect them to do with it? Keep it in the family, or sell to cover your funeral expenses?
What gender are you or do you identify as? (Just curious about how men would differ from women.)
-edited to add two more-
I learned it at summer camp when I was eight. Other than the people I know from that camp, I have only met one other person who knows it.
2. If a band has punctuation in it's name (like Panic! At the Disco or The Aquabats!) do you write the punctuation? I do, but a lot of people don't and it looks strange to me without it.
I shopped in one for the first time tonight and it was just like a tiny, shitty Wegmans but without anything I actually wanted to buy.
it's creeps me out thinking about how much it must hurt when you fall with full speed on your bare knees.
one time I fell on my knees while inline skating and luckily I had my knees protected.
Who's the best looking thequestioncluber? (I'll even link you to the most recent photo post.)
Of course looking back over the post myself it's obvious that pretty much no one here is unattractive, but I'll go with dishpan_nipples and madscience.
EDIT/bitching: Okay, revolttqc, you win hawtest on teh intarwebz.
Seriously though. Someone has way too much time on their hands. Making what appears to be an 'anonymous' screen name (TQC suffix, anyone?), and finding AIM names on profiles? Seriously, if anyone but revolttqc's egos are bruised from not being called hot by a stranger on LJ, I apologize. This post doesn't seem terribly unpopular, but as always, this stuff (deleting/moderating posts) is left up to the mods.
Wikipedia is not helping me.
If it matters, he's getting a scan of his brain because he recently was diagnosed with Parkinson's.
Does anyone know some secret to ticket purchase where I could find cheaper rates?
There's no student discounts on airfare is there?
What the hell was that?
So, do you accept the challenge? (Had to make sure there was a question mark in there!)
Or is it just time for me to go to bed?
I always heard that you had to say, "Bloody Mary, I killed your son," some amount of times but my sister heard it as daughter instead. It made me curious about the versions other people heard. I never tried it because I am easily spooked.
