If you could live in Florida (where it's currently 70-something out), but would have to endure the heat (90s in the summer), would you?
Do you like cold winters? Why or why not?
Why do you live where you are?
Have you ever had a limb go completely dead while you were sleeping, so that when you woke up you could feel absolutely nothing in your limb and couldn't even send any brain signals to it to move it?
I had this happen to me the other night and it was sooo freaky! For some reason I was sleeping on my right side with my left arm thrown back behind me and I guess the position cut off the blood circulation or something so that when I woke up my left arm was completely unresponsive. I had to reach over with my right arm to grab my left arm and drag it across my body in order to get any feeling back, and I could hardly believe that this... "thing" hanging off my body was my left arm. Surprisingly it didn't tingle much as it regained feeling... so maybe it wasn't a circulatory thing? The human body is so weird!
1. What is the show you watch re-runs of most?
2. Does anyone else watch re-runs of Growing Pains?
3. Don't you hate sleepless nights?
A few days ago I broke up with my boyfriend because he was smothering me. Now, he still has some of my stuff; a sweater, a raincoat and some other small stuff. I fear that if I come by to pick it up (or ask him to bring them over) he'll think I'm using it as an excuse to get back together. Trust me, he's really thick and can't imagine I'm out of love, he thinks it's just a phase.
Should I go get my stuff, or just let it be? What would you do?
Is Eric going to die on 7th Heaven?!
Do you sleep with or without a bra?
Anyone else having issues with mail notifications? Last night I got hit with 250 responses from threads I was tracking. Today, it's suspiciously quiet again...
ETA: Odd... Seems that I'm getting some replies if I switch my Yahoo Mail to the beta version. If I switch to standard - zip.
I have lots of female freinds and they ALL have complained about wearing a bra, but then it makes me wonder, if its so damn constricting/uncomfortable etc. why do women bother wearing them at all?
From a guys perspective, we'd rather see braless-breasts, and girls see them uncomfortable so
Usual Sat. morning routine: sip coffee, nibble eggs and toast, listen to weekend edition on npr, surf the blogs and read the papers on-line.
Today: is the morning after I drank all the champagne that would sit still, and as a result have sand in my eyeballs and an angry dwarf living in my head.
Question: How big of a slob would I be if I started the weekend by vegging in front of the TV?
I need to alter my self-expectation somewhat. I'm surrounded by folks who have already swept their front porches, run 5K, baked a batch of cookies, and addressed 100 Christmas cards by noon on a Saturday. I was raised that time on the couch on a sunny day was NOT allowed, and only now am coming to terms with taking a nap for a nap's sake. Hmmm...guess I'm not so abnormal after all to want to veg out on a Saturday. (take THAT, Puritanical work ethic!)
1. How can I make myself focus and stay on task? I have so much work to do but I keep getting distracted by the shiny on eBay. I'm like this ALL THE TIME. I tried just closing out the Firefox browser but then I'm even more distracted by wondering if I have any new e-mail or if a new entry has been posted. See? I'm even sitting here posting to TQC instead of working. I just can't focus! Any tips or suggestions? Clearly, just telling myself to focus isn't working for me.
2. What should this sentence say to be grammatically correct? It currently says "20% Off Any Service or Product" but they sent back an edit to change "Product" to "Products" --> "20% Off Any Service or Products". That doesn't make sense to me because service is singular but products is plural? Should the words following "any" be plural or singular?
Are you baking this year for the Holidays?
If so, what? (cookies, pies, etc.)
What is your fav recipe?
Me, I think I'm just going to bake chocolate chip muffins this year. I use the Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Premium Muffin Mix. It's really good and easy!
Does anyone have any information on good/legit companies that offer telecommuting (working from home doing some sort of customer service and/or data entry) as an option?
How long did it take you to work out how you post to a community with this fucking new layout?

If one of your friends' friends that you have never met before sent you a (seemingly drunk, the typing is really messed up and barely legible) facebook message that said "hey, you have really messed up eyes", would you be amused or slightly offended?
Is drinking green tea with honey while you have a cold a good idea?
EDIT: Say you have a payed for copy of limewire pro or some other file-sharing program, is downloading music with that program still illegal?
1. What was the last formal party/formal dance that you went to? How long ago was it?
2. What did you wear? (Share a picture if you want to)
3. Do you like dressing up?
A question for people who want to lose weight, please be completely honest. Don't answer what you *think* you should say, say what you really think.
Do you want to lose weight to be healthy or to look good? If it was healthier to be fat but societal ideals were the same, would you still want to be thin?
So all of a sudden, my FireFox 2.0 is running like shit. I can't open new tabs(which is one thing I love about FireFox)...are there any other comparable web browsers? I'm running Windows XP.
Alright TQC -- the rents have decided I'm getting a GPS unit for my car for the holidays. I get to pick what I want as long as it's reasonable -- $400 is roughly my limit.
What do I want -- Magellan, Garmin, or TomTom?
Can anyone point me to units you've had experience with and like? It has to talk and I'd really like to not have to preload anything onto it.
Some forms I have seen have a box to check off for African-American/Black and and seperate box for caucasian but what box would a caucasian african american person (a white person from africa becoming an american) check off? Most likely caucasian, right?
Why don't more forms have a check box for people with several ethnicities?
When the Model T first came out, how did people recognize their car in parking lots? Or if two were parked next to each other and they forgot which one was theirs?
If you had a baby right now and had to name it with a name from a Beatle's song, what would you pick (Boy or Girl)? Mine would be Sadie or Julia.
I'm attempting to write an paper about the effect that pain can have on not only the sufferers, but the people around them. I've got the sufferer's angle down as I have status migrainosis, but I need some help on the other end:
what type of experiences do you have with people in pain/chronic pain?
1. When you have a cold or the flu, do you keep up with your regular bathing or do you let your grooming habits go to complete hell?
2. About how many days do you think a person can justify not showering or taking a bath due to being sick?
3. Why don't DayQuil liquicaps work? Why??
Tomorrow is my husbands birthday and I want to do something special for him but money is tight (I have about 50.00 that I put aside)
So i'm wondering what any of you have done to make a birthday special without spending alot?
i used utorrent, which i am fairly new to, to download a copy of Sim City 4. The folder that downloaded includs two .daa files titled sim city 4 disk 1 and 2, a keygen and an .exe titled sim city 4. I downloaded PowerIso and used that to look a the files in the .daa files. I tried copying to cd and installing but it won't work. Right when I'm just about done with the install it tells me to install the right disk and neither seems to be that. What am I doing wrong? Any ideas for a better way to install this game?
I have a friend who is from Vietnam. He recently informed me that he has a christmas gift for me >.< and i really have no idea what to get back.
Long long long story short I am kind of in the mindset to impress this handsome young fellow, I would like to get some traditionally Vietnamese to give to him.
I have googled the heck out of this and I cant seem to find anything that is distinctly Vietnamese that i can latch onto for a thoughtful gift idea.
Does anyone out there have any suggestions? Recipes, traditions, or just some more detailed information on how "christmas" is celebrated would be great! (He practices no religion but is opposed to none as well if that means anything)
Today, at work, I lost my company $140, because someone hadn't labelled the different crayfish in the case. I sold two $90 fresh crays as $17.95 frozen crays to an opportunistic customer.
What's the dumbest thing you've ever done at work?
Where did you buy your prom dress?
What are some ways to get motivated to lose weight?
Who else thinks it sucks being born so close to Christmas?
Did you ever describe something or someone in a really weird way as a kid?
Whenever I got pins and needles in my feet I'd say it felt like there were fireworks in my feet.
What can I do to amuse myself when knitting? I have to keep my eyes on what I'm doing, so I can't watch TV or read.
On the show "Sponge Bob square pants" what do you think Crabby Patties are made of?
Capture Card question!
I have a Plextor PX-AV100U, and I was wondering if there were any way to get larger movies. [I can't remember the exact size, but it's around 740xSomething] I would like larger images so I can do more things with them, so is it possible without losing much detail? If it matters, I've been trying to get video game screen caps, and I have hooked up my PS2/Gamecube no problem. The images come out clear, but I just want them to be a bit larger and not pixellated/blocky.
Right now I use InterVideo WinDVD Creator [came with the card], but if I have to buy new software, I'm willing.
Also, could I use this same model on a Mac, but different software? If so, can anyone recommend Mac software for this?
Thanks in advance.
Why would a nightclub put 'no sports gear (jeans and sneakers okay)' for the dress code, but that's it?
Edit: Uh, this club is not that snobby. And it's gay.
I don't understand how shrinker/grower penises work. Where does it all go when it gets soft again? It can't just... disappear. Someone explain the physics of this to me. I'd try to look it up myself, but I get the feeling I'm just going to get a lot of porn, and believe it or not, that's not what I want. :P
How do you edit a .pdf file? I'm trying to apply somewhere that would like me to e-mail my resume and a bunch of forms on their site that are .pdf and open in adobe acrobat when I download them - now, if they wanted it mailed, this would obviously not be a problem, as I'd just print them out and fill them in. But alas - wtf? I can't click on them or anything to type the answers, etc. Help, please.
I am drinking old beer before my holiday vacation...I am getting a little happy. YAY!

PS: If you wanted to lose your virginity in the next month, who would you ask? What would you require of anyone you considered for the de-virgining process.
PSSS I am drunk now.
PSSSS I forgot PSS.
PPS: I've had 3.
- I made an e-bay purchase on Dec. 1, 2006
- The package was shipped from Moorpark, Calfornia to Laurel, Maryland on Dec. 4, 2006.
- It was shipped through the US Postal Service
- There is no tracking number
- It has not yet arrived.
- It is holiday season, things are a bit backed up
- I'm a bit frustrated
edit: I purchased a hair straightener
- How long do you expect it'll take to reach its destination?
- How much longer do you think I should wait before I start asking some questions?
- Does the Post Office even honor "has this package been processed?" type questions?
- How do you pronounce "meme" and what does it mean?
- What bothers you more: When people are really anal about correct grammar (its only the internet, not a resume) Or when people type like they didnt make it past 3rd grade? (lYke Dis oR wHatEves)
- Do you sleep with a stuffed animal/lovey from your childhood?
Do you think there is something wrong with doing so?
- Whats your favorite kind of candy?
- Do you have a myspace? And are you really selective about who you add, or do you add any random person?
- Why am I obsessed with this community and not sleeping right now?
What is the file size/video time limit for videos uploaded to myspace? My brother is asking me to tweak a vid of his band for their profile since myspace says it is too large, but I can't find the parameters anywhere so I know where I need to get the video to.
In as few words as possible, can anyone explain the following philosophical theories?
1) Kant on "The Sublime"
2) Kant on "Taste"
3) Hagel on "The Philosophy of Art"
I'm trying to refresh my memory without going back and reading all that stuff again, and I can't find any decent sites that sum them up in layman's terms. Links to any good sites or articles (short and explanatory would be nice) would also be cool. Thank you so much.
I'm saving up to get my first apartment right now. What are some things to avoid while looking at listings? (e.g. "turn of the century building" = "faulty wiring and shitty pipes")
When you were growing up, did your family make a special trip out just to drive around and look at Christmas lights?
Do you still do it now, if you've moved out and/or have your own family?
How did you find out the truth about Santa?
I found a receipt.
