why is it that you can't ask for people's opinions on how you look without people thinking you're fishing for compliments?
and why, when you point out one of your flaws, do people assume you want to be "corrected" on the matter..."oh you're not ____".
why do people always assume there is some game being played? do people ever take anything at face value anymore?

Our city has been in a drought for about six years now, and it's started to get to my head:

a) Why do snails come out when it rains? When it's dry, do they only come out at night? Is the ground too dry or hot in the daytime for them to move? Are birds snails major predators?

b) Do butterflies have homes? Do they die if rain falls on their magic dust? Why is their dust so important to flight?

My husband and I are going skiing in January. He's never skied before, so for his Christmas present I'm getting him a lesson instead of making him try to learn on his own. I want to also get him something he can open, though, so I'm putting together a skiing care package sort of thing -- little things that are helpful to have when you're skiing. So far I've thought of hand/foot warmers, a package of hot chocolate (for when you're done for the day), a rice krispy square (for snacking on the lift), and a disposable camera (for keeping in your pocket to take pictures with if you don't want to ruin your digital camera when you fall on it). Does anyone have any other ideas?

My boyfriend is religious and I'm not and we sometimes get into discussions where he says something and I go, "Where the hell did you get that from?"

The most recent being him saying that most scientists that go about trying to disprove the existence of god end up believing themselves. No matter what I put into Google I can't find anything like this and I find it a little hard to believe. I also know my boyfriend...he tends to hear something and repeat it as truth.

So, does anyone have any websites that actually say that's true? (I'm sorry, but I'm not going to trust Christian websites on this one)

One of my younger brothers is considering some sort of permanent acne treatment. His friend got it and it worked really well. He's heard it's really bad for the liver though, and as he's on some other meds already (not for acne, just in general), he's afraid it might do some damage.

Has anyone had or known someone who had this treatment? Was it effective? Were there bad side effects? What about if they were on other meds at the same time?

Have you ever played the lottery? Did you win anything?
Never played

What would you do if you gave someone a lottery ticket as a gift and they won an ungodly amount of money?
Ask for a finder's fee or something. The worst they can say is no, right?

Application Requirements [Dec. 21st, 2006|03:48 pm]
The Question Club

[montanajen]

Scenario:  You advertize for a position, and close attention to detail & ability to follow detailed directions are but two of several requirements.

In bold print at the bottom of the advertizement, it says "Absolutely no phone calls, please mail resume and cover letter to ..."

Question:

Do you immediately toss resumes faxed in?  Do you immediately toss resumes submitted without a cover letter?



My answers:  You bet your ass - I'm even tossing those with poor sentence construction and incorrect grammar.  Hell, if you're resume's not perfect, then what is your work product going to be?

I've noticed that I have been clenching my teeth a lot lately without realizing until my jaw and teeth start to ache. I haven't had this problem before.

Does anyone know what might be causing this, and how to prevent it? The internet resources I'm finding tend to be for those who clench their teeth while sleeping, and any personal tips to solve this problem would be appreciated. :)

This is probably a long shot, but does anyone here have the latest episode of 'Bones' that they would be willing to share? I've been trying to bit torrent it, but it's not working well and Limewire is being really shitty.

More Ipod help needed for desperate teen! [Dec. 21st, 2006|05:07 pm]

[gonepishing]
[music |The Grease Movie Soundtrack...yeah I'm a dork]

In case you didn't read my past Ipod post, I have an Ipod nano. Today was my first day actually USING it (I've had it for quite a while, but it was just last night I figured out how to put music on it...yeah yeah I know.) And then today, it was acting really odd. I KNOW the way that you turn it off is by pressing down the Play/Pause button for like a few seconds until it shuts off, and everyone who tried, it just wasn't shutting off. And the button isn't broken, because the "pause" function still works.


So the battery went dead in my locker, and its charging now,so my hopes are that when I turn it back on after the charging, the off function will work... but I'm wondering

1.) Did this happen to you on your Ipods "first day out"?
2.) Any Ideas how to make my Ipod shut off just in case the charge hypothesis dosen't work?


I will be EXTREMELY grateful if you can help me out.

God I hate mild inconveniences like this...

Somebody I work with mentioned the other day that she's been going through some financial troubles recently (a long story, but it's no fault of her own), and probably won't have enough money to finish all her Christmas shopping.

If you were in her situation, would you be offended if a coworker offered to give or lend you a few hundred dollars so you can give your kid a happier holiday?

Say you have a album you really like. How do you find artists that are similar?

My answer: I like to see what Amazon and Last.fm have to say for similar artists, but they don't usually have interesting suggestions. My next step is to search for said artist on a p2p program and see what other users have in their file libraries.

Hopefully some of you are on it so you can help ease my curiosity. I know that cigarettes and things like Advil and Nyquil reduce the effectiveness of the pill.

So after wandering around Bed Bath and Beyond until I was completely confused (and wheezing from all of the different smells in there) I decided to come to you, oh TCQ. Here's the deal:

I think my boyfriend would love a set of beer glasses for christmas; the gobletty kinda that a lot of beers he likes are supposed to be served in. The thing is, though, that I have no clue what they're called, how exactly they look and where to find them. Any beer experts out there?

I guess this counts as a christmas gift question so... whoops!

ok, so my friend was backpacking all around south east asia last year and she bought lots of these pants, they're basically loose cotton and they're pretty big, but you put them on, fold over the excess (from one side to the other, like you're folding your pants to tuck them into your socks), tie the strings around your waist, and then fold the top of the pants over the strings, like those fold-over yoga pants. SO, does anyone know what these pants are called?

Any cures? I've had 'chronic' chapped lips for about four years now. I've tried everything, been to the doctors and got treatments, changed toothpastes, taken vitamins, used every chapstick avaliable pretty much and I drink water regulary so it isn't dehydration, yet they're still bleeding and gross all the time. Any help? Also how do I get out of the habit of touching my lips, because I'm sure that doesn't help.
