Uh-Uh-Uh, You Didn't Say The Magic Word!

1. What's your favorite movie in the Jurassic Park trilogy?

2. Who's your crush in the trilogy?

3. Favorite moment of the trilogy?

4. Who do you think is THE most annoying character from the trilogy? ( I know this one is going to be hard, because there are A LOT to choose from. ;) )

1. What was that one song, it's techno-y and has the line in it, "take me to a higher cloud" (which is totally un-google-able, though I'm positive that's what the line is), and I think the group name has numbers in it. And they might've played this song at a gay pride parade.

2. What was that one community where you ask things like, "What was that one book where there's a dinosaur and an ice cream cone...?" and people help you remember what it was?

how common is phone sex?

have YOU personally had phone sex before?

someone i know is trying to convince me that it's extremely common, and that lots of people he knows do it all the time. i personally have never met anyone that i was aware of their having phone sex, nor have i done it myself.

My horrible taste in shoes, again!

Are these shoes tacky or fabulous?
I think they are fabulous, and if I find them in a 10 I'm getting them.

If you have any experience with Icon shoes, how do they run?
I'm hoping they run big but I doubt it.

Do you happen to know of any place online that has them available in a 10?
I've checked Froogle and the only other place that had them was Zappos and they didn't have a ten. Apparently they sell Icon shoes at a few places nearby, but I doubt anyone will answer if I call them and 1:30AM.

EDIT: ICONShoes.com has them too, but no 10 =[

Poll #905299 The awkward poll

For this question, everybody's single. So...you're at a family wedding. Some cousin something or other. At the reception, it's standard 70s-80s dance mix with some cake cutting and mostly a forgettable yawn. But, what's this? The most gorgeous/handsome person (of the gender you're attracted to) walks into the room. He/she is stunning and you're rather attracted to them. You approach, ready for some flirty chit-chat, when they turn around and embrace you. "How are you doing, cousin?". Holy crap. It's your second cousin who you haven't seen in ages. How do you feel?

Ew ew ew ew. Incest ew ew ew ew
Must....not....lust. Look away. Must...not....lust
We're only second cousins. We're only talking...boy, they have some kissable lips...
"Say, cuz, wanna do some shots?"
If I can get a little closer, I can slam dunk this roofie in cousin's drink....
None of the above

You're at a restaurant. At a nearby table, there's the most beautiful woman you've ever seen. She's extremely shapely too. She'd make Marilyn Monroe look like a plain jane. The woman's with a young child at the table. You're not really staring, but you notice that at some point, she brings the baby to her chest, opens her shirt, exposes a nipple and proceeds to nurse. You're in her blind spot and she can't see you. Your reaction

Ewwwww. *avert eyes*
Call the waiter over and demand he do something about it
Whatever. Breastfeeding's normal and this is nothing to think twice about. I give her some privacy
I try not to look, but I do steal a few peeks
I hate to say it but I probably take some long, subtle looks
I make some lewd comments, like "I call next", to let her know I'm looking. Make some eye contact.
I just hope no one sees my hand down my pants
None of the above

You're at a live music gig. The opening band rather sucks. You and your friend are at the bar, and you're joking how crappy the band was and how the lead singer can't sing to save her life. You both exchange a few critical jokes when you sense someone behind you. You turn around. It's the lead singer, who's obviously heard every word you said and has a hurt look on her face. What do you say?

"You were incredible! I loved your music! Can I have your autograph?"
"I'm so very sorry. I didn't mean to be so harsh. Can I buy you a drink?"
"You should be used to people saying you suck. If you can't take honest criticism, you're not a true artist"
"No hablas englais. I am a pleased to meet you?"
"Oh, good, I don't have to repeat myself. So, you going to apologize for those 20 minutes I won't get back? Maybe buy us a drink?"
"My words may have been cruel, but you weren't that good. This is what you were doing wrong (explain). If you did this instead (explain), you'd be outstanding"
I say nothing. I don't know what to say. I just don't make eye contact and wait for her to leave
None of the above

You're at a party and having a good time. You're in the main room, squatting down to pick up an empty can. When you stand up, your belt loop snags on a nail or drawer handle or something. You hear a rip sound, and you're aware that your pants are now around your ankles, and you're in your underwear in front of the whole party. They're staring. What do you do next?

Quickly reach down, pull up pants, and flee the room in tears
Reach down, pull up pants, screaming hysterically at the top of my lungs the whole time. Fleeing may be an option once the blind, uncontrollable panic subsides
Put up pants. Laugh it off. Make some joke about how the host set that up on purpose and how you owe them one. Dismiss the thing with laughter
Blame the host for setting the trap. Vow to return the favor. Extend middle finger
Look down. Look up. Smile and say "I guess the no pants part has started. Let's go, you prudes. Drop 'em!"
Go into blind rage. They all saw. None of them must live to see the morning.

I mentioned to a friend that I'm psyched about the new season of Rome (Sunday can't come soon enough!).  I asked him if he'd seen the show and he said no, he wasn't interested in history so he didn't think he'd be into it.

I guess I hang out with too many geeks, because this really took me aback.  Not like history?  I mean, I have a cousin whose only passions are beer and pro wrestling -- no surprise he doesn't like history.  But this guy is getting his masters in mathematics.  I should think you'd need at least minor in geekanomics for that, and ala Weird Al that entails spending your weekends at the Renaissance Faire.  (Well, we all know Rennies are amatures at best and it's really the SCA that -- um, nevermind).

Anyway, my question is, do you like history?  Love it?  Hate it?  Why?

If so, what are his/her/their names? Would you have more if you could?

Mine is a black cat named Jasper T. Cat (his middle name is "The") and he was a shelter cat. I would have more but the husband has 'breathing issues'.

This question is for women and men with moobs

Q: If you could, would you switch your blood type with your cup size?

Q: Would you be willing to give up a kidney if your blood was turned into a super-rare, much-needed plasma type, the variety that they'd pay you $500 each time you gave blood (which you'd probably do if you had gold in your veins)? Things to consider: you can give blood twice a month, I believe, and can do so as long as you're alive, but with one less kidney, you may have to monitor your health more closely, considering the average American diet (or if you're fond of American cuisine)

Holy alien turds, Batman! Your blood has been given an acidic quality, like the aliens from Aliens. Lethal if it touches human flesh and non-metallic objects, but you yourself are not harmed by it. Like all blood, you don't see it unless you cut yourself.

Q: What's the best way to exploit this newfound ability?


Guys: How often do you think about sex? Do you really think about it every seven seconds like the experts say you do? In what context do you think about it (like, what spurs on the thoughts and what specific thoughts do you have)?

Girls: How often is it on your mind? In what context?

Which is better for a first time? To lose your virginity to someone you care about and who will take it slow? Or to just screw someone (possibly random) and get it over with? It hurts anyway, so what's the difference?
I'd like to know the opinions of both guys and girls on this one, despite the rather feminine edge to the question. For guys also, does/did it matter to you if the girl is a virgin? Would you take it slow or just get it done?
Edit: Has going too fast or with someone who doesn't matter ever put anyone off of sex (if even for a short period of time)?

I was throw out of my house...by my parents.
The thing is I'm only 19 years old, and under NYS law, your parents are responsible for you until you are 21.
I'm currently applying for Medicaid/Food Stamps/Financial Aid, but I have a few questions:

1) How do I obtain my things if they're at my parent's house, and they refuse to let me in, or return my calls?
   a) I have a computer, a digital camera, etc that they bought for me. I need this computer for school...how do I get it back? Will it become a 'they-paid-for-it, it's-their-computer' kind of deal, or will I get it back? I don't have the funds to go buying new computers.

2) Would you sue my parents for cash assistance if you were me?
    Why or why not?

3) How did you manage working fulltime, and school fulltime?
    I'm going to have to be doing both, and I'm scared of not being able to make it work.

edit: i spent two mornings in the department of social services of new york state...i was told by every single person i saw that your parents are responsible for you if you are under 21, and a fulltime student. i am both. i was also told i have the right to sue for cash assistance, and should i have a legal guardian, the right to sue for child support.

School choices

If you were in my shoes, what do you think would be the better option:

A. Pay the $10 000 fees and go to a better (private) school.


B. Pay the $800 fees and go to the state school, and put that $10 000 towards a deposit for a house instead.

Keeping in mind I don't actually HAVE any money, I'm planning to save it up. Also, they are both the same course.

Brazilian waxing... the AFTER questions

I just got it done for the first time, so now I'd like to know:

1. When you get it done, do they typically get ALL the hair? Some (not a huge amount) was definitely left behind in my case, and I wonder if that's normal, or if I should try a different salon next time.

2. I know what my aftercare sheet says... but what do YOU do for aftercare? I'd like some tried and true tips to avoid bumps, and possibly help with the little bit of bleeding and bruising I've got going on...

3. When is it safe to shower again? I was told to wait, but uh... I think some wax/sticky stuff got left behind and I want to shower ASAP. Would a cold shower be okay?

4. And just out of curiosity... what is your complexion like, and how does your skin react to the waxing? I have very fair, dry skin, and like I said, I have some bleeding and bruising.

I really hope this ends up being worth it! My head is killing me from the stress of the experience.

I just joined my college's concert choir. The catalog says it is "a non-auditioned ensemble that sings outstanding choral works of many styles, genres and eras. Repertoire includes short and medium-length works."

Will this require individual singing? I can sing fine in a group and have been in choir many times before but I have anxiety disorder and hate singing solo in choir practice. The only reason I had the guts to join was because there was no audition.

greeting card for new mom

Can you offer a suggestion for how to word the message on a card that will accompany flowers to a new mom? In this case, the mom delivered extremely prematurely, so while they say the baby is stable, I know there's always a possibility that something could still go wrong. So I need something that's a mixture of "Congratulations! We're happy for you!" and "We're thinking of you at a somewhat difficult time" ...

I've got a situation and I don't know what to do, so I've come to TQC for help!

So, what would YOU recommend that I do tomorrow?

A) Go in early tomorrow morning and help my boss. When I talked to her on the phone I told her I wasn't sure that I would be able to, but that I would call her in the morning and let her know either way if I was going to come in. So I haven't exactly committed to doing it yet. The positives here are that the whole thing wouldn't be that bad. I wouldn't have to wear business clothes to go in and it would just be sort of hanging out/talking/working with my boss who I like. Plus, I would get paid overtime. Also, I need to talk to my boss about getting a raise and changing my pay status (as it is now, I don't get any benefits because I'm temp) and this would be a better time to do it than during the work week.

B) Not go in tomorrow morning and go snowboarding. Snowboarding is pretty much the only thing I do with my time on the weekends and we're having a blizzard right now so the snow should be amazing tomorrow morning. I wouldn't want to go into work early and then go up because I really like to be one of the first people out there and to get fresh tracks. I've already made plans with my friends for car rides in the morning and to ride with them throughout the day. This is what I really want to do, but I would feel bad about my boss working hard by herself and by letting her down when she kind of went out on a limb for me about this job.

Anna Karenina, and translations

Have any of you read Anna Karenina?

I have read it. I got it from the library.
I want to buy it, because I know I could get more out of it from a few rereads.
But if I'm going to buy it, to spend my precious Christmas money, I want the perfect translation.

I looked up translations on google, and on wikipedia. The best I got was a list in wikipedia, but it's not even complete because it doesn't list the translator of the Anna Karenina I got from the library. (Constance Garnett)

It does mention the translation by Constance Garnett later on--that some critics think it's outdated.

I wanted a site that would, I don't know, characterize each available translation so that I could compare them. Or perhaps print excerpts with the same sentence, so I could at least compare the different translation styles. I didn't find any.

Do any of you have thoughts on translations? Translations on Anna Karenina? Translations in general? Which translation should I get? Are there any other translated works you recommend?

In the movie Beetlejuice, in the scene where Lydia is writing a suicide note in her bedroom, what song is playing in the background?

It's definitely an opera song, but from what opera? Who's singing it? What's the title?

I looked the soundtrack up on iTunes and the only songs it lists are by Danny Elfman & Harry Belafonte, and I know that definitely isn't it. Unless Danny Elfman branched into musical theatre, ha!

lmao I know that's random, but I've always been wondering! Thanks for your help. ♥

1) Does anyone else have difficult writing on the bottom of a notebook page? Whenever I get to the last like 5 or 6 lines of a notebook, my handwriting gets sloppier because I can't balance my hand properly on the edge of the notebook.

2) Do you have any good quotations about friendship, love, and growing up? or What's your favorite quotation? It can be from a movie or lyrics or whatever, I'm not picky.
I'm so pretty

Personally I say yes!

Was having one of my usual odd religious chats, sparked by my always bizarre religious posts, when this came up. Because of it, rather that going on into an extensively lengthy post (preamble is my family's genetic curse), I have one simple question for you.

Can anyone give me some specifics about the cereal diet? Did it, or did it not work for you? How long did you do it? Did it satisfy you?

A friend of my boyfriend said the diet consists of having cereal for 2 meals a day, and 1 meal of something else. But that's all I know about it.

I want to write a celebrity a letter. Yes, this is so nerdy that even I can barely stand it. But I don't think I'll stop thinking about it until the letter is in the mail. But anwyay.. how do I go about getting the mailing address for a celebrity? I want to make sure it is a legit address so I don't just send stuff to some non-existant address. I thought about writing to the TV network their show is on (yes, now you know it is a TV star), but I doubt it would ever get to this person.
Fellow nerds/lurks/creeps(j/k), any suggestions?

So my little cousin Hailey. She is Four years old an in preschool. The other day she apparently said "I can't go to preschool! My hair isn't right!" And she was dead serious, it wasn't some cutsie little thing kids say to get your attention, she was seriously saying the type of thing a middle school student would say. and she is FOUR!!!

Her father is Republican politician who is married to this washed out fat woman who does nothing but says "JAAAAAAY (my uncle) TAKE CARE OF YOUR CHILDREN!" and she dosen't cook or do any housework except buy things...as you can see where Hailey gets it. Meanwhile, her two older brotheres, one has assbergers (no idea how to spell it...so hes not very social at all) and the other one is in sixth grade yet he never stops playing video games and he still loves star wars and none of the kids eat anything but processed food so they're all really pale and heavy.

"I can't go to preschool! My hair isn't right!"

It makes me really fear the future.

i figure this is a long shot, but i guess ill try anyway.

i have a futon that is similar to this:

its a bit different, but thats the closest one i could find to it.
it came from walmart. it was the cheap $100 one.
i know a few people who have one, so it isnt so uncommon.

when the futon is in the couch position, how am i supposed to keep the mattress from sliding down?
ive had it for a year, and dont have the instructions but i have all the little parts for it.
there are a couple of little foam sticky things that could be used to make the mattress stay, but i dont know where i would put them.

does anybody have any idea how to fix it?
or even what im talking about?

Crunchitize me, Cap'n

I actually have a few questions. Hope that's okay.

WARNING: This might be a bit gross.

Number one: Why do I get pimples even though I've tried every product under the sun that promises clear skin?

Number two: Why do I get pimples even though my skin is dry and actually gets sort of peely sometimes? (Also, anyone know how I can stop the peelyness without getting more pimples? I have oil-free moisturizer but I'm afraid to put it on pimple prone areas.)

Number three: If I don't squeeze blackheads, my face looks spotty and awful. If I do squeeze them, I feel like it makes my pores more prominent. Is squeezing blackheads bad and does it stretch one's pores?

Did any of you watch cyber seduction: His Secret Life on Lifetime Network?

It's about a teenage boy who "gets addicted to internet porn" and his parents try all sorts of things to stop his addiction.

I practically grew up with porn, so maybe my experience isn't typical, but how many people actually have a "problem" with porn that isn't really just a symptom of some other problem in their life?



home-made darkrooms?

my mom &i were going to turn my [very sizable] closet into a dark room a couple years ago
but my asshole photo teacher convinced her not to.

for people with home-made ones [preferably not in bathrooms] or smart people that just know how:

what did you use for ventilation?
what did you use for a sink, did you have to have on installed?
how did you make it light-tight [i realize this is probably the easiest part of the project but i'm just curious]

I'm new to this whole anime/manga thing.

I love anime. I was a closet anime fan for a while, but now i'm out and ready to experience new stuff. My faves are Escaflowne, Fulmetal Alchemist, Samurai Champloo, Eureka 7, GetBackers and Bleach. i need to expand. so does anyone have any suggestions?

Also, i only own one manga series and its FAKE by Sanami Matoh. i also own Trash by her as well. so any suggestions on manga to check out? any Yoai Manga to check out too?

Internet phenomenon.

I've been thinking of these for a couple of days. If anyone's already asked them (I looked back like, 200 posts!) I'll be a very sad panda.

Here we go. :)

1- Which internet clique(s)/subculture(s) surprised you to find out existed? (And if all you guys can come up with is furries, that's saaaad... :P)
2- Have you found yourself falling INTO any of these subcultures (either in the above answer, or a different one), because you found you felt an empathy with them?
3- Have you lost (by choice or otherwise) friends, due to them turning to a subculture online, or admitting to being part of one?
4- What seemingly only online subculture would you like to see in real life, for whatever reason? What would you do?
5- (Barely related to the above, hah!) Have you ever found out something you put on the internet was used somewhere without your permission? If so, how did you react?

Bank of America

Do Bank of America ATMs accept cash deposits? I SWEAR someone told me that you can feed cash into an ATM just like a soda machine, and it will deposit into your account the next day.

Important detail: I JUST overdrew my checking account !!! I was *hoping* I could sneak some money in there and avoid the overdraft fee before the bank opens tomorrow.

OK stupid question, but I haven't used an ATM machine in like 7 years. =D

Does anyone remember a show on cable back in the early 90's that was about two teenagers? One was a blonde and kinda pretty and fun and one was a brunette and moody and weird. They were best friends and the show was about the 'realness' of being a teenager? I watched it when I was like 8 and I thought I was doing something bad because it talked about sex and drugs and things. I dont even know what to google.
