All Killers fans.

Hot Fuss or Sam's Town?

Favourite song from each album?

1. Hot Fuss all the way!
2. Glamourous Indie Rock & Roll
When We Were Young

To be honest I havent listened to Sam's Town enough to have a complete opionion on my favourite song. I can tell thuogh, that this album isn't as awesome as Hot Fuss.
Still ace though, I shall be listening to it a lot more.

This is what I know:

-It's by Suzanne Vega
-It has something to do with a couple going on their second honeymoon in Paris
-the man has a weird dream with people telling him something to the effect of 'you'll be ok'
-the wife gets angry/upset/doesn't understand

does anyone have any clue?

camera question

Has anyone had a camera that decided to do the blue screen of death thing, but with a white screen?

I have a Canon Powershot a540, I've had it since August. Yesterday I used it to take pictures at hockey, and it was fine. I reviewed the pictures after, no problem. I went to take pictures of a second game, and the screen is white. I can vaguely see the different icons on the screen. It still takes pictures just fine.

I had this happen to my old camera, a Sony Cybershot, but it was random and after over 2 years of use.

I'm going on vacation in less than 2 weeks...any idea what happened to it?

I've posted a hypothetical question with a similar angle, but not a poll.

Would you tamper with evidence and tinker with the law to help a loved one avoid the long arm of justice? Keep in mind that if they get caught, they do suffer the punishment in all its harshness, and prison is not a possibility, but a probability if fate is left to its own devices (except the ones that end up was stiff fines).

That being said, who gets helped...and who gets served?

Your best friend has committed a crime and asks you to help her/him dispose of the evidence. Failure to do so will result in them being caught for sure, and paying the legal consequences, be they prison or a stiff fine. Which crimes would you help your best friend get out of?

Robbery/breaking and entering
Using drugs - pot
Using drugs - harder stuff
Dealing drugs - pot
Dealing drugs - harder drugs
Grand theft auto
Public indecency
Drunk driving (you switch seats)
I refuse to get involved
I wouldn't help my friend shirk responsibility for their crime

Your significant other has committed a crime and asks you to help her/him dispose of the evidence. Failure to do so will result in him/her being caught for sure, and paying the legal consequences, be they prison or a stiff fine. Which crimes would you help your significant other get out of?

Your mother has committed a crime and asks you to help her dispose of the evidence. Failure to do so will result in her being caught for sure, and paying the legal consequences, be they prison or a stiff fine. Which crimes would you help your mother get out of?

Okay, so at work me and my fellow army buddies were talking about discpiling our kids and what not. And the question would be:

- Would you allow your bf/gf/husband/wife discipline your child if they werent the father/or mother of your child?

- Do you believe in spanking or whats your form of discpline?

1. I honestly dont know if I would like my gf/wife to discpline my kid. For the fact that they do have their mother and she can do that. Then again kids do need discpline. I know if my son is out of line i would want him to be punished. At the same time i dont think she has the right to yell or scold my son. I wouldnt allow her to hit my son. Because she has no right too. I guess I'm 50-50 on that.

2. I dont believe in hitting, my father did that to me till the day I fought back. I will punish them in forms of time out grounded them, and a scold NOT yell or scare the kid. Decent enough to where they get the point that they did wrong.

headlice, pt II, please answer ASAP!

hi, i'm back, still have lice.
besides the point that i'm going to end up shaving my head, i need an answer for this question asap.

so my ex boyfriend is the douchebag who gave it to me in the first place, and other than the fact that he was CHEATING on me, and lied to my face when we broke up, he is in general a womanizing asshole.

so my question is:
how do i infect the asshole with LOUSE?

i think he pretty much deserves to go through the continuous living hell that i am.
i am pretty sure he got rid of it so i want it to return.

i have his coat, his hat, and his shirt, if there's something i can do with those that doesn't reinfect myself if it does finally exit my head.

this is pretty important to me, i seek revenge in the worst way.
so please answer asap, i'll take any answers. :]

thanks, tqc!

if you're up this late/early, what're you doing?

i don't care if you think i'm immature, or should get over it.
i just want to know what people with REAL answers have to say.
i want revenge regardless, and i know there are ladies out there who feel me on that. so if you're available, please give me a real answer.
i think he deserves revenge, how would you feel if a guy hit you?

and pss;
you're the disgusting one :]

Another licence question..

Does your state require you to have your county that you live in on your license plate?

Why do you think that is?

--my answer--

In Minnesota we don't, but I always thought it would be kinda cool to have it to see how far some people are from their own home. I haven't the slightest idea why some states do this.

has anyone else heard of the new law in alabama where if kids get in trouble at school, the kid doesnt get in trouble... instead the parent gets jailed for like 90 days.

wtf. whats your opinion on this..
i think this is the dumbest thing ever. in some ways it is a parents fault if their child doesnt behave but it also has to do with their enviroment. it just seems really harsh. and i mean what do you want the parents to do... walk around the school behind their child telling them "honey dont do that"

With that said, what organ would you steal from them in revenge?

You meet some awesome person who you fall in love with- and the fact that they have an large amount of money doesn't hurt either. If you stay with them, you'll be taken care of for the rest of your life, and any kids you may have will get everything they could ever need. No worries about money.

However, said person is in the mafia. This is where your significant other's money comes from. Their family has been in it for decades, and they have no plans of leaving their "family."

You are at the point in your life where you're ready to settle down and start a family. If they proposed, would you marry them?

Gender correction question

But not like that.

I am in the process of applying for Real Grown Up Jobs. The problem that just occured (again, this is a recurring problem) is that my name is uncommon, and given that it's uncommon with a hard consonant ending, most people automatically assume it's a male name. (I just got a confirmation email addressed to "Mr. F." when I am "Ms. F." TYVM).

This I am not comfortable with. I'd rather not have them freak out when they realize their mistake, and while I used to sovle this porblem when I was eight by stamping my foot and saying "I AM A GIRL." I don't think that's the best option here and now.

So how do I a) tactfully correct the misunderstanding, and more importantly, b) prevent it from happening in the first place?

I've got a two-part question:

a) I am 20 years old and 110 lbs., very little of which is muscle. I was fairly in shape when I was younger, but I have a lot of joint issues and have a hard time finding things to do that aren't painful. Yoga and I get along well, but what else should I try? I don't really like pilates, and I tried to attend aerobics and was beyond miserable.

b) I went skiing this past weekend and haven't gone since high school. As you may have gathered from part a, it's something I probably shouldn't be doing. Is there any way to effectively wrap one or both of my ankles for additional support without doing more damage via high-pressure points? I'm in the process of looking for new boots, but I'm a college student so finding a decent pair that's in my price range is a little tricky.

Race me. Honestly.

Let's be realistic, we all notice race. Life is not based on race, no. But with any brain at all, we notice it and hopefully embrace the diversity...

1 Is there a race (outside of your own) that you tend to favor in such a way that you are extra kind to them and more prone to giving them the benefit of the doubt?
2 What race would you want to be if you could chose and why?
3 What race do you know the least about?
4 Is there a race or place that you have no interest in exploring? (This is not to be equated with any prejudice, just preference.)

Race me too. Or else.

1) Have you ever had a friend express something blatantly racist to you?

2) What did you do?

3) Are you uncomfortable with racial discussion?

4) Is it possible to make a racial joke without actually being racist?


I'll answer my own questions as well for once.

1) Yes.

2) Argued with them, told them they were wrong, express disappointment. Didn't really feel the same way about them afterward.

3) Not so far.

4) Yes. But most of the people who make them and think they aren't racist really are.

I need new shampoo

For about a year or two now I've been switching from Brilliant Brunette and Garnier but I need something different! I have dark brown hair, and it is very very curly. It really isn't damaged in anyway, sometimes it can get really frizzy and hard to control. Any suggestions?

No drama please, just your own opinions

Opinions please;

Why is that if a male wants to wear a dress or skirt, he is automatically labeled transgendered, & if a 10 year old boy wants to wear a skirt he's taken to therapy?

Yet me, a women who wears male clothes everyday & was copying the boys hairstyles & the way they dressed at age 4 never had anyone so much as bat an eyelid in my direction?

I guess what I'm getting to is, why is that that the general majority believes that men can't wear women's clothing just because they want to, yet women can wear men's?

Playing God

You're a superhero. A bridge just gave way and a few cars are now falling 100' to the rocks below. You have only enough time to rescue 2 of the cars. Your mind-reading ability has informed you about the occupants of the cars

Car 1 - 10-year old girl, girl scout. Her father managed to leap out of the car before it succumbed to gravity

Car 2 - 45-year old soccer mom

Car 3 - three drug dealers, ages 25, 27 and 38

I bought a bunch of tank tops from Old Navy and Target this summer/fall. I washed them at the same time so they all got the same special treatment (cold/cold no bleach). The ones from Target still look great and I wear them every day pretty much (under long sleeve shirts). The Old Navy ones, on the other hand, came out of the wash the first time all splotchy and discolored. Frankly, they look like someone threw bleach on them. It's really frustrating because I love the colors at Old Navy, but if they're just going to get all crappy on the first wash again, I'm not going to go for the orange tank tops. (And I really want me some orange tank tops.)


1. Do you smoke?

2. If so, what brand (and why/how did you being smoking this brand)?

3. How did you get started (and how old were you)?

4. Have the intention to quit anytime soon?

my answers:
1. yes
2. Marlboro lights b/c that's what my ex smoked and I wanted to smell like him (too attached). I also smoke the occasional Kool with my friends that smoke Kools.. I'm trying to quit smoking Marlboro incase my mom finds out (that's what she used to smoke, and I'd hate for her to think I started because of her).
3. My first cigarette? 13 or 14. First time I considered myself a smoker? 16. I smoked every now and then -- then my boyfriend at the time gave me a pack, and ever since then I've been smoking.
4. Sort of, it would be nice if I could quit the cold turkey way, but I doubt I could.

Two 18 year olds want to get married after dating for 2-3 years. They are both mature, have steady, well-paying jobs, graduated from high school, and plan to not have children until they graduate from college.

Two 35 year olds want to get married after dating for several months. Neither one of them can hold a job, or really care to, and have no future plans. They both have children from earlier relationships, but have never been married before, and never went to college.

Which one of these couples would you be more supportive of?

Pirating... yarr.

Anyone know where I can get the song "Reflection" from the Disney movie Mulan? I'm talkin', MP3. :)

Why does the Royal Bank hate me? I applied for a visa and they said some bullshit about how i don't earn enough money to have a regular visa, and how i should wait until im done highschool and get it then, but the thing is! i can't! i'm moving in june and i need it for things like insurance etc etc. So now i'm applying for a student visa right, just it's apparently for university students, but i'm in highschool and don't plan on attending uni for a couple years, do you think they'll accept me? i put other as my school type.

Do any of you have someone you keep on your friends list only because they are a total train wreck?  So basically, you really cannot stand the person but their entries are just so ridiculous/annoying/hilarious/emo that you can't bring yourself to cut them? 

Tell me about the person. 

I recently had a person on my friends list who I had on there for over 2 years... I just loved reading about how she had no idea who fathered her SIX children (she's 24) and she constantly asked people to buy her things.  She also posted nudes of herself pretty much all the time, and you could always see fisher price toys in the background of the pictures. Hawt.  Finally I cut her.

Dirty Man vs. Nerdy Man

Mike Rowe or Alton Brown?

Read into that however you wish. :) A friend just posed this question to me, and oddly enough... I seriously cannot decide. I guess Alton, because at least he wouldn't come home smelling like an ostrich farm.

Would you rather feel pain or nothing at all?

I'm rather partial to feeling nothing, and it is probably why my lief has gone down teh tube. I think I've medicated myself to the point where I am a bit numb.

Recipe question

I just came home from The Outback Steakhouse.  It's been awhile since I was there, and one thing they have added to the menu is several side options, one of which is steamed green beans.  OMG!!!  These were the best green beans I've ever had.  The waitress said they are steamed in a bag in the microwave with "bean spice" and "vegetable butter".  Any idea what bean spice and vegetable butter are?  I have done some searching, but all I can find on vegetable butter seems to suggest it's not what I'm looking for.  Thanks for any help!!

Gift Ideas?

My co-worker turns 22 on Thursday. I haven't known her long, I've only been at my current job for roughly 2 months. She's really nice and she's the one who hired me and we get along well. I figure the least I can do is acknowledge her birthday. Thing is, I don't know her well enough to get her something. Ideas??? Gift card? Idk?!!

Flogging dead horses

How much time should be spent flogging a horse before one can be sure it's sufficiently dead?

Wait, no, that's not what I meant to ask. Though you can answer it if you want.

When I was a young kid, my sister used to insist on going around the place dressed as Robin Hood. And by "around the place" I mean including when we went with our mother to the grocery store, and things like that. We had mugs with our names on, and hers had to say Robin. She refused to answer her own name. She must have been 4 or so, but I'm not sure.

Two questions relating to this:

Did you ever insist that people had to call you a different name?
(I'm told that when I was 2, I wanted to be addressed as Lilypad. I have no memory of this, so it can't really have happened. However, I did change my name when I was 18, so I guess that makes it a yes.)

And, is that sister now:

How did my sister end up?

Suffering from mental illness
An anarchist
A lawyer
Married to a nice young man, with two children
Polyamorous with 15 lovers and multiple step children
Not as crazy as I am

My brand new 500 gig external hard drive fell from the table onto my hardwood floor. Now my computer won't recognize it. Is it totally broken, or is there hope?

(no subject)

"You showed me the world when I was all locked up inside.
You reached out your hand and took me on a magic carpet ride.
One look at your smile and I could see the light shining everywhere.
People like you don't come out of thin air."

"Oh Jasmine.. You don't understand, there's just so much that you don't see.
Just think if you can what growing up had to be like for me.
Your father's a man who taught you who you are. Mine was never there.
So how can you say I don't come out of thin air?

There's so much I want to know."
"You've got the chance to learn."
"If it means I'd have to go.."
"I'd be right here when you return..

"Our wedding can wait," "I love you."
"I think it's worth this small delay." "Maybe you're right."
"And won't it be great to have your father see our wedding day?"
"I've waited so long."
"It isn't too late" "to learn the truth."
"And now at last we can finally say,
Your father is really there."
"There's so much that we might share."
"Then you'll finally learn.. you don't come out of thin air."

Did anyone else absolutely fall in love with that song from Aladdin and the King of Theives when they heard it?

What's your favorite Disney movie?

What's your favorite Disney song?

Whose your favorite Disney princess?

Whose your favorite Disney couple?

Anyone ever been to Disney World/Land?

[[My answers]]

Yes. I adore that song.

Either Aladdin and the King of Theives, Lion King 2: Simba's Pride, or Hercules.

^^^That one up there.


Jasmine and Aladdin or Kiara and Kovu.

Yes, Disney World. I was one and a half and I don't remember a thing.

I think it's smurfy to have such a smurfy LJ community.

1) If you could choose a scene from any movie or TV show and then live it through the eyes of a certain character, which scene would it be? Which character? Why? Would you change what originally happened?

2) Who was someone you wanted to kick in the balls/ovaries during high school? Why? (A girl named Jade and a guy named Kenneth in my 8th grade math class. The biatches cut my hair as a joke. Its been a few years but I doubt I'll be forgetting that any time soon.)

3) The funniest prank phone call you ever did/got?

4) Best kind of lip balm to use? (I find that Chicken Poop works very well.)

5) What's one of the meanest things you've ever done?

6) Did you ever get a moment of sweet revenge on someone? What was it?

7) You're going to be stranded in a hotel room for a week with no way to get out. What are five things you need and one person you would want to have with you?
The Dude Abides

TV ?

For those that actually watch TV, what are some show that everyone talks about, but that you've never seen a complete episode of?
Lost, Prison Break and ER

I need to edit a bunch of DV footage over the next week. I can't see myself having to edit very much for a good while afterwards (it's for university), so I don't want to pay for Final Cut Pro. (I could use iMovie, but I'd rather something more professional. And some of the clips are long, and I've have trouble with longer clips in iMovie before.)

I was looking for any free trials of Final Cut Pro online, but I can't find any. The Mac website tells me to try Boris Red 4.1, but I've never heard of it.

So. Does anyone know either

A) Where I can find a free trial (like for 30days or something) of Final Cut Pro? (Doesn't even have to be the newest version.)


B) Anything about Boris Red? I'll probably give it a try anyway, but does anyone know how similar to Final Cut Pro it is?

1- Does anyone else miss the really hormone-riddled loon-fest that was the reality tv show "Paradise Hotel"? I wanted to beat the unholy hell outta the 'winner'. :) So help me.

2- Are you a God Warrior?

3- The hell does "a href" stand for anyway?
3b- Do you ever think 'ah! ref' when you type it out, or am I just really insane?

4- Have there ever been TQC meetups arranged?
4b- If there was one around you, would you go for whatever reason you desire?

5- How often during the course of your day do you have to make a decision on something or other, and ponder asking this place which route you should go?

No answers from me. :P

Ok, I bought some brie cheese and aside from the paper and container it came in, it has a white, sort of waxy, flaky exterior. Is this part of the cheese or what? It's hard to remove. I've never bought brie before so pardon my ignorance.

Also, what were your first favorite films? Mine were Amadeus and My Neighbor Totoro.

Colleges - CGI

Recently I've been thinking about changing my major from Psychology to Graphic Design/Film (animation).
I love working with photoshop (atm, I am completely self taught). I have great skills in photomanipulation and the like. But here's the problem.. I can't draw! Do you think I would need to be able to draw well to do well in Graphic Desgin? My ultimate goal I think would be to make CGI for games/movies.

Also, what colleges in the North East (America) is good for that stuff?

Another post...

1. How many of you believe in divination? If so what forms?

2. Have you ever traded readings on teh interw3bs? If so, how long, with who, what kind?

3. Are you psychic?

4. If you are psychic, you can probably see the life crisis I am experiencing right now. In fact, tonight as I dream, I'll be sure to leave some of the energy there for you to pick up on. If TQC's psychics could join together and please answer me these questions: what do you think is wrong? And how should I approach it? What do you believe the outcome will be? Any DANGER: WILL ROBINSON moments on the horizon?!

Inspired by this post.

I was a cashier at one of my campus snack bars for a few months, and one of the workers owned a Disney mix CD which she would play all the time. The other cashier on my shift and I couldn't stand listening to it, but literally every single other person who walked in, for the whole four hours of my shift, loved it.

Is there anyone besides me who doesn't like Disney music (or Disney itself, for that matter) even the tiniest bit?

Sorry for the negativity... I just want to make sure I'm not the only one. :P
