she likes me, she likes me not...

If someone you have a crush on, and make out occassionally (though never sober), said to you "It's like you're like my secret girlfriend/boyfriend". Would you take that as an insult or a compliment.
Confusion coming from it being a)Compliment because they feel as though you're sort of almost dating or something, which implies a growing closeness. Or b)Insult because secret implies they dont want others to know about said closeness.

Regardless, of how you'd take them saying that, would you give them a (small) valentine?

and the search begins...

Where can I get my hands on the song "Glass Vase, Cello Case" by Tattle Tale? I recently rediscovered the song when watching "But I'm a Cheerleader!" and now I'm obsessed with finding their '95 album Sew True, or at least the song.

I can't buy it from iTunes or Amazon (the CD isn't made any more). Napster and BT don't have it. Before I go hunting high and low through every music place in seattle, does anyone own it and can maybe burn it for me? Or point me to where I can download it?

edit: thequestionclub = god. thanks guys :]

i know i've posted too many questions today but i have one more.

see, when i was at home for winter break, my father took away my adderall, which is prescribed to me and i have NEVER and WOULD never abuse them, and he hid them, and refuses to send them to me at school.  He won't even tell me why, but I guess he thinks I'm abusing them, which he had no proof of.... annnd  i guess you could say he's just being an asshole....  Problem is um i can't pay attention in class, especially the ones that go for about 3 hours. 

And... I really don't want to go through another semester where I don't do as well as I wanted to.  So I guess my question is since I'm ADHD and it's really hard to just snap out of it and pay attention, does anyone know what I can do to solve the problem for the time being, until i can get my own prescription?

did you have a secret in highschool that you would have never told ANYONE not even your best friends, because if it would of gotten out people would have talked about it alot/made fun of you/ ruined your rep? did you tell anyone AFTER highschool because well, after highschool, nobody cares anymore.

answer: I went to a small school where everyone knew everyone and one night there was a huge party in a field and everyone was camping and I ended up fooling around with a guy in my class, ( we were really drunk) and my friend was sleeping right beside us in the tent but never found out, and we NEVER talked about it again, even thought we had classes together. if people would ahve found out they would have made fun of me until graduation! because we were in 2 totally different cliques and well i went to school with a lot of very judgemental people. then after we graduated I told the friend that was in the tent with us  and she was like WHAT! WHILE I WAS THERE? and she had no idea this whole time.

What non-pornographic movie(s) do you watch for pornography use?


Mostly directed at women, but boys can answer too! Would you rather

A) discuss marriage with your partner from early on and know from the beginning you are going to marry each other eventually?

B) not really talk about it and eventually be completely surprised when he/she/it pops the question?

My personal choice... b. I like mystery.

Has anyone kept track of the number of times this community has been asked about its virginity?  Seriously.

Also, how would you describe the feeling you get when you put on clothes fresh from the dryer on a cold day?  I call it comforting, and I think my nether-regions call it "Jesus Christ it's about time..."

I've never understood this

11:46 AM 1/1/07 · Okay, for the longest time we've had women who were (how to put this gently?) huge. They have put forth the concept that they are natural women...as opposed to those that are frighteningly thin. We're talking the skin & bones crew like, say, Nicole Richie or worse.

Yes, there really is worse.

However, in this country inparticular, there's been an enormous campaign against the fact that because of trans·fats and a number of other less than healthy attributes in our food has caused people to be tremendously obese. We're worried about our kids being too fat and the adults they become being unbelieveably overweight. It's a strain on the heart, doesn't due much of any good for any number of other biological systems...in fact I can't think of one part of the body it does any good with.

So, why is it that "natural women" were touted so long as being the ideal when they were actually very unhealthy?

What's the best make-up?

I don't wear make up, have no compulsion to try the crap, but my big brother is getting married for the first  (and we pray only) time and I am going to go as his little sister and not his little tomboy. I even bought a DRESS and am going to by DRESSY SHOES and am going to attempt the MAKE UP stuff.. I may even attempt to lose an itty bitty bit of weight (I don't do the diet thing. I'm trying to eat better that's all.)

this could turn out to be a complete catastrophe. So I'm beeeeegggging.

What are the best brands of make up?
Is powder better than liquid?
I blow my nose a lot, is there a base coat (whatever it is called) won't come off if I blow my nose.


Please save me from my own self.

It's greatly appreciated.

Nextel Data Cable

Are there any Nextel data cables that are compatible with Windows Vista Home Premium with Media Center? Before when I had XP Media Center Edition the USB cables for Nextel Iden phones weren't compatible for some reason. Any help or suggestions on how to get MyJal (or another program?) applications, ringtones and wallpapers to my i580 would be highly appreciated!

1. what is your interpretation of what the hell happened in the movie Stay?
2. is there a website or something where they give explanations of confusing movies? i've always wondered.

showers, credit card bills, and nail polish names.

1. When I take an usually long and hot shower, my knees feel weird when I get out. They don't hurt, it's more like it feels like they don't want to bend all the way or something. Do you know what I'm talking about? Should this concern me?

2. For those of you who pay your credit card bill online, have you ever had any trouble with it? Have you ever hear any of the paying-your-credit-card-bill-online horror stories that my father has claimed exist?
I would much rather pay mine online but my father has greatly advised me against it. It seems like it takes Capital One forever to get my check, I takes them like 15 days it just seems easier to do it online.

3. If you're wearing nail polish right now, what is the name of the color?
I'm wearing Chapel of Love on my fingers, and Lincoln Park After Dark on my toes.

Should I go to the doctor?

I've had a cold since Thursday. Friday was probably the worst day (symptoms-wise), but I can't say that I've improved significantly. My symptoms are:

- scratchy throat
- cough (goes back and forth between a dry cough and a rattly cough)
- sinus pressure
- stuffy and/or runny nose
- swollen throat (sometimes very sore/swollen, other times only slightly swollen)

I don't like to go to the doctor unless it's absolutely necessary. I'm not sure if I should wait a couple more days, or go now. I called out of work on Sunday and today because of it. I didn't want to spread germs, plus working with this cold zaps my energy.

Should I go to the doctor? When should I go?

(If you're wondering, I've only been taking generic Benedryl and using Chloraseptic spray for my throat, as well as drinking a lot of juice.)

For the cat owners...

I know nothing about owning cats (I've only had dogs), and I was thinking of getting one. I want it for companionship because my house is very quiet and lonely when I'm there on my own.

1. I was told it is better to keep a cat indoors. I'm just not convinced. I'm worried that my lounge room can't offer enough mental stimulation for it to not get bored. Are cats happy to sit around all day?

2. Do cats get lonely? Is there a way to prevent this without adding more pets/staying home?

'I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU NEED, LIKE I SAID GIVE HIM A SECOND AND HE MIGHT KNOW.' {i didn't yell this, i told him rather calmly} his ass is going to walk towards my co-worker (who is STILL with his customer) and ask him 'do you know anything about this order? because she doesn't'. the customer that he was originally with was just like O_o 'go help him, he looks like he needs it and i can wait'.. so of course my co-worker knew what the guy needed and sent him on his way. but UGHHHHHHHHH why did his dumb ass self have to be so damn rude?!

I've been neglecting my relationship with MAD magazine lately, but was re-inspired by an old copy lying about the house to check out some new copies.

In addition to the regular issue, there was something called Mad Classics, and the subscription form in the front of the magazine says something about ordering regular issues + the 'classics'.

So are these 'classics' a new name and watered-down format for the super specials? Do the super specials still make their way to the shelves, or are they now a fading memory?

1- Just how many of those 'what are you doing on valentines' or 'omg i hate valentines, do you too?' posts have you responded to? Do you keep your answer the same, or change it up a bit each time for fun?

2- Do you think that people who tell wild stories are always lying/exaggerating, or do you believe there's honestly people out there with lives that are just really whacked out? (Asking cuz someone mentioned I have a really wild life. I don't anymore, but I like mentioning old experiences. If I exaggerated, I'd have to claim to be a god or something...)

3- When, if ever, can someone be excused for being ignorant of something? Does it matter how significant to your life the thing is? (like, someone doesn't know how every religion on earth works, but you get mad because you are a religion major or something... I suck at examples.)

4- Do you ever seek out questions by individual users here, if you're a 'regular'? If you're not a regular, HELLO NOOB! ♥ :D

5- Do you stock up on things the day/week after a national holiday? What sort of stuff?

1- I think I've responded to one. I'm too tempted to make up stupid things to answer the others seriously.
2- After all the crazy things I've seen, I know anything is possible. I like to think I listen to people with a fairly open mind. :)
3- Always. Then I can corrupt them with my false information. :D Nothing is that important in my life that I'd battle someone to the death about it.
4- Yes. Not saying who. :X
5- Yes. Chocolate! :D And sometimes Christmas decorations that aren't very Christmassy (like garland that has stars and moons... I need more.)

Scenario: You are on the Metro/Subway/commuter-train-of-choice, merrily (or not so merrily) making your way to work. Suddenly, motion sickness overtakes you. You are going to blow chunks, and blow them now! Luckily, the train is pulling into a station, so you quickly get off. Here's the problem. There is no way you are going to make it out of the station to where you can quietly throw up in the grass somewhere. In the station there are trash cans, but they are all capped and can only be accessed from the side, which would require you to stick your head through a hole in the side and into the trash can. Other than that all you have are tile floors, stone benches, escalators, an elevator, and the tracks.

So, where do you vomit?

Almost immediately, my mother emptied the nicer of the pots/vases, and bought cheap fake flowers to arrange in them. They are currently on display in various places in my parents' house. As far as flower arrangements go, I guess they're kinda pretty, but it sort of creeps me out. Thoughts? Clever recycling method/memorial or just plain fucking weird?

a. Not seeing it coming (eg, getting an axe to the back of the head), but you have to bare the pain for 10 seconds before you die.

b. Seeing it coming for 10 seconds (eg, someone holding a gun to your head & counting down), you have to bare the terror of knowing you're going to die but your death is quick & painless.

Dental Question

I have a cavity. I called to make the appointment to have it filled, and was informed my dentist will be doing a labial veneer chairside, not the usual "filling".

This procedure costs about 3x more even with my insurance, and I'm not too keen on dropping $100 if I don't have to.

When asked for an explanation on the difference in procedures (filling vs veneer), the receptionist told me to just ask the doctor when I come in. However, I'm a little wary. She also said that the office has nixed all of the metal type fillings.

Am I just out of the loop here? I've tried google and haven't gotten an understandable explanation on what a labial veneer is and how exactly it fills a cavity either.

Anyone know what I'm talking about, and if so if my dentist is just trying to make a fat profit off my co-pay???

I just got home from the vet, one of my cats has been peeing everywhere but the box on and off for a while. This round we're testing to see if she has hyperthyroidism. If she does the treatment will cost over $1100, which I know I'll pay because she's my little buddy and one of the sweetest cats I have ever known.

1)What's the most you've paid for your pet's medical needs?
2)What's the most you're willing to pay?

1)$600 dental with extractions my other cat. The little bugger had an extra set to teeth growing under his gums and into his jaw bone.

2)The most I'm willing to pay, I honestly don't know. It's one of those things I guess I won't know until I face the situation. I think I'd pay for anything as long as it was reasonable and realistically improve the quality of my cats' lives.

I don't dance. My boyfriend doesn't really either. Though, he will...if an event calls for it.

We've been "talking" about getting married lately. Nothing too serious, mostly all in fun. We've been talking about WHAT THE HELL to do at our wedding reception? I would honestly feel out of place at my own wedding if dancing was a main attraction. Can you think of anything else to do?

Judge Judy...did anyone see the one today with the child porn thing going on?  I wonder what she saw in those pics that pissed her off?  That guy freaked me out.  I wish she did follow ups.

As a follow up: why do you think some adults are attracted to children?  Why do you think more women aren't caught?

Edited to add:

Here's the low-down:

A couple rent a house and move in, pay their dep. and first month rent.  They NEVER pay again, citing that carpeting was not changed and the man had other bills to pay due to a divorce.  They are suing to get their deposit back (even though the NEVER paid rent) because the house was a slum etc.  Judy is all like NO.  They were also suing because the landlord filed a flase police report because the LL saw matresses with cameras surrounding them and found pics of the couple involved sexually with their kids.  Cops find nothing but LL took pics and Judy reviewed them and called the couple weird for whatever it is she saw.  Now I know I heard her saw that some of the pics involved kids, but it sounded like a majority was just regular porn.  The whole time though the male half of the couple is just standing there with a smirk on his face and the female said nothing.

My university is notorious for not canceling class even though it will be 0 degrees outside and snowing like crazy. it started snowing last night and hasn't stopped. CLASS = CANCELED. we got the official email this morning!

Supposedly, the last time class was canceled was some time in the 70s.

I've got one more!

What song(s) do you think should NEVER be sung karaoke.

Have you ever heard someone attempt them?

I went out the other night, and some guy sang Stairway to Heaven (Led Zeppelin) and Bohemian Rhapsody (Queen). I'm a fan of both songs, but I don't think anyone should even attempt them.

(However last seasons American Idol STUNNED me as Kelly Pickler (sp?) sang Bohemian Rhapsody and did a GREAT job in my opinion...)

song question.

This has been bugging me and my bf forever.  Actually like 4 days.

Does anyone know the name to this one song they've been playing on the hiphop/r&b stations alot, its like one of those "We're gonna make it through, we'll be together forever" songs?  One of the lyrics I remember was like "girl hold on, hold on tight".  I googled it and got nothing.  The theme of the song is like they've been together for a while, through thick and thin and he's telling her to hold on for a bit longer, they'll make it through.

It sounds like R.Kelly but my boyfriend insists its not, and I looked at some of his music and it wasnt there.

Its not "Lost without U" by Robin thicke
and its not that song by Lloyd 

Please help!!!

Windows Movie Maker Question! YAY!

Another computer question from me! Yay!!

Ok, I'm trying to make a 'Best of The Colbert Report Jan 2007' dvd for myself/anyone who really wants it, and I'm having a lot of trouble with Windows Movie Maker. I tried importing the episodes so I can go through the clips and make my movie, but I keep getting this error message

The file C:\Documents and Settings\Ilyse Rose\Desktop\Videos\2007[1].01.08 - Ethan Nadelmann.avi cannot be imported because the codec required to play the file is not installed on your computer. If you have already tried to download and install the codec, close and restart Windows Movie Maker, and then try to import the file again.

Codec? huh...
What do I do??

At first I got a message saying that the "download codec automatically" box wasn't checked in options, so I went to options (after searching for about 5 minutes) and checked that box.
Now I'm getting this. I restarted WMM, but I don't know what to do.

Is there any other free program I can download/use to make this? What can I do about this "codec" situation??

TIA Guys!

Weee! A poll! Because I'm curious.

How often do you post questions?

I post questions a lot (several times a week).
I post questions frequently (once a week on average).
I post questions occasionally (once a month).
I post questions infrequently (every few months).
I never post questions.

How often do you answer questions?

I answer everything. Always. It's a compulsion.
I answer frequently (more than 75%).
I answer regularly (about 50%).
I answer infrequently (25% or less).
I randomly answer questions, but with no regularlity.
I never answer questions, only polls.
I never answer any questions, except this one.
I never answer any questions...oh shit...
I only reply to picture posts.

I figure that about 5% of any online forum is active at any one time (I did the maths on several mailing lists I was on YEARS ago (hey I was sick and bored!) and want to see if that works for here too.

1 Also, if you only ever reply to the picture posts, why?

2 Though this may defeat the purpose...if you never post a question or a reply, why are you here? Have you forgotten about us? Are you just a peeping tom?
2a Why do you think some people are here but never post a question or reply?

3 What's your favourite sort of cheese? Does your answer change if it's for different uses (like, to have on a sandwich, to snack on, to have with crackers, for cooking, etc)?

4 For those who care about such things, what house at Hogwarts do you think you'd be sorted into, if you were to attend, and which would you be in, if you had a choice?

5 If you were on Deal or No Deal, and you've knocked out several of the big bucks, but not THE big bucks, would you keep playing on, taking risk after risk, or would you wait for a good offer from the bank and deal?

Okay, I'm getting clues about this person, and I'm sopposed to figure it out.
Now, one of the clues is, "My grandmother says it's called gravy not sauce... and ketchup is a sacrilege in my family, then again she's the one who loves tripe."

Is there a location (area) that you know that maybe narrows down my search of where the person lives in... the USA. Like, south/ northeast. etcetc Or maybe an ethnicity that cooks with tripe? I dunno. lol

edit/PS: She says that she's really from South River (but obvi doesn't live there now).

Notebook Computer Questions

1.  Has anyone ever had experience with a TV tuner (such as this) in a notebook computer?  Does anyone know to what extent they work?  My point of wanting one is to record some things off of some network channels, but I'd like to record some stuff off of cable channels as well.  Do they use an antenna?

2.  I have a printer that's bluetooth compatible if I was to get an adapter for it.  If I were to get a computer that's also bluetooth compatible, would I have to plug the part of the adapter into the USB port, or would it work without that part of the adapter?

Thank you!!

Okay, a bit of a weird question here...

I'm writing a story for the anime Meine Leibe, which is set in a fictional country in Europe in 1935. I'm presuming for reasons known only to my subconscious that the country is somewhere in the region of Germany.

Now I'm extremely hampered by being from North America and having only a general knowledge of European geography, so.

Given the technology level at the time, and the fact that the boy in question is EXTREMELY rich, what would you suppose would be the most logical port for him to leave from if he wanted to take a ship to Japan? Would he have to go to France or something and then sail all the way around Africa, or is there a way to bypass that part of the trip? I don't need a whole lot of detail, but I'd like to toss a city name or at least country name out in the fic and I'm lost.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

3. Does it ever get on your nerves when people don't comment on your entries?

4. Can you suggest an online store with cute, but not too expensive, jewelry like charm bracelets??

How would one go about removing a lot of superglue from plastic ?

Background : My boss hates us turning up the radio when a song we like comes on. She constantly turns it down/pulls out the plug and we constantly turn it back up. Before she (although she never admitted it was her) hid the radio under the worktops. NOW the latest radio drama. Someone has SUPERGLUED the volume button so that we can't turn it up (3 guesses who) it's barely audible.
My boss is not working tomorrow and I want to unstick the volume button (and then superglue it again at a much louder volume maybe :p) But I've no idea what to do. Me and my workmates have already tried acetone, pliers,(and various other tools in our lab) and stabbing at the lump of glue with a knife. What's>superglue ?

Any help much appreciated.

EDIT: She won't fire me, my uncle is her boss so it's not even up to her. I've been here a hell of a lot longer than she has (3 & 1/2 years - 6months)
And it's not anything to do with the customers. I work in the lab in the back of the shop. When we had the volume button we tried the different levels we could have it before it was heard out in the shop. It could go pretty damn loud.
As forbeing immature, at least I'm 16, the rest of the people involved in this are in their 30s. I think it's pretty immature to hide and superglue the radio anyway.

So every weekday I wake up, shower, attend school in the morning, and then from 1:30-5:30pm I go to work. Some week nights I hang out with my friends, and other week nights I stay at home and lounge. My weekends usually consist of me sleeping in from my previous, exhausting week, and then doing things with friends again or staying at home and lounging.

Basically, I'M BORED. Thanks to my job, my life is so routine now that it's just boring. Does anyone else have this complaint? Does anyone have any ideas as to how I could mix it up a little?

Yesterday in English, the professor was asking a whole bunch of questions. If it applied to you, you were to raise your hand. The questions were pretty general, so a lot of people were raising their hands. Then the professor asked, "Were you raised around someone with prejudices?" Since everybody had been raising their hands the whole time, I figured a whole bunch of other people would raise their hands again, so I did. I was the only one who did. For some reason the teacher decided to concentrate on me and kept asking me more and more questions about the prejudices in my house (she couldn't get over the fact that my dad can be extremely racist) and it was very embarrassing. I felt almost like I had been singled out and noticed that after class, nobody talked to me on the way out like they usually do, which was probably the worst part of it.

Have you ever felt singled out by a teacher? If yes, how?

Was it a single event, or was it continuous?

Did this have any effect on your life outside of the classroom?

Have you ever experienced a time in your life with intense paranoia of dying? A friendly acquaintance of mine from high school died in a car accident a few weeks ago. Even though I didn't know her that well, it really shook me up. Now whenever I'm driving I get these random thoughts like, "What if this is the last song I listen to..?" and just feel kinda overwhelmed thinking I will, in fact, die a specific way. It really freaks me out.

My dad passed away from cancer when I was 15, so it was then that I really learned to appreciate each day. Now, it's been exacerbated by this whole ordeal. That may not seem like a bad thing, but really valuing each moment has its catch. It makes me even more sad that my life will someday end.

Jeez, I sound like I belong on Sally Jesse Raphael. My apologies :( At least it's a deviation from the "OMG WHAT DO I GET MY BF FOR V-DAY HE WEARS SOCKS AND LIKES PSP!!!" questions.

Bottom line: How do you cope when faced with your own mortality?
