2.  What's your favorite quote, and where is it from?  (Including books, movies, comics, or even stuff that someone said at one point.)
I have a hundred and one favorite quotes, but I'm gonna hafta go with this one, from the TV show House:  "You talk to God, you're religious.  God talks to you, you're psychotic."

Working as an interpreter/translator

Has anyone ever worked as a language interpreter?
What has your experience been? Did you get to travel?
How did you go about finding the job in the first place?

I'm a Native Russian speaker and have done some translating work in college, but now I'm thinking of doing something out in the real world, but not sure of how to go about it.
I'd love some ideas, especially of a job that would let me travel.

Last questions before bed.


Every time I watch that commercial it freaks me out a little, I think it's the way the woman moves her head.

What kind of reaction did you have to watching the commercial?
Do you normally get weirded out by people contorting their bodies strangely in any way?

What is the difference between a relationship, and a "friends with benefits" situation?

(I'm especially interested in the large poly section of TQC; the typical answer I get is "exclusivity", which wouldn't exactly work in that situation.)

a hairy question

1. How do you feel about body hair on yourself? Other people? Your significant other?
2. What do you consider to be an 'acceptable' amount of body hair and on what body parts?
3. How do you get rid of your unwanted body hair?

Teeth!

1. Do you brush and floss as often as you should?
2. Do you get dental cleanings every six months?

I've always had an aversion to tooth brushing/flossing. I don't mind the process of it, and I feel much better after being a good person and actually making myself do it, but I hate trying to muster up the motivation. Despite this, my dentist always used to comment about the fabulous condition of my teeth. I never had a cavity until this past year, and it was between my bottom molars.
Really, I just cycle through spurts. Sometimes I'm very diligent, but most of the time I'm lucky if I remember to brush them before I go to class. I'm addicted to Trident. This winter was the first time I've ever missed a six month appointment. I'm a little sad about it, since my hygienist and I always have fabulous chats and she is excellent at not knicking my gums.

3. Do teeth disgust you and/or do you judge people by their teeth?
4. Have you ever had braces?

My roommate absolutely cannot stand people with bad teeth. I put up with them to an extent... If they're bad, though, they're bad. I used to absolutely hate my teeth until I had braces in high school. They're not perfect and they still annoy me, but at least I don't have a huge gap between my front teeth anymore.

5. I used to think that my gums bled because I didn't floss enough, but after years of increasingly compulsive oral hygiene there was no improvement. Then I found out that I have a mild clotting disorder, for which one of the symptoms is gums that bleed easily. And here I thought I was going to be the first ten year old to have dentures because of gingivitis. Did any of you have similar fears when you were younger?

Poems, Marketing

1) What is your favourite poem (not lyrics)? The other day in English class my teacher gave us a poem in which the author talked about the Pope's manhood, so bonus points if it's controversial.

2) Can someone help me find a print advertisement that shows an example of observational learning? Basically, I'm trying to find an ad that shows someone imitating another person or is persuasive in getting a message across to consumers that you need their product/service because everyone has it.

How fast is your internet connection?

I'm not sure how fast the internet at work is (its fixed wireless radio), but I know that if i started downloading a large file, the speed would show about 40 kbps.

Back when my home broadband was working, I had 256 kbps DSL, with 512 kbps at night. (It's the fastest non-commercial connection you can get with a totally flat rate and no download cap. There are faster speeds available, but you have to pay either based on how much you download or by hours, which of course sucks.)

Edit: quick test of my office broadband:

Best place to buy contacts

Hi y’all,

If you wear contacts, could you please recommend me the best places? I’ve heard 1-800 contacts is cheap and reliable enough. Same with Costco. (I already have a prescription)

Anywhere else?

Please help me because I’m going blind...LOL

Okay, thanks in advance! And have a great day!

Why is my right foot bigger than my left?

Is everyone's like that?

If so, why don't they make the right shoe just a smigde bigger than the left?

I ask cause my left shoes always fit, but my fight shoes are always way snug. In fact, I was wearing a pair of shoes that normally don't hurt my feet, but my 2nd smallest toe was digging into the third toe and omg, hurt. like. HAYL! A blister developed, busted, and then the toe continued to dig into it witch caused even more PAIN!

OY!

What makes it WOYSE is that I have GIGANTIC FREAKISH FEETSIES!

I am about 5'6- 5'7 maybe 5'8 and I have SIVE ELEVEN FEET! It's hard enough to FIND size eleven shoes (that aren't gold lemma', silver, or otherwise gawdy as hayl!) that fit nicely, let ALONE find size 11 and a HALF so that my right foot fits too,

1. Now I'm not a regular American Idol viewer, but I have watched it the past two nights because the roomate enjoys it. Anyone else agree that after the last woman last night (LaKesha, I think her name was), the contest should be over and she declared the winner. There wasn't even a contest after she sang. Wow.

owie foot

So for some reason I have an issue with my foot. On the side of it where my little toe attatches to my foot, there is like a lump...

Today for the second time in a couple weeks, I stepped on it a certain way and immediatly felt pain. It feels like a bruise almost, very intense pain though, and it looks kind of purple as well. It really hurts and kind of is a pain when I have to work (im on my feet the whole time). Any idea what this is or what is causing it? It kinda came out of nowhere. It will hurt a few days, then go away, then for some reason I will suddenly feel the pain again and it's back....

I hope that made some sense...

Bluetooth?

I have a Sidekick 3. I love it. But it's awkward to use as a phone - to dial and talk on. We also have a spare flip phone floating around, if I can find it. Both are bluetooth-enabled. Is there any way to link them up and use the spare phone as a bluetooth handset for the SK? Alternately, are there bluetooth headsets around that include a dialing pad? (The SK doesn't have voice-activated dialing.)

I love this, for amusement value, and if it had a keypad built in, I'd own it already. Heh.

A co-worker is being evicted from her house this week (due to her own fault:i.e: underage drinking, whoring around with anyone with a dick ect.) and our boss wants the rest of us to donate/let her "borrow" money for a new place.

1. Do you think is this proper?
2. Would you give up your hard earned money for her stupidity?
3. would you offer any other help other than money?

my answers:

1. No, unless it's for a serious medical issue or something tragic...fire, death or something of that nature.

2. Nope. I bust my ass for what I earn and don't want to enable her to do it again.

3. I would give her the number for welfare or something along that line.

2- Hider. No one ever found me. I started to get an ego problem, that no one WANTED to find me though. ;P
3- Roller coasters! Ones with loops = the best. :D
4- 3 computers (two in use), 2 DSes (one for me, one for husband), xBox, xBox360 and PS2... 8! I know I have a NES and SNES somewhere around, but I don't know where, so I won't count them.
5- Pool. Though I know this is a lie, and I'd just be saying it to look cool. ;) More likely Bejeweled. Buah hahaha. :)

Easter goodies

Right, I know there was a TQC christmas exchange, I didn't participate coz duh, different country, think of the postage! :P
However, I am now suggesting an Easter* goodies exchange - specifically for those in different countries. It is mostly inspired by all the talk of marshmallow peeps. I got a friend to tell me what the hell they were and now I think it would be fun to send people in America\Oz/Europe British Easter treats, like Creme Eggs and get American/Australian\European stuff in return, just to see what it is like. I think it would be fun. Though I could well be doing with getting a life! :p
So what do you say, oh mighty TQC?

* I mean easter = excuse for lots of chocolate not Easter = celebrating resurrection of Christ.
Why should non x-tians miss out on all the goodies? Besides bunnies and eggs have WHAT to do with Jesus exactly?

1. Is there any kind of psychological disorder linked to someone having a habit of hiding trash instead of throwing it away? Like putting empty soda bottles in their closet and food wrappers under their bed. Or is it just a weird quirk someone should probably get over due to the fact it's kinda gross?

2. If someone can function within society but think they're depressed or something, do you think they really need to see a therapist/psychiatrist/whatever?

3. Have you ever been reluctant to seek out psychological help simply because it seems like that's just what everyone else is doing? Like you feel your problems aren't as valid because everyone else is claiming they need to see a therapist twice a week or need to take their medication every morning and you're not sure if you'd have even considered going to seek help if it wasn't such a popular coping mechanism. Or is that just silly?

4. Do you think therapy would work if the person going for it thinks their therapist is an idiot?

Moar cooking questions. D:

What are some good bulk things to invest in for the kitchen? I tend to be the one to make food for my roomie and myself 9 times out of 10, so I'd like to have a stock of things to work with. I have a Sam's Club membership, so I can buy things in bulk from there. Thus far I have chicken, rice, instant mashed potatoes (I can't peel potatoes to save my life) and pasta, but I'm sure there are things I'm not thinking of that would be nice to have to work with...

Also, spices! I need spices. I have salt, pepper, and paprika, but that's it. I have allspice, garlic, and cinnamon sugar on my list, but I'm not sure what others to invest in. Anyone care to share what their spice must-haves are?

Do you find that you learn a lot less when taking a class online and are way less motivated?

For me it depends on the class. I threw stats in this semester because it's a class I always wanted to take but now regret taking it online. I'm not motivated to memorize anything since we take all of our tests online and our professor gives us four hours to complete them.

They are extremely against people living together before they are married (including my fiance and me). It's strange because they know my fiance and I visit each other every weekend and they know we have sex. Whenever we visit my parents they make him sleep in the guest room! We're guests in their home so it's their rules; it's just kinda weird. Any advice? Anyone else have weird parent stories they'd like to share?

I got that thing in 8th grade for my Home Ec class.  Even though I got that in middle school, that assignment was probably the cruelest assignment I have ever had, out of all the assignments that I had in high school and college so far.  The alternative assignment was to write a 3 page paper (in 2 weeks) on how much a baby would cost, and what type of plan I would have to use to take care of a baby.  I could have saved myself so much trouble if I just did the alternative assignment.

I have been using the anti-bacterial stuff everyday... but does this sound like it is infected, or is this normal!?

b) do not leave the house.  Stay where it is warm, read something for fun, or perhaps play video games.

i just got my glasses back with new lenses and they're not what i asked for. i wanted the lightest, highest-index lenses, and i specifically asked for NO anti-reflective coating because i don't drive and therefore really do not need it.

i got 1.67 index lenses (not light enough for me at all) and i did get the anti-glare shit. they're also a little too strong for me. everything looks distorted out of the sides and they're really nauseating me. these glasses are now as useless as they were when they were too weak.

the thing is that i have my receipt here and all of this is written down like i asked for them this way. i didn't. i know i didn't.

i probably can't afford to get another pair of lenses made, though my dad will probably pay for me (i am not proud of this). they charged me for the 1.67 lenses and i'm sure the higher index is more expensive, so even if i go back they'll charge me out of the ass. and it's a far walk to the eye doctor and i don't know if i feel like going back there another two or three times while i wait for my new lenses.

so if you were me, would you call and complain or not? i have no idea how to handle this because there's no proof that i asked for something different than what was written.

I very rarely ask personal questions, so please do not crucify me.

WARNING: PERSONAL ROMANCE QUESTION AHEAD. ENTER WITH CAUTION!




So I'm pretty sure I'm gay. Well anyhoo, tonight I was at the movies and my female freind and I hooked up. It was not at all erotic or sexually arousing, it was just the adrenaline and excitment of it all that sort of made it wild and fun. Really impulsive, you know?


I wasn't at all turned on by her, but I found myself going "it would be fun to kiss her"


What the hell does this mean?

What are some good creative writing activities?
I'm the president/guildmaster of the Creative Writing Guild at my high school, and I want to do something other than assign a prompt or have a poetry reading.
And yes, I googled it, but I wanted to get the opinions+ideas of all you intelligent QC-ers.

Say you find a pet that you bond with instantly, like it was in a room full of other animals and you picked it out of that crowd. You absolutely love it and it's everything you were looking for in a pet, but it comes with a hefty price tag. Would you get the pet, or would you pass it up to look for something cheaper?

Waffles, Indian Food, Eatng.

1. My dad made waffles for dinner tonight. He used baking powder that expired in 1992. Are we going to die?

2. I don't eat meat and I hate spicy foods. I also dislike a lot of things vegetarians are expected to like. What would be the best thing for someone like me to order at an Indian restaurant? What is your favorite thing to get at an Indian Restaurant?

3. Two nights a week I have class from around 5:30 to 10:00. I used to sometimes work similar hours. The problem is it completely fucks up dinner, as I'm used to eating between 6:30 and 7:30. My dad always cooks before I have to leave, but when I get back I'm unnaturally hungry and end up eating way too much. I brought a snack today in hopes of this not happening. However I was still super hungry when I got home. What are the best ways to avoid being so hungry I want to eat everything by the time I get home?

it's a long shot...

I got some of that tiny coloured tubing that kids used to make little ropey things last year. i'm having trouble making a ropey thing and want to google instructions but have no idea what they're called. do you have any idea?

EDIT: apparently they're called lanyards.

1. my boyfriend got a prescription for seroquel to help his insomnia. he takes 25-50mg a night and gets to sleep alright. i heard they give it to schizophrenics and a standard dosage is 800mg. why exactly is it so so high? how does it not knock them out? how can they stay conscious and function?
2. if you saw the name colclough, how would you pronounce it?
3. have you or anyone you know been to rehab? if so, what for, how long, and did you/they get better or relapse?
4. if you have sent a postcard to postsecret, has it ever been posted on the site (postsecret.blogspot.com) or published in one of the books?

Been There... But Not There?!

Have you ever travelled somewhere, but for one reason or another, not been to the OMGMUSTSEE sight (or sights) that people usually associate with that place?

Similarly, have you ever lived somewhere, but not been to the OMGMUSTSEE sights around there?

----

I've been to France, but I haven't been to Paris, so hence haven't seen the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, or suchlike.

I live in Ottawa, but I've never been hiking in the Gatineau Hills, or to Mont Cascades. But I have done most of the touristy stuff here because of a school trip in elementary school before I moved here.

Hm....Home Entertainment Dilemma...

Ok, so I got my sweeeeeeeeeet new 360 finally after what seemed like years. I currently have 3 games(XBL Unplugged, GRAW, and NHL 07) that came along with it. Now..tomorrow, I'll be getting Gears of War or Rainbow Six: Vegas. Which one should I grab?


Also, I heard that CRT tvs arent kind to 360s(or the Wii and PS3 for that matter). So...I'm wondering, is there any place that would sell a 20-25" hdtv capable tv for around $300 and under? Thanks for the help. =)


Eh...would help for me to state I'm in Ontario, Canada X_x;


go me. XD

Have any you done a Detox or Cleansing for diet or health purposes?

If so, did you experience any side effects?

What were they?

How long did they last?



I just started on one for health reasons... it's not even been a full week and I feel miserable right now. Headaches, nausea, exhaustion, dizziness, and I feel like I'm in the bathroom way too often, considering I haven't been eating all that much... ugh. It's driving me nuts, and I just don't want it to last much longer. :P

Our two dogs are beginning to fight all the time in a really vicious way. One of them will get pissed off, and next thing we know they're snarling and attacking each other. My dog is about 50 pounds less than the other dog, so needless to say, he loses. He has claw marks all over his stomach from the other dog- and the smaller one is normally the one that starts it! You'd think he'd learn to stop after we had to pry her off his neck several times. :-\

It's completely random. One will walk past the other and, next thing you know, they're going crazy. I'm really freaked that one of them is going to get seriously hurt. We keep them separated 90% of the time. They're fine during 7% of the rest, but the other 3%... not so much...

They've grown up with each other- he's about two, and she just turned one. This just started about a month ago. They're both fixed. I just feel like moving out with my dog because I'm so worried about this.

What the fuck is causing this, and what can we do to stop it?

Do you call your SO any silly pet names for no reason?
Sometimes I call my boyfriend my squishy, no reason, I just think it sounds cute.

Hypothetical situation time go!
Someone you used to be friends with always cheats in their relationships. They claim to have been pregnant several times, but it's never with the person they're in a relationship with, only with whoever they cheated with that time. This person has a history of manipulating and lying to people to gain sympathy and enjoys being a victim because of all of the attention they get. A few years after whatever falling out that ended the friendship, you hear that they were caught in the act of cheating in their most recent relationship and were kicked out. Even more, they keep asking for money from the ex that kicked them out to abort the baby they say is the ex's.

Do you feel any pity for this person?
Why or why not?

I DESPERATELY NEED NEW MUSIC.

I feel like I've been listening to the new music over and over.

Would you like to recommend me something? Anything!

I don't mind anything, except possibly metal/anything too rock like that will blast my mind.

EDIT: I guess I'll be asked, so I'll include it now. I listen to a whole variety of stuff. The latest things I've been listening to are Michael Jackson, Sufjan Stevens and Elton John. Ok Go and Arctic Monkeys have been past obsessions. My most played include hits from the 70's, mainly because of That 70's Show. I don't mind fast or slow.

Music ?'s

There was a program on CNN on Wednesday called Hip Hop: Art or Poison?. On the show, a poll was taken and 58% of the pollers deemed hip hop to be poison.

1) Is hip hop art or poison?

2) If this poll was taken in 1968 and "hip hop" was substituted for "rock & roll" what percentage of pollsters do you think would deem rock & roll to be poison?

3) Do you consider DJ's (think DJ Premier, Paul Oakenfold, etc not Dick Clark) to be musicians? What about beat makers like Pharrell Williams?

What's a good camera to buy for someone who is looking to get in to photographing bands?
(Brand?  Digital or Film?  Etc).

I really want to get in to photography seriously, but I'm sort of clueless on where to start with the equipment.
