1. I'm doing an internship at a magazine and today I noticed the hand (right) that uses the mouse at my desk gets pretty sweaty. Besides wiping my hand and trying to subtly wipe the mouse with my then dried off hand, what can I do? My desk is in a really open area so it'd have to be subtle. I know it's not the temperature that's causing it because it's freezing out and although the office isn't cold, it's not hot either.

2. I'm starting a job at a retail store next week; any tips? Things I should know/expect? It sells shoes as well if that matters.

3. How do you know what doors to exit from on the subway in your city (if they alternate)? Is it just something you learn over time or is there some sort of secret way to know that I'm missing?

4. What do you do while on the subway? Do you read, just sit there, play eye tag with the other passengers, etc?

Thanks :)

Hey TQC:

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how to ask a ladyfriend of mine if she would be interested in having "bennefits." (I am a guy, for what it's worth)

1.  Anyone know anything about this site WEGOT shows? As in have you used it?  Any problems with spyware and that type of junk? 
    I just found it using Stumbled Upon and it's got ton of stuff I've been wanting (The Man Who Fell to Earth being what I'm wetting my pants to see!!!)  to see but I am not looking to fry my lap top.

2.  I have tons! of pictures on my computer and I'm worried about something happening to it and thus loosing all of my precious memories.  But...trying to copy all of them to disk is time consuming and you just can't fit that many pics on a CD.  Can I compress photos?  Would that work and would it allow me to get more on a disk?

Thank you Thank you!

weight loss

Ok, question time. Whee.

1. I know that you can buy fancy wireless headphones for the tv, but they cost like 70 bucks. Would there be any way to hook up plain headphones and maybe those headphone extender cables to the tv so I could switch between headphones and speakers without having to crawl behind the tv to rehook things every time?

2. Is it possible to hook up a Playstation 2 to the computer so that the game and controller are hooked to the PS2, but the image shows on the monitor and the sound runs through the computer?

3. Can you think of some other option where I could play my games and listen to the sound without disturbing anyone else? (Basically, I'm nocturnal and I'd like to be able to play some of those cool survival horror games without the screaming and shooting waking up the rest of the household.)

Okay, I heard this song on someone's Myspace (cue groaning) yesterday, and it was upbeat and repeatedly said "Show me your tits," alongside other lyrics that weren't as catchy. It was a Myspace-supported song, so it was on the website at one time.

When I went back to the page a few hours later, to find out who it was so I could download it, the song was gone. I Googled extensively, but couldn't find anything relevant. I'm not "friends" with the person, so I didn't/couldn't ask them for the name and artist (not to mention I probably couldn't find them again if I tried).

Does anyone know the song that I'm talking about? I do hold cheesy songs close to my heart, and would like to know what the song is.

P.S. I'll cross-post this to a song-specific community later if no one can help me out.

About a week ago we were discussing the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass in my English class.  My teacher was leading the seminar and was asking questions to keep us going.  One questions she asked (and she admitted that it was an unfair question, but asked it anyway) was "Would you rather be a slave or a slaver holder?"

Most of the people in my class said that they would rather be a slave because they would at least be able to live witha clean conscience and all that, but 4th period mostly chose slave holder because, even though no one really wants to be either, being a slave is way worse than being a slave holder (for all the obvious reasons).

So TQC, would you rather be a slave or a slave holder?  And why?

Edit:  I''m talking slavery in the southern US, way back to before the Civil War.

If you've ever lost a significant amount of weight did you notice a difference in the way strangers treated you? Did you find it kind of disappointing?
I've still only lost 50 lbs, but lately I've noticed strangers treating me differently. Way more people open doors for me, and it feels like people who work in stores are nicer to me. Of course the people in Sephora are still assholes, but I think they're that way to most everyone. It kind of disappoints me actually.

Have you ever absolutely hated someone a close friend or family member was dating? Why did you hate them? Did you do anything about it?

I feel horrible for hating my brother's girlfriend, but she just treats him like crap and is always so dramatic about everything. She called him and said she was going to kill herself, so he ran across town to stop her and she just shrugged and said she wasn't really, then got mad because he should have been able to tell she was joking. She's extremely jealous, to the point where she screams at him if she sees him talking to other girls, and she's just so manipulative and I hate that she taking advantage of my baby brother like that. I honestly don't know what to do, but every day he spends with her he gets more and more depressed because of the way she treats him.

Computer Question (sorry)

I apologize for the computer question; I know they can get annoying. I'm pretty savvy with figuring out how to do things on my computer, I'm relatively clueless when it comes to hardware and the like.

Recently my computer has become very, very slow. Whereas previously the computer would make "thinking noises" when I did something like click a link or open a program, now it's "thinking" almost constantly. Sometimes if I click a link, it'll take about ten seconds before it arrives to its destination. It's really frustrating.

How can I fix it? I've defraged it and run a spyware and virus check recently, and it hasn't helped. Is it that I have too much stuff on my computer? Would buying an external harddrive to hold stuff like music and movies help solve the problem?

I'm an American, and sometimes when I watch British TV it takes me a while to realize when a character has an American accent. It's like my brain recognizes the accent as familiar, but assumes that "familiar" must mean "like all the other ones on the show" and thus doesn't realize that it's different.

Does this happen to anyone else?

Silence of the Lambs overanalysis

For those who saw the 1991 Academy Award winning film Silence of the Lambs, here's some questions:

1) Remember that scene at the end where Clarice Starling is stalking Jame Gumb in the basement, and she discovers poor Catherine Martin in the well, and she's telling her everything is going to be fine, and then Catherine Martin says "Get me out of here you fucking bitch" and then continues to curse when Starling goes off to find Jame Gumb. Is it just me, or was that really rude. I mean, I know your nude in a well in the basement of a serial killer and all, but please. Do not bite the hand that feeds you, or in this case, drags your ass out of the well.

2) How *DUMB* was it of her to even help the guy out in the first place. What idiot gets into some stranger's van AT NIGHT to help him move a couch.

3) Did you notice at the end when they are leading her out of the house, she had "Precious" in her arms. Wonder if she kept the dog after all was said and done.

Do you think it's bad to not have access to a full-length mirror?

I was at a hotel a couple weekends ago and in the mirror, I could see my ENTIRE naked body and suddenly I realized I hadn't looked in a full-length mirror for over a year, since living in this apartment (with a couple traumatic exceptions that involved dressing rooms at clothing stores).

I can't decide if this is a good thing (I can't overanalyze my body, my clothes, my appearence and I can't obsess) or a bad thing (I don't know my ass looks fat in these jeans and can't count on my husband to tell me the truth, maybe I'll gain a lot of weight and not be able to properly tell, not be able to tell how clothes fit on me, etc.).

So my questions are--

1) Could you handle being without a full-length mirror?
2) Do you think it's good or bad to not have one?

Can't get it out of my head

This morning my father had a seizure while I was in the shower. When I came out, I found him on the floor, nose bloodied and trying to get himself into a chair. I ran over and asked him what had happened and he looked up at me with the most scared and confused look on his face and said, "I don't know." I then asked him if he knew who I was and he again said, "I don't know."

This was the single scariest moment of my life. I thought he had a stroke and he was never going to remember who I was. Seeing the look of utter confusion in my father's eyes when I asked him if he knew who I was is something that will haunt me for the rest of my life. He couldn't recognize his own daughter. I'm pretty sure I will have nightmares about this.

Do you have a memory that haunts you to this day? What is it?

P.S. My father is fine now. I called 911 and by the time the ambulance arrived he was remembering things. He just got home from the hospital and he's doing well. He has a nasty headache but he's going to be ok.

I wanted to take a quick moment to recognize everyone who took the time to answer my DVD question.

None of you actually answered the damn question... I ask for DVD picks, and you want to e-peen about the size of your DVD collection, or random esoteric DVDs you own, and how devestated you would be if they got stolen. With the exception of fourcorners who provided some great advice on getting good deals from Columbia House. I was looking for help picking out movies, and you utterly failed to provide any.

This of course, brought the following question to mind...

Have you ever posted a question to TQC which got several replies, none of which answered the question? What did you ask?

Subway commercial

There is a Subway commercial on my TV for the new Roma Chicken Ciabatta sandwich ... it begins with a man and a woman walking down the sidewalk, and pausing in front of a store window.  They banter back and forth about how good this thing looks, and how 'it's hot" like it's a vibrator or lingerie or something.  They give each other this dorky look and say "let's get it!" or something like that -- and then they show you that they're looking at a poster at Subway for this sandwich.

Am I the only one who cringes at just HOW LAME this commercial is?
Does anyone want to go try this sandwich solely based on this commercial?

do you ever feel guilty for certain privileges that you have?

for example do you ever find yourself being overly nicer to cashier or worker that you know must have a hard time making ends meet? and do you ever find yourself being a bigger dick to someone you know is rich?

I don't let people in Mercedes Benz or beamers cut me off. I also don't let them get in front of me if they are waiting to get in some line or something. In fact i get a tiny kick by cutting them off. I don't know why. But when someone looks rich I assume that they are used to getting their ass kissed and getting their way so I like being annoying to them so I don't really like going out of my way to be nice to them, but when i see someone who might look a little down and out I find myself attempting to please them a bit more or at least trying to be a little nicer and more attentive.

Now, I recognize that a lot of this is based on my own token stereotypes and possibly classiest and racist undertones, but it's still something that I do and am obviously aware of.

I have a small problem. My friend asked me to make her a formal dress for a dance, which I did. She wore it to the dance, loved it, etc. BUT, I still haven't been paid for the dress yet (I know she intends to pay, it was part of the arrangement). I plan on asking her for the money soon because I'm quite broke and the materials were a bit of an investment for me. My question is, do you think I should charge her JUST for the cost of the materials? Or should I factor in some sort of labor charge, considering a substantial portion of it had to be sewn by hand? If you think I should be paid for labor, how much should I ask for? The fabric cost about $60 on its own, if that is a factor at all.

Has anyone here had any experience with Toni & Guy's basic academy in Dallas? (or if not Dallas, any of the other basic academies)

How was it?

Was it worth the 14,000 to you?

Was it easy to get a job afterwards?

Do you drink 8 glasses of water a day?

HOW DO YOU DO IT? Do you drink anything else? I can't ever manage to hit 8. I'm up to 5 so far today, and my water bottle is technically 3 "glasses" and it's full, but I feel like I'm forcing myself to drink it right now.

What's your favorite and least favorite beer?

1) I don't like most beer, but I can usually tolerate it...

2) Natty Ice.  It's what I like to call Douchebag Beer, or beer with a shot of piss. It should be ILLEGAL.

Laundry Room Etiquette

Last night I was doing laundry in my dorm, and since its a smaller dorm building, the laundry room isn't terribly big(7 washers, 7 dryers, 4 of these dryers are so small they are about worthless for a normal size load), and I was waiting for some stuff to get done in a dryer.  A person came up asking if the stuff sitting in one of the dryers, completely done, was mine(It wasn't), because every other dryer was occupied(even the little crappy ones, although some of those had stopped by then),and I told him he should go ahead and move it, it had been sitting there for a while.  Then we got to talking about how much it irritated us that people don't clear their stuff out right when its done.  I told the guy that I usually give the person 10 minutes to claim their stuff, after that I'm moving it, and he was like "Screw that.  If its done, its going out."  So I thought I'd see what you all think-
1)How long do you think is a reasonable amount of time to wait for someone to come claim their laundry from a stopped washer or dryer before you take their stuff out and put your stuff in?
2)Have you ever had anyone get pissed off at you for moving their stuff because they took forever to come back and take it out?
3)Do you think it is rude when people don't come get their laundry out of a washer/dryer on time?

Ummm..Bikini area shaving...

Hey - I got a question - SURPRISE!!

So, how does one shave their bikini area (frequently) with out getting razor burn/other uglies. How would one maintain a close shave by shaving every day AND avoid irritation. Would it be better just to wax? And what about when the hair grows back in and you are waiting for it to get long enough to wax again?? How irritating...

1)I was spurred to this question by a guy on the train, but I've been wondering this for ages now really. And I just HAVE to know, why do some black guys walk around with the pick sticking in their hair? Were they in the middle of grooming and something came up and they forgot about it?Whatever. And also I apologize for the repetitiousness of this question.
2)What hair products do you like to use? You can do some product placement if you want but you will not be paid for it.
3)Has foreign child adoption become a celebrity fad yet?

What is one 'The Word' theme you have always wanted to see, but it hasn't been done yet?

I have to write a five minute 'ghost writing' speech and I chose Colbert as my voice. I am planning on doing "The Word" as my speech, but the list I came up with is quite lacking.
