I gave up soda and now I have trouble falling asleep. Is this some sort of bizarre caffeine-withdrawal side effect? I had a coke today, and I'm tired now.

If you've ever given up coke and you were a very big coke drinker, what did you replace coke with in your diet?

My throat is sore. What horrible malady am I coming down with?

Our local commercials have recently featured a fuzzy "snow" screen with someone saying "beware the 26" over and over again for 30 seconds. There is this website and that is all the information I have. What do you think the 26 is and why are we afraid?

Random fashion advice

So, I need to update my clothes for this spring/summer.  I'll admit, I have very little fashion sense.

I'm about a size 15-16 with a wider "middle" section.  (area around my belly button. I don't have a "flap over" or anything, haha.  I just wider set there, runs in the family.)  I also have a horribly wide ribcage for no reason, and am larger chested.  (38D bra).  I'm 5'8, and don't really like to show off too much leg skin.  But, I also do not like looking like a teacher, if you know what I mean.

So, TQC.  What SHOULD I buy? What styles would look good on me?


pleaze to be not telling me to lose weight or "go home, fatty" or the like, lol.  I'm happy with my size atm, and do actually have an active lifestyle.  I'm just of a "bigger" set. danke!

Doritos

1. Have you ever tried Ranchero flavor Doritos?

2. What did you think of them?

3. What city and state did you buy them in?



I tried them in Los Angeles a few weeks ago, and I liked them a lot--sort of a bitter spicy taste, like enchilada sauce or a mild mole. But apparently they don't sell them here in San Francisco yet.

1) Does your sense of humour ever offend people? If so, can you give an example?

2) Is there a word for people who are not interested in having sex with anyone but themselves? What is it?

3) Is there a word for people who fear mushrooms? What is it?

4) Does it seem like there's an improbable amount of people on the internet who have Asperger's these days?

5) Have you seen the original Rambo movie?

6) Is there any type of person that tends to annoy you? What type?

7) When someone asks a question, do you assume that it somehow pertains to them personally?

Big eyed girls...

G'day question club!

For awhile I've been fascinated by kitschy vintage prints/paintings of super-cute, big eyed girls such as this:

I think this sort of print was big around about the 60s? Am I wrong? I'm wondering if there are any books or websites that I can visit to find out more about this sort of art? I've been doing a bit of googling but am having trouble coming up with keywords that get me anywhere. I'd really like to know more about this sort of print, were they very popular? When? Why?

Any knowledge you can to share would be much appreciated!

Call me naive, but...

I've been watching The Girl's Next Door (on E!) lately, and I do not understand them. I can't wrap my head around the premise. Do all the girls really sleep with Hef? Do they sleep with eachother? (I'm thinking they probably don't sleep with eachother, but what do I know). How do they not get jealous of eachother and break out into cat fights? Are they really in love with him? How long do they live there, how do they get there? I am just lost. This is like a parallel universe to me.

Please excuse my naivety. :D

1. Ever taken prescribed decongestants for a sinus infection / cold, etc?

2. If so, did you do/think anything really odd?

3. What things?


Here's my answers.

1. Yes, many times. Currently I'm on them and, a sedative, so, that makes the effects of it worse.

2. Yep.

3. Yesterday, I honestly couldn't figure out if my head was sitting on my neck right. I had to ask my Grandpa to feel of it and make sure it was. ^^; Normally I'd realize "it's a bit swollen, and the muscles are tight" but no, instead, I just kept thinking my head wasn't sitting right. D:

The other screwed up thing, I'm currently doing, which is posting here. I'm sure I'll know later if it was a messed up idea or not. XD

Who here suffers migraines?  How bad do they get?

When did you start having them?  What brings them on, what symptoms do you have, and what's your drug of choice?  Did you ever have trouble getting a doctor to believe that you have them?  Do you have auras?

I ask because last night I was slurring my speech (after having no fun at all), couldn't feel my hands, and judging from over 20 years of the damn things it was about to start random pain spikes that would make me black out for a second or two.  My drugs of choice now are Zomig (when I can get to it in time) and Imitrex (when my head has already exploded).

1. By your standards, when do you consider somebody fat? Not plump, not chubby. Fat.

2. What I really want to do right now is to : Shave all of my hair away and go to school like it's fine tomorrow. But I'm too much of a chicken to do it. A more important reason I'm not going to do it is because I don't have enough features to rock it. You know, the whole piercing eyes, definite/beautiful bone structure thing.

Ok, now tell me something random please!

1. Is there any website that shows how much money is worth in other countries? For example, you hear how employees in China make the equivelant of $2/day. I want to find out how far $2/day goes in China and other countries. I have been Googling this but seeing as I'm having problems trying to even explain what I'm looking for, I'm not coming up with much!
EDIT: Okay, let me try this again. I do NOT want a currency converter. I do not care about the exact conversion rate (e.g. 87 indian rupees equals 2usd), but I want to know more specifically how that would translate based on the cost of living. To use the U.S as an example: a salary of $30,000 in San Francisco would not be very good and you'd probably have a tough time making ends meet. But somewhere in Kentucky, that would maybe be comparable to (and this is just a random guess) $50,000 in Southern California. I want to know THAT type of information because knowing an exact conversion rate is irrelevent in this context.

2. Do you volunteer or donate? Where/what organization?

3. Do you prefer soda from a can or a bottle? Do you notice a difference in taste?

4. What do people like about cruises? I know lots of people love them but I can't imagine myself enjoying because on a ship for that long and not having a whole lot of time to explore and experience each place. I'd rather spend a week getting to know one place than a day or less seeing a few.

5. Have you experienced culture shock? Where were you?

I'm trying to get as much feedback as I can. if you have some proof reading things, let me know...I know some people on TQC enjoy history, so I thought some people might actually enjoy reading it.

Have you ever gone to a strip club?

What was the place like?

Did you enjoy yourself?

What area was the club in?

I told my boyfriend I'd like to go to a strip club to celebrate my 21st birthday (in a couple of years still), and he said we should go together and buy each other dances and all that. It sounded like fun to me, but when I mentioned it to a friend she was shocked that I would let a stripper dance for my boyfriend. So now I'm wondering, if your SO (if you don't have one, just pretend for a sec) went to a strip club, would you be angry with them? Would you go with them? Would you buy them a dance?

cars!

I don't really know very much about cars, so I have two questions.

1)I just bought a used car and the inspection isn't out yet, but when I registered it in my name, they gave me a 10 day temporary one. Can I just use the old one or do I have to go get it re-inspected?

2)The battery is dead in my car (long story) so my friend is going to come over and jump it. Would she start her car before or after we put all of the clips on the batteries? How long should I let it charge before I start my car? (Its an 88 Caddy)

Thanks!

Since I can't figure out why the stupid poll thingie wont work (submit button stays gray), I will just ask:

a) having someone tell you that they will pray for you in a condescending tone?
b) having someone tell you that you aren't even worth praying for?

They're recasting the Star Wars Trilogy!!

. . . but not really.

Say, you were going to remake the original trilogy, with actors from today. You want people that are talented.

Yes, you can get a new screenwriter for Jedi, because the dialogue. . it really could be better.

Who would you cast as the main leads?

1) what do you think of fraternities and sororities?

2) why do you think that?

3) do you ever feel jealous of any people who belong to them? or would you secretly want to be in one?

My answer

1) I think frats are very lame unless they are somewhat academic. I only know one cool frat boy and he just joined this year. I only know one sorority girl who is nice, the rest are whack

2) because I am surrounded by frat and sorority girls and they annoy me

3) honestly sometimes I do because a lot of the sorority girls make it seem like they are having a lot of fun and are really close with their sisters, but my jealousy goes away after spending more than five minutes with them and learning about their stupid house rules, dues, and meetings.

Dear TQC,

I've been really curious about Absinthe for a while now, and now that I've found out that it's possible to buy it online and have it shipped to the US, I'm seriously considering it. But first, I have a few questions for those of you who have had it before...

1. What brand of Absinthe was it?
2. What did it taste like? How about compared to what it was "supposed" to taste like?
3. Did you enjoy it?
4. Overall, what was the experience like? Did you hallucinate?
5. Where did you get it?

6. For those of you who ordered it online to be shipped to the US, what site did you order it from?
7. Did you need to prove your age in any way, or was the credit card information enough?

(no subject)

In the UK is it possible to get a bank account that you can't touch 'til a certain age? I'm sixteen currently and want to save around £3500. I'd like to be able to get the money out towards the end of 2009... is this possible? Details please.

"Friends" & contact lenses

Two separate questions:

1) In "Friends", Season 7 Episode 8 (The One Where Chandler Hates Dogs) Phoebe brings home that shaggy dog Clunkers to Monica's and Chandler's. What kind of dog is Clunkers?

2) Contact lenses: For the 2 week contact lenses, is it 2 weeks since you opened the new lenses or 2 weeks that you actually wear them? Because I opened a new pair 2 weeks ago but barely wore them because I was at home or used my glasses, so does the "2 weeks" rule get extended? Or should I still throw them out to be safe?

1. It's Sunday!

That means it's the series finale of Rome on HBO this evening.

Boo. :( Gonna miss it.

Even so, who do you think is going to die during the course of this evenings show do you think?

2. Have any of you ever burned a newer cd into your computer,and then tried to burn it again? For instance the new broadway cast recording of Sweeney Todd that I have refuses to burn onto my computer since it died and had to be reformatted and al that. This is one of many cd's that the original recording will NOT burn onto my computer. Anyone have any ideas on what to do besides limewire the music I want?

3. Anyone have American Gothic on DVD. Is your disc two, last two episodes on each side completely screwed? Thaaaanks. ;)

I'll probably take my boyfriend with me because he's significantly braver than I am. But I'm just curious, for those of you who have done this kind of thing - are you afraid of the dark? Any experiences would be awesome. I'm really scared but I find this stuff utterly fascinating too, so I'm willing to brave it.

Well according to my small research on my previous Poll 1 the kind of media picture is made up of does make a major difference in how people percieve beauty.

(NOTE: Girl A & B in the previous post#1 is actually Left=Girl B and Right =Girl A in the original research; they are reversed in this picture...meaning A is on the Right and B is on the left)

College questions

1.) There are a lot of people who got around 4.0 GPAs that decided to go to a state university instead of top colleges. I'm sure they could have made it, but I'm wondering why people choose not to go to top schools when they could have easily made it (besides financial issues)?

2.) Someone told me that it's more difficult to get a good grade in an Ivy league school because it's so competitive. What about someone who was lazy in high school and went to a community college and recieved a 4.0 at the community college....do you think they could take it at an Ivy league school? They didn't pay that much attention in high school, so they could have missed out on some general knowledge, like grammar stuff.

asking people out

why do women not ask men out very often?

i've talked to most of my female friends about it. one in particular sticks out as having said that she has thought about it, but always gets too afraid and chickens out. do women not realize that it is horribly scary for guys to put ourselves on the line, put ourselves out there to ask them out? it is one of the most terrifying things in daily life, gender doesn't matter!

i just do not get the one-way street that this tends to take. honestly, it's quite annoying. a word of advice to the ladies-guys like it when you take the initiative! ask HIM out, don't play games and try to "get" him to ask you out! every guy i've ever talked to about the subject has said he wished women would ask him out, not just the other way around.

So, Question Clubbers, have any of you converted to a different religion? How did the process go? Why'd you do it? How'd your family react? Further elaboration would be super.

I'm from a Christian family, looking to convert to Judaism. I don't know how the process will go, aside from the learning under a rabbi part and the mikvah and all that jazz. I want religion back in my life, and Christ doesn't do it for me. Judaism just fits. My family won't be too happy when I tell them...They'll think I'm doing it for my boyfriend, which isn't true at all. He did open my eyes to Judaism, being the first Jew that I ever became good friends with, but I'm doing this for me.

So, TQC, if you were having computer troubles, and your computer just happened to be supplied by your school (still have to pay for it, but whatever, right?)... you would take it to tech services, correct? And if it was behaving properly, you wouldn't bother, RIGHT?

Lego question...

Anyone remember the name of that computer program that had like a camera so you could make your own stop-motion lego movies? I had a teacher in High School that was obsessed with Lego's and his fiance had gotten him one for his birthday or Christmas or something and now for reasons that shall remain unknown I may have a need for that program/camera if it's not too much money. So yea anyone remember the name or where I can get it? Oh and yes I looked on Amazon but there's a LOT of stuff so I'm wondering if anyone can help speed up my search.

2 Questions

1) I have an assignment to find a poem for my English class by an established author. Since this is a college course, my teacher wants us to find a controversial poem, none of that "Tupac bullshit" (his words). Can anyone point me in the direction of any?

2) If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?

Do you know of anywhere that i could get free sewing patterns preferably for a simple shirt and perhaps a skirt? (they don't have to match)

I'm wanting to learn to sew, so i want something easy. I've been looking all over the net but cant find the right type of thing or I'd have to order the book or whatever and all the patterns at material shops are all those lacy things.

Do you sew? Can I see some of your creations?

Aside from the obvious (Red bull), what is your favorite thing to mix Jagermeister with?

I enjoy Jager and Cherry Coke. I also enjoy This drink.

Oh, also, have you ever heard the Jagermeister song? (I wanna thank you, thank you, thank you Jagermeister!) They used to play it on Radio 104 (R.I.P.) when I was younger, but since I was naive at that time I thought it was some type of beer and didn't know how to spell it. LOL. I should find that shit on Limewire and download it.

If someone has a family history of bleeding during pregnancy (almost like getting their period, but still being pregnant) , what else could they use as an indicator for whether or not they're pregnant?

Is sherbet good for you or just not as bad for you?

Did you watch the world's ugliest dog competition on animal planet? Did you think that most of the dogs were ugly, or did you find them adorable?

I know I just asked a question like half an hour ago...

But say you're making a strict diet for yourself.  However you can allow yourselves 2 exceptions to all the rules.  What would they be?

EDIT: I remember a long time ago someone told me about this one diet where for 13 days, you follow the strict rules very carefully, you eat exactly as the diet says, exercise, but on the 14th day, you can eat anything you want, and as much as you want.  Anyone else think that's a little weird?

Why is it difficult to understand that not EVERYTHING is on the internet?
Sure there is a ton of great info, but there is also a lot of wrong and omitted info.

Does researching something online, for a mere 15 minutes, that you've had no prior experience with or knowledge of automatically make you an expert?
I love it when people try to argue with me and tell me I'm wrong when I've been dealing with
something for 5 years as opposed to the few minutes they've spent "researching" it. It makes
for a good laugh.

Hey drug experts!

I just threw back a couple Vicodin (which were prescribed to me, don't worry), and all of a sudden I can't feel my hands and feet. I've been taking them for over two months now, and I've never lost feeling like this before. They've felt like they were asleep before, but never no feeling at all.

Is that normal at all?

Do you/would you send your children to Private school?
What are your views on private education?


No, I wouldn't. The state school system only fails because the middle/upper class send their children privately. People expected me to go privately but my parents knew i'd do just fine anywhere because of the values they've installed in me.
It seems unfair that the richest of society get the best education, carrying on the cycle. If everyone went to state school things would work so much better.
