OMG, help. I'm trying to think of a comedy skit I saw so I can look it up on Youtube. Not much success so far. It's either SNL or Mad TV, and it's about a couple who's gone into debt. There are two people selling some sort of credit-revival program and there sales pitch is teaching you how to buy absolutely nothing. Any direction?

3) are you happy with what has happened in your life so far?

my dog has what look like a ton of ingrown hairs on her elbows.  each elbow has a patch of just exposed skin, thats swollen, and when squeezed sometimes a bunch of hairs shoot out like a zit, other times just black pus.  she has had these for about two years.  when the vet checked them out he said it was nothing to worry about.  well... tonight i gently squeezed one of them, and she yelped very loudly.  after that she wouldn't let me get anywhere near her elbows to take a better look.  i didnt squeeze hard enough to hurt her.  has anyone ever noticed this in their dog?  should i take her to the vet?  maybe she needs antibiotics?  i tried google, but couldn't figure out the right way to search for this.. suggestions?

i'm sort of worried about my pup!

1. What is your opinion on college students and professors dating? *edit* To clarify, both parties are indeed unattached (my opinion would be different otherwise), and the student doesn't necessarily have to be taking a course by the professor.

I don't think there's anything wrong with it as long as it's not affecting their academic/professional relationship. Like, as long as the student doesn't get treated better or something. I've never really known anyone in this situation though.

2. Suppose that the date of your death is predetermined, and you can't do anything to change it. Now, if you could have as many wishes come true as you want, but for every wish, one year is taken off of your life span, would you still make any wishes? Mind you, you can't make wishes about your age or knowing when you die. Also, there's always the potential that your death could be in only a few years.

I think I would simply because I firmly believe that my death isn't for many, many years and I probably won't have an early death through an accident.

I have a difficult time winding down at night. I'll lay there and try to go to sleep, but I can't get settled. My mind will wander for at least an hour before I finally fall asleep. I'll go over things again and again and wonder what I'd do differently, or I'll think of something I need to do and then I'll go over that several times. Does this happen to anyone else? How can I get my mind to basically turn itself off so I can get some sleep?

i have a coach signature satchel bag (sort of like this one but a bit older) that i absolutely adore. problem is, as i was unzipping the bag, the zipper got caught on part of a pad wrapper and now it's stuck and no amount of pulling or tugging will dislodge it. what's the best way to go about getting this stupid little scrap of the wrapper out of the zipper while keeping my bag intact? i know coach can do repairs on their products and everything but if there's an easy way to do this, i'd love to know!

EDIT: lol as soon as i posted this, i fixed it! but feel free to post answers anyway haha.

According to a professor, I need a survey reference for a paper I'm writing. Therefore, I come to you with a small plea: Do my homework for me, please? Actually, in all honesty, it's just a few questions about graffiti.

1. Age?
2. Location?
3. What do you do for a living?
4. Do you typically like art?
5. Do you think that there is a difference between "graffiti" and "street art"?
6. Do you think it should be punishable by law? If so, how severely?
7. Would the permanence of the material used (chalk vs. spray paint) make a difference in whether or not it should be punishable by law?
8. Is there any problem with graffiti where you live, do you mind it, and do you think it makes a difference where you live (suburbs/urban/rural area)?
9. Do you think that there is a valid point or artistic credibility behind tagging? (An example can be seen in the second link for street art in the 5th question, left hand side, green spray paint. Also in the link under graffiti, for more in depth tagging.)
10. Do you think that putting graffiti or street art in a museum for display would ruin its purpose?

11. Any final thoughts or things you want to clear up? I do realize that sometimes, poll/survey questions can be a bit misleading, especially when the person writing up the questions already has an opinion.

What defines morals.. are they universally created, or culturally created? For example, bestiality is wrong in general view.. but not polygamy.

So what do you all think? The question is vague, but it's not like anyone can have a wrong answer.

3- Cheapest thing you're wearing right now? (If you're naked, uhh... I guess you win. o_O)

If your child were in fourth grade, and the teacher found out that she/he were talking about seeing two girls in fifth grade doing 'bisexual things', would you want to know about it? What about if your child were daring other boys and girls to kiss each other? What if your child were the one being dared?

I'm a TA in a fourth grade classroom, and these are all things that had been going on. The teacher scolds the kids, but to the best of my knowledge, hasn't informed the parents. If it were me I'd want to know, but I just wanted to get some perspective before I brought it up to the teacher.

What would you do?

Back story ... I was attempting to set up an appointment with a new therapist. The new therapist has a very thick accent to the point where every sentence she spoke was followed by a "I'm sorry. I didn't understand what you said." on my end. Her grasp of the English language was also very tentative as I had to pause often to try and think of a new word because she did not understand the meaning of a word I had used. Considering this is a therapist and being able to communicate with each other is vital, I didn't think this was going to work out and finally just thanked her for her time and hung up without an appointment. When I told a friend what had happened, she informed me that I was a racist if I didn't make an appointment with a woman I could neither understand nor could she understand me.

So my question to you TCQ, is ... should I make an appointment with this woman and give it a try? Or find someone else? If it was you, what would you do? Am I racist for being hesitant to even see how it goes with this therapist?

Doesn't driving anger you sometimes???

What are your 3 biggest pet peeves when it comes to shitty drivers?


1. People who slam on their brakes randomly for no reason.

2. People who seem incapable of staying in their fucking lane.

3. People who feel the need to drive directly behind you... with their BRIGHTS ON.

I'm assuming that the majority of you will say slow drivers.  But the truth is, a lot of the time you can go around slow drivers.  However, if someone in front front of you is constantly breaking and switching from lane to lane, there's not much that you can do.  Nor is there anything you can do about the idiot behind you using their high beams.

I want to add this one as a sidenote.  It didn't make my top 3, but it's still worth mentioning:
People who park their asses in the passing lane and go exactly the speed limit or slower.  If you are on a highway and the people to the right of you are going faster than you are... YOU'RE IN THE WRONG FUCKING LANE, IDIOT.  MOVE OVER.  YOU'RE HOLDING UP TRAFFIC AND LIKELY TO CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. 
Note: in defensive driving class, the instructors actually tell you that it's more dangerous to go slower than the flow of traffic than to go faster.  Think about that for a moment.

So, as soon as possible I plan on getting a nice camera. Right now I have a cheapo Nikon , but last summer at the beach I was so paranoid about it. What do you do with a camera at the beach when you aren't using it? I'd be afraid to step away from my towel. I was thinking that I could just get my picture taking out of the way right away and then lock the camera safe in the trunk of my car, but I'd really rather be able to take pics the entire time if anyone has a better suggestion.

For people who wear glasses, how on earth do you swim without them? Contacts and goggles creep me out and are out of the question. I'm pretty flippin blind and have to keep my eyes on a couple babies (and my camera back there on the beach towel, lol) so I need to be able to see. I always just keep my glasses on and look like an idiot. I don't dive or anything, so I don't think it matters all that much.

Then, she is back in the cave again on the cave floor.  Do we have to wait for "The Ascent II -The Puss Heads Revenge"  to find out for sure?

Say you're looking for a new apartment with a roommate, someone you'd have a separate room from (so not a boyfriend/girlfriend).

Would you dislike the apartment if there was a *huge* difference in the sizes of the two bedrooms?

For reference, one bedroom is large enough to fit a queen sized bed and at least 4 dressers, plus has a huge walk-in closet running the length of the shorter wall (about 9 feet long). The other bedroom has enough room to fit a queen sized bed and that's about it, and it's closet is less than 2 feet square.

If you took an apartment like this, how would you decide who gets the nice bedroom and who gets the smaller one? Would the person in the larger bedroom have to pay a larger share of the rent?

ok so. some guy who goes to the same university as me found my myspace, and made the assumption that my myspace name was the same as my email (which it own fault..) anyhow and added me. Prior to this i had never spoken to him or so much as looked his way purposely. He had a class in the same room before mine and i guess noticed me. Anyhow so he added me..and it was odd. so i talked to him a couple times but they were pretty vague conversations. Now he saw me one day at school since then but didnt come up to me... but i figure he will eventually since he kept asking me to "hang out".

oh also. im fairly positive he looking for some sort of relationship(sexual or not..) and im not at all into it(even as far as friendship goes)

so the the question is
when he comes up to me at the university how do i kindly convey the message that id prefer if he didnt come talk to me at all?

yes. i know this makes me sound really awful. but i dont care.

So I'm thinking of getting a tattoo...

I went with a friend to watch her get a tattoo today in celebration of her 18th birthday. The artist, Curtis, knows me by face and asked when I was going to get one of my own. He said if I decided to, he'd love to do it because my skin is so pale and soft.

So I've got a great tattoo artist wanting to, I've seen him create a tattoo (and his technique is both gentle and clean/sterile beyond my biggest expectations). So is there anything else I should ask/look for/do before going through with it?

Anyone here ever had a breast reduction? How old were you when you got it? What size were you before and after?

Were you happy with the results? What was the best and worst things about the entire process? If you have kids, did it affect breastfeeding at all?

Did you pay for it yourself, or did medicare cover it (I'm in Canada)?

Overall, would you do it over again if you had to?

I'm seriously considering getting it done, going down to a full D-DD from a G. I'm only 18 though, and considering waiting to get it done after I have kids and the girls all inflated. If I get on the medicare waiting list now and get approved, it'll take me about 3-5 years before I can get it done.

Morality question

There are 3 patients in a hospital who are waiting for organ donations. Without new organs, they will all die within the next 5 days. A backpacking drifter goes into the hospital, and the doctor who examines him finds that this man is a perfect match for all 3 of the dying patients. The organs that the patients need are vital to one's survival, so the backpacker would not be able to just donate and walk away. The backpacker has no family/friends, so he would not be missed if he is sacraficed in order to save 3 other people.

If you were the doctor, would you tell the backpacker that he can be a hero for 3 strangers? Would you just let the backpacker go, knowing that those 3 people will die soon?

1. What is the largest amount of money you have ever spent in a convenience store?
Probably no more than $15.

2. I plan on making vegetarian marshmallows tomorrow. I need to buy agar agar. Could I get this at a regular grocery store? What would it be near? I'm assuming it would be in the baking aisle, but that isn't very specific.

Okay .. I know this is a really annoying question, but I know it was posted here before and the LJ seek isn't helping at all ..

Does anyone know where to find that essay about koalas? With the hilariously bad grammar and swearing?

I want to show my friend, but I can't find it anywhere .. thanks!

Got it, thanks! I'm an idiot.

Most of us have said "I'll never use this in the real world" while learning something at some point in our lives... usually in school but at other times as well.

Is there anything you said this to that you DID end up using?

I use the left/right/stop hand signals while at work, because every now and then I have to drive a GEM vehicle on a 30MPH street with a decent amount of traffic. I use my "I'm making a left lane change" hand signal when I have to get over to make a left at a light. I never thought I'd ever, ever, ever use them.. the only reason I know what they are is because they're on the DMV driving test.

Do you tend to make snap judgements based on someone's user icon?

If so, what are some that you've made that you found were completely wrong?

For my TV Studio production class, I'm doing a show called "I Love One Hit Wonders" kind of like the shows on VH1 ("I Love the 80s", "I Love the 90s", etc.) So now I'm trying to determine what songs to use in the show.

So, TQC, if you were doing a show about One Hit Wonders from the 90s, what songs would you consider a must have?

I loved SNL in the 90's (even though many people say it was even better before then, but that's before my time...)

What were your favorite 90s SNL skits?

My favorites:

-Chris Kattan when he was Mango.
-and Chris Kattan's "The, How Do You Say? Ah, Yes, SHOW."
-When Will Ferrel was in Blue Oyster Cult and Christopher Walken all "I GOTTA have more Cowbell baby!" 
-Chris Farley's sketches (especially the Zagat Survey and the Chris Farley show)
-Whenever Will Ferrel and Ana Gasteyer played the family always fighting over dinner
-Will Ferrel imitating James Lipton or Harry Carey
-Superstar sketches...

haha.. the list goes on.

Morbid Feelings

I don't know if anyone's posted this yet but

What would the end of the world be like?
What would the last person on Earth be thinking?
Do you think that there would be attempts to start life some where else in the universe? If yes, would the attempts be successful? 
Once there is no more life on Earth, would life be starting all over again on some other planet therefore making Earth a just another object of the past?
Most importantly, is God going to save us?

I think the last question is my favorite. I want to know what other people think about religion's role in the death of the Earth and the human race. Personally, I don't think God will have anything to do with this but that's just me.

Let the Games Begin

So, because I am playing on Neopets instead of homework and have now come to TQC to procrastinate...

1. Do you play Neopets? Go-pets? Any other online virtua-pet games?
2. Do you play MMORPGs? Or other games online?
3. What are these other games called/what type of game are they? (Not general casino/card/variety game sites)
4. Do you procrastinate a lot?
5. Do you play any type of games at all? Consoles or computer?

EDIT: Forgot my answers
