Lots of tattoo questions...

Do you have a tattoo? What is it of? Do you have any pictures you can share?

How did you decide on its placement? (Or their respective placements, whichever the case may be?)

Do tattoos around the hip/stomach area stretch in odd ways during pregnancy? If so, do they go back to normal, or is it always a bit warped?

Any regrets?

Cat-Calls

Boys, why do you holler rude comments and obscenities after people? Does this ever work for you? Really, I'd like to know, what's the success rate? How many of those girls that you degrade turn around and fuck you? Do cat-calls ever actually get you laid? If not, has it ever occured to you to attempt a different approach? Have you ever gotten some sort of positive response? Do the glares, cold shoulders, middle fingers, curses, and, God, I hope slaps, that you get in response peak your enjoyment? Please, enlighten me.

What's more awkward: Walking down the street with your mom and getting cat-called at, or your mom walking down the street with you and getting cat-called at?

No showers, so how do I keep clean and fresh?

I have a couple related hygiene questions.

I work on a boat, sailing off the east coast, and take groups of kids out for 7-10 day trips. (Yay non-profits!)I don't get paid much, but luckily room and board is included, so I do okay financially.

However, on these trips we have no showers or way of bathing. I have a small sink I can use, but limited water.

My hair is about shoulder length, and tends to be oily, but I also get a bad case of dandruff when I do ot wash it often.

Any tips on keeping my scalp dandruff-free, as well as keeping myself clean and such? And the cheaper and simpler, the better.

Diagnose me TQCers!

1. Why have all these random cysts been popping up on my scalp? I have a fairly large one near my hair line, which has been there for years, but suddenly I have these painful ones- and they are not zits.

Non-serious answers are more than welcome!

2. I'm pissy and hormonal tonight, should I watch either Chocolat or Closer?

COLLEGE

I did my FAFSA last year and my EFC (expected family income) was $0. I do it tonight, and my EFC is now $6,888. WTF?! I had a slightly higher paying job, but come on. I'm not that much richer.

1. Is this some evil Republican scheme, TQC?
2. Does this mean I'll have to get loans for all of my college now?

Also, yay! I got accepted to college today! I'm starting freshman year at the age of 23.

3. Did any of you folks start college a little later?
4. Did you smoke all the younger kids and piss them off?

There's a night club I really love going to. I lost my partner I went with every week and haven't been to the club in 8 week now. I can't convince any of my current friends to go with me. I just want one night a week to listen to some kick-ass music and dance.

Should I just suck up my insecurities and go alone? Would it be any fun by myself not knowing anyone there?

Life

The screen. It moves. It melts. Why?

I'm confused by people who are nasty to others for no reason. Are you?

Who else had a boring, lonely Friday night, complete with watching MST3k and The Office alone in your room? I'm about to pull out my teeth just to amuse myself for a short period of time. It's times like these that make me mad at my boyfriend for being in the Air force. : (

I need to be entertained. Anyone want to entertain me? I took Ambien a couple of minutes ago so I might be a bit loopy.

I know I posted just a few hours ago, but this is of great importance (::cough::).

Do grocery stores in New York City commonly check IDs on purchases of wine and beer? Convenience stores almost never do and bars frequently either don't card or are lenient with fakes.

I was wondering, my fellow TQCers, if you could help me out

i'm looking for somethings i can do at home to build up my upper body in particular and lose my mini gut.
trouble is i get bored really easy. I have access to a gym, both in my condo and outside. Lifting makes me bored, but i used to do it. same to treadmill running. Any ideas?

also, Any recommendations on a good Kickboxing DVD? more than one is best, again ADD bored easy.

on an unrelated note. Has anyone found a good way to reset one's sleep cycle?
I've gotten into this sticky patch where no matter how much/ little sleep i get i tend to stay up till 2, and/ or sleep unit 11. Even if i manage to wake up earlier i can't get to sleep. I've tried Mellatonin(sp) and i take a sleep aid every night, no matter when i take it, i'm up late it seems.

on a related note, any one have good tricks for getting up in the morning?
i have this nasty habit of hitting the snooze button.

I love gardening and yardwork and all kinds of other being outside types of things. But I'm more afraid of bees than I am of heights, dying, and public speaking combined, and while I try not to let that hold me back, I'm generally constantly on guard when bees are around.

So my question: does anyone know of successful ways to repel bees? Do insect repellent sprays seem to work against bees as well? Are citronella candles effective? I'd like to come up with some kind of personal repellent, like a spray or something, and I would like to come up with something to keep them out of my yard. Any info that anyone has on bee keep-awaying would be appreciated.

1) Why do you think people claim it's okay to use racial slurs because one of their good friends is [whatever race here]?

2) If I offered you 10,000 dollars to run through Wal*Mart naked, would you?

3) I asked a friend why she thought so many people questioned my sexuality (a lot of people think I'm gay). She told me I 'look like a lesbian' and 'fit the stereotype' (which is news to me because I thought I knew what the lesbian stereotype was and I don't fit into that). If someone said this to you would you feel offended? (If you're gay then make it 'look like a straight person' or if you're bi then some other orientation you don't identify with)

4) Are you angry about anything right now? If so, what?

5) What's the last dream you had that you remember?

So I really don't have any friends besides my boyfriend. And he's getting really sick of me being around him all the time. He has just the opposite problem- he has dozens of friends he could hang out with. So spending all his time with me isn't his ideal. I just get lonely very quickly. I'm extremely shy and don't know how to start a conversation with anyone besides him. If someone else starts one with me, I get nervous and unintentionally kill the conversation because of that.

I didn't used to be this bad. Just a bunch of bad people in high school caused me to become a complete introvert. I'm in a college right now where I know NO ONE at all. I don't know how to get to know anyone- my classes are generally very quiet, and everyone piles out the second it ends.


This is really pulling me apart, and hurting my relationship with my boyfriend. Does anyone have any advice? Anyone here been in my shoes and have some hopeful story to share? :-\

Birthday Plans.

What would you do?

Friend A's birthday is falling on a perfect Friday in April. Friend A is doing a lot for you right now and is caught up planning a party for you. You get close friends and her parents together to do a surprise birthday dinner at a nice restaurant on the night of her birthday - she is easy to surprise. All are able to attend except Friend B.

Friend B works a lot and is also helping Friend A plan the previously mentioned party for you. Upon calling to ask if she can schedule this Friday late in April, Friend B explains that she really only makes good money at work on Friday nights, is it possible to do it on Saturday?

You've already put in calls/emails to everyone requesting that Friday night and it is exactly the night of her birthday, so it's quite perfect - not to mention birthday girl has off on Saturday and works on Sunday. You have not touched base with anyone yet except friend B who wants to chnage  the surprise to fit her work schedule a bit better.

What do you think? Change it? Keep it? What variables help you make up your mind?

Nintendo DS

Hey everyone!

My husband's birthday is coming up in two months. I'm sick of him stealing my DS, so I am going to buy him one of his own.

Which color should I get him? Silver or Pink?

I don't want to get him a black one because that's what I have.

I know he can take a joke, so that's why I was leaning towards pink, but I don't know. I figured I'd let you guys decide.

Games:

Here's a list of advance and DS games I have, what other game should I get him?

Animal Crossing, Cooking Mama, Final Fantasy 1-6, The Sims 2, The: The Urbz, The Sims: Bustin Out, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, Bomberman, Tetris Worlds, Super Mario Advance, Lunar Legend, Yoshi Island, Super Mario 3, Dr. Mario/Puzzle League, Dragon Quest: Rocket Slime, Children of Mana, Lost Magic, and Lunar: Dragon Song.

I'm indecisive, so the most recommended game wins.

Is this true?

A friend of mine recently admitted to having been bulimic in the past. I was talking about this to mututal friend and she told me she had already known for a long time. She says she knew because the girl's throat sags a bit and that people who are bulimic get saggy throats because their throat muscles get used to being in the position of throwing up.

Is this total bullshit? It sounds like it is to me. By that logic people who frown a lot would get stuck with a permanent frown on their face.

all you need is

because of the last question posted

lets say you find a wallet on the ground containing cash,  a social security card, credit cards, and driver's license. which would you do?

1) take the money, leave the rest where you found it
2) drop the wallet in the mailbox and trust that the post office will send it to the person
3) look at the address and if its close take the wallet back to the person untouched
4) steal the persons identity
5) leave it alone

do you think that it would be wrong to choose choice 1 because its wrong, or because you wouldnt want someone to do the same to you? if you got your wallet back but the cash was gone, how pissed would you be?

Benefits

Have you ever been on any kind of public assistance, benefits (including unemployment), welfare?

Did you feel in any way ashamed for it? Did other people try to make you feel bad for it? Do you think it's something people should feel bad about, or does your culture generally think people should feel bad about it? Where are you from?

My answer: I've been on three kinds at different points in my life - job seeker's allowance, income support for disability, and housing benefit. Don't feel remotely bad about it in any way. I think it's more socially acceptable in my culture (UK) to be on benefits than it is in the US, perhaps because councils have a responsibility here to make sure people are housed so getting low-rent council housing is perfectly normal, and many people could never afford to pay private rental rates. People do give people shit about being on some kinds of benefits, though, particularly people with mental health problems. Hasn't been a problem for me but I have a friend who is constantly getting shit about not having a job, because she has a good degree, when she has severe PTSD.

my mother is crazy need help!!!

My sister and I are roommates living in the same city as my parents. We've only lived together, out of the house, for about 6 weeks.

My mother (who is usually a little crazy)is extremely insulted that we haven't invited her and my dad over to have dinner or watch a movie (on our 13 inch TV). She's been to the apartment to help us move in and when we rented it...it's only a mile from their place. Our parents still live in the large house that we grew up in, and we usually have dinner there once a week (and do our laundry).

Our apartment is a small 2 bedroom with an L-shaped common area with a couch and chair, small table with 2 chairs, and a desk.

I guess that my question is how have others dealt with living in the same city as their parents? What were the expectations for reciprocal hospitality? Should my mother be insulted? or is this part of her general craziness?

Thanks! (grrrr)

I received paperwork on a billing amendment for my credit card but I have no idea what it means. I have the option of rejecting the amendment so I want to be sure to do so if that is the correct course of action.

This is the part I don't understand:

MINIMUM FINANCE CHARGE
If the total of the Periodic Rate Finance Charges for all balance categories is less that $1.50, then a minimum FINANCE CHARGE of $1.50 will be assessed on the account in lieu of any Periodic Rate Finance Charge.


As far I know my account didn't have a Periodic Rate Finance Charge previously, so what does this all mean??

A question for Christians

I have a question for the Christians in this group.  I assume (rightly or wrongly) that the people reading this community are fairly well educated.

Without looking it up, how many of you (Christians) know the criteria for determining when Easter is going to be?

How many of you non-Christians know this?

I would think that Christians would know how to determine the date of their most sacred holiday, but sadly, I have yet to meet one that does.

I am an atheist, and I know how to determine when Easter is, besides looking at a calendar.  It is the only holiday that you guys have left with any ties to the natural world.


Edit to add: Whee, this is fun :) and thanks for those of you that do know, for not spilling the beans on it.

Edit to the edit:  So, does this make up for my boring drunken post last night?

For those of you who are webcomic readers, what is a comic that you would recommend?

Also, how do you contain a dog once it's figured out how to climb over gates and tables? We try to keep the puppy in the kitchen, at least until she's fully house trained, but she always escapes.She's a big puppy, though, if we put up gates she can't climb over she throws herself against them and knocks them over. Any suggestions?

Somebody help me.

So there's this song playing while they're skating in Blades of Glory, near the end, it's a pretty popular song I'd say (not right now, but in general) and I may or may not have the word "crush" right:

"crush! ah ahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!" It also mentions "universe" in it.

I love that song and I want to know the name. Thanks a bunch.

Solved, it's Flash Gordon by Queen.

Minors on forums

I moderate a large forum based on a very well known television show that contains mature content. Much to my dismay, there is a nine year old on the forum. If I were the forum's admin instead of being a lowly moderator, I would ban this child because in my experience with forums, things just get ugly when minors go into forums that do contain mature content.

What are your opinions on minors (anyone under 13) on forums/communities that contain mature content?

My aunt just got a new computer with a DVD burner. As I was messing around with it today, I realized there is no way to burn DVD movies without paying for additional software (it will burn audio and data CDs and data DVDs, but no movie DVDs). I could talk a lot about how stupid this is, but I will get to the point and ask if anyone has any recommendations for free DVD-burning software?

Also, I burned some files on a DVD, which absolutely will not be recognized by my computer. Hers is Windows, mine is a Mac. Would this have anything to do with why it won’t work? It seems like it shouldn’t matter. It has never mattered with CDs, and I know my computer plays recorded DVDs.

Do you have anyone on your friends list who drives you absolutely insane, and yet you don’t remove them?
I do, I think it is because it is like watching a train wreck. I cringe at how lame this person is and get embarrassed for them, but I can’t look away.
