what about you?
For those of you born in 1987 or 88 did you grow up getting lost in "big boxes"?
Not to my knowledge, but according to Beloit College I probably did.
What are they even referring to?
I do not know.
Edit: My class is full of idiots!
2-Can you make a comfortable living with your salary?
3-Do you like cookies?
4-Can you cook?
5-Know any good recipes for cookies?
6-What's your favorite kind of cookie?
7-How about ice cream?
8-How old were you when you first had any kind of sexual encounter?
Edit: I mean...like...oral or actual intercourse or being touchy-feely.
9-How young is too young?
10-How old were you when you had your first kiss?
Has your cat ever been featured in a macro?
2. It seems like a lot of you know about tattoos .. I'm going to get my tattoo in June and I normally use a self tanner so I'm not completely white, but I was wondering .. would that affect the tattoo at all? Should I stop using it a few weeks beforehand so I'm not getting tattooed over the tanner? Does it even matter??
Did you draw up a contract?
What should be in the contract?
(I need to know how to sell my seven-year-old car and keep myself safe in the process.)
2. What is your favorite Martin Scorsese movie?
For my money, Gangs of New York. For me, it doesn't get any better than Bill the Butcher.
3. Any vegetarians in the audience tonight? If so, what's your favorite food? A big salad with onions. Smelly, maybe. But healthy. And ofcourse, angel-hair spaghetti.
4. Do you have more trouble getting to sleep at night, or waking up in the morning? Both, it seems. Because I take long naps in the evening and can't sleep in at night.

Thanks in advance!
Yesterday I got a postcard from my best friend in the mail. On the front... Arlington Cemetery. (She knew about his death, even called me on the day of his memorial.)
Insensitive or her just being a dumb-blonde again?
And do I bother saying anything to her about it? (Sad thing is, she's so self centered, if I did say anything, she'd probably take it as a personal attack and get pissy.)
My co-worker is being a total dip-shit today. Can I just throw office supplies at her until she goes away?
So it got me thinking about reusable grocery bags. I would love to have my own reusable grocery bags (you know, the small, standard grocery-bag-size kind) to take with me to the store instead of using plastic or paper bags. So I started looking around on the internet.
Unfortunately, I can't seem to find anyone selling canvas grocery bags for less than $6 each, and I'm sorry, but that's just way too much. I'm not going to spend like $60+ buying reusable grocery bags when I can just use the free ones and then save and reuse them for other things. Yeah, I'm a tightwad.
Does anybody know where you can buy reusable grocery bags for no more than like $1 or $2 each? Anyone know where you can get them for free?
How is it that IKEA can sell HUGE bags for 59 cents each? Do you think it would be OK to use the huge IKEA bag as a grocery bag? (My only fear is that it's so huge and wide, groceries might fall out. Anybody out there have any experience with this?)
If not, what do you drink?
So I have 2 torrents trying to download but they wont. The download ticker isn't going at all and the ETA (4d 6hrs or whatever) thing has a little infinite symbol in it.
I Googled my little heart out and I downloaded the recommended patches, latest version of Azureus with all the bells and whistles, as well as the latest version of Java. Still gettin' nada.
I even tried to scrap the torrents and their content incase the torrent was fucked but nothin. NOTHIN!!
2. How's this week shaping up for you? Good? Bad? Haven't a clue yet?
Which do you find grosser: someone with longish nails that have dirt under them, or nails that are bitten to the quick to the point where they are sore and sometimes bleeding?
I liked the first two Saw movies. How does Saw III compare?
When you feel down, what do you do to cheer yourself up?
What is the most recent picture of your pet(s) that you have taken? I would love to see it.

I love reading but I have the problem of judging a book by its cover.
I like James Patterson and Lisa Gardner but i've read almost everything they've written. I also like Nicolas Sparks and Nora Roberts but i've read almost everything they've written also. I also like "chick lit"
Instead of buying I want to go to the library so I wouldn't know where to look using my current judge a book By its cover method unless I randomly yank books off the shelf.
I'm open to all kinds of suggestions, not just the above mentioned genres.
have you done this diet/cleanse before?
Did you have results?
On a scale of 1-10 how difficult was it for you personally?
can you exercise while you are on it?
1) What reward do you think is appropriate?
2) What can you do to make sure you don't misplace sexy again? Like, a sexy holster or something
3) He's kind of a filthy hobo man and he's got a smug look on his face. If he helped himself to your sexy, should his reward reflect this unwanted sexy abuse, or are you just happy to get it back?
2) I am contemplating doing a complete 180 on my degree and going to culinary school. There are several institutes near me in the LA area, but most seem to offer Associates rather than Bachelor degrees. Is this the norm? What kind of position can I expect to get with an Associates?
3) I'd dearly love to go to the CIA (the campus in the Napa Valley area) but moving up there just isn't feasible right now. I know the CIA is the pinnacle, but what makes it so distinguished?
2- Worst advice you've given out recently?
3- Waiting for anything in the near future? If so, what is it?
4- Something that has surprised you in a good way lately?
5- Do you read all of the comments made before you in posts here?
1- Sometimes. I've gotten into a couple of authors this way. And been icked out by a couple. You win some, you lose some.
2- To dig a handmade swimming pool. I'm dumb.
3- I WAS waiting for a hotel confirmation, but got it sent to me just as I was typing out this question. Hahaha.
4- Said hotel confirmation said there's a whirlpool ensuite. NICE.
5- Most of the time, unless there's a couple of pages worth.
My dog, Tasha, has always been terrified of them, and whenever there is one, she cries, paces back and forth, and nudges at me every 2 minutes. She absolutely will not leave me alone, no matter what I'm doing, and if I ignore her, she cries and howls. I've had many sleepless nights during storms because of this, and I don't know what to do to make her feel better.
1b. If so, with what in them?
2. How hard did you laugh when you find out that Belgium just passed a law that bar-b-q'ing in your backyard will now be taxed to help fight global warming. Oh, or do you buy that move towards humanitarian outreach. ;) (Please take this with humour, not outrage.)
2. Did the thing that was supposed to happen, happen?
My MIL evidently participated in a chain letter involving grandmothers sending books to grandchildren. Instead of her name and address, she put my daughter's name on the list and her age and then sent age appropriate books to all the kids on her list. The fact that she sent my 2YO daughter's information to complete strangers kind of freaks me out. I wish she'd asked me about it.
3. Have you heard of this particular chain letter?
According to Wiki, chain letters going through the US Postal Service are illegal if they involve money or anything of value. Asking for money is illegal but asking for business cards or recipes is not.
4. Would books be considered to be something of value?
Outing a straight person
If you were at a coming-out party and the host outed Bruno, would you believe he was gay? Even if he denied it up and down, would you dismiss it as the closet talking?
Can you 'in' a gay person, so that everybody starts thinking he was gay all along and just playing gay for whatever reason?
2) Would you use it on your heathen child?
3) Does anyone want a 2 year old?
4) How do you get the coffee your two year old spilled out of the white carpet?
5) Why the hell am I considering have another monster child?
( Collapse )
1.) I'm going during Bon week. Am I crazy?
2.) I'm going alone. Am I crazy?
3.) Has anyone ever attended Daimonji or Awa-Odori and if so, what do you have to say about it?
4.) How many nights should I stay in Tokyo? I was thinking 4. I'll be in the country for 2 weeks.
5.) How many nights should I stay in Kyoto? I was thinking 2 or 3.
6.) Have you been to Shikoku? What can you tell me about it?
7.) Have you ever biked from Shikoku to Hiroshima on the famous bike path over the bridges/islands? Was it as awesome as it sounds or were you disappointed?
8.) Can you reccommend any vegan/vegetarian restaurants?
9.) I'm transgendered (female to male). I pass most of the time when I'm travelling, so I'm not worried about that, but I know bathrooms are different in Japan. Will this be a problem or do they still have private stalls?
10.) Do you have any suggestions of things to see anywhere near Tokyo, Kyoto, or Shikoku? I'm open to anything, but my favorite activities are museums, stuff that's off the beaten path, gay bars, and bargain shopping.
Thanks! More questions to come later, I'm sure.
Does it work well or does it suck?
What is the best you've ever used?
What is the worst you've ever used?
Are you a woman or a man and do you feel you sweat more or less than average for your sex?
Have you ever tried one of those wacky alternative methods of sweat/smell reduction (like botox shots or crystal sticks or something)? Did they work for you?
Twice before I have posted about my text messaging project in this community (here is the most recent) and it has generated lots of interest. Thanks to all of you who have been typing up your messages and sending them to me via this post
Anyway, I have some exciting news - the school FINALLY paid for me to have my own cell account.

If you have a S.O. (or have had), do you:

8. Ranch dressing or Italian dressing
any amazing ones (about anything) that you'd recommend?

If you drink cocktails, what is your favorite (gin based or other)?
I think gin is nasty but maybe I'm just drinking the wrong stuff.

2. What are you dreading?
3. What was the last embarassing thing you did?
4. Are real fried raviolli the tits or what?
1. I dunno, but I just saw one squirrel effin' slap another one, then mount her like a friggin' cowboy. Crazy animals.
2. Going to the dorm's office.
3. Locked myself out of the dorm room. Again. I did the exact same thing at the exact same time yesterday. See, this is why pain pills are bad, folk.
"Across the generations we have proclaimed the imperative of self-government, because no one is fit to be a master and no one deserves to be a slave."
1. Who said the above quote? If you don't know - take a guess. I know you KNOW the person who said it. And no cheating!
2. Questions about mothering:
a. How soon did you go back to work after having a child? Was it difficult for you?
b. Who watched your child/children when you did return to work?
c. If you are not a mother - how soon did your mother go back to work when you were a child?

5)Have you ever had a health scare/concern but it turned out to be nothing?

3) Is anyone really surprised that Keith Richards snorted his father's cremains?
How do I convince my fiancee to let me have a cat?

My mom is looking for shoes that were on Oprah. Apparently they were on Oprah a while back and Oprah called them "the shoes". They are sandal-like and have removable straps that come in all sorts of colours. I suck at Google and came up with nothing.

What do you think of it?
Is it possible to find a respected correspondence school? My initial impression is that they may not be entirely respected potential employers. I'm interested in studying nutrition, but I'm planning on getting married in the next year or so, and my future husband is going to be in a career that may or may not involve moving frequently. Thus, I do not want to be tied down to a traditional university. I took a break from school for a few years and am interested in going back now.
What can you tell me, tqc?

Could you be so kind as to type out a sentence or two that I could build a story off of? (I'm not asking you to write a paragraph for me, just maybe one or two sentences like "she opened a drawer")
How do you remove them?
Do they make your breath smell?
1. I get one or two every couple of months and they annoy me so much.
2. I brush my teeth longer while focusing especially on the back of my throat and by accident, I usually gag them up.
3. I don't know, no one has said anything to me about it.
Can someone (please, for the love of God) tell me, can two of the sub-variables be combined within one function to get me under the seven-function cap? For example:
(Main variable (IF A or B, do one thing), (if C, do another)).
Right now, it has to read (main variable (if A, do this), (if B, do that), and (if C, shove it up your spreadsheet ass)).
In my dream world, I can add an "OR" function to the example of what I want. I just can't figure out how. Anyone know if / how this can be done? I'll be your best friend if you tell me.
Edit: Also, dammit, how do I tell it to do something in the case of B, when B translates to "if this column formatted for a date is blank, do it." Right now I have it set as "If the formatted cell equals 0, do it," and that function is completely ignored. How do I specify "if it's blank?"
1. Do you think that if a person is large but confident, she can be deemed beautiful?
(#1 does not relate to #2, I am not confident, and sometimes I have a tendency to slouch, as if to hide my non-existant chest.)
2. (girls can answer this too but it's directed especially at the guys!)
Guys, do you look at girls who are not good looking? I might be overly sensitive or just very pathetic, but I realise that some guys would look at me when I walk past, and I can't tell they're looking because I'm ugly, or because I have some food on my cheek, or something like that. I am overweight, not good looking, no hot bod, hot butt, nice hair. In fact, I'm a plain jane. But guys look at me too. Maybe they're looking at me in the 'oh my so ugly' kind of way? Big sigh.

There is this girl at my school, very nice, but she just COMES IN to my apartment without notice (it's dorm apartments, she knocks on the door and the roommates answer...). She usually comes in on Wednesdays, a few hours before we have a class at 6:30.
Just a few minutes ago, she knocks. I'm very busy: I have to do lots of writing for a research paper (which she should be doing TOO, damn it!) AND studying for a test tomorrow (which she should also be doing too), and I'm figuring out where I'm going to live next semester (since I'm getting kicked off because of the DAMN INCOMING FRESHMEN getting priority), and I'm figuring out some birthright stuff for the summer. And damn it, she knocks on the door, asking me if I wanted to go clubbing with her. As much as I'd like to go clubbing, I have books on the desk and papers (and I'm on LJ, which is very very important :P), I can't go clubbing. Because it is a Tuesday night, I have work to do, and I need to figure lots of stuff out. Seriously. CALL ME FIRST!! I should have never given this girl my apartment number.
Could this be something from getting the tattoo or is it just a coincidence?
tqc, what do you do to alleviate severe boredom?
also: there is a british teen dramadey called Skins and it's amazing; it centers all around the lives of a group of friends in bristol and they party, drug, and inner turmoil themselves to pieces. i watched the last episode of the first season and the second season hasn't been made yet. what is your favorite show from overseas? (or at least, not exactly in your country/homeland).
2. And, by the way, what do you guys think about mental disorders? I'm wondering if anyone here thinks they're a load of crap.
There's three fleshy sort of tubes around her nasal cavity that have enlarged and are preventing her from breathing well. They are mostly spongy, but have some cartilage. She's going to have to have surgery to fix it. But I don't know what's wrong or what the surgery would be. And I'm not sure how to Google it...?
Any clue as to what this is?

I am a Senior in high school and next year I will be attending UCSC. I had a tour of the campus today and learned about the college system. After having heard the "official" descriptions of the various colleges and having seen them, I still cannot decide which one I want to attend.
I think that I am debating between Merill, Cowell, and possibly Porter but I really have no idea what's right for me.
My question is this: What's the "word on the street" about the various colleges, especially those I named. Which ones have the most intensive party scene? Which have the least? What's your general impression of them? What are the unofficial reputations of the colleges, particularly Merill, Cowell, and Porter?
If it helps, I am a female, lesbian, into reading, writing, and social activism. I listen to a ton of music and will probably major in either History or Anthropology. I smoke weed but don't drink much and I generally tend to be pretty quiet and laid back, however I do like to party and would like at least some access to a social scene. I like peace and tranquility but I also have no problem with loud noise and some crazyness.
Apart from that, is there any other random information I should know about the school that they couldn't/wouldn't/didn't tell me on my tour? Do you like it? Is there anything you think I should know?
So why do teachers teach students MLA Format in preparation for college? I've yet to write a college paper in MLA format.
Are there any places where I can search scholarly journals, besides Jstor or Google Scholar?
=) But it is an interesting question though =)
1. How do you meet/greet new people?

3. What was the last irritating/inconvenient thing that happened to you?

The community rules have been updated. Things are mostly the same, but the wording has been done so the rules are less TL;DR and more accurately reflect the spirit of the community.
The major new addition is that deleting/screening comments left by other users is now verboten. If you truly have an issue with a comment left by another user, let the mods know, and we'll deal with it. Deleting/screening other people's comments is rude, stifles discussion (which is a major part of what makes this community fun), and only causes drama.
Any comments? Questions? Suggestions? Spelling errors? Adoration? Wailing and gnashing of teeth over the iron curtain that has fallen over thequestionclub? Please feel free to leave it here, or over in tqc_mods (if you don't want anyone else to see your comments).
Some stuff is clear cut. If you own pretty much all the CDs (or mp3s, as the case may be) for a band its pretty clear cut you're a fan. Or if you've intentionally seen then a bunch of times in concert. But I'm not a big concert go-er so that's not much of a criteria. And there are only a few bands that I own more than 2 CDs by them. Some bands are particularly odd for me, like Jimmy Buffett or U2 or Foo Fighters. I like a bunch of their songs but don't like a single one of their CDs. In the case of the Foo Fighters in particular, I like all their songs I've ever heard on the radio but I've listened to all their CDs and dislike everything else they've ever done.
And is there anyone who doesn't think that this is a ridicously overanalyzed and nitpicky meaningless question on my part? I geniunely want to know the answer but I also feel somehow foolish for needing some kind of guideline for defining my level of fandom/like of something.
Because Misery loves Company, what's the most stupid thing you've done lately?
One of my favourite shows ever is Maid Marian and Her Merry Men.
Have you heard of it?
I first saw it when I was 13 and I got totally hooked on it and I totally love it now, even though i'm 21. Every time I watch it, I notice new things about it. The cast is fantastic (actors from Blackadder and Red Dwarf) the writing is clever, the jokes are at all sorts of different levels, there's political commentary, social commentary, parody, puns, sexual innuendo, cultural/pop references. I love the Robin Hood legend in general, and this makes it just hilarious, and the characters are lovely. Marian is a lot like me. I love the twist on the legend- that history is largely chauvinistic, and Marian was the leader of the gang and was forgotten over history. I love how much of a yuppie/metrosexual Robin is and how sweet he is. I love how the Baddies aren't evil, they've just got a different opinion/worldview. I love the random references to things, and the historical anachronisms. I love the messages behind things. I love the songs- it's a musical. The songs are funny and catchy. I love how it's truly suitable for all ages in my opinion. Four year olds can watch it, and adults can watch it and laugh without feeling like it's totally dumbed down. I love how the style is similar to some sort of mix between Red Dwarf, Blackadder, pantomime, and a musical. And I love that after all these years it can still make me laugh.
What about you?
I really wish I could, but I'm only 5'5.75'' I want to share in your experience if you're lucky enough to meet the criteria.
I'm looking for a new HD right now, and trying to figure out what will work with my mobo. What's the diff between UltraATA and UltraDMA? What will work with what? My mobo is ASUS A7V333.

What do you think about making a mixtape for somebody this week? Do it with me.
I just had an argument with someone and am wondering what other people think:
Let's say a woman is raped and does not report it. She then finds out that she is pregnant, a result of the rape. She decides to raise the child.
Do you think that the man should have paternal rights to the child, because she chose not to report the rape?
Any other non-con paid survey/offer sites that you know of?
Do these things really work??
