so, any good mixtape themes?
I packed up and moved to Utah about 3 weeks ago.
2. I remember seeing a while back something about a lake here in Utah that had a spiraly path thing going into it that you could walk on. Anyone remember anything like this?
I ask because I would really love to visit this =)
3. Any ideas for fun summer jobs?
Why does it do this? How can I make the iBook understand that it's not an empty cd but a dvd with two episodes of Heroes on it? The first time it worked all nice and everything. I put the dvd in, Dvdplayer started, everything was wonderful. Why won't it do that anymore, thequestionclub? Why?
2. Were you ever told to just put commas where you would take a breath while reading the sentence?
3. I might be going to a "no clothes" theme night at a bar tomorrow night... what are some interesting things I can use to cover myself? I'm a small female, and it looks like it might be rainy tomorrow night.
Should I wrap it around her leg like her other arm? Should she be propping herself up with it? I honestly just can't decide. :\
2.) Did the Smashing Pumpkins' album Adore suck or not?
3.) My friend, let's call her Linda, met a couple on Craiglist for the purpose of having a threesome with them. She met the couple, had sex with them, and met a different couple the following week and had sex with them. I think she plans on continuing this. I dissaprove, but is it my place to be worried/say anything/whatever? What would you do?
So, finally, the questions:
1. Does your college/university have fake greek organizations?
2. If so, what are they like? What do you think about the people in them?
3. If there aren't any or you don't know about them, would you be tempted to get involved in a fake sorority like the one described?
You can choose the way you die. Which of these scenarios would you prefer to be the way you 'go out'?
TQC is now the set of 300. Places, people. What role do you play?
If marijuana is a gateway drug, what is the gateway activity to furryism?
Probably not this one
a - Find house at X price
b - Obtain loan for X price (minus down payment)
c - Purchase house
Or is it:
a - Obtain loan for Y
b - Find house that costs about Y
c - Purchase house
2) If you are American or own American-manufactured electronic devices and have travelled to or live in South Korea and/or Japan, what kind of outlet adaptors did you use to charge your devices from Korean/Japanese outlets? My searching says I'm likely to run into both type C and type F plugs in Korea; which did you find more commonly in, say, hotels? And in Japan?
how would you personally cope if you knew someone IRL who dealt w/this?
and what would you do to help that person cope?
-I'm looking to teach myself Flash, Dreamweaver, and Photoshop CS2. There are tons of books on amazon.com but some of the reviews seem a little questionable.
I had a dream last night in which I was flirting with my crush-of-the-week via comments on our LJs. That was pretty pathetic.
How are you feeling today?
I'm tired. I stayed up til 12:30 compiling a list of all our classmates - Freshman through Senior years - for the reunion this year. And let me tell you, TQC, there were a LOT of us. Final count - 591 students. JesusMaryandBiff. But laughing at our horrible yearbook pictures was totally worth it.
And just for shits'n'giggles, which animal makes the most annoying sound?
I'm going with Canadian Geese. No, male <s>Canadian</s> Canada Geese that are trying to impress the ladies by strutting around honking at the other male geese. And they're doing a lot of that right now here.
So, TQC member, are you a giver or a taker?
2.) Do you usually buy the widescreen or full screen version? Why?
3.) Have you ever double dipped and bought more than one version of a movie?
4.) Do you usually listen to the commentary tracks? If so, which movie has your favorite commentary?

2. Do you think a 20 year old girl needs a chaperone to drive around the Northwestern United States?
3. Where did you move from and where did you move to?
4. How has the place you are from impacted who you are?
5A. If you have younger siblings do you try to look out for them? In what ways?

Why do people, especially teenagers, take videos of themselves lip-synching and badly singing other songs?
For those who do the grocery shopping in your household, if your spouse/SO were to do it, what would they bring home?
2)Have you ever known someone personally (oh maybe even yourself) who deserved a Darwin award or an honorable mention? If not, have you ever just known OF someone who deserved either of them?
3)Do you think people who rap or beatbox just have a natural ability or that they spent a lot of their time practicing? If you spent all your time practicing doing either of those would you excel at it?
4)If you had a cover band, what would you call it and what band's songs would you cover? And would you have a kazoo player in your band?
2. Why does everyone in college drink vodka?
3. Favorite beer?
4. Has anyone ever told you that you're beautiful? How did you respond? Did you believe them?
5. Pretend (or don't, if it's true) that you have a fuck buddy. He's nice and you know that he genuinely likes you as a person, even offering to make it somewhat more like a relationship until he leaves forever in a month. The foreplay is awful, the sex is pretty good, but you're pretty bored with him. You just had an amazing second date with someone else who'll be around next year (college situation). You're very interested. Do you break it off now with the fuck buddy or wait until things get official with the other? And relatedly...
6. Ever been dumped for someone of the opposite sex? Or dumped someone for another person of their opposite gender?
7. What's with all the beer-haters in TQC? If you hate beer, have you ever tried decent beer (like, not Bud Light)?

3. What is something have two of, just in case one breaks/stops working?
Can someone who has pale, pale skin, lots of freckles and rosy cheeks still have a cool complexion if they have ash brown hair and bright blue-green eyes, or does everyone with lots of freckles automatically fall into the "warm complexion" category?
It has something that looks like black dirt or blackheads all over it. It's really disgusting.
Anyone else have a cat with this problem? Anyone know what it is?
I scraped most of it off (it didn't seem to bother her) but it keeps coming back.
Chocolate cake or Kashi bar?
Edit: I probably should mention that I'm SUPPOSED to be on a diet here. lol.
2. If you make it homemade, what is your favorite recipe for macaroni and cheese?
3. If you make mac and cheese from a box, do you ever stir anything else in? (like peas, ham, hot dogs...)
4. What's for lunch today, since no one has asked yet ;)
True or False: Not being able to post a comment sucks right now.
How would you tell an e-crush that you want to have his babies? Not literally... mostly... *ahem*
Do you have Good Friday off?
*Edit* Okay, so comments are back... Don't care, still do the poll. Lunch is going to be boring today - I need entertainment.
1. How do I turn my stupid iPod off?!?!
What is going on with it?
CAN YOU HELP?
2. What is your favorite meal?
3. Have you ever considered yourself pathetic in a situation?
Just my opinion.
So, this time let's take a shot for the other team. Who do you think did the best job portraying God & Jesus on the big or little screen? While I realize (Holy Trinity and all) that most folks are big with the Jesus & God are the same entity...you gotta admit that not many actors can pull that kinda thing off. So, try and pick for each role.
Actually haven't seen a lot of Jesus onscreen that I can clearly recall, most of it's stuff I saw as a much smaller me; vaguely recall Jesus Christ Superstar but not enough to say anything about it and I mainly just remember I didn't like it much.
As to God, that's beyond easy. For the Oh God series (saw the 1st & 3rd) I'd say George Burns is possibly the best God I've ever seen. Add to that a dash of Alannis Morrisette from Dogma and that's the best I've seen for portraying the Big Guy.
I'd like to think that the actual Truth can be gleaned from a hybridization of the two.
So, who do you like for these roles?
Are there any celebrities that you are positive are gay, but have yet to come out?
in other news, how's your day going so far? it is DRAGGING over here :(
-Would your answer change if they were nice instead of annoying?
-Would your answer depend on if they looked well off and were buying nice things, or if you saw them buying necessity food items and paying in food stamps?
Can someone tell me how I can play music from Windows Media Player with my laptop closed?
When I close my laptop, the music shuts off and I don't like this.
Thank you in advance!
Figured it out! Thank you!
I'm in Marie Biology and in the notes the teacher constantly uses the word "fishes" and so I pointed it out to him and he told me if was a word that meant "a bunch of different kind of fish located in one area." Me and some of my fellow class mates think that he is just full of it and doesn't want to seem like an idiot and have to go back and change all his slide shows.
So, please... is it a word or not?
Do you think it's fair the man ultimately has no choice in the matter? (I mean this in the sense that while yes, he made the choice to have sex, he cannot force her to abort a child and she makes the final decision on whether or not she will continue the pregnancy)
Should he have to pay child support?
Does your opinion change if the man isn't childfree/hasn't discussed not wanting children with the woman?
-edit- this has no relation to my post last night about pregnancy. :)
Only thing is, I haven't decided on a color. I love bold, interesting color combinations, but I can't settle on any one combination. This is where you come in, TQC! My room has been pale girly pastel colors for as long as I can remember (I painted it purple in elementary school, it was pink before then) and I'm tired off my little girl colors and ruffled curtains. What colors would look awesome in my room? Should I paint a mural on one of my walls, or should I leave it? Decals? Interesting painting techniques?
-I have and it's so good!
2. Cheese popcorn: so good or no good?
-Nooo Goood. I like carmel though.
3a. Ever had a pair of Birkenstocks?
-I just got a pair on Monday! They hurt my feet a little, but my auntie said they do that at first.
3b. If you have had some, did they hurt at first? Were they comfortable after?
1. Do you think Saddam loved his children? Do you think he took joy in their laughter and first steps? Do you think he gave them hugs when they got cuts and bruises?
and totally unrelated:
2. Have you ever seen black playdoh? Isn't pretty much the coolest thing ever?
3. What color is your favorite crayon? I'm always drawn to the black one, but I also love mac and cheese orange.
My boyfriend and I have been together over 7 years, but this is one thing that just can't be discussed without my boyfriend saying it's a "deal-breaker".
I understand that he takes pride in the name and would like to pass it along, however, I feel like a child should have their own name, or at least not a name like Amos Guido.
I happen to know that my boyfriend's mother didn't like the name either, and actually only suggested this to his father as a joke, but his father took such great delight in it that she didn't have the heart to tell him no. And so I guess I have her to thank for this situation. My boyfriend doesn't know about this...and I'm pretty sure it would do more harm than good for me to be the one to tell him that.
What do I do? I've considered suggesting we see a counselor to help us discuss it more civilly, but I'm not sure how far that would get us. I've considered putting Amos Guido Smith IV on the birth certificate and then just call him something random like "Nick", but I'm afraid his father would still insist on calling him Amos and it would be weird. I know some people who are III's go by "Trip" is there anything like that for IV's? I don't want to call him "Quad"...
I'd like to imagine we'll just have girls and not have to worry about it, but we've already had 1 boy and for some reason my family only seems to produce males anymore, so I figure it will be an issue.
Any suggestions...other than running for the hills? Thanks!
When it is born, it becomes known that the newborn child has a physical and mental condition that will debilitate it to the point of never being able to live a normal life. It will never be able to contribute to society, and will always need personal care and financial support. (EDIT: By this, let's suppose they'll never have the mental capacity to hold even a menial job, or really connect with people at all, however, they'd be able to complete a bowel movement and eat without (much) assistance.)
Imagine the parents state that they would like to terminate this baby's life. Their reasoning is thus:
- If this condition was known *before* the baby was born, they would have terminated the pregnancy. However, this condition cannot be detected until after birth.
- Their child will never live a normal life, let alone a fulfilling one.
- The family does not have the resources to care for this child, but feels that a life in foster or community care will be even more traumatizing for the child.
- The health care system, welfare system, and social care system are all horribly overburdened as it is.
- It is likely that once there is no longer anyone to care for the child as it grows up, either due to lack of resources, lack of funding, or legislation that limits care, it will end up living on the streets like huge numbers people who have mental and physical disabilities do today.
- Aside from the fact that homeless life is not one they want for their child, the world already has way too many homeless people that are unwanted or forgotten by society, so their child's chances of finding help getting out of this situation are very slim.
- The world is overpopulated as it is, and adding another person who not only does not contribute, but drains the world's and society's resources is immoral.
Let's also say for the sake of fewer criteria to argue over that ALL of the child's family (immediate and extended) are in agreement with this.
How would you react to this? Would you agree with the parents?
Would your answer change if the child had been diagnosed with such a condition at 6 months? 1 year? 2 years? 3?
What if the parents, instead of stating that they "would like to" terminate their baby's life, had suffocated it instead, and this were their defense in court?
Who has it harder, from a social acceptance perspective: fat people or naturally very thin people?
Is formula feeding REALLY the end of the world?
Also, how many blank comments do you think we can get around here? Wanna test it? ;P
For the record, none of the comments are coming through to e-mail. o_o;;
All fixed, yay!
I cannot remember what I wanted to ask you guys, and it's driving me insane!
I'm looking at hillel.org as my main source and I talked to Hillel at my school. I've also been to Israel when I was 12, but I'm still eligible for the trip. What were your experiences? Anything you think I should know?
I liked Caramel Sutra, but Stephen Colbert's Americone Dream is pretty amazing.

My grandpa who's buying me the tv and stuff asked if I wanted TIVO, but we don't have cable @ the apartment rightnow, So I was wondering if you'd think it's worth it?

What age can you go to bars?
Can you go to a liquor store with your friend and blatantly point out the things you want him to buy?
I just got my Olympus FE-230 about a month ago, my first digital camera. I took the memory card out a few days ago, and today I took some pictures, without the memory card in it. I know I can still upload the pictures to my computer, but is there any way I can put the pictures on the memory card? I like to take the card to Meijer and get prints that way...
I hope this isnt a dumb question, but Im not good with this kinda stuff :) I already searched Google, and read through my cameras instruction booklet, but they didnt even mention the memory card slot. TIA
(Examples would be nice)
I think recreation, since I'm majoring in recreation and leisure.
My doctor prescribed Ethex Ultra Natal. Do I HAVE to take them or I can take any over the counter brand?
The reason I ask is because my insurance limits the quantity to 30 pills a month for $10 when I can buy a big bottle of over 100 pills for $10 over the counter!
If you don't know the answer, do you know of any sites or communities where I can find it?
If you haven't, would you try it?
...I don't think I would
1) Do consider yourself a jealous or possessive person?
2) How does one deal or get rid of jealousy? Is there even a way?
I'm thinking of trying a pair as a birthday treat next month (it's only $10 extra, and I'm suggestible). I have brown hair and brown eyes, with coloring similar to Beni Arashiro. What colour do you suggest?

If you really cannot be bothered posting photos of yourself, what odd things do you collect? provide photos.
Basically, I need to know how much your risk of dying goes up each time you go under for a surgery or operation. Most doctors I've met say 1%, but one person I know cannot seem to grasp this concept. >_<; That, and I'd like it for future reference, and my brain is too foggy to figure out other things to type in other than anesthesia and death.
Pirates of the Caribbean: World's End
The Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Those are the movies on my list for this summer.
1) do your friends have any embarassing pictures of you?
2) What would you do if they posted them in another LJ community?
2) laugh and be horrified
Everyone else: If you could give birth to anything, what would it be? Doesn't matter if you're a dude, in this crazy hypothetical question of mine, people can give birth to whatever they like, so I'm sure a guy could do it too.
Also, what have I been smoking to make me think of this question?
If I could give birth to a litter of kittens, I'd totally get pregnant.
2. Do you wake up with a headache often?

What do you have to lose?
Have you ever gotten any UCP?
What was it?!
Have you ever inherited anything? What was it?
What's the coolest thing you've ever found?
ETA: It's NOT a scam. It's through the WSECU, which is my dad's credit union. My whole family was skeptical, but we called the bank, which has the same number as the one on this notice, and they confirmed. I also could have done it through mail, but chose to do it online, since I do my banking online anyways. Plus, my dad remembers setting it up in 2004 for my birthday checks. Thank you for watching my back though!
When an RV has a 'garage' in back (enough space to fit my dad's motorcycle), is that called something specific?
Have any of you ever rented an RV online? Which site did you use?
We're in NJ, btw.
Thanks if you guys can help at all, I'm really lost on how to go about doing this.
(facing the showerhead, back to showerhead...etc.)
I feel it's useless getting a degree when my passion lies in writing; that's a career you have to strive for as an individual, I don't think any degree will further your success.
So, I'm a bored student on a college campus. I'm getting sick of routine and feeling kind of "blah." My question is, what is something different/fun/interesting I could do to change up my days? I'm looking for anything, it could even be like a fun website you know of or something spontaneous I could do. I know this question is kind of vague, sorry about that, thanks for your help though :)
EDIT: Sorry I should have mentioned before that I only have a little under a month of school left, so it's kind of late to join a club.. I'm just looking for random ideas, thanks
2. Good Trojan VIRUS remover? ;-)
3. Good freeware registry fix?
4. Should I reset my computer and then defrag, or defrag, THEN reset the computer.
Oh, sometimes I think I know so much, then I run into these kinds of things.
2. What kind of face wash/scrub do you use?

-I have a 4.0 GPA and am #1 in my class.
-I got a 2210 (out of 2400) on the SAT. Math was my worst section. I plan on retaking it to go for higher, especially since I got 2 perfect 800s on the reading and writing sections and just need to bring up the math.
-I am especially interested in psychology. I am also considering psychiatry and neurology. I am interested in minors in creative writing, political science, and possibly philosophy. I plan on going on to get my PhD or MD.
-I dance and play the flute, and would like to continue to do so for fun. I do both strictly for recreation, however, and am not interested in an amazing, highly competitive program. I just want to have fun.
-I have spent the past 11 years of my education regurgitating what my teachers say on a piece of paper for a good grade. I am rather sick of doing so. I want a college that emphasizes creative thinking and personal involvement. I want to think for myself.
-I do like to party. No super-serious schools for me. And, preferably, a lower-stress school as well.
-Money. I am poor. I need a school with lots of merit-based financial aid. Obviously, I can earn it.
-Chances to help the community. I currently do a lot of volunteer work and would like to continue to do so in college. I like to "make a difference" and all that.
-Good food and decent dorms, please.
Not that I'm picky or anything, right? Anyway, I'm currently considering:
Washington University in St. Louis
Indiana University (as a backup)
I am, however, very open to other suggestions. So, ideas?
I went to the one I can't spell with the X a long time ago, but don't really remember how it was. Bonus if you give me stories of your experience!
I once heard that the original versions of many fairy tales are already pretty evil. Is this true?
Anyways, I think the effort is adorable and the present is really nice—it's just not me. He got me a jacket (in white) from lululemon, which is an athletic store that has been hugely popular for the last few years. (The pants are a phenomenon unto themselves.)
I was planning on returning this gift as soon as I received it, assuming that he'd probably never notice. (My parents are splitting up, so I'll only see him half of the time anyways.) But now everyone else has made me worried that this would be rude and he would notice.
It's about $120 CAD, and I'd much prefer to take that money and spend it on something else.
What would you do with a received expensive gift that you could return? Is it necessary to tell the gift-giver?
I've got several shifts this week, but I think the managers overstaffed. I'm curious whether to expect to be cut early a lot or enjoy my penitful hours for this week.
Can someone explain the relevance of Al Gore saying "I'm serial!" in the south park episode?
Al Gore uses the word "serial" in place of "serious" and "seriously" in the episode. This is in reference to his gaffe on The Oprah Winfrey Show when he was asked for his favorite cereal and his answer was "Oprah," mistaking the word "cereal" for "serial."
I don't want to believe it, especially since I hold a ministerial position in the oldest Quaker meeting in the community and know that we aren't all this crazy. D: But before I write any kind of response, I want to know if maybe this is a big, dumb joke I'm not getting (which I doubt, as I'd bet my paycheck he means it, and I'm full of bad, unfunny jokes myself).
Pictures are huge cause I wanted detail to show, so I hope it does :P
Now, should I still give the guy good feedback? He mailed it the day after I sent the money. But the edges being bent kind of sucks. :/ He had this thing saying "if you don't purchase insurance it's not my fault if it gets damaged blah blah", and I didn't purchase insurance, but that was cause I didn't even see an option too. I've never bought anything on ebay before, so maybe the n00bness just kicked in and made me miss it, but I also noticed this:
Domestic: US $2.50 Optional
International: Not offered
I live in Canada, so is that considered international from the US? If so, am I unable to get shipping insurance?
I'm leaning towards giving neutral feedback, cause he sent it quickly, but it is somewhat damaged. I don't know if my reasoning is justified though, and I'm also scared he'll leave me bad feedback if I don't give him positive (since I have no feedback from him yet). I'm new to the whole ebay thing, so feedback plz!
Also, is there a good way to flatten out the edges?
Technology is the ROOT CAUSE of modern environmental problems
eep, pretend I worded that as: "is technology the ROOT CAUSE of today's environmental problems?" Also, this question is copied exactly from my philosophy paper, and is open to interpretation.
I'm writing a philosophy essay on this question for my Environmental Ethics class, and while the results of this poll have absolutely nothing to do with my paper, I was just curious as to what other people think (my own family is heavily divided, though I find it interesting that I agree more with my insanely right-wing dad than I do with my somewhat liberal younger sister).
Feel free to explain your answer in the comments, but don't feel obligated. ;)
ETA: secondary question! Do you think reverting to the Amish-type way of life is the best solution to environmental problems? A girl in my Concepts of Environmentalism class firmly believed so.
My answer: While I'm sure it would be effective, I don't believe it is in any way a viable option. Humankind is way too far past that to be able to regress without massive changes in way of life and way of thinking.
We took him to a new vet, so being that he's new, I'm totally skeptical, so then my questions are..
Cats can get asthma? Okay, semi believable, but then.. cats can get emphysema? Wtf? Nobody smokes in this house.. how the hell would he get emphysema..
What prom hairstyles have you seen or had and liked? (all lengths, and ditto on the pictures).

I don't know, I never see the 3-D things and it's annoying.

Coloring Easter eggs is fun: yes/no?
I love it! Every year we color our Easter eggs the friday before Easter and it's always a big to-do, with all of our paint and dye and crayons (yes, crayons), we love it.
How can I get my boyfriend to spend more time with my family? We've been dating 1 1/2 years and he's only been around them a few times, he hates being outside of his comfort zone (translation: house), and my family is the complete opposite of his. Any suggestions to make him relax more?
