Everyone I know thinks this is wierd.

Hey hey, you you!

How do you find new music?

When you discover a new band/artist, do you share it with the rest of the world, or do you keep it hidden so that no one else can become obsessed with them?

5.  What are your opinions on the current correspondants?
I like Rob Riggle and Jason Jones a lot.  Actually Dan B and Samantha B are also usually hilarious.  And so is John Oliver, so I guess all I can say is Aasif're cute...but you gotta step up on the funny, cause it ain't doin' it for me.  And it is too bad none of them can compare to Steve

When I got my license in NYS in 1997, I didn't need to list my hair color, just my height and eye color, which was a blessing because my hair color changed frequently and I would have had no idea what to put (natural color? a color my hair would be only for about six months at the most?).
Now I have moved to Virginia and they have the dreaded question on my license application. I am stuck. My natural color is light ash blonde, this silvery/grey color I hate (this is why I've been dyeing it for so many years), but for the past three years I have been dyeing it bright, natural auburn. It looks real, and I plan to keep dyeing it that color for years to come. The picture on my new license will, of course, have me with bright red hair.
Of course I'm going to ask at the DMV, but I wanted to know:

What would you put in the "Hair Color?" space if you were in my situation?


Does your state ask for hair color?

If so, what did you give as your answer, and is it your natural hair color?

If no, are you relieved?

How important do you think the college you choose is to your future? I'm about to start going to a pretty good school in Illinois, although someday I'd like to be an actor and maybe live on either the east or west coast. Part of me wonders if I should have applied to schools in big urban areas in either of those locations.

So, I attended strict, private Catholic schools for 10 years, until I left to a public school after I was suspended in Grade 9 (I was reprimanded for wearing open-toe shoes and suspended because I shot back with "But Jesus wore sandals") Through Facebook, I have come in contact with about 30 or 40 kids from those schools and TWO are still listed as Catholic. The rest are Atheists and Agnostics. I consider myself one or the other, I haven't yet figured it out.

Many of these people are now bitter toward organized religion. So my question is, what could make everyone turn away? Could it be the schools, the fact that we read more of the Bible than an English text, because it was so strict, all of the above? Or maybe our families?

Were you raised with one religion and later converted as an adult?

Should I go to the campus gym today? I'm feeling a little hefty. :(

Pros: It's included in my tuition, and much less crowded in the summer. I can run without being yelled at by douchebags on the street. I can also drop off some paperwork and pick up a refill on my medication.

Cons: I would have to buy gas, and then find street parking. I have also never used it before.

Does working out around other people bother you? How do you get over that?

I get irritated because people often assume I'm much younger than I am. I'm 23, on the verge of 24 and I still get people thinking I'm in high school.  It really annoys me!  Does anyone else get this? Does it annoy you?

Yesterday I took my mom out to lunch and a booth in the bar opened up before the regular portion of the restaraunt.  The gal seating us asked me if I was 21 (it didn't even matter because minors are allowed in the bar to eat prior to 10 p.m.).  I was the only one she asked! She didn't ask my husband or anything...grrrr!!!!

U.S Postage went up to 41cents today. do you think thats a lot to send a letter? i do, considering it just went up last year.

i heard its bad for dogs to have chocolate. is that true? why?
my boyfriend and i are "dog-sitting" his grandmothers 7 or 8 month old puppy. It's a Miniature Greyhound, so its a petite little thing. This morning when i got out of the shower i went into my room and saw that she had jumped onto our bed, and got at the candy that was on the desk next to the bed. She ate about 4 regular sized Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (or at least thats all i found the wrappers for), and i caught her chewing on a jelly bean, which i took away from here. My boyfriend had already gone to work and forgot his phone at the house. so i left it with my mom who doesnt know much about dogs.  Any idea what will happen to it? Is there anything i should call my mom and tell her?

Yesterday I was talking to my mother about periods and sex for some reason, and she said how one of the good things about period sex is that you can't get pregnant. She then proceeded to tell me that there are only three days out of every month that you can get pregnant. Obviously I explained that you can get pregnant any time of the month, although it's more likely at some times than others and she seemed amazed that she never knew. I wonder how she's gone this long having only had three children if she didn't know this!

When was the last time you knew more than your parents about something that they really should've known about?

Applications and such.

So. I really really really want to work at Hot Topic. I recently quit my office job and I'm looking for a more entertaining less soul crushing option. Hot Topic was an obvious choice.
I went to their website and printed out an application, I filled it out and went to turn it into the store (on Tuesday May 8th) where I want to work. I turns out that they are hiring, so that was convenient.
I went into the store, and it looked like the only one working was the manager and she was busy, so I waited politely off to the side until she was done. Our conversation went something like this:

Dulce: Hi, I saw outside that you're hir...
Manager: Yes, we are but we ran out of applications
D: Oh, well I brought an application from home, is it alright if I leave it with you?
M: ._. oh. Yeah, sure.
D: Thank you :] *walks out*

I was really disappointed with my chances there, I mean she looked like she was going to rip it up and throw it out. THEN there's the issue that I didn't actually sign the application because my printer didn't print that part out and I didn't notice. I signed the part where I am authorizing for a background check and such, but not the application itself. Oh man.

So before it gets to tl;dr proportions, Question Club, my question is this:

What do I do?!

Should I call the store and follow up? Or wait here patiently for them to contact me??

I really don't want to go out and look for another office job :[

Does this mean it's angry or possessed?

So my computer screen is now red. I can still see and do everything, but it's like someone pasted one of those old red lens filters over my screen. When I try to adjust the colors the monitor's menu is in normal colors, and nothing I do seems to help.

So my questions:

1.What's the weirdest thing that's ever happened to you on a computer?

2. Anyone have any clue how to get the red out? (Maybe Visine...)

1. Let's say you had sex with a guy you didn't really like, ended up falling pregnant.
Would the idea of an abortion hurt a lot less because you didn't care about the guy, compared to getting rid of a baby who's father was someone you did care about & did love?
I mean they're both 50% you...

Sorry if that's worded a bit strangely, I hope you all get what I mean.

The odea of abortion always upsets me (pro choice though) but yes. It would be a lot harder because there would always be the feeling of.. what if we could have made it work.

2. Favourite talk show host? and why..

Do you like Kevin Smith movies?

I loathe them. I just watched mallrats last night and it made me want to die. It really bothers me how unbelievable the dialogue is. People don't usually give these grandiose monologues in highly inflated diction while they're screaming at each other. I guess I can see why people like them, though. It's that zeitgeist of the 90s, right?

Do any of you have an above ground pool?

My mom is dead set on buying one today or tomorrow. It would be nice... just going out and lounging in said pool. I have to wonder how easily the dogs could kill it. I have two Pit Bulls, a Border Collie mix and a Catahoula Leopard Dog who are very active. The BC mix LOVES water.

So any of you that might have one... do you have dogs who leave it alone?

1. How often are you supposed to go to the Chiropractor? 

2. Likewise, How often are you supposed to see a Massage therapist?

3. Do you use either of the two above services for either medical benefits or personal enjoyment?

a1. I don't know. But my father used to ( or maybe still does ) went at least once a week, sometimes twice a week. When I was in high school he would make me go once every three or six months or so.  I also had another friend who would go once every week or every other week.

a2.  Never been to a massage therapist, but I think I would like it a heck of a lot better than the chiropractor.

a3. I think I need to get in and get my back worked on. Damn 'ergonomic' my ass chair.

Does anyone remember from their high school/middle school/whatever days what substitute teachers did to be annoying as hell?
What d'you think is the best way to keep control of a bunch of high schoolers?

I'm 20 and I will start substituting soon, but damn, some of these people will only be 1-2 yrs younger than me. Also I'm only 5'0" and I look young so it will probably be one of those "oh hay u freshman n00b?" "No, I'm your substitute."

Oh, I always hated it when substitutes decided to tell me their life stories... like I really care. Or use half the class period to explain their strict rules when they are only there for 40min or so anyway (at least where I went to school).

My accent + Foreign words = Disaster

One of my favorite books is Love in The Time of Cholera. It is set in the Caribbean and was originally written in Spanish.

I am horrible at pronouncing names that are the least bit foreign and despite having read it way too many times, still do not entirely know how to pronounce the names of the main characters. I've just been reading them fairly phoenetically.

1. How easy is it to get a job as a waitress at a place like Applebee's or Friday's with no waitressing experience? Anyone done this before? Will they train me or do they expect applicants to be ready to work?
I want to work as a waitress this summer, but I don't have any experience. I've been a receptionist, a camp counselor, and a phone operator.

2. Do you get emotional at concerts?
Yes. I'm a very emotional person, but I always feel silly getting sappy at concerts. I cried at Sleater-Kinney's last concert (partly because it was so amazing and partly because it was their last concert). I cried at a Fiona Apple concert because her songs hit really close to home and hearing them live was really moving, and I'd probably cry if I ever saw Radiohead live. Oh and I got so mad at a kid at a Yeah Yeah Yeah's concert I almost punched him. He was wasted, peed on the floor, caused a commotion, then started a mosh pit. Ugh.

3. If someone comes up to you and asks to take a photo of you, do you let them or not?
Yes. Someone just did, and I let them. As I photographer I know it's very frustrating when people say no. I once had a teacher who wouldn't let anyone take her picture, not even for the yearbook, because she thought it would "capture her soul". Hm.

1.  Have you ever told the truth to someone and the person you told thought you were lying?   What was the consequence?

2. How do you feel about a person who believes they are old enough to be treated like an adult, but if they screw up, they say it isn't their fault, because they are a young?

My answers:

1.  My friend and I were once trying to outrun her abusive ex-husband.  In the process, we lost him, but ran a red light that had recently been installed (and thusly I hadn't seen it before).  The cop didn't believe me, but I was young and cute, so he just rolled his eyes and let me off with a warning.

2.  It drives me crazy.  Being treated like an adult is not a right, it's a privilege.  It especially bothers me when an upperclassmen in high school does something stupid, then rather than admit they made a mistake, they blame it on their age.


My doctor's office has a sign up saying that "All lab tests will be sent to Hospital XXYY unless otherwise specified." Well, I need a blood test to assess my free testosterone level. I found out that this isn't available through the lab they use, because they filed the wrong test and I got back some weird results relating to a disease I don't even have. (It had a similar name for the testing, but the reference ranges were WAY off.)

So I found a lab that has my insurance on its "covered" list. I live in Michigan. When I go to browse the lab tests, it says that the Free T test takes place in a lab in Cali. For those of you that know anything about insurance, can I still get this lab test taken & covered by my insurance even though it's gonna cross the country?

is there a point to this community?

the entire time I have been here whenever I have voiced my opinion on something 98% of the community have ganged up on me, which seems to pretty much be the standard here

with every other community I have been in I have been able to have hours of debates with other people, without having any form of personal attack made on myself

and yet here, which I am assuming is supposed to be a discussion forum, as soon as you try and voice your opinion, you are bullied for it?

Sorry but I have chose to leave this community, I have met a few good people here and had some nice discussions with a few of you and made some friends (you know who you are :)), but I am getting sick and tired of being bullied just because I have a different opinion to someone, and everyone just flocks to thier side like blind sheep (pretty much like the religions I was speaking out against)

so bring on all of your ooooh, good riddance quotes and "check your spelling" and all of the crap I have gotten used to since I joined here, even after all of your abuse, my views are unchanged, not even dented :)

to anyone who hasnt even spoken to me before ignore this because it doesnt regard to you at all, although I think many of you will now what people I am referring to, I came here for fun and to make friends so, I shouldnt really have to put up with this.

so to all the people I have made friends with, thank you :)
to all the people I havent spoken to, sorry I didnt get to know you better

However, in NY they follow caveat emptor - the buyer beware. The seller has no duty to disclose unless the seller created the defect. They can't lie, either, if asked.

Which do you think is better, and why?

Has this ever hurt you if/when you bought property?

Has this ever helped you when you wanted to sell?

Also, sellers are generally protected by stigma statutes - this means they don't have to disclose to the buyer if someone was murdered in the house or something like that. Do you think they should have to tell the buyer? Why?

1. Has anyone made a passing judgement of you recently? What was it? Were they right?
2. What is something people tell you all the time about yourself you don't quite believe?
3. Have you said anything off the cuff lately that you later were surprised at yourself for saying? Do you think you should have said it? Did you mean it?
4. If you own a car, what does it cost you per 6 month period for insurance? What state are you in, what insurance company?
5. Do you sleep naked?

I bought a new notebook today mainly because I really liked it. Its black with a photograph of a waterfall on the front of it adn it says 'inspiration' with a quote underneath it. Any suggestions as to what I could do with it? I already have a diary. I write a lot of poems but I keep them on the computer mostly.

Do you keep a diary?
How long have you kept one?
What do you write in it?
Anything special about it?

The question:  What OCD tendencies do you have, if any?

For instance, I count everyf*ckingthing in sight when I'm at Wal-Mart.  And when I'm sitting at the computer waiting for something to load, I will line the edge of my cursor up with crap on my browser window (like the minimized screens on the lower toolbar).

1. Have you ever heard of a company called Unlimited Sales? If so, do you know anything about them?

2. I applied over for the phone with a job working for them. They said they fly you out to Wyoming for free and train you for two weeks, then send you off places to work. Travel and transportation are paid for, but after your training you have to pay $15 a night at the hotels they have you stay at. My dad thinks it sounds kind of shady. Does it sound like some kind of a scam to you, or is that fairly common in travelling/promotion type jobs?

3. They asked for my height and weight in the interview, which seemed weird to me. Will they not hire me because I'm too fat?

WHY are people donating money to the moronic couple who lost their kid when they were stupid enough to leave them alone????

Do you have sympathy for the parents?

Why do you think this story is getting so much press? Kids go missing every day?

As a parent, would you leave your children alone at the age of 3? Even if you were checking on them every 30 minutes? (I don't know why this matters, it takes less than a minute to take kids)

I never said I have no sympathy for the little girl. However, children go missing EVERY DAY, and there is never as much press as this. Hell, J.K Rowling donated money to find this little girl. I truly hope she is found, quickly, and safely. As a parent, I would NEVER, be this stupid.

UK Car Insurance

Hey all,

Shopping around for car insurance, easy enough to get cheap quotes but not so easy to find out which companies offer a good service, so here are two questions:

1. Can you recommend a UK car insurance company based on their customer service, and I'm talking when you call them outside of office hours with an actual problem? Can you warn me against those with call centres abroad and/or unhelpful policies?

2. Can you recommend good UK consumer resources (e.g. review websites or forums)?

Thanks for any help!

Okay TQC:
- The "adult jobs" I've applied for won't begin calling for interviews until the first/second week of June.
- My accommodation is paid for through September
- I have quite a bit of money left on my student loan

Would it be entirely irresponsible if I were to use some loan money and flee the country for next week? I'm restless. Or, should I wait until I've secured a stable job before spending money that I could use to pay back and take a chunk off my debt?

What can I do to fill my time besides refreshing TQC's page? I read a lot as is and have my dissertation responsibilities fulfilled for the time being, what would be a good hobby? Non-serious answers most welcome.

And for those doing Weight Watchers, what are your favorite low-point snacks? I've been snacking a lot on peppers, carrots, and cucumbers with a bit of fat free dressing.

this is in response to my last question, and i am asking this fully expecting to get flamed again, but in all honesty, are all of you TCQers so completely heartless that it would not bother you if you saw dogs/cats tied up in pain being sold for food on the streets [in an asian country you went to on vacation] ?????? seriously people. god damn. it was a serious question. i am done with this effing community. good riddance.

I left some frozen tortellini out on the table instead of doing the normal thing and putting it in the freezer after buying it. So it sat out there for, oh, about 5 hours while I was at work. The bag wasn't opened since I had just bought it, but do I still have to throw it out? I'm so sad.

And a little bit ago I went and got a few of my (gel) nails fixed, and while the lady was using an electric file she clipped my finger and it bled a teeny bit. Chances of me contracting something unpleasant?

Thanks a ton!

1) I just read the instructions and warnings for the steroid ear drops I've been given for my ear infection
and It says "do not use this drug if you have Varicella (Chicken Pox).

I'm just getting over Chicken Pox, meaning that I shouldn't be using it, should I?

2) What the heck sort of interactions could it have? Really, even my old school pharmacist grandpa is confused. ha.

3) Why are walk-in clinic doctors so stupid?

Blind Dates

Have you ever been set up on a blind date by a relative? How'd that go?
(And if it doesn't work out - I get to chase her down and sit on her as payback, right?)

Intneral Organs

Do internal organs have nerves? I mean, to the point where you'd be able to feel it if someone actually touched them? I don't think so, since we're not aware of say.... our liver or other things working. But there are a few areas like the heart, stomach, and bladder that might have nerves.

I know people complain of heart pain. But if we had nerves in the heart, why can't we feel anything else with it? Why can't we feel it clogging up or the blood rushing through it?

That's just an example. Overall, the question is can internal organs can 'feel'.

If you're ever owned a home, how old were you when you bought it?

How long did it take you to decide on the house you bought?

Do you think owning a home is way more responsibility than renting?

How do you know you're ready to buy a house? Is it just a matter of having savings?

I think renting a house for a year (rather than an apt) is a good way to get a feel for it, but my fiance thinks this would be a waste and we should just buy something. What do you think?

1- Is your house generally quiet, or must there always be some sort of noise on? (A fan, a radio, etc.)

2- What would you feel about visiting someone's house and the music they were playing included not-so-subtle sex moaning sounds? :P

3- Do you, or have you ever, tried to keep rhythm with a song while getting down and dirty? How'd that go, if so?

4- What songs DON'T match up with the dancing of my icon?

1- Always must be some sound, aside from the battling of the cats.
2- I'd wonder if I got lost and was back at my house somehow.
3- Yes, though it was with really cute j-pop music and that's just weird, so nevermind. ;P
4- I have no idea. That girl knows how to work any song.

Disliking overly nice people

Have you ever felt turned off by someone because they act too nice to others? Not in the helping-others-a-lot-kind-of-way-because-that-person-is-a-lifelong-pal, but they smile too much at others (especially those they barely know) and seem to try to befriend others too much. If this rubs you the wrong way, why? What do you conclude about this type of person. I've always liked kindness in others, but prefer it when they don't show off about it, if that makes sense.

1. I'm Filipino, and my white friend sent me a link to this video of a stand-up comedian doing an act about getting her nails done in a nail salon with Vietnamese employees. It includes her impersonating the Vietnamese women. Is it weird that I'm a little offended? Am I just being too sensitive? (EDIT: Maybe not just the comedian's act, but also the fact that my whiter-than-white friend sent it to me? I'm probably just being ridiculous.)

2. The gas light in my car just went some point today. Should I get gas tomorrow morning before school (I have an 8 AM class), or just risk it until after class? (It takes me 12 minutes to get to school.)

3. I have a friend who will go to another bathroom in the house if the one near her room is out of toilet paper (rather than change the roll with the available toilet paper). What is a lazy thing that you do that actually requires more work?

Creatures of habit

When you go into a public restroom you use frequently (at school, at work, at the gym, etc) do you find yourself going into the same stall (to the same urinal?) each time?

In class (or when you were in class), do you sit in the same seat, or do you move around each day?

When walking to and from somewhere you walk frequently (school for example) do you tend to walk on the same side of the street/take the exact same route each day?


- I noticed this today; I always go into the same stall in the bathrooms in my school when there's no line.

- I sit in the same seat or at least the same area (within 2 or 3 seats of my normal seat).

- I walk the exact same route each day despite several alternatives. I even cross the street at all the same places every single day.
