Women, do you know "yes, I'm ready/want to have sex with this particular person at this particular time" before you're in the situation where it happens?

Men, do you know that before you're in that situation?

Your SO buys you a marquise diamond solitaire ring for your birthday just like this one...

Its a nice ring, but its not really your style... It just doesn't fit your taste.

Do you feel safe where you live?

If you live in a high-crime area, how do you feel about that?

I'm asking because my city (Philadelphia) is steadily on track to becoming the most violent city in the US. In fact, a story about it made CNN's frontpage this morning. Despite all this, I still feel quite safe in my neighborhood. A couple blocks North or East is another story, but as far as things go I feel safe here. I've lived here my entire life.

What's the worst place you have ever lived?

I lived in a hotel room with three other girls for two months while our apartment was being built. I slept in a queen size bed with one of my roommates but I didn't quite have it as bad as my roommate that slept on the padded window sill above the air conditioner. We didn't have a home cooked meal for two months. We had a mini fridge and a sink. (And this was not even a hotel with a pool. Crappy!)

Semi-soft-solid Warm Food

My boyfriend had his wisdom teeth out about a week ago.  He can't have seeds, nuts, chips, popcorn or anything hard that might get stuck in the gums for a month.  He can eat semi-soft food like mashed potatoes, french fries, baked beans, noodles, cheese sandwiches.  He's getting pretty bored with the variety and selection.  He wants real food.  We're stumped for ideas of real food that he can manage eating, so . . . . .

Can anyone suggest any good tasting foods that he might be able to eat that I can make for him?

when was the last time you got in a fight with one of your siblings? what was the fight over? did anybody win?

it was with my older sister. she thinks i'm a failure and that i'm purposely trying to fail. sooo, she broke my door and stood in front of it proclaiming if i left she'd knock me out. i walked out, we brawled in the hallway. i got thrown against a bookcase. i don't really know where i punched her, but i did! i now have a giant bruise on my under-arm. i don't think either of us won. i don't really care who did, i just think her reasons were bullshiat.

I have had a best friend for 10 years. We’ve gone to college, had other friends, been through good times and bad. Recently my sister and I have been hanging out with a new friend we’ve meet out dancing. She lives close to us and we hang out a lot. Our other friend seems to be annoyed by this and fearful that this other person is going to take us away from her. Which is extremely immature thinking for her age. She is jealous and snappy towards this person and has told me outright that she does not like her. The tension between the two is driving me crazy, I don’t know what to do. Any suggestions?

Tattoo questions! No, I don't want anyone to design one for me. Blech. I've wanted a tattoo since I was 12 years old (HAHAHA) and now, half a life later, I'm going to actually get one. I'm so nervous, hah! D: So, to stop me from freaking out and waiting another decade+ to do this, I come bearing my queries. :P Some/none of these may actually influence me, but whatever.

1- Where are the most and least (generally) painful places to get a tattoo?
2- Would you ever get a tattoo that purposely made fun of yourself? (To clarify, it'd still mean something to me. I just have a horrible sense of humour and hate myself to a limit. ;P Light-hearted poking fun.)

hypothetical situation based upon (unfortunately) a very true one.

you are a young woman, working at a bookstore.  you are assisting a middle-aged, white male customer. while helping him, he asks "are you expecting?" (as in, are you pregnant)

you are NOT pregnant.

how would you respond? what would you say? keep in mind, your co-worker is nearby and saying "yes I am" might mean that she would hear and then tell everyone else because gossip travels FAST. would you say yes so the customer doesn't feel like a jerk? or would you get offended and upset and say no?

... what should I do to prevent it from happening again? get a new wardrobe? starve myself so I don't look fat? [joking!] :(

actually, if this has happened to any of you, feel free to tell me what you did at the time.

1. How much does a ride in an ambulance (for and emergency, not joyriding :D ) cost where you come from? Is it covered if you have insurance?

2. Do you have medical insurance or do you have great public health care?

3. Have you ever had to call 999 or 911 or 000 or the emergency number in your country? Why? What happened?

I fell the other week in a shopping center in Hong Kong. Gashed my knee open. The mall admin called the EMTs and I was taken to Prince of Wales hospital via ambulance. 6 stitches and 3 types of pain meds later, I am sent home. The shopping center sent one of their customer service people to stay with me at the hospital all afternoon and paid for me to go home in a taxi. I was shocked that the girl stayed with me all day. Maybe they thought I would sue them...

Yesterday, I went back to the hospital to pay my bill. When the accident happened, I did not have my HK ID Card, so I would have been charged as a non-resident, which would be more money. I took my ID card, my hospital papers and information to the accounts people. He scans it all, makes a couple of copies and charges me $100 HK. I asked a friend if I should be waiting for a bill from the Ambulance and she said it's all covered by your hospital fee!!!

$100HK = $12.75 USD = $14 CDN = $15.80 AUD = 6.50 Quid = 1550 Yen = 9.50 Euro...oh I could do this all day....Sorry if I missed your country.

$100 HK!!! That's it. Nothing more. I love this place. Don't love that I have 6 stitches and will have a nasty angry scar on my knee, but I do love their public health system.

This has happened before, so I know it's some kind of protective measure. I'm trying to get a screencap from a video in a DivX player, and when I print screen, all I get is a big black space where the image appears in the player. Anyone know how to get around this?


I know this sounds like a stupid question....seems the whole world is sensitive about these two issues. I must have missed the train here. But, 

1. Why is everyone so offended and/or ashamed of getting "old". Why is age this horrific thing? I don't mean to sound bad, but I really just don't understand why it's so awful - but it seems to be a universal outcry - WOE IS ME, I'M GETTING OLD!

2. This second one is more understandable but still I don't understand the shock and anger towards it. This was inspired by the question about "expecting" - and I saw that a majority of responders were all "How rude! He should be ashamed, etc etc." I mean, some people have tact, some don't; mistakes happen. I suppose if someone said that to me and I wasn't expecting, it really wouldn't bother me, I'd just laugh it off and make conversation with them if they were interesting.

SO, as pointed out by a darling TQC'er, I never actually asked a question here. :P My soap box missed the question mark - well put. So my question is why is it so atrociously rude for someone to mistakenly ask when a woman she is due? I GET why it is not a great thing - but to take such offense...I dunno, there are much worse things in the world is all. Um...seems I can't help my soap box here, lol.

hello lion-o


I was at the bar the other night, and saw a girl with tons of tattoos (covering her entire back as well as both arms to about half sleeves.. as well as a few on her chest) I have no problem with the amount of tattoos... but she looked like she went into a tattoo shop, opened the flash book, and said "I want one of everything!"

Maybe I am completely off base, but isn't it kind of pointless to spent the time/money to get a bunch of tattoos if they're just going to be a pile of generic flash?

eta: I just wanna add that I am not saying that flash tattoo art can't have meaning... I just think there is a time and a place for it. It's hard for me to believe that this girl's tattoos were thought out and had meaning to her because they were extremely generic, and the entire lot had no cohesiveness to it what so ever. I would expect there to be an overall neatness/planning to them if she had thought things out and each piece meant something to her.. but maybe I am expecting too much and this is why I don't have any tattoos yet, because I am too picky. lol

2. TL;DR, but here we go: This summer I'll be volunteering at a summer camp for teenagers, where we do 2 hour workshops with things like poetry or improv games or art or whatever... I plan to do one on film, where we can just shoot a short little video together and later I'll edit it into something coherent in time for the talent show. But I know that collectively coming up with a plot can eat up a lot of our time if we only have 2 hours to write and shoot the whole thing! So I'm thinking of coming with some pre-prepared but like open-ended ideas to help the campers come up with their own stories, something that gives us some structure to work with but doesn't make them feel like I'm bossing it all around, you know? So, do you have any ideas or recommendations as to how to run the workshop, how to bring suggestions/ideas/structure/whatever? Also it doesn't have to be narrative film-- we could do a 4 minute documentary or music video or anything...

3. If you could become a recurring character on any television show-- the character, not the actor portraying it-- which would you pick?

I'm currently in the middle of choosing classes for next year (I'm a rising sophomore), and I'm using a combination of what classes actually fit my schedule, what actually interests me, and looking up professor reviews online.

Does anyone not have an old, childhood friend?

I feel like there is something wrong with me because I don't have any close, childhood friends. I had friends in elementary school, but often went from friend to friend and it has never lasted like from kindergarten to now. Since I started high school in a new town, I haven't talked to anyone I knew from elementary school to middle school. 

Since freshman year of high school, I got into a group. But since the end of junior year to senior year, I've drifted away from the group because people in this group are so cliquey. I have random friends around school and don't consider myself as part of my high school group anymore. I like to see my random friends more than my "immediate" group, but I don't think we will really last that long after I leave high school, which is in less than a month. 

(Actually, I started 8th grade in a new middle school and got into a group, but I drifted away from that group into a new one in high school. And now I'm drifting away from the most current group, also)

I feel like I'm unable to keep long-term friendships. That I always seem to drift away from people from getting really idealistic of people. Any honest criticism, words of encouragement, or anything is welcomed. I'm starting to lose hope that I will ever form long-lasting friendships.

When you were little, would you find it "weird" that your principal had a daughter in college?

I worked at my dad'd Family Fun Night, running the cake walk.  These little girls (5th grade) stared at me for, it seemed, about 5 minutes after I said "Oh, I'm Mr. Fa---'s daughter" and called me weird D:

A good friend of mine is out of town until Tuesday. He left me his key to collect his mail and feed his fish. I'm trying to think of a cheap and easily clean-up-able prank to play on him via his apartment. Something like filling his apartment with packing peanuts, but of course that would be way too expensive. Maybe blow up lots of balloons and wait for him to say, "This is me being serious!"

But seriously, TQC, do you have any ideas?

Thank you for your great suggestions on this post:

Now, I have decided on a teardrop for Water, a cloud for Air, and a leaf for Earth.

Do you know of any art communities that would be willing to design these for me?

Would YOU be willing to design them?

I want the symbol in black, in front of the representative image.  The tats are small, about an inch square, so can't have TOO much detail.

Where can I go to ask this?

My mom told me about this supposed 'commonly accepted dating age calculator.' Basically, the formula is (your age/2+7), and the answer you get is the lowest possible age your date/SO should be.

Do you find this to be as ridiculous as I do, or do you think it's a good guideline to follow? Did anybody else know of this thing's existence, or am I the only one who was apparently never in the know?

I love comics, and I would really like to get a couple comic book related t-shirts like these. However, the selection for girls is always pretty slim (and I'm just not that into Supergirl). I'm going to get one of the regular t-shirts, but I would like a way to make it a bit more feminine.

Can you give me some ideas to modify a regular t-shirt to make it more feminine, without cutting into the logos in the middle? Sewing is not a problem.
Fatal Curiosity II

Things I don't get, volume bazillion

This will probably make me seem like an utter idiot, but bear with me. This has been befuddling me since whenever this little fad (and I think fad is the right word here) reached the general populous.

Ok, brace yourself.

What is it about Scientology that people hate so much, anyway?

*Dodges brick* There, I said it.

I know it's the psychiatry thing for a lot of people, but I don't think that faction is large enough to account for the fact that it is basically an internet meme. And isn't just as easy to just... Not be a Scientologist if you want to take medication?

I guess it's also an example of the "no one likes a crazy cult" mentality, but there have been crazier cults that didn't get so much mocking. Lots of religions and religious leaders were corrupt or just loopy, but they basically seem to get ignored.

Ok, so there you have it.

For the record, I'm not a pro-Scientology person. I'm... Neutral, I guess. If you must drag an opinion out of me, I guess just find it somewhat amusing. But I think that about a lot of religious practices.

Do you find that the questions in here get more random stoopider on the weekends? I fear for all the fucking tqc'ers out there that don't have a life on Friday night because the stoopidity is rampant tonight. Yes, I realize that I am here in this community hey! on a Friday night! myself but I JUST GOT HERE after a night of other stuff and O/M/FUCKING/G.!1!

And here's a random picture of my dinner tonight because that makes me 'edgy'. But wait, let's make this into another inane question -
ummm... let's see...

Oh I know, do you like seafood? Do you like drunken seafood because that would make me more rad and I can be one of the 'cool' tqc'ers.

Yay, first time poster. -Wave-

For the people who might specifically know:

Does anyone know of any worshops/writing groups/classes for unpublished/"unknown" writers in Connecticut? Specifically in like...the Glastonbury/Manchester/Hebron/Salem/general area of those towns. I'd really like to find something that's open to (genre) writers around my age (I'm 21). (Edit: forgot to mention that I'm looking for writing groups off of the 'net to find. I've joined plenty of them online but would really like to find an offline group.)

And for anyone who doesn't know (or does know and feels like answering):

1. Who put the bop in the bop shabop? (SILLY ANSWERS ARE AWESOME!)

2. Are you looking forward to the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie that's coming out, or are you expecting to be disappointed because of things they've screwed up in previous movies?

3. Do you usually end up liking movies that are based on books, or do you end up hating them? Or does it depend on the book(s)?

Edit: Fourth question for those who aren't Harry Potter fans/haven't seen/read the movies/books:

What movies are you looking forward to the most that are coming out this summer/fall/winter?

Does anyone here sleep COMPLETELY under the covers here? Like, face completely underneath a sheet/blanket and all?

My boyfriend does this, even in the dead of summer with no AC. I don't get it... I can't breathe like that!

Have you ever slept through something that most people would have been woken up by (big earthquake...something...else... I don't know you tell me)?

Brought up by this question, because I'm really curious now:

If you are male, why would a decrease in your seminal fluid bother you enough to not take male birth control (if it were available)? Your orgasm would be unaffected in every other way, for the purposes of this question.

I find it a very interesting how many guys said they wouldn't take it if it meant a reduction in semen, yet how many women put up with far worse side effects to be protected, many things which are far worse than a simple reduction of a bodily fluid.

So a second question:

Ladies, if there were a male birth control pill/patch/what-have-you available, and the only side effect were a decrease in his semen, and he refused to take it, and insisted you go on or stay on birth control where you had a lot more unpleasant side effects, would you be angry/resentful at him?

exchanging cell phones

Have you ever returned/exchanged a cell phone?

I bought a Samsung M610 yesterday, but I'm feeling a little iffy about it. With Sprint, I have a 14-day satisfaction guarantee to return it or exchange it for another phone. The other phone I was considering was the Sanyo Katana. In addition to the first question I asked...

2. Do you feel bad returning cell phones after a week or two of use if you just don't like it?
3. If any of you own a Sanyo Katana, do you like it? What don't you like about it?

ear piercings

I was thinking about getting my ears pierced again. (I only have one hole now)

I wanted to get a Tragus piercing. I have a few questions:

1.) How bad does it hurt? (the obvious first)
2.) How long does it take to heal?
3.) If you had a tragus piercing and took it out, does it leave a visible scar?
4.) Are you aware of any health risks a piercing of this type my cause?

thanks guys!

Just one question, essentially, but it'd be easier to get the answer if I split it up into three questions. :P

1. Are you a boy or a girl?
2. Are you straight, gay or bi?
3. Would you rather have your SO--current or hypothetical--dump you for a girl or a boy?

I'm trying to find an old sig script that was really popular about a year ago. It looked sort of like this:

and it was almost completely customizable, you could change colors and fonts, number of recent tracks to show, all that great stuff. It was a script that you downloaded and installed on your own server. Can anyone help? D:


1) Do you have a daily routine? If so, Ever get sick of the same routine?

In a way yes, and I do, it gets boring and I get sick and tired of talking and seeing the same old people...It's the same thing everyday and it just gets boring...(I'm in highschool, so of course you go to the same places everyday at the same time)

2) Do you have any ideas to make things more interesting?

3) How can a person become more outgoing and meet new people?

I know they say go join clubs and try talking to different people, but how?

4) Say that you had a fight with your friend and she said and did some mean things to you, and you're not friends with her anymore. Say that she is also friends with alot of your friends so it can be kinda awkward or hard when all of you want to hang out. Also, it may be hard because this person involved your friends in this brawl and you can't trust alot of your "friends" anymore. This girl and you both agreed that you are aquaintances, but when you hang out with the friends you're both friends with, won't it be a little awkward? Is there a way to just get past this and keep it cool?

As you can tell, I had to deal with bullshit like this. I try to be a nice person and stay away from girl drama. (I hate that immature horse shit anyways) It seemed that this girl and I had it coming because we are so alike and different at the same time. The little stuff she did would annoy me. She said she was "giving me a taste of my own medicine" and etc. I mean who does she think she is? It just annoys me and she hurt me. My mom was there for me through the whole thing and she is pissed. This girl is being a hypocrite. (She said I was bitchy and was trying to give me a "taste of my own medicine". So it caused a whole thing. My TRUE friends said I wasn't bitchy.) I could say more and go on and on, but the bottom line is, the whole thing annoys me and is catty. I hate this high school bull shit. I am sick of it...any advice?

What do you want to do before you die? And how will you achieve it?

I want to see the world. And properly, not just a three day, stay in the resort style holiday. And i'm going to achieve it, even if I end up getting wolf-creeked, by saving up for a year, then getting a plane ticket and jumping onto the first flight available to whatever destination I can get.

Sure, maybe it's suicidal, but you only live once.

on the show "scrubs" do they ever tell you the story about that dead stuffed dog they have (i think his name is rowdy)? i've only started watching it recently, and i've seen a lot of the reruns, but it seems like it was always just there.
