Thank you all very very much :)

I took this and about 200 others while on vacation, a lot of them from the car while we were driving. I want to say it's the reflection of my fat thigh in the window but I got a few others with that fun feature and they don't look like this. No changes have been made except resizing.

I don't really think it's anything paranormal, so what the hell is it? Serious and non-serious replies welcome.

Long story, but right now I have two credit cards. I only use card A. Card A is entirely paid off, has been for a while, and is set to expire in a month or so. I only use card B now. When card A expires, will they automatically mail me a replacement card A, or does it just stop working end of story 'if you want another one sign up for it separately'? Because I don't want to renew card A.

I didn't even consider this until I was filling out the forms for card B and they had a box where you could check whether this was replacing an expiring card or not.

It's a VISA, if that matters.

1. I just finished reading My Sister's Keeper and absolutely loved it. When I was younger, I realized I liked reading medical-esque books.. I liked this series called "6 Months to Live" and also was affected by "It Happened To Nancy" (about HIV). And I can't help but admit that my favorite Babysitter's Club Book was when Stacy ate chocolate and was rushed to the ER because of her diabetes. That was hardcore drama right there.

Anyways, I am looking for books of this sort - ones that are interesting but tie in a bit of medical drama or something with them. Any suggestions?

2. What is the biggest obstacle you've ever overcome?
dancing and the syringe!

This might only (or mostly) apply inside the US.

You're driving along, vaguely country area (think cornfields, woods, meadows, whatever your local not-even-remotely-urban areas are). It's not the middle of the night, but it's dark enough you have your headlights on.
Oncoming car. As you approach eachother, other car flicks brights at you- When you already have your brights off.

What do you think?

Any different if the other car maybe flicks the lights twice?

And, where did you learn to drive?

Reptile owners

Alright, I hope this doesn't sound stupid. I have a 9 year old corn snake. He eats pre-killed frozen mice that I thaw and drop in his tank. Normally, he eats them immediately. He has never NOT eaten them. I feed him once every 10 days. I fed him a mouse earlier this evening, it's been a couple of hours and he still hasn't eaten it. I know that they may not eat during a shed, and he could be in the early stages but I can't really tell. If he doesn't eat soon, and there's no sign of a shed I'll take him to the vet obviously. What do I do in the mean time? Do I wait a day or two and try again?

i have itunes. and i have limewire. i have all my music on limewire. it comes up in the "shared" music section on itunes. (i have to delete limewire from my computer because the school i'll be living at next month checks our computers first and makes sure we dont have any file-sharing programs.) how do i get all my music into my itunes library? and then how do i get it onto my ipod?

Basically I was trying to make a list of small things I'm not comfortable with that I could do over the summer, in hopes that doing them would in some way benefit me. I'm having trouble making a sizable list. I know there are a ton that I just can't think of until I encounter them.

In a few months I'll be going alone to a pricey week-long event. I'm considering cutting expenses by sharing a hotel room with someone else who's going to the same event. It would be someone I've never met before, just a fellow frugal party-lover. There would be no expectation that we'd spend time with each other outside of the room, but we'd hopefully like each other well enough to enjoy each other's company while in the room together.

Have any of you done this? How did it go? Was it weird sleeping in the same room with a stranger? Was it hard to find someone?

1. My friend who works in a hotel Keira Knightley stayed in when filming Pride & Predjudice cleaned her room and found traces of cocaine on the tables... you could assume she was taking it or was at least okay with people around her taking it. I know it used to be rife throughout the A list circuit, but now what with the clean living eco friendly vibe hollywood is trying to give off...
Do you suppose many hollywood celebrities use class A's that we aren't aware of?

2. Have you ever been in a situation where you had a friend confess they like you as more than a friend, and you had to turn them down? What was the story?

3. Do you spend an unhealthy amount of time thinking about someone?

4. Do you have any friends who you are insecure because they think they're unattractive, unfortuntely you can't reassure them because as much as you love them.. they are.

1. Eh, I guess so. It really surprised me about KK actually.

2. Yeah, it's all awkward now. I don't want to see him at all incase he gets the wrong idea. This isn't one of those crushes you sometimes develop on your friends apparently. This is "I am in love with you, i've always adored you. I've always pictured us ending up together"
So.. how can I go back to being friends, knowing he's never really wanted me as his friend?

3. Yes. My boy in Aus. Like ALL the time. I can't stop. It's frustrating me immensely. rawr.

4. Yes. Oh I love this one girl to bits but she's so down on herself. It's not like I can say 'Don't worry Elle, it's what's on the inside that counts' because that would be like agreeing with her... and I can't say 'but you're gorgeous' because that would be lying...

As I was driving to work this morning, the older guy in the van behind me kept flashing his lights at me, and then when I turned left at a side street, he beeped his horn at me.

I was going the proper speed limit and signalled properly and all that jazz. There were no cops (which wouldn't make sense since he was BEHIND me). I merged correctly onto the highway and there was plenty of space between us.

What do you think his problem was? Do you think he liked my liberal bumperstickers? Hated them? Didn't like that I was talking on my cell phone? (it's legal in my state)

Why is my left nostril stuffed up?

Traffic Tickets.

I got pulled over on the way to work today, for the first time ever, causing me to be late to work (after I called in on Friday). What sucks is that I got a ticket for an honest mistake*, not something I did intentionally, like speed, which I do all the time. =(

1. Does your Monday suck already? What time is it?

*There's only one way to get around the construction on my way to work, and they just put in a "no left turn" sign at the road I'd turn left on to avoid the construction. I totally didn't see it, as I've lived in this area my entire life and have been turning left onto that road for months, and the cop was sitting right there in a parking lot off of the road I turned left onto, waiting for some innocent commuter to not notice the major change in their daily route. At least he gave me a break and didn't give me the 3 points on my license. Although, a warning would have been nice, as (besides speeding) I tend to be a very cautious, "goody-two-shoes" kind of driver.

2. Wanna guess how much my ticket is going to be for "impeding traffic?"

3. If you've ever received a traffic ticket, what was it for?

4. If you've received more than one, what was the highest amount you've had to pay, and what was the offense?

5. Any other horrible crimes you've committed that you'd like to get off your chest?

6. Why do some people insist on bringing their disobedient/un-socialized dogs to festivals, then get really angry when it jumps up on people, or doesn't want to walk on its leash, etc.?

BJs vs Ciggs

Hey TQC;

it has been brought to my attention that BJs can increase the risk of throat cancer more than smoking. ..and all this time i've been avoiding smoking as to lengthen my lifespan. i guess i shouldnt be dating boys.

so, TQC, any thoughts? feedback? is your behavior worth potential risks? after reading the article will you change your smoking/BJ habits?

Parking near my school is a fucking nightmare, so I took the first spot I found. There were other cars on the street, no signs saying I couldn't park, and there was just enough room. I felt so lucky, until I noticed there was a telephone pole lying in the street flush with the curb. Now, in my city it's not uncommon for people to put shit in the street to "save" parking spots, but I don't think this is that.

Do you think this was legit? Am I gonna get towed in North Philly? Am I gonna get a whopping parking ticket?

9:31 AM 5/20/07 · The problem with most zombie movies is that everyone makes the same basic mistake early on and by the time what should've been obvious dawns on them they're facing off with a zillion enemies instead of just the one.

Most people with a gun tend to aim for the main trunk of the body. For some really odd reason it never occurs to anyone to shoot a body in the head first.

Also!  Not a question, but in my German class we watched Europa Europa.  We saw Solly get circumsised after he was born (weird to watch).  Then, when he was pretending to be a German during WW2 and he wanted to hook up with the crazy Nazi girl, he tried to UN circumsise himself with a safety pin!  The whole class let out a big "WTF?!"  It was really gross.

1. What's a quick and simple recipe I can do with fresh tilapia fillets?

2. Are there too many computer animated movies lately? It was all new and shiny when Toy Story came out, and Shrek was cool, but now the novelty has worn off and it's just annoying and tacky and cheap, IMO.

3. What artistic thing have you made or done recently? Pics plz, if available.

1. Let's say you often see a specific classmate or co-worker staring at your crotch area, and from what you can tell there's never anything out of the ordinary going on (You didn't spill anything, no holes, the person's eyes are not at level with your crotch, and if you're a guy, you're not sporting anything extra). How would that make you feel and would you say/do anything about it?

2. Let's say you're not seeing anyone and someone who you are not interested in but think may be interested in you asks if you have a boyfriend/girlfriend. Would you say no or lie to try to avoid them possibly asking you out?

For the past 4 years I have been dying my hair with non-ammonia dye.
There is one spot of my hair that the dye has NEVER taken to. Meaning, it dyes ALL of my hair except for this one circle spot by my forehead, which stays my natural color (I guess, it's been awhile, don't really remember).

It's not the whole strand of hair though, only about an inch from the scalp. So it's like an inch in diameter and an inch in height? Does that make sense?

ANYWAY. My question: what's up with that? Why won't this one spot dye??

What is a cool retail job I could get this summer? What was the coolest summer job you ever had?

I am 22 years old. I have had 2 jobs, both in an office. I am sort of shy. Would I survive in retail?

We have a lot of ants at our house.

I noticed recently that they keep crawling into the cordless phone - I thought they were just crawling around there, until today. I noticed the LCD screen seemed a bit dark on one side. I thought, since it's an old phone, "oh, the light's just going out."

Except - I just realized, upon closer examination - it's ants. A big clump of ants darkening half of the lcd screen, and a few stray ones.

Can we say EWWWW??

Question is: Have any of you ever seen anything like this?

What the hell???

My uncle's fish recently died after my mother claimed she accidentally poured clear Kool-Aid into the tank instead of water. The fish died. But would Kool-Aid really make the fish tank look like this?

1. Have you ever seen a remade movie that you liked as much, or more, than the original?

2. What remade movies do you hate?

3. What do you think about Cannibal Holocaust being remade?

1. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Cape Fear (1991)

2. Planet of the Apes (2001), The Hills Have Eyes (2006)

3. Possibly the worst idea for a remake I have ever seen. I thought it was a joke, but I guess it is actually being remade :/

Would you ever let a poor, mostly-homeless (at the time they were being evicted from a hotel they'd lived in for a month, because they couldn't pay rent anymore) family of six (children rage in age from 3 to 14) move into your house short term? And, if it came down to it, would you extend the time you let them stay? Also, let's say your mother is working-class and your 17-18 year old brother is Autistic/ADHD.

1.Do you think it's okay to like a song with racist/generally offensive lyrics?

2. If someone recommended a song to you with offensive lyrics would you assume they endorsed these lyrics, so to speak?

3. Do you judge a song by its lyrics?

4. If you realised a song you really liked had racist/homophobic/something you don't agree with lyrics would you still like/listen to the song?

Aas can be seen from the following Midrash (Tanchuma Lech Lecha 20): "...Yehoyakim stretched his foreskin as it is said (II Chronicles 36:8) And the rest of Yehoyakim's matters and his abominations that he did and that was found upon him.... What was found upon him? That he stretched his foreskin."

Can someone explain?

1. Why would someone throw away a home run ball that they had caught? What if the player who hit it became super famous in later years?

2. What are your favorite type of M&M's?

3. What should I pretend I have to do tomorrow to get out of meeting with the "business partner" of a "friend?" I really don't feel like wasting my money investing in their "business."

Insurance Fraud

So... I got the bill from when my son was born. He's uncircumsized. The hospital charged the insurance company for a circumcision.
Insurance fraud?? y/n

I know it's "mandatory" that they charge if for every boy birth, but ummm... that's $250 that a doctor was paid for something that didn't happen!

1. How do you feel about large age gaps when dating? Does the acceptable age gap get larger as you get older?

2. I have a 17 year old friend who was up until yesterday dating a 13 year old. I enjoyed making fun of him, after he ignored my honest attempt to convince him it was… not good. Today I made a joke about it, and he yelled “I broke up with her yesterday, you bitch!” Did he have the right to get mad? (Keep in mind I tease all of my friends, so it wasn’t anything unusual.)

3. Do you like your body?

4. Do you like your parents?

5. How many internet windows do you generally have open?

6. What do you do if someone says “I love you” when you’re dating, but you don’t think you’re quite to that point? And if you have issues with saying it?

EDIT: I forgot my answers.

1. I think one or two years is reasonable for younger people, and it gets much bigger as you get older.

2. I guess, but maybe not quite so much.

3. Sometimes.

4. Yeah.

5. Two.

6. Oy.

Me - I freakin graduated and raked in over $1000 in monetary gifts. So that was super awesome to me!

Thanks in advance!!

work / uni / overlords / ghostbusters

1. I have a trial work day at a small office tomorrow (Tuesday). If they like me, they'll keep me. However, I am expecting a call on Wednesday from a store job that I also applied for and would rather like. If the office people want me, do I say 'yeah, sure, put me on the payroll' or do I say 'I am waiting to see about another job'. How do I get around this pickle of a situation?

2. Do Americans or non-Australians in general use the word 'uni' (in place of the word university) at all? If you do, where are you from? I have heard an odd rumour that Americans don't really use the word.

3. I constantly use the phrase "I for one welcome our _______ overlords", because I saw it on the Simpsons. (According to wikipedia, this is where the phrase originated.) What are your favourite variations?

4. I have been told that I am completely weird and insane because I am 23 and have gone my entire lifetime without ever having watched ghostbusters 2. Am I missing out? Is the film a paragon of greatness? Should I watch it? I trust tqc people to tell me the truth of the situation.

big boob swimsuits.

I saw some girls posting some nice higher end swimsuits here a couple of weeks ago. they were for plus size/ women with larger breasts. I forgot to give my wife the link. Can someone re post it? I think it's the one from People Magazine or US.


query about a quote

"Society must be cleansed of elements which represent its own death."

Is that really a quote by Hitler, or did they make that up for "The Life of David Gale"?

Do you agree with the quote? If no, would you agree with it if Hitler hadn't said it?

I'm looking for books or TV shows featuring religious characters. I don't want something where the focus of the story is getting a religious message across, just a normal story where some of the main characters just happen to be religious. Can anyone make any recommendations?

Dismembered genitals

Ok, so I was thinking of an alternate reality. In this reality, everyone can have various dismembered body parts that float in the air and follow them around. It's considered a cultural norm.

So, what would you do if you could have your own? It doesn't have to be genitals, but those would be extra funny.

I'd get a giant, dismembered floating penis. I'd use it sort of like a tether ball and punch it so that it swings and hits someone in the eye.
