I have a boy kitty who every night walks around the house making this awful meow. It's loud, long, and at the end of the meow it almost sounds like he's punctuating with a question mark. I dunno if that makes sense, lol. He's a healthy indoor kitty, has been since he was a lil kitten (he's now about 10 or 11 months old, a rescue so I'm not completely sure on the age) Anyway...I wish I could record him doing it so you can see what I mean
1. Does anyone here have a cat that does this?
2. Why do they do that?
So it's officially my sweet sixteen. How should I celebrate?
Why is it when I hike or run (treadmill or otherwise) the ends of my fingers feel weird? They get sort of numb and a little tingly and fat-feeling?
How many of you can type a coherent sentence with your nose?
eta - i typed this with m noe.
There's a tornado warning for my area. Should I continue to play around on the Internet or seek shelter immediately?
What's the weather like where you are?

Why aren't you chatting with us in AIM? Is it because we have cooties?
So far we have discussed hemorrhoids, anal fissures, beating up class mates, macros, and hands.
Just invite yourself to "thequestionclub".
For those of you who tag your journal entries, what's your biggest tag?
I saw a spider today. It was about the size of the nail on your thumb, furry, and had a white dot on the top of its butt. I live in upstate NY, but I've never seen a spider like this one before. Any ideas? Post pics of possible candidates so I can tell.
Before you got your period for the first time, were you looking forward to it?
Yes. The excitement quickly wore off though.
Did you ever worry that you were never going to get it?
Yes, I was always worried about that.
Which do you prefer and why? What about other "P.C. terms" referring to groups of people? I prefer Native American, because "Indian" refers to someone from India and there's no other term for them. Besides, it would be inane to create a second term for Indians.
Mostly I don't use "P.C." terms unless there's a practical reason or a strong historical prejudice behind it, like above. I do occasionally use ones like "African American" though in contexts where it's semi-required and in contexts where their heritage is of particular issue (e.g. historical analysis, cultural studies, linguistic studies, etc).
I want to make a playlist full of summer-y type songs.
What are some of your favorite songs that have to do with summer?
How can I change my IP address?
I've got something in the back of my throat irritating me. I figured it was a tonsil stone, went and looked in the mirror, irrigated and used a q-tip, I'm convinced there's nothing back there. WTF else could it be? It's way in the back of my mouth, right next to my back tooth, almost under my tongue. It's driving me nuts, it kept me awake for hours last night. :( It just started about two nights ago, too. Out of nowhere. Argh. :(
I have an interview on Monday for a part-time job at Barnes and Noble. I am really excited because this is the perfect job for summer and I've always wanted to work in a bookshop. Do any of you work there and remember how your interview went? Any tips?
Thank you. :-)
Yesterday I saw the movie 'Bug' and it was just...theee worst movie I've seen in a long time. My friend and I walked out. (We weren't the only ones).
What was the last movie that made you walk out? Or made you shut the movie off (if you rented it).
If you were being attacked by someone and had no weapon, what area of the body would you go for first to try and get away?

I'm watching grounded for life right now and the episode is the one about the father finding out his daughter had lost her virginity and has been having sex. Now the mother has known and is okay with it.
My question to you is would you be the "your not dating til your 18" parent, or the sex talk at age 5 parent? How do you handle the situation? what age do you think would be an appropriate age for your daughter? Are you a male or woman?
1) Is there a way to find someone online if you don't know their last name? I know first name, town he lives in, that he works with computers, and who he's dating.
2) Assuming you could get that information, would you tell the person that the person he is dating is cheating on him with multiple people behind his back? This is a woman I've known for years and, until I discovered how totally nasty she was, considered a friend. I know she's cheated on him at least 10 times with 6 different men. Unfortunately, all I have is his first name, so I can't think of a way to get in touch with him.
in your opinion, could an entree still be called "vegetarian" if it included fish?
if you saw the movie stranger than fiction, what did you think?
do you think it's fair to assume harold did other things with his life besides work/eating/sleeping? would you assume his life was pointless before he met anna pascale (the baker) and hearing the narration? (meaning, before the movie starts)?
If you have your driver's license, how old were you when you got it?
1. Do you play the Sims or The Sims 2?
2. If so, what's your favorite expansion pack for them?

What do you do to free up memory on your computer?
Any tips on how to make space?
I just recently deleted a lot of pictures and some videos, but i still am using 85% of my memory (at least according to the memory widget).
So my Mom wants to buy something off Ebay, but her credit card expired on Paypal. I'm trying to update it, but each time I try it says "This credit card is already registered in your PayPal account." That's fucking great, but it won't let me use it. Then I tried entering another credit card of hers, and it said the exact same thing.
If I understand this correctly, Paypal has both cards stored, but will not let me use them. Instead, it constantly takes me to a "Add Funding Source" page.
Um... help? :-\
1. How big a priority is/was getting married to you?
2. How much of a ceremony do you want to do/did you do?
2a. If you did do a ceremony, how did it go? Was it worth it?
2b. If you plan to do a ceremony, how are you funding it?
3. What, if anything, would cause you to postpone or reschedule your wedding?
(inspired by the man with TB and others who won't let anything interfere with their wedding plans)
Are hard-core, deeply fundamental muslims allowed to use toilet paper? If not, what do they use when they use the bathroom?
There's a movie I'm thinking of, it's anime, and in the beginning the girl is moving or something like that. Her parents get turned into pigs because they eat so much and she has to work for this lady who has this fat baby and is really big compared to everyone else... It was out a couple of years ago. This big black thing follows her around and it looks like a creepy shadow.
Anyone know the name of it?
This poor little blue bird keeps incessantly trying to fly through my glass door in the back. I've heard him smacking into it almost every minute since I got home three hours ago. I tried putting up a dark sheet so he would see that there's something there but he kept on.
How do I make him stop?
Why has he not died yet?
Family reunion tomorrow. Outside. It's going to be hot. About 90F + humidity in direct sunlight for a few hours. I have two possible outfits:
Thicker tank top + denim shorts
Light tank top + Long but flowy skirt
Which would last longer, IYO?
Do you think of questions and then think "Oh, I should post this on TQC" or do you think "Oh, I should come up with a question to post on TQC?"
If you entered an online social gathering and everyone asked you to post up nudepix, would you? Will you?
If there were two twins (so their faces are the same) would you pick the one who was slightly over weight or slighty under weight?
EDIT: If there were two identical twins (so their faces are the same) would you pick (or find more attractive) the one who was slightly over weight or slighty under weight?
Since my parents seem to make a habit out of throwing me out of their house whenever we don't get along, I'm moving in with my boyfriend.
What should I know? What should I buy? Any advice?
I just found out my ex (also first love) is getting married to someone else.
How did you find out and deal with it when your first love got engaged/married to someone else?
I have comprehensive exams next week. Six sciences and six arts. I cannot graduate if I don't pass these with at least a 75%, and I STILL know jackshit about the human heart.
I have been flash-carding out the ass, but I could still use some extra help. If you've had to take a lot of science, what sort of mnemonic devices or the like did you use to learn whatever you needed to learn? Things like 'On Old Olympus Towering Tops...' for the cranial nerves and whatnot. My biggest problem is with Anatomy. Anything you can suggest would be a great help. I'll even accept corny jokes about how you'd love to come over and give me 'practical' lessons.
I'm considering going back to school for post secondary. I graduated as a mature student for high school in 2004 (only needed 2 credits, so it wasn't bad bad) and most of my credits are in normal high school many years earlier.
I like a couple subjects in post and not sure what i should take....what do ya guys think sounds more interesting...
Tourism and Travel-Flight Services Option (2yr course at college) and i need no more upgrading, just direct entry. Its around $4-$8k/yr (i THINK!)
A collaborative BScN (nursing) at a GREAT university BUT i would need to get some more high school credits in 11 or 12 Math Uni Prep, 12 Biology (which i failed 3 times and one of which i dropped out of), 12 Chemistry, 12 Physics and upgrade on my grade 12 Uni prep english (i have a 65% and i would rather a 75%). Its 4yrs and around $8k/yr.
I am leaning towards the nursing, I dunno though. I also like the Police Foundations course but i have 60% hearing loss in my left ear and i doubt i'd get hired as a cop cause of that....plus i am 100Lbs soaking wet and 5'4" LMAO!!
Money is tight so I can't waste my time or do an Undecided Major, I like adventure and hard work though....
So what would you pick? What sounds more fun....cool...??
so I have a Canon PowerShot SD600 camera.
I cannot find my charger and I'm going downtown with my friends in 2 hours. My camera is completely out of battery, and my charger is SOMEWHERE. It's making me so mad.
What should I do?
ETA - where would I be able to pick up a charger, Best Buy? Or do they just have phone chargers?
For those of you that have ever gotten obsessed with a hobby/ job/ object/ subject:
What's the obsession you've had that you would consider the most constructive or worthwhile?
What was the least constructive or worthwhile?
i'm visiting my dad this weekend and he's telling my sister and me that if you(a man) meet someone(a woman) at a bar or in the grocery store or something you should never ask the girl for her phone number. he says it's too aggressive. he says if a woman is interested she'll figure it out. i really don't agree with that. how am i supposed to know a guy is interested if he doesn't ask for my phone number or e-mail or even my myspace(though i never want to see someone who asks for my myspace again)? this doesn't make any sense to me.
do you think a man shouldn't ask a woman for her number after they meet?
Cheapest vacation you've ever taken?
I've heard of many couples having "lists". That is, a short list (usually 3-5) of people (usually celebrities) who it would be "ok" to cheat on their significant other with. They share the list with their SO, get it "approved" and voila.
GIRL: I'm adding Tom Cruise to my list.
BOY: Ok, if you ever meet Tom it will be ok for you to have sex with him.
(Something like this, except bigger lists, and the guy obviously has a list too. I think the concept was used on "Friends" once...)
Have you ever had such a list with a significant other?
If you were to make such a list right this minute (up to 5 people) who would be on it?
Part 2: I believe (but I could be wrong) most such lists are made fully knowing that you will never ever ever meet these people, and that even if you did, they would never have sex with you anyway. Correct me if I'm wrong.
If you and your SO actually had such lists, and you actually met someone on your list, and they actually wanted to sleep with you... would you do it? If your SO was in a similar situation and actually did it, would you be upset since the list was made "all in fun"?
How long do your fingernails have to be before you cut them?
I stumbled across this business on Facebook:
FAST FOOD TO YOUR DOORSTEP!!!!
Ever wanted something other than pizza delivered to your dorm/apartment/house?!
Are you too busy to go to the market?
Well, starting June 1st all your dreams will come true!
Chipotle In N Out Del Taco Taco Bell
McDonalds Subway KFC Quiznos
Starbucks Coffee Bean CVS Longs
Ralphs Bristol Farms Trader Joes Vons
Sounds like a good idea, but then:
$6 per fast food deliveries $10 per market deliveries
A $35 for 7 deliveries
S $80 for 20 deliveries
P $180 for 50 deliveries
So, my question is: Would you use this service, or would the delivery price prevent you from using it?
Personally, I am pretty lazy and would love Starbucks delivered to my doorstep but the thought of paying an extra $6.00 for a $4.00 coffee would almost always defer me from ever using the service.
I understand why they'd need to charge such a high delivery cost, but I don't see how it could ever be worth it unless you were ordering tons and tons of food each time. Not to mention that $6 or $10 is just the delivery cost, and I'm assuming they'd also be expecting tips on top of that.
1. How can I clear my google search history?
2. Could I program my computer to work as an alarm clock and wake me up with a song?
Do you get embarrassed when you walk in/out of a store and the sensors go off & you haven't done anything wrong?
I do. And I have this particular pair of pants that always trips the alarm and I don't get why.
I had to wear braces for 2.5 years to correct a TMJ problem. They've been off for 6 weeks now. So if you had to have braces at some point...
1. How long did you wear them?
2. Do you wear your retainer/s?
3. Were you given a fixed retainer, and if so, is it still bonded? (I'm wondering about how long mine will last).
Anything else you want to add...feel free.
What does your key chain look like? (Pics plz.)
What food do you hate that all of your friends love?

What food do you love that your friends hate?
When you were a kid, were you a Nancy Drew fan, or a Trixie Belden fan? or did you read something else?
So for those of you who have/or have had any acne at all...
Where is the weirdest place you have ever had a zit?
1) Would you enter a relationship with somebody if you knew they had a terminal disease?
2) What if the disease was slow-progressing, and they weren't constantly bedridden?
Is there any good Sin City fan fiction out there?
I can't find much and it seems to be ridiculous pairings of characters in dirty situations. I demand quality this time!
Believing in the existence of a personal savior or the ability to have a personal relationship with God or gods is:
a. a bit like having an imaginary friend and not something I myself could do or
b. a real and powerful thing?
Thoughts are appreciated.
What is your guilty pleasure?
(ie something you love, which everyone else hates or something..)
(p.s sorry if this has already been asked. I'm not sure what has and hasn't been asked already.. so forgive me? Don't answer if you dont want)

When exactly did Darth Vader find out Luke was his son? (Yes, this question is for serious.) :D
How would you take it if one of your parents told you ""it’s a lot better to play the field than be committed to one person"?
my dad just said that and...I'm pretty sure my mind is now damaged.
Do you think it's important that couples share some of the same interests?
Yes, I think it's terribly important because what are you going to do and talk about if you have nothing in common?
Do you paint your nails?
What is your preferred color?
What color are they now?
Do you shape your nails? What shape?
I do. I like pinks and French manicures. I also like really deep rich colors, when my nails are shorter. Right now they are salmonish with clear sparkles. I do shape mine- they are square tipped right now. It makes removing my contacts terribly difficult.
What is a skank to you?
Besides immature or insecure, what do you call a 16 year old girl who leaves several giant hickeys on her boyfriend's neck?
1. Have you been to a graduation where the speaker asked people to hold their applause until the end? Did they?
2. For the people that did cheer when someone's name was called, were they disciplined at all? (Kicked out, etc)
3. Do you think people should be disciplined for over-excessive cheering/yelling/blowing an air horn when their kid's name is called?
Do you enjoy salad?
If so, what do you put in your salad?
Have you ever, late at night in your own bed, thought to yourself, "I want to go home?"
hello, i believe i have a spiderbite on my leg.
there's a pale circle with what looks like the math symbol for "therefore" inside of it, and then there's this oblong oval of bruised skin.
should i be worried?
Why does Livejournal hate me?
It hasn't let me update my journal for 2 or 3 days; when I click post an entry it just never loads. Same thing happens if I try to do anything else. I'm not having any other problems with the internet/LJ though. Is there anyway I can fix this TQC?? D:
what's a good first credit card? preferably something easy to get, as i don't have a job right now, i'm just a lowly student, etc.
edit: i have money, and i have an income of sorts. i also plan on getting a job soon, and i will have job-like gigs at school once it starts up again. i need a card to establish credit, not to spend money i don't have.
Have you ever been on a plane with technical difficulties? Did it make you want to get off the plane and cancel the trip?
My cousin was on a flight to LA to eventually end up in Australia yesterday and while they were in the air one of the engines blew up :( I don't know how she put herself back onto a plane after that.
Four things that have nothing to do with each other-
1. Do you like parody movies? To go along with that, wasn't Epic Movie one of the worst films you've ever seen?
2. Favorite Saturday Night Live skit from the last five years?
3. How old were you the first time you had sex?
4. What TV or movie character do you thing you would be friends with?
Why do you think parents enter their children in beauty pageants?

What was the last TV show you mainlined?
How much did you watch and how long did it take?
For me, it was Prison Break: it took me three weeks to get through 2 seasons (it would have been less, but I had to wait for them to download!)
Do you like Marc Anthony- the curly shampoo brand?
Is there another curly shampoo brand that is better? What is it?
whats your most favorite thing to get at IHOP?
So, if you hypothetically dripped lots of blue wax on a tan carpet...a really cheap and hard to deal with tan carpet you might imagine...how would you get it up?
I mean, after you do the obvious and pick up as much as you can get up with prying it up with a spoon and knife. Any ideas how a person, who totally didn't do this in a rented apartment themselves, would get this out of the carpet?
(Yeah, okay, fine, it's my fault. I should have had the candle on a platter...but I don't want to lose my security deposit over this stupid puddle of blue on the carpet...but I've gotten everything I can with just picking at it...)
When you were a child, was there ever anything you saw other children do all the time that either made no sense to you or annoyed you? Does it still make no sense/annoy you, or do you know why they did it now?
I was always confused when kids were drawing, that the sky would be a blue stripe at the top of the page, and then empty space between the stripe and the ground. I mean, the sky clearly meets the ground at the horizon! Eventually I learned that other kids didn't think about things like horizons and perspective, so they were thinking "sky above me, ground below me", meanwhile I always knew about horizons and perspective, because my mother is an artist and taught me how to draw.
EDIT: Totally unrelated - have any of you ever travelled significant distances by ship, rather than by plane (such as across oceans)? If you have, please share your experiences.
For those of you with Myspace accounts, did you leave Tom on your Friends list?
I took him off mine right away, but nearly everybody I see leaves him on there.
Does anyone here live in Vegas? If so, what do you think of it, any advice for someone who might move there?
1. What would you assume was happening if you saw a man trying to drag a woman out of a house while she was yelling, "No, let me go!"? What would you do about it?
2. If the man then yells, "I'll drag you all the way to the hospital if I have to! I'm not leaving you here to die!" what would you think was happening? Would what you do change at all?
3. Is there a specific beach that you go to most often?
4. What is your favorite thing about that beach?
5. When was the last time you were there?
