Anyone ever tear a rotator cuff/get rotator cuff surgery? Or, perhaps, know anybody who has?

I tore BOTH of my rotator cuffs awhile back and I experience constant pain everyday to the point where I'm starting to consider surgery (even though it's pretty serious and the recovery is grueling...perhaps too grueling for my schedule as an active student). Does anyone have any experiences to share or any knowledge of this in general?

Callin' anyone with Virgina Beach knowledge

Ok TQC you've never let me down...so here goes.

My son and I are goin' to visit my bff in Virgina July 13-16. Her mother and x-step daughter are coming as well.  We want to head to Virgina Beach for the day maybe overnight. 

My friend just moved there and we know NOTHING about Virgina. We have only been to the beach a few times in our lives and it will be my sons first trip. He's I'm so excited cause I love, love LOVE the beach and want to make the most out of a one/two day trip. 

What I want to know is where in VB would be a good place to go that
1. would have nice beaches?  that are not OMFG horribly crowed...we were thinking maybe a wildlife park area but we want to be able to lounge by the water and let me the kids play some.
2.  would have something near by like maybe a zoo or aquarium, carnival or something fun to do (that's not crazy expensive)
3.  What's the best! seafood place to eat at?  We only get to eat out once so again we want to make it good.  (should be toddler friendly but I am not opposed to a bar type place as long as a well mannered *or he'll go to the car kinda thing* toddler can go)

Thanks TQC!

My friend broke both of his arms and bruised a rib in a biking accident. I'm visiting for a few days and can't think of much more than "go for a walk". He's sick and tired of watching movies, as I would be, too. What should we do?

I've always been a sorta tomboy. I don't think I even own a dress because I've never liked the way my legs looked. I'm trying to become more feminine, including makeup and stupid clothes like Victoria's Secret. What do you do to make yourself feel sexy or feminine?

Nose and Ear Hair Trimmer

I bought this at Bed Bath & Beyond yesterday for $30. I bought it because it has a nosehair trimmer and my husband needs one, but I haven't been able to find a decently priced one that doesn't run on AA batteries in Australia, and since I'm in the states for a few weeks I thought I'd try to find one here.

However my concern is that it was only $30, and I don't know if it will be any good. :-\ I'm not used to good things being cheap anymore because in Australia everything is expensive, and if it's not, then it's generally not worth buying.

Do you or someone you know have one of these? How well does it work?

OR Can you recommend a good nosehair trimmer that doesn't pull and doesn't cost an arm and a leg? My stepdad got one from Sharper Image and it's crap and costed $50!

starting salaries

If you could ballpark it for me...what was your starting salary when you got out of college (bachelor's degree)? (don't have to be specific unless you want to, I'm just looking ballpark here.)

Did you really want to do something with your education that someone close to you didn't seem to support?

Crazy as it sounds, I want to do public radio full time, but my boyfriend, who's in commercial radio, keeps making comments that sound to me like I wouldn't get paid crap. I came home and looked up what most of my coworkers make--they are state jobs, so therefore open records so don't OMG flame me--and it's not as awful as he's probably imagining, which makes me think he's resentful? I don't know. But it's getting annoying.

I moved overseas and can't remember the major electronics stores in the US. I'm going to give away my computer, though, and need to take all my data off it and put it somewhere that is portable so I can take it back to Australia.

Red Lights

1. You come to a red light wanting to make a right turn onto a one way road where the speed limit is 50mph.

Do you:

a) STOP at the red light before making the right like you are supposed to.
b) Break the law and RUN the red light since no one is coming.
c) YIELD but still break the law (by not coming to a complete stop*) and run the red light since no one is coming.

*A complete stop means your tires actually stop moving.

2. Do you get mad when people in front of you actually stop if you are the type of person who doesn't?

3. Does it matter if it's early in the morning (e.g still dark), at night, or the middle of the day? If so, why?

It contributes to my road rage to think that people are running so late and are in such a hurry that they can't stop at a red light. This also goes for stop signs. But, that's just me.

I have this sound system that the previous owner left in this house and i looked up the instruction manual on it and it said :

you can play data cds (cd-roms/cdr/cd-rw) recorded in mp3 (mpeg1 audio layer 3) and jpeg format. however the discs must be recorded according to ISO 9660 level 1, level 2 or joliet format for the system to recognize the tracks. You can also play discs recorded in mutli sessions.

But I'm looking at my sound files and it says MPEG Layer 3 Audio -- that means I can't play it on this sound system  (sony Dav-DX170) right? Is there a way to convert it?

---EDIT--- Wait a sec..." mp3 (mpeg1 audio layer 3) " that means I can burn it and be able to play it!! Right?? But how do you record it in ISO 9660 level 1/2?

The paper telling me where my classes are doesn't specify if she's a doctor or not and I've checked on line too. I don't want to offend her by addressing her wrong

2) Should I just go to the campus bookstore and ask them if they know what books I need?

3) Should I wait until the first day of class to find out what books I need, but run the risk that the teacher will use the book that day? I don't want to look like that idiot kid that doesn't know what she's doing (although I really don't know what I'm doing) and have the teacher thinking that I'm not good enough to take her class because I'm in high school.

I haven't used my PS2 in awhile - it's just been sitting around and hasn't been dropped or anything. I just now hooked it all up and plugged it in. When I turn it on, the little red light turns on for about 1-3 seconds, then fades off. During that time if I hit the reset or eject button, it'll turn green, but it'll still fade off, and it won't work. It doesn't make that telltale "Whiirrr" noise it makes when it's working/reading a disc. I made sure everything is plugged in correctly and I tried a different outlet. Is it broken for good?

Random Weirdness

I went to my (very recent) former job today. While I was there a woman asked if she could borrow me. I said  yes and she asked what size shirt I wore and then laid a t-shirt on me to see if it would fit her. And then another. The second time she did this she also asked what size bra I wore. She was very polite about the whole thing and even said "If you don't mind my asking what size are you?" It was just the oddest thing. Which leads me to....

What's the oddest/strangest thing strangers have said/done to you?

And secondly...I spent the day with my fiance's son. My fiance and his son are both White, I am Black. Standing outside of Wal-Mart, a (Black) woman asked if I was a nanny.  I didn't get upset, I did tell her no and asked why she asked. To that all she said was that I was with the kid.

If this happened to you would you be offended? I obviously get the curiosity aspect of it, but it seems a really rude thing to ask about. Am I wrong in thinking that it's no one's business why this child is with me?

Anyone work in a financial aid office? (Specifically at a SUNY school?) If so, this question is for you...


I went to college. I dropped out. Since I dropped out and still owe them money, they won't release my transcripts.

I got financial aid to cover one semester of school at a different college, but they revoked it and basically told me "hand over the money, or we can't cover you since we still don't have your transcripts." needless to say, I couldn't pay it and had to drop out of that school too.

Now that you have that background knowledge... my question is, if I get a loan that is NOT from the state or federal government (such as a personal loan through a bank, or a Sallie Mae loan, etc).. will this same crap happen to me, or will the transcript thing not matter since it's not so strict?

Do any of you ladies use foundation/concealer on your lips to get that "natural" look, so that your lips are basically the same color as your skin?

My lips are naturally very red, and I need to make them very pale for a costume. Basically, I need to look dead all day, and my lips are way too lively.

So, what's the best way to achieve this look? Best products? I want something that I won't have to reapply all the time, and won't feel and/or taste gross on my mouth.

Favorite SIMS

I know SIMS stuff has been brought up before, sorry.

I'm bored so often. I am going to go out tonight and get a SIMS game. Which one is your favorite? Which one can you do more things in, etc.?

1. Do you wash your ass crack every time you take a shower?
2. Even if you're in the shower with another person?
3. Do you use a washcloth, your bare hands, or a bar of soap?
4. When you shower with someone else, do you have a tendency to wash certain parts of them? If so, which parts?

Calling all Macintosh users!

Hi all! This question is mainly for Apple computer users. For reference, I use an iBook G4. :)
So I've been trying to zip some photos into a file to send to my friend, but Stuffit doesn't seem to be a compressor. It seems to only be an expander. Is there any other program that you guys know of that is for Apples that is similar to Winzip or Winrar?

I thought maybe Stuffit wasn't showing how to compress a file because I had an outdated version, so I completely deleted it from my hard drive, and went to the website to download one of those free versions, but it looked like a LOT of hassle to download it. :/

I guess Apple computers and Windows PCs both have their pros and cons!

Thank you so much, and I hope you can help me! :)

1. What are the chances this place treats their animals humanely? Should I go there tomorrow?

2. Do you think there is anything unusual about wearing shorts on a plane? If you do, how old are you?

And I don't remember which TQC member recommended it but I'm definitely going to this place tomorrow.

Anyone know where I can find funny NES/Super Mario images? I did a google search but it wasn't helpful.

I came across this one last night and as a fan of classic NES and Super Mario, I would love to find more of these.

A long time ago I remember seeing a community devoted to pictures of scrabble boards taken at the end of a game. I think it was in the spotlight. Does anyone know what community I'm talking about?


So, I'm not the best grocery shopper, but I did pretty well this time.  I've got some really good produce, some salsa, dried fruit, etc. and what I already have in my kitchen.  What I'm looking to do is spruce up the Hot Pockets that I got.  I love these things, but I've always felt like they could be just like homemade with a little bit of coaxing from an experienced chef.  But experience I have not.  What do you guys do with your hot pockets?

Random questions!

Because I'm interested : )

1. What have you learnt today?

2. Are you religious? If yes, what's your religion? If not, are you spiritual in some other way or a strict atheist / agnostic?

3. Do you like it where you live? Why / why not?

4. What's the time where you live anyway? What's the weather like?

5. Also: Should I make a new account with an English username if I'm gonna keep a journal in English? Because I don't want to rename this, but I realize it must look stupid to those who don't speak Finnish ._. But I wouldn't want to abandon this one, because I like the username myself.

I consistently don't have enough protein in my diet. How will this effect me? (non-serious answers probably more welcome than real ones, though I'd like at least one real answer)

I have the option of buying either the "standard" or "deluxe" version of a CD on iTunes. Does anyone know what the difference is? The content, songs and "digital booklet" looks to be the same.

Let's say a friend of yours asks to use your computer. Would you let them use it?

There was a time that I did let friends use my computer but not anymore. The last time I let a friend use my computer she deleted some files, installed & uninstalled some programs.
