1. For those of you who've had LASIK done, would you recommend it? Do you have any regrets?

2. When did MTV stop being cool? Was it ever cool?

3. Have you ever experience racism? If so, feel free to share, if you want.

4. What do you think the next generation will tease us about (fads, fashion, etc.)? I'm thinking cat macros.

What are some good books for a 15 year old girl who doesn't usually like reading much and who reads at or a bit below her grade-level?

I'm helping a co-worker make a list for her daughter, who has recently gotten into a YA fantasy series, the name of which I've forgotten.

Leaving Harry Potter aside, I've already suggested His Dark Materials, The Hobbit, and Madeleine L'Engle.

So she likes fantasy. Soft sci-fi might work and her mom said she might consider some historical fiction.

Is anyone else having problems with Hotmail's inbox page being detected as a virus? Does anyone know how to fix this? I can't even view my inbox page because of this.

I am fairly certain it's the sequence of characters in the URL but I can't be sure.

A friend asked me this and I thought I'd share. It's for males or for anyone who wishes to post an answer.

Someone has decided to take horrible revenge on you. A rubber band is wrapped tightly around your scrotum preventing blood flow from your body to your testicles. Deadly poison is then injected into your scrotum.

Do you leave the rubberband on to save your life (but lose your testicles) or remove it and die from the poison?

What do religions who don't believe in "spilling the seed", and don't allow birth control, think of having sex while pregnant? Because there is no chance of getting pregnant while pregnant, isn't that considered spilling the seed? Or can the couple hope by a miracle that they get pregnant again and therefore it doesn't "count"? Ha ha.

My family has a nearly year old min pin/rat terrier mix puppy, and she's pretty well-behaved most of the time. The problem is that she can't stand to not have anyone within her eyesight/paying attention to her. Whenever one of us is home, if she's not wandering around the house or we're not playing with her, she whimpers and cries to a genuinely frustrating degree and won't stop until someone comes to her or she gets so fed up that she goes to sleep. I don't know what's wrong with her. What should we do? I can't even sleep late unless I drag her bed in with me because she won't freakin' stop crying!

[aerynmoo]
[mood |curiouscurious]

So, for everything you do in life, you expend energy. Walking, talking, pooping, sex. It all expends energy. You have to refuel and sleep to gain your energy back. Now, onto my question:

Do super powers expend energy just like regular daily activities?
If they don't in the comics, do you think they would in real life?
Would you want a super power if it came with an expense?

The Force expends energy and magic (such as Harry Potter brand magic) expends energy. Why wouldn't a super power do the same?


I thought of this last night while lying in bed. I was thinking that if I had a wish that it would be to be able to drive perfectly and never get into an accident. But then I thought that I could wish to fly. But how exhausting would flying be?

1. Do you think left-handed people are discriminated against?  (I'm not sure discrimination is the correct word to use...but you get my drift.)

Examples:
-classrooms filled with right handed desks
-only having one pair (if any) left-handed scissors for a large group of people 
-paper-cutters with the handle on the right side
-having to pay extra to get a left-handed guitar (this is the one I find really absurd)

2. To my fellow left-handers out there: Have you adapted to the right-handed world?

I learned to play the guitar right-handed, I shoot a basketball right handed, use right-handed scissors all because it just made life less complicated.

I haven't been good about contacting him. In fact, I haven't spoken to him since the party (not intentionally, just haven't).

He just sent me a text message that say "Yeah, way to keep in touch..."

What should my response be, if any?

So, unfortunately, due to my stepdad changing jobs, we're switching cell providers to Verizon. (He gets like a 20% discount or something like that, I dunno.) My question is, for those of you that have them, what phone would you recommend? I text a decent amount every month, but I don't like the enV or that weird Samsung one that has the double flip, because the buttons are too small. I'm looking at the Nokia 6315i or just buying a used Moto E815 off of eBay and using that.

So, what do you all recommend?

[tempest_omouthy]
I got a new bb ferret, bbs! :D The only problem is, we've had her almost two days and still can't decide what to name her. :( Usually, especially after seeing their personalities, the names just come to us or we start calling them something that sticks. What do you guys think we should call her? OMFG The Cutest Cut EVARS!!1one!1Collapse )
She's a super fast runner, gives kisses and is adorable. So far, the things we've thought of and liked the best are Bella (Bella or Trix) and possibly Mia after Mia Hamm since this little girl LOVES pushing the toy ball around! Her ferret breathern are named Blondi(fur)/Deborah Harry (she's the only light coloured, non-sable we have), Stinky Pete, Meeko, and Mini (named such because at the time she was a mini of Meeko - now you have to hold them together to tell them apart because Mini isn't mini anymore!).

Also, a question noone will answer because of the super adorableness above! But I'll ask anyways! What's a good inexpensive sunblock that isn't greasy feeling? I know which one I'm going to buy for our faces, but my husband hates sunblock because of how it feels on him (he doesn't like lotion, either, so that should tell you how much he hates sunscreen) so I need something different for our arms. Living in Atlanta and having a mother who's fought skin cancer three times (so far D:) has made me paranoid. Oh, and in case it matters, I need a cheap one for our arms to make the expensive face one last longer. I read in an article written by a dermatologist that this is the way to go - but she didn't cover many options for the non yucky feeling ones. :/

PS - Please don't think we're stealing your doggie's name,bellasmommy! My husband doesn't even read TQC and he's the one who suggested Bella!

Okay, I'm wondering why does my bra strap constantly fall off? Even if I tighten it up, it still slides off, even my tank top does it too. It's really annoying. Any suggestions on how to stop this?

Can anyone recommend a cheap Hotel or Nice Hostel to stay at in NYC?  I need to use up my vacation at work and really want to go to NYC but don't want to pay a lot for a room. 

Has anyone had any experience with Candy Hostel?  http://www.hostelbookers.com/booking/index.cfm?fuseaction=hosteldetails&hostel=23640

It looks pretty nice and they have private rooms but I don't really want it to be really slummy or in a bad neighborhood.  And it looks like the private rooms are only $55 per night.  So if I split that with a friend that could be a lot cheaper than a hotel. 

Thanks!

How does one negotiate doctor prices?

I have an obgyn I love, he's a good family friend, yada yada.
I just found out I'm pregnant (!!) and our maternity benefits won't be valid because we are not out of the waiting period yet (boo). We don't qualify for any kind of assistance, so I'm out of options. We're much better off financially than we were with our first, so it's not going to be as difficult to pay, but I'd like to save where I can!

So. What do I do? Do I just ask my doctor? Should I talk to billing? What kind of angle should I take - "If I pay it up front, can I have a 20% discount"? Any other ideas?

[vonlisbon]
You receive a gift in a close setting (say, at your very small office or while seeing your in-laws). You thank the giver to their face and have a good chunk of face-to-face time with them before and after the gift giving.

Do you still send them a thank you note afterwards?

When I was little I was always harassed into sending notes in situations like these and I just realized the other day that I've never gotten a single note like this after being thoroughly thanked to my face. Do I just give gifts to rude people or were my parents trying to hone my awesone thank you note writing skills by making me write them when it wasn't necessary?

If I wore a women's suit I'd look like a dude in a woman's suit...but I don't think the place I will be interviewing would accept it if I wore a men's suit. Any ideas? I have a bunch of nice stripe shirts that I would probably pair up with a pair of greyish/black dress pants and black shoes.......?

Sooo I have a serious situation. I'm at work, and one of the girls has this small live bamboo stalk in a little glass cup with roots and marbles that's been sitting at her desk for years. All of a sudden, about 20 minutes ago, she starts screaming. We all go over and there are WORMS swimming around in her bamboo stalk. They must have grown out of the mildew or something. They are very very small and "inch" when they move or just freak out and flail around everywhere. They are covered with "hair" and have little antennae. They were all various sizes and there seemed to be hundreds of them, they're transparent. They have a black line inside their body and in their head is a black dot that seems to be their brain. I want to know exactly what kind of worm this is. What kind of worm is this?

What lj comms or forums do you know that are for Australian books and tv shows and movies? (either in general for 'Australian [book/movie/tv show]' or for a specific one) I've seen hardly any around really. And that makes me a bit sad. So I'd love as many of them listed as posible!

http://colandfrank.proboards56.com/ for Lano and Woodley. (anyone like them?)
aussie_boosh not an Australian show, but it's for Australian fans of The Mighty Boosh
cnnnn for CNNNN and The Chaser's War on Everything
lwfanfic for fanfiction about Lano and Woodley
obernewtyn for the Obernewytn Chronicles books by Isobelle Carmody.
pagansfandom for the books about the character Pagan, a squire in the 1100s, and his knight, Roland, by Catherine Jinks.
heard_of_it is for any country but we do talk about quite a few Australian things.

That's all I personally know of right now. What about you? Trying to get as big a list as possible.


What are your favourite australian books?
I love the Pagan series and Obernewtyn and other ones by Isobelle Carmody. There's lots of sci fi that's written by Australians. Right now I'm a bit blank feeling though.

What are your favourite Australian tv shows and movies? Do any of those mention or are set in Adelaide?
I love Lano and Woodley. Blank on movies right now but I know I do like some. Lano and Woodley mention Adelaide, but only as Frank Woodley's mother living there. In one episode Frank's going to leave Col, and he packs his bags to go to Adelaide to live with his mother. He is on the bus, and you see that it says "Adelaide: 666" haha. :D

Have you tried showing them to non Australians? Did they like them?
Yep, converted them! :D

I'm failing at life right now. I have to leave the town my school is in because I ran out of money. I have to go back home and save up a bunch of money and get my life in order. The thing is, although I feel as though this is the worst thing that has ever happened to me, I don't really want to come back here. I was thinking of just moving to Ireland once I saved up the money. I have lots and lots of family there, so its not as random of a decision as it seems. I've been to Ireland twice, but I was too young for it to really matter.
(1)Have any of you ever done something like this before?
(2)Do you think it would be hard for me to find a good job there?
(3)Do you think school would cost me an arm and a leg?
I know that here(Tallahassee, Florida), schooling is outrageous unless you're a resident, but it also only takes 12 months to be considered a resident.
(3a)Will this hold true in Ireland?
I'm shooting for Dublin, as that is where most of my family resides. I currently pay $333 a month for my share of a 3 bedroom townhouse. Utilities usually run me around $80.
(4)Is this going to change drastically once I make the move?
I guess basically I just want some input from people who live there, or who have before, and know what its like being a 20-something making a drastic change like this. I know this is going to take far more research than just asking TQC, but I thought I would get a feel of what I'm jumping into.

3. is this post out of left field, or do you perceive that there're people here who bring up the same stuff about themselves over and over again?

obviously related to the other thread...
How old were you when all of those physically painful things happened to you? Have any of you ever had appendicitis? How was it? I hear that is also extremely painful. Has anything particularly interesting/terrible ever happened at any of your hospital visits?

Does anyone else have friends with annoying behaivours towards ones pets? Anyone else know how to correct this?

I have a friend that always tries to make my pets love her. She always makes a big show of showering them with affection, encouraging them madly to sit on her, and if they go to her for pets, she goes all smug, and if they end up in my bed, she makes oblique references to me taking them from her sleeping arms as opposed to them seeking me out. Oh, and she always tries to tell me things like 'Oooh kittens like /this/ better'.

It's really pissing me off.

Do you think Canadians and Americans actually act/think differently in any way? (besides the slight language variations)
