Have you ever 'tricked' someone into eating something they didn't want to?
(example: tricking a kid into eating veggies, tricking a vegetarian into eating meat, etc)

When was the last time you spoke?
How often do you talk?
How many people do you speak to daily, on average?

Have you ever loved someone so much it made you cry?
Have you ever tried to find the words but they don't come out right?
Have you ever?
Have you everrrrrrr?

Quote question

In "Anne of Green Gables", Anne states that she once read "My life is a perfect graveyard of buried hopes" in a book. I was wondering what book she read that in.

I'm scared completely frakking shitless about going to college in 19 days. Not the academic part, but thinking of sharing my room with strangers, and having to be involved in this community, and not having any space to be alone in my suite. Thinking of not being alone or just of not being at home sends me into little mini panic attacks. Was/is anyone else this afraid? And does anyone have any advice?

Thanks to you guys saying that driving in reverse takes miles off your car, today I drove in reverse doughnuts only to GAIN a mile.

What is the biggest bullshit you've heard here?

hmm

So I had a pretty strange encounter earlier, and I'm wondering how everyone else would have handled it.

I was out with my nieces and nephews at the local park/castle & grounds (babysitting) when some other random kid came by on a bike (for reference my nieces and nephews are all ten-ish, and this kid was ten-ish also). He saw the kids with me, stopped, came over and said hi. All the other kids said hi and started chatting, like kids do.

I didn't take much notice at first, until I realised that the kid was using huge amounts of shitty language. He said 'fuck' pretty much every other word and was talking about beating the shit out of people and crap like that. At first I was inclined to laugh, seeing this come out of a ten year old's mouth, but then I got to wondering why my relatives were friends with him as they are of the goody two shoes kind.

So anyway it quickly became obvious that they weren't friends when my youngest niece dropped back and whispered to me, "I don't like him, he's really weird.. he picks on [my brother]"

The kid became suspicious that she was talking to me like almost instantly and started shouting "Have you been bitching at me?" at her. I was pretty WTF'd out at this point so I told the kid he should probably go and play somewhere else. He told me he could 'do whatever the fuck [he] liked' and I was all, "sure, go do that.. somewhere else"

At this point he started doing the "are you going to make me" thing which left me pretty nonplussed as I'm seventeen and twice his height, so obviously I'm not going to lay a finger on him. So instead I told him to go away and told the kids we were going home & walked off. He followed us all the way home & kept riding his bike really close up to the kids and scaring them shitless (it was kind of obvious that they were scared of this little twat). He kept swearing at us and coming up to me and trying to, I don't know, start something. I just kind of watched but didn't say much other than things along the lines of "go away small child". I felt bad about it afterwards and I'm pretty sure I handled it badly, but at the same time I don't want to get into shit for starting something with a ten year old.

I'm going to be taking the kids to that place quite often this summer, I forsee, and as that's like the only place in my tiny village kids hang out I expect I'll bump into him again & when that happens I want to handle it better so my kids aren't upset & have their fun ruined. What can I do to make it obvious to him that he needs to fuck off that doesn't involve actual violence? I would threaten to report him to his teachers or something, but it turns out he was kicked out of the school my nieces and nephews go to (big surprise -.-).

How do you keep yourself from thinking too much/getting too excited about what happened on a first date?

I just had a really great first date and I'm trying not to blow it out of proportion. I don't want to get too excited this early in the game . . . I don't trust things to work out well, based on personal experience.

Hyphenated last name *from birth*

Have you grown up with a hyphenated last name? Do you hate it, like it, not really care? How many syllables is it altogether?

Also, why is it hyphenated? Did your mother keep her name altogether with no hyphenation, and yours is the result of your mother's + father's name? Or did your mother take a hyphenated name after marriage? Did both your parents?

Where were you when you first discovered that division by zero is undefined? Did you calmly accept the discovery, cry, or fly into a rage, the likes of which hasn't been seen since steroid abuse was discovered? Or are you in complete denial to this day, still believing that "IT CAN BE DONE!!!"?

I always insisted that 1 / 0 = ∞, until my Calculus teacher showed me that that would mean ∞ * 0 = 1, which isn't the case.

I, am apparently, a bigger freak than what I thought I was....

I have always known, internally, that I am odd. Yesterday, this was confirmed by a medical professional.

MY QUESTION:

Have you ever had a doctor tilt his head to the side, look at you, and say something to the effect of: You confuse the fuck out of me. ?

Were you deeply disconcerted?
Or were you relieved that at the very least, it's not all inside your head?


Deleted my answers because, apparently I cause peoples brains to short circuit.

I always thought this was common sense, but hey

Ok, so here's the story:

My fiance and I go shopping late last night and get home around 8pm. We buy some frozen food, namely some frozen mini-pizzas and those funky Aunt Jemima breakfast tv-dinner things... (he eats them, so hey, I won't complain.)

Anyway, I get caught up with feeding our piggers and thought he had thrown the stuff in the freezer, which as it turns out, he didn't. The frozen stuff was still sitting on the floor next to the fridge at 6:30 this morning. So that means it had been sitting out for almost 11 hours.

I felt the food through the box and it was kinda room-temp... maybe just a little cold in the middle, but really, I figure it's garbage. My counterpart thinks otherwise and we had a mini-argument this morning over whether it's garbage or not. He says he'll eat it. I say I'd rather risk tossing roughly $10 worth of food then risk him missing a week of work from puking up cheap pizza and microwaveable eggs.

So, of course, I ask you, LJ, as Google isn't being my friend this morning: Is this food still good? I put it back in the freezer for now, but really, I'm not sure I trust it.

ETA:

Would you toss it or keep it?

It's going to be hot today, REALLY hot. However, I have a meeting at work where the temperature is always 50 degrees.

In this situation, would you:

a) Wear jeans and gym shoes so that your feet don't freeze while you're at work
b) Wear short and flip flops so that you don't die from the heat while getting to work
c) Something else that you'll explain in the comments

mm, delicious spiders

So! You go to a restaurant, one you really like, they have one of your favorite dishes there, you've gone there many times before. Yada yada. This time, however, you're almost through your meal when you discover... a dozen or so baby spiders crawling all over your plate. You move your plate to discover a full grown, rather large spider camping out on the table.

Yikes.

Anyway, the restaurant moves you to another table and gives you free food (not the whole meal, but free dessert, which adds up to about twice the cost of your meal). There are no more spiders.

Do you go back? It's a chain; if you wouldn't go back to that particular restaurant, would you go back to others in the same chain? Or are you TOTALLY SCARRED FOR LIFE?

I was supposed to hear back from my friend about when I am picking him up to drive 3 hours for a concert. I wanted to leave at 1pm-2pm, and it is now 11:11am. Apparently, the number I have of his is the wrong number (I called it this morning), he doesn't have a cell, and I wrote on his wall, but he doesn't have a computer, he goes to the library.

So my question: At what time do you suggest I grab my best friend and go without him?

And not like, sad songs that you would expect to make you cry, but weird ones?

I just teared up while driving home and listening to Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles. It's just so hopeful!

Dear TQC,
I got a male betta fish for my birthday. I haven't had a fish since I was 8, when I won a goldfish at a fair, and that fish jumped out of his bowl after a month and met his death under the couch. I don't want this fish [who I have named Maurice, btw] to meet the same fate!

I've read the basics about how to test their water and get it to the right condition and how often to feed them, etc. but there seems to be some debate about how big of a space a betta fish needs.
Mine is currently in a 1 gallon glass bowl, the typical "goldfish bowl" you see in cartoons. It has about an inch of rock at the bottom, and a leafy fake plant in the middle that he can swim in and around and rest on.

Is this a good home for a betta?

What was the last thing you had no right to be annoyed about, but were annoyed by anyway?

It's not my house though, so I have no right to be pissed off, haha.

Snobby ears.

I have snobby ears. They don't like anything but gold earrings. They haven't always been snobby, however...for some reason, about 7 years ago, they started rejecting sterling silver and whatever else earring posts are generally made of.

My question: I'm looking for earrings to wear at my wedding, but it's been so long since I've worn earrings, I'm not sure if the posts have to be gold both inside and out or just *filled* with gold. I ask because in searching for earrings online, I'm finding many advertised as 14k gold filled posts.

I know, it's different for everyone, but I just thought I'd ask those in my position what their ears generally tolerate. Thanks!

And so people without earring problems don't feel left out:

ETA: It was said over a MySpace profile comment, if that makes a difference.

What is the minimum you would agree to be paid per hour to be financially stable?

Do you think someone can actually live a healthy life on minimum wage in the US? (5.85/hr or 2.13/hr for waiters)

Cooks:

Have you ever been adventurous or are you adventurous in your cooking? Do your creations come out delicious, or only good enough for the trash disposal?

What have you created? Care to share your recipes/'secret ingredients'?

My father has cooked for us for as long as I can remember, and since about three months ago, I have REALLY gotten into cooking, and experimenting. I'm open to things other people have tried.

1. Have you ever given blood?
2. Have you ever been rejected from giving blood? If so, why?


1. I used to give every 56 days like clockwork, but then they messed up with a vein and it squicked me out too much, so I haven't given since 2003.
2. I tried today and they said NO THANKS because my temperature was too high! I've been rejected for low iron and low blood pressure plenty of times, but never for a high temp! It was only 99.7.

When in an small office was are some common "administrative tasks"?
I'm interested in a job, and I'm not exactly sure what they mean by it, seeing as I have never actually worked in an office before.

EDIT: It's a small photographers office, if that's any help

1) do you feel like you don't get any credit for doing something that you think is praise-worthy?
2) why didn't your first serious relationship work out?
3) do you have a favourite day of the year, that has no national meaning? i.e. christmas, thanksgiving, halloween (and whatever other holiday your country celebrates)

Is there any way to dial straight into a (Sprint) voicemail?

I know how to do it on T-Mobile, but I HAVE T-Mobile, so I think it's different.

What's up is that I want to respond to something that was said about me online; I don't want to be juvenile and respond online, but there's really nothing that needs to happen after I'm like, "Uh, it's not what you think." There needs to be no further conversation, I just don't want to respond online. Thus, I just want to leave a voicemail.

ETA: I just called and (as expected, really) she didn't answer. I left a voicemail. However, I did find out that if you call your voicemail and press two (at least, this is true on Sprint and T-Mobile), you can send a voice message directly to someone on your network. Okay!

How hard is it to gain 3~4 pounds in 3~4 days?

I went from 111 to 115 pounds in 3 days and I'm wondering if my scale suddenly broke or... I'm just gaining weight like a monster. I don't eat much besides cereal sometimes for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, then a small dinner that involves some type of meat and veggies, then a bowl of chips mixed somewhere during the evening. I guess I'll have to go to a friend's house and use their scale tomorrow to see what's up... gah.

*is not pleased with self* Thanks guys, I feel normal now :D

can you take snacks on a plane? I know no liquids over 3 oz. but I didn't see anything about food. And, do you think I need to put my lipgloss in the plastic bag for screening, or can it just stay in my purse?

I really love music from the mid to late 90's probably because that's when I started developing my own taste in music

I move in (to my dorm) Sunday, and I had stuff to do/get in order before I left, so I told my work I wouldn't be able to come in and now I'm functionally jobless; I have a lot of time on my hands.

I really want to see that Jane Austen movie, and our local theater has shows during the week that are only six dollars. I'm sortof sick of most of my friends right now (ONE: does that ever happen to you?) and I don't think they'd enjoy the movie very much anyway ('cause I'm a huge nerd). TWO: Is it lonely or pathetic to go to a movie alone? THREE: What other things do you like to do when you are alone-but-not-lonely?

Shirt

I found this shirt in a plus size catalog. It would be perfect for my friend, but she needs a smaller size. Any clue where I could get a shirt like this?
