eggs erroneous

i've got a bunch of flatmates, one or several of whom are food thieves. i'm trying to devise a few ways (non fatal, plz) to pay them back for their thievery. so far i'm planning on mixing some salt into milk, but i can't think of anything else good. they've also helped themselves to my cheese and hummus, but i assume they'd take anything they thought looked tasty and that their annoying asses didn't pay for.

SO, got any ideas for nasty food-related payback, tqc?

I don't think this has been asked lately HERE, I think I saw something related on topicless. So.

How do you CURB your cravings? For food that is.
lol I can hardly ever stop myself from eating 24/7 and it's getting annoying. We don't have any good food left.

If you don't, what's your favorite thing to snack on?!

Also have you ever noticed how I post two comments in reply to everyone because I screw up so much on my first try? I just noticed that I do that a lot. lol

Holy buckets. Here, have a rambling late night post :P

When I was little I pretty much thought that Sylvester Stallone was the hottest thing ever, despite the fact that he had some form of paralysis on the left side of his face causing that characteristic sneer. Now, I think Milo Ventimiglia is omg hawt stuff lol, and only NOW do I find out that he actually has no nerve endings in the lower left of his lip, causing him to sneer, for lack of a better word.

And Milo is Rocky's son in the last Rocky movie! This seems...incestuous. EDIT A: maybe not incestuous but it definitely seems weird in some way

Should I be totally creeped out by this, TQC?

EDIT B: Yeah, I probably need a life, but I'll get one tomorrow and if I make no sense it's because I am so tired I'm on the verge of hallucinating :P

Okay, this weekend an angry drunk asshat decided to punch the monitor on my laptop, which obviously made it completely useless aside from a bit of the side that still works. So, where do you think would be the best place to start looking into getting my monitor on my laptop (which is an HP) replaced. Fixing it I doubt is an option with how bad it is. So do you think I should start with a call to HP about sending it in to get a new monitor or do you think a computer repair place would be a better place to start? The warranty on the computer is expired, so there's no issues with having it be that only HP can repair it to keep from voiding a warranty.

I'm not too enthused about the possibility of needing to call HP because they're never helpful anyway, but if that's where I should start, I'll suck it up and do it. :p

this might seem like an odd question

8:11 PM 8/7/07 · Flipping channels and I come across the 2nd Spidey movie and I noticed something. It's the fight scene with Doc Ock that Aunt May was involved in and they're slugging it out like gangbusters...

...even May got in a good shot.

I'm not sure if I ever noticed this before or not but His·Multiple·Limbedness doesn't seem to land a single punch. He only hits Spidey with his mechanical arms.

Does Doctor Octopus ever hit Spidey with his actual hands anywhere in this film?

YouTube Pranks

What do you think of these "fire in the hole" pranks on YouTube?

(Basically, they're people that go through drive-thrus and when they receive their drinks, they throw the drink back at the fast food worker while saying "Fire in the hole!" Here is a compilation of some of the videos. Here is a news report that features a video, since all the prank vids are being pulled now.)

What's the last thing you can remember seeing that wasn't meant to be obscene or funny, but you giggled anyway?

I have this word on the tip of my tongue, and I can't figure out exactly what it is.
What is the word for something happening at exactly the right time it should?
Edit: This word will be used in a letter for my work, so it's a more scholarly word, I think.

loaded question I suppose..

I am curious. 

I've seen a lot of people who are of no particular religious affiliation - agonstics, wiccans, etc - say that they have read and appreciate the "teachings of Jesus" and that they think he was a good man or perhaps a prophet?

Here's what I don't understand about that pov; if you read through what Christ said, he doesn't really preach a way of life like other religions leaders...he preaches himself. If someone doesnt believe that he is who he says he is then he really sounds like an egotistical ass or a maniac who performs miracles. I mean...he's constantly saying "you can not do anything apart from me, you can not get anywhere but through me" etc etc...

So anyone out there know what sense it makes to say I don't believe a word he says but he was a really good man and I incorporate his teachings in my life along with all the other religions?

I'm getting married in October. My stepmom decided last night that she wants to throw me a bridal shower, and I'm supposed to draw up a guest list for her. Should I include people that I know won't be able to make it, like my almost-MIL and SIL? My MIL lives in TX, and the SIL goes to school in OK, so they're making pretty elaborately planned special trips just for the weekend of the wedding. But.. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, because I'd be happy if they did/could come... and I also don't want to seem like I'm just trying for more gifts or something. What would you do, TQC?

So my bank continuously screws me out of money. I always check my balance, and yesterday it said I was at $25.00, with a $24.00 available balance. I really don't trust them, as they've been wrong before. However I spent 4 dollars on some fruit and 1 dollar on a candybar. I check today, and it says I'm -50 dollars. I call the bank, and they're like "Oooh... you've been spending when you don't have any money. And that's a 23 dollar penalty. Sorry. *Click*"

Now I'm really upset, as my manager cut my hours to 10 a week, which means my paycheck is already less than 130 dollars. I don't even have enough money for gas for the next two weeks because of them.

This is the fourth time this has happened within the past 3 months. I'm tired of it. Do most banks do this? Or is mine just a shithole?

Do you like jalapenos? I love them but they burn my asshole coming out and that's lame.

What about banana peppers? They're super tasty.

If you don't like either, do you at least like bell peppers?


Do you ever assume that someone in TQC is talking about someone you know?

Like, I just realized that whenever I read a post where somone is describing some awful thing their ex did to them, I sometimes think, "Heh. [my evil ex] apparently dated her, too."
Or if they are talking about some friend who did them wrong once, I'll think, "I bet they're talking about [some person I used to know who was a jerk in a similar way to me]."

Edit: Hm. Apparently I am a unique and beautiful snowflake. And paranoid.

I like Anime and I'd like to see some more, but I was at the DVD store today and there's just too many to choose from D:

So, tell me, if you like anime, what are some of your favourites? (It can be movies or a TV series)

I haven't seen many, only Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champoo, Bubblegum Crisis, and Howl's Moving Castle.


Is this a reasonable price for that TV? We're trying to sell it, but we don't know what to ask. This isn't intended to be shameless self promotion because 99% of you can't come over and pick it up, anyway, unless you're fleurdelista. :P

We probably all know it's usually easier to criticize than praise or compliment.  Even so...

Do you remember to pay a compliment when it's warranted?  Or do you sometimes figure it's not worth the bother or may not be appreciated?

Is there anyone due a compliment from you that you haven't given?  If so, who and why haven't you done so?
If they happen to be in tqc, will you share it with them now, please?

Can you think of your most favorite compliment that you've ever given? - please tell us what it was.

1) I've just been informed that, even if you sign an organ donor card, your family can override it if they don't want to donate your organs. Why is this?

2) I have been saving money over the summer. Right now I've got $1500. By the end of the summer, I'll probably have a little more than $2000. I also have a credit card bill with about $1000 left on it. It's 0% interest through January. I've been paying between $100 and $200 on it monthly. Right now, I'm working a temp job that will end in November, and I have no idea how long it will take to find something else. So my question for financial-minded people is, which would be wisest? Pay it all off right now, keep paying what I have been until January, or something else? Will one option save me more money in the long run, or does it not matter at all?

1. Would you rather read a book about:

a) A normal person in extreme circumstances?
b) A bunch of lunatics in everyday circumstances?
c) A normal person surrounded by lunatics in everyday circumstances?

2. Is it possible for a book about racism to be funny, intelligent and engaging, or is it too much of a hot-button topic?

3. What about if the book was about the hypocrisy often found in racism, i.e. people claiming that it is their race rather than their actions as the reason they are in trouble thereby calling other people racists because of it? Or people claiming special privileges based on their race, religion, culture, etc.? Would this book be taken in the manner intended or would this again be such a hot-button issue that people would simply have a kneejerk reaction and call it racist?

How should I refer to my ... person?

I've known her since primary school, we became best friends later, we went out, broke up, moved in together, got back together, are engaged (but don't have a ring).

Girlfriend sounds ... like I'm negating all of our previous friendship.
Fiance is weird because, well, we can't get legally married right now, and don't plan to get any sort of married for a few years, plus the no rings.

Best friend doesn't mention the relationship.

Housemate is good for many instances, but kinda sounds hollow.

A Party for this fussy boo baby.

So I'm throwing a party / cook out to celebrate Benjamin. Since my baby shower got hijacked, I'm enjoying planning and doing it all myself. I don't throw parties often but when I do, I like to be creative with it - maybe a little theme but it's already a cookout and I want it to be cheap because I'm more broke than I've ever been!

My only actual question is regaurding the invites. I'm sending them via email; should I send an e-vite or should I create one myself via Power Point? (I'm damn good with Power Point if I do say so) But my worry with that is that some people may not be able to open it because they'd have to have PP on their computer I think.

To all the rat owners on TQC --

I own a baby jumbo rat (yeah yeah, jumbo is a feeder term. I'll let you know when I start to care) who is insanely active. While I adore him and play with him often (he wrestles my fingers, it's SO cute) I'm setting up a playpen of sorts for him in my unused bathtub so he can have some (supervised) time outside of his cage while I do school work. What sort of toys/enrichment things do you suggest? I have a huge ball of twine that I don't use and it's all unraveled. Is twine okay for rats, should he eat some?? I currently have an empty pringles can that he loves to race through and a small, wooden jungle-gym type thing which he's quickly growing out of.

another pet question:\

Sorry, i'm always asking dog questions. I had a scare last night...took my dog to a field I always take him to. Kept him on his leash for a while to get used to meeting these two dogs (one of which he's met many times before). He has had a few situations where another dog would go in the playful bow, and then chase after him, and his tail will automatically go down and he'll keep running the opposite direction. Last night, I figured *this is the same lady that was able to get him used to her dog* and she kept saying it'll be fine, I should let him loose. (i'm not saying it's her fault at all) I just felt comfortable about letting him loose, and there he went, dashing across the field with his tail down and out the gate opening, completely ignoring my calls. LUCKILY he made it straight home without getting hit by a car. Obviously I don't want that to ever happen again.

Do you have any experience with insecure dogs? What did you do to get them used to meeting (bigger dogs, ones they're afraid of)? Is there any way to know for sure, once I let him off the leash, he isn't going to freak out and run away again?

I've heard if you don't eat at LEAST 1200 calories a day, your body goes into starvation mode. Ive also heard that 1200 calories is the bare minimum/lowest amount for women that you should ever eat. Your body needs at least that just to function.

All that being said, is it harmful to eat around 1200 calories a day, everyday, no matter what? No matter if you exercised a ton, or didnt, or ect?

Would one still lose weight, or if one was active (say, they worked out 3-6 days a week and had a waitressing job) would they really be not eating enough eating 12-1300 calories a day? (at an average height/weight, say, 5'4", 115 lbs)

Does anyone know how a severe dyscalculia sufferer can learn to play music? I have a really neat keyboard with light up keys, but learning notes is beyond me, and I really want to learn to play. Is there some way to learn how to play by ear?

1. What's your opinion on oral sex? (I'm mainly interested in the 'giving' part, albeit that doesn't rule out the discussion of receiving :¬) )

2. What does/did losing your virginity mean to you? I.e. Was it a 'big' thing? Or did you not let it bother you too much? &c &c.

My boyfriend's sister is getting married (either next month or the one after, I can't remember) but won't be having a ceremony for it. My boyfriend says that this means they're eloping. I say they aren't eloping because everyone knows about it. Which one of us is right (or closer to it)?

The wedding is just going to be them saying their vows in front of a judge and then having a little celebration at the house. The family keeps hinting at me being involved in this somehow, but  I honestly don't know how I'd be 'involved'. Any ideas?

And when two loud, obnoxious people have kids, will their kids be loud and obnoxious? I'm just imagining how noisy their house would be and not looking forward to it D:

What has freaked you out lately?

I just found a fat spider and since my husband wouldn't come remove it from the house I'm dogsitting in, I had to do it myself. I got a big wad of tissue and grabbed it when THIRTY FUCKING BABY SPIDERS SHOT OUT OF IT AND CRAWLED ALL OVER.

How did you react?
I nearly pissed myself! I killed all the babies because they were too small to grab up. This makes me sad but it really freaked me out and I'm sure the neighbors think the dogsitter was just murdered. I'm still shuddering from it.

My boyfriend got back from Hawaii today and included in the swag he brought back for me were 2 sarongs. They're very nice and I've always loved sarongs, but I've never owned one before. I'm very excited about having them and would like some cool ideas on what to do with them.

TQC, what are your favorite ways to tie sarongs? Instructions and/or pictures are very much appreciated.

What's the coolest souvenir anyone has gotten for you?

more sex questions!

me: I'm a virgin.
girl: Still? (I'm 19.)
me: I've just not had the chance to lose it, really.
girl: Oh, just get really really wasted and go for it. Just with some random guy. That's what I did!
2nd girl: Me too!

Is this:

a) Really how "most people" lose it, TQC?
b) In any way a good or rational method of doing so?

BONUS: Are there any situations you'd feel uncomfortable in specifically if you were in them with a person you knew to be a virgin (with other 'fellow' non-virgins around as well)? And would you feel uncomfortable for yourself or for the virgin?

What do you consider "losing your virginity" to involve?

What about in same-sex relationships?

If it's different, why?

It doesn't make sense to me that if my first serious sexual experience involved insertion of fingers and tongues and was lesbian, I'd have lost my virginity, but if it was with a guy, I wouldn't have (according to most definitions).

What product do you love but can't find anymore?

I really like Lick-A-Color popsicles but I can't find them in my area. No one seems to carry them anymore except ice cream trucks in Brooklyn. I also really loved Dunkaroos. The last time I bought them was maybe 4-5 years ago but I saw them at a corner grocery on Coney Island a few weeks ago. I miss them sooo much.

Oh and if someone knows the name of these please tell me. I think they were snackwells or something, but it was a bar of like spongey chocolate with creamy chocolate in the middle with white frosting drizzled on top and they were awesome but I haven't had them since elementary school (12? years ago). They were sooooooo delecious.

ugh I love food.
