I'm really tired of being the goody two-shoes in my group of friends who they just kinda smile and pat on the head and call cute all the time. I wanna be hardcore. Can you help me be hardcore?
2. What's your favorite kind of powdered drink mix?
- I just got a sewing machine (it's a long story but my grandmother bought her for me). I've named her David Bowie.
- My car is named Veronica (she's a Nissan Versa... oh, my friends are so clever).
EDIT: another question.
What are some ridiculous fears of yours?

I realized that if I could find earrings that are cute, but where the part that touches my ear is plastic, it would save the day cuz I'm allergic to all metals including gold. I'm surprised this isn't a common alternative, cuz I've just never been able to wear earrings (I mean, since I was 6).
Thanks in advance! ^_^
Where are you living right now?
What was your favorite thing to do or favorite place to go back home, and what/where is it now?
2.) What the hell should I do with my hair? I'm open to anything, I'm just so bored of it.

Does anyone have any programs to rip music onto your computer from a website that only lets your stream it?
2. Pie or cake?
3. Favorite Jones flavor?
My girlfriend claims that this is beyond normal relationship cruelty.
So if any of you have it, or if you don't and you can imagine yourself in my shoes anyway, what do you do about finding new lovers, whether short or long term? I just got out of a serious long-term relationship (and by "got out of" I mean "I was dumped by my boyfriend and it really fucking sucks"), and I'm imagining myself in bars saying to people, "Well, before you take me home, you might want to know there's a 1% chance I can give you the herp. Still interested?" No thank you. Not a conversation I want to have.
If you were me, how would you work with this problem? How would you bring it up to people? Would you go anywhere specific to meet people in the same boat, if such a place exists? Would you just keep trying and hope to find someone who doesn't care?
So, how about that storm we're getting? I have a wonderful front-row view of the storm from my bedroom window. I haven't seen anything like this in at least a year.
i know it isn't much help that the person i live with is making as much noise as they possibly can at this hour but i think by the time i killed them it would be time for me to get up.
Anyway, my point is, I am 18 and going into college, and Todd, my friend from Hs when I was in 9th-11th grade, is 22 and starting community college next spring, and I was talking to him about this.
Does a college degree get considered when you are dating someone?
(I decided it does with most of those kids from HS, except Todd, because he is a really hardworker, has lived on his own for 4 years, has a HOUSE, and a crapload of money from working 2 jobs. I really think it depends on the person. Drama kid is 21, wants to join the Marines because he 'needs the money' and lives at home, tuba player is a douche/volunteer fireman/bagger at Wal-Mart, guitarist is in the Army, science major lives at home, and journalist is in the Army. Those options all seem questionable to me, I want a man who can support a family, you know? Living at home at nearly 22 isn't attractive to me)
Background: my wife is European and is used to using epilators instead of shaving or waxing to remove hair. I was/am under the impression that epilators aren't used much in the US; but since I'm a guy and don't really know this, I can be totally off.
So.. what does everyone use for hair removal? (and unless it's just completely obvious, please tell me if you're a guy or a girl :)
EDIT: Also, how often do you use said procedure?
So where do you get your pillows, and what are they stuffed with?
I'm always satisfied with paternity tests, but my hands-down favorites are what I've dubbed "That's a MAN, Maury!!!" episodes where he parades guests in front of the audience and everyone gets so upset becasue they can't figure out the person's sex.
If you're engaged and have purchased your wedding dress already, how often do you try it on? (Or, if you have been married, how frequently did you try your dress on?)
I try mine on about once a month. I still have 7 months until the wedding. Apparently I'm a big fluffy girly girl at heart.
Has your betrothed seen you in your dress? (Or, if you've been married, did they see you in the dress before the wedding?)
Is there any special reason why or why not?
Yes. I asked my fiance to come looking with me because I really needed an honest opinion and I didn't really trust the opinions I'd gotten from friends.
Question: Anyone know where I can get friends only banners which require no credit?
There's always one.
I asked "Woah, like Salami much?" (Cuz I is ironical like that) and he says "yes; I'm taking it to China with me."
which caused a major 0_o moment.
I ask you what I asked him
Does China not have Salami? (OH THE INHUMANITY!!!)
His answer: "No, China has no salami"
Was this guy yanking my chain?
DOES China have NO salami?
(this may be the most inane question I have ever asked, but I am SERIOUSLY curious!)
So, TQC, what's troubling you?
Where can I find that thing that you spray into your keyboard that gets rid of all the junk underneath the keys? I think I might have seen it on TV once. Is there a name for it and does anyone have it?
We have two ice cube trays. They are, for all intents and purposes, identical to each other. However, one of them makes perfectly normal, uniform ice cubes which pop out nicely. The other one does not--for some reason, no matter how much you fill it, what temperature water you use or if you stack it on top of or below the other tray, it ALWAYS makes cubes that stick and crumble when popping them out, resulting in deformed cubes and crushed ice bits with little ice crumbs stuck to the bottom of the molds. Giving it a thorough rinsing out to get rid of the stuck bits before refilling it does not help.
This really doesn't bother me (I'll survive, even with imperfect ice cubes, heh), but it boggles the shit out of me! So, the question is this: Anyone know why this is happening and/or how to fix it?
(in your opinion) do others around you?
what are your thoughts on this?
do you welcome change? (NOT MONIES)

What is your race/ethnicity?

Do you have any thoughts you'd like to share regarding this topic?
Edit: Where do you live?
The local news just told me that the majority of folks in my town are Hispanic. I'm White/Caucasian/Whatever. I thought it was pretty interesting. They had a whole bit about how businesses are trying to cater to the new official majority. That means more black bean soup and emapanadas for me!
I live in Houston/Pasadena (Texas).
Was ANY of it spelled right?
ETA: OK I just checked (while you were all posting comments telling me to go check... see I knew y'all were faster than me) and I didn't. I was too busy drunk chatting to post in TQC. LOL.
What kind/brand of hair straightener do you use? Does it work well? Has the texture of your hair changed from using a straightener? Do you have thicker or thinner hair? Which would you say is the best brand?
I'm thinking of getting a babyliss, is that a good idea? Do you recommend 1inch or 2inch plates?
ALSO! Do you use a heat protectant first?!!!
Simply put, how do we stop our otherwise lovely felines from scratching our furniture? We don't believe in declawing, and we've tried those plastic nail caps. They bite them off. We've stopped altogether with the firm 'NO' when we see it, because they're here alone for 8 hours a day and can do whatever the hell they please, so we think it's kinda pointless.
What's a girl to do?
EDIT: We have a scratching post. They just kinda stare at it.
did i jinx it? is it all my fault? i think so :(
Are you going to pursue it? Why or why not?
2)do you have any striped socks or socks with goofy stuff on them?
3)have you ever seen a snake anywhere other than in captivity? did you touch it/pick it up?

1. Why do brand new, newly purchased DVD's skip on both of my dvd players? ( Playstation 2 *stupid thin version ) and my regular few years old dvd player? Is it just too old? Did they come out with a new dvd format and no one told me?
The Host played just fine, But Accepted, Harry Potter, and countless others don't play well at all. And sometimes they will play just fine on one player, but won't on the other.
2. What impulse purchases did you make today?
2a. Harry Potter 1-3, Peter Pan, Galaxy Quest, Monster Squad, Orgazmo ( Movies ), Devil may Cry ( book ).
Do you hate bad puns?

1. Whats a good laptop these days? My current computer is a Sony VAIO but I've been looking at those new Dell laptops I've been hearing so much about.
2. My current computer has an Intel Pentium 4 with 2.GHz of speed. How do the Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core processor T2060 processors with 1.60GHz compare? I don't really use my computer for too much, I just want it to be fast.
What about in general?
What foods have you not tried that it seems like everyone else around you has had?
I've never had a 'fluffernutter' sandwich and it sounds kind of gross to me, so I'm not sure I ever will.

2. If so, has the dancing helped you to play baseball/softball?

2. Are there sports where this works better for? (For example, if you're good at Sport A, then you're definitely good at Sport B, but if you're good at Sport B, then that doesn't mean you're good at Sport C)
Is an ipod worth buying? I've heard unfavorable things regarding the battery life of an ipod, and was wondering, in your opinion, is an ipod worth it? Have you had any bad experiences with an ipod? I was thinking about purchasing either the 2 gb or 4 gb nano, if that makes a difference.
I'm picking up apricots, banana chips (I don't like the texture of fresh bananas), and low-sodium V8 juice this evening at the supermarket, but I'd love to know your favorite sources of the second least dense metal. Perhaps they'll serve as inspiration for me to expand my culinary horizons.
Well, Tammie and Patrick spent a grand total of $500,000 on their wedding. Here's a link to the page describing this episode.
So, my questions:
1) What is your reaction to someone spending half a 'mil on a wedding?
2) How much is an appropriate amount to spend?
3) If you are married, how much did your wedding cost?
I'm gay, so I can't get married (unless I move to Mass., which I never plan to do), so here's a bonus:
How does gay marriage negatively impact the marriages of straight couples who are adamantly against gay MARRIAGE?
Does being against gay marriage mean you are homophobic? Are the two synonymous?
Am I the only person in the entire world who hates questions that begin with "Am I the only person who.." ?
Surely, out of the billions of people on this planet and the millions upon millions who use the internet, I am the only one, right? I must be.

I am mildy sad, because the BF is gone for another week. So I decided I would drown my sorrows in chocolate. I am a dark chocolate fan, and thus bought me a bar of Lindt 85% cocoa dark chocolate. It was not great, which deepened my sadness. So my question is:
What is your favorite kind of chocolate? (If you do not like chocolate, I do not care to hear your blasphemous views! Heathens!)
i'm pretty sure i would if i ever became deformed (lost a leg, became paralyzed, became chubby, etc.) or lost my abilities to speak, hear, or see.

2. What are your plans for tonight?
I have to work :(
3. My sister went out of her way to make my birthday special. She's going through a rough patch with her boyfriend (who is also our roommate) and I would like to do something special for her. The problem is she is a micro manager and has already planned out her birthday. Good thing is she's celebrating her birthday on the weekend, rather than on the actual date. Any ideas? I'm drawing a blank here.
4. Current favorite article of clothing or accessory? Picture?
My favorites usually tend to change from day to day but right now my favorites are:
This charm bracelet. Its the cheapest one they have but still cute. And $5 sunglasses I got at Walgreens that resemble something my grams would have worn in the 60's. Ah well.
5. Has your SO ever shared a fantasy or fetish with you that you were just not willing to participate in/indulge? Please share details ;)
What was your summer work?
I'm trying to independent study it, and my Spanish teacher hasn't taught the course, ever, so I have no idea where to start. I tried apcentral, but I haven't gotten any responses... and it'd help if you took the new version (I think post-2003?) version of the exam.
Thanks in advance!

In the interest of helping myself and others become more entertaining tqcr’s –
What’s your favorite question that you yourself have posted to tqc?
Can you recall your favorite question that you’ve ever seen posted on tqc?
Do you more often prefer to ask very focused, specific questions,
or would you rather ask questions more broadly to appeal to a wider audience?
Other than ‘Please tell me how to fix this _____ (insert personal dilemma)’-type queries, how few responses does your post have to get before you feel like it was pretty much a dud of a question?
Extra: If a question bombs but you really wanted some feedback, do you try to rework it to improve and post at a later date, or do you let it die a quiet and (mostly) dignified death?
1a.) If so, do you like my new icon????

My grandmother and half of her sisters/sisters in law were in it. From what i've heard, it didn't have a name, because Jesus's disciples didn't have a group name. They don't have a church, because in the early days neither did Jesus. So they met in people's houses. They can't wear pants or cut their hair short (but they don't cover their hair), and it's women only. And... other than that, I don't know much about them at all. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
This is mine... but I'm disappointed that prior to that, I cleared out my gmail inbox. I've only ever emptied it once! So I should really have posts about 9 months older than that. Boo-hoo.

After some help and my own research we have:
Naiomi Watts (was never a major character anyway)
Carl Snell looks like he might do well in the future
Heath Ledger doesn't count because he already had a well established career
Michael Caton doesn't count for the same reason
Guy Pearce for the same reason
Danni Mongue because she's Kylie's sister, and Kylie is from Neighbours.
