What was your interpertation of it? And also, with that storyline with the guy who had the dream with the guy in the back of Winkie's, what do you think the significance of that was?
Chat is killing TQC.
You see what I did there.
THERE IS NO QUESTION. THIS POST SHOULD BE DELETED.
Do you buy DVD box sets of your favorite television shows?
If so, what shows do you own? Which seasons?
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1-7), Angel (1-3), Scrubs (1), The Sentinel (1), Supernatural (1), The OC (1), Firefly (1).
What box sets do you plan on purchasing in the future?
Angel (4-5), Eerie Indiana, Psych (1), Heroes (1), Supernatural (2).
Are there any online and accredited universites/colleges that offer BA degrees in English or Liberal Arts?
Do you have one?
Would you like one? (not mine)
Have you ever stalked an ex?
Does checking their MySpace/Facebook/LJ/Xanga/whatever every day considered stalking?
Are you wearing a shirt right now?
If not, why?
Do you like fajitas?
What about nachos?
What is your favorite cheese?
2. How long until he pees on my head?
3. Would it be mean to keep him, or should I just let him go back outside and be free?
4. He looks sort of like a less fat version of the toad in the main picture of this wiki article. So how long do that type of species usually live? The wiki article doesn't say.
5. I caught a bullfrog as a kid and kept him as a pet for a year before I returned him to where I first caught him. What is the probability he died a few days later because he was used to getting fed crickets instead of catching them?
if you are, do you think jackie and fez are still together, or do you think jackie and hyde came to their senses and got together, anyway?
I'm in a bit of a pickle.
There is this guy and I really have a thing for him. Problem is, he is extremely shy and always talks bad about himself. It's really bad; if I try to complement him, he says something to counter the complement. And he's always like, "why do you wanna do ______ (put a word there) with a guy like me, i'm nothing special." He's like that with everyone, and most people will laugh along and kind of agree with him, but I feel awful about it. How do you suggest I go about trying to make a move? Should I even bother? I don't think he's used to anyone actually being interested in him.
Oh, and, how do you say enjolras?
Like books and music, that sort of thing. And food, I guess.
I like Anna Karenina and I like Mussorgsky. Balalaikas are cool and so is Korobeiniki. And I like the Cyrillic alphabet. And Russian accents.
a) the day after tomorrow
b) in two days
(IE: "When do you get paid?" "The day after tomorrow." vs. "When do you get paid?" "In two days.")
I think they're super spiffy! I got ebola, sleeping sickness, the plague, mad cow, flesh eating disease, bookworm, and the soap dispenser :D
would you refuse to marry someone unless you lived with them first? why or why not?
Can you help me get it back?
Edit: It seems to have fixed itself. It turned the iBook off and back on again (which gave me a grey screen with a spinning wheel for much longer than it usually does) and the sound is working again.
If you made the decision to wait until you were older, what led to that decision?
what do they do that pisses you off?
I work in a kitchen with this "woman" who thinks she's soooo hot when she wears short shorts and tiny tee's. The woman is at least 300 lbs. and it's disgusting.
Thanks in advance!
any of you planning to participate in the 2007 Burning Man Festival?
if so, would anyone be interested in meeting other TQC folks?
if not, wtf? not interested? too expensive? explain plz??
ahhh! i'm going nuts getting all my costumes and shtuff ready...

Do you mind your own business? 1 being not at all. 10 being at all times.
what do you think it means? drink more?
2. WHO IN YOUR LIFE CAN YOU NOT RESIST BUYING THINGS FOR, EVEN WHEN THEY'RE NOT ASKING YOU TO BUY SOMETHING FOR THEM?
3. DO YOU HAVE A FAN CLUB? DO YOU THINK YOU SHOULD?
4. MY BEST FRIEND'S BROTHER BEAT HER UP AND HER FIANCE DID NOT GO KICK HIS ASS. AM I WRONG FOR WANTING TO KICK THE ASS OF BOTH THE BROTHER AND THE FIANCE? (BONUS QUESTION: FIANCE OR FIANCEE FOR A MALE? I CAN'T REMEMBER.)
ALSO, YOU'RE ALL WHORES.
I read Questionable Content, Butternutsquash, and Punch 'n' Pie. I used to read Queen of Wands before it ended.
what's the current time where you are?
pretend you are going to torture someone, how will you go about this?
I always go to the back because we have a little narrow deep elevator. Someone on the 9th or 10th floor always refuses to move though, and it's awkward to squish past them if I've got my arms full of garbage or something.
If you live in an apartment, what floor do you live on?
8th floor, but it's really the 9th story, since the bottom level isn't numbered.
If you've had to learn a foreign language and take courses (not in high school or college) for it, how much did you pay?
I'm looking at Dutch classes and they're horrifically expensive. I think I'm going to have to start selling drugs or something to pay for them.
Does your car have a name?
When debating/arguing/catfighting/snarking online and the person with whom you are debating/arguing/catfighting/snarking stops replying, do you think:
Let's say you are in the grocery store or anywhere but the club, minding your own business and you turn and catch a man checking out your ass. The man seeing he got caught instantly becomes a two-year old with his hand caught in the cookie jar and quickly turns away.
Is your reaction based on how the person looks? or Are you instantly disgusted by his candor to look at your ass?
2. do your dreams tend to be related to each other? (like you'd have a dream that feels like the continuation of another)
3. what do you think your dream means?
( Collapse )
What helps keep you awake when you need to?
Edit* any recommendations on specific caffeine pills?
why does diarrhea smell worse?
2. What are some good DARK GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES that can be found in Australia that will be good for juicing? E.g., in America we have mustard greens, collard greens, chard...none of which we seem to have in Australia.
3. What is your favorite juice recipe?
4. Do you find that Australian organic produce is much nicer than its commercial counterpart? I have heard that in America it has 3-5 times more nutrients, but I feel as though Australian commercial produce is of a much higher quality than American.

Do/did your parents call one another "Mom/Dad" when referring to one another? (even when not speaking to you)
Do you/your SO call one another this?
What do you think of couples who do?
But it's been so long since I've been on the market I'm not sure what I'm looking for. I have long, thick hair and want it to lay nice and flat and shiny... Garnier used to do that for me, but... well, you know how it goes. And under no circumstances do I want a product that will make my hair "fuller" or "thicker"... trust me, I don't need to be treated like that. I won't stand for it.
So based on all of that, what shampoo/conditioner should I be looking for, TQC?
What was it for?
Any particular reason you made it?
Can I see?
If you haven't made any, what are your favourites?
If you could put something else on this onsie, what would it be? (symbol, picture, other words)
It says something like "I never meant to hurt you, but I did it anyway, hey, hey, hey" or "yeah yeah" Something like that. I searched for the lyrics and all I found was Eminem and R Kelly. That isn't it. Does anyone know what it is? Thanks.
b) do you know anyone with a really whiny voice?
c) do you know anyone that whenever they talk it's like they're whispering more than actually talking?
who do you know whose phone # starts with a 7?
who do you know whose phone # starts with a 6?
These are like mini golf trips, rollerblade trips, bicycle trips, skiing trips, and other parties or events. When I send Evites, I get replies from some people, and they don't reply to a personal email or phone call. And I also have the reverse happen, but I am curious what people hate or like about the above types of invites.
What was it?
I just found out a girl I know, who generally irritates the living hell out of me, was the person who lead to the creation of GodHatesIreland.Com, and I can't help but hate her a little less.
I do fingersticks on about 40 people a day and I can't tell you how many of them jerk their hand back before I can even put the lancet near their finger.
Are you grumpy, too, TQC?
Does your answer change if webcams are involved?
What would you do if you caught your SO cybering?
2) Have you ever been a tropical storm or hurricane?
3) Do you ever think of awesome questions to ask while lying in bed, but then you wake up in the morning and you've forgotten what they were?

I knew, that american system of secondary education is bad, but I've never thought it is SO BAD.
You know, there are some americans in our town, they are mormons. I visited their meetings, and noticed, that they do a lot of grammatic mistakes and have poor knowledges in geography. And when I mentioned Athens, one of that guys exlaimed: "Athens? Oh, Italy!". :))) Another one wrote "dolor" instead of "dollar". :))) Sometimes I thought: "they must be kidding, that's a joke", but I understood later, that they really knew nothing. All of them were "anglosaxsons" from normal families of the middle class. (I mean, the illiteracy of "afroamericans" and "latinoamericans" can be explained by their life in criminal ghetto and all that, you know.)
2) have you had chest pains before? right at the sternum? what became of your pain?
3) what height are the socks you're wearing today?
What would the magic slipper look like?
Would you try and get your foot into it and pretend it was comfortable?
Did you go shopping to get new clothes for college?
I don't want to change my number, but every few weeks or go, I get around 10-15 calls for this guy. This has been going on since January. His callers are dumb - I tell them they have the wrong number but they call back a while later and say, "Oh...oh yeah I forgot. Sorry!"
2. How many Twinkies would it cost to get someone to go over to Kenneth's house and kick him in the balls?
2. I have a pair of sling back shoes that are always slipping down in the back. Is there any way that I could keep them from doing so without, say, the use of duct tape?
3. Why can't you give me the respect that I'm entitled to? Why can't you treat me like I would be treated by any stranger on the street?
Things they already do:
-sell candy bars
-sell ice cream
-sell Krispy Kreme donuts
They are looking for both selling ideas as well as event ideas.
What sort of fund raising happened at your school that you loved (or didn't work so well, even)?
Do any of you love one of a pair of identical twins (or triplets or more if you prefer)?
Are you attracted to both of them?
Do they worry about the fact that their partners could be attracted to both of them? Or worry about inadequacy or something? (even though I assume it's about the personality as well, do they worry that since you find them hot, you might prefer their twin's personality?)
Can you tell them apart?
Were you friends with both of them first? If you were friends with both first, why'd you pick one of them over the other for a relationship?
Any of you who aren't (or are, if you want) actually dating/married to a twin but are friends, have you ever been friends with one of them more than the other, then due to some sort of circumstances, got closer to the other one instead?
Anyone here dated one of a pair of twins, then due to circumstances, ended up dating the other one? Why? Did that bother you?
I doubt many people will be able to answer any of these but I thought I'd ask anyway!
Where are you from?
Is it a cultural thing?
the government says that it will be able to look anywhere, but it can not see faces, or hear anything. (or so they are saying.)
Invasion of privacy? or a good idea?
EDIT: another question completely unrelated..
I want this tattoo.. cute or no?
I have the worst skin on my face of all time. Blacheads, pimples, occasionally a big creepy cystic pimple, etc. I finally have health insurance, but it's only "sick care" and I don't think "Horrible acne" is a disease.
Right now, this is what I do:
AM: Cream cleanser, the kind that makes your face ~tingly~ or some BS
Thin coat of Adult Clearasil (the kind with sulphur on it) which keeps my face from getting oily during the day
PM: Cream cleanser.
I am 22 years old and I'm tired of being pizza face. Plz to help, TQC MD. I'm already on the pill, so no need to suggest that.
Please do co then sarahonlife will start a fan club for me!
I'm traveling from the Youngstown, OH area on 80 East through PA where we'll pick up 79 North, and then 90 East. From then on we're in New York on 90 East, then 290 West, then 190 North. Our hotel is in Niagara Falls, NY.
Anyone know of anything along this route that's not too far off the highway - say, no more than 30 min? I've done a little googling but it's not yieliding much and I know that locals from those areas will know the good stuff. Anything?
I have an iPod with video and some DVD's that I want to load onto it. Somebody gave me these links for DVDShrink and Videora to do it. I got the DVD's ripped onto my computer using the DVDShrink, but I can't get them converted so I can put them on my iPod.
When I ripped the DVD's, they were saved to a folder with the title of the DVD and a bunch of files inside (screencap). There's not "a" file that I can select to convert to put on my iPod; it's a whole folder... and I can't convert the folder, either.
What am I supposed to do? PLEASE help me, I have no idea what's going on.
Here's what I have so far.
Free 411 service: Self-explanatory. Only catch is having to listen to a short advertisement.
Rejection Hotline: Automated message telling any caller that the person who gave the number does not want to date him/her.
FreeConference - Free Conference calls.
TellMe - A recorded voice invites you to say “Travel,” “Traffic,” “News Center,” “Stock Quotes,” and so on. The system is smart enough to know your location, which pays off when you say “Movies,” “Restaurants,” “Driving directions” or “Taxi.” (This service, run by Tellme Networks as a showcase for its corporate voice-recognition technology, also lets you say “Time” when you’re setting your watch. 800-555-TELL (800-555-8355)*
Free International Calls (Good only thru 2010) - call any of 50 countries from the United States, free. Talk as long as you like. You pay only for a call to the access number in Iowa, which is 712-858-8883; if you use your cellphone on nights or weekends, even that’s a free call. There’s no contract, no ads, nothing to sign up for. At the prompt, press 1 for English. Then punch in 011, the country code and the phone number. The call rings through immediately. However, in some countries, you can reach only landlines, not cellphones. And in part because FuturePhone’s lines have been flooded, its success at placing calls is not, ahem, 100 percent.*
I'll be updating this post as new finds come in.

so, i'm not allowed to eat anything, drink alcohol, or smoke. i'm in a stunning amount of pain. there's nothing on TV.
totally bored. what should i do?
I just got back to school and found out from co-workers that not only did our store manager get fired for not agreeing to certain terms (he's a great guy, I would hate to work for anyone else), but the new company also installed listening devices near the cash registers to listen in on employees conversations.
1) Are these listening devices legal?
2) Would you work for a place that had listening devices installed?
3) Do you think it's strange that a convenience store would be so interested in their employees conversations? (Considering we get paid just above minimum wage...)
Have you ever had a painful sneeze?
Also, I get several nosebleeds every week... they're relatively short, but annoying. What could be causing that?
What does it say?

(My recent favourite was IMBROKE on a Benz)
2. Would you ever get a carpeted kitchen?
3. I always feel guilty after I spend money on things I want (rather than need), even if I'm not strapped for cash. Do you ever feel that way?
Where should I go for dinner?
I've never been to Steak N' Shake, and I will probably be having IHOP on Sunday.

I quit a job that stressed me out so much I became known as "the crybaby."
- Favourite mascara?
- Do you have any other makeup "must-haves"? What are they?
When it comes to makeup, I am extremely basic... lipgloss and nothing else. On the odd special occasion, I'll wear mascara. Now, I have Maybelline's Great Lash mascara but don't find it to be all it's cracked up to be - within an hour, I have panda eyes from it! Eek! Show me the way to a better mascara!
i'm sad. i still haven't found a job, Ronaldo got red carded and banned 3 games and i lost $3 :(
You have a 10 year old daughter, and she frequently goes on holiday with her friend (who is a year younger) and her parents. One time she comes home, and during the course of the conversation she reffers to her friends father as "Daddy" realising her mistake she adds "Oh, Andy makes us call him daddy. Me and Beth and Claire (his wife)." How do you react?
Our daughter can't figure out why we have a problem with this.
So, IS this something I (and in particular my husband who fought long and hard to be 'daddy' to my kids) should have a problem with?
Do men frequently insist on being called daddy by everybody?!?!?
My big sister who is "Mz Worst Case Scenario" now thinks this man is a pervert. Do you think he is?
Should we ban our daughter from going on holiday with them?
*cross posted to parenting comms, well duh!*
I am a natural-born citizen of the United States of America.
I have been watching several British, Scottish, and Irish Films recently and have noticed something abou a curse word:
There is no definitive country associated with the usage of the word "shit". Some of the international films say the vulgar term differently.
I'm curious as to which cultures or which countries pronounce "shit" as "shyte" and which pronounce them as as "shit".
Is it about you?
How vain are you?
Do you like Carly Simon?

I just really like breakup songs. Like "Ciao!" by Lush and "Everything Back But You" by Avril and "I Will Survive" and things of that nature and I hope that's not weird.
I tend to bite the dentist. I have to concentrate not to chew on his thumb.

WHAT'S THE SONG???
It's driving me crazy.
jazzypoetrock is winnar.
This is stuff that absolutely does not belong out in the other rooms - clothing, board games, etc.
(I'm trying to figure out where to put all of his crap. Preferably out of sight so that I can have guests over. And he's working until late, so calling him to ask is out of the question.)
2. For any of you who've been to/live in Dublin, what are some things I absolutely shouldn't miss while I'm there? What are the best places to hang out? I've been reading guidebooks and stuff, but you know, it's not the same. I'll be traveling to other places in Ireland too while I'm there, so pretty much anything you have to say about Ireland would be interesting.
2. What is the most random thing you have ever received in the post?
3. Do you like true crime stories? Which are your favourites?
4. Do you take vitamins every day? What kind?
im trying to buy new cd before the school starts and im torn between the two.
what's your favorite ice cream?
when you have ice cream at home (not like, a sundae from a store) do you eat it from the carton or do you scoop it into a bowl?
The family is not coming home until Sunday, so is there anything I can do now, or is it even a huge deal since it was only in the house for about 5 minutes?
EDIT: I should have mentioned, the kids are not home--I'm literally just house-sitting and taking care of the tortoises.
Have you ever read The Catcher in the Rye? Did you love it and could you totally relate to what Holden was all about? Or did you hate it and fail to understand all the hype surrounding it?
What do you think about Hannah Montana?
I think they're wonderful. Wtf, hardboiled is a word?

So, TQC, what makes your favorite bartender so good?
What brings you back to a bar?
What are some drinks YOU think every bartender should know?
Oh, and how do you get motivated to write a paper? I have an 8 page one due tomorrow. I've done all the research, have an outline, etc... I just can't seem to get myself to actually write it.
I just moved 1800 miles for school. I don't regret my decision, but I've been here two weeks and I'm starting to get lonely and I am having trouble finding a job. School doesn't start for a couple of weeks and I don't have a lot of money. :( Do any of you New Jersey TQCers want to be my friend!?!?
Any good at it?
Do you play for real money, or just free online places? If real money, what's the most you've won, and what kind of game was it (with friends, in a casino, etc)?
Ever watch it on TV?
No, I haven't given any such offers.
