A few weeks ago, someone posted a website in some comment thread with an archive of pictures of male celebrities in water or in wet clothes. ;) And now I want to show it to my friend, but I can't find it. When I google it I get a bunch of porn results. Does anyone know what website it was?

Also, I have to do an project in which I have to paint one of the leading painters of surrealism. Do you think it'd be more interesting to paint Frida Kahlo, or Magritte?

Job interview while pregnant.

Okay, so you may remember me, and you may not. Regardless, I'm 5 months pregnant. I have a job interview on Thursday, and you can pretty much tell I'm pregnant. My question is- to tell or not to tell?

I've been thinking about it, and I think the best idea is to be honest. I need money more than the other applicants because of my situation, I'd be willing to work as far as I can and take as little time as possible off, etc. So I think it may work towards my advantage, but obviously there's always the "it'd just be easier to hire someone who won't be taking time off" blah blah blah.

So tell? Don't tell?
Also, have you ever been in a similar situation, or know anyone that has? What happened?

Ps, I'm doing better now (if you remember my post from before).

Is there any reason why banks would be late updating today?

It usually shows up at midnight that I've been paid when I look. But it's almost 1AM and still nothing. Just wondering if this is a bank lag-issue or whether my work has fucked up paying me (again). There was a bank holiday on monday - would that delay things?

I live in the UK, fyi.

Do your dreams ever affect your mood the next morning?

I just had a dream that my friend Michael died... I just started crying, it's been 45 minutes. And this happens to me basically 3 or 4 times a week.
Am I just overemotional, or does this ever happen to you?

I'm taking a few semesters off from university, and I used to only take night classes (I work full time). For the first time since I was 17, my weeknights are completely free. I can go to the gym, but that's about all I can think of... I don't want to be stuck in front of a TV or a computer screen all evening, so I ask: what can I do outside of the house on weeknights?


Also, I'm single. Are dating sites worth it like eHarmony?

In a relationship, do you prefer:

Subtle communication, the truth but with a bit of tact


The honest trust, little to no tact, but complete honesty.

For example, if your girlfriend was doing something that wasn't like them, and you didn't like it, would you try to tell them gently, with subtle hints over months, or just tell them flat out how you feel?

Birth Control

I've been on BC now for two years without a problem. For those of you who understand how it works, you know that you're suppose to get your period on the last week's set of pills. And I have been so far.... until today. I'm not suppose to get it for another two weeks. In other words, my last period was 13 days ago.

So, any idea why this is happening?

And no, I have not been sexually active.

baby behavior

Why is it that when people hear that I don't want to have kids they assume that either:

1) I'll change my mind...


2) I'm a horrible evil person because children and beautiful and precious and unique and everyone should want 2,058,583 of them!


I am 22 and a few friends from high school recently had babies. One person I used to be good friends with brought her baby over to show me (because that's something I'm interested in, of course) and when my 7 lb. pomeranian was sniffing her car seat while the baby was in it, my friend smacked my dog away freaking out.

My initial reaction was to say "If you can discipline my dog, I think I'm entitled to discipline your child when it does any of the many irritating, loud, obnoxious things that it does." How many of you think she overreacted?

i was out with my friend yesterday and i said we should have an Owen Wilson movie weekend to celebrate his recent suicide attempt. this girl sitting behind us turned around and told me that was really rude and disrespectful. i thought it was a funny idea(so did my friend).

what do you think?

we thought it was funny 'cause he's done a couple movies(one which he co-wrote) which have dealt with suicide in a dark humor sort of manner.

i probably should have mentioned that we both really like him and are glad he isn't dead.

Do you formulate questions just so you can answer them yourself and be able to talk about something you want to talk about? (i.e. OMG this just happened to me it was so cool this guy I like and then he did this and I said 'ORLY?' and blah, blah, ad nauseum. TQC, when was the last time you said 'ORLY?')

So, I was wondering, are there any programs, or any other way, for me to temporarily find a job or internship-type thing at some different locations for a few months or so, but not permanently moving there? For example, I did an internship at DC last fall for four months.

Has anyone done that? Just temporarily lived somewhere, without moving there permanently, just to see what it's like there for a few months? Thanks.

Dog Kennels

I'm flying to California the end of September with my SO, so we're looking into boarding our 1 year old Lab/Newfoundland pup. I'm going to be very picky with deciding. We'll go visit first, and probably bring him in, too... although i'm not exactly sure how that works. This is my first experience with dog kennels.

I posted a message in my community forum asking for kennel recommendations in my area, and all i'm getting back is horror stories. It's really freaking my out. This might sound stupid, but this dog is my baby and i'm scared enough as it is leaving him with strangers for a week. I keep picturing him laying on a cold concrete floor, caged and alone, for hours upon hours with the sad face he does when he does something bad. I'm probably being overly dramatic, but yeah.

Does anyone have anything good to say about kennels? Please?

Anything I need to know? Any advice?

Thanks :(


Over the years I have heard more than a few gay people express sentiments such as "bisexuality doesn't exist", "you can't be on both sides of the fence", "bi is just another word for gay", and my personal favorite - "bisexuality is just a stop on the train to gaytown".

I am curious to hear other opinions about this. So, TQC, is bisexuality a legitimate sexual orientation? Or is it all LIES!?!

buying checks online

I've had a checking account for a while, but have never needed actual checks, so I never ordered them. I need them now though, so I went to the bank and ordered some. I was shocked at how expensive they were! Almost $20?!? For pieces of paper?!?

I ordered them anyways, because I need them, but I figured there had to be a better way. I'm looking at checks online now, and I can get twice the amount of checks...checks that are cute and designed, for the same amount as the boring expensive ones from the bank. 

Have you ever bought checks online? Do I have to tell my bank somehow, or do they just automatically sinc with my account? Is it safe to buy them online?



Alright, does anyone know where I can find the message on Mark and Roger's answering machine in Rent? You know--the ''Speak!'' one.

Could I pull off super blonde?

My friend has been wanting me to go platinum for a while now and I've recently been thinking about it. She keeps telling me that since I'm super tan and already a naturally darkish blonde that I could definitely pull it off but I'm still not sure.

3.) Recreate vividly in imagination your first orgasm. To what extent do you still use the same accessories (stimuli) to turn you on?

4.)Why are you reading this sentence right now? Think of as many reasons as possible. This of course leads to more questions (why did you get online in the first place? why do you have a computer? why is it you were not born blind?). Be creative.

5.) Do you enjoy it when you get "chills" or "shivers" up your spine?

6.) Who is the one who is living you now?

I got invited to the "Most Dreadfully Unfun Party of the Year".  This was my friend's description of it in the invitation:

If you wish to have a good time, go to the other cool parties. Don't come to this one. Don't come at all. It will be the most unfun party you have ever had. After you have been to this, you will think nothing of hauling concrete blocks, or counting grains of sand for hours at a time, or visiting your parents. We will dance by moving our feet about the floor in a slight shuffling manner, and we will eat only small unsalted things, like boreos.

Please bring your own bored games and refreshments. As the night passes - how slowly it will pass! - we will play Dranium and wish that we were somewhere else. I will also give away copies of my children's story, which will make the children weep when they are forced to read it in school.

Anyone who smiles will be ushered out.

i'm watching pleasantville and came up with an interesting question (i think, anyways).

for those of you aren't familiar with the premise, the town of pleasantville is a black & white town stuck in the 50's, completely devoid of any real substance (for lack of a better word) or any concept whatsoever that a world outside of them exists. when tobey maguire and reese witherspoon's character come in from ~the future~, they start corrupting the town by allowing them to see what it means to be "alive", so to speak by way of art, literature, music, sex, and subsequently, real human emotion.

so, my question is: if you were placed in this kind of a world, what would you "show" these people in the attempts to teach them about what it means to be human? what kind of music would you play for them? what would you tell them about the world? what pieces of art would you show them? etc.

i'm kind of in a rush right now, so i don't have much time to think, but from off the top of my head:

-- patti smith's version of "gloria" or "rock 'n roll nigger"
-- allen ginsberg's "howl"

Hi everyone =)

I have a very important question about how unethical, if unethical at all you think this situation is. I'm a senior at a high school where the mascot is a ram. We've always had a fake model ram in our school, but two days ago one of the teachers brought in a real ram. The ram is small, and looks very young, so I dont know if anyone is really in danger. The question is how much danger is the ram in? It's kept in a cage, where students can easily see it, and get close to it, The cage is not tiny, but it is still a cage on campus, which just bothers me. I heard it will only be kept until a football game that is coming up, which is sometime within the next month, and really, any amount of time is just terrible. What do you think of this? Should the students say something? Do you think it's reasonable to be upset about this? I would really appreciate your advice!!

Thank you in advance

In your opinion, is the hottest woman hotter than the hottest man? Why or why not? I believe so. I'm turned on by men more often, but when I see a gorgeous woman, I can barely speak. I think women are just so graceful..curvy..soft..and I find more hot women who's egos seem less inflated by their beauty, than I do men. if that makes sense? i'm too lazy to figure out better wording. and it's just an opinion!

She said she was officially trying to be an adult and would send out thank-you cards for all the gifts. If she did send any out, i didn't get one...
i didn't put my name anywhere on the box to say it was from me, i somehow figured she would be able to keep track of all the gifts she got that day, heh, so of course this is my own fault.

The gift was handmade (by me) so i really want to know if she liked it! (translation- i want praise for hard work) But i don't know if it would be rude of me to email her and ask about it. Would it? What could i say? Or do i just shut up forever and deal with it because you're not supposed to give gifts expecting thank-yous and praise? :(
At the same time, i would feel bad if someone gave me a gift and i didn't know who it was from. I would want to know.
Oh, boy.

My husband and I had to write a check to our old landlord to cover 'damages' to the apartment. I think he's making it up and is a douchbag, but our lawyer says that the way our lease was worded that we'd lose if we went to court over it.

Now, I know it's inappropriate and I'm not going to do it, but I'd love to write something in the memo section like, "I hope you choke on this check, asshole!"

What would you want to write if you were me?

Have you ever written something funny or inappropriate in the memo section of a check? What was it?

Well well well.

After ten-plus years of being on The Internet, I'm going to have my first IRL meeting with an online friend this Sunday. (Breakfast at the local IHOP. My fiance and daughter will be there, too.)

Any advice you can give me?

I have ants all over my gorram kitchen.

Why do they like it in there so much? (The fact that there was a drop of pancake syrup on the counter doesn't count.)

How can I get rid of them?

Should I give up and just adopt them as pets? Give them names? Talk to them adoringly as I shoo them away from the sugar jar to make my coffee in the morning?

What's the weirdest thing you've ever seen thrown out in the trash?

the town is still cleaning up from the great flood of '07, and today I saw a casket out on the side of the road. (looked like a Halloween prop, but a damn good one though!)

I'm looking for songs from musicals, to  sing. I know you'll ask about my own vocal quality. I have a wideish upper range.
So, do you know any songs from musicals that fit these criteria?  (and what ones?)

For a female character.
Solo (or mainly solo that I can get rid of other parts or sing them myself)

Anyone know a good way to download youtube videos?

I tried google but they give so many programs and I don't know what are frauds and what are spywares.

I also tried Ashampoo Clipfinder but whenever I try download, it says it is locked.

Anyone please?

What shall I call my new giant Ghana tiger snail?
They're the biggest snails in the world with a shell length of up to 22cm. So maybe something related to his size?
I'd love any names related to Evolution, but I don't think Darwin or Charles suits him so far.

It could be a girls or a boys name since snails are hermaphrodites, but i see him as more male really. I don't know why.

Who were all the people you bathed with as a child? What were the circumstances of having to bathe with them? Did you ever bathe with someone of the opposite sex?

What was the oldest age that you remember taking a bath with someone (before the age of sexual interest)? Did you ever reach an age where it made you uncomfortable?

What is the oldest age you feel that it is appropriate for a child to bathe with the same sexed parent? Opposite sexed parent?

Is it appropriate at any age for a child to bathe with a grandparent or other extended adult relative?

I bathed with my sister and occasionally female cousins mostly to save water; and occasional showering with friends after swimming. Only once did I shower with a boy after swimming.

I think 7 was the oldest for bathing with my sister or cousins and by then it was rare. With friends, maybe up to age 12 but it always made me feel uncomfortable.

Maybe 3 or 4 for same sex? And 2 or younger for opposite. I don't know why I feel that it's different for opposite sex.

I wouldn't feel comfortable with my kid bathing with any adult besides me.

Giving blood...
1. Have you done it?
2. How many times?
3. Do you go to drives at your school/company/area, or just go to the donor centers?
4. Do you like the people who work for the donor service?
5. What free stuff do you get?
6. How do you feel after you've done it?
7. Any other stories?
8. Do they let you pick what color bandage you want?

So, I had an interview on Monday August 13th and it went well. Very well in fact. The guy said he had another interview later in the week, but that hopefully I would hear from him soon.

As of Thursday I hadn't heard from him, so I emailed him. He wrote back
"I have another interview tomorrow (Friday). Please hang in there, I know you are anxious to hear my decision, and I will let you know ASAP."

I still haven't heard back anything. It seemed as though he would let me know either way.

What should I do?

Should I email him again, or would that make me seem over anxious?

I really want this job so I don't want to ruin it, but at the same time, the waiting is killing me.

There are two people that live the same distance away from Point A but in different directions (one lives an hour south and one lives an hour east).

If someone were to mail a letter to these 2 people from Point A at the same time, should the two people receive it the same day?

Edited to add a new question:

My dog, in her 9 years of existence, has only slept in my mother's bed or downstairs by herself. The past 3 nights she has taken it upon herself to come sleep in my bed (not that she is unwelcome there but if I ever tried to get her to sleep in my bed before  she would usually run away).  Why does she suddenly love me TQC?
