2. What scares you more, death or eternity?
3. Were you forced to go to church as a child?
4. If your child was gay would you accept it?
5. What's the most hurtful thing you ever said to someone?
what'd you get me? :D
If someone you know hurts you often (emotionally, not physically), at what point do you cut them out of your life? Is the answer different if it is a member of your family?
2) Who is going to win the Super Bowl?
3) Where were you when Diana died?
Am I just being dumb kid feeling bad? It seems it, to me.
And something a little more random...
2. On a scale of 1-10, how hilariously emo is this song title?
"In My Tears"
I wear bras like 30% of the time, and the other times I layer so that it's not obvious or otherwise tacky, but I don't like wearing bras. They're dumb and pointless unless I'm trying to do something with my breasts like make them squish together.
I hated going to sleep-overs, with the exception of my best friend's house, I was always incredibly uncomfortable with sleep-overs away from my house because I was scared I'd get sick!
Did you par take in quintessential pranks such as hand in warm water? Or freezing of the training bra?

if your in school, what kind of bookbag do you have?
what would you recomend for a bookbag that can carrier a laptop ( 2 shoulder strap ones )
What makes the better ringtone?
"Yeah I'm free, free fallin'" by Tom Petty [opening of the chorus] or "Hold me closer tiny dancer, count the headlights on the highway" by Elton John [heading into the bridge i think]?
i love them both and can't decide :(
I told him that I know for a fact we aren't ready, and that we'd definitely regret it.
We're fifteen and we're both virgins.
He got mad at me and said, "Well before I asked you out you said you wouldn't have a problem with having sex. Plus I love you and blah blah blah."
Which is true; I did say I wouldn't have a problem with having sex. However I've learned a lot since then and I've come to the conclusion that even if I were ready to have sex, he isn't. He's simply not mature enough and he doesn't seem to understand that while he may think he's ready, he isn't.
So my question is: Has this, or something similar, happened to you, or someone you know? How do I get myself out of this mess? Was it right for him to get mad? Or just give me your opinions, I guess.
edit 1: Sorry for the useless bolding; I figured you wouldn't want to read the whole thing. :/
edit 2: After talking, and him telling me to go fuck myself and calling me a bitch and telling me to fuck off several times, we've concluded that we weren't meant to be and have come to a mutual agreement that friendship is the best route. Thanks for your advice everyone, and sorry for more useless bolding / big letters. [:
Do you have friends that you and a ex share then how do you deal?
The other night my friend invited my ex along to dinner without me knowing and it was awkward as usual. We dated 2 years ago for only several months and he was my first everything. Sigh.
Describe to me in 3 words, your first girlfriend or boyfriend.
2) If you could be a Super Hero, what would your name and powers be?
3) White, Dark or Milk chocolate?
What is your sign?

What shall I sneak out of the office to remember it by?
Do you like it when people give you attention based on things like birthdays, you leaving a job or being ill or does it make you slightly uncomfortable?
do you share a bathroom with anyone?
if you do, is there more of your stuff or their stuff on the counter?
you've taken a shower.. your bathroom mirror happens to look like this do you leave it alone, wipe it to where you can at least see your face, write something on it?
ETA: your friends are getting you a set of monogrammed towels, for no reason.. you're just that great of a friend :) but they've asked you what you'd like them to be monogrammed with, what do you tell them? (ie. your initials, just your last name's first letter, your nickname?) they'll look like ( Collapse )
2) Do you have a pet? Do they sleep with you at night?
3) What object have you owned for the longest period of time?
3b)What is the oldest object you own?
Do you share well?
What was the last thing you gave to someone?
When you give someone something or do something nice for them, do you expect them to do something in return?
Do you think TSA will give us any crap going through security with 5 carryons, a child with his carseat, and over a quart of formula?
Which one do you choose?
*for me, I think it would probably be 'Is this Love' by Bob Marley.
Which is what sparked the question...
What's your gender and how many pairs of shoes do you own?
8:48 PM 8/28/07 · Marvel Comics has put forth a very interesting idea recently and I just wanted to feel folks out for their thoughts on it. Not so much specifically it but the possibles that could very well be of it.
Let me simplify.
Of the peoples of the current Marvel Universe, in disguise on Earth, who do you think is a Skrull?
For the record, I am convinced that Tony Stark isn't one!
Will you tell her congratulations?
My cockatiel died very suddenly last night. We were chattering to each other, she loved talking to people and was a sweetheart, which is why we named her SWeetie. But while I was chattering with her, she suddenly started jerking and fell to the bottom of the cage. I freaked out and yelled for my mother and Sweetie just lay there jerking for a efw seconds before she died. She had been in good health and relatively young, only about 8 or 9 years old, we just can't figure out what happened. My mother suggested that it could have been a heart attack, because Sweetie was always a bit high strung, but she was very relaxed and happy while we were chattering. My brother was a few feet away, playing video games, and barely looked up the whole time except to tell his friend to ignore me and my mother hysterical crying over the bird. His friend kept asking what he could do to help and got tissues for us. We put her in a shoebox with her mirror and bell (her favorite toys) and buried her this morning. My brother says we overreacted and that we should have kept the toys for another bird, but I would have felt horrible trying to give Sweetie's favorite things to another pet, I don't even want to get another bird now.
Did my mother and I overreact? Was it really stupid to bury Sweetie with her toys? Was my brother just being a dick about it? What even happened to Sweetie? He's already talking about getting another bird to 'replace' her, how do i get it through his skull that you can't replace a pet like that and that nobody else even wants to get a bird right now?
2) Do you visit casinos?
3) Do you ever gamble casually? (e.g. playing cards with friends)
My fiance and I went out to dinner last night. Local restaurant, certainly wasn't upscale. When our waitress came to the table she took our drink orders, when we ordered a coke and an unsweet tea she said "well that's easy." Came back and deliveried our drinks and we were ready to order - we both wanted chicken fingers cause they are just yummy. She again said "that's easy.", picked up the menus slammed them on the table to make them even up with each other and walked away. Someone from the kitchen brought our plates out, she appeared a few minutes later and asked if we needed anything extra. We said we would like an extra cup of honey mustard. Took her 10 minutes to bring that to us. We eat and every time we put a bite in our mouths she asked how we were doing.
After about the fourth time of her coming over and asking how we were doing my fiance turned the table and asked how SHE was doing. She said she was "tired".
It's time to get the check. We asked for a to go box and the check. She brought the box and forgot the check. Brings the check, sets it down on the table after another five minutes of waiting. My card was already in my hand and ready to give it to her but she walked away too quickly. Sit there for another 5 minutes waiting for her to come back. I see her come out of the direction of the kitchen, she stopped at the table diagonal to us, then the one in front of us and started to move down to the table beside that one....I called her name and she looked at me like WTF? So she comes to the table and I hand her the card. She rings it up and brings me the receipt...I didn't tip her at all.
Was I wrong for not tipping her? She didn't bring our food out. She wasn't moving at top speed and seemed to think that since she said she was tired everything would be ok. I always tip at least 30% on a check and I felt she needed to be taught a lesson. What do you think?
I do kinda feel bad about it now but I was just so pissed at having to wait 15 minutes for her to ring us out.
2) I have some personal time left at work and I think I would like to take a day off in September or October. When should I take it, and what should I do?
3) What is minimum wage in your country/province/state? It's $7.50 in MA I think? Maybe $7.25
4) Queso dip or salsa?
Is there any interesting story behind your name?
If you didn't see the accent mark, how would you have pronounced it?
More often than not people can't/don't type accent marks so when my name is typed, the accent mark is usually not included, so most people say it wrong.
[Named after Adam Walsh's mother (whom Code Adam was about) and John Walsh's wife (host of America's Most Wanted). My parents weren't trying to be oh-so-unique, lol. My dad's name starts with "R."]
Also, if you don't happen to be familiar with Hepburn, Foster, or Mirren, why the hell aren't you? Do you know what you're missing?
How do you tell someone they have bad breath, in a nice way? (*edit* Tried offering gum, he said no thanks.)
Does anyone else hate chatspeak like I do?
2: When you get to the bottom of the cereal bowl, do you drink the milk with the spoon or do you drink it from the bowl?
3: Do you keep the manual that comes in the box?
4: Do you prefer black or blue ink?
5: What is the weirdest animal you have eaten?
For me it's plain Bic blue pens. Anything else and I start complaining about the color of the ink, the way it feels in my hands, the size of the point, etcetera.
2. Do you prefer legal or spiral notebooks?
I usually go for spiral, but this semester I thought I'd be adventurous and go for legal pads. The fact that the paper is rainbow colored had nothing to do with my decision, I assure you.
3. Do you carry around a mini stapler with you?
I do, even though I rarely use it. This is mostly because the one time I asked someone to borrow theirs they said no. Mean people suck.
I always thought it was basicly the same thing
GENTLEMEN, would you want a home urinal (assuming you had room for it)?
( Collapse )
What's your current favorite coffee drink?
How do you take your coffee?
Seems like many of you have a lot of history with The Question Club and each other.
Care to write me a mini-bio of your history with TQC and the people in it? Fact or fiction?
I find myself doing this with Cancers and Virgos a lot.
She doesn't want it plain.
I've gone through and done all the versions of the password that I thought it was to get back into it and none worked.
I thought no biggy and went to try and recover it and discovered that I don't remember any of the information that I need to fill out the forms Yahoo wants.
Is there any other way of getting my account back?
I had a friend say that there was a number I could call, but I'm really phone shy, so if there are othe ways, that would be my last resort.
There are a lot of things saved there that have sentimental value and I miss those.
(For the record, no, I'm not a liar.)
travelling to and from school?
what do you define as studying?
Do you completely work that's due right after it's assigned or right before it's due?
Do you work better alone or in groups?
How often do you check your phone messages?
Name, state/city you live in, name of your school, names of loved ones, information about relationships, your daily life, emotions/opinions, pictures of you, etc?
If your journal is friends only, how much more do your friends know?
Getting dressed up and going to dinner at Denny's?
Getting dressed up and going to dinner at some nice place?
Does your answer change if you know the people involved include myself and latenightdrives? Just wondering.
Also - I pre-ordered something for a friend of mine (her birthday is coming up) and I made a flier thing to give to her that shows what it is and when it is coming to her. But I want to wrap the piece of paper up and give it to her. It is a standard 8.5x11 piece of paper. What are some nifty ways of wrapping it up? I have these heavy, thick paper tubes (like toilet paper rolls, only bigger) and bubble wrap at my disposal, but I'm open to any suggestions.
what about, The golden girls? frasier? Scooby-Doo?
any other shows you may like
So, what do you think? Deranged woman licking her sharp knife clean while staring intently - hot or not?
The regular is usually 15 per semester and I'm suppose to be at 45 credits in total. I'm at 35, but I could be at 38 cause they let you take up to 19 without charging extra...
My reaction: lolwut?
If you're an oldschool fan of DMB, how do you feel about this?
What was the "cool" band to listen to when you were in high school?
I'm kind of annoyed. I grew up with DMB and now all these little kids go to his concerts 'coz it's cool. If they're genuine fans, alrighty, but not just cuz they wanna dope up and feel trendy.
It alternated between Phish and Bob Marley.
And are you from California?
Edit: Are there other states which can be abbreviated in this way?
Do you have gay pride?
I'm a lesbian, but i dont go to pride fest
I dont own anything rainbow
i just think it's kinda lame to be proud of something, that you did nothing to make happen.
My sexuality is a part of me, it's not all that i am.
Everytime i say this, people are ready to lynch me and tell me im ashamed of who i am.
I just dont see it as that.
Is there a website or forum or something where you can type the name of a movie you like, and they will recommend movies with similar plot or a similar "feel"? Like a Pandora or Last.FM but for movies.
I will also ask: I liked Tideland because it was so dark and surreal while still being all naively magical and realistic. What would you recommend I watch that might be similar?
i'm looking to buy this bed at ikea: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S69849241
what do you think would be better for it, a [slatted bed base] or a regular [matress base]?
Also, out of the matresses that they have, what do you think would be a good/inexpensive choice? And any experience with matress pads?
Thanks for any input :)
I've recently read an article re difficulties of having sex on foam matresses. Anybody try it? :)
eta: I dl'ed Open Office. It seems to be an appropriate replacement. Thanks!
1. Do you think it was an accident, or was it a conspiracy?
2. Do you remember where you were when she died?

3) What makes you YOU?
if you don't, did you?
how long did that take to go away?
Longer version: For anyone who hasn't, it's short for Let's Meet In Real Life. I've seen it twice now--both times offline. The most appropriate response I could formulate was OMGWTFBBQ... because who DOES that? I've met 'Net friends IRL myself, and it has NEVER been that casual unless they're the friend of a friend I already know. Even then, we've never used that or anything like it.
Of course, when I saw that headline today, it also mentioned kids texting it to each other. Yes, by cell phone. If you already have someone's number and you're going to suggest a meeting, I'd think you'd do it during an actual call...
Then again, this is probably the same type of people who thought "yeah, I'd hit that" was a good ad campaign slogan for both a McDonald's hamburger and the PSP. >_>
[x-posted for more angry letter fodder]
2. Chicken or turkey?
I'm going to rip up my dissertation note cards and toss them around like confetti
And I'll also bring a cheese log and pickled eggs- because my mother never used to let me buy either.
2) Gatorade or Powerade? You must choose one!
3) What is your favorite current meme?
4) What is your favorite old meme or internet phenomenon, one that still makes you laugh every time?
5) What do you think was the very first internet craze?
3) I still like cat macros!
4) I do enjoy All Your Base Are Belong To Us.
5) In my mind it's that ugachaka baby or the hampster dance, but that's only as far back as I can remember as far as internet phenomenons go.
Now my question is...
How in the hell did that happen?
my mom has been staying with me and my boyfriend for the past month, and my dad has been here for the last two week. they came to help us get some stuff done (they live in texas, were in ohio). I grew up your typical boring suburban childhood, and my mom was a stay at home mom. my mom wouldnt even let me have bags that were made of HEMP when i was a kid.
so, enough of the backstory. i caught my mom smoking pot in our living room (my boyfriend and i live together). i didnt actually see her smoking it, but i smelled it, she thought we were all gone, etc etc... basically, i know she was smoking pot. when she and my dad left to go do something today, i checked in one of her bags (i felt so very dirty doing this) and i found the pot in her bag, so, evidence confirmed.
Anyway, I don't care that she smokes pot - i couldn't care less actually. I just don't want her to do it in our house. We prefer ithat people smoke in the garage, because my boyfriend's family just shows up all the time and walks right into the house. My mom is the uber defensive type, who always thinks people are accusing or attacking her of stuff, and she denies everything. i would like to avoid a huge blow up session, i just dont want her to smoke in the living room.
Dear TQC - how would you get the message across to your mother that A) you dont care that she smokes and B) to please smoke in the garage - my house, my rules, etc. seriously. i don't want my boyfriend's uberstraight laced grandma to show up and see my mom smoking pot. :::headdesk:::
(creative and non-serious replies especially appreciated ;) I think its hilarious...)
I started getting them when I was in junior high, but basically what happens is I get nervous about something and get this really bad boiling feeling in my stomach/ intestines and it makes me feel like I need to lay down and die. Once the sick feeling hits I go into this crazy panic mode where all I want to do is be in the comforts of my own home where I feel safe from embarresment.
I've seen a doctor about it and we ran different tests to see what it could be from. They did an upper GI and didn't find any ulcers or anything, and then I started taking lactaid because we thought maybe I was lactose intolerant. None of these things helped so I'm lead to the conclusion that its all in my head and I make myself nervous.
I eventually thought I had grown out of it because I only got occaisional "boily stomachs" when I ate something that was too greasy or I was under some kind of pressure but I recently started getting them back again in odd situations like the middle of class or when I'm getting ready to go somewhere.
Has anybody here ever had this problem? What did you do to calm yourself down before the sick feeling hit you???
So LJ, should I stop now? I'm going back to school in a couple days and the discs will no longer be around to tempt me.
1. how many of you TQCers agree with my coworkers?
2. do you feel sorry for their boyfriends?
3. why does it feel like the sky is crumbling and the world is ending? :(

Do you wish you went out with friends more?
Where do you typically go when you go out?
What is your current status?
What do you do when you're at home with no plans?
2. For those who have lived with a significant other, how is it different from living with a friend aside from physical intimacy? (Do you find it easier to live with them?)
3. For those of you who have TurboJamed, how did that go for you? If you did it frequently, did you see results?
4. Who has the most annoying display image on TQC?
i know little to nothing about drugs so a lot of what they are saying about the bricks confuses me.
( Collapse )
Men (and maybe women too): Do you like the smell of your own farts?
Do you ever think up questions but then forget them later when you have time to ask them on TQC?
Have you ever eaten sugar cane?
I would like to invest in an iPod-esque mp3 player, but maybe not an iPod as I'm a person of little funds.
Any good, reasonably priced recommedations?
I WOULD like a larger capacity one, so I can dump as much music as possible on it.
I haven't had a new book to read in about a month, and I really need to read something fresh. I love Chuck Klosterman and Chuck Palahiuk, so do you have any suggestions for me, TQC?
This club reminds me of Dwight from The Offivce.
Anyways, does anyone know where I can get this image as something other than a flash/movie file?
Maybe a .gif or .jpeg or even .png
So I held up my hand against the black of my t-shirt and it was there too. It's sort of like when you don't focus on something in front of your face and on a point further away so it looks like there's two of the things in front of your face, just not as extreme. So like really slight double vision, but only against a dark background.
So could you please go try this in your nearest mirror and tell me if it happens to you? If so, is this some science thing to do with mirrors I never learned about in high school? And if it doesn't work for you, then which one is dying, my eyes or my brain?
The restrictions are it must have a location in Jacksonville, FL and cannot be Mexican/Indian/Japanese.
EDIT: and also not poop sandwiches, because I had those for lunch.
Those of you who are married, was this true for you?

2. My friend is going through a really rough time. I can't do anything to help the situation that is causing the drama, but I still want to help. What is something I can do for said friend to cheer them up/take their mind off of things/let them know I'm here if needed.
2a. What is the nicest thing a friend has done for you when you were going through a rough time?
Do you own a Nokia phone?

How excited are you about Rob Zombie's remake of Halloween? 1=Fuck that dude; 10=omg I've been looking forward to this for months
1)Do you think there are enough people in China that they could make a bridge of bodies all the way across the Pacific Ocean and still have 2 or 3 people to every one American so that they could beat us all up and take over the country?
2)What's the worst childhood accident you've ever had? Not mine, but at my cousin Matt's birthday party one year one of his friends shot his other friend in the eye with Matt's BB gun. The kid was okay, but my aunt and uncle were afraid there might be a lawsuit or something.
Am I just old fashioned and anal or does this bother anyone else?
2. What's your least favorite vegetable? Fruit?
3. How many televisions are in your home?
4. Do you have any expired food in your refrigerator right now?
5. What kind of fridge do you have? One with the freezer on one side and the fridge on the other, or one with the fridge on the bottom and the freezer on top?
The other night, while drunk, I was making up rhymes to go with Rihanna's "Umbrella" song.
The two I remember were "you can have all of my Salmonella-ella-ella-ei-ei" and something to do with Cinderella.
But there was ONE certain word that I just CAN'T remember.... but it was soooooo funny and perfect and maybe my drunkenness had to do with how funny I found it, but I'd just really like to remember what that word was.
So... friendly neighbourhood LJ helpers... do you have any suggestions for what the word that rhymes with Umbrella could have been?
thanks so much!
It could be cartoons, phrases, images, people, political statements, etc.

Also, I'm bored. What is a better thing to do on the intertoobz?
I have a question!
Does anyone else ever experience smoking hiccups?
Sometimes when I'm smoking a cigarette every time I take a drag it makes me hiccup. And only when I am actually inhaling. For as long as I don't have a puff I stop, and even if it's a few minutes later, when I have one I will hiccup.
It's weird, no-one else seems to get it.
So do any of you guys ever experience such a phenomenon?
any idea why sushi makes me feel so great?
What goes through your mind when someone you know dies?

If you've ever worked ANYWHERE, what's the grossest thing you've seen at your job?
(feel free to tell those "my sister's uncle's brother's grandma's" stories too!)
mine would be just some things in the fridge (milk & chinese food left in there for months, etc). but at my old job I was a gas station clerk so I had to clean the bathrooms. yay! fun! except not. I've seen semen on the bathroom floor and shitty underwear in the trashcan, as well as on the walls & floor.
Do you use your first name or your middle name at work?
What is your middle name?
Do people call you something else outside of work?
Is your paycheck issued by your first or middle name?
Do you wish you could change your name to something else? If so, to what?
People typically don't call me by my name and my fiance uses terms of endearment
First (but curious if there would be any changes required with the bank if it was issued in my middle name)
Sometimes. I used to go by Bree in high school. I was bent on changing my name to Brianna.

Does your hypothetical child have a name? If so, what?
I call mine Pongo
(Mine are Huey, Dewey and Louie with Donald a close second)
But after a couple of uses he's started to smell like bread and it made me feel sick.
I tried to counter-act it with some smelling oils (suggested by the website) but now the smell makes me feel sick AND gives me a headache even though I didn't use more than recommended.
What the hell is wrong with him?!
