Tomorrow afternoon I have a tattoo appointment in Indianapolis. I live in Ohio. The last time I was there I showed up for my appointment an hour early, stupidly not realizing there's a time difference. I also heard that this year there was going to be differences with that area changing times. Was it just for Daylight Savings? Is there still going to be an hour difference when I go tomorrow? Am I really this dumb? Thanks!

I know requests like these are usually frowned upon, but Google is failing me at the moment.  Does anybody have the picture of the photoshopped Lozol(a prescription drug) bottle that was made to say Lolol (Internet) by any chance?  I thought I had saved it, but evidently I was very wrong. 

And so this isn't a complete waste of space:  Eddie Vedder recently did a cover of a song called Hard Sun, originally done by a somewhat obscure artist named Indio.  A Myspace made by a third party with some of the person's music is here.
1)Have any of you guys ever heard of this person?
2)If so, have you been able to find his recordings anywhere?
3)Did you think this stuff on the MySpace, or his stuff in general, was any good?
4)Who are some other somewhat obscure/lesser known artists who you think deserve more recognition (people who are a bit more popular than just local bands, please.  I'm sure you could all fill up a page with local bands you like, as could I)

could anyone suggest a good guitar tabs website?

i used to use but apparently they are in the midst of legal troubles, and as such, pretty much took everything down.

do you think that sharing tabs over the internet should be considered copyright infringement?

Okay so there's a guy I work with who had a card that said "Inmate Vending Card. Commissary Service" on it. It had a bar on the back and a bit more writing that I can't really remember. I immediately assumed he was a convict/inmate or something-- anyone know anything about these kinds of cards?

And if he is an inmate, are there prisons that let their prisoners out to go to work? He works 11-7 five nights a week.

Another Tech Question

Hi TQC!!!


TYVM in advance, but I have a question. My SO's family have a HP computer which has HP updates on it.

How do you make that not run? When it runs, the whole harddrive is concentrating on running that and the computer is really slow! They have dual core, and it's supposed to be an advanced computer with gaming power.

WTF is this shit? How do you make the HP updates stop/not run? TYVM and have a nice evening/morning!

Whats your secret? I've been going to college for 4-5 years now and just graduated. I'm now bussing at Panera and I don't like it.  I don't know how you make it look so easy and just get up and go to work. It's only the second day and i'm already complaining to myself and thinking shit, I gotta do this for at least 6 months give or take.

So, what's your secret? I'm thinking, maybe some red bull will kick me in the ass.

Is anyone into stamping/cardmaking?  have any good lj comms to recommend as i learn? 

Also, I went to a Stampin Up party.  One of the cards we made involved stamping in something, then using a brush to add chalk to the wet stamp outline for a brushed/pastel type look.  I didn't look at what the ink stuff was, but it was on a white pad.  In some stores they have adhesive in pad form, but it requires heating for it to get sticky, and we didn't do that.  Is it possible it was just white ink?  I'm not sure how sticky normal inkpads are, but I don't want to buy stuff I'm not going to use... would regular white stamp ink be sticky enough for chalk to stick to it without smearing the design?

How can I keep my tongue piercing from stretching out? It kept stretching, so I kept putting in bigger jewelry. But the jewelry gets pretty huge after a point, so I took it out for a couple of weeks and it went down to about a 14g from an 8g. Now it's getting bigger again. Will anything keep that from happening?

How do you think it came about that people (generally) slept at night? Is it because they just couldn't see in the dark?

Would you ever commit suicide if a loved one died? Someone in one of the communities I moderate asked what people would do if their spouse died, and someone went as far as to say they would kill themselves. WTF.

Conjoined Twins?

If you are 1/2 of a conjoined twin that shares vital organs with the other half is it ok to kill your conjoined twin? What if most of the organs are on your side of the body making you more of the "full person" that they are sponging off through no fault of their own? Does that make them some sort of annoying parasite as a fetus is viewed by many?

Unrequited Love

What movies can you think of where someone loves someone, tells them, is rejected (preferably not because they hate them, more just because they're not interested), then the person who did the rejecting changes their mind and  falls for them?
So far I have 'Stardust' (though in that case it was more that someone else told him that she loved him and he was at first like 'oh okay then' because he was into someone else) and possibly Pride and Prejudice though Elizabeth WAS hugely angry at Mr Darcy...

And, have you ever seen  that sort of thing happen in real life?

In need of ideas for Psychological Methods Project

My partner and I are having trouble coming up with a research question for our Psychology project. Here's the prompt:

Write a research report that shows the steps that psychologists follow in conducting scientific research. Your report should target Juniors and seniors in your high school who are interested in scientific research. The purpose of the research is to provide the target audience with an overview of the steps that are followed to conduct research. Test your hypothesis using one of the research methods psychologists use: survey, cases study, observation, or experiment. Record the type of research method used, explain the procedures of the method, and describe the results obtained.

We were assigned the survey method. I really don't what kind of research question would be best for that method and I have no way to contact my teacher this weekend. Does anyone have any ideas? Please and thank you!

If you have ever lost a significant amount of weight and ended up gaining some of it back then this entry is for you.

I lost 30 pounds between January and June this year. I was stuck at -30 pounds for about two months and recently I got myself into this "maintaining mode" and I gained back ten of these pounds. It's been stressing me out a lot because I worked so hard to lose the weight and I've been gaining it back. Getting back into my "diet mode" seems to be impossible. Everytime I screw up I just say fuck it for the whole day and do even worse.
My question is if this has happened to you where you have lost a bunch of weight then gained some back, how did you get back on track?
Did you just go, "OKAY STOP. I need to get back on my diet." and you just did it or was there something someone said or what.

I really would like to get back on track and lose the 10 pounds I gained along with 10-20 more and I just need some help with it.

Sex and violence

1. You're dating someone new. You two hit it off immediately and you really enjoy the other person's company. You have a similar sense of humor, enjoy similar interests and you like how the other person makes you feel. And they're way hot. You guys haven't progressed to any serious intimacy yet, and one night while the two of you are up talking late, your new SO, who's currently unemployed (but looking), bites his/her lip and finally says what their former job was. S/he was a porn star. Was for 5 years, where s/he slept with probably over 700 people. However, 6 months ago, s/he got out of the business because s/he seriously wanted a more fulfilling occupation, and is going to school to get a second start. S/he hasn't had sex with anyone since then, but reassures you that s/he is clean and has had numerous tests done in the last year. Quite a bombshell.

Do you stay with this person, or is this information a dealbreaker?

2. You're at a bar/club/restaurant, minding your own business with your SO. You're having a good night, when a drunk guy/girl (same gender as you) at the table behind you starts insulting you and propositioning your SO. At first, you try and mind your own business, but the taunts are rather sharp and you get pissed and say something back. This enrages the drunk, who walks over and kicks you in the back and calls you a cunt/asshole. Nearby people are going OOOOOOO. You're the star of this unfolding melodrama and being judged. You stand up, ready to give this person either a piece of your mind or your fist, when you notice that this person has only one arm. The other ends at a stump right below the shoulder. You hesitate briefly. With the other patrons watching, your 3-limbed nemesis calls you another insulting name and jabs you in the nose, laughing at your failure to take action. Another OOOOO echoes through the crowd. Your move, hotshot.

My kids brought home a lost dog yesterday. No tags, but she has been chipped. The phone number is no longer in service. The given address on the chip is about 40 minutes away. And given that she didn't know that cars are dangerous, I doubt she traveled that far. She's too well cared for to have been dumped. I'm guessing the people moved and didn't update the chip and she got lost sometime yesterday. There's no listing in the phone book or online for the people and none of the local vets know her. And we don't have a local shelter and there's about 20 subdivisions around us. I'm at a loss as to what to do with this dog. I just know my cat kicked her ass yesterday and now she wants revenge and it's getting harder and harder keeping them apart. Any ideas on what more I can do to find the owner? Or what to do with the dog?

My dad is an idiot and keeps fucking up his computer to the point where it's unusable and I have to do a full system restore. I'm supposed to go over to his place tonight and fix his computer again.

TQC, do you guys have any recommendations for programs that will minimize the chances of him fucking up again? For instance, I'm planning to switch from IE to Firefox because I think it's easier to use and has better pop-up blocking and stuff. What are your favorite easy-to-use antivirus programs, ad blockers, stuff like that? He's running on Windows XP if it matters.

Also, why do people like my dad, who shell out big bucks for computer protection software, end up killing their computers, while people like myself, who look at weird sites and download files from everywhere on the internet, never have problems with their computers? WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM

Lease situation

*I am currently leasing a 2006 Jeep Liberty.
*My lease ends Feb. 2009.
*My mileage limit is 36,000.
*My current mileage, 1.5 years into my lease, is 35,553.


If I just keep driving and turn it in over mileage, it will cost $.20/mile. That is a LOT of money. I can purchase miles right now for the same price, but spread out over payments, but purchasing only 5,000 miles (which would go in like 3 months) would put my car payment from $289 to $350 and I can't really afford that.

If I break my lease, they spread out the remaining money (just over $4,000) over the months of my new lease/purchase, and according to the sales guy, this would be close to $500/month.

The only other option I can think of is to park my Jeep and buy a $1,000-$2,000 junker to drive for the next year until I can turn in my Jeep 6 months early with no penalty.

So, what would you do?

Drive and pay a huge fee at the end of my lease?
Buy miles now but have a huge monthly payment?
Break my lease and pay close to $500 for a new car (while possibly saving gas money b/c my Jeep eats gas like candy)?
Buy a junker to drive for a year and park my Jeep?
This situation is starting to cause me HUGE anxiety.

I have other questions if you don't want to read the above:

1. how much debt are you in?
2. how many credit cards do you have?

A few months ago when I took my road test to get my driver's license, I was in the car with my instructor and he was having me practice parallel parking. I kind of sucked at it, which from what I understand most people do, especially new drivers.

When it was all over, a part of his goodbye greeting was, "and maybe your husband can teach you how to parallel park." I had already told him I was single and um, well, I'm only 19. He had asked me questions about marriage as idle chat before, which I didn't find strange (I had said I just didn't know what would happen in my future). I didn't think much of it and was like, "okay, thanks" and went on my way, but now that I think on it it was a little weird.

What would your reaction to that be? What would you think?

2. In which month do most of your friends/family have their birthdays?

3. On a scale of 1-10, how bad is dying your hair with drugstore boxed dye as opposed to going to a salon? 1 being not bad at all, 10 being hair suicide.

4. In your area, how much would it cost to rent a one bedroom and den apartment? (approx 835 square feet)

I found four plastic "pearl" necklaces. Two black ones (one short and one long) and two pink ones (one short and one long). Should I wear them, or does that just look silly?

I saw Genesis in concert last night :) What fun thing have you done lately?

How can I cover up an angry looking pimple? It's right under my nose and looks gross :(

git 'er done

Yesterday I saw a bumper sticker on a Chevy. It was an American flag and it said "Don't put my flag on your foreign car". What are your thoughts on that sentiment?

essential oils

what the hell are they and where do I get them?

Not like.. motor oil.

My niece is into aromatherapy and she's coming to visit for a few days, and I was informed it would be a nice gift.

I looked in my 'chick' handbook and I'm missing this chapter.

where do I get this stuff?

I'm in the US.


Support Our Troops?

Do you think that rallies, t-shirts, ribbons, etc that are meant to support the troops overseas really support them? Or is it more to (emotionally) help the families and loved ones of said troops?

ps-please no "OMG WAR" bullshit, that's really old. I just want to know what you think about the "support our troops" stuff.

Wait a second...

What's the latest thing to make you go OMGWTFBBQ?

(or insert your favorite expletive/exclamation)

Have you ever been in a situation where you want to yell said expletive/exclamation but can't say a damn thing?

Yeah, that's where I'm at now, which is why I can't answer my own question.

I live in America and the other day I saw a car that had the word "Infidel" in bold letters colored like the American flag on it's back window.
Does anyone else find this extremely odd and slightly confusing?


1. Do you wear shoes in your house when you're just hanging out? What about socks? Do you go barefoot?

2. I like to break things down in my head. Such as, the work day is 9 hours. There are four hours before lunch hour and four after. My morning snack breaks up the first four hours into two hour segments, and my afternoon snack does the same (I eat my peach at 10am, and my egg and veggies at 3pm). I also do this with distance on my dog walks, TV shows on the TV at the gym or number of songs I'll hear during my workout, etc.

Does anyone else do this?

3. For the drinkers out there: what will you be imbibing this weekend?


1. Barefoot unless it's cold and then socks.

3. Wine tonight, and maybe beer tomorrow!

If your dad was in the hospital, would you buy him flowers? Do you think it would be a little weird to buy a man flowers?

My dad is having a minor (hopefully) operation in a couple of weeks and I can't be there, but I want to do something for him.

I've been crazy tired lately. Like, I'll wake up and an hour later I'll have to lay back down. I'm also having a lot of pain all over the right side of my body. Am I dying, TQC?

Should I waste my money on a pizza that I'm craving or just eat cereal as it's the only thing in the house?

Assuming you already have, where did you lose your virginity?
-In my bf's car in the church parking lot.  I'm blasphemous!

Where were you when you had the best sex?
-In my bed, classic. :)


If you live with your SO, when you get sick how do you keep them from getting sick too?  Or do you just share all the colds?

need a bit of laundry transport

2:36 AM 9/28/07 · I've had a sack for my laundry for the longest time. Parents gave it to me back in 1984 for boarding school and I've been using the same one this whole time. I use it to get my laundry from where it's bunched up to where I wash it and I wash the sack right along with the rest of it.

Well, nothing lasts forever and it's pretty much getting onto being shredded. Which brings up the understandable question...

...where does one buy a sack?

How old...

1. What age is the minimum for a young woman to be called a 'bitch'? After puberty? Needs to be closer to your own age?

Just curious. *looks innocent*

2. At what point do you consider putting a dog to sleep? When it has a terminal disease (renal failure, congestive heart failure, cancer)? When it has a hard time getting around (arthritis, old age), yet it's otherwise healthy? When it gets to a certain age?

My mom has a thirteen year old schnauzer with arthritic hips, but he's perfectly healthy. Some idiots in her family have suggested to her that she just 'let him go... peacefully'. But he's like a brother-dog to me, Mom loves him, and I want to tell my nosy Older Aunt to STFU.

3. At what age is it safe to call gray hairs 'premature gray'?

I'm thirty, and if things keep going the way they are, I'll be salt-and-pepper by the time I turn 35. Thank God for color-in-a-box.

Dear TQC, should I have left?

My friend called from my SO's cell (they ran into each other in town). She said she had just missed her bus into the town I live close to, that she had to pick someone up there, I should meet her, and we'd all go back to her place and hang out. This was about 3:30pm. She said she'd be at a specific bus stop at around 4:45pm in my town, so I told her I'd show up there and wait for her. I got there at 4:45, and wait. Finally the bus she's supposed to be on pulls in at 5:15pm, and no one gets off at the stop. I double check the times, make sure there isn't any more buses coming soon (not another one til 6:00pm). I hang around for another 5 or so minutes, and then leave. She's no longer with my SO, and she doesn't have a cell, so I couldn't call her and be like "omgwhereareyou?!"

And more importantly, what do you think happened to my friend?

(no subject)

1] Straighten your back, from however you're currently sitting. Were you very hunched over?
Yes. It frightened me.

2] When were you happiest in your life? Edit; Why?

3] What's the cutest/most romantic thing someone has done for you?
I had problems saying 'I love you' when my ex and I started going out, because I wasn't sure I did. So instead, he decided we should just say 'Aquafina,' and made an Urbandictionary entry on it. It was very adorable at the time.

what's the going rate for an apartment in your area?

have you ever been to a tanning salon? did you go tanning for a certain occasion? (prom, wedding, etc) were you happy with the outcome?

do you leave the tv on while you sleep?

is there a song that everybody and their momma seems to either know or LOVEEEE that you've never really ever HEARD or care to hear? (you just happen to know the name or the artist that sings it) for me it'd be Oasis - Wonderwall.

This first one is for the ladies. :P

If you're going out (on a date) with someone shorter than/the same height as you, do you still wear heels?

and for everyone,

WHY do I suddenly really like the new Britney song? Have I totally lost my mind?

The Question Club dance

I'm not saying that this is going to be the club's official dance, because I do not come close to possessing that kind of influence, but the pointed question is, if the universe were limited to only 3 dances and you had to select one for this community, which one would you go with? BTW, costumes are ESSENTIAL to the dance, whenever performed

Have you resented a person who's given you bad news? More specifically, somebody who has let you know of a death? I'm asking because I had to let my parents know that their best friend suddenly died, and my mom has been acting slightly differently towards me since then. Maybe it's actually because she's been sad because of his death, and I'm just paranoid and wrong, but I think she's a little warmer and more open towards my brother. I may be overanalyzing, though.

So bored.

What made you realize you had to break it off with your boyfriend/girlfriend?

I knew it was over with my ex when it got to the point where I had to get drunk to have sex with him. That relationship was three years of greatness and one year of hell.

Some music questions

1. Amy Winehouse or Lily Allen?
2. The Academy Is or Boys Night Out?
3. Which concert would you rather go to: a 4-band concert that's $30 which you only like the headliners but you like them a lot, or a 1-band concert that's $20 that you have a good chance of meeting the band?
