What types of books/magazines do you have in your bathroom to read while you poop?
EDIT: If you don't have any... do you just stare at the wall? Or, is it your 'thinking throne'?

Should I take my 10 month old trick or treating? I don't want to but his dad is excited about it.
Do you think it's selfish for parents to take young babies trick or treating when you know they're going to eat the candy themselves?

1. Do you talk to your dance partners at clubs? What do you say?
I always feel super awkward and try to make conversation to fill the silence. One of my guy friends actually told me "We don't talk now" when we danced together. D:


2. Do you primarily dance with strangers, or guys/girls you already know?
I hate dancing with guys I don't know.


3. Do you feel uncomfortable grinding with people you've just met?

How would you feel about living where you do if less than 0.1 % of the population was your ethnicity?

Let's say the rest of the population is one ethnic group, but you can speak their language. Edit: Let's say they would treat you the way the smallest minority in your area is treated now.

(If that's already the case for you, how would you feel about living there if you were in the majority?)

Is Tourette's syndrome ever funny?


There has been a huge nuclear event. At the moment it happens, you are in a room underground that is self-contained and the radiation cannot get into the room you are in, and you are alone. There happens to be enough food to last you, say, a month. There are also some cleaning supplies. You are 99.9% sure that no one will be coming to look for you. After all, they are probably all dead.

Do you wait it out to die naturally? Or do you kill yourself?

Leadership building

Do any of you know any good leadership building activities? I did a bunch in elementary school and high school, but I honestly can't remember them at all. A bunch of kids from my program at school have to go to local high schools to push the importance of leadership, and I don't have any ideas.

Any help would be amazing!

There was a POP, and now my ear has got that plugged up feeling you get in airplanes, only it won't go away. It's been about five days now, and I can hardly hear out of it at all. Will it go away?

What are some totally disgusting family practices?

My dad will grab us and try to pop our zits. Or, and this is really gross and I don't remember how it started, but we'll tell our younger cousins that we have to tell them a secret. When they lean in, instead of whispering in their ear, you lick the side of their face. This has also lead to licking arms if they don't get close enough, or licking your own palm to wipe on them.

Yes
68(95.8%)
No
3(4.2%)

Those of you who said yes...It's the second date. They're wearing a short sleeved top, and you notice that this person is a lot hairier than other members of their gender. They are attractive despite this, and you two are getting along super. Do you keep dating them?

Yes
62(89.9%)
No
7(10.1%)

Those of you who said yes...It's a few dates later, and you've progressed to deeper physical intimacy. Their shirt is off, and you notice that they have superfluous nipples. Like, 4 extra nipples, in sets. Each set is aligned just below the primary nipples, and each set is staggered like 3 inches apart, so there's 3 rows of nipples, each row equal distance apart from the others. Would you keep dating them after this?

Yes
17(26.2%)
No
48(73.8%)

Those of you who said yes...It's progressed into sex now. It's good sex. Afterwards, you notice that this person has a 3" tail, extending from their tailbone. In summary, they're hunched over, hairy, have 3 rows of nipples and now they have a tail. Would you continue to date them?

Yes
8(20.5%)
No
31(79.5%)

Okay, let's say you're talking to a friend that is of your preferred gender and you suddenly get this urge to kiss this person. Having half a brain, you don't do so, considering the timing is very off for it.

Thank you Notes

I want to start running, because frankly I'm 5'0, and I'm creeping up to 140 lbs. I always swore to myself I would never let that happen.  I want to lose the weight in a healthy way. I live in a hilly neighborhood, and I hate the gym, but my boyfriend is making me go with him. I also smoke, and I'm quitting. I used to be pretty active, and I have a lot of muscle, just fat on top of it.

How do I get into a running schedule, and how do I maximize my results? Any weight-loss, cardio tips?

1) Does anyone else here get freaked out by last minute plans? It doesn't happen all the time. Sometimes someone will call and I get really stressed out to the point where I don't even wanna go and hang out with people. It really messes a lot of things up for me. I try to tell my friends that I need to know things ahead of time, but they don't really get it.

2) Are you someone who needs large chunks of time to yourself? I am.

3) Do you like having small groups of friends better than larger groups? I usually have smaller groups because I'm not good at making friends, but I feel more comfortable in larger groups.

4) Anyone here completely anti-social?

If you went to get your eyebrows waxed, and shortly afterwards both of your eyelids looked like this:

Collapse )

what would you do?

This has happened to me three times now (no, NOT with the same person, and I am not planning on going back to the person who last did it). If it ever happens again, do you think I have the right to ask for a refund, since she did make my eyebrows themselves look decent but ripped the skin off my eyelids (that was four days ago and the scabs are still very prominent)?

Plucking them myself isn't appealing to me. I'd rather spend the $15 every six weeks or so because when done correctly it's worth it.

EDIT: DAMMIT IT WORKED WHEN I PREVIEWED IT.

I hate talking on the phone. If you're going to call me, get to the point and then get off. If you're going to blah blah blah about everything under the sun send me an e-mail.

What is something you hate that you're being forced to do?

ETA: Gah! I just got off and my phone said we were "chatting" for 27 minutes! I can't believe I survived that.

1. Should I get my eyes checked? I'm 21 and got them checked once when I was like 11 and was told I didn't have any vision problems, but that I am... at risk or something for glaucoma later in life. Anyway the reason I'm thinking of getting my eyes checked again is that I notice that after I've been watching DVDs on my computer in the dark, when I turn the screen off I sometimes notice the vision in my right eye is worse than the vision in my left eye-- that is, my left eye is more adjusted to the darkness but my right eye can only see bright things. Is the eye doctor going to think I'm crazy/a hypochondriac if I go see him about this?

2. What do you wear to bed?


My answers:
1. Yes.
1a. I bought a cute "dress" from American Eagle's aerie line at the mall last night. I looked at the receipt a few minutes ago to read that it's actually a nightie. My friends that were with me all that it was a dress and looked really cute on me though. I'm not sure what to do now. ETA This is it in case anyone else is wondering.
1b. Extremely. I never shop AE, so I didn't know their aerie line was only pajamas and underwear (seriously this was my first purchase there and I don't think I've stepped into one of their stores in the past six years.)

2. A t-shirt and pajama pants or boxers.

I have Comcast internet service, thus Comcast.net is my homepage. It used to never ever ever log me out. Well one day I clicked in the wrong spot on the screen and managed to lock my dumb ass out. Now it will not leave me logged in! Even if I click "remember me on this computer". HALP??? How do I get it back to never logging me out?

Paging Dr. LJ!

I require the advice of Dr. LJ.

This past week I started taking a new medication. It has made me incredibly nauseated and caused me to lose anything resembling an appetite; everything tastes disgusting and makes me sick to my stomach. As a result I haven't really been eating, and I've lost 4 lbs. in a week (ironically I was dieting before this, but healthfully, this is not the way I want to lose weight) and feel like crap (shaky, weak, etc.). I went and bought some Slim-Fast meal replacement drinks (gross, I know, but it's a temporary thing - 'they' say the side effects should dissipate within a few weeks - and it's better than nothing right now), because I feel like it might be easier to get and keep those down, but I'm unclear on how many of them I need to drink in a day in order to meet some kind of minimal nutritional standards (again, in the short-term while adjusting to the medication, I realise that drinking only Slim-Fast would be insanely unhealthy long-term, and yes, I tried googling).

So now that I've given you the boring back story, my question is: does anyone know how many I need to force down in a day in order to do this?

Thanks.

Kilts...

Do you find this outfit ridiculous (the ass making the peace sign, not me)?



A friend of mine made a comment on the entry clearly avoiding a huge mock (but implied enough of it for me to think she was being rude), but the kilt and all was actually quite a smash. Mr. Peace-Sign was pretty much serving as a model for the evening for the desinger. You'd be shocked at how many men in suits secretly want to have a kilt.

(P.S. If you remember the post about black-tie dresses, that was what I ended up getting. If my husband can get away with wearing that, I figured a slightly shorter length would be okay. I was going to get a long CK gown, but I am short and there was no time to get it hemmed. Plus the black one was $127 cheaper... And I'm cheap. Hahaha.)

I found a car on autotrader.com and i emailed the guy who listed it for more questions.

He wrote back and said he was in the military and that he is currently based in the UK and the car is i with him. He said that he will ship the car to me by military airplane at his expense and i have 14 days to decide if it is what i want. He also said that he wont receive the money until i recieve the car. He said that i can use a third party escrow called moneybankers.


Basically, is this a scam? I don't really know what to do. It seems legitimate enough but i dont want to pay 6000 dollars for a piece of crap car and then be stuck with having to pay fees to send it back to the guy. What would you do?

Should I even bother?

I have a friend who is one of the nicest people I know. She is caring and considerate, and I haven't had such a good friend like her before. 

 We are friends through school and we have the same major. 

Our family lifestyles are completely different, though. I work 40 hours a week and go to school full-time. She is taking two classes (cuz of the baby, which I completely understand downsizing the schedule...these two classes are going to be a  lot for her) and she works at most 20 hours a week. She has a home with her husband and her baby, and I live in apartment with my boyfriend. Her family is super religious (her parents run a church where her father is pastor). She is married and had a baby on Friday.

One of the biggest differences between us, though, is that I am not religious. I do not go to church, I know very little about the Bible, and I do not consider myself a Christian. She knows most of this, but today her mother asked me when my boyfriend was going to marry me! I'm not planning on marrying him any time soon, and her mother sorta looked at me funny when I told her so. Also, they've been asking me to come to church- which I can't because I work Sundays- but I feel uncomfortable in churches based on things that happened in my childhood. 

So, after that tl;dr, TQC- Should I write a letter to my friend explaining that I just don't consider myself to be religious? I want to explain that I really care about her,  and that I respect the life she is living, but I am not the same as her. Do you think this is an okay thing to do?

My boyfriend and his buddy were hanging out the other night around 2:30 a.m. They were walking around by the river in an area where there are a lot of fishermen and people about, even late at night, so he didn't feel too unsafe. They got in the car and were chatting when my boyfriend looked over and saw a guy peeping into his driver's side window. He yelled "WHAT THE FUCK?", the guy looked scared and disappeared, and they got the hell out of there. There was no indication of what this guy was doing and theories range from robbing them to hoping they were doing something dirtay that he could spy on.

So, what was he doing?

This girl was telling me these mind twister puzzle type things a few months ago, and refused to tell me the answers to them. One went like "Lizzie likes the woods but not the forest. She likes grass but hates plants. She likes MC Hammer but not Anna (that's my name). She likes Alyssa (my friend's name) but not Faum (other friend's name).

The other puzzle was like, you can start a planet but only bring certain things. You can bring you and me, but not Anna (that's my name and I'm quoting what the girl said to me). You can bring Faum and Alyssa.

Has anybody heard these before and knows the answer/can figure it out? It has been killing me for literally MONTHS and the girl refuses to tell me the solutions.

Hello everyone!

Lately I've been looking to buy a new laptop since my old desktop is slowly dying. I've heard that Dell has really good deals on Refurbished computers. I looked around a bit, but I really don't know anything about computers.

Can someone please look at this list of refurbished computers and let me know if any of these look any good:

http://outlet.us.dell.com/ARBOnlineSales/topics/global.aspx/arb/online/en/InventorySearch?c=us&cs=22&l=en&s=dfh

I really don't need it for much except some school work, internet browsing, and a little eBay selling.

Also, I'm a little confused about the wireless internet since I've never had a laptop. Is there a way that I can have internet service anywhere that I go, not just at my house? Like if I'm at a friends house, can I access my internet over there? Sorry if I sound stupid, but I just don't know much about any of this.

There's this family that lives a few minutes away from me and the wife and daughters always cook and garden, then put what they make/grow on a stand by the road for people to buy. Along with numerous posters about god and saving your soul. The women who come down to the stand to put more stuff out and whatnot are always wearing old-fashioned dresses that don't show any of their skin other than their necks, faces and arms from the elbows down. They also wear their hair tied back in buns and a bonnet-type hat over it. We always called it the 'Amish Lady's Stand', but they're not Amish because they go to the store and the man drives a truck.

So, TQC, my question is: What religion are they? I live in Northeast PA, if that helps at all.

I'm hoping there's at least one Ayaka Hirahara (or Hirahara Ayaka, whichever you prefer) fan in this community who can help me.

I'm looking for the song used in this video. The poster claims that it's Ayaka Hirahara's song "Kokoro", but so far I'm not having any luck using that name. The only song with a similar name by that artist I've been able to find is "Kokoro mo You," which sounds nothing like the song in the video. So, what song is this, who is the artist, and where might I be able to find it? Limewire and various torrent searches have been unhelpful. I'm willing to buy a CD as well since I like a lot of her stuff, but I would want to get the CD with this song if possible. Thanks!

I have had a headache for the past week. Tell me what's wrong with me and how to stop it, Dr. TQC.

we had to make similes today out of words we randomly wrote down. Here are the ones I had to do. The first word is an idea, the second a concrete object, and the third an adjective. We had to go like "IDEA is like an ADJECTIVE OBJECT because blahblah," but we could also mix it around a little bit, as long as the words were main parts of the simile.

Love - telephone pole - solitary
Hatred - rabbit - large
Anger - carousel - blatant
Jealousy - television - curious
Passion - boots - glistening
Holiness - scorpion - marine
Joy - glass shards - musical
Embarrassment - paintbrush - musical
Hunger - cement wall - lively
Desire - glitter - decaying

Will you attempt to make your own simile out of one (or more) of those groups of words?

Have you seen Footrot Flats?

When I first saw this as a kid I was oblivious to the adult themes that I later picked up on when I got older, do you think that the naivety of children is what blinds them to adult themes and humour?
And if they don't understand it is it okay for them to view such content?

Do you think parents kick up a fuss over nothing when it comes to violence and sex in movies?
Isn't it as simple as if you don't want them watching it don't let them?

I remember watching movies like The Terminator, and Blood Sport as a  kid and I'm wasn't scarred by it.

Does this make my parents bad parents if they let me watch such movies?

History Channel

a) When did the history channel decide that history programming should be reserved only for special occasions? (Ice Road Truckers, Modern Marvels, & The Universe are not history. Sometimes Modern Marvels is, but rarely)

b) Does it make you sad that the History Channel now rarely shows history?

c) Wow, Christopher Columbus was one crazy guy, huh?

d) My father and I are watching the Columbus Day special and Mystery Science Theatre 3000-ing it. Is there any way this could be more nerdy?

e) If you have the History International Channel - Is it as awesome as my occasional perusal of its programming would suggest?


1) How long does it take Vicodin to absorb into your system? How about Penicillin? If someone threw up about 20 minutes after taking the two, they should probably skip a dose, rather than double up, right?

If you knew you were going to die in exactly one month,
what are 5 things you would do before you died?

1. I would make amends with the people I hurt.
2. I would tell you that I do love you.
3. I would stay out all night with my five favorites, doing whatever we wanted on a whim, then sit on top of AO and watch the sunrise together.
4. I would take a road trip to somewhere beautiful
5. I would write everyone goodbye letters, so that they could actually have some closure.

Have you ever met a celebrity before? Not 'I waited in a line with a bunch of other people, and he/she gave me an autograph!', but that you actually got to meet them and talk with them, for however short a time?

If you have gotten to meet a celebrity, did they act like you hoped they might have? Were they nice?

If you haven't gotten to meet one...what celebrity would you like to meet?

I've tried google-ing this, and contacting the maker of the layout, but I can't get an answer.

I found this amazing myspace layout that I love, minus one thing. The creator of the layout put a filter on the text, to make everything you type lowercase.

It's CSS code btw.

What's the code for that filter, so I can remove it?

WHERE'S MY PHONE! Oh, here it is. I'M PISSED ANYWAY!

Everyone in my family is angry all the time over nothing. I clean my entire house everyday. If I miss one tiny spot, there's screaming. Someone dropped a pencil. Oops! Screaming. Why can't some people just calm the shit down and realize life is too short to be perpetually angry?

Do live with or are surrounded by pissy people? How do you deal with it?

Why did my ex wail like a crazed woman? That was mean.

Is there any way to get along better with my co workers besides going out and getting drunk with them?

Is it wrong for me to just want to spend more time with my wife and child then with them?

It seems to me like every so often people at work will ask me if I want to go out and drink with them, or go out and do something (normally stupid), and when I say no (because I don't like spending that much time at work, let alone with my coworkers) it seems like they try to come after me.

Also, I refused to sleep with one of my superiors, and she is taking it out on me now. How do I stop this?

You know that new show on NBC, Journeyman? I heard a rumor that there was going to be a TV show based on "The Time Traveler's Wife" - is this it?

Have you watched this show? I'm watching it right now and I have to say, it is making me really upset but I can't seem to stop watching (because now I want to know how it ends). [The day he keeps going back to - Oct 17, 1989 - still makes me sick just thinking about it.]

Anyone want to draw a picture to be used for my band's demo artwork? It's going to be called Death Piñata. Do with that what you will.

And if there are no takers, does anyone know of a forum or website that takes requests such as these?
