Anyone here ever use any sort of scar reduction cream/ointment, specifically on old scars?

Which brand did you use? How well did it work? (If you remember) Where did you buy it/how much did it cost?

I probably don't, but I feel as though I need to explain this question: A few months ago I ran my bike into some barbed wire while wearing shorts (in my defense there was not supposed to be a random, half-fallen down barbed wire fence on that trail, but yeah I'm still an idiot) so now I have a bunch of scars on my legs. They are Not. Pretty.

Good Monday TQC! (or whatever day/time it is where you are, for me, it's 8:33am)

*So, I have a 1000 word essay due on Thursday. How should I split up my time writing it? All today? 333 words a day? All Wednesday night? HELP ME MAKE CHOICES, INTERNET!
*I am going to the doctor to get medication for panic attacks today. Have you ever taken any meds for that? Details?
*It's 8:35 now, and I have a class at 9:30, and I still have to eat, shower, get dressed, and do homework. Do you ever procrastinate this well?
*Is there anything you'd like to share with me? A story, a rant, a complement, an insult? Now is your chance! go!

What do you do to get yourself focused? I've been staring at my essay prompts for 3 days...and I keep getting distracted

I'm trying to get out of an on-again-off-again relationship. We're technically off, but every time this has happened he's changed his mind and asked to get back together, and I agreed. I want to be prepared for if that happens and not do this again, but I don't have a lot of faith in myself as I've chosen to try again about 15 times in the last year (not joking). I've screwed all my friends over and can't really talk about it with my family. Is there a place I can go to to get help with this? I don't have insurance for a counselor. I would love someone who's been through this that I can talk to when things get tough. Can I go to a women's organization of some sort?

1) So, Madonna was photographed carrying a strap-on a while ago. Do you think she's doing Guy Ritche in the butt with it?

2) As soon as I read that, I ran to tell my mom about it because we trade celebrity news all the time. She didn't know what a strap-on was! Does your mom/would your mom know what a strap-on is?

3) Speaking of strap-ons (I'm just in a 'talking about strap-ons' kinda mood!), when I was about 12 I was playing hide and seek with two girls, Friend-A and Friend-B. We were in Friend-A's house. Friend-B tried to hide in Friend-A's parent's closet and found a strap-on on one of the shelves. She screamed and I came running in with Friend-A.

-If you were Friend-A, would you be freaked out at having found a strap-on in your parents closet?

-If you were Friend-B, would you have screamed or done something else?

4) My other friend's boyfriend told her he wanted to try buttsex. She's very uncomfortable about the idea and doesn't want to, but he wouldn't let it drop. So, she said that she would do it, on one condition: If he goes and buys a strap on and lets her use it on him first. Now he has dropped the idea because he thinks getting it in the ass by his girlfriend would be "nasty". What do you think of this arrangment? Doesn't Shanda's boyfriend sound like a dickhead? 

5) Do you own a strap-on? Do you use it?

6) How are you today anyway? Shall I rub your shoulders, m'dear?

Good morning TQC!

1. How fucking much do you love Apologise by One Republic & Timbaland?
2. What are your plans for today? Or tomorrow if it's night time where you are.
3. What's the most insulting thing your SO (ex, current or otherwise) has ever said to you without actually meaning to be insulting?


1. THIS MUCH.
2. Laze around in bed all day, collect the kids from school, cook dinner, laze around in bed some more. It's a thrilling life.
3. My boyfriend told me on Friday that he liked the line bit on my groin/hips my where my belly started to stick out. I was like '.........................................................' And he looked horrified when he realised that it was most definitely not a good thing to say, bless him, so I couldn't get too angry. Even so. I just don't know what he was thinking.

Anime

No matter how many times I've tried to watch it, keeping an open mind, and thinking that there must be something that I'm just missing, I still really hate anime.

Anyone else not get what's so incredible about it?

Is there something you can't stand that lots of other people think is awesome?

Batman stickers?

Can anyone tell me places where I might be able to find Batman stickers/decals?  Websites or stores, doesn't matter.  My boss has me on a mission to find at least one before we have to go to a funeral for a coworker this week.  Rolls/sheets of stickers would be great, too.

Preferably with the logo shown below, although it doesn't have to have the silver detail.  It seems I see them everywhere until I'm looking for them.  Thanks.

NHL 2003--PC

I decided to play my NHL 2003 on my computer since it has been sitting on my desk in a while. Well, when I went to go start a game, the centers were missing for the faceoff, and when the referee dropped the puck, the screen went black except for the scoreboard and the EA Sports symbol. I thought maybe it was the season, so I deleted it and made a new one, and the same thing happened.

Anyone have any ideas?

For the men

Hi boys,

You guys seem to get sort of left out here at TQC, so here's a few for you.

1) What do you find attractive in women?

2) Do you think you place as much importance on our weight as we do?  EDIT:  As in, does a girl's weight have a large amount of sway on whether you are interested in them?  If so, to what degree?  Do you have a range of weight you're OK with?  Do you think we worry about our weight way more than you even think about our weight? 

3) What scares you away, or has scared you away from a chick?

4) Anything else to add?  This is your time to shine!

Office phone woes

Help!

At my office, if you call and no one picks up after x amount of time, the call gets forwarded to a voicemail service (at a different number).

On Friday, I left the office early, so I dialed 72#[my cell number] to get calls forwarded to my cell.

This morning, I came in, dialed 73# to cancel the forwarding. It didn't work. I called Verizon, they told me it's supposed to be *73. Tried that, didn't work. Called them back, they said they'd look into it. They called me back, said it's not a problem on their end, call the VM company. So I did. Apparently, they can't do anything either, I need to contact some PBX thingamajig.

Ok, I'm stuck. I have no idea how the PBX thingamajig is, don't know know how to find out. I just want the office phone to ring instead of my cell!

So, TQC, I have a small dilemma.  I need to get this book read (about 330 pgs or so) before Wed night, when my book club meets.
note: in case you're curious, I didn't choose the book, and I didn't have close to $25 to shell out for it.  I was going to just bag reading it, but a friend just finished her copy and is lending it to me.

I have decided I will spend most of Wed reading it, but do I get off the computer now and start, and can I wait until tomorrow?  Any suggestions for how to divide up my reading time?

I know it's silly, but I will miss going without the fun and frolics that are tqc for the better part of two days - will you miss me?

Czech linguistics/phonetics

Dear TQC, what can you tell me about the Czech language/IPA that Wikipedia and my friends who dabble in linguistics cannot?

I'm learning a song in Czech, and while I've been provided with the IPA, I've come across several unfamiliar symbols. Several I solved on my own or with the help of friends; these remain WTF-ified.

Edit: If I were desperate for answers RIGHTNOW, I'd possibly go ask a linguistics comm, but there are reasons I amn't (like they'd argue about irrelevant bullshit).

Tampons don't work for me. I have tried using different absorbencies/brands/etc. and I really don't think I'm putting them in wrong. I always have to wear a pad or pantyliner along with my tampons because no matter what I always leak a little bit. I don't want to use pads only because they're gross.

It doesn't bother me that much, but is there anything I can do? Or am I stuck using both tampons and pads for the rest of my life (well, until menopause)?

Partially inspired by this post.


So my best friend is dating/sleeping with one of the [two?] managers at CompUSA. I've been really unhappy with my job, and I found out that they are hiring through him. He said that if I applied he'd tell the manager above him to keep an eye out for my application. Basically, he guaranteed me a job there over all the other applicants.

If you were me, would you apply? If you were working somewhere and found out your newest coworker got the position because of this situation, would you think differently of them?


I was seriously considering it, but I felt kind of guilty about the advantage. Yesterday my coworker was fired, and I am now getting the hours I needed (I have bills to pay!). I'm going to stay at my current job, but was still curious about your opinions :-)

Bosses Day

Tomorrow, 10/16/07 is "Bosses Day", another made up Hallmark Holiday. I am unsure if I should buy a little card for my boss because quite frankly I don't think she's a great boss and I'm frustrated with her. On the other hand, while at the store with her last week we came upon a display of Bosses Day cards and we both acknowledged them - so she KNOWS I know it's Bosses Day. To not give a card could be making a statement of how I feel about her management.

Do you plan on acknowledging your boss or superior for Bosses Day? Would you do so if you weren't crazy about how your boss managed people?

3. If you did take them and didn't really worry about switching your diet and exercise more, what happened in result?


For everyone:
4. What do you think about diet pills? Useful, completely unessecary, indifferent?

For who haven't taken them:
5. Would you ever take them if you haven't?

Everybody Poops

The newspaper at my school recently emailed a pretty boring survey that focused mainly on hand-washing and other daily hygiene practices. [Also, cell phone use in the bathroom. Ew.] The last question, however, was interesting -- it's the first question here.

- What’s the most unsanitary thing you’ve seen a fellow student do in a shared or public place on campus? [Amend as necessary for family, coworkers, colleagues.. hell, strangers in public places.]

- Do you ever talk on the phone while going to the bathroom? Are there extenuating circumstances that will compel you to do so?

- I know [/of] several people who will not or cannot use public restrooms for a variety of nervous reasons -- if this is the case for you, is it only true for multi-stall restrooms, or 'one-holers' as well?

If you found  out a friend got their job by sleeping with the manager would you lose respect for them? What if they didn't get the job that way, but were getting priveleges for sleeping with the manager?
The interview I'm going to is at a store I used to work in, and I just remembered that a girl there slept with most of the managers and got special priveleges for it, like vacation time or choosing her own hours. She was very proud of it, but it always kind of bothered me. I'm thinking I may not work there if her or the managers are still there, it was very uncomfortable.

Rings

Is your ring finger size and shoe size the same or close to it?

I hear this works to find out a girl's ring size.

Any suggestions on how to subtly find out a girl's ring size?

Taxi drivers who use GPS: a good idea or an indication that they have no idea what they're doing?

I had a taxi driver who used GPS a few nights ago. Then he made a wrong turn and when the GPS corrected him (it turns out he only had to go .08 miles extra so it wasn't that big of a deal) he started completely flipping out. He kept saying, "I'm going the wrong way! Jesus! Jesus!" He said "Jesus" so many times in a period of two minutes that he was making me very nervous. He kept telling me what was going on with his GPS and how it indicated he was going the wrong way (okay, I. don't. care. Just get me to the right place). Anyway, it was a very traumatic experience for me when it didn't have to be. He could have just said, "Whoops, went the wrong way, I'll just stop the meter now, sorry." But instead he had to freak the hell out. Then when the GPS corrected him he was about to turn back and probably would have screwed up even more had I not advised him to do what the GPS said because it was the one that knew the directions, not him. Obviously.

I tipped him really well because he ended up parking several houses down from where I needed to be and walking me up to the right address. I just wanted to get the hell out of there.

polygamy, creativity, IQ tests, and flickr

1. For those of you in a polygamous polyamorous (I get it guys, thanks) relationship: if you're dating two guys, for example, do both of them date just you, or do they also date each other, do they date other people besides you and the other guy...? HOW DOES IT WORK?

2. Do you know anyone who is both very creative AND organized? I don't know anyone with both of those qualities. Artists just seem to be messy people, it's part of their charm.

I admit, even if you tell me that you do know someone like this, I don't think I'll believe you. It just doesn't seem possible.

3. This is homework, but your answer will in no way influence or help my essay: do you think IQ tests accurately measure intelligence?

4. Do any of you want to be my friend on Flickr? I just bought a pro account yesterday after using Flickr for over a year. I don't have a ton of contacts and I'd like more comments and suggestions on my photos, and I'd love to see what you people are photographing!

I'm writing my thesis acknowledgements. Is it:

"Her patience and thoughtful advice during this process has been greatly appreciated."

or

"Her patience and thoughtful advice during this process have been greatly appreciated." ??


The first one sounds right, but the second one seems to make more sense because I'm listing two things.

I know, I know, spare me the jokes about a university granting a master's degree to a guy who can't even form a proper sentence.

I'm in Starbucks right now and two women next to me are attempting to communicate with the baby that one of them is "meant to have," who is apparently in heaven. One of them seems to be the medium between the woman and her child, and both are very enthusiastic about every single thing that has happened, taking each as a sign. The woman trying to become pregnant has apparently gone on a 12 day diet of rice, skipped to music, and various other odd activities.

Has anyone ever heard of this before? She has a book with her titled "Spirit Babies: Communicating With the Child You are Meant to Have."

Anyone know anything about this?

Hello thequestionclub, I have many a question for you today.

1. What college do you go to?
1a. Was it your first choice?
1b. Would you choose it again if you had to go back and re-apply? (or similar applicable situations)

2. For those of you with banking knowledge: My paycheck was recently withdrawn from my account (long story) and though I'll be getting it back, I want to know what this means (if you know) : COMMENT / RTN CK ON MIGUELS NSF (MTM) (Miguel's is the name of my employer)

3. Do you think it is fair for someone to stay in a relationship even if they don't enjoy it any more, just for the other person's sake?
3a. Who is it more unfair to?
3b. Would you end said relationship?

4. What do you think of the following statement: "Don't date bisexual men, they will bring disease home to you."

A stretch back I took a lot of unusual holidays off Wikipedia and one of them was Scotchtoberfest. Unfortunately, Wikipedia is doing a lot of redirects for some odd reason so the page for this holiday doesn't seem to exist anymore.

Thus, I put it to you, as it is to be celebrated this coming Sunday, what is Scotchtoberfest?

I've never followed a routined life. I think I'm probably in the minority though. I don't and have never had set meal times, I always just turned up to school when I wanted to and didn't when I didn't want to, I go to sleep whenever I'm tired - despite the time, I don't do certain tasks everyday, I lead a very spontantious life, I do what I want to do when I want to do it.

So...

1. Is your life heavily based on routine?
2. Has it always been? Will I change as I get older?
3. What factors in a person's life decide whether they are routined or not? (Personality, upbringing, ammount of responsibility, ect?)
4. Are routines beneficial?
5. What type of person do you imagine me to be because of my lack of routine? (Vice versa?)

TV

1. is season 1 of grey's anatomy worth watching, or should i skip right to season 2? i am considering going to the video store right now to pick one up.

2. i own the entire sex and the city series pack thing. however, i left season six part one disc one when i moved out of my ex's house and he won't give it back. how can i get this one disc or those particular episodes? every website i try and download them from online never works or takes hours. i would actually prefer the disc.

3. today while walking my dog in the park, i saw two ducks fighting. it was awesome. they were hitting each other with their wings and pecking at each other! OMG it was seriously sweet. what is the coolest thing you have seen animals do (not necessarily counting pets)?

4. i have heard various reasons why cow milk might be bad for me. however, i am in love with milk. i drink about a gallon every 5 days of skim. is this good or bad or neither?

5. what do you love and know it's bad for you, but are unwilling to give up? chai tea lattes b/c i just discovered them, and beer.

Online workshops

I've been doing absolutely NOTHING, because some crap happened with school and am waiting for my job to start in a few weeks.

I suddently got interested in online workshops or free self learning courses. I am using www.free-ed.net right now, but I was wondering:

1. Do you also do free learning classes online?
2. Could you direct me to any sites?
3. What subject are you most interested in/passionate about?

New question related to the old one that has been answered: Do any of these places do 5x7 or 8x10 sizes? I forgot to ask that, and they're what I'd definitely prefer.

This is totally illogical - I'm 26 years old, have never really played an instrument before, but have a total urge to start taking violin lessons. I'm absolutely positive that I'll suck at it, but it's something that I really want to try.

There are places that offer basic lessons to adults instead on like, 8 year olds, right?

My roommate is screaming at her mother on the phone because she won't give her $400 for a security deposit for an apartment she HAS to have next year. Said roommate has never held a job in her life and refuses to get one to raise the $400.

Which brings the questions...

1. At what age was your first job?

2. At what age did you consider yourself financially independent?

3. What were the factors that made you independent at this age? (Did you move out, go to college, get a full-time job and pay your parents rent like a tenant, etc?)

4. My other roommate thinks she's financially independent, but gets a $300/mo allowance from her parents. Is she deluded y/n?
