Why? How did you do it? Was it worth it?
I personally interpret it as a negative idea, an extreme, distateful, offensive level of sexual interest. My friend, on the other hand, interprets being perverted to me just means having a healthy sexual appetite.
I'm applying to grad. schools and I'm considering sending out apps. to some Canadian schools (they are super cheap and in awesome cities). But application fees are serious business so all things being equal what city do you think?
Which Canadian city would you live in?
ETA: Please explain why in the comments.
2. Why does it seem like people of color are better dancers? Is it some sort of cultural tradition?
I learned EVERYTHING about the world from that lil guy and still have him.
I have regular pierced ears. A friend of mine gave me a pair of earrings from Peru that are made of wood, and the sticks that go through my ears were a little big for me.
One of the sticks was tapered, so I used it to slowly stretch the holes to big enough for the sticks because I love these earrings. This was over the course of a few days.
Now one of my pierces is bleeding. The other one is fine, doesn't hurt a bit.
Is there anything I should do about the bleeding?
Is it my ex-boyfriend or a cat?
ETA: Also, should I get off my lazy ass and go open the garage door to see what comes running out?
It was my puppy! :( My mom went and took the trash outside or something and my puppy followed her, but didn't make it inside. My mom must've thought she's been sleeping with me (I thought she was in bed with my mom) so neither of us thought she was missing. Oh, she'd been out there for hours. Poor thing, she's getting lots of cuddles now.
I'm really glad it wasn't the ex-boyfriend though, tbh.
If you have a SO, do they look similar to one of your parents? (father if your SO's a guy, mother if your SO is a girl.)
Is it ever worth it?
Does anyone else not have to work on Friday?
Do you think it is stupid for Disney to be pressured to keep the word 'GOD' out of the movie ad?
Would you be offended if they used this word?
Would you be offended if it were a movie about another religion and they used the name of their God?
2. Are tornadoes something you get where you live?
3. If not, do you get some other type(s) of weather disasters, instead?
4. When was the last time that the weather interfered with your plans?
5. When was the last time that the weather caused your school/work to be canceled/delayed?
ETA: Where are you located?
My favorite baseball team, the Cleveland Indians are playing the Red Sox for a chance to get into the World Series.
Both are on at practically the same time.
Which should I watch? (Since I don't like to flip channels)
What's the best P2P program for downloading music (preferrably the whole album) to a Mac? In the search I did last night, I couldn't find anything that was Mac specific.
Do you or have you ever gone to therapy?
Why do you think this generation coming up is so more "Emo" then generations before?
How do you de-stress?
I called my office and told my boss that I've got a sick kid (didn't discover that I was suffering the same issue until after I got off of the phone with her) and that I wouldn't be able to make it into the office today.
I was getting my son out of his high chair and my office called my cell once already (30 minutes into my usual "shift"). I couldn't get to the phone in time, and they didn't leave a voicemail.
Should I answer calls from the office today? Or should I let them go to voicemail? I mean, is it really a sick day/day off if I'm on the phone with the office all day??
2. What do you put in your coffee besides cream and sugar?
3. Why is coffee the best thing ever invented? EVER?!?!
4. The news is telling me I'm going to die of a tornado today. Should I skip my one and only class to camp out in the basement or is it bad that I'm missing out on a wonderful education?
5. What do you think of EVPs? (Electronic Voice Phenomenon, ghost stuff)
6. Are you scared of antique dolls, cause I am.
What is the hardest?
Is this a good idea, or does it offend your delicate sensibilities?
ETA: Do you think I'm pregnant? If so, why?
So, TQC, how does it make you feel when one question is x-posted to here and 50 other places?
When you see a question x-posted, do you respond to both?
Do you have any other sites like this to recommend?
Waht is the worst experience you have had dealing with a business establishment?
TQC: is 13 old enough to make an informed decision about your sexual health?
The three hour drive would be okay... except I don't have a car. I already have plans for a trip coming up in a few weeks, and I need to make travel arrangements.
How can I bribe my boyfriend to be my chauffeur?
Srs or non-srs answers welcome
except not any form of sex from me, or hookers & blow
eta: okay whatever, those answers are welcome too
If so, do you like/dislike the taste?
Do you flavor your water, and if so, with what?
Edit: answered. I R DUM SUMTYMES.
...legally change your name? Anything you want, but you can no longer answer to your current name
...get Lisa Rinna lips for the rest of your life?
...go running with the bulls in Pamplona wearing high heels?
...spend an entire year in a small cabin in the middle of nowhere? There's no electricity, no phone connections, and you're only allowed to bring 5 books with you. You can have no visitors
...agree to have the power to kill through touch, for one month? Anyone who makes contact with your skin will be fatally poisoned and die within seconds. Yourself included. You just have to find some way to endure for 30 days...and also find a way to avoid touching yourself
"Don't let anybody tell you differently."
Should it be anyone? Different instead of differently? I am reading Heroes episodes on Television Without Pity and they did a [sic] after the aforementioned sentence, and I'm wondering what they mean.
There is a small problem: I don't have money for a doctor's appointment, or for the antibiotics.
Will this go away on my own? Are there any herbal pills I can take? What has worked for you, when you were too poor to pay for your medical visits/antibiotics?
If you were smoking, and diagnosed with asthma, did you continue to smoke? Or did you quit?
2. What cake do you usually get at the Cheesecake Factory?
3. Why can't my office get anyone to take free Redskins (as in, the football team) tickets? Are they really that bad of a team?
4. Can I see a picture from your last vacation?
5. Any plans for the weekend?
Where do you go?
How do you keep your self going?
Someone who is a dedicated worker but can't spell very well, hasn't graduated high school and has worked a printing press, at a parts store and the parts department of an automotive dealership.
I'm trying to put it together and I'm just a little perplexed, it's not as easy as I thought it might be. He's a great worker bee who has real potential to be a manager of sorts - in the blue collar industry, mind you.
Anyone have any suggestions or examples?
Are you idealistic?
Why/why not? Please explain.
What should I do with the next 6 hours?
[edit:] i decided to ride my bike to the library, get a few books, and then come back, start the laundry, and watch an episode of lost. After the laundry, I will hang out with my friend for awhile until 6, when I have a meeting. VOILA! Problem solved! I think I'll put off french until tomorrow, it's really for my own benefit anyway.
"So me and 2 friends are going to be flying to Vegas soon. We have mushrooms that we would like to take with us but we don't want to get caught and thrown in jail. My friend says that drug dogs can't sniff them out since they are just mushrooms, they smell like a vegetable. So could we pull it off?
Also, I know this has been asked a lot but, what is you Halloween costume?"
2. have you ever cheated on a past or current SO?
3. if yes, why?
4. has a past or current SO ever cheated on you?
5. do you know many people who are angrier, or bitter or meaner because they've been slighted or cheated on by someone they loved?
6. how do you prevent this from happening when it's happened to you?
7. how can i cheer up my friend kym who has good reason to think her bf cheated on her? (other than joking that we should call maury and get him to do a test on teevee)
i cant think of another popular phrase that means the same thing, and i dont really want to be throwing the word "God" around in UCSC bioethics class...
EDIT: k no more "heaven forbids." i was actually more looking for a new phrase that has roughly the same meaning and would fit into this sentence:
Having the information public greatly increases the chances of a cure being found if, ___________, another pandemic does break out.
I borrowed a pencil from (and met) themournfulduck and her boyfriend!
2. Should I go home this weekend? It's 700 miles round trip (about 11 hours) to play a percussion gig in my hometown. I have to finish my essay (only 600 words), and the gas is free. But I am awfully tired, and my friend who is driving and I have been fighting a bit lately. But I will finally get to play a percussion gig, after nearly a year. WHAT WOULD YOU DO, TQC?
3. Should I have Thai soup, clam chowder, chicken enchilada soup, or garden veggie soup for dinner?
We're 4 episodes into the new season, what are your thoughts and predictions?
I can't find a good reliable place to watch House this season (tv-links.co.uk has been iffy for me lately, and I've been lazy and haven't found a torrent). Am I missing anything interesting?
I'm going to the French speaking part of Belgium tomorrow for a couple of days (I have no idea which city, helpful I know). Is there anything "typically Belgian" that I MUST do or try?
2. Do Birkenstocks make you look like an asshole?
3. How often do you wash your bedsheets? Comforter? Mattress pad? What temperature?

2) Be real now, do you look down on others? For what?
3) If you work in an office, can I see a picture of it? Or your dorm room. Whichever.
4) Do you read things that you have to sign?
5) Will you tell me two truths and a lie?
When she is finally out and can call me, what should I say to her?
What do you think about blue cheese crumbled into/on chili?
Let's say that this takes place 50 years into the future. You're 18, about to graduate high school. You have a scholarship waiting for you at a good college, a beloved SO that you care about very much, and are generally happy in life. One day, you're driving, and you take your eyes off the road ever briefly to change the CD or dial a phone number or whatever, and you don't see the person in the road. Bump. You're tried with manslaughter, and even though you throw yourself at the mercy of the court, the prosecuting attorney manages to taint you as an unlikable character, and between the jury and the judge, you end up serving 7 years in prison. Prison was traumatizing and you had to do a lot of things you'd like to forget in order to survive. During your stay in county, your SO falls in love with someone else, your family generally regards you as a fuckup and of course, your scholarship is gone. Once you're out of prison, you seek therapy and without meaning to, you wind up with an addiction to painkillers. Seeking employment, the only thing you're qualified for is a graveyard shift, minimum wage, dead end job with no chance of promotion and with no health insurance. You're living at home and your parent/s regard your presence as an unwelcome intrusion into their lives that they have to endure, but you're not earning enough to find a place of your own. Life is in the crapper.
But this is the future, and there's time travel. You consider going back in time and warning your 18 year old self to keep their eyes on the fucking road the day of the 'incident', and maybe your life now would be perfect. You save up some money and you show up at the Time Travel Terminal (TTT) with a friend to make the jump into the past to correct your mistake. As you're about to enter the facility, your friend brings up the fact that you're about to alter the time continuum, and who knows what repercussions might occur if something changed 7 years ago? The present as you know it will probably be very different indeed, not only for you but everyone. Maybe the person you killed would go on to have a major impact on the world, good or bad. Maybe the person who took your place at university would make better use of the experience than you, maybe your SO is happier with the new person, maybe the child of the accident victim went on to overcome her grief and reach potential that previously she wouldn't have thought possible. Who knows. Then again, on the other hand, life since the accident has been one enormously long shitstorm for you and doesn't look to get any better.
1. Would you change the past to salvage your present, or leave things the way they are?

13. Assuming that elementary music was your first musical education setting, how would you say your class/teacher influenced the role music plays in your life today?
14. Where are you from?
Sorry it's so lengthy, everyone. If you don't want to answer everything, at least just number 13. I'm not doing a project, but I do want to see how people react to their teachers. It seems that everyone I know who is really active in music had the same music teacher I did in elementary school, but there are some who were from neighboring schools who just didn't give a crap. I honestly believe that it's the fault of the first music teacher we had, and I want to know how it is outside of Harrison Township, MI.
what's your favorite memory?
what's something you're never going to forget?
Oh, and I'm also related to Attila the Hun somewhere back there. Who are some famous ancestors of yours?
2. have you ever dated someone for a long time (4+ years) and not known who they are at all?
i've got an ex that i was with for ~5yrs. we were really good friends for awhile, talked every day etc, then he suddenly stopped talking to me when he met some dumb new girl; no explanation, i didn't do anything to provoke it. i saw via facebook they got matching tattoos. lol what. he's never wanted one before or anything. it's big and on his forearm, so it's not like it's not obvious. i'm moreso disturbed by the fact that i don't know him anymore. it's a very weird and unsettling feeling.
your thoughts? serious answers encouraged, witty answers accepted. thanks.
Did it work out well for you?
I can't get mine to work :(
Do you look like your parents?
Do you have siblings? Do you look like them?
Do you have kids? Did they look like you when they were born? Do they now?

If you never had to trick-or-treat in bad weather, please share your worst trick-or-treating experience - how old were you and what made it bad?
my apologies in advance for the tmi nature of this question -
I have not changed my (fyi: super absorbency) tampon in the five hours since I inserted it, and I just went to pee for the fourth time! So tell me, oh wise TQC - how gross am I??
They have said that they are going to pay my first and last deposite for me, so I only have to come up with the monthly rent, so, how would you use this to your advantage?
I can afford a two bedroom apartment, but I don't want a roomate, or have that much stuff, so why do I want it so much?
Should I gradually pack up all my things, or pack them all up when the time comes?
They say this is going to become a very stressful time for me. What can I do to deal with the stress?
Sorry for all spelling mistakes, I am very tired and at work and too lazy to fix them.
For those of you who have accounts, do you have people that you don't know too well - maybe old friends from LJ or just the random few myspace friends you made right when you joined that you still like somehow but you only say something to them a few times a year? (I'm not talking about if you just add random people you don't know just because they invited you to be a friend as a habit.)
What is it about the person that makes you not delete them? ...meh, this could actually just be a livejournal question. So replace 'myspace' with 'livejournal' and answer that.
How many car accidents have you been in? What happened and who's fault was it/were they?
Have you ever been involved in a road rage incident before? What happened?
Do you find that a lot of people in your town just simply are bad drivers?
Edit: Why is it that LJ is so fascinating and fun when you actually have stuff to do, but so god-awful boring when you're actually looking to kill time?
2. My cousin, who was my best friend, ditched me on a vacation we had been planning for months because she didn't have the money to go. I saved up the entire time, so I went without her and now she doesn't seem to want to talk to me and is preoccupied by her new roommate/best friend. I feel left out. Advice??!!!
3. What else is new?
Edit: 4. What would happen if AI or brain-computer interfaces or smarter-than-human entities rapidly accelerated technological progress beyond capability of human beings to particpate meaningfully? Would a random human underdog save us, or are we biting the big one?
Are you male or female or trans?
i feel so shitty when my adderall wears off that unless i'm doing something important, i don't take it, just to avoid the crash. that's not good because if i'm not on adderall i'm likely to walk into a moving car or something stupid like that.

Have you ever gone to another country and eaten something that is not served as food in the country you're from? What was it and how was it?
I've got two potential jobs for this summer.
Job A: Basically, I did any paperwork that needed doing. Lots of co-worker infighting, and the work itself was dead boring. But I got paid $11.10 an hour, and there's a high possibility of a raise for students who return for a third year. (This would be my third year.) Also, paid statutory holidays.
Job B: Doesn't list the pay or hours, but it's from a reliable source. Also, work experience for a field I'm interested in.
The deadline for applying for job B is January 31st, and I'd be contacted by the end of March. There isn't really an application deadline for job A, but I think applying in April for a job starting in May would be cutting things a bit too fine.
So, what should I do?
(I've spilled tomato soup twice and crystal light once, wtf?)
If you have a job, what is your favorite part about it?
2. I'm starting a new blog/website of reviews. Any good ideas for how to spread the word about it/where to put ads for it? (I'm not going to link so it's not a show-off-a-link question, I'll tell you if you ask though).
3. Is there any polite way to tell somebody that maybe they should trim their nosehairs? Is there anybody you know well enough that you would say that to them?
4. What have you lost your enthusiasm for since you've gotten older?
5. Are you easy to shop for when it comes to your birthday or Christmas?
TQC, when was the last time you hurt yourself? What was the injury?
Do I need anger management classes?
Any ideas? I've tried switching it on and off to see if it picks up another transmitter but that hasn't worked. She's with Vodaphone who usually have a really good coverage where we live.
x-posted because my mother is driving me nuts. Any help much appreciated :)
Edit: her inbox is empty.
Thanks to those who offered help. After a few frustrated calls to Vodafone and O2 (my network and who ended up solving the problem!) I discovered my mother had managed to add my name to the 'Screened' list. So she was receiving my texts but they weren't going in to her in box.
In keeping with the question theme, what drives you crazy about your parents? With me, it's my mother's ability to do strange things to technology.
We don't want to spend too much(400.00 being our max price. Not that we're cheap, we could just use any extra money for something more important).
So tell me TQC, where can I find cheap engagement rings online?
Edit: We found the perfect ring on Amazon.com! Thanks for all of your suggestions!!!! I can't wait until it gets here :-)
We sent out an issue for publication and unfortunately the principal got to the newspapers before we did and threw all 3,000 issues in the trashcan [I hope he recycled them].
There was a story on the front News page that he didn't think was "appropriate" for our High School news paper to write about because it doesn't affect us, when in reality it does.
It was a well written, unbiased article on how the district is forcing all teachers to complie a list of ALL supplimental material (handouts, articles, movies, etc.) aside from the text book and have EACH [which could be hundreds] and have parents approve EVERYTHING, as well as the district. Teachers think this rule is ridiculous, and students should be aware of this new implemented rule.
As Editor-in-Chief I was forced to make a decision- either publish an explination in that blank space as to why the story wasn't published, leave it blank, or add a crappily last minute-written story.
I chose the latter after a very heated argument with the Principal.
But now it's time to really take action, so TQC, what do you suppose I do in the name of Freedom of Press and Freedom of Speech?
Should we contact every local newspaper?
Pass out flyers to the student body?
I have verizon wireless.
2. Do you, like me, have a difficult time shopping WITH someone? I find that I'm never in the same shopping "mood" as a friend. Sometimes, I want to just run in and run out. Sometimes I feel like spending hours in a store, trying stuff on and buying lots. And sometimes I feel like just window shopping. Because of this, I always feel like I'm annoying whoever I'm with so I mostly go alone.
3. Where do you buy most of your clothes?
4. Do you wear hats in the winter?

And although I don't mind not being a slutty sheep, I also don't wanna be that one girl who doesn't look like she's supposed to be there.
Any suggestions on how to make a cannibal costume semi-cute? Thanks!
What would you do to try and e-seduce latenightdrives?

MILKSHAKE OR PEPSI?
Music is a big thing with me, and my mom tends to show some interest in the same bands I do, too; at least, when I talk about various bands and singers with her, she knows who they are. My father...not so much.
My question to you, TQC, is this: do you try to involve your parents with your interests, hobbies, etc? Or, if you are a parent, do you try to show interest in things that your kids like? Why or why not?
Also, I have bangs that cover half of my forehead. I part my hair really far over, too. Do I get my nose piercing on the opposite side of the part or on the opposite side of my bangs?

Thanksgiving at my house absolutely blows and I will be moving home indefinitely anyway so it's not going to matter if I miss one more year (I never go home for Thanksgiving).

WTF bathroom readers! When/how do you have time to just sit there? What are you waiting for? Is there a long pause between when you sit down till when things start to happen? Or do you go into the washroom at random times during the day and just wait and see if anything comes out? Do you sit there after you're done, unwiped and reading?? I am so confused.
When i get the urge i just sit on the toilet, go almost instantly, wipe and i'm done. It takes less than a minute. Are you different?
