TQC, I am needing help with hair dye.

I'm pretty good at dying my own hair, have done it every colour of the rainbow, short, long, mullets...what have you with colour and cut. However, I am getting older and it's time for me to exist it the real world. For this reason, I'd like to dye my hair a sad and neutral brown. However, I am totally confused when it comes to the 'cool' and 'warm' tones, because before I didn't give a shit.

Is there a way to tell if I need a more blue/cool tone than a more golden/warm tone? I was going to out to buy dye within the next couple of days and don't want to buy the wrong tone, because I actually give a shit about my appearance now.

Dear TQC, would you happen to know knowledge of these 'tones' I speak of? How can I figure out which one would look better?

Gas prices

For those of you that drive, what is the lowest you can remember ever paying for gas?

For me, when I first got my license way back in 1995, I can remember gas being about 93 cents a gallon ( in USD).

1. How long do you hold a grudge for?

2. If someone who hated your guts suddenly, after not speaking to you for 12 years, asked for a favour, would you do it? (nothing big, just to pick something up for them and mail it to them..not like a kidney or anything :P )

3. Can you truly forgive and forget?

 My jaw clicks a lot when I'm talking/chewing/whatever, it clicks. I've had it looked at and the dentist said there was no actual damage going on, so it's fine for now. Lately though the very left and uppermost part of my jaw, right about where it connects, hurts every time I move it. I don't remember hitting it or opening my mouth really wide or anything that could have irritated it, but it hurts a lot when I yawn or when I'm chewing.

Since it's in a kind of strange spot, is that definitely something I would go to the dentist for, or would I go to a different doctor? I'm going to the dentist soon, so if I just see him it would be nice not to have to make more appointments.

Does your jaw click? Have you ever had this before? Is my jaw going to fall off? D:

Super glue

Hello, hope this is community appropriate.

I have super glue all over my fingertips. To be specific: Ethyl Cyanoacrylate. I didn't realise it sets so very quickly!

I Googled and found out that acetone takes it off, so grabbed my nailpolish remover only to realise it's a *non acetone* nailpolish remover!! So it hasn't removed the glue.

Any other ideas for removal? Or, where do I get pure acetone in small, cheap quantities? (Other than going into my university bio lab and using theirs, I'm guessing it would be locked anyway!)

Inspired by cake_n_bacon's question:

My nose has been broken a few times, as far as I can remember. Once, by being slammed into the side of the kitchen counter, once by being smashed into a chalkboard tray, and once in an otherwise rather enjoyable mosh pit. Needless to say, my nose is a little messed up.

If I place my finger on the side of my nose, near the bottom, and push slightly, my nose makes an awful clicking sound. It's not painful in any way - it's just a very loud clicking sound, that can be easily heard even from the other side of a large room. (Grosses the hell out of my father, which I guess is a positive thing about it.) I've been able to make this clicking sound for a few years. I don't think my nose is broken at the moment, but still...

1.) What the hell is wrong with my nose?
2.) Does this probably have something to do with how many times my nose has been broken? (I mean, yeah, that seems like the most likely cause, but you never know...)

Yesterday when I went to charge my cell phone it told me the battery was unavailable. When I went out later that night, my phone just went dead on me without any warning. I'd try to turn it out and only the keypad would light up- nothing else. I figured it was just dead or something. However when I came home to plug it into the charge it, the screen just said "Invalid Battery." I left it like plugged in overnight to see if it'd change. It still said Invalid Battery this morning. When I took it off the charger and tried to turn it on it looked like it was going to work. Then it said Invalid Battery again and went dead.

Does anyone know what's wrong with my phone? I have a stupid Motorola Razor btw. My service is Verizon. Is there anyway to fix this or am I going to have to go into Verizon?

1. Do you think dressing modestly (for whatever reason, religiously or not) really keeps men from oogling women? Specifically refering to regular everyday clothes, not a tiny tubetop and mini skirt where pretty much the reason you are wearing it is to be notice.

2. Do you treat or view people differently based on the way they are dressed? Let's say they are both the same gender and at work in an office, one person is wearing jean and a t-shirt, the other is wearing a business suit. Or one is wearing a skirt that touches just above the knees and a v-neck shirt and the other is wearing long, loose pants and a turtleneck.

3.  Females: Does it ever really scare you that so many terrible things are likely to happen to you simply because you were born a female?

TQC, what was the last thing that pissed you off?

I stayed up most of the night working on a performance for class today (I went to bed at 4am). I did go to a party for a couple of hours, but came back home really early to finish and perfect it.

I got to class today to see a note on the door saying class was cancelled.

I'm surrounded by crazy people!

1. I work at a day care. I have a co-worker that is known to blow up at other co-workers. Her latest fiasco yesterday involved dropping the f-bomb in front of kids (and some parents!) and use of the insult "fat-ass".

Would you want somebody like that taking care of your kids? Because as far as I know (which isn't much), she still has her job.

2. When are you going to put up your Christmas tree?

My fiance says now that Halloween is over, he's going to start putting up the Christmas stuff this weekend. I say it's too soon, and after Thanksgiving would be a bit more seasonal. He says Thanksgiving isn't really a holiday (he's a vegetarian and has no use for turkey).

El Dia de los Muertos

1) How do you celebrate your loved ones that have died?
Yesterday in my Spanish class we celebrated Dia de los Muertos and talked about our loved ones and it was really moving to me. I think it's really important to actually take the time to celebrate their lives and share with others how important they were to you rather than let them only survive in your mind.
2) Do you have any great memories/people that you'd like to share that have passed away?

My answers:
1) My family constantly talk about great memories involving my grandma and we visit the mausoleum where her ashes are stored quite often.
2) My grandma was an amazing woman. Mother of six, wife of an alcoholic who didn't help much, and she was so absolutely vivacious. She held my family together. She was hit by a car walking to church. Ironic and idiotic (the person was taking an unprotected left and just didn't even bother to look).

Why do people hate Tom Brady and the Patriots so much?

Is it because of the cheating thing? (Not that this excuses what they did- which I'm still pissed at them for- but there hasn't been any evidence of cheating since the story first broke.) Do you think they're trying to prove they can win without cheating now?

Is it because they win by so much? Why is winning by a blowout considered classless? Shouldn't any team in any sport play to the best of their ability, or should they hold back if they're winning by too much?

Is Coach Cowher (former Steelers coach) correct in saying someone's going to take a cheap shot at Tom Brady as revenge?

Poll #1081266 The New Pants

This question's mainly for the girls. Your friend asked to borrow your new pants, and you allow her to wear them to a party that night. You're both at the party, your friend's wearing your new pants, when she lets it slip (after a few drinks) that she isn't wearing any underwear. How do you feel about your friend's bare crotch rubbing against your new pants?

The pants are forever ruined for me
Bitch better dryclean those pants afterwards
Doesn't bother me in the slightest. I'll just throw them in the washer sometime and it'll be good to go.

At the party, she's drunk and she ends up making out with somebody. She comes back later, overstimulated, and blushes when she tells you that she's never been so damp before. How you feeling about those new pants now?

Eww. So much...vagina. I can't wear them again
I'm going to make her wash them by hand. Twice
It happens. I'll pour in some extra detergent when I wash them later

She passes out and you're about to take her to your car when you notice that there's a big urine stain on her/your pants. How you liking them pants now?

She's buying me a new pair of pants
Again, it happens. Detergent will get it all out

I'm going to be very hypocritical, starting...NOW.

My sister-in-law, R, has been venting to the Intar Wubs all day about how wronged she has been by the in-law of an in-law, crying "woe is me" and playing the victim to garner pity from her e-palz. Now, the other lady is being terribly misrepresented, and any of my family stepping in to point out her side of the situation is an "attack" on my brother's wife.
However, all of this could have been avoided had R chosen not to vent family laundry in a public forum -- or at least filtered it so family couldn't see it, and R-cheerleaders could tell her that all she does is right and good. Flowers spring from her tiny, victimized footprints, and all.

Is it bad form to air negative/specific/private family business in a public forum?
Are there extenuating circumstances?
What are your thoughts on "airing dirty laundry" [family business] on a forum like LJ -- is it okay if it's your friends list, is it never okay, always, etc?

However a lot of mp3s and images for our ebay auctions are hosted on the account I want to do away with, and this means I'd have to edit about 150 auction templates and make sure the new templates are the live ones when auctions relist.

So do I suck it up and do the edits, have everything in one place, and save $100 a year? Or do I forget it and leave it as it is.

I have been looking for a cheap laptop for a while and tomorrow Walmart has them for $348!

glass dome spinning top

My friend has a solid glass dome, perhaps 10cm / 4 inches in diameter, that works as a spinning top. You set it on a solid surface, with the flat side in the air, and spin it fast. It works up onto its side and then ends up with the flat side on the ground. It's mesmerising to watch!

Anyway, last time he used it a shard of glass came off the rim, and now it no longer spins properly. I want to find him a replacement, but I have no idea what such a thing would be called. He got it as a child and doesn't know its name. I tried googling and using image search, but had no luck. I'm guessing it would be sold as an ornament / paperweight rather than as a children's toy, but I really don't know.

So: does this object sound familiar to anyone, and does anyone know what it would be called? Thanks in advance!

Me And My Provocative Q's...

When you describe a person, do you include the colour of their skin in your description? I.E., "that white/black/Hispanic guy?"

If not, do you consider describing the colour of someone's skin a form of racism?

Do you think your enthnicity has anything to do with whether or not you describe skin colour?

I was talking to a co-worker and the issue of her teaching her son not to use skin colour to describe someone arose. Instead of saying something like, "she was a white girl with blonde hair," she encourages him to use other features, such as hair or eye colour, height, etc. I never thought of it as racist, but I'm intrigued by her thoughts on it.

Other than flexing your foot and stretching through the cramp, what did you do? (My exhusband knew a pressure point on my THIGH that he could "punch" and BAM! no pain)

What did you do to make this horrible pain go away. I can barely walk... and stairs are almost impossible. And I live on the 3rd floor.

I'm a supervisor at a local restaurant. Today was my day off. There was a meeting for cooks and supervisors at 4:30 pm. I slept through it, as well as the phone call to ask me where I was. If a server or cook missed the meeting, they'd be fired, but we're down to two supervisors (plus one in training at the moment.) I've called the restaurant and the manager's cell phone trying to get in touch with her to apologize, it rang for over a minute and then went to a busy tone.

Do you think I'll get fired? (oh please, oh please!! I just want a weekend off for once. And my boy is coming to see me this weekend, it'd be so nice to see him after a relaxing day, rather than after 9 hours of pure hell!)

computer problems? :(

So I had music and using Skype at the same time. Meanwhile, somebody keeps IMing me over and over, right? And AIM keeps making the IM noise, over and over. So after just a few seconds of that, my computer gets the blue screen of death, and when it restarts, I can't use my sound.

Right now whenever I try to play music, or a sound pops up, etc., it makes this weird sound like that hiss you get after throwing water on a fire (uh, if you've done that?). The same thing happens when trying to watch a video. I thought putting my headphones on would help, but then I get the weird noise right up in my ear instead.

I live in a campus dorm.  Someone keeps having sex in the room above me.

And by "keeps having sex", I mean five times a day, every day.

Now...I'm all for lots of sex (not for me, personally, but I admire people who can go all day), but it's just getting ridiculous.  I can't do my homework, and I can't sleep at night, 'cause they're doing the horizontal monster mash all night and screaming like Michael Myers just burst into their room.

What would be the most awesome way to insure that they can have sex occasionally, and yet I can still get sleep?  I've thought about banging a broom on the ceiling, but I don't think they'd hear, and I don't want to put a hole in the ceiling.

What are some natural ways to get this bizho out before it starts?

Have you had your tonsils removed?  How did that go for you?  I get sore throats all the time...and someone said it's because of my crappy tonsils.

So, why do you think the swing keeps moving? Haunted? large magnets under the ground? cheap tricks? Surely if physics professors can't figure out, people on the internet can!

What would you do if you came across a swing behaving like that, with no apparent reason for moving? would you be game enough to try to sit and swing on it?

edit: so kittyface shared another video about it here. For those of you with knowledge in the areas of physics and what not, is that right?

But still...wouldn't it freak you out a little to see it behaving like that?

If yes, or if you have already, how often per week are they in care?
How do you feel about the service you get?

1. Do you know of any websites that sell bags similar to those on, but ships to Australia?

2. Today my girlfriend and I were at the supermarket and we saw a girl wearing a Marilyn Manson hoodie and ripped fishnets, who looked really out of it. When we walked past the checkout we saw her putting her stuff on the conveyor belt... about 15 tubs of home brand petroleum jelly and a pair of scissors. WTF was she planning to do with this stuff?

It's 7:30 and I actually rested my head on the keyboard for a minute before typing this. Should I go to bed and get some glorious sleep, or should I get in some studying time for my Spanish test-thing tomorrow?

When is the longest you've gone without sleep? Or, what's the least amount of sleep you've gotten over an extended period of time?

I am buying a new electric guitar soon, would it be a bad idea to get a set bridge and not a Floyd Rose?

I ask this because it's just more comfortable for me to play on a string through neck/set bridge than a Floyd Rose and IMO the palm muting sounds better. But I am getting serious about guitar and eventually going to be doing solos in the near future. I just don't want to be stuck with no whammy bar for the next 2-3 years when it's a necessity. I play metal/rock: Megadeth, Metallica, Pantera, Deftones, In Flames.

I hope TQC community plays guitar :)

What qualities, if any, do you think you'd be able to tolerate in a friend, but not an SO?

What qualities do you have that you would want an SO to also have (e.g. similar views on politics, attitudes towards money)? What qualities would you not want them to have that you have?

Oi, TQC....I have a big test tomorrow (if I fail it, I fail the course). But I'm *so tired.* Should I take a nap now and get back up around 12 to study? Or should I just stay up and then go to bed at one or two, like normal?

Say you were going to pick someone at your company to promote to trainer.
Person A and person B have worked there for the same amount of time.
Person A works 2 days a week, for about three hours a day. Person A is trained on tasks 1,2,3, and 4.
Person B works 3 days a week for over 6 hours a day. Person B is trained on tasks 1,2,3,4,5,6, and 7.

Both employees are punctual and have good attendance records in general.

Why would it make ANY sense to pick person A over person B?

would you be annoyed if you bought concert tickets for you and your friend, say - four months in advance, and she still hadn't paid you back?

and then today she lets you know she has a "bad feeling" about going to the concert and she is worried about her back problems, so she doesn't want to go anymore?

edit: oh, and how would you yell at her, if you choose to do so?

grad school classes

Have you ever taken classes for graduate school credit without being enrolled in graduate school. 
I'm working full time and would like to go to graduate school in a few months, but in the meantime was hoping to be able to take 1 Psychoogy class for credit. 
Do you have to take the GREs before you can do that? Do you have to apply for part-time admission to the college/university where you wanna take the class even if it's just one? I am sure that it varies by schools but is there a general rule?
Also, do communiy colleges ever offer graduate school level classes or only undergrad?

have you ever been in a serious car accident?

over the summer i got smashed into when a lady going 65mph on a freeway hydroplaned and slammed on her brakes, causing her to loose control and run into me.

were you hurt? how serious?

i had some severe whiplash and my wrist hurt. so i was on pain meds and muscle relaxers, plus a wrist brace.

how long until you were better?

my accident was on 8/01, and i was sore for about 2 weeks. last night my neck started to hurt again, and today it was worse. i'm worried its really messed up and that i will have to go to the doc again

on a happier note:

what are your plans for the weekend?

i have lots of studying to do, 3 tests next week. but i'm going to go out with some friends i haven't seen in a few weeks, which should be fun!
