1 Do you like looking at incredibly disturbing pictures? (Like mangled humans, VERY strange sexual stuff, etc.) Why/ why not?

2 If you wanted someone on teh internets to stop talking to you and they insisted on doing so, but not for any other reason than to be an annoying prick, is there anything you'd do other than ignore them?

3 Do you fight it when you're tired or do you just head for bed?

unoriginal question

Is it possible to stay friends with an ex after a long term relationship if there is no bitterness or anger present after the breakup?
Both people want to maintain the close friendship they had before the breakup.
There are no children invoved, or anything complicated like that.

Going down the highway today, we saw a man walking on the side of the road. He was pulling a large wooden cross across the back of his shoulder. The base of the cross had a wheel to make it easier for him to walk with it, and at the bottom, he had a backpack tied onto it. He wasn't begging or passing out religious pamphlets. He was just walking down the highway.

Have you seen anything like this before?
If not, what is the strangest thing you've ever seen on the highway?

You're in a graphic design class. So far, you're sure you have an A. Assignments have been right up your alley, you participate well in class, you came up with the class logo... You're golden.

Then he assigns a project that is NOT your thing. Namely, to create a series of illustrations that pertain to the graphic design company your class is pretending to be (hence class logo etc). Other than that, he doesn't give you much explanation. In fact, his explanation was crappy and vague and when you asked him to elaborate, all you get is "well, illustrate something. anything. Just three to five of them. A series. Of illustrations. That could be used for the company. I won't even tell you what for specifically. Just be creative."

You have no good ideas even after thinking all week long, and can't even actually create the ideas you DID think of because you're NOT THAT GOOD with the program yet.

Sketches and printouts are due tomorrow. Also, apparently an essay about a final project he didn't really explain last class is due tomorrow, too: "Make sure to include your chosen area of art focus and your personal project goals and design direction." wtf does that mean?

The questions:
How much would YOU finish and bring to class if it was almost 1 am and you've already been reduced to tears by it?
How much would you finish and bring if you had three hours tomorrow before class to work on it?
Would it be reasonable to ask him to come early so I can discuss why I was stuck, and why I don't have an essay written (because he didn't effing explain the thing)?

There was this commercial i saw a while ago that had a woman driving a van with ehr two kids in the backseat and they were all playing some kind of game. One of the kids would pick up an object and say "This is a                !" Everyone else: "A what?" Kid: "A                !" Everyone else: "Oh a                !", and they did this with a few different things during the commercial.

Have you ever heard of a game like this? What is it?


Harold and Maude Squad

Let's say they were going to remake Harold and Maude. Who would make the best Harold?

Shia Lebeouf
Haley Joel Osment
Freddie Prinze Jr.
Zac Efron
Chace Crawford
Josh Hartnett
Adam Brody
Toby Maguire
Mark Ruffalo
Leo Dicaprio
Topher Grace
Elijah Wood
Wes Bentley
Dane Cook
Jason Schwartzman

Which 60+ actress would make the best Maude?

Estelle Getty
Joan Rivers
Suzanne Sommers
Helen Mirren
Joan Collins
Rue McClanahan
Judi Dench
Bea Arthur
Farrah Fawcett
Betty White
Faye Dunaway
Meryl Streep
Florence Henderson
Cicely Tyson

What kind of ending should the remake have?

Sad, tragic ending
Romantic, feel-good ending
Hilarious ending
Disappointing, could-have-been-better ending (like most movies)
An ending that leaves you in need of a cold shower (red-hot sexy)

How would you feel if they remade Harold and Maude?

Indifferent. Hollywood's digging up every classic movie and tv show and turning them into unwatchable crap. This movie will not escape that fate
What's Harold and Maude?
It's a good thing. The original was a bit dated
It's a good thing. There's not enough roles for older women
I thought it was Harold and Kumar. Are they still going to White Castle?
Sad. I love that movie and it just won't be the same

You find out that Tim Burton would direct. How do you feel about it now?

Pretty good. I like his movies
Dunno. Better? At least we know Johnny Depp will be in it
He's fuck it up. It'll be a gothic showpiece and be nothing like the original
It's brilliant. A movie with this much macabre overtones cries out for Burton's dark touch

my xbox and computer have stopped talking....

Like that in a tv sitcome, I feel like my computer and xbox are always at a battle as if they are trying always out piss me off.

I have my xbox networked to my computer with a d-link router and using ccx_gui softwear so that they will talk to eachother, now however they do not talk, and I have no idea why. Normally a restarting in the d-link router, my pc and the xbox will solve this, however now whenever I try to access my computer with my xbox I get the damnable error message "server not found" which pisses me off to no end because I have a lot of stuff on my pc that I like to watch!

Unfortunatly my xbox is chipped and so has a VERY hard time in reading real DVD's wheras copies are no problem at all. I hate to think that I need to burn every DVD that I own or anything I download before I can watch it through my xbox - because I don't have a DVD player seeing how my xbox was enough.

Should I just throw in the towel and accept that 4 years is enough to ask of this little console and get a new one, or am I missing something?

I am open to all forms of help, because damn it please help! I cannot get anything out of google!

1. A friend of mine has been in a long distance relationship for about three years now. Yesterday, her boyfriend flipped out, shouted at her, and proceeded to block her from every online form of communication they have. Wtf happened? (non-srs answers welcome) ETA: They were playing an online game at the time. He wanted to go one way, she wanted to go the other.

2. (Unrelated to the first) You find out that a male acquaintance of yours has been cheating on his girlfriend. Is your first reaction "That bastard", "that bitch", or something else?
3. Does your answer change if it was a girl instead?

ack! nooo!

in my art class yesterday, i spent a lot of time drawing a whitetail doe. it was a labor of love, and although it was kind of frustrating, it turned out beautifully, and a lot of people told me that i did a really nice job with it. when class was dismissed, i put it away, walked to my car and drove home. when i went to take it out again to show someone, IT WAS GONE. it had completely vanished. there is no way it could have fallen out, i KNOW i put it in there, and no one could have stolen it or anything. WTF. it is GONE. :(


what's the last thing to REALLY REALLY bum you out?

have you ever spend a lot of effort doing something that wasn't worth it in the end?

do you know anyone who pronounces the word frustrate as fuh-strate? any other wacky pronunciations that bother you?

My husband and I want to have a holiday party this year. Except that he wants it to be a dress-up event rather than anything else. It will be at our house. He says for the dress code, he wants the guys to wear shirts and ties. For the girls - whatever level of dressiness matches that.

abstinence until marriage

Looking at this government-run abstinence-until-marriage website, I was inspired to ask these questions:

1. If you had sex before marriage, did it cause you psychological or emotional harm?

2. Do you think people who have sex before marriage have less respect for themselves than people who wait until marriage?

3. Do you think people who wait until marriage to have sex have better sex lives than people who don't?

4. Do you think having premarital sex as a teenager can "get in the way of your growth as a teen?"

5. Would you agree that abstinence until marriage is the "expected standard" in our culture?

But I have two projects that are due today in class and we're starting another one.

Should I e-mail the finals to my teachers and go back to bed?

 I am thinking of getting a YMCA membership.  I usually hike and walk a lot, but now that it turns dark so early, I can't do that after work anymore.  I also get bored easily with "work-out" routines (more accurately I HATE working out.)  But I like to move, I like music, and I want to stay (reasonably) in shape.  So I thought the Y would be a good choice, lots of different types of classes, etc.  Then a friend of mine told me about Curves, a woman-only gym-type place.  My question(s):

Do any of you belong to a Curves gym? What do you think of it and would you recommend it?  How about as compared to a Y?

And on a tangential question, does anyone out there love it when it gets dark early, like I do??  Irregardless of the not being able to hike thing, I love to come home to my warm, snug house, see the lights shining out into the night as I drive just feels safe and cozy to me.  Anyone else weird like that? 
hopelessly crappy day

I have a hypothetical question for you...

...which is possibly based off something that conceivably happened.


7:20 PM 11/7/07 · This was presented to me by a friend who thought this was sexual harrassment. I didn't, still don't, think it was. Thought I'd pop it out to a more public forum and see what others thoughts were.

A woman is accused of having poor hygiene because of a very evident bad smell. There is some debate as to wheher or not the smell actually is coming from her in the first place but the specific directed at her is whether or not she keeps herself clean *dramatic pause* down there.

Is this sexual harrassment?

What was it like?

Somebody fainted on me today in the cafeteria and it was more frightening than I ever would have thought it could be. It was upsetting. But I guess it would have been worse for the person doing the fainting.

ETA: I also passed out in the doctor's office. It was from a bad reaction to a shot. But I blacked out first so I had plenty of warning. I was pissed off because I didn't want the shot. But it was in a doctor's office so I wasn't really embarrassed or anything. And I didn't fall on anyone, my knees just started buckling and the nurses helped me.

So my semester ends in less than a month. I am currently a junior.

I've missed about 4 classes in each class. I talked with my advisor today and she said that if I need to, I can take a leave of absence. She said, "Well, you KNOW you're not at the top of the class or anything and you missed classes last year!"

I really don't want to and I'm committed to going to the rest of my classes.

Is missing 4 classes really means to withdraw from classes!? (I thought it was absurd!)

What can I do to "prove" myself and not get eaten up by my wondrous advisor?

If for some reason (invasive surgery, severe illness, whatever) you and your "sexytime" parts were out of commission for an extended period of time (say a month or three)...

Would you invite over and encourage someone (your best friend, someone random from the bar, or whoever) to hook up with your significant other, no strings attached, as a sympathy lay??

 Ok, so here's the situation tqc.

I've been seeing this guy for a little over 4 months and things have been alright.  I just can't see it going anywhere...we're too similar, fight often, he gets in these 'moods' where he won't talk to me for days, and he's too preoccupied with other things going on in his life to be able to give me what i need right now, so I've been meaning to break things off for about 2 weeks.  THEN he comes around and tells me he thinks he has Hepatitis-B.  Obvi, I freak and go get myself tested (I am negative) but he came back to me yesterday and told me that he had himself retested and is DEFINITELY positive.  This is NOT the reason what I want to break things off (I'm vaccinated, it wouldn't be a big deal to me) but now I feel like he'll think I'm playing the "oh you have Hep-B, cya" card on him.

-How would you handle this?
-Is there any way for me to do this without him thinking it's about the Hepatitis?
-Should I wait until he sees a doctor and hope that it's just the kind that will go away?
-How much does this suck?

    This time of year makes me remember mine. I was 14 bordering 15 and we were all out trick-or-treating. It was exactly 1 day before my 15th birthday, and I had to get kissed or I was going to feel like a mega-loser. My crush was trick-or-treating too, and we pulled each other into the bushes. I was dressed like a hula girl. I think he was dressed like a lumberjack? Hard to remember. Not so much romantic. But it was kind of unusual.

    Have you read Trojan Women by Euripides and The Aeneid by Virgil?
    I'm not looking for someone to do my homework, but I am looking for someone to bounce ideas for a paper off of, so if you're familiar with those, could you be that person? ^_^

    And for those of you who haven't read that stuff, think of the paper/essay that you're most proud of.
    What grade did you get on it?
    What was the topic?
    Why are you so proud?

    EDIT: Oh! Also, will you post a picture of yourself with the following expression(s) on your face?

    1- I'm going to Canada tomorrow, what should I do there? Let's pretend like I'm a stupid tourist who thinks you can walk across Canada in an hour. WHAT AN ADVENTURE!
    2- How do you feel about people who broadcast their mental problems around LJ and join comms for their problems, and wear things like MPD or bipolar-ness like a badge?
    3- Kids in movies scream so fucking much at the wrong points. If aliens came out of no where, or the mass-murderer of your town came-a-knockin', and your kid started to howl like a banshee, would you save the little bitch, or kill her to keep the silence goin?

    On a scale of 1-100, how competitive are you?

    Say you're playing a game and fancy yourself pretty good to great at it, and you have a sizable lead.  Then it starts to slip away quickly - what is your general reaction?  Do you keep having fun and enjoying the game?  Do you curse the rotten luck, in your head or out loud?  Do you pull an "Arthur Spooner" and fling the gameboard and all its attendant pieces across the room?

    Also, at what games do you PWN, almost without fail?

    i was supposed to meet up with my boyfriend today but he canceled the last minute because his mother had asked him to come home. i had a feeling that it would lead to no good, and boy, was i right. he called me and said that his father (who has been having lung problems for the last month or so and had a surgery scheduled today) was diagnosed with lung cancer and from what i understood the tumor cannot be removed so he is basically dying. before leaving for the surgery he left the documents and keys of both cars to my boyfriend and also took out all the money from his bank account and took it home... just in case. so this is really bad. unfortunately i am awful with dealing such situations, so my question is, what can i do to help? i already told my boyfriend that i'm there for him and to let me know if there is anything i could do for him, but what else can i do? i really want to help, i'm just scared that i might screw everything up :(

    Cheeseburger pie.

    1. Have you heard of it?

    2. Have you eaten it? How'd you like it?

    3. Would you eat it?

    One of my housemates made it for dinner last night and we won't stop giving him a hard time for it. I mean, it didn't taste that bad, but it was like... meatloaf pie with cheese on top. It was just kind of... tacky. And gross. And I wish he'd just made cheeseburgers.

    I work for a temp agency. I'm currently placed at a financing firm that has a lot of unprofessional issues and problems within its office. In recent days, I've become a target for the unprofessional behavior and find that I'm having issues with doing my job because of the attitude my coworkers have been showing towards me. So, I e-mailed the temp agency I'm working for and asked if they could place me in another position because I feel uncomfortable there.

    The temp agency turned around and forwarded the e-mail I sent them right back to the company I am working at. Granted, it didn't get me in a lot of trouble or cause me to lose my position, but I am very upset and feel betrayed and like this agency honestly doesn't give a shit about their employees.

    Is what they did illegal, and if so, what can I do to take action against this? Anyone else have this happen to them? What did you do?

    How would you politely tell someone that you never want to talk to them again, and just want to be left alone?
    In a way that they would actually get it?

    EDIT : How are you with strangers and personal space?
         i.e.  If someone you don't know stands really close, do you step backwards or are you OK with it?

    I want to bake some home made peanut butter cookies. I have all the ingredients, but my flour & baking powder is slighty expired (well it says 'best by' blah blah). is it still good to use? I'm thinking they're both like a year old.

    How do I get rid of a cold sore? I just started getting it this morning & it's pretty much already full blown. I've been googling & found suggestions like nail polish remover (not sure how I feel about that...), rubbing alcohol (OUCH!), hydrogen peroxide (tried it, didn't do anything, not even any bubbles or anything), and something called Lysine (what the heck is this & if it works, where do I get it?) ............ thanks.

    To quote Billie Joe Armstrong, we are the new Generation Zero right now and we are having to deal with the too-fast-to-handle advances in technology, the war that people will be trying to figure out for centuries into the future and the world just general changing, more or less for better or for worse. So what I want to know is, would you rather have been born in the past, present or future? I for one would like to be born earlier, before Zero and when music wasn't such a power struggle of an industry. Give me your thoughts on this people. :)

    I have stretch marks on my boobs. i HATE it..
    where do you have stretch marks?

    Do you have a good rack?
    I used to, they were small and pert and everyone who had the pleasure of viewing them was most complimentry.
    Now for some reason they've gone from a 30C to a 30DD and let me tell you, it's abnormal looking! and I wasn't even a completely full C before. Also.. the left is slightly larger.

    Can anyone think of any groovy room 'themes' for a 19 year old female?

    Every few christmas's I get my room made over as a pressie from the fam (my step dad is a painter, my nan a dressmaker, my aunt an interior designer and my grandfather a carpenter) so they all kinda add something to my room to make it really spesh and we all have a ball setting it up. Problem is, this year I have NO idea what theme I want to follow. Any ideas? inspiration pics? My current bedroom has hot pink walls with silver and black accesories and a crystal chandelier but i'm kinda over that.

    What would your ideal bedroom be decked out in?

    People calling my on my cell (or NOT calling me) has been stressing me out the past couple days. My phone just died, and I'm tempted to just leave it off for a few days so that I can calm down about people calling me. But I'm worried someone might really want to/need to get in touch with me.

    Dear TQC,

    Should I let my phone stay off anyway, and turn it back on in a few days when (hopefully) I'm not so focused on getting called, or should I charge it up just in case of an emergency and someone needs to contact me?

    Have you ever had "camper" brand shoes. If so, did you like them? I just bought a pair of boots and am trying to decide if i should keep them. I'm not thrilled over them so i am trying to decide based on quality of craftsmanship, etc.

    Have you ever donated blood? (If yes, how many times?)

    Have you tried to give blood and been rejected, and if so, why?

    Have you ever received a blood transfusion?

    If you've given blood, did you weigh less than 110 pounds at the time? Did you die, and/or pass out?

    Yes, my first time was today.

    Last year, because I was iron-deficient anemic.

    Yes, because some dumb technician once took twice the amount of blood that she was supposed to from me for some tests, and then they were all "Lol, we took too much, transfusion time!"

    I weigh about 90, and I am still living. I also didn't pass out!

    I have bad posture.I want to fix it before I end up like my (late) great grandmother with a hunch back and only able to see the ground unless she lifted her head. Loved the woman dearly, even share a birthday, but I don't want a hunch back.

    Any suggestions? Exercises?

    I've googled but every time I google for help it sends me to sites that all say *for a small fee we can show you the exercises you need to prevent back pain, scoliosis... etc etc...

    Any one else tend to type ect instead of etc? *is prolly alone on this one*

    Does wearing a knee brace of some kind help? Knee exercises or stretching? Not pushing yourself too hard?

    Harmonix' Phase

    Has anyone else played Harmonix' Phase for the iPod yet? It's basically Frequency/Amplitude/etc for the iPod, but you get to use all your own music for it. Harmonix are the people who brought out Guitar Hero, Karaoke Revolution, and Rock Band as well.

    A: I've been completely ignoring the pile of new 360 games I just bought in favour of this silly little $5 iPod game. If mp3 players had killer apps, this one might be one.

    So about that research paper due tomorrow...

    So, I have this candy machine, that has candy in it, but I have to pay to get the candy. I've spent like $10 on Sprees and I'm not spending any more!

    How can I open it up to get the candy and the money inside?

    ***IDEALLY, I'd like to have the candy and the machine intact.
