What is a good exercise to work out the upper torso? I have the dreaded back rolls(the ones right under the bra line) and they make me sad D:

eta: argh, I know you can't spot-reduce fat. I just wanted to know exercises to target strength training for that area.

Another question about travelling. I know, I'm a boring one-note.

Tomorrow I'm flying alone from Norwich, England to Glasgow, Scotland. It's a stupid little flight, really, but I HATE flying and the whole process makes me nervous as hell. Getting to the airport on time, checking in, finding the gate, then getting off the plane and figuring out where the hell you go once you get to an unfamiliar city... I'm panicking a little.

So.

1. Do you hate flying or love it?
2. What can I do to help myself not freak out? I do have some Valium. Heh.
2b. What could I possibly be forgetting? I have my passport as ID, my online print out so I can get my boarding pass... I just have this nagging feeling I'll forget something or screw it all up somehow! Ahh!
3. I'm going to be in Glasgow Friday night, Saturday and Sunday morning. Friday's plans are already set (seeing the Shins in concert, woo), but what should we do Saturday? Anything I shouldn't miss? It's supposed to be somewhat rainy.

memory foam

My boyfriend has a memory foam pillow and it is fantastic but I can't remember what the name of it is. I've decided I was going to ask my mom one for Christmas, so my questions are...

1) Does anybody have any favorite memory foam pillows? (looking for brands here)
2) How about mattress pads?
3) Does anyone use pillows/mattressesthat utilize "natural" materials such as latex and wool? How has that worked out for you?

To any snake owners on TQC -

To make a very long story short and simple, I'm looking for a way to keep a boa constrictor, who travels with his owners from city to city, warm in the cold weather of the Midwest. My first thought was a fleece bag, but I wanted to ask any other snake owners for their opinions. What kind of material should I use if I make them a bag? Can I buy something at a store?

(And for the record, since I know a few SPO people may analyze this much further than they need to - the constrictor is insanely happy, always full and in very loving arms. The situation is temporary.)

Does anyone have any experience renting a car in Connecticut? I'm 22 years old and need to rent a car at Bradley International Airport, but the age restrictions are confusing on each one of the company's websites. It will say that the minimum age is 25, then it says that ages 21-24 have to pay a fee...so wtf is it.

I was just hoping by chance someone under the age of 25 has rented from BDL. Thanks!

The ring thing

I've heard there's some weird unspoken quasi rule about men wearing earrings, like left ear = straight, right ear = gay, both = bi. I'm sure less than 10% of people even follow it, but do you know anyone that does?

Also, is there something similar about wedding rings? I've seen some older men wear it on their right hand instead of left. Is that an indication of anything?

I'm eating a granola bar right now so I don't go grocery shopping hungry, so I thought to ask. I'm pretty sure that when I was younger, my mom got fed up with my sniffling and ended up bringing an opened box of tissues to the checkout lane at least once.

Okay I am freaking out....And this was the only place I could turn to because I'm not finding much on the internet....

I have a small dog, a schipperke, about 12 lbs...and I am very irresponsible and she hasn't been spayed. she was in heat about 7 weeks ago and this was going on while we were moving into a new house. Our roommate has a black lab, about 60 lbs i think, and he brought him over when she was at the end of her heat period. I wasn't too entirely worried, thinking it's probably impossible for them to mate and it was almost over, but my stupidity has brought me to now...

She's gaining weight and her nipples are getting huge, and I'm starting to think she might be pregnant. My question is, is it possible to have puppies with a dog this large without them killing her? Are there any alternatives, like a C-section at the vets or even if such thing exists, a dog abortion? Does anyone know anything about how much said things would cost a person or have any kind of experience with a similar situation or any websites with information I can turn to....

Any advice would help....Thanks a lot...

Cell Phones

I'm stupid TQC. Please help me.

I want to get a new cell phone. I've had my current phone 3 years and it is starting to look ragity, and not work properly.

When I purchase a new cellphone (off ebay for instance), do I have to go to my cell phone service provider to have them activate it, or can I take my old sim card out of my current phone, and put it in the new one?

like i said, stupid, I am.

Also. Motorola Razr V3-- junk or good phone?

Also ETA: I am in Canada. A lot of these ebay listings say "can be used with singular, verizon, etc.... but again, I am in Canada and am with Canadian Rogers. Will my phone not work? Even if it is an unlocked one?

I do, sometimes, by accident. In January I lived with this girl for 2 weeks who spoke in a Gir voice ALL THE TIME, almost more than she spoke in her normal voice. It was kind of cute and funny at first, but then I started doing it to and so did everyone else who lived with us. It was a bit much.

I did it the other day without thinking and the girl I was talking to (the receptionist at my school's health center) looked at me like I had about 8 heads, it was pretty lol.

I'm from Minnesota and am going to college in South Dakota.  When I was in elementary school, the teachers taught us the capital of South Dakota was pronounced "pee-air."  When I came here, I met people from Pierre, and they told me, no, that's wrong.  It's really pronounced "pure."  Now when I watch the news I realize they do say "pure" and not "pee-air."

So, TQC, is there a city in your home state that everyone learns wrong, and they don't know the correct way to say it until they're actually corrected by someone who knows what they're talking about?

When you post a question here, what comes first, the question or the need to post? or, in other words, do you usually post because you have a question, or because you are bored so you think of a question, or a little bit of both? For me, it's almost always the question.

Overheard in the Office

So, as I sat in my cube today, I overheard a conversations.  Here are some highlights.

Emp1:  SO, what do you think about OJ?
Emp2:  I don't think anybody, anywhere, deserves to spend life in prison.
(voice from across the office):  Not even a child molester?  What about that guy from (insert city) who was found burned and chopped up who was a convicted child molester?

Emp1:  Wow.  I .....
Emp2: (cuts off employee 1) That is ridiculous.   You mean to tell me somebody took it into their own hands and killed that man?  That is disgusting.  I can't imagine anything like that.  That is not self defense, that is just plain evil revenge.

Emp1: I'd probably do the same thing if some guy did that to one of my kids
Emp2: Nobody deserves that! Who do you think you are, taking somebody's life into your own hands?



so I have two questions.  #1:  Do people deserve to spend life in prison?
       #2:  If somebody molested your child, would you take matters into your own hands?  (especially if the criminal got off)

Please help me solve this dilemma! What would you do in this situation?

 I was diagnosed with ADD 2 years ago. The disability center at my college said that I could get extra time on tests if I want. I never knew about this until now, and I took a test before. I was the last one to finish (I finished right when class was over, and the prof. kept on saying, "Come on...come on...turn it in."), but got a 100% while the class average was 65%. My professor came up to me at the end of class, and told me that I did the best out of all his classes.

Later, I told my professor about the ADD thing, and how I could get more time on tests according to the disability center. At first he said that he doesn't think I'll need it because he thinks I'm the brightest student he has right now. He said that he'd check with the center about it. He just checked with the center and it was confirmed that I could take the test at the center with more time. I asked him, "What if I have some questions on the tests? How will you answer them?" He replied, "I won't be able to. Well, that's the price you pay for having the test proctored." I feel like he's looking down on me because he thinks I'm trying to get an advantage over other people when I don't need it. Plus, the center said that usually profs would stop by for questions.

Should I take this extra time? Honestly, I think I don't need it THAT much, but it would give me more time to review my answers rather than not reviewing it at all (which was what happened last time). I could probably ace the upcoming test, but will probably be the last one to finish again. Should I tell him that I changed my mind about taking the extra time--I really feel that he thinks really lowly of me now. I was planning on getting a recommendation from him to transfer because he always told me how he thinks I'm bright and all.

I grew up in Montreal, and my Dad and I were recently discussing my tolerance for cold weather.
He proceeded to tell me a story about how when I was very young I'd spend two to three hours out in the backyard in the wintertime and when he'd look out the window to check on me I would just be standing there staring at nothing. After a little while I would look down at the snow and continue staring. Maybe then I would look up at the sky and continue staring. As I said before, this would go on for hours without actually moving.

This week, I missed handing in an assignment because I was sick. I didn't bother getting a doctor's note, because I didn't want to travel for half an hour to be told that fever/nausea/dizziness means that I should get some sleep and drink a lot of fluids, and so the assignment won't be accepted. I had a really high mark in that class, so it won't hurt me too badly, but it triggered all my school related stress.

1) TQC, how do you deal with stress?
2) Will you tell me something you should have done but didn't?

Unprofessionalism

Where I work you need to tap your badge to have the door open, this includes doors in the stairwells to different floors as well. Pretty standard. I sit right near a door that goes up to a higher floor, and the VP of sales for this division of a very large company consistantly (like, approx twice a week for the two years that I've sat here) locks himself in the staircase and knocks on the door until someone comes around (usually me) to let him in.

I think this is a little amusing because this guy is in charge of millions and millions of dollars of revenue each year, and yet stands around in the staircase for some little ole' editor to let him in so he can go to his office. Amusing yes. Annoying, occasionally (he knocks insistantly). Unprofessional? perhaps a little.

Oil Changes...

So the by-the-books old school rule is change your oil every 3k miles.

My SigOt has a 2003 Mini Cooper. The manual says to change the oil every 15,000 miles. This makes my 3k brain want to cry. He's had the car for 6 months and I just made an appointment to change his brakes as he requested, but also told them to do an oil change because I just can't stand it not being changed. It's $25 to help insure the life of your engine for crying out loud.

What do you think about this? If you own or were to own a Cooper would you stick with 3k or would you go the distance? *bonus: Did that put a song in your head?

*double bonus: do you pronounce the full word "crying" when saying "crying out loud", out loud? I seem to say "cryn out loud."

Does anyone else get into food funks? I define "food funk" as having an appetite for one one or two items or dishes at a time. Nothing else really sounds good.

A UFO maybe one time. We were looking for a 'magnetic hill' back when I was like 17. I had the only car with a manual transmission, and we figured it would work best, so there were like 6 of us all crammed inside. We were driving way out of the way to go find this thing, and there was this HUGE flash in the sky, and something fell right down into this field on our left side. It was creepy, for sure. Kind of took all the focus away from the hill (on which the car rolled probably 2 inches backwards. MAYBE).

So as you all may know, my loud slutface whore roommate finally moved out.

Unfortunately, she left some things here, mainly two bags of trash.

Fortunately for me, she also left a laptop.

I asked her if she would be back for them and she said yes but that was 2 weeks ago and I haven't heard anything from her since.

Also, what should I eat for dinner?

A cup of yogurt sounds good but so does BBQ from the BBQ restaurant. I have no food in my house so no matter what I have to go out.

My boyfriend burned his arm and the back of his hand, and now he wants to reduce the appearance of the scars as much as possible because they are just nasty. Any suggestions?

ETA: We're pro scars, just not when they resemble the cigarette burns he made when he was 13. He's worried that his parents, who he's visiting for Thanksgiving in a few weeks, will think he did it on purpose. I told him they look like my scars from when I had a few large moles removed (sort of, they're a little bigger and more abnormally shaped) and he could tell them that, but he wants to make them as unnoticeable as possible. Both of us have awesome scars from various surgeries that we'd never dream of trying to fade, which is why we didn't know what would work best.

So my boyfriend (that I fucking live with!) broke up with me. In all honesty, I have NO WHERE to go. I've already packed my stuff and I'm about to go get some beer... What else can I do?

Unrelated questions

Does it bother you when someone types out a reply to someone's comment, and then copies that reply and posts it to all similar comments on that thread?

Do you carry toothpaste and a toothbrush around with you during the day?

If you wear makeup now, at what age did you start wearing makeup?

1 Yeah it kind of bothers me. I WANT A PERSONALIZED RESPONSE
2 I don't, but I intend to start. My mother used to do this and she brushed her teeth like 10 times a day. I always thought that was insane.
3 I only started wearing makeup when I was like 17. It creeps me out to see younger girls wearing makeup because I am a judgemental person and I am uncomfortable around people whose experiences are different from my own.

ear piercing

If I want to let my ears heal over and then get them re-pierced the "right way" (i.e. not in the same spot as previous piercings as has happened before, and with a needle), how long should I let them grow over before I get them pierced again?

Usually if I leave my earrings out for just 2-3 days it's difficult to get them back in again, if that gives you any indication.

1. What kind of car do you have/what year/what color?
dark blue 2006 hyundai sonata (looks just like this)

4. What's the dumbest looking car you've ever seen?
a saw an old VW Beetle with no paint on it, but it had one of those tricked out spoilers that people tend to put on their old honda civics. the spoiler was YELLOW, the car had no paint. I wish I could have taken a picture.

Inspired by stupid friend IRL

Have you ever gone into or stayed in a romantic relationship to "fix"/"take care of" some one who was screwed the fuck up (the kind of screwed up that hurts other people)? If not, have you known some one who did? How did that work out?

And because that is just far too SRS BUSINESS, what should I draw tonight to cure my boredom?

If you went over to a male friend's house, and saw that he had a bottle of lotion by his computer, would you assume that he is just concerned with dry skin or something else?

Edit: the reason I ask is I commented (to my guy friend) that we use the same lotion and he got uncomfortable.

Edit 2: Dammit, guys, it's good lotion! I didn't think he'd get his panties in a twist about it. lol

Is there any store in the UK where I could get a not terribly expensive formal dress? (I need something suitable for a black tie event)

Or should I just buy something in the US when I go home for Christmas?

ETA:

A few of my friends are going to Morocco right before I go home for Christmas.

Should I go to Morocco in December?

Or should I save money because I want to go to two or three other May Balls in the spring? (I'm already spending like $150 to go to my college's)

1) What are some silly things you believed when you were little?
I thought Americans had more months but less days to each month. I also thought Buenos Aires was the name of an airline company.

2) Why do you think 3 siblings (two sisters and a brother) would stay living together in their parents' house even after their parents have died? They've got to be a least 35 but I'm thinking they're probably older. One of them left home about ten years ago, got married and a had a baby. But she was living home again by the time the baby was 1.

3) It's now been more than 150 days without a government. Do you think we'll ever get one again?

4) Why is my knee hurting?

The one night I want to go to TQC Chat, AIM is being an asshole. Why? I haven't touched myself at night in quite some time, so I know it's not that.

I'm bored and there are tons of free movies On Demand. Which one should I watch?

Are you bored right now?

I have a paper to do in my government class, to make up for some work I've missed lately. The assignment is a paper, 5 pages on "The Constitution" (The Preamble, the Articles)
That's all he gave me to work with, he added, "make it interesting".

What aspect of the Constitution should I write about? Note, this is a government class, not a history class.

Have you ever given/recieved roadhead?
Ever had sex while driving/the other person was driving?

I've never done either. I just always wonder about it whenever I see somebody continuously driving like a fucktard (like drifting into the other lane several times)

is robot sex cheating?

Say you're at work, when a UFO comes down from space, drills a hole through the ceiling and sucks you in to the ship through a big plastic tube. Once on the UFO, a robot with the voice of John Candy tells you you can't leave due to the "molecular instability zone" around the ship, and offers you a glass of fresh blo-aak, which you accept. Later, you wind up having incredibly hot sex with the robot (despite the fact that you're in a relationship with someone on Earth).

Is this cheating?

Would you feel guilty?

What is blo-aak?

I found a website that has a copy of Friday the 13th part 3 on DVD in 3D. What do I need to put on a screening of it, like a big screening? What kind of projector/screen do I look for and how much money do I need to raise to rent or buy it?

Im not really sure if I could even take a DVD and put it in a computer and attach that to a projector, AND have the 3D work so thats why Im asking.

two conpletely unrelated questions...

1. if you were trying to figure out someones personality, what kind of deep questions would you ask?

2. straight/bisexual guys and gals of the lesbian/bisexual persuasion (i think i covered everything there...):
what is your policy on oral sex performed on an unshaved female? good? bad? absolutely intolerable?

music ripping question

why is it that sometimes when you rip music, itll play fine for the length it is, then when you add it to itunes, it stretches out to like, 30+ minutes?

example (sunny day real estate's "faces in disguise" cover by paramore, 6 minutes, 30 seconds, and when i import/drag it into itunes, its 48 minutes, 48 seconds long)

and how do i prevent it/change it so i can keep the song and keep it at 6 minutes and 30 seconds?

Show Off Time!

Ok, so my best friend lives with us (long story) and she's been going through a lot and on top of it all, today she was in the ER all day because of a kidney infection! :[ So, she's recouping in a more peaceful environment (aka one where animals that love her won't pounce on her entrails accidentally while trying to show her love) and I made her a sign that I put on her bedroom door to greet her upon her return. And I'm pretty damned proud of how it turned out! So I want to show it off!

So, now that I've gotten to brag, do you want to show me something you've made that you're stoked about? Or, if you don't have pictures of said awesomeness, want to tell me about your badass skills at _____? :D

so i had that second glass of wine.

i am feeling alternately buzzed and extremely sleepy.

what should i do now?
(keep in mind that i'm home, and the only one in my family who's awake. seeing as i had that second glass of wine, i cannot drive anywhere. plus i just took a bath so my hair is wet and it's cold out so i wouldn't want to go outside anyway.)

srs and non-srs answers welcome.

Medical insurance

So, I don't have medical insurance. I'd like to have medical insurance.

My roommate and I were just talking about it, and she insists that the only way one can get medical insurance is through their employer. According to her, if you are not eligible for government-assisted medical care (meaning disabled, pregnant, or over 65) the only way to get medical insurance is through your employer.
As such, she insists that a relatively healthy, college-aged, male (such as myself) who's employer does not offer medical insurance is essentially shit out of luck.
I think this is a ridiculous concept and more-or-less refuse to accept it.

A search through Google and various state HMOs turned up... absolutely nothing.

Does anyone know anything about this?

PS: I live in the US, in Rhode Island, if that's relevant.
