Does it bug you when they do that?
Do you get into those funks?
Are you going to die alone?
eta: My goodness people, and I thought I was bad for not knowing how to play! It's regional?
ETA2: LOL I had no idea it was so regional!
n the 1920s, the game became Forte Fives when it moved South into the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts and New Hampshire with French Canadian immigrants. Today, Forty-fives continues to be very popular in the Merrimack Valley.

Background: I was discussing the dressed-up vs dressed-down subject on my LJ (which led to a related TQC post by me yesterday) and in part argued that I liked wearing t-shirts with stuff on them allow me to advertise my interests. One of my friends raised the above question.
Would you like to take the one under the cut?
If yes, tell me your results and your pics plz if you want!

How do I make it go away by thursday afternoon? I'm playing on student recital, and none of my dress shirts will hide it. (It's on the back of my neck in between the back of my neck and my shoulder...coverable by a t-shirt, just not a dressy shirt).
And now for the light-hearted: What does your S.O. do that totally turns you on? biting/rough kissing on/around my neck (hence the hickey)
What are good things to send in a care package to a friend deployed to Iraq?
What if it's a birthday care package?
This friend is fond of occasional chewing tobacco. Nasty as it is... can I send some or is it a no-no? I read that alcohol and porn are not ok, but there was no mention of tobacco products.
Thanks in advance, guys!
Do you know of any good internet-based things for flow charts? I know there are some teachers in here! I see there's a flowchart.com but it says something about signing up for a beta invite.
I thought I saw one in word/works, but I haven't been able to find it.
When was the last time you thought your head might explode from information overload?
Should I go to bed, wake up at 8am and go to my first three classes then study again during my one hour break before the test?
Or just stay up and cram until the wee hours of morning?
do you know what it is?
have you ever had one?
the other night, i was at my friend's house, and i said, "ugh, i have a hangnail. do you guys have any fingernail clippers around?" one of my friends said, "what the fuck is that? i've never heard of it before," and the other said, "what IS a hangnail, exactly?" the last person in the room and i looked at each other all, "wtf" because who the fuck's never heard of a hangnail? i mean, really.
And is this the scariest picture you've ever seen?
Is this ever a genuine wish for someone's eternal happiness?
Yes, I know it depends on the tone, but to me, it comes off as snarky and dismissive no matter what.
What do you think?
Ever fallen asleep on them during sex when sober?
What did you say in the morning?
How old are you, exactly?
The issues being:
Iraq war/foreign policy
"morality" issues (ie gay marriage, etc.)
Would one of these issues trump another?
Also, do you think that we're going to end up attacking Iran?
Ridiculously stupid idea, or are they going to go batshit crazy and start bombing if we don't take them out first?
What do you think?
Who do you think you'd get along with IRL?
What’s up with this?
Not just have there not been more Predator films...there hasn't been some possibly prime casting to see who will prevail against the creature and get bitch slapped and have their spines ripped out by one of them. I really can't name who I'd've liked to see in future films of this series, who would've been those intriguing side character that get killed and mounted on the trophy wall, but as to be the final prime hunt for the creature that ultimately winds up beating him I can think of a few.
If there had been more Predator films who would you have cast to be the creatures prey? Please specify, as the Preds tend to have a prime target selected and kill all those along the way to it, those who die and the one that wins out.

Do you know what "traffic flirting" is?
Do you drive in a lot of traffic on a day to day basis? If so, what do *you* do to pass the time?
Mine, as an example: I was at a spa getting a massage and a facial. The spa woman put green goop on my face, wrapped it in cotton strips, covered my eyes, and wrapped my feet in warm towels. Then she left. And I had to pee really really badly. After 10 minutes or so I was like "Fuck it, I have to go!" The women came back just in time to catch me attempting to stand up, blind and cotton-covered, my robe totally fallen open. ::sigh:: At least I made it in time. (This has also happened at the acupuncturist. Why don't they leave you with a little bell or something???)
The only one I know of is that the PS2 will be $99.
2. What kinds of fun inexpensive (like maybe spend $10 max on each of them) things can I get for my bestfriends who all live in different states from me for christmas/Hanukkah?
2. If you could tell your 15 year old self some bits of advice, what would you say?
I'm not taking any of that "hindsight is 20/20" or "I have no regrets" bullshit. Even if you don't have anything to say that would change your life, what is an important aspect of how real life works that you weren't aware of when you were 15, like "christians are crazy" or something.
#1) What music communities are active and allow people to request certain types of music without uploading any themselves? Specifically I’m looking for Canadian themed songs (songs about Canada, not necessarily Canadian artists)
#2) I remember coming across a community that would rate people’s LJs. Hilarity ensued. Any idea what community this may have been?
2. What do they do on Opposite Day in Bizarro World? Do they act all ordinary, or do they bizarrely reject the sanctity of Opposite Day and continue to be bizarro?
3. Are you ready yet?!
What do you do when you make a sarcastic comment, but someone takes you seriously?
Any good stories of times where you've managed to say something truly ridiculous but someone thought you were serious?
Or inversely, something you mistook for serious when someone was just being sarcastic?
What is your favourite kind of dumpling/starch stuffed with crap (ie pierogi, wonton, kreplach, momos, raviolis, gyoza, etc)?
2. What about your grandparents?
1. I called them Mummy and Daddy when I was little, and Mum and Daddy now (sometimes "Mummy" still slips out though).
2. My grandparents (only ever knew one set) are Mami and Papi, which is one French Canadian way of calling them.
Edited to avoid wank.
2. What video game(s) have you beat recently? Was it good?
1. Playing Guitar Hero III, its awesome.
2. Just beat Legend of Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass. It was great. If you like Zelda games then I highly recommend it.
do you say 'asap' as "ay-sap" or "a-s-a-p"?

Are you traveling for Thanksgiving this year?
Is there a long car ride involved?
So I'm starting my grad school applications now. My top choice is an MA in Culture and Colonialism (it's a cross-faculty course), which is usefully offered at the same place as I'm doing my undergrad.
If I wanted to talk to the director of the program (he's one of my lecturers), what would be the best way of approaching him? Should I just go in and say I have some questions, or would there be a better way of approaching him?
I know this can differ from place to place (I'm in Ireland) and professor to professor, but if anyone had any general tips, that'd be great.
If no, why not?
If yes, do you think you are actually going to someday?
My mom's whole side of the family (except for one cousin) is on the other side of the world. I'd love to meet them and spend a few months there but I doubt I'll ever really do it.
I know youre gonna say to get a humidifyer but money is tight...
2. How did you/ will you decide where to go to school?
3. Did you go full-time, or work and go part-time? How did you decide how to do that?
4. I'm torn between getting a masters in government or going to law school. I have no idea what I want to do as a career. How do I decide?!
(I'm a junior in college)
And now for something completely different...
5. Are you sick? What's wrong with you? (I have the flu. Eww)
6. Is there anywhere in London where you can find canned chicken noodle soup? That's all I want right now, and the only thing I can find at the store is ox tail soup.
Where should we go that'll be exciting and different for us?
How do you see it? A piece of fashion or a political statement?
Does it matter to you the colour? (Black on white, Red on White, Green, white on red)
*edit to add my opinion*
When I see a non-arab wearing one, I think that they are either a moron (for not knowing what it means) or support terrorism- not applicable to White on Red in which case it is a fashion statement.
Generally as a political statement unless worn in the desert, then an accessory like a sunvisor or sun glass.
If the person doesn't know what it means, then it is a statement that they are an idiot. Otherwise it means that they support terrorism, the murder of Jewish men, women and children and the destruction of Israel.
Colour certainly matters, if Green, or Red on white then Homeland Security/CSIS should be called as association with said groups are illegal in both Canada and the US as well as most of Europe. White on Red means that one is Hashemite.
This morning I wake up and the lymph nodes in my throat are huge and ouchy.
I'm drinking hot tea and eating a couple of tangerines for the vitamin C. Tonight - gargling with warm salt water every hour.
Any suggestions/things I can do in the next 16 hours to make myself all better so I can enjoy
Am I being silly in not being excited to share the recipe before I know it turns out well? If so, how silly on a scale of 1-10?
When was the last time you were unnecessarily silly or hesitant about something?

Which reality show would you rather be on? Why?
You have to choose.

2. What is the name of the closest mall/shopping area to where you live?
3. Are there any nicknames for the countys or cities around you? If so, please explain. For example, I work in Hillsboro and the locals have nicknamed it Hillsburrito because of the amount of Hispanic people living here.
TQC, what the fuck did i do wrong?
would you consider yourself a happy person?
what are you thinking about right now?
Are you aware of a little show called The Partridge Family?
I'm watching the Dr Phil episode where Danny was the guest, and my almost 22 year old flatmate hadn't heard of either. How does that happen??
What's the last thing someone did or said that made you feel old?
The Partridge Family or The Brady Bunch? Which family would you rather be stuck with?
2)I was told that blu-ray or HD porn is supposedly not good because of the high definition. Do you think/know there's any truth to that?
3)Do you like to put salt on any of your fruit? My grandma liked to put salt on sliced apples and melon and I always thought that was weird.
I went to see Shutter at the Ironworks in Inverness. There's a video of their performance here and I seriously recommend it if you like instrumental post-rock.
Supporting them was Gasgiant. They walked on stage in V (from V for Vendetta, obviously) masks and there were two guitarists, a drummer and a bassist. Pretty standard for instrumental rock groups but a couple of minutes into their first song, I realised their second guitarist wasn't doing much, she hadn't even played a single note. Then she started playing her guitar with a cello bow. As a fan of Apocalyptica, this made me wet my pants in glee. Not literally of course, that'd be gross, but it was so incredibly awesome I could barely contain myself. If you want to check them out yourself, there's a couple of free MP3s on their homepage.
You are a 20 year old female from upstate New York. You have graduated with an AS in Psychology from a community college, however you don't want to continue on with that major. You still don't know what you want to do with your life. You have, however, been working in an office setting for 2 years and have gained a lot of experience for only being 20 years old.
Your boyfriend of three years lives across the country in California. He isn't a very ambitious person; he quits his jobs after only working at the places for a few months or less. He has no long term goals and doesn't see any problem with this.
However, no matter all of his downfalls, you are still completely in love with him, and have plans to move.. across the country to be with him and start a new life...
Would you move? Why or why not?
What should I download?
1. Male or female?
2. How old are you?
3. How tall are you?
4. If you're female, what bra size do you wear?
5. How much do you weigh? (If you're comfortable saying, of course)
6. If you were to not care about your body image and eat whatever you wanted whenever you wanted to, how much do you think you would weigh then?
Would you mind posting a picture with your stats?
what can I do to stop them from getting in my room until I can fix the door?
Any charities you think are especially worth giving money to in someone's name? Anything suggestions specifically related to elderly people, reproductive rights, and the arts are especially welcome.
2. I want to audit a class in Rome that I have already taken here (in fact, it's the one I'm TA-ing). It's with a different professor who I am very interested in getting to know. The class consists of 2 hour lecture periods and 3 hour on-site lectures. Due to a schedule conflict, I would only be able to audit his lectures, and if he were willing accompany his class on their 3 day trip to several outside cities. Is it worth it if I have to miss his on-site lectures? I don't want to e-mail him and come off like an idiot.
2. What's your least favorite book ever? Why?
2. What was the last weird dream you had?

Qdoba ( I will be myself, so that may be pathetic)
the dining hall on campus, where I can eat as much salad and pizza I want
And what should I get if I go to these places? I'd like to AVOID wheat, but I am on such an emotional eating binge, I am willing to eat it.
I went to the dining hall. Twas yummy.
Do you ever emotionally eat? What 'does it' for you? Usually mashed potatoes, but that really isn't an option for me.
2. What do you do for a living? I know this has been asked before a bagillion times, so I'm sorry. But to add to the question - do you LIKE it? Do you have a lot of down time at work?
3. If you do have a lot of down time at work, what do you do to keep yourself entertained when you don't have any work to do?
4. What are some of your favorite love songs? Love poems?
5. Do you like Marilyn Manson? Why or why not?
For people who know about skin stuff, why do I keep breaking out when my skin is dry and flaking?
For people who know about driving -- if you are on a highway with three lanes going th same direction, is the middle lane the "slow lane" ?
2. If it was at a restaurant, did you say anything/get any retribution?
(edited)3. If it was a restaurant, did/do you still eat there afterwards?
I'd (most likely) be going alone, seeing as my friend hasn't gotten back to me yet, and I have laundry to do (which, if I have to, I can do tomorrow).
Cons-I don't like going places alone.
Do you wanna come with me? I have an extra ticket...
Edit Pretty sure I'm going.
Do you like cottage cheese?
How about escargot?

Tl;dr responses of your own very welcome. (: Also, if you can't think of one from your childhood and you have evil or funny little children of your own, feel free to share a story about them, lol.

I work all day the day before, and the day after thanksgiving. I haven't talked to my sister in a month due to a fight we are having, because she was cheating on her boyfriend and I found out. She does not live with us. My grandmother is having thanksgiving with her daughter (my mother) a women that abandoned us two years ago. My dad is taking my sister to his parents house for 3 days for thanksgiving, I cannot go due to work. I asked my friend if I could spend it with her and our other best friend. Her family said it was alright with them but they would have to check with the people they they have it with. They people they have it with said no. Now, the second best friend has other people she can have thanksgiving with that keep offering for her to come over. I on the other hand have had no such offers and now I am spending thanksgiving all by myself. My friend says that I shouldn't be upset and that I just need to get over it and move on. I don't agree.
Who is right in this situation?
How pathetic is it for a 16 year old to have to be alone on thanksgiving?
Which one and why?
I am terrified of cows! One chased me when I was younger. They have crazy eyes!!
I know clothes are really hard to guesstimate but I thought it couldn't hurt to ask.
If so, who/why?
2. Have you been looking at the previews/websites to learn about the new contestants?
3. Do you think this year's crop looks interesting or boring?
4. Do you know how to sew? Do you think you could do those challenges?
5. Were you happy or upset that Jeffery won last season?

Did you know that the entire state of California is full of pussies and liberals and combinations of both?
If you live in California, which one are you? A pussy, a liberal, or a combination of both?
Personally, I think I'm a combination of both.
Also, what do you think happened to make 84trillion think the entire population of CA is pathetic? Do YOU think the entire population of CA is pathetic? If so, why?
Are there "cool" and "uncool" people on TQC (in regards to your TQC personality)?
What does it take to be a "cool" person?
Are you a "cool" tqcer?

3) Probably not but really I just think it's a funny question.
I use a diffuser to blowdry. Gracias!
Do you like when your nipples get hard?
What do you think of these?
What kind of other associations do you make between states and the residents of said states?
Is there a reason you feel this way, or is it just a gut feeling?
Is it acceptable to watch kid shows in the morning just so you don't have to watch soap operas and Dr phill?
I have this cheap Mary Kate & Ashley watch I got at Walmart, and the cool thing about it is that it has a digital face but it has a silver band so that it looks more like some of the analog watches you can buy. It's falling apart since I've had it for years, and I want to get a new watch, but all the digital watches I've seen look more sporty and not very professional.
Where should I look for a digital watch that looks like an analog watch? I don't even know what to Google.
2. If so, why? (If your answer is "Because it's degrading to women", please explain how you feel it is degrading to women.)
3. Have you ever or would you ever break up with someone for enjoying pornography?
No, to all.

Even though I wasn't blood related, he always was a big fan of me, and was always proud of me. But almost everyone there is going to be from that side of the family, except for my immediate family. Who has already said they understand if I can't get the day off. I'm torn because I don't like furnerals (they're more for those grieving than the one who passed on) but am I required to be emotional support?
What was the weather like for you today?
So... did they, or didn't they?
I can't seem to find the replacement anywhere. Does anyone know where I can replace it, or how it can be fixed? I'd rather fix it, tbh :) I can find replacement pens on eBay, but they all want "wacom-penabled" and this one doesn't seem to be.
These are the things I remember:
It is Russian.
It begins with a K, and is followed by either an H or an A.
It sounds like carmel (not CARE-UH-MEL, I mean car-mul). That's how I told myself I would remember it, by saying carmel. But now I just want to call him carmel.
What is his last name, TQC? I googled Russian surnames that begin with K...haha. Right. There was about a billion. Which is why this is probaly the most obscure question ever and there's no way I will find out without asking him.
ALSO. Have your favorite shows been effected by the writers' strike? Which shows? What do you think of it?
mines a mix of:
Rob from High Fidelity - music obsessed
Holden caulfield from Catcher in the rhy - random phases of hate and swearing vastly
Bernard from Black Books - the non drunk version
p.s as a female tis weird my fictional twins are male
We found each other on Facebook 3 weeks ago.. and since then we can't stop talking to each other..
We decided to go to a music show this week end and to meet before, and eat in a restaurant.
(Olive Garden kind of place) and after we go at that music show together.
Im the one who have to take care of the reservation at that restaurant.
What should I do? Im not sure about the time I should make the reservation. How much time to allow people to eat.
The show is at 7pm and it's just across the street.
...go on a roller coaster without a seat belt? It's a really twisty one, with loop-de-loops and all, and the only thing you can depend on to keep your ass in the seat is the protective brace and your own strength
...eat a bowl of live scorpions? It's considered a delicacy in the Far East. You'll be instructed how to properly eat them without getting stung. There's about 7 scorpions in the bowl
...be buried alive with a corpse? You're given a flashlight and an oxygen tank and you'll be placed in a coffin with a fresh body, and buried, 6 feet under. In 6 hours, they'll dig you back up again. The oxygen tank is there just in case you need it
...brutally punch out a complete stranger? You're given brass knuckles and driven to a medical building, where you'll be hiding in the bushes. The next person who exits the building, you let 'em have it, full force in the face. You'll probably do some serious damage that will result in stitches, dental work and possible facial reconstruction. After the punch, you hop back in the car and are driven back home. You must never make even an inquiry or the slightest contact with your victim. Ever. You won't face any criminal charges for the assault.
This is for the ladies. Ann Coulter just spent the last hour making out with some guy, and he got her really, really turned on. What you have to do to get your money is exchange panties with her, and wear them for the next 3 hours. She's wearing a thong, btw. You're assured up front that she has no sexually transmitted diseases
It can be anything- transit schedule, an event itinerary, list of fees, tv or radio station program listing, anything.

For me, it was that my file about my chronic depression decided to follow me from high school to college, and my adviser called me in for a conference because I wrote a paper on how not every person in the world contributes to the world/society in general.
Do people with a generally sunny disposition bug you, or are you one of them?
Do you think every person in the world is worth something, or are some people correct when they think they don't make an impact on the world?

Anyways, my apartment complex has been having this ongoing construction for about a month and a half. It's always loud shaking the roof-type construction.
One of my managers who I work with said I should see if I can get some money off a months rent because of what's going on. He along with quite a few others have said something like this in the last week or so. They all said they were under the impression there are rental rights regarding something like this.
I've Googled, and Googled and haven't found anything that mentions compensation. Does anyone have any ideas, or know a good amount about rental rights to know if I can be compensated? I don't even care if it's something minuscule like $50 bucks off the rent, it would just be nice to be compensated for all the shit that's been going on.

Non USAmericans: Have you ever seen or heard of green bean casserole served in your country? I'm Canadian and have never seen or tasted it.
What story do your parents always tell new boyfriends/girlfriends/friends about you from when you were a child?

She said that when a guy likes you, it's best to act like you don't really care. She said to act kind of interested, but nothing more than that. She claims that if you look easy, he'll be less interested.
I then asked a guy friend right next to us if it was true. I asked, "If you had a crush on a girl, and she acts like she really likes you back, would you lose interest in her?" He replied, "yes, kind of."
Tell me if you're a girl or a guy when you answer.
