1. Do you have any idea what the significance of the title of Jewel's album 0304? It's not the release date or her birthday. My bff is trying to figure it out because her birthday is March 4, but this doesn't seem to be about that day. ETA: Jewel's birthday is May 23. My BFF's birthday is March 4, which is why she brought this up.

2. In space, astronauts must align themselves on the toilet very carefully because of suction and whatever. As part of their training, they have to practice using a toilet that has a camera, so they can see what they are doing and make sure they have everything lined up correctly. Could you work a job that required you to take a video of yourself on the shitter, and then review it with your boss?

3. I read somewhere that while the majority of pencils sold in America have erasers on them, many pencils sold in Europe do not have erasers. Is this because Europeans make fewer mistakes? Or do they just write continental-style, with a pencil in one hand and an eraser in the other?

4. For people in the US - what days do you get off school/work for Thanksgiving, if any?

Direct Deposit Debacle

My employer requires a VOIDED CHECK in order to set up Direct Deposit.

I do not have any checks - none were given to me when I opened my bank account with Bank of America. I have had my account for over 1 year.

1. Will Bank of America issue/print a check for me at a local branch? (sorry if this sounds stupid, I'm a banking newb)

2. Are there any banks out there that will actually give me free checks upon opening an account?

I DO NOT want to waste $30 on ordering 150 checks when I only need 1...

Tattoo Question

Hey, quick questions for tattoo experts.

I got my tattoo about 5 months and all went well. However, just last week I started getting bumps on the outline and part of the shading. Its all black so its not an allergic reaction to any red or yellow ink. My questions:

Am I having a delayed allergic reaction? If not, what are the other possibilities? How do I fix this?

Thanks ahead of time!

When buying a new cell phone, what order do you prioritise stuff like brand/price/functions/extras/anything else?

I go for brand (Nokia), then whatever's cheapest. Then I tend to go for size/weight. Once it calls/texts/has an alarm clock everything else is a tie-breaker.

At the office I work at, we place people in jobs from all over the country to local positions in Minnesota. Most people have no idea that the place even has skyscrapers or civilization or anything. So TQC, I ask you, when someone says "I live in minnesota" such as myself, what do you think of how that person lives? Or, What's your image of Minnesota in general, and where is that based off of?

To put it more bluntly, please tell me in 1 or 2 sentences the most predominant traits of Minnesota's population and environment as you know it from whatever news or movies or people you know. I am really curious to see how we are perceived by non Minnesotans.

2. Where do you live? Would you like me to respond back with my answer on what I think of your region?

Has anyone here used NeoOffice before?
I'm trying to put it on my computer because I really need Microsoft Office on my precious macbook. I've finished the download, but now I can't find it in the Finder. There's an icon for it on my desktop that's named "NeoOffice-2.2.2-Intel.dmg" There's another that's a Quicktime file named "NeoOffice-2.2.2-Intel.dmg.torrent." When I try to open the quicktime one I get a message saying "The file could not be opened. This file is not a movie." When I try to open the other file I get a message saying, "The following disk images have failed to open: NeoOffice-2.2.2-Intel.dmg Reason: Not recognized"
I've looked at the the FAQ's and I can't find anything that's helped.
Can someone please help me?

Boy, are we ever going to be hearing about this one. And for once, I agree with the complaints. I never really cared that people were saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas," but this is just stupid.

So my question is: Do you agree that this is ridiculous? Or do you not really think it's that a big deal?

To me, Santa saying "Ha ha ha" just isn't the same.

I was super excited at first when my two friends and I began looking at off-campus housing for our next year of college. I'm going to be a junior, and twenty years old!, but my parents are still bitching me out about it, asking anxious questions and generally being pessimistic. So,

Those of you who are/were college students, did you move to off-campus housing? What year?

Did you have a student loan in place? Did you have a way to use it to help you pay your monthly rent living off campus, instead of your (dorm) room & board? Was it hard for you to make rent living with roommates? (I don't see how it would be, especially when I have a loan, but my parents seem to disagree. The places I'm looking at are about 410/mo per person, with 10 months leases.) Did you work to help you cover expenses? Did you have a car to commute or did you get by without one? DID YOU END UP ON THE STREETS STARVING AND COLD AND FAIL OUT OF ALL YOUR CLASSES AND BECOME A DRUNK BECAUSE YOU WERE NO LONGER LIVING ON CAMPUS?!?! Please tell me your experiences living off of campus for the first time.

Ordering Internationally

For the sake of this question, if you live in the US, please just pretend that you live outside of the US.
Say you're shopping online and you find an item that you'd really like to buy. The description says in bold lettering "This item cannot be shipped outside of the continental United States." You live in say... Peru. (Or any other country that isn't the US.)

Do you place the order anyways? If so... WHY?

Now pretend you live in the US (some of you won't have to pretend, so just revert to your default).
Suppose the item is a special order item that will take 3 to 4 weeks to arrive. The description reads "This is a special order item that will take 3 to 4 weeks to arrive. Express shipping is not available for this item."

Would you select Express shipping for the item anyways?
Would you call the company and yell and scream at them for not delivering the item the following day? If so, WHY?

In general... When you are ordering stuff online, do you actually read the item's description?

What can I buy as a christmas gift that would be appropriate for either a male or felmale aged 30 and up? (Mostly up, lol). I'm the youngest being only 23, so you can probably understand why I might be a little stumped.

I have a few ideas but I think they're boring and cliche.

My ideas are all 'Themed Baskets' either consisting of chocolates, or jams and crakcers, or hot chocolates and a mug.

I feel like ten dollars isn't enough to be very creative.

Any ideas?!?!

Inspired by this spectacular post

1. Is it really all that odd that the mail man opens the screen door to put the mail inside the front porch? It's not like he could get into my house, and he doesn't snoop around or linger, plus it saves him from having to bend over with his mailbag to put the letters in the slot.

Oh and what I got was: a Domino's ad, a circular for Linens N Things, and a sample of Always pantiliners. Yay! Mail that wasn't bills at all.

2. What song from your youth or artist do you hear all the time piped in on Muzak? I always heare the Cranberries. I loved them. Well I still love them, but it just doesn't seem right that they are on Muzak all the time.

Feral cats in Queensland, Australia

I have never owned a cat. I've never really desired a cat. And yet, two nights ago, when my neighbour mentioned that she was considering trapping a feral cat thad had been hanging around, I found myself saying 'don't do that; the RSPCA euthanises feral cats'. I know this, because I stupidly caught and surrendered a feral flea-infested kitten when I was 10 years of age.

So, I said 'I'll feed it, and see if it gets any tamer'.

I hadn't actually paid that much attention to the cat before, but having agreed to feed it, I asked Stuart (other half) if he had seen it. He said he had, that it was howling in the middle of the night, and that it was very skinny. We bought two little tins of cat food and last night I put one out. Half an hour later the feral cat was eating it.

Google tells me this cat is probably too old to be tamed. I don't think it's an adult cat - it is rather small and very, very skinny - but it's not a newly weaned kitten. I have bought a 'dual-bowl' from the cheap store (so I can give it water and food) and some pet food (friskies kibble and some of the little whiskas satchets. It had canned fancy feast last night. It seemed to like that.).

Now, cat people:

* How often would you feed this cat? Once or twice a day?
* Will canned food give it the trots, as it does with some dogs?
* If I bought a cat basket from a cheap store and put it outside, would that be a good idea?
* How do I find a vet who will alter and vaccinate it? Do I just ring around and ask if they will do it?
* How much does it cost to alter and vaccinate a cat? I will need to save:(
* Am I being stupid? Should I just let nature take it's course? (this will probably involve starvation:/)

My work put up a sign that said "You may request days off for Thanksgiving OR Christmas. Not both!"

How would you feel if your work had that sign up?

I work in a sandwich store that employs mostly high school students. I don't think it's fair to them to have to choose which holiday they have to spend with their families. What if their families take vacation? We are closed on the actual days, but open all of the ones after. I dunno. It just sits wrong with me.

EDIT: I think it's the wording of the sign that bothers me. I think they intended it to be for people who wanted to take a week or or something, not people like me who only need a half day off or just one day.

College majors

If you attended or are now attending college:

2. What was your first choice for major?
3. What was your last? (The one you finished with, or plan to finish with)
4. Why did you change your major?

My mom just called me and yelled at me for not telling her I didn't go to school.  I fell asleep and lost track of time.  I haven't lived with her for over three years so it's not like I'm used to telling her anything (I live with my sis now).  Her phone cut out mid yell--should I answer when she calls back?  I don't need to hear her yell at me and it's not like there's much love or respect.

Have you ever written a letter to a celebrity and gotten a real response? If so, who? What did you write to them in your letter? Where they cool in their response?

I never have, I know a girl who used to correspond with David J. (of Bauhaus). He wrote her long letters and sent her stuff. Seems like a down-to-earth guy.

pointless question time

So my mom is badgering me to call her boyfriend (who is a mechanic) to ask about what's wrong with my car. It's having a bit of trouble starting, but lately it's gotten better. Should I call him? Why am I so reluctant? If I don't call him, should I risk driving 4 hours back home for thanksgiving and having him take a look at it when I get there?

Also, should I try going to a random salon and getting my hair cut? The thing is, I don't know anyone around here who has particularly good hair that gets it cut in this town, so I can't really ask them where they go. I am afraid for my hair, though.

Last week a "friend" from my math class walked me to my car. Today he walked with me to my car for the second time and then asked me to give him a ride to his dorm (about five minutes away & its a lame 47 degrees out)! Did he use me for a ride?! Next time he decides to walk with me to my car what do you think I should do? Punch him and run?

ETA more information: we're kinda more acquaintances then friends.. the only time we see each other/talk is during my math class. One time he asked for my phone number...

Earlier someone asked what was the worst thing some had said/done to you.

1. Now I want to know what is the worst thing you've ever done/said to somebody.
For me, me and 2 friends wrote a list of all the things we hated about a person. She found it. I definitely regret it and thankfully, when I moved away, we parted as friends. It was the stupidest thing I have ever done and it horrifies me that I did it.

2. Have you heard this from Gift Grub:
If you're a football (soccer) fan you'll love it. It's "Jose Mourinho" singing Shuddupa Ya Face ("You will pick Shevchenko" "No!").

Hey, there, thequestionclubbers.  I just got my very first set of luggage...and it's LAVENDER!!  How awesome is that?

The real question:  How do I get rid of the horrible plastic-y smell?  I have 2 weeks before I go on my first trip.

Sprinkling baking soda is not an option as 1) I don't have any and 2) I have no way to clean the baking soda out of them.

Does Howie Day's Collide make you wistful or thoughtful?

Do you think that, generally, musical artists become less creative when they go into rehab for substance abuse?

Would then substance abuse be a crutch for the artist who otherwise may never have done what many people love?

I missed a ton of Japanese class and have a dumb question for anyone who can speak Japanese:

Dumb question:

When linking nominals, when do you use の and when do you use な?

For example:



etc. I'm missing it. Can you use either one, or do you just use な with adjective-like nominals like "bad", "convenient", and "pretty"?

And now a question for the (female) non-Japanese-speakers:

Would you ever donate one of your eggs? And if so, under what conditions? Monetary compensation? Only if it was a close friend/relative who needed them? Just out of goodwill?

I'm trying to watch NBC Video Rewind, but it's not working because they don't like Canadians.

I know there are sites out there where I can view the site through their address, thereby making NBC's site *think* I'm in the States. But I don't know where to find such a thing, or even what to Google. Any advice?

1)What do you have piling up?

Me: unread library books, recorded episodes of the newshour,etc.

2)Is there enough NPR in your area?

I think there's too little for me. I often end up driving home late, and the only choices are classical music or regular music on the radio. I miss being able to listen to talk of the nation or even better the BBC.

3)If your teacher has chills and sweats alternating, should he come to class?


What would you think of this person?

You asked the girl who got the highest score on the last test what score she got on the recent test. At first, she said, "I did better than I expected." Then, you asked, "What score did you get?" And she responded, "Ummmm..." *shrugs*

Then, you looked over and saw that she got a perfect score.

 I asked my ex to send my my stuff in the mail because I'm going to be needing some of it soon, or else he could have taken his time with it.  He asked if I could just come get it (he lives 100 miles away) and I said no because it's easier for him to stuff it in a box and ship it (like 2 books and a few cds).  Then he told me he doesn't feel like sending it because he doesn't like me.

Interview with a Bookstore...

I've got a 30 minute interview with my college bookstore tomorrow morning at 9:00. I've never had a steady job (volunteering at my church and babysitting are the only things resembling a job I have under my belt) and I have no clue what to expect. It seems like a really casual environment but I don't want to be underdressed. So, TQC:

1) Would a nice sweater, jeansskirt, and ballet flats be good enough for this interview? If not, my other option is a skirt (I have no khaki pants =/) EDIT: Thanks guys, about the skirt issue! =)

2) Any tips as to what to expect or how to make it seem like I'd be a good worker, even though I've never had a job before? If it matters, I'm only applying for buy back of books, so I won't be working but for a little bit.

Thanks guys!

1. I ended an unsatisfying but not awful relationship with my boyfriend, and now our mutual friends seem a little judge-y about how upbeat I am. What should I do, TQC? (Non-serious answers welcomed.)

2. What's sexier than confidence?

Boys and girls

I'm thinking about moving out of the house I'm living in and getting a 1 bedroom apartment, despite the fact that my roommates would be terribly upset and might end up in somewhat of a financial predicament.

The problem is, they don't get along with my boyfriend. He was living in the house, I moved in, everyone started fighting, and now he's moving out and I'm constantly listening to random insulting comments about him, and it really pains me.

I would give them 6 weeks rent and everything... but I don't know if it's morally the right thing to do.

I'm sick of being stressed about this. What would you do, TQC?

*addendum* These roommates of mine are by no means bad people. I don't want them to be misconstrued. Things have just gotten out of hand, and it sucks. But they're good people, and they've tried to be considerate, apologizing for putting me in the middle of everything, and all that....

I don't want it to seem like I'm some great martyr, or anything like that. It's just a shitty situation that I'm stuck in the middle of.

So... Yeah... Just clearing that up.

So I have been apartment hunting for the past 3 months, because I hate my current living situation. A few questions for you apartment dwellers.

1. Would you be pissed if your roommate had her boyfriend over 6 out of the 7 nights a week. If yes, what would you do?

2. On my apartment search I found a listing on craigslist for a LUXURY apartment that usually sells for $2800 a month, but listed at $1100 a mo. The guy has emailed me 2x and in his final email has stated he is on a work contract in Greece for 5 years so he can only FedEx me the keys to view the apartment. Has anyone heard of a scam like this before?

My husband lived in Hawaii about 6 years ago (2002) and he had this hard candy, fruity, round, with many colors looking like a wheel (like those huge lollipops you get at candy stores). They came individually wrapped in a bag with Japanese writing on it. The only thing we've been able to find out is that they might be called Windmills but we haven't been able to find anything of the sort. Anyone know what I'm talking about and where I can get some?

Green Bean Casserole

So, I decided that I want to make a green bean casserole for thanksgiving this year. The trouble is, I hate mushrooms...

Any suggestions on mushroom replacements? If you usually use cream of mushroom soup, any other soup ideas?

I've never had a green bean casserole before, but they always looked so yummy and I really wanted to try it. Gosh darn nasty mushrooms....
