TQC, when you were in school (or if you still are in school), did you ever have an assignment that you felt really silly doing?

I just had to write a critical analysis paper on an artwork that everyone in the class was assigned.  I was assigned this one "artwork" where the "artist" took Beanie Babies and deep fried them, and titled it "Fried Beanie Babies."  I just finished the paper and turned it in online and I feel really, really silly.

So my friend just made a comment about the guy that I'm talking to and how he is "annoying and will really bother me after a while" and I've been thinking about it constantly since she's said it. I know that I take people's opinions and comments into consideration much more than I should but it's been getting out of control lately. I know I need to stop caring what people think and find out things for myself but it seems to be hard.


Does is anyone else guilty of thinking like this?

1. (tl;dr) I just had a pretty intense panic attack (my heart is still racing, I'm trying to calm down) and I have a statistics test in 15 minutes. The syllabus says I need "official documentation" of my illness or "life situation" to be able to make up the test. Should I go take it now, and risk having another panic attack, and screwing up because I'm still tweeking out, or risk not being able to make it up? (I have a prescription for Xanax, and past appointments for PD that I suppose could be 'documentation')

Thanksgiving

 I'm traveling on two trains to get up to Long Island to spend Thanksgiving with family I don't really ever see.  I want to bring something to contribute to the day, because I think it'd be polite and a good gesture.  What can I bring that would travel well and be appreciated?

It can be something for the actual dinner or for the next day or just a generally random thing that you think would be appropriate.

On Wednesday I purchased a Nintendo DS lite at walmart for 130.00. Today I see in shop rites ad that with your price plus card, which I have. It's only 115.00. If I go to walmart and bring the ad, my shop rite card and my bill, will they give me my 15 dollars? I'd bring that one back if I hadn't already played games on it. So for 15 bucks I'm not willing to lose my saved games. So what do you think TQC, Can I get the 15 dollars or is it a lost cause?

I've been at my current company for about eight months as an admin, and I just found out that it's customary for pretty much everyone to give everyone else a holiday card in December. I want to write them all out during my four day Thanksgiving weekend, but I have no idea what to write. The people I will be giving the cards to range from other admins to principal engineers to the president of the company. I want to write something simple, non-denominational, maybe even a little funny. I have about 50 to write. Any suggestions?

Okay, so by now, many of you have heard about the girl who committed suicide after an ex-friend's parents created a fake Myspace to harass her.

Though this happened a year ago, it's been all over the internet lately. The name, address, phone number, and business name of the perpetrators has been leaked everywhere.

What is your opinion of this?

Hay TQC,
So....I was stupid and promised my manager I'd make chocolate chip cookies for the store meeting tonight. Well, we have on the upwards of 25-30 something employees that will be attending. How many cookies should I make?Keep in mind....we have some HEIFERS.
Should I take the easy expensive route and either buy cookies that already are made and pretend I make them, get pre-made dough and make them, or the homemade way and spend hours slaving over the oven?

Holiday Cards

Do you send out christmas/holiday cards?

I'm thinking bout maybe doing some, it's something to do :P

[edit:  what kinds of things do you write in the personalized notes ??? ]

Do you think you could keep track of the location of 70 to 90 people a day? (Meaning, as a receptionist and knowing everyone's names)  But people walking in and out to go to the bathroom, to smoke, to grab lunch, to talk on their cell phone. People moving from one wing to the other many times a day to visit a co-workers desk or attend a meeting. Would you be able to accurately and consistently track in your mind the whereabouts of this many people (or more)?

Nerdy stuff

So, I'm downloading my weekly fix through a torrent-thing, and I run the file through VLC to check how it's going. Fabulous video but no audio. Same thing happens in DivX player.

The odd thing is that it seems to be the same file-type as what I normally get: [Program- s02e0x - h264-aac-dvb-t.mp4] The other files continue to work. This is roughly the point at which I fail the internet. I have a dim understanding that I probably need to get a codec or something from somewhere, but I'm not sure how to go about that. Help, TQC?

And, just to keep everyone else entertained, what are some creative and colourful terms for being drunk?

1. Should I go to my college commencement ceremony?

Background: Despite the fact that we have 2 cap & gowns already at my house, my school requires you to buy another set or you don't get graduation tickets. This pisses me off for some reason -- $50 to participate in commencement, a fee I think is completely unnecessary. It's a fairly large graduating class with high anonymity.. they call your name, but they don't do individual recognition for honors or anything. A good half of the families have to sit in the ice rink and watch the ceremony on a TV. The "diploma" they hand you is actually a flyer of how you can purchase a wonderfully-pricey-yet-awkward photo of yourself graduating. The whole thing takes about 2 hours.

I always thought it would mean something to me to go, but I'm pissed off about the school milking me out of another $50. My mom wants me to go and is willing to pay the $50. (I told her I think the money's better off spent elsewhere.) My boyfriend wants me to go too, because I encouraged him to go last year when he had the same doubts. He's all graduation is a big deal, very important day, blah blah, wanna be there for you, blah blah blah, you can't not go, blah blah.

If it makes any difference, I'm currently interviewing for grad schools so it's not like I'm done with school completely.

Death of a lunchbag.

I have this cute little insulated bag that I bring my lunch in every day. But the straps are really screwing up, and it's branded with the logo from a store I used to work at that well, let's just say I don't like them anymore. I usually have lean cuisines or healthy choice meals to bring to work, so a traditional lunch bag doesn't always work because the stuff doesn't fit.

1. Do you usually bring your lunch or buy it?

2. What do you carry your food to work/school in?

3. Any suggestions to where I could find a cute/stylish insulated lunch bag for a decent price?

4. When was the last time you ate out? Where was it?

5. What was the last thing you cooked from scratch yourself?

So TQC, here's a bit of a hypothetical for you:

Your friend buys you a ticket to visit your hometown for Thanksgiving. You haven't been to your hometown in 5 years, and your grandmother lives there and so does one other friend whom you miss dearly.

You ask your friend if taking a day to visit these people would be cool with them. They then proceed to send you a snotty email about how they spent their "good money" on your trip and you already have plans all weekend, which you must do because it's their "on their dime".

The "fun plans" include going to a knitting party with a bunch of old ladies you don't know, driving around looking for a venue to have a wedding, other wedding-planning-lackey things that could be done on a weekend that you aren't there. Basically things you don't want to do. When you suggest things you would like to do, she again pulls out the "i spent my money, we are doing what i say only" routine.


TQC, wtf would you do/say?

I want to just cancel, because she is being stupid, but is that completely out of line?


edit: Um, no she's being even more ridiculous and I'm canceling. omg.

1. A makes a self sacrifice for B which results in harm to A that otherwise wouldn’t have been felt, but also reduces the harm that B suffers.
2. A finds himself in a similar situation as B, but B does not make a self sacrifice and therefore A suffers great harm

Even IF B helps in 2 in the same manner as A did in 1, at best, there can be equity. Since there is no self benefit or profit, is it worth A to make self sacrifice? (assuming there is no moral/ethical/personal VALUE for A helping B).
This seems to suggest it is NEVER worthwhile to help someone where self sacrifice is likely (or that if it is, the BENEFIT is only present in the mind).

What is the flaw in this argument?

Is this fair?

So my roommates have a habit of leaving piles of  dishes in the sink. I clean every dish that i use after using it, and i don't often eat here in the house, so i never have dishes laying around. My roommates also decided to throw a party, which then made our house a little messy. Today my roommate asked me if i would mind loading and unloading the dishwasher, because "me and soandso (roommates name) have cleaned up a lot lately ". I said, fine but " none of those dishes belong to me".  I'm guessing they don't think i do my part, but i am never downstairs in the living room (where there is a ton of mess) and I'm never doing dishes that don't belong to me...i've done it, but i'm tired of being that person that is so nice and accomadating to people that can take care of themselves.

If you live with roommates (not SO's) do you feel that you should have to join in and help them clean up their mess? 
Do you think if your roommates are throwing a party (one that you could care less about) that you should have to clean up because you live there?

i'm not a nasty person, or even dirty, but it baffles me that my roommate would ask me to do this, even though they know that i don't create the messes around the house

What was your first car?
What was the cause of it's demise?

(I owned a beat-up '89 Mustang 5-speed convertible. Love of my life, I swear. Our affair came to an end however, when I was rear-ended going to - dorky i know - a mock trial competition. 2 cars later and I own another 5-speed convertible Mustang. This time an '04. I had to have it. I'm a ridiculous Mustang-lover. It was a while in coming, but worth the wait for sure.)

1. What is this song (link to sendspace download)? It was in a trailer for Lost. My Googling is telling me it's either Mozart or Verdi's Requiem (Dies Irae), but I've listened to both pieces and it doesn't really sound like either to me (granted those both have choruses, and the Lost trailer doesn't).

2. Do you know how to "crank dat soulja boy"? If so, are you a furry?

This is driving me crazy.

Can anyone tell me how to make a song list on itunes? Meaning the kind you post on the internet so people can see what you listen to... I want to make a webpage so I can offer all of my music to people for trade and I swear to god I used to be able to do it but now I'm Very Severely Retarded.

Thanks and please don't kill me for asking a question that probably the whole world knows the answer to.

Grant Lee Buffalo/Grant Lee Phillips is on artist/group that when ever I hear them takes me back to a certian time in my life. It doesn't matter that the songs could have come out long after that time I hear him/them and I am overwhelmed with memories of fall and the city of Ann Arbor and all the great times I have had there.

Is there an artist of song that does this to you?
What song is it?
What is the period of time or memory it brings back for you?

1.what's the last weird situation you've been in/thing that's happened to you?
I had to call a stationary supply company today. a week ago I briefly used one of those air duster/can of air things to clean my keyboard at work. I borrowed it from a co-worker for maybe a minute or two. I kept it well away from my face while I sprayed the keyboard, yet somehow some of the bitterant got into my mouth & on my lips (possibly from me touching the keyboard, then my mouth). it's STILL on my lips. I can taste it when I lick them, and I've literally scrubbed my lips to try to get the taste to go away. it didn't work. I ran out of ideas, so I called the company. but still, wtf, who does that happen to?? and why would it stay on my mouth for a week?!

2.what song are you listening to right now, and what does it make you think of/what do you imagine when you hear it?
Garbage - "The World Is Not Enough". I think about Bond. James Bond.

3.have you ever slept so long that the next day you felt 'over tired'?
yes, last night. I fell asleep at 8:45/9:00pm and got up for work at 7am this morning. I usually go to bed well past midnight. I felt so tired for most of the morning.

Are we birthday buddies?
Mine's August 26th.

How old were you when you were told Santa Clause wasn't real? Or did you figure it out on your own?
I was told when I was nine, but I already didn't believe. My mom told me after my great grandpa died, because he was our family's "Santa".

Are you more offended by people that are randomly rude on the internet, or randomly rude in person?
I guess the internet, mostly because they usually have no reason to be rude, where as in person you could have unknowingly offended them or something.

How many piercings have you had in your life?
Five, not counting ears. Septum, left and right nostrils, smiley, and tongue webbing.

Sweetest thing anyone has ever said to you?

Or alternatively, things that make you go AWWW and melt a little.

Mine:
Me: ...Well, I don't know. I just like thinking that I mean something to someone.
-pause-
Him: Do you want to know why I tease you so much?
Me: -nod-
Him: Because I love the way your face lights up when I apologize. And if I'm ever having a bad day, just hearing your voice makes everything okay again.
Me: ...!
Him: Sorry, that was sappy and stupid.
Me: -proceeds to melt-
