My parents and I are slightly famous in our extended family and our neighborhood for our fudge that we make every Christmas.  I want to send some to my SO in Britain.  I think I heard somewhere that you can ship perishables as long as it's not meat, fish, or dairy products, but I don't know if there are any other things included in that.  Can I ship fudge to my SO in England?

J-Lo should just stop trying, Y/n?

You've planned the perfect bank robbery. No one will ever be able to trace it back to you, no one will ever notice the changes in your lifestyle, you would have to do very little to commit the actual robbery, and the only way you would ever be convicted is if you confessed to what you did. Due to the nature of the robbery, there would be very little impact on the bank's patrons--they would lose a few cents each at most.

So: Would you do it?

If you would, what's the first thing you would buy?
If you wouldn't, would you tell the bank about the loophole in their security?

I have some other questions I meant to ask, but I forgot them. I'll ask later! Sorry for so many billion-parted questions. :/

TQC, my dvd player refuses to work. The tray thing won't spit out to let me load a new movie, nor will it play.

How can I talk some sense into it, aside from taking a baseball bat to it? (If it continues to be a problem, that will become a more viable option)

Is there a trick release to DVD players?

If I don't go the baseball bat route, what other methods of destruction do you recommend?

My teacher was really pushing for me to use fire in a project due tomorrow, but all weekend it's been windy and rainy. I was supposed to set lettering on fire in the dirt, but all my attempts have ended badly and painfully because of the not so ideal weather. Obviously, it isn't working, but do you think my professor will let me have another day or two to work out another concept? I really want to not do actual fire, but he thinks it's the only way to go for this project.

This is out of sheer curiosity, I swear.

What's the most disturbing/disgusting pornographic video you've ever seen?

At this point, I'd like to explain what prompted this.
There's this guy at work. I think he's a sex addict, or surely will be in a few years. One of those guys who feels that no subject is taboo.
Anyway, we have a fantastic time. He's become convinced that I'm the most depraved individual in the southern hemisphere, and sometimes likes to make suggestions.
He came across one particular video, and I just watched it. It wasn't pretty. So, basically, I want to see how far down the rabbit hole everyone else has ventured.

Oh, and this probably goes without saying, but the comments may be disturbing to some readers.


Do you consider the idea of waking up to find your loved one watching you sleep (not in an 'i want to kill you' way, in a 'aw she/he looks cute, i love them' way) creepy?

My friend and I don't consider it creepy. But lots of people seem to. So, opinions?

Happily Ever Afters...

I'm a junior in high school. My boyfriend and I have been going out for about 7 months now. I know its not an entirely long time, but he's been my best friend for a while and we're very close. The other day, he and I were talking about college and life after high school. And it made me remeber...just how scared I am.
The thing I'm scared of most..

Is that he'll make plans to go somewhere with out me. He'll go to a college and not want me there. Or that we'll make plans to live close to each other [my secret hope is that we can live together, in a small apartment or something] and he'll get sick of me the month before senior year is over.

I know I have a while to worry about this, but I'm it worried me. Has anyone else had a relationship that lasted out of high school? What happened?

Are any of you plumbers?

We had a guy come in under the WaterWise program to change our showerhead and install aerators to our taps.

Now we have NIL water pressure in the shower and bathtub and it is awful.

Do you have any idea how, or where I can find out how, to fix this? And get our water pressure back?

It's like now the taps only allow a certain amount of water through and it's very tiny and just makes the showers much, much longer because without pressure, the conditioner is not coming out of my hair. Or the body wash. Or anything. And I can't afford to take longer showers! As it is I'm taking too long in the morning.

Please help!

First he turned off the water, then he did all this stuff, and then he turned the water back on. What I missed is what he did. :(

2)  Completely unrelated hypothetical situation:
          You have a piece of jewelry that you absolutely love.  It's not uber-expensive (figure about $20), it's not an heirloom, and there's very little sentimental value attached to it, you just like it.  It looks cool, it feels right, you're used to it, whatever.  One day you lose it.  A few days later you find it on the sidewalk.  Do you pick it up again or just go buy a new one?  Does the type of jewelry make a difference?  Anything else that you would take into account (like weather, traffic, etc) when deciding whether or not to pick it up?

1. if you were my remote control...where would you be hiding (aside from the obvious and yet incorrect assumption of between the couch cushions / under the couch)?

I've torn my entire suite apart and the remote is nowhere to be found. This really sucks because the channel up button on my tv does not work so i have to navigate with the down button and it takes forever. It's painful when I'm watching two different shows and switch back and forth in the commercial breaks.

2. Do they have remote controls with the pager system yet? I know there are car keys and cordless phones that have pagers...if there isn't remotes with this feature, what the hell is taking so long for someone to design one?

Am I stupid to feel upset/offended by the following situation?

I'm friends with 3 girls. We all get on equally well, but as 2 are slightly insecure and shy they slightly worship me.
However, one of these 2 is having a party, and last night there was a mini-pre-party to do the invitations.
I'm more involved in the organisation of this party than the remainder is, and it was at the house of one of the people who really likes me.
I was completely ignored out of this, and then someone else who isn't going to the party was invited.
Granted, I wouldn't have gone if they had asked me, because I like being at home, but is it wrong to feel slightly offended, even more so when I was blanked this morning?

1. My brother is 15. He doesnt really talk to anyone in my family. Whenever he's around my mom or me he just says "whatever, i dont care, etc" as a response. It seems like he's always in a bad mood. Today he told told my mom that he feels like no one cares about him. We take him places he wants to go and he's definitely not neglected. ETA: We're not taking him places and buying him things to make him happy. I was just trying to say that we treat him regularly. Is this just typical 15 year old behavior or a little more serious?

This is probably a silly question, but oh well. I could have sworn my credit was in the toilet, because I recently got a car and a new apartment and a new job and I'm totally broke. But suddenly I'm getting flooded with "You're Pre-Approved, YAY!" letters. Does that mean that if I apply for one of these cards, they won't turn me down? Because I'd seriously love to transfer my debt over to a new card for that year of 0% interest, let me tell you.

If I apply for a card, should I go for the American Express Blue (no fee)? It seems pretty neat, but I'm not sure who actually accepts AmEx. Would Discover be better?

My boyfriend is a great guy and very handy but not very good at spelling...and I mean not good at all. I try to help him sound things out and use some logic but it just doesn't seem to work.

1. Sometimes, when I'm ending a phone conversation, I nearly accidentally say 'I love you' or some other intimate-ish thing, even if I'm talking to, say, my university admissions office, or the bank. Is this bad? Do you ever do this?

2. Did you ever play Marco Polo whilst swimming? I thought it was a common thing, but I mentioned it to a friend and she was like "WHAAAAA?"

3. I read an article about people who do clean-up/removal for sites of violent crimes. They mentioned how dangerous spinal fluid can be, especially if it's inhaled. How? I'd never heard of that before and Google has nothing relevant.

2 Heavy Questions

1. Angelina Jolie used to be the girl that a lot of girls would choose to make out with/sleep with. But she's turned into a skinny bitch and is a little too much of a responsible mommy/international spokesperson to be still considered the top piece of ass. She's no longer that bisexual wild child. So, ladies, who is the new hot girl you'd go gay for?

2. Let's assume we're all single. You have a massive, can't-quit-it crush on a coworker/fellow student, but he or she is taken. Every now and then you see the object of your passion smile at you and you feel that they're interested and your heart skips a beat, but you know that they're off the market. One day, in a tragic Segway accident, he or she loses both legs, mid-thigh. It's very sad, and you mourn this loss, and in a fit of pettiness, their SO dumps them because they can't date a special-needs person. The next day while you're at lunch, your crush wheels over (in their new wheelchair) and asks you if you want to go out to dinner. Is this too good to be true, or is a legless person too difficult to be in a relationship with?

PlayStation 3 Backwards Compatible + Kingdom Hearts = WTF?!

I'm at bullterrierlove's house and we were going to play KH with her brand-new PS3, only for some reason it keeps on saying that the Dualshock analog controller is not connected and won't let us play it.  TT_TT  

She has the backwards compatible one which is supposed to let us play the PS and PS2 games, only so far it hasn't.  

Okay, so here's the question(s):  

Has this happened to you before?  

Do you know why this might've happened?

ETA:  It's working!!!!  XDDDD  She just pushed this one button that she'd said would work and then it did and now she's shoving that fact in her dad's face.  (he didn't believe her when she said to do that.)

So, I need to go to the dentist. Cavity in a molar. big one. Doesn't hurt, aches if I eat sweet stuff or poke it, whatever.

Haven't been to the dentist in... over a year, i believe. And the place I went last time, I don't remember the name of, so I can't exactly call them up for my X-rays or whatever. (Previous dentist place probably does have my dentist stuff, from maybe 2, 3 years ago?)

So now I'm going to be calling dentists in my area, because conveniently there are a lot of them where I live now.

1) What questions do I need to ask when I call?

So far I have "Are you taking new patients," "Do you take this insurance"(and do they directly file it, or would i have to pay and get reimbursed), and "When would I be able to make an appointment?"

2) The cavity is right on the gumline on the outside of a molar. It's large enough to easily be visible. Am i basically fucked when I go in, or is this something they can deal with like a more "normal" cavity?

Edit: Why can't my teeth be smart and just move forward like shark teeth? It would solve part of my wisdom teeth and my cavity thing all in one go. :(

What were brothels like in 1800s France?  By the way, I have looked for info about this, but I can never find out anything about FRENCH brothels in that time period, and I don't know if they would be different.  So if anyone has any knowledge, or read any good, historically accurate books with those scenes, let me know please!

Do you believe that Jesus was the son of God?  Why or why not?

How do you keep yourself from opening your mouth and saying stupid shit?

Do you admire people more when they occasionally give concise opinions, or when they are very opinionated but tend to ramble?

PS: Before anyone thinks I'm asking you hw questions, the brothel question is because I'm writing a story about a prostitute in 1800s France and I want to make it at least somewhat believable.

The other questions were inspired by a debate we had in philosophy about religion, and the fact that I feel I need to learn to shut up during debates. 

Double shipment

I placed a clothing order with a company and today I recieved 2 boxes with the same things in them. I only was charged once and the company doesn't do exchanges over the internet and I would have to take them to the nearest location to return them.

What would you do keep them or drive and take them back or should i call the company?

Curse You, Advertising Industry!

Are the new Dolce and Gabbana commercials (the one where the gorgeous chick and gorgeous man are running around New York City, while techno music is playing in the background, before they kiss carbon copies of themselves) supposed to be confusing and completely impossible to understand? Does anyone actually get them?

...or are they the Obsession commercials of today?

have you ever done anything badass?
what was it?

(probably one of the most badass things i did - was secretly moving out of my dorm without telling my roommates a singular word. they were complete crazies. at roughly 3am i enlisted an accomplice to secretly move all my personal effects silently from the dorm. we quietly moved the entire thing out AS THE ROOMMATES SLEPT- even placing one's chicken nuggets on her desk because the fridge was mine. it was no small feat. but at 7am when one of them woke, and found me taking the last hanger, i shrugged and said 'have a nice life!' - i have never felt more satisfaction)

I want to get my guy an electric razor for Christmas. He already has one, but he always has problems getting the hairs underneath his chin/neck area. Any recommendations for a good one that gets those pesky hairs, and preferably also isn't too irritating on the skin?

I met a pretty good friend through work. We've been hanging out socially for the past couple of months. We talk about our personal lives and what not. Today, I found out that she's been ratting a mutual friend out to our boss (about coming in late, taking long lunches, etc.). I suspect she may have been ratting me out about some things, as well.

Would you attempt to separate work from the real world and still hang out with this person? Would you avoid them completely? Or would you tell them off about it?

Misc. questions

1. My bf is into metal. Death metal, regular metal, thrash, hardcore, old skool punk (okay, not technically metal, but same idea), etc. I am also into metal, just nowhere near as much as he is.

I want to get him something for Christmas that is metal-oriented. Concert tickets or something. No CDs as he's a computer geek and can get pretty much any album he wants off of the internet.

So do you guys know of any good metal bands touring as of right now?

Bands he digs: Vomitron, Slayer, Sepultura, Crowbar, Op Ivy, Meshuggah (who are touring with fucking Ministry next year, yay!), Lamb of God, Throwdown, Hatebreed, Pantera (no way they're touring, *sigh*). Etc.

Any ideas? Edit: We live in Maryland.

2. Do you know of any good, cheap Christmas presents that I can make? Preferably something like a good sugar cookie recipe and a creative way of wrapping said-cookies.

3. When was the best Christmas you ever had and why? What about the worst?

4. What do you think of Sean Taylor's death? Are you as sad about it as me?

5. Are you as disgusted as me about that whole Baby Grace story? What do you think should be the parents' punishments?

6. When I say that I am an editor, what comes to mind? What assumptions do you make about me or my personality?

Dear TQC,

What's the weirdest food you've ever eaten?

Here in Singapore, most of the food we eat can be considered weird.
For example, cubes of pig's blood, sea cucumbers (not a vegetable, but some slimy underwater sea slug.) And of course, the infamous durian, which smells like feet and cheese and has a custard-like consistency.

1. Do you have an internet routine? 
(For instance, when I get on, I log into myspace, check my messages, then log into lj, head on over to TQC, then check my email, and then my work email. It's usually the same every time).

2. What are some websites I can get into, in order to expand my boring internet routine?

3. I'm at work right now (I work in a music store). Open mic is going on outside. It sounds like it has now turned into a stand-up routine. Someone is talking and the audience is laughing. Should I go out and see what's going on, or stay inside, where it's warm and I have the computer?

4. What is your living situation? Can you post pictures of your house/bedroom? Please?

Dear TQC,

An old friend of mine is moving and we are planning to see each other before he leaves. We both had huuuuge 'things' (aka boners, and my female equivalent) for each other for a very long time, and haven't really seen each other since we stopped being horny for each other.

1. How do you think the day we hang out will go? And how will it end?

2. I'm really hungry, what should I snack on?

ETA: I have a boyfriend and he just got out of a 4 or something year relationship. How much more awkward will this add to our 'date'?

3. What are your initials?

4. Do you watch Grey's Anatomy? If so, what are your thoughts on this season [season 4]?
I watch it & I wish the writers of the show would stop fucking with us. I'm kinda disappointed with this season. I'm tired of the Mer/Der thing but I still root for them to be together.

5. What's the worst band you've ever seen live?

I had a kitchen failure tonight and it's making me sad. :(

Earlier I took some chicken breasts and threw them in a glass dish in my oven with some (thawed) frozen spinach and some rice I'd cooked with chicken stock. I seasoned the chicken and threw in some garlic and baked it at 350 until it looked done.

It SMELLS good, like, garlic-y chicken-y casserole-y stuff... but it tastes kinda, blah.

WHAT DID I DO WRONG? Can I salvage it? IF SO, HOW?


-eta- THE CHICKEN IS OK ON ITS OWN, should I just toss the rice? :(
