So ~*they*~ say money can't buy happiness. Do you agree or disagree? Why?

If you think it can, what would your purchase/do with an unlimited amount of dinero that would make you supremely happy?

I think it totally can, because even if they're fake friendships and shit, you can still pay them enough to fake it.

I'd buy everything I ever wanted. Even on a whim.

Education advice, plz?

First, a bit of context: I'm not yet in college, but planning to begin next fall, and hoping to become an English teacher in Germany (I'm determined to move there one way or another, if at all possible.). My knowledge of the language is very basic right now, but I'm determined to learn.

Would you consider this course a worthy investment? About $500 or $700 is an awful lot, I think, when I'm not even in school (though I have $10,000 saved specifically for education). But if it helps me, maybe it'd be worth it...

For Americans -- or anyone else who has an opinion:

What kind of effect do you think Oprah's backing of Barack Obama will have?

Would Oprah backing your candidate of choice have a positive or negative effect on you?

I ask because Oprah honestly kind of creeps me out, and if she'd gotten behind my candidate, I think I'd be a little turned off. :-/ But I also think she will encourage a legion of followers (many of who might not normally vote) to go out to the voting booths.

car conundrum

So...I have a 1999 Jeep Wrangler with 120,820 miles on it with a constantly replacing-the-exhaust-manifold-leak-issue problem. It's in great shape and has some bells and whistles. A small (size of a playing card) dent in the drivers' side front fender flare. Immaculate interior and no serious mechanical issues.
I'd really like a newer model Wrangler w/o all the tubular exhaust problems (after 2001 they fixed it with a different exhaust system) and perhaps an automatic. My knee is starting to sound like someone is twisting plastic wrap every time I bend it.
I spotted a 2005 dark blue hard top wrangler. It's a 6 cylinder like mine and it is a former postal Jeep. The steering wheel is on the right side. It has a tinted top and the basics' options. The mileage is a skosh high...73,000. I believe it was a rural postal route jeep. But if it was a postal jeep then it would have been taken (mechanically) better care of than a private owner Jeep. I would want to take my wheels and my stereo head unit. That's all. The price is right and it wouldn’t change my payments much (slightly lower).Collapse )

So back in May, we leased a Toyota Corolla.
We picked the Corolla because we don't need much car, and wanted to keep our payments to an absolute minimum.
We don't use our car much, since we live in an urban area.
However, with 2 carseats in the backseat, it's way too tight back there and almost impossible to fit an adult person back there to tend to the newborn on long trips to visit family. (We do this a few times a year.)

Our financial position has improved greatly, so we can afford more car now.

The question:

Can you upgrade your lease?
Like to another car?
Do dealerships do this?

I can call and find out, but wanted to know if anyone has had any experience in this.

1. I am an assistant teacher in the music class at the local elementary school. The kids are anywhere between 5 and 11. I want to get something for them on the last day of school before Christmas break, to say MERRY CHRISTMAS I love you guys. But I can't think of anything more interesting than like, candy canes. What's something fun and/or yummy I can get them that's appropriate for school?

2. If you babysit, do you claim that money when you do your taxes? 

3. Do you have a digital camera, or the regular, old kind where you print the film out?

4. Can you recommend a good camera? I want one that you can print the pictures out, preferably under $200.


ETA: There are about 100 kids total (there are several classes through out the day).. And I mean the camera where you take the film out and drop it off at the grocery store, and they develop it for you. :)

4. Would you rather have to drive 600 miles in the back of a pick-up truck with a bunch of livestock, or in a car with no back of the seat for 1000 miles?

5. Do you have a favorite cup/mug? What's so special about it?

If you're a guy:

- If you're horny, do you masturbate regardless of whether or not you know your girlfriend will be home shortly?
- When you're horny, do you think of wanting to have sex with your girlfriend, or do you think of just "taking care if it" regardless of how that's done (sex, masturbating, whatever is convenient at the time)?
- What makes you horny, or does it just "happen" without anything provoking it?
- When you're masturbating, do you fantasize? If so, it is about your girlfriend or someone else?

If you're a girl:

- Have you ever had a guy not be able to finish because he had just masturbated?
- Did it/would it bother you that he masturbated instead of having sex with you?
- Would you do anything/say anything if you found something like this out?

Is this a stupid reason to transfer to another college early?

I'm currently at a community college and am in my first year. I was planning on transferring after being done with my sophmore year, but I'm considering transferring after this year. The reason is because I want to experience dorm life. But I could probably get better grades at the community college if I stay, which I might need for medical school.

Logging him out without sending emails is not an option here. It will have to be pictures because he is Japanese apparently.

Hey TQC. I'm getting a cat soon -- her foster mom posted on my local lj community, and she seems like an awesome kitty. I live on my own in an apartment at school, and I asked each of my parents' thoughts on me having a pet. My mom thinks it will be nice to have (she had a cat in her younger days), and my dad thinks I will never get laid again (he lived with his parents until he got married and thinks pets are dumb).

"No, not a good idea. You'll be like my lady friends that only talk about their dogs and cats. They go on and on and ooon about them. Their lives revolve around their animals. They use that as a substitute for dating, and you don't need that excuse. It will cushion you."

"Erm... I have too many people friends for that to happen."

"They weren't always that way. They used to be normal. Remember that."

Apparently I am in desperate need of getting a boyfriend! What do you think, guys? Will I become a crazy catlady and be unattractive to all? And since when did I become normal?

I graduate college early on January 8th (yaaaaaaay) of this year with my snappy little BA in poli sci and mideast studies, but that means I have 8 months just to work anywhere really and rack up some cash before grad school. I have open standing opportunities to work at:


-Apple Store

-receptionist for some random Goldman Sachs company

But I wasn't sure if these were optimal, which one of them I should pick, etc. I want to work full time, don't need benefits, and I just want to work like a slave monkey and save up cash for my impending enormous educational loans. I have an awesome resume for both higher end retail and clerical/administrative assistant type work, but absolutely no experience in food service.

So internet, what are some good companies that pay at least markedly more than minimum wage (I make minimum now at my current clerical job and it SUCKS) and are good places for a recent college grad who isn't interested in a career but just wants a steady job for most of a year?

C is for Copyright. Also for Confusing.

I have a piece of music written for my company and I'm trying to ensure no copyrights have expired. I have a copyright registration number and a renewal number but am unable to produce results by searching the Copyright Office's online catalog, as it only searches 1978-present. The LOC site also says that "Before 1978, unpublished works were entitled to protection under common law without the need of registration." The piece of music in question was originated in 1949 and the renewal number is dated 1976. Can I infer that this copyright is safe regardless of our registration, since it originated prior to 1978 anyway?

I'm trying to organize a big fundraiser for a trip our church is taking. The cost is roughly $1500 per person, and there are a lot of people who won't be able to afford all of it, so we're trying to offset the cost for everyone as much as possible.
I'm compiling a list of potential businesses to ask for donations for a big raffle. So far, I have:

local appliance manufacturer
locally-owned restaurants
yarn/craft stores
sporting goods/outdoorsy-hunting store

I also have some people I'd like to ask for individual services, like knitting lessons or handmade quilts.

work ethic curiosity

Say you work for a large corporation and the corporation allows you to telecommute (i.e. work from home) a couple days out of the week, but there are one or more individuals who take advantage of the luxury and are also constantly reminded of work they should have had completed. Instead of reprimanding the employees and telling them their job was at stake, it's decided that now everyone is no longer allowed to work from home.

Do you believe the best or most correct way to handle lazy employees is to cause everyone to suffer so as not to segregate the slackers?

Does it make any sense to you why corporations allegedly have a difficult time dealing with problematic employees, but when the executive staff at the top says it's time to cut labor budgets, the companies never hesitate to put people on the chopping block?

My boss got a divorce back in 1999.  She JUST changed her name back to her maiden name fairly recently.  She gets all bent out of shape when people send her emails or mail with her former married name on it.

1) Does she have the right to be pissed that people still use her married name since she waited, oh, I dont know, 8 years to change her name back?

2)  Have you gone back to a maiden name and been pissed because people still called you by your former married name?

3) Did/would you change your name back to your maiden name if you got divorced?


1) I think not.  Her lazy ass took her time to change it.  I don't think people need to JUMP to please her.  Get over it.
2)  Yes I have and no, I don't get upset.  If people don't know, I kindly correct them but I dont get bent out of shape when I get mail in my former married name.
3)  I have, and I would do it again, though I hope I don't have to.

Relaxation techniques?

Long story short:

I tutor a lady who is from South Korea. She is an art history PhD candidate. I have been working with her since June of this year to prepare her for the test she has to take to get her PhD.

She did the written portion last week. She does the oral part this Thursday.

I told her that I would put together a Word document with various relaxation techniques to use before she has to go in for the oral exam (the part that freaks her out the most).

She CAN pass this test, dammit. She just needs to increase her confidence. English isn't her first language, but she doesn't have a thick accent - I have no problem understanding her. I'd been working with her since June to get over that fear and to build up her self-esteem. I broke her of the habit of saying "um" or "uh" as filler words.

So TQCers - can you recommend some good relaxation techniques for this lady? Know of any good websites?

Thanks in advance. :-)

I've noticed that when I sneeze during class, everyone stays silent/ignores me. But whenever any other person sneezes, at least two people say "Bless you". I don't even care if people say "bless you" to me - I never say it to anyone - but this seems rather odd. Is there some sort of sneezing conspiracy going on? Do I have reason to be paranoid? If someone says "Bless you" to everyone BUT you, does that mean they hate you?

[Also, other than the two or three people who say it every time... no one else ever says it either. But they still say "bless you" to them too. Strange?]

Does anyone here know where I can find an edited, clean version of 'Survive' by Rise Against? Google searching and downloading sites have given me nothing. A friend needs it for a project she's doing for her high school class, but she can't use it unless the profanities are cut out.

Any ideas?

I work with a woman who thinks that there was nothing before Jesus... like nothing.. no Romans, Greeks, Jews, Egyptians, etc. How do people believe that?! Even the bible has things before Jesus right? I am just amazed that people actually have no idea about things.

So I have been using iTunes on my computer to download music. Now I would like an mp3 player for xmas and I know not all mp3 players support iTunes. Obviously, I know iPods will. Is there any other specific mp3 player that will support iTunes??? Or is there some specific "criteria" that I should be looking for under the product info? Thanks

1. Ever had a garden? Or even just a window box or a few pots on a balcony?

2. Ever want to grow a plant and fail miserably while some random other plant you weren't as interested in managed to flourish?

3. Ever grow herbs or veggies and actually eaten them?

For me:

1. Window box, and a collection of pots in my bathroom window.

2. I wanted to keep this tiny pine tree someone had given me at christmas last year, but it didn't thrive and finally just died. Ditto for a tiny rosemary plant I'd rooted from a piece of someone else's. Meanwhile I have two plants of unknown origin that are spazzing out greenly and happily in my bathroom, even if I forget to water them. (If anyone knows how to grow a small tree in a pot, advice plz.)

3. I tried to grow an avocado once, no go. I did find out that parsley is really hardy, though, and had some in my window box last summer. A friend of mine grew peppers in pots on his balcony--I want to try that.

Do you like spicy food? if so, how hot do you like it? Do you have any funny stories about spicy foods? Like the stupid male friends I've got, who've done something like, cutting up chillies, without gloves on, and then going to pee...OUCH.

I just made a Thai green curry (from a bottle! woo, I'm so clever), and it said MILD. But they lied! My lips are burning! I don't eat spicy food often, but since when has mild been HOT? I am a wuss with it, I know, but this is just silly!

What's the worst little snot you ever had to deal with?

This idiot in my class who thinks he's fucking hilarious. Ok...taking my stuff, and hiding it in your backpack is NOT funny. Maybe when we were Just stop. Stop tapping me on the shoulder, stop taking my stuff, and stop showing off your brand new mac. I don't care how fast it is, or how shiny it is, or what effects you have on there. Let me be. Thanks.

What would you name this kitten?

We won't be bringing him home for six weeks, so we have time, but we'd like some ideas, at least.

The pictures are shit, because my camera was dying and all I could do was try and get a picture before turning it off again. Collapse )

Names we've tossed around:

Cyrus, Achilles, Hector, Agamemnon, Troy, Thor, Ajax (all suggested before we met him. He's the goofiest-looking thing you've ever seen. He has an eighthead and two lazy eyes!)
Fletcher (Me Mom's saving it for a Spencer - the cat we just lost - lookalike.)
Reuben - Makes me think of that fat guy from American Idol.
Reggie - I just hate it.
Seamus - Mom doesn't want an Irish name.

Riley (downfall: two good friends with female Rileys.)
Ringo (current frontrunner.)

Any suggestions? Human names only please :)

Signs ?s

1) What are some signs/how do you know when you've spent too much time on the Internet?

2) How would you complete this statement? You know you've spent too much time around thequestionclub when...

3) Besides maybe swear words, do you know how to say anything useful in sign language?

If nonreligious or a religion other than Christianity (please specify which of these you are when answering):
How do you feel about receiving religious Christmas cards from people? Ones that say things like "May God be with you through this Christmas" or have religious icons/pictures on them?

For Christians:
Do you send out religious Christmas cards to those you know aren't of your religion?

For everyone else:
When you lay out large puzzles, do you complete them or lose the pieces and give up?

Hypothetically speaking, and in no way related to any sort of reality...

Not directly from Rescue Dawn, but inspired by it... If you were a POW and if you had the option of signing a document renouncing your country and in general saying how awful it is and how much you hate it and going free, or not signing it and continuing to be a POW and enduring starvation/torture/whatever in a (Vietnam-era) prison camp, would you sign or not?

Playin' hooky

Long story short (see my journal if you want the oogy details), I decided to call in to work (at a day care) tomorrow. (My daughter's sick of the place, too, which is one of the several reasons...)

What should I tell them is the reason for not going in?

Things to keep in mind:

1. School's been canceled for the second day in a row due to bad weather (ice storm).

2. I'm perfectly healthy, as is my daughter.

3. My boss is a dick who would tell me to suck it up and get some Pepto if I called in personally sick. (He has before.) This is why I'm currently looking for a new job.

4. I didn't get the house cleaned this weekend, so that's what I'll probably end up doing tomorrow.

I know this question probably gets asked a lot, but for those who have had their wisdom teeth out:

1. How much did the recovery process hurt?
2. How long did it take you to recover?
3. What are some tips you have to help recovery go faster?
4. I read that you develop nasty breath and stuff after getting them out. Did this happen to you?
5. What's good to eat/drink during the recovery?
6. Any other things you want to let me know?

I'm getting mine out on the 18th. Help!

What is another name for a mounted stuff head of an animal. As in taxidermy. Not a Trophy.

Ach. I posted quickly & without checking.
My cousin thought there was another "official" name beginning with H. I could only think of trophy. We searched and googled but she couldn't find it. I think it's really jut trophy.

Apologies if I sound ignorant, since I am - I've never had a virus on my computer!

I've acquired a Trojan on my poor laptop. My guy says he knows how to get rid of it, but I'll likely lose things like mp3s and Microsoft Works documents.

So, help - Does anyone know if I can get rid of this thing, and salvage my hard drive?

On my way home tonight, I passed an SUV that was parked in the line of traffic right off of an intersection. Its lights were on, exterior and interior, it was running, and there was no one in it. My question is...what the HELL? What possible explanations for this could there be?

EDIT: I feel I must reiterate that it was PARKED IN TRAFFIC, not on the shoulder.

I'm finishing up my Christmas shopping, and I was wondering if anyone knew any other sites like Perpetual Kid?

Also, if you have a birthday on Christmas or the day before or after, how did your parents deal with it? My niece's birthday is the 26th, but this year we're doing her birthday party on the 24th and Christmas gifts on the 25th. She gets the same # of presents as she would if her birthday were say, in June.

How did I get a spam email from my own email address? It's not just the "sender name", but the actual "from" email address.

Edit: The email address in question is Yahoo, I only use the webpage (no mail program set up), and it's not in the sent folder.

Flat irons

Do you use a flat iron? If so, what model? Would you say it's easy or difficult to use? What would you recommend? (I just went to a new hair stylist this weekend and she used one on my hair, and I loved the result. I'd like to be able to do it on my own on a regular basis.)

What's a common food you have never had?

I can't think of any personally, but someone earlier today had never had cottage cheese, and I have a friend who has never had asparagus. I'm sure plenty of people have food allergies that prevent them from eating certain things, but it seems like there are also some people that just don't like to try new things. Oh and I just remembered I have never had artichokes.
