Do you like answering questions about sex (in general) in TQC? What about your personal sex life?

Have you ever posted to livejournal while you were having sex? Would you?

[Edit: Are you thinking about how posting while having sex would work right now? Are you now planning on doing it?]

SEX!

what would you do IF you slept with someone and then later found out you were somehow related to that person!?



edit:
Id probably kill myself, or go have sex wit random strangers to forget that it ever happened!!

If you are a minor who has been smoking, and you went to the doctor for a cold/sinus thing, would they be able to tell you've been smoking?

My mom has deemed us too miserable to put up Christmas decorations since my dad left us. I'm not miserable at all actually. Should I put up the Christmas tree tomorrow while she is at work?

1a. Have you or anyone you known had breast implants?
b. Were there complications or did everything go smoothly?
2a. Would you get implants?
b. Why/why not?

1a. Nope
2a. I'm thinking about it
b. I feel very disproportional for my body size/shape and it makes me self conscious. If nature doesn't even things out in the next few years I probably will.

1. The winter is pillaging my skin. I have dry skin all year round, and I put lotion on several times a day, but I still scratch and claw my skin up. What else can I do?

2. What's your favorite trashy, quick meal to make? I make an awesome trashy carbonara with sliced proscuitto.

bear with me

let's say you were given an assignment to change history and the person who creates the most drastic change wins ruler of the universe/a klondike bar/awesome prize of your choosing:

if you were to change the way a certain historical event turned out in order to have the most dramatic impact (negative or positive) on the way we live today, which event would it be and what outcome would you choose to create that impact? (think more "i'd make it so gandhi survived the assassination attempt" than "i'd make it so no one discovered electricity")

and does that make sense?

My friend's birthday is tomorrow. I am making him brownies as a gift. I told this to my best friend (with benefits), and he got jealous. He has said before that he does not like my friend because he is jealous that he gets to see me more than he does (my fwb lives 3,000 miles away at the moment, I see my friend every day at work). Is it wrong for me to make my friend something for his birthday? I do it for all my other friends instead of presents, so I don't see how it is that big of a deal.

What do you think of this situation? Am I in the wrong by baking my friend a present? Should I have not been honest with my friend with benefits?

I don't know, this whole situation is confusing.

1. Do you find it uncomfortable to watch movies that have sex scene with your parents?

2. Is there a better way I could have written that question so that someone couldn't miscontrue it to mean "sex scenes involving your parents"?

3. Oh, do you ever make batter (cookie, brownie, cake, muffin, etc) just so you can eat the batter, with absolutely no intention of even turning on your oven?

4. I just got off work (it's 2:30 AM). I have to finish studying for an exam which could entail several hours of study. I have to leave my house at 7. That means I have about four hours between then and now. Should I spend the whole time studying, take the test and then go to sleep? Or should I study and sleep for a few hours? Sleep for an hour? What would you do?

3. Is reality television the kiss of death for couples with even the tiniest amount of stress in their relationship?

4. Why do people actually enjoy reality television?


On a completely unrelated note,

is it cheesey to give "cupons" as christmas gifts?

My mom wanted picture frames to reframe some photos / art as we just moved to a new place and she's redecorating everything and thought the frames could use some updating. As she hasn't finished decorated I thought it would be best to make out like a slip that says when she's ready I would buy the frames instead of buying them now in case they don't go with the decor she choses.

Of course she could always return the frames I bought them now and she didn't like them

what do you think? should I just go pick out some frames or give the "cupons"?

Is the food you eat traditionally at Thanksgiving different than the food you traditionally eat at Christmas?  Feel free to be offended if you don't celebrate one or either of these holidays.


For my family, no, except there might be some extra food at Christmas given to us as gifts by family and friends.

I was joking around with my father, last time I went to visit my parents. And I told him that for the holidays, I wanted a Porsche. He joked back and said "Ha ha, no way," or similar.

My response:

"How about a hummer?"

I think I hid my absolute self-disgust and embarrassment at uttering such a double entendre to my father very well.

The question:

How would you have reacted, hearing that from a friend? How about from your father/son? How would you have handled it, if you'd had the slip-up, yourself?

Rent-to-own Books?

I was on BigWords.com and they found a website called Chegg that "rents" textbooks out. It says that you pay a flat fee and then at the end of the semester you send it back to the website. The good thing is I can get a $40 book for $17. But you have to return it or you get charged. I guess I can return it... I don't hold onto my books... Here are my questions:

Have you ever used the "Rent" option with textbooks? How'd it work out for you?
Have you ever used Chegg.com for textbooks? How'd it work out for you?

"Quote"

On a scale of 1 to 10, how annoying is improper use of quotation marks?

Example:
You are all cordially invited to my humble abode for some "Christmas Cheer" and "Gift Exchange" before the holidays. It is a "Wine and Cheese" along with some "Christmas Goodies".
Optional: if you want to play "Secret Santa"...please bring a wrapped gift...the tradition continues...
Hope to see you all there! It will be "cozy".


The same girl also sent me an Xmas card in which she wrote:
Have a great time this Xmas with your "husband".

FWIW, she's a high school English teacher too. :$

Ive been sick for a week.
This is a bit tmi, but I feel really mucus-y and I cant seem to cough it up.
I dont want to spend $20 on Mucinex (Does that stuff even work? DO you just spend the whole day coughing shit up?) if I dont have to..
Are there any "home remedies" that you know of to clear mucus from your throat?
Will my cold clear up on its own without doing anything, or do I need to clear this before I will get better?

Hey TQC,

Haven't been on here in a loooong time. I'm assuming there are a shit load of 'what gift should I get' questions but my situation is somewhat unique so I ask you for help.

I am 20 y/o old male college student and working as an intern (but getting paid well) for a mid-sized telecommunications company. Almost all of the work I do is for a certain director (male) and the the two employees who work directly beneath him (one male and one female). Last Friday they gave me an iPod for Christmas which was awesome. Now I want to get something for them but I don't really know what an appropriate gift is for coworkers after receiving the gift they gave me. They are all 28-30 y/o. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks a lot.

Girly questions

1. Where can a size 12 curvy girl go to get jeans that fit in the hips and butt without doing that horrible waist gap thing? It seems that if anything fits in one area, it's either too big or too tight in the other. I'm starting to get desperate for a new pair.

2. On a similar note, where can I find shirts that fit a 30 inch waist with a 36-D bust without being on either extreme of boobtastic or circus-tent figure hiding?

3. How can you tell if a gemstone is synthetic? How can you identify it? I was given a ring years ago that I adore beyond words and wear almost every day. It has a large gem set in silver that changes color from a blue greenish-grey to a deep violent orange-red and usually hovers between grey-violet and a bright purple. I've never been able to tell what exactly it is. I've been told by gemologists that it's amethyst (unlikely), synthetic alexandrite (possible), actual alexandrite (extremely unlikely) and a weird form of fluorite (no clue). Any ideas on how I can figure it out?

4. It seems with holidays and finals, everyone is exhausted. Are you tired and if so, why? What do you do to energize yourself?

A question for you science-types out there...

If I'm looking at the list of ingredients on a drink, what would be there that would tell me if it's caffeinated? Is it actually called out as "caffeine", or is the caffeine in something else? I realized last night that I haven't the faintest idea if something is caffeinated unless it actually says "caffeine-free" on it, or if it's just water and juice or something similar. I've recently discovered that my chronic headache issues are triggered by caffeine (at least, as far as I can tell - I drink tea or soda, bad headache. I go without, no headache.), and so I'm trying to avoid it and still have options besides just water.
Thanks!

1. My SO's mom baked some treats for my parents yesterday. I think their family calls it "idiot cake." I tried googling it, but I didn't find anything so I think that's just what their family calls it. It has a graham cracker bottom, peanut butter and chocolate chips, shredded coconut, and chopped walnuts. They're cut into bars. Do you know the name of this?

So, you're living with somebody who has a few extrememly annoying habits. What do you do to make them less annoying for you?

I moved my Mum in with me a few months ago. She's 62 and a typical old woman. She reads practically the full paper out to me, (When its clear I don't care) talks with her mouth full (makes my skin crawl) and other wee things. I'm not saying 'she' has to change. The exact opposite, I need these things to annoy me a lot less. I wish I couldn't notice them. How can I make myself less irritable?

Thank you so much!

QUCK BACK STORY:
Last Christmas my family and I were eating and this dude knocked on our door, and he wouldn't leave, no matter what I said. I had answered and told him politely that I wasn't interested in what he was "selling", and neither was my family, and that no one else would be nice to him if he made them get up from the table, but he wouldn't leave. So finally I just turned around and shouted, "Dad! Dude's not leaving! What should I do?" My Dad shouted back, "Eff him! Shut the door."

"Sorry," I said, "But I always listen to my Dad."

So my question is: What do you want for dinner tonight?


PS. Yes, we have a "no soliciting" sign on our door, but people always ignore it.
PSS. Yes, it was on Christmas Day, I'm not lying.

Do you or anyone you know have any experience with Clocky? I think it looks amazing...the alarm starts, and the wheels start spinning, so it launches off the nightstand and runs around the room for you to hunt down. I want to get one so bad, but I wanna know if it's worth it or not/how loud etc.

For those of us not blessed with a Clocky, how do you get up in the mornings? How many snoozes do you normally take?

What is your sleep pattern like? What time do you go to bed/get up, and do you take naps?


I don't have any experience, it's why I'm askin' ya'll; I set my Razr 32 minutes early, then press snooze 4 times cause it goes off every 8 minutes; I go to bed really late usually and struggle to get up before noon. I try to avoid naps at all costs because htey make me sleep even later.

Will my workplace get shut down for an extended period of time? If so, will any employees be compensated?

I am not worried for myself, as I would be fine without pay for a while. However, I am worried about my fellow employees who may count on this job to pay the rent and eat. Have any of you gone through the process of reporting a dangerous workplace?

I have a 4x5 Wacom tablet that I use for making shitty arts. When I touch the pen the tablet, everything draws fine. When I pull it away and move it to click on something, it thinks I am still touching the tablet and draws all over my shit. Is my tablet haunted?

I can't draw with any pencil aside from a mechanical one, because other pencils have bubbles/pockets in the graphite that scratch my paper and make a sound that sends me into screaming fits. Do you have any weird tendencies like that?

I have about 70 Christmas cards sitting on my desk at work (there will be more in the next few days). The envelopes are the kind that need to be moistened to seal properly.

I don't want to lick 70 envelopes (yuck!) but I don't have glue or that pre-moistened sponge you can get for this kind of job.

If you're in another city and get mugged and lose all your money and ID, what should you do, assuming you are by yourself? I would go to the police to report it and ask them if it happened, but what would they tell you to do? Do they take care of that stuff, or would I have to get ID elsewhere (assume you're far away and need to get on a plane)?

What if you're in a foreign country and lose your passport along with that stuff? You're pretty screwed I think but I doubt you'd like, just have to stay there forever.

Have you ever had a dream about TQC?


I just dreamt that someone posted a picture of the couch from the Simpsons here, and asked "If you had a couch like this what would you do with it?" My answer was "sit on it and watch TV"

(Or did this really happen and I'm going crazy....?)

If you could customize a datacollection question to make one that you could actually answer, what would the parameters and the question be? Make them as specific and silly as you like, feel free to answer your own question, and feel free to answer each other's questions if you fit their description too!


For example, I could answer a datacollection question that asked:
To all feminists who hate themselves for reading ohnotheydidnt but do it anyway, and who say y'all but don't have a Southern accent, what flavor ice cream would you love to be eating right now?
(Coffee.)

 Where do you buy your jeans from?  I usually go to The Gap because I really dislike designs on the pockets and stuff like that.  Old Navy Jeans are ALL too big for me.  Where else should I look for just plain jeans?

 Have you thought of a resolution for the new year yet?  I'm thinking of giving up swearing!

If you're the kind of person that gets "I saw someone that looked just like you!" a lot, have you ever seen someone you actually considered similar in appearance?

People always say that to me. It bugs me to no end for that exact reason.

Have you ever been to this website? EDIT: Apparently it is attached to the Dateline show where they try to catch potential sex predators by posing as underage girls.

'Growing up' on the internet and being in chat rooms, did creepy guys ever try to proposition you for sex or other indecent activities?

So the rules say that posting twice within ten posts is too often. I looked for my last post to count and I can't see it. It shows up when I click the link from the comments in my email, but I don't  see it on the TQC page. So where is it?


And the reason I needed to ask another question so soon:
When writing a business letter, what do you do if you don't have a name for the place you're sending it to? The ad in the newspaper just had PO 1234, City, ST, Zip. I know to address it 'Dear Sir or Madam:', but on the envelope and on the little recipient address above the salutation, I have no clue.

I searched google, but I didn't find anything other than "Sir or Madam is impersonal" *rolls eyes* So, anyone have a clue?

EDIT:
Okay, I only went back two pages, so thanks.


I know to put 'Dear Sir or Madam' in the salutation. I want to know what to put on the envelope and in the recipient header in the letter.
Thank you.

EDIT two: Just to make it a bit more clear, it is a letter replying to a job ad in the newspaper. There was no given name or company, just a PO Box to send the resume and cover letter to.

Santa just drove down my street!

Every year the fire department in my town decorates the biggest fire truck with as many lights as they can, then stick a fat ole fireman in a santa su---I mean, Santa gets on top of the truck in a big armchair.  They drive through all the back streets blaring Christmas music, with santa waving and hottie firepeople passing out candy canes and milkbones for your dogs & tips for not lighting your house on fire this holiday season.  Everyone comes out of their house and waves.

Does your town do anything like this?

What is something that would make it impossible for you to stop smiling?  Like, a baby's first step or a teddy bear being born?  Your so's laugh?

I can't wipe this stupid grin off my face.  Damn you santa!

Respect Her Gangsta

Poo long didn't read ?s

A friend of mine recently went on a blind date set up through a mutual friend of the two parties. At the end of his date, she offered some coffee and a night-cap after one of the best dates he's been on in quite some time.

He tells me things got hot and heavy, but in order for her to get enjoyment out of it, she wanted to have him defecate on her chest before closing the deal. He says that he ran away quickly and lost her number.

Two questions:

1) If you were on the best date you've ever been on in a long time with someone you found to be extremely attractive and desired sexually, would you shit on them if they asked you to?

2) What would you have done if you were in this situation?

3) Would you be mad at the person who set the date

It's 8:29 pm. I can't drive. We have no dryer in my house. We did laundry today, so now *all* my clothes (wearable, winter sensible clothes) are wet in trashbag. They were supposed to be taken to the laundromat by my wretched mother. She refused, bitched, wah-wah. She's now asleep. The clothes are still wet, unwearable, ect.

TQC, do you know any EMERGENCY DRYING TECHNIQUES? Or alksjfalk something. I don't know. T_____T


eta: They are now hanging up all over the house. :| I will probably be blow drying my jeans in the near future.
