given the choice, tqc, would you rather bed one "10", two "7"s, or four "5"s?

does your answer change if the 7s or 5s are simultaneous?
ETA: does your answer change if you will never see the(se) person(s) again after bedding them?

for perspective, are you male or female?

I'm eating a nice big bowl of spicy Indian food, and I just remembered that you shouldn't eat spicy food before going to sleep. But does anyone know why spicy food before bed is bad?

So I found out a friend of mine has been talking about me a lot, especially to my exboyfriend. I can ask him about it and likely get a straight admittance of her doing it (he mentioned it to a friend of mine out of annoyance from her doing it, hence how I know), but should I bother? What's the best way to handle a situation like this? Confront, or just ignore entirely? She's often used me as a cover when doing things she shouldn't be doing, and I don't want to be used like this.

Is there any type of food/drink that a lot of people tend to enjoy, and you don't?

I happen to be a very fussy eater, and one day my co-worker and I were talking about different foods, and he found it insane that I dislike a lot of ... common(?) foods.

I saw this movie about six years ago.. I don't really remember the premise, except there were some teenagers in a high school, holding other (teenagers?) hostage, over something, and towards the end there were a few on the roof and some cop-person sniped out one of the kids who wasn't doing anything and shot him? That's really all I can remember but I was wondering if it sounds familiar to anyone else, it's been bugging the hell out of me.

Party Etiquette

I have a question on etiquette:

New Years Eve, I was at a party. A couple attending the party brought several bottles of champagne. By the time they left the party, there was one bottle left. They kind of just grabbed it out of the fridge before leaving and took it home with them. Now, everyone still at the party said this was rude: you don't bring drinks to a party, and take back whatever is left over home with you. Do you agree, TQC? Was it rude for the couple to take back the champagne they brought?

Could you date someone with any of the following personal traits?

False teeth. Due to some injury when they were younger, they lost all their teeth and now sport some choppers
Tattooed over 75% of their body.
Were once committed to a mental institution for a year. Happened when they were 15, but they swear they're better now
Served time for manslaughter. Once killed a man in the heat of passion with a tire iron. But they're reformed now and could never do that again
Colonoscopy bag
Below-average intelligence. They're fun and cute, but let's face it, he or she's an idiot
Once slept with their sibling when they were 16. He or she realizes it was wrong now, but jokes that the bro or sis was good in bed
Has 3 kids. Never been married
Militant vegan. You have to be at least a vegetarian when you're with them
29 year old virgin
Has slept with over 100 people. Only 2 relationships in their life though
In the witness protection program. The mafia is out looking for him or her, but they'll never find him or her
Body odor. Something to do with diet or hormones, because bathing doesn't really make a huge difference

Wireless router question.

To anyone who knows anything about computers...

I have three computers in my house, one in the basement (which is the access point with the modem and router) and two upstairs. Lately one of the computers upstairs keeps disconnecting from our personal wireless network. The other one is fine, is constantly connected and there have been no problems. I can't figure out what's wrong with the other one. Sometimes it disconnects constantly for a period of time, and other times it's fine for days. It keeps telling me that the access point is too far away from the computer, but that can't be right, considering I have a computer RIGHT next to it that is connected. Plus, this only started happening a couple days ago.

Can anybody help, or have any idea what's going on?

It's driving me nuts and I'm terrible with computers.

Is it appropriate to contact a professor who has moved and is now teaching at a different school to ask them for a graduate school reference? I had multiple classes with them and they did not leave my school on bad terms. I have not had contact with them since graduation but she did mention that she was changing to this other school during the semester. I just don’t want to seem like a total creep emailing her out of the blue when I obviously had to search for her contact information. :/

Do you recognize the small stuff? Would you notice if someone stole your peep hole? Please check to see if your pee hole is still intact. If not talk to your landlord.

I snatched all the peep holes from anyone that moved out (on my floor). New people moved in and somehow never noticed the difference. So I place pencils and other shit in the holes at night. No one notices anything? Are people that dense that they don’t notice obvious things that are right in their face?

btw I don't know why I do this shit. Maybe I am mad that our apartment complex let my apartment get to 110 degrees during the summer. O_o Maybe the online docs can prescribe me something...

I got new ink this morning and tried to put it in the printer. This is the first time I have ever done it, It seemed to be okay but when it prints all I'm getting is smudged black ink over the paper and very very faint cyan.

Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong? Even just a guess to get me started!

In your mind what is better?

Ps3 or xbox 360? i only ask cause they are so darn expensive here and the only games i want are the new gta when released and Ea Skate. i have been with the playstation family for a while now, and i am used to the controls. (my ps1 only died this year after getting it in primary school) however ps3's are more expensive here.

The median range for them is about 500-600 and xbox i think are just about 530 dollars. I have heard that xbox break a lot and it costs you to go online which is lame.

I am thinking playstation at the moment because of the free online service, and im used to the systems. However what has better graphics? what are your experiences?

It seems that every female on the internet who is trying to conceive charts (temperature, length of cycle etc etc). 

Now, I understand the concept behind why you would do this, but I'm curious as to whether the average female does this or is this something that females who seem to be having trouble conceiving do? If there was no medical reason to chart, wouldn't this take away some of the surprise/spontenaity of trying to conceive?

I ask because if I ever decide to have a kid, I couldn't see myself doing this (mostly I'm lazy, but I also because whenever I think of it I imagine some crazed female with blood shot eyes and unruly hair grabbing her partner and going "IMPREGNATE ME NOOOOOOOOOOOW, you fool!", which seems like it would be rather unappealing).

I adopted one female cat, about three years old in June (Tessa). Last month, I adopted another female cat, about a year and three months (Kiera). She had a broken clavicle and needed a permanent home. Of course, I'm a complete softie, so I took her home. At first meeting, Tess and Kiera went right up to each other and sniffed little kitty noses. It was very exciting....until they hissed. They basically ignored each other for the better part of an hour.

Now that they're both here, they can't be in the same room with each other unless they're eating. They're slowly getting better but they still hiss and stare, and Tessa chases Kiera into corners and under furniture. Kiera fights back and comes out of her hiding spots more quickly now, so I know she's becoming more comfortable. So, after all that, my questions are:

Has anyone been in this sort of situation before? What did you do?

Any helpful tips for teaching them to get along?

I'm taking them both to the vet soon and I plan on asking these and more questions, but I thought I'd ask the experts at TQC in the meantime.

Lastly, I was also wondering if you guys know of any good exercises that focus on running. I go to the gym 3 days a week, doing stength training, but if there's any specific exercise(s) that can help with my runs. I've been doing various leg exercises (squats, dead lift, cling, etc...) for 6 months now, and the hill (45-55 degrees, 50 meters long? maybe that's enough to merit a burn regardless of my exercise? heh) outside my house still burns my quads like crazy everytime I run it.

Getting gesso and acrylic paint out of clothes

So we were prepping canvases in art class today, which is at the beginning of the school day, and I didn't realize that I had gesso on my sleeve until my last class. I really like this shirt! It's red, 92% cotton, 6% nylon, 2% lycra, I imagine that'll matter.

I also have another similar shirt, only it's gray, and I got acrylic paint on it a while ago. If you have any tips for that, that'd be great too.

I bought a used camera today and found film in it. I may have ruined it.
Should I take it in to get developed?

I am worried there are illegal things happening in the pictures and I don't want to get arrested.
But at the same time I am really curious.

ETA Okay I am going!! I will
post the results in approximately one hour if
1. I don't go to jail for murderous photos and
2. there is any worthy pictures

ETA2 I took it to Walgreens and they said "sorry we can't process it because it doesn't say it's the type of film our chemicals can process." I am taking it maybe to Wolf Camera on tomorrow or Monday.

ETA3: I called Wolf Camera and they said they only process CF41 films.  I am not sure what that means, but I think it has to do with the chemicals. Also my film canister says "DCF ISO 100-24" and has Japanese characters on it which I cannot read.

Does this happen to you?  What do you say in repsonse?  I usually just ignore it, and the one time I asked one person in particular to stop I got "Omg you take everything so seriously blah blah blah" and he ran away like a diva.  Would saying "Shut the fuck up you jealous fat ass" be acceptable next time?

Part of me is excited, part is scared to death!
I am so tired and sick!!!!! I've had pad thai twice today, my boobs are AWESOME, but my belly is so swollen I can't button my jeans!!!!!
TQC...you are the first to know this.
How should I feel about telling my TQC family about me being preggers before my SO or my family?
*I really want a shot and a big plate of nachos*

No more mojitos.

After a little tourism on google, I discovered that of course, there was no need for female hair removal in the Victorian ages, as the fashion was to cover up.
However, that then means that scenes of a sexual nature in films/tv etc of this period and previously all have hideous inaccuracies in the form of hairy women.
I get that yes, it's natural and that there's always glaring mistakes in films, but isn't that quite a big one to make?
Had you ever thought about this subject before?

1.) My sister is counting calories so she can lose weight.

She has eaten two 100 calorie packs of popcorn.
She has about 300 calories left to eat and the only thing that sounds good to her is popcorn.

Im asking for her: Should she eat more popcorn even though she has already had two? Or should she eat something else, something with more nutritional value?


She has eaten plenty, she just wants to eat enough... she has 300 calories LEFT.

Am I the only person who has spent the majority of this week watching America's Next Top Model on VH1?
Do you wish they would stop playing it so you could stop wasting your life?
Are there any shows you watch reruns of, even if you've seen them (more than once)?

1. Is it raining where you are? (yes)
2. I'm getting my hair cut tomorrow. How short should I get it cut? Pictures would be nice.
3. Has anybody seen Juno? How was it? Is it a good date movie?

My mother just described a movie to me where she can't remember the name. There was a plane that got off course and crashed in the desert, and the people had thought it was the ocean however. For some reason they're ghosts were trapped near the plane, and then some army guys came and as they figure out what happen, each time they find a body, a ghost disappears. She swears it was a black and white. Possibly 1040's era or something.

Does anyone know what movie this is? Or have an idea what she is talking about?

The way she was describing it made it very interesting to me to want to see.9

 it was "Sole Survivor". yay! thanks wildcat_daisy

Can somebody please help me find a list of the various changes in Super Smash Brothers Melee when you change the language setting to Japanese? I know there are differences (a few character names change, certain phrases are different, etc.), but I'd like to see a whole list, if there is one. My Google-fu is failing me.

Got it!

1. Have you ever played Skullmonkeys?

2. I'm applying for a job at the Quiznos/Popeyes/Del Taco joint that's opening up soon. The job application has a question and it says "Which is most important (choose only one) Cleanliness, Service or Food Quality?" How would you answer this question TQC?

3. Are there a lot of jobs in your town?

I am going round a friends house tomorrow night and have been informed that the film of choice is to be 28 weeks later.

Please tell me how scary you think this film is?

I don't do too well with certain horror/scary and for an idea of my wussyness, here is the kind of thing i find scary : Psychological and jumpy. I prefer to see gore and bad things rather than the implication of those things happening if that makes sense

Thanks =)

Oh and also do you like Bananas? i do because they are full of bananery goodness om nom nom

TQC, where can I buy colored tights?

I need winter tights to wear with a few skirts and all I can find in the stores are black and dark brown. But I see people wearing cute tights all the time. Where am I not looking?

(On-line is great, but only if they deliver to/in the UK)

concious decisions vs mental autopilot

I have situations where I conciously think through a decision between A and B. After some thinking - often involving an actual reasoning process not just tuning into my whim of the moment - I deciede A is the right decision. Then when it comes time to act on that decision mere minutes or even seconds later, I do B. I don't mean I second guess myself in these situations (at least not conciously), I just do it the other way. And then I'm left going "WTF? Why did I just do the thing I just conciously decieded not to do?"

It can be anything from where I'm going to lunch, whether I'm turning at the next light, or which card to play next in Magic: The Gathering.

Does that make sense? How do I get myself not to do stupid crap like that?!

You have been selected as part of an elite group of people to go on a mission into space to better understand the planet Jupiter. The team consists of you and three other people--two men and one woman. The woman was brought along because The Space and Robotics Agency was attacked by various women's rights groups, saying they would all protest this expedition if there wasn't at least one woman on board. The Agency, not wanting to stir up any more bad press since their recent catastrophe ("THOUSANDS MURDERED AS ROBOTS KILL A WAL-MART") decided to quickly cover up the situation, brought aboard a woman who specializes in various aspects of space travel.

During the course of the journey, you discover that one man has severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder after realizing that he hasn't left his seat--or even done anything other than flipped one completely harmless switch a number of times that is divisible by three every 3.5 minutes. The other man has a severe case of Germophobia that manifested shortly after the woman attempted to flush the plumbing system out into space, but it backfired and managed to spray all over the fellow--he later spent the next three hours sitting in what would be considered the shower, crying in a language you don't understand. The woman, while not mentally unstable, is attractive--especially considering that, at this point in the mission, you have not seen a woman for the past five months.


Do you:
1 - Have sex with the woman while the two men are being completely neurotic?
2 - Go about, business as usual, attempting to do your best in the mission while everyone is busy washing their hands?
3 - Attempt to conquer space?
4 - Have sex with one of the men? If so, which?
5 - Bend time and space so that you already controlled space?
6 - Do cocaine off of a prostitute?
7 - Force me off of chat because it's obvious that all of my questions are created by them as I have no mind of my own?
8 - Fuck with the guy who has OCD?
9 - Fuck with the guy who has Germophobia?

My boyfriend's computer just got reformatted/wiped, and now he is having audio/video playback issues. Everytime he tries to play a song on itunes, it won't play. It's there, but it won't work. How can he remedy this?

ETA: He is running a windows machine on Windows XP, I believe.

1)  When I'm older, I want to be able to talk about my life by saying: "you name it, I've done it" [except all the bad things like murder, lol]. Anyone else have this attitude?

2) Anyone else like the look of Noel Fielding of "The MIghty Boosh" fame? I've only recently been introduced to the programme and "phrrrrrrrrrrrrrroar" is about all I can say about him!

3) Long hair on men, yay or nay? I absolutely love it...

4) Is Alaska as good as its cracked up to be?

I live under a rock

I got the chance to play DDR and Guitar Hero on New Year's Eve. Now, I want the games so I can play them all the time.

Question is... what video game system do I need to buy in order to play it?
I only have the first Nintendo and the first Playstation. Like, the first ever... from the 80's and 90's. I'm totally outdated.

And, how much do you think I'll have to spend on the new system and game?

What is the strangest/most disgusting mix of foods you have tried or known someone who has tried? (or maybe you like something very peculiar? Tell me please!)

My best friend at school used to love sandwiches with banana. And mayonnaise. Urgh. Also, my Mum apparently used to really enjoy bread and sugar. WTF!?
