Do you have an astigmatism? Or do you know anyone that has one? Could you show me a picture of it? I have one myself but I've never met or known anyone that has one.


edit - Ahh. My apologies everyone, see, I have one myself and its visibly noticeable. I'm reading up on it just now and I didn't realise that it wasn't always visible.

Do you agree with the theory that people who sterilize and antibacterial-ize everything are more likely to get sick than people who live in dirtier (still clean and tidy, just not... super clean) environments?

What about the belief that some people have that if you go to the doctor a lot, you get sick more often?

living preferences

Would you rather live in:

a) a fairly small apartment in a really nice neighborhood


b)a super huge, fancy apartment in a not-so-nice neighborhood?

edit: "not so nice" doesn't mean "shankings on the corner every night," guys. it just means it isn't quite as jovial in the neighborhood option A is in.

As there is one too few seats, me and the oldest from the other family share who gets a lift and who gets the stupidly early bus.

Do you think she should have offered to swap today?

today's playlist.

1. If you had to make a playlist for the day with only 10 songs on it, which 10 songs would you choose for today? You can change your playlist tomorrow, but you have to listen to only your 10 songs all day today.

2. Would you change your playlist tomorrow? All 10 songs or just rotate out 1 or 2 songs per day?

Asking because I've abandoned my ipod and taken to making youtube playlists for convenience and usually keep it around 10 songs and rotate them out one or two at a time out of boredom every few days.

Random questions:

1. for the ladies: if you had to choose from one of the following options, which would you go for?  
a) an upper body you are happy with, but chunkier than you would like tummy/hips/thighs-wise OR
b) small chest, puny arms etc. and ripped abs, thin thighs Please note that I didn't say FAT for option A, just chunky... and the question is meant more aesthetically, not health wise... (but feel free to answer either way- that's just the mind set I was in when I thought the qustion up- I gained a bit in my middle that I want to lose, but I'm LOVING my boobs right now...)

2. For those  of you who play video games:  When you play, do you try to finish as quickly as you can, or do you try to acheive all the goals and complete the game/levels with 100%?  I try to get a perfect score, but my son just runs like hell to get to the end

3. If you watch Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants, who is the bitchiest team?  Who is the best?  I hate the redheads, and I love Hollis & Gina 

4. What's been bugging you lately?  I've been getting the urge to smoke again lately, despite having quit on May 1st last year.  Also, people leaving a "D" off the end of words has made me irrationally angry (ie: he use to be nicer, but now he isn't.  He's suppose to be cool..."

Some of you may recognize this plot from Law & Order: SVU the other night.

A 14-year-old boy rapes 3 girls (ages 10-12) and a boy (age 10) on several separate occasions. He says he did it because he saw it in movies/porn, and that, when they cried and begged him to stop, he kept going because that was what the people in the movies did, and they didn't really mean it. His lawyer says that he did it because the media poisoned his brain and showed him that this is considered normal and acceptable behavior.

Do you think he is guilty, not guilty, or not guilty by reason of insanity or mental defect?
What should his punishment be?
Do you think he should be tried as an adult or a minor?

Little bit of birthday equitte...

How do you politely tell someone you can't afford to eat at the resturant they've picked for their birthday dinner? I love him dearly, but I'm about to go back to school and start living on my own (in the next month), and I really can't afford to spend $50 on a steak dinner (at a place where you actually have to buy the vegetables seperately...), and then go out to the movies, and get him a birthday present. I could just not get his birthday present, but I've already found it and I'd much rather give it to him than eat a steak, if you know what I mean.

Is there a way to get out of this without making a fuss? I can't really skip the dinner, he's only invited four people, and I don't want to make him feel like he ought to change the resturant.

Job-scouting elsewhere

Where's the best place in the USA to look for a good, steady job? And by best, I mean busy. I'm not looking for a bunch of licenses, degrees, and other red tape.

Do state income taxes apply? If so, how much and do you receive yrly refunds like you would w/ federal?

ok real questions this time

1. I'm flying to DC tonight. I haven't flown domestic in a few years, it's always been US to Canada or Canada to US. I just need my driver's license and my boarding pass, right?

2. Do you think it's possible to be obsessed with your SO? I think that my buddy's girlfriend is obsessed with him. He thinks it's just love. Thoughts?

3. Speaking of SOs, have any of you American TQCers married or been engaged to a non-American, who was going to come to the US to be with you? Was it difficult to get them approved and everything, or is it easier than just going on your own?

4. ETA - I bought this new face wash thing that "guaranteed" clearer skin in 24 hours. My skin is getting exponentially WORSE after I've started this. What gives? Does it get worse before it gets better?

tqc, my water heater is leaking. it's 20 years old and it's all rusted out at the bottom. i came home from school to take a shower this morning and there's not tons of water, but we are well beyond the dribbling leak stage. it hasn't flooded the bathroom yet but it was sure trying to. and i've cut the power to it at the breaker. i see the water shutoff on top but mom said to leave it alone in case it's rusted too.

what would have happened if i hadn't come home today, o wise tqc? if it lost too much water could it have overheated and burned down the house?

will you please tell me something to cheer me up? i'm having a really crappy day.

Jumping Jesus, I'm so lame.

My SO and are are celebrating our 21st birthdays on Saturday. Neither of us are experienced drinkers, and we've maybe been to three social events with alcohol the entire time we've been alive. Seriously, we are clueless about drinking basics. So the questions are:

1. I'm expecting around 12 (+/- 3) people to show up to our little event, so what kinds of alcohol do I need to buy, and how much? If it helps, I think everybody will prefer mixed drinks/shots to beer and wine.

EDIT: BYOB is not an option, sadly.

2. Is it usually cheaper to buy the booze at a liquor store or a supermarket? (We are so embarrassingly broke. Money-saving tips are greatly appreciated.)

3. Also, all of our music is either video game soundtracks, foreign, or from internet memes. What do the cool college kids listen to these days?

4. Entertainment? Should we drag out the TV and hook it up to our old PS2/have somebody bring over Guitar Hero and required gear? HALP.

5. And finally, I have 4 cats. What are some tips for making things easier on my allergic friends (besides the obvious vacuuming and dusting)? Opening the windows is not an option--I live about 10 feet from a noisy, busy road.

BONUS!: I'm not terribly worried about food, but if you want to suggest some tasty nibblets that won't make my guests hork on the carpet, I'm always open to recipes.


I came home yesterday to my husband asking if we could get a Bubblegum Rat Snake. Now  I was so disgusted by the name, I had to see this snake in person. This snake is actually very pretty and doesn't look like a shaven pink rat with red eyes. It's a deep pinkish red striped with dark pink eyes. i dunno. i would call it Sunset Mouse Snake if nothing else...

But Still, those three words should not be put together. DISGUSTING!!! 

1. What other words should never be put together to describe something that is actually pretty?
2. Is a rose by any other name still a rose?
3. What would you rename?

For those of you who go to/have gone to a gym, can I ask you a few things?

What are some of the best chain gyms out there?
The worst?
What makes the good ones good, and the bad ones bad?

The YMCA isn't an option here, it's SOLELY a place for a)boarding homeless guys O_o, and b)kids' daycare shit.

I'm thinking of Curves, since I almost joined one before I moved over here, but any other thoughts would be A+. :)

I know that having a typed CV (resume) is preferable for employers. Personally I prefer it as well but right now I have no way of printing at all. My handwriting is neat & tidy so I want to write it out. Do you think employers will think any less of me if my cv is written rather than typed?

I have to buy high school graduation presents for six of my friends but I don't know what to buy. High school graduation is a big thing in here Finland but the problem is that I'm quite short with money so I can use max. 20 euros per present (15 pounds/30 dollars). So, do you have any suggestion on what should I get for them? We always give plates and bowls and such as presents to each other but since graduating high school is so important I want to give them something more personal.

My SO and I always order the same thing when we go into this mom and pop deli to get subs. As a result, we can say "the usual" and they remember what we get. Mine is a modified version of one of their menu subs (to the point I almost think I'm a pain in the ass), so it's even more cool. She always remembers exactly how I want it made.

I always thought that it was just something that only happened in movies/TV shows, and I'm impressed.

Anyone else that familiar with food places or something similar?

So, what's your skincare regimen?

Please include products used and time spent ; )

I ask because I went to a dermatologist this morning, and now I have four creams and lotions I'm supposed to use (some twice a day, some every other day, etc.) and before my daily plan was "use soap when in shower...rinse."

video games live

hi tqc!

i want to buy tickets to see video games live as a surprise for my bf, but i don't know if i should get floor tickets. when i went to see trans-siberian orchestra while floor tickets were amazing, i couldn't see the entire show because i was quite close to the stage but it was an amazing experience nonetheless, and i was wondering if any of you have gone to their shows and if so, where you think the best area to sit would be?

thanks in advance!

for those who don't know, this is video games live: http://www.videogameslive.com/

/edit: i bought some pretty awesome floor seats. we can always see them next time they come around and get a different view.

I'm getting really annoyed with people at my school, and would like to return the favor, so...

...Is there anything that tends to annoy college students? Not disruptive annoying like weird noises and stuff, but personality/style/behavior-related things.

Brownie points for things that would bother hipsters, snobs, or single-minded school-obsessed types, but anything that annoys college students or 18-25 year olds in general would be helpful. XD

Oh, and I don't live in a dorm, so anything relating to that wouldn't help much.

P.S. Would acting like I'm obviously not studying, especially during midterms or finals, make people wonder why I'm not studying, or would they just not notice? I'm not sure if sitting in the halls between classes quietly playing video games while everyone else is going over their notes would make people give me funny looks or if they'd just ignore me.

(I'm fully aware that this is childish. :P I'm just fed up and want to shake people up a little.)

Smelly breath

This is embarassing.

I nearly always have bad breath. I ALWAYS need gum or my breath is horrible. I have no cavities or gum disease, and I've had my teeth cleaned recently.

It seems to get worse when i don't eat for a while and I always have a bad taste in my mouth.

I brush and floss--still no help.

Anyone have a similar issue like this? I'm thinking about bringing it up at my next doctor's visit.

About twenty-twenty five years ago my mum watched a movie that had a particular scene she remembers. A woman was sleeping with her lover when her husband came home. Lover jumps into the closet while wearing a luminous condom. Husband fucks the wife, finds the lover in the closet and they fight. Pretty much all you see is two glowing cocks, one read, one green. She thinks possibly John Ritter was one of the actors but IMDB so far hasn't helped.

Does anyone know what the title of the movie is?

I came across a passage in a book recently which mentioned a couple nationalities from the early 1600's that I've never heard of before.

"...The Spanish Inquisition was a nightmare from which many of us still cannot awaken. And yet we Ponentinis, whose forebears esperienced that great dispossession, are just one group, one set of memories. There are Hollanders, Tedeschis, Levantinis."

So who the heck are Ponentinis, Tedeschis, and Levantinis? I've tried Googleing them and haven't come up with a thing. If it helps, this scene is set in 1609, between a Rabbi and a priest in Venice.

ETA: In the book "Knowledge of Angels" by Jill Paton Walsh, there's a word that's use a number of times. I think it means 'to convert to a religion', but I'm not completely sure of that. I believe it started with 'poly' and it isn't a well known word. What's the word?

Also, are there websites where you can look up the definition of a word, without knowing the word?


How do you know if you pulled a muscle or if you're just sore?

I am trying to decide if I can go to the gym or not. I increased the weight on my calf extensions (I guess by too much...) & today I am limping, it hurts to the touch & I can't straighten my legs completely. It's especially painful to get up after I've been sitting down for a while.

Should I just go to the gym & hope the muscles will loosen up, or will I make things even worse? 

(At the gym I run on the treadmill & do light strength training.)

I will necessitate a second job over the summer to save up for college stuff.  I already work at a movie theatre, where I have to deal with stupid customers all the time.  I went in to this job already hating people, and having poor people skills, but I've gotten mildly better and only stay because I like the job and the people I work with.

So my question is, what is a good job where I wouldn't have to deal with people?  I briefly thought about working at a day care or something, because I like kids, but I know there would be that one crazy mom who would yell at me for exposing her kids to tattoos and piercings or something.

If you see a woman your age, regardless of fashion style&what-not, under 5'2", does it change your opinion of her as opposed to an average height woman (I have no idea what the average height is, but I'm assuming it's around 5'5")? (e.g. would you find her child-like, innocent, naive...?)

Is it only in the U.S. that both parties have to sign the divorce papers for a divorce to go through?

Doesn't that suck? You can be trapped with a horrible partner because they wont sign some damn papers. Can you get out of the marriage somehow if this happens?

1. why must love amazingly sweet and amazing and good and joyous ect. and at the same time be so absolutey horrid?

2. why is it that everyone's (well not everyone, that is an exaggeration but I know a good 10 - 12 people I know both online and off) significant other is being a huge pain in the ass and/or untolerable asshole lately?

3. are you the type that has a set age at which you want to be married at? If so why?

4. do you want to get married or would you rather be single/dating forever?

5. What makes a good wedding present when the couple has been living together for the past three years?

they already have pretty much everything I can think of and they didnt register anywhere so I'm really stumped as to what I could get that wouldn't be lame, like obviously I dont think its that appropriate to just give cash.

So I have this old PC (well, three or four years old?) that no one uses anymore since we all have laptops. anyway it's all slow on the internet and it won't let you log onto anything that requires a username and a password... i'm sure there's some virus-y stuff going on. What can I do to fix this? Bring it to Best Buy or some place similar?

I just got two books from the library today, Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr and Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale, that a friend recommended I read. I have no idea if they'll be any good or not. Which one should I read first?

I can't help but laugh when I see how hard Rachael Ray tries to have a cleavage.
Have any of you noticed this?? *her attempt for cleavage*

I also can't help to gawk at Tori Spellings very, very strange cleavage.
Have any of you noticed her bizarre rack?

And am I the only one that thinks *Lilo* had a boob job? y/n?

I think natural breasts are sexier. Do you?

Bread and other things

Okay I know it's not the most perfect show ever, but does no one other than me and my family enjoy the old Britcom from the 80s, 'Bread'? I think it's so cute! Here's a link to an explanation I made of it once, for those who don't know it which would be most of you.

Also does anyone else think that this is hilarious?

Anyone may answer this time.

Should we or should we not publicly fund fallout shelters for those who HAVE to live near a nuclear contractor? I am esp. interested to hear from NHS advocates. If you're already opposed to the adoption of an NHS, I think I would already understand your reasoning behind opposing it. Basically, you think it won't work in this country. I don't see any reason why it wouldn't.

For those of you who live in a maritime climate like Oregon, do the sts ever freeze on you in the winter? I know it rains there most of the time from Nov. to March.

So I was searching eBay for cheetah plushies, and I found a leopard plush that was listed as a cheetah. So I sent the seller a message telling them that it was a leopard, not a cheetah. I thought that they'd reply with a thank you, since labeling it correctly would help it sell.

Do you do anything entertaining in your sleep? Talk, walk, have sex? Other stuff?

I do something my old roommate used to call "subconscious bear mode." If someone is making noise in my immediate area while I am asleep, I become exceptionally violent in my sleep, thrash around, growl, and may throw objects toward the source of noise. Later, when I actually wake up, I remember nothing.

Can you help? Hollywood Trivia Q

Im not sure when, but definitely between the 80s and 90s, Hollywood played a great trick on people by making up a fake director. Actors would play along and say he was a real pain to work with and a total diva. No one had ever seen him but it was widely believed he was such an egomaniac, he wouldnt come out in public a lot...

Something like that...

During the premier of some movie, the actors and everybody involved revealed the truth that this director who had actually "directed" many movies, was really a made up person, comprised of many great hollywood actors and directors. A great hoax, I feel.

Do you know what I'm talking about
What this "director's" name was
What movies he made

I cannot for the life of me remember who was involved, the fake director's name, or what movie was associated with him.

Thank you everybody!

At my residence, there's a pretty audible hoo-hoo type of noise coming from something/somewhere. It sounds like an owl, but it happens occasionally during the day (much more frequently at night) and since I'm in a considerably urban area with a lot of noisy American students, I have a hard time believing that it actually is an owl.

So TQC, what is making this noise?

PS - It's not the wind.
