I'm not a scientist, I'm just a guy with too much time to think about stuff that oughtn't need to be thought about. So, I need a little help with this theory.

You have a box that's filled with to its entirety with water. I need to give the box some conditions that may not be possible; first, the box is truly airtight; nothing can get out. The box is also somehow unbreakable, for the sake of this experiment. The box also doesn't change shape when it's heated; it doesn't expand in any way.

So, you have this box filled with water. My question concerns what happens when that water is heated.

When something is heated – including water – the particles expand. However, in this unbreakable box, there's no room for them to expand into. There's not even room for them to vaporise into. So, does this expansion process just not happen? Will the energy be passed onto something else, somehow?

I was thinking, maybe the water would just "refuse" to take on the extra energy because it couldn't store it nor use it. Instead, the air around the box will just be heated as if the box wasn't even there.

Ladies and gentlemen!

Like many others, I turn to TQC to make all of my "tough" decisions for me.

In 2 weeks my husband comes home and we have a Marine Corps. function to attend, and I have actually never been to one before. He told me it's a formal occassion, so I will need to dress up, (He will be wearing his dress blues.)

Before I get all big in the tummy area from the baby, I want to look extra-good, especially since in 2 weeks it's our anniversary, and I just want to look extra-awesome for when he comes home.

As far as my dress choices go, I've narrowed it down to three.

My questions:

Which do you prefer?
Are they formal enough?

Edit: In reponse to my "coloring" Unfortunately, I am very pale. I have (newly dyed) dark brown hair, and blue eyes. I can post pictures if it's really necessarry.

Cold lunch!

So I'm making my groceiry list right now, and to save money, I'm thinking of packing lunches.  On my campus, there are no microwaves...oh never mind, I lied.  There's one that's accessible to students on the what-ever floor of some building that I frequent. At any rate, what kinds of foods could I pack for lunch that are quick, easy, and if necessary, can still be eaten cold?

<b>EDIT: NOT SANDWICHES.  I am soooo sick of sandwiches, hahaha.  Sorry!</b>

What is the proper tip for a haircut of $100? Is it like when you eat out and you have to leave 15% - 20%? Because if so DAMN that's going to be expensive.

How do you deal if your friend has a boyfriend who is a douche (verbally abusive, controlling, dented her brand new car and ripped out one of the air vents, etc etc) who she complains about yet doesn't break up with him? How do you not get angry or cope with the anger because you know it's her life and her decisions? She can't go places without consulting him and it's taking a toll on our friendship because I'm tired of hearing her bitch and then seeing her give him chance after chance. I don't want to tell her not to vent to me because I'm her friend and she's a sweetheart.

[Asked again because the other was posted at a bad time.]

What are good software and/or websites to help build a list of music completely from scratch?

I'm willing to pay if the pay system is significantly better than free ones.

Consider the following:
-I don't know the name of much of the music I like.
-I want a decent recommendation system.
-It would be preferable to be able to export the lis to use in other mediums.
-It should make it easy to look up song names, but if not, I can just use CDDB or something else.

Any other helpful features would be gret.

Okay TQC, I hope someone knows what I'm talking about.

A couple years ago I heard about a school/course/class for personal safety that was offered somewhere in Montreal and I haven't heard of it since. I know I found their website at one point, but that was years ago. I'm considering moving to Montreal in the future, and I want to find this website again and look over it.

The guy who runs the business has a trademark class called "The Ripper" (I think...or something like that) that he does in cities across Canada and the US. The classes at this place aren't martial arts, they're the best ways to fight back when attacked (scratching, going for the eyes, etc.) and they're suppose to be quite good. I think kick boxing was also offered here.

Has anyone heard of this place?

Funny kind of a question:

For a minor point in my undergraduate thesis, I'm trying to argue whether or not Sandra Bullock's star image changed, if even slightly, post-Miss Congeniality. Like, before MC, she played a lot of tomboyish characters, and I'm pretty sure she still plays (mostly) the same kind of characters, but I realized I haven't seen many of her post-MC movies, or at least not recently enough to remember the details of her characters.

So my question is basically, do you think Sandra Bullock's characters from Infamous, The Lake House, Crash, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Murder by Numbers, etc., are more "feminine" than her characters from earlier movies, including 28 Days, Forces of Nature, Practical Magic, Hope Floats, Speed 1 & 2, The Net, and While You Were Sleeping? Feel free to describe specific character/plots to me to jog my memory if you'd like.

Thanks everybody, I appreciate it!

My husband and I both have naturally blonde hair, and blue eyes, with very pale skin.
We had decided if our baby was to be a girl, her name would be Ophelia.
If we had a boy, then Victor.

I was telling this to my in law's...
(The incredibly lol-worthy ones from last night...)

And they decided that those two names, sound like they are made for dark haired/dark eyed children.

Uh, I don't really care, we're going to name our kids what we please, but my question is:

1)Do certain names make you think of how someone might look, automatically?
When I think of little blonde haired, blue eyed girls, I think of names Like Autumn, Ellie.

2) What's your name and what are your natural features?
I'm Rachael and my features have been described above.

I recently donated blood and they are doing this thing where you can go online and see your cholesterol levels 3-5 days after you give blood. Well I looked at mine and it said my cholesterol level was 228! WTF mostly! I'm 19, I work out 5 days a week for at least 45 min. and I haven't had soda, chips, etc. in almost 2 years!!!

Why is it always so hard to say goodbye? I've been with my boyfriend for 7 months so far. We're both in college, but go to different schools that are 165 miles apart. The two of us are in such a serious relationship at this point, with talk of living together after I graduate, and marriage in our future. We both knew getting into the relationship that we were going to be apart a lot of the time. It's always so bad when the two of us see each other on a weekend and the weekend ends. Why does it not get any easier?

Edit: We don't see each other every weekend. I really made it sound like we do. We usually see each other once or twice a month if we're lucky. We don't always have the money for the gas to make the drive, and most of our relationship, I haven't had a reliable enough car to know if it would be able to even make it back to my house.

We do keep in touch daily, whether it's IM, phone, or texts. But I guess I just thought the longer we were together, the easier it would be spending gaps apart. But that really doesn't seem to be the case.

sickness question

okay so two nights ago at about this time my friends and i went out to Joe's Crab Shack for dinner. Both my friend and I got crab cake sandwiches. Afterwards we went to a friends house and I'd say that within an hour of leaving the restaurant my friend was in the bathroom throwing up. He went home and threw up some more there... I felt fine. Later his boyfriend told me he'd been feeling sort of queasy earlier in the day and he thought it might be the flu even though he'd previously blamed the crab cakes.

Today I feel sort of achy in my stomach but haven't gotten sick... no one else we were around or went to dinner with has been sick. My friend says he feels a "little bit" better but I guess he's still sick. Everyone in this area who has had the stomach flu (my girlfriend's cousins and brother and best friend) has felt better the next day without fail.

Do you think it is food poisoning or the stomach flu? What is the chance that I wouldn't get food poisoning from eating the same food (albeit off of different plates). If it is either of these things do you think I'm in the clear now or do you think there's a chance that I'll still get sick? I haven't been eating much and have been drinking lots of gingerale... I HATE throwing up. What other things do you recommend (I also took an Airborne yesterday) to prevent me from throwing up?

I just got a really nice set of nonstick pots and pans from my inlaws. I've never really had *nice* cookware that I felt I needed to take care of.

The one thing that it doesn't mention is the proper way to store them. I'm afraid to just stack them. I feel like that would scratch up the surfaces.

So, how would you/do you go about storing pots and pans without scratching them up?

There's a kid outsidemy neighbor's house leaning on his car horn, and he's been honking almost nonstop for ten minutes. He's a smarmy little bastard and does this all the time and I don't like him. Should I go outside and tell him to kindly STFU or should I just throw a brick at the car?

puppy essentials

I'm getting a new puppy in the near future. Besides the basics (food, collar, leash, crate, etc) what items would you recommend me getting to make life easier? I've already had a recommendation for a puppy kong to keep her entertained, and also for a small playpen to put her in when I am cooking or doing stuff around the house.

I am planning on crate training her. Any advice?

What's a way I can stop sneezing? I'm sick and I'm sneezing at least once a minute. There is no way I can get to sleep tonight, let alone go to school in the morning if I'm sneezing this often as as hard as I am. My neighbour actually came over and asked if I was okay and he lives 10 yards away from me because I was sneezing so loud.

Is there a drug or some weird cure to help me?
brand new, blood in my veins


Do your parents (if they're still alive and you're in contact with them, i mean) remember your birthday?
How do they celebrate the occasion? 
Do they still buy you presents for Christmas, and the like?

What about your siblings?

Have you ever had surgery? What for?

Yes, twice. A couple years ago I had to get a plantars wart cut out of my foot. Yeah, that was fun. I couldn't walk for days.

The other time, my 12 year old brother was driving us (my half-sister and I) around in the Collapse ). He made a really sharp turn and then said, "look at the wheels!" and did it again. That made it tip over on top of me (I was on the right). I ended up dislocating my elbow and had to get it popped back in place. I also broke a bone in my foot. They gave me this really awesome drug and I remember laughing a lot. It worked out great because it happened in May, and I got to stay home the rest of the year and got out of taking finals!

TQC, where did I put my Gold Bond itch cream stuff?
It's always right next to my bed and (of course) I clean my room and it vanishes! When i actually need it!

I have a little hive break out, due to stress (and a lot of it) between personal stuff and school starting tomorrow.

What can I use as a substitute for Gold Bond (or other products like that) to make my hives feel a littttttttle better?
hate pimentos

If you had to pick between a prescription drug that really helped your chronic, but not debilitating,  physical pain, or being rather constipated for as long as you took the medicine, which would you choose and why?

ETA: if you choose to take the first drug and then another to clear the constipation, would you be willing to deal with the possible side effects of the laxatives, or would you want to take another pill to clear those?
