Am I in the minority with my thoughts? I'm actually curious about this.

Am I in the minority with my thoughts? I'm actually curious about this.
what brand of noise-canceling headphones are THE BEST EVER? what if i can still feel the vibrations from the god damned bass (yes, it is that loud)?
also, this has been going on for the last six months or so, and i still can't figure out who is doing it. when i find out who it is, what do you suggest i do?
What do you think about Hugh?
What are your thoughts on Playmates, in general?
Pictures are optional.
Edit: I can't spell.
2- Are you someone online?
3- Do you care who thinks you are a someone online?
4- Do you care who thinks you're a nobody in the real world?
5- Who are you, anyway?
Can someone try to convince me to get off my lazy ass and clean my room?
1. If the response was generally positive, would you reveal you were the author, or just gloat privately?
2. If the response was generally negative, would you reveal you were the author? Would you pull an Anne Rice, suck it up, or flounce?
Do you like it? What do you think? Would you recommend it to others?
If u don't have a kindle, do you want one? why?
How did you feel when you woke up?
Edit: Do you also have any conversations/quotes you want to post in this community? I saw some people in here posting quotes, and thought maybe this would be cool http://community.livejournal.com/it_was_said
I went on to write how I'm smart but stupid at the same time, shy yet outgoing, etc. Will you help me finish the first paragraph? Please?
This is what I have so far:
"I am a walking contradiction. I am a living, breathing inconsistency."
My family and I tried out a new "fancy" Irish restaurant this weekend, that I've read has a excellent reputation. Unfortunately it was the worst corned beef we ever tried. We informed the waiter but he only apologized. He didn't offer a discount, free dessert, or anything. I hate to complain and I've never written a complaint letter before.
Do you think it is fair that a bigger busted woman should have to pay more for the exact same bra than someone that is only an A cup?
I don't think it would be fair. Can't really help much what size your boobs are unless you have implants or something.
Do you get motion sickness?
I am a nervous person, but tend to hide it well. But when it comes to traveling, I'm as nervous as you can be without having a heart attack (so I just get nauseous instead! yay).
I also get motion sickness on the train and in cars. It seemed to develop over the year, because I used to have no trouble with it. Now that I take the train everyday to school and drive, I have it. Awesome.
Mine: Toasted plain bagel (with every combination), and: cream cheese/red onions, cream cheese/lox (with or without onion), or mayo/American cheese/bologna (if I'm in a really weird mood).
When's the last time you showered?
Are you scared of throwing up?
2) How old are you?
3) How young is too young to start using that stuff?
4) Any suggestions for good products?
1) Not yet.
3) I'm thinking prevention is the best medicine, and I turn 25 soon, so maybe it's time to start! Seems a little early though...
Where did you go?

Which animal would you eat if it was offered to you (at some expensive exotic restaurant)?
This morning on the radio they were talking about things our parents passed down to us (mainly ideas/tastes/phrases) that we would pass down to our children. Things like "Chevy's are the best" or "It's better to have it and not need it than it is to need it and not have it".
2. So...what are some things your parents passed down to you that you will pass down to the next generation?
3. What are things your parents passed down to you that you will definitely not pass down?
what about your friends?

why is that in southern california, when we get a few inches of rain, it's automatically called something like 'storm watch 2008'?!
would you suck the guy on the left off?
1: Have you ever throw anything in anger?

ETA: Besides the obvious get lots of rest and drink lots of fluids
Nevermind, I'm going to the doctor right now :(
ETA: Turns out I have bronchitis and an ear infection! Yay!
What was your worst doctor office/emergency room experience?
how much was it?
did you pay cash or charge it?
excluding any real estate or basic automobiles or furniture SETS. I'm talking about ONE SINGLE ITEM. and i dont think i want to include new floors or cabinets... something that when you move, you'll take it with you.

4. Worst thing to happen?

I own two ragdoll kittens. They're 6 months old and adorable, but they REFUSE to bury their poo. These two cats have the smelliest poo EVAR. I was under the impression that all cats buried their poo - every other cat that I've had has done it.
How do I train these two to bury their damn poo, before I decide they have to live in the garage?
I do the latter. I'm a lazy mofo like that.
(you can only choose one)
Why that one?
Im sad I no longer have Show time, because L Word is back.
Is there a place online I can watch L Word episodes?
Other than Youtube.
I keep getting this email sent back to me when I try to email a few of my friends:
Due to an internal mail system error, your post entitled " individual email

My question is: WTF?! or more clearly, is this a problem from MY end or from THEIR end? AOL doesn't have answers for me because I dont have a paid account with them.
edit: After a quick Google, I just found out Interac is primarily Canadian. So, if you don't know what it is, I guess you say "debit."
2. Someone askes you for ID, and instead of saying "May I see your ID, please?" They say, "May I see your drivers' license, please?" Do you get all screwed up about it and wonder why they said drivers' license and not ID? If you don't drive, do you just say something like, "I don't have a drivers' license but I have my (insert proper ID here)." Or would you just not care at all?
3. Tonight I am making tacos for dinner. Well, not really, but the Old El Paso taco dinner kit. I have cheese, green peppers, lettuce, tomato, salsa, sour cream and hamburger. Am I forgetting anything to dress the taco with? Do you prefer hard or soft shell tacos?
4. During nice weather, do you often camp, hike, dirt bike or quad in rural areas? Does camping count if it is in a campground with amenities?
I had a dream last night that I was married to Adam Sandler and we were so happy, and riding scooters down the street in my old hometown, when I woke up I thought, I MUST CONTACT HIM SOMEHOW!!
I feel a little sad:( Strange eh?

My dad is giving us a honeymoon to anywhere in the world...
Where would you go?
It's gonna be so hard for me to decide...
edit: I'm sorry I said "me" instead of "us" but it was just a slip... Of course he has a say, I'm just the one doing the research, narrowing it down!
edit again: Or I'm just selfish and want to go where I want to go cause I'm a princess, lol, or something... ugh. =]
I usually get this feeling when something bad is about to happen.
What's the bad thing that's going to happen, TQC?
Non-serious answers are welcome, of course
Did they ever respond back?
Do you think it is appropriate for the company to visit your home without notifying you?
I wrote a letter to dominos pizza about two different issues I had with orders. Then about three weeks later I had a pizza man at my door wanting to talk to me about the letter. Wasn’t this a little invasive? I acted like I wasn’t the person that wrote the letter. I felt weird having a pizza man knocking at my door with no pizza. O_o
Should I write another letter expressing this issue about pizza men dropping by with no pizza?
I think the pizza guy was going to kill me for complaining.
I'm going to be taking a trip from Boston, MA to Atlanta, GA and then from Atlanta to Del Rio, TX. I've checked all the flight sites and the cheapest it would possibly be is $650 altogether. It would be about $468 if I flew to Atlanta, took a Greyhound from Atlanta to Del Rio and flew back to Boston.
The thing is, the trip would be 1day and 4 hours long from Atlanta to Del Rio. I've only been on a Greyhound from Boston to NYC so it was only about 5 hours long. It wasn't that bad, but I wanted to know about other peoples' experiences.
Have you ever taken a Greyhound for that long? How did it go?
Do you think the savings would be worth it or should I just suck it up and get a plane ticket?
Thanks in advance :)
2)Is the internet half crazy or half sane? Or 100% nuttier than a squirrel turd?
what about 5 years ago?
would you sell your soul for anything?
when in your life did you hit the roughest spot?
TQC, where in the hell did my tripod go? did it abandon me? D:
Are they cranking an engine?
Someone being grouchy?
In the middle of a million definitions that essentially mean the above in http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/crank, i found this: of, pertaining to, or by an unbalanced or overzealous person: a crank phone call; crank mail.
So is there a difference between a Prank Call and a Crank Call? If you are unbalanced, it is a Crank call?
1) do you say prank or crank?
2) do you use both? why or why not?
3) do you use crank only if you are feeling unbalanced or overzealous?
What songs are stuck in your head right now?
What songs do you know all the words to?
What are your favorite bands?
I'm home sick from school and so bored. I need music (:
If so, who was it with? Where was it to? Did you have a blast, or was it disastrous? Was it spur-of-the-moment, or planned out far in advance? Details.
this got me thinking--do people actually go to coffee houses to meet other people? i don't drink coffee so im seldom at a coffee house, but seems to me that when i do go, most people have their noses buried in their laptops. do they secretly desire someone to come talk to them? or is the "meeting someone at a coffee house" thing a hollywood fiction? have you ever randomly met someone at a coffee house?
Even if you "don't like candy."
Pick the one you can most tolerate/used to enjoy.
Also, aim anyone? I'm bored as hell.
aim: born from a swan
if that isn't your cup of tea, then what's the best themed party you've ever been to?
The video started out with a shot of (we think) Mt. Fuji, and then the band started singing in an area that looked like a Japanese Time Square with all the signs reaching into the sky. The band itself was kind of scrappy looking. All the guy except the singer had long hair and lots of facial hair. The singer had a little beard thing, and dark hair, and dark eyes. At one point, the singer is kind of posing with a Japanese Elvis-type impersonator who is wearing a red outfit. The music was kind of emo/indie, like the Strokes. We thought it was OK GO, but it wasn't.
The only part of the song I can think of right now, was something like "maybe it'll be alright." But I really don't remember now.
I know it's a long shot. Anyone have any ideas?
Do they generally feature strangers or people you know?
Are there circumstances where you're more likely to have one?
Are they memorable?
What kind of books do you really like (ie concerning plot, style, first person...)? Examples?
Does it bother you if a friend/s/o likes a book or movie that you really hated?
Do you have any double standards?
How have you acted hypocritically lately?
Other than Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood? :P
Would you have a knowledge base for your personal LJ?
You'd never have to ask the same question again!

Should I throw myself, or the computer, out the window? Should I be constructing a Steve Jobs voodoo doll?
Why do I always hear great things about Apple, but haven't had a super good experience since the IIe? (My iPod only half counts as a good experience.) Doesn't anyone else feel ambivalent (or worse) towards Apple?!
Did you like it?
Would you go back?
We are going in February and have heard 2 people that didn't care for it, they were older with their kids and 1 person really liked it.
Any feedback helps :)
2a. I'm also going to NYC in April and staying in the American Youth Hostel. Has anyone stayed there? Is it as creepy as I'm making it out to be in my head?
2b. What do I need to see/do while in NYC? My husband and our nerdy friends will be at a comic book convention, so I'll be alone most of the time. Would it be too dorky to check out all of the museums and things like that?
what do you use?
ever used a diet pill that worked? which was it?
whats the last cd you bought that was exceptionally good?
(I personally think it sounds good in theory, not in practice)
Would you use it??
Which is better?
To settle a debate :P
My in-laws said that it is because all their children, including my hubby, needed glasses. My father in law is the only person who wears glasses.
I don't think it is, but I could be wrong.
what was your breaking point?
Today, here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, the temperature was -30*C (-22*F) but with windchill, it was closer to -50*C (-58*F). I don't think this is the coldest I've ever lived through, but it was close.
2. Where you live/where you have lived, what does it take, weather-wise, for things to start shutting down? Like schools and public transit and so on?
Everything was business as usual here today. I'm a teacher, and the school was open and most of the students were there. Growing up in a smaller town than Calgary, we usually had one or two snow days per year due to cold, but that was because lots of our students were bussed in from the surrounding countryside.
(I hate the word vajay-jay. My favourite is bajingo.)
What MP3 Player, other than the iPod, would you recommend to me? Right now I'm looking at the Zune and Zen, but if you know of other really good ones, I'd like to hear them.
EDIT: Nevermind, I decided on Zen. Thanks a lot guys!
Why, oh why, am I still sick, after antibiotics and tons of meds, and even Sleepytime tea with honey?
How did you entertain yourself?
you get to cast the leads (Scarlett Ohara and Rhett Butler)
who gets the part?
PS Yes I was listening to NPR .. no it wasn't about a remake of the flick
just got me to thinking
(Is it a lame person and/or someone who creates multiple lj identities?)
What's your take on online-dating?
Edit: Disregard first question!
So I think I'm going to the used video games store tonight to pick myself up a used XBox. Any ideas what games I should get? I like sports (except racing), 1st person shooters, and adventure games with puzzles (for example, I'm a huge Zelda fan).
-And for any video game fans, what's your favorite game (or top 5 games, if you want) of all time? For any system.
i bought a shirt there recently and it's already falling apart.
yes, yes, i know, that's what i get for an $8 shirt, but still.
i wore it once and it's almost inappropriate for public wear now.
this is her site, but it doesn't have any contact information other than to sign up for the mailing list, which i don't want to do.
also girls who like to fool around with men.

Any story to go with it? There is just a lot of expression with mine, I guess. I like Keira Knightley, though I never saw the movie this icon was made from.
EDIT: LOL! my inbox has never been so full of notices!
I work out with ten pound weights 3x a weeks, work an active job where I move/walk for six hour shifts five days a week, and power walk when I can.
I know there are mathmatical equations that would tell me, but I was just wanting your opinion and/or a round about answer.
Of course, this had to be on facebook.
"...I even write your annecials on my arm dude.. its bad ass!"
It took me a while but apparently annecials=initials
I just heard of this phenomena like 2 minutes ago... I'm confused, and slightly intrigued.
Pros: I love them. The show is only 2 hours away. It would be something fun to do, and the husband and I haven't had much of that lately. I'd like to see them in concert again. Tickets are reasonably cheap. This is the closest to where I live that they've played in at least a few years, I think.
Cons: The show is 2 hours away, and we are in Pennsylvania, and it's February. It might snow a shit-ton, and that will be no fun to drive in. I don't know anyone in the town that they're playing in. Husband and I will have to get up at 6:30 for work the next day after driving home all night. The only other time I saw them in concert was last March at the Fillmore in San Francisco, and the energy of that show will probably be way better than the one that they're going to do in Kent State in February. I'm worried that it will not be any fun. The show is at a university, which probably means no booze at the venue (not that I'm an alcoholic, but I do like to have a drink or two at a show) not to mention the drive home that neither of us wants to be smashed for.
halp me, intarnetz?
So I ask you, my lovely TQC-ers:
Given the choice, would you rather have Bush elected to four more years as president, or lose one million dollars (or whatever currency your country uses, seeing as this could be a touch choice for people other than Americans)?
What do you like better - yahoo mail or gmail? If you don't like either of those, which email do you use, and why do you like it?
I ask because I just switched from yahoo to gmail, and gmail confuses and annoys me.
Did you like them?
Which class(es) did you take online?
In what ways?
I go through times of bad anxiety/stress/depression and hardly anything sounds good. Ive been living off oatmeal (homemade with quick oats) and chicken tenders kids meals from burger king. :/
I just found out yesterday that the french revolution is probably the most interesting thing ever. <--- Any book/movie/film reccommendations are greatly appreciated!
to the males: what do you like the most about being male? what do you dislike the most? what do females have/what can they do that you wish you could, but can't?
2. What would the advice be?
Ever win a really awesome prize?
Is it a swear word? A 'regular' word that's painful to you because of something in your past? Is it even in English?
I'm talking just a single word here, no phrases, but a person's name (i.e. Tom Cruise) would be OK.
Would you consider this person to "have a problem"? Elaborate if you want. I'm curious.
I can't figure out the sizing/can't find the size chart.. how would a women's large translate into a men's sweatshirt?
And lookie here, I actually got my gallbladder taken out 1 week ago.
(I'm so much better now with that stoopid thing gone, I can eat! Woo.)
Okay, so now the post-op instruction sheet said that I can take my bandages off after 48 hours and shower. But I was to leave the white steri-strips on.
So that's what I did.
And I haven't removed the steri-strips yet. It's been 1 week exactly and seriously, these strips are looking funky and nasty. Like REALLY old bandaids? With all the sticky stuff turning black and shit?
(I've been showering and drying and all.)
So should I remove them?
Wait until my follow-up appointment? (It's tomorrow.)
The trouble with waiting is, well, what if I was supposed to remove them and like I go there and the surgeon is all, "What the hell, lady?"
But what if I remove them tonight and I wasn't supposed to?
I don't know why I didn't just call the dude last week.
What to do?
I'd ask my local tattooist but he's currently moving shop at the moment & I'm unable to contact him.
The story is I want 'my brothers keeper' on my back, but it's the motto of the Bra Boys, a very large & well-known surf gang in Australia, especially as they brought out a documentary about themselves last year.
ps. I want this tattoo because it pretty much sums up myself, not because I want to be omg so kewl! Yay gang tattoos!!1
be more specific than "dog" "cat" "bird" etc
anything "exotic"? ie: llama, chinchilla, weird ass reptile thing
what kind of pet have always wanted? (ie: specific dog breed, llama, sheep, chicken, etc)
if you dont have pets, why not?
Like smoking, drinking, punching something.
Mine's pretty stupid but I'd probably get a bunch of nasty comments.
What's your habit?
2. Did you know it was tonight?
3. Do you plan on watching it?
4. If you answered yes to 1, and no to 3, are you ashamed of yourself?
edit: I've been told 4 is worded in an accusatory manner.
This is unintentional.
Edit: Of course I'll eat it, pineapples are delicious and the smell of it makes me drool uncontrollably. I meant so far as preparing it goes - Cooked is not so great, I was thinkin' desserts maybe? :O What do you do with pineapple?
Is there anything that's beneficial other than the alleged short-term stimulation that may come from the spending that remains in the U.S.?

Is anyone else watching this?
Are you trying not to vomit?
What is your drinking game to go with it?
Do you or does someone you know own a pitbull?
2)Do you know any awesome books about culture bound syndromes?
3)dear random lj people, sometimes I get very specific stomach aches centered in just one spot. $200 worth of serious or not?
eta: subjects in tv shows you're obsessed with?
women with large numbers of kids. I like to watch jon and kate, and now I'm watching something about the duggars.
What should I do?
1. What do you think marijuana smells like when it is burned?
2. How can it be 60 degrees one day and the next be 10? (F)
3. Do you like tapioca pudding?
( Collapse )
How do you feel after listening to this for a few minutes?
Mostly computer based stuff, like downloads or programs.
But I would love to hear any other opinions on things not just myself, but everyone should have.
At least access to.
So, will you share?
I'm going to a hockey game tomorrow. If I smuggle in alcohol, will the police dogs they have at the main gates spot me out? I've smuggled alcohol in successfully before...but they never had police dogs before. Why do they have police dogs now???

Serious and non-serious answers welcome.
