lies and trusts

 If person A violates the privacy of person B, by doing something like reading B's journal. but in the process of said violation finds out that person B has blatantly lied about something important, is person A allowed to confront them with the information? Or does person A have no right to get mad since they found out the info in a way that might be upsetting to the lying person? 

If you thought you were likely to find out something about your mate that might break up the relationship (whether because of the act  itself or because they had lied to you about it), would you still make the effort to find out the unpleasant truth or prefer to stay blissfully ignorant?

When I type something into the bar at the top of firefox and press enter, it won't take me to the site. It wont do anything, in fact.

Why is Firefox doing this? How can I fix it?

Have you ever started something with someone who was still in love with their ex?
Please, tell me stories. Either how wonderful it turned out , or that it's a completely disasterous idea and I need to let go.

Story: They signed a lease together with friends while they were still together, broke up last August/September and he's living there until the lease is up, therefore making it damn near impossible to move on being that they see eachother all the time. He blames himself for the demise of the relationship. She wants nothing to do with him and he doesn't want to talk to her most of the time either. He made every effort to start things up with me and now goes back and forth between being depressed about his ex and being depressed about me, talking about how he's "undeserving of another opportunity to be loved or to love" and doesn't feel he has any relationship potential left in him.

Emo emo boy.
But i care about that stupid emo boy and it hurts =\

So, please, give me advice?

Have any of you ever used Rosetta Stone? I know of people who use it, but I'm not insanely familiar with myself, outside of having used a free version in high school when I was home schooled to learn Spanish (which I still don't speak a lick of.)

6 years ago, when I was in public high school, I took Japanese and loved it. The home schooling system we used didn't offer Japanese and I had to abandon it after almost two years of commitment. I'd love to pick it up again, and this seems like the most convenient way to do so. But how effective will it be?

When were you last you misunderstood someone? Did you realize you misunderstood them, or do you swear that they gave the wrong information?

apparently my friend who gives me a ride to school in the morning said she didn't have her class on Monday, and I thought she said Friday. In result, I slept until 7 and she called saying she was outside my house. I swear she said friday. it's all her fault if I don't get to school today.

Hypothetical situation...

You've been having problems with a wisdom tooth and because of other health issues and various Dentists and Doctors concerns haven't been able to get it seen to for over a year. Finally those issues get sorted and you have an appointment to get it fixed.
Four days before the appointment you start to feel a cold coming on, you know that if you can't breath through your nose they won't do it and you'll have to wait again. You're also going overseas in just over a month.

Question: Would you take the day off to try to get better even though you could probably manage a day at work, but would probably feel sicker at the end of the day?

My answer: I'm taking the day off. Hot tea, cold and flu tablets and resting should see me feeling well enough for the appointment. I hope.

Good morning TQC!! You guys are great. Has anyone ever told you that? (sure, that will count as a question for you to answer if you want)

I'm really in the mood for some tea this morning. Which flavor should I go with:

Ginger peach green tea


Double spice chai black tea?

Does black tea have more caffeine than green tea? I could use a little boost this morning. It's been a rough one.

I've decided to go with chai because of the caffeine boost. It's brewing right now and it smells wonderful!

Thanks!! And have a great Friday!

for the bakers again:

Ive been baking vegan cupcakes for my nephew and am having a bit of a problem.

I bought some concentrated dye for the cupcakes. I tried blue. mixed it into the batter and it looked great. However, after I bring them out... they just dont look nice at all. The truness of the blue color fades away and looks faded, brown on the bottom and not a pretty kind of blue at all. Its almost green :*( The same happened with the red.

Am I doing something wrong? Any advice? i may just make plain white and chocolate cupcakes and stick to pretty frosting.

Any help is very appreciated!!

What would you do if you/your partner gave birth to a child that was intersexed (hermaphrodite). Would you have the child undergo genital surgery and assign a sex as soon as possible? Would you wait and base the gender decision on the child's interests and such? How old would be old enough for you to accurately assign a sex based on their interests?
What would you tell relatives/friends/other people if you chose not to assign a sex immediately?

If you have missed a class only once before in a term, and are pretty sure you've got whatever horrid bug your roommate had which caused her to have to be helped home and into bed the previous day, would you email the teacher that you would be missing class?

Cause I feel shitty, however I have some work that she wanted done today that isn't finished, so I figured I could take the day and finish it and then email it to her, or just show her the next class. I hate missing class, but I'd hate even more to pass this on to anyone else.

1. My friend and I were debating over this: When does your "early twenties" end and "mid-twenties" begin? When does "late twenties" begin? (Or thirties, forties, etc...)

I say your mid-twenties begins at 24 and ends at 27. She thinks mid-twenties means 25-27. But she turns 24 this month so I think she's just in denial that she's in her mid-twenties!

2. When did you start feeling "old" (if you have, yet)?

When I turned 22, I'm not sure why since it's not really that old.

3. What do you want for your next birthday?

I'm getting a nice vacuum cleaner! :D

4. How old will you be on your next birthday?

Dear TQC,
I often spew fanatical opinions about coworkers in my lj. One of my coworkers knows my user name and probably keeps updated. So far, no one has come to my office to confront me about my frank (and probably hurtful) viewpoint but I suspect that it is only a matter of time before someone does. I am very capable of supporting my perspective and sometimes think that "putting things out on the table" might actually be beneficial (in the long run). However,  I am also quite sure that the confrontation will add to an already fraught environment. 
My question is: Should I create a new journal to avoid the troubles?  OR  Continue to write merrily along?  What would you do?

3. Who do you think is the sexiest politician?

2. I think the politics of sex would be interesting. I don't really want to read about some politician's "OMG sex scandal."

I'm arguing with someone in another community (me? arguing? SAY IT AIN'T SO!). The situation is: someone says they can't work because of their mental health issue.

assuming you and your SO could not have kids, which of the following are you willing to do:

1- Nothing.. no more paying for birth control.. wooo hoooooo

2- donor sperm/her egg/she carries the baby

3- IVF- his sperm/donor egg/she carries the baby

4- IVF- donor sperm/donor egg/surrogate carries the baby

5- IVF- his sperm/her egg/she carries the baby

6- his sperm/her egg/surrogate carrie the baby

7- adoption

keeping in mind IVF is expensive and may not be sucessful, would that prompt you to choose a different method?
are you willing to do fertility drugs to up the chances?
if faced with multiples, (more than 2) would you do a selective reduction to give 1 or 2 babies a better chance at surviving?

So, I just moved in a neighborhood with houses (i used to live in an apartment) and our driveway is 4 cars long in length and 2 car wide. So it's alot of shoveling. I did 1/2 of it and then I asked this neighbor if he wouldn't mind snow-blowing the other half of the driveway. I told him I would pay him and asked him how much would he like. He declined but he seemed irritated that I asked. He had to do someone's else driveway then he would get to mine.

My question is- was it a bad thing that I asked? I mean he was my neighbor... I would do it for him if asked. Next year I am getting a snowblower, we just moved here. And how much should I pay him? I think I should pay him even though he said not to.

The rent on my apartment is going up about 25% this year if I renew my lease. I like where I live and I could afford it if I stay, but at the price I would be paying I might as well get a place of my own. I've got enough money saved up for a down-payment on a place but I'm very iffy about getting into the housing market right now.

If you were me would you,

A) Stay in my current apartment and just take the hit of the 25% rent increase?

B) Move in with a friend that's got an apartment almost exactly like the one I have now but it's all the way on the other side of town?

C) Buy a small house?

D) Buy a good sized condo?

For some reason I have a major problem with this - mostly because of Fox News and its reputation for playing fast and loose with the truth in politics. And I really feel like Fox is doing sort of a bait and switch here - using Super Bowl coverage and its built-in audience as a way to advance its neo-conservative, biased agenda. Or am I totally overreacting here?

See this bike above?

I am considering buying it with my refund. I need something to get to and from work (less than a mile away) and to and from shopping at local places and such.

My only question is; should I?

The items description says something about "kids" but then the weight limit is 220 lbs, *looks at self*, am 25 yrs old and not anywhere close to that. It's only 200 bucks, and considering it's the cutest one I've been able to find that isn't over a grand, am srsly tempted.

Also, would I have to part it in the parking lot (plz to be keeping in mind that I live in an area with loads of stupid ppl/methers/ijits) or do you think that they would allow me to park it inside the cart bay doors for my own paranoia's sake?

If not this one, does you have recommendations for one that I should be looking into?

The only thing i wish it had, is a windshield. D: but am supposing I can't have it all *le sigh*

Also, it snowed a bucket load here last night. One co-worker called off  "sick", her mother, whom she lives with, called off for "weather"; the thing is, they live down the street from the lady that gives me a ride work, and we made it in FINE. This morning, just as I was getting ready to leave, I saw the younger ones boyfriend buying some stuff... I call bull shit. Should I tell management? Should I just never let her live it down? Or should i just kind of casually mention it to one of the blabber mouths at work and let them do the job for me. *it should be noted that these two; at least to the people they work with, for doing things like that. and the roads really weren't all that bad!*

This question is geared toward females..

Obviously the answer is going to depend on what type of area you live in, but:

1. Are you cautious when going places by yourself at night?
2. Do you take any extra precautionary measures when you do go out by yourself? (ie: bring mace, taser, knife, gun, or other pain-inflicter of choice)
3. Why or why not?

This is a question concerning the upcoming overly-pink holiday of Valentine's Day, so if you find that reprehensible then please skip my question. I am disdainfully aware that there will probably be a flood of these soon.

1. What is something my boyfriend and I can do on the 14th that would in no way be traditionally romantic or stimulate the Valentine-related economy? The idea is to do something fun without buying in to what the holiday is supposed to entail. I've never "celebrated" this thing before and don't have so many ideas. Things we've thought of so far include going to see a gory movie, baking cupcakes, or going to a firing range... recommendations?

2. What is the craziest Valentine's Day you've ever had?
Me: Last year I adopted my persona as the Love Fairy, benevolent healer of broken love lives. I dressed up and pelted people with sprinkles. It was completely obnoxious and very enjoyable in a way that's hard to describe. The other years, I've just ignored it outright.

Does walking up and down stairs quickly for like an hour or so count as excercise enough to burn some calories or whatever? It won't stop raining outside and I have no excercise equipment in my flat :(

Anyone have other ideas for excercising that don't involve going outside? I don't have a gym membership.

What's a reasonable amount of weight to lose every week? I've never tried losing weight before and I've no idea how fast or slow I should expect it to go.

New music...PLEASE?!?!?!

I'm bored as ever with the music I have on my ipod and I'm looking for suggestions as what to download. I listen to everything and when I say everything I mean everyhting. I posted this at rq_version3 and they got pissy that I didn't list the bands I like. So here is a list of who I have almost all their cds:
Country: Alabama, Garth Brooks, Blackhawk, Kenny Chesney
Rock: Ozzy, Aerosmith, Metallica, Tom Petty and the Heatbreakers
Not sure what to put their music in a group as:
Paramore, Plain White T's, Wolfmother, Automatic Love Letters, Nirvana, Violent Femmes, The Ramones

If you can think of something for me to add to my ipod drop me a line...


TQC, I am getting a haircut tomorrow. I am pretty lazy, and I haven't had a haircut since May, and as a consequence my hair is LONG.

What should I do with it?

- naturally very straight hair
- it's fine, but there is a lot of it.
- it won't hold curl and doesn't do well with most styling products

Can you make a coherent palindrome with 'Doug' that doesn't use the word ragu? Like my name is Sara, so mine could be 'Haha! rash, oh Sara, hah!' Except maybe it would make more sense. I don't need a sentence just some sort of word combo with Doug. Even if it only works one way (as long as GUOD is in there, basically).

When someone is late/not answering their phone/doesn't show up somewhere ... do you automatically assume the worst?

I swear, every time my boyfriend's late for anything, I assume something horrible has happened to him.

Okay, I totally hate to ask questions about my internet, but I really can't figure out what's going on this. time. I run Firefox, and have Adblock, but I cleared all my blocked images, so I don't think it could be that. So the question is I can't view images 100% of the time. I don't get a red x, but it's just a blank area where there should be an image. A perfect example is my MySpace page, which I am making public just for the purpose of this question. On the "About Me" section I have groups, Favorite Books, Favorite Movies, Favorite Music, and under each of those I have 200x200 pictures of my favorite movies, music and books. I can't see any of these pictures except the YYYs picture under Favorite Music. All the pictures are from the same photobucket account, so why can't I see the rest? What's going on? ):

Poll #1131653 Ridiculous movies: can you name the movie & finish these quotes?

It's a rock monster. It doesn't have motivation.

See, that's your problem, Jason. You were never serious about the craft.
Let's get out of here before one of those things kills Guy.
He doesn't understand. Explain as you would a child.
Never give up, never surrender!
Look around, can you form some sort of rudimentary lathe?

Guy, you have a last name.

It's Smith.
Then what's my last name?
And your Schwartz is as big as mine.
DO I? DO I? For all you know, I'm "Crewman Number Six"! Mommy... mommy...

I mean, my TV Guide interview was six paragraphs about...

my affair with Jason!
MY BOOBS and how they fit into my suit.
repeat[ing] the computer, Fred.

Look! I have ONE JOB on this lousy ship.

Let me do it.
It's to clean the bathrooms.
It's stupid, but I'm GOING TO DO IT.
Would anyone like a drink?

Is there air?

Yes. Oxygen levels at 68%.
No, just toxic gas.
Seems okay

By Grabthar's hammer, by the Sons of Warvan...

you killed my father. Prepare to die.
I'm going to kick your ass.
You shall be avenged.
give me back my cheeseburger.

And the movie is...

Galaxy Quest
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan
STFU. I don't watch *your peoples'* kind of movies. Nerd.
 TQC, I watched this movie again recently and had forgotten how hilarious it is. Will you play a poll game with me?

Another tax question...

I'm a little confused by this $300 tax rebate thing...

I just e-filed and nowhere does it mention anything about the rebate. 

Are they just going to surprise me with it when they deposit it in my bank account?

(Yes, I did make at least $3000.)

so. how hypocritical would it be of me to want to convert back to christianity from atheism? i've been seriously contemplating this for a while for a lot of different reasons. in 11th grade i was rly pro-jesus & then in 12th my views flipped. i know it is MY business & all, but i hate being labeled fickle.

alright.. i just got out of the hospital today for the third or fourth time because of these things and I'm tried of the IVs, shots, vomiting, and pain. Yes, glamorous. I've tried imitrex, but that doesn't work. I have to catch the migraine BEFORE it starts. I've tried only one long term treatment for them and that was Nortriptyline. Didn't work at all. I've been diagnosed with "Cluster Headaches", but they aren't regular ones. I have them for long periods of time and they are completely erratic.

My question(s):
For anyone else who suffers the same kinds of migraines or cluster headaches, what do you use as treatment? Something longterm or just when you get an attack? What do you do when you can't get rid of it other than go to the hospital?

This bitch gave me nightmares for years after I watched Pet Semetary.

I watch the movie every now and then and her voice calling out "Raaachel Raaachel" still makes me shiver.

As a child which movie villain gave you pee-the-bed night terrors?
