3. How exactly would I go about inserting a Coke can into my vagina, if I wanted to do this?

Okay, for some reason, when ever I go to my main page here on LJ, or search LJ, it displays everything in the Russian version of the site.

Any ideas as to why it does that and how to fix it?

So, I read and hear about people getting infections from a sore or cut all the time, but I've never experienced that. The only infections I've ever had are stuff like UTIs, ear, and sinus infections. I have cuts all the time from my cat or whatever stupid thing I've done lately, but I've never gotten an infection, even without putting on some kind of antibacterial stuff. I just wipe the blood off and leave it.

So, TQC, am I a cyborg because I don't get infections, y/y?

1. I sound like a kid on the phone. Sometimes telemarketers ask to speak to my parents, and I have to yell at old people so they can hear me. D: I heard a lady on the radio saying this is caused by "speaking from the throat, not from the diagphram or the gut." I get what she means by that, but how can I learn to speak from my... gut? Like, taking deep breaths first? I am clueless.

2. Do you like how you sound on the phone and on recordings/etc?

Were there more grammar or spelling errors?
Did you make most/all the corrections suggested by other students or did you think you were right and left it as it is?

So soon im starting a performance based training thing, that will run a couple times a week. I am really looking forward to it and it should be a lot of fun. I may also have rehearsals on other days not specified. March is looking to be fairly jam packed.

So basically in about 2 weeks time things will get really awesome and full. I am not working at the moment.

Should i get a part time job soon or wait until most of my planned  activities die down? I will be busy on unspecified days and would hate to miss something i planned because of work. I suppose the performance thing will look good on a resume too once it is finished.

What is your opinion TQC? should i enjoy everything/work at the same time OR just do everything as planned and go from there?

cheers xo

So, I'm in Japan and I'm watching TV... and this anime came on and I have NO IDEA what it was.

I think it was set in some kind of school... And they were all wearing these weird floaty glasses. And they had like... projected computer screens or some shit, and they were all on the internet or something. There was this weird, squiggly puppy thing that gave a little boy a red ball of light...and then the puppy exploded... There was a Misakosan and a Michikosan, I think...

I've tried googling a bunch of random things hoping it would give me something, because I just have to know wtf I just watched. But no dice...

So here I am...
Anyone have any idea?

EDIT: Ah, I finally found it... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denn%C5%8D_Coil


I'm hungry!

1. What's your favorite kind of cookie? Do you have a recipe?
I use Alton Brown's "chewy" chocolate chip cookies, but I like to mess around with the recipe - more vanilla, adding caramel or mint flavoring, using different kinds of chocolate chips or peanut butter chips. A couple nights ago I made them with Madagascar bourbon vanilla and dark chocolate chunks.

2. Do you like chicken nuggets? What's your favorite thing to dip them in? Do you make your own or do you buy the sauce?
Yes, and I like sweet and sour sauces. Mcdonald's sweet and sour sauce is a guilty pleasure of mine. I also like Thai garlic chili sauce which I buy at an Asian grocery store.

3. What do you eat on your french fries? What about baked potatoes?
Usually Ranch dressing and hot sauce, or barbecue sauce, on french fries, and cheddar cheese and barbecue sauce on baked potatoes.

4. What kind of chicken wings do you like?
Butter and garlic.

5. Any strange condiments that are specific to your area?
There's a fried chicken place near here that bottles and sells their sauce - it's called Sal's Sassy Sauce and it's a spicy honey mustard sauce that is really good.

How much trouble can someone get into for lying on their resume, saying they have a B.A. in something when they don't? (In this case, a degree in Marketing).

In this situation, the person is saying they earned it in a non-English speaking country far away where they have a friend with that same degree, who would give them the appropriate documents and then they'd just photoshop it all to fit their name if needed. Since the documents are in a language foreign to where this person lives (hardly anyone speaks that language), chances are, according to this person, that they'd just take his word for it.

If somehow they find out that he faked it, will he just lose his job or will there be other consequences too?

I'm not asking about whether or not he has the right education to know how to do the job, I'm just wondering what the legal issues are.

A bit tl;dr but I'd like opinions.

Right, TQC. So, I'm in a bit of a pickle. My boyfriend of nearly two years is in a really bad way in the hospital (complications of having cancer). I'm not with him. This is because there's about 700 miles between us. I'm in North Carolina for college and he's back home in Connecticut. I'm really, really worried about him, and haven't been getting updates on his progress like I was when he was diagnosed last year, so I'm going a little nuts. Basically, all I know right now is that he's in the ICU for observation because a procedure to remove fluid from his lungs went awry, but that he's doing okay. I don't know how bad he is exactly (well, he must be doing pretty badly indeed for his mother to have to call me). However, he says that he's doing okay, and although this gives me some comfort, he told me he was doing okay last year when he nearly died on four separate occaisions. I'm debating flying up there for the weekend. He's at Sloan-Kettering, and I technically could procure a direct flight out of Raleigh to JFK or LaGuardia, but therein lies the rub. A) it's most likely going to be very expensive, adding in things like food and incidentals. B) I don't have anywhere to stay other than the hospital, and I don't know what their policies are like in regards to SOs just hanging out. C) I feel like I'd just be getting in the way, but at the same time, I know I'd make him feel better by being there. D) My parents would likely disown me if they found out, but since I control my own debit card statements now, I can pretty much do what I want and not really worry. I do have the money, but I'd have to take it out of my long-term college fund, the stuff that's going to last me through the next two years of college. E) I have classes on Monday that I can't miss, so I'd only be there for about 12 to 14 hours at the most.

TQC, should I stay or should I go? And if I should stay, is there anything I can do to lessen my anxiety about his progress and the situation in general?

UPDATE: I just checked out a whole bunch of flights. Good news: I can get a round trip for about $200, which means I'd need about $300 or so to get through the weekend. Bad news: I'd only be there for about 20 hours, and he'd be sleeping for most of them, since I'd get there around 8 pm tonight and leave late afternoon tomorrow. There's really no point. Thanks anyway, everyone.

Violating my personal TQC rules/I AM SICK OF MY HAIR

I need hair advice! My anxiety really drives me crazy and I literally cannot stand having hair on the back of my neck. Face is cool, I like my side bangs and stuff, but back of neck? No. I'm tired of pageboy haircuts and short bobs; even though my hair is always layered this shit is horrendous after it grows out.

I am down for anything: color, cut, shape, length. Any kind of "drastic" you can throw my way.

So: TQC how in the fuck should I cut my hair?

Do you know anybody who takes caffeine pills regularly?

Do you think it would be weird to switch from two daily cups of coffee to just taking a pill? To me coffee seems so wholesome and a pill seems so skeezy even though logically I know caffeine is just caffeine...

I'm considering it cause I drink my two cups a day but I wasn't pleased with the amount of sugar I've been consuming in my coffee everyday, so I switched to a sugar free sweetener and my tummy wasn't pleased with that either.

I did a quick google search about negative effects of taking a caffeine pill and it only talks about caffeine itself, nothing about pill for specifically, so I'm not sure if it's any more harmful at all. Thoughts?

What is YOUR caffeine source of choice, and why?

International __ Day

Anyone know of any websites that has an extensive list of "special" days and when they occur, for example anything like Family Day to weird days/events like "Free Hug Day" or "Great American Pie Month"? (which is apparently this month.)

Sort-of-related-but-more-random questions: When was the last time you had pie? What kind of pie was it? Was it good? What's the best pie you've ever had? Describe the experience. (And any recipes are surely appreciated!)

i, at the end of october, went through a messy breakup with someone who i was together with for about two years. since then, we have not spoken one word. i've had no contact with her. recently, i've wondered how she's been doing, and generally miss talking to her on a daily basis.

apparently, she's taken all of this really awfully. to explain, we were together, and then did this weirdo best friends/still sleeping together/"allowed" to be interested in other people even though we both know that the other would never follow through with it limbo. during that time, she had encouraged me to move on, and try to be interested in other people.

however, when i did that, she FLIPPED OUT. well, i think i would have done the exact same thing. she's apparently very upset and angry and bitter about it all, and i miss her being a person in my life. i have no desire (at this very moment in my life) to be romantic with her, but i would really like to have her back in my life again, as a friend. we were BFFs for those two years, and it's sad to know that the person who knows every part of me is not in my life anymore.

should i contact her? i'm not even sure what i'd say, if i did. "oh hey, hi. i'm not with that other girl anymore, so we can be pals?" that would be terrible.

-i could possibly get a nice response from her
-she might want to reconcile

-she could still be very angry
-she could make me feel bad about the decisions that i've made
-she could totally reject my olive branch, and then i'll not want to reconcile ever

essentially, i'd like to be her friend again, at some point. the decision isn't really up to me. what do i do, TQC?

We had a post about what you do that's annoying or what part of your personality is troublesome - so, what part of your personality do you like best or enjoy most?

And lastly and most importantly -
Hey gang - remember a time in your life when you could use well wishes more than you could even imagine?
Well, our very own GW* is smack dab in the middle of one right now - will you please send all the positive energies and good wishes her way that you can muster, so that her beloved doggie family member may pull through a very tough time??

Yes, very bored, and I'm taking it out on you
Some random questions:

1) If you have a sibling could you imagine moving out and living together with him/her?

2) What's the longest it has ever taken you to get ready for a date?

3) Have you ever gotten a Spongebob Squarepants fan article? For yourself or as a present doesn't matter

4) Have you ever tried mustard on cheese? Do you think it's a weird combination?

5) Has someone ever adressed you with the wrong gender?

6) My doctor is from eastern Europe, that's why his German always sounds very strange and I sometimes feel like this might have an influence on his ability as a doctor, which is probably highly unfair towards him... how would you feel about it, or wouldn't it bother you at all?

I'm just back from my wee day trip to London (day trip! 8hour bus ride!) Anyway, I went with my friend and on the coach down she said something that had me shocked. Now I think about it I am really angry.

I have an ex that I am not over. He was from London and we spent a lot of time there. So I guess I was talking about him a lot. I wasn't moaning about missing him or anything, just mentioning him a lot. On the coach down she said ' Gee you really need to stop talking about him' This shocked me. Now I'm pissed off. She's my best friend and I guess it must be annoying being in her shoes but isn't this what friends are meant to do? Its not that when she's dribbling over the one night stand she had 4years ago that she still has feelings for.

Do you think she was being a bit hypocritical?

Also.. on the coach we overheard a woman ask the man in front of her if he could adjust his seat so she could plug in her laptop. This confused me! Are their sockets on coaches? How the hell does that work? Or maybe I imagined her saying it...

i was totally going to shave my legs and wear a skirt and be all girly next week for school, but you know what happened?!?!?! i went to wal-mart and the cart i got had this awful metal bar going across the bottom at shin-level. i bashed my shin on it no less than eight times in the same spot, so now i have this gigantic reddish-green bump thing that will soon become the most horrendous looking bruise ever.

should i go ahead with my girly-girl plans and rock the bruise, or should i wait until it goes away to glam myself up?

EDIT: at what time should i start drinking today? i have no obligations today or tomorrow, and i have an unopened beer sitting on my desk right now. it is tempting me. should i open it now, or wait until later?

On the subject of t.v shows

You need a car and you've been saving up for it. You go down to the car lot and are looking at vehicles within your price range. One seems to suit your purposes and you're now looking for a salesman, when you pass by a Jaguar. You stop and admire its sleekness, when a salesman finds you and tries to get you to buy it. You explain the car that's more suitable for you, he throws in this little offer. "I've been watching you and I'm really liking what I see. If you agree to sleep with me 10 times, the Jaguar's yours." What do you do? Those of you with SOs, think how you'd explain the car. The salesman himself is 40ish, average looking, a little chunky

Take him up on the offer. A good car is worth giving away sex
Decline his offer. Purchase the car I had been looking at earlier
Steer him to a more modest car, say, something in the $30k range, and ask how many times I'd have to sleep with him for that one
Offer him one lay in exchange for the car I was eying earlier
Offer to give him a handjob in exchange for a used Ford Fiesta

Each comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, which includes its name, birth date and care instructions. Currently in sixth grade, O'Neill was named 2007 Entrepreneur of the Year in the under-16 category. Previously, the competition was reserved for high school students, but his idea was so impressive the new category was created just for him.

WTF? Entrepreneur of the year for THAT?

Computer help!

Let me start off by saying just how frustrating this is for me. I am the computer wiz that everyone I know goes to for all their computer needs. I can't figure this out and I have fiddled around almost everyday for about a week.
Now, I have both PowerIso and DAEMON Tools.
I bought Sims 2 Deluxe (with Nightlife) and I had asked around to my friends if anyone had expansions. One friend happened to have just about everything you can get, and made them into PowerIso files. He told me to just mount the PowerIso thingie, and it would auto run.
Now the hitch, Everytime I tried to mount it, I would get an error message saying to insert the disk.
After a week of trying, I gave up. One day I wanted to check up on my sims. Well, it kept telling me to insert disk into drive (I had only tried the pets and seasons) and after trying to mount the images once more and fiddling a bit, it still gave me messages to tell me I failed at life.
Fine. I'll just delete the attempts and then get onto sims. That'll work... right?
After about an hour of deleting and trying to load the game. And dismayed thoughts about having to delete my sims as well, it finally worked.
Yay, my sims, I haven't seen them in..... Where are my sims? Pleasantview? Nope. Veronaville? Nothing.
How in the flaming jesus did all my crap get deleted? And how can I possibly make all this work?!

Hungry like the Wolf

You get bitten by a large, stray dog. You get it checked out, and there's no rabies or any other known diseases. You got about life as normal. Around the full moon, you feel very tired and completely drained, and go to sleep early. The next day you read about how 4 people in the city were killed by a wild animal. You think it's awful but don't think much of it. The next month, same thing. Around the full moon, you go bed early, and the morning after, the police find 5 dead bodies, torn apart by a wild animal. Maybe after a few months, you really start to notice the pattern in these two things; the early, exhausted bedtimes around the full moon and the various deaths. You start to wonder about the bite. Then, one morning after, 4 more people killed by a wild animal, and you find fresh blood on your hands. You have no recollection of anything that happened the night before, and as far as you remember, you went to bed early and stayed there.

1. What do you do about your current situation, and the many past deaths that might have been brought about by your hand? Own up to it and turn yourself in, or keep it a secret?
2. What will you do the next full moon? Lock yourself up somewhere or just let whatever happens, happen?

Imagine this scenario: Your SO invites you to hang out with you at their job tomorrow. You say you aren't sure, but maybe. Tomorrow comes, and you decide to go. Before you leave, you notice they have made a note on their MySpace/Facebook/LiveJournal account about ten/fifteen minutes ago saying they are extremely stressed out and want to "say fuck it" (but don't elaborate).

Knowing they are probably very stressed out and anxious, would you still go?

It also appears to be in England as they are talking similarly to the way they did in "Mary Poppins". There are three kids. The man's name is Mr. Brown and the woman's name is Ms. Brice in this movie. One of the boy's wants Mr. Brown to be his father.

What movie is this?

Social Psychology vs. Race in the U.S.

Should I take Social Psychology or Race in the U.S. during spring quarter? What's your reason for your answer?

How do people manage to balance a full-time load at college (getting good grades), jobs, volunteering, school clubs/activities and still manage to have a good social life? Seems impossible to me.

Sort inspired by a previous post.

I often wonder: why, in TV and movies, people are either straight or gay? If a straight guy starts dating a guy, people say he's gay, even if he still likes women. It's like the only bisexuals start out that way. Am I the only one wondering about this? Are bisexuals just a myth, made up to scare children? What would the reason be for scaring our kids with those evil bisexuals?

Totally unrelated: what do you do to relieve stress?

Does this scare you?

Women with vulvar vestibulitis, a condition marked by painful intercourse, are more likely than other women to have taken birth control pills for long periods of time and to use those with a particular composition of hormones, according to Quebec researchers.

If you've taken college-level chemistry...how did you force yourself to do all of the homework?

(I badly want to stab my brains out atm. It's incredibly tedious, and lots of stupid mistakes are possible.)

1. Does shopping make anyone else sick? literally... like you have a time limit before you start to feel crappy when you're in a mall or you end up with a cold a few days after you were there

2. Any suggestions for what I should do to amuse myself, it's Saturday no one's answering their phones, I'm home alone and I just found out one of my closest 'net friends has been lying to me for 8 years about what she looks like/every other aspect of her life so basically she's just a really weird trolly grimeface who could in theory come kill me since she has my address and cell number although I doubt she will since she's no avoiding all contact with me (I'd actually like to talk to someone about this feel free to IM me on AIM: MUNIspotting415... even if IM mobile I'm online)

3. Name an artist/band/musician who's work you never get tired of no matter what it sounds like?

Incubus, Sarah Vaughn, Nina Simone, Amy Winehouse, Jeff Buckley and Jump Little Children can do no wrong in my eyes

4. Popping eyebrow/back/ass/pubic zits: disgusting or occasionally necessary

occasionally necessary and disgustingly fun

5. Whats the oddest mixture of liquor you've found yourself drinking in succession?

Last night I drank: Watermelon Vodka, Carlo Rossi Rhine Wine, Bacardi Superior, Sparks (a malt liquor/energy drink), a Corona and Kenwood's Sauv. Blanc... and I woke up this morning just fine so I'm going to say my body doesnt care about warnings

1. Do you guys know of any band/artist/music albums that have like cool intros at the end of one track to go into the next track to make it sound like one long piece of music when you listen to the whole CD? I know it's a vague question...I'm thinking albums like Panic! at the Disco type things.

2. Are there any TV shows that you used to watch before you realized they were completely shit and you were an idiot for watching them? That happened with Doug and Sabrina, the Teenage Witch for me.

sexist insults

So recently, I've been introduced  to having other people say "so-and-so has such a sandy vagina today", and I was curious as to whether or not this is a sexist comment.

For example, I understand that it is sexist when you call someone a "cunt". However, if you say that someone has a sandy vagina, you are basically saying that this person is acting cranky, as if they had a sandy vagina.

So would this be considered sexist?

What good news have you gotten today TQC?


Just got done watching the whole series for the first time, having not seen any of it on TV because I generally don't watch TV. So in the spirit of that, for those familiar with the show...

1) Who was your favorite character (out of the "Big 9")?

2) Who was your least favorite (of the "Big 9")?

3) In the last episode ("Objects in Space"), upon hearing Simon's line "My sister is a ship" did anybody else think of Faulkner's famous uber-short chapter that consisted of the sentance "My mother is fish"?

4) Why is Jayne's character so popular?

5) If you've heard of the show and/or movie but never seen them, why not?

- If you wear contacts, do you own glasses? When do you wear them?
- If you wear glasses, do you need to wear them all the time or can you function without them for periods of time?

I was watching  Flight of the Concord yesterday and that song "It's business Time" and I found it somewhat amusing but I don't think it's REALLY FUNNY.
The reason I'm bringing this up is because everyone I know thinks it's hilarious.
I also don't really like The Office.
I'm more of a monty python, mr.bean kind of gal I guess.
Does anyone relate to not finding these popular culture things funny?
And does anyone think that Will Ferrell is seriously overrated?

Anyway, on to the question.

Poll #1136087 Tell the Truth - celebrity edition

Tell the truth. What do you want to see happen with Britney Spears?

She gets her act together and becomes the sexy pop star we used to love
She OD's and pulls a Heath Ledger
She stops fucking up her life, settles down, gets her kids back, and becomes a healthy, well-adjusted, responsible mother
She goes off the deep end, attacks the paparazzi with a garden gnome, and spends the next 15 years in a padded cell
Fatal, tragic end. Something so messed up that even TMZ wouldn't show it
Whatever happens to her, I hope that it involves her never making the entertainment news again. I'm sick of her already. GO AWAY!
Gets back together with KFed. I know they can work it out! If not, it'd be damn entertaining to watch them try

Tell the truth. Has Scientology and Katie-related craziness changed how you feel about Tom Cruise? Would you pay to see his movies from now on?

Of course! Ilu, Maverick
No. Fucking. Way. I can't see him as anything but a derranged cultist now
My church demands I see his movies. 15 times. Hail L. Ron
Only if the movie really looked good. But it would have to look so compelling that I overlook the fact that he's in it
Honestly, what he does with his personal life is his own thing. Who cares? Doesn't have anything to do with his acting ability

Tell the truth. How do you feel about Brangelina?

Love them as much now as I did then. They can do no wrong
They went from sexy Hollywood people to weird foster parents who can't stop collecting kids. Not sexy
Overexposure. They need to both go away. Them and their adopted brood. GO AWAY
Indifferent. Didn't care about them before, don't care about them now
I didn't think much of them before, but they're such good, responsible, people who are trying to make a difference. I think they're awesome now
If they stopped making movies that sucked, I'd probably like them a lot better

Google has failed me, help!

There's an ad running, I'm pretty sure it's for JC Penny, for Valentine's Day necklaces. Where the guy takes the necklace out of the box, and it starts swinging like it's hypnotizing the lady, all "you are very happy with me right now." It totally cracked me up and I want to show it to some people, but I can't find it anywhere! Could someone link me to it?

Any other funny ads you care to link to?

And there's a cat macro that I can't find. I've gone through about half of the http://icanhascheezburger.com archives but I'm getting tired of hunting, and I'm pretty sure I've seen it here. It's based on the macro of a cat "driving a car" and it was shopped so it's holding a phone, and there's this huge block of text like the cat just broke up with her tom-cat boyfriend. Anyone have a link to that one too?

So, who's getting big bucks on their tax return? I'm not getting much back, but at least it's something. I'm jealous of everyone getting their nice big refund of like 2 grand, cry.

Okay, so I decided almost 72 hours ago that I was going to quit smoking, and haven't had a hit cigarette or any kind of nicotine since then.  I'm actually not crawling out of my skin, but I have a feeling that soon I will be.  I'm also scared of gaining weight, because I just lost 15  lbs and don't want to gain it back.

What should I do to keep me from smoking that won't make me gain a ton of weight?  (I don't have a lot of time to work out/do aerobics or anything, I work full time and go to school full time)

(Srs and non-srs answers totally appreciated).

ETA: I hate chewing gum.
