What's more worthwhile to learn a language? A class or a book with a CD?

If it helps I do have people that are native speakers of language so they can correct any problems I may come across. I just don't want to end up spending a big chunk of money when I could get the same thing out of a book for way less.

should i minor in german? i kind of want to. i think german is fun. it's not really very useful but if i find that the minor is more effort than it's worth i can always forget the idea.

i'm a math-econ major.

also HEY HEY HEY LOOK AT ME I'M ADDING ANOTHER QUESTION

it smells like fish in my house because i cooked fish tonight. i've lit scented candles, i've sprayed lysol, i've febrezed all the fabric surfaces, i even smoked a cigarette inside because that helps sometimes. i don't have incense and i can't open the windows (it's like 12 degrees outside and i don't want to get robbed again). i ran the washing machine and i let the sink fill up with soap bubbles. is there anything else i'm forgetting that can help kill the stench?

I checked webmd, but I'm not sure. Do I have the flu?

Symptoms:
-headache from hell
-achey and sore everywhere, especially my back and shoulders
-chills. Despite being wrapped in two down blankets, I'm shivering. It's also 20 degrees out here, but the heat is on in the house.
-no sore throat or runny nose
-no appetite, and I've had a stomach ache all day.

Either way, I have the next two days off from work, so if I am sick (and I feel miserable), I can recover. I just wanna know what I'm fighting.

Question: does that sound lame, cliche, decent, or awesome to you?

When was the last time a friend/family member said "Hey, remember that one time..." and you didn't?

What was the story they thought you should remember?

My sister just asked me, "Hey remember a few years back we dropped a box of tacks and I said it was 'tacky' and you were like 'hey it's New York' and we thought we were hilarious?" I have NO IDEA what she's talking about. Nor can I figure out why we thought it was funny.

So we had a pretty bad ice storm yesterday.

My car is like an ice cube. It is going to take me forever to get the ice off of it enough to make it drivable. School was canceled everywhere, so I don't have class. Unfortunately, I haven't heard anything from the law firm I work at. The husband is home as well. His supervisor called last night and told him to take a snow day.

So...roads are pretty hazardous....state and local police are still urging people to not get out if they don't have to...

My shift at the firm is only 4 hours..its roughly 16 miles away from my house. On a normal day, it takes about 20-30 minutes to get there. On a day like today? Probably twice that.

Should I call and tell them I can't get out? Or should I suck it up and try to drive on the ice?

ETA: Also, I missed work last Thursday (I only work Tuesdays and Thursdays) because of strep throat. The week before that I missed because of the flu. They are pretty understanding though. Everyone else in the office is sick.

ETA #2: I just called. The answering machine is on. Which means nobody is there or the morning meeting ran 30 minutes over schedule (which is highly unlikely).

So...why didn't they call me!?! What the hell!? Everyone has my number, especially the boss!

I'm not new to cleaning, but I have to entirely muck out my mother's four bedroom, two bathroom, formal dining room, living room, kitchen, and laundry room house. It's messy as hell because she works so much and I want to surprise her before she gets home from her trip.

One of my LJ friends recently had to delete her LJ. However I really need her advice and she said we could contact her on myspace.com.

 I do data entry for invoices at work and our tech guys travel to different sites.  We bill for time and travel.  One guy put 4 miles in 1 hour.  Since that's what he put, I went with it against my better judgment.  In theory, it could have taken an hour to go 4 miles (terrible accident, freeway closure, etc).  My co-worker received a phone call from the company that we billed and contested it.  My co-worker said "It doesn't take an hour to go 4 miles.  It's common sense."  She then had it revised.

Even though I was wrong, she spoke condesendingly to me and grated my nerves.  For a moment, I got in touch with my bad side and thought about writing "Pease don't speak to me that way" in super glue on her chair, she would sit in it, and I would feel better.



If one of your co-workers was rude to you, how would you handle it?  Serious and non-serious answers.

this may be a long shot but...

i caught the last bit of this movie that was on tv a few weeks ago. the ending was really cute and it's been bugging me what this movie is called. so, from what i remember, there's this single mom and she has a little daughter with a gorgeous head of red hair. her mom is seeing this man whom the daughter isn't so fond of and she ends up challenging him to a couple of simple games and if the girl wins, the man has to breakup with her mom. if the guy wins, then the girl has to be nicer etc to him and he gets to stay with her mom. so during their last competition, it was a staring contest and the girl ended up blinking first and lost but later that night she finds out that her mom and the guy broke up. the next day or so, the little girl meets up with her mom's ex and they hang out for a bit on the swings. she hugs him and says to him, "i blinked on purpose" and runs off. it was really cute and i'm dyinggg to know the name of this movie.

any help is surely appreciated and i'm sorry if my description was so vague. thanks so much in advance!

So my girlfriend is obsessed with TQC and spends her every dying moment on here. Before I joined she talked about it constantly, and I actually hated you all for the mere fact that it seemed like she liked you more than me. Anyway, I ended up joining, thinking that she'd enjoy me knowing what she was talking about, and we could discuss the awkward questions and the trolls and the like over a morning cup of electronic coffee.

She hates that I'm on here now. It turns out that I kinda like it! She's telling me I don't get to have sex with her or play with her boobs if I don't stop posting.

Do I stay for spite?

Is she being retarded?

Shouldn't she want to share something she enjoys with me?

Doesn't it matter if I enjoy it?

I just got into my first "car accident".
Luckily it was just a fender bender in the parking lot and it wasn't either of our faults. We both backed in to each other. We exchanged phone numbers and I just got a message from the girl asking me to please not report it to the insurance company. I don't know what she's asking or what I should do. There was a dent on her car but no damage to mine.

How do I handle this situation?

"I would quite happily push the button on the electric chair, I would happily inject someone with the lethal injection, and if we had hanging I would do the same thing because I want my husband back."


This is from a woman who's husband was kicked to death by a group of youths outside his home when he was trying to stop them breaking into his wife's car. She's trying to bring back the death penalty to England.

What happened to her husband is terrible, of course.. but this campaign for the capital punishment rather disgusts me. Nothing will bring her husband back, and American studies show that citizens who live in states that still have the death penalty do not have lower crime rates.. it does not stop them from commiting murder etc..

I feel so strongly about the subject that I would actively involve myself in working against any kind of mission to bring it back.

1. Do you agree with the death penalty?- why or why not..?
2. Would you support a campaign to bring it back wherever you live? (even if that just meant signing your name to a random street petition)

1) When I make tacos, I make them as such: Small layer of fat free refried beans, piles of vegetables(lettuce, tomato, onion, green pepper), small bit of shredded cheese, and a good helping of taco sauce. I eat them in crispy shells, and I eat 8 in one sitting because they're not all that big. That's my meal. Is that really bad for me, or seemingly healthy and low calorie?

1. What country do you live in?

2. As the U.S. elections draw near, I see many people saying "If so-and-so wins/doesn't win, I'm going to leave this country!" I doubt very many of them actually will, but what would it take for you to leave the country where you live? And I don't mean on vacation, I mean actually go to another country because you're either disgusted with the one you live in, or scared to stay any longer.

My answers

1. U.S.

2. If Hillary Clinton becomes president, and then in 2012 Jeb Bush is elected, I think I will leave the country. And if Chelsea Clinton becomes president after that, I may never come back.

On a serious note, I would also leave the country if the Constitution were suspended...although we're already getting uncomfortably close.

Was it unreasonable of me to ask him to do that? He agreed and all. My reasoning is that I just want him to look all nice and tidy for our wedding pictures. :)

a friend of mine went to jail for something stupid a few years ago, and is now looking for a job. he has worked in various busboy-type jobs since, but would like to maybe get a job in an office. i'm trying to help him build a resume, but he is worried about explaining the 8 month gap in employment. that said:

1. what is the best way to explain to a future employer (during an interview) that he spent some time in jail?
2. how much information is disclosed about this type of thing on a background check?
3. will this be on his background check for the rest of time?
4. is he required by law to give details of his conviction?
5. what is a good thing to search for when it comes to trying to find places that hire ex-convicts?

he lives in pennsylvania, and went to jail in maryland. from what i can tell, the laws about this stuff vary from state to state, but i'm not really sure what to search for. any input would be wonderful.

Let's say you're in a closet, hands and feet tied with a nylon rope (blue colored) and your gagged with a handkerchief and some tape. On the outside, you can hear the person who threw you in there--the father of your significant other. Turns out that he isn't too pleased with the fact that you have been unfaithful. He's talking with your SO, who is crying and begging him to be gentle to you--citing "love" and "children" and "future" and "S/he owes me $40". He doesn't hear most if it, because he's too busy talking to himself about all the different ways he's going to set you on fire from the inside, outside, and use your body to make various meat foodstuffs.

However, he's raging alcoholic who tires easy, and ends up going to bed before your SO. S/he attempts to break you out of the closet, but the racket manages to wake up the father--who is very upset because:
1) He's awake
2) He missed The Late Show

He grabs a knife that he had above you on a shelf and slashes at you, missing you, but cutting the ropes. You're free. In a manner of speaking. Do you:

1- Attack the man in self defense? Possibly killing him [this will have no effect on your relationship with the SO]
2- Decide the relationship with the SO is over and run like hell?
3- Use your SO as a meat shield and protect yourself from the next attack, hoping he will be too grief stricken to bother with a new attack so you can run/attack?
4- Wonder who this man is with a knife that has thrown you in this closet?

when you are holding hands with a SO, do you:

- just hold hands or do you lace fingers?
- how do you prevent sweaty palms? is it considered un-romantic to remove yourself in order to wipe your hands on your pants?

I feel like such a noob.

When you're talking to anyone, do you ever use your middle finger to point at something instead of your index finger?

My co-workers have a tendency to use their middle finger to point at things on whiteboards or in server racks, and I always brush it off, but I saw an episode of Seinfeld not too long ago where George got the middle finger point and Jerry didn't (while in the same sitting). As usual, George makes a big deal out of it and Jerry brushes it off. Today while I was signing my lease, the girl who handled my application and lease signing used her middle finger to point.

1. What do you think of people that blast music out of their car speakers? (To the point where it makes that awful vibrating noise and you wonder if they can even hear an ambulance or police signal)

2. What about neighbors (especially in a apartment) that blast their music so loud that it vibrates the floor and gives you a migraine?

Is there something that you don't like touching, but you kind of have to anyway?


I hate touching raw chicken, or just raw meat in general, but I make dinner every night, so it's hard not to touch. I also hate the feeling of chalk, but in two of my classes, we usually have to write notations on the board.

Can anybody get past Stage 8 in this puzzle?

I'm stuck :(

[ETA]: From the first page: NOTE: The text is always written in a clear form, it's just disguised in some way. There are no riddles or such things. The text is always located within the image file. It's never a reference to a place outside this website!
This puzzle is case sensitive.


Basically, the answer to the next page is always in the image somehow. You have to hunt for it! Stage 8 is still making me insane.

[ETA 2]: This works best in IE.

TL;DR with Audiodrops

I am hoping to go on a week-long trip to Denver, CO over spring break with my friends - One who is nineteen, one who is eighteen, and one who is seventeen - to meet a nineteen-year-old friend. (I'm seventeen as well.)

We already plan to:

-Check out two colleges we might want to go to
-Go to the zoo
-Go to the natural history museum
-Take a day or so and head to Colorado Springs, where my grandfather lives and the family of the friend we're visiting lives, and hit Garden of the Gods.

Provided my mother and father approve this, what should we do while we're there? (serious and non-serious welcome?)

In addition, it'll be about 384 dollars each for the absolute bare minimum we'll need - Hotel, gas, and food (provided we eat cheap the whole time we're there). We're all shooting for having 500 each at least, plus putting all our loose change and leftover lunch money, as well as like five or ten dollars whenever we can spare it in a 'community jar' that we'll turn to cash and bring with us in case someone runs out of money, we bust a tire, or something else unexpected happens. We're taking my friend's parents' car, and she has AAA. We'll be two hours or so from my grandfather, a friend's family, and, if the world ends and we absolutely HAVE to contact them, I've got family in Canon City, and yet another friend (who will not be coming with us, but who we're very close to and my parents trust deeply) has family in Denver as well.

What else would you recommend as safety precautions/planning? It's a nine hour drive, and it's gonna take a lot of preparation and foresight to prove to my parents we're capable of doing it. We're all trustworthy kids, but it's kind of a big deal - Not to mention, I'm a huge worrywart, but I'm pulling a blank here. What would you do in this situation?

According to Larry Elder, a black libertarian radio show host and author, "White racism is no longer a major factor in American life," and that the Democratic party of the US is fostering racism because "manipulators like Bill Clinton consider blacks stupid and want them to focus almost exclusively on the alleged problem of white racism".

What do you think?

Do you think racism of whites toward blacks is still a major factor in American life?

A family has two children. One child is responsible for running the dishes through the dishwasher cycles and unloading the dishwasher and putting the plates and utensils back on an as-needed basis, which is generally three times per week. The other child is responsible for taking out the garbage and the recyclables, which is once per week. This involves gathering the newspapers from a basket and the cans and bottles from another basket and dumping them into a recycling bin, and collecting the trash from six or seven different rooms in the house into a large garbage bin, then taking both bins to the curb.

Would you say these tasks are equally distributed chores? Or do you think one is more intensive than the other? If so, which one?

1.  How would you fill in the following sentence?

Any day where _______________ is not a good day.

Serious/not serious it's all good.

2. If you were fired from somewhere for your serious lack of work ethic (in other words, you couldn't be assed to actually show up to work... you completely agree that you were at fault and you have been fired from at least 4 other similar employers since for the exact same reasons), would you continue to use your former workplace(s) for whatever goods or services they provide, even if there were other options readily available?

Mine: 1. Any day where you spend 5 hours in the emergency room is not a good day.
2. No and I wish my former assistant would stop!

Can you give me a guess as to what would cause these symptoms?
I'm trying to figure out what my boyfriend has. He feels like there's sand in his left eye (which makes me think pinkeye, even though it's not red or pink anymore), but he also has a headache, a cough, a sore throat, and feels like he's running a fever (but has no way to tell if he actually is).
Could it just be pinkeye combined with feeling shitty? He hasn't been sleeping or eating well thanks to college life. I can't think of anything to explain the eye irritation :(

Dear TQC,

I am currently about to gnaw my own arm off, and am contemplating ordering takeout (since dining hall is SO not on my menu right now.)

Where should I order from -- KFC or Greco? I'm torn, I tell you -- TORN!
