I need computer help, TQC!

I'm trying to delete a real bitch of a file, but I suck with command prompts. I'm typing in

C:\Users\Kali>Desktop>DEL spooky.avi

but it keeps telling me that 'Desktop' is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

What am I doing wrong? How the hell do I delete this file?

I asked my room mate tonight if it was okay that me and my boyfriend have my dorm alone for four hours tomorrow. She said she can't because she needs to study. I said to her that I understand, couldn't she study somewhere else? She said she'd try, but no guarantees.

TCQ, wtf? Should I punch her in the face?

Jesus has turned on the GameShark to your life. However, since GameSharks are prone to freezing the game if they're overloaded--and restarted a person gets messy--he's decided that he's only going to give you two special codes. These are permanent alterations to you, since it's a lot of work to make a backup copy in case he doesn't like the way it turns out or the it freezes at a bad spot. He also tried the Konami Code, but it turns out that life is actually a Microsoft product, not Konami.

Keeping in mind that you must suffer with all of the consequences that you may deal with, what would you prefer Jesus overwrite your save-data with?

sue johanson thinks that anyone who hasn't had penis-in-vagina sex is a virgin. she specifically said that people who have had anal sex, including gay men, are still virgins if they haven't put/gotten it in a vagina.

First question

I'm usually just a lurker, but I was wondering something. I've never worn make up before but recently I cut my hair short and I've become somewhat interested (now that my face is more accentuated). What are good brands of make up/colors you would recommend for someone with hazel eyes and a pale complexion? I can post a pic, if it'll help.

I had the most bizzare dream last night. I dreamt that I was at church and that there was this huge caged wall that prevented us from leaving and there was this girl, this very obese, obviously delusional girl that tried to tell us that she was Christina Agulara(howeveryouspaylhername) and we all knew she wasn't and omg, I've heard people with laryngitis sing better *NAILS ON CHALK BOARD!*

Anyway. This is how I knew I had over slept. When I over sleep I have these really freak odd dreams that are like my brains way of saying WAY UP BITCH!

1 Has this ever happened too anyone else?

I spent about 2 hours at the local laundromat. Got basically all of my work clothes washed and for the most part dried. Before that. I got my kitchen table cleared off and the area rug vaccumed. I felt very productive yesterday.2) What was the most productive thing you've done recently?

3) Do you prefer odd numbers or even numbers? Am all about the even numbers. I find it difficult to remember odd numbers. They just don't want to stick for some reason.

Which brings me to the fourth question (to keep it even yall) my vacation is almost over. ANd I feel like I've gotten basically nothing done (aside from the laundry.) it feels like the days have just slipped away... 4) Why do vacations fly by, but the rest of the time just seems to go. so. freaking.

I was reading the paper yesterday and came upon one of those advice columns that people write to. A grandmother wrote in that her granddaughter had been raped by her stepfather, but was afraid to press charges because she didn't want to put her mother through any more pain. She told the family what happened though, and the mother decided that if the girl hadn't led the stepfather on, he wouldn't have raped her. Can anyone possibly explain that way of thinking to me? I'm trying to understand it, but I just keep getting back to the whole "if the girl hadn't led the stepfather on, he wouldn't have raped her" thing and it just doesn't make sense.

There's another advice columnist who responds to almost every letter with almost the same response, different wording: if you're really nice, your problems will go away! :D

I was a hardcore tomboy. I wore tight jeans and skate/surf shoes and shirts, and skateboarded to school, and went to surf tournaments (and lost horribly, except I won a doorprize a few times). I loved to wear my hair in pigtail braids with a beanie. And I listened to Green Day on my walkman in class. OHH BAD ASS. And I chewwed gum. I thought I was hot shit. It was year 2000.

paging dr lj.

so i'm at school, i have insurance, and i don't have a doctor around here. put yourself in this scenario please:

-the boy i'm dating was very very sick with a cough/sore throat/fever/etc for like three weeks and has been finally getting over it for the last two weeks.
-he has not been able to hear out of his right ear for a month now.
-the school nurse saw him once, knew about his cold and hearing, and did nothing.
-he went back a week later and got antibiotics.
-the cold part is mostly better since the antibiotics but his hearing isn't.

two nights ago i got a sore throat. yesterday i was suddenly much worse. today i am even worse. i have the coughing, sore throat, headache, and earache, and i'm getting a fever. since i got back to my room at 1pm, i have coughed and thrown up twice.

so, when would you go to the walk in clinic?

i'm trying to put it off and go to the nurse tomorrow, though they might not have an opening for me and they very likely won't do anything except tell me to come back if i'm still sick in a week. also, it feels as though coughing one more time might cause my throat to fucking bleed. what do i do? :( this hit me very quickly like a very sturdy brick wall.

edit: 4 out of 4 comments say to go now. are we sure they wont be like, "you baby, it's just a cold!"?

I don't want it to sting me because I don't know if I'm allergic because I've never been stung and we don't have any epi pens in the house and I'm all alone and I don't wanna die. I scared.

Also, my really awesome blue penguin key topper is on my bedroom key and my 'It's okay to be gay' female keychain is on it, too. I've been without them for three days now and I can't check my box.

(4) My mom refuses to punish my younger brother. She buys him ciggarettes and when I told her he'd been drinking, she just said "Okay. I'll take care of it" and nothing happened. She also gets mad at me if I try and tell my dad that my brother's been doing something he shouldn't. WTF IS UP WITH THAT? She's completely ready to jump all over me if I leave a knife in the sink if I do dishes, or if I fall asleep on the couch. If my brother falls asleep on the couch she just rolls her eyes and goes back to her bedroom.

(5) I'm getting 138$ back for my tax return. Should I buy a Nintendo DS or get my cat neutered? He doesn't spray or anything, but it would probably stop him from trying to paw his way through my bedroom window at night. I'd end up with about 70$ left over if I neuter him, so I'd probably put that back or buy some dvds.

When I was a little kid, I had very long, thick, wavy dark hair. Whenever my mom and I would go places, people would walk up to us and comment on how "gorgeous" my hair was. Some people would even pet/caress my hair. It creeped me out, especially when I was really little.

A friend of mine experiences the same thing -- her hair is not only long, thick and wavy, but it's this absolutely mesmerizing shade of red. You know, that classic "coppertop" colour that everyone who wants to be a redhead aspires to. We went out for her birthday a few weeks ago, and when we were leaving the restaurant, this middle-aged woman reached out and took my friend's hair in both her hands, asking if it was "real."

Honest to God. I know it was creepy enough when I was a kid, but I cannot even imagine how it would be if someone did that to me now.

so i'm pretty sure a lot of you saw my post saturday about my sociopathic ex, and i'm pretty sure at least a few of you heard how he's admitted to being a maschocist and that he's shot cats with a shotgun "to see what would happen". that said... i have to go to his house tonight around eleven to collect my various belongs that got left there. his parents and little brother will be home, but they'll be asleep and generally sleep through anything anyways.

i'm super paranoid about this. i don't really think he'd do anything to hurt me physically, because i think he gets off more on causing people emotional pain, not physical. but i'm still paranoid, because one of my friends keeps telling me to bring someone with me when i go and it's making me feel like i seriously have something to worry about.

tqc, can you help me feel less anxious about this?

edit: i can't really go another day, due to his work schedule, and also because i'll have to wear his hoodie every day until i go, because mine only hoodie is at his house. the more i think about it, the less i think he'd even try anything, because he's selfish and i'm almost positive he gets off more on emotional pain and thus has no reason to hurt me physically. HOWEVER. i'm working on getting someone to come with me, but most of my friends are either at work or they live really far away.

Stay-at-home spouses/parents

For those of you who are or know or have a parent that doesn't work while his/her spouse does, how does the couple work out the money situation? Does one give the other an "allowance" or do they have a joint checking account with some kind of budget agreement, or something else?


You enter a public restroom that is full-the next stall to open up is a handicapped stall do you take it even though you're not in a wheelchair? What if there was a person in a wheelchair behind you-do they automatically get it even though they aren't the next person in line, or does the next person PERIOD, get it?

I  just got back from the optomostrist and I asked what my vision is.  The assistant printed it out for me and I saw that my vision is TERRIBLE (I already knew it's bad because I can't see but to see it in numbers was something else, haha).  We actually lauged out loud.  It's -6.00/-5.50.

Do you know what your vision is?

Can is possibly be worse than mine?

Do you make more money than your significant other?

Yes, I make more.

Does anyone have an experiance working for a State or National Park in the US and would like to share their thoughts on it? (Experiances related by friends is fine too.)

the book of your life

If there was a biography about you, what would the chapter detailing your life right now be titled?

Mine right now would be : "Big Decisions Are Made, Big Changes Are Coming".  I would be living the very last page in the chapter right now.  A new chapter would start on Saturday, and it would be titled "Eastward Towards a New Dawn"

So what chapter of your life are you living right now?

Apologies for the emo

So I spent most of last night verbally sparring with my loopy FIL before ending up having to call 911 at 6am this morning. What should I do if he wakes in the middle of the night with more of the same shit?

Non-serious answers preferred, if I don't laugh I'll cry.

So my computer has suddenly stopped showing me thumbnails in my pictures folder. I have no clue why, and no clue how to fix this and it's quite annoying. I have Windows Vista.

Can anyone help please?

similar to the previous question about strange foods.

Is there a food combination you eat that you see NOTHING strange/odd about but there are people that look at you funny?

I like Thousand Island dressing on my burgers and some people think it's SO weird. Dude, all it is is stuff you'd likely put on a burger anyway.

Who else doesn't get when people are all sympathetic to somebody with a hangover, or who got hurt on their drunk excursions?

I'm not talking, oh I feel crappy because I had a little too much to drink, I mean when they knowingly/carelessly get drunk off their ass.

1. Have you had any pets that liked to eat anything weird?
2. On Malcom in the Middle, is that guys name "Craig" or "Creg"?
3. Is Creg ever a name? If not, why do people not say Craig?
4. What can I take on the train to snack on at uni?

I had a cat who loved to eat bread, if you left it out of the bread box she'd rip through the packet & eat it. Very odd.
Also my ferret likes to eat anything rubber, and yellow highlighters, but I think that's pretty on par for ferrets.

Significant other's smell

There have been studies in the past that have linked body odor of men with genetic compatibility. I would link but I'm just lazy.

I have found in the past that there have been significant others that I loved the smell of their body odor. There were some cases that I would sleep with thier shirts because it smelled like them. Somehow it was comforting.

Do you love how your significant other smells? Is it just when they are clean that you like the way that they smell or do you like their smell after a hard workout?

Does anyone think that this is weird? I think that most people would think that this is odd since Americans are obsessed with hygiene.

family member's college records

My mom went to FIT. All we (me, my dad, my aunt, uncle, & grandpa) know is that she went, had a full scholarship, and did not graduate. I've been trying to get details out of my family members but they don't seem to have any. If I contacted FIT would I be able to get a copy of her records or something? Would they be allowed to give me such info? I'm calling tomorrow to find out about this, but I'm really curious. I will be applying there for Fall 2009 so I thought it would be kind of interesting to see.

EDIT: She has been dead for 8 years, asking her is not an option.

EDIT #2: When I call tomorrow should I call the general info number, or the alumni affairs number?

 Did you have to go to school/work today?
Negative. But I did have Mock Trial practice.

Did it make you happy or sad?
Happy on the no school, sad on the Mock Trial, because I had to turn down going to the beach. =[

Do you hate Mondays?
Only when it's nice outside.

Because it's getting really close to the rainy season here, so i want to take advantage of the beautiful February weather in sunny SW Florida!

Maybe I'm just stupid

Anyway, I have a weekly internet radio show, but a lot of my listeners complain that when I speak into the mic, they can barely hear me.

Now, I took a look and apparently that's very true. It's not my soundcard because it works fine on sound recorder, Skype, and everything else that uses the mic so it must be my shoutcast settings. Except that even after uninstalling and reinstalling about five times, Shoutcast keeps my settings.

So I ask you guys. How can I uninstall/reinstall Shoutcast so that it is a totally clean install with all the default settings instead of my messed up ones?

cartoon crush

when I was a little girl I had a mad crush on Bugs Bunny.

As a teenager, it was all about Mr Softee (I envisioned having children with little ice cream cone heads)

Now, I dream of Frylock from ATHF.

Who's your cartoon crush?


        So lately, I've been thinking about trying out marijuana.  Though I've tried it twice before, I've never been "high", which is rare for a 17-year-old in my town.  
       This past weekend, I went to church camp.  It was so boring and made me want to be in an altered state of mind.  Unfortunately, my step-brother, who would normally bring pot to such an event, figured that nobody would want to smoke out with him.  So he didn't bring any.  The whole camp was dry.
       Should I try it out, and achieve the state of being faded?  It sounds like a fun thing to do with friends. 
       Should I abstain?  Part of me is scared that becoming a stoner will de-motivate me, leading to a loss of my abundant ambition.

Along with your response, feel free to include synonyms for "marijuana", "high", "pot-head", and/or "to smoke".

For those who appreciate the vino:

Is there a type of wine you just can't drink and enjoy? Do you have a favorite that you keep going back to?

I really can't get into Merlot, it's so icky to me. Weird. But I've been loving Zinfandel lately.

TQC in a quest of healthy living I have taken up running (jogging/powerwalking/whatever). Buuuut, for some reason only my left leg gets sore and crampy. ALSO my left nostril is tender, and my left ear hurts.

I think one of the reasons I have been so pissed off and angry lately is because I have NEVER had a vacation. Since last June I have been working at the shop 60++ hours a week.
So this morning I woke up and decided this is going to change.
I'm going to take a vacation and start anew.
Right now I'm looking at Bora Bora, cost is less than expensive.
Any suggestions where I should go?
Looking to spend less than 3,000 the entire trip.
Hell is not an option, neither is a dumpster to all you trouble makers in TQC;)
I love you all.

Wound healing

I've got a really minor cut on my thumb (which I did accidentally with one of my other fingernails). It's really inconvenient when I have a cut on my hand at work- I need to use about 100 pairs of gloves (I'm not exaggerating).

What helps wounds heal quicker? I already eat a nourishing diet. Any supplements you can suggest?

Bella / Alone in Woods

Ah, roommates.

TQC, I come to you tonight asking for your advice.

I live in student housing & was basically the last one to move in. I got placed in the only available spot with three other girls. One I never see, & the other two I don't get along with. Here is a small list of things they've done to Collapse )

So my question is, should I stay here in this apartment & try to just ignore them & be the better person, or should I try to be moved to a different unit thus giving them what they want? I've had input on this issue already, but am still uncertain as to which I should do. Yes, I've tried to talk to them. In general, I'm not an incredibly assertive person, & that's half the reason why I can't decide. I know I should stand up for myself, & I have, but what should I do now that I've done so & haven't received any progressive results?

I know smoking questions have been asked before but I'm curious after discussing smoking with my friend this afternoon soooooo...

1. Do you smoke?
1a. If you don't smoke now have you ever before, even just once?

2. If so how old were you when you started?

3. Did it make you sick the first time you smoked?

I smoke (well not right now) and my dad always told me it would make me puke my guts up but I never got sick at all so I'm just trying to figure out if this was used as a way to detour me from smoking. Tobacco (or niccotine, I'm not sure which) is supposedly an emetic so apparently it should or could make you sick. I'm just trying to figure out how many people do and how many people don't get sick

I have asthma. It normally doesn't bother me, but for a few days my lungs have felt wet. For the past hour I have been panting and having chest pains. Feels like someone's squashing me.

Is this an asthma attack? Should I... you know, go to the hospital?
What does an asthma attack feel like?
Maybe it's a chest cold?

extreme protesters

What do you think of "extreme" protesters?

By extreme I mean people who form human roadblocks (happened today in the county adjacent to where I live), chain themselves to trees, or other forms of protest that will likely make the news but are also usually illegal.

Personally, I think it usually does more harm than good. It's extreme to the point where alot of people will think you're crazy thus wondering just how many people that suppor this cause are also crazy. In the case of something like a roadblock, your interference in people's lives makes them less sympathetic to your cause. At least I'd think so.
