it's late at night-everybody/everybody but you is in bed and toys (your room or somebody else's) start to go off on their own. What do believe is the cause
A. Low batteries
B. Aliens passing over/coming
C. Ghosts/spirits-and are they evil or just mischievous?
D. Display of the telekinetic abilities of the owner of the toy?
E. Something else, what?
Dear Dr. Livejournal,
My tonsils suddenly swelled up within one minute. I looked in the mirror and there's a bunch of white spots on them. I saw that strep throat may cause this (thx Google). Any other explinations you can think of?
I'll likely make a doctor's appointment tomorrow. Just wondering what to expect.
Inspired by a debate between my boyfriend and me:
Is it "bruise like a peach" or "bruise like a banana"?
I say peach, he says banana, and I think more people say peach. He says otherwise.
what actors or actresses do you think are gay/lesbian that have not "come out" yet?
i think possibly john cusack and kevin spacey.
i've heard things about jodey foster too but idk. appearantly jodie foster came out. ok.
Do you enjoy the song Ballroom Blitz?
Did you think it was actually first sung by Casandra in Wayne's World?
I'm going to a themed party, Superheros vs. Supervillians and I'm looking for inspiration. Bonus points for off beat or obscure answers:
1. What physically happens to you when you get embarrassed?
(ex: heart races, face turns red, wet yourself, involuntary twitching, etc)
2. Is there something you can do with your opposite hand that you can't normally do with your dominant hand?
1. Ears turn ridiculously red, and/or I blush really easily
2. I knew a girl who was right-handed and used scissors with her left hand. I have an easier time lifting and holding heavy things with my left hand rather than my dominant right hand.
okay so like a couple of weeks ago between commercial breaks MTV was showing snips of this doctor/speaker giving speaches he was African(i think) and had a grayish afro.
and my question is does anybody know what his name is?
is it true that acne face wash/scrub fades your skin?
1. When you get paid, do you thank your boss or do they thank you? One of my bosses always hands me my money and thanks me and the other one gives my money and I ended up saying thank you. I don't get it.
2. Do you ever whip out your cell phone to calculate a perfect 20% tip (or whatever %)? Do you lol when people do?
3. Do you recycle?
Someone made this comment in a community I'm in: "You know how everyone has that one book that changes their life?"
Do you have any books like that? What are they?
Is the UK as Racist as USA?
If a post is longer than normal, do you tend to skip over it?
Maybe you read one or two sentences to get the jist of it and then move on?
Who the sings "Irish Drinking Song"? Is it Flogging Molly or Dropkick Murphys or Bouncing Souls? Because me & 2 of my friends all have it on our iPods as someone different. Do they each have a version? Google turns up all of them so...
2 What's your favorite song to play at parties or bars?
3 Favorite happy music video?
Do you know anywhere online that sells sort of quirky interesting jewelry (particularly earrings) thats cheap and USA based -- and not a major brand?
I love formulaexo.com but its in Canada and its sort of expensive for shipping.
Okay, I tried searching through Paypal, and I couldn't find it anywhere, so I'm asking here.
Does anyone know if you have a PREMIER Paypal account, is there a limit of how many credit card payments you can accept?
I'm new to trying to use Paypal for anything more than a few fun transfers, so I am thuroughly confused.
My friend and I were asked by a scout to come in for interviews at the Abercrombie and Fitch headquarters in my home town. Since I'm between tour-jobs, I need an actual day job and decided to give it a shot. I'm hardly a fan of A&F, but a job is a job. We don't even know what the interview is for, but we're going to give it a shot anyway. She's studying fashion and wants the job really bad. I just need a job and am hoping for the best. My questions are...
1. How should I dress for this? Every other job I've had in the past few years has come from me being dressed in pretty much rock-attire, or what I would consider rock-attire. Tight jeans tucked into black boots, torn t-shirt, zip up hoodie, spiked hair in the back, etc... but this isn't for a music-related job. Suggestions?
2. My resume is completely music related and geered towards an artist/band. Should I just use that one? I worked at a pet store when I was 16, but that's hardly worth anything on a resume now. Or should I just not use a resume at all? I'm afraid that'll look poor on my account.
What is everyone's favorite online photo album / site?
I'm looking for something easy to use and upload
something that doesn't limit amount of pictures of if it does, you can upload a lot
and one that is free.

Anyone know of any other good ones?

Sorry this is long I don't know how to do it like a link so you can click it without reading the whole thing right here.
Do you create art?
Will you show me some of your work?
For those of you who don't do anything artistically, who are some of your favorite artists?
1. How do you take care of your skin? My skin is really blemished and bumpy and prone to acne. :( I've tried taking care of it by cleansing, toning and moisturising etc but it just doesn't work! :
it's seven in the morning here, and i just found out that i forgot to eat yesterday. as you can imagine, this makes me sort of dizzy and weak today. i don't have any money to go get food right now(i'm at work), but i certainly intend on eating when i get home. but i am a naturally indecisive and weak-willed person, and i can't make up my mind on what to consume. while i would normally just pick the default(saltines and orange juice), i'm going to give you all the option of running my life for me. wtf should i eat?
HALPZ! Who was it yesterday the posted about the zootoo help? I'm totally doing it but I have a few questions.
Should we revive donuts or is that old meme?
Besides OTC medication, what do you do to treat your cold sore?
Do you have a secret ambition that you don't want to tell anyone because you're afraid it'll jinx something?
Since guys get boners to announce that they are horny, my friends and I began discussing what VAGINAS should do. We all agreed that when a girl was horny, it would be best if her vagina opened their lips and issued forth a song of massive power, labia swaying to the beat.
SO, females, if your vagina sang a song when you were sexually aroused, what song would you choose?
9:57 PM 2/20/08 · little excerpt from a longer post
Wednesday I started and finished book #5 of The Dresden Files and I'll probably start #6 before I goto bed. #5 is entitled "Death Masks" and, unlike all of the titles to the other books, I can't figure out why for the life of me. There's no real mention of masks anywhere in the book...although I suppose the transformative nature of the Fallen could be attributed to masks but that's kind of a stretch.
The only mention of masks I noticed anyhwere in the book was in the morgue, to stave off infection from that one body. Does anyone know why it was called "Death Masks" exactly?
have you ever been screwed over by the government?
How many questions do you think you would need to ask/read on TQC to come up with a personality profile of someone?

Some people believe having taxes done at H&R Block or Jackson Hewitt will lead to a smaller tax refund. Do you believe this?
Earlier this month I filed my taxes with H&R Block. I receive over $2000 less then what I was expecting.
I was talking to another employee who made roughly the same amount of money and similar living situation (no kids or married). They went to a place that was not a chain tax office and received about the amount I expected back (but did not receive).
Please give your thoughts on the subject.
What's up with the weather in central Florida during the wintertime? Why is it 80 degrees one day, and 60 the next, then back up to 80 the next?
And why does this always mess with my sinuses? ::has a blinding headache::
Edit: I'm not complaining about the temperature itself, people. I grew up in Ohio, so 60 degree winters are actually quite nice. :) I'm talking about the way the temp yo-yos on a daily basis instead of being relatively consistent.
How's your day going so far? How does your tomorrow look?
okay, okay.... okay, so get this: you are definitely insane, and you suddenly find undeniable proof of it. but... nobody else notices yet. you know you are just one weird provocation away from picking up an axe and going on a killing spree bateman style, but you appear so sane that people would have a hard time believing you if you told them.
do you report yourself? or just hold on and wait for the inevitable violence?
Do bananas last longer if you refrigerate them, or leave them out? The less black spots, the better. :)
In rearranging my room, I discovered that I hadn't given my friend back all of her tarot things. I still have the Emperor. Any ideas on a cosmic significance of this?

Where did you get that preposterous hypothesis?
Did Steve tell you that?
scenario: you're in a class, learning about an event in history that resulted in people dying from getting their heads chopped off by a guillotine. you notice that the person sitting next to you is doodling in their notes. in the margin, they've drawn three pictures: one shows a person with their head underneath a blade from a guillotine. the next shows the person with a sad face as the blade makes it's way down towards their neck. and the last shows the stopped blade and the person's severed head in a pool of blood. all of the doodles are just cartoons and are not graphic or realistic at all.
what do you think of this person? (are they weird? are they just bored? are they funny? do they have issues?)
Do you expect to get ~*serious*~ answers here?
Edit: goddamnit I accidentally clicked disabled, oops.
So when it comes to drawing anything, I suck. Is it possible for a 19 year old to take a few college drawing classes and become good at it? Or is that just a talent you have to be born with?
I have really shaky hands, and when I picture a scene in my head I can easily write about it in detail... I can never get it sketched onto paper, though. It's too fuzzy to draw. I've wanted to be good at this since I was like, 5. I feel so discouraged.
Any words of wisdom?
where do you live & what's the weather been like for the past couple of days?
- i live in north england & it's been sooo cold for the past few days, too cold. something like minus 5 & frost everywhere; it looked like winter wonderland. (except with frost instead of snow. :P) too cold for me :(

I know TQC is not usually the best place for romantic advice but I'm stuck in a situation I haven't been in before.
I've been seeing a man for less than three months and he thinks we're in a relationship though we never clearly defined anything. Anyway after the intial excitement wore off, I realized that I do not find him attractive and generally find him to be a downer and pretty annoying at that. There really is no other reason besides those and i know he's going to ask me for a reason-- what can i say that won't hurt him even more than the intial break-up will (or might)?

My gmail is refusing to load for me this morning: I type in the URL and it doesn't load, and I have the Gmail Notifier add-on for firefox, which isn't working, either. My roommate can access her gmail just fine, and pretty much every other website in the intertubes is working for me. Does anyone know of some sort of proxy kind of site that could allow me to check my email? :) Is your Gmail loading?

To clarify, I'm talking about genre of clothing/style of dress. For example, goth and all it's spin offs, punk, pinup, skater, emo, club clothes, so on and so forth. This list is not all inclusive, feel free to add in whatever comes to mind for you.
Have you ever had a song that you thought had a certain meaning, but later on realized the lyrics meant something completely different?
When I was little, I loved the song "Enola Gay" by OMD because I thought it was just a happy, poppy song, later when I got older I learned that Enola Gay was the name of the plane that dropped the first atomic bomb, and that was what the song was about.
I'm leaving for Turkey tomorrow, and the custom in the markets is to haggle. TQC, the last thing I "haggled" for was my car, so I'm not really an expert.

What would you do with an eighteen-inch-tall stack of pink 8.5" by 11" paper that would otherwise just be thrown away?
ETA: The pink paper already has printing on one side. In fact, it's the full set of my company's books (as amended).
My playstation 2 is dying. This is the second one I've had and since the PS3 is out I'm reluctant to spend another $100 on a used/refurbished PS2. My problem is my playstation won't read about half my games. In the games I own with a lot of load screens (like fighting games) my system will stop and start loading during the load screens turning a 30 second load into 15 minutes. In games with really big stages (like GTA or action games like that) it will stop generating scenery either leaving the character in a sudden blackness or an explosion of polygons. Is there a way to fix this or have it fixed? I bought this system refurbished a couple of years ago so it doesn't have a warranty (not that Sony honors those anyway). Any suggestions on how to fix this?

We're getting a new cat next Tuesday. It's a 8,5-month-old male, which we're going to get neutered the very same day and take it home to heal. It has been in a foster home for a good while now (it's been rescued from Estonia) and it's used to cats and dogs, is very playful and social.
We already have two 2-year-old female cats, which both have been spayed.
I have asked around and done research about how to familiarize the three, and I'm asking TCQ now as well:
Could you give me some good tips with familiarizing a new cat to the old ones, please?
I won a month long promotion at work where the individual top 15% performers in the company win their choice of a prize. (yay!) The prizes are:
1. Portable DVD player with a DVD
2. $200 spa gift certificate
3. IPod Classic 80GB
4. Nintendo Wii game console
5. Resort package for one night that includes dinner and breakfast coupons.
Which would you choose and why?

Some people are just natural born people magnets and are popular no matter what they do. Do you believe that, similarly, some people are just born unlikeable (or at best, just a person people generally ignore and don't care to get to know no matter how hard they try) or do you believe it is ultimately within our control to get people to like us/tolerate us/get along with us?
Basically, do you think it is possible that some people are naturally socially disadvantaged and cannot climb their way very far up the social ladder no matter how hard they try *without* it being their "fault"?
What do you have in your keychain?
me: home key, post box key, key to my parents', two car keys, a mystery key, two magnet keys (to organization house and study hall), an USB stick and a coin-shaped token to a shopping cart.

Someone today on another LJ argued they do not like Obama because his followers seem "fanatical" and "cult-like". I do not think the person was trying to flame, I think it was a serious belief on their part.
Do you think Obama's supports are scary/fanatical/cult-like? More than is normal for a presidential candidate?
Have you ever supported a person or cause but abandoned it because the followers/fans/supporters scared you away?

2. Before hanging up, the Dictionary says, “I define erotic, if you know what I mean. Call me anytime, baby.” Would you hit that?

We were discussing this in class the other day, and I thought of you, TQC.
1. If you were really poor, and you could only buy ramen noodles or a microwave, which would you buy? Feel free to explain your reasoning.
2. Do you think tomorrow will be a good day? Why (not)?
3. Would you rat your 14-year-old brother out to your parents for smoking (cigarettes and weed) and drinking (beer, mostly)? You have evidence, but it has been acquired by ill-begotten means. Your parents already sort of suspect these extracurricular activities anyway, but are in denial about it.
What if he talked about not doing it on a regular basis anymore?
My friend and I have birthdays that are close together, so we threw a joint party. We agreed to go 50-50 on the cost, but she epically stiffed me. I'm fucking furious. She tries to act like nothing happened. We're not children, and this shit is ridiculous. I even secured the party location and transportation for us.
How do I get her to pay up?
All non-serious answers keep in mind that she's about twice the size of me, so beating her up is out.

Sorry if the question seems unclear--let me try to explain:
Isn't it that the heart is the size of the fist? And the waist is twice the size of the neck? I was wondering if there are any more parts of the body which have this kind of relationship. If anybody knows, please tell me. Thanks!
I actually had the same question posted at Yahoo! Answers, but nobody gave me any decent answers. I'm serious here, so please if you don't have anything decent to say, don't say anything at all. Thank you.

What should I wear to my scholarship interview on Saturday? It's snowy and cold, so I'd rather not wear a skirt. :/
Can anyone help me by providing information about the following topics regarding United States government?
What political parties do and how they operate and are organized
What interest groups do and what makes them effective
The role of PACs in the political process
Types of mass media
Impact of media in the public agenda
This is not a homework question; I'm genuinely curious.
Thanks in advance!

How many people live in your household?
(On a monthly basis)
How much do you pay for rent?
Necessities (food, clothes, etc)
If you save, how much per month?
Why do people have a tendency to make a big deal when you say you don't drink/don't like alcohol?
Like, they say "oh, you don't drink? Whhhhy?" As the comedian said, people don't do it for anything else, like "oh, you don't like mayonaise, whhhy??"
also, does anybody know WHO that comedian is? I liked him but I can't recall his name
we have a big closet that we keep our cats' food in (among many other things).
for the past couple of days, both of our cats have been scratching at the closet doors nonstop. they have never done this before.
they are not hungry. they are doing it right now and they JUST ATE less than 2 hours ago.
TQC, how do I make them stop? Seriously?
I already tried putting a bunch of junk in front of the closet door, and smacking their butts. :P neither worked.
EDIT: There is really nowhere else to put the food where they can't get to it in our small apartment.
i have the most-frequently borrowed laptop (read: 90% of the time a laptop is borrowed, it's mine) in my flat. i let my three flatmates use it, but danielle uses it most frequently. she uses the laptop anywhere from 1-2 hours a day on average. my two requirements for laptop borrowing are: 1. use safari. i have passwords, bookmarks, etc on firefox that i don't want people futzing around with. 2. don't download anything, not songs, not pictures, nothing.
i frequently find pictures and files on my desktop, which i always let slide. tonight, danielle borrowed the laptop and used firefox. when i said "you used firefox!" she said "oh, i'm sorry laura, i can't believe i did that" in that why-don't-you-overreact-you-bitch tone.
so, you're an honest group, am i overreacting and being too uptight about people using my browser or am i justified in being annoyed?
How concerned are you about the environment?
Are you concerned about global warming? Do you even believe in it?
If the electric company sends you a letter saying that they're going to shut off your power unless you pay a bill- and its winter and you know that they can't legally shut off your power in the winter (at least in my part of the country, cause its very cold), will they shut off your power anyway unless you call them and tell them you can't cause its illegal? Or are they just sending empty threats?
If you have long-ish hair and you put it up during the day, what do you do with it at night?
for me, if it's in pigtails, I leave it, but if it's up in a pony or a bun, I gotta take it out.
Also, if you have a penis, which pant leg does it hang out in, if you are the non-constricting underwear wearing type? If you don't have a penis but are close with someone with a penis, you can feel free to answer as well.
I was thinking of having some dental work done in Mexico. I can get a root canal and a filling for about $600 instead of $2200+.
Good idea, Y/N? Plz advise.
What cities in Mexico seem dentisty? Should I book with one of those 'dental vacation' travel agencies or make arrangements myself? Have you or someone you know had medical or dental work done in Mexico? How'd it go?
If you're just going to say something about how Mexico is dirty and how they'll probably do it with a rusty icepick then save your breath. Or hold it, even.
1. What do you think of the homeless? Do you feel sorry for them? Do you want to help them? Do you think, for the most part, they got themselves into the situation, or do you think they were victims of unfortunate circumstances? Or do you think it's split 50-50?
2. What is your opinion on federally-funded programs to help the homeless? Does it provide a necessary "safety net" for those less fortunate, or does it simply give people an incentive not to work?
1. I recently learned that the average age of a homeless person in my city is nine years old. This made me realize that the stereotype of homeless people being middle-aged drunks who want a free ride is a myth. I do feel sorry for people without homes--as pretentious as that sounds--and I'm currently looking into volunteer work I can do. But I doubt it's out of an altruistic desire. I'm sick of feeling useless--I've never done actual volunteer work--and I want to feel good about myself.
2. I think federally-funded programs are generally good. I know some privately-funded ones do things like make people who stay attend church services, or say grace before eating. It bothers me, although if they're privately funded, I don't think the right to make the rules should be taken away. But sometimes charity work isn't enough, and even if 99 people out of 100 abuse the system, I think it should exist for that 1% that really needs it. And I think far fewer than 99% are abusing the system.
I hope my questions and answers made sense. This is something I've been thinking about for a while now.
Change fascinates me, especially change in general opinion - what was once thought one way, is today thought another. 'Idiot' and 'moron' were once medical terms; now they're insults, much like 'faggot' is currently going through the wringer of the populace. Instant-ish communication was the New Deal of our age.
My question to you fine folk: what is the super-major change that will hit our generation that will make running water or General Electric look like peanuts, or at least comparable?
my friend says he has a problem with "sitting on his penis." I don't get it. is this common? how does this happen?
What's with these bumps on my legs?
It's kinda like goosebumps...but they're not.
They're still bumpy after I shave.
And after I've exfoliated.
