There used to be a picture on new grounds. It was of a toy kung fu rat. Those annoying things where you squeeze its paw and it sings and dance. The picture of was of one of those standing over the body of a drowned rat making it look like the kung fu rat pwned the drowned rat. My google skills are failing me. Can someone find this picture for me?

I went to Sears today and found a nice fragrance I really liked, but it turns out I accidentally bought the women's version. Do you think it's possible to take it back even though I've already opened it and used it (even if it's just once) ?

I'm so dumb :(

Why do I continue to check customers_suck? Before I even click the friggin link, I know that all I'll find is people freaking out over the slightest racial adjectives, posting random things they saw happen, or, even worse, the "I don't work CS anymore, but fifteen years ago THIS happened!" stories.

Hypothetical: You attend a pretty conservative, private Catholic college. You believe all that the Catholic Church professes, including the "right to life" for unborn children. A professor states that he is voting for Hillary Clinton in the next election. Would you be mad/upset/other?

Another question because my tv picture post has slowed down.

I love absinthe, but my lil bro doesn't like being around me when I'm drinking it because I tend to turn loud & obnoxious (probably because I drink Fairy Bombs, which is absinthe with energy drink).
So I need another alcoholic beverage. I love bourbon but am getting sick of it at the moment. I hate rum & scotch & most pre-mixed vodkas are too fruity/sweet for my liking. I also dislike wine/champagne. Oh, plus I usually only drink beer when I'm in the mood for it.

So can anyone recommend a good drink that's reasonably priced?

there's a song I've been hearing on the radio that I kinda liked. it was pretty corny & stupid, but really catchy. I didn't know the name of the artist until just now when I searched for the song. it's by Miley Cyrus, aka Hannah Montana.

TQC, when is the last time you found yourself liking something embarassing? what song is your current guilty pleasure?

My dog *see icon* is old.. he's ten and a half.

He's gotten quite stupid over the last few months, he just stares at the floor. Not a big problem. He also seems to poop in his sleep. We have tile floors, so, while that is just nasty and a pita, its not THAT big of a deal.

Here's the problem...

HE'S LICKING UP HIS OWN PEE!!

he has a water bowl in the house and one outside, both are always full. He pees outside, then licks it up.

my question is this: WTF??????

all his bloodwork came back FINE... so, thequestionclub, what's wrong with my dog?

House parties

I live next door to a newly divorced woman in her 40s and her 3-year-old daughter (sometimes). For the past 3 hours, all I've been hearing is the pounding of bass from her stereo. It's only 6pm, and when this happens, it stops before it gets too late, so it's not annoying me.

My question is... what exactly are those two partying so heavily about?

You work at a busy retail store in the mall. You also wear glasses daily, and have no extra pairs/contacts. Just humor me here for a minute.

One day, you accidentally step on your single pair and break them. Is this grounds for calling into work? What if you're calling off in order to have somebody pick you up to buy a new set?

My roommate (Carmen) and i brought a friend (Jessica) to a party thrown by a boy that Carmen has ongoing history with, and is actually obsessed with. When it was time to leave, Jessica refused to get in the taxi and ended up staying at the boy's house. This morning, I find out she hooked up with the boy.

I cannot tell Carmen because she is very dramatic and would (1) leave Jessica nasty messages, (2) cry like a baby for a week or so, and (3) never ever want Jessica anywhere near her again.

HELP ME:

I want to send the boy a message, telling him NOT TO TELL CARMEN at all costs what went down. But also, I'd like to reprimand him for being so insensitive - he knows she really likes him, and he's always after her to hook up. (to which she has more than once acquiesced)

Can I do this? or is it essentially none of my business?

I'm at a loss here, I rarely deal with issues like this.
Thanks guys.

A few weeks ago I'd posted an email from a book publisher that was more or less a maybe depending if I could rewrite it. I emailed back with yadda yadda and today I recieved an email that told me to rewrite a few chapters of my manuscript with a different PoV structure and then to email it to him. I replied that I'd do it in a couple weeks when I'm on Spring Break and asked if I should send it to that email address. He replied 'sounds good' and to use the email address he was using.


1) Should I be excited, and if so, how much?

2) How should I celebrate tonight? I have to go watch a movie on child soldiers later but I'm free afterwards.

I'm an Early Childhood Education major, and there are three courses mandatory (besides the core curriculum) at my university before we get accepted into the cohort as a junior. (the cohort is just when you sell your soul to the school of education and never look back). I've taken one of these three courses with no issues, but I'm in the second one now, and the amount of idiocy astounds me.

1. When replying to "What do you want to teach?", this one girl raises her hand and says "I want to teach Kindergarten, because it's the easiest grade to teach and the kids are cute and all you have to do is color and make bulletin boards and man, it's just really easy!". About ten other girls in the room put their hands down because they had the same exact response. What is it about Kindergarten that seems so easy? Does nobody understand that Kindergarten is quite possibly the hardest grade to teach?

2. We were discussing discrimination and racism in the classroom when I heard this gem. "I know that, like, black people have their own month and stuff? I was thinking maybe we could, like, give every race their own month? But white people could, like, have like two, because they've, like, done more stuff than any other race?" Is this girl going to die early in a pit of fire along with the others in the room who agreed vehemently?

3. You have to apply for the cohort in order to start officially student teaching. There are about 40 spots and usually about 120 applicants. Will half of these girls ever possibly make it in? I used to be afraid the chances of my being accepted were low, but I'm not so sure any more.

I'm a sophomore in college.  I only have 3 somewhat close friends here.  If I stay in all weekend, I feel like maybe I'm missing something.  If I got out (like I have for the past two nights) I just want to be home because I don't feel like I fit in with people I meet.. and I feel worse and more lonely for the next few days.  The only time I am truly happy is when I go home or my parents come here. 

1.  Is it okay, or even preferable, that I remain standoffish and go through college without the typical experiences, or should I try to force myself to make more friends? 

2.  How was the college social experience for you?

What would you think if someone said that they felt really safe whenever they saw you smile or laugh?

I know it's not good to make generalizations, but I know a guy who is in his late 20s that is very concerned with his tummy/spare tire (which must be minimal because I can't see anything) and says his hair is thin (but it is very soft!) and he always wears a hat because of it. What is up with that? I mean, obviously low self-esteem but it just seems so strange to me because I'm not used to guys being so obsessed with things like this.

Beanie babies.

My mother has a habit of getting me "cute" things that I have absolutely no use for, but I never have the heart to get rid of them. However, I've been moving around a lot the last couple of years and am moving again next week, so this business of moving cute crap that I don't even want has got to end.

One thing that I found and decided to list on Craigslist was this 10th Anniversary Beanie Baby. I left it as a "make an offer" ad, but to be honest I have no idea what this thing might be worth. I was never a Ty collector and looked around on Google a bit, but I figured that someone here might have an idea of what would be a reasonable price to take.

Any suggestions?

Edit: I found this listing on Ebay, so maybe it's not worth anything. IDK.

hand pain

In recent weeks I have been volunteering at a local park to help clear trails on Saturday mornings. It's not every Saturday, but is most Saturdays since the New Year. The trail work involves alot of hacking palmettos and other foilage with a machette.

A reoccuring problem is pain in my right hand after I've been hacking away for awhile (yes, I am right handed). I am wearing gloves. It's overall cramping and pain in the hand especially the fingers. It mostly goes away later in the day. This morning I did trail work for about 3 hours and the only part of my hand that hurts is my middle finger between the knuckle and the first joint.

Any idea what the problem might be (arthritis? but I'm only 26...) or how to prevent the pain from occuring?

For Christmas, I got  laptop with Windows Vista and I am having issues watching some videos on it :( Any video that I have taped with my digital camera (.mpg format) won't play correctly. In Windows Media Player, it will show the video as a few seconds long and after it plays for the few seconds, the video stops but the audio will continue. I know there is nothing wrong with the video, because if I upload it to youtube I can watch the whole thing, but I really want to be able to watch it on my computer. I have only noticed this problem with mpg videos...I have some tv shows that I have transferred from tivo and I can watch those just fine.

Per Dane Cook, every group of friends has a friend that they don't like -- a "Karen."  If you don't think that's true, then you're the friend that nobody likes.

1) Does your group have a Karen or are you the Karen?

2) Why are they (or you) in the group?

3) When you use the restroom, do you sing to let yourself know that you have washed your hands long enough or do you just count to 30?
3b) If you sing, what do you sing?

4) If you have AIM, do you allow people to see when you're typing or did you disable that feature?

I have a cavity! Ugh. I've never had one before, so I'm scared.

Will you share your horror stories of getting a cavity filled so I can expect the worst? Or, is getting a cavity filled not bad at all?

US travel

I was talking with my roommate today about traveling around the US cheaply, and she mentioned a bus service that offers ridiculously cheap fair. The catch is that it's usually at obscure hours/days like last minute tickets they're trying to get rid of. She didn't know the name of the company, she thinks it was something like ___bus. Does anyone know what company this is?

If not, what's the cheapest way to travel around the US. I was thinking the train like Amtrack or buses.

Thanks.

After reading a recent post regarding teachers, it seems that I'm not alone in my experiences with creepy teachers.

So TQC, will you tell me some stories about your encounters with creepy/inappropriate teachers?

Volunteering

Have you ever volunteered at a museum or anywhere else? What did you do? What was it like?

I was thinking about volunteering at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology this summer for some extra learnings and to beef up the resume. I was wondering what peoples experiences were like.

Recently someone made a post about comedians (I already spent 15 minutes looking for it, but couldn't find it. No its not the post from 1-22) and almost everyone commented to the post recommending they listen to the same guy. I wanted to go youtube him but now I can't find the post.

Does anyone know what post I'm talking about / know the guy they mentioned?

If not, recommend a good male comedian and perhaps it will be him.

Do you think it's a big deal if parents swear around their young children (under 10)?
Do you swear in front of your parents?
What are you favorite/most used "replacement" curses? Like 'holy cow,' 'oh my gosh,' etc.

You can order pizza with a credit card. How does that work? Is it handled when the pizza's delivered or if you pick that option do you just pay online through the website like any other transaction?

Edit: Because I forgot to ask before, what about the tip? How does that work?

Should I go to Taco Bell/Sheetz and get crappy fast food?

I already had dinner, but now we have a friend over and we're drinking and I kinda want a taco.  Or french fries.

ETA: It's not which one I should go to, but should I go at all?

ETA:  Gone, and back!  Taco Bell, got chalupas, am satisfactorily greased out.   And also, I'd only had one beer when I left.  I wanted to go get food before I got all drunk.
