Somehow I got myself into this situation where I really need a beaver (animal). This beaver should be freshly dead, or even alive and under $200. I don't know where to get one, and I need it in less than six months.
1. Where can I find a dead beaver?
2. Are there any laws against someone mailing me a dead beaver?
Alright TQC, my friend and i wanna go to Coachella super bad. I have the money, she doesn't. Now, I was merely wondering if I made a donation cup, would anyone truly donate one dollar (or mere pennies even) to it.
I am completely seriously about this too.
So, my question, Would you donate any money to help my friend go to Coachella?
You're on a road trip with friends. You're sitting in the back seat. Your car is gridlocked on the freeway and hasn't moved in 10 minutes. Suddenly, you have to go to poop really bad. Your lunch isn't agreeing with you. You bring this up to the friend driving, and she says that under the back seat is a toilet, and you should just go there. What do you do?
Go ahead and use the bathroom under the seat. Nature calls
Hold it as long as I can
Hop out of the car and poop on the road, right next to the car
It's undignified to poop in my friend's car in front of all my friends. I poop out the window instead
Run to the shoulder, hop a fence and squat behind a tree, and hope traffic doesn't pick up
You purchase a used car with an Indipod. You're on a road trip with friends and you're running really behind. If you don't drive 100 miles in the next 45 minutes, you're going to miss the last ferry (to something cool. Consult the area near you for cool ferry-related details). No time to stop. Suddenly, your friend in the back seat says that she has to pee and if she could use your portable toilet. Do you let her?
What do I need to know before I get a cat? Tell me everything you know about owning cats! I want to know everything from feeding them, litter boxes, scratching, hairballs, etc...
My friend's have a cat who is about to pop any moment (not their fault, they acquired her already preggo) and I'm trying to convince the hubby that we should take one of the kittehs! He is far from a cat person so this is going to be quite the chore.... At least I got him to agree to SEE the kittens first before making a final decision... So help me out people!!!
I have the most curious sensation in my stomach, especially concentrated in the lower region. It feels much like I am about to explode with diarrhea; however, I continually fart every minute as I have for some time (it's what woke me up actually) and my body has no desire to shit at all. Dr. LJ, why does it feel like everything below my stomach is queasy and giving me these gut-wrenching farts?
Otherwise: How are you?! What woke you up this morning? Momma's Chicken Noodle Soup, would you like to have another bowl?
Can you give me some ideas on what to do with a 4 hour layover at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky airport? So far, all I can think of is pacing back and fourth, grabbing dinner, pacing some more, stare out the windows and pace some more.
I have a FWB who is not certain that she ever wants to be married. However, she would like to have kids one day. Much to my surprise, she recently asked if I would impregnate her when she's ready (she's thinking 3-4 years from now).
1) How would you feel about such a request? Flattered? Creeped out? Somewhere in between? Other?
2) Have you or would you ever donate eggs or sperm anonymously (i.e. to a "bank")?
3) Assuming all the legal terms, conditions and documentation are solid and to your liking, would you ever donate to a known party, or a friend?
I live on a very busy street, in a very busy city. Every morning I am woken up with sirens and kids screaming their lungs out at each other. On average, I think I honestly hear 20+ car alarms go off in a day. I'm almost positive that I hear sirens 40+ times a day. What is the noise like where you live? There is a car outside that has had its horn blasted for at least 10 minutes straight. Should I go outside with a bat and a wok (for protection) and beat the idiot who is doing this?
I can't access PowerPoint from my computer & I need to read a chapter outline my teacher posted. If there's a way you could convert it to a WordPad document & send it to me, I'd be forever indebted to you.
The website is: sjrcc.edu/~jenniferwilliams. It's the Abnormal Psych class & there's a outline link & I need Chapter 7 (Part 2). My test is in the next three hours, so I'm studying/cramming in that time.
I've recently acquired a car for free (!!!). It runs great and is in excellent condition but the problem is with its looks. It has a full-blown body kit on it and to be quite honest, is not my taste at all. I prefer plain, stock cars. Also, it is a NEON BLUE. I've been driving it around for a month and, since I didn't have to pay any money towards it, I have the money to alter it to my liking. I was thinking about maybe just getting a new paint job, possibly black. It just looks ridiculous the way it is lol.
WHAT would you do to with this car (besides ditch it and run far away)?
I have a water cooler that I got as a gift. I don't have the orignal packaging or the receipt. Yesterday when I went to put the water bottle in the top of the cooler the plastic piece snapped. It was purchased from Wal-Mart. Do you think they will let me exchange it?
Has anyone had any luck with male bettas in tanks with other fish?
I know, sounds dumb. But I've seen a few tanks at stores with, for instance, a male betta and a few goldfish.
I have a 20-gallon with a pleco(5ish inches), 3 female cherry barbs, a chinese algae eater(3ish inches), and a few ghost shrimp. So there's plenty of room. I imagine it would depend on there being, say, lots of plants for the betta to make a clearly defined "my territory" area with, and on how the individual fish feel about it?
So it's me and the bf's two-year anniversary tomorrow and as far as I know, we're not planning on actually doing anything since we're apart (think about 600 miles apart) and giving each other gifts over break next week anyway. Any ideas so the day would feel more special? And sadly, no, cyber/phone sex isn't an option due to various difficulties at the moment.
TQC: I have taster's choice coffee, earl grey, chai, hot chocolate, an apple (I'm not hungry though), and access to a vending machine that sells diet pepsi/pepsi/mt. dew/diet dew/cherry pepsi/diet sweetened green tea.
What's something you like or a hobby you have that you love so much you lose respect for people who don't have your same opinions? Or vice versa, something you hate so much that if another person likes it, it affects your judgment of said person.
Sorry if this has already been posted, yesterday there was a question asked about whether or not you would show up to a TQC meet-up and some people commented saying that they hesitated to even get a group together because they didn't know if anybody would show up..
SO, to make it easier for you guys & if you want to participate.. will you comment with your location and see if anybody is serious about hanging out and what not?
I am going to be in Dallas this weekend and I am for sure getting together with stakingaclaim! shinga, WTF MAN :*(! Is anyone else in the area that might want to get together for a few hours or at least just drop on by and say hey?
I'll be in SD next month, and I am for sure getting together with latenightdrives and perhaps macabre, i'm so excited.. how should I greet both ladies?
my computer is ridiculously slow lately, and i asked a friend to help me fix it. he has a lot of computers (roughly 13) and he is very smart about them.
however, when i mentioned that he'd be fixing my comptuer to other people, the reaction was "OMG DON'T LET JOHN TOUCH YOUR COMPUTER HE JUST LIKES TO TAKE THINGS APART DON'T LET HIM HE WILL RUIN IT!!!11!!"
soooo, what do i do about this? i trust john for the most part and he is getting some parts to seriously help me out, but i don't want my computer to be good for only parts after he touches it.
what do i do, TQC?
secondly, what do you put in your chicken salad? me: miracle whip (mayo blowsss), celery, scallions, garlic salt, chicken, salt and pepper to taste.
1. do you/have you ever gotten fake nails? are they a pain in the ass to keep up with? how often do you have to get them filled? i really want to stop biting my nails/putting my fingers in my mouth all the time and i'm feeling like getting acrylics may be the only option.
2. what publications do you subscribe to? i just got a subscription to bark today and i'm totally excited because i'm a crazy dog lady.
I took my shih-tzu to the groomer today and just picked him up a few minutes ago. They gave him the usual puppy cut, but trimmed the hair on his face freakishly short. He looks...fairly ridiculous. My question: I know it's bad to trim a cat's whiskers, but how does a dog feel about it? He's 12, and nearly blind in one eye.
So today my ipod stopped playing music. It wasn't dropped, heated, left in the cold, or anything. It turns on, all the menus and volume stuff works correctly, and when you select songs it says it's playing them.... but no music is coming into my ears. I've tried resetting it, different headphones, even plugging it into the aux cable for my car stereo. Does anyone know what's wrong or how to fix it???
my boyfriend thinks i should be a vet. i am planning on being a cop. however, i do know i am best with animals. i know a bunch about most animals, but i don't want to have their lives be in my hands, that is my only issue. i have a few questions with this, what are some other animal careers that i won't be struggling to keep? do you have any information for said careers, like how i can start out or what degrees i would need? if i am going to be a cop, is it not that much harder to be a vet? not smarts wise but gore wise? are there any really good vet/other animal career colleges/programs in california, preferably near the bay area? i have a bit passion for animals, and i want to help them. but i also have wanted to be a cop since i was 6 or 7.. what should i do? please help me, TQC, i have been really curious about animal oriented careers since my boyfriend mentioned it. and he is very much so not the first one to tell me i should be in the vet field. friends, family, even a few co-workers at petco have all said it. any advice, or anything of the sort would be helpful and i give you thanks in advance.
I have an assignment in Psychology meant to increase understanding and sensitivity for the mentally ill. The assignment is this: We have to perform an act/s of deviance or a behavior that brings us to the point of discomfort with those around us. It can't be illegal or violent. What should I do?
tl;dr I have to act strange to make people uncomfortable. What's something funny or interesting I could do?
I saw this Claritin commercial where the guy was a sculptor, and is all "omg i sneeze and this guy could lose his nose!". I can't say I've ever been truly surprised by a sneeze, I always know a little in advance.
2. What kind of pets do you have? two dogs and a gaggle of wild ducks that nest on our shore
3. do you have a job directly related to your degree, or a job that accepts any two (or four, six, w/e) year degree?
What should I do to prepare for having to fight an army by myself with my highschool buddies? What about preparing to live in the woods for months and months until the US can conquer over the invasion????
a superhero with magical powers ( a la Superman) a superhero with powerful strength and gadgets (a la Batman) or a superspy who kicks ass w/out superhuman strengths or magic? (a la James Bond... guess he has gadgets too)
I ask a lot of superhero questions.
(edited to take into consideration la_jolie_vie 's opinion, though I think Batman is pretty super :-D)
I was in therapy a few years back. I didn't like the experience at all and faked feeling better so I could end the treatment. Now all of the same problems I was dealing with then are coming back and it's starting to get a little overwhelming. I'm thinking of trying therapy again but I definitely don't want to go back to my old doctor, and I'm not sure what I'm looking for in a new one. Can you give me any tips for hunting down a new doctor? How about avoiding the ones who just murder their patients for fun?
My last doctor was probably about my grandma's age and just couldn't seem to relate to me on any level, and had this really annoying habit of trivializing the little neuroses I had that were really stressing me out. Like "Hey, instead of pulling out your hair, why not just snap a rubber band on your arm?! :D" It wasn't that I wasn't looking for help, but her suggestions were fucking stupid.
I am going to pull an all nighter tonight to finish some school work. When was the last time you pulled an all-nighter? Is it easy for you to do? How are you the next day? What sort of fruit should I add to my tea for flavor? Anyone hoping for a snow day tomorrow? What song do you have stuck in your head right now?
You're in a public place where people tend to bring laptops (internet cafe, restaurant, bookstore etc) You see somebody come in and set up their laptop. A while later they get up to do something-leaving their laptop on the table. While they're still away somebody else comes along and goes to take it. The person you know it belongs to is nowhere in sight. What do you do?
Please keep in mind when voting that this shop will be in a mainly blue collar town, so we're not catering to the rich/yuppie/etc crowd. Just your basic neighborhood pizza shop. No college kids, just a kinda poor, but mainly middle class, down to earth city. For example, some of the pizza shops around are named: Meditteranean, Benedetti's(Bobo's), Pizzeria Eros, Angelina's, Pizza Etc.,nd Giovanni's, to name a few.
Also, excuse some of the incredibly lame names...I just listed everything my family has suggested thus far, hah. (if you're wondering about all the Bubba type names, it's my mom's nickname for my brother and I)
What does adding banana do to baked goods? I want to add some to a low-fat vanilla cupcakes. Will the banana make them more moist or less moist? What about density? They can be more muffin-y than cupcake-y, but I'm starting with a cupcake recipe. The original recipe is vegan and they will have to stay vegan if that makes a difference. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Also if I am successful what should I top them with? I'm trying to keep this relatively low-fat. Just sprinkle some powered sugar? Sliced banana? Hmm?
when was the last time you felt a strong impulsive urge to do something totally random? did you do it? why or why not? what was the result?
for the past week or so I've seriously been thinking about randomly buying a plane ticket to NYC and just staying up there for a week. I don't have a job but I have enough money to cover it. I've been sitting here stuck in my house day after day and I'm just itching to take a chance and go up there to just get away and have a change of scenery. I have a friend I *maybe* could stay with but it's iffy..
btw does anyone know of a cheap place to stay in Manhattan?? if I do decide to do this.
Ever since I did a system restore on my computer when I turn on my computer and AIM comes it it always has the "save screen name/passowrd and auto sign-in boxes checked. I've tried to just put in my info and uncheck the boxes-doesn't seem to work, how the hell to I make it stop?
You're stopped at an intersection and don't notice the light turn from red to green. The guy behind you gets impatient and honks. (to clarify, I don't mean like a 'hey, the lights green!' kind of reminder honk, the person is LAYING ON THEIR HORN and being a douche about it)
Do you: A) drive through the intersection embarrassed B) sit at the light and wait a little longer just to piss him off C) flip the guy off D) something else you'll mention in comments
Is there any way to get rid of all the code-crap at the top of emails using Thunderbird? It takes up nearly half the page if I need to print an email, or it shows up if I need to forward something to someone - I can delete it from forwards, but not from printing. I've been through the Help file but can't seem to find anything. It's paths and to/from code info, Received: Date: Message-Id: Subject: X-MaxCode-Template: To: From: X-Email-Type-Id: X-XPT-XSL-Name: Content-Type: MIME-Version: and all of this kind of crap.
A while back, I went to a website where I was supposed to pick and choose from 50+ pictures of boys, and at the end it made them into one composite to show me what an average of what I find attractive is. Any one know what website this is?
edit: I think I found it after trying to google it for the 50th time, and weeding through one of my friend's archived entries.
Anyone else here with a fear of flying? Or anyone here who's had it, but got over it? If so, how did you get over it? Even though I know it's really irrational, I get really freaked out, especially on takeoff. And my life requires me to fly a fair amount, so this is something I need to get over. I'm not afraid of terrorism or anything, it's more a mechanical-failure/plunging-from-the-sky kind of fear.
Your parents/SO/friend are/is very religious (insert whatever religion you'd like that you think would fit here) and you are not.
They want you to go to church with them (one can assume to become a follower of their religion).
Do you: a) Comply and go, but let them know you're just doing it for them. b) Comply and go, and pretend to become a follower - at least when you kick the bucket, they'll be relieved. c) No way. I'll go out in my own style, even though it'll break my parents'/SO's/friend's heart(s).
Or, something else entirely?
(Question is in no way meant to offend any ill or religious folks - I'm just curious.)
You have a friend who is involved in a relationship you strongly oppose. At what point does this start to negatively impact the friendship? Would it even cut off the friendship entirely (either permanently or at least for the duration of the relationship)?
Would your opinion change if it was aimed at Blacks rather than Asians?
What do you think the student is trying to say with this?
What do you think the administration should do to this student, if anything?
I'm in a High Needs Education Seminar course, and our professor brought this article into class today. We got into a very heated debate about the article, and I was wondering what others thought about it.
I hate when you make a random purchase from a website, only to later be flooded with offers from that site for this product or that, this sale or that coupon... You never really intend to buy anything more from that site, but oho here comes the spam. Then when you try to unsubscribe, you have to "log in" and answer a bazillion questions. But you don't remember your password, so damnit!
I want to paint my nails black and white, every other finger a different color. In doing that, is that childish or ugly? Or what if one hand was all white, the other all black? I don't want one color for the entire ten, and I'd rather have nothing on my nails than make it look stupid.
are there any movie/tv parents that remind you of your own parents? why?
my mother reminds me a lot of the mother in The Sixth Sense (played by Toni Collette). she's got red hair and she also has a very similar personality as her (tough but very sensitive and kind of broken hearted)
Question Club, I am flying out to meet a penpal for the first time who is on leave from Iraq. He and I have become quite close in the past few months, and I am looking forward to meeting him. I have no friends in the city where he lives. My mom is against my going-- the name 'Boston Strangler' came up in conversation.
Semi-pertinent stats: I'm 34. He's 41. Nothing he's said to me has set off a red flag for my personal safety. It's a weekend trip.
What is the likelihood that my body will never be found? Or am I going to enjoy my trip just as much as I think I am?
What's the stupidest thing you've heard someone say today?
The fiance of my roommate, who you may recall from THIS post, after seeing a commercial for a Barack Obama interview said, "Damn. There ain't no way I'm votin' for that Muslim ni*ga. If he be President and shit, we ain't gonna get away from the terrorists and shit. How you think that's gonna help...*trails off*."
