Shocking ?s

1) Have you ever had an electronic device ruined due to a power surge? If yes, what was it?

2) If you feel like you're going to get shocked when you touch something (ex. a metal door handle), do you try to touch it really fast to get rid of the static discharge or do you just touch it however you normally would?

3) What's the last thing that shocked you?

TQC, I just worked my first full shift at the coffee shop!
I had to sample coffees all day!
Having never drank coffee in my life before, and drinking about 20 ounces in whole starting at 2 and ending at 11, I'm a little wired.

If you were hyper like I am right now, what would you do at 12:20 at night, with no car and 3 bucks?

Any good survival stories out there you'd like to share? Please?

Also, should I get my boyfriend's mother a Mother's Day gift or card? I know my boyfriend probably won't end up doing anything because he's heartless absent minded about these things, so maybe splitting something?

I was told the body can only metabolize up to 30 grams of protein at a time, but I just read a work out diet that claims someone that weighs 200 lbs should eat 340 grams of protein in 5-6 meals a day. If the body can't metabolize the protein, what's the point in having the extra protein?

is there anywhere online where i could watch Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson in full?
i looked on the CBS website, but didn't find full episodes. i am so entertained by this show and the man.
*EDIT* I'm not looking to download or otherwise get information on 'warez' or BitTorrent stuff. More like, where are they hiding the streaming kind of stuff that they already have on the website. i know that programs like QVC air online as well some, I didn't know if maybe they did that with CBS shows.

Did you feel that Earthquake at 1:00am? If so, where abouts are you on the isle?
I'm right on the epicentre in Humberside, it was 4.7 on the Richter Scale. Which basically means so powerful that cup fell over somewhere in Birmingham. Scary stuff. It is strange though that the majority of the country seems to have felt the same earthquake.

i'm the college yearbook editor, and I hired a couple gals to work for me. They get paid a bit.

One hasn't been doing her job, so I decided to fire her. Problem: she hasn't been responding to emails or phone calls or facebook messages. I finally emailed my boss to let him know what I was doing (figured I should do that). He said he'd take care of firing her for me! Hooray!

Ze kvestion:
How much will it suck for her to hear that she's fired on her birthday? Before she became queen of not responding she was excited about being on the yearbook staff, and its even on her facebook profile.

Have you gotten fired on an important day like that or Christmas or something? How did you feel?

If i'm still asleep I expect my housemates to STFU even if it's in the middle of the afternoon or a weekend, but I get ill if I don't sleep.. and then i germ all over them and they get ill too.. so it's in everyone's interest to accomodate me really.

What's your favourite birthday present you've ever gotten?
For my 18th birthday, my parents and friends threw me a surprise party (but they boffed it up and it wasn't really a surprise). And this year's will be pretty good, if my parents follow through with it. They're going to pay to get my cat neutered, so they say. My girlfriend also gave me really awesome owl figurines for my birthday last year.

Worst birthday present?
I don't really remember a specific bad present, but I'm always getting makeup for gifts and it blows.

What do you call your grandparents?  What's the story behind it?

Do the other grandchildren call them that?

     I call my maternal grandparents Wee Wee and Paw.  Wee Wee is a bastardization of the name Granny, which is what my mother wanted me to call my grandmother but my grandmother thought I was saying Wee Wee and thought it was cute and wanted me to call her that.  It used to embarrass me so bad but  I'm over it now.  Paw I think is from my oldest cousin who calls him Paw Paw.  She calls our grandmother MeMaw.  Then our youngest cousins call them Grandma and Grandpa.  So I think it's odd that the grandchildren from my grandparents 3 children all call them something different. 

Paternal grandparents are Grandma Pam and Grandpa Ross, which is kind of weird since they are the only ones I call Grandma and Grandpa.

Which songs?
Let's get it started!

Weird hypothetical* situation

Say you were dating a guy with a job that had him traveling for about eight months out of the year. For several years, he and his best friend (another guy) worked together and traveled together. Then his best friend got transferred to another division. So after years of being together all the time, they're suddenly not. Since they still work for the same company they've gotten into the habit of calling each other almost every day and going over what happened at work. (EDIT: He calls you every day too.) Now assume, that because of the nature of the job, your boyfriend only has an hour or so, right at the end of the day when he can actually call and talk to people.

Would you prefer he call you first and then his best friend, because he just can't wait any longer to talk to you? Or would you prefer he call his best friend first and get the work talk out of the way, and then call and fall asleep talking to you?





*Seriously hypothetical, I don't even have a boyfriend.

Political question! *cue lights and sirens*

Just out of curiosity spurred by current events, I did some research on Barack "Hussein" Obama...

Firstly, he's a "junior", so his dad's middle name is Hussein, too. Secondly, he was born in 1961, and Saddam Hussein didn't "take office" until 1979.

So, TQC, what's the big deal?

What's your middle name? And do people make fun of it?

Mine's Beth. I have a feeling I was named after a Kiss ballad. Woe.

Have there been any strangely tragic deaths in your family?

Four in mine that I know of.  My uncles George and Keith, and my cousins Annie-Ruth and Mary. 

George was accidentally shot in the head when he was 13.  He lived on for a few days before dying.

Keith died in a fire caused by an electric blanket at 24.  At least that's what I was always told.  When I was older my mother told me that Keith's ex-wife, told people she shot him and then set his trailer on fire.  Which makes sense because his wife was crazy, and it was the middle of the summer so why would he have an electric blanket.

Annie-Ruth and a friend had picked up two boys who had been broken down on the side of the road.  She was sitting on a draw bridge that was up with a full container of gas in the trunk.  A drunk crashed into the back of her car and the gas caught on fire.  Everyone made it out, but she was burned very badly and died a few days later. 

Mary was raped and murdered.

Alcoholism

I have SOME experience with alcoholics/addicts, but not enough to answer this question:

I know an alcoholic who is supposedly trying to get her act together. She claims that going to 1-2 counselling sessions a week will be enough for her to kick her habit. As far as I know, she's not attending any AA meetings.

Is that REALLY enough?!

I was always under the impression that in order to kick the habit, one would have to go to a rehab facility. Or at least go to a therapist more than one or two times a week.

This has been an issue for her for YEARS and she's been to the hospital multiple times for it. Of course, I'm really worried about her, but I'm washing my hands of it for now. Keeping my mouth shut and opinions to myself and only giving them when outright asked.

(If it matters, she's in her late 30s.)

A good friend of your SO is getting married, and your SO plans on attending a big pre-wedding, celebratory Vegas party, where all friends of the couple are invited. You can't make it due to work or something. You find out that the ex will also attend, and you discover, is newly single. How would you deal? Be honest

Follow-up and another question!

I posted this earlier today.

To clarify - The friend I mentioned is my boyfriend's older sister. His family asks me for advice on how to deal with this because, due to one of my aunts, I have the resources on hand to help out with her addiction. My aunt is a nun and knows many people in our area who specialize in treating addiction. My boyfriend, of course, comes to me for support when shit is hitting the fan. I am desperately trying to be supportive for EVERYONE involved. But I guess I got upset because she always promises that she's going to therapy and then they find out later on the road that she either quit or never went in the first place.

So yeah, there you go.

My questions:

1. When was the last time you felt like a dumbass?
2. When was the last time you totally overreacted - either online or IRL?
3. When the shit hits the fan, who do you turn to for support?

Thanks and sorry for being Ms. Uber-Bitch earlier. I know yous guys were only trying to help.

Calorie absorption

Stuck In a Dilemma

My dear TQC, I have another question, one of which I have been going back and forth a lot and I have decided to let you beautifully intelligent people to help me figure out what to do.


Long story short - I had my ex-boyfriend arrested for a number of abuse related incidents, he plead non-guilty to everything (because he is a prick) and I (being the victim in the case) got subpoenaed to testify against him. However, I am in Arizona, this all happened in Colorado. The trial is on April 01 (I know how ironic) and that is a Tuesday. I have classes, a test and work that day that I really can't afford to miss for two days (because I would fly out the Friday before hand so I could spend some time with my mom and then I would leave Tuesday night after the trial). I called the DA and the Witness Protection people and they told me that I need not worry about coming out there to testify because it would be a hassle for me. But thinking about it, how strong would the case really be if the victim didn't show to testify right?

So my question, do I stay in Arizona, go to class take my test and not miss any work or do I go to Colorado to testify against my abusive ex-boyfriend in hopes that it will simply make the judge happy?

Non-serious answers are always welcome.

Mac users, I'm having some issues. I'm new to Mac, so forgive me for asking potentially stupid questions.

How to I get the blue ring around restart in this [http://img352.imageshack.us/img352/7074/94836470kj6.png] picture to go away? It's been that way for about a week, and appeared after I pushed tab to move from restart to shut down. It's annoying as crap and I've had no luck with making it go away. And I just noticed that this happens with all dialog boxes with more than one option...

Secondly, I turned on stickykeys a few days ago with the shift key, and I assumed it would shut off when I shut down the computer, as it does with Windows. Well, those stupid symbols still show up every time I push shift/command, and they are also annoying.

Can you help?

 Aside from being alone, what makes you feel lonely?

What do you do when you feel lonley?

Do you think it creates artistic vision, a la Morrissey, who claims his whole career is based on chronic lonliness?
    Edit - I don't want to make this about Morrissey, just using him as an example.

Icon

Does anyone know where I can find the animated icon of the one I am currently using in this post? Harold of Harold and Maude gagging on his blood?

Many thanks in advance.

Have you ever used Tiger Balm? Do you like it?

birth control.

On average, how long after the date of purchase do your/your partners birth control pills expire? Weeks, months?

What type of birth control pills do you use? Do you like them?
Have you tried any other methods and how did you feel about them?

Mostly curiosity.

Ok, so I know that banks have to follow all kinds of federal guidelines so that they know your not a terrorist trying to get a debit card or something -_-.

But lets say I want to open a bank account under a fake name. Is there any way to do it?

1) Girls... have you ever been with a guy(serious relationship) who didn't want to know how many guys you've slept with?
2) Guys... have you ever been with a girl (serious relationship) and didn't want to know how many guys shes slept with?

Every guy I've ever dated has always wanted to know at some point in our relationship and my current boyfriend doesn't care, at all. I asked him if he was curious and he was like "No"... is this normal, TQC?
