I just came home from 7 days in Turkey.
I brought 2 pairs of pants and 2 shirts with me. I wore them all day, all the time, with no washer and dryer and only sporadic access to a shower.

Tell me TQC, what's the dirtiest you've ever been?

PC Games

What are some good PC games [other than the super-obvious like Orange Box and WOW] that have come out in the past couple years? Until recently I had a crappy PC that couldn't play much of anything.

I especially like RPGs and RTS, in depth FPSs. Unfortunately Neverwinter Nights 2 and Dungeon Siege 2 sound buggy and bad from the reviews I have read.

Your LJ

1. How honest are you in your LJ? Do you say everything, or leave stuff out, depending on who's reading it?
2. Do you ever post things that have to do with other LJ friends and exclude them from reading it?
3. What kind of postings do you usually make? (i.e. Trying to sort out your feelings, a humorous view on world events, what's going on in your life, etc.)
4. Is your journal friends only? Why/why not?
5. Are your posts usually private, public, all friends, or specific groups of friends?
6. Why do you use LJ and not something like a paper diary?
7. Do you do a lot of private posts, or can people read all/most of them?
8. Do you feel that being on LJ makes you more prone to opening up with your life's secrets, troubles, and hardships than you would usually do?
9. If you could get unlimited access to one person's LJ, whose would it be and why?

Sorry if these are random, but I'm genuinely curious.

silly college essays

A girl I tutored had this application essay question to answer, and I thought it was silly so I figured I'd ask it here:

 They were talking on the radio about weird things people eat. I guess Miley Cyrus drinks ketchup. That prompted me to ask, what are weird things that you eat that usually go with other food, but you eat them solo...or what weird things do you eat in general? 

My answers: 

I love those little creamer cups you see at fast food restaurants or gas stations. I'll drink like ten of them if I have the opportunity to snatch as many. 

I used to drink pickle juice after the pickles were gone. 
I would eat pepperocini peppers, take the stems and dip them in the juice, and then chew on the stems. 

When my mom would make hamburgers, she would always end up with too much lettuce and tomatoes after dinner, so I would take that, ranch dressing, and toast and make a lettuce sandwich. That's not very weird, but I've never heard of anyone doing it before.

southwest airlines / oversized people

Is there anyone out there that has flown on Southwest who is of large size / borderline size who has fit into a seat? There has been and is also disclosed on their rules that if you cannot fit into one seat, you will have to purchase 2 seats. If you feel more comfortable in sharing this info in private you can email me at gimmecoffy2@yahoo.com. I am 5'9 and keep fluctuating in size each year and have been flying on Delta, but due to rising prices i was thinking about flying Southwest. Your help is appreciated. Thanx.

Movies

My boyfriend is "mad" at me because he thinks I only want to watch movies such as chick flicks and I never want to watch anything he wants to watch because I dont like horror movies or movies with lots of blood & guts & violence such as "Saw" or "Hostel".

What are some good recommendations for movies that we would both like that arent like those I just mentioned?

I enjoy movies based on true stories and/or dramas, and some examples of movies I like are Blow, The Departed, Boondock Saints, Armageddon, American History X, American Beauty, etc.

Any other good ones? (BTW, assume I am extremely sheltered when it comes to most movies that 'everyone has already seen' because chances are, I havent seen it)

A Hypothetical Situation

You are a college student that (gasp) actually cares about your grades. You are enrolled in a class that you need to graduate and if you don't pass now, you won't have time to retake it. You have a one-page scholarship essay due in the afternoon that you haven't written yet. You can take your laptop to class and probably get away with ignoring everything the professor says while working in your essay. Or you can use one of your two free absences and stay home to work on it. Keep in mind that it's early in the semester and your roommate is eternally ill.

I ask because The Boyfriend has to subtly remind me every year when exactly his birthday is coming up, and I am ever so grateful because otherwise I'd have no idea. I keep thinking it's three days later than it is. I've known the guy ten years and it still gives me trouble. VALIDATE ME, TQC. I need to know I'm not alone!

If not (or if so and you just want to answer more questions), what simple thing do you have trouble remembering about people?
Graphic Animatronic Sexual Displays

Scenario:
A guy and a girl meet at a club/bar/party, hit it off and decide to have a special cuddle/ make sweet, sweet Sarah Mclachlan love/ have a "quiche" etc.

Several weeks later, the woman discovers she's pregnant and contacts the guy. He does not want a child and wants her to have an abortion or adoption, however she feels that it's the right time in her life to have a child/wants a baby/needs a kidney donor in the future.

Should the man be forced to pay child support if he doesn't want the baby but she decides that she wants to keep the child?

This is as a result of a one night stand.

Yet again, a question about a supposed debate between supposed friends!

My friend and I are debating identical twins dressing identically.  At what age does it stop being cute?

Personally, I think the cuteness ends when they get out of high school.  My aunts are identical twins, and they're 40-some years old, and when they dress identical, it just looks ridiculous.  I guess Twin Day is a perfectly fine excuse to dress alike, or if you're actively trying to perpetuate the stereotype that twins are incapable of independent thought.

Another debate - My brother thinks Malibu's Most Wanted is funnier than The New Guy.  I'm partial to The New Guy.  Which do you like better?

Have you ever suspected or felt pretty certain that someone here in TQC doesn't care for you that much, without knowing the reason why?

Whether you have or haven't, here's a chance to do one of two things (or both, if you really wanna):
Will you comment here and ask people to be up front in telling you if they don't care for you for some reason?
Or alternatively, will you comment here and name at least one person you suspect of not liking you, and ask them for any reason that may be so?

PS: I'm feeling optimistic today, so I hope we can have fun and maybe learn a new thing or two with this.   8)

Edit: You guys who say you don't care if people tell you are taking some of the potential fun outta this, I hope you know.  You're all(?) smart enough that if you comment, you should be prepared for any lurking "haters" to go ahead and spout off why they don't like you.

    Alternately, what else can I say to her to cheer her up?

    Poll #1146699 Famous for..?

    If you were going to be famous for something.. based on your talent traits .. what would i be for?

    Singer
    8(7.7%)
    Actor/Actress
    10(9.6%)
    Musician
    7(6.7%)
    Author
    41(39.4%)
    Artist
    14(13.5%)
    Model
    3(2.9%)
    TV Personality/Comedian type
    21(20.2%)



    I'd have to go with singer..
    I'm a decent actress and musician but don't enjoy either as much as my singing. I write but I have no motivation to go back and edit/rework it for viewing.. I lose interest quickly and most of it is self indulgent crap anyway.
    I have zero artistic talent, I can barely colour inside the lines..
    I did a bit of modeling as a young teenager but I'm not quite tall enough and probably not thin enough anymore- plus.. there's the fact I don't quite look like Heidi Klum..
    I am known for my slow humour.. funny has never been and never will be my thing.


    Got anything just a little bit special about you?

    I'm pitch perfect. It means I can automatically sing, yes.. but it also means I get actual pain whenever other people sing out of tune even slightly. I don't mention it because I'd come across like a pretentious asshole

    Do you know anyone that you think will ever make it?

    My friend is assistant producer to a well known band. He's here right now showing off his first platinum disk. He makes his own music and he's.. pretty wow.

    TMI Time?

    Do you have any weird/mildly gross habits, such as picking at your scalp or scabs or anything? What are they?

    Are you open about them, or are you private about them?

    Would it gross you out if you saw someone else with the same habit as you?

    For the less TMI-inclined, what's your favorite kind of juice?
    Wine

    Cover Page

    So I'm 3 credits (1 class) away from graduating in May. I was told I can submit a portfolio to be exempt from the 3 credits and not have to pay for a summer class.

    The portfolio was done overseas and one story was from a prompt. I'm having a hard time working in context into the story and keeping it short, so is there a way I can include a cover page which explains the prompt? I googled cover page, but it's all for critical essay documents.

    The chair of the department isn't too happy with me, and if he so much as looks at me wrong when turning this in, I'm running the opposite direction and tearing it up. So in other words, I can't just sit down and explain things about the writing to him. Yes someday I'll grow some balls.

    Which comedian used this line?

    "Yeah, my friend is a manic depressive. He got attacked by a bipolar bear. I guess that didn't help."


    He's done the Montreal Comedy Festival. Also on the episode of the show was Tim Minchin, Ed Byrne and one of the guys from Whose Line.


    Edit: It was Stewart Francis! Thanks for helping!

    THIS IS A GROSS QUESTION

    We have a cleaning lady who takes care of our apartment during the week. She is awesome, and we've become good friends, and she's been helping me with my Italian. In short - she's one of the coolest people I've ever met.

    Well TQC, this morning I took a massive dump. It didn't flush all the way so I waited for the toilet to refill before flushing it again. Except that's when our cleaning lady came in and decided to clean the bathroom before I could stop her. I am strangely embarrassed that she saw my poo. I felt like I should have apologized or something, but I didn't say anything.

    SHOULD I BE EMBARRASSED?
    What's the last body function that embarrassed you.

    Working at a resort/phone interview

    There's a strong possibility that I'll be getting a job in Block Island for the summer. Is there anything I should take into consideration? What should I bring?

    Have you ever worked at a resort or in a resort town/island? How was it?

    Also, I have a phone interview Monday. How should I approach this? I've never done a phone interview before.

    Thanks!

    I need help picking a class. Pick one:
    Video Production 2- Something I'm into but the teacher is super douchey. You have no idea.
    Latin 1- There no logical reason for me to take this whatsoever. But it'd kill time.
    Psychology- I'm kinda into it but it's not like a passion or anything.
    No 1st or no 6th period- But it's not like I have anywhere to be.

    And what's is the absolute best community ever in existence?

    Through some odd glitch in my computer and/or sound card, whenever I listen to music in iTunes, it sounds exactly like I'm listening to it on a record player. If this started happening on your computer would you be annoyed, or would you think it was pretty awesome?

    Sociology of Deviance vs. Cultural Anthropology

      Should I take Sociology of Deviance or Cultural Anthropology during spring quarter? And why?

    Deviance: Studies the structure and process of deviance in social groups. Students discuss historical as well as contemporary examples.

    Cultural Anthro: Cultural anthropologists are researchers who learn first-hand about other cultures by living with the people under study. Topics may include social organization, economics, power and politics, language, technology, religion and ritual, and gender. Wide geographic coverage provides a basis for global comparisons of cultural similarities and differences between human groups.

    If it matters, I'm for sure taking Social Psychology.

    there's a mystery to solve, gang!

    So a couple of days before i moved into my apartment on Feb 2nd, my roommate went off to China to visit with his family. Now, he said he'd be gone for three weeks and all attempts to contact him or his friends that he lived with previously have been for nothing.

    TQC, where in the world is Rick Liang?

    Should i even care as long as his rent is magically paid?

    When I say things like "undeniably awesome" or "exceptionally awesome" and the like, are the words before the 'awesome' adverbs?

    Is there a more specific word for them like "_______ adverbs"? Because "often" and "well" are adverbs too but seem...just...different you know?

    And they (my words) also aren't modifying an action, like many adverbs, but an adjective.

    Is there a specific word for using an adverb with an adjective?

    What was your last impulse buy? Do you regret it?

    I just ordered a laptop from a Dell kiosk at the mall today... I can't wait for it to come! I'm stoked that I got approved for financing, even though I'm going to be paying it off much sooner

    How would you respond to this situation?

    You come home upset one day, and go into your bedroom. Someone you live with comes to your room and demands you talk to them about it; you say no. They press the issue, you get pissed off and carry on telling them you dont want ot talk to them. Eventually you snap and shout at them "NO I DONT WANT TO TALK TO YOU, JUST LEAVE ME ALONE PLEASE?". They continue telling you to talk to them, over and over and you start to freak out a bit. You try to get past to leave the room, and the person pushes you back and up against the wall and starts repeating "calm down, calm down" over and over. You ask them to let go calmly, and they say no and carry on repeating 'calm down'. You're like, wtf, why are you doing this? and they tell you that they're not doing anything.

    Would you
    a) go "ok, ill talk to you" and proceed to talk to them
    b) flip out and after a while of this end up on the floor begging hysterically for them to let you go (as they keep refusing)
    c) something else

    EDIT: if you would do something violent, does your answer change if this is someone big enough to easily overpower you?

    even if you'd choose a or c, do you think b) is an unacceptable response

    What's the weirdest compliment you've gotten recently?

    This guy told me last night in all seriousness that he likes me because I have a cute tongue. And he didn't mean anything sexual by it.
