would Rogain help my hair grow longer a bit faster?

say hypothetically you are crushing on someone after you were pretty much just out of a bad relationship that ended 4 months ago - but the crush is with someone right now. would you keep up some sort of hope as you get along really well with the crush, or would you make an attempt to get fixated on someone else?

would you take your prozac or drown your sorrows in alchohol? and by sorrows i mean depression.

TQC, how are my eyebrows bad? I'm the first picture.

edit: Does it make a difference that most of the time I wear much more eye make-up?

edit number 2: Since it's linked directly off my Photobucket, what should I replace the picture with?

edit number 3: I TOOK THE LINK OFF BECAUSE I HAVE NOW TURNED INTO TUBGIRL. ALSO THE FIRST LINK IS NSFW or life really. On a scale of 1 - 10, how much do you love Tubgirl?

Ok, so, let's say you meet a guy. He's really cool and cute and you guys hang out a little and really hit it off. On Valentine's Day, you make these indefinite plans to go to a museum, and then to an Irish Pub. He texts you that afternoon, "Hey so I guess I'll take ya to that museum and then maybe we could get a hotel room that'd would be really cool."

You laugh out loud and ignore the message, because you are offended and because you're really interested in someone else.

However, you are no longer interested in someone else. Would you call this guy back/give him another chance? Is it too late?

What's the website where you can blow a picture up super big and print it out on individual 8x11 pieces of paper? I saw it posted here once.

I heard someone say they didn't like it because it only looked good far away. Do you think this picture would look good blown up to the size of my back wall so I could make one wall of my room NYC? (warning - big [but pretty] picture at the link!)

Would a dark red go well on my other walls with that, if I decide to make one wall that picture? That was my original plan and I have all the paint and accessories (was previously doing an India/Far East theme.) Any other color suggestions?

I'm having a bonfire on the 14th. Who wants to partay?

I need some good party songs cause my friends think my music sucks. What are some good techno songs? Rock? Big Band? Swing? Jazz?
I'm going to have a big variety but not a whole lot of R&B or Rap music. No country either.

I've already got a few songs in mind: Bei Mir Bist Du Schön by  Baccara and In the Mood by Glenn Miller (yeah, my gram  gave me a WTF look, too, but I like the song and it's danceable).  I think I'll include Haben Sie Gehört das Deutsche Band? from the Producers too, cause I'm a dork.

What is your favourite song to dance to?
What song do you absolutely despise that always gets played in clubs?
What's a song that you always get a weird look for liking?

 I don't really pay much attention to Teenage culture but I have been hearing a bunch of terms lately that I don't fully understand. So my question is

When someone refers to someone as "Scene" what exactly is that supposed to mean? For example I heard someone at the mall refer to a group of kids as "Scene Kids" What does that mean?

When you have a fight with your partner, do you have make up sex?

How exactly does that work? Do you actually say "This is makeup sex" Or "I'm done being mad at you now. Let's fuck!" or do you just go from FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT to FUCKFUCKFUCK?

Can you have sex with your partner if you are pissed off at them?

You're in the grocery store, browsing along, selecting your frozen peas or whatever. Suddenly a song comes over the speakers. And it's that song. You know, the song that was the last one you danced to at your high school prom. Or the one that always reminds you of that road trip you took with your best friend. Or the song you danced to in the parking lot with your friends in college. Whatever the reason, it's that song. The song that, if you were in the car, you would crank the volume up and sing your little heart out and dance. But you're in the grocery store. With people.

Do you smile to yourself and move on? Bob your head a little? Mouth the words and dance a little? Or full out sing and dance through the aisles?

Does your answer change if you're at the store with someone who would presumably feel the same way about the song as you?

Another tipping question

Ok, I know people ask about tipping here all the time, but here's another one. I am getting a haircut today, and I'm wondering how much I should tip on a $16 haircut.

The place I go is pretty nice -- way better than Best Cuts and other similar chains -- but I guess it's just cheap because it's out in the middle of nowhere. The guy who cuts my hair also washes it (they don't have a separate hair washing person). He charges $16, so I usually give a $4 tip (which, conveniently, is my change from a $20). Thinking about it percentage-wise, 25% seems like a decent tip, but then $4 doesn't seem like much. So, TQC, how much would YOU tip on a $16 haircut?

I'm going to sound like an idiot..

but I'm am in this subject! I had a job during the summer, it was only like a two-month job, but now people keep telling me I have to call them for a tax paper..what tax paper? does it have a specific name? what do I say to them when I call? I dont just want to be like "hi..can you please send me the tax paper?" sounds weird! what am i supposed to do? and yes that was my first job ever

2. If it was pretty far in advance, did it make you more excited or make you lose interest?

Do you know someone who has had plastic surgery - the kind that's unrelated to health or medical reasons, but simply out of "vanity?"

Does/has your opinion of that person changed? Do you think for someone to get a "vanity" procedure done, he/she must have low self-esteem, or deeper issues?

So in preparation of the new computer on Thursday, I'm looking for some good RPG games to install. I'll have alot of space (160 gig). So I need suggestions!

This is what I have so far thats gonna be installed:

2. Sim City 4
3. Diablo 2 (old skool!)
4. Warcraft 3
5. Neverwinter Nights
6. Baldur's Gate

In the bookcase I also have the 10th Anniversary of Myst, that I may install. Crystal also has the Kings Quest collection. Anyone out there in cyberspace, (the 'verse, lol I'm such a geek, and you are too if you can tell me where that comes from.) have any othe rideas?

This morning I had a Carnation Instant Breakfast, chocolate flavor, as my breakfast. I also had coffee. Both were made with soymilk, and I put mocha-flavored Splenda in the coffee. I subsequently carried two separate thermoses full of chocolate-flavored, soymilk-containing drinks with me to school today.

This got me thinking.

Would it be (1) awesomely delicious or (2) disgusting to combine the coffee, the instant breakfast and the soymilk together? Would it become some sort of delicious, caffeinated, chocolatey, protein and vitamin-rich super drink? Or would it be disastrous for some reason?

Have you ever done this?

Evil Employee

I work at a call center. We do not have assigned seats. This morning I came in and sat at the desk I usually sit at. There was a purple pen there that someone left behind. I decided to use it because I needed a pen actually.

Fast forward a couple of hours later. I am on a call and using the pen to write down something. Another employee comes in, one that does not really like me I suspect. She sits at the next desk over. She sees the pen that I am using, stands up and snatches it out of my hand as I am writing, saying that it was her pen.

Was she wrong to do this like that?

so, maybe i am just really sensitive or something, but are there people out there who enjoy teeth on their vagina? i'm sure it could be enjoyable somehow, but not in a clampy/gnawy way.

this is geared more toward the ladies of the community, BECUZ. (but if you are a male and want to answer, feel free to do so)

have you ever dated anyone that earned ($ wise) a significant amount less than you did?

did it bother you that they weren't on your level (in regards to pay/income)?

did it get in the way of you guys being able to do stuff since you for the most part had to end up paying (or were afraid that you weren't able to do such and such because the other person might not be able to afford it so why even bring it up - because it might make them feel inferior to you since it's usually the man that makes more than the woman)?

Sexual odds. Some ends

Would you ever join the Rent-a-Dildo program?

Yes. I'd like to be able to check out various toys without having to purchase them. What if they suck?
No. That's disgusting

You find out that your SO got drunk with his/her friends, and they were near a petting zoo, and your SO was dared that he/she wouldn't have sex with/go down on a sheep/goat. Well, let's just say that your SO didn't back down from the challenge. You heard about all this from a common friend. What would be your reaction?

I join in on the good-natured ribbing that my SO is getting from all his/her friends. That's kinda funny
That's cheating. Whether or not it was sex with a farm animal or sex with a human, my SO cheated on me and I will act accordingly
I'd be incredibly grossed out. It would probably affect the future of the relationship somewhat, since I wouldn't want to touch him/he as much
It would probably affect the relationship somewhat, as I now know that all along, I've been dating an idiot
I feel relieved. Now I don't feel as bad about that one-night stand with the llama last year

Let's say your SO had some unusual fetishes and kinks. Which of the following fetishes would you be willing to entertain in order to appease your SO? The ones you don't check, I'll assume are deal breakers

Light BDSM
Heavy BDSM
Infantism (not pedophilia. Look it up)
Erotic asphyxiation
Furry sex
Water games
Faux necrophilia (you soak in a tub of cold water to lower your body temp, and then just lie there in bed)
Blood drinking
None of the above

Let's say you're dating someone. You like him/her and you guys really get along in every possible way. Except, the only sexual position they engage in is missionary. They refuse to try anything else because 'it's just not romantic'. Obviously this means that the sex is pretty vanilla, with no props or toys utilized either. Would this be a deal breaker?

I am currently brushing up the resume one last time and I have a quandary.

See, at the company I currently work for, I have been working there since August 30, 2006. I've worked there ever since. However, from November 10, 2007, to January 12, 2008, I was a seasonal keyholder. I got a temporary raise and a set of keys to the store. I reverted to my position of sales associate shortly thereafter.

How can I designate this on a resume? I don't want to give the impression that I was a seasonal keyholder for the entire time I worked there, that makes no sense to me anyway?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

A second, unrelated question: has anyone ever had their moisturizer, well for lack of a better word, run off their face in water? I put some on this morning, and when I walked to the store in the rain, it kind of melted off.
