In response the the replies in my last question Discovery jobs

if Mike Rowe was to find news of how many people would join the crew just to get a chance to fuck him....

1. How creeped out do you think he'd be?
2. How likely is it that they will never hire another female crew member? (they seem scarce as it is)

So, say you have a party and a friend drunkenly breaks something you have to replace. It's a complete accident (glass tabletop at a completely packed party) and they offer to pay for it

How much would it have to cost before you'd actually charge them?

Can anyone recommend a short story that would be easy to analyze? I have to write a 500 word analysis but am not familiar with many short stories. I would like something that would be easy to write about and one of which is interesting and easy to read/understand. Halp please!

When you have negative biases towards a race, that's called racism, right? Like, "all black people are criminals."

Well... what if it's a positive bias? Like, "All Mexicans are hard workers". Would you still be a racist?

ROADTRIP!!

You have a good car - all ready to go, no problems to be seen, mechanically sound, comfy seats.
You have a sitter for the time, someone you trust and love and your kids will be fine.
You have disposable cash for the time for hotels/food/souvenirs/lap dances/copious bottles of booze.
Your camera is charged and ready to go.
Your bags are packed.
You do not have to work and no one expects you back anywhere anytime soon.

YOU ARE FREE AS A BIRD!!!!

Where are you going on a road trip with other thequestionclub members?
How long you going for?
What are you going to see?
Which other thequestionclub members are coming with you?

1. A little over 30 minutes ago a military recruiting station in Times Square was hit with a small explosion, so TQC, what caused the explosion, was it the tri-lateral, the aliens, or the tri-lateral conspiring with the aliens? (I'm sure they'll figure it out soon but assume you haven't read the article 6 hours after this was posted) Serious answers only ^_~

2. The Seattle Biomedical Research Institute is paying volunteers $4k to be bitten by mosquitoes infected with malaria so that they can test a cure on you, if given the chance, would you participate?

Why the heck would anyone care if they have to pee after cuddling for a while and then go and "flee the apartment"? Is it really that embarrassing? And what does "missing a spectacular spoon fest" have to do with a urinary tract infection?

Also, did anyone find it irritating that it says "Only men are allowed to drool when giving oral sex, and that’s because they don’t know any better"? So many things wrong with that statement, I don't know where to begin.

I called in sick for the third straight day today. Now, there is some paperwork that some of my clients were expecting me to fax to them on Tuesday (which I obviously haven't done) which I could easily do. Do you think my boss would be appreciative if I showed up to the office today to finish up my errands, thinking, "Wow, she sure is a trooper!"? Or would she be more inclined to think, "Well, she's clearly not THAT sick", thus making her question my illness? I DO sound and feel horrible.

My mom and I had a long argument last night about rape and victim blaming and in the end we just both ended up pissed off... I'm still mad. My dad later told me I need to just avoid bringing up subjects like that around her, or if she tries to start the argument to ignore it, because it won't help change her mind and we'll just end up mad. But dammit, subjects like that piss me off and I don't WANT to not argue. After all, she's wrong, and I can't abide by that! ;)

Note, since it's being asked a lot: My side of the argument was that it is NEVER the victim's fault, and it is ALWAYS the rapist's fault. Hers was that "well, sometimes it's their fault for wearing such-and-such or being in such-and-such place".

So TQC, what subject do you have extreme difficulty not arguing/bitching/getting angry over when it's brought up? Do you try to ignore it, like my dad suggests, or do you fight anyway?

Stalkers and comedians...

Here is some background info on my stalker situation. It's under the cut, if you don't care to read.

My question to you, TQC, is what do I do to keep K from coming over, and stalking me? I feel sorry for the guy, but I don't want to deal with him.

For anybody who didn't read this,

b. If not, who is your favorite stand up comedian?

2. What should I wear to a comedy show? I'm going to one Friday night.
 

EDIT: I told him not to come over everyday, but he just got really mad, and started cussing. But, the next day he was back over.

Peanut butter?

Okay, so this morning I was making myself a pb&j sandwich when I took a look at the peanut butter jar. I keep it in the pantry, this is how I was taught to store peanut butter, but on the side of the jar it says "CONTAINS NO PRESERVATIVES REFRIGERATE AFTER OPENING" *ETA: It is JIF Reduced Fat PB*


So umm, my question to you guys is:

1. Is my peanut butter bad then? It's been sitting in my pantry for months opened.
2. Do you refrigerate your peanut butter?
3. AM I GONNA GET SICK!? Have I just been lucky all these years in not getting sick from eating 'bad' peanut butter??

ETA2: I wrote this after I had already left for class...so umm, sorry to say but my reading comprehension must suck.

The jar said NO REFRIGERATION REQUIRED. Maybe I was looking at the jelly jar when I read that...it was early morning. Oops!

1) If a friend or a co-worker judged you harshly all the time, indirectly(this person isn't telling you this, rather through their actions, etc you've perceived this) making you feel incompetent for every little mistake, how would you handle it?

2) Why does it smell like band-aids after my mom uses her insulin?

3) Were you bullied at all growing up? How? A girl in my class loved to bully me for some reason. I think it was because I was friends with someone that no one liked, so I'd kinda defend her, thus getting bullied myself. Another girl constantly made fun of how I acted, laughing at my awkwardness and such. She also told me I was fat and needed to lose weight, when I was 12. Nice.

4) How fucking awesome is it that I got front(balcony) row, center seats to see Eddie Izzard next month? :D

I recently posted about LDRs, and now I have another question that's sort of related:
Have any of you relocated to another state or country for a significant other?

My S.O. was recently accepted to law school in Nashville, TN and he has asked me to move there with him. However, I have no idea what I would do with my life in Nashville. I have never been there, but I don't see it as a place where I could really build MY career given my interests (ie: advertising, journalism -- careers that pretty much require being in a huge city such as NY). I don't think he'll stay in TN upon graduation, but 3 years is a long time to be somewhere where I can't really work on boosting my career.

I am originally from Atlanta, so I guess I could move back there because it's not too far from Nashville. But in all honesty, I do not want to be in a LDR, yet I can't imagine life with him not in it.

Since I am new, TQC, I want to ask:

2) What are you doing with your life, ie--school? work?
3) What are some of your favorite books/music/movies/etc?
4) If you could go anywhere, where would you go and why?
5) About how many times per day would you say you post on TQC?

Me:
1) I am originally from right outside of Chicago but now I go to Hampshire College in Amherst, MA.

2) School! I am studying literary journalism and cognitive science.

3) Books I really like are God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy, His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman and Dangerous Angels by Francesca Lia Block. Music wise, I love oldies and show tunes. My top five favorite movies, in no particular order, are: Casablanca, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Matrix, The Believer and His Girl Friday. I enjoy TV shows such as Sex and the City, The West Wing, and Firefly. I'm also somewhat of a PC gamer, and recently I played through The Longest Journey and Dreamfall, and I liked them a lot.

4) I would travel all around the U.S. and talk to everyone I meet!

Whenever I go to the Dr. and  she asks me the standard q's (if I do drugs, smoke or drink) I always answer completely honestly.  
I feel like I don't drink or smoke that much, especially compared to age group, but I get this sense of disapproval from her. I think this might be because I read a study that claimed 70% of people lie to their doctors.
Therefore I'm curious, TQC:

Do you lie to your doctor? About what?
And if you don't, do you ever get the feeling she/he disapproves?

Hey guys,

Is this sentence grammatically correct?:

"You must have an equal or greater number of chips than the other player..."

I think that it isn't grammatically correct, because you couldn't say: "You must have an equal number of chips than...", but my colleagues disagree. What do you think?

When is the last time you told someone the truth about a bad decision you thought they were making?
How did that affect the relationship with this person?

Fabric dying

Do you think it would be easier to bleach print some images into dark cotton? Or to wax resist and then dye white cotton?

I am worried that dying won't be dark enough but that bleach is bad for fabrics and could just eat holes through them.

Sheets that is, I am making my boyfriend some sheets that do not involve a camo print for our anniversary and I'm looking for the best way to get a good contrast between black/navy blue sheets and white stencil shapes.

So a few days ago I'm sitting at the computer reading and all of a sudden I get so dizzy I fall out of my chair. The dizziness lasted for several hours. I tried eating a snack mix with high protein, potassium, and carbs, but it didn't help. I also took a decongestant at the insistence of my girlfriend. It got better after I woke up, but I was still a bit dizzy.

What do you think it is? Am I pregnant? I mean, I've never had sex before, but yanno, I could be the new Mary (*rolls eyes*).


Today I went out with my mum and ran a bunch of errands. We were in and out of the snow and then we went to eat at Friday's. I had the fish tacos (yeah, my mom cracked up when I ordered. The waiter was embarrassed). I ate two out of three and then we went to the mall. While walking around in Penney's, I started feeling nauseous and hot. My mum told me my face was flushed. I sat down while she finished shopping and then we drove home. I started feeling more and more worse and I got sick to my stomach and had diarrhea.
Do I have food poisoning? Or would I only throw up if the fish was bad? Would it hit that soon?
Should I go to the hospital or wait? I haven't gotten the flu in about ten years, so I don't know if it's that or not.

 Did you crack up when you saw the words fish taco? It had this white-ish creamy sauce and my mind went to nasty places. It certainly didn't help that my mom kept sniggering.


Have you ever been to an adult novelty store with one of your parents?  Mum and I went today and she took me when I bought my first toy :D

in terms of dating and relationships and whatnot..

1. do you think there's such a thing as one person being "out of the league" of another person?
2. do you get upset when you notice someone is attracted to someone that's out of their league?
3. have you ever gone out with someone that was, by typical social standards, out of your league? how did that work out for you?

My grad school program starts in August this year, so I'm starting to fill out my FAFSA. Online it asks which FAFSA I want to file:

The 2008-2009 School Year (July 1st, 2008 - June 30th, 2009)
The 2007-2008 School Year (July 1st, 2007 - June 30th, 2008)

I would think it'd be 2008-2009, but my mom says she thinks the 2007-2008 one. That doesn't make any sense to me.

Which would you select?

Myers-Briggs types on TQC

For those of you who have taken the Myers-Briggs test, which personality type are you? (Alas, because there are 16 types and LJ's polls only allow you 15 options, the percentages will be a little off.) I'm curious to see if, because we all seem to enjoy answering random questions and such, there's a particular personality that's the clear majority. Or not. And if our demographics match the USA demographics mentioned on Wiki, or not. And stuff. My curiosity cup, it runneth over.
