Does it bother you when people respond to "I love you" with "me too"?

It really bothers me.  I guess it shouldn't, since it's so widely used and accepted, but I think most people don't realize that when you respond with "me too", you're really saying "[I love] me, too".

Can you use Care Credit at a vet/doctor that isn't on the Care Credit website? Do you use it like a credit card with a better interest rate? I've been looking over the site but I'm still a bit confused.

another stupid crush question

Alright tqc, I don't blame you if you skip this, but anyways:

I have a mega fatty crush on my roommate. So mega fatty that I basically do nothing but think about her all day. My life is sort of revolving around coming home to hang out with her. We also work together, and I feel the only reason I still work at my deadend job is because she has told me on numerous occasions that if I didn't work there, she wouldn't either. (She is a manager there, so I feel like she should stay since she makes more than enough to live and if she left, she would go back to working in a cafe, making no money). So, I pretty much see her constantly. And at night we stay up watching the news and conan (NBC is the only channel we get), but the problem is she always comes out in a ever too short nightgown and super cute panties. This drives me bonkers, but I don't want her to stop.

Also, to make things more complicated, her ex boyfriend (whom she is still friends with) has a crush on me.

What the eff do I do?

Serious, non serious, non related answers all accepted.

EDIT: She is 5 years older than me (my 19 to her 24), if that makes a difference. And I am a guy.

p.s. What would you do if you found a giant (2 feet at least) dual headed dildo outside your apt?

I am a 19 yr old Sophomore. Hopefully, I will be studying abroad in Ireland for the fall semester. I NEED to save thousands of dollars this summer for food, travel, spending money...living in general. I am hearing from numerous people that have studied abroad that I should have at least $5,000! D: Obviously, I will be needing a job or two. BUT WHAT! I want to have an amazing time while I'm abroad...

TQC, without selling myself on the corner, how can I make $5,000 this summer?!

2. What classes do you have today? I have a three hour sculpture lesson. Life is hard.

3. Are there any things you need to do but you keep procrastinating? I need to clean out the fridge, drop out of my education subjects, book some plane tickets to go to Perth over Easter, wake up the sleeping husband in my bed, and get some art supplies.

Hypothetical

Two friends, Anna and Beth, go out for a night on the town on Friday night. They love to have dinner together and share bottles of wine. At the end of the night, both ladies flop down their credit cards (both gold cards) to split the bill equally.

Sunday morning, Beth notices that she has Anna's gold card. She rings and tells her this and asks if Anna can please check her bag for Beth's card. Anna comes back very quickly and says that it is not there, she does not have it.

Beth's busy, forgets about her card for a week, until she runs into a problem with her bank while closing a real estate purchase. She had told her bank that her gold card had a $0 balance and it appears to now have about $11,500 (Hong Kong) (about $1500USD/CDN) on it. In the meantime, her bank has informed her that her card was about to expire and a new one was on it's way to her and to please authorize it ASAP so that all other cards no longer work. No problem.

It's now been two weeks since dinner with Anna. She rings Anna again and asks her to please check again, as her card has been used. Anna, sure enough, finds the card this time and says to Beth, "How did you know it was me?" Anna claims to not notice what card she uses when she shops and has just been grabbing a gold card at random for the last week. $11,500 in one week? All with the same card? And you never looked at the name? Or the fact that Beth's is a Mastercard and all of Anna's are Visa cards?

Question:

How pissed would you be with Anna, if you were Beth, on a scale of 1 to 10?

What would you do?

Someone told me that there is a way I could set desktop and settings on my Mac PowerBook to look like Windows. Is this true? If so, how do I do it? I don't mean actually loading Windows onto it, just setting it to look similar.

Do you know of any guides that will compare the use of Mac to Windows- for example, to access sound recorder on Windows, you go to start, etc. Something that would show how to do the equivalent of that kind of stuff on a Mac.

I have the instruction manual and I've googled all this stuff- no luck. I hate this Mac.

Becherovka

'Allo guys.

My google-fu is weak today.  I'm trying to find out if it's possible to buy the Czech liquor Becherovka in Canada.  Unfortunately, all I've managed to find so far is a phone number to an office in Quebec (I'm out west), which doesn't seem to bode well for purchasing only one or two bottles at a time.

(1) (Long shot, I know.) Anyone know if I can purchase Becherovka here, and if so where?

(2) (Less long shot.)  Any recommendations for where I should look or what I should google for to answer my question myself?

Dear Dr. LJ

1. My eyesight is going wonky since I woke up a half an hour ago. I didn't notice anything then but now I've got this big weird patch in the middle of my field of vision that looks like I either looked at the sun or somebody took a picture of me and the flash got in my eyes. As neither of these things have happened yet, and as the patch has lasted a lot longer than it usually does, I don't think that's the cause. Has this ever happened to you? What do you think I should do? Am I going blind?

EDIT. My vision seems to've returned more or less to normal. Thanks, though TQC.

Dr. LJ x2,

I was sent for a test yesterday morning concerning my bowel and the test came back positive (bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine). The nurse said that it's important for me to contact that doctor so that she can prescribe antibiotics to treat it. Well, I called her office right after the test and the secretary said the doctor would call me back. She did not. I called again today and still haven't heard back.

I know that the treatment is a 7 day supply of antibiotics and then my suffering can stop. All I need is a script for antibiotics! What the hell do I do at this point?

Was 9/11 An Inside Job?!?!?1

That's the 64 cent question, isn't it? And Loose Change has the answer! My favorite response to the Loose Change crockumentary is from cracked.com: Was 9/11 an Inside Job?.

My own feelings on the 9/11 "Truth" bullshit is that it's, well, bullshit. Where's Penn & Teller when you need them? Oh wait, they are right here! Usually all it amounts to is "I don't like Republicans. Republicans are evil, and Bush is the supreme evil, even eviller than Hitler. Therefore Bush has to be behind 9/11 somehow..." Or Jews. They're always handy scapegoats in a pinch, but it's not quite as hip to hate Jews. Not yet, anyway. Remember that the Klan hated Jews before hating Jews was cool! But I digress.

In lieu of all the marriage posts:

If you know, how did your parent propose to your other parent? (That sounds so awkward in gender-neutral!)

Mine didn't. My dad was talking over dinner with my mom and her aunt and uncle, and said something along the lines of "yeah, we're moving to Houston after we get married." My mom was all ".... we're getting married?" And my dad said "well.... yeah, of course we are." My mom sort of knew this already, so she was okay with it.
But the story makes me chuckle every time I think about it :)

Why is Medicaid so fucked up?

I applied because I'm 20, I have major health problems, and my job doesn't give me insurance. Apparently I cannot qualify unless I have a child or am over the age of 22.

Granted, I do live with my mother in a room seperate from the house, but I pay rent and for my own expenses, she doesn't give me any money so this shouldn't effect my application.

Eggs are so great, I fucking love eggs. I buy great big fat brown eggs from the farmers market, to support my local economy you know. I eat about a dozen eggs a week, I fucking love eggs. Usually eggs on toast with the yolks popped so the runny yolky goodness can soak into the bread and then sprinkled with paprika. But I also like them poached and deviled and scrambled is ok too. Omelette's are the win and I eat spinach and feta quiche about 3x a week from the cafe near my house. Hell I love custard and creme brulee too. I like "exotic" eggs too like duck, quail, sturgeon and tobiko. And today my nutrition teacher told me that even though eggs are high in cholesterol that as long as I get enough fiber and my blood cholesterol is ok then I can eat all the fucking eggs that I want! I just ate 2 x-large eggs, but I am still hungry.

Should I eat 2 more eggs?

Tazos/Pogs

So my brother has a bag of pogs/tazos that he was going to throw away.
Would they be at all wanted on ebay do you think?
What are some other uses for them/things I can do with them other than just chucking them away?

Have you had a deceased pet cremated? What was the cost?  If you kept the ashes do you think that upped the price?

ETA: I have no dead pet.  I just am trying to figure it out.  My mother told me she was going to bury him in the backyard if he died, and I don't think I want that for my cat.

What is the worst thing that has ever happened to you while on vacation?

A year and a half ago, my mom & I went to London. The first day there, I fell, and the next day I stepped in a hole and twisted my ankle (I am not usually this clumsy.) Of course, I wasn't going to ruin my vacation by sitting in the hotel and resting my leg, so I had to gimp all around London. We went to Paris for a day too and pretty much just sat on one of those tourist buses the entire time because I couldn't walk around. It sucked.

Mail call!

There's another woman in my building with the same first and last name as I have. Lately I've been getting an influx of her mail. I tend to just throw away obvious junk mail, but will slide it under her door if I'm at all unsure. The first time I left a note with an explanation and my box number because I had opened it, not realizing there were two of us. I've informed the person who puts the mail in the boxes but it hasn't really helped because in some cases people don't write box numbers at all and then how are they to know which one it's for?

1. I've never gotten anything from her. Do you think she's not getting any of my mail or she's keeping/tossing my mail?

2. Would you be annoyed or happy if someone did what I described above?

3. I've never met her. Do you think it's odd she's made no attempt to contact me in return to sort out why I keep getting her mail?

Soheyguys,

My college uses a "free" legal downloading pain in the butt called Ruckus.  As I just got my computer imaged and all of my CDs are at home, I decided to download it so that I can have some music.  Unfortunately, it's a bit difficult to just browse for songs, and I suck at remembering names and such, so I still lack music.  What should I download?

(I currently have:
  • George Carlin
  • Lewis Black
  • Linkin Park
  • Savage Garden
  • Barenaked Ladies
  • Bowling for Soup
  • Three Days Grace)
On a related note, does anyone else out there still buy CDs?  Or am i the only one?

I've been trying to create a yahoo email account for the past couple of days now. After I finish filling out the information it simply tells me that I cannot create a new yahoo ID. I don't have another account with yahoo...anyone else having this problem?

Also.

Have you ever gotten an email saying that someone has tried to guess your email password many times? I have. It's creepy.

What are some little things that make you upset/ruin your day?

I hate it when I get all excited about hanging out and going somewhere only to have the person I was going to hang out with cancel or blow me off. : (

So, how's life going for you?

damn you eliot spitzer!

question!

my boyfriend and i got into a heated debate last night about this and i was wondering if i can get some input from the fine members of the question club.

1. should prostitution be legalized? and i'm not talking about 'escort' services that skirt a long the lines of prostitution, but services that offer sex for money.
1a. if yes why?
1b. if no who should be charged with a crime? the prostitute/pimps, the john or all members involved in said crime?

2. this has absolutely nothing to do with the first question but i have been suffering from the worst cold ever for the past 4 days and i was wondering what is your go to method for kicking a cold? i've tried all of mine (lots of fluids, rest etc) but it seems like nothing to helping at all. ugh, this sore throat is kicking my ass.

How do those spam e-mails for male enhancement work? They're constantly being sent to females so how are the senders deciding who is apparently male, like is it just what "sounds" like a guy's e-mail? Or do they sent them to everyone, period-figuring they have a 50 50 shot?

Also, why are the subjects so horrible?
I just got one that said Does 8 incches Enough 4 U?, what the HELL, that doesn't even make sense.

What is the difference between 70lb and 80lb paper when it comes to printing?

Would 80lb stock be the same as 80lb paper?


*EDIT: I'm guessing they mean paper not text.

Hmm

Do instrument companies guarantee their instruments, in any way?

Backstory: My fiance is a musician, and he plays a Buffet R13 Bb clarinet. It cracked about 10 months ago. He had it pinned, but it has cracked twice since then. He only has it serviced at reputable places. I'm going to have him send an email to the company, but has anyone ever had anything like this happen? Or are we SOL?

Are there any careers that pay enough to support oneself on comfortably, but won't kill your soul (i.e., is not a heartless, cookie-cutter corporation, tolerates individuality, does not thrive on the pain of others, etc.)? Please give specific examples if you work in such a field.

My question to you...

1. Does it happen to you that if you're really really excited about doing something, or going somewhere, when it finally happens you don't enjoy it as much as you thought?

2. Have you ever "payed it forward"? What did you do?

3. Is there any good career quizzes on the Internet that you consider worth trying? I mean those that are made to help people decide what career they might be good at. I've been looking, but you have to pay for most of them. If you know about a good one, I'd be reaaally grateful! :) I'm entering College on August, on Microbiology. But I'm indesicive now, and I feel like this is a very important decision and would like to learn about other careers that have to do with the things I like.

What if each of your fingers and toes had tiny mouths on them?
(OK OK I JUST THOUGHT OF THIS: You could totally give twenty simultaneous blowjobs to very tiny animals!!!!!!!!)

Is seducing someone (for the first time) by suddenly appearing stark naked in front of them ever a good idea?
(Like in Babel, with that Japanese girl WTF)

I bought a 15-foot-long python skin at a juju market in Ghana. It's been sitting in my room in a plastic bag because I am terrified of opening the bag and contracting ebola/African bugs in my flesh. What should I do with this snakeskin, eventually?
(I was thinking a snakeskin bra with very long tassels, also a crotchless thong, but there will be a LOT of material left over.)

I'm looking for some good books that are either non-fiction or based-on-a-true-story, preferably about traveling or a journey of some kind. Can you make some recommendations?

On an unrelated note, is it bad to drink orange juice immediately before or after drinking milk? Someone told me this once...I think it has something to do with the milk going sour due to the acid in the juice.
EDIT: Would it matter that it's citric acid in orange juice but hydrochloric acid in your stomach?
