As a note, in case people don't know: I'm 21six, too. I'd like to think no one else is dumb enough to use this for an icon.

As a note, in case people don't know: I'm 21six, too. I'd like to think no one else is dumb enough to use this for an icon.
Anyway, this girl just told me that "cunt" is a word only uttered by the most ignorant of minds. She claims that's it's the most offensive term in the English lexicon. Worse than "nigger," even.
Is this true? What's the big deal? What's it's etymology, and how did it become so polarizing? Why didn't I know this before?
I keep reading stuff online that mentions just like scar tissue and stuff, and I want to know what you guys think.
Have any of you ever had trouble with ear piercings when you switched earrings/didn't follow the rules?
example, I'm sitting here on the computer and I feel the pulsing in one tiny spot on my lip-or are those feelings something else, please explain, I find them odd
...I got one response to my last question and then it was quiet for a while, suddenly everybody else replies one right after the other.
Has anybody ever heard the radio show "The Message in Music"?
would you rather eat loveandwhsky's icon or conflabit's?
Do you avoid using those words for fear of sounding like an idiot?
I can't quite get "celebratory" or "applicable" right. Sometimes I mess up "vaginal."
Do you think that the placement of the sign was intentional...or am I just a dirty girl?
IF you do think it was intentional-
A)What exactly, is so dangerous about the area?
B)Or, is it what will happen if you enter that restricted area, that is dangerous?
(like my roommate)
we live on the second floor of an apartment building with all old, wooden floors. It's almost 2 AM and she's still stomping around like no one else lives (or sleeps) here.
GAH. maybe this bothers me too much? im going to bed.
What does you plus me equal?
( Collapse )
Where exactly do you think these people are going to go instead?
ETA: You can no longer create a new Basic Account. All new accounts have to have ads or be paid accounts. The problem isn't necessarily that they did it, but that they didn't really tell anyone that they were doing it and the advisory board told them it was a really shitty idea.
2. How many hours a day do I need to be home before I can seriously consider getting a kitty?
3. The school I'm currently attending has required me to live in school-approved housing (even off campus). Since I'm transferring, I want to move. What's the best way to find an apartment?
4. Is it common for landlords to not allow tenants to paint apartment walls?
Which is worse?
A. Water from a faucet going up your sleeve.
B. Toilet water back-splash on your bum when you poop.
How are you otherwise?
According to Bethany K. Dumas and Jonathan Lighter, an expression can be considered "true slang" if it meets at least two of the following criteria:
1) It lowers the dignity of formal or serious speech or writing.
2) Its use implies that the user is familiar with whatever is referred to, or with a group of people that are familiar with it and use the term.
3) It is a taboo term in ordinary discourse with people of a higher social status or greater responsibility.
4) It replaces a well known conventional synonym. This is done primarily to avoid the discomfort caused by the conventional item or by further elaboration.
I'm trying to brainstorm examples of slang words that fall into each of those four categories. For #4 I've thought of the words "swanky" and "swell", because they replace the words "elegant" and "good", but I'm stumped on the rest. Any ideas?
1: What movie have you only seen once, because you hated it and will NEVER watch it again?
2: How did you sleep last night?
3: Do you just tidy up or over-clean when you have guests coming over?
4: What is the next thing you plan on drinking?
5: Do you have a motivating thought to get you through the day?
1. you have seen/met online?
2. you have seen/met in real life?
3. you have heard stories of, but never met?
EDIT: I work for an after school program, so none of us really start work until 2, and the phone number she gave me is for her cell phone.
For those of you who have used Zicam, which kind did you use? How did it work? If you've used more than one kind, which worked best? I bought the ones that dissolve in your mouth because Target didn't have any of the ones you stick up your nose, but I have a feeling the nose ones work better.
Fill in the blank? If my life was like in the movies then _________________.
What are you doing this weekend TQC? specifics people! I want specifics.
Personally, I love her because she's awesome and she's become a great IRL friend to me.
So, TQC, why do you love our green receptionist?
We're 17, so we're just shy of drinking age. We could do stuff at home, rent DVDs or whatever, or go to the local shopping centre and muck around, maybe see a movie, go bowling, idk. He is being annoying and offering no input, but I want him to have fun.
What do 17-year old boys like doing?
Is it wrong to be PISSED that this same friend came over at 10 o'clock last night, completely unannounced, forced themselves into my house, and wouldn't leave for forty minutes, before which they camped in my house like it was theirs?
When was the last time you felt taken advantage of?
When was the last time you wanted to choke a bitch?
What do you bring now?
What should I bring on the 5 hour bus ride to Minneapolis today?
I'm hungover, my head hurts and I'm a little embarrassed that I went up to a guy I've met only twice previously, reintroduced myself and then called one of his friends a douchebag....after he bought me and my two friends a shot I really could've done without.
So, my questions this morning are:
1) When was the last time you woke up and KNEW you owed someone an apology? What did you do? Did they accept your apology?
2) Favorite hangover cure?
3) What's something you're thankful for today?
(Personally, I'm thankful my boss works from home on Friday and wasn't here to see me be an hour and a half last because I had to go pick up my car first...)
What the hell was she thinking?
Which (if any) of those do you think will actually happen?
If you're at work and using the restroom, and someone knocks on the door, do you make it a point to hurry up, or do you not care?
[assuming the restrooms at your workplace are for one person only]
So do I have to avoid the card games until I have a job?
How do you feel about ethpañol?
In addition to the yes or no answer -- how much difference are you comfortable with, and how much commonality?
As an edited aside: for example, I often see folk who would describe themselves as liberal say things like, "I could NEVER date a conservative! For x, y and z reason!" It's something I've never particularly understood -- probably because I'm a conservative who has almost exclusively dated liberals. :D
I think the oppositions make for the most fun and interesting conversations.
Like the kind that makes you want to puke.
I'm actually doing all I can NOT to gag.
Should I stay here (and finish work I need to do), or should I leave? DECIDE!
Don't these people notice that they smell like horribly unwashed fatfolds? D:
EDIT: MY ASS IS LEAVING.
Have you ever had homemade mayonnaise?
Any of you in school on or have had spring break yet? What is your most memorable spring break?
What would you suggest, besides the hookers and blow that I am concealing in my trunk?
Who's got recipies/sugestions for a delightful meal-type pie? Chicken pot has already been taken care of.
I'm not talking about when people's internet cuts out or whatever and they get disconnected... just random signing off and going about their day without even so much as a "gtg"?
Do your older relatives use too much punctuation in emails?
example, email from my mother reads:
If so, how many times?
Right now, I'm sitting here with about 2 reused tea bags and one new one in my cup. I'm slightly disgusted with myself lol
(I don't have extra money for a hotel because I was going to stay at the friend's house.)
What's the presumed origin of that term being commonly used as an acceptable term of endearment for an adult you're romantically involved with?
Do you personally find that it could potentially imply something condescending (even if unintended) about the person you're applying it to?
Do you call your current/past SOs "baby"?
Srs/nonsrs answers welcome.
How do you avoid passing out when you don't have the option of sitting down or resting? I've used the last of my sick days up and I don't want to pass out at work again.
what's for lunch?
2)what would happen if you did?
As far as hair goes, how long do you think is too long? Not for yourself but for people in general.
Did the butter kill my fish!? TT_TT
Also, where the heck are my keys?! I haven't seen them for two days, and I can't go to the store without them.
Can anyone recommend one for me? I'm looking for length and non-clumpy. I like the sort of fanned out look.
2) Do you have an accent? what kind?
Going on a budget so any recommendations or advice for things to do in the above cities?
Also, when I went to London with a friend, we stayed in a hostel overnight. It was cheap and comfortable and we had a good experience there. I am considering a hostel again as I need to stay overnight when in Turin. Only thing holding me back is I am a 25yr old single female. I'm a bit nervous about the security aspects of it. Anybody slept in a hostel by themselves? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks so much!
She told me everyone bathes with their pets to give them baths. 0_o Naked. O_O
She won't believe me when I tell her that *no one* does this.
TQC, do you bathe with your pets? Naked?
P.S. Spouses do not count as pet.
Science has discovered that intelligence is tied in with serotonin (for the sake of this question, just accept it). Too much of the latter reduces the former, and vice versa. They've also discovered ways to increase either one, which has now been releaed to the public. You can raise your intelligence by sacrificing some of your happiness, or increase your happiness/reduce your depression by lowering your intelligence, and this increase will guarrantee that you're never mopey or depressed again..What would you do?
I currently work for a telephone research company. Basically, I sit at a computer and a program dials hundreds of numbers for me, and each time someone picks up I have to convince them to take a survey over the phone. It's certainly not a difficult job, and it was even fun at first... but after three months, it's getting VERY old VERY fast. I'm sick of repeating the same introductions over and over, sick of angry people yelling that I've interrupted their dinner. I literally count the minutes until my shift is up.
Here's the catch, though -- my supervisors keep saying that a better position will be opening up soon. They can't give me any dates, so I don't know what "soon" means to them, but this new position will pay a little more and might actually be fun. I would be training new hires, helping callers with passwords and questions, listening to phone calls to make sure that everyone's doing their job properly. I think I might even be good at it. It seems like I'll definitely get the job when it opens up, too.
Should I stay at this job I hate, waiting for the promotion? Or should I just find another job I might like better? For instance, I've always wanted to try waitressing. I'd get a good workout and tips every night.
What do you think?
A)Wait a couple minutes in hopes he goes out the truck so I can get under the plastic to the fridge/freezer without feeling like I'm in the way-not to mention without inhaling the dust seeing as he's sanding right now?
B)Go outside and get some (white) snow?
have you come across any good-lookin' ones?
What's the most important thing you've learned from your mom?
1) For an assignment at university, I'm taking images centred on a colour and I have red.
What red things in the environment can I take images of ?
Please note I've already used:
- Traffic lights
- Blood [faked]
- Road signs
So other suggestions please?
2) When were you last hungover?
Today and yesterday. Only my third & fourth hangover, ever, mind you.
2a) What food shall I eat that won't make me heave today?
3) When did you last have sex?
4) To someone who has never eaten a radish, can you explain the taste?
5) Does Parmesan cheese taste as bad as it smells?
6) Anyone else completely psyched about the F1 season finally getting underway this weekend?
Me: That Dyson guy who makes the vacuums, haha. I love his commercials.
I was fired for the first time ever today and it sucks. Can you believe I got fired for calling out WITH DR's NOTES?!? Grrr It's not like it was even unexplainable either... I got the flu from a frigging patient and was out sick for it. So yeah, make me feel less depressed!
ETA: What they did is perfectly legal, NJ is an "at will" state... They can fire people for any or no reason at all... IT BLOWS!
I'm glad, because it's soothing for me to study when it's raining outside. And I can definitely use something soothing.
What's your favorite thing to do when it's raining outside?
I know a lot of you guys want to meet up with people in your area but for whatever reason, it just hasn't gotten around to happening yet.. what are your thoughts on a ~national~ TQC meet-up? or would you first want to meet-up with a few people from around your area before embarking on a ~national~ meet-up?

What can I do to entertain myself for those two hours? (Anything that would get me arrested for public indecency is out and Non-serious answers are fabulous.)
Then Google terminates your account because you're a potential hazard to advertisers because your members apparently clicked too many times (by too many they didn't mean hundreds of times. They meant like, someone decided to click once a day.)
What are other, non google money making options? A donate button won't 'work' because most of your membership are poor/in their teens. Yahoo ads won't work because I'm not American. You have Amazon links, but again that barely works because the membership are poor and aren't buying things on Amazon.
Know of any options?
Can you post a picture?
How much did you pay for your last oil change?

I would love to hear how this came about. Anyone care to make up a story?

So I'm stupid. I was invited to go to a get-together tonight, and I invited my friend (who knows the people hosting the get-together) if he wanted to come. AFTER that, I asked the host if it was okay (I know, stupid me) and the host says he already has enough people coming over and my friend can't come. Anyway... what do I say to my friend?

Last summer, I was seriously thinking about going back to college. I decided which one I really wanted to apply to and requested an information packet to be mailed to me. I did this back in July and never got the packet. So what do I get in the mail today? The info packet. Glad it took them 8 months to get that mailed to me.
I feel like it's about drugs and sexy-time, but I could be wrong.

Tell me about a disappointing experience you have had with cheese.
Should I apologize that I missed it and included it on my WSR?

You learn of all of their fancy little powers and everything, and you're given the opportunity to "embrace the darkness" or some gay shit like that--he said it, not me. Of course, what they don't realize is that you actually are a vampire hunter, sent to obliterate every last trace of those bloodsucking vampires from the face of the earth. But that one over there is pretty cute.
1 - Kill them all, fulfilling in yourself a sense of pride in a job well done?
2 - Kill them all aside from the really cute one, who you make half-vampire babies with?
3 - Convince them all to find Jesus?
4 - Use Charizard?
5 - Allow them to turn you, forsaking your oath as a hunter, so you can get with the cute one?
6 - Do not kill them, or allow them to turn you, but instead work with them as a mole?
7 - Look for a way to turn the cute one because half-vampire babies sound kinda gross and impossible?
8 - Turn off the game and go outside?
I've had a long week and a crappy day and I could use some cheering up.
Tell me, tqc - in fact, tell everyone - how do you take care of terrible, terrible chafing? You know the kind that I mean...

Alright then, in your nether regions, I mean! You know, the groinal area? 8*O
Okay, now that I'm done being embarrassed, I'm sure many of us can admit to having sexed it up heartier than maybe we realized, and ended up sore as a result. So, what's your favorite remedy for this *ahem* delicate problem?
What are the 23 flavors in Dr. Pepper?
Now let's say you have a friend, who is more like a co-worker. That friend says that even though you don't get drunk anymore, the fact that you would still do something sexual with someone while drunk means you probably don't really love the person, since it's in your subconscious. Or something.
Do you think this co-worker friend is right?
