The first time I heard the word "cunt" was in a movie (Reservoir Dogs?) when I was 19 years old. I haven't heard it very frequently since then, but I always figured it meant the same as "bitch," only with a stronger connotation. Similar to "stench" being a more passionate way to say "odor."

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 just got my ears pierced a week ago, and I'm doing all the cleaning and stuff, and everything's good. But I really want to wear some better earrings. Does it really matter if I switch earrings as long as I have the holes occupied?

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?

So, I'm doing a presentation on slang, and this is part of my presentation:

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?

general sickness & Zicam

In general what would be the earliest time I should call my supervisor to tell her I won't be coming to work today? I don't want to call too early, but I usually stop sounding sick around 9:30 AM and I don't want her to think I'm a big faker.

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.

GUUYYYYZZZZ.....OW!!!!!

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...)

Ok, I have a stupid question to ask you people.  People in my family smoke pot while we play card games on Friday and Saturday nights.  Is the secondhand smoke enough to trigger a positive drug test for me?  I am looking for a job, and I will probably have to take a drug test at some time in the near future.

So do I have to avoid the card games until I have a job?

Do opposites really attract?

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.

No one puts Baby in a corner!

So my SO and I were talking today about using the word "baby" as a term of endearment for a lover/mate, and it occurred to me that even though it's pretty common now, it strikes me as...a little odd to use in that context, since otherwise it's used to refer to an infant.

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"?

God bless Ryanair

Thanks to RyanAir, next month i am going to be a busy wee bee when I go to Oslo, Turin and Shannon. Each trip is only really for a day but I'm really looking forward to it.

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!

Hey TQC, I need your career advice.  This may be a little teal dear, sorry.

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?

So you have a website, a forum. And you added google adsense ads to it.

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?

I found out this evening that my motherboard and fan on my laptop are completely gone. (when the fan gets going it sounds like a jet plane). There are people coming to me on Tuesday or Wednesday to replace and fix the new parts, but I need to back all of my files up. What I am most concerned about is my music collection - almost eight gigs. If I keep what I have on my iPod there, will there be a way for the files to transfer from there onto my computer? My iPod is very tiny and can't hold all eight gigs, but I can try to put the rest on a flash drive. I just don't want to lose my music - everything else is slightly less important (the computer is only about eleven months old and I don't have many documents saved - I can email those to myself or put them on a flash drive).

You've been out walking, and enjoying the sights of whatever city you happen to be living in at the time, whenever it starts to rain. You run into the first public building you see, which happens to be some kind of hip, underground club for hip and underground types. As you begin to socialize, because standing in the doorway is obviously the most suspicious thing you could with this group of hip and underground people, you learn that these people all have one major thing in common: they're vampires [not the gay, Anne Rice type either. Just your "standard" vampire].

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.

Do you:
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?

So let's say you're the sexual kind of drunk, right? You can't help it, if you get shit-faced, it just happens. So, now you're in a serious relationship you stop drinking because you know if you did, you would most probably end up doing something regretful.

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?

Why does Firefox tell me "slayed" is spelled incorrectly? What is the past tense of slay, from the POV of the slayer? The one who gets "slayed" has been slain, but what is the past tense of the verb that the slayer does? hahahahahaha.

1. Are thigh high stockings sexy to you? I think they are, but I'm too afraid to wear them because they'll slide down, and I'm not really into garter belts and the like.

2. What is the most ridiculous thing you've done to please a partner? Sexually or otherwise, and funny answers encouraged.

3. How can I make my hair not look like ass until April 29th? It's growing out and I have about 2 inches of roots, but I won't let anyone other than my hairdresser touch it.

4. What's your favorite dessert?

5. Which free phone should I get when I renew my T-Mobile plan? Choices here. this is the phone I have now.

I'm in charge of fund raising for my son's school's PTO....we want to have a "Vendor Fair" but have NO idea how to go about doing one.

Do we charge for the tables alone?
Do we charge a percentage of the vendors sales?
Do we do both?

Has anyone ever run a fair? How successful was it...we normally want to raise about $10,000 to $14,000.

I need some computer help and I haven't been able to find this on Google. I have a folder in Windows Vista with over 600 items in it. I want to send someone the list of what's in this folder. How can I do that without typing everything out in WordPad? That would take forever. Is there a way to copy and paste just the names of the files into Wordpad?

What is the most you'd be willing to pay for 2-year from date of purchase laptop insurance? IE. You don't pay for shipping, labor, or parts if something breaks.

3-year insurance?

When does it become cheaper to just go get another one?

Would your answers change if you'd had two laptops suffer severe issues requiring repair shortly before the inital 1-year warranty was up?

I asked the same question a week ago

Is there anybody who lives in DC who wants to be my irlz friend?

I'm that pathetic that I have to look for friends in random large communities.
