Has anyone ever questioned your reasons for entering into a relationship?

You know someone on an internet forum is a soldier currently in Iraq. Do you get concerned when they suddenly go inactive on the site and never come back? Or do you just figure they got busy with life/bored of the forum?

do you ever wonder whether or not colors are perceived the same way by everyone?
if yes, what do you think the answer is?

edit: I didn't really mean color blindness, or anything where someone has an issue differentiating colors, I just mean if people see each individual color differently than every other person. where it wouldn't cause a problem in differentiation. it would just be different if you were ever to see through a different person's eyes.

So there's been a bunch of questions about murder...
I was always under the impression that only psychos killed people but apparently non-psychotic people kill as well.

How do you rationalize a seemingly normal person killing someone?
Do you think you could kill someone?
Do you think that maybe killing is normal (ie a part of human survival) and that we've made it taboo in order to make society work?

Dear TQC;

What song would you have sweet, romantic fuckings to?

Bjork - All Is Full of Love....I'd be thinking about lesbian robots the whole time, though.

What song would you have angry, violent/sweaty fuckings to?

Meshugga - Bleed.

Can you call a song a "tribute" when it's a ripoff of two classics whose brilliance you'll never equal?  Especially when you steal outright the melodies, but change the lyrics to yet another vain account of your skanky, white trash youth?

I was wondering how this worked.

Take for example WoW. It obviously has to send data between the client and the server, but how does it make it so it's hard (impossible?) for someone to just... make another application to send that data saying "I've just picked up thousands of gold"?

Anyone point me in the right direction? I don't mind researching, but I don't know where to start looking.

Dear TQC:

I have lain in bed for an hour, trying unsuccessfully to fall asleep. It is now 4 AM.

Should I just go in the living room and play Super Smash Brothers instead, until I'm actually tired?


Alternatively, how do YOU fall asleep, when you're not particularly sleepy?

I have a really drunk boyfriend thrashing round in my bed right now.

Eventually he's gonna tire and pass out.

Should I risk sleeping in the bed with him and having a very disturbed sleep and possibly waking up with vomit in my hair, or sleep in the loft bed which is probably full of spiders and has no blankets?

It's winter and 4am here if that changes anyone's decision.

Do you have a friend/SO that's piss annoying when they're drunk? What do they do? Any good stories?

Laundry Detergent Staining Clothes

I've had twice now where my laundry detergent has stained some clothes to the point they aren't wearable anymore. What am I doing wrong that causes this?

I've been using white powder (Tide) detergent so far, and this rarely happens, but when it does I can't do anything to get rid of the stains. It also never stains an entire load, just one or two items. (Shorts once, a sweater once.) Am I using too much detergent (I use the recommended amount on the box), or is it the fabric, or should I switch to liquid?

I'm guessing it's really stupid, but I'm a college kid! I'm learning. :/

Imagine you are watching television as they draw the winning lotto numbers. You have your ticket in hand and check off each number as it gets called. When they call all six numbers let's say, you look and see that you have all six numbers on the lotto ticket checked off.

In other words, you just won.

What do you think would be running through your head? What would be your first reactions as it sinks in?

Let's pretend you won, once taxes are taken out, $10 million. What do you think you would do with the money?

How do you turn off your brain? When I have a problem I tend to over-analyze and obsess about it. I will lie awake at night thinking about it and fretting over the worst case scenarios and I won't get any sleep. Luckily this doesn't happen with minor stuff, but if I have a major fight with my boyfriend, for example, I will sit and stew about it and then wake up the next morning with the problem still on my mind. The only thing I've found that allows me not to think about it is sleep or pot and sometimes I won't be able to get to sleep without the pot. :\ What helps you not think/worry about stuff?

Is London really that pushy?

If I were to have a bake sale to raise money for my friends ticket to England, how should I put out flyers? What should they say on them?

Should I give it another chance?

I went on a date with a guy and felt no chemistry toward him whatsoever, then I felt uncomfortable when he sat in the same armchair I was sitting in and moved away from him when he started trying to make moves on me. Then he asked me if I wanted to start a relationship and I kept saying "I don't know" but I couldn't come up with a specific reason why. I just feel nothing toward him and I really don't care to pursue a relationship simply because I want "a" boyfriend. But he really wanted to get together again so I tentatively agreed. We had been talking on Myspace and now I am afraid to even go on Myspace and check my messages, and it's been two days.

Should I give it another chance or is feeling *this* uncomfortable after one date indicative that it's not going to work? I feel like staying very far away from him and never seeing him again at this point, but there is no particular reason why.

thesis projects

So, I'm working on my Masters Thesis. the topic is about medieval cloisters and how those transported to the US (the Cloisters in NYC, and there is a cloister gallery here at the Toledo Museum of Art) still retain much of their intended purpose as a 'spiritual place' even though they are far removed from their original location and time. I don't want to make it a big paper, but some sort of fun and creative project. Any ideas on a project? I was thinking of doing a website, but that might be beyond my means. I just can't come up with a starter idea.

Has anyone else done a big project for a thesis/degree? What interesting things did you do?

Many people find strength in an external God.
Does anyone here find strength in internal Gods? Aspects of themselves that they've given a name, maybe a face, or a feeling to so that they can engage in dialogue with?

Ex: I seem to have personified 'hope'...and in moments of weakness I rely on/interact with this internal hope element which motivates me to keep going, and tells me that it'll be OK, that I need to hang in there etc...

Tell me about them? What do they mean to you? Who are they? Any interesting insights or self-discoveries by engaging in dialogue with them?

TQC, I've been feeling pretty down the last week or so. It's my birthday tomorrow & I want to buy myself something. Fuck that I don't have the money, I deserve something nice to cheer myself up.

The soap at my work makes my hands bust out in some sort of horrible painful rash that goes up my arms. I asked if I could use hand sanitizer and got no response (my boss gave me this smug kind of look and said that it was 'just Dawn dish soap' and then left). I thought it would be better to ask first, as I work in concessions (sometimes) at a theater and some people think that hand sanitizer isn't as good, blah blah blah.

What would you do in this situation? I wash my hands more than anyone else there that I've seen, because, I don't know, it's gross not to. Should I use hand sanitizer anyways? Should I bring some soap from home? Should I suck it up and keep using the soap here? It hurts really fucking bad, and got red and painful six hours later when I got in the shower, and they were still red and blotchy when I got up this morning. It's since gone away almost completely. I know it's the soap because it happens right after I wash my hands. I put lotion on after I wash my hands because I have a tendency to dry out and crack, but it burns before I put the lotion on.

Do any of you have a sensitivity to soap? Am I just being a wuss?


When I eat Junior Mints I have to squish them to make sure they're not hard. Do you have any weird eating rituals?

Edit: I shouldn't go in to pet stores because seeing the animals there makes me want to cry because I want to take them all home. :( Do you get sad, too?

I just got asked by my new neighbours if I could change my music (Slipknot) to "something nice" because their kids are playing on the veranda next door, which is very close to my window & speakers.

1. I went to a chamber music performance last night and was wondering two things: Is it awkward to be playing an instrument and have to turn the pages of your sheet music yourself? (There was no little boy turning the pages for them; what if the end of the page is some really ridiculous difficult passage? What then?) Also, how come there isn't technology for an electronic screen which shows the score scrolling along at the right pace (or is there)?

2. I'm trying to forget my first man-friend by moving on to man-friend #2. Do I seduce: hot middle-aged pizza parlor employee (this is not a joke; the pizza is really good and this man is totally classy)?

When you hear that someone has commited suicide what do you think?

A look into your thoughts of suicide

When you hear about people committing suicide, what do you think? What goes through your mind? Do you think "Man, he/she was a coward"? "Another soldier in life down"? "What a selfish person, do they not know the effects that it has on their loved ones?"

Do you look at it like while it is a sad occasion/decision that it took bravery to go through with it? After all it is far easier to find people who are scared of dieing, or love life then it is to find someone who is ready or not afraid of death. Like, maybe you don't approve of their choice, but you respect the fact that for whatever reason they felt they had to commit suicide and it took courage to go through it?

Do you feel like its impossible to know what someone has been through and it isn't your place to judge? Sometimes the best Pep-Talks will never change the fact of how someone feels the way they do or the hopelessness they see all around them.

What are your thoughts?

Computer Help

I'm thinking of getting a new desktop computer. I don't know a lot about computers but the website I'm looking at buying from lets me choose processor speed, ram size and so on...The question is, which is better for everyday multitasking use, a big ram or a big processor?

Wtf broken fridge

TQC, my fridge is broken. I think that either somehow it's become unplugged, or something. I don't know. Anyway, what's going on is, the freezer which was once like a giant block of ice is now melting and leaking all over the kitchen. I've told 2 workers at the apartment complex, and they claim that no one will come to fix it until tomorrow. I've already sent an e-mail to the dean at my study abroad program explaining that my roommates and I refuse to pay for any damage caused by the slow response, but no one has gotten back to me. I'm not too worried about our food, but our kitchen floor is covered in towels and I'm really getting nervous.

I just bought a super-cheap demo 19" LCD monitor for $140 and hooked it up to my laptop. I've used dual screens a couple times before, but never extensively. I already had my mouse set to the highest speed, but it's still annoying to move between the two screens. Is there some kind of utility out there for Windows XP that when I press a button (like one of the back/forward ones on the side of my mouse) will move the cursor to the same position on the other screen? Are there any other cool toys out there that will make the experience cooler, more fun, or more productive?

Open Journals

What made you change your journal from public to friends only? What pushes you to that, especially if you're a fairly open person?

For me, an old flame with whom I was under the impression our relationship was over again, called me to have a drink and "we need to talk". They found out I put up a profile on Match.com and that I had gone out on a date from rifling through my journal and TQC comments. The decided to confront me with a "caught ya" attitude, even though we had not seen each other in over a month. Much as I hated to do it, as I love spouting my opinion, I don't like feeling violated or watch, and at the same time, I want to leave it public and say "careful what you look for".

More Questions!

So.. I gave my two weeks at the job that i have been at for a year and a half. I love the people, the actual work is ok. I have my reasons for leaving. Last week my friend decided to tell her manager that i was interested in a job, (when really i was just saying how i MIGHT be considering it AFTER i had finished this other job.) So, this new job is crappy and i don't enjoy it all that much. And i told my parents and they were saying how i could just revoke my two weeks and stay. A few people at work told me that i should stay. Today i decided i would do that and stay, but i didn't get the chance to pull the manager aside and talk to him. When i get home, i get a call for an interview with a company my other friend works at and she told me she'd talk to her manager but i hadn't heard anything for over 2 months until today.

So, what do i do?
Do i stay at my current job, and get past the minor details? I make ok money there.
Do i go to the interview, cause its JUST an interview and it doesn't mean a job?
WHAT DO I DOO?!?!

And also.. How dumb am i for doing this? I seriously thought i had thought things through...

A neighbor, her baby and their golden retriever are in the living room on the couch. The dog, in his usual spot, is barking at a squirrel outside the window. the 14 month old baby startles him from behind, and the dog whips around, growls, and bites the baby's face.
THe mother, who had turned around during that instant, sees the dog attacking the baby and pulls the dog off and calls for help. Help rushes over, takes the baby, cleans her up, while the dog is put outside. The mother, hysterical, takes the baby to the hospital. (luckily, the baby did not need stitches or shots.) An hour or so after the incident, the dog is let back into the house because he is barking outside.

If you were my new boyfriend, would you be uncomfortable with pictures of my ex in my room?


edit: Okay, what if I had spent hours over a big photo collage and framed and hung it on the wall.. the pictures were of my time travelling and he was in all of them because we did it together, but it also shows my time away so it's not dedicated to him or anything. Do I have to take that down too?

What's a really funny thing that's happened to you recently?

For example, I work in at the same place as my sister and this new girl started to gossip about the bitchy girl beside her. I had to politely inform her it was my sister, but that I wasn't offended because she kind of is a bitch.

Okay so...I don't understand how to tell directions. I don't know where east, west, north and south is. I only understand left, right, up and down. Can you explain it to me? My grandpa tried but failed. I looked it up and I still don't get it. I just have no sense of direction, at all. Help? I'll give you cookies : ]

There is a MASSIVE spider in my house. My cat is currently chasing it around, but keeps batting at it rather than eating it. I've fled upstairs. Should I try to:

a. Put on some shoes/protective gear, go back downstairs, hunt it down, and throw something at it

or

b. Stay up here, in hopes that my cat eats it by tomorrow (and that I don't get hungry between now and then)?


Other suggestions also welcome.

ETA: I just looked downstairs, and my cat is sitting placidly. DID SHE ALREADY EAT IT??? OR IS IT LURKING UNDER THE COUCH?!


Never mind. I just saw my cat eating it, hooray! This is why I like having pets.

Stop! Grammar time!

What are your grammar peeves?

Do you hold your tongue when you see bad grammar in a post or comment in a community if you're not already interacting with that person?

Do you hold your tongue when you see bad grammar from a person on your friends list whose feelings you don't want to hurt?

Unrelatedly, what was the last (or any) funny thing you said that you said that you were proud of? Do you laugh at your own humor?





I cringe so effing hard when I see things like "Today is Bob and i's anniversary." *shudder* WHY is this phrase so hard for people to get?

I also hate when people incorrectly add commas, like "Today, was fun."

Let's say that after people die, they are reincarnated. In fact, the life you are living now is a reincarnation. You have lived dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of lives since the dawn of humankind. You might have been there with the very first Homo sapiens, or maybe you started living on earth a little later, say, around the birth of Jesus. Or maybe this is your first life.

Let's also say that heaven exists, and it's where you were before you began your first life on earth, and it's where you will be after your last. It's very much like life right now, or even in the future, with all the conveniences and luxury items that humanity will ever feel they "need."

Before you began life on earth, God said that you could pick one thing that you would never have to live without, no matter what your hardships were.

What was your answer?

ETA: This is an item that you would never have to live without in any of your lives. So if you couldn't live without your electric toaster, then you would begin life on earth after the invention of the electric toaster.

ETA 2: Okay, okay, we're talking material objects here. And among those, luxury items. My fault for not specifying it, so those who caught me can keep your happiness. :p
