feel free to ignore my local frustration

so hai, yall, i work at a small market radio station.


so why did some person call up at 7:30 pm tonight, asking to speak to the dj, so that they could do some advertising for their restaurant that was opening this weekend?


really - are people that fucking stupid that they assume:

1) we are going to give them advertising for free?
2) that advertising that weekend, the weekend they opened, was going to give them results?
3) that it would have done them absolutely no good to advertise where they were, what they were, or when they were opening, BEFORE the weekend  they opened?

If you order an alcoholic drink at a bar/restaurant/whatever and it's too strong, weak, just plain nasty tasting, or not what you ordered, do you take it or send it back?

Why or why not?

If you do, how much of it do you drink before you take it back?

Is there a certain point at which you've realized you've already drank "X" amount of it and you just deal with it? (And how much is that "X"?)

So the other day I found Sims and a few expansions for sale uber cheap so I got Sims Deluxe Edition, Makin Magic, and Expansion Pack Vol 1 (Unleashed and House Party).

I just installed them all and I've got the Sims Disc 1 in the drive and trying to play and it keeps asking for the correct cd. What the hell is going on?

Nevermind

I finished off a 300mL bottle of 6.5% sake with a bag of cheesy poofs about an hour ago. I'm female with a low body fat %. That is 39mL of alcohol and about 13mL/pint of blood. Not so drunk that I can't do algebra and I don't feel drunk and I'd like to pick my boyfriend up from work but I have been drinking. Decide my fate TQC!

Does anyone know how to calculate BAC from a known alcohol % and body mass?

Never mind he got his own ride home. >=\ How is spring break so far? I got Mexican food for lunch then went to see my friend's stuff at a in gallery downtown. It was in 3-D!!!

1. How do you relate to people that are otherwise nice, but are dumb (in a very direct sense of intelligence and/or memory)?

That is, their lack of intelligence causes them to often be annoying, because they try to defend stupid propositions as if they were a reasonably intelligent person.

EDIT: 2. Is there a semi-polite way of telling such a person that they aren't that bright so that they don't remain so oblivious to their own stupidity?

I realize that this is probably asking a lot. If there was a good solution, then maybe we could prevent the stupids from running rampant in society.

3. FICTION RECOMMENDATIONS. What good utopian/dystopian works of fiction (not necessarily books) are there that concern a society with a class system based on intelligence?

If you were dating someone for a few months and then discovered they were hiding a physical deformity, like a missing leg* or something, would you break up with them because it grossed you out? Would you break up with them because they'd been actively hiding it from you? Would you stay with them and not care?

*let's ignore how they managed to hide it from you. Maybe they're just really skilled.


This isn't meant to be an insensitive prick of a post. It was inspired by an argument one of my friends related to me and I'm not sure whether I agree with him or not. I need the masses to tell me what I think.

Frozen Peas

What can I do so that my frozen peas don't freeze into one big lump after I open the bag? I usually have to bang the bag on the counter a few time to break up the lump, and even then, it's not very effective. I close the bag securely and even put a rubber band around it but it doesn't seem to help. I just want the peas to flow out like they do when the bag is new! Am I asking too much?

What is a good website for cute kitchenware?


So my moms driving me nuts. Instead of getting my tits fixed if this job pulls through, I'm thinking of moving out. I've got a sweet TV, DVD player and bedroom furniture. That leaves a few loose ends to tie up furniture wise. I'm going to have to go to the Dallas metroplex regardless because my town is so limited. I don't want an Ikea sofa. All I'll really need in the long run I think is a sofa, coffee table and TV stand. A small kitchen table and replacement desk can wait for a while. I'll be wrangling up all of my own furniture because either I live alone or I don't move out at all. I'd feel inclined to slaughter a roommate I'm sure.

TQC, I have a Zune.

At my job (retail), we're allowed to play whatever music we want in the store. Thing is, our stereo that hooks up to the ceiling's speakers only has a CD player- no place for an input cable, and no cassette player.

Any ideas how I can play music via Zune over the speakers? If it's complicated, I'll just burn some CDs... I just really rather not.

i'm so vain.

so i need glasses, real bad. however, a lot of pairs look weird on me & the notion of contacts scare me.

i have a big head, & a very strong jaw. what kind of glasses would suit my face? thick rims, square lenses, or what?

Cover songs

What cover songs do you love?
Which ones do you hate?
If you could pick a band to do a cover song, which band and what song?

Personally, I loved Disturbed's version of Genesis' " Land of Confusion". And I don't like Disturbed. At all. But I love me the Genesis and Phil Collins and have to admit they did a good job.

I hate Alien Ant Farm's version of "Smooth Criminal" simply because it came out when I was in middle school and I got SO MUCH SHIT. My name is Annie. Everyone thought it was just the most hilarious thing in the world to ask me if I was okay. Harumph.

I would like to hear Dragonforce cover John Denver's " Annie's Song". I love that song, I love Dragonforce, and because of my name. I would shit kittens and rainbows if they covered that song.

Because the search function is broken...

I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times before, so feel free to ignore it if you're tired of answering.

What do you do when you care about a friend, but she just makes horrible choices for herself?

Well, *my* interpretation of horrible. It's primarily centered on her boyfriend, who is just... a moron and a jerk. He's racist (She's latino, and he referred to their baby as "half a spic"), he gave her an STD, he slapped her around when she was nine months pregnant.. etc. She had me come to their apartment after having a huge fight while she was pregnant (As soon as I got there I saw huge hole they'd made in the wall), and she sobbed, saying that she didn't want him anywhere near the baby, she didn't trust him, she hated him, etc. But a month later she says "We're going to marriage counseling." The baby is named after him, she just put all of these pictures of him up on her Myspace..

I'm trying to be supportive, but it is really aggravating me that she's putting up with this. Should I just shut up and be friends with her, but not hang around him (which I already do, but since she had the baby, they're always together)? I think she's afraid that she can't provide for the baby on her own, and it's just easier to stay with him.. but MARRIAGE??

Or am I just overreacting? How long does it take a person to change?

riddle me this

Once upon a time there lived a king. The king had a beautiful daughter, the PRINCESS. There was a problem though - everything the princess touched would melt. It didn’t matter what it was made of: metal, wood, stone… anything she touched would melt.
Because of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would dare marry her. The king despaired. What could he do to help his daughter? He consulted his wizards and magicians. One wizard told the king, “If your daughter touches one thing that does not melt in her hands, she will be cured.” The king was overjoyed and came up with a plan.
The next day, he held a competition. Any man who could bring his daughter an object that would not melt would marry her and inherit the king’s wealth.

Three young princes took the challenge.

The first brought a sword of the finest steel. But alas, when the princess touched it, it melted. The prince went away sadly.
The second prince brought diamonds. He thought diamonds were the hardest substance in the world and would not melt. But alas, once the princess touched them, they melted. He too was sent away disappointed.
The third prince approached. He told the princess, “Put your hand in my pocket and feel what is in there.” The princess did as she was told, though she turned red. She felt something hard. She held it in her hand.

And it did not melt!!!

The king was overjoyed. Everybody in the kingdom was overjoyed! And the third prince married the princess and they both lived happily ever after.

Why do condoms fail?

With perfect usage, why do condoms still manage to fail? 

This is confusing the fuck out me.

Under perfect usage, they are about 98% effective (source). This figure seems too low for latex--a rather impermeable material.

Unless I've greatly misunderstood things, perfect usage means that a given condom is used once, hasn't been torn/ripped, the right size was used, and was properly put on.  In testing, condoms are filled with 1+ liters of water and stand up to the pressure just fine without leaking.

EDIT: The only thing that makes sense here is that 'perfect use' only refers to humans doing their part correctly, but the condom not being manufactured quite right and breaking. Is this correct? It's not entirely clear what the definition of 'perfect use' is.


Perfect use = humans doing their part correctly, ignoring manufacturing failures.

EDIT 2: Are these stats for perfect usage the probability of pregnancy for SINGLE use, or for use over some period (many studies test over 6 months from that I checked)?

The statistics are for 1-year failure rates.

Even with microscopic tears forming in perfect use, that would only let a miniscule amount of spermatozoa through and an egg needs a good amount of that ejaculate to get through (2ml of ejaculate should have at least 40 million sperm)...with microtears only letting through a small fraction of a percent.  And even with that many sperm from a full ejaculate getting through, people often don't get pregnant on the first try.

Microtears are not a significant factor, like I suspected.

I boiled a dozen eggs this evening (but one broke in the pot), planning to make deviled eggs for tomorrow. But... apparently, they didn't boil hard enough. I've tried to peel a few and the white broke on every one of them. I peeled one of them fully and the white was totally broken so I could see that, although the yolk was firm, it was still very bright yellow and not quite solid on the inside.


So. Um. Are they salvageable? Or did I just waste a whole dozen eggs? :(

Non-serious answers expected

TQC, I hate bad interviewees. Don't get me wrong: candidates that actually have potential make for pleasant interviews. But if somebody's application and references check out, but they turn out to be a complete and utter waste of time, it really kind of aggravates me.

What are some strange interview-like questions I can ask that will get them to go away quickly?

Edit: The reason I ask is because I gave 5 interviews today. One was impressive, two were decent, one was just okay, and one made me want to pull my own hair out.

When I asked the kid "Why should I hire you? What makes you a good employee?", he stared at his shoes for at least 28 seconds, and then responded, "I thought about that question before I came here...and I really don't have an answer for that."

4 srs question tyme?

i believe one of my good friends may "like" me. which could be a very good thing, but i a) am not particularly "lol in like" with her, and b) am very likely just imagining non-existent feelings for me. i've noticed things like this before with other friends, but i usually just play it safe and ignore it till it goes away.

anyways, here's the question. how do i found out whether or not she actually "likes" me, without making it incredibly awkward if she doesn't? also without making it seem like i "like" her, and making things 10000x creepier. she's one of my best friends and we play in a band together, so i don't want to make her be all creeped out by me cause "matt was hitting on me and it was creepy T_T".

i'm done posting q's for a while after today.

tomorrow's easter!

are you a peep person, or no? i personally find them disgusting. i heard putting them in the microwave tastes great, but ugh. target has special red ones now so you can make what would look like big, bloody pus balls.

if you're with me, what easter sweets/candies do you prefer? cadbury eggs!, but the little colorful shelled ones.

does anyone know where i can find info on cheap cross country (USA) bus tours? hopefully at least one of you has gone on one and can let me know about pricing, length of the trip, your experiences, and so on. would you recommend it, or would you recommend driving your own car or a motor home and camping out instead?

1.) ETA: I currently really, really, really hate both United and Northwest [Airlines] right now. Have you ever had absolutely impeccable customer service somewhere? Stories?

2.) I was replying to another question and it raised the following question:

How do you pluralize a compound subject in a sentence?

EX: I'm Yours has been [the song of my boyfriend and I as a couple] forever.
A. I'm Yours has been my boyfriend and my song forever.

B. I'm Yours has been my boyfriend's and my song forever.
C. I'm Yours has been my boyfriend and mine song forever.
D. I'm Yours has been my boyfriend's and mine song forever.


Thanks! It is definitely B!

I just  finished watching I am Legend, I didn't really like the ending all that much. So my questions are:

1. Did you see it?
2. Did you like the ending? Or the entire movie for that matter...
3. Why or why not?
