Hi, TQC.

I am a practicing entomologist and numismatist who has recently landed in dire financial straits due to some unexpected complications in my wife's pregnancy. To tide the family over during these hard times, I grudgingly pawned both my collection of rare African beetle specimens and the prize of my coin collection, a 7th-century Norwegian nickel that was once flipped by the legendary King Olaf himself. Now things are looking up: thanks to a well-timed government grant, I have enough money to buy back one of these two items.

Should I go for the beetles, or should I get my nickel back?

Here's a question that's been bothering me.

Why is it, when a guy kisses a girl, everything is peachy, then the next night when the girl kisses him, it's going too fast?

To edit for clarification. Say a guy kisses a girl. Then, the next night, the girl kisses the same guy. Said guy freaks out, and says it's going too fast.

How does that make sense?

So, recently a friend and I swapped a pair of earrings (he wanted curved barbells and I wanted studs). I started wearing them and everything was fine until last week when my ears started getting sore around said earrings. I took them out and looked and it looks like the silver is wearing off one, exposing what looks like copper underneath.

Assuming that I'm allergic to the metal, is there anything I can coat them with so my ears don't freak out? I've heard of putting clear nail polish on belt buckles, but I'm not sure if it'd be safe to do to earrings.

Also, before anyone asks, yes, I cleaned them before I started wearing them.

I work as a building services assistant in my dorm. Which basically means that if someone needs a broom, they come to me. If someone needs a light bulb, they come to me. If something breaks in someone's room....well, you get the picture.

Anyway. I am not "on duty" 24/7. I am a full-time student just like everyone else in the building, and I have early-morning classes. As such, I tend to go to bed around 11-11:30 most nights.

In the past few weeks, a few people have seen fit to bang on my door at midnight, 1 AM, and in one memorable case 2:30 AM, for completely inane things (I'm sorry, but you can wait until morning for a broom unless you have broken glass on your floor. Spilling hot chocolate powder? For the love of Christ, go get a paper towel. You'll live till morning, k?) Anyway, I got sort of pissy at people, considering the fact that they were waking me up for ridiculous reasons and really, not emergencies at all, so I put up a sign outside my room informing people that I am not on duty 24/7, and asking them not to knock on my door past 11 at night, and instead asked them to leave a message on my whiteboard if they needed to.

A girl on my floor (who consistently wakes me at all hours of the night knocking on my door, even after sending me MSN messages asking if I'm awake and getting no reply), apparently thinks my sign is "immature" and that if this is my job, then I should be available at any hour of the day or night. I say I'm not getting paid enough to put up with people looking for fucking brooms at 2 AM.

What say you, TQC? Was my reaction reasonable? Or am I being a total bitch for not wanting to be woken up in the middle of the night by people who apparently think that just because they never go to bed, no one else does either?

I've gotten a job as a waitress at a huge outdoors restaurant down at the dock here in Oslo. They serve cold beverages, wine, spirits, pizzas and salads. It's a very casual sort of place where most of the staff are people around my age, 20 - 25 year old.

Online movie and game rentals.

In a week, I'm moving to an island that has very little in the way of entertainment. No video game stores, no movie theaters, no game and movie rental places. The only way to get access to that kind of thing is a 75 minute ferry ride to the mainland, which can get pricey if you do it a whole lot.

So, the logical step would be to find something I can do online (because I'll still have high-speed internet, thank god!). I'm looking into Netflix or Blockbuster Online, stuff like that. I had a Gamefly account before and I was pretty pleased with it, so I think I might go back to them if I can't find a better deal.

Do any of you use online movie and/or game rentals? If so, what do you use and how do you like it?

rape

strange, yet relevant question.

the local "clinically insane" girl at my school is threatening to rape me. seeing as she's clinically insane, i don't doubt her for a second.

the question is this: besides the obvious "strap-on, LOL", is there actually a physical way for a woman to rape (being defined as penoo on vagoo action) a man? i mean he kindof sortof has to get hard first but...?

also, what signs should i be looking for before i GTFO and save myself from rape?

EDIT: i should mention that she's stronger than i am, and the first time she said she was going to rape me, she pulled me into a tiny, secluded room, and said she was going to rape me. i didn't fight back due to being mostly a pacifist and being suprised. regardless, this means that she could basically position me anyway she wants, for optimal rapage.

Let's say that you find yourself in the bathroom of your former lover's house, in the tub, and the tub is being slowly filled with cement. You can't actually get out of the tub, for reasons that have yet to dawn on your heavily drugged mind. Your former lover says things, convoluted things telling you of "what could have been" and how "you shouldn't'a oughta done that" and how it was "a real bad thing, George." then he giggles at the bad jokes that you can't comprehend yet. The drugs start to wear off as you realize there's a strong, quite uncomfortable pain on your right side, your right arm. You turn your head to see, only to learn that you don't, in fact, have an arm.

You try to scream, but you find that your mouth has been gagged with a cloth and covered with something that is probably duct tape. You can just tell it's grey, not anything else. You try to use your other arm, only to find that it, too, has been removed. Your eyes focus a bit more and you see, taped to the wall of the shower, are your arms. Again, you try to scream. You hear an annoyed groan from your former lover as he finishes pouring the cement into the tub. You trash your legs and torso about, only to be met with a very angry man with a large blunt object in his hand. He chuckles softly, and moves towards you with a syringe in his hand, filled with a liquid that you can assume is not there to make your arms grow back. But, in a twist, he sets down the needle and grabs you by the throat. You feel the cement hardening, slowly but surely, and you realize that you've essentially lost all change for escape.

You desperately try to kick your legs out of the cement, but they must be bound, as they aren't moving. You don't want to panic, since that's just gonna make everything that's happened worse, but you don't know what else to do.

He grabs hold of the tape, and rips it off your mouth. Before you can scream, he muffles you with a hand that smells like the cement and gas and many other things. You choke of the fumes of it all. "Now, before I go ahead and just let you die here," he says, "I gotta question for you."

You arch an eyebrow to show you want to know what it is.

I'm a member of a knitting group that meets about once a week in different places around the city.

The organizer has been totally awesome in the past, but has recently been dropping the ball - not showing up to meetings, not planning meetings, not answering emails, etc.

I had emailed her about a month ago, offering whatever help she needed (hell, I'd even take over the group at this point) and she emailed me back saying thanks and that we'd talk about it at the next meeting. Well, she wasn't at the next meeting, and there aren't any more scheduled.

Would it be inappropriate for me to email her again and volunteer my services or would that be overstepping my bounds?

What kind of bird is this that's sitting outside my front door? What kind of human food would it eat? It doesn't look hurt, should I just leave it there being cold and miserable or should I bring it inside?





[edit T+25m]

I've brought it inside, in a shoebox (deepest thing I could find) with it nested on top of a couple washrags. I've given it water and some tiny pieces of a wheat hamburger bun (also about all I could find - yay bachelor life). When I picked it up it started screaming and I thought it was just scared, but after I got it into the light for closer inspection it looks worse for wear. A couple people noted molting on its back, and there is a harsh red raw strip between its wings. When I touch its right wing it screams again, so that may be broken. Stroking its head seemed to calm it down a bit. Further updates will be in my personal journal, here.



[edit T+70m]

I got in touch with a wildlife rescue operation, I'll be taking it downtown tomorrow to hand over to them. They said to not give it food or water, as that might hurt it more. Otherwise, you guys were right on track - warm, dark, and quiet place. Thanks!

When you use a public restroom with an automatic toilet, do you wait for the toilet to flush before you leave the stall, or do you just leave your business hanging around and assume that it will eventually get around to flushing?

If it doesn't flush automatically, as many of them tend not to do even when they're supposed to, will you flush it yourself?

When you take a bath, are you in and out in the length of time it takes you to wash, or do you make an event of it, with reading material and so on?

I can't not make an event of a bath. It seems like a waste of all that lovely hot water.

My 'mister plumber' failed to unclog my sink. It smelled a lot like pure bleach though so I was reading the back label and noticed

"DANGER: (blah blah blah) Do not mix mister plumber with ammonia, toilet bowl cleaners, or other drain openers as hazardous gasses may be released and a violent eruption may occur..."

Lets say I am in the mood for a violent eruption... what do I have to mix with this stuff to make it happen?

Oh, and the ingredients were Water, Sodium Hypochlorite, Sodium Hydroxide, and Surfactants. Of these I know what Water is. What are the other three in lay mans terms?

TEAL DEER.

I'm in a pretty bad situation with my grades right now. I'm passing everything with decent scores, except my English class. My teacher has become really petty and counts me off on the most ridiculous shit, and I, in my infinite wisdom, got really pissed at her for it and stopped doing my work for a little while. It occurred to me suddenly that it's no skin off her nose whether I graduate or not, and it's my job to get the fuck out of here no matter what. I have two options at this point:

Option A: I have a paper due soon that's worth 35% of my nine weeks grade. My current grade is a 45%, and I need a C for this quarter to graduate. I can do it, I think, but God only knows how it's going to go over. The best I can do is write this paper to fit every parameter, and go above and beyond what she expects - But I've done this for her before and papers that other teachers would have given As to earned Ds in her class, because she will, without fail, find something ridiculous to count off for. I can write this paper and put all my hopes on it, but if I don't do well, that's it - I'm done. I won't be graduating.

Option B: For the low, low price of one hundred dollars (FJKHADJFHOIJAE), I could take a Credit Recovery program. This is a computer based program that even a monkey could complete in a few days, and would assure that I would graduate so long as I did well in the other classes (which is a piece of cake). This feels cheap to me, but the fallout from not graduating would be akin to several hundred Hiroshima bombs, no fucking shit.

What would you do in this situation? I realize it is, on the whole, my own fault I am failing, so I would prefer if you kept those sorts of comments to yourself plz.
