Why do some people who are ostensibly trying to avoid conflict, proceed to say things in an "attempt to understand" (not expecting any answer short of complete reversal) or to repeatedly emphasize how they're not getting involved?  And for those pretending to attempt to resolve a conflict, think in terms of someone who is patronizing and repeats previous inflammatory statements, knowing how they caused the previous conflict.

I think it's just people who are too immature to engage in actual proper behavior for someone actually attempting avoid conflict and want to, instead, say something that will help them feel better about themselves in how totally "above it" they are.  I guess you could call it feigned maturity.

College question!

I'm currently a freshman and I'm going to apply as a transfer student at several schools in the fall. I'm trying to plan next semester's classes and I have the option to take 4/6 Honors level classes with one being absolutely miserable or 3/6 Honors classes with the third regular class being enjoyable. Do you think I'll look better if I have more Honors classes or do you think it doesn't really carry that much weight? My GPA is fine and I'm employed/have nice extracurriculars/and I'm involved with the school. Should I take the miserable class, just so I can say I took more Honors classes, or should I screw it and take what I want?

why is it that when I meet someone who knows how to play chess, they automatically try to teach me it because they are 'so good at it'?

I have tried to play chess. I do not enjoy it. it isn't because of my total lack of understanding the game. I just think it's boring.

do you hate chess? why or why not? do you find it as pompous as I do when someone insists on teaching you it, even if you're like a kid being forced to eat a worm throughout the game?


If you're a woman, do you shave your face? Do you believe most women shave their faces?

Bonus question: why the fuck am I awake this early?

My sister's boyfriend lives about three hours away and just texted me this morning telling me to let my parents know that he's on his way over this weekend as a surprise visit. My sister does not, of course, know. On a scale of 1 to AWWWWWWW, how adorable is this?

When was the last time some one did something sweet for you? What was it?

not exactly 'homework help'...

TQC, I'm in a bind...
In my writing class, this coming Tuesday is my turn to be workshopped/peer edited.  I'm supposed to post the pieces I want to have looked at on my class' website by tonight.  My problem is that we all have notebooks for this class in which we do all of our writing, and we turned them in on Thursday because there was a different assignment due that was contained within our notebooks.  All of the writing I want to use for my workshop on Tuesday is in this notebook, which is now at my professor's house.  Since I'm the only one being workshopped on Tuesday, I don't think she realized that this was going to happen, and neither did I.
So, what should I do/what would you do?  I can try to re-write the pieces I spent the last 3 weeks working on... or I can turn out 6 completely new pieces today that are not going to be half as good, or I can just take the hit and do nothing.  I've already tried to get in contact with my professor to let her know about my dilemma, but I've yet to hear back from her...

another question about names

Inspired by this post

Does anybody know what the deal is with kids who go by names that AREN'T EVEN THEIR NAME?
For instance: I have two younger sister-in-laws - their names (first and middle) are Heather Lynne and Jessica Marie. They go by "Skyler" and "Gabby".  Not just on the internet, but "in real life" amongst their friends.
WTF?! Why? Can somebody explain this to me?
Heather also has a male friend named Ethan who is "bisexual" (that's what he calls it, but I feel like there is a different name for it?), and when he is 'feeling like a female', he goes by the name Kira.
She's got countless *other* friends who misspell their real names on purpose (like a friend name Courtney who spells it 'Courtneh').
Where does this come from?  What is the purpose?

A: In case it makes a difference... Heather is 18 and Jessica is 12.

At the end of April, my friend will be having surgery. She is slightly freaked out about it. I want to get her something either for before or after her surgery as a little pick-me-up. I know that as her friend, I know more about her than you do, but what kinds of things would you want if you were having surgery and were a little nervous about it?

Time Travel!

Here's a question I posed to my ex-girlfriend many years ago...

So you make a machine that allows you to travel through time. Except, every time you travel, you gain 100 pounds. So for example, lets say you travel to the future, and then you come back to the present. That's 200 pounds right there gained (and yes, people can tell). Would you do it? Keep in mind you can always work off the weight (eventually, though 200 pounds is a lot of weight to work off sometimes).

Edit: Assuming this weight gain will not change your future (if you happen to glimpse your future).

Dear Dr TQC,
Am I going to die? My head hurts from sinus pressure. I sniffed my nose and it felt like my face/head was going to explode.

Would you miss me if I died?

What do you take to get rid of a sinus headache/pressure? (I am going to the store later for some tylenol sinus meds, I just wanted to know what specific brands everyone uses)


My boyfriend's granddad just died. He's really upset about this (I'm meeting him for lunch in a little bit, and will then just spend the rest of the day with him until he gets ready to drive down for the funeral). I've talked to him a bit already and did the whole hugs-and-comfort thing, but I'm sort of at a loss for what to do and say for him right now, because I've never known someone very well who died, and can't really relate.

What should I say, TQC? Or, better, what shouldn't I say?

Drunken happiness?

Stemmed from this comment from an agent's mouth just now:

"The first time I got drunk, I got drunk off of Bud Light. I drank a whole case myself and was throwing up for HOURS! Hey.. I was 16!"

ME? Hornsby Apple Beer, a bottle of Strawberry Hill and half the bottle of Boones Strawberry Daq.

So I went out with a guy for my third date. We had a really nice time, talked a lot, kissed a lot, he brought me to a nice restaurant for dinner, comedy club, and then we watched a movie. we also messed around in the bedroom for the first time and laid around afterwards talking, cuddling, kissing. Yet he didn't kiss me good night we he walked me to my car. What is up with that? Please tell me if I'm reading too much into this.

edit: I'm of the opinion that you should do what you feel like doing. I don't like those stupid games where, you know, wait five dates before this, and six dates before that. Yet this is the first guy I've felt comfortable with sexually so fast. So I guess I'm just feeling like maybe those rules are there for a reason. Is this ridiculous?

 What do you think of this??

When people see some things as beautiful,
other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.

Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.

Therefore the Master
acts without doing anything
and teaches without saying anything.
Things arise and she lets them come;
things disappear and she lets them go.
She has but doesn't possess,
acts but doesn't expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever.

One of the hottie bar tenders at my work (that I love to flirt with...he's still not as cute as the hottie server ^_^) told my hostess friend that he's in a relationship with a girl, and they've decided to be chaste with each other.  He's also a recovering alcoholic (ironic).

When he was saying goodbye to me I told him I was disappointed that he wasn't single, and he told me they we're just casually dating, and hadn't had the relationship talk yet, and that he'd probably have to hold off on it in case someone else came along.

Is this guy just trouble?

OK, TQC, song recommendation question. I have tons of "breakup songs", "men suck" songs, "girl power" songs, "omg i'm so in luuuuuuurve with yoooooou" songs, "why must you be so far away" songs, etc., etc. But now I need some songs for that kind of mood you get into when you're like, "You know what? I don't give a shit what you think of me, I am who I am and if you don't like it you can bite my ass." Or songs that send the message "I'M AWESOME." Whatever. lol.

Any song recommendations for that kind of mood?

Asshole day

Mom and I went out today and it seems like every single person on the road was acting like they'd left their brains at home. We were tailgated by this jackass in a silver jeep halfway towards the grocery store, then while we were on our way to Robeks for lunch (They sell some of the yummiest smoothies EVER that are basically meals in themselves, not to mention awesome service), we were cut off, and the twit behind the wheel honked at US when it was HER fault. We also got beeped at by a guy in a Hummer in line at the gas station. Mom and I both gave him the finger. I know people are assholes on a regular basis, but they seemed to be everywhere Mom and I went today.

1. Is this just me, or was it asshole day today?

2.  Should we declare an official asshole day on, say, the first day of spring, maybe?

I have a little 'issue'

My flat (apartment) has needed a lot of repairs done for quite some time (washing machine is not working at all, shower isn't working either, the lock on the door and more recently, the smoke alarm) . A few months at least. The shower and the lock on the door were reported to him back in November. The lock on the door is very loose and is right now, held in place with strong tape. Which isn't ideal when my neighbours are drug dealers.

Every time I ask my landlord about it all he says he's 'dealing with it' but it doesn't seem like he is.

I also owe him some rent money, its not that much, maybe around £100. (the rest of the money is paid for me as I can't work)   I don't see why I should give him this while my house is in need of so many repairs. Can I legally do this? Tell him he'll get the money when the repairs are fixed? I've moved so often that I don't want to piss him off and end up having to move again. It is really beginning to piss me off now.

Hey TQC! So my birthday was a little more than two weeks ago, but most people forgot, so I'm still getting late cards. I got one from my aunt who I have nothing to do with, that had a check in it for fifty dollars. Pretty sweet, huh? Ya, it would be, except she took up 2 1/2 faces of the card with a missive about how broke she is, having just dropped more than 16 grand on her pets and house, and how she needs more money coming in each month.

So I have no intentions of cashing/depositing this check. I'd rather burn it and piss on the ashes, but my mom says I should just send it back. That would work too. What do you think, TQC? How should I return this guilt-laden gift?

"I was going to save this for you. Mom"

What does this mean, TQC? She was going to save a picture... that I took... for me?

GR Press Box
ETA: This picture. It's one of those boxes that sells papers and they put a grammar error on their actual box.

If SNL got Rick Astley as a surprise music guest and the cast dressed up like people in the video and rick rolled all of America (the ones who were watching anyway) in the middle of a music performance by someone, who would be the best music performer to interrupt with a rick roll?

For serious

What is your preferred method of *safely* losing weight (i.e. no drugs)?

If you've lost a lot of weight and kept it off, how did you do it?

Other than the obvious of eating right, and only eating the amount of calories burned, what other tips/tricks do you have for staying healthy?

another question for Dr. TQC

Dear Dr. TQC,
Why does my elbow hurt?  It hurts right smack dab in the middle, and the pain feels like it is in the bone/muscle - it is definitely not on the skin/surface (not a cut or bruise or anything like that).  It hurts the most when I stretch it out really fast (for instance, while I was playing euchre today it hurt every time I laid a card down), but most of the time it is just a general ache.  It is a sharp pain, almost like someone is stabbing a needle right into my elbow.
What is wrong with me?

ETA: It has been doing this on and off for about a week.  Today is definitely the worst it has ever been, though.
