Where was the last postcard you received sent from?

I'm going to France next week and want to send postcards to a couple friends scattered across the US and Canada. Will I need to buy postage? Anyone know exactly what kind of postage I'd have to buy for the postcard... or how? (I don't exactly live there so it might be a bit different)

Hello TQC,

It's just after 1am and I need to sleep. My crush is coming over to cook me dinner tomorrow night and I need to get my beauty sleep but can't because the excitement is keeping me awake.

Could you please say/do something to put me to sleep?

Thankyou! :)

This question's for the girls in the group! YAYYYYY US.

How do you feel about your SO watching porn? How would you feel if you found out he had a "Fleshlight" or some other comparable masturbation aid?

My answer: Frankly, I wouldn't give a shit. Really, if I had a problem with my SO having porn or sex toys, I would officially be the world's biggest hypocrite. I ask this question because I know a girl who will not "allow" her boyfriend to watch porn at all, even if he's just hanging out with the guys and laughing at it (which he's likely to do) and I just cannot imagine not allowing a grown adult to do something. I can't wrap my head around it.

My husband is sick with a head cold, and is therefore snoring terribly.  He claims nothing will "unstuff" him-not nasal spray, not sudafed, not sudafed PE, not an allergy pill, and he won't wear one of those strips.

How should I kill him so I can get some sleep?

im a high school senior and my bf is a college freshman. he knows no one in my school or really any of my friends from school. so for prom, i am taking a close guy friend that goes to my school because im pretty sure ill have a better time. but my bf is really upset about it.

TQC what would you do?
take the close friend and have a good time?
of take the bf and risk a possibly awkward situation?

if you were on the other side of the situation, would you be upset if your SO was taking someone else to prom (or any other "special" event) under the same circumstances?

No flames please, but do you usually find women who are academically driven and who graduate from top tier colleges to be more focused on intellectual activities and less focused on their image? Do they tend to be less inclined to pursue plastic surgery or be into looks/vain stuff?

Sure, there are certainly outliers, but in general, do you find this to be true?

I once read a post somewhere saying that MIT girls seem like they don't give a shit about their looks when that person visited that college.

Congratulations, TQC! You had a long lost and extremely wealthy uncle who just kicked the bucket and left you a ton of things. He was in the process of building his own town- however, since he died, all of his plans fell through. Now the city is yours!

2. Where is it?
3. Do you plan on making it a big city, suburban, or rural?
4. What do you put in your city? Utilities are included.

I put in a transfer at work, and if it goes through I'll have to move across the country.

Everyone I've told about my plans has thought it's a good idea, save one. A girl that I like, but previous to my telling her of my plans had shown little to no interest in being anything other then friends.

Moving will be a great opportunity for me, but also a huge risk. The main reason I put in for the transfer was because I felt  I had nothing keeping me here. With her, it might be worth sticking around.

So, TQC, in the immortal words of The Clash:

Should I stay or Should I go?

Da fitness

Okay, so, I'm at a hotel and their little gym doesn't have an elliptical machine, which is what I usually work out on. They do have a treadmill, and I did a little more than 1/2 hour on that yesterday, and now I'm REALLY SORE. It's been a long time since I've been this sore, and I'm confused, because I used to jog, and I currently do other stuff besides the elliptical (like hike and bike ride).

Do treadmills use some special evil power over my calf muscle that isn't exerted by any other activity or something?

Should I go back this morning and do the treadmill again? Or should I just sit in the sauna? I really don't want to be sore all day, I'm gonna be busy.

We  have all been in situations that made us want to ask for TQC's opinion but we refrained from asking because we knew that everyone would read too much into it and you would get flamed.

If your issue has already been resolved and you no longer worry about getting flamed, what was your question?

Did you get the opinion of friends, family, or another community or did you fix the situation without asking for opinions?

If your issue is unresolved, would you like to post your question anyway?

Let's pretend that the season premiere of one of your favorite TV shows is tonight. Half an hour before it begins, you find out that one of your very good friends is upset/lonely/depressed/whatever and REALLY needs someone to talk to, and that person is you.

Please answer BOTH scenarios, thanks!

Kidney Stones

So, I was just informed yesterday that I have my first ever kidney stone (2 to 3 mm). Yet another lovely side effect of the Prednisone that I have to take for my Sarchoidosis. Anyway, I was wondering how many TQCers have also had kidney stones? If you have, how long did it take to pass? Did you have to take any medication for it? I'm trying to avoid getting any medication if at all possible (I was given an RX, but have not yet filled it). I'm hoping to be able to pass it without having to spend more money. Any tips on how to get things moving along quicker? I'm drinking water like crazy, so hopefully that will help.

I always find really cute boy t-shirts at Target and buy them in size small. Usually I don't have an issue with them fitting, I like these kinds of t-shirts to fit a bit lose anyway. But today I bought two neat ones and they're a bit bigger/looser than normal. Would it be safe to wash them and dry them on medium heat? Would that shrink them a bit? Or shrink them too much? I don't know much about how cotton + heat works, so any insight would be great!

It's only "How are you?" without a tint of real curiosity. Honestly, I don't care to talk about myself, but usually it's a sign that they care if they want to talk about me.

Cell phones

I've been with Verizon for years and I've had the same old phone all this time. I've heard of others upgrading their phones after they've had a contract for a few years, either at a discount or for free.

I've been dating my boyfriend for a year now. In that year, he's gotten really drunk in my presence about four or five times. Each of these times, I've found out that he drunk texts and/or calls his ex-girlfriend just to say hey.

In my opinion, getting drunk enables people to do what they don't have the balls to do when they're sober and also "drunken words/actions are sober thoughts."

Does this mean he's still into her??

Note: I've once accidentally stumbled upon his facebook message exchanges with her, and their conversations seem completely harmless. In one message, he wrote to her about how me spending the summer with him kept him sane and grounded...

Also, what is your favorite piece of art (interpret the phrase however the hell you want to) that somehow pertains to sex?

I'm classy.

I just found this plain-ish Japanese painting of bamboo by the trash tonight, and since I'm a thrifty college student I immediately thought, "free decoration!!" I've been looking at kanji online though and am not finding anything that perfectly matches the symbols on the painting. There's just two of them, so it's either some short generic message or perhaps it says "eat babies" which is why it was thrown out to begin with. :P

And if not, I welcome your creative interpretations. I'll stick with "eat babies" since it's hanging in my kitchen. That seems fitting.

1. When (if you enjoy them) eating donuts, do you ever get the wrong filling?
Some candy companies put a different design on to to indicate the type of filling (creams, fruits, nuts etc) shouldn't donuts but the same, some indicator of what's inside?
2. Of course, Billy Joel's We Didn't Start the Fire is awsome, but did you ever think about how creepy the video is?

1. Yeah, I like custard filled but the cream ones look the same and unlike the pretty pictures the donut places show you, there usually isn't a pretty spot of the filling peaking out. They should do something so people can tell without having to pick it up and look at it.
2. I love the video but watching it one day, I realized it really is a bit creepy. This man, all in black (save for the yellow on his socks), is in a family's kitchen watching them and singing about them. He'll be inches from their face, playing with their baby and they have no clue he's there. That or they've gotten used to the idea that they've got one very musically inclined ghost.

1. What was your favorite television show as a child (any age under 18)?

2. Did you parents limit the amount or kind of tv you could watch? Were certain shows off limits?

I couldn't watch the Simpsons until well into my teen years when my mom realized she thought it was funny, too.

3. Do you remember the first time you stumbled upon porn? What form was it in (magazine, internet, etc.)?
bitch please


I saw Presidents of the United States of America at the Roxy in L.A. last week and they brought out Wayne Kramer from the MC5 to play "Kick Out the Jams" and then closed the encore/set with a cover of Boston's "More Than a Feeling" featuring Weird Al on accordion. It was fucking sweet.

What's the coolest thing you've ever seen in concert?

What inspired your last surge of music love?

I am OBSESSED with Ludo right now. They opened for Presidents and I'd only barely heard of them before, but I turned to my friend halfway through the set and screamed, "This is my new favorite band!" I haven't stopped listening since.
