what do your hands say about you at this moment?

mine say that I got attacked by the popcorn grate when I was washing it (that's gonna scar..) and that I've been playing octave scales on the cello judging by the messed up callous on the edge of my thumb. I just cliped my nails and some might accidentally think I'm engaged but I just wear a ring on that finger because I like it.

a reply of a question asked about a month ago

You're going down on your partner, and he/she farts--and it's a stinker. What do you do? Keep in mind he/she will probably be extremely embarrassed. (Or maybe not--who knows?)

I would probably move away from his lower region and search out other erogenous zones--neck, nipples, etc. If it was really bad I'd probably suggest we move to another area of the room, or another room if necessary. I wouldn't want to embarrass him.

Then again, if we're really close, maybe we'll just laugh about it.

1. Despite having to work early today, I stayed up all night playing video games, downloading Ben Folds and Richard Cheese songs, and making summer travel plans. I have to work 10AM-3PM with only one or two other people (if there are two others, one is a trainee). Besides copious amounts of caffeine, how can I keep myself alert for a lunch rush at a fast food restaurant?

2. My hair is too long. I want to buzz it all off today after work (not all off, but down to about 1/2"), but pretty much everyone I know wants me to keep it as is (it's like a 5" mop on my head). Should I just say "screw you guys, it's gone" and buzz it off or try my hand at hacking it down to something decent? (Despite having a friend who owns a salon right next door to my workplace in the strip mall where we're located, I can't afford a proper haircut. Woe.) I'm pretty good at cutting others' hair, but I've never tried my own. heh

I live about 15 minutes from Taylor University. I didn't know either of the girls involved (or anyone else in the accident for that matter), but I have a lot of friends at Taylor. It made me ashamed of and furious at the county for not being more thorough in their victim identification and actually had me considering running for county coroner.

I hate Public Transportation

Dear TQC- What is the appropriate thing to do about snorers on public transportation?

I ride a train to work at about 6am, and just about everyone is sleeping- but occasionally I get stuck on a car with individuals whose snoring could wake the dead. Do you wake them up and say "dude, you're snoring and annoying the hell out of everyone", nudge them and hope they figure it out on their own, or do nothing?

Also, when everyone else is sleeping at 6am, and people get on the train and start gabbing on their cell phones or having extremely loud convos, should you do anything then?

If stephie hadn't deleted this post:
I hooked up with this cute boy last night from one of my classes. It turns out he's had a crush on me for a while, and I love that 'cause hot boys never crush on me. I got laid... thank God. Last time I had sex was MAY. I shudder when I say that.

So, anyway - here's what I'm wondering. He made it seem like he was in the same boat as me regarding hooking up with people. He said he doesn't hook up a lot. But I have to admit, I am skeptical. HE WAS SO GOOD. And he knew how to hold me and move and stuff and it was just mmm mm good.

Am I being a hypocrite? I mean, I'm good at sex, but it doesn't mean that I fuck guys all the time. Why am I making a different standard for him? In my mind I'm thinking, ohhh he's good at this and he knows what he's doing... he must sleep around. Should I lighten up? Does anyone else do this?

I think I'm just being a pessimist, but another part of me really doesn't trust him for whatever reason. I've dated some really crummy guys in the past and I'm sure that doesn't help.

would you have said it was weird?

Subletting an apartment

I am planning on subletting my apartment this summer from June through August. I live in family student housing through UC Berkeley, but I can't afford to live here during the summer because rent is insane and I don't have childcare. I will be living with my parents. I have never lived in an apartment before and don't know much about subletting. I listed my apartment through the school's apartment search webpage and I've had a couple of responses.

Any advice on subletting an apartment? Should I take all the rent upfront since it's only a few months? Should I write out a detailed inventory of what is in my apartment (I am leaving all furnishings here)? Any other random advice or things to look out for?

Thanks!

This is the seriousest I will ever be. My amazing fluffy black cat, Jose, has gone missing. I thought he was awfully quiet last night, but when I sent out an e-mail to the other apartments in my building that I thought he might be missing, someone wrote back saying he was last seen outside the house at 1:30 this morning. Additionally, the under-cat, Maya, has been acting totally insane and climbing all over the best furniture and splaying out everywhere in the house...she knows that Jose is really gone, not just stuck in the basement as usual.

Jose has never been outside before. He has NO IDEA how cars and rain work (it is raining!!). I have looked under every car and front porch on our block and wandered around calling his name. However, since today is my first day on my new medication (you all heard about this yesterday), I am COMPLETELY zoned-out. I have been running into things and falling down all morning. I am worried sick but I can barely leave the house because I am so disoriented. I have already written notes to almost all the houses on our block with my phone number and a description of my cat. I've put out a note on Facebook to people I know who live near me.



WHAT ELSE DO I DO?


I am going to die if Jose disappears.

Hypothetical, fake fecal fun

You're invited to a party hosted by that cute guy/girl at your work/school. It's pretty crowded and it's alright. Someone presents to you a plate of chocolate cupcakes and they look really, really yummy (if you don't like chocolate, the server gives you an expectant look and you take one out of guilt). You taste it and it's kinda crappy, with sugar-free carob, and it's messy. Upon completion of said cupcake, you find your hand is covered in brown goo. Not compelled to lick it off cause it doesn't taste good, you look for something to wipe your hand with. A search of the kitchen reveals no paper towels or napkins, and you see that the bathroom is available, and go in, looking for toilet paper to wipe your hand. It's all gone. Frustrated you walk out, hoisting your stained hand uncomfortably when the cute host/ess sees you exiting the bathroom, sees your brown, soiled hand, cringes and says there's extra toilet paper under the sink, and as you're trying to defend your soiled mit, they say "GROSS. Keep it to yourself please and don't touch anything!!"

What do you do or say?

Edit: the kitchen sink is occupied and someone threw up over the bathroom faucet, so you can't really wash it off

I was reading Dear Abby an a woman wrote in because she had a 20 yr old nephew helps himself to their milk. They have a 7 yr old kid who drink a lot and since the cost of milk is so high they're trying to make a gallon last a week. She asked the nephew to please ask before he helps himself to their milk, (she didn't say if she had explained WHY) but he just took to sneaking the milk whenever they weren't around-the woman is close friends with the mother and she said one day they had left the room at which time he drank OVER HALF A GALLON!! of their milk. When they found out she called his cell phone to scold him. The mother of the boy/woman's friend then stopped responding to her calls and e-mails. (the question to Abby was could her scolding him have anything to do with it)

Abby's response was that perhaps if she'd explained to the nephew WHY they wanted him to ask, he'd listen and that yeah, some people tend to get annoyed when you scold their child.

SO!
1. Is it rude to consume food/drink from a family members house without asking?
2. What if they specifically ask that you not just take stuff?
3. Was she right to confront the 20 year old?
4. Was the mother right to be angry?
5. Who the hell drinks over half a gallon of milk-much less somebody else's milk?

My views-I don't think it's rude as long as they don't mind. When I'm at my friend's house I know it's OK if I got get something to eat or drink and I don't care if my friends do that. However, if somebody asks me not to obviously I won't and no, they don't need to explain why. It's their food, they bought it just because they're friends or family does not mean I'm automatically entitled to consume it. Yeah I think the woman completely had a right to scold him-he's 20 fucking years old he should have better manners and better judgement than that. The mom getting pissy about it shows where her son gets his maturely from, she should tell her son to grow up and stop being such a selfish inconsiderate little shit. Even when I do consume stuff at my friend's I am careful to not take too much.

There is a boy and a girl.

The girl does not know anything about sex, does not know that sex makes babies, etc. She has been very sheltered and her parents have not told her anything about it, and they are very religious.

The boy lives in a similar society, but he learned about sex by reading books.

The boy and the girl have sex. She does not know that sex makes babies, and while she says no at first to his physical advances, she then consents and participates and even enjoys it.

Since I got so many helpful answers last time I asked a cat related question, I'll try again. I have a cat door through my front door that goes to a hall with the kitty litter in it. My cat has been using this cat door with no problem for the last few years until recently. The front door is kind of fucked up as in you don't have to turn the knob open the door, you can just push it open.

Starting a couple months ago my cat now insists on pushing the door open instead of walking through the cat door (unless I lock the door, of course). Sometimes it takes him a couple minutes of effort to get the door pushed open. I checked the cat door and it is operating as usual and it would take him much less time and effort to just go through that way. Sometimes he even sits outside waiting for me to open the door so he can come in.

Any ideas? What gives?

ANCIENT NAZIS

Why don't we consider ancient societies like the Spartans in the same terms that we think of Nazis?

They exercised extreme euthanasia and extreme aggression in warfare. They crushed anyone who wasn't a strong, obedient warrior.

Of course, the Nazis failed shortly after rising.

Does this mean we'll eventually see the Nazis like we've seen the Spartans?

We have tons of media documenting how they affected us, so I'm thinking probably not. If we had tons of videos of interviews, contemporary literature, etc from the era of the Spartans, we might see them like we see Nazis today.

EDIT: A copypasta error caused the post to be malformed initially. I'm looking for answers that go into why us, as humans, tend to view things like this psychologically BEYOND the obvious (i.e. beyond the fact that this was recent and we therefore have survivors) . In other words, consider this more from the perspective of being viewed 100 or 1,000 years from now.

Is there any type of career test/guide online I can take a look at to help?

I'm having trouble deciding what I want to study. I thought I had it set, I thought I wanted to study Veterinary Technology but now I'm not 100% sure. I'm 18, 19 next month and still not in college or anything. I blame it on certain problems I've encountered in the past months that have delayed me but mainly to my lack of motivation because for some reason I feel like I need to know what I want to do before starting. It doesn't help that I feel confused about everything else in my life right now.

I love animals. I love poems, art, photography but I can only write when angry, can't paint and my pictures are "there". I love cartoons, I love graphics.. but I'm not the best at it. I like physiology type stuff, knowing about the human mind but again, I'm not too sure. I feel like I want something exciting yet stable.

Also, is anyone going to Jazz Fest in NO this year? I am! This will be my 3rd year in a row going. I'm SO EXCITED.

EDIT: My bad, I had no idea that Slightly Stoopid was not even remotely well known. They're a band from California on Sublime's record label. yep. They (and this song I'm looking for) sound similar to G. Love and Special Sauce. Has anyone heard of them either?

For someone who regularly reads TQC and other LJ communities, do you think it would be more accurate to say that they rarely see lame arguments, or that they see a lot of lame arguments?

If the person above suggested that they always/almost always complain about lame arguments they see, and they don't actually complain about arguments much, would you think that they are at least exaggerating, if not being outright dishonest?

Money money money

This just came to mind and I was wondering what other people thought..so here I am. Trusty old TQC.

In the UK, if , for whatever reason, you are claiming benefits, there is a basic amount the law says you need to live on. And unless you have kids/are disabled this is the amount they give you. £46 ( $91 )a week whether you live at home with parents or are in your own house. (When you are over 25 it goes up slightly to around £59 ( $117)  per week )

Do you think its possible to live on said amount? I have been in that position myself and I couldn't do it without getting into debt and I don't smoke/drink or have kids. Just wondered what everyone else thought.

ETA I should have said that rent is usually paid for with Housing Benefit.

I found it impossible to manage. Okay so I didn't spend much on groceries for myself, but what with electricity, gas, phone, insurance it was difficult.

2. Have you ever lied to your doctor? If so, what was it about?

3. What do you do when someone close to you is close to someone you don't want to be close to?

Which is better: Stupid in real life, or on the Internets?

I've got to say Internet stupidity is better. Real-life stupidity is just annoying. And nothing causes DRAMA like Internet stupidity.

The only drawback is sometimes it's just a troll. Or a SOSHUL EXPERIMENT.

1. Where can I buy cheap food?
Excluding McDonalds; I only have four dollars and I'm a vegetarian, so I'm on a budget.
