You are transported into the depths of Hell, apparently Satan has gotten bored and decided to fuck around with the living, and find yourself in front of the throne or whatever of the fallen angel himself. On either side of him you see two people, who seem more or less average, and whom you have never seen before this day--likely to never see again.

He tells you to pick one of these people to live, and the other to spend eternity in everlasting torment.

The person on the left is an average-looking woman, aged 23, with a child and an ex-husband who doesn't pay child support. She's a secretary for the CEO of a large corporation, though recently she's been considering quitting because she feels perpetually degraded by the sexual comments made by her boss. Her favorite color is blue, and her favorite song, right now, is "Love Song" by Sara Bareilles.

The other is a slightly overweight, but not unpleasant-looking man, around 34, who is married but has no children. He's currently without a job because he recently was laid off (poor economy and all). His unemployment is almost running out. He has two jack russell terriers named Mindy and Billy that he loves very much, though. His favorite color is red, though he says it's green. His favorite song is David Bowie's "China Girl".

Which of these people do you save?

Or do you use Charizard to save them all and kill Satan?

Follow up question:

This is a follow up question to this post, cause I still haven't decided what to do.

Basically, my estranged aunt sent me a birthday card with a check for fifty dollars in it. The card was covered in a letter detailing all of her financial hardships, well into the ten thousands. I don't know what I am going to do, still. I want to send her a letter shaming her, really, and returning the check, that way, if she's just doing it to look like a martyr, she still has to deal with my scornful reply. Ugh, please help me decide wtf to do, TQC

When I lived in Southern California, we'd get this little beetles that were attracted to light, like they tended to come out in the evening and nighttime. They were pretty small-maybe half an inch long (at least where I lived)and a brownish red color. They could fly too. I had always called them June bugs but because I am bored I just looked up June Bug on wikipedia and it gave me some other beetle that is a little bigger, makes a buzzing noise-like a bee, and is green-it didn't mention that they flew either. So, anybody know what sorta bug I'm thinking of?

no hard feelings if you don't though!

Alright alright alright guys.

I get it, I'm actually socially retarded. THANKS!
But, IN MY DEFENCE. I've heard that 'losing the v-card' makes people act strange.
I also lost my brother a month before I was with this guy, and was in the grieving stage --still am.
I also have never been with anyone even close that way ( no fooling around )and never dated. So this was someone I felt strongly about or something.
BUT, I can read from your ever so caring (sarcasm much?) responses, that it was all wrong, and I am absolutely horrible at reading situations and people. So, thank you all, I'm moving on. I realize the errors. But, thanks.

Edit 2:: I also wrote all of this in about five minutes, didn't take grammar, spelling, or formatting into account whatsoever when writing this. It resembles a huge mess of text, that actually probably will hurt your eyes. But I was lazy, just wanted to type it out quick, that's all. I didn't think I'd have to write extra "proper" for the internet. Just typed everything I could think of, quickly at that. My apologies. I won't go back an edit it now, because it's long done.

One time mine (and all my roommates) cat got preg and we didnt know it. Well that damn cat got into Zac-s room and his girlfriend is alergic to cats so he got all pissed off and kicked the cat. Anyways it aborted all over our other roommates (Jenn) bed (where it typicaly slept)

Now this was about 2 years ago.

So I ask you. Did this sad and tragic story make you lol a little bit inside? Like you know its not funny but you pictured a girl comming home and finding aborted cat fetuses on her bed.

Also we were not sure what to do with them so we put them in an old DVD player and the put that under the new sod in the front yard.

Whats the best way to get rid of dead cats and/or cat fetus?

Even if you don't consider yourself to be superstitious, do you have any habits or things that you do that are?  Why do you do them?

For example, when I put money in my wallet, I always put bills facing the same direction with "In God We Trust" facing out, because my aunt told me once that it makes your money grow faster.  I do it now not because I really think it will get my rich, but because it makes me think of my aunt.

lately my hair has felt very tangley and...waxy? could this be a result of too much deep conditioning? it feels dirty even right after washing. i've been using a deep conditioner every time i wash and a defrizz serum after.

maybe this is a stupid question, but i'm so used to having damaged hair that the idea of "too much conditioning" is foreign to me.

Relationship f-ups

So, when your boyfriend royally screws up - say, does something that is one of your top 'no no's (e.g. cheat, lie, manipulate - whatever it is for you), what do you want him to do (other than say 'i'm sorry' and promise to not do it again) to make things better? 

If it's your girlfriend that royally screws up, what do you want them to do? 

When responding please let me know what gender you are. I'm just curious to see if there are differences in needs when it comes to this.  

EDIT: Ok, say it's not something serious enough to break up over. S/he loves you, didn't realise how badly it'd hurt, and are seriously apologetic. It's the first time they've ever done it, so you have reason to believe them.  Do you just forgive and forget? Or, do they need to do something more? If so, in your ideal scenario, what do they need to do to make things right - typical responses might be 'buy flowers' 'stand at my window with a boombox', lol.

My cat is a couch potato

It has been a slow, lazy morning with lots of time to think of stupid questions so before I go out and decide to be productive, I was wondering...

Do your pets watch TV?
My cat typically totally ignores it, although he seems to be intrigued by car chases and action-adventure type things on the screen. He also reacts when an actor is being very emotional (i.e. crying or yelling) or when another cat or a dog is making a lot of noise on the program. The only quieter things that catch his interest are nature programs a la Meercat Manor and the like. However, I think he might be a bit nearsighted because when he does become enraptured, it is when he is sitting about a foot and a half from the screen.

So, I'm wondering what my spiritual beliefs would be classified as.

I don't believe that there is just one god or that god exists as defined in the Bible/Quran/Hebrew Bible/etc. I don't believe that any being can be completely omnipotent, everything has a weakness.

I do believe that there are higher beings that may, on occasion, interfere in our world/the workings of the universe. These beings could be previous evolutions of our own species or highly evolved aliens from another planet, I don't know or particularly care, I just believe there is something. I believe in an afterlife and that all concious (not trees/plants/bacteria) have a soul/life force that continues after their body is dead. Deep down I believe in reincarnation, though I may scoff at the idea, but I don't think you die and are immediately reincarnated. I believe that there is a place where souls wait until it's time for them to be born again.

So TQC, what am I?

My mom and I had an argument recently. She insisted that all college seniors, who are "motivated" and want to be "successful", look forward to and are happy to write their thesis. She insinuated that if you don't have these qualities, of looking forward to a thesis and being happy happy, joy joy about it you are an unmotivated, irresponsible wretch with no ambition, who is completely hopeless. Being as I think this is a completely irrational case, I took the opposite position. So now I turn to you, TQC!

1. If you are/were a senior in college, did you, in fact, look forward to doing your thesis, and were you happy while doing it?

2. If you could graduate college with the same qualification, but without the necessity of writing a thesis, would you take that opportunity?

Superman questions

Superman is invulnerable to physical injury and superstrong, yes?

1. Clark Kent loves to eat candy and dislikes brushing. Would he get a cavity, or is his Kryptonian saliva superstrong as well and capable of destroying errant bacteria in his mouth?

2. Superman gets a cavity, let's say. What can he do about it? Are his teeth superinvincible too, or can a dentist drill penetrate them?

3. Superman has superstrong muscles and his body is impervious to injury, because his skin can't be broken and the muscle mass can shrug off blunt attacks like it was nothing. But there is no muscle behind the scrotum. Would he be vulnerable to a kick to the nuts? Or are his testicles superdense?

4. Clark Kent finds that he's allergic to pollen. He has to sneeze. What would happen if he was in the office? Remember he's got superbreath

5. Superman isn't eating enough fiber, and he's a little superconstipated. He's sitting on the toilet, and pushing his superintestinal muscles to force out a superpoopie. For someone with the strength to lift a locomotive, would his dookie fly out of his butt with enormous pressure? What would happen to the toilet? The floor beneath it?

Passport question

I have a major problem, and the official web site about passports provided no answers to the following question:

Can you still renew your passport by filling out a form and turning in your old passport after it has expired? In my particular case it would only be a couple of weeks after the expiration. The problem is that other than my birth certificate, I have no other forms of official ID (I don't have my social security card, and I do not have a driver's license).

Alternately, if I apply for a passport in one state (BEFORE it expires), can I have it mailed to an address in a different state? To make a long story short, I'm going on a trip where I'll need my passport in a couple of weeks, and then it will expire the week after, when I'll be in the middle of moving to another state.

I have soba noodles (the wide kind) and want to use them for dinner. I have cauliflower, broccoli, peanut butter, rice vinegar, canola (and no other kind of) oil, soy sauce, fresh ginger, sunflower seeds (I'm not sure if they're salted or not)...

What can I make with these? I can figure it out in terms of the vegetables and all, but I'm not sure if I can make the peanut butter work in a sauce of some sort.

Any ideas?

Should Unicode designate an official dick-in-a-box character?  They have all other kinds of random "graphical symbols" (in the sense of a smiley face).

Who will design the archetype of the symbol?

What other symbols should Unicode add?

You have a strange dream where reginald crept in through your window as you slept, and stole $20 from your wallet. You woke up and thought it was all a silly dream, but upon inspection of your wallet, you seem to be $20 short. What do you suppose happened and what will you do about it?

So my dad accidently deleted the recycle bin on his PC. I can't seem how to find it to get it back for him.
I am totally stumped on this and I am sure I am over looking something. I have tried looking on line for some help but can't seem to find anything.

Can you help me?

How do I retrieve a delete recycle bin or is it just gone for ever?

My husband has been sick as hell for the last 2.5 weeks, and I have managed to remain healthy.  However, I am developing a killer headache and am noticing a bit of a hot, scratchy throat.  I'm getting sick!

How do you handle being sick?  Do you just take a bunch of medicine and push through it, or do you curl into a ball and sleep until you feel better?

I'm not looking for an answer, more of a how-to on how to figure these out, please. I can't figure this out:

"Mark Barrett purchased 210 shares of the Martin & Newsome Aggressive Growth mutual fund for $22 a share. The fund charges a 5 percent commission when shares are purchased. During the next 12 months a $50 management fee was deducted from his account. He also received income dividends and capital gain distributions that totaled $0..80. At the end of 12 months, Mark sold his shares for $26.

How much money (including commissions) did Mark Barrett invest in the Martin & Newsome Aggressive Growth fund? "
I came up with 4,389, but my quiz marked me as incorrect.

"Mark Barrett purchased 210 shares of the Martin & Newsome Aggressive Growth mutual fund for $22 a share. The fund charges a 5 percent commission when shares are purchased. During the next 12 months a $50 management fee was deducted from his account. He also received income dividends and capital gain distributions that totaled $0..80. At the end of 12 months, Mark sold his shares for $26.

Assuming that he sold his shares in this fund at the end of 12 months, what was Mark Barrett's total return or profit from this investment? "
I just guessed on this one.

Can someone please guide me on how to figure these out?

Have you ever had a woman put her fingers inside of you and massage your uterus and ovaries from the inside out while looking you straight in the eyes? What the hell? She also looked at my cervix :( Collapse )

Would you rather have hair that smells like mackerels or constantly be having a light period, both FOREVER?

Also, is there a thing like a push-up brassiere, but for your buttocks? I can invent it?

Poll #1166540 A/S/LotR?

Who'd you rather hook up with?

Gandalf (he has a little of that Sean Connery mojo)
All 4 hobbits at once

Edit: It's Galadriel, not Gwendriel. My error. There's another elf girl named Gwendriel and I got my pointy ears crossed

Edit2: You can add Treebeard if you want. I should have remembered him when I made the poll. All you dendriphiliacs can rejoice

Guys, I was Army... I wore the uniform. So why is it when I see people in uniform now, I want to say something to them, but I get all shy and can't approach them? (IDK if it's shyness, I don't know what it is... maybe shame :O) I mean some makes sense, if it's some one high ranking that I would NEVER SPOKEN TO while I was in, but even the ones my rank I get all weird with! Why is this? What can I do to stop being weird and not able to approach strangers in uniform? D:
