1. When reading a review/rating (from anyone--online, friend, etc), all other factors the same (ceteris paribus), are you generally more likely to trust a review/rating from someone who likes the genre of the thing they are reviewing or someone who doesn't like the vast majority of things within that genre?

2. When it comes to rating sexual body parts (in an informal sense, like saying "she has stupendous boobage"), would you be more likely, generally speaking, to value an opinion from someone who is sexually attracted to that sex or someone who is not sexually attracted to that sex?

3. Same as #2, but with the added context that you (the person wanting the rating) are also sexually attracted to that sex?

Feeding 6 Humans

So I'm planning on cooking dinner for 5 friends Friday and I will probably have a budget of around $25. We are poor college students that eat too much for our own good... Do you have any good, cheap, and HEALTHY recipes/meals to suggest that will feed 6 people? Please! Nothing fancy - I will burn the house down...

Actually... What are some good recipes that are reasonably cheap? Health factor optional.

how do you calm down when you're feeling particularly murderous?




Okay so this is about my fucking stupid 16 year old brother who peed on my fucking dog right after she had a bath. My dog, who now has a permanent stain on her pretty white neck fur, until all the fur there falls out. My parents won't make him pay for her bath, and he just fucking instigates issues with me, bragging about how he doesn't have to pay for it, etc, to the point that I want him fucking out of my life. I'm seriously that pissed right now.

So I finally decided---well if he won't pay for it, I'll just destroy something of equal value to him. I think I've decided on dvds, maybe a cd or two. Suggestions?

Lets say you were eleven, and your two older brothers molested you(15, and 17) and you decided not to tell anyone. A few years have gone by and your brothers have never shown any remorse, they have never apologized. Your parents get upset about the fact that you and your brothers don't have a relationship but they blame you for it and yell at you about it all the time.

1) Would you tell your parents?
2) Would you forgive your brothers? If not, what would it take, if anything?
3) If yes, would you have a close relationship with them, or keep them at a distance?
4) If no, would you avoid family situations in which they were a part of altogether, or go and avoid them?
5) Would the thought of your brothers having children worry you?

Automatic drink dispenser.

Consider a hypothetical, advanced, voice operated and remote controlled drink mixer/creator/dispenser. The device itself is about the size of a blender, with the added size for containers containing the drinks and ingredients.

EDIT: You can put pre-mixed drinks in it, BUT it has the capability to mix and create any drink combination you want SPONTANEOUSLY. Each container can be ordinary (just heated or cooled) or specialized, like stirring continually while mixing in other ingredients.

For example, if you want fresh coffee, it will take out exactly the number of beans needed, grind them up and make the coffee. If you want vodka and OJ, it will mix fluids from the OJ and vodka containers on the spot.

The Deluxe Distiller Kit even has special containers can distill alcohol for you, microbrew style.

It can do anything a blender can do and more, including coffee making, grinding, ice crushing, ice shaving, shaking, stirring, syrup/water mixing, carbon dioxide mixing (for carbonation), etc ALL spontaneously or on a schedule/in advance.

You can tell it "orange soda, moderate carbonation, 16 ounces," "vodka and orange juice," "Arabica coffee ready at 8am every day, 8 ounces, 105.2 degrees, add extra caffeine and meth," or any other voice command and it will obey it.

How much would you pay for such a device? What if you could split the cost with house/apartment mates?

Honestly, I'd pay over $200 for this. Probably no more than $400.t

Help me decide to make a life-changing decision, TQC!

I'm seriously considering a career change, and this will fit the bill nicely...

2. If you drink coffee, when in the morning do you start your coffeemaker?

After I go to the bathroom (and wash my hands of course), but before I get dressed. By the time I'm ready, it's ready.

TQC, I was just promoted to manager at my job!  I've only been there a year!

For this position I have to wear dress pants, a button up or knit shirt, and a blazer.  So my question is, do you know of anywhere that sells a dark red button up shirt for women?  It seems as though I've looked everywhere, and no place has quite the awesome selection of shirts that men have.

Doctor doctor

You're diagnosed with a terrible medical problem, one that requires surgery to correct it. Through whatever medical insurance you have (or lack thereof), the procedure will cost you (personally) $100,000. You're mulling it over in the waiting room when you're approached by a stranger. "I can do that same procedure for only $15,000. I'm a surgeon, you see, who was forced out of my practice due to a few malpractice suits, all 3 of which had nothing to do with this particular kind of operation. I have no operation room, but I keep a sterile basement where I will conduct the procedure. I still have the tools of my trade, and effective black market anesthesia. What say you?" What would you do?

Go the safer route and sign up for the 100k operation, which will take place in a proper environment with licensed doctors

You aren't special

What and When was the first time you realized you weren't as special/gifted about something you originally thought you were at?



Mine was when I was standing in the line outside the Lunch Room in 6th Grade, and this guy told me how he beat Star Fox 64 (completed all missions, for the true final boss) and I didn't believe him, so I asked for details of the ending and he was right. I always felt special/unique that I could beat lots of games my little brothers/sisters couldn't, but it was that moment that I realized I wasn't as "special" as I originally thought. I was just ignorant of the world around me and did something thousands of others had already done, and living in my own world.

That time of year is coming quickly. Softball Season, Baseball games, grilling out, hiking, spending time outside. Which means... MOSQUITOES!!! Last year i bought the Don't bug me patch Which worked ok, sometimes I put on bug spray in addition to it, but not often. Mosquitoes LOVE ME. I DO have a adhesive allergy which left be with a nice rash if i used to patch for too long, also it took off my skin in the places where I applied the patch.

I've been doing research about periods because, as a girl, I think I should know what's going on. But I'm confused about something. Let's keep it simple. Let's say a girl ovulates between the 22nd-1st, has sex on the 1st of the month. She's supposed to start her period sometime between the 8th and 10th. How likely is it the girl will get pregnant?

Can a girl only get pregnant when she ovulates or are the chances just greater?

Is it truth or myth that a girl can't get pregnant while on her period?

Hello

Constant Emails

So some kind of debt-free website keeps emailing me saying they've been trying to contact me since last week (which is true, I've been receiving the emails), but I don't have any business with them. I haven't replied back because I'm worried this will just instigate a whole wave of additional emails and spam, so is there something I should be doing instead? So far I've just been spam-boxing them.

They don't even put a link of their website in their emails, they just say BusinessName DOT com, probably so it doesn't get filtered out quite as easily.

how annoying.

why does my gynecologist believe i can't make a valid decision about my uterus and my future oppurtunities to conceive because i'm 22?

if someone at 22 is capable of deciding she wants to have a child, can't someone at 22 be equally sure she never wants to have a child?

edit: i am not getting a surgery for the sole reason of being child-free. i want a surgery to correct a severe medical problem that will essentially leave me unable to have children.

So yesterday I was in biology and we were talking about vertebrates. We have a 6.5 foot boa constrictor named Charlotte that the professor was allowing us to hold and pet and what not. So I was holding the snake curled around my arm and everything's cool when all of a sudden the damn thing darts around my neck really quick fast and starts trying to suffocate me. She got wrapped around twice before anyone could do anything. It took 5 people to pull her off me. I almost passed out and I now have neck bruises that are pretty obvious.

There's a car accident, and the car gets flipped over and there's gas leakage. The driver has a broken arm and leg and cannot get out of the car, and the engine starts to catch on fire. All seems fucked. Suddenly, a young man runs over to the car, and yanks the driver out of the vehicle, and then, throws him behind a car to shield him from the explosion (the good samaritan dives behind another car). The force of the throw causes the driver to damage his head, inducing a coma. When he gets out of it, he sues his rescuer for damages and reckless behavior. Who's the guilty party in this incident?

The driver. What a douchebag! The guy saves his life and he's going to take him to court. He should be lucky he's alive!

Someone stole my fucking bicycle! It was chained to one of the supporting poles of our porch.

How do you suggest I better protect my shit, seeing as how everyone around here is apparently entitled to come into my yard and take it?

(Srs and non-srs answers welcome.)

Huh?

So I go to insert an image into a LJ entry, and under preview is this:

My mom is really frustrated because her e-mail program won't let her edit her own emails-so she has to write them perfectly the firs time, if she tries and go back to edit it it simply will not let her put the cursor there. Anybody know what the problem is?

She says it's only at home, she can edit them on the computer at work.

If you were to meet me or someone from TQC, what about yourself (looks or personality) do you think would be most surprising?

If you ever have met someone from the internet, what about you most surprised them?

Pick one person from TQC whom you have never seen a picture of, and tell me what you think they look like.

THIS FOLLOWING IS NOT A "CRY FOR HELP" OR WHATEVER.  JUST FYI.


If I were to kill myself, but my parents co-signed a student loan, would they still have to pay it?

What if it were a homicide?

What if it were a natural death?

What if it were a "questionable" death?

My sister and her boyfriend bought a house together last year, and then they broke up.

They are both on the mortgage and the title.

She wants to sell the house, he doesn't. But he doesn't have the money to buy her out or pay the mortgage himself.

What can she do? If she just stops paying, her credit is screwed. Can she force him to sell it? (Let's not go into how stupid it was for them to buy the house in the first place)

If you could choose between being reincarnated, going to heaven, or nothing after you die, which would you choose and why?

---

I'd choose reincarnation. I don't like the idea of being in a perfect place for all eternity. It sounds boring. I mean, I suppose I could stand it, and I know that heaven is supposed to be better than anything we could fathom, but I really love this life. I know there would be a possibility that I'd have a really horrible one, but I love people and I love places and I love living.

My second choice, though, would be heaven.

ETA: Okay, after having a few minutes to ponder all the horrible things that could happen, I changed my choice to heaven. But it would have to be interesting.

I'm forgetting some stuff

Last night I had a dream that I posted pictures of eight foods with (live) miniature frogs in them that resembled meatballs. I asked TQC if anyone could do better and make NINE foods (I had macaroni and cheese, spaghetti, etc.). taijiling (or whatever the hell her screen name is), in all her infinite wisdom, started a 250+ comment drama thread of ZOMG I ACCIDENTALLY ATES THEM :O

So, any TQC dreams?

My friend and I were getting into a wage discussion the other day, and as I am honestly clueless in this area, I was wondering if maybe thequestionclub would know the answer.

The discussion is this: I work at a movie theatre and make minimum wage, $5.85 an hour. My friend works as a waiter and makes below that - I believe it's about $2.50 or so. We were joking about who had the better job, and I said that I did, seeing as at least I made minimum wage. My friend became very argumentative and started saying that he made 'waiter minimum wage', and therefore did not make below minimum wage.

So there's my question. Is there such thing as a 'waiter minimum wage'? Am I still right by saying he's making below minimum wage?

And if there is a waiter minimum wage, what is it? Because I always assumed waiters' wages went on the thought that their tips made up for what they weren't paid.

I live in America, if it helps any.

*EDIT*: Because my wording is confusing. :P. I do understand that he gets paid less than minimum wage, and that his tips are supposed to make up for it. I just didn't know whether or not there is a standard waiter minimum wage, like all waiters must be paid $2.50 per hour before tips. That kind of thing, yano? ;)

I just finished reading, for the umpteenth time, Forever by Pete Hamill. (Fantastic book.) So, TQC, I bring you these questions:

1. One day the gods reveal themselves to you. They offer you immortality until the day, which they promise will be 3 or 4 hundred years in the future, that a prophecy reveals itself to you and you can cross over into the afterlife.

Here's the catch: you can never leave the city you're currently in.

Do you take it?

2. Now the gods say, "Pick a city. We'll drop you in there right now, but again, you can never leave." Do you take it now? Which city do you pick?

Pros: Living for at least three hundred more years. So many possibilities to experience (except travel, of course).

Cons: Outliving everyone you've ever loved. Possibility of absolute pain without the option of the relief of death.

If you don't take it, you continue to live as you have.

ETA: You don't age, which would probably mean reinventing yourself every 50 years or so. "Retiring," then showing up somewhere else as someone else. Let's say documentation is not an issue.

What ritual/regular experience that you had in your childhood do you really miss nowadays?
I miss our annual family holiday in Italy, because me and my sister always had a lot of fun there, which was rare, because usually we were fighting like crazy.

And I really really miss the hiking trips I experienced with my grandma, her SO, his kids, my sister and my cousin.


When and why did you stop doing it?
I think around the age of 15. It just wasn't the same anymore and I couldn't stand being with my family for a whole week, just lying on the beach.

I think the hiking trips stopped for the same reason, we just grew too old to enjoy sleeping in cabins on the mountains. Some of us grew up to be snotty teenagers and we just didn't get along anymore.
