If a person's marriage ends by cheating, and the cheater starts a relationship with the 'other person' afterwards, what are the odds that this relationship won't end in cheating as well?

Do you think it is possible for a cheater to stop cheating and be faithful from then on?
If so, when?

if you want kids, why do you want them? i personally don't want them, and even if i did, i'd adopt. so i'm curious why some people so badly want to have kids and actually give birth to them.

eta: if you DON'T want them, why not?

In which state did you complete the majority of your high school education? (List country if outside the US)

How thoroughly did your high school instructors explain and teach the Theory of Evolution? (1 = worst, 5 = best)

Did your high school instruction cover any alternative theories, such as Intelligent Design or Creationism? (Presented as science, not philosophy, etc)

The first Jackass movie is on Comedy Central, and as I'm watching it I'm wondering:

Why the FUCK didn't Bam Margera's parents ever like...disown him? Kick him out of the house, or like, constantly get back at him?

They don't seem stupid to me, so why do they just blindly put up with his shit?

If you had a kid like that, how would you deal with it? Would the salary he'd be getting be enough incentive for YOU to put up with his shenanigans?

1. Are there any foods you just can't eat based on their appearance?
For me it's lotus root, thanks to that horrible Snopes article.

2. If you drink bottled water, are you brand loyal or do you just buy what's on sale?
I prefer Dasani, but I'm not too picky.

3. What is your favorite brand of chocolate? Do you prefer dark or milk?
Dove - milk or dark

1. Would you consider breastfeeding pictures to be "safe for work"?

2. If the pictures were posted under an lj cut with a warning before the cut, is this acceptable, even under a community rule that states no nudity?

2a. What if there was no warning?

3. Do you feel pictures of women breastfeeding are essentially pushing their "breastfed is best fed" ideologies on others, or is it simply a part of their day that they felt the need to share?

4. If you were in a community with a "sfw", no nudity rule, would you speak to the OP or moderator about it, or would you let it slide?  What if it began happening continually, with different women posting pictures of themselves breastfeeding?

5. If breastfeeding is a healthy and natural phenomenon that all women were meant to do and it is therefore acceptable to post pictures of it online, could another woman post a picture of herself menstruating, since that is also a healthy and natural phenomenon that all women were meant to do?

I am currently building a Dell laptop that will be using for typical college student stuff. I don't play computer games or anything like that. It will just be for emailing, web surfing, writing papers, and storing quite a bit of music and tons of photos.
I think I've got mostly everything figured out, except the video card. I don't really know anything about video cards.

Given what I plan to use it for, there would be no reason for me to spend $100 to upgrade my laptop's video card from a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3 100 to a 128 MB NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS, would there?

I'm not an economics major :P

1. If your cost of living is low, and if the things that make you happy don't require money, why not live off welfare (assuming welfare can pay for shelter, food, and something basic like Internet/TV)? Why work your ass off?

2. What are some factors that make living life on welfare extremely difficult?

3. Why do you think homelessness is still a problem if welfare is available to these people (assuming they qualify)?

4. If you're on welfare, are you happy? Why? Why not?

5. These questions stem from the thought that people work to make money to be happy...where in this society, money is linked to happiness. Do you think this is true? Please explain?

Sometimes when I'm off at work I go there and cook on the stove they have in the back.  The thing about the stove is that only one burner works (of course it had to be the smallest one) and there is only one skillet that is like 8 inches in diameter.  It's the only stove I have access to in my college town, but I do feel a little embarrassed.    Should I go there tomorrow night and cook soy sauce chicken with baby corn and snow peas?

What else should I cook? I'm wanting something Asian-y.

my girlfriend and i have been together for a couple years, on-and-off now. the majority of time spent is AMAZING and our phone conversations, usually, are stellar as well. but, both of us are clinically depressed and we definitely know how to get at each other's throats. we can be SO horrible to one another but then absolutely beautiful the next minute.

now, this is obviously having its toll on both of us and attempting to take a break and/or give each other space has failed in the past. neither of us want to lose each other but are trying to figure out what the hell we can do to make things better.

any advice? activities we can do that will help keep things interesting(aside from sex)?

Okay, I need help here. Does anyone know the name of this childhood movie?

It's about a kid who like goes on some adventure to some magical land. And there's a king there with a staff, and the kid flies there in a balloon with some other creature, who introduces him to the king. and they take the kid on a tour, and there's some door that the kid isn't supposed to open, but he does, and then like pretends he didn't. And THEN this creature escapes, and its like this black shadow monster or something. And everyone gets frozen, and the kid has to use the kings staff to fight the monster, and there's this spell he uses to fight the monster and it goes like "shazzama Pajama" or something.

I'm getting married next Saturday and I need a tan so I don't look so pasty. Obviously using a regular tanning bed is out as A) I don't have time and B) it isn't healthy. Now I have two options Mystic Tan or a couple visits to a high-pressure tanning bed. For those of you out there that tan:

If you've used Mystic Tan did you like it or dislike it?

If you've used the high-pressure beds did you like it or dislike it?

I don't really have much of a base tan anymore so I need something fast, also we're going to the Caribbean for our honeymoon so I need to some color so I don't get burned.

party themes?


I'm planning my 22nd birthday bash and I'm stuck on a theme!
I want to do something where people will dress up and have a good time.
Prom is out, we're all kind of over that. I was thinking some sort of space invader or video game character theme.

The party would be at the end of May/beginning of June and could possibly take place outdoors (depending on weather, partygoers and how I feel) if that factors in.

HELP PLEASE, thank you!

Other than bounce on it while my friends list refreshes, I'm not sure what else to do.

Any suggestions?

Do you have any friendships where you met the person through a mutual friend who neither of you are still friends with?

What happened?

I have two, both are online. The first one is a girl who my then friend said I would like so she us the others' screen name, eventually shit happened-the mutual friend got immature (not relating to our friendship) and both of us fell out with her. The other girl I replied to a comment she left in our friend's journal, because her name was Bayliss (another character from Homicide, Life on the Street) and we had a conversation in his post via comments as if we were really the characters. The mutual friend there just stopped coming online to the point where we both dropped him from our friends list.

Let's say that two of your significant other's female friends annoy the hell out of you. And let's say that they're not super tight friends, but are friendly and hang out on occasion because they live next door to one another in their dorm, and they have a mutual friend on the same floor.

Would you tell your S.O. that you don't care for these 2 "friends" and tell him/her not to invite you to hang out with him/her if they're in his presence, OR would you keep your mouth shut and just tolerate their presence?

I mean, if my S.O. was BFFs with these girls, I would hesitate in expressing dislike for them, but since they're not really really good friends, I'm kind of torn.

How do you tell someone to shut up without telling them to shut up?

My mum lives with me as her health is bad and the reason I don't sit with her much is because she talks constantly. I'm with her just now and she will not shut up. She is always saying something, whether it be about whats on TV or what she reads in the newspaper. Even when I ignore her and don't answer her she keeps on and on and on and I swear its driving me up the fucking wall!!!!!

I can't come straight out and say it because she will get upset and either start crying or feeling really bad about it :S

You are in a stable relationship with someone you want to have kids with. For some reason, you must have them right now (well, in 9 months) or you must wait 15 years. Which would you choose? What if you had to wait only 10 or as many as 20?

So I just opened up a New York Pizza and Pasta restaurant a couple of months ago. We focus mainly on deliveries, but we're located in a high traffic area, so we get plenty of walk-ins as well. There's not much to do besides read old magazines while customers wait for their pizza, so I've decided to install a stereo system.

So I come to you, TQC, in need of assistance. What kind of music should I play? I need something that will give my place some much needed ambiance. I was thinking Italian and/or old style shit, but I am musically ignorant, so help a brother out.

Free pizza for anyone who answers. srsly.

What movie (or possibly TV show) does it sound like this is from?

Someone owes somebody else 200 dollars because they lost a bar fight or something. And at some point, the guy takes out this wad of cash and says something like "Okay here it is." And the other guy's like "How do I know it's not just a 20 with a bunch of ones wrapped around it?" And the first guy's disappointed. He tries a similar trick later.

I am the fifth person or so to get on the bus to downtown to work each weekday. Most people who get on the bus at this time are in their 30s - 50s. I am 22 so I imagine I stick out a little bit on the bus. There is one other person who gets on the bus before me who is around my age and therefore also sticks out. I have never spoken to him nor given him eye-contact.

He has displayed some odd behaviour and so here I am to ask your opinion on it because I'm a bit flabbergasted.

We both get off at the same stop and we take the same route through multiple buildings (3, to be precise - our downtown has this above ground network connecting buildings called the +15), but we don't work in the same building.

The first building we both enter has an 1 person-wide escalator. Two times now, in the last month, this dude has run up the escalator as if to run away from me. The latter being at a time when the escalator was out of service, which meant that the down escalator was now serving as the stairs to go up and down. If people are coming down, that means the people who are going up have to wait in a line until it's cleared and vice-versa.

The latter time is what really got me thinking this guy had an issue with me. There were several people on their way down but it seems like he couldn't wait and so he heaved up his heavy bag and held it at the side and ran up the stairs, kind of squishing the people coming down.

Do you think he is afraid of me?

1. What is a good tool for dipping Oreos, especially when the milk is toward the bottom of the glass?

I'm thinking something like a spoon ladle, only flatter and with holes to let the milk flow through.

EDIT: Let me clarify some methods are are BAD. Keep in mind that I prefer the entire Oreo to get mushy. I could potentially bend the handle of a flattish device that has holes in it, but I don't know what to use. What are those absinthe spoon thingies called? Just absinthe spoons?

A. Gripping devices (e.g. tongs), they risk the Oreo falling apart when it gets mushy.

B. Using fingers gets milk on them over and over again.

C. Refilling the glass for every dip, especially when I'm eating other food to drink the milk with, is annoying.

2. Why do people continue believing in a benevolent, and omnipotent God when presented with the problem of evil (the fact that a a benevolent, omnipotent god is allowing evil to exist)?

The only answer these religiots give is "God works in mysterious ways," which doesn't actually explain anything and is just as much a cop-out as justifying terrorism by saying "terrorists work in mysterious ways." Of course, God could easily do great things, but doesn't, cruelly allowing humans to suffer, so he is worse than any terrorist and evil dictator that has ever existed.

When would you say a person's personality is "set?"

I was always eager to become an adult, because I thought people would be so much more mature, but now I'm realizing that some people never mature past the high school level. And then a lot of elderly people seem to be unwilling to change their ways (as my grandmother once said: "I'm too old to learn!"). So when does this happen?

Or a better way to phrase it might be... what makes a person's personality stagnate?

to integrate art and music into my lessons (required), i'm teaching how music and lyrics can be an expression of what's happening in a person's life, and my students are also going to decide on a theme for their own "album" and design a cover for it. before they design it, however, i'd like to show them some album covers and ask them what they might be able to tell about this artist or this particular album based on the artwork.

One of these days I am going to break his face

My brother throws bitchfits at least eighteen times a day. It takes pretty much nothing to get him in a ridiculously pissy mood, he explodes at people (though keep in mind, only women... I have a feeling it's relevant but I have no way of really knowing)... some one just has to say something to him, anything, totally innocent... and all of a sudden it's a string of "SHUT THE FUCK UP, BITCH!"

TQC, why is my brother such a gigantic hole?

And why is it whenever I "fight back" (which means I'm snarky to him, or I just plain ask, "dude, why are you throwing a tantrum? No one did anything"), my parents tell me to shut up and stop "egging him on"? Why do they refuse to deal with him? Why is it okay for him to be a monumental dick?

You're the pilot on a small aircraft and you're losing altitude. There's too much weight on board. You kick out the luggage, the seats, all the meals. It's still too heavy, but only just barely.
