I have been listening to Crazy Love (the cover by Jason Manns and Jensen Ackles) on repeat for the last few days. I am in love with that song (as well as the original Van Morrison version).

Plus any other comparisons you can make involving soft drinks :D

We (my SO's cousin was driving) rearended a lady last night that stopped in the middle of the freeway in an effort to cut into traffic merging onto another freeway. She kept driving! We had to follow her for another 2 miles before we were able to get her to pull over, where she began screaming at Cousin while we were waiting for the cops. Then she drove off!! We had to chase her and call the cops back to give them our new location. Luckily she drove into a cul-de-sac and we were able to block her in when she tried to drive away again. And all I wanted was to go home after a long day...
(people and pets don't count)
Also up for debate, is Skee Lo's song "I Wish" a great song or the BEST song? If you fail this test Kratos Kirby will come slaughter your wife and children.
Do you think that's excessive?
Have you ever seen something like that?
And...for the people with dogs...
I've had my pup for almost a month and he's still not house broken. We're doing the crate training thing, but eh.... He knows he's supposed to go outside after he gets out..but he doesn't seem to understand that he needs to go outside the rest of the time. I can catch him and get him outside if he starts to poo on the carpet..but I'm not quite quick enough when he starts to pee.
Any tips? I'm about ready to go insane.

Someone told me that a person with black hair is less likely to get hired than a brunette/blonde/red head.
Have you heard of this?
I have black hair - should I bleach it so I can get hired for whatever job I want next!?!?

i was sick for two days, and totally better yesterday. today, i am again sick.
why am i sick again today? how could i get better, and then get sick again?!
I got an internship for the summer. It's not one of those "lucrative" internships that pay their interns a ridiculous amount of money. In fact, the internship is unpaid. It's just something that seems like fun and relevant to what I think I'd like to pursue as a career. But knowing me, I change my mind all the time and in a few months, I could decide that I want to pursue something else entirely. I think the internship would be fun, and I'd get to live with one of my best friends in New York City. I'm also a junior, so this would be my last summer before I graduate.
I can take a few classes at my college, which is supposed to be gorgeous in the summertime. My boyfriend will also be there, which is a huge incentive. It would be a relaxing summer in quiet Upstate New York.
Help me weight out my options. What should i do? What would you do?
Should I get a T-shirt?
Get a last coffee and gelato?
Get food at the airport?
A fan likes the books and collects info about them and makes a website with an encyclopedia of sorts. The site is free and the fan makes no profit and the author doesn't mind.
Book series finishes, author plans on writing a follow-up encyclopedia with info about the books and what happens to the characters afterwards.
Fan wants to publish his website into a book. Author tells him no, because she is publishing her own.
Fan goes ahead and tries it anyway, author gets mad and takes him to court.
Do you think author is well within her rights to refuse the fan's publication? Do you think the fan has every right to publish whatever he wants?

For example(s), when I was in 8th grade, I read the entire Redwall series to comfort me during anxiety attacks that caused me to stay home from school for weeks. Now that I'm older, I re-read the series to give me comfort when I'm dealing with a rough time.
I'm also just about to re-play Jak 2 and Jak 3 on the PS2. When I first started being home-schooled in high school, these were the two games that I obsessed over and spent so much time playing to take my mind off everything. Just the thought of playing them is giving me a comfort I can't explain.
What about you?
Nevermind. Figured it out.
What's a good Wii multiplayer game? We've had a Wii for a few months now and the only game we have is still Wii Sports. We tried Galaxy, but it made me and my mother nauseous. Same with Twilight Princess. We liked Mario Party 8. Hated Cooking Mama. I feel bad because we I whined so much for a Wii and now we hardly use it. =(

I have a gas stove. I sprayed the inside of the oven with Easy Off Oven Cleaner and it has to sit for like... hours. I know if I were to turn the oven on right now, we'd all go ka-boom.
But, do you think it'd be ok if I used the stove top to cook something cuz I'm really, really hungry? Would the fumes ignite from inside the oven if I used the stove top?
I guess I could try and then I will update on tqc_updates if I live. But, I'm looking for experience here. Gas stoves scare me.

For at least three weeks I've stopped "catching up" on missed TQC. I now feel like one of the internet type of people who only read it when they're at their desk.
Does that make the rest of you people reading it religiously "bitter"?
ETA: For yourself?
ETA: would you care to elaborate on how this would make you feel? instead of just a one worded answer.

Google fails me.

It is a giant yellow smiley face. Used all over to express a "HE HE HE" sort of happiness. Often used in snarky posts of SF_Drama or the sorts. Its eyes are looking to the left. It has a :D mouth. I'm not insane. Really.

The drugs, the iud and the insertion are both listed under "billed to patient" and "billed to insurance"-- I assume my insurance didn't cover it all, that's understandable. The drugs actually show a balance of zero under billed to patient, so whatever. Adding up insertion costs comes to about what I'm finding online as an average cost for insertion. But, adding up (IUD billed to patient) and (IUD billed to insurance) totals over $800 and my information says the iud itself is from 300-400 dollars.
Is there a way to dispute this? I'm pretty sure there is when you're working with medicare or what have you but here I don't know. I have blue cross/blue shield, if that helps.
Alternately, how might I come up with nearly $500 in 2 weeks ish? >.< Anyone know someone in the market for a kidney?
EDIT~ I managed to call them today, and my insurance did not cover the iud or the insertion (SO i imagine what the bill is showing is that the insurance paid its "we don't cover this we're just helping you out" portion) BUT that's moot because they did, in fact, file the wrong paperwork and it is supposed to be free and my balance is now $00.00. Thank god.
I personally like kikirikí instead of "cock-a-doodle-do" or kara-kara-kara-kara instead of "cluck" lol
I think mine will be depressing considering it's only april and it's:
So, what's your fastest mile time? How often do you run?
I can't STAND people being audible with their food... like slurping or smacking. My friend Chris doesn't have any manners and sucks on ice pops so loudly you can hear it OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE, and no matter how many times I ask him to stop, he won't change his manners. Ass.
I've got this honey-pineapple vinaigrette to put on it.

Would you recommend getting an iPod, or some other brand of ridiculously small musical device? Why?
Does anyone other than me still not have an iPod? If not, why not?
(For me it's mainly because of the price, although for years I thought they were silly. I do want one now, obviously.)
When I am taking notes from a workbook I am always conscious that I write too much. I guess its not a bad thing as it is certainly better than not writing enough but do you have any tips for note taking? How to write in your own words?

What are you studying?

how can i supply alcohol to people at the party without my parents noticing???
like, should i smuggle vodka cruisers in vitamin water bottles or what??
cheers for any advice!!
EDIT: pretty sure most of you are misunderstanding my situation because i explained it in a shit way...
so, im locking my parents in the house during the party, i just cant let them know i will be providing the alcohol, hence the sneak it in thingy. but thanks for the help so far, it's certainly been ... illuminating =]

In Bad Boys 2 our two heroes are preparing to break into someone's house and rescue a hostage. In order to do so they want the house owner to think that his security systems is crazy. They hope he will turn it off and they can sneak in undetected. The plan is to use cats and iguanas (?) and either the cats of the iguanas or both get thrown over the fence to cause the appropriate troubles. And that's the question that is causing the argument: Who gets thrown over the fence? The cats? The iguanas? Both? Any fans of the movie here who can answer that?
I'm thnking of buying one for my room when I move. Any suggestions on what kind?
Who, in your opinion obviously, is possibly the orneriest member of TQC? Caveat/request please: pick someone other than yourself.

D'you guys realize the ridiculousness that was trying to fucking get my layout to work? That was so shitty.
edit: Now that I look at it on my own journal yeah it is kind of boring. It looks a lot better on my friends page, I think, where the entries are smaller with less white space, because you can see more of the union jack between the shorter entries. I'm alright with that, though, 'cause I don't really look at my own journal that often, but I look at my friends page every day.
How do you recognize that the things you complain about are petty?

Ok, what was the name of the guy from the 1800's (or 1900's?). He worked in a hospital I think, for delivering babies. The hospital had a high death toll and many women died because the doctors who were delivering the babies did not wash their hands. So this guy told them to wash their hands and the death toll fell a lot.
ETA - NVM, it just popped in my head right now. It was ignaz semmelweis.

my feet always itch really, really bad after i shower and i have no clue why. they never itch at any other time, they're not dry or flakey or abnormal looking so i don't know if it's athlete's foot. i also know it isn't my shower because this happens regardless of where i shower.
what causes this mysterious foot itch?! will i ever be healed?

And, to make up for the boring question:
What's the most humiliating way to die? Answers can be as contrived as you want.
i'm thinking about just emailing it to my dad. i don't have a very good connection with my parents at all and they think i'm a talentless dumbass. i'm asian and i don't try very hard in school even though i do manage to scrape up A's. usually....and my brother's a genius and it's really disheartening...
ever since like a year ago, i've found that i'm pretty interested in photography but i don't know if it's worth showing. (i just privated some pictures in case of awkwardness if i DO send it) i'm getting REALLY annoyed because my parents want to send me off to random shit camps like fucking SAILING camp or some shit and i really don't want to do it and they keep asking me what i AM good at and i'm like "um..." so now they want to send me to an SAT course and i'm freaking THIRTEEN (fourteen in a month). i HATE thinking and worrying about that stuff....i just want to run around outside and have fun.
anyway, i've never had any formal training or anything and i take everything with a kind of broken canon powershot and enhance it with photoshop (which i realized i've done too much so i'm trying to stop)/.
so should i show them? my dad KIND of thinks i'm okay at photography since once he looked at some dumb pictures i took at a triathlon.
sorry for the length
So, is there anything that you wish you had known about living on your own before you moved into an apartment from a dorm or your parents' house?
Also, approximately how much do you spend on groceries per week for just yourself? What kinds of things do you eat? Are you a vegetarian?
Also, any good tips for keeping money or debit cards safe? I was considering not carrying my purse and only having a slim wallet on me with essentials (ex: ID, Debit card, Insurance cards). Is this a good idea or should I have a purse anyways?
