Do you ever listen to the same song one repeat over and over and over again? If so, when was the last time and what was the song?

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).

I have 2 packs of Klondike bars in my freezer...

I want one bar, but because of the damn commercials I must ask.

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
What do you think I should do for one?

To paint or not to paint?

Say you have artistic talent and your best friends wife/gf or husband/bf comes to you and says they would like you to paint a portrait of them nude as a surprise for their SO. Do you do it? or say it's just too weird?

- I know guys are less likely to ask for something like this but for the sake of being fair I included them.

Inspired by my "adventure" last night...

If ever, when was the last time you got into a car accident?

Who was at fault?

Did anyone get hurt?

Anyone have any crazy stories?

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...

TQC, what are at least five but no more than twenty songs you think I absolutely MUST listen to in the next 24 hours? Bonus points for not trying to out-obscure everyone else in TQC.

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.

So...we have this one 4 way intersection in my town....you would think that there would only be 4 stop signs, right? Nope. 12 stop signs for one 4 way intersection and 8 stop ahead signs.

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.

How the hell to I apply/reserve an apartment when I'm two states away?? Am I just going to need to call the people and ask them to try to hold it until I can get down to TX and then I can apply in person and all that? Do I need to move down there and stay with a friend until I can get into an apartment? WTF, how do people do this all the time?

So there are two ways that I can spend my summer, and I'm completely unsure of what to do.

Option 1:
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.

Option 2:
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?

Obvious post inspiration is obvious

An author writes a series of books.

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?

Basically, whose side are you on in this situation? Why?

On Friday, my Apple laptop broke. On Saturday, I took an hour and a half bus ride to the nearest Apple store to get it fixed. The "Apple Genius" there claimed to have fixed my computer. Less than 24 hours later, the night before a paper was due in my history class, my computer was broken again.

I'm really angry and want to punch something. I would like to punch the asshole who DIDN'T FIX MY COMPUTER, but he's not here right now. What or who should I punch?

What are some things you enjoy doing (or re-doing) from your past that give you comfort?

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.

Torment or Nothingness?

Let us say you died and the angel of death appeared before you (not necessarily an angel from the Abrahamic religious tradition, just some scary, powerful entity radiating divine mojo of some sort). The angel told you that you have a choice between eternal life in hell or oblivion.

Which would you choose and why?

What if the angel offered the choice between eternal life that *might* be in heaven and *might* be in hell—you wouldn't know until after you decided—or oblivion?

Heya, TQC. I just got a bill for an IUD insertion. Now, this was supposed to be free, was my understanding, perhaps i did not ask the correct questions or they filed some wrong paperwork, but let's say that when they call me back that I'm still stuck with this bill.

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 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? I know how to, obviousley but do you have any tips for studying in general?

What are you studying?

so, im having this party...

my parents are supervising it. they said no alcohol, and they dont think that anyone is going to bring alcohol.

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 =]

Is this a stupid topic for an essay in a physics class?

Why thinking for yourself is important - relate it to science, and relate it to the movie Thank You For Smoking

ETA - I finished my crap of an essay. I forgot to make 3 valid points. Oops. Fuck it.

Bad Boys 2

I hope someone can help me settle this argument so I don't have to rent and watch the movie again.

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?

Who, in your opinion obviously, is possibly the orneriest member of TQC?  Caveat/request please:  pick someone other than yourself. 
If you have details, examples, or better yet links to make your case, might you share?


eta: oh, and just to clarify, I'm more asking about people who seem to act ornery with little to no provocation - thanks!

D'you guys like my new layout?

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.

What do you do when you're having a REALLY SHITTY day?

How do you recognize that the things you complain about are petty?

Are you grateful for everything you have, or do you take things for granted?

Has a doctor ever given you what ended up being bad advice?

Have you ever gotten more than 2 opinions from doctors about a medical condition/problem?

Does anyone else find Gray's Anatomy as horribly bad as I do?

I can't remember his name and it's driving me crazy!

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.

Alright let me add a question. Are you lonely right now? I am :(

I had/have a small ant problem. Tired of an ant superhighway going from my stove exhaust fan, under my cupboards, up my window, and into a small pin prick hole in my ceiling (totally bypassing all the food in my cupboards), I went out and bought some Raid ant traps. I placed one trap directly in the middle of the ants path, and the others in less annoying locations. Then I took a 3 minute video of the ants walking up to the trap, looking at if for a second, and then walking around, above, below, but not into the trap.

Should I send my video to Raid and let them know they suck?

When was the last time you bought something that didn't work the way you were hoping it would?


PS foaming bathroom spray is an amazingly effective ant killer.

1. Students, on a scale of 1-10 (1 being not worried, 10 being not leaving the house due to crippling anxiety), how nervous do you get over grades at the end of the semester? I'm freaking out right now and I really have no reason to be, I'm just terrified.

2. What's the last major purchase you made?
3. Do you make regular donations to charity? Which ones?

abs

I need a 6 pack ASAP (beer is acceptable). Problem is I can's do regular crunches or sit-ups because of a torn ligament in my back and scoliosis. Can you guys give me some good ab workouts that are really effective that won't leave me in severe pain?

Thanks

Do cats hate making eye contact?


Should I get googly-eye jewelry pierced into my genitals so that it looks like I'm staring wildly at whoever is giving me head?


What kind of edible/food-making plants can I still plant? Is it too late? Can I grow any of them indoors? (I semi-successfully grew strawberries in my bedroom for a while.)

What's a good freeware program that teaches you how to touch-type numbers? I'm a fast touch typist but slow down to a crawl whenever I get to patches of numbers.

And, to make up for the boring question:

should i show my parents my flickr account?

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.

My friend and I are getting an apartment together next semester. I've been living in a dorm for the last two years.
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?

TQC, be my travel agent?

This Saturday I am going to NYC on a bus trip. What can I see/do in NYC that is free or cheap?? I only have from 11am-8pm to do stuff and things and I believe we will be dropped off at Times Square or St.Patrick's Cathedral (depending on traffic due to the Pope being there). There is a possibility of having a few friends other than my boyfriend there with me.

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?
