Does anyone know if there's a way to turn up the microphone on an HP Pavilion 6500 notebook? I tried with my messenger service, but it doesn't seem to be loud enough, even if I'm clapping right in front of it.

Help!

I remember watching a movie when I was a little kid (so this is the 80s or early 90s) about a girl who travels through her mirror into another land. It's definitely not Through the Looking Glass. I think first a creature from this other world comes through her mirror into her world, and then she follows him back through. I don't really remember anything else about it, though.

pretend that your college is hosting a formal (which means dressing up, dancing a bit, and having a buffet). you're really excited about it, because you had a great time last year and you like dressing up, plus you NEVER get to hang out with your friends and your boyfriend at the same time, and now you will. now imagine your boyfriend simply decides he doesn't want to go. how would you feel?

Why, in Mean Girls, does this happen:

Regina: Is butter a carb?
Cady: [Rudely] YES.

Because it's not, is it? Was it sarcasm? It didn't sound like it to me.

I've watched MG probably about 20ish times now and it bothers me every time.

(I really, really hope butter isn't a (secret) carbohydrate otherwise I shall look extremely stupid when posting this...XD)

Dear TQC:

I am looking for a humorous list along the lines of "5 Ways to Pick Up Girls". I KNOW some random humor site out there has done one.

Have YOU ever seen a list like this? Will you please share the URL? :D

Thank you!

Because I'm about the weirdest person in the world, I like to write a lot of letters and whatnot with my dip-pen quill, meaning I have a quill, and I have a bottle of ink, and I have to dip the quill in the ink.  I use this because it makes me seem pretentious, and I also think the quality of lettering it produces is lovely.

However, there comes a time when you must buy new ink.  I bought my latest bottle of ink in Ireland, when I was visiting the Book of Kells, because the ink was there, and I remember I needed some.  It cost me about 5 Euro, which is about $9.  However, back here in the US, the only ink I can find is like $30!

There has to be a weirdo like me out there in TQC.  Weirdo, where do you get your ink, and how much does it cost?

So lately my sleeping patterns have gotten a bit out of whack.  I've been going to bed around 3-4 in the morning, and getting up at about 11.  What do you think is the best way to fix up my sleeping pattern by Monday, so it's more of a going to bed by 11, waking up about 7-8am. Should I do one night where I don't get much sleep, or go to bed earlier when I'm not tired?

So

There was just a huge fight in my dorm including blood shed, vomiting and setting off of fire extinguishers which led me and my fellow dorm-dwellers to stand outside for 45 minutes at 3am waiting for them to investigate and clear out the building. (Also during all of this the majority of the people involved in the fight got away.)

Tell me TQC, what sort of evil and tortures should be done to these people for disturbing everyone and their brothers?

late-night musings

If a woman came to you and said she fantasized about being raped, how would you react? What if it was a man saying he fantasized about being raped?

If a woman came to you and said she fantasized about raping someone, how would you react? What if it was a man saying he fantasized about raping someone?

---

I don't think fantasies about being raped are uncommon or wrong. It doesn't mean the person wants to be raped, and I wouldn't think there was anything wrong with them, male or female

I would be a little disturbed by someone saying they fantasized about committing rape--moreso if that person was a male--but I don't think I'd really think less of them. Fantasy is fantasy, and not real.

I actually feel kind of bad for being more disturbed if the person who fantasizes about raping is male. I think it's because stereotypically it's the man who rapes the woman, and it's something that scares me.

I think the world of fantasy is interesting.

Last night at a festival I met a nice boy.
Unfortunately there are two slight issues;

1. It was dark so all I really know is that he has very soft hair.
How likely is it he will be rather unattractive?

2. We were both a bit foxed. What in your opinion is the likelihood he will find my name in his phone and have no idea who I am?

Lets have a laugh!

Someone you could deal without

You have been granted the power to make one person (currently alive) disappear forever. They just suddenly blink out of existence, you won't be caught, but it's not like said person never existed, so there will be some kind of reaction in most cases.

Do you use your power?

Who do you use it on?

What do you think will happen if this person disappears?

So my car is like 11 years old and the black of the windshield wipers (not the blades the actual base you put those on) is coming off so the metal shows through this wasn't an issue in the Winter but now that the sun is out it's distracting since it shines off the metal. I don't have a job and therefore am rather low on cash, my question is, is there a fairly cheap paint I can buy and say Michael's that will work well/stay on the wipers so as I don't get the reflection in my eyes?

I just found out Jason Mraz (who I love) is coming to Detroit. I had checked his tour dates earlier and thought he wasn't coming, so I just flipped a shit when I got the email from ticketmaster.
Five questions.
1. None of my friends like Jason Mraz, so I'd be going alone...should I go alone?
2. Is there a way to buy backstage passes like you could win from a radio station? (Yes, I know I'm creepy)
3. If ticket sales start at 10:00 AM, what time should I really get there?
4. If it says "mainfloor general admission standing room," that means we just stand there, right?
5. Have you ever gone to a concert alone? What was it like?

So I remember this online game from a year or two ago.

TQC, sorry for asking lame questions, but I need some help.
Yesterday I went out on a date with my best (guy) friend, and it was ... good i guess. I made out with him, and I think he really really really likes me. But... I just don't know if I'm really attracted to him. He's such a nice guy and the kind of guy I probably should be dating, but I just don't know what to do. Do you think it's just anxiety that will go away, or will this just be one of those things that build and build into bigger and bigger problems?

Also, do you think being 'best friends with benefits' is a terrible idea? Because I don't think he'd think it would be a good one, but I kind of do.

alienware users:

this question is for those of you that have an alienware computer - specifically a notebook, but any alienware user will do:


1.) has your computer ever fucked up in any way? and if so, what's gone wrong?
2.) how has customer support treated you? alienware claims that, for users under warranty (i found out i still have a couple weeks left!) they will come to your house and fix it for you.





to answer my own first question - the keys sometimes don't register and i have to go back and retype them, the little notch thing at the top that closes the computer is no longer spring-loaded and i have to push it over myself, the cd burner scratches cds and i can't even listen to them because they suck so much, the volume adjuster wheel thing broke and is now stuck inside my computer, and to top it off, the mic/speakers are somehow.. fucked up. like too close. and the mic picks up everything and squeals if you turn it up too much. oh yeah, and it overheats.

i love my computer so much, but i don't think it's even been a year, and all this shit is happening to it. i'm upset.

Am I going to be a horrible scar face?!

I got my eyebrows waxed Friday and instead of just the regular redness I apparently got an extremely painful burn (on both eyebrows/eye areas). On my left eye its a lot worse and this... 1/4"x2" patch of skin is just on fire. I figured it was nothing but it's still bothering me and the skin has cracked off and there's a little almost bloodishness (you know what I mean? Not actual blood but maybe right beneath the skin) on part of it. I haven't been poking at it and I've applied Neosporin and just sort of moped.

My questions then are...

a) Do you think this is going to scar?! I'm so vain, I know, but damn its huge and scary looking. :<
b) Can I really get anything done by going back to the place that did this? I've been there before with different people for hair cuts and brow waxes before with all good results and I really like all the people there, but I mean, damn. And if I did go back, what are they going to really do? Offer me a free brow wax? -_-;

Alternatives to sunglasses?

In football and baseball people wear black lines under their eyes, across their cheekbones. This is to help block the sun, yes? And kohl does the same thing but is applied to the eyelid. Would ordinary eyeshadow and thick eyeliner work as well?
I've been wondering if it matters where the dark is applied in relation to the eye. I mean, it's a lot lower on the face for the sports makeup than kohl. Is the important thing for the dark colour to be below the eye? Where do you think the sun would shine to cause the most trouble?
What about non-prescription dark contacts, anyone here ever use them instead of sunglasses?

In a nutshell: anyone have any knowledge or experience with reducing the glare of the sun by using cosmetics?

There's this kid on my school's swim team that makes me want to punch him in the face every time he opens his mouth. He constantly talks about how he only listens to underground artists because anyone that's played on the radio has "sold out." He likes to say things that will make him look edgy, no matter how stupid his opinion is. He's constantly kri-kriing that no one likes him because he's "different." He even writes bad poetry about how everyone is against him because he's soooooooo uniiiiiiiiique. In reality, everyone hates him because he's an epic jackass.

The only thing that seems to help is nicotine. But that´s only temporary, and cigarettes are disgusting. The aching gets so bad sometimes it makes me want to cry. I wear one of those grinding guards at night because I grind my teeth in my sleep, and it only makes the pain worse.

the pink abomination.

So the other day I let my roommate borrow a white hoodie of mine on the condition that if she dirtied it, she had to wash it. Sure enough that's what she did, but unfortunately she threw it in with a few of her red clothes. The hoodie is now a dingy-looking pink.

Since I know you're all experts on doing the laundry, TQC, do you have any solutions for getting my hoodie white again? Something I should throw in the wash? Or, after realizing it can't be saved, should I stab m roommate in the neck with a steak knife? I'm open to suggestions.

I found that my tolerance is about a week.

1. What's worse, brain freeze from cold foods or biting your tongue/cheek?
2. If a guy wants to ask a girl out, but doest not want a relationship, does he just want a piece of ass?
3. Who do you feel like shanking today?  Any particular reason?

I have a Samsung SCH-u420. It was working fine until recently. I went to take a picture and it said 'Camera Error 4'. I tried deleting all of the pictures I had stored. I took it into Alltel and they didn't know what was wrong.

Does anyone know how I could fix this/what's wrong with it? Thanks in advance.

Inspired by this post.

What other fake rumors have you heard about celebrity deaths?

A few years ago I heard that Jaleel White (Steve Urkel) killed himself and left a suicide note that said "Did I do that?"

If I wanted to get a trial pair of contacts, can I just go into the place where they sell glasses and get set up to get a pair?
Do I have to have an actual eye doctor visit, or can I just take in my prescription?

I want to see how I handle contacts, but at the moment don't have $$, but will eventually.

Can the future be changed or is it already decided?

If there was a way you could find out everything that would happen to you from now until you died, would you?

What if it wasn't yours, but someone else's life you could read like a book?

Edit: If yes to the previous question, whose life would you want to read?

If the question is: Did the First World War “brutalise” politics in the interwar period?

Is it valid to discuss both whether politics was brutalised at all and whether the first world war was the root cause. Should I focus on one issue or equally on both? Should I completely ignore one?

thanks for any help you can give me.

I have mentioned here before, my mums (old) neighbours, the two women who changed their first name and surname to Reignhard Heydrich.

Years ago they were all packed up to move to Germany. Everything was packed and ready to go and it fell through at the last minute? Any thoughts why?

Decisions Decisions

Should I wear a dress to my wedding reception? It's two months after we're actually getting married, so it's not like it's necessary or anything.

But, the reception is pretty much going to be a typical wedding reception, minus the wedding party bullshit. There will be cake and really awesome toppers and a DJ and boose, father-daughter and mother-son dances.

However, I'd feel strange wearing a wedding dress to the damn thing, because the wedding would have already been held.

What say you, TQC?

P.S., you guys have pretty much single-handedly planned my wedding by voting on each question I pose. You're all fucking awesome.
