I got this question from my homework. But I'm not asking you to do my homework, because I've already done it, I'm just curious what you all would do.

(I'm majoring in early childhood education, in case you were wondering.)

Say you were a teacher at a pre-school. You have a dozen bright eyed, bushy tailed three-year-olds under your care (I know this would be all sorts of hell for some of you, but just pretend). You've been charged with coming up with a theme for a weeks worth of curriculum for them that could be applied to lots of fun activities. What would your theme be?

The one I wrote my paper on was "camping."

Are you religious, TQC? In what religious tradition were you raised, if any?

I'm increasingly attracted to Christianity via liberation theology and the Black Baptist church tradition of the American South (awkward, being a white northerner, but that's life?). I was raised by a pack of secular humanists - Mummy's an atheist, Daddy's an agnostic, my brother couldn't care less, and though I've never liked Richard Dawkins I've never really believed in God, either, which is making this whole Christianity Thing a bit awkward. My Atheist Jew of a boyfriend is a little annoyed at me, too, heh.

my favorite band is playing a show in about a month. however, it's at a bar and the show is 21+. I'm 19.

is there any way I can get into this show? my sister is 21, but we only kind of look alike. I'm the same height & weight that's listed on her driver's license, but she has red hair and green eyes, and I definitely have brown hair and blue eyes. I don't know how closely bouncers look at photo IDs, but we have different ears & noses & eyebrows.

honestly, I've seen other people get away with using someone else's ID, but I'm afraid I'll get caught. can anyone give me any tips on getting into a 21+ venue with a "fake" ID?

eta: I should clarify that I plan to use her ID regardless, I'm just looking for dos & don'ts of fake ID usage.

is there a way to see if someone has read a message that you've sent them on facebook?

which is your favorite link/tabbing favorites site? that's a bad description, but i'm talking about stumbleupon, del.icio.us, those sites. i've recently gotten into del.icio.us, and i'm having trouble figuring out how to do the bundle tag thing. basically, what i want to be able to do is to make a section for email. my school email, gmail, and all my other email accounts are the only things i want to be saved under that. i know that this probably sounds really easy and self-explanatory, but i've tried to do this three times and i cannot figure it out. i'm thinking i might give up an switch over to stumbleupon. y/n?

what's been happening with photobucket lately? i wish i would have known about flickr sooner. flickr is beautiful. when i click on a picture from my photobucket album, the picture doesn't show up on the next page. it will only get as big as the thumbnail. i'm really angry, because all of my pictures since three years ago are saved there. is there any way to recover them safely and at their original size?

also, when i'm trying to to make an album on flickr, how come i can't rearrange the pictures once i've tried to use the "organize batch" function? i messed up by accidentally putting a picture where i didn't want it to be, and once it's been put in the place where you click and drag, they're stuck in that position. i needed to move a picture at the very end to earlier in the sequence, and none of the pictures would move positions.

okay guys, i've really looked into all of the FAQs for all of these, and i CANNOT figure it out. help please!

oh, and one more for the road. i was discussing this recently with pals.
kissing the person who has just performed oral sex on you. y/n? if no, why not?
do you think it makes a difference if it's a heterosexual or homosexual situation? (that logic being that a straight girl might not want her boyfriend's mouth to taste like vagina, but that probably wouldn't matter in a lesbian sexual encounter.)

thanks guys. finals have screwed up my sleeping schedule. that leaves me to my own devices at 5am, and this is what is produced. :D

So my iPod has a fucked up headphone jack and only outputs sound into one headphone unless you wiggle it and hold it at a weird angle. (I have tried different headphones.) Its a 30 GB iPod video thats about three years old. I have the basic apple care plan for it (but I think that only lasted a year).

I'm planning on bringing my MacBookPro into the local Apple store to get looked at for some things and I'm planning on bringing my iPod as well.

My question is, has anyone had a problem like this? Was apple able to help at all? How? Maybe a refurbished model at a discount, or could they repair this?

I'm thinking they're just going to say, this is old and you use it constantly so it's just worn out you're SOL. :( Which would suck.

Secondly, I have a dented case and a bad keyboard (I'm really hard on electronic, alright!?) on the aformentioned computer. It's also has the apple care plan (but it should still actually be under warranty). Have you ever had a similar problem? What kind of cost was associated with it?

I'd love if someone gave me a homemade gift! I think it's a really nice thing to do (hopefully my friends and family will think so too!). A couple of ideas so far are knitting scarves or gloves, and making homemade fudge. I was just wondering if any of you had any good ideas for homemade gifts?

The other Indian in the Cupboard?

A girlfriend in her mid-30's remembers a movie from when she was little that she swears was titled "The Indian in the Cupboard" but I think she's mixing things up with more current titles. The movie she is thinking of is apparently a 70's horror movie about a little wooden figurine of an Indian who apparently has a knife and comes alive at night and kills people. Any one able to help solve the mystery of what movie she's actually thinking of?

My friend gave me his old Samsung Upstage phone (which is actually pretty new) and he told me the ESN was released because he canceled the account. I called Sprint and they said the ESN hadn't been released because he didn't cancel the account. So I called my friend and he canceled it again, and after calling Spring 3 times, someone finally told me I couldn't use the phone until my friend paid off the balance he owed ($350). Does this seem like it's fair? (LOL life isn't fair). I understand not letting me activate the phone had it not been released (stolen, lost phone, etc), but my friend has called and said he canceled the account. Why does the unit itself have to be frozen until the account is paid off?

And for those of you who don't care that I'm pissed about my free cellphone I got, what are you up to this week?

I'm seeing MSI and The Birthday Massacre tonight, for my birthday, and so I'm curious. Assuming you go to shows,

1.) Do you prefer the pit, or standing off to the side?

2.) If you go with friends/other people, do you even try to stick with them? (I personally never saw the point, if you go in the pit, but some people like to try, I guess?)

3.) Have you ever gone to a show just for the supporting band(s) and not for the headlining band?

4.) Lame or okay, to wear a t-shirt for the band that is playing when you go to a show?

5.) Also, how do I keep my angry guy friend from killing all of the My Chemical Romance teenies that will no doubt be there? Or should I even care/try in the first place? (I'm leaning more towards just letting him at them, but I'd prefer not having him hauled away or kicked out, and all...)

Napoleonic Humour

I have tried (and failed) to find a transcript of the Black Adder special 'Back and Forth'. You see, there is a bit from it that I want to use as an introduction to an essay.

In it, Napoleon is asked why he goes around invading places and the answer was, to me, both amusing and quite telling.

So I ask please, does anyone know of a transcript of this episode, or could give the exact words of the question and the Emperor's reply?

She just doesn't act like a friend.


her: OMG KENDALL HAS A FACEBOOK AGAIN! (her brothers ex girlfriend from two years ago, i don't talk to her brother)
me: OMG OMG SO COOL...what does this have to do with me
her: FINE I WONT TALK TO YOU ANYMORE OKAY SORRY


i honestly don't care that i wrote this, because i could have been much meaner.


should i apologize?

or should i just keep acting like everythings okay?
OR should i hire a small asian girl to scare her at night?

Looking a gift horse in the mouth?

So I'm looking at renting an apartment and I cannot visit since it's in another country. It is extraordinarily difficult to find renters who are willing to rent out to people they're never met, but one family offered me a basement apartment in their house. The apartment itself is everything I'd want in a living space: big, nice, just within my budget and that includes internet and TV, has a washing machine, will most likely be quiet because a couple and their newborn are the only other occupants of the building, and...it's by a forest.

The only issue I have is that the location is less than ideal. I was really counting on living in the city, within walking distance or at least a short bus ride away from my job in the city center. I have friends who live in the city and I want to visit with them. I've heard it's very difficult to have a night life while living in this suburb where the apartment is because it's a half hour train ride from the city and the trains stop running pretty early...although potentially a friend might let me stay at their house once in awhile, and sometimes the parties run so late by the time they ended I could catch the first train of the morning.

I am looking at moving in about two or two and a half months, and a lot of people I've contacted have just said straight-out "no." I don't know if I should take this offer or not. The suburb has the necessities I'd need, though it might get boring, and I feel like I should be grateful to have even had a housing offer, I just don't know if I could be truly content not living in the city for the entire time I'm there (over a year). At the same time, it would be really nice to have a quiet place to live and it is near nature, and being in close proximity to the landlords might be ideal.

I told the landlord I needed a few days to think it over. In the meantime, I am desperately searching for more offers and I still keep getting turned down. What should I do? Should I take it and make do with what I have and be fortunate I have the opportunity to move overseas at all, or should I turn it down because maybe closer to the move-in date people will be more willing to rent out places?

2. What would it take for you to lend someone $200 until next Friday? (How close should you be to the person? Anything else you take into consideration?)

Are there any phrases which are meant to be intimidating but make you laugh?


I can't remember the exact name of the movie...But there was a line in which someone says "I'll neverrr telll" in a creepy voice and it makes me laugh a lot.

Yay, first question.

In Theology class, we're discussing vocations. There are several vocations, according to the Catholic church: Single Life, Married Life, Religious Life, and Ordained Life.

About single life-

Do you consider being single to be "by default" (meaning that if you are single, you are always in pursuit of a relationship) or a choice?

Personally, I think that it is sad that things are assumed of single people - that they just can't "find someone" or are in between relationships. I know that you may be "looking for someone" and think that you can't ~find them~ but being single is for the most part, a choice.

I bought a bonsai tree today!
By bonsai tree, I actually mean 5 seedlings, that I have to grow and cultivate and push through the germination period!
I am very excited about this.


Do you have a "green thumb"?
When was the last time you grew something (or at least tried to)? What was it?

Have you heard of the band Oh No Ono? Isn't it the greatest band ever good? :) Can you recommend some other happy but original-sounding indie pop besides it and Architecture in Helsinki? I'm normally not into pop but I want to start listening to contemporary stuff more and found out that pop music isn't always bland.

I'm a lady and I wear 10s and 12s in ladypants. I want some tatty ass cargo shorts, mens preferably (I don't want my ass emphasized or any hearts or cute stitching bullshit or whatevs, just baggy khakhi shorts with a shitload of pockets) and not too tight fitting, lose enough to wear boxers underneath and do some running/biking. What size would I be looking for do you think? NB: My hips could swallow Mt Doom, I am not even joking. So a slim waist fit is fine but it has to be able to -get- there.

ETA: I won't be trying to "pass" them as clothing made for womenz. They will be just shorts, on just my butt, if that's cool. For biking and dyking and whatnot.

ok, so my friend and i are in one of those things where
you think about something that happened in a movie and then it
kills you cause you cant think of what movie it was from.
well i gave up and decided to as TQC.


in this a movie a man goes to like a yard sale or something and looks through antiques photos,
he then buys one of a lady from like the 60s or the 70s,
later on in the movie he shows it to someone telling them it was
his mother.

What's something that if you can do perfectly without thinking about it, but if you actually try to think about it while you're doing it, you mess up?
