Sex Slang

What is your favorite way to say a guy couldn't get it up? I just heard "The alphabet soup did not spell go".


What other sex sayings do you like? I'm partial to "It's like throwing a hotdog down a hallway".

1.) on average, how much does it usually cost to adopt a child?
i really want to adopt a child with osteogenesis imperfecta, which is brittle bone disease, the same disease i have, but childbirth for me might be fatal.

2.) what are some of your favorite girl names, preferably ones that would go with the middle name "Mae".

Which would you rather lose?

The right to bear arms.
109(87.2%)
The right to vote.
16(12.8%)



I'd say the right to vote, b/c at least I can really do something with the right to bear arms and be sure it will have the results that I intended.


EDIT: The point that I am trying to make, that a lot of people seem to not be getting, is that hear in the US, the right to vote is not a guaranteed result. I did not vote for my mayor, my governor, or the president and yet I am still stuck with their politics and their decisions. With the right to bear arms, there is a one person one vote method b/c each person chooses whether he or she will bear arms or not. It is not a choice made by some sort of governing body and allows for equal say in the matter per person.

Also, as an fyi: I am not pro-gun at all and don't see when I would ever own one.

1. Have you ever heard any of these expressions? Without cheating, can you explain what each one means?

A. "Now you're cookin' with Crisco!"
B. "eighty-six" (used as a verb)

2. If you've heard them before, where did you live at the time?

Do you like backgammon? Are you old or Persian?

I love backgammon, I play it all day, and I am neither.

Why do I keep getting charley horses in my calves and feet?

My mom claims it's from inactivity. But I want an answer that points to an action I'll feasibly change.

Have you ever had a pet with hyperthyroidism? What type of pet? How did they treat it and was the treatment effective?

My 14 year old kitty has it. They treated her with some pill and it made her much worse, so now she's off it and howls for food throughout the night til they decide how to effectively treat it.

My Drama

Ok, so the bar that I always go to has a softball team. Last year some guy (who is our close friend) quit the team twice because he had some bad games. This season they asked him not to be on the team. Who is wrong? The people that put softball before friendship or the people that said they'd rather have someone that wasn't as good but committed to the team? Obviously, I already have my opinion formed but I also want to make sure that I'm not being unreasonable.

Was talking about this with a friend last night, and she thinks I'm a lunatic.

I worked at McDonalds for a while, and I hated the name tags. I hated that people, whom I had never met before, would use my name. Even not counting the lecherous old guys, or the guys trying to pretend they knew me("Hey, you're... Meg, right?"), I just thought it was really obnoxious and borderline rude that people would say "Hi Megan, Can I get a hamburger blah blah blah..." "thanks, Megan."

Now, I'm not, like, "A proper gentleman never speaks to a lady until he's been formally introduced," I just feel like if the only reason you know my name is that it's on the tag, you shouldn't be addressing me all friendly/familiar-like.

Am I the only person thinking this, or does it annoy other nametag-wearing people?

You work in an office environment where each person has his/her own cubicle. You come in in the morning and your co-worker approaches you and says "I hope you don't mind that I borrowed your lint roller." Your lint roller is in a drawer in your desk and you are shocked that she even knows that you have one, or more specifically, that she knows where it is.

How do you feel about it? Do you care if your co-workers go through your personal stuff? Would you be put off by it?

I normally don't weight myself often, but I did the morning after I got home from school for the summer, and this morning. I had no no shoes, dry hair, hadn't eaten, same scales, same conditions both times. 12 days apart, and I have lost 13 pounds. My question is, have I really lose 13 pounds, or is my scale wacky?

My face felt thinner, which is why I weighed myself today in the first place...but 13 pounds in 12 days? Come on TQC, what really happened?

If marijuana were legal, and a group of people were was walking around in the street smoking it, or maybe hanging out outside a building smoking it, in a similar way that people who smoke cigarettes do, what would your reaction be? I'm particularly interested if you're not into doing drugs yourself.

You know how sausage sizzles/barbeques at university can raise a lot of money very quickly and easily for a cause/charity, is there an online equivalent of that? Because people, to be completely honest, do not want to spend $20 on a tshirt or something, but would be way more likely to spend a dollar on something small. Which is how the sausage sizzle works.

Meetings and Seatings

Say that you are in a large (50+ people) meeting that encompasses employees of varying levels. There is clearly not enough seating for everyone. There are also two tiers of seating - a preferential level of seating around a conference table, and then seating along the wall perimeters.

How, in your mind, should seating be allocated? On a first come, first serve basis? On a hierarchical basis? On an applicability basis (those with the most to gain from the meeting should have the best seating)? Or on some other criteria altogether? For this question, assume that there is no one disabled in attendance.

On a related note, would you be comfortable sitting down at a meeting if your boss or other people outranking you were standing? Why or why not.

Poll #1184248 Hypothetical

An ultra-conservative president gets elected, and wants to clean up the country and 'return it back to God'. The first thing he wants to clean up are the movies. Through a series of strong incentives, he gets Congress to back him up and certain laws are passed where it's now illegal for films to be made or owned that contain sex or violence. You can serve 6 months in prison for every 'taboo' video found in your possession. Needless to say, they'll never broadcast these movies on tv ever again. Also, at this time, all software and hardware that allows copying from disc to disc is taken off the shelves, so if you don't own them now, you can't buy them. Then, the president offers a buy-back program. For every 'taboo' dvd you turn in, you'll get $100. Would you turn in your dvds for money?

Yes. I turn them in. I can earn some decent cash and it's getting too risky to own these films
7(7.2%)
Yes. Only after I copy my dvds with the equipment I have now. I'll hide the copies well
47(48.5%)
No. Fuck that. I'm not giving up my movies
31(32.0%)
N/A. I don't own any dvds
6(6.2%)
Other
6(6.2%)

The president's next act to 'cleansing' involves controlling sex. In his mind, sex should only occur when the couple is trying to conceive. All other sexual encounters are wrong. In exchange for a big raise, he gets Congress to support an act that makes birth control illegal to sell. Stores around the country stop carrying condoms, and birth control pills are no longer provided through pharmacies. Black market birth control exists, at 10x the price you pay now. What do you do?

Become abstinent and go through an orgasm-free era
0(0.0%)
Purchase the black market birth control at the steep price
28(28.9%)
I can't afford the birth control. I practice the pull-out effort and cross my fingers
15(15.5%)
I make DIY condoms out of Gladd bags and rubber bands
10(10.3%)
I shall call these my masturbation years.
15(15.5%)
Other
29(29.9%)

And lastly, the president offers tax-break/refund incentives if you attend church once a week. All churches will have scanning machines, where your ID is flashed. A security person checks each ID, to make sure it matches the owner. Anyone who attends church weekly for an entire year will either pay 50% less taxes (if you typically end up paying taxes), or they'll see their refund double (if they typically end up receiving a refund). Would you go to church 52 times a year for monetary incentive?

Yes. Sign me up
56(57.7%)
Yes. I already go to church every week or so. This hardly changes my lifestyle
5(5.2%)
No. I shall not

Deleuze + paracetemaol dosage

I hope this make sense, because it really does sound like a stupid question...

I've been taking paracetamol for a couple of days, today I tried taking 1 instead of 2 pills but after two hours it had worn off so I took another one, and two hours after that I took another 1.

1. Is there anything wrong with taking half the dosage twice as often?

I'm pretty sure it wont kill me so far but

2. should i get back into the normal two every 4 hours now, or is it okay to carry on for the rest of today (it'll even out when I'm asleep anyway)

and

3. can I take 2 in another two hours? Or is it an overdose because I had 1 less than 4 hours before that?


I don't know how this whole paracetamol thing works, I ussually refuse to take it but I need it at the moment to reduce swelling in my throat and I'm worried about the liver thing. I couldn't find anything on google and I've never seen anything about it on the packet. I cant go to the Doctors to ask either I don't have time

Do you ever restrain from asking a particular question because you've asked similar ones and don't want to be labeled/thought of as 'the person who always asks about ______' or do you just not give a shit and ask because you want to and are interested in the topic?

Yeah, I have asked quite a few questions about relating to Dirty Jobs and sometimes I'll not ask one just because I want to break it up a bit and make sure I ask other sorts of questions so I'm not known as "that girl who always asks Dirty Job questions" (to the point it gets annoying or tiresome)

I'm a drama instructor for a group of middle school kids. incoming 6th graders - 7th grade.
The theme of the summer program is the olympics, and we're supposed to atleast attempt to tie our activities into the theme. I've thought of doing something with the first olympics, that way we can discuss the theater in ancient greece as well as the olympics.

I'm supposed to be assembling a rough draft of the lesson plan.
Any ideas of how I could tie things in, from improv game to script writing. Anythine that can tie into drama.

Also, anything that doesn't tie in to the theme but that would work with middle schoolers. It's been a long time since I've done theater games.

My jewelry and accessories are all over the place. I don't have a lot, but I do have some expensive pieces that were given to me by my husband and it drives him crazy to see them sitting randomly on various places throughout our bedroom.

So, I need a jewelry box or some creative thing to keep my jewelry/watches/accessories in.

What do you keep your stuff in? Any pictures of cute jewelry boxes or containers for storing your stuff that you can share? Any ideas where I can find something cute?

I'd be willing to make or personalize something as I can be good at crafty stuff. It's just the coming up with the idea part that I suck at, lol.

My birthday is on Friday and my parents are keeping my daughters for the night. I should add that this is the first time that my 8 month old has been away from me overnight, so it's sort of a big deal, ha ha.

Should my husband and I...

a) Go out for a nice dinner?
b) Stay in and let my husband cook a nice dinner for me?

Does anyone know of any symbols that represent intuition/insight/perception?

A link to info on the symbol would be greatly appreciated too.
