Following your recent outing as a government agent during a news report detailing your various sexual exploits in Russia, you have been forced to take a job as a grunt police officer with a man who is no less than completely incompetent. During one patrol, you two are forced to encounter what appears to be a man with a sword that is entirely too large, who has hair that defies gravity, and is partnered with a man whose arm has somehow been replaced with what looks like a type of automatic weapon.

You want to, really, leave the battle, but you find that you're unable to do anything other than stand like a fool as the two run at you, chop you, and shoot at you. Then you run up and make a half-assed slash at them that seems to completely forget that it's supposed to do damage, despite clearly connected with them and making cool sloshing noises.

In an effort to speed the battle up so you can either die or go home to your ungrateful, possibly unfaithful wife, do you:

1 - Double-click the power chord?
2 - Accept bitter defeat?
3 - Use Dark Charizard?
4 - Notice that you can suddenly turn yellow and attack people with an absurd level of choreography, and use the skill that coincides?
5 - Smokebomb?
6 - Quit because you aren't getting paid enough to fight people with huge swords and guns for arms?

Moving

You are moving in one year overseas for the rest of your life.

You have a good opportunity now to get rid of most of your stuff now to save space/time in the coming year.

Would you pack up 90% of your stuff and send it to your final destination or would you wait?

What are things you would NOT be able to live without for a year?

My friend has a cat but she can't afford to take it to the vet now.  It's nearly bald from over grooming and has licked raw spots on it's body.  What are some problems that might be the cause?

I really have no control over her, so all the 'if you can't afford it don't get it' comments do no good.  She's had this cat for like 8 years and it's been fine until recently. 

Believe me if I could, I would get rid of her cat.  Not only do I feel super bad for it, but it creeps me out with it's baldness/bloody raw spots.

What were the books your high school had you read?

Where all of them depressing as hell?



My Answer:

Alas, Babylon

Every. One. Of. Them. Was. Depressing. I think it was a plan in the school to get us to kill ourselves.

WHY

does every single YOUTUBE video i try to watch pause at 2 seconds????????

edit: let me better explain my situation. I'm on my work computer. For the past 4 days when I get online in the morning, myspace songs and youtube work. After a couple hours, SUDDENLY all youtube videos pause at 2 seconds and wont play and all myspace songs appear to play but have no sound. But my sound is working....

And the rest of the day it's like this. Then the next morning, everything is fine....until it happens again...

is anyone here a super genius that might know what's causing this?

And i mentioned the myspace thing because I'm pretty sure there is some correlation between the two.

Teal Deer about Teeth!

I had braces many years ago, and now I have a bonded retainer (bit of wire cemented to the back of the teeth) on my bottom teeth.  Last night, I was brushing my teeth, and the cement on the one end tooth broke off, so now I have a wire sticking straight up and poking me in the tongue.


I have dental insurance, but no orthodontic coverage.  I called a dentist who participates in my insurance this morning, and they said that they couldn't do anything for me, so they gave me the name of an orthodontist.  I called them and they gave me the impression that they would not treat me, and told me to call the orthodontist who put it on.  I really didn't want to go to this guy, because I think he's a fucking quack and he fucked up my braces before. But, I digress, do you think this bastard will charge me for fixing my retainer?  It was put on almost ten years ago.

hello? STRATEGIC?

Why is our Congress so dense with regards to the United States Strategic Petroleum Reserve?

Why do they think that 70,000 barrels of oil per day is going to even make a dent in the price?

Why do they think that we should stop stockpiling the FUEL for our MILITARY MACHINES?

This is something with which I'm in agreement with our president. You don't stop putting such a pittance in your STRATEGIC RESERVE or take out of it to help taxpayers - especially when its total amount is just enough to keep the U.S. going for a brief few months.

Hey TQC, will you help me decide what I should do tonight?

Option A) Go with a friend to a Brett Dennen [who happens to be one of my favorite artists and I’ve never seen live before] concert. I’d have to drive an hour and a half to get my friend who would go with me and then from her school drive an hour to where the concert is. Then after the concert I’d drop her off at school and go back to my hometown which is 25 minutes away and stay there until Saturday just studying for finals. My friend would pitch in on gas but when we get there we still got to spend like $30/ea on tickets, but it’s Brett and I don't know when I'd be able to see him perform again.

Option B) Stay at school and do things I need to get done like study for finals [which start on Monday], finish homework, clean, pack to go home next week, and watch LOST. Blah blah boring. Plus I would save $50 by not spending it on gas or the tickets.

So should I be responsible or have one night of fun before finals own me?

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT MY ASS

Does anyone else have a skirt that hangs off the back of your butt in such a way that you always feel like your ass is exposed, because it doesn't touch the bottom of your butt, or the backs of your legs? Or do I just have a bubble butt? (Please answer that, TQC, I need to know about my ass).

ALSO: T/F: I'm a pussy because I feel guilty for walking along the canal on my lunch hour, because it disturbs the nesting birds.

AND: I went home early from work the last two days, feeling severely pooped probably due to just being generally mental. Now apparently a rumor is circulating that I'm pregnant, even though my husband has a vasectomy. Do they think I'm a whore TQC? Alternatively, tell me any story you've ever heard first through 100th hand about someone getting pregnant even though their SO had a vasectomy.

Okay. So.

 

Thursday was the deadline for people to give my company a request for us to send an announcement to their colleagues/friends/whoever they want that they passed an exam that we offer. The stipulation was that they had to include a self addressed, stamped envelope.


Well.

 

Postage just went up one cent. So now I have all of these sealed letters with 41 cent stamps on them, which I just realized.

 

Options:

-Have to send them using our OWN postage, which will cost us 42 cents each (plus envelopes, plus restuffing them into different envelopes/labeling them).

-Send them and hope they reach where they’re going.

-Put the individual person’s address as the “return address” and hope that the post office returns to “sender” i.e. their intended destination (does that work??)

-Other _______________ NON SERIOUS REPLIES TOTES WELCOME

 
ETA: Buying 1 cent stamps isn't an immediate option as a)all supply purchases have to be approved and that person isn't here and b) these have to go out today.

ETA2: PROBLEM SOLVED! I'm an idiot and didn't think until now to print 1-cent labels through the postage meter and just stick them on. Ugly, but effective!

So I'm teaching a summer course in hands-on physics to 8th and 9th graders. I'm currently having trouble in developing the electricity and magnetism portion, as I'm not sure what I can do. I was not educated in public schools, not do I remember what I learned in science at that time. I was wondering, what should I teach in electricity and magnetism. I have a total of 2.5 hours to teach it (two days 1.25 hours each, and I can't assign homework) I would also like some good activities for the kids to do related to the subject.

Also, on the same lines, I have about 3 activities per lesson and my adviser for developing my curriculum says that that isn't enough. They don't want me explaining so much as showing and allowing the kids to do stuff (i.e. hands-on). Could anyone help? I'm planning on teaching Newton's laws, Electricity and magnetism, bridges and Rockets (the last two are in the course name, so I figure that I might as well).

Also, this is my first time teaching and I'm kinda nervous (especially since physics isn't my strong suit. I soo shoulda taught the Java class! I own at Java and programming. *is CS major*) Have any of you out in tqc land taught (either during the year or for a summer program)? How was it? What age group and what subject?

Thanks a lot!

Cheap, reversible ways, to soundproof an apartment

I may be moving out into my first apartment soon. I'm a loud person. I like to listen to music loud, as well. Now, I know I'll have to tone it down no matter what because it IS an apartment... I know I cant have the same luxuries I once knew of bein loud. :( But anyway, what are some cheap, easy DIY ways of making an apartment more soundproof?

I've searched the web but everythings tellin me to add these layers of stuff, then add more drywall overtop, or to rip down this or replace that. I have to leave the apartment the way I got it when we eventually move out, so I need something I'll be able to take down etc. And I need it to be cheap. I'm planning on establishing a some-what relationship with my neighbours and asking them to come to us if we are being too loud.

The main thing I'm concerned about is surround sound during movies or the amount of bass my computer speakers emit.

So any ideas that work?

Do you like going to the hairdressers? Oh my god no. I usually get my friends to do my hair because I hate the experience so much. I am applying for jobs and feel i need a "professional cut" and i am dreading it.


Have you ever had breakfast for dinner? My parents used to cook it for me when we felt silly and we would have a picnic in the lounge room. I still do it when i feel like something different.


Do you want to ask me anything?

How big do you think she'll get?
How big do each of those breeds of dogs usually get?
What are my chances of having a gargantuan dog? ( I really want one )

For whatever reason, I've always had a deep and abiding love for unintentionally amusing signs. Whether they include a humorous typo or grammatical error, or are just plain inexplicable, it always fills me with great joy when I encounter one.

So, TQC, what are some of the funniest/oddest signs you've ever seen? If you have pics, plz 2 be posting them.

For example, here's one I encountered outside a restaurant in Colorado. Mmm, beef latte.

So, I just finished my final final, and am now pretty much done with undergrad.

Did anyone else feel slightly anticlimactic when this happened?

How should I celebrate? Keeping in mind I'm very, very, poor.

Do you ever feel like the people you hang out with won't be long-lasting relationships?

Do you ever feel like the people you hang out with won't be long-lasting relationships? Yet you still hang out with them? Like, you can't see you guys keeping in touch after circumstances that brings you guys apart. I attend a community college and it's my freshman year. I feel like every quarter I meet new people and hang out a lot in a new group. Then we end up not talking that much after the quarter. I feel like when we all transfer, we won't keep in touch that much.

Is it really that worth it to have fun and talk to people with whom you know you won't end up having long-lasting relationships? How is it worth it?

Is this similar to the question "how is it worth it to keep a SO if you don't see it going anywhere?" ?

Do you and whoever it is you live with have differing opinions on what constitutes as "clean" in regards to a room/your home?

Multiple times I've been like, "Yeah! My room's clean! I feel accomplished! This bitch is spotless!" and my parents come in and are like "EHHHHH, well, it's a start."

Do you like Hot Tamales?

Do you like Sunny D?

giving thanks

Is there anyone in TQC you'd like to thank? Why?

I'd like to thank __ria, because in one of her comments to some random entry she linked to a cute white and black dress. I went out and bought it today. Thanks for your fashion sense!

Let's say you are in a relationship. Would you be mad if your s/o went to bars and were buying drinks for randoms when they were partying with? What if they were accepting free drinks from randoms at the bar? Completely different or somewhat comparable?

1. What's your favourite musical?
2. Are there any TV shows you can quote large chunks of?


Mine:
1. Evita, Sound of Music or Oliver. It is impossible for me to decide.
2. I know virtually every word in several Friends episodes - I can sit and recite Ross' wedding at the end of season four by heart.

I made a deal with my Mum tonight that if, when my results are announced (soon), I end up getting a 1st class degree, I can get it tattooed somewhere on my body. (It's a very safe bet for her, cos it's never ever gonna happen.)

Still, I should totally go through with this, amirite?
Where would I get it tattooed?
I think forehead for sure. Or a terribly classy tramp stamp

For those graduating uni/college soon, are you scared out of your freaking brain about how it's going to go?
I'm so scared. It could go absolutely any way for me :s

My friend and I both want to go on a vacation. We are both 18 and we live in Ohio. We'd like to go some place with lots of fun stuff in walking distance but if we had to rent a car that would be okay too. Obviously cheaper = better. Going between June 5 - 13 is the best. Can you suggest some fun places for us to take a vacation to?

EDIT: OKAY! NO CAR. We can either fly or drive there.

A while back, I saw Robert Downey, Jr. in Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Great movie, and awesome performance by RDJ. I also liked him in Good Night And Good Luck. I just watched the new Iron Man movie last night, and I'm now an official RDJ fan. What other movies has he been in that I should look for?
