If you've never had an orgasm.... do you think or hope to eventually figure it out or are you just content being a nonorgasmer?
If you knew people who've never had one, would you try to encourage them to try different tips or techniques or would you not want to even talk to them about it?
How long do you think it would take you to recover from that? Could you recover from it?
If you don't really care, is there something you enjoy that many people would consider geeky/nerdy/dorky? What is it?
- What takes 15 minutes?
- Do you own a pea coat? I am buying one this week and i can't wait.
- I was given a book of breads to make along with some white bread flour. What bread should I make first?

TQC, I am turning 18 two weeks from...yesterday. So Sunday, June 15th. My boyfriend lives 800 miles away during the summer (we go to college together) and is coming to visit that weekend. It'll be short, he's coming in Friday night and leaving Sunday night. Our main day together will be on Saturday, since he'll have to go to the airport at around 4 PM on Sunday.
If I tried to go to 18+ places, such as

Fur covered children are the only kind I plan to ever have.
throw in the towel?
strike the tent?
call it a day?
Okay, I haven't slept all night - I have no idea why, but I just couldn't sleep. XD
I have an exam in five hours--I also have to be at school in about three, so I really don't have time to try and catch some sleep now. I also have another exam at 1pm.
How can I stay awake all day?
If you could commit one crime and get away with it, which would you choose? Why?
Does the idea of doing it the other way than you do it feel weird to you?
I always start a book and stop halfway through :-[
i smoke on and off. i LOVE smoking. i am talking about cigarettes here.
i am trying to stop because my boyfriend of 2 years and i are wanting to move in together and he doesn't like cigarettes. i've been more or less quit since last july. but i just... i love smoking. i see myself as a smoker, and i am drawn to people/characters and often later find out they are smokers. i enjoy it and i really don't give a damn about the health problems. i'm not the health nut type of person. i'm only getting into shape recently because my time to join the academy is coming closer and closer and despite my promised spot i would like to go through with top marks instead of sitting low on the chain.
i've tried the gum. it sucks.
i've tried the mint/cough drop type deals and those are more ass than the gum.
at my high of smoking almost 3 packs a day i tried the patch thing and it made me faint. it was too much to fast or something. i tried the lowest dosage and i got the same effect.
when i go without smoking i am mildly more depressed, and i always have to stop cold turkey otherwise i get pissy about it.
what the fuck am i supposed to do? i love my boyfriend, i want to move in with him, and i am sick of feeling guilty after i smoke or rushing to shower and brush the shit out of my mouth until my gums bleed. i would like to either figure out a good way to say "hey, i don't think i will ever quit smoking" and not have him respond with "i don't want to share my life with a smoker" or "you won't quit when you're pregnant"/"i don't want my children breathing in cigarette smoke"
so it's basically i quit for good forever. or i keep smoking and i risk losing him. i mean, he is more important, but i don't want to give up something i have done for almost 10 years, heavily those 10 years, when i don't see the risks as that huge a problem.
do you think there is some middle ground here neither of us see?
if not, what can i do to try and find smoking no longer this wonderful, large part of my life?
i don't think it is some controlling thing. i totally see his points. it really is not fun to kiss someone who smokes when you yourself do not. i'm sure if the situation was reversed and i was telling him i hate cuddling up to someone who smells and tastes like an ash tray and i don't think he'll stop when i get pregnant, people would call him a jackass for not quitting. so what do i do, TQC?
this is literally our only problem. my utter and complete lack of regard for my personal health. the smoking is the biggest part of that, but our only fight consisted of me not taking pills after i had been stuck in the hospital and the doctor told me i could die. give me a good idea, here, please!

I am wondering if anyone is offended when people claim certain ethnicity ("Native American" is a common one, and the example I'll use here) yet their "dominant" ethnicity is Caucasian or something other?
Like, I had a friend who was 100% Ojibwa native. She would get offended when joe-schmoe came up boasting "Native blood" when he was clearly white, blonde hair, blue eyes... maybe there was Native somewhere along that line, but it could not be traced back. To her, he was not native. To many, it just seemed he wanted to boast "ethnic" heritage and it embrassed and frustrated my friend.
If you are "ethnic", how do you feel about others claiming to share your ethnicity, when they clearly don't look it?
How ethnic do you have to be to be considered "ethnic"?
To those who are "mixed", can you trace your heritage back? At what point do you start/stop calling yourself "Native"? Do you consider yourself "native" even if the only native blood you might have was from great, great, great ancestors who were native? Do you ever feel weird claiming "native blood" in front of "full-blooded" natives?
ETA: I am pretty sure they're not bedbugs. They are a sandy-brown color, the size of chiggers.

My friend has an iPod nano with one of these skins ( Collapse ) from skinthepod. Will taking the "skin" off ruin the iPod or leave a sticky residue that isn't removable? I know she can just try it and see, but she wants to sell it.
In the preface, it said something to effect of 'With you it was different. With you I wasn't playing a game. With you it meant something'. It's a book about men/boys and this game they play, the score I believe is related to how many women they get laid with. I haven't read the book though, so I don't honestly know what it's about, that was just my impression.
Anyone know the title?
Various google combinations have been tried.
Regular sized envelope and everything..
Is it seriously $1.18 to mail to Canada from USofA now, or am I inputting some information wrong?

Say you've got two packages of hamburger buns. One of them is open and missing 4 buns, the other one has never been opened at all. Both of them have been sitting in the same spot, on top of the refrigerator. Why is it that the one that has been opened has not become moldy, and the one that has never been opened has?
ETA: The packages were bought on the same day and have the same expiration date
2. Is a whoremonger a pimp???
what do you look for in cookware, tqc? specifically in pans. what are some good names, what should i stay away from?
bakeware and stuff that goes in the oven isn't an issue; all we'll have in the apartment is a cooktop.
2)If I wrote a passive aggressive sticky note requesting my neighbors get their TV off the landing at the top of the stairs (even though it's not really in my way) what should I put in it? I was thinking of making some reference to Poltergeist.
Today I am going to go visit my grandfather in the hospital. When I was there last Friday, my grandma was talking about how lonely it is in bed at night without my grandpa (he has been in the hospital for about a week now), so I told her that she should get a body pillow so she had something to cuddle with at night. My husband and I were out yesterday and we picked one up for her... would it be okay for us to carry the huge body pillow into the hospital with us to give to her, or might they not allow that?
Also, I want to bring some sort of a small gift for my grandpa. Would it be tacky to bring him a picture of me and him together at my wedding, in a frame, so he can display it in his room? Or would that be a good idea? Should I just get a balloon or something instead?
I'm not very well versed in the whole "visiting people in the hospital" thing...

I always get to places quite some time after doors and I've never had trouble seeing, but I've never been to this place and it looks way bigger than the places I usually go.

Our neighbors upstairs have recently moved a dog in.
The dog has been yowling all afternoon at top volume.
I've tried knocking on the door. Nobody's home.
Do I leave them a note? Or should I just go ahead and call our leasing company?
I wouldn't care except that the dog is driving me up the wall. It's my only day off and the only thing I wanted was some fuckin' peace and quiet. Now it's not happening. Fuck.
Getting an interview at Tesco's. Nothing much but a lot to me!
When I realized that everyone in this city is fucking passive and too chicken-shit to take initiative about ANYTHING (or "interfere" with anyone else's "business") I went outside and brought the child in. She ran straight to 2 women. I assumed the older one was her mother, and I explained as politely but forcefully as I could that she should watch her child so she doesn't run away or get abducted. The woman just kind of smiled a lot and nodded and agreed with me but didn't seem to take anything I was saying seriously.
10 minutes later I went back to check on the child and saw that she was *back in the stroller outside the store*. I could not fucking believe it. I went and found the "mother" again and restrained myself from flipping out on her when I reminded her to WATCH HER CHILD. Only then did the woman bring the child/stroller into the store.
Should I have done more? I'm not sure that even if I had said all the things I wanted to say to this woman about what a negligent/selfish parent (or babysitter, whatever) she was that it would have gotten through her DENSE SKULL. I can't stop thinking about it and getting angry and regretting not trying harder to make her realize that she was a fucking shitty parent.
Also, it makes me angry that I can pretty much guarantee that if I hadn't brought the child in and said something to her "mother", no one else would have. Why are people like that?
Which brings me to my question: Am I crazy to set myself back this much and change my major to film studies--with the technical aspects as a concentration, editting or possibly cinematography, that sort of thing-- (possibly a double major with graphic design)? Do you have or are you working on a degree that your family/friends says, Why?! Thats USELESS! How's that working out for you?

It's pretty rude for someone to invite themselves to your wedding, right? I've recently been informed that someone I had an altercation with a year ago is going to show up to my wedding and make a huge spectacle of themselves and try to ruin the ceremony. Should I have the police on speed-dial just in case this does happen?
EDIT: this is my answer/reaction:
right now, i can't help but think: how did you get someone to marry you?

Does this sound too dressy? Everyone I'm with is male and they'll be in suits, plus it is a jazz club so that kind of sounds dressy anyway; but I'm worried that it'll just be too OTT and I'll look out of place.
I had a weird ass dream, but that part freaked me out. I escaped their clutches by pretending to be one of them, and just standing there silently while the others passed by, before running in the opposite direction. I wonder what my subconscious was referring to.

I'm turning 18 in 17 days. So, I'm curious. :P
I assume you do something with the calories, fat, and weight of the food... but I don't have a clue what.
My pal has lost her special calculator and is fretting about the amount of birthday cake she had yesterday...
I told her not to worry as it was her birthday, but she won't shut up about it..

I want to get a tattoo of a cartoon character. Do I have to get permission first from the creator? I understand that I would if it was a webcomic character or something on a local artist's website, but this was a cartoon on basic cable.

Have you made any friends/more than friends from it or do you just like it for the quizzes?
I called my mom yesterday and she said she had to call me back because she and her boyfriend were just sitting down to have lunch somewhere. Soooo, she calls me back like four hours later and says, "It was a long lunch" and then did this weird little giggle. Immediately, I'm like, "EW, THEY TOTALLY HAD SEX." I prefer to live in a world where my mom only ever had sex twice - once to conceive me and another to conceive my brother.
It's getting on my last nerve, and I don't want to avoid him because he hangs out with my friends often...I don't want to miss out on fun parties and outings because of this jackass.
I've tried ignoring him, and I've told him I don't have a problem with him so let it be...being rational with this guy really doesn't work. I don't care if he hates me, I just want him to shut up about it!
How do I shut him up? Insults encouraged.
I got acrylic nails and I hate them. I've never had them before, decided to get them, it's been two weeks and I'm still not used to them like everyone said I would be, and since they are growing out, I want them gone.
So, is there anything I can do to safely remove them, or am I going to have to go back into the place where I got them and have them removed there?

What are those associations you make?
I associate numbers with colors and personalities. for instance, I've always percieved the number 9 as yellow or orange, and as for its personality, 9 is a total bitch. 6 is more generous and easy-going. 3 is juvenile, and 8 is a bit of a loner and a poet. I know, I'm so bizare!
What is your worst encounter with a pet?
Does anyone know what it is and/or know how I can make it go away?
EDIT: Okay, my mum just phoned my doctor about it. If the doctor's office reckons I need to see them, which I suppose they will-- infection in the blood stream, bad, got it-- I'll be going to get it checked out 8:30 Eastern time-- less than two hours from now. Thanks, everyone!

Now, suddenly, he's got me doing more secretarial work. I still manage his finances, but now I'm taking calls, making calls, making appointments, writing letters, and dealing with complaints from the clients. And I SUCK at doing all of that. I have TERRIBLE phone skills (I really, really hate talking on the phone), and I don't sound professional at all. Plus, when the clients complain, it's like their talking in another language -- I don't know why the hell their modem isn't working! I don't even really know what a modem is!
Whenever I tell him I don't know how to do any of this stuff and if maybe he can guide me a little, he tells me he's busy. Playing World of Warcraft. I'm not kidding. One client was getting really pissed off, and my boss kept saying to me, "I'll be done in this instance in twenty minutes, keep him busy until then." When I said, "Hey, maybe we can just say we'll call him back?" he got REALLY mad at me. "That's completely unprofessional and we can lose him as a customer!" And then he got mad at me again, because his character died.
Now he wants me to send out this mass letter to all his clients telling that his rates are going up. I don't even know how to START that letter.
Soo...any advice how to write that letter? How about tips on being a good secretary?
P.S. I know this job is super lame, and I'm looking for another, but in the mean time, there are bills to pay. :(
Shall we have a big conversational pow-wow with each other, TQC? (AKA: talk, bitches! now!)
Have you ever liked someone but been so busy that you didn't talk to them for more than 3 or 4 days?
2. If so, what should it include?
3. If not, why not?
4. Is it better for black children to be left in foster care or adopted by well-meaning but possibly clueless white people?
I would probably worry a lot less, have a lot more patience, and be a lot more spontaneous without fear of consequence.
If you're me, you don't say anything to him but freak out later and plan on getting up earlier to take a different bus from a different stop.
Everyone loves a good love triangle. Well - at least until it happens to you. Anyways, my question is just about people's experience in the past with these types of situations:
I dated a guy (T) for a few months, he got cold feet, broke it off. Four months later, I started dating some other guy (D) who is like our mutual friend. We kind of dated in secret, which I don't know if that complicates the situation, but whatever. Anyways, the whole D thing is getting really serious and we just fight all the time - its not fun, and I just don't know if that's what I want right now. Also, I found out that T has feelings for me - and now he wants me back. So, TQC, if you were me, what would you do? Stable / Dependable / Slightly Boring (D) or Fun / Crazy / Inconsistent (T) ?
ETA: Do I get dressed, put on a bit of makeup and go out in the rain to get some chocolate, or is this the behaviour of an addict?

Are you going out or staying in tonight?
What are your favorite foods to cook over a campfire?
What's your favorite camp song?
Have you ever had sex outside? Did you at least put a blanket down?
Yes, and it's been bothering me for weeks. I couldn't understand why it was happening until about 30 seconds ago when my friend told me that by law all cigarettes sold must be "Fire Safety Cigarettes." The idea is if you fall asleep in bed with your cigarette, you won't burn your house down.
Did you already know about FSCs or are you incredibly slow like me?
And for all you non smokers, when was the last time you felt like you were the "last to know"?
Except now all he does is talk about her. Every day is like...
Him: Hi, how are you?
Me: Good and you?
Him: OMG I'm going to see (the girl) today!! Look at this text message of her declaring her undying love for me! This is uncomfortable for you to look at but I don't care!! Her her her!!
Me: *uncomfortable* Umm... that's really good.
It's getting really annoying. I have a feeling that it's going to get worse because he's not shy about talking about... er... sexual experiences. He wants to hang out on Saturday. What should I do?
A. Fire him from friendship. All he can think about is her anyway. He can't possibly value your friendship.
B. Talk to him about it. Since I have no tact, I cannot avoid hurting his feelings.
C. Try and put up with it and hope it goes away after a while. See how it goes. Then fire him if it gets bad.
D. (Your comment here)
I even read the wiki how article which said I should try to avoid hurting his feelings because he's *excited.* He's in his 30s and has had quite the number of sexual partners, so he's not inexperienced. He's just... wow. It's getting boring.
Oh and tomorrow I start karate. I'm excited.
I"m not a ___; I just ___ a lot.
I have weak ankles. Do you have weak ankles, too?
Here's a sound clip of it:
And if you don't know...
What would you do if you are masturbating/having sex, etc.. and your genitals(or your partner's) start making that noise? Would you stop? Would you laugh or cry?
I'm feeling down and bored. Non-serious answers are definitely welcomed.
also, do any of you use www.earthle.com ? do you think you will use it if you just found out about it?
the new cat has a fresh box of litter, food, water, and an open window for fresh air. how long should i keep him in there? how do i handle the introductions?
right now, the new cat is hissing at my kittens from the other side of the door. the little ones seem very edgy and suspicious.
i would really appreciate some advice. i've never been in this situation before.
What should we call our team this week?

Is your Mom? Tell me a story about her, then.
Do you like your soup rich and creamy or watery?
What's your favorite soup?
I am seriously craving some soup right now.
I really miss having a cat in my house. Will you give me a cat?
And because everyone likes doing these things, will you post a picture of your cat?
How do you feel about people who get rid of an older pet because they've gotten a newer pet?
Have you even been in either of these situations? Explain why you did what you did, if so... if you feel so inclined.
Yes, jumping on the pet bandwagon. Got something wrong with that?
(As a related aside: my cat attacks me, and only me. We're still keeping her with baby on the way. Unless she tries to attack baby. Then goodbyyyyyyye kitty.)
What (windows) computers do you like that are fairly portable with good battery life and can stand to contain my shit-load of music/photos/documents?

Probably a pretty dumb question for TQC but I thought somebody might know!

I was at the park on Friday with some friends and I thought somehow I may have gotten in contact with poison...I didn't touch anything but my mom said it can be in the air to. If so wouldn't my friends have the same symptoms? I was there Friday and this started in the afternoon on Sunday. It's literally ALL OVER my body like I said. We've checked for fleas and there are none. I had my new [as of April 21st this year] guinea pig in my room with his cage near my bed. My mom thinks there were mites on him [got him at Petco if that matters] and they got onto my bed from his cage. I rarely see him scratch though...
I have googled this and I come up with many things it could be but I'm still uncertain. Should I just see a doctor if it worsens? Any creams I can buy to get rid of these welts?
i just got my 3 random shirts from shirt.woot.com
Mine in comments.
what kind of cake (or cupcakes!!) should i get?
For the organized: What is your favorite way of keeping track of things that you need to do? Post-its? Lists? Writing it in your calendar/planner?
I do all three. I write lists on post-it's and stick them in my calendar so that I can move them from one week to the next if need be. For things that must be done on a specific day it gets written on that day and when I'm done with whatever it is I highlight it with whatever color highlighter I have closest to me. If you look at my old planners and flip through them they're a rainbow of color with nearly every page filled.
For the unorganized: How do you survive?
Preferably something I don't have to download (I'm using someone else's PC ...) and where the graphics aren't too painful.
What's your favorite MMORPG ?
--I love the Mad Hatter, because he is very silly. Also Aladdin & Jasmine!!
I don't know how to find her or what to do.
