Do they "ruin" a landscape any more or less than the average power station, in your opinion?

How would you feel about your SO going on the show?
What is this building's name, and where is it located? Also, how freaking awesome is it? I would say, pretty freaking awesome.
Speaking of buildings, would you like to live in a giant greenhouse? Maybe sleep in a hammock or tent and pretend you're camping all the time? Because I would.
My knee hurts. It started when I was having me some slumbers, and it would wake me up in the night. I figured, "rain's a-comin". Hurt the next day. Then it slowly started to go away. Today it came back with a RAAAAAGGGIIINNG vengeance.
I can't go up the stairs, and I have to take the subway daily, and I live in a 3rd floor walkup. It feels like it's a tendon in my knee and not quite arthritis.
My question to you, what is the best method of amputation?
If I start a fund, will you help me get one of those spidery wheelchairs that go up stairs?

If you, like me, can't think of a title/favorite, feel free to just share what you remember about a certain episode/s
I can't remember the exact plot/details but I recall one where there was just like this static or just weird nonsensical musical sound that turned out to be a message from aliens
Why do I hate reese cups?
Where did it originate from? Is it a literary reference, or something like that?
- What was the largest multi band music festival that you have ever attended?
- Did you discover any bands that you had previously not heard of?
For me Woodstock 99
I heard Sevendust for the first time and have been a fan ever since.
What does your bathroom soap smell like? Mine smells like vanilla... or, as B&BW puts it, "warm vanilla sugar".
I drink about 3 glasses of Mountain Dew every morning so I am able to function to drive to work. Probably not the best thing, eh? I blast my music also.
I wake up at 3:30-4am.
Do you own any TV Show box sets and if so, which?
Do you have anything special going on today?

Now, I'm not saying that you have to think your boobs are the best boobs ever, just, is your preferred *class* of boobs the same class that your boobs are in? Do you think that people with boobs similar to your own have the best boobs? Or do you find a different class of boob more aesthetically pleasing, and if so, do you wish your boobs were like that?
I'm also curious to see if sexual preference plays any part in this, but I want to hear from all the women, cause let's face it, who doesn't like boobs?
it's spelled weird, like nee-hih or ne-hai or something.

Also, apparently today is National Donut Day (http://theguide.latimes.com/profiles/15/lists/168360). Any plans to celebrate?
Girl 1: So, if you get a tan from the sun, it's because the sun is hot. Do you think you can get a tan or at least a sunburn if you sit in a really hot bath for a long time?
Girl 2: Maybe if you keep switching out the water once it starts to get cool, but I think you'd have to do it outside.
I shit you not.

Worst thing you can hear after sex with a new person?
Now at 24, it is obvious I need help with this because it's to the point where I can't even remember what I wore yesterday, nor am I able to concentrate on anything important like work or even playing with my children. I can't even believe I made it through college.
By far the worst part is forgetfulness - I forget everything important (like yesterday- I work at a newspaper and I forgot to publish our next day's paper before I went home), I forgot to drop my son off at school early the other day so he could go on his field trip and I'm on my 18th debit card and haven't had house keys to my own home in months...
It's really getting me down and I need help. I don't have a family doctor so how do I go about getting the help I need from a walk-in clinic...? I don't want to walk in and say, "I have ADHD and need drugs please."

2. How many of you initially added them to your FL, then got wise after?
3. You and your husband are thirty-somethings who co-own a skating rink. There is a teenage girl who is very needy and has a horrible home life. She thinks of you as her "parents." She is rather obsessive with the two of you and calls you and hangs up or leaves weird messages. She writes both of you notes telling you how much she loves you. You think she has a huge crush on your husband. You know she needs positive role models in her life but her creepiness is a bit much. (Yes, this is my situation.) What do you do?
Who caught you?

Oh TQC, why was I rejected when requesting to join on my new username?
Also, do you find it necessary to shower every day? (Meaning you think it's necessary not only for yourself, but also for others)
To make a concrete example, say that you were disabled somehow and eligible for social security disability payments. But you are married or with a partner who is not disabled, and is able to pay for healthcare/insurance/living expenses/etc.
Or say that due to income, you are eligible for food stamp benefits. However, you are employed at a family run grocery store and have virtually limitless access to free groceries - produce, meats, dairy, specialty products. You may not make much money, but there is never a lack of quality food available.
Would you take the benefits? Why or why not?

What did you post about on (or near) June 5th, 2006?
I posted about how some people at work had been fired (misuse of company property/information and one for telling a customer to fuck off), in the lead up to my department being made redundant. I was also planning a holiday.
Will you tell me when you feel your cutest/sexiest/hottest?
What makes you hot?
Will you post photographic evidence of said hotness?
Doing moderately intensive cardio workouts every day and eating a pretty bad diet (very few fruits/vegetables, almost entirely processed foods, too many calories - enough to gain weight but probably not enough to give you a heart attack)
Eating a very healthy diet but getting very little exercise (just standing at work and walking a mile or two here and there)
I pretty much have to choose between these two because working out makes me ravenously hungry for junk, but if I eat a healthy diet that allows me to lose weight I don't have enough energy to exercise enough.
1. Should I go to the restaurant supply store this weekend and get a gift certificate for her? Or would I be better off giving her cash?
2. If you have a sibling (or more than one), how much older or younger are you? There's an 11 year difference between me and my step-sister.
3. Besides eggs, what else do you slice with an egg slicer?
4. My brother-in-law put a Transformers poster up on one of the laundry closet doors (the inside, so you only see it when you open the doors). What should I put up on the other side: a Jurassic Park movie poster, a South Park movie poster, or a U2 concert poster? Or should I go buy one from Wal*Mart of Hannah Montana or something embarrassing like that?

P.S. Did you know that coffee and mint actually taste really great together?
Because I sure do. It's one thing to have a friends only journal, it's another thing to make someone write a paragraph explaining why they should be added. I ask because I've never seen this before and am a little mystified. Do people do it often?
It's supposed to rain and get really hot outside tonight and I presume the inside of the place is going to be really humid and hot also. However, I don't want to be mistaken for a ring girl, so I don't want to wear anything too skimpy.

"The video you uploaded was too large. Please shrink it, then upload the smaller version"
Any ideas on what I can do? It's happening on all sized videos and cannot find any answers on their website.
Or do you think they're total douches and wish they would just gtfo of your damn house?
It annoys me and amuses me at the same time. One of my best friends is like that. Like, her asshole ex wanted her to add him back to MSN and she asked me what I thought. I told her that it was a bad idea and then she stopped talking to me for about an hour (we had this conversation over IM).
When you make a mistake, do you apologize or pretend nothing happened?
Anyone know of any sites that can help?
How organised are you? How do you keep yourself on top of things?
I've since graduated, and am back home living with the family in a much larger house. I've gotten some of my stuff back, but my sisters are still holding onto a ton of my books and won't return them. I don't really have room for them -- my bookshelf is already overflowing, even without the massive stacks next to it -- but I figure the longer I wait, the less likely it is they'll give my books back.
Should I keep trying to get my books back now? Or should I wait the couple of years until I move out, and ask for them then?
Where can an unemployed college grad get more bookshelves for cheap?
edit: i should have clarified. this is for an interview. however, i'd totally show some cleavage if that gets me the job. because job hunting in the panhandle of florida sucks so hard.

Were these messages lost in cyberspace and I just got them now?
If not, how do you make and send 10 year old emails?
My boyfriend recently got hired at an autoparts store. He has gone in and done the drug test. I waited over 2 hours for him to fill out paperwork and such. Tomorrow is his first day. So in order to do this job he put in his two week's notice at his retail job at the mall. Today he gets a call from the retail store offering him a promotion to "key holder" (which apparently is a really low level of management?) if he stays. Now he wants to stay at his original job.
So TQC, is this wrong of him to do to the autoparts store? I mean I think he is already committed to them. He says he isn't committed because he hasn't actually worked yet.
So which is it? What would you do if you were in his situation?
And if you don't like that question: What is the perfect temperature? (I'd say 75 degrees!)
if you have done drugs how would you pass a hair follicle drug test?
Edit: Can you suggest to me a good place to buy (decently priced) bags? I like the mini-messenger kind, but my search is running up dry :[
Which (if any) TQC would you like to meet IRL?
How many of them do you think you really will meet?
Also, do you like apple juice?
Does your beauty routine for the day change when you know you are going to have to be out in the rain?
It's storming here right now and I have plans to go out for dinner tonight, but it isn't supposed to stop raining til tomorrow morning. This means I won't be spending nearly as much time on my hair, because I know it'll just get ruined anyway. >:o
Will you tell me about a time when you completely misread a situation and felt foolish/embarrassed/dumb/upset about it?
Its easier for me in person.
I'm 3/4 of the way to a masters and I do the same job (and make very little more money than) a high-school dropout. I think I need to start looking for a better job.
1) Anyone know any good schools off the top of their head that you think would accept me? I'm not exactly shootin for Cambridge or NYU...
--not against going to the UK or France (although, i can't really speak french yet...im taking classes)
--currently at Florida State University.
--will have my AA after next semester
--1950 on my SATs
2) Has anyone from the USA gone to school in a foreign country? How did you do it/ it work?
p.s. it got into the glass/screen through a small cut in the screen i'm guessing.
I took a new job where I will most likely be making more money than I am now. I also took it because it was right near a train station and at the time I thought I'd be able to minimize my commute. However, because of scheduling, taking the train from that station to/from school and work will be difficult. I have the following options:
A. Wake up at 5:30 AM, drive to the station by my work and catch a 7:02 train, get off 5 stations later, wait 5 minutes for the train that gets me to school in time for my 8:30 class and possibly pay extra. I can then take this train directly back from school to work after my 2:30 class.
B. Wake up at 6:30 AM, drive to a different station and catch a direct train to school in time for my 8:30 class. I can then take this train back to the station, and drive 25 minutes to my job.
Option B is what I've been doing for the past year, but I was commuting to my current job where I am making less money.
WHICH WOULD YOU PICK?
2. If so, what did you do afterwards?
3. What kind of animal was it?
4. Was it intentional or unintentional?
I can't stand "lie-bary" (as opposed to "library"), for one, or "albLum" as opposed to "album" (my mom does this all the time...)
2. Am I justified in being upset that my manager (but not my boss, she just has say in operations, not over us) shows up to work late, leaves early, and is gone for hours at a time during the day? I'm second on the food chain and get stuck with her leftover work. She goes shopping and books hair appts during the day as well. Every time I pass her desk she's on Facebook. Right now she is choosing paint colours on walmart.com.
And yes I am aware I am also at work right now posting to TQC lol
3. My college grad is Tuesday and it is a casual affair. BBQ and open bar afterwards. What should I be wearing? I was thinking a thin-strapped summery knee-length dress with heels?
We had a circle in our psychology class today and a lot of people were convinced that it doesn't exist. My best friend told me he loved me a few weeks ago. He's not the feely- emotional kind. And he is gay, so I know there wasn't anything else implied with him saying that. And I feel the exact same way towards him, everything is just really natural and sincere about our relationship.
Do you think love is only romantically or sexually founded?

So.... TQC I ask you
- What was some cool things you did at a sleepover type thing?
- We have a board game where we have to have other people guess our secrets, I'm planning on making some good secrets, not necessarily true, any suggestions? (The funnier and more ridiculous the better)
- What are some songs I can add to our playlist? I'm thinking, cheesey 80's stuff or 90's for the nostalgia part...Or anything else you recommend?
The post below this made me laugh. I understand the reasons for it, but I don't understand why guys idolize breasts so much too, and big ones at that. Why? They're two globs of f-a-t with nipples attach. Doesn't sound too good when put it like that, but they're just kind of like shapely man boobs.
i've been googling but second life keeps showing up and thats not what i want!
Using google images will you please share how you feel today?
What's for dinner?
This is how I feel.
How long should I study for the SAT (which is tomorrow) today?
Obama or McCain?
What is going to influence your vote?
Then, just now, I was looking at some pictures taken today of me standing directly under the noon sun and the shadows cast by the bumps on my face seemed to spell out today's date and time in Roman numerals! There was another date, but incomplete--for 2012, December something.
I am looking at my arm again and I'm thinking that I should really connect the dots with a magic marker, in case there's a coded message in there. But should I do it now, or wait a few more nights? And what if the message is in Italian? Can anyone here read Italian?
TQC, what should I do?!

there's a cage with a person inside of it being suspended over a cliff edge. the cage is set to a timer so that it will drop in a few short moments, giving you just enough time to save them. but suspended over a cliff not to far away is a cage full of, oh, say, monkeys. the monkeys are being held in a similarly difficult position. you may only save one party.
how many monkeys would have to be in the cage before you would save the monkeys instead of the human? how many monkey lives are worth aproxx. one human life?
I always leave the last bite of food on my plate.
I also go out of my way to step on crunchy leaves.
But, I'm not done dealing with assholes, yet. My landlord is an old, New York Italian shmuck. He's the biggest moron I've ever dealt with and has been considerably rude to me and my mother. No, this isn't about him, though. This is about his spawn. The son of Satan. Their company is a block away, so if I need something, I call their office. A few days ago, the son came by (Why? Duno. Supposedly to see things.) He was skeevy when he was here, but whatever. Then today, after the plumber fixed the sink that's been needed to be fixed for 3 months, I called their office to let them know he had left his caulk gun thing.
Here's the conversation after that:

We have a "Tattoos and Pool!" sign in front of one of the local pool halls. There's also a trailer park I drive by on my way home. The name of it is spelled, on the sign "Mountian View Trailor Park" It makes me laugh every time I drive by it.
2. My cat is a huge part of my life. We're together whenever I'm home. I'm moving from a ~1800 square foot house to a 520 square foot apartment in August. In our house, he lives with three other kitties (who I would not be willing to take with me due to behavioral issues,) and he hates being the only cat in the house. I would really like to take him with me, I can't imagine how much I'd miss him. There are two issues:
b) Is he going to be miserable in such a small space, after living in a decently large one? I could leave him with my parents for the five months I'll be living in the small apartment, but he's going to have to come with me someday, and I kind of don't see large apartments in my foreseeable future budget.
a) How traumatic will it be if I adopt a baby brother(probably an adult male from our local humane society--- once they have one, I'm calling tomorrow to see if they have any which aren't on their website yet) let them become acquainted, and then move them together? Is two months enough time for them to get comfortable?

When you are low on cash what are ways you save money?
How are you today?
Back story: I brought 2 purses at a event which had the proceeds going to charity. My friend previously went to this event and got bags there and raved about it. "It's amazing... real bags for really cheap, etc" So I didn't even SECOND think the purchases, etc. I spent a little over $1000 there. Long behold, a piece of hardware broke on one of my bags and I didn't think much of it... I'd just go to the store and ask them to send it in for a repair. Anyways, when I went to the store, they said my bag was fake.
So, I emailed the lady who I brought the bag from. Told her I went to the store to get it fixed (they said it was fake. etc). I also called her on her cell (I saved her business card) and left a message. She called me, we discussed, she agreed to refund the money when I send her the purses back (with insurance on the shipping). She told me her address (I google mapped it) and yeah.
Now, I have the receipt and all (I paid in cash)... and I just want my money back. She claims that the bag is real but is willing to refund me back the money. She'll send me a check. I am now worried that if I send her the 2 bags, she won't send me the check.
What should I do?
(I'm going to report her to the police.)
I found some things I like but I don't know what to wear with them.

I drank out of the wrong soda bottle whilst heavily intoxicated and ended up drinking a huge chug of this guy's dip spit. And it wasn't like fresh dip spit, it was like his universal "in the car" dip spit bottle that was half full and fermented from sitting in the sun. I was sick for three days and I still shudder and wretch a little bit when I think about it.
The Deadliest Catch.

I am moving soon! My soon-to-be roomies all have dogs. One has a german shepherd/lab mix, the other has a lab, and I have a pug. I want to get a bigger dog - a lab, or a german shepherd. What do you think I should get?
I already have the Love of My Life, my baby, Dwightum the Pug. I will just be doin' school, no real job, except for school. Yes, I can absolutely afford multiples!
Anyway, what do you think is the best bet? Another blessed pug, or a lab this time? I have had both my entire life, so I am a good owner. My cousin is also a vet, so free, and AMAZING, vet care! :)

Say you were talking to someone from another country and were asked to name three things that make your state/territory/province/etc great, what would yours be? Oh, and where are you from by the way?
1. Cook Out Burgers - The best fast food burgers on the planet! Take that In-N-Out!
2. The art and music scene of Chapel Hill. It's like SoHo but it doesn't smell like urine.
3. The crazy mix of 'burbs and country. Where else can you see someone raising chickens in their front yard within an eye shot of a Macy's?
Would you rather be skeptical of everything or be totally trusting in everything? You can not pick the middle, you have to pick one side of the other.
