Have you ever taken Trazodone?
If you did, was it for recreational or utilitarian purposes?
If utilitarian, did you take it as an antidepressant or a sleep aid?
What did your experience(s) feel like?
Did you ever feel like you were going to die?

(Because I've been taking it with no ill effect, and then for no good reason I had one horrible experience with it, and then another one.)

Did you read the Anne Rice Jesus book?

Vista Service pack

My Toshiba just downloaded Windows Vista's Service Pack 1-- I'll install it in the morning since I need to get some other tasks done.

Has anyone installed Service Pack 1? Anything I need to brace myself for in terms of bad surprises?

Why is it that eating can cause you to cough mucus back up, but it isn't coughed back up on its own?

EDIT: If you've been sick for a while and some mucus has gone down your throat, sometimes it doesn't come back on its own. I've found that after eating, I'll start coughing some of that mucus back up, getting it out of my system.

Quick internet question...

So the sound for anything I try to stream off the internet is off. But stuff like AIM, itunes, etc., are working, just not anything I get to online (youtube, tvlinks, any flash, etc). What can I do to fix this? We currently have a shitty wireless router that we're replacing.... would that be the problem? So apparently my firefox is being crappy, because I'm getting sound through internet explorer (blah). So new question... why is firefox going craptastic on me all of a sudden??

Also...
I just moved into a new house, only to discover that one of my housemates is an incredible baker! And she shares :)
Do you bake? I can't at all, I'm really envious of those who can.

I participated in my first DCI sanctioned Magic: The Gathering event tonight. I got my ass handed to me. Over and over again. I did not win a single game.

O Almighty Question_Club

Say this girls refers to you in such a manner, when referencing significant others:
"well, there's this boy and then on the other hand potentially there's this girl"- and you are this other potential girl. What would you make of it?

Thank you for your most welcome advice.

Summary- A girl refers to me- talking about significant others- as a potential. is this good or bad? And yes I want to date her, this being the whole reason why i have brought it upon your guidance.

Edited to be more readable.

Tipping?

I went to a local, mid-high quality restaurant, dressed up quite nicely with a female friend. We were seated in the lounge (no one asked for I.D. and there were other young people there) and since we're only 18, we didn't order alcohol.

During the dinner, our waitress never looked at me once, was clearly rushing us through our dinner (restaurant not crowded at all), handed us the bill without asking if we'd like coffee or dessert or anything (she asked the table next to us - the table drinking alcohol), and STILL wouldn't look at me when I paid the bill. She only addressed my friend. 

So is a a 13.4% tip on the meal bad? (PS: I'm Canadian - this isn't the U.S. where their tips are the wage, servers here must be paid a minimum of $8/hour before tips.) 

EDIT: I'm new to the whole "paying for meals at restaurants" thing, and so I'm still unsure of what's good vs. bad tips. I once sort-of tipped 50% on a meal because I wasn't sure. Honest question, I want to see what servers vs. non-servers think. So far, I like tipping and seeing my server so happy afterwards, but with situations like this, I'm not sure what's proper. Help guys!

I had a fever with a sore throat. For a while I was getting better, but my sore throat came back. I went to the doctor a week ago. She said it would be gone in 3 days. Well, it's been over a week, and my throat is still sore. No fever this time, the only thing wrong is my throat. It hurts really bad when I swallow. I'm wondering if I could have somehow got a second infection or something? Should I just go to the doctor again?

My work is having decade theme days in the next few weeks, so I'm researching late 50's and early 60's stuff. I've been watching Hairspray and I really like the beehives and the swing-style dresses.

I've been looking for a dress pattern similar to the one  Brittney Snow (Amber Von Tussle) is wearing just before they announce that there's an opening on the Corny Collins Show. I've tried to find a full picture of the dress, but the only thing I can find is from the waist up. Does anyone know where I might find a full length shot of that dress?

Where might I get a good 1960s swing-style dress pattern?

I've also been looking at beehive and bouffant hair styles, but I can't seem to find one that explains exactly how to 'backcomb'. I also have never heard of a rattail comb, as one website said I would need.  I heard my dad mention a ratting comb once, so that might be the same or a similar thing. So what is a rattail comb and where might I obtain one?

And the last questions: is my hair long enough to beehive, or am I going to have to try a different hairstyle? Okay, so my hair is too short. What other vintage hairstyle might I be able to do?

i have a terrible sore throat and i have to go to work in about an hour. my job requires a lot of talking which doesn't sound like fun right now.

what is the best thing to drink for a sore throat? tea wouldn't really work since i couldn't make it/heat it at work (though i might drink some before i go) and i've eaten a pint of ice cream between last night and this morning so a milkshake doesn't sound the best, either.

what do you use to sooth your sore throat?

honest question

If you get drunk purposely on a regular basis--why?
I really don't understand what's so fun about it, and I tend to believe that anything you have to be drunk to make yourself do, you probably shouldn't be doing in the first place. And remembering things the next day and not vomiting are fun too. Please explain to a girl who couldn't drink that much anymore if she wanted to (I have a fucked-up stomach).

At my ballroom dancing class (we're all in the same age group, late teens/early 20s) there's this guy. Who creeps me out. He creeped me out from the first time I saw him. He reminds me of Mr Collins from Pride and Prejudice. He'll do things like cutting across the dance floor in front of about five other guys to dance with me (or someone else on the other end of the room). He'll do things like, people are having a conversation, and he'll join in, that's fine, but he does it in such a weird way. Or someone will make a joke and he'll completely overreact to it. And I swear that he holds girls for dancing in completely the wrong place so he ends up holding the side of your breast when he catches you. None of the other guys have done this. I've tried saying 'um, can you hold me further down please?'. In the second time I ever saw him, we were dancing together and the teacher was like 'That's great everyone! You're really improving!' and he hugged me. I was caught off guard because he did it sideways. He did it again. Then the third time, a few weeks later, I finally told him off for it. He hasn't done that sort of thing for ages, but he does do things like, he dances with me twice that night and I'm like "I've already danced with you tonight!" and he's like "I know. Nice, isn't it." *shudder*. or he'll come up beside my guy friend and say "Boo."
Anyway. There's just something about him that's hugely creepy. If other guys had done or said this it wouldn't have been a huge problem.
Anyway. The question is!
Do you know anyone really creepy? Does this guy sound creepy to you? Why can't I figure out what it tangibly is that's creeping me out? What should I do about it?

So my apartment complex has a gym and to get the key you go to the office and check it out for 24 hours. A couple weeks ago i went to the office to check it out and the office lady didnt take down my name or anything because she was a little busy with other people. I think she might have recognized me because we just signed our lease about a month before.
Well the point is in our lease it says if you have the key out for more than 24 hours it is a $87 dollor fee for everyday you keep the key out.
Its been about 2 months and i havnt returned it yet.
Do you think i should return the key or keep it until my lease is up?
If she tries to get me to pay hundreds of dollars if i return it should i pay it? I think it would be unfair to make me pay if she never called or anything to let me know i need to bring it back.


I really want to go shopping but i have no one to go with. Should i just go by myself or call my mom?

For example, I'll start:

He was just a slip of a girly-boy from Communist East Berlin who underwent a sex change operation so he could marry his GI boyfriend and move to America. But when his husband leaves him (her?), a chance encounter with a childhood friend helps him realize he needs to return home to vanquish his evil uncle and take up his rightful place as king.

Where is that place?


I live in Las Vegas. I used to hate it here so bad. But then I thought about it, and it really isn't that bad. There are places that are better, but there's are tons of places that are worse. So I don't really complain about it that much anymore.
Pros: Relatively safe and non threatening place to be, the interesting culture and art/music scenes that are coming to prominence, the dark and somewhat interesting history, the uniqueness of the place.
Cons: The HEAT, Too many neighborhoods filled with houses that look the same, too many gated communities, the lack of appreciation and attention for the culture, the people, the lack of variety when it comes to things to do, too many casinos and how every movie theater is built inside a casino.

So, if I had a choice, I probably would live somewhere else.

And that place would probably be either Seattle, Portland or Atlanta.

Am I a horrible person for trying to convince my mum to divorce my dad? He's emotionally and verbally abusive, lazy, and has no respect for her. He's a dick to me and my brother, as well as her, no matter what she does for him. They've been married for 24 years and split up once, but he convinced her to come back.

She's afraid that he'll fuck with her if she tries to leave, and also that she wouldn't have the means to support herself, since she can't continue working on the gas wells that they work on together. I am completely behind her leaving him 100%, even going so far as to offer to buy a house with her/split an apartment, as well as helping her get on at where I work.

We can do it, I know we can, but I feel bad because I love my dad. I just dislike him immensely.

I'm baking a cake. This cake, to be specific. However, I'm having trouble with one of the directions.

What the hell does "Remove the cake from the oven, and invert the pan over a bottle" mean? Am I supposed to like, balance it on top of a wine bottle or something? I'm confused.

I have a movie that's converted to be played on my ipod, but I need to get it on the computer I have itunes set up on. I don't have a jump drive, and I've wasted about 5 CDs trying to burn it. I've zipped it, but it's still taking forever to send it to myself through gmail. Is there any other fast way to send/transfer large files?

My younger brother (16) is going to London, Paris, Lucerne, Rome, Sorrento, Pompeii, Barcelona, Athens, and a few others along the way I can't remember. He'll be hitting up the Lourve, Notre Dame Cathedral, Eiffel Tower, The Vatican, and most of the typical tourist attractions.

My parents are giving him a credit card. What do you want him to bring you back?

Making your own t-shirts

I want to make my own T-shirts. Not to sell to the public or anything, but just for myself. I know sites like Cafepress will make shirts, but they only do it in bulk, so I want to do it myself. Also, I don't really want to pay out the ass for this. What are some cool, non-shitty/cheap looking ways to make your own shirts with your own words / designs on them?

On the topic of Barney, what was your favorite rendition of the "I love you, you love me" song?
I remember singing to my brother and babysitter "we're best friends like friends should be, some people think we're very best friends, but others know we're lesbians... LIKE MY BROTHER!" Unaware at the time of what a lesbian is, thinking it was along the lines of jerk, or idiot.

Are there any body parts or things about the human body that freak you out or bother you?


Are there parts of your own body that you can't stand letting other people touch?



I have nothing for the first question, but I feel like puking if anyone touches my nipples or belly button.

If you see a picture on the internet, and you right click and save it, why does it disappear sometimes? Like in "my pictures" a few of them are now little dots instead of the picture. I know this is a dumbass question, but I don't get it.

weird shoes

So I just started running (why, I'm not sure) and was looking for some running shoes online.  That is where I came across FiveFingers.  These are the weirdest looking "shoes" I have ever seen, but the premise sounds really cool.  Anyone ever worn them?  Are the actually comfortable?  Or are they a load of crap?

A new study on meteorite has confirmed that certain raw material for DNA and RNA originates in space. This isn't to say that the same compounds might not have been produced on Earth but that still means that meteorites that pelted the Earth billions of years ago contained nucleobases that are essential to our existence.

Does anyone find this to be as absolutely fascinating as I do? It's like Christmas for the science nerd in me.

1. Is there a place where you consider to be your home? Is it where you grew up, where you live now (if different) or somewhere else? I feel so sad for my husband - he moved around a lot when he was younger, and now there isn't anywhere that he considers to be his home - he doesn't identify with any of the places where he lived =( Is there anyone else here like that? It seems strange to me.

2. Also, last night I dreamt I had a penis. I've heard that this isn't too uncommon for girls - but I've never heard of a guy dreaming they had a vagina. So, guys - have you ever dreamt that you had a vagina? Plz share details if you remember.

The Wisconsin state law says that if minors from 16-17 years of age are employed, they must have one full day off per week.

The ACA (American Camping Association) states that camp counselors must have one day off every two weeks.

The Wisconsin state law trumps the ACA regulations, correct?  Or is there an exception for summer camp jobs?

I'm at a car race. So far, I've smelled baby fart, car smoke, heavy cologne, and wet dog food. What do you think I will smell next?

How many car wrecks in total do you think I'll see? (So far, there has been 3.)

long questions for your answering

1. I lost my cat this week. He ran away last week, and after putting out calls and ads, I was told he was hit by a car and killed yesterday. The Humane Society called to say he matched my description and I went down to see it was him. I am so sad and miss Tuna so much, and I am wanting to adopt another cat. Should I go get one NOW, or wait until I'm not choosing a pet on impulse?

2. I have never tanned before and won 10 tans. I don;t know what goes on here. Do I tan naked? What do I bring? How long do I stay in? I am very pale, almost see-thru. Will I end up orange? How many tans will it take for me to notice?

3. Since TQC knows my husband better than me: What should I get him for our anniversary? He makes lots of money and buys everything he wants. The things he likes, I don't know the ~details~ of, and would end up getting the wrong one. This happens a lot. Besides, he has everything. He is definitely getting a watch, that he picked out, but I want a surprise too. Since he works long hours and does manual labour, I was thinking getting him a full-body professional massage. He has never had one. But I don't know! Any other ideas? (It's our 5th anniversary)

4. How much do you love beef jerky? I fucking love it.
