1. So, if this nail polish is supposed to be dry (like a rock) in 60 seconds, how come I can still accidentally eff it up hours later (I thought this stuff was supposed to be me-proofed)?

2. What is your favorite kind of pen (or pencil, crayon, whatever)?

3. Swimming pool, lake, or beach?

Edited to delete the boring 4th question.

Why has my internet been so damn slow? For three days, it takes anywhere from 30 seconds to 5 MINUTES to load one page. I called Verizon 344305 times and they said it's not their fault. My modem is only a year old, my wireless router is newer than that. The problem is with all of the PCs, including the one the modem is hooked up to, but my laptop is the slowest.

What is wrong with my internet? FIX MY FUCKING INTERNET, TQC!

And I learned about this passage from the Bible while reading it over today. (Story research.);

Ezekiel 23:19-20
Yet she increased her prostitution, remembering the days of her youth when she engaged in prostitution in the land of Egypt. She lusted after their genitals – as large as those of donkeys, and their seminal emission was as strong as that of stallions.

Watch the birdie...

When you flip somebody off (AKA give them the finger, flip them the bird), what do you do with the rest of your fingers? Curl them up at the sides of the middle finger, bend them towards your palm, other?

Is your middle finger straight up and down, horizontal, or at a jaunty angle?

Do you smile big and fake, frown, mouth obscenities, or do anything else with your face that shows the victim your intents with that finger?

When is a double-handed bird necessary?

For those of you that have been to Cancun...

So my family and I are taking one of those fabulous all-inclusive trips to Cancun for a week, and I'm not terribly in to going clubbing and whatnot with my family and 16-year-old sister, so we're going to Xcaret, snorkling and maybe zip-lining somewhere.

1. What other sort of family things are there to do? It's okay if they're a little physically intensive or require a bus trip out of the resort area.

2. I know there's shopping in Cancun but it's sort of more geared towards designer and other expensive items. Is there anywhere nearby where we could find affordable handicrafts and local artwork?

Is Harry Potter set some time in the past?
While re-reading the Deathly Hallows, it mentions that his parents died in 1981, when Harry was about 1. If the books are meant to be running in real-time then this obviously doesn't work.

Help me decide how to spend my money TQC

Should I get:

1. An 80gb black iPod classic for $250.

2. An 8gb iPod Touch for $299.

The reason I ask is because I really like the Wi-Fi feature on the iTouch and I doubt I'll even need all 80gb for music/videos. Before anyone asks why don't I just wait to get the 3g iPhone well, I don't have AT&T and you can't jailbreak the phone for Verizon [the service I have]. My contract expires in September though so I might switch to AT&T then and get the iPhone but that is a long way away so it's not even a factor now. My current iPod is the 3rd generation one and it's broken so I need/want a new one ASAP.

Thanks! Hope everyone's having a good Father's Day.

Two Teal Deers and a quickie.

1. Someone dumped the discography of AC/DC on my hard-drive as a means of uploading their albums to their ipod. I don't mind a little bit of this stuff in moderation, but having listened to a few albums, they're all starting to sound the same to me. And they're taking up a lot of room. Which songs from AC/DC are crap and ought to go? Which ones should I keep?

2. So, I live with my sister, in a town about 9 hours drive from where we grew up and where her SO still lives. They've been together about 7 years, planning to live together and get married. She's supposed to be moving back home in a month, but I'm having suspicions that she might be having an affair with someone from work. She talks about this guy like she's got a crush on him, she's always comparing him to her SO, and she's spending every spare minute with him. He's a military guy with a wife and kids back in his home country. Should I confront her about this, or say nothing? What would you do?

3. Ugh, way too much study to do. How do you get yourself out of bed in the mornings when you don't feel like you've got much to look forward to?

This may have been asked, but what do you do to celebrate Father's Day when you are so estranged from your dad that he doesn't even register as a father figure anymore? I just called and wished him a happy day, but for what, really?

Inspired by an earlier post about PIs.

So the story is this: My mom was married before i was born, but she got divorced while pregnant with me. She had me, and a few years later she met my step dad. He adopted me and is now my legal dad. Until I was 15 i thought he was my real dad. There were suspicions but i could never ask anyone and i just went with it. But then when i was 15 they told me that he wasnt my real dad, and that my real dad was a bad guy and left it at that. I didnt even know his name or anything.

Fast forward to a couple months ago. I went a trip and came home and was showing and elderly aunt pictures. She says you look just like your dad, and then she leaves and comes back with pictures. Theres pictures of him and my mom at their wedding and their wedding invitation. I now knew what he looked like his name, and his parents names.

My parents asked me never to locate him. We havent even spoken about it since they told me 7 years ago. My aunt asked me not to tell my mom she gave me the pictures. I looked my dad up on the court website and saw some things he'd done, but nothing current.

So my question is: How do I go about finding him? I dont necessarily want to meet him, but maybe id like to meet my grandparents. Or at least know if he is alive or dead . I dont have a ton of money to work with, and im not sure of the protocol for this sort of thing.

thanks.

Last night, I asked TQC a question about beef jerky, and right after my SO came home with some. Today, at a parade, I was worried my kids were too hot and needed water, and a couple minutes later, a float went by and gave out bottle of water to everyone. If I think about someone for awhile, the phone will ring and it will be that person. Last week I was nixing for a coffee and had no change. When I got in my car a shiny Toonie ($2 coin for those who don't know Canadian monies) was staring up at me. If I am ever in a desperate situation or need something badly, it always works itself out.

More specifically, should I gesso the shoes before I paint them? Does this depend on the type of paint to be used? I need information on how important gessoing is in this process. I can't find anything through google, though I do remember my teacher from a recent oil painting class I took told a student that you can gesso anything if you wish to paint it, and the student asked about Vans shoes, and the teacher said yes. So I assume it's a good idea, but I can't find any information anywhere. Maybe you know?

Okay, so I think we've all read/heard the news that "rogue groups" and the "Axis of Evil" nations might well have been given "blueprints" for atomic weapons by Pakistan's main nuclear scientist. (If you haven't, read the CBS story here.) I have a few questions relating to this, and maybe we have people who have a greater understanding of the issue. What I want to know is this: what sort of practical implications would it have if these blueprints, as described in the news articles, were given to rogue states? What if they were given to "rogue groups"? How useful is the information to those who want to build weapons? It sounds like a scary story, but I'm not sure I understand the practical ramnifications of these documents and the story, so anyone with a clue would be appreciated.

I can hear my cats regurgitating their dry food and then slurping it back up from the floor. I thought only owls and cows and shit did that. They also puke on everything that is absorbent and light-colored, and their poop smells like rotting meat. They are not sick and/or dying. Should I have them for dinner instead of continuing to spend hundreds of dollars on them so that they may perpetuate their vile habits?

SO one of my friends just lost her Mother. I guess she was suffering a lot so they were pumping her with pain medication. She was hallucinating the last few hours of her life. The same thing happened to my Grandfather. He thought bees were flying out of the air vents to kill him. It was hard to watch. This brought on a conversation I just had with my boyfriend. I told him that if anything happens to me, I don't want to be drugged up. I would rather feel the pain than to be tripping my balls off before I die.

Credit Report

So after being a slacker about it for YEARS, I've decided to actually take a look at my credit report.

Experian & Equifax both asked me "security questions." All of the security questions for Equifax were accurate, but when I tried Experian, it told me that I opened a mortgage in August 2002 and asked me who the lender was, and what the terms were. I was a bit befuddled because I've never opened a mortgage (I was 19 years old in 2002). Although, around that same time my older sister DID steal my identity. So it seems logical that my sister may be the culprit. If so, what do I do? Do I need to seek out a credit counselor? Experian put a freeze on my credit report because I answered "no" to the security questions... I'm worried now!

Is there a way I can look at a detailed report to see if I DO have a mortgage out in my name?

So I'm soon to be visiting my crazy religious family from the South. My mom and dad say I should under no circumstances mention that I am atheist. She says they will already think I am weird (I'm a vegan), so she wouldn't want them to think I am also going to eternal damnation. Apparently the kids in the family recently put on a play in which there were a bunch of scientists who believed in Darwinism and were "evil" and my dad said it was seriously fucked up, but he didn't say anything.

How am I supposed to act around them? I'm super liberal, atheist (sort of agnostic, though, I guess), vegan, don't brush my hair, wear clothes from Goodwill, I live in Eugene, Oregon, etc. etc. basically I am for sure going to hell (despite fairly rigorously adhering to Christian morals by default). What do I do tqc?

ETA: I'm certainly not going to bring anything up, I mean what if I am asked 'why aren't you going to church?' I'm not even staying in their house; they are coming here. I will hold my tongue, but I'm wondering if they are outlandishly offensive towards gays/atheists/whoever if I should really just smile and nod?

1. Do movies ever scare the shit out of you?

2. I saw The Happening last night and adsklfja;fjas;f it fucking ruined me. How do I get over it? This is really important since there's a bottle of beer in my mom's car that I NEED but I can't bring myself to risk the dark and get it or whatever.

3. Why do so many movies (Cloverfield, The Happening, that global warming movie, so many) have disasters that take place in New York? Seriously, why New York?

Has someone ever told you that you don't have a 'real job'? Why did they think you didn't have a 'real job'?

Have you ever been told you are not a grown up until you can legally do everything there is a certain age for doing?
