Dear Doc TQC,
I need your wisdom and stuff.

My boyfriend is having problems with his back. His spine is twisting, and it's basically pulling his left shoulder muscle apart. I don't know if it's because of his scoliosis or what, but it's causing him major pain.

Is there a name for this? Or is just the scoli?

Have you dealt with this? Or know anyone who has?

If you have, what did you do to help?

Let's say Obama wins in November and becomes our new president. Miraculously, somehow, he resolves the Iraq problem, spearheads the search and discovery of an alternate fuel source, and fixes not only Medicare but Social Security. He's like the best president ever. However, in his 3rd year, he's caught by the press in bed with a man. He was cheating on his wife to have gay sex!!

So, he's like a wonderful president, but had some exploratory pipelaying with another man. What are his chances of being re-elected? Good or bad?

why is their fruit SO much better than fruit bought at the grocery store? is it because most of those fruit-sellers are selling illegal fruit?

cats

My aunt and cousins are coming to visit tomorrow and they will be here for about 6 hours. My cat, Biggsey Mammal, does not enjoy when they visit. As soon as they walk through the door he hides under the couch. Whenever they come I leave the door to my bedroom open, and put some food and water in there for him, but he seems to prefer the couch. I don't like him spending his whole day terrified under the couch.

What would be the best way to handle this? I have another non-scared cat if it matters.

Also, I've been looking around and I've found several cat calming products, have you ever used one? Which one? How did it work?

So remember when we had the epic post in TQC and got 5007 comments on one post?

Help!

Backstory: about a year ago, a stray cat started frequenting our backyard. We started feeding her, named her Lillian and she actually became quite friendly with us. Then she got pregnant and had four kittens. We found homes for 3 of them and kept one with us, named him Squints. Later, we took them to a non-profit organization called Alley Cat Guardians, an organization that spays and neuters strays as well as gets them their shots. They are entirely volunteer-run, only operate out of a local vet's office one Saturday a month and so I'm not sure how long it will be before they can get back to me. We received no documentation of any of it: getting fixed or getting their shots. Since then, both cats have become ours, spend most of their time indoors and even sleep with us.

Today, we are moving into an apartment. Tomorrow is our last day we can be in this house. The apartment management called us this morning, saying "Oops, forgot to tell you, we need their papers with their license numbers and proof of spay/neuter and shots!" We NEED to move today!

While I wait for phone calls back, help me relax a little:

1.) What is the process like for licensing your cat? How long does it take to process?
2.) Do you think I'll have to pay to get their shots again? How much to do this?
3.) What should I do?!

I'll change the price to $200,000 in the question below. Ignore the 100k

Poll #1212143 Movie hypothetical

Say you wrote a screenplay. You put a lot of work into it, and it's dear to your heart. It's about a battered wife, who's been given the business by her abusive husband, bullying boss and shrewish mother. In a surprise twist, she sells her soul to the Devil and extracts revenge, Carrie-style. It's witty, humorous and fun, and quite a dark comedy. You put it through the right channels and no one bites at it, but after a while, one director does. "I'd like to film it immediately. I'll pay you $100,000 for your script. I get full casting control. I'm picturing Tori Spelling as the wife, Keanu Reeves as the husband, Tony Danza as the Devil, Fran Drescher as the mother, and Sylvester Stallone as her boss. Just sign this release form and it'll become my screenplay, to edit and change any way I want. I'm thinking of changing it from a comedy to an action movie with lots of explosions". Do you give away your screenplay?

Yes. It's going to be horribly, horribly mutilated, but 100k will help satisfy me

No. I refuse to compromise my creative integrity so much. Tori effing Spelling? Danza as the Devil? WTF? No way, sir.

I'm looking for some old Victorian-esque or Industrial Revolution-ish (I'm not even sure if it is from that era, but the illustration style reminds me of that) prints or illustrations, where there is fantastical, stage-like science-fiction imagery. The same type of style and imagery that Georges Méliès used in A Trip To The Moon.

The Smashing Pumpkins also used it for their Melon Collie and the Infinite Sadness album, as well as their Tonight Tonight video.

Terry Gilliam also uses it in The Adventures of Baron Munchausen and much of his other works and animation. And I've noticed that the Little Nemo comic also has the same type of fantastical imagery in it.

Does anyone know if there is there a certain term or name for this kind of style?
Also, does anyone know of any websites that might have an archive of images like this?

Thanks :)

Why do you build me up...

So, TQC, my husband took today off to go test for an awesome job with excellent benefits and great pay. (Remember my insurance post a while back? This would solve that.) Well, he was dismissed before the interview process, and was told it was because he didn't pass the testing phase. So, he comes home completely crushed, feeling like a complete failure as a provider/father/etc. Then, after about half an hour of "I'm so proud of you for trying" and "Who needs those assholes, anyway?" we get a phone call. Apparently, he was put on the wrong list. He did pass the test and they would like to interview him as soon as he can get there. A friend of ours who also works there says that if you get to the interview phase, you've pretty much got the job. I'm trying really hard not to count my chickens, but damn...

1. Tall, preferably 6' or taller, chunky or built, light skin, light eyes and medium to long dark hair.

2. Faithfulness, trustworthyness, family values, christian, openminded, adventurous and goal oriented.

3. I am! I diet on weight watchers, its honestly the best system out there(for me at least). You can eat anything you want, just in moderation! I lost fifty pounds the first time I tried it, the problem with me was that I got too comfortable with my new weight, got off the diet and gained everything and more back! This time Im not gonna let it happen again :)

I hate when people who think they're open minded say things like OMG REPUBLICANS HATE THE GAYS and LOLOL REPUBLICANS THINK ONLY THEY CAN SAVE THE AMERICAN FAMILY FROM TEH GHEY LOLOL. I'd have those sorts of people know that they are the ones being closed-minded and idiotic. I'm gay, my mother is a republican, and she supports me fully. And that's just one example. 90% of the republicans I know are for gay rights.

Flowers/plant advice :-)

So, as a few of you might remember, my little brother was diagnosed with psychotic depression a little over a year ago. He's getting help, but doesn't seem to be responding to much. We're currently in the process of moving houses (claiming bankruptcy because of medical bills, mainly). Our new house has a HUGE backyard. Thing is, the old renters didn't take care of it, so it's a total mess... covered in weeds, all flowers are dead, etc.

I know he has an interest in plants- pretty much the only thing he's ever had an interest in. So I'm thinking that me and him could redo the backyard. My Dad's already planning to put grass in, so no need to worry about that. The backyard used to be lined with flowers, and so I have the areas picked out that are fine to plant in. Pretty much the whole backyard gets sunlight. We live in the SF Bay Area (San Bruno, to be exact), so it rarely gets very hot, and is often foggy/raining.


Basically, I'm asking what plants/flowers/whatev would be good for this. I don't want anything too hard to take care of, and would love a wide variety of plants. Any suggestions?


EDIT: We also have 2 dogs and 1 cat. Nothing that can harm them, plz :-)

Happy Hardcore

I've got a bunch of random mp3s in my collection that are left over from an ex, so I don't know what all of them are. One day one of his old happy hardcore songs came on; it was your typical hard and fast beat and sped up 'chipmunk' vocals that you couldn't actually understand.

I was in a crappy mood at the time and found it cheered me up tremendously; so I thought, hey, let's buy some more. I looked around for a mix collection and found Happy Hardcore Top 100. Except I got it home, excitedly put it on, and... it's not bad music, but it's not what I was expecting. Pretty mediocre beats and not a single song with the hyper-sped-up vocals. Songs like Prodigy's Outer Space; good, but not at all like the original song that I was after.

Does anyone who knows more than me know what that original song might have been? It was in a shuffle list and I can't for the life of me find the original mp3 again to check the tags. From memory though, it was unnamed anyway.

I feel like this could have been any number of bands, but if it's as prominent as I was led to believe, why is there not a single one on this so-called 'top hundred'?

Can anyone recommend some good CDs that are that kind of happy hardcore? Compilation CDs are especially welcome as I like to get a range, but as long as it's that sort of music I'd love artist reccomendations as well.

Anyone else have a cat like this?

We do.
Except our Tipsy's tremors seem more violent. (Her name was Coco until she became afflicted with CH (Cerebellar Hypoplasia), then we changed her name. Shortly after the name change, we took her to the vet and he thought she has CH. We think our dog shook her up one night while we were sleeping, so this wasn't something she was born with.)
My brother thinks we should "put her out of her misery" but I say she eats, sleeps, poops (eta in the box), and drinks...and gets around alright(albeit rather clumsily/comically) and other than her having cerebellar hypoplasia, she's a normal cat.

Gas Stuff

I'm confused about something. I live in NJ if that pertains to this at all...

Today, Raceway charged $3.95/gl for unleaded gas if you paid with credit, but $3.85/gl if you paid with cash. Then, as I drove down the road further, Exxon was selling unleaded for $3.95/gl and had a huge sign that said "Unleaded: same price, cash or credit!"

Why do some gas stations charge a different amount for unleaded if you pay cash versus paying credit? I'm assuming this would be some kind of benefit for those paying with cash, but then the Exxon sign threw me off. Why do they need a sign saying it's the same price, regardless of cash or credit, if it doesn't help them?

a) What can I include in the hamper?
Said people are vegans (in case you were going to suggest... I don't know, a pig :S ) and on the environmentally friendly side.

b) Any ideas besides a hamper?

Edit: I could probably sew some basic things, but I have no ideas of what one might need or want that I could sew :S

Dear TQC, have you ever or are you now taking summer classes for college?

My biology class is starting on Monday. It runs from 2pm to 7pm Monday - Wednesday, and I'm taking it at a state school. I go to a private college during the year, so this'll be my first time at this particular school - Rhode Island College - and I'm super excited because my summer has been totally boring otherwise. I'm looking forward to the dissections.

So, I just got home from walking Liberty, my puppy. And on the way home we come across two guys who were threatening to kill each other. I think they were serious. It scared the fuck out of me!
1. When was the last time you were scared? What caused it?

When I get scared I get the hiccups. Needless to say I have the hiccups.
2. How does one get rid of hiccups without killing themselves or sucking dick?

3. Its Friday night, what are your plans?

My SO and I were just talking about our friends who have been together for 6 years and still aren't married. The phrase "shit or get off the pot" came up and it made me laugh hysterically for about ten minutes. I guess I just haven't heard anyone say it in a long time.

What's the last thing that made you laugh for way too long for no real reason?

Part deux : Les faux de "dry clean"

Apparently my evening went swell... I stopped by 2 Crappy Tires, a Home Dump, a Sears, The Bay, 2 Hellers, 1 Linen n Ticks, and lastly: a Wal-Fart and NONE of them sell "Dryel".

So here's part deux: I was thinking ( i believe it's a good idea..or maybe not, who knows?) - Febreeze my garments, then throw it in the dryer on "air dry/low setting" with a damp white hand towel and let it run for 20-30 minutes?

Do you think that's a good idea or bad idea?

I have phlegm in my throat, to the point that it makes me really uncomfortable, and makes it difficult to breathe.

I am incapable of doing that gross thing where you make a weird noise and it comes up and you spit it out. I tried yesterday and all i did was barf.

So, how the hell do i clear it up, without regurgitating?

Think how many people have ever come and gone; not just people you have known but the world round.

Then take that number and think of the people that have made a name for themselves.

Cut that by those that did it in the name of h
