Should I get up and go the bars tonight?
Did you hear that Iowa has banned all smoking in businesses?
If I go to the bars should I keep my jeans & tshirt on or go "dress up" (as in a skirt and cute shirt)?

When was the last time you hurt yourself doing something really stupid?
Today I was breaking a broken piece of glass into a smaller piece so I could put it in a cardboard folder to get rid of and the tiny little shards got into my fingers. Little glass splinters. *hebejebies*

1.I can't sleep because I saw a law and order episode where this guy tortured people and it is freaking me out/making me sad. When was the last time you saw a scary tv episode/movie? What was it?
2. What is your favorite unofficial holiday? (example.. talk like a pirate day)
is it sad that the bacteria sock puppets on Good Eats are making me laugh?

What instant messaging program(s) do you use?
I use Trillian, and I was pissed to discover this morning that it ate all my saved away messages. Trillian users, has this ever happened to you?
How can I get my away messages back, or at the very least prevent them from all vanishing again?
If you're not interested in any of that, can you tell me one of your favorite quotes? Funny, deep, whatever, it doesn't matter.
Okay, so, TQC, what do you guys think of:
2) Psychism/psychic phenomena
4) alternative healthcare
While I find most of the stuff I've ever read on it to be absolutely stupid, I also see as a valid complaint that western culture focuses to much on the objective, 'scientific' truths, and that too many people claim to be 'questioning the system' while too readily accepting it. How do you feel about that divide in western and eastern thinking? And do any of you identify as Pagan? Do you think any of the above/anything that can't be objectively proven is actually possible or that too many people allow themselves to get carried away with wishful thinking?
Before you give me shit, I'm a practicing Jew with no particular investment in any of the above. As a narrative non fiction student, and a person who enjoys the company of eccentric people, I have an 'academic' interest in the occult/the large following that has developed around occult phenomena.
So TQC: What your favorite body soap? Liquid or bar? Which brand?
Mine is liquid Dial.
Is it a good sign when you want to hear about someone's day? Relationship wise, I mean.
1. My fiance swears up and down there's a wasp in the kitchen, and left me to take care of it so he could go to the bathroom for a marathon session before work (/tmi). However, I don't see where the wasp is supposed to be.
Where's the wasp? Did it make an escape when I opened the window? Or is it hiding, ready to strike? How do you get rid of evil insects in your home?
2. Weezer's "Pork and Beans" video is awesome possum, y/y?

got any tips for arranging pictures that you hang on a wall?
i've got tons... and they're sort of a mess, everywhere. i'm not sure if i should try to cluster them or what. i'm bad at pretty. i've got all different sizes, too... from 3x5 picture frames to a 4'x6' oil painting.
maybe there's a particularly good magazine or website that illustrates lots of pictures looking "together"?
1. when you're in a relationship with someone you hope to marry, are you always 100% sure about the relationship or are their times when your thoughts fumble a bit?

ETA: I copied the text randomly from a YouTube comment.
If you were fired from a place of business for stealing, would you return to said place of business as a customer?
My husband fired this girl two months ago after FINALLY catching her in the act, even though both he and his district manager knew it was her stealing in the first place. They had to wait until they had physical proof (in this case, video footage) before anything could be done. Anyway, she still shops at the store occasionally. While she wasn't BANNED from the store, I just think that's really ballsy.
How are you this morning?
Are any of you going into Boston tonight?

Dear peeps that live in Amurrika or understand their country's various independent holidays:
I have an online math homework assignment due tomorrow night at 11:45 pm. Ordinarily I would do it the night before the night it's due just to get it out of the way, but today's a holiday and I feel like I've earned this day off work. (If any of you know of my job you would agree in a heartbeat).
So TQC, do you do any real work on your nation's celebration day? Am I justified in just spending my Saturday morning and early afternoon doing this rather than today?
Am I the only American not going anywhere, just sitting at home and reveling in the idea that I don't have to even put on street clothes for once?
Everyone keeps telling me I should drink green tea. I've never had it before. What kind of green tea is good? Is it ok if I get it iced or does it have to be hot? What brand tastes good?

What do you think is in your stomach?
Have you ever been injured by fireworks? Or know anybody that has been?
So on the United States' Independence Day Senator Jesse Helms has died. A racist bigot dieing on the 4th of July-laughably ironic or a most fitting day for an honorable man to leave this world?
Do you ever worry that your (future) children will become serial killers, whores/pimps, or drug addicts?
Tomorrow my fiancé and I are going to a wedding of a couple we have known for 1 yr. We were surprised that they invited us to be honest. We met them in a mixed baseball league last summer and hung out with them a few times last yr, didn't see them over the winter, but have seen them most weekends since May. We're happy to go to their wedding, but not sure what to give them...obviously money is the easiest option as the wedding is tomorrow. I know they are paying for the wedding themselves and are also going on a honeymoon - so I'm sure cash would be appreciated. They live together so don't really need all the house stuff that is a traditional gift -- plus the bride has had lots of showers. So, what is the standard amount of cash to give someone who is not family and not a super-close friend?
1. What's your hangover cure?
- My boyfriend's cure is eating Marmite straight from the jar with a spoon.

Did you know Sprint has a GPS feature so you can track your phone?
Would this make it more likely for you and your SO to get Sprint so you can track each other?
Would you track random people if you could just for fun?
Where do you buy your bedding from?
1. Do you have to work on holidays (assuming you don't request off)?
2. What holidays do you need/prefer to have off from work?
I only care about having my birthday (Christmas Eve, I'll work the 25th, though) and New Year's Eve/Day off.
1. Do you like the current system of government, where you get a choice of a few people to elect, and then they make decisions that affect you (and others, and war, and all) for years?
2. Imagine another system where everyone had something like LJ, joined communities like TQC according to their interests, and just talked about or voted on the things they knew and cared about. (Bear in mind that there are always a few people who care about "strange" things like how sewers are designed, and that people naturally care about their trash collection, when it's not working) Would you prefer a system like that? Do you think it would work, or not work, and why?
3. How would YOU want your country to be run? Who would be able to vote, and on what? Who would make the decisions? What would happen without decisions? What would be good or bad about that method?
My date..thing just ditched me.
I'm already dressed and have makeup on. All of my friends are doing the family thing or aren't answering their phones. This is the first day I've had off in forever and the only day I'll have off for the next two weeks.
What should I do? =( Call work and see if they need me? They'll likely say no since they don't want to pay me double time. Go shopping by myself? Watch movies at home and sulk? Go watch fireworks alone?
Edit: I live thirty minutes one way from everything.
What should I eat?
a. turkey sandwich
b. spaghetti o's
c. soy sauce chicken
What are you doing for the 4th?
My friend are I were just discussing him being there for his girlfriend "through thick and thin", which raised the question, is "thick" the good part and "thin" the bad? I can't seem to find the origin anywhere. As I pointed out, thick hair is good and thin ice is bad. But then he noted that unintelligent people are "thick" and thin condoms are good! So now I don't know what to believe.
So TQC, which do you prefer? Thick or thin?
Have you ever eaten a teaspoon or so of pure cinnamon? What was your experience with it?
Edit: It dries up all the saliva in your mouth so you can't swallow it. I thought I was going to die and proceeded to throw up.
When the fire alarm goes off at your workplace does everyone immediately leave?
Our fire alarms just went off and there were people that didn't come out until the saw the fire trucks coming with their lights and sirens going.
is it just me, or is youtubes make suggestions as you type into the search bar feature not working at the moment. It cant be that i have accidently turned it off as it says that it is turned on, and it isnt giving me the regular autocomplete options that it would if the suggestion feature was off.
So is it not working, or is my computer just full of fail?
Do you like having your picture taken?
Do you know anything about the fires in California?
Are you affected by the fires?
I am from Big Sur (where there is a huge fire), and we just had a mandatory evacuation called on Wednesday. I am just curious as to how much this is being televised or informed to the public.

On another note...have you ever been to Cheers in Boston? How was it?
Who is your favorite fictional detective?
Is it just me, or are some celebrities putting on a little weight? Angelina Jolie and Gwen Stefani are putting on a little belly. They'd better watch it or people might think they're pregnant.
And Ashley Simpson needs to cut out the late-night meals. She's starting to pack on a little weight herself, and she'd better start running or something or people might think she's got a bun in the oven.
What are you favorite places for cool summer dresses? Preferably under 40 dollars? I keep falling in love with dresses that cost wayyy to much.
My name is Jessica Veryjewishname - nonjewishname. My question is, which part of the surname should I drop? Having a double barrelled name is extremely irritating and cumbersome - it never fits on official forms, for a start. So can anyone think of any downsides of changing my surname at my age (19) or has someone here already had experience of changing their surname and did they have any regrets? My only major concern is how my (Jewish) father might feel.
1. If a mod obnoxiously deletes a well-meaning comment of yours, and you decide it isn't worth hanging out there anymore and just quietly remove yourself from a community, without making a fuss, does it still count as a flounce?
2. Where did my son leave the tv remote this time?
3. Should I show up for drunken TQC bowling with my son? We don't have anything else to do. He's only 11, so I don't know if I'll be able to get him drunk that early in the day.
4. Why don't we do it in the road?

What's your favorite brand of hot sauce? Or are you a wimp?
My mom's birthday is this Sunday, and I'd like to cook her something. She'll be out of the house until midday Sunday - she's gone to Alabama to visit her mom, with my little sister - and so I'm here with my dad. What's something nice I can cook for her that doesn't take too much prep or insane amounts of work or money? I'm a decent chef but my skill lies in baking mostly.
i've never had any ear problems before, but for awhile now, i've been having trouble with my right ear.
for years, i've cleaned by ears with q-tips about once a week (i know..so bad for you blahblah), but i never experienced bad side effects or anything. i'm not sure if this is related to my previous q-tip use or not (since it's only in one ear and not both), but the inside of my right ear gets really itchy. the consistency of the wax is like liquid almost. it's not thicker, sticky & wax-like. also, my ear keeps popping on and off for hours sometimes.
i have NO idea why this started happening, but it's seriously become a huge pain in the ass. i don't want to clean out the extremely itchy wax with q-tips in case that was the cause of the problem in the first place, so sometimes i'll just wipe my ear with a paper towel or something. but it doesn't relieve the itch. the MOST annoying part is the ear popping. i can't seem to get rid of it! i'll chew gum, but that only helps for so long.
has anyone experienced something like this before? any guesses as to what it might be?

I'm looking online for movie show times and it says that there are regular showings of Wall-E and digital showings. They're making a kerfuffle about the last digital ones being at a certain time. What's the difference between digital and normal, and is it worth it to try and make it to a digital showing?
I have 200 sq ft in the back yard that I had originally intended to be a lawn, because lying in the grass on a warm, sunny day is one of the best things ever. However, the grass I planted turned out to be a non-summer variety (perennial rye) and the replacement seed (Bermuda) isn't taking. I'm thinking the land could be put to better use as a fruit/veggie garden.
1. Should I till up the remains of the lawn and convert it to a garden?
1a. What would be some good things to plant on a 20x10 patch, keeping in mind that I live in the middle of the desert?
What is your favorite holiday?
What is the most overrated holiday?
Hey Manhattanite TQC! What restaurants on the lower East Side (by Houston St. or in the area) would you recommend? I'm looking for something offbeat and fun, but with really good food (like Rice to Riches or Peanut Butter & Co.). I'll be in teh city on Tuesday, going to see a movie at the Sunshine Cinema. Any good places around there? I'm open to any kind of cuisine except Indian. Thanks in advance!

Does anyone know how to cite sources in footnote form?
I know how to put the number and then the source down at the bottom, but if you are using the same source for different paragraphs, do you just put the number at the end of the last paragraph? Or do you have to do it at the end of each one?
I'm so confused...
What are you determined to do?
i'm at my friends 4th of july party...

I'm the only sober one here.
for all you small-town folk, what are some of the most redneck things you have ever done/still do? are you ashamed?
1. i used to go "gopher snagging" with my brother. they weren't gophers... they were actually prairie dogs. we would make a loop with a rope and put it around a hole we saw a prairie dog go down and then lie down and wait. when it's little head would stick up, we'd pull the rope and instantly have a prairie dog on a leash and we'd walk it home with hopes of keeping it as a pet.
2. at my last family reunion (like many family reunions), we all drank in the front yard, played norwegian golf, and listened to johnny cash. even granny joined in (she's 80)
3. i am a pretty good shot with a rifle, shooting at clay pigeons (i'm too big of a puss to actually kill anything).
4. i went to school on a snowmobile or 4-wheeler several times.

Suppose you are going to an outdoor indierock concert with your significant other, in a venue where you pay for a spot on a lawn. It's in the evening on July 11th, and the forecast as of now says isolated t-storms, with a 30% chance of precipitation. You're planning to surprise him/her with a semi-romantic dinner-picnic type deal.

If you wouldn't; why?
What does an American accent sound like?
I use surfthechannel.com to watch tv and movies online. Sometimes, the sound will be alittle off (not in sync with the movement). Is this because it loaded weird, or was it uploaded to the site that way?
Say you were in a fairly long relationship with your s/o and you had consummated it sexually long ago, but one day they decided they wanted to hold off until marriage due to some more fervent religious beliefs.

Would you be surprised if one of your friends, family members, or coworkers submitted you for What Not To Wear?
One morning last week, a black and white cat showed up at my screen door and just sat there staring at me. I fed her tuna. It was obviously a stray or a lost cat (I've already looked in the newspaper and craigslist for anybody fitting her description but no luck. It doesn't belong to any of my neighbors.)
Everyday, she comes by in the mornings, waits at my door, then I give her canned tuna or salmon. She won't let near her, let alone pet her. I've found she likes sitting at the door to look at whatever I'm doing.
So, I've always wanted a black and white cat. My parents are not too fond of most cats. I already have 6 pets of my own and already've passed the '2-pet limit'
1. At what point does the cat become mine?
2. How can you tell if a cat is feral, not just anti-social to humans?
3. What cat food is best? I'm planning to buy a small bag tomorrow.
4. Is Mondavi a decent name for a cat? If not, suggest a name will you?
5. Have you ever adopted a stray cat/dog/other pet off the street?
At my local fireworks show, they played Jimi Hendrix's recording of "The Star Spangled Banner".
Half the people in attendance stood up.
Seeing as only half the recording is recognizable as the national anthem, were they correct in doing so, and was my family and I wrong in just kicking back and enjoying the noise? Or were they just a bit overzealous in their patriotism?
Non-serious answers gleefully anticipated, but if you know what the protocol is, let me know.
