A simple name is a perfectly acceptable answer, but explanations are appreciated, I'm sure.
Which style did you enjoy/like better, the one you posted or your current one? Why?
(Obviously, she could just pay the ticket. She is just wondering what would happen if she didn't)
ETA: Never mind, got it working. Thanks.
If so, who's bitch are you?
If not, who's your bitch?
Heterosexual males: Your SO is in the situation above, would you fertilize her egg?
(I'm going to call them, but I'm curious right now. And I can't call now, it's one in the morning. :P)
If they did what should it consist of edit and what should it be called?
will you share it with me?
Have you ever been the one to bully others?
You know how some people are just targets? Yea, that would be me.
What was the last really good choice that you made?
Also, has anyone else noticed that the TQC page is a little on the girly side?
What is your favorite meal? (Or what sounds most appetizing to you right now?)
(I'm hungry, obviously.)
Would you eat salad dressing (Italian) that had sat in a car trunk for twenty-four hours? It's all clumpy :(
Has anyone here ever gone to one before? If so, did you make purple there? (uh ohh)
2. If there was one particular song you could wish out of existence, what would it be?
3. Will you tell me about a song you really like that you think most people probably haven't heard before?
2. To people not from Australia: When was the last time you heard about Australia in the news?
3. Making all the walls in your room into dry erase board via white glossy paint; Good or Bad?

5. When cars all switch over to hydrogen fuel cells, will gas/petrol stations still be called that, or will people start calling them hydrogen stations?

I just had a particularly lovely conversation in which I told the Salmon that I found them on OtherkinDating.com.
What are your favorite video games of all time?
Do you still play it?
ETA: I saw someone make it by adding fresh lemons to water, and adding honey. I have never seen it made like that before..
Okay, so we got our gas bill for this month. Open it up and it's $393.10. Wtf? They combined two of our bills (we didn't get a April-May bill), which is weird enough, but the bill says we somehow managed to use up 207 therms in 30 days. Averaged out, that's only slightly less than we typically use in a month, PER DAY. So while our monthly bill is usually $40-50 (maybe $60 or so when we run the heat), June's bill wound up being a whopping $315.
I called them about how effin' crazy that was, and ended up speaking to three different people. All of them gave me pretty much the same answer: it's not their problem, and I owe them the money. I tried to explain that A) there is only one appliance in the household which uses gas (our water heater) B) If something were malfunctioning with the water heater, it would have continued on into the next month (May-June), which we were also charged for (only $13 worth of gas charges--8.4 therms used) C) it's absolutely not even POSSIBLE for the house to use up that much gas. We'd have to literally bust open a line... which would also, as I said, show during the next month's gas usage. The manager ended up talking down to me and implying that there was an appliance in the household that ran on gas, and maybe I just wasn't aware of it. I asked him if there was even the slightest chance that there was a mistake with this--maybe the meter was malfunctioning or something. Nope. Not even the tiniest chance. It's all my fault, and apparently we did use all that gas.
I wish I knew where that guy lived. I'd seriously blow up his effin' house. But what would you do? In all seriousness. They offered to let us set up a payment plan (3 payments of $104/month, on top of our $50 gas charges), and honestly, we would be absolutely incapable of making those payments, even if we wanted to. We'll be calling our landlord tomorrow to have someone come and check out the water heater, just in case, but obviously nothing will be found wrong with it. Only thing I can think of is to just... not pay it. Have them shut our gas off and get a debt collector after us. I can't think of any other options.
2. What's the scariest true crime book you've ever read?
Mine is "The Ultimate Evil" by Maury Terry that discusses, among other things, the real motive behind the Son of Sam killings.
Also, do you know any good steampunk comics besides Girl Genius in any language? Or adventurous and humorous pirate comics besides One Piece?
EDIT. We don't get single issues of American comic books here, so I'm mainly looking for things with collected volumes.
My three year old has also decided that today is a good day to be emo over the smallest things. Look at her funny and she runs away bawling her eyes out. Its great! My one year old is teething so he's super clingy and if I leave his sight for a second he flips out, too!
And its raining. And I don't have the money to take the bus anywhere (I don't have my license).
Can you guys try to cheer me up?
ETA: I just got a text from my husband telling me we are not going to go see Dark Knight when it opens because there's something going on for work that he doesn't have to attend but wants to anyway to make a good impression on his higher ups. Who wants to go to the movie with me and we can leave the
ETA2: I just found a bag of cold stone creamery flavored jelly beans. They're not mine. They belong to the husband. Should I eat them out of revenge for canceling our date night?
Can you recommend me a catchy song that I can play over this in my mind? PLEASE?!
1. In your opinion, what is something people do that is bizarre to stay attractive?
2. Do you want any work done? If so, what?
I'm sorry if I upset anyone with this question. I've just noticed this phenomenon in myself, and wonder if it's something sorta instinctual. You know, the need to bury your dead before it becomes a disease issue becoming genetically encoded. Although it would be difficult to prove that it was instinctual rather than cultural, in any event.
How should I self medicate myself today, TQC?
What is he trying to tell me?
PS. I am looking at medical billing in particular, but all info is apreciated!

2. Only the first verse, I don't think many people know it all.
Have your feelings been hurt at all in any of the posts?
What kind of soap/body wash do you use?
Barring that, they should be designed so that they stab anyone who clicks them more than once a minute.
This PSA brought to you by that annoying coworker who won't stop clicking their pen.
What are your workplace annoyances?
geh, will I have to move to someplace far away where everyone isn't married and doesn't have kids?
2)what IS a fuck mook?
3) My ps2 version of harvest moon a wonderful life won't load even after waiting for ten minutes. is it broken? what should I do with it?
I'm trying to create a flash slideshow where it will cycle through images (this I can do already). My real question is how do I have it so that when someone clicks on a particular roving image, a new browser window will open and take them to a specific url? Ie; every specific image will link to a new and different page.
Does anyone know anything online? I have spent a long time searching for tutorials online before I came to the community, so I wouldn't bug anyone with annoying questions.
If someone knows how to do this, I would appreciate the help greatly. My boss is demanding, but he doesn't know how to do this either. I'm actually really new and rather slow at this. I don't know Flash very well, so a step-by-step would be ideal.
Thank you for reading this, and if you have any suggestions, thank you in advance for them.
Do you prefer that people like you for your personality or for your looks?
What kind of compliments do you like the most?
(im not asking what you think is better. As in: o its better to have a good personality because looks don't last. But, what actually makes you smile to yourself later in the day when you remember the compliment?)
2) How did you distract yourself when things got really depressing and lonely?
3) My mom's pizza & sub shop opens next week. Will you come support us? What're you gonna order?

What are your opinions on these books?
"I can brush my teeth and pee at the same time."
What the fuck does that mean? Is is supposed to be funny or just ~*t0tAlLi r@nDuM*~?
If it's supposed to be funny, how? I don't get it, what is the joke?
I want to buy a stuffed bulldog but I can't find it on their website.
Where else could I buy a stuffed bulldog?
Has an S.O. ever give you a stuffed toy?
If yes, What was it?
I need to know if anyone has ever been prescribed Lexapro AND Paxil at the same time? The reason I ask is because they are in the same class of drug.
Also: what's you're opinion of the iPhone?
I think it's kindof cool but completely excessive.
I just got an email saying "You have added a new email address to your Paypal account." It was sent to my gmail address. Only after I opened it did I remember that I was registered for paypal with my yahoo address.

I would run like hell, but I don't understand why the fuck my friend is choosing to wait for him.
I thought a lot of people called them kneebows, but I'm starting to think I'm terribly incorrect.
I don't have a tape deck so I can't use the ones with the tape.
Females, do you think you could make yourself look like a guy and fool everyone?
Males, do you think you'd be able to tell if a female were pretending to be a guy?
What crazy things did you do to get by?
Did it make you more grateful for what you have?
In college I used to sell plasma. I'm so very glad I don't have to do that anymore.

He proceeded to put his hand ON MY FOREHEAD, close his eyes, and make a ridiculous humming noise. Then he said "There, you'll never smoke again." I just stared at him blankly until he walked away.
1. WTF was this guy thinking?
2. What would you have done in this situation?
3. Do you think he really cured me of my nicotine addiction?
4. How can I sanitize my precious forehead?
I am over 18, legally able to vote and registered. Going from Washington to California.
I have asked many people around me about it, none of them seem to know. I searched the internet and that didn't yield anything.
What's the best part about being an unemployed bum? What's the worst part (aside from the lack of money)?
How about your significant others? Same question, I mean.
2. How much is medium coffee by you? I've heard people complain about Starbucks being so expensive, and that a regular cup of coffee is 5 bucks, and I am very sure these are grossly exagerated. While some stuff is overpriced there, I pay $2.01 for a medium regular coffee, so where is this 5 dollar nonsense coming from?
3. Is the answer to number 2 dirty hippies?
4. What did you have for lunch?
Are you eating anything right now? What?
Are you looking forward to anything this summer?

I used to use The Sims, but it's such a pain in the butt to get the money to build.
Do you say "flippin'" in place of other, more colorful words?
Is "fuct" now an acceptable spelling for fucked?
You go to the doctor for some mysterious ache, and you're given a blood test. 3 hours later, the doctor tells you that you have only 6 hours to live...from the time the blood was taken, so you only have 3 hours of life left. He offers to give you a strong sedative that will knock you out, so you'll pass painlessly and effortlessly in your sleep. Otherwise, your heart will explode in no time. You have 3 hours. What do you do with your time left?
Good news! The test results were mixed up, and you're going to live! What do you do now?
You have a friend of the opposite sex (or the same sex if you're gay) who's kinda cute but has been in a serious relationship. One day, he or she tells you that they went to the doctor and were told they have 3 hours left to live. After all the sad exchanges, your friend says that he or she has always had a thing for you, and wonders if they could have sex with you in these final hours. Your SO is out of the city for family matters. What do you do?
You have a close friend who's a single mom with 3 kids. One day, she comes to you and tells you through tears that she has 3 hours to live, and she wants to make sure her kids are taken care of. Her mom's too irresponsible and everybody else can't be trusted, and she wants you to have her kids. "Do this for me, please. There's no one else I can trust". Do you agree to take her kids after she kicks off in 3 hours?
You have a friend who's also dying in 3 hours (damn, it must be like a plague or something!), and he's a medic. For whatever reason, he's a few thousand in debt, has no life insurance, and is worried about what his family will do to make ends meet. He asks you to help him remove a kidney, which he'll have sold on the black market for thousands. He can't reach back there, and no hospital will do something like this, so he's asking you to use the knife. He'll guide you, but you'll have to make the incisions yourself, and do the heavy lifting of organ removal (into the ice bucket). He's asking you to do this as a friend. Will you do it?
If you got news like this, what would you want saved?

4. I'll be staying at a friends house this weekend. I am bringing her a nice bottle of wine but want to get something else. What else should I bring as a thank you for hosting me gift? Married 20-something female. Likes cooking, gardening, she's from Germany.... umm... yeah.

Do you tell them you are dying?
Why would you NOT tell them?
What would you in those 2-3 months if you DID NOT tell them you were dying?
My flat mate doesn't think so. I do.
I want to get a dog. I've had them my whole life at home and I miss them now I'm at uni. I've thought long and hard about it and think I have the time to look after one. Do you think I should go for it?
You care about him/her/it, but you don't love them. Obviously, they are expecting an "I love you too" in return.
What do you do? Swallow your honesty and say what will make them happy? Say something else that might tip them off to the fact that you obviously don't share the depth of their feelings? Throw in some massive distraction ("Look! Over there! It's Superman!)? Make like a ninja and vanish?
Mine in comments.
If you're going to be useless to me in my new sheet quest, what is the best gift you've ever received? what's the worst?
What's the best gift you've ever given? Care to share the worst?
(For me, the best gift I've ever received was my car, the worst was a hideous piece of clothing that I returned immediately. The best gift I've ever given was a gift card to Nordstrom--I'm horrible at gift giving. The worst was the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack that I gave to a semi-friend of mine at a birthday party in 7th grade).
Painting, painting, painting. And my Etsy shop (http://www.steppie.etsy.com).
I swear, after I found out about Etsy and started painting again... it's all I ever do! I don't even hang out with people anymore - I'm just cooped up in my room painting canvases, ACEOs, tote bags, and anything else I can get my hands on.
I'm obsessed. Must. Get. Outside.
Can you actually get paid to do online surveys, or is it a scam?
Any other neat ways to make extra cash?
Aside from stealing/selling drugs/killing etc.

What happened and what did you do?
EDIT: Finally got a hold of them. The transaction actually took less than two minutes.
What do you do?
Back the fuck out and wait for the other toilet to be free, potentially embarassing the shitter because she's washing her hands and can see that you're not using her disgusting toilet? Or suck it up and go in, knowing that the next person who goes in after you is going to think that you have explosive diarrhoea?
2) What's your favorite theme park?
3) favorite ride there?
2. You travel to a part of your own country where they speak with a different accent than yours. While there, someone notices that you're obviously not a local, and asks you to say a something (to hear your accent better). What do you say?

So, TQC, who's fault is it?
edit: I will concede that it is partially my mum's fault for not checking pockets, but I still think it's mostly his fault. (I would like to note that he hasn't used the dirty clothes bucket in quite a while, which is why mum just picked up the clothes off the floor.)
2. Magazines or comics?
3. Silk or satin?
4. Apple juice or orange juice?
If a poster keeps changing their icons, does it take you longer to notice how much they've posted?

Did they rub your butt?
Where on your body do you need to be massaged the most right now? That's not meant to be dirty, but whatever.
Do you take the job and significant pay cut? Or do you wait for a good job to come along?
What if a year has gone by and no good job has materialized - now do you take the $8/hour job or just wait? You will probably be moving in a year when your fiance graduates.

What's something that has made you laugh today, TQC?
I searched my phone and found it says "GSM 850/1900-1800". I'm with Fido.
I have no clue about these things. Will this charm work with my phone?
You work in a daycare. Sucks, huh? Well, you do. What age kids do you work with? (only one)
You have a gaggle of 10-15 kids, and while standing in line to go outside, one punches another in the face. You have a sobbing child, a wide-eyed one, and the rest are standing around gawking. What do you do?
Lunch time! What food is served to the kids that you'll sneak a few bites/pieces of when they're not looking?
You're back from lunch. You have 1. A boy wanting to use the bathroom, 2. A girl wanting to use the bathroom, 3. Two kids tussling over a toy, 4. Two kids arguing over one wall socket for their Nintendo DS charger, 5. A kid with wet pants, 6. A kid wanting you to get art supplies out so they can do a craft. What order do you get these tasks accomplished in?
You're all out on the playground when suddenly little Timmy comes running to you sobbing, holding his arm limply. There is no phone outside, your director is in his office and you can't reach him by shouting, no coworkers are anywhere near you, you have no assistant, and this kid's got a broken arm or something close. What do you do?
Field trip! Too bad your bosses are cheap dicks and will only spend $5 a kid. Where do you go?
Story time! What book from your childhood do you not hesistate to read to the little fiends?
Everyone's gone home! You have to accomplish these tasks: 1. Clean the bathrooms 2. Sweep 3. Mop 4. Wash the tables 5. Take out the trash 6. Get things out for the next day. What order do you do these in?
I just did it:C
