Watchmen

What do you think of the Watchmen trailer? Specify whether or not you've read the graphic novel when you answer (since that definitely influences one's opinion on such things).

My answer: I think the trailer looks amazing, and I've read the graphic novel (it's one of my very favorites, in fact). The movie seems like it's probably going to be way better than I was expecting. But I still have doubts about the story's intricate format translating well to film. I fear that the story's heart might get lost under a bit too much badassery. But I am generally optimistic.

If you are at home by yourself, and you are positive that you will be for a while, do you still close the door when you use the, *ahem,* facilities?

I do. I close and lock it every time. I don't know why.

Why are there so many questions about fat and coffee here?

Do you walk around your house naked? What percentage of your time do you think you're naked? Who lives with you?

edit (I always leave off my own answers): ???. Yes. Maybe 30-40% at home because I avoid getting dressed as long as possible after I shower, and sleep nekkid. Husband.

When you get a food craving or yearning or just a taste for something specific, can you satisfy it with a substitution or will only that one item do?

I can't stop thinking about cannoli now (THANKS sleepy_tears7), and the closest thing I have is ice cream :(

What do I need to pack/prepare for the Six Flags trip tomorrow?

Edit: Did you know that when you freeze pepperoni slices, they really don't change texture? That's pretty scary, y?

IDK, it makes perfect sense to me.

Can anyone explain to me how doing too good a job at work is worth getting chewed out over?

Or, can you explain how the same guy explained to company reps just days before that I was "the best driver in the company?"

Does this make any sense, or am I mildly retarded?

What are your biggest pet peeves when you drive?

Mine are people who don't signal, and people who go the speed limit (or below!?!?) in the left lane on the highway. (In my perfect [clearly imaginary] world, left lane means you better be going at least 10mph over said speed limit if you are driving in it!)

(*edited for redundancy. d'oh.)

EDIT #2: When drivers follow people in a parking lot to their spots for more than 30 seconds. When you follow me from the door of the store all the way to my car and wait for me to leave, I'm sorry, but that IS a problem and I WILL take my sweet ass time leaving my parking spot.

EDIT #3: Who the fuck actually needs a *minimum speed*?!

JESUS CAMP IRL

would it be bad to go to an Evangelical Revelation and Healing Retreat just for the lolz?

have you ever been to such a retreat? what about bible study camp? are they like the documentary Jesus Camp? what can be expected to happen at a retreat?

at a bus stop tonight, my friend and i were personally invited to attend one for free in toronto in august (everything but food is covered!). we are seriously considering this offer because we have nothing better to do this summer. it's a one day thing (august 8th, 8pm to dawn) and i can't really see anything terrible happening other than them banishing us or something. we are not religious people at all and we have no interest being saved, but we're still intrigued. should we go, y/n?

serious question

Could someone give me some advice? I'm going to move out (first time, obvs) with who will be my husband next May and I'm unsure if I need to improve my credit history/score. Same with him.

Basically, I'm only paying a student loan (have been for the past 2 years, has never been late). Don't have any credit cards.

He isn't paying off anything. No credit card history.

What I'm wondering is if we both get credit cards now, will it effect our credit score positively by the time we move out? Should we bother getting credit cards at all? Any other tips?

I know nothing about this and google hasn't really helped out. could use some real advice.

I like the events thing. I don't know if that was part of the page before but now that I've discovered it, it's pretty cool. Oh and I like how it says "now listening" under your friends who are listening at the time. I do not like how the Shoutbox (which I never liked in the first place) is all Facebook wall style now.

movies

What movies have you seen more than once (in the theater) this year?
The Dark Knight and Wall-E

What movies do you think are the best of 2008 so far?
The Dark Knight, Wall-E in terms of cinematic greatness + entertainment. As for just plain entertainment, I liked Hell Boy. I'm sure Iron Man would be on the list but I haven't seen it yet.

What movies did you hate that you saw in the theater this year?
Surprisingly, nothing yet.

What movies are you excited about?

getting rid of hair.

i usually shave my legs which aren't a big deal because they don't grow back as fast. but my underarms and my bikini line grow back ridiculously fast. i can never seem to get rid of the stubble (it still shows through after i shave). i just don't want to be embarrassed by little stubble marks whenever i wear anything sleeveless or i'm in a bathing suit. so i'm wondering has veet or nair worked for anyone? do you recommend it?

thank you! (:

/edit: also i prefer not to wax, i've done salon waxing on my underarms, and it was just too painful/it bled. :(

I'm going to take my father to see Wall-E for his birthday. I've never seen this movie.

A) It's not scary, is it?
B) Are there any blatently sexual scenes? That could be uncomfortable
C) Is there much profanity? My dad doesn't like that
D) I know we were just talking about this, but I already forgot. Is this the movie with Heath Ledger in it? I forget. They should have at least promoted his last film a little more, don't you think? I don't think I saw any ads for his movie

Random acts of kindness....

So the son and I stopped at the local McD's to get breakfast this morning. We opted for the drive thru.....

So we order...and when we get to the window to pay, the cashier told me to put my debit card away. I asked her why and she said the guy in front of me paid for our food.

I was kind of surprised. I've never been the recipient of a random act of kindness....(on the suck side they left out part of my order.. grrr)

Anyway...

So I am considering going on an exchange project through my university. I live in New Zealand so ideally I'd like to go somewhere big and overwhelming. I'd also like to go somewhere that speaks English (because if I can't study well in English I have NO chance studying in Chinese or Swedish). So that narrows it down to Canada, America or England. I'm gona give England a miss because I am travelling there with friends.

So this is basically what I have a choice of:

Canada: Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Novia Scotia

America: Montana, Purdue, NY, Rhode Island, Cincinatti, New Mexico, Washington, California or Virginia Tech.


So TQC: Please help! Where do you suggest I go? Do you live in any of these places? Are they cool?

Wall-E Wrap-Up. Not one useful question in the bunch

1) How many of you wanted a pet cockroach after seeing the movie?
2) Would you be willing to live in a house made from blocks of compressed cans if you got a huge tax deduction for the next 10 years? The cost of the house would be cheap, and obviously, the resale value of the house would be minimal
3) In the movie, shortly after Wall-E touches Eve, she gets the plant and puts it inside her. She now has a life growing inside her. Is this a blunt, subliminal message by the conservatives that meeting strange, blue-collar men and going back to their place afterwards leads to pregnancy?
4) Sigourney Weaver was the voice of the ship. Do you think that a lesser actress would have totally fucked up the highly-crucial role? Or do all space sagas have to employ Weaver in some capacity, after a lingering agreement after Alien 3?
5) Eve giggled a lot. Do you think all machines giggle? Like, when you trip over something in the kitchen and land on your ass, does the toaster and microwave stifle a big bellyroar? Or, if you fart in your car, is your car laughing at you?

Is there anything that others may consider strange about the relationship between you and your best friend?


I can't call her by her name. I just can't. And I don't really have a nickname for her or anything so I can't call out to her. I can say her name when I'm talking about her, but for some super strange reason, I can't bring myself to call her by her name. We've been friends for 6/7 years now.

Deadliest Catch question

I only watch off and on and I've caught part of this episode twice now, neither time early enough to see the reason. Not sure if it's this season or not, but on The Wizard, they were looking to replace one of the crew members and it sounded like a fellow crewman just said "I won't be sorry to see him go" Why is he leaving, what happened?

As they were looking at resumes for the new crew member one of them was from a person who used a bail bondsman and their parole officer as references. If you had a criminal history would you use those people as references or would you try and find somebody else?

Monthly Rate: Plus Road Runner Residential service $9.95/mo
Installation on up to 4 computers $9.95
Additional Computer installation after initial install
$9.95/each additional

That "monthly rate" is on top of the basic charge for the internet itself. I know full well I can install it myself. If I do so without using their installation, is it possible to bypass this BS fee they have? Do most companies that offer cable internet tack on an extra fee just to allow you to access other computers wirelessly?

Food Network..

So one of my Food Network shows was Dinner: Impossible.

Apparently they have replaced Robert Irvine with Michael Simon.

This makes me sad.

I don't know if I'll watch it anymore.

So...do you continue to watch a show, even after a major casting change?

For the Food Network fans, do you think Michael Simon will be better than Robert Irvine? I doubt he will. :(

1. I've never been to Europe or Australia before, and I'm thinking about going after fall semester or next summer. As a first-timer, where would you suggest I visit and for how long?

2. Do you go out to dinner on your birthday? If so, what is your restuarant of choice?

Many other countries eat dinner later than in the United States where the average is probably around 6 give an hour later or earlier or so. In the countries where the average dinner time s closer to say 8-9 do the young children eat earlier, or do they eat at that time and either have a later bedtime than most kids in the US or go to bed shortly after they eat?

Can you give me suggestions of fun stuff to do in the Atlanta, GA area? Bonus points if they are cheap and/or free! (If it matters, I'll be there from 7/26-8/4, and then after 8/11.)

ETA: Can you recommend me a classy bar (read: not a dance club, not a dive) in ATL that doesn't card? I am only 20. :(
