Dr. TCQ

Ok I've never been one to come here for medical advice, but since I'm not overly concerned lets here what you have to say.

I've been having these pains in my right shoulder and my right wrist. its a really weird sensation that only goes away if I apply a LOT of pressure to my shoulder/wrist but then returns within 10-15 minutes.

What do you think is wrong with me?
(I doubt its serious.. I bet you anything it will be gone by morning.)

I uploaded a large number of pictures to my Photobucket during a roadtrip on the west coast recently. I want to transfer them to my Facebook. Is there any way I can mass download all of the pictures to my desktop from my Photobucket, so that I can then upload them to Facebook? Is there a more direct way?

I could re-upload them from the camera to my computer, but my friend has the camera and I am wondering if there's a more immediate way. That's where you come in.

how do you deal with being cheated on? all he did was kiss someone else, and i'm about 95% sure it's not going to happen again. but i still don't feel the way i did before i found out.

if you've never been cheated on:
have you ever been in love with someone who loved you back, but you weren't sure if you wanted to be in a relationship right then? how did that work out for you?

if you've never been in either of those situations:
what kind of long-wear lipstick is best? i love having red lips, but i can never get the color to stay on if i eat.

oh and if NONE OF THOSE apply do you:

Do you remember the lj user names of all the people who have ~wronged~ you?



No, and it's kinda funny because in a single day I am likely to call you a racist cunt AND tell you you're my hero. I dont remember the people I'm supposed to be mad at, and it confuses them when I'm mean one second and then loving the next.

are there any little affectionate things or sayings that you don't like at all?

Hi. I just got a new TV. At the store the picture quality was really good. When I brought it home and connected it to my cable...it looked like shit. The image is pixelated and the color looks off. I tried messing with some of the picture settings, but nothing helped. I remember reading something about how now the TVs they are making are HD or something, so you need like a special cable box made for HD TVs. Is there something like that? The DVDs also look like shit when I play them. :'(

I am very clueless when it comes to this stuff, sorry :(

Hey TQC, I have a hemp necklace that I wore to a four day music festival that was really hot and miserable. The necklace now smells a bit like you'd expect it to having been to a music festival, soaking up all that fun hippy filth and sweat. Any suggestions on how I could clean it? A good friend made it for me, so before you go for the obvious answer.. fire is definitely out.

I've been looking for this website. I am not sure if it's a career oriented website, or some psychological website, but you take a quiz/test on it, and it matches your answers to career(s) that would be perfect for you. I think you have to pay a fee to take it.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I think it was put together by a psychologist or sociologist. I think the name of the test starts with the last name of the person who devised it. I heard about it a long time ago, and never really looked into it. Now, I want to use it, and I can't find the test anywhere - it's driving me nuts. I've been searching on google for the past while, and just can't seem to come across it.

Old Navy doesn't cut it anymore - the legs are always too baggy and the waist is too tight.

Inspired by the jean question:

1. Are there any short girls here who cannot find jeans that are short enough without having to cuff them?! From what I've seen in a lot of stores, the smaller size you are, the shorter length the jeans are, and yet even jeans that I got at PacSun that were a size 1 AND were labeled as "short" jeans had to be cuffed. What the fuck TQC? Help :(

2. Also, I think it's time I stopped procrastinating and applied for a credit card. I need to build up good credit so I can take out more loans for school. What is the best kind of credit card to get (for instance Visa, Amex, etc)?

I wanted to document the welt under my eye (see icon) so I turned on the PhotoBooth app on this Mac and watched in horror as it brought up a right-reading view of my face, moving around and all. Horrible! Question Cult, do you get wigged out when you see a non-reflected view of your own face on video or whatever?

Can kids make up good jokes? In my experience, they don't get the mechanics of joke construction yet so they make up weird fourth dimensional jokes that are usually cuter and funnier than well-made jokes.

PODS!

PODS is a moving company that will basically send a big metal box to your house, you put your shit in it, they come pick it up and store it, then will send it back to where ever you end up.

Sounds like a good idea y/y? But I'm worried about how much it will cost and the quality of service. I can't get them to give me a direct quote on price this far off from when I'm planning to do it.

Anyway, have you used PODS?
Did it work to your satisfaction?
How much did you pay, and how far did you move?
How long did you store with them?

Etc., etc.

Okay, dumb question, but; I haven't used mouthwash for a while, basically since back when I got my tongue pierced. I've started using it again - Listerine Citrus - and it claims to be a less intense flavour. Great, right?

Except this shit burns. The old formula definitely didn't used to burn like this, it's so bad I can't keep it in my mouth for the suggested 30 seconds and it's really painful trying to rinse out with water afterwards. Once I rinse and have a good scrub with a toothbrush it stops hurting, so it's definitely the stuff in contact with my mouth, but it doesn't seem to be causing lasting harm.

Is this normalish? Should I just keep doing it until I get used to it, or should I stop and try a different mouthwash if it's burning that badly?

Purse Parties

Background: I work on a college campus, and one of my students has suggested that we do a "Purse Party" as a fundraiser.

My Question: Can anyone clue me in as to what a purse party is? I am told the purses are "knock off" designer purses. That sounds shady to me and I'm hesitant to let my student group do such a fundraiser. Should I be worried?

Long story short, I was in the ER the night before last with one of my migraines that disguises itself as a stroke. My doctors gave me a shitload of meds, all of which make me exhausted/nauseous/lose all concentration.

I didn't come to work yesterday. I'm here today. I didn't realize how much these meds fuck me up until I got here. My boss is not here. He said he would be at 10:30-11:00 but it is now 11:30 and he has still not showed up. I want to go home.

What should I say to my boss so that he will let me leave...but not get pissed? Should I stick it out for a few more hours?

c) go over and yell at my neighbor and force her to clean it up?

what can i do to keep her cats from pooping in my yard? they are outside cats and they get free roam of the neighborhood, so grah. is there anything i can do to keep them away?...or at least from using my yard as a litterbox? (because it is so so gross and nasty nasty yuck)

Snark snark snark! (Based on an IRL conversation I just had.)

Think back on how you learned how to snark.

How old were you? Who taught you? What was your first snark target?

In junior high, I would go to my GrannySee's house after school. We'd sit on her couch, eat Little Debbie brownies and drink Dr. Pepper, and make fun of the people on Days of Our Lives. This was when Marlena Evans was possessed by Teh Debil, and the storyline was so ludicrous that Granny and I would just poke fun at everyone involved.

I learned from the best.

My cousin has a cat named Brat. This cat is the most independent and brave cat I have EVER come across. She has repeatedly attacked my 45 pound dog as if my dog was a Chihuahua and mostly wants nothing to do with people.

Recently we discovered that if you start to sing Brat flips out and starts acting all loving. She rubs against you, climbs up into you lap and sits, starts to purr, and licks you.

Why do you think she dose this? Is she a robot that activated into loving cat mode instead of insane cat mode when sang to?

Do you by  chance know what easily-purchaseable-at-a-grocery-store brands of chocolate are vegan? 

I know a lot of dark chocolate is but also that some isn't. I'm making a recipe that calls for melted chocolate and my boss is vegan so I'd like to use dark chocolate as a vegan option. 

I'd rather someone who knows what they're talking about give me advice than me buy something that isn't actually vegan.

Apt. carpets...

About 5 months ago my gf rescued a chihuahua puppy. He is about 7 months now. He is almost housebroken now with the occasional accident, but when we first got him it was horrible. He peed everywhere and my gf wasn't very good about walking him as much as needed and cleaning up his pee when he went inside. Our apartment now reeks of dog pee and it's disgusting. We've spent a bunch of money on carpet cleaners and sprays and even rented a rug doctor a couple weeks ago. Nothing has helped. If we turn the AC on, it's not as bad, but it's still disgusting. We can't invite friends over anymore because of it, and whenever my mom/family wants to visit we go out to eat instead of in our apartment because it just smells horrible. The rug doctor worked on the stains but the smell is still there and we think it has worsened in a certain area (the area he peed in the most). The pee probably seeped down into the carpet pad or the wood underneath and I can't imagine not using the AC all the time is helping the situation. I have no idea if it could be moldy or what under there.

We are renewing our lease at the end of the month and we get a free carpet cleaning but who knows if that will help. So I guess my question is did anyone have a smelly nasty carpet when you moved out of your apartment? Did you get charged for it? Not get your deposit back, etc? I can deal without my deposit, but I'm scared that when we move out we'll have to pay a ton of money for them to get new carpet and padding or whatever is under it. :( I just want to know if we'll owe a bunch of money or get ripped a new one by the office people.

I've been looking to get a pet, and someone posted in the community I'm in saying she had to get rid of her rabbit, and would give him to a good home with all his crap- cage, food, etc. I am tempted. Has anyone owned a rabbit? Are they good pets?

and related- am I wrong for being really pissed at people who just give their animals away? I volunteered at an animal shelter and people would just waltz in with pets, sometimes ones they had had for YEARS and just be like "lol sorry we dont want him anymore." I think that once you adopt/purchase an animal, he's yours and you need to care for him, unless there are extreme unforseen circumstances. Am I wrong in this?

I babysit for a few hours on weekday afternoons (nobody really goes away for college in my hometown... therefore nobody hires just for the summer - they have year-round employees), and my parents think I'm a total failure for not being able to find a job. WHATEVER. Anyway, the mom of the family I babysit for just called me (at 1:45pm, I'm supposed to be there at 3:45pm) to tell me that she's at home today because she's sick, and won't need me. I can't be at my house during between 3:45pm-6pm, because my parents will bitch and say something along the lines of "WELL IF YOU'D GOTTEN A REAL JOB THIS WOULDN'T HAVE HAPPENED" (like it's my fault?) and I'd like to avoid that.

(ETA: I've never explicitly told anyone how long I'd be working for them on an application; when you're applying for a job in one state, and and you write on the app that you currently go to school in a different state (they've always asked for education info), it's kind of a giveaway. :( Next summer I'll hopefully be staying in the area in which I'm going to school, so I won't have to worry about finding a job just for the summer. I hope.)

So my question to you, TQC, is where can I go for >2 hours to entertain myself, that doesn't require a lot of gas or a lot of money? (Assume that I'll be going by myself, because I've more or less cut ties with all my old friends in my hometown and don't want to spend time with them.)

TQC, a man in a white Ford Explorer with "imi" on the door has been sitting in his vehicle in front of my house for 30+ minutes now. Just sitting there. He even has a creepy moustache, goatee and bald head, and he looks a little like a guy in one of those Bowflex commercials.
1. How much longer is he planning on staking out my house before he comes in and beats, rapes and/or kills me? He better hurry, because my stepfather is going to be home soon, and it will be much harder for him to reach my supple young flesh if he has to contest with a toothless, middle-aged smoker with pins in his dominant hand due to an injury, right?

2. Are he and my stepdad in kahootz to double-team me?

3. Am I going to get lambasted for joking about rape? What about the Bowflex?

You're with someone who's a really bad kisser. Either they force their tongue down your throat, or just peck, or their mouth is a slobber factory. How important is kissing in a relationship, and would it impede the intimacy?

It's very important. If he/she can't kiss, it kind of puts the brakes on the intimacy

It's important, but I'm willing to teach. And I don't feel that sucking face has an impact on any other physical acts of intimacy

Because a SO really likes you, they get really nervous with you in bed. This leads to a series of 'really' premature ejaculations. If it's a girl, then she's so nervous that she just can hardly lubricate. Is this a big enough setback to throw out the relationship, or can/will you get past this?

Sure. If they can give sufficient oral sex (and maybe break out the bottle of lube), and all is forgiven
60(58.3%)
I'd be incredibly disappointed. I think it would impact the relationship and how I feel about them

So I've had a really shitty week, and it's only wednesday. I'm not usually superstitious, but I don't generally have luck this bad and I've been having REALLY bad luck, to the point that I'm honestly scared of what the rest of the week has in store for me.

So, superstitious people of TQC, anything I can do to boost my luck?

How do you deal with a string of bad luck days?

1) At what age would you let your [possibly hypothetical]kid see the latest batman movie?

at least 10, but probably more like 12.

2)Are they giving out free air conditioners to the elderly in your city?

yes.

3)I actually had a debate about this. At what age would you allow your kid to read a novel in which one of the plot twists was "I fucked your hot mom"

I thought you needed to be at least 14 to contain the squick.

Are you self-centered?


I am, sometimes to such an extreme that I wonder if there's something wrong with me. For instance, earlier today my grandmother was over and she fell down and hurt herself and I just didn't care. I was just annoyed.

cash monies

I want to put my editing skills to better use.

1. How much should I charge to edit things like high school/college essays? Would you charge per hour or per document?

2. How much should I charge for tutoring in English, Science, and History? I hear that people get anywhere from $30 to $150 an hour in my area. What's a normal hourly tutoring fee? Should I tutor at my home or go to other people's homes?

Have you noticed that a lot of TQC members belong to a lot of the same communities? (like S_F, ONTD)

Which, do you think, are the most popular communities shared by TQC members?

I've got 30 people coming to a party on Saturday. How many hotdogs and hamburgers should I buy? How many bottles of soda (we already have a keg)?

TQC, I need your help to settle something between my co-workers. Is there a technical name for those "crumbs" that come off the eraser when you're erasing something?

If you don't know, what do you, personally, call them?

Do you know what a Ranga is?
(i don't think its a nice term, i was just watching Summer heights high and was wondering if the slang was heard anywhere else)

Is the weather nice where you are?

Have you seen the show "Summer heights high"?

1. If you have a sibling, do you consider them your best friend? Or best friends, if you have more than one.

2. My sister and I have gone through Friends, The Office, That 70s Show, House, Heroes, and One Tree Hill. Can you recommend a new show for us to start watching?! Comedy is preferred.

Do you dip your sweet potato fries in ketchup?

If not, do you eat them with another condiment, or just eat them plain?

(Both of my posts today have been about food... I clearly have a one-track mind.)

Sooo...I keep getting hot flashes. I'm nowhere near my period and I'm only 19. What the heck is going on?

What movie are you currently wanting to see? (doesn't have to be in the theatres)

What was the last movie you were disappointed in?

On Monday, I had heartburn in the moring that led to me throwing up all afternoon into the evening.  I had part of a bagel, a few teddy grahams, and a couple of saltine crackers.  Yesterday was ok, so I had a turkey and cheese with lettuce and mayo and some saltine crackers.  I have heartburn again today but not nearly as bad as Monday.  To soothe it, I had a chocolate shake for lunch and some water.  It can't be anything in my diet because I haven't been eating that dangerously and my heartburn always comes before I eat.

What's going on with me, Dr. TQC?

So someone raped and murdered your entire family. You tracked them down to an empty field, middle of the night, no one around for miles. Hell, you're in another state entirely. You have a gun in your hand.
Do you kill them and bring justice to your slain loved ones? Or do you turn them in to the police and let them face the law?

Does club soda actually work for getting out a coffee stain on a light coloured carpet?

I know its listed on dozens of sites when you google "how to get a coffee stain out of carpet" but I tried vinegar, dishsoap, and water like was suggested on the websites and that doesnt seem to have worked so I was curious if anyone could say one way or another if it actually works.

Got any other stain removal suggestions or should I just move the couch over it to hide it?

i did that thing again where i commented to another community that i'm not technically a member of and my comment was screened and therefore non-existent. so not to completely waste my time google-imaging, i'll just make a post here about it, lol.
