1. In what situations are you afraid of the dark?

2. How do you feel about moths?

3. I'm really hungry and nothing here looks appealing. I want to go to the store but I don't like going out in my driveway in the dark. If I turn the light on I'll have a herd of moths waiting for me when I get back =[ I can't win. Should I brave the dark/moths to go to the grocery store? If so, what should I get there? I can't buy anything too unhealthy because self-checkout is closed.

For our family reunion this past Sunday, my grandfather found our family crest on a tapestry and hung it up in his garage along with all of his other pictures and knickknacks. Our motto is Non Est Aliena. We...have no idea what it means.

Does anyone here know what that motto would be, translated into English?

Spiders

I saw what I'm pretty sure was a black widow spider and its Egg Sac today at my kung fu teachers house. I googled the egg sac, etc, and it looks pretty dead on.

My question, do you know of any spiders that resemble in coloration and egg sac-ness the appearance of a black widow spider (that would be native to Louisiana)?

Also, should I bring a lighter next week and burn the spider and its babies alive, widow or otherwise?

Have you ever had a run in with a black widow?

my little sister is eleven, and she is going to be staying with me tomorrow night. it's going to be a pretty fun, girly time, and she looks up to me a lot and i know that i have more influence over her than probably anyone. my sister has also been putting on weight consistently through her whole life, and now that she is at that awkward stage right before becoming a teenager, our dad and i have been worrying about how her weight might start to really affect her life.

knowing how she looks up to me, he called me today and asked me if i could make subtle hints about being healthy to encourage her to work on her eating habits and such. during this stay, i'm not planning on making any blunt comments which she might pick up on what i am really getting at because i don't want to make her feel badly and ruin our fun time, so i'm wondering what i should do -- for both this stay and in general. i would really like to help her out however i can, but i live an hour and a half away from my family and i don't know what i can do. what would tqc suggest?

1. I am moving to a new apartment on September 1. My lease is up here August 31. I know I'm not the only person to ever have a situation like this - but where do I sleep the night of August 31 and where does my stuff go? I've already checked - I have to be out of here by midnight August 31 and can't move into the new place until September 1 (and I'm not moving at midnight). I've always had at least a few days to move... so how does this work?

I ordered a bunch of parts and built a new computer from scratch. I put it together downstairs, since there was more space, and hooked it up to the tv in the living room to make sure it worked. It booted up, but since I hadn't installed an OS, it didn't do much else. I brought it upstairs to hook up to my monitor and install the OS, but now nothing appears on the monitor. I borrowed somebody else's monitor to check, and it didn't work on theirs either. I checked with the tv again and it works, but I don't want to have my computer hooked up to the tv all the time.

How do I get my monitor to work with my computer?

I'm taking a Calculus 2 class right now in preparation for graduate school. I need to know the material, but my grade doesn't matter (I've already been accepted). I work full-time and getting the motivation to studystudystudy is hard since my grade doesn't matter. We have a quiz in the beginning of every class, which is twice a week. I swear, I have nightmares about these quizzes. Not to mention the fact that trying to cram 15 weeks of calculus into 6 weeks is tough. I feel like if it were a regular semester I would be doing a lot better.

TQC, how hard should I be trying on this stuff? I know the stuff when I do the homework, but my brain dies when I get the quizzes.

Does anyone else find that if they sleep with earplugs in, their ears can get very uncomfortable/sore? In particular, I notice that if I have one ear against the pillow, I wake up with a really sore ear. I just use cheap disposable earplugs from the pharmacy.

I live somewhere very noisy and some nights I really need those earplugs, is it possible to get earplugs that can be kept in while sleeping that don't cause that sort of pain? Where can you get them? Or is that likely to just be me having crappy ear cannals?

1) Any recommendations for games I should check out for that kind of genre and playing type?

I have been divorced for over a year.  My ex-wife is employed and gets a steady paycheck, but she is not financially responsible.  This character trait has gotten her evicted twice in the last 6 months, and I have loaned her over $3,000 so far (unpaid).  After this second eviction, not only did I float her yet another $400 (to get back into her apartment), I also let her and her son sleep at my 1 bedroom apartment last night, which is occupied by me and my girlfriend.

I'm a compassionate person, but I've clearly started a cycle of enabling her behavior.  This afternoon I suggested she get a second job, which she flatly refused.  She doesn't have any family living in-state.  She won't be sleeping at my place tonight, since she got her apartment back, but I have no doubt there will be a next time.  I'm not quite sure how to break out of this cycle without throwing her out into the street to sleep on the curb.  Any suggestions?

*Edit - The kid is not my son.

I've been calling my aunt all morning to find out what time she wants us to be at her house tomorrow. It's important for me to talk to her relatively soon because my dad needs to know what time he'll have to leave work tomorrow, before he leaves today.

Anyway to get to the point, after calling about 5 times over the course of 2 hours my uncle answers and says "She's not here!" not "hello" or anything pleasant like that. I know if it was some other family member calling he would not have answered in such a manner. I found this to be quite rude. Would you consider this rude?

EDIT: I would never usually call so much but I really needed the info quickly. Apparently my uncle had been home all day but didn't bother to answer until I called 5 times. Couldn't he have answered the first time, said "Hello Joan!" and then told me my aunt wasn't there?

Due to various agreements you made with people you would not normally associate with if you weren't completely wasted on what certain people claimed to be "just water", you find yourself transported to a parallel universe where clones of you run about and cause a lot of havok and mischief, ruining your good name. Normally you'd be okay with this kind of thing, but the police think you're part of the mischief and want to send you to jail-- which, in this place, is a small prison cell filled with dull, rusty things that may or may not give you tetanus.

However, the people in the mischief seem to be having a lot of fun, using their giant, dark-colored dragon-thingy to burn down people, places, and things. And the police don't seem to be stopping them-- which might have something to do with the dragon. Bearing this in mind, will you:

1- Attempt to convince to the police officer of the idea of a parallel universe-- which you don't really even remember all the details to?
2- Double-click the power cord?
3- Use your own giant, dark-colored dragon thing and proceed to burn down the police, followed by your alternate universe dopplegangers?
4- Just accept your future in prison, because you're a pansy and don't want to case trouble?
5- Bribe the officer with money and/or sex?
6- Join in the mischief and just have fun blowing up shit with giant dragon things?
7- Kill yourself?

HI TQC!! yesterday i sprained my ankle in tescos and it's all bandaged up and i have to walk about with a limp at the moment! BUT on this thursday evening i'm going back to evening drama classes to improve my skills and then i'll quit my job and be an actress again! i'm still going to be limping by then the people at hospital said and i don't want people to think i'm silly and limpy so I THOUGHT THAT it would be really fun to dress up as someone who limps about and be 'ACTING'! i'm a bit astonished at this idea and how good it is!!

so who are some characters (recognisable ones) that limp?! from anything! it doesn't have to be a female character, i don't mind.

i thought i could be the joker and put my draggy footness into the funny walk thing but my friend who i was discussing this with said they'd think i was annoying and jumping on the heath ledger bandwagon. i haven't met these people before and i don't want them to not like me!

Do you pay a deductible for your health insurance or a copay when you go to visit the doctor?

I thought we paid a copay and the fact that I didn't get charged when I went to see my doc was because they had to process my insurance...but the people at work were telling me we have some deductible shit and they will only pay for your doctor visits if it meets certain dollar amounts. I have never heard of this before so now I am curious as to why I didn't get a bill from a Dr appointment in June and if Im going to get one for my visit today!

I want to go to New York City next year, with a couple of friends. I'd originally planned on us going there in autumn, but that's not possible because of school and all - so we'll have to go during the summer. But what's the best time to go? Early summer, (late May - June) or late (July - August)? I want to avoid extreme heat waves, if possible - and I don't want to be there at a time when sights and shops are closed for the summer.

Related - how can three 21 year old girls best keep safe there? This'll be the first time any of us go to a city as big as New York so I don't really know what to expect danger-wise (I'm used to Oslo, Norway - which is a really tiny and very calm city, so I'm used to walking around everywhere feeling safe and relaxed).

And while I'm at it - got any nice, reasonably priced hotels to recommend?

Last night, my boyfriend got up to go to the bathroom. His moving around kind of half woke me up. When he was heading back to bed, we heard a loud CRASH.

I came home and found a delivery notice from Amazon on my door. Except... I didn't order anything! It is my birthday on Saturday, but nothing's listed as purchased from my wishlist (yeah, I checked... I'm horrible :P)... plus, my friends that are helping me celebrate know not to get me anything.

What do you think it is, TQC? (Srs/non-srs answers welcome!)

HTML fail

I'm trying to make a journal entry where it has a black background and white text. How in the everloving name of GOD can one do this with html? I have seriously been on google trying to look this up and it's driving me nuts. Help me stop pulling my hair out.

Thanks.

Where do I go to find new and better friends?

How come I can never meet the type of people I would enjoy being friends with?

Why does TQC and the internet seem so boring today?

Why do I NOT want to play WoW for once?

Hieroglyphs

I have a job working in my university library moving books onto shelves after their recent expansion. Today's set of books were mostly on Ancient Egypt and, whilst moving some on Tutankhamun I began wondering how we know that that was actually his name. As in, if Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs were a dead and indecipherable language until that chap discovered and translated the Rossetta stone, then how do we know the correct pronounciation? How do we even translate the basic sounds from Hierogyphics into English if we don't know how hieroglyphs were pronounced?

Any ideas?

EDIT: Apologies for blowing minds. If I'd known this question to be so potent, I'd have marketed it to the Ministry of Defence instead of posting it. ;)

2nd EDIT: Answered! New question: How many gods is reasonable for one religion? Should religions with lots of gods have to share with religions which only have one or two?

What to do...

 I'm going to a friends tonight for drinks. We tend to go overboard and have drunken adventures that I rarely remember.

Should I bring the remaining two Smirnoff Ices I have and nurse them all night, or bring the Smirnoff AND a bottle of white wine and have another adventure?

Edit: Going for another adventure!!

I ordered with a company that uses FedEx and they misdelivered my package AGAIN, even though the correct address was on it. This means one of my dumbass neighbors has it, and yet they haven't bothered to contact me to let me know they have my package.

Has FedEx ever failed you? What are your mailing service woes?

Have you ever done something, that something being something you've spent years longing for, maybe even built your whole life around, and then once you got it/accomplish it, you realize you don't really like it all that much?

What was it?

How did you deal with it?

Have you ever just wanted to go home?

drug etiquette

My friend and my roommate just ate some hallucinogenic mushrooms. We were supposed to do them all together tomorrow and go to the beach and shit, but they got bored at just ate some! I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow morning, so I can't. There's still enough for another day (maybe), but I'm still pissed.

1. Is that rude or am I overreacting?

2. How can I sabotage their trip?

edit I gave in and ate some, too.

Knocked unconscious, you wake up in a room with 99 other strangers. There is a bomb attached to the door and there are no windows or other method of escape.

A voice over the intercom tells you that there are 100 people in a room down the hall in the same situation. Each room has a button on the wall. If one of you presses the button, the people in the second room will die, but your room will be free to go. If nobody pushes either button in 60 minutes, both bombs go off and everyone dies.

What do you do?

Press the button.

Hope someone else presses the button.

Wait to be rescued. Surely someone will find you in time.
4(4.4%)
Prepare to die, since you can't imagine killing someone else even to save yourself.
17(18.9%)
Prepare to die, someone in the other room will press the button before you guys do.

Would your answer change if you knew the people in the other room were child-molesting furries who liked Twilight?

Has anyone in the history of the Internet ever actually spit liquid onto their keyboard/monitor after reading something funny?

I'm skeptical. But if you have, what was so funny?
