What is the best question you have ever seen asked in TQC?
What should a good question post consist of? (Personal questions, stories, several short questions, etc.)
Does it make you feel better? Even though the scab will be worse than the pimple itself?
Have you ever been tempted to pop someone else's?
Have you ever actually done it?
I moved into a new apartment this weekend. I went to take a shower just now, and lo and behold there is no shower head. I took one regardless but this is something I would really prefer to have. The landlord should provide me one, right?
my boyfriend and I were just caught naked in his car on the side of the road by one crusier, one giant police truck with gleaming judgemental lights, and one other police vehicle.
A) why is it necessary for them to have atleast 8 police officers at the scene of something like this? Shouldnt they be somewhere else?
B) Have you ever had any embarassing naked moments?
i am going to get a jar and a funnel and make a trap for it...i will put food in the bottom to lure it in.
SO TQC: if you were a cricket, what would be the most appealing food to entice you into a glass jar?
Do you lock the door when you're not alone at home?
not worth the trouble or great for their magic powers?
edited to note: i have heard of using an apple cider vinegar/water mixture and also (separately) a baking soda/water mixture. has anyone heard of these? have you tried them?

Right now I can't get enough of Living Loving Maid, though Immigrant Song rocks and Ramble On is wonderful.
For anyone/everyone: How similar would a tattoo have to be in order for it to be a rip-off of another?
To those of you who have tattoos, do all of your tattoos have a purpose/meaning or do you have any tattoos simply because you like the look? Why did you choose the design(s) you chose? Were any of them inspired by another tattoo you've seen?
I want to get this wrist tattoo and it sort of has purpose to me, sort of doesn't at the same time, but the appearance of the tattoo is very much like one I've seen elsewhere. But it's the most basic sort of bracelet/wrist tattoo you can get, no fancy design, just like a couple skinny bands wrapping around my wrist. It is a basic tattoo but the way in which it ties off is unique. I doubt anyone would notice but I can't help but feel like I'd be ripping off the tattoo that's inspired my particular vision of it. Do you have any thoughts/comments that could help me clear this up with myself?
Something about the noise, and the fact that I couldn't see behind the shower curtain.
Have you ever been (or are you still) afraid of any noises?
Anyone at all: your friends, your SO, your children, etc.
I don't think it's possible because, well, you can't exactly control love can you? Nor can you balance your love for one person with your love for another... so... how about you guys?
I really don't want to be awake at 7am every day, but this isn't necessarily an advice post, just a curiosity post inspired by my own troubles.
My Timex Triathalon is looking pretty stale.
This is the one I REALLY wear now: http://www.kohls.com/kohlsStore/giftshop/btsyoungmens/watches/PRD~289531/Armitron+Automatic+Skeleton+Watch++Black.jsp#
Jane believes since she said up front she didn't think it was a good idea that, effectively it boils down to that unpleasant 4 letter word (I'll go ahead and use it; 'rape').
Dick believes it doesn't because Jane never said "no" or "stop" during the 'use', so that they have a difference of opinion.
Jane later told Dick that she had mentally shut down, which would be why she didn't say "no" or "stop".
So, I ask you, is Dick or Jane right? Or, is it a mix of the two?
I know I'm coming at it from a woman's standpoint and as a woman who's lived through a rape myself, so I suspect I'm being sympathetic, but I'm on Jane's side of the fence.
Racist - Y/N?
I did. Its awesome.
I started to sing "Dickhead" by Kate Nash to him as he stormed out of the living room.
Everyone got quite a kick out of that.
What was the last song you sang to someone and why?
1. How do you describe a color to someone who has never seen one? Either they are color blind or completely blind.
2. My Mum has no sense of taste. What sense would you hate to lose the most? Why?
2. Marginally creative
3. Not TOO difficult to prepare?
I'm supposed to take my (very poor) friend shopping today and basically tell her what to get so that she can have meals at home for a couple of weeks. I'm trying to come up with ideas ahead of time so that I can make a list.
ETA: Not prepackaged things like mac and cheese or ramen. That's what they eat now. She's looking for ideas to start cooking simple meals.
will somebody take these forks and knives out of my leg please?!?
Edit: It's 9am here. Not too early to get drunk, y/y?
Lewis Black has a show on Comedy Central where two comedians debate which of two subject is more despicable. The most recent episode I saw had Ultimate Fighting versus Blogging. If you're unfamiliar with Ultimate Fighting (or mixed martial arts) it's like boxing with elbows, knees, and wrestling. It's been called human cockfighting. Fair enough. If you're unfamiliar with Blogging... well, uhhhhh... go check out stupid_free. So, TQC, which is more evil?
1. the students' stupidity?
2. the professor's ability/inability to teach?
3. the creation of a test that doesn't properly measure what has been learned in class?
4. all of the above?
What do you plan to accomplish between now and Dec 31st? Have you started?
What have you accomplished to date? Are you working on anything now?
I'm about to head to the shops. Do you need anything?
I've been messing up at work pretty badly lately.
I got caught slacking on inventory, refunded a sale incorrectly, and today I was late because my treatment session at the hospital ran way too long. When I got to work, the combination on the lock was changed, so I had to call my manager to get the new one. I told him my treatment made me get there right at 9...but I didn't call him until 9:04.
Only four minutes....that's not so bad, is it?
Or am I in deep trouble?
What are your work screw ups?
What are your screw ups in general?
All morning, while getting ready for work, I kept thinking of things I was curious about, and wanting to go online to ask TQC. Alas, here I am. Help me!
Warning: questions are very random and do not coincide with each other at all.
1. I wanted to say "bear with me" after my warning. Is it "bear"? Or is there some other way to spell that that I'm oblivious of?
2. Can someone recommend some nice soft, inexpensive towels? I always see/buy big fluffy ones, but then when I wrap them around myself after a shower, all these fuzzies are covering my body! I want a comfy towel that will not shed on me.
3. Does anyone have weird bumps on their arms? I have like ttiinnnyyy little pimple-like bumps, that "pop" when squeezed. Gross, I know. I've had them since I was much younger, and I have a few tiny little scars from them. What is wrong with me skin? Is it the AIDS?
4. On my upper arm near my shoulder I used to have a dry, rough patch of skin. It was not that big, and it was like a circle, and no matter how much I moisturized, it stayed. Now it's not that bad, but it made that patch of skin a little extra white. Is this also the AIDS?
5. My SO has a habit of semi-rushing me to go home (as in "soo can we go in like 15 minutes?" when I'm at a friend's house with him/out in the city/etc.), and he will mumble something about being tired/mildly sick, and then when he drops me off at like 10:30 pm (-_-) and I text him asking what he's up to later, he's at a friend's house or at a party. What the fuck TQC? Does my SO hate me?
I'm thinking it'll run between about $200-$400, since when we replaced a power window motor in my mom's car, she paid $550 for it, and I'm sure the manual mechanisms are cheaper.
My co-worker has a job interview today at another company. Originally, I was just going to cover her desk for her (we're a satellite office; no one would ever know) except that we found out our boss is driving the 150 miles to our area for a last minute meeting. Now my co-worker will have to account for her absence. What should she tell our boss as the reason for her leaving the office early?
What's the worst excuse you've ever gotten from a friend/relative/co-worker for getting out of something you've asked them to do?
If you're on anything other than your first read then what book are you currently reading?
Long story short- I can order a couple books for free right now. Do you know any books on revolutionaries, or revolts or movements? I am really interested in that topic but don't know where to start.
Have you ever sent goodies to Iraq? What else should I send? He doesn't need necessities, he's good with all that. I'm also sending a flash drive full of pictures for him. How should I package the cookies so they don't blow away in the wind?
What do you think?
Do you think something like this would ever work in TQC?
What vitamins do you take and are they huge?

Also out of curiosity, how is the Memphis airport?
Also, if you have Verizon, what phone do you have? do you like it?
Do you make smoothies? If so, what kind?
TQC, what the fuck is this woman doing down there?
1. If the teller at the bank made a mistake and deposited an extra $500 into your account, what would you do?
Tell them ASAP?
Or wait for them to catch the mistake on their own, (hoping they never do!) but live with that guilt and anxiety?
2. Have you ever shoplifted? How did it make you feel?
2. If you have a nervous habit, what is it?
3. What is something that would taste good on pizza that is not the norm? I think onion rings would be awesome.
I applied for like 20 million jobs online and i feel like i cant do any more applying, i just need to wait to hear from people.
I already cleaned the house.
What should i do???
I havnt had this many days off in more than a year, it feels very strange. I hated my job, but right now i miss work.
What are you guys doing today?
I think it's actually harder to be evil because you have to have build up the man power and resources in order to pull off these big elaborately evil plots and the good people just have to figure out how to stop them.
I'm not talking about your favorite flavor or one you think is cool, i'm talking about that flavor you have to get all dressed up to eat, and you have to hold your pinky out while eating them.
What do we need to talk about, tqc?!
ETA: I asked him what about last night but he didn't say anything.

Last night it was super itchy & red, and it's starting to do that again. I'm 99.9% sure that there's nothing in it.
Have you ever put your number on TQC before?
When did you last take a glorious shit?
What are some great restaurants that my husband and I should check out while we're there?
We will be there a week.
I understand it's some sort of grilling of steaks on a pitchfork, and I'm going with my boyfriend and his parents (so there's already dread), but I'm wondering if it's cool, or if it's going to suck ass.
I've just completed a 2 year National BTEC Diploma (level 3?) and I've come out of it with a MPP and a-level in photography (C). I've checked a UCAS Talent Calculator and I've got 240 points.
Is this good? Like it is a alright amount of points? I'm more curious than anything, I'm re-doing a college course anyway for a-levels so Uni doesn't matter to me just yet. But yeah.
I just found the most amazing organic produce market in the outer reaches of my neighborhood. All the beautiful fruits and vegetables in there just made me very happy. They were lovely to look at, and they smelled good, and now I am eating the most delicious peach :)
For example, I've found that low flush toilets usually need more than 1 flush, even for pee & tp.
Microsoft products don't count ;-)
I've lost 30 pounds since I had my kid, and this is with significant muscle gain, but I've only gone down 4 pants sizes and one shirt size, but maybe only 2 dress sizes, if that. HOW DOES THIS WORK?

What's the longest you've been somewhere "on vacation"?
2) When was the last time someone saw you topless other than your bf/so? How did it happen?
I think she's nuts. Does anyone else know what this is, or have a similar memory? She's talking something they learned 1994-ish.
Odd, I never do.
OK, just for clarification. People who wipe back to front, you don't just start at the asshole and wipe everything all at once right? It seems that a lot of people think that.
Have any right now?
Your first computer? *Bonus points for the most odd one*
Do you sell on eBay?

I'm in a 132 square foot double room.

How is it fair that other students get 204 square foot double rooms, and pay the exact same amount as me for housing?
Do I have the right to be pissed?
Any survival tips?
I usually 'multitask' but then my browsing takes over and before long i'm on a trail of some interesting topic and then I realise I have completely forgotton the work I was supposed to be doing.
How do you stop yourself? I never get anything done!
What is something gross you like to do?
When my puppy is sleeping on my lap I squeeze his black heads. If he's awake he growls at me because he doesn't like his paws touched!
2)How is your motivation today?
3)Are you good at writing fiction?
I'm ok at writing short stories. Very short stories.
Immediately after that, three people got in line behind me. They each had two items. (ETA: They were all together)
I didn't let them go ahead of me. Should I have? I got the feeling they were peeved.
I figured I could probably let people like this cut all night and then never get my stuff checked.
Do you let people ahead of you when you are in a situation like mine?
If you are the person behind me: Do you expect someone like me to offer to let you cut?
Its a male btw if that matters.
Should I get key lime pie later, or drink a fun-sized bottle of vodka? I don't want to mix my pie and liquor.
I'm pretty appalled to be honest but he's just being bulshy and aggressive.
What do I do? No parents around until later.

Do they evaluate how much you need that semester or year to pay for things or will they let you take out as much as you want/need? I'll have a cosigner.
(basically I'm asking because I'm thinking of taking a student loan to pay for something other than school. It'll cost more than a semester. I just don't want to be REQUIRED to make payments right away. I'd rather be able to start paying it off now and not have the payments kick in until after graduation.)
Ganon or Ganondorf?
How often do you use the Bunny Hood?
I work at The Food Bank, and we're getting ready (tomorrow!) to launch a new program, called Food Bank Fresh. It's like an ice-cream truck, but rather than selling ice cream, we're giving away fresh fruit and vegetable snacks. We're specifically targeting areas of our town that are "food deserts," aka there aren't any grocery stores around, so if you want a banana you spend $1.29 for one at the gas station.
Our truck is ready to go, fruit/carrot sticks are ready to be given out, but like an ice-cream truck, we need to make noise to be noticed and draw kids outside. We have a speaker and an iPod - so what music should I put on it? I've googled and iTuned "fruit," "vegetable," "food" songs, fanfares, kid songs, Veggie Tales (yuck!)... any other suggestions? It's not just for kids, but the idea of the ice-cream truck is generally kid-oriented.
So, what music would draw you outdoors on a hot day to get your free fresh fruit snack?
And... since I think we're going to strike out on this... anyone know the ins and outs of getting a jingle produced? Maybe we just have to promote ourselves...
2: How often do you have dessert?
3: Do you ever have dessert after lunch when you're at work/school or is it more of a home/restaurant food?
( Collapse )
I was told I'm spoiled rotten when I work my fucking ass off and take care of everyone around me. If I'm spoiled its because I spoil myself and I deserve it god damn it!
2. What is something you would like to say to someone right now? Dead or alive.
tqc, why is my cat so glamorous?

Can you think of any cute/clever sayings I could write in it besides, "Get Well"?
1) How old were you when you moved out of your parents' house and got your own place? Dorm living, going away for college doesn't count.
2) How did you manage to afford living on your own for the first time? Did you have money saved up, took out a loan?
i'm a bum and still live at home, and have never lived on my own before, so i don't know anything about all of this apartment business. :|
ETA: also! does anyone know what sort of questions are asked on civil service tests for post office work?
Can you post a picture of a hair cut that I should get?
I'm worried that he won't be able to get down. Should I try to move him, or just leave him alone and stop worrying about it?
My cousin is here and has assured me he's fine, and not to worry, but I'm still worried.
The work week BEFORE a vacation,
or the work week AFTER a vacation?
I'm leaving Saturday for a vacation, so right now my vote is BEFORE.

It shouldn't be TOO BIG (no more than say, fifty pounds - so not like a lab or anything that big), must be smart, and be able to do well in the car, as I want to start traveling a lot next year. Must be good with kids, as it might be around my nieces and nephew a lot, and must do okay with my cat.
I'd adopt from a shelter/rescue group, but would love suggestions on breeds/mixes that might suit such a lifestyle.
In one word will you describe both of them?
and if you're feelin lazy:

When I have something with pepperoni on it for instance, I'll pick that off and eat it first. If it's stuffed crust, sometimes I'll rip off the crust and eat it.
I have. :( And it's worse than it first was.
I'm having surgery on my left elbow on friday and I've never had surgery before. Who here has had surgery? What was that like? Anyone else broken their elbow? Did you have screws put in? How long did it take before you could use your arm again? (I'm left handed as well.)

6. What Dickens character are you most like, and why? Is that character your favorite, or is your favorite a different character?
1. Target: I bought some headphones but they are still in the package. I'm not sure if I want to keep them. If I take them out of the package (which would require cutting of the plastic, etc) could I still return them if I don't like how they fit?
2. Target: I bought a set of drawers and assembled it and realized the drawers are way smaller than I'd hoped for. Could I return assembled furniture?
3. Express: I bought some pants a month or so ago and after the first washing, the hook closure came off. Can I exchange them or is that my problem since I already washed them?

Personally? House all the way. I think I have a thing for sardonic older men - thus my obsession with both House as well as Anthony Bourdain.
EDIT - !! I can't believe I left out both Dr. Cox and Dr. Wilson. They definitely belong on the list.

My pussycat got out an open window some time super early this morning, it's now 9pm. I've been combing the neighbours' yards and posting bills and calling her and posting ads all day. Calling shelters and vets tomorrow. What do you think my chances are of getting her back?
Can you cheer me up?
Will you tell me something really disgusting about yourself?
Regardless of whether you wipe front to back or back to front, which side do you put your arm? Like behind you or between your legs?
My mother always said to put your hand behind you and wipe from the front but I swear it's just easier to go between your legs.

1b. Have you known someone who had their car keyed?
2. If yes to either, what did it say? Any idea who did it?
3. Have you ever keyed someone's car?
When I was out today, I saw a car that had been keyed pretty badly. After squinting at it for a while, I finally deciphered it as reading "slut" or possibly "slutty." I'd never actually seen a keyed car before, so it was kind of interesting.
2. How did you both work it out and how long did it take for you both to get over it?
3. Do you regret doing what you did?
