Hypothetical situation:
You are head over heels over Jack, who in your opinion is heaven/the perfect boyfriend/attractive/charming etc. Anyways, Jack is ~in love~ with Michelle (think the same amount of intensity comparable to yours to Jack), but Michelle doesn't feel the same way. After Jack gets rejected by Michelle, he chooses you.

Would you be pissed that you where second choice and not go out with them/whatever?
Or would you just still be happy that you are ~with your love~ and not care that he wasn't your #1 choice?

okay question club
this question is mainly for americans or travellers.
i am from australia and in november i will be going to california (my first overseas trip!) with my friend to visit her mum who lives in santa cruz.
we will be going to los angeles, san francisco and then just after thanksgiving heading over to pennsylvania to stay with her grandparents untill new years eve.
on new years eve we will be arriving in new york where we will be for the remainder of our trip untill mid january and then taking a flight home which has a breif stop over at hawaii.
 
i have two three questions here

do you have any suggestions on things that i should pack coming from australia.
i dont want to take too much because i have alot of spending money to use up.

seccondly

are there any totally awesome places that you would reccomend me going? typically tourist-y (or even not so!) around santa cruz, LA, san fran, NYC or hawaii?

is it going to be possible for me to stay on my diet while i am over there? i am on a meal replacement protein shake diet and i heard you have to declare the shakes (its just powder in a packet) if you take them over and i have no idea if there are any programs like that over there.
2 shakes a day, 2 litres of water and dinner is a palm sized portion of protein + three cups of veg?

THANKYOU TQC!!

Could someone please, for the love of baby Jesus and the orphans, explain to me how to use the damn Bumper Stickers application on Facebook?

A friend of mine left a message on my wall yesterday wanting to know why I hadn't posted any of the bumper stickers she's sent me...meanwhile, I didn't even know she'd sent me any. And I'd like to add some stickers to my own wall, but it doesn't seem to be working. It's driving me nuts because I'm sure it's retardedly easy and I should be able to figure it out, but I can't!

Poll #1236004 Love and Devotion

On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being ZOMG that's gross and 10 being wow, now THAT is some devotion) how romantic of a gesture would it be if your SO cut one of their ears off and mailed it to you?

If your SO were to amputate something as a romantic gesture, would it be even more romantic if what they sent you had bones in it (like a finger)?

That would show way more devotion

That would show way more craziness
22(25.9%)

You're given $20 and released in front of a grocery store. You have an hour to get food, cook it, eat it and get back to work. At your job is a microwave and basic cooking implements (silverware, plates, etc). You can't go home or anywhere else - food has to be ready to eat or prepared at your job, which is across the street from the grocery store. What do you buy?

Do you use the Memories feature?
If yes, will you share an entry you've memoried (it doesn't have to be from your LJ)?

Do you tag your entries?
If yes, which tag do you find the most amusing?

If you don't do either of the above things, how much would someone have to pay you to give a speech to a room full of 100 strangers in your underwear? The speech would be written already, you'd only have to read what was there. You can't stand behind a podium either and the words are on a Teleprompter you can read so there's nothing to hide behind.

omg you guys.
I got asked out on a date for the first time in years today by a guy I work with (Not because I'm some fug bitch, but because I recently broke up with someone after a year and a half.)
Also, I haven't had sex in months and am starved.


1. What's a good way of keeping my pants on so I don't come off as some skank who puts out on the first date? Chastity belt? Do they even still make those? Would I be able to wear it under normal clothes without looking like a diaper?

2. How weird would it be if it turned out he was in TQC and was reading this and thinking, "omg I wonder if that girl I asked out is in tqc and asking this.."?

3. How awkward will it be if the date is mizzzzeruhbull and we still have to work together?

since i can't delete posts, here's just a side note - i didn't actually think tqc would parent me about this, & tell me to grow up/get over it/what have you, when the community itself finds the term "hookers & blow" funny. awesome. maybe i should just be a grammar nazi, & then the bitching would be a-ok. alright, i get it.

So, on the back of an earlier question about oral birth control...
Ladies, did you ever start bleeding all the damn time, for no reason? This was just after I met my current SO. I tried another brand of the same pill, which didn't work. Sent for horrible scans and inspections and so on. They gave me a hormone pill to stop it in the meantime, and then eventually a conraceptive pill that doesn't seem to cause any problems.

I'm now on a pill that seems to make everything ok, but my SO (who was a virgin pre-me) is suddenly growing hairs on his shoulders, and my nipples *hurt*. What's going on? I'm not inexperienced.

So what do you think: If I have Saturday and Sunday off as well, should I volunteer to go in on Friday to make up for my lost hours today, or should I just say fuck it and take the loss?

Oh em gee, LJ, my hair is falling out like my body decided it's out of style. Also, it seems really heavy and eck.

I have vowed for this year to not dye my hair or do any other damaging crap because my hair is like "Ahhh". Is that why this is happening?

What can I do to make my hair stop falling out or feel lighter or something without cutting it? It's just barely to my shoulders and I would really like to get it around my shoulder blades. My hair is stupid thick.

Kentucky just made it legal to drive low-speed electric cars on the public roads. They're called "low-speed" because often their max speed is only 25mph or so. In KYs case, these cars will only be allowed on roads with 45mph speed limits or less.

Would you support a similar law for your area?

In other, other news, the US immigration and customs enforcement (ICE) has set up a hotline illegals can call if they'd like to be deported back to their home country, like a one-way taxi service. If they think you can afford it, they want you to pay, but in exchange for the nicety of turning yourself in you get 90 days legally here to tie up any loose ends, and they promise they won't detain you for breaking the law.

Do you think this is a good policy?

I would usually try to pick her up and flip her over so as not to kill the mood, 
then she'd laugh and be all like, "what do you want me to do?"
then I'd get frustrated and lose blood flow.

This is very important.  Is there a way to switch positions without using telepathy?

Conundrum

Recently I unexpectedly came into contact with a girl who is currently dating my ex-fiance. I'm the one who contacted her, but I had no clue who she was at the time... totally inadvertent. ETA: We're not friends, I don't know anything about her but her name. This was a random internet thing. She is over 3000 miles away.

He is a troubled guy - drug addict, compulsive liar, and abusive. After we broke up, he married a woman who divorced him when he nearly killed her.

She is understandably hostile toward me, and I know that any contact from me will probably seem like meddling, stalking, or an attempt to steal her man. However, given that he seems to be even more dangerous now than when we dated, I feel like I am ethically obligated to warn her that he is abusive. I figure even if she doesn't listen now, someday he may do something to scare her and she'll remember.

I have asked his other exes and my friends, and we can't come up with a consensus. Help me, TQC!

Should I warn her?

yes

srs question!

I was raised by my psycho grandma and my grandpa who I loved dearly. He died unexpectedly and under weird circumstances when I was 8 (most of my family believes she killed him) When he died I didn't know because she didn't want me to attend his funeral; my grandma told me he didn't want to see me anymore and that he moved out. She refuses to tell me where he was buried or even the date he died. There was no obituary. I have searched sites and called local funeral homes and nothing. I DO know he was buried somewhere and not cremated. He died either in 1992 or 1993. I have no way of contacting his sister because I don't know her name, he has no other living relatives, no children (he was my step-grandpa)

What would be the best way to find him? I really need closure.

I've had an arguement with the arrogant security guard that is meant to be securing etc the arcade in which the shop I manage is located.

Collapse )

The douche was incredibly rude and kept yelling and interrupting and twisting my words around, and just being an all-round piece of crap.

I've lodged a complaint with the security company and wrote a letter to all the businesses in the area to let them know and asking if they've had a similar problem with him before (which many have).

My Question is this - Is there anything else I can do, and is this complaint likely to have any effect?
This occurred in Auckland, New Zealand if that makes any difference.

My ex said to me last night, "I've been through so much stuff in the last couple of years, I think I have PSTD."

I have a three and a half hour long lecture today. Any tips to keep myself entertained? EDIT: There's no internet connection in my classroom. :(

Should I stop on at the drug store on the way and get some candy? I don't need the energy, I just want candy.

Er, why the FUCK do I keep getting my ass handed to me on Final Fantasy III? The DS one? There's some bird thing at the start in the castle guarding some really good sword (apparently) and it is FUCKING OWNING ME EVERY TIME. Seriously, I'm about to start like my 6th time trying to kill it. Fuck.

What was the last game you got frustrated at?

How far are you in whatever game you're playing? What game is it? Are you enjoying it?

And for some you losers that aren't geeks (ahem) what fragrance are you currently using?

Dear TQC, I have two questions for you today

* how long does it take for the ferry to go from New York to New Jersey?
* what do you think is better, being a part-time nurse or a full-time one, considering you are engaged to a billionaire and you still want to do something useful?

I found a cute item at a relative's house - it's a custom leather case containing a glass hip flask, little beakers, poker chips, cards,gin and bridge scoring pads, and dice. It's like a cocktails and games night to go. What would you call this item? What do you think its proper name is?

I'm sick. My throat hurts, but I don't have a fever or feel that bad. Could it be mono? I've already had 8 tylenol today, so I probably shouldn't take more... what else can I do to make it feel better?

I need some hair advice. I'm female with hair that comes just past my shoulders. When I got my hair cut a few weeks ago, I didn't know what to make of it. The stylist cut it in mostly all one length, except for a few face-frame tendrils. I'm used to having layers and after living with my hair for about two weeks, I hate the all-one-length, blunt-cut deal. It just doesn't look right. The only way it looks cute is pulled back in a half-ponytail and I don't want to wear it that way 24/7 :/

So my options:
1) Should I attempt cutting a layer into it myself? How do I go about doing that?
2) Should I wait it out a few weeks, then go get my hair cut by a professional? (I say "a few weeks" because I'm in the process of a huge move, plus I would rather get my money's worth by waiting a little longer.)

500 people gather together for an organized walk, to raise awareness and funding for horrible disease #213214. but 90 minutes before it's supposed to start, news comes out that it's been cured. so they knock on your door, explaining that they'd still like the exercise, but no longer have a cause. they've just got blank matching t-shirts and markers to make signs.

what will you have them raise awareness about?
