non-egg eggs?

I'm allergic to eggs, but I want to eat them! Are there any egg substitutes that aren't made with eggs THAT TASTES LIKE EGGS? And I mean for like breakfast tacos or scrambled eggs, not baking.

fucking christ. Tofu does not taste like eggs. I *DID* google it.

You wake up naked. Who's the worst person to find naked in bed with you?

Petting zoo animal
Dead hooker
SO's parent
Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh (an oxycontin threesome)
Homeless person (they haven't showered since they came home with you)
600 lbs. man
Your best friend's SO
Flava Flav

You've been chatting up this person online. They're of the gender you're most attracted to, and the pictures you were sent were really really sexy. You talk on the phone and you guys click. You decide to meet in person. You guys agree to meet at an Olive Garden, and they say that they'll be wearing a green jacket and white hat. You show up on that day, and peer inside. You see someone in a green jacket and white hat. Which of these scenarios would be the most disappointing?

They're of the gender they said they were, except they weigh around 400lbs. Obviously not the person in the photograph
They look really good, except...they're of the opposite sex they said they were. You've been fooled by a crafty transsexual pre-op or something

You see this person through the window. They're carrying a small present, and keep checking their watch impatiently. You're not sure what to do. The person inside is starting to look really sad, assuming you stood them up. What do you do?

I don't want to hurt him/her. I walk in and have dinner. We talk about how fucking deceitful they were
This is too weird. I indeed stand them up. I go back home and block their number/chat name
Keep on watching. I hope they cry.
Honestly, this change is a bonus. I'm even more turned on by them

I'm looking into getting a new MP3 player but am swamped by the options. What kind do you have and why would you recommend it?

strange things are afoot at the circle k...

Another foot was found washed up on the Washington shoreline this past Monday. So far all the feet have been discovered while still wearing sneakers.

1. I ask you, what does the killer or killers have against overpriced athletic footwear?

2. Knowing this, if you lived in that area where the feet are washing onto shore, would you switch to sandals and/or dress shoes?

3. With the first foot found in Canada and having someone cut another person's head off while riding a bus last week, I have to ask what is currently going on Canada that is making people go mental?

On a different non-psycho killer note;

4. Is there a band or song out there that puts you to sleep, if so, who or what is it? And I mean, actual sleep. You listen to it or them and you physically nod off to slumber land.

For me, I can't listen to Wilco at night or I am out like a light by the third song. Weird.

I'm going to get a new phone. I want either the Sony Ericsson W580i or the LG Shine.

I'm going to use it for phone calls, texting, and listening to music (I don't have a separate MP3 player). I'll also use the camera and probably will use it to check my email.

Anyone have either of these phones? What do you think of it? Or any other AT&T compatible phone that you like that would fit my needs?

There was a giant wasp on my bedroom curtains a few minutes ago.  I got a flyswatter and was going to kill it, but it was just crawling and I thought I wouldn't be able to get at it while it ws on the curtains.  It crawled down the curtain, along the top of the laundry hamper, flew for .5 seconds, and disappeared.  I don't know if it's in my hamper (which has 3 sections), on my bedroom floor, under my bed, IN my bed, etc.  Should I try to look for it?  I'm fucking terrified it might sting me or one of my cats.

Time to admit i'm retarded...

i feel like a complete idiot for asking this, but how do i wrote HTML?

i always see questions here where i'll be like "fuck, i know this awesome picture that'll help", but then have no idea how to make it work.

i tried <img> (insert URL) </img>, and it just makes it a link to that URL. I've been afraid to ask lest i look like i'm from the stone age, but at this point fuck it.

in a related note, are there any questions you've been afraid to ask due to similar reasons as this? have you asked them yet? will you ask them here?

A friend of mine is going to Nicaragua for a vacation...I wanted to make up a little going away gift for her. I want to add stuff that she'll actually need while she's there, but nothing that's going to weigh her down. What do you think she would need? So far, I can only think of hand sanitizer (even though I don't use it, google suggested it) and those travel sized toilet paper things. Do you have any suggestions?

How does your school (if you're in school) go about listing your textbooks? Do your professors email you and tell you what they'll be using?

My school shows what you need through the bookstore website, but they don't give you a full title or isbn because they want you to buy from them. I have to drive out there just to write down the isbn and titles so that I can order them online. Last year, I went by the titles and I had three of the wrong textbooks. blah

ps. sorry for the gift question, I did try google first.

I bought a new 4.0 GB memory card awhile ago on Amazon...and I never used it because I never needed it.

I took the card out of my camera to check to see if it was locked, and it wasn't.

I have a feeling I got ripped off, which I do. What ever shall I do, TQC?

My friends and I are going camping tomorrow night at a little nature preserve that's on a small island off the coast only accessible by boat. I haven't been camping since I was little and I really don't enjoy nature/sleeping outside/mysterious wildlife (crabs, snakes, wild boars, etc.), but I really want to go with my friends.

Any advice so I can avoid disaster and actually enjoy myself?

So, I met this girl at orientation a month ago for school who asked me to be her room mate in a three bedroom/two bath house within walking distance of the school. I asked if anyone was going to take the third bedroom and she said she would rather have it as a study and that way we wouldn't have to share bathrooms. I was fine with this. Now, less than two weeks before we sign the papers, she asks in text if it is ok for her boyfriend to move in. He lives almost 40 minutes away from the school and won't even be going to this school, he just can't live without her. (Gag) Anyway, I was rather pissed by this and responded with "I don't think that is a good idea. He would be a distraction and I just wouldn't feel comfortable with it." Now she says, "Well, we'll just wait a little while and see how things go from there. I haven't said anything to my parents yet, so please don't tell them."

Would you also be pissed by this?
What would you do?
Should I tell her parents if she continues with this thought even after knowing how I feel?
Should I still plan to move in with her, or just find a one bedroom apartment?
Any other advice?

I know for a fact that her parents would not be happy if they knew. I've already gone off to my boyfriend (who I will be moving 40 minutes away from and am not asking if he can move in) and my mom about this. My mom plans to say something, and I'm not going to stop her. Would you? She is going to make it discreet like, "So no one else will be moving in, right?"

I have a cell phone and ipod that I charge regularly, both less than a year old, that I now plug in to an extension cord instead of directly in to the wall.

As soon as I moved here and started doing it a week or so ago, they're always needing a charge.

It was a short aline, but a very girly aline, and it was fantastic. I never had to straighten it and it ALWAYS laid right. Ive tried to recreate so many times (WITH THE PICTURES OF THE ORIGINAL HAIRCUT) and I cant do it, and neither can the girl who did it in the first place. :(

What's your favorite Twilight Zone episode?

I like "A Stopover in a Quiet Town" - the one where a husband and wife wake up in a strange town with no people, where nothing works, the trees are fake, etc. and then it turns out they're in a model town for a giant child. The most unnerving part of the episode is when they get on the train... and it just brings them back to the same place.
"Time Enough at Last" is really good too, but really depressing.

Mine was a hooker. She was actually a lot of fun, but she freaked me out. Before we moved in together, she asked me if I wanted to work for her escort service because I was "cute enough." Thanks. When I came home from my minimum wage job every night, she would be sitting on the living room floor counting hundred dollar bills out into piles. She liked to call 911 for every little thing, too, and we had cops over to investigate "strange noises" and crap, at her request, all the time. It made me nervous.
