I have some exceptionally loud neighbors gallivanting around outside my window for no apparent reason. If I'm not mistaken, they're screaming about cake. Or pudding. Something like that. Anyhow, I was just about to nod off and they're making it somewhat impossible. What shall I do to quite them down?

Ladies, if there was a magical pair of pants, would you share them with your 3 bestest friends?
If there was a magical pair of traveling panties that would bring you and your 3 closest girlfriends together and would make you far more successful in life and love, providing you took turns wearing them, would you do it?
You're having a tough week, and your friend's been having some good luck recently. When things look bleak for you, she unzips her pants and offers them to you, saying that it was instrumental in making her life right, and she'd like you to wear them and get lucky too. Would you do it?
The pants in question, according to my sources (some girl whose sister saw the movie), wearing the pants makes good things happen. If lucky things happen in life and love whenever you wear these pants, what qualities or history do you think these pants have?
Like, quick like a march, instrumental and orchestrated, sung diva-style [therefore making it 10 minutes long], or badass Jimi Hendrix style, etc?
Other peeps: Is there a certain style you like your national anthem to be played/sung?

So, far, all the fans that I have met of the books have been female.
If you are a fan of "Twilight" could you please say so as well as state your gender?
If you are a guy who likes "Twilight", can you please tell me why?
If you are a girl and you want to see the "Twilight" movie when it comes out, how would you convince your boyfriend to go see it?

I have before me one brand new 12 oz./375 mL bottle of Canada's finest crap, Wiser's Speshul Blendz. My question is not really whether or not to drink, but rather how drunk I should get tonight (seeing as I've already started supping on my first drink).
( Collapse )
So, on a scale of 1-10, 1 being Sober as a Church Mouse and 10 being Holy Fuck I Can't Feel My Face or Outer Extremities, how far should I go?
Also, if your S.O. called you at 4 AM blasted out of their face and could only mumble/slur about how much they hated your voicemail message, what would you do?
ETA: a fucking bug flew into drink No. 2[now on No. 4]. and i just sent 5 badly spelled text megssages to by boyfriend. being drunk is AWESOME.
do you know of a good way to magnify the detail on a photo without making it blurry?

Do you have any house rules that most other people don't implement?
I was just bitten 5 times on my legs while sitting at my desk at work. I found the mosquito and killed it, but now my bites are getting bigger every time I look at them and puffing up, and obviously itching like crazy.
There is a small pharmacy up the block. I called my boss, and she said I could go there and pick up whatever I need. The thing is, what do I need?!
What will make the mosquito bites stop growing, swelling, and itching? Help me!
Good morning, this is your body just popping in to tell you that you are pregnant! Now what?
has anyone here ever been in a major natural disaster?
If so, how did it affect you? (don't need to post if it is too upsetting to talk about it)
I have, it is described in this wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canberra_bushfires .
I didnt loose anything in those fires, but it was still very scarey. I remember that I was watching a documentary talking about an outbreak of a disease somewhere in the US a while back (cant remember what it was), and that at the end was talking about how there could always be another disease that could have major effects (this was around the time when the SARS outbreak was still happening, so that line at the end of the show stuck in my mind).
At the end of it, I looked outside and noticed that the sky was far too dark for the time of day it was (just after midday in the middle of summer, and it looked dark enough to be sunset). Upon turning on a radio, I learnt that it was because of a major bushfire that was in canberra. We spent a whole lot of time doing the proper stuff like filling the bathtub with water, watering down the gutters to protect against embers and stuff. I remember that I was inside turning things off at the power points off when we lost the electricity. Thankfully we still had a phone that was able to be powered by the phone lines.
It got real scarey when the fire was climbing the opposite side of mount taylor (fires climb hills covered in eucalyptus trees very quickly), it sounded like a jet engine's roar. There were also sparks at times that were either from power poles, or from static electricity in the smoke. It was very scarey when it reached the top of the hill as we coud see it from our house, but thankfully, that was when it started to die out, as firestorms have difficulty going downhill.
We had the car ready and waiting in case we had to leave (though my mother has said that the experiance that we had made her say that we would have already left if she had known the stuff about how the fires act), but we didnt need to go. The sky started to get a little lighter just before the sun went down (there was enough smoke that you could look at where the sun was directly). Our only information was from worried family calling to make sure we were ok, and our raido after it was over, and a small battery powered tv. The next day, a number of people from some of the houses near us had lunch at a niegbours house (just as a getting to know everyone thing). there was also the owner from a nearby corner store giving out all the icecreams from his store as they were already in a state where they would not be able to be sold even if they froze again right away.
I went with my mum to get some ice to keep our fridge and freezer cold, but it was not needed as power was being restored when we were out.
So all in all, that day was one of the scarriest in my life.

Srs and non-srs welcome. :D (Especially srs, though.)
From wiki: Camel Crush is a customizable cigarette that contains a menthol capsule within the filter. By squeezing the filter before or while smoking the cigarette, a small blue capsule is crushed and releases chemical into your filter, transforming a regular cigarette into a menthol one in a matter of moments.
Do you think this a good or bad idea?
I work at a deli and there's ads for it there. The main group that has expressed interest seem barely old enough to smoke which I'm sure is Camel's ploy.
I also hate how I'm curious to try one.

Doesn't it seem like people in here just can't seem to figure that out?
What if I put a question mark after something that isn't really a question?
Would that count?
Would that just make it a make it a question?
Will you tell what's been going on in TQC, in the form of a short fairy-tale-like story? Bonus points if it's complete bullshit and you mention TQCers by name. :D
I'm going to my boyfriends sisters 8th birthday tomorrow- do I bring her a card or a present or what? I don't know her well and I recently bought her a present for no reason.
I've been taking a bunch of social justice and community studies classes for GEs, and if I read one more paper on race/gender/sexuality/class in America I'm going to have to choke a bitch. These writers take pages to say something that could be said in a paragraph. In a sentence, even! Gah, give me graphs! Numbers! Data, dammit! DATA!!
What subjects made you want to choke a bitch?
how does this make you feel? did you purposely put anything off thinking "well, we're all gonna get black holed tomorrow..."?
is there any particular reason that edwards admitted he had an affair on the same day that bernie mac died, the hardons collided, russia continued it's occupation of georgia, AND the olympics kick off the first big day? what else happened today that i forgot?

This fall, I start college and will have one class up to three hours a day, and two/three one-hour classes (lectures) each day. So, tell me, tqc:

2. How did you get through them, especially if they were really boring?
3. What kind of mental preparation should I go through to get ready for it?
4. Tell me, dear friends, will I be able to stay focused for three hours in one sitting?
Table schmable. I'd grab a fried pizza pocket and a can of Hawaiian Punch and find a sunny spot to sit with my friends from band.
2. My fiance is really, really getting into the Olympic women's beach volleyball game. Is he becoming a sports nut, or did his testosterone level just skyrocket?
And what is the longest amount of time you've had between establishing a mutual understanding of sexual interest and actually sleeping together?
Any interesting details to the choice of time length worth sharing?

Now - my dilemma - my friend can't remember the name of the actress, except for 'Katherine'. It could be a 'Catharine' or variations on the spelling.
My friend is pretty determined that it ISN'T Catherine Deneuve (believe me, that was my first guess... with a young Helen Mirren being the second guess) but there's a significant difference in the bottom lip/eyebrow/eye of this picture to Helen AND Catherine Deneuve...
Any movie buffs know who she is?
Bonus points if you can find a link to this picture online - so I can PROVE to my friend who this is a picture of...
Does anyone know if the game is going to be replayed in its entirety?
Would you ever eat cheddar cheese dipped in peanut butter?
What about chocolate covered garlic?
2. Why ain't there any pink lemonades?

A) I'm not all that anxious to get a boyfriend. I enjoy being single.
B) I think it's a little strange that someone's mom is trying to set them up -- what if I say yes to being set up, and then it turns out the guy has no interest in someone like me at all, it's just the mom butting into his life? (Also, I'm pretty sure the guy just broke up with some girl).
C) I'm not sure the lady at work 'knows' who I really am -- she knows I'm a student and that I work hard, she doesn't know that I still live with my parents for various reasons, that I'm not financially comfortable right now because I am a student, or that the quiet front I put up at work isn't at all my personality once someone really gets to know me.
D) I don't want to flat out say 'no', because that might create a conflict just as easily as if I said yes and it didn't work out.
What should I do guys? What would you do in this situation?
I blame the hours spent on google. That'll mess with your mind bigtime...
:: exits out quietly stage right ::
:: whispers from the sidelines: Why is there no reverse search on google? it would make my life WAY easier, and save the carpel tunnel syndrome developing in my hands... ::
"HIDE YOUR WOMEN" one of the men shouts, his hands tightly clenching the chewed remains of what apparently was his wife, "HIDE YOUR WOMEN FROM THIS MONSTERS. THEY'RE ONLY AFTER THE WOMEN." The video cuts out shortly after that, as they cut back to the stern-looking reporters, who then go on to tell you about some puppies. An update, 15 minutes later, informs you that these lesbian zombies are gaining in their ferocity, and will surely consume the entire city before dark.
Bearing this information in mind, will you:
1- being a woman, allow yourself to succumb to the lesbian zombies?
2- regardless of what you are, blow them up all Survival Horror movie style?
3- use Dark Charizard to cleanse your city?
4- double-click the power cord?
5- pretend to be a zombie, only to plant a bomb at their base, and blow them up?
6- kill yourself?
7- stop taking drugs with your coffee?
Someone just posted something about "independence" and I actually saw "independance" because I know so many people who spell it that way.
