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?

Tattle of course. Didn't you learn? That solves everything.

Hang out the window and yell right back at them (maybe about ice cream or creme brulee)
13(38.2%)
Call the cops. It's similar to tattling, only with more authority.
5(14.7%)
Suck it up and ignore them. They'll shut up eventually, right?

Dynamite.

Give them cake. Obviously that's the key to quieting them down.

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?

Americans: How do you prefer the national anthem to be played?

Like, quick like a march, instrumental and orchestrated, sung diva-style [therefore making it 10 minutes long], or badass Jimi Hendrix style, etc?

another Twilight question...but of a different sort...

After reading this secret on Fandom Secrets today, I have a couple questions;

Do guys like "Twilight"?

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?

Hay TQC.

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?

I'm looking for a poem I read about six months ago, and it's driving me absolutely crazy because I can't remember the title and anything about it expect for the theme and a summary of the last line. If someone knows of a better community to ask this, please link me!

Anyway, it's a religious-themed poem, and the last line approximates to "and watched the first murderer be born upon the earth," referring to Cain.

If anybody knows the name of this poem... I swear. I'll serve you forever.

So you go out on a date with someone you haven't met in person before. You get on really well and have a nice evening. A couple of days later, she emails you saying she had a great time, it was lovely to meet you, and asks when you are free to go out again. You reply saying you're away for the weekend, then no further plans. Then almost 2 weeks passes and you hear no more from her.

Dr. TQC,

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!

dear TQC,

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.

Its the Newest Cigarette Technology Since Tomacco

Have you heard about Camel Crush cigarettes?

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.

Why won't the printer print using only black ink? Or alternatively, why do the colored ink cartridges have to be filled in order for me to print a B&W document?

It had to be pointed out to me before I accepted it myself but apparently the United States falls behind a bit in the sexual arena. Outside of our borders, what is and what isn't considered to be sex is not so limited. Whereas within, Americans largely view physical pleasure not involving intercourse as not being sex.

1) Do you think sex absolutely must have intercourse as a necessary component?
2) If you don't, then if lesbians aren't having sex what exactly are they doing?
3) Why do you suppose people don't view cunnilingus & fellatio as being sex?

Leaving me with no money and a fucking overdraft fee becuase i bought something and they had already taken out the money without my knowledge.

So should i sue the shit out of them or what?

There is no one i can get ahold of until monday, i researched a little online and technically they had to give me my money three days after they fired me. It has now been 8 days and i have NOTHING.

What would you do in my situation? I need to go grocery shopping..bad..

I like a young Tom Hanks. For example, I LOVE Big and I liked Turner & Hooch.

Which of these Tom Hanks movies from that period, that I don't think I've seen, would you recommend? Or recommend against?

# The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990) .... Sherman McCoy
# Joe Versus the Volcano (1990) .... Joe Banks
# The 'burbs (1989) .... Ray Peterson
# Punchline (1988) .... Steven Gold
# Dragnet (1987) .... Pep Streebeck
# Every Time We Say Goodbye (1986) .... David Bradley
# Nothing in Common (1986) .... David Basner
# Volunteers (1985) .... Lawrence Whatley Bourne III
# The Man with One Red Shoe (1985) .... Richard Harlan Drew
# Bachelor Party (1984) .... Rick Gassko


Or are there any other daggy-but-great movies from this period (not necessarily starring Tom Hanks) that you'd recommend?

Thanks!
Oh hay thar

office

I just started watching The Office (US). Just finished 1st season last night and I'm not that impressed. Does it get better? I just don't see why everyone loves it. It's funny at times but meh.

Can you not tell it's a question if there is no question mark?
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?

Care?

TQC, I finally have an Internet connection at home! I'm BACK!! I've missed you!

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

Damn, how do you humanities people do it?

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?

The Hardon Hadron collider opened up and we didn't die today. so now our hardons hadrons can collide and we don't have to worry about black holes!

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?

also, why is TQC fucking crazy today?

Three-hour lectures in college

Inspired by the block classes question:
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:

1. What were/are the longest classes (one subject) you have ever had, and how long were they?
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?

1. If TQC was a high-school cafeteria, what table would you be sitting at?

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?

What is the shortest amount of time you have ever had with someone between establishing a mutual understanding of sexual interest and actually sleeping together?

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?

who is this actress?

A friend of mine was recently told she looks like the actress in the picture behind the cut. This actress is in her late 50s early 60s now, and my friend has been told she looks like her in her 30s... She was told NOT to look at recent pics, but older pics of this actress...

Collapse )

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...

TIA

The Olympics

Tomorrow (Sunday), there is going to be a basketball game with the U.S. and China. However, it's on at freaking 7:15 A.M. PST, and I don't want to wake up that early.

Does anyone know if the game is going to be replayed in its entirety?

What's the strangest food combination you've ever had? Was it tasty?

Would you ever eat cheddar cheese dipped in peanut butter?

What about chocolate covered garlic?

what would you do?

A nice lady at work, a lady I have a decent work friendship with, wants to set me up with her son (she thinks I'd be perfect for him). Problems?

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?

You wake up one morning, and, while drinking your morning coffee turn on your favorite local news station to get up to date on the information that has passed while you were drunkenly sleeping off what was sure to be the most regrettable night of the past five days. Following the weather, you learn of some breaking news. There is an outbreak of zombies that has taken over your town. Interestingly enough, there is no reports of any other town, apparently all communication is down and they're left with only garbled messages of panic-stricken men and women.

"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?

Are there some words you're so used to seeing people misspell that when you see them you automatically picture them misspelled even if they're spelled correctly?

Someone just posted something about "independence" and I actually saw "independance" because I know so many people who spell it that way.
No laughing matter

I seriously need some help, advice, pearls of wisdom, etc.
Its my first year of college. My parents saved up $0 for my future education, my mom is seperated from my dad and well, she is the one "supporting" me through college with her nurse salary. 
Anyway, I'm going to UTSA my first year and its ALL on grants and loans. Only problem is.....we stupidly waited too fucking long to accept them so they wont get COMPLETELY processed and dispursed until after August; which is PAST the first deadline for payments.
So, I get a letter in the mail from Austin saying that I have been denied for a loan that I applied for. That fucking sucks. 
Not only do I not have enough money with the loans and grants, but I got denied from one that could have possbily saved my ass.
Ok so.....another thing. I'm dorming. That payment is due BEFORE AUGUST 22nd!! And that's like almost $500 in the bag. My mom said she'd come up with that on time. Good.
I STILL NEED $5,000 BEFORE AUGUST 19th!!!!!!!!!!!! What the fuck do I do? How the fuck do I get it? Can I set up some monthly payment plan and only have to pay for the first month before Aug 19?!! I know there's that emergency payment loan that the college offers but its so messy to deal with and that is seriously my DEAD LAST option.
Not only am I stressing out BIG TIME but this all sucks so bad because I wish it were easier. Or, perhaps it is EASY and I'm just one of the few that gets totally overwhelmed with college-payment-money-business shit.

Sometime last night someone tried to break into the store I work at by trying to break a window.  But all that happened was the glass cracked.  After telling the owner he told me to call the police and report it.  I called the non emergency number.  My co-workers (who didn't even know there was such a number, btw) think this is so hilarious and were making fun of me non stop.

Why is the fact that I called the non emergency number so funny?
