Hey guys,

I'm selling some stuff on eBay and having some technical issues.

http://cgi.ebay.ca/Brand-New-Blue-Black-eBay-Tote-Bag_W0QQitemZ180275720336QQihZ008QQcategoryZ18789QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Can anyone who has the time click on the above link and let me know the following?:

1) Under "Starting bid:", "Your maximum bid:", and "End time:" you should see "Shipping costs:". What appears to the right of "Shipping costs:"?
2) If "Calculate" appears, can you click "Calculate" and let me know whether the shipping calculator works (i.e. whether it gives you an amount of money)?
3) Do you live in Canada or elsewhere?

Edit (12:17 p.m.): I just fiddled around with the shipping settings...*crosses fingers that she solved the problem*.

Edit (12:56 p.m.): Okay, new question: How the heck do I fix this?!

When I click on "Revise your item" and scroll down to "Give buyers shipping details", this is what I see:

To those who have gauged their ears... have yours ever got infected?

I went up a size the other day and it hurt, but they were fine. Then today I woke up and they hurt like hell and now are pusing really bad. Is that normal? How would you care for it?

Will you show me a picture of your ears?

Poll #1239217 Weird questions involving money

For $10,000,000....would you travel to each McDonalds in America and eat an apple pie? Every single restaurant in continental America. However...you'll have to do it by segway. It will take months. Maybe years. You'll be given a certain card that, when shown, will get you a free apple pie. Everything else will come out of your own pocket. You don't get the money until you visit every McDonalds. Would you do it?

How big of a faux pas is it to go to a job interview with a bad sunburn?

Maybe I'm overthinking this, but I'm planning on going to two different open interview situations tomorrow. I got a bad burn two days ago and I'm still all red and peely. I feel a little weird going in looking like this, but I really need a job ASAP and don't want to wait a week for the next available interview. Thoughts?

(If it matters, I'm applying at Peet's Coffee and Disneyland. I'm pretty sure Disney won't be an issue, since they don't really judge by appearance during the interview process. I still feel kind of lame showing up extra-crispy, though.)

There's a yummy slice of cake sitting in the fridge. Should I eat it now or tomorrow?

Pros:
-It's cake and I believe it's calling my name
-I'm a little hungry and I'm going to stay up all night working on my essay so will probably need the energy

Cons:
-I'm only going to sit in front of the computer all night so all the fat will accumulate on my belly and I'm trying to lose about 10 pounds--I could eat something healthier instead
-If I eat it now I can't eat it tomorrow to celebrate the completion of my essay

I have an indoor cat that keeps getting out and he gets hurt. I need a good way to keep him away from the door so he stays inside. I've been looking online and there are ultrasonic deterrents and static mats and things that spray compressed air, prices varying from $20 to hundreds of dollars. I have no idea what to get, what will work, or what is worth the price. Would someone help me with this decision?

Take Shelter

So does the expression "take shelter" actually mean "rent a house, hotel or an apartment" nowadays or what? Just wondering. Given the consumerist attitude, I wouldn't be a bit surprised.

Obviously, the definition of "masculine" or "feminine" varies from person to person, and some may argue such ideals exist only in our heads. Nevertheless, most of us have our own ideas of what constitutes "masculine" or "feminine," and I would like anyone who answers this question to take that into account.

1. Do you think there's something attractive about men who look like women?

2. What about women who look like men?

---

1. Normally I'm not attracted to effeminate men, but I think some can look very nice. If he's overly feminine, I'm not really interested, but if it's sort of the androgynous style, I think that can be attractive. I do prefer men who are on the "masculine" side, though.

2. It depends. If their features are masculine, I don't find that particularly attractive. But "tomboy"-looking women--petite, small breasts, short hair, and in men's clothing--I think are very attractive. And I'm normally not into women. :p

TL;DR

3. Do you love puppies?

ticketmaster woes

If you go here and click on Girl Talk you immediately get this. In my experience when something is sold out Ticketmaster still makes you fill out how many tickets you want, and get the capthca right, and then they tell you there aren't any tickets available.

Do you think this means it's already sold out? Or do you think there actually will be tickets available later? There aren't any tickets on ebay for it yet so that makes me think it's not sold out, and the venue's website doesn't list it as sold out. I'll be really sad if I miss this =[

Aliens come down to visit planet Earth and find you wandering around. They take you up to their spaceship (and because of cultural differences, they do not ask permission of course. Random abduction is more acceptable in their society... so you'll have to forgive them)... once you're up there, sitting alone in a room, waiting for your anal probe and pondering what exactly you'll tell the nice people at the National Enquirer, the aliens step into the room.

"Greetings, pink fleshy Earth thing," they say. "Don't worry, we're not sticking anything up your butt, we recently discovered the Internet and goatse explained everything we really wanted to know. We actually have some questions about your human society we want answered!"

You agree, and they ask the following questions.

1. "We have heard of this 'Jesus' fellow... from the pictures we have seen, he looks like nothing more than a glowing hippy. Will you please explain why he's so popular?"

2. "Through discovering this human device 'television', we have learned that your world's greatest pleasure is watching fellow humans stand there on camera singing terribly and being ridiculed. Why is this?"

And lastly,

3. "All of the Internet and television is a little overwhelming and while it answers some of our questions, it is overwhelming. What would you say are some of your culture's most important qualities? What is it about this planet that makes it worthy for alien races to not destroy?"

So...

How do you answer? (the funnier the better... these aliens have a surprisingly good sense of humor)

For all you married people! If you had people fly in from out of town for your wedding, what did you DO with them all weekend?

The wedding will take like 3 hours, maybe, at lunchtime on Saturday. So then there's Saturday night and all of Sunday to get through. I feel terrible that we'll have invited all these people to come, and then just abandon them, but we can't possibly cram everyone (20 or so people) into our house and make small talk all day >_

I had an interview last week. The person called me back yesterday around 3:30 but I missed the call. Their message said they wanted to discuss a position with me. I called them back right away and got a voice mail and left a message. I also called back around 4:45 but didn't leave a message. I haven't heard back yet.

Should I call them back again today or am I getting stalkerish since I did leave one voice mail yesterday?

Hair disaster

Due to a tl;dr series of misfortunes involving repeated applications of hair dye, I now have hair that has roughly the texture of cotton candy, and it is sitting on top of my head.

Is there anything I can put on it to make it look more like hair and less like fried fluff? It's pretty short, and is about to get even shorter after my visit to Supercuts today.

Should I just shave it off and tell people I've joined a cult?

Will you tell me stories of your hair mishaps? Bonus points for pictures.

ETA: I know you'll all be thrilled to know that slathering on a ton of conditioner and leaving it for a while, plus having Hair Guy wield his scissors, fixed a lot of the problem. My bangs are too short and since that was the part that was most damaged, I still have a small clump of dry looking hair at the front, but overall it looks tons better and I'm no longer convinced that people are pointing and laughing.

Poll #1239531 Pigs in a blanket

In some unusual turn of events, you end up in the mountains hiking with a bunch of random hikers. Among them is John Goodman. There's snow all around you and the lot of you are trudging along, miles from civilization. Half of you are carrying camping supplies, the rest are carrying food. Suddenly, there's an avalanche, and you're separated from the rest. It's just you and John Goodman, holed up in a cave. Both of you are soaked to the bone. Luckily, he has a sleeping bag. "We'll have to strip down to our bare asses and huddle together to avoid frostbite", he says, as he hops out of his wet duds into the only sleeping bag: a single. What do you do?

Get naked. Cuddle with Goodman. Anything to fight off the chill

One for all the travelers out there

Hay TQC, I haz a questionz.

I'm taking a short trip tomorrow that requires I get on a plane and I'm pretty much aware of the basic rules (no big bottles of shampoo or other liquid etc) but I can't really find a good answer on these two points - so a little help maybe?

1.) I read on the TSA site that prescription meds are allowed, but that they have to be declared at security; is this right? Do I have to pull the bottles out of my backpack and show them or is it okay as long as it doesn't come up?

2.) Are batteries allowed in a carry-on? I'm not talking about the "it'll explode if you look at it cross-eyed" type of batteries as much as the standard AAA batteries needed to power a faux!pod. Is it another case of let them know you have it or is it better to just let it come up?


Thanks in advance for the help, TQC!

I'm finally living on my own for the first time. I'm trying to be as economical as possible when it comes to cooking. Do you know of any first-timers websites on tips to build a pantry of things you will use up before they expire in a collection of recipes? For example, if you buy eggs, bread, milk and cheese, you can do all sorts of combinations - grilled cheese, french toast, poached eggs, scrambled eggs, an omelette.

Most of the websites I'm coming across give the obvious pantry list, but don't really give me some creative ideas of what I can whip up with everything. If it helps, I consider myself a pretty capable cook; I'm just not efficient at coming up with ideas of things to throw together.

How agonizing are mosquito bites on the bottom of your foot?

When you have a bite or an itch, which do you say: "I need to itch it" or "I need to scratch it"? I've used the latter all my life, but when I got to college I heard many people use the first. A bite itches, so you scratch it. Right?

Any tips for writing a bangin' letter for a sex shop?

1. If I used a recipe for chocolate chip cookies and just left out the chocolate chips, they wouldn't turn out as mutant death cookies, would they? Surely the chocolate chips aren't integral to the recipe(?).

2. What's the last cartoon you watched?

3. Did you have a favorite stuffed animal/toy as a kid? What was it? Do you still have it?

Is there a (children's) movie or a (kid's) tv show that made you anxious or scared of when you were a child (excluding horror-themed ones)?

The reason I ask this is because my brother's kids are watching All Dogs Go To Heaven downstairs, and although I don't remember the full story of it, I remember bits and pieces that make me feel really nervous to watch it... there was also another movie about these little bugs that were possessed and that freaked me out for a long time.

1. Would you partake in an orgy if you knew that that one person you have lusted over forever was involved, but not knowing the other participants? You do not have the option of just being selective; once you dive in, there will be penis and vagina everywhere, with sexual preference taken in to account (no strange insertions for those that like to keep their holes pristine).

2. You're a super villain. You're allowed to destroy one historical landmark, erasing one of man kinds greatest endeavors. What would it be?

3. You have to fuck an animal to save yourself and your loved ones, but you get the choice of species. What species? edit Humans do not count unless you are not one.

Where do I go to register to vote? I tried googling but I didn't want to give away info online if it wasn't legit. Can you do it at a library or post office...?

Have you ever filled out an absentee ballot?

1. I'm trying to lose about 5lbs by my birthday which is at the end of this month & possibly 25lbs by Christmas/New Year's, as HEALTHY as possible. I need some foods (ie. lettuce/salads) that I can eat a TON of that won't cause me to bloat up like a balloon! (: So what do you eat when you're trying to lose weight? (cuz I've been +2 lbs, -1 lb, back and forth with different weight plateauing/fluctuating).

2. Favorite books? (I'm trying to get back into reading again)

3. Worst dining experience ever?

My dad just gave me $30 to use for a taxi tonight because he is convinced the Bowery subway station is dangerous and I will be shot/stabbed/robbed/beheaded if I'm there alone late at night. I took the money, and said I would take a taxi, but I'm actually going to take the subway like I always do.

Am I really that much safer taking a taxi than I am waiting around in the always-empty Bowery subway station late at night?

What should I do with the $30? What would you do with it? I'm definitely spending some of it at Crumbs.

If someone tells you they are "really getting into those vampire romance novels", what books would you think they were talking about?

The only vampire series I'm aware of are the Anne Rice books, which have some erotica in them, but I don't think they are the ones being referred to.

Who is a celebrity that everyone seems to be crazy about, but you just don't see what the big fuss is?

Brad Pitt has never impressed me very much.  I don't even think he's that attractive. But then again, I may not have seen his best movies.

Itunes.

When you download a new version of itunes, do you need to install Last.fm again?

I don't really understand why you would, But it's just that mine hasn't been updated since I updated my itunes :(
