There is this movie with three sisters, one is a goody goody, one is a slut and one is kind of in between. They are rich and there are these two poor brothers who are in love with them. All I remember is the boys' mom dies. Does anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?

You are on an island ruled by a group of invisible humans who talk to you via a PA system. They only become visable when sexually aroused. In order to be able to leave the island, you must have sex with one of them. You can only choose based on what they've said to you via PA when you are on the island. Who do you choose?
"I wish you all could see the fur on my fox suit!"
"Second star to the right, and straight on till morning!"
"I will give you $300 if you let me cum on your foot."
"I think Bush should run for a third term."
"I lost my copy of Dianetics, god damn it."
"Can I pee on you R Kelly style?"
All this person does is scream
I'd rather die
On this island, you have to select one celebrity from a list to hear talk...movies, comedic acts, and music. You have to choose one celebrity to overhear for the next few week, 24/7. Who do you choose?
I don't eat mayonaise. I don't eat mayo, or Miracle Whip, or anything like that. I just HATE the taste, smell and texture. It's slimy and tastes horrible to me.
My fiance (Of three weeks, w00t!) and I went out to dinner with his mom. I mentioned I'm not a huge fan of 'kraut, but I'll eat it if someone gives it to me. His mom went "LOLOLOL (laughing.) yeah you don't eat food that us NORMAL people do!!! LOLOLOL"
Now, normally I love this woman. But seriously wtf. I'll even TRY stuff that has mayo, cause I know sometimes you can't taste it, and they've gone out of their way to GIVE me food with mayo, without telling me. To see if I can taste it. And always seem surprised I can. =/ x 1000 AGAIN. she doesn't like STRAWBERRIES. she's not allergic, she just hates them, and i find that so weird. but i was raised polite, so i don't say shit to her. just to livejournal. :D
1) so tcq, what is the number one thing you won't eat?
2) how do you react when people make fun of you for it?
3) what's the one food you could eat everyday for the rest of your life without getting tired of it?
1) mayo. like i said, i'll try stuff with it in it, but i just don't like it. i'm also from OK, but live in TX. most people prefer mustard here anyways.
2) i just kinda laugh at first, cause i know everyone has something they don't like. then i get pissed if they just HAVE to comment on it each time.
if you had a baby tomorrow, what would you name it?? i've been thinking about names all day and i wanna know what everyone else likes. i've got boys names picked out for a mile long list so i focused on girl names today..
i'll comment with mine later after i see what you all say =)
I've decided to quit my job. I have no other job lined up. I want to pick up unemployment until I find something else. I was told you can only collect unemployment if you are laid off---is this true? And if so, is this true in New York State, and how do they know if you left your job willingly or not?
My husband and I are going to Nashville this weekend. Rather than putting our stuff together into one big suitcase and checking it in, we think we're each going to use smaller suitcases and use them as a carry on. Either way, we'll both have messenger bags with us.
Besides the whole 'liquids in a baggie' that's still going on, do you see this posing a problem at all?
As an example, some one finds out they have a life-long disease... as in, permanent, so they call it such. But then later they're completely cured. So was the disease EVER permanent, or was it always temporary and they were just mistaken?
(My personal answer was that in that situation, the disease was temporary the whole time and was only mistakenly called permanent and that it wasn't "permanent for that time period"... yes... this debate went on for an hour... :P)
Recently, two male wrestlers at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln were dismissed from the team for posing nude on a gay pornography website. They were cited as having broken Rule 1 of the student athlete handbook: Always present a positive image; don't do anything to embarrass yourself, the team, your family or the university.
Is it a double standard or homophobia to dismiss amateur male athletes for posing nude? Should female athletes, such as cheerleaders, be dismissed for posing nude in Playboy?
Ok so I have no one else right now to ask this, and I'm stressing out; hopefully someone can help me.
About a week ago my car began to overheat, after putting water in it, it was fine for about 3 days. It began to overheat again, my dad looked at it; couldn't find a leak but the radiator cap was old, and wasn't sealing well so we replaced it, and so far all has been going well. This was exactly one week ago today, and my car has been fine.
however I am possibly the most paranoid person you will ever meet, and am now constantly watching and overanalyzing my heat gage in my car. Today I noticed that it was going up (which is normal I know), but it went past the half-way point... what is normal for a car, is it beginning to overheat on me again, or is it fine and I'm being paranoid? Below is a picture of about where the arm went in my gage....can anyone help me?
Has anyone been in a toxic relationship that brought you down over and over again? (For example an alcoholic/mentally abusive boyfriend who makes you feel as though you'll never be worthy of him, but somehow you keep finding yourself crawling back into the situation)
I've been on and off with this guy for about 3 years now, and I obviously understand I'd be better off without him - but I guess I just have a personality flaw that leaves me wanting to call him. Things will be amazing one moment, and then he turns around and leaves me feeling like absolute shit about myself.
If you've gotten over it, how long did it take you? Did you "relapse"?
Do any of you know anything (from personal experience or otherwise) about transitioning FROM being a vegetarian and reintegrating meat into your diet? My husband wants to do this, and I know you can't just go out and start eating steaks (not if you dislike throwing up, anyway); it has to start small. But I'm wondering if there's anything out there with maybe a good timeline to follow as far as upgrading one's meat intake.
Gotta love google. They have ONE article about a guy's frustration for being unable to find info on transitioning FROM vegetarianism. Everything else is about transitioning TO it.
I have a friend who is 18 and wants to do porn because she doesn't care who she sleeps with and she wants some money. I am entirely against this idea (mostly because she doesn't need money, she just wants it). She's asked me to go with her to wherever it is she'd go to do this so she could "check it out" and since I'm not supportive of this idea I totally don't want to go, but if she goes through with it I don't want her to go by herself and get into trouble.
So...what would you do in this situation? Also, I already feel conflicted because I don't see too much wrong with being in porn, but I still don't want one of my good friends doing it :(
I haven't driven across Canada or anything, but I have to vote Ontario drivers. They stop are green lights and drive in your blind spot. They're also incapable of judging speeds, for some reason, and fly into intersections.
QC City drivers are a different breed of insane. They just don't make sense and I can't even describe it.
9:08 PM 8/12/08 · By and large there's been a lot of changes in Star Trek continuity from Kirk's time to Picard's and onward. Like how Picard and folks absolutely cannot exceed Warp 9 yet back when Kirk was in charge they periodically popped the bubble past Warp 11. Typical unfounded explanation is that there's been a quality shift in warp travel between the two eras but that seems a bit off.
Transwarp was supposed to be the jump up from warp in Kirk's time but I believe from the Next Generation on they still haven't perfected transwarp...
...which isn't my question but feel free to jump in on that if you like.
Back in Kirk's time most Starfleet vessels carried at least two weapons of mass destruction cutely referred to as planet busters. They're mentioned more in the novels than the show, though I vaguely remember Kirk onscreen using some form of cobalt device as a bluff. My point is that roundabout when Picard was in the big seat I don't recall any mention of planet busters being incorporated in starship weapon systems.
Kinda thing like that would've been handy against the Borg...at least once or twice.
So, my home has been blessed with a hornet's nest. I noticed it last night (it's on the small to medium size, maybe twenty of the little things buzzing around). I hosed it down (and am continually hosing the same spot), but the things keep trying to rebuild the nest every five seconds.
Will they eventually give up, or should I go get some hornet spray?

...would you put a sign on both sides of your car (or rented car, if you don't have one) that says PEDOMOBILE, and in large letters FREE CANDY, put a temporary bumper sticker on the back that says LET'S MAKE KIDDIELOVING LEGAL....and then, cruise around a local middle school for an hour, circling the block repeatedly and slowly, when classes end for the day? You must circle around for an hour. Would you do it?
...would you go to Disneyland, and pull Mickey Mouse off his photo-op throne, and start pummeling the costumed character in front of dozens of young, horrified children who were waiting in line to sit on his lap? You'll suffer no legal consequences
...would you spend the night in an abandoned, reportedly haunted prison? You'll be given a sleeping bag and a single flashlight, and will have to spend the whole night in the lower chambers, where the electric chair was kept. Just you. No one else, with no other light source in this humungous fallen-into-neglect prison except your flashlight
Which is more personal - thanking a husband and wife through a thank you card or calling them on the phone and thanking them (and run the risk of only catching one of them home)?
My grandparents who I haven't seen in about eight years sent me a nice sum of money for my university tuition through a congratulations card, and I'm contemplating on how to thank them since I can't exactly see them in person.
Have any of you started a running program after being a fat lazy slob for most of your life? For some reason today I became really interested in starting to run. Probably because I could really stand to lose some weight.
Do you have any advice for a starting runner? What made you stick to it? I think I'll start on the treadmill in my building until I get a bit stronger, I live on a hill...
Imagine you want to watch the Olympics, but you can't because of other obligations. You DVR it, record it, or something. You want to watch it after work, so you try to avoid conversation about the event, but you're sitting at lunch and someone says, "Did you watch women's gymnastics last night?" You respond, "No, I recorded it, so I don't know the results and want to watch it when I get home." To which they reply, "Oh.... [insert how they placed]". Would you be upset?
I sure am. This seems to be the trend at my job...no one is smart enough to understand that when you say, "I am waiting to watch it" that means "Don't spoil it for me..."
Can I exchange an item at Target (for the same item, this one is just missing a piece) without a reciept? My other half paid for it with his card, which I know they can look up the purchase. Only he's at work, and I need this rice cooker for dinner tonight.
1: Inspired by this post, some of you have multiple LJ accounts. Someone mentioned that it's for personal things.
For those of you who have multiple accounts, why do you have more than one? If you have it for private entries, why don't you make them private on your primary journal?
2: I was falling asleep to a documentary where a guy escaped from a Canadian prison and killed 6 (I think) people, one of them being a priest. He was eventually caught and sentenced to "life in prison with little or no possibility of parole." I'm having trouble wrapping my head around "a little chance of parole."
Would you allow this guy to be up for parole? If he was, would you ever grant him parole if you were authorized to?
ETA: I'm not implying the priest's life is more important than the others. The narrator gave him a special mention, so it stuck in my head that way and I guess I ended up quoting him. As for why the narrator gave the priest a notable mention, I'm not sure.
what small thing is a major pet peeve for you? I HATE HATE HATE when people capitalize the first letter of words other than the first Word of a Sentence. It makes me Want to Kill them. If I'm ever in a position where I'm hiring someone and they send a cover letter where they do that, I will personally call them up and yell at them.
and- what should I get my mother for her birthday? She's not picky at all, but I'd like a cool idea if you have any.
TQC, I'm about to go apply for jobs as a bartender. Most bartenders in this town (college town) wear polo shirts, work pants, and non-slip shoes. I don't want to be as formal as I would be when applying for a job at an office, but I don't want to be too casual. What should I wear?
Have you ever google image-searched something, and received completely different results than you expected? What was it? (I wanted to see who Bianca Golden, the ANTM contestant was... apparently Bianca Golden is also the name of an adult star)
How frequently do you wear perfume/cologne/body spray? What type do you wear?
I want to know if it is possible to ignore certain video results on youtube search. because I am tired of getting tinfoilhatters in my results because they have done keyword spam (with targeted spam fail, as a number of people they target tend to be the types of people with the critical thinking skills to not believe in random pieces of "evidence), and it is annoying fishing through the results.
Not to mention that some search results havbe been taken over by idiots that dont know what they are talking about (search pyroclastic flow, and you will see what I am talking about, heck, it will be the FIRST BLOODY RESULT).
so, in short, how do i block the tinfoilhatter's videos from my search results on youtube?
I have this really annoying habits. I'll go to Borders, my preferred book store, spend about two hundred dollars on various books that just look interesting, but it will take me forever to read them. Because I always like to re-read books I've already read that were really good. I get to reading them eventually, but this is the third time I've done this and I have about eleven books on my shelf I still have yet to read.
What annoying habits do you have that just piss YOU off?
TQC-- Do any of you know a site for which you can get quotes from all the major shipping companies (UPS, Fedex) for international package shipping? I have to find the cheapest shipping rate for 27 30 lb packages that are being sent all over the world and I don't have the time to check each one...! Does this make sense?
also if you HAVE to input the postal code for the country i can't use it, because i don't know them yet
1. Can you suggest a new author for me to try out? Authors I usually read (to give youa better feel of what I like): Bukowski, Vonnegut, Wilde, Salinger, Dostoevsky, Kafka, etc).
2. Planet Sun or Beach Bum tanning? Why? How much is a single session for bronze level at Beach Bum? (They won't tell me directly D: ). 3. What stores carry sweet graphic tees for chicks that aren't $50? Everytime I step into a store, I see tons of flowers and stupid phrases. I love my plain stuff, but I need to switch it up! 4. What stores carry sweet posters for my walls?!
I'd rather not know of places online because I like to try on stuff to see how it fits rather than guess online. Same goes with posters. I hate ~deception~.
Do you know people who were supposed to be in the World Trade Center on September 11th but for some reason, were not there when they were supposed to be?
A friend left her wallet home, and didn't catch her train. My teacher's husband was sent out of his office to get breakfast that day. My cousin was told to stay in her building and wait it out, but the people in her office left (needless to say, every computer in her office was melted when they went back through it)
Are there any types of teeth whitening that will whiten my tooth-colored fillings on the front of my teeth? I want to whiten my teeth, but I'm not sure if it's possible to whiten the fillings or if I'd have to replace them.
According to an article I just read, in an SF based survey of 5000 victims of violent crime (i.e victim's of violent crimes like rape, attempted murder or family members of victims of murder) 90% of victims want to meet their offenders. If you were in that situation, what would you do? Would your answer change if you were the actual victim or the family member of the victim?
What school trip did your school take you on (up till now or will take you to soon) that held the most awesome?
What's your pin number? (For anything, doesn't need to be for a bank account.)
Today, the classics department took the Classics students to watch The Dark Knight - their reasoning was we needed to see how modern day heroes are portrayed. In other words, the teachers just really wanted to watch a movie during school hours - initially they wanted to go watch Indiana Jones but couldn't be bothered doing the paper work.
Ok yeah I'm posting again. I mentioned needing a birthday present for my mom. She's a big dog nut, and I was thinking about signing her up to sponsor a dog at a national shelter/sanctuary- does anyone know of a good one that is A) legit and B) gives you something other than a form letter in return for your sponsorship?
You're vacationing in a foreign country. You're out on a hike through the forest by yourself, when suddenly, a woman appears before you. She's radiating white light and wearing long white robes. Oh, and she's floating.
She starts talking to you. The problem is, it's not in English. It doesn't even sound like the language of the country you're visiting. She keeps talking, and suddenly, a wooden staff appears in your hand and a gold ring around your head.
She holds her hands up and a glowing image appears, of two hills, with a tree on the top of each one. In between the two trees is a waterfall. She motions to the waterfall, says something else, and then disappears.
My first ever password was raspberrykeychai(r). How old was I?
QUICK! Google has died, how will you respond? HOW WILL YOU SURVIVE? Will TQC explode due to a massive influx? You wake up one morning and find out Google has been banned. How will you respond?
Due to some strange reason, you are crowned The Ultimate Ruler of the Universe except TQC and anything or anyone who links to TQC. The only person who can pwn you is TQC's THE ONE. How will you run The Universe?
Are hookers and blow the answer to everything when AIDS and Lupus can't make the cut? Will this be the downfall of TQC's The ONE if you were The Ultimate Ruler of the Universe?
Why do people feel the need to try to fill the emptiness in their pointless little lives by supplying the demand for the papparazzi to violate personal space of celebrities just so they can "get the latest scoop" on what they wear or buy? i dun geddit. Why don't they just waste their time stapling firecrackers to the neighbors dog instead?
i want to know what (if anything) is making you feel nervous and/or what you're currently stressing out about. something that's always in the back of your mind, giving you that queasy feeling whenever you think of it.
please, none of the typical "i'm afraid i won't get a job after college" kind of stuff.
1. Do you like corn? 2. If so, do you prefer fresh, canned, or frozen corn? 3. What is your favorite way to make corn on the cob, or any other use for fresh corn? 4. How much do you pay for an ear of corn?
Do any of you have Aetna insurance for health care? What the fuck is an internist and why are they different than a family practice doctor? I need to see a general practitioner that doesn't deal with children. Help me out plz.
If you're going to a friend's house for a handful of nights (2-4, let's say), what do you take of your own and what would you expect her/him to provide? If this person has wireless internet at their house, do you take your laptop, or is this just considered rude?
I remember a few years ago, I went to a kosher deli. Among the food that was there, they had fried chicken and mac&cheese. I wanted fried chicken with mac&cheese on the side and the worker there refused to sell it to me. I eventually gave up and just ordered the chicken.
I'm considering joining a nearby Y for the pool and gym. It's a Jewish Y. It says that all food brought onto the premise must be kosher. Meaning that if I want to bring a snack with my water, I need to check to see if it's kosher.
My question being, why do Jewish people care what I eat? How does it effect them?
ETA: I give up. The only explanation given is that it's their religion. If that's the only reponse, I've wasted my time.
So I'm going on vacation in a few days and I'm putting together a "cheese" cd, here is what I have so far...
I Need You Tonight, INXS I Just Died In Your Arms Tonight, Cutting Crew Wind Beneath My Wings, Bette Midler Im Too Sexy, Right Said Fred Heartbeat, Don Johnson All Night Long, Lionel Richie I Wear my Sunglasses at Night, Corey Hart Detroit Rock City, Kiss You Took the Words Right Out Of My Mouth, Meatloaf Copacabana (original disco version), Barry Manilow Said I Loved You...

3. If you could mix your own chocolate, whether it be a bar, a truffle, or any other chocolate shape, what kind of chocolate would it be, and what would be in it? (In it: caramel, toffee pieces, etc.) Marble chocolate with peanut butter inside.
