Congratulations! You now own a fortune 500 company!

1) What ridiculous luxury is in your main home?

2) Where are your 3 homes?

3) What one thing do you give your employees to be a nice boss? Something extra, as I assume you are not being a schmuck and already giving them health care.

4) Conan O'Brien and Jon Stewart both want to interview you. Who do you choose?

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?

Paris Hilton
Jared the Subway Guy
Clay Aiken
That crazy Jesus lady (GOD WARRIOR) from Trading Spouses
Ryan Seacrest
Tom Cruise

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.

3) mashed potatoes! yum yum.

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.

Inspired by very stupid debates I have with friends...

Is everything permanent until it's temporary?

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)

1:  Why does my brother-in-law always leave tinkle sprinkle on the toilet seat when he knows girls sit there?

Sometimes I can't see it and sometimes I forget to check and I end up sitting on his pee =(.  Other times it's obvious because there are dark yellow spots.

2:  Why did my mother-in-law ask if I've already eaten when she saw me taking my dish to the sink to wash it?

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 :(

Which Canadian province has the worst drivers?

Or which city, if you want to get specific.

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 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?

Poll #1241163 For $5,000...

...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 have safe sex with Ron Jeremy? Things to consider: the relationship you're in right now (if it applies)


...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.

 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 one is smart enough to understand that when you say, "I am waiting to watch it" that means "Don't spoil it for me..."

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.

dear TQC,

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?

Annoying Habits

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?

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.

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?

Cats as contraband

Poll #1241469 No puppy for XY chromosome owners

Saudi Arabia bans the sale of dogs and cats to men on the grounds that pets can be used to pick up women. Who's the big loser here?

Saudi men. They'll have to find a new way to meet women. It's back to the dating drawing board for them.
Saudi women. There will be less men trying to talk to them
Saudi cats and dogs. More of them will stay in cages, awaiting homes
Saudi Arabia. The oppressive country has once again become the butt of the world's jokes
Islam. Banning pet ownership isn't really about Islam in this case, but everybody will assume it is
Religion in general. If keeping the genders apart is so important that even dog ownership is a slippery slope to sin, maybe it's time to rethink the role of religion in your life

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.

I had braces when I was 14 because I had a cross-bite. I got them off when I was 15 and stopped wearing my retainer like they told me I could when I was 18.

I am 23 now and my teeth are exactly as they were before I got braces. My crossbite is in full existence.

Call my parents and congratulate them on their waste of money, y/n?
