The villains always get the best lines...and auf Deutsch

I finished watching "The Prophecy" for the umpteenth time on tv tonight because Walken as Gabriel and Viggo as Lucifer should never be missed. From that I give you this question...

1. What's your favorite version of the Devil as portrayed in movies/books/television/etc?

2. Which actor played him/her the best?

3. What actor would you like to see play him/her?

And while we are on the subject of scary figures...

4. What actor would you love to see in a vampire movie? And What type of vampire would you like see him/her play?

And last but not least something completely different.

Can any German speakers in TQC tell me how to write, "Go home!" in German?

I think it's "Nach Hause gehts" but I am not completely sure. It's for a story. Thanks.

Ladies (and Gentlemen, if you're into that sort of thing!), what is your preferred pain relief product for PMS? And when the P is dropped?
idk this is why i am asking y'all

For all the sexes, have you ever done a gender bender with certain pills? If so, which ones? If not, do you have any urge to? (IE Women taking viagra, cialis, levitra; men taking birth control/period relief etc)
No, but after seeing the sex and the city episode where Samantha tries and loves Viagra, I kind of want to.

if this makes sense

1. Is anyone else ever often drawn to sad things -- poetry, songs, movies, etc.? For some reason, I generally prefer things that are heartbreaking or bittersweet instead of "omg and they lived happily ever after."

What are your favorite sad songs/poems/movies/whatever else?

2. Has anyone seen "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2"? What were your thoughts?

Casual sex Friday

1. Guys: What would you think of a girl if she slept with you on the first/second/third date? Would you want to have a relationship with her? Or would she pretty much become a fuck buddy/friends-with-benefits type of thing automatically because she put out so early? Do you still respect a girl if you sleep with her early on?

2. Girls: Have you ever slept with a guy on the first/second/third date (just pretty much early on in your acquaintanceship with him)? How did that work out?

Let's talk about sex, baby.

Do you guys think this could all be coincidental or am I on the right track here? It's been ingrained in me from when I was little that I'm just a complainer and nothing is ever really physically wrong, so I have a hard time knowing if I am blowing these things out of proportion of not...

What's the saddest movie you have ever seen?

Extra points if it's blatantly oozing of sap (i.e. Lifetime) and/or purposely trying to make you want to bawl (i.e. cancer, deaths, breakups, main character death, etc).

mosquito bites of d00m

Why do I seem extra prone to getting mosquito bites?

How come I just got four in the span of 15 minutes despite being fully covered up [no exposed skin on my arms or legs] and my boyfriend was right beside me wearing shorts and a t-shirt and didn't get bitten at all?

I always get them three or four at a time and they always swell up to massive proportions. The worst was one I got a month ago where it swelled up to tennis-ball-size.

Is my blood sweeter or something?

What's something age-inappropriate of you?

Me: I probably have many, many things, but this question came to mind because I'm watching Rugrats on TV. I'm 19. It's always been a favorite. ;D


1. 2pac or Notorious B.I.G.? And tell me why.

2. Pepsi or Coca Cola? and tell me why.

3. Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs? and tell me why.

4. Which Outkast member do you like better? Andre 3000 or Big Boi?

5. Rock or Hip Hop? and tell me why.

My answers.
1. 2pac. He wasn't as pop oriented and had deeper material.
2. Pepsi. It's sweeter.
3. Pulp Fiction. I found it more entertaining and it kept my attention.
4. Andre 3000. I love it when people aren't afraid to be different.
5. Hip Hop. I like a lot of rock as well, but hip hop is my comfort zone, and I know more about hip hop.

I'm newly living alone, and I'm sick. I've been throwing up everything I swallow for about 8 hours, including water. I've tried juice (for electrolytes,) I've tried crackers... my body just isn't having any of it. I seem to remember something about BREAD (Bananas, rice... other things? Maybe apples?) being good when you're sick, but I can't remember anything but those two/three, and google isn't yielding any results at all, except for results about banana bread made with rice flour... Did my sick brain make that up? If not, what are the other things which are included?

I'm taking Excedrin to lower my fever and help with my aches. Could that be making the upset stomach worse?

We're moving. I'm at work. My boyfriend and his friends are at the apartment moving stuff down into the truck.

I have stuffed animals and my boyfriend is just giving them away to his friends' kids. Particularly this giant pink unicorn (the thing is as big as an English Mastiff).

I was saving it for our baby girl (if we have one). When I get pregnant again, if I don't have a girl, I'm going to give it to my twin neices.

Verify my anger! Don't I have a right to be upset? He thinks I'm being an irrational hoarder...

(He finally did tell his friend that he can't have it... but he's just giving away my crap!)

Edit: so after almost an hour (and some pictures of his friends with my stuffed animals in lude positions), he called and said he was sorry for making me upset.

What Happens When You Throw a Tantrum at the Olympics

My dad and I are having a disagreement about Swedish wrestler, Ara Abrahamian getting his bronze medal taken away.

In case you don't know, here's the story-after he lost a competition, apparently because of a decision officials had made over a disputed penalty. His teammates had to hold him back as he stormed the officials table, after which he stormed off to his dressing room slamming the door so hard the wall shook. He almost refused to continue and go on to participate in the competition for bronze but friends convinced him to do it-he ended up getting the bronze. At the medal ceremony he walked off the stand, throwing his bronze medal do the ground. He'd said something about how the bronze was pointless, he'd come for the gold so he considered the Olympics a failure-not sure if he meant his participation in them or the Olympics all together-since he seemed to blame officials for his loss.

So, the International Olympic Committee disqualified him and stripped him of his medal citing that "Abrahamian’s actions amounted to a political demonstration and a mark of disrespect to his fellow athletes." and "It was felt that his behavior on the medal podium and during the medal ceremony was not appropriate,” IOC spokeswoman Giselle Davies said. “His behavior was not in the Olympic spirit of respect for his fellow athletes. Whatever grievances you may have, this was not the way to go about it.”

edit-nobody will get the bronze for that game because it wasn't taken away because of the actual match

So, do you think the IOC was right in their choice or do you think that it's his medal and he can do with it what he wants?

I own a Macbook that I use for everything, except gaming. The only time I game is when I come home from being on the road, which is hard because I get really into my computer games and love spending good chunks of time on them. You should see my Sims town, it's scary how much time I put into every little detail. To be honest, it would be a welcomed distraction from life on the road to be able to bring my sims and whatever other games I play with me.

Would it be stupid to buy a PC laptop to bring on the road with me, simply for gaming purposes? (Think traveling with two laptops, airport security, etc) Assume that money isn't an issue.

If you spend as much time as I do gaming and really care about your graphics/quality/performance, what laptop(s) would you recommend off the top of your head, if you know of any?

How many computers do you own/work on? Do you carry (or have you ever carried) around more than one? Do you use different computers for different things?

I would so love to be able to take my entire Sims town, all expansion packs included, plus Spore and a bunch of smaller games on the road with me.

Well, I think it's sweet.

One of my professors has a hyphenated name, and he mentioned to the class that part of the name is his wife's maiden name, and that hers is hyphenated with his as well. I just about swooned because I thought it was so sweet that he took her name as well.

Back in May I borrowed $300 from my mom to get a new computer. They were having a good tax rebate deal plus I work for Dell so I had a good discount. I planned on paying her back as soon as my husband and I got our tax rebate check in the mail, which showed up in early June.

Next thing I know she is going to Florida to visit her friend and doesn't know exactly when she'll be back so she tells me to hold onto it. Months later, and she calls me asking for the money. I go to the bank, get a money order, (she refused to let me write a check as she doesn't have an account) and send to the address that she gave me.

She left a zero off the end of the house number and it's been over a week since I mailed the money order.

It's also weird that when he corresponds with an old friend who's in jail, he laughs when friend talks about how he's going to get back at the ex-girlfriend that put him behind bars. Y/Y?

Yesterday afternoon, I noticed two adult birds (same size) doing something very strange. One bird would open its beak expectantly (like a baby bird would), and the other bird would pick up some crumbs and put them in the first bird's beak. They did this again and again. The second bird alternated between eating the crumbs itself and picking up crumbs for the first bird and feeding them to it.

Why do you think this was happening? Nothing seemed to be wrong with the bird being fed!

I may be getting a new desk chair, and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestion for a comfortable one (god knows I spend hours in it) that doesn't look totally office-y, a la this or this? The big leathery ones are nice but I'm finally in the process of decorating my own place for the first time and I'm trying to find something more classic and homey looking and I don't know how to start looking. (My desk is a medium-dark wood and antique-y, something vaguely like this.)

For the sake of this exercise, price doesn't matter, since I just want to see some styles you guys recommend and then I'll try to find something similar within my budget.

1) Who in TQC would you go gay (or straight) for?

2) Have you seen the Pandas?

3) Who is your favorite news guy (or girl)? (CNN, NBS, Comedy Central, whatever)

4) And, because I'm a sci-fi geek, did anyone happen to catch the episode of Stargate Atlantis last night?

Ey Wii owners of TQC, I'm about to play through Twilight Princess again for the first time since completing it on January, how many times have YOU played through it giving Link hilarious names like 'OK Motel'??

DID YOU KNOW, that Ganondorf's full name is Dragmire Ganondorf aka Mandrag Ganon??

You think Nintendo should change the name of this series to acknowledge only Link on the title? Would you rather have more of Ilia instead of Zelda?

Speaking of which, is that A Link to the Past remake still happening?

BONUS STAGE ( not Zelda related )

Is there anything from The Future Sound of London worth hearing other than Dead Cities?

When you go to a bar that has a jukebox, what song do you have to play or happen to play the most?

Mine is 'Hair Of the Dog' by Nazareth, and usually my one friend has to be there, otherwise it feels a little sac religious.

I'm in a room with my boyfriend, browsing the internet. Every time I see something funny, obviously I laugh. He keeps asking why I'm laughing.

TQC, what should I tell him that'll make him stop asking?

Also, how do I shot web??

 There's cops blocking off the span of four blocks including my own, a helicopter beaming it's light everywhere, dogs and house to house searches. I got stopped trying to enter my block, they searched my car and escorted me back to my house then asked me to close all the window and lock all the doors. Suppositely there was a robbery and a fatal [?] stabbing.. 

Have you ever been involved or stuck in a policey situation like this?

Is owning a bluetooth headset solely for the purpose of talking on the phone while driving make me a snob? I can't drive and hold a phone at the same time. According to some friends, I'm a snob indeed.

What is your favorite texture?

You know those mats they have for cats so that when they step out of the litter box, the sand doesn't cling to their feet? I love the feeling of those on my bare feet. I bought one, even though I don't have a cat, so I could use it for myself.

TQC, I absolutely love Nickelback, but I haven't heard most of their earlier stuff yet. I have their album "All The Right Reasons", and I'm in love with it.

What older songs of theirs should I download and listen to?

What's your favorite song off of "All The Right Reasons"?

mine's Fight For All The Wrong Reasons.

Hey fellow TQCers!

Can you recommend some age-appropriate movies for a two-year-old? I'm thinking most Disney movies should be okay, but this is a child who is a little sensitive -- he watched Ratatouille and got scared during a scene when a roof collapsed and rats started pouring in (well, I guess they are rats, even if they're animated rats.)

I'm currently downloading some movies for him, and since I don't have kids of my own (he's my cousin's son) I'm not all that sure of what would be considered "appropriate" for a child that age.
