TQC, my workplace sucks. They told my friend that last Saturday was her last day. One person said that they were firing her, but the managers said that they're just taking her off the schedule and waiting for her to quit, because they don't want to give her unemployment.

1. Is this legal? I live in California, if that makes any difference.
2. What is the difference between being "taken off the schedule" and being fired?
3. Won't a significant cut in hours make her eligible for unemployment, regardless of their willingness to give it to her?

4. If you were to quit your job tomorrow and never have the need to show your face around any of your co-workers/clients/customers ever again, is there anybody in particular you would tell off?

5. What is your dream job?

6. What is your current job?

When you hug somebody, do you go arms up, arms down, or one up and one down? Or some weird other sort of hug? Does it depend on who you're hugging?

I do different things with different people. If I'm hugging a guy I don't know as well, I always go arms down or awkward one-armed hug, because I'm short. But if it's a guy who's a good friend, I go arms up because they usually pick me up. I'm not actually sure what I do with girls, I think I might do one arm up and one arm down.

Scenario:

You come home early from work one day and find your SO on the computer. Your SO doesn't hear you come in. A closer inspection reveals that your SO is jacking off...while watching a video of two rabbits getting it on.

What is your reaction?

Do you immediately bolt out of the house? Sneak up behind your SO and yell, "What's up, doc?" Surprise your SO later that night by wearing rabbit ears and a fluffy tail? Something else?

When you were in college, did you pledge for a sorority or fraternity?
If you're not in college yet... will you when you get there?
Why/Why not?
Do you know of any cool greek system horror stories you could tell me?!


Me-
I wont, my school doesn't even offer them.
One of my teachers pledged for a fraternity and he told me that they would bury the pledges in snow up past their heads with just a straw to breathe out of. I guess if the older guys(brothers?) saw the snow move that they would pee in the straw. Not sure how true that is.... but sounds shitty enough to scare me away from the Greek system.

TQC! Let's try something!

First, I have to ask, what's the most comments you've ever gotten on a post here, if you remember?

Well, my last post reached about fifty, which takes second. My first post EVER on TQC about two years I asked "What is the melting point of spaghetti?" and it got to near 200! I don't think I ever got an answer though...

Now... see if we can get to over 200 comments!
Talk about anything, anything your heart desires! But of course answer my question too. =]

Poll #1245664 Poll for the ladies

You're talking to a billionaire at a party, and for some reason, the subject of sexual records comes up. The most sexual partners in a row for a woman is somewhere in the 600s. "That's amazing. I think I know how to beat it. I'd like you to be that woman, and our goal is 700 different male sexual partners. The trick is, I'm also the president of the National Premature Ejaculation Society in America. There's thousands of us, and that's the pool you'll draw from. Each one can only got a minute tops. If you're willing to put up with 12 hours or so of an extremely disappointing sexual marathon, I'll pay you $7,000,000. That's averaging $10k per wiener. You have to finish or you get nothing though.

Do you suspect that the avg 'home-owner' even knows what he's buying into, chemically? It's more than merely bright lights and a lot of cute artwork bullshit. Do you really think it's worth his money?

The reason I ask this is because I watched a program on Youtube about Nuclear Power Plants, and was kind of shocked myself to find arsenic of all ingredients mentioned, which I even commented on. I was just watching a true-crime show the other day where some dude in Dallas (back in the 80s) poisoned his wife with it.

Earlier st_secular and I were chatting over delicious ice cream about TQC and brought up the following questions:

1. If you were to replace the high-ranking government officials in your country (ex: United States Cabinet) with TQC members, who would be doing what?
2. What cabinet positions would you create specifically for TQCistan, and who would fill said positions?

We decided jacktripper/poo for president and vice president, seanseansean for Secretary of Education and shinga for Secretary of Defense. Then we got too wrapped up in the ice cream to finish.

shoot 'em ups.

So, what sort of shoot 'em up games have people here played, and what are your favourites?

I have two favourites, one is the western made tyrian (which was made available for free a while back), and the other is the japanese doujin game (basicly, indie-game) series touhou project.

A good site for info (and to download) tyrian is this fan site.

The reason I like tyrian is that it has so much customizability for your ship. Also, the music is probably some of the best game music from its time for a PC game (though master of orion also had good music).

The touhou project is also good, becuase when you considder that the main games of the series are made by one person, they are very impressive. Also, unlike some other bullet curtain (danmaku, bullet hell, whatever you call those sorts of games) games, the bosses have bullet patterns that make interesting patterns rather than just spamming the screen with lots of bullets. Also, like tyrian, this series also has some great music (enough that there are major fan groups that sell remix cds of the games' music at conventions).

So, anyone have anything to add, or have a differant shoot 'em up game or series that they like?

But I could stay up. The school schedule has never been so early and I have never been rid of both kids for the whole day. Last year I slept again from 9am-11am. Then I had to pick up my son.

Another dumb sunburn question:

I've never been sunburnt before, so I'm kind of paranoid. I got burned on my back, and it was very pink for a few days and hurt, and now it's not pink, but my skin feels flaky and is peeling, which I know is normal. However, where the skin is peeling, the skin underneath is white, so I basically have white spots on my back, and my back is still not done peeling. 

1. Will they go away? 
2. Is this normal? 

It may be dumb, but I've never experienced this before, and I'm terrified I'll have permanent white spots on my back :X

My mom had filed for divorce to my stepdad last week. She also had sent him a restraining order because he kept following her around, calling her at work, and just being overall creepy and possessive. He's literally delusional and thinks she's cheating on him even though she just goes to work and the gym then comes home. The day after the papers were sent to him, she had noticed a car following her around everywhere with the license plate "ICU". She looked it up and it's a private investigator he's hired. She talked to the police but they said there's nothing they can do about it.

There has to be some kind of law against paying someone to stalk you, after you were served a restraining order for stalking.. is there? We're in Rhode Island so I don't know if there are certain laws for different states.

I'm starting my first ever job at a pizza buffet joint tonight at 5. I have no idea what position I'll be filling and they gave me a 20-page packet to memorize when I "got the job" (there's been a lot of drama and misleading on their part). I'm not worried about the job part, really, except that I don't want to work the register or be around customers, but I am more worried about whether to wear my baggy linen pants or the more conservative (read: ugly and ill-fitting) slacks for my first day and where I will change into the shirt they give me (and what to wear when I walk in so it's less of a hassle to change or whatevs) and meeting the other employees and messing up and that sort of thing.

If you've worked at this sort of place before, how did your first day go?
What kind of paperwork did you have to fill out?
How did you calm your nerves and talk to your coworkers?

Hey, kids with tattoos. I got a tattoo last Saturday, and it's reached the point where it's not really red or painful anymore, but the skin is almost peeling, perhaps? It looks like it might be wanting to scab, but I'm not quite sure what it's doing. Is it normal for a tattoo to be sort of peely around/in it for a while? The guy told me care instructions, but he never gave me a sheet and I can't recall anything about what was normal/abnormal being said.

In the college vein:

I am currently not attending any college/form of higher education. Because I am 20 and a product of an upper-middle class household, people often assume I go to college. When they ask me where I go to college, what should I say besides, "I don't"? I don't want to be an asshole, but I also dislike having to explain why I don't go to college at the moment.

2. What should I do with freakshownia while she's in New York? Are there any other New York-area TQCers that want to hang out?

I'm writing this from a co-worker's computer because ever since I returned to the office from my lunch break, every single address I type into Mozilla and Internet Explorer comes up saying "Invalid Address"

Obviously, this computer is working just fine. The problem is only on mine.

My air conditioner is really old. So old, in fact, that I cannot find a picture of it on teh intarwebs. Nor can I find instructions on how to clean it. If none of you can help me, I'll call maintenance. The guy's an asshole so I'm kind of afraid to call him D: Anyway, this is an incredibly bad MS Paint rendering of my A/C closet:

OK, the big yellow thing that says water heater is an elephant my water heater, duh. The big gray rectangle is the tray that holds the resulting water from condensation. The thing with the grate in front of it is where the AC filter goes. There is a pipe in there that is supposed to act as a drain, I think. But there is so much gunk that it is not draining. I really need to learn how to clean the damn thing so I do not run into this scenario again. I had a damn waterfall in my A/C closet. (Oh, and the brown thing on the right is the door, lol.)

So how do I clean this fucker?

I've recently started buying make-up again, but I run out of money very fast, so I'm limited:

Are there make-up brands that are reasonably affordable, but also work really well? Mostly when it comes to eyeshadow.

 If you had a fairly large visible tattoo and were going to a job interview where you knew the didn't specifically say no tattoos allowed, would you cover it up anyway?

Would you ask about the policy on tattoos in an interview? Or say nothing and hope it would be fine? Would you except a job where no tattoos were allowed and be willing to cover it up everyday? (and by covering it up, I'm suggesting like having to wear long sleeves or pants all of the time...)

Have you read "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausch?
Is it sad or is it upbeat?
I have it and want to read it, but I don't think I can get through it if it's really sad.

Have you heard of Leo Buscaglia?
If you have, do you love him?!


What was the last artsy/craft project you did?

Chinese Barbecue Restaurant

Have you ever eaten at a restaurant that described itself as "chinese barbecue"? What was the food like? Is there any dish that is typically good?
We have a Chinese barbecue restaurant that has just opened here, and I have never heard of this style of chinese food before.
Just wondering if anyone has any positive or negative thoughts on it?
