I know this is asked like every week but I need to see this.lol
Also I heard there was another version of this with The Daily Show crew. True?
If so, what was it like?
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?
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.
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?
If you're not in college yet... will you when you get there?
Do you know of any cool greek system horror stories you could tell 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.
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. =]
Ready... Set... GO!
ETA: Epic fail? Oh wells. I tried. =\
what do you do, or say, when you want to kiss someone?
do you have any tricks for getting that first kiss?
like fun things... sneak attacks... set ups... that sort of thing.
2. Who is your favorite yesteryear (1920's - 1959's) actor?
3. Who is your favorite actress from the same period?
4. Anyone else besides me in TQCland like Peter Lorre?
5. Are you asking yourself right now, "Who's Peter Lorre?"
( Collapse )
I know Yamaha and Rolands are great brands but I'm on a really tight budget :( and I'm looking for something that comes close enough to feeling like a real piano.
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. No money for half the dicks serviced. I hate quitters. Wanna do it?"
At least their existence in this community...
ETA: What's something important you could have been doing, that her attention-whoriness [for lack of a better term] may have distracted you from, because it was just too funny to ignore?
uhmmmm, sleep? and a bit of cleaning.
2. wont you be my neighbor?
3. would you fuck a bunch of hot clones or is that creepy?
What is it?
Did you know the movie equivalent of Jumping the Shark is Nuking the Fridge*?
What are some good examples of movies which have Nuked the Fridge?
*see: Indiana Jones 4
What are a few remixes/covers that I absolutely MUST play at least once?
Second question: What's your best messed-up cake story?
My aunt and uncle ordered a cake for my cousin Rebecca's birthday or something from a really nice bakery. When they picked it up, instead of "Happy Birthday Rebecca!" it said "Happy Birthday Rubella!"
I looked him up and he has 44 albums, so it's safe to say I won't be able to listen to ALL of his songs before the concert :P.
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.
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.
yes, yes, and yes! fuck me i'm getting so fed up with the american announcers, they're all tools.
*edit. what is your name?
What do you do to send the other party totally over the edge?
What pushes you over the edge?
What are your "moves"?
I'd appreciate it muchly.
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?
my boyfriend and I are trying to make it on our own without help from parents and we were doing very well for ourselves. then i get this text message "my car just died".
1) Do you have any tips for getting through the workday when you're ill? Not tossing my oreos, but dizzy, tired, etc.
2) What's your favorite thing to do when you're sick?
3) What's the sickest you've ever been? Hallucinated? Cried?
2. I want to pull my spinal cord out, how should I do it?
3. What have you eaten so far today?
2. If you've ever played any form of Super Smash Brothers, what's your favorite character to play as?
3. What do you do with yourself when you have a 4-hour block of free time in the afternoon?
4. Cake or death?
the last place i called said i needed to know the size of the engine and the amperage of the alternator. i have no idea how to even find this information out. anyone know?
EDIT: thanks guys. i ended up calling autozone cause i couldn't find a damn thing and they were able to help me. :)
And what color T-Shirts would your team wear?
What would you do?
1. Whats the one thing that bothers you more than anything?
2. How do I get my Xbf to leave me alone without being a complete bitch?
3. What's the best smell in the world?
On one hand I think it's silly for him to be THIS CLOSE and me not see him, but on the other hand I'd hate to blow off work. What would YOU do in this situation, TQC? Talk amongst yourselves. ;)
I woke up in the middle of the night last night and noticed I had it, and still do this morning but by later in the day I'll be fine.
Say you're seriously dating a guy and you seriously love him to death. One day he proposes and asks for your hand in marriage. However, his last name is Hooker. Would you take his last name?
Same scenario as above, except his last name is Dikes. Would you take his last name?
Same scenario, except his last name is Kuntz. Would you take his name?
Same scenario, except his last name is Focker. Would you take his last name?
Same scenario, except his last name is Slutskaya. Would you take his last name?
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
Have you had surgery?
If so, what for?
Have you had your tonsils removed?
What about your wisdom teeth?

Do you think it's worthwhile to take a multivitamin? Thoughts?
I take target brand women's vitamins (more calcium? whats the difference?) and I'm wondering if it's even worth it. I do notice that my bones crack less when I take vitamins regularly than when I don't.

2. Make my decisions for me! -- I've been wanting to stretch my earlobes forever but my ear piercings that I had done as a kid are way noticeably uneven, to the point where I haven't worn earrings in ten years because the unevenness bothers me. Should I stretch them despite being uneven or just scrap the idea and keep resenting my useless holes?
What if you were robbed/mugged and beaten and you see your attacker one afternoon walking down the road, (he was never prosecuted due to lack of evidence) and you freak out and shoot him. Should you be prosecuted?
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.
1) Where would you take them?
2) What about lunch? Dinner?
3) A bar for after-dinner drinks?
4) What souvenir would you send them away with?
ETA: OKay, let's assume other then your bedroom and hot sexxors.

3. Do you want to know your future? If so, give me four details about yourself and I will tell you.

Is "transvestite" a socially acceptable term?
I always wanna participate in TQC meetups, but nobody seems to live around me :[ :[
Do you agree or disagree?
do you neatly put up your clothes in the dressing room or are you the type to throw it all over the place on the floor with gum and then pee on it later?
I had half a ham sandwich for breakfast, and some potato chips. I'm at school now, so i probably won't be eating lunch til 2:30-3pm ish.
Also, how can I stop the police from chasing me?
When you say "privacy," do you pronounce the "i" as in "it" or as in "eye"?
Should I join another dance class? (I'm currently doing 4)
Ladies! If/When you get married would you take your husband's last name?
Boys! If/when you get married, would you expect your wife to take your name?
Boys again! Which of the following arrangements would you be agreeable to in a marriage?
Also, what class should I take in place of calculus? I realized that it is totally unnecessary so I'm dropping it.
We caught the tail end of a song on the radio and it ended in some humming and a phhttbtbbh (better known as the sound that happens when you stick your tongue between your lips and force air out.) What song was that? It sounded fun.
I've now been left with pretty bad stubble.
As amusing as I find it, and i'm sure the boy will, how can I sort this?
Theres enough of it to shave, but i'd rather I could just reverse the situation! Would re-doing the cream work to rid me of this horrible stubble?!

Hey will you shout out your college (community, 4 year, graduate or technical) and your year ? If you go to the same one as another person then reply under their comment.
ETA: I added graduate and made it a question !
1. Does anyone know of any cool music fesitvals going on in the US this fall?
2. If you don't, where would you recommend going for a weekend trip in September/October (in the US!)?
I wanna take my SO on some sort of trip. We like to travel, and want to travel together for once, so even if it's small, it'd be cool. We're situated in Jersey right now, boorring. We wanted to go to the Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco, but roundtrip plane tickets there are mad $$$. D:
3. If you don't know/care, what's the weirdest thing that'd happened to you lately?

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?

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...)
