My boyfriend's psychotic ex-girlfriend hates me to the point of figuring out my cell phone number to leave me lovely voicemails, hacking my facebook, and just being a huge all-around bitch. Low and behold we end up going to the same nursing school. I really, really do not want to live with my mom anymore, she is on a whole different level of crazy, and this school actually has dorms!!! Problem is there are only 14 of them and the crazy ex-gf already lives there. What should I do?

Have you ever passed a month+ lon assignment by doing the entire thing on the very last day?
I had a 5 week classics research assignment. It was due on a Monday, I started on the Sunday. At 11:30 in the morning. I spent like ten minutes then went to have lunch and mucked around so I really started it at around 1pm. I passed. With flying colours. It was a very good experience but didn't do anything to correct my procrastinating habits since I passed with the highest possible mark. D= (It even helped my ego grow because I was the only one who got the mark in the whole class.)
So, HOW DO I GET RID OF MY HABIT OF PROCRASTINATING???!!!!!!!! No boobies please.

Do I get a PSP, a Nintendo DS, or a gameboy advance?
As for what I would be doing with it game-wise... I'm thinking anything that would amuse me (am easily amused) and isn't scary (eep) and possibly those brain age type games.
I'm mainly buying it so that I can have something to help me destress and preoccupy myself on lunches and breaks when I'm not drawing or writng.
Thanks in advance yall! :D

do you like MSNBC? I've been watching that a lot lately
what channel do your parents and grandparents watch?
Mine - I'm afraid that, on long car trips, I'm going to pull off the highway for gas and not be able to find the on-ramp back on, or I'll make a mistake and turn onto the highway going the wrong way (south instead of north, not against traffic). It's only semi-irrational because my sense of direction is horrible and I have run into an exit or two where the ramp back on was in a weird place, or on a difference street.
Who would you rather bang from that movie: Richard Gere or Olivier Martinez?
Worst class you ever had?
Hooking up w/ a cute freshman, bad idea? Y/N?

My two male housemates have gotten so comfortable with me that they try to get me to relinquish control of the remote by farting loudly. How can I get back at them? This is my last night here :(
what would you do if

1) didn't know he had a live in gf for the past few years
2) he told you about it after initial connection
3) you have not hooked up with him yet
4) he's told you that he's willing to make a "choice" prior to doing anything
5) you feel guilty for being a homewrecker
6) he tells you that things between the two of them have been rocky for some time now
7) while you have not hooked up you do talk/hang out all the time and have emotionally become intimate
what do you do? what do you look out for?
EDIT: have you ever hooked up with a married guy or a guy who has a gf? what happen? tell me a story
when you ask others for advice, do you listen intently? or waiting for a chance to vent?

If a stranger lays in your bed, do you prefer that they keep their shoes on or off?
Anyway, do you celebrate your monthly, but non iconic (re: one year) anniversaries with your S.O.? If so, what do you tend to do?
Edit: one reason I am curious is because a former roommate I had celebrated every month, and it seemed odd to me, so I am wondering if it's common.
1. i think it's the browser now. why would Firefox be showing certain JPEG images bright and colourful and others drab, where Safari is showing all images in question as bright and colourful? eta: OK, NM! THANKS EVERYONE WHO ANSWERED! IT'S JUST A KNOWN MAC OS PROBLEM! whew
2. also, if you've had it obv, do you like Hershey's ("chocolate")? i had it all the time as a kid and then none for like 10 years and now it tastes like heartburn to me. and why does the chocolate around a reese's taste different, what do they do different to it?

How's the weather where you are? What's the temperature outside?
Will you write me a haiku?

I'm thinking something along the lines of "there are no stupid answers, just stupid questions". Heh.

The book is being written, this isn't hypothetical, just fyi.

2. Can you picture yourself online as a 70-year-old? Can you picture yourself getting tired of the Internet?
3. Which percentage of your work day is spent surfing the 'net as opposed to actually working?
1. no, I immediately switched to a regional network. I guess it just seemed lame to me.
2. I think the Internet will follow our generation and we will all be communicating with each other from our nursing home beds.
3. I spend about 70% of the time online and 30% working, probably.
ie) bring home timbits to share etc.
Should I also go to two receptions offered at the end of each day? There will be light food and a cash bar at each, and they cost $10 and $15 respectively. I'm already driving to the conference and back each day, so the price of gas is something to consider as well.
What should I say to all the big names I'm going to meet?
Have you ever been to a big conference (academic, anime, whatever)?
What should I expect?
How many of you have gotten Apartment Life yet? Thoughts? Do you love it? Hate it?

if you aren't listening to music and don't have a planner, what color is the layer of fabric closest to your genitals?
Can I continue cooking them, or should I toss them? They'll be cooked well, so I'm not too concerned about bacteria, I just don't want the texture to be off due to sitting for a few days.
The dish I have in mind involves cooking the beans with other ingredients, so I can't cook them up and see how they are without the risk of wasting more food.
So...TQC...got a sexy pic you'd like to share with the class?

I am a loser who still lives at home, I've never gone away except for college... What will I do when I have to leave and live hours from everyone/everywhere I know?? I'm getting so nervous just thinking about it.
Today I learned I got the job, and I'm excited but terrified. How do you deal with living completely on your own? (money obviously is not the problem) But where do people make friends? How will I find the proper grocery store... aiee!
(yeah I know, i sound pathetic)
Do you think it's a good idea or a bad idea? Why?

What a bad day for Clayton County today, eh?
So: I intend to, after i've retrieved my vehicle, go over to the parking division and protest that I would not have been towed had they upheld their part of the deal. I'm hoping to get my tow fee, or overnight fee, reimbursed.
1) any tips? I'm trying to compose myself so I don't go there and freak out on people, but if you have tips for it that'd be great.
2) Is it likely that, if they use towing company A over Towing company B, Towing Company A is giving them some sort of kickback/referral bonus?
Was thinking i might call towing companies other than whatever they used, as well, because if they used anything but the cheapest one I'm going to be even more pissed.
So, how the Hell do I get over this guy who has broken my heart or something? I just kind of want to stop thinking about him/obsessing over him cos it's doing my head in.
Also, what's the worst pain (physical, not emotional) you've ever been in?
Oh fuck it, it was long and TL;DR, I'll try it again later.
My question for the moment: how often do you send text messages? Do you like them, or do you think they're pointless? What do you use them for -- chatting, or just important information (like "I'll be there in 10 minutes")?
The other day I was discussing with a friend the subject of villains. I've been working on a book for a while and the story line is at the point where I have a major villain showing up. There have been several minor bad guys up to this moment. All of them have been swimming the gray area. However, with this character, whose name is Leopold, I want to make him a truly evil and remarkable villain besides stating the fact that he's a sociopath. Which he is.
Now my friend and I have been going back and forth on what makes a good villain. We've been doing this since we've read io9's article called, Why we deserve better villains and how to get them. The article says that best villains are the ones with the shady past and who don't redeem themselves. This is why Joker was such a refreshing breath of air compared the slew of recent fictional bad guys. His past was multiple choice and he never apologized for who he was.
But I am not sure about this. There has to be more that makes a fantastic villain just that, fantastic.
So, the TL/DR version of this questions is, what makes a villain for you work?
What villains do you like?
What did you like about them?
ETA: if you like nightmare before christmas, are you considered "one of those people" aka hot topic-loving, "i-want-to-marry-jack-skellington" obsessive? i'm pretty normal, but i'm embarrassed to like it now.
her brother was born in May of 1977(...).
she says they're 9 years apart.
he says they're 10.
i say they're 9 1/2. but they're talking about rounding up or down.
they keep going back and forth about this so i've come to you, TQC, to end this nonsense once and for all.
would you round up to 10 or down to 9?
Would you like to do it again sometime?
Did you know how to flush a toilet at the age of 20, 21, or 22?

3. If you were in my situation, what would you do:
a. Fly spiritair for 241 dollars from Detroit, MI to Panama City, Panama, with a ten hour layover in Fort Lauderdale/Miami?
b. Fly Copa/Continental for 365 dollars from Detroit, MI to Panama City with a three hour layover in Newark?
4. If anyone lives near the Fort Lauderdale/Miami airport, is there anything to do around there? I have never been to Miami, so I guess I could use that huge expanse of time to explore....
