yes or no?
Have you ever gotten something stuck up your nose?
Anyone else watch???
Why is Hitler so funny to us?
Are we all anti-semites?
2. do you have a 40,000 lb cheese wheel to share with the class?
3. do you feel that what existed before the universe is irrelevant? (seems weird to me that the same people who contend this also let their curiosities lead them on to search for answers to just about everything else. maybe someone can explain.)
Any suggestions on similar sites?
Most of the area west of Charleston (it happened in Institute, the Bayer plant.. with all that fun MIC) is under lockdown and being told to Shelter in place. I-64 is completely closed off to traffic, and a thick haze has already formed in St. Albans. For those of you possibly familiar with the area, people felt the explosion rock their houses as far away as South Hills. For those of you not familiar, that's something like ten miles away.
Are we all going to die?
I missed TQC today,
what do you miss?
How have your first days of classes gone? Any interesting stories?
And especially for our TQC freshmen out there who are experiencing this for the first time, how is the whole experience going so far?

...amazing and you'd own every piece if you could afford it or ugly overpriced shit that needs to go away? (or maybe something inbetween?)
My vote is ugly overpriced shit.
My sister is in beauty school and brought home her practice head. I swear its gaze is following me around the room. I need to kill it before it kills me.
And spiders keep coming out of nowhere to surprise me and test my fight or flight response.
Is this the guy (shot in the dark)?
What are good leashes for kitties? What about other devices to prevent kitty from straying too far?
How did you choose an area of focus?
Any fun first-day-of-collage stories to share?
Is it completely unreasonable for me to feel slightly annoyed with the fact that
a) my boyfriend practically refuses to text me when he's in the presence of any other living being
b) he just randomly decides he doesn't feel like talking... but doesn't ever give me any warning.
Whenever I bring it up, that he doesn't return my texts, or anything like that, he goes off on this tangent about how he shouldn't have to tell me where he is or what he's doing all the time (even though that's not what I'm asking him to do). Even went as far as telling me it was none of my business... though, as his girlfriend... it kind of is, at least for a general outline. I mean... I don't WANT to know where he is every second. But if he's going to be incommunicado for half the day... I'd like to know.
Or.... he just brushes it off like it's nothing, even when I'm really upset. Sigh.
I only look at custom Groups, otherwise I'd have to sift through too many posts to see ones by people I actually know.
WILL YOU MAKE ME LAUGH?

I have to be up at 5:30 this morning. It's currently 2:04AM. Should I even bother to sleep or should I just stay up? (There will definitely be a nap this afternoon, regardless.)
But I work in a coffee shop down the street from MIT, and I get these Asian college students sometimes who I'm sure are insanely brilliant mathematical geniuses, but they do not speak a WORD of English. Trying to figure out what they want to drink is seriously an ordeal, way more extreme than the brief confusion that sometimes happens with people for whom English is a second language. And I really don't understand how they get by and learn in a student body that predominantly speaks English (I assume the professors speak English in class as well). It doesn't bother me or anything; it just genuinely confuses me. I keep picturing myself going to college in a place where all of the students and professors only speak French (for example), but all I know is "bonjour." How could I possibly follow what's going on in class? Or talk to my professors? Or do anything, really?
Anyone have any insight on how this kind of thing works? They must be making it work somehow, but I can't fathom what the explanation might be. And I am deathly curious / intrigued.

[I imagine this post will be depressing so here's another question:]
When was the last time someone said something genuinely LOVELY to you?
coarse i do it anyways even if i dont, which is usually rare. but yeah, do you delete stuff like that off of your computer all the time like me?
do you find synesthesia fascinating?
What are you up to today?
Who/what do you miss?
TQC, will you recommend some liquor for me? I like fruity flavored stuff and chocolatey stuff. I'm too wussy for straight stuff, though I'll drink it if it's all that's available. I need something delicious yet economical.
TQC, I do not like alcohol that doesn't taste like some kind of candy. How would you like to mock me?
TQC, how are you today?
Examples of such would be:
Here (In Your Arms) - Hellogoodbye (I blame whatever car commercial played that)
Open Road Song - Eve 6
I'm curious to see if anyone else can think of similar songs, or even if i'm just crazy and no one gets what i'm trying to compile.
if you're a McCain supporter, what are you going to do if Obama wins?
2] What do you wish people would stop asking you?
I like using angel food cake, I hate it when people use biscuits:X And I like cool whip better than whip cream.
2. Where was the last place you went out to eat? What did you order?
3. Cool Whip or Whip Cream?
My hard drive randomly committed suicide :[ (and I missed you, TQC, but now I'm back!).
Anyways, I lost everything, and now I have to start anew.
I'm trying to rebuild my itunes library at the moment. What songs must I add to my collection?

His art isn't so much my thing but a couple of friends of mine would adore it, so I was hoping to track it down for a present. I've found mention of prints of it but no sign of anywhere to actually get one.
What should I do? I'm already drinking coffee.
1b: If so, what is a topic that you could debate on forever?
2: What genre do you watch most often on TV?
3: What's the longest you've gone without going outside?
2. Out of your whole medicine chest arsenal, you have to throw everything out but one item. What one medicinal item will you keep around?
3. Would you rather have to look after a room of ten one year olds or two two year olds for three hours? (they all have already taken their afternoon nap). I should probably note that the two year olds have just eaten a lot of pudding and are looking a little ... excited.
4. What is your favorite condiment?
at work we sell pre-packaged sandwiches and i get all these people asking me if they're okay. no, we sell tainted meat!
This always kind of baffles me. I would never let my cat sit on my keyboard. What if all this hair gets in the keys and messes them up? What if they break the keyboard or monitor?
If you have a cat, do you let him/her sit on the computer? If you don't have a cat, would you?
A law saying people can use either restroom, regardless of gender, to help ease issues concerning transvestites versus a transvestite working with the issue of "which bathroom?" him/herself.
Is it up to a restaurant to be aware of the specific differences between different dietary lifestyles (vegan, vegetarian, fruitarian, lacto-vegetarian, pescetarian, etc), or is it up to the eater to specifically communicate their dietary needs?
I'm getting married in December, I've lived with my fiance since like 2004, and I STILL cant fart in front of him. He can in front of me, and I laugh every time because I am 12, but I haven't worked up the nerve to just go for it.
How can I overcome my fart fear?
What are you doing for the 3 day weekend?
i am going with my SO to visit his mom and his sister in Miami.
I just got a new phone! What kind of phone and service do you have?
I have Verizon and I just got an enV. it's red.
What kind of shoes do you have on today?
black reef flip flops
Who watched President Obama speak last night?
Okay. Im going to Jamaica in two weeks. I havent been on a plane in 4 years. How early do you think i should get to the airport? I'll be at Logan if that matters. And my flight leaves at 8am.
I've been reading the American Airlines website, but i still have some questions about what i can bring in my carry on bag. It says "Common bic style lighters may only be carried on." Does that mean i cant pack a lighter in my luggage? it has to be in my carry on bag? would they freak out if i packed like 4 lighters? Can i carry on cigarettes in my bag? Can i bring like 5 packs of cigarettes in my luggage?
And finally, has anyone ever been to Couples in Negril Jamaica?
Thanks for any help!
What are your favorite webcomics? I like Sinfest and xkcd.
My pets are currently taking turns chasing each other around the house. There is something incredibly hilarious about a 10lb Siamese cat chasing a 65lb mutt.
Do you ever get on a kick where you watch the same movie over and over again? I've been watching Mean Girls every day for the past five days.

Let's assume that the class was a lecture, so attendance was never taken.
Im still a bit drunk now
Whats the stupidist/most embarrasing thing you've done when drunk?
and, yes, i know about pescatarianism, so you don't have to tell me. :D
EDIT: what i'm trying to ask is, what are some reasons that vegetarians eat fish?
EDIT2: i am not a vegetarian myself. i saw the word pescatarian recently and i looked it up and wondered this to myself, because my dad has looked to me before for all the answers on "hip" culture. you know, because i go to college, so i'm educated on all things, ever. i didn't write this entry to start arguments. i am curious.

Does anyone else LOVE the musical Evita? Like, obsessively? As in seen it three times on stage, got loads of cast recordings, and watch the film time and time again?
And if yes: Who is your favourite Evita? Mine is Elena Roger, with Patti Lupone coming a close second.
So, any horror stories about deposits when renting?

I have a job interview today with someone named Shamila and have no idea how I should pronounce her name when I ask for her.
2. What's your favorite mnemonic learned in school? I think I liked "Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally," for equations.
3. For those of you with etsy sites - How do you handle taxes when it comes time to file? Do you just not report that income? Do you decide whether you'll report your income based on how much money you've made?
I'm getting ready to open up my etsy site and I'm not sure about that part of it.
Would you pronounce the name Juli as Julie or July?
If cremated, what do you want done with your ashes?
If buried, where?
Is there something else I missed?
You open your mouth, a sentence comes out. Only one problem. The words are in the wrong order, but the results are entertaining.
For example, today I meant to say:
Damn! New shirt, hole in it!
What came out:
Damn! New hole, shirt in it!
Maybe I am just an idiot, but this came across as pretty funny to me. ^-^
So TQC, what examples do you have of things you meant to say that came out wrong, but hilariously?
Are there any special home remedies that most people probably don't know about, but you find work well?
So far, I've just been eating raw ginger. Owch, but it's effective.

I visualize the year in a color-coded linograph, starting with December.... December to March is purple, April to August is yellow, September to November is red-orange.

How about a flex plan? Do you use it? For what? Do you like it?
You HAVE to go streaking somewhere, or else, vague yet certain bad things will happen. You have no choice. Here's your selection of possible locations to run around in the buff (for at least 5 minutes or until subdued). You get a 'get out of jail free' card and all fines will be paid for. You cannot wear a mask or conceal your face. Where will you exhibit your birthday suit?

I need to clean out the fridge, wash dishes and remove the hard drive from two computers sitting in my car. What are you procratinating from doing by being here?
1. ...are they serious?! BECAUSE I AM SO SERIOUS.
2. I really like that mall. How can I continue to shop in that mall without getting arrested for trespassing or something?
3. Where have you been banned from?

So I am going to be in a play tonight. I have a pretty big part. It is my first play ever outside of elementary school. I am terribly, terribly nervous. I am the kind of person that will ditch school to get out of an oral presentation, take an F over giving a speech. My friend is directing the play and kind of guilt tripped me into doing it, otherwise I would not be in this position.
So my questions are:
1. Have you ever been in a play?
2. How nervous were you for your first play? How well did you do?
3. Do you have any advice or tips for not throwing up on stage? Or helping with nerves? When I'm nervous, I get really shaky and I stutter and I talk too fast. I don't know what I can do to help that!
Mine is "We need to talk".
Where do you buy your jeans?
Would you like some of my key lime pie?
If I wash my hair every other day, my hair is really full and beautiful when I wash it.
Is there something I can wear every other day to cover my rat's nest? By the end of Day 1 my hair is getting oily. On Day 2 is disgusting, but I can't wash it just yet!

Anyone else really miss the (America's) old $5 bill from a decade-ish ago or is that just me?
My best freind was recently in NYC and somone told him that having like 3 drinks is considered going on the tare..( as in llike a session i dono what you people say)

Supposing McCain gets elected. He is a little old, so let's say he dies and Sarah Palin becomes president.

I'm considering voting for him now, myself.
1. Where is the strangest place you gave a shit? I say gave a shit because took a shit doesn't make sense to me unless you are taking it away with you.

They let him take it but then fired him the next day.
I told him he should file a complaint with the department of labor. Should he? Also, is there anyone else he could contact?
This isn't about suing so much as stopping them from treating future employees like crap. Other instances my boyfriend had to deal with before this was a $500 shortage in pay that they took months to pay him and an on the job injury that they told him he couldn't get workers comp for since he got it "sitting down."

There's a show tonight that I'd like to go to. However, it starts late and it's in a somewhat questionable neighborhood, it's half an hour away and I'd be going alone. But they're one of my favorite bands, I've seen them twice already. They'll probably be playing a lot of stuff off of their new album, which I haven't really listened to. If I go I probably won't be home til midnight, and I've got to be awake at a relatively reasonable hour tomorrow.
Should I go or not?
Edit: Issue resolved. My mom (i.e., the owner of the car I'd drive) basically said, "No fucking way, you'd get yourself raped." So there's that.
what pairings do you like and why?
Edit: Got it, thanks anyway.
