First off i understand that Obama is African American but why is race such an issue? shouldn't we be focusing on his view first off and his color of skin second off.
personally i find it disgusting that race is seriously this big of an issue

And if you dont mind answering who are you voting for and why? (no simple answers, such as 8 years is enough or time for a change. Real answers TQC)

Its coming close to McCain or not voting not becuase i like him but i completely disagree with what Obama wants the gun laws for this country to be.

*edit*

Obama wants to add more onto the Clinton semi auto ban to include all semi auto weapons that some such as myself use for hunting

Let's go gay for a minute, just for fun

For the guys:
Please name one man that you would (theoretically) go gay for. An actor, musician, et cetera.
Now which fictional character would you do it with?

For the ladies:
Please name one woman that you would (theoretically) perform a <lesbian act with.
Now which fictional character would you do it with?

For those who just absolutely refuse to admit to their sexual desires for someone of the same sex:
Would you let someone of the same sex perform a sex act on you (blowjob, handjob, cunnilingus, etc)?

ETA: If you're gay/lesbian, name someone you would go straight for, plzkthnx.

Hey TQC,

So, I've got a paper due tomorrow afternoon, and I haven't even come close to finishing it. It's 1.30amish, hereabouts, and the coffee is wearing off, I'm tired - but I don't want to waste too much time sleeping and risk not getting this finished.

So - how many hours of sleep is the minimum useful amount to be able to function the next day?

(After I hand this sucker in, I can totally come home and sleep, too.)

Any tips on staying alert and writing a good paper when tired, stressed, facing a deadline, and not completely confident that you know the material well?

I feel like they won't cause they know I don't want them cause Ike didn't come.
I could leave it for the next storm but I need the money.


Also,

My friends are throwing me a party on Friday to celebrate my 21st birthday. I was planning on partying it up all night and staying at that house. Today I learned we have a Store meeting at 7am on Saturday. Then I work at 12. Should I just not sleep and hate life all day Saturday? Or should I just tell them it might not work and possibly reschedule?

Throwing the party on Saturday is not an option.

I apologize if this has been asked recently, but I didn't see it in the first two pages of TQC questions.

Regarding the new Spore game, is it only playable when you're online, or can you actually play it solo and unplugged? I know the options would be greater while connected, but I'm considering buying it for my laptop, which isn't connected to the 'net most of the time (no wireless at home).

wtf is .flac?

Sorry for another post so soon after my previous one, but I need halp. I downloaded a torrent of an album, and when it finished and I opened the folder to put the songs in my iTunes, I see that they're all ".flac" files. I have no idea what these are, but they won't play in my iTunes. Wtf? Can I fix this? Or will I have to find a new torrent? :(

What are some of your shorthand notes when writing down heaps of shit in a very short period of time?

My examples:
R with a circle around it stands for Right
L with circle around it stands for Left
Arrow pointing up is increase (down is decrease)
Diff is different
Ax is "on assessment"
Tx is "on treatment"
And arrow to the side (eg. x->y) means something start off from x and turned/reached y. It could also mean x eventually = y or something like that.

Dear TQC,

Last night after I went to bed I received two calls from a number I don't recognize (and googling it just comes up saying the number is from the city I work in, and probably a cell phone), both at 11:54pm. They also left me a creepy voicemail talking about how they watch me, can't wait to see me again, etc., etc., basically saying they stalk me and that they love me. They knew my first name as well, and the voice sounds KIND OF familiar, but I can't place it.

TQC, what should I do? Should I call the number back? Ignore it? PRETEND NOTHING EVER HAPPENED? It's kind of creeping me out, especially since now all of a sudden I keep receiving calls from OTHER numbers I don't recognize. :(

From time to time, I get this really bad pain in my ribs; it's most often on the right-hand side. A sharp pain that escalates quickly into being severe enough that it's difficult to stand/do things (I most often sit or lie down until it passes) and which will gradually spead up to include my right shoulder and diaphragm area. The pain is kinda similar to what you get when you have really severe indigestion, except I've had that too and I know the difference, and in particular this is very specifically in the rib area and not the stomach.

I've mentioned this a few times to doctors but it's vague enough that they don't really know what to make of it. It's something that I've experienced for many years, as far back as I can remember. It's not common; I'll have months, maybe longer, between episodes. But they're acute when they do come.

Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? After twenty-five years I'm reasonably confident it's not anything fatal, but I'd really love to get some clue as to what's going on.

Note: When I was seven, I broke seven ribs down that side. I can't help thinking this might be related, but I can't remember for sure if I had these symptoms prior to the accident or not. We're talking eighteen years ago though, the ribs have long since healed, and I'm not sure why it would be such an occasional thing if there was something that hadn't healed right. I also used to have a friend who had the same symptoms, and had never broken any ribs.

Egyptian wall "torches"

My sister in law is decorating her living room with Egyptian stuff, and wanted some electric wall sconces or torches.

I've only found one so far, which isn't really the right "look". And all the others I've seen are just for "Egyptian crystal"

Can anyone point me towards them? Something with scarabs, serpents, or one of the gods would be best. Needs to be electric, too, so no candle holders.

TQC, I am an idiot.

I have GERD, but because my Prilosec makes me constipated, I avoid taking it a lot.  However, over the last 3 days, my torso has felt like I've been digesting broken glass and sharpened knives.  I broke down and got my Prilosec refilled and am on my 2nd day of the 14 day course.  It also means that I'm stuck eating brown rice, broccoli and boiled chicken until my stomach can take anything with flavor.

Do you ever do something to avoid a negative reaction, only to wind up making things way worse?  Will you tell me about one of those times?

I opened the back door to and as soon as I did they they jumped up on the screen door and started barking and snarling. They've been prancing around for the last 15 minutes. What should I do?

They're also having a nice game of barking tag with the neighbours dog. It's really annoying.

Halloween.

1. Would you love to go to a Halloween party where there was a theme and it limited the era/style of your costume? Or would you be all "Ok, Hitler, I'm going to pass and do what I want."

2. If you think it's restrictive and lame, would you go to a regular Halloween party, and then a few weeks later attend a themed costume party hosted by the same people?

My husband and I can't decide between parties and wondering if people would be tired of dressing up in November since it's right after Halloween, or if people would be put off by "having" to dress up a certain way for Halloween.

Granted, there's always oodles of Halloween parties/bar events each year so it's not TOO restrictive but you know, I just wanted a general idea.


ETA: OKAY so let's say it will be in November, middle of the month. Would you be as excited about it if I had also invited you to a Halloween party two weeks earlier?

Should we just hold off on the speakeasy party? The 18th amendment WAS passed by Senate on my birthday so.... there's always that (in December).

How long have you known your "oldest" friend?

Fifteen years. I just went out with her today, she's the best!

Do you say "I love you" to your friends?

Only to some of them

What do you use for school? Binders, spiral notebooks or composition books?

I'm left handed and hate binders, but I'm tempted to get one to organize my stuff for a science class that I have.

eh, and why not one more: Are you a lefty or a righty?

LEFTY

for those of you who love music - i've gotten real into ratatat, simian mobile disco, daft punk, brazilian girls - so what other artists are similar that i can download?

and if you cant answer that what's your favorite genre and band/artist/group from said genre?

Confused

Would you be angry if your SO got a job doing modeling for a fine arts school? What if it was nude modeling?
(by the way you are really really broke and could use the $15 an hour it pays)


How do you feel about people who model naked for fine arts schools?

I'm using windows xp and using the search function to find all picture files so I can move them to one folder.

When I try to click and drag it says it cannot read from the source file or disk. Any idea how I can get round this?

TQC, my SO's awesome hobbity librarian mom sent me a $50 B&N card for my 22nd birthday. For once, I have all the textbooks I need for my 19 credits of English courses, so I'm able to spend it on Cool Stuff instead of literary editing and publishing books. WOOTNESS ABOUNDS.

So far, I'm thinking I'll get:
Sputnik Sweetheart - Haruki Murakami
maaaaaybe Lullabies for Little Criminals - Heather O'Neill (have you read this? What did you think?)

Question 1: what other books do you think I should try? (Taste guideline: I adore Douglas Coupland, Janet Fitch, Peter S. Beagle, Dave Eggers and Chuck Klosterman. I can't stand Chuck Palahniuk.)

Question 2: similar, but if you've read one or both, what do you think of Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys and/or Fragile Things? I've read American Gods, Stardust and Good Omens and loved American Gods most of all, but have never read any of his other work. I know I'm late to that party (I'm such a bad English major).

Question 3: should I spend all the money on books, or should I cave and split it between my snooty lit'rahtshure and Project Runway Season 2 on DVD?

I'm meeting up with a friend at a picnic bench. On the way I pass Burger King, Wendy's and Taco Bell. Which should I get?

a genderism? idk

I was watching the DIY channel and the show was directed towards women... and they spent a half hour segment just showing how to change a lighting fixture!!! I'm not all girl-power feminist or whatever the hell they call it, but I was kind of embarrassed for my gender at that moment.

What's something that you're proud of yourself for doing that would be considered traditionally for the opposite gender?

I was proud of myself for painting, installing carpeting and shelving, and assembling all the furniture in my room... when I was six months pregnant.

And I love boys who do dishes, just thought I'd throw that out there.
