TQC guys,

Would you be willing to wear a dress for an entire day and go about things as normal if there was no money involved?

If you'd do it for money, how much would it take, assuming you can't tell anyone why you're doing it until afterward?

If your significant other told you they would most likely get back together with their ex (a specific one was named) if the two of you didn't work out, how would you feel about that?

I was told this today and saw it as a huge red flag. I feel very hurt. He doesn't understand why in the world I feel as such.

How would YOU feel?


does anyone know where i can watch the movie "stepmom" online? i cant seem to find it anywhere and its way too late to go out and rent it or buy it. i really want to watch it. =]

Inspired by your_number1's post.

So, I have blonde hair except for the roots (2in right by the scalp, to be specific). It lightens as it grows out, I guess. This makes it look like my hair is perpetually unwashed, though. Is there any way to fix this without ruining the black streaks I have (one on either side of my face)?

How do you blow off a rather large (not really jiggly large, but tall) hormonal teenager for good without being raped/killed?
How do you blow off said teenager and keep him as a friend because he has good partying connections and a convincing fake ID, also without raping/murder?

If you don't care, when was the last time you had a horrible day and how did you make it better?
Mine was today and I've been slowly making it better by being at least mildly acidic towards anyone I feel is retarded. I know I practice great therapy methods.

OH. I watched Across the Universe the other day with one of my friends because neither of us could ever finish it before. We both came to the conclusion that it was less satisfactory than everyone said it was. Does anyone else feel this way and can you point out why you didn't like it?

Okay, did you read the backstory? So, based on this, everyone is being really cool about it, save for one person who is taking it as a personal attack against her. This person is really close to me and has done so much for me and saved my ass about a million times when it came to RL issues. She seems to think that me leaving was immature and selfish, when I'm seeing it as the other way around.

I don't want to lose this person as a friend, yet she won't accept any explanation that I'm giving her as anything more than excuses. What do I do to save the friendship we have?

I put a spell on you

I was just at the laundry mat and this huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge woman had taken almost all of the machines. Plus it was quite a task just to get *around* her. She started fussing and being annoying so the owners tried to tell her to leave. She started speaking in strange tongue and throwing her arms around. I think it was a curse or juju, or craziness. But just for fun lets say it was juju.

Validate me plz, TQC.

I have a 9 am lecture and a 10 am test today. The 9 am lecture has attendance (no specific number of days, just "come and participate") but he doesn't always take it and often when he does he thinks everyone's there when everyone clearly isn't. I can get the notes from a friend. I've missed a couple days but I don't make it a habit, and I haven't looked at these flashcards for my 10 am test for a while. Am I justified in skipping my 9 am in order to semi-cram for my 10 am?



Let's say that you have to die tomorrow in a freak accident.  You'll die doing whatever you love or whatever you have always wanted to do.  Conditions will be perfect just so fate can prepare for your death -- so it's possible to have snow in summer or anything extraordinary like that.  If you try to avoid doing what you love so you don't die, you'll end up dying in the worst way you can imagine.

What will you be doing when you die?

What is the worst possible way to die?
Getting stung by a swarm of bees.

I recall reading something a while ago about somebody finding John Lennon's "Imagine" offensive so the other day I googled something to the effects of "Is John Lennon's Imagine offensive" and found quite a few people feel that way.

Do you think the song is offensive/insulting?

If not, what do you think of people who do?

I think people who do are missing the point of it and being to sensitive. Their view is that he is saying everybody should be exactly the same and that religion etc. is bad. The way I see it he is singing about the things people have fought and killed over and how sad it is that they cause such violence and how nice it would be if these things that seem to cause such hatred in people didn't exist.

2) My knees have felt very uncomfortable lately when I bend them. They're fine when I walk, run, etc...but while at rest they have this tight, almost sore, uncomfortable feeling. Mostly when they're bent, it's still uncomfortable but less so when I straighten my legs. I'll see my doc if it keeps up, but any ideas as to what it could be? It's both knees.

UPS can suck it.

When you order something and have it shipped to you, do you save the packaging?
If the company you ordered from called you up two months after you received the order and asked what size the box was that your stuff came in, would you still have the box?

And TQC, would you validate me and back me up in my belief that UPS has finally lost its fucking marbles? They want me to call up every customer we've shipped to in the last two months and see if they have the boxes still, so we can get the dimensions. SERIOUSLY. That is what the supervisor suggested I do.

I'm taking care of my business at the urinal and the guy at the one next to me is yammering away on his cell phone.

I let loose with a fart loud enough that he pulled the phone from his ear and tried to muffle the phone against his shoulder. He then shot me a stern glance that falls into the "stinkeye" category (all puns intended).

I shot back with a glance that said, "You're yakking on the phone while in the lav and I'm the asshole?"

So, Who's the asshole?

Does your answer change if we posit that I purposely farted as loud as possible, just to fuck with him?

When does morning start?
When does evening start?
When does night start?

Basically, I want to know if you take the time into account or if it's the sun's position.

To me, morning begins with the sunrise, evening begins with the sunset, and night begins when it's completely dark.  2:00 in the morning is still night even though it's AM.  I've never had an in-depth conversation with my husband about it, but I remember he once maintained that evening begins at 6:00 regardless of whether the sun is out or not.

I've had two job interviews in the past week and a half (one last Friday and the other one yesterday), and they both said that I was a very strong candidate and that they'd be getting back to me soon. The one yesterday specifically said they probably had a position for me and had to talk to Human Resources before calling me back. Neither of them have called me yet, which kind of sucks because I only have 400 dollars to my name. Did I not get either of the jobs, or am I freaking out way too soon?

Collapse )

EDIT Oh well shit, new problem. The first job just called and said they were so happy with me, and sorry for the delay but the boss will be talking with his associates and getting back to me on Monday or Tuesday. They're only offering 500 a month to begin with and no work visa, basically to be an admin assistant/personal assistant for foreign business people coming to Panama. Like writing itineraries and stuff. The other place is offering me a work visa and, as such, has to pay me at least 850 a month according to Panamanian law. The position there is Assistant to the Program Manager, and I'll be working on introducing 3G technology (like iPhones and shit) into Panama.

Instinct tells me to wait it out for the second job, but the people at the first job are too too nice. Should I let them down, even though I don't definitely have that second job yet? What would you do in this situation?

Hopefully someone here is a recovering addict who can help me with a problem. I've been sober 6 years now. Yesterday I had minor surgery and realized right beforehand that they'd be giving me pain killers (obvious, I know, but I just then realized that they'd be getting me high and that's a *bad thing*). When I tried to talk to the nurse about my concerns she was very ignorant and patronizing - she didn't seem to understand the concept of "addiction" at all and actually laughed at the idea that I would get addicted to the medication they'd be giving me.

Anyway, I did get high off them, and I really liked it and that freaked me the hell out. Is there a better way to deal with stupid nurses in the future? Should I have not taken any pain killers?

ETA: I was not scared of getting addicted to THOSE SPECIFIC pain killers. They did not give me pain killers to take home. Addiction is not about being addicted to one specific drug, it's about being addicted to getting high and escaping reality.

Does it bother you when you miss one episode of your favorite TV shows? I have a hard time watching my shows if I miss an episode, I'd rather wait months for the repeats or even until it comes out on DVD to start over where I left off if I miss one.

Do any of you have a scale that WORKS? I've been through a few digital scales and they all seem to crap out and vary my weight between 5-10 lbs in the span of about 5 minutes.

Do you think an analog scale would work better? Halp. I just want something accurate.

You're walking through a parking lot sometime around 12 midnight. There's recently been a power outage and bad electrical storm, but you really needed to get some milk and bread because there's gonna be some snow tomorrow and God knows if you don't have milk and bread the world will fucking collapse in on itself and you'll be left folding clothes for Satan while being impregnated with his vile seed-- where was I? Oh yeah.

As you're walking through the parking lot, you start hearing an odd breathing noise, like several people are exhaling right behind you with no real sense of rhythm and like they're on the phone trying to find out what you're wearing. You turn to see just what the hell is making the noise, when a bolt of lightning strikes and you see what looks like your old childhood friend, armed with a large knife and covered in blood and rusted chains. His mouth opens and he tells you that the end is near for you, and that you should have bought the wheat bread [Assuming you bought white bread. If you normally buy wheat, pretend you don't.], because it has more fiber.

He also starts attacking you with the large knife in his hand, saying stuff about how you killed him and the damnation of his soul. Bearing all of this in mind, will you:

1- Tell him you'll buy the wheat bread, in the hopes that he'll get off of you?
2- Use Dark Charizard, to destroy him and his... whatever the hell is going on?
3- Double-click the power cord?
4- Not go shopping while clearly under the influence of drugs?
5- Remind him that Halloween is still a long ways away, and he should put that up?
6- Beat the hell out of him with the container of milk?

I have some Pastaroni (alfredo something) stuff I want to make, but it calls for 1 and 1/4 cup water, and 1/2 cup milk.  I have no milk! 

Should I just add more water?  Or forget all about it?  Will it taste super nasty?

I just had cashew brittle and it is amazing.  Just fyi.

I'm off to buy yarn. Will you wish me good luck in picking the perfect variety to finish the lap robe I'm making? What happens to be on sale will have a big impact on my purchase, so luck is def involved.

Do you like the Spin Spin Sugar song, in any/all of its incarnations?

If I get hired at this one place, I'll need a new pair of shoes to fit regs. Should I go buy the shoes now, to make sure they're not out of stock or something, and return them if necessary? Or should I wait until I get hired and then hope I can buy my shoes?

How often do you clean your shower/bath?

How often do you clean the sinks?

How often do you clean the toilets?

Roommate drama: after three weekends of asking my roommate to clean the shower (I've cleaned all of the above so far, she hasn't), what should I do to drive this point home?


People sneeze. What can I say to them?

"Bless you" sounds is religious, and "Gesundheit" has the same gist, but translates more directly to mean "good health."

What alternatives are there to acknowledging someone after their sneeze? I am pretty polite and like acknowledgment/well wishing, but it sounds so... well, cheese-ball.

Yes, I checked wikipedia and saw these..

For those who like taking photos

What kind of camera do you have?

Do you mostly use auto mode, or do you like to set things like the speed or aperture yourself?

Do you ever take photos on film rather than digital?

Will you show me a recent photo you're proud of, and the best photo you think you've ever taken?

Guys, I don't want to be in my house. It's 6:30 at night. I'm trying to get a hold of my friend but his phone was stolen. I have one-hundred-and-forty dollars to spend willy nilly. I kind of need clothes and an eyebrow wax, but other than that..what should I do?

How shitty was your day on a scale from one to ten?

lulz advice needed

TQC, I need your sage dating advice as I've been stuck in a bad dating rut since last August.

Guy I was dating pulled a classic, "Suddenly don't want a gf but I probably secretly wanted the sex you didn't give me". So whatever, I put myself back out there, no big deal.

I have a profile on OKcupid, as silly as it is. I'm really shy and I'm not good at meeting people. ANYWAY!

I had a really attractive guy contact me and we have a lot in common from Opera music, to sun conures. We decide to meet tomorrow for dinner and a movie. We are going to my favorite Vietnamese place in NYC as well as an IFC film. I'm excited to say the least.

TQC, my problem is that when I meet people from offline, I'm really shy and I guess I come off as awkward. What advice would you have for me so I have a chance of this working out?

If you have a job, what was the last time you argued with a customer? What was the outcome? Did it make you want to kill things like it made me want to kill things?

(Long story short: I work in advertising, and between the last business year and this, we raised our rates across the board. I had a customer who simply could not understand this and accused me of charging JUST HIM more money. He proceeded to insult me and condescend to me. I almost hung up on him.)

Debate question: is anyone here being forced to watch the debate against their will? I was going to watch it anyway, but man, having to take notes on it for a class because it'll be on the exam is balls.

Is the truth right in front of us?

First off I believe we are all one. And the whole point of life is to win it by coming together as one. To be able to say "We won"
Sound is everyTing :) and that they are both like water because they both have waves, and both represent change. (Music) 

Ok so I highly enjoy disecting words.  I believe that words should be broken down the same way food is broken down to be digested.
After all words are food for thought. The same way the 6 sided box(our prison) is broken down to break dance on.
That said.. I just want to know what you guys think of this little "explanation" of cats and dogs and the letter "E"

"E" stands for Everything, by the way:
Everything, Everyone, Existence, Electricity, Evolution, Ego, Earth, Ears, eYes. Emotions, Equality, Empty Etc...
It's the 5th letter of the alphabet and 5 senses make our reality. 5 fingers on One hand for the High 5 in the sky.
With that, it gives a whole new meaning to E. That yes it IS the 5th letter, but it represents Everything.

FelinE- [Fel-in-E]. It hurts to fall in E and be Exposed to Everything. It makes you Empty. (Me"OW")
CaNine- [See-a-Nine]- the divine nine will protect you from the pain with ("Bark")
Is this a coincidence? Dog spelled backwards is God, and a dog is man's best friend.
And I think life is a mirror because he created Man in his exact image -which  then makes even more sense.

So cats scratch and bring pain when you are Empty and the dog comes and chases them away.
In the Bible King Nimrod unites the Kingdom of Babel under one language. As I am sure that is what this sounds like to many.

I just want to know what you guys think. If you think I'm on crack so be it lol. Just tell me HOW it doesn't make sense please
this stuff actually haunts me.

Real Stupidity


TQC, was this the week from hell, or what?

Why do you suppose there's not more frontal male nudity in movies?

Is there an actor that would entice you to see a movie if you knew he'd be nekkid?
