If a UFO just landed in your backyard and aliens came out of it and offered to take you for a tour of the universe would you go with them?

The Catch
Going with them you would get to learn all the secrets of the universe see planets and new worlds no human would probably ever see, however you could never come back home to Earth.

If you were allowed to take one inanimate object, what would you take?

Volunteer work

Why do all the interesting Volunteer programs make you pay a 'participation fee'?

It really sucks as I have found a few programs that I would really love to volunteer in, but they ask for at least $2000 as a participation fee. I guess I will just keep looking

I need TQC's medical advice.

I hate this time of the year. All around me people have colds, sinus infections and nasty allergies and BOOM, out of nowhere my throat starts hurting/burning and I know in about two days it's going to turn into Bronchitis if I don't take care of it.

What are some ways that I can prevent this happening without going to the doctor? I can't try to get my doctor, but I am in between insurance plans and I work during his office hours.

So, the screen on my Razr broke! Everything works fine, screen just went on me. Is there anywhere that I can get a list of exact buttons to press to get to certain menus? Particularly how to send a text message? I tried doing it by memory, but I couldn't figure it out.

Do you think that technology is helping us move forward as a species (evolution wise...if you believe in that), keeping us stagnate, or pulling us backwards?


I hope that makes sense.
I feel like now that we have so many different types of technology, so many luxuries, that its keeping us from using our minds to its full capacity, and is thus keeping us stagnate. We are not evolving into more intelligent beings... we're too accustomed for having things think for us.

Ya know what I mean?

What are your thoughts, TQC?

DID YOUR TUBES JUST FAIL?

Did your internet connection fail around 12:40 AM (midnight) EST today (Thursday, October 23)?

Is there a website and/or tool that's better than Internet Traffic Report for monitoring global internet activity?

I've confirmed that people in Maryland, Wisconsin, and California, using different ISPs, all failed simultaneously, only to come back up a short while after. Even my cell phone, which is on Verizon (same as my DSL), failed at the same time.

In my case, I was only able to fix my problem, about 30 minutes later, by having my password reset (for some reason the glitch changed it).

What's strange is that at first, it simply failed to initiate a PPPoE session, THEN 20 minutes later it complained about a bad password. About 10 minutes after my internet came back up, it went back down again with a password (authentication) error, but it came back up just fine 5 minutes later without me doing anything.

Reverse stereotyping? 

I was watching a show on comedy central today(Can't remember what it was) But they made a joke about how it's funny that racist white people(not all white people)  don't like Obama because he is half black but if you break down McCain/Palin they fit the black stereotype more than Obama does.

This is what they said

McCain is a former prisoner who has cheated on his wife and married a woman almost 20 years younger than himself.
Palin is a gun toting crazy woman with 5 kids, one of which is knocked up outside of marriage.

The show was starring David Allen Grear, it was supposed to be a joke

Does anyone else find this funny?

Why does one of the kittens keep pissing on my bed and blankets? They've been great about using the litter boxes for the last three months, and suddenly this last week has been whizz city.

And yes, I've been washing or using the enzyme stuff, and it hasn't been in the same place that I've noticed, so I doubt it's because of smell.

Hello internet! Perhaps you can help settle a disagreement:
Every 1-3 months or so I get a headache that no OTC pain med can help. After a few hours, like clockwork, i get extremely nauseous and then puke. After the barfing i feel GREAT, headache disappears, full of energy, never better.
This has been happening since i was a kid.
My sister insists that because of the puking, it's a migraine.
My mom insists that it's probably just that i have an unfortunate physical reaction to headaches.

So is this more like a headache or a migraine? What do you think?

But pictures of real people he actually talks to? I duno about that... What should I do about this innappropriateness, TQC? Delete them? Post one as wallpaper so that he knows I found them?

Does anyone know of a PC version of Monopoly that supports online play with up to at least 8 players, any of which can be replaced with an AI player? Running under XP is optimal, but not required. My own research suggests no such game exists for PC or any game console with online play, but I thought I'd ask in case I'm missing a version.

To stick with the theme... Has anyone here ever played in Monopoly national or world championships?

I need help thinking of questions to ask my musician friends for a project I'm doing. Questions like: "What band was the very first band that influenced you to play music." or "Elvis or The Beatles?" or "There are two types of people in this world, those who like Neil Diamond and those who don't. So, do you like Neil Diamond? Why or why not?" Stuff like that...anything music related, anything that will give either a short answer or medium sized answer, nothing that'll make them write a giant paragraph. DEFINITELY anything that might inspire a funny answer. I'm looking for more of the "Elvis or Beatles" type questions than anything..

So! What are some questions I can ask them?

does anyone have a handicap liscence plate for  no real reason?
-yes i do. a while ago we only had my car and my mom drove it sometimes and she needed it. now im too lazy to go get another liscence plate

does anyone else who has one, or even doesnt use handicap parking although they dont need it?
-no. it makes me mad when people do it because of my mom. its not like its so painstaking for people with no problems to walk another couple feet.


when my mom was younger and didnt look it, she still had pretty bad arthritis and had a handicap decal. she told me funny stories where one time she got kicked out of a bar because she didnt look handicap and he thought she was lying. i think she then called the registration or the dmv or something and proved herself and the guy looked like an ass. and then another time she was in the grocery store with her mom, who also had one and was sick, and some most likely drunk guy harassed them all the way into the grocery store and even inside about how they shouldnt have parked where they were. they had two decals and one liscence plate one. lol who goes around yelling at old ladies and their daughters?
just thought id add that.

and also can i get in trouble for having the handicap thing although i never use it and there is a small chance my mom might have to drive my car for some reason?

beefing up the recipe book

what's your favorite dish that mom used to make? or still does make? or you wish she used to make?

i don't know what to make for dinner tonight so i thought this might help.
*edit* bonus points for having the recipe ;)

i'll share my favorite too. it's as delicious as it is easy!

mom's pot roast

1 onion (i use yellow)
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 beef roast
1 packet of au jus gravy
3 cups of water
1 bag of baby carrots (or any desired amount)
a few tablespoons of flour (for thickening the gravy)

chop the onion and place in large pot with olive oil and meat on medium heat. brown on both sides. add au jus and water. cook on low heat for at least 3 hours. add the carrots about half an hour before it's done.

once it's done remove the roast, carrots, and onions from the pot.

in a small cup mix the flour and some water to make a thick liquid and slowly stir into the juices in the pot. turn the heat up and bring the gravy to a boil, stirring constantly.

serve with mashed potatos however you like them.

What's Going on With Youtube?

Ok, maybe someone here can help me or has experienced this. I'm using Photobooth on my Macbook to make videos. Sometimes, when I put them on youtube, they cut off after a few seconds and no matter what I do, even if I reupload them, they do the same. I always keep them under the ten minute limit and they work fine when I play them in my computer. This doesn't always happen, though, and I'm at a loss as to why it's doing that. Maybe, I should look for another accessible video recorder or maybe, it's a weird youtube thing. Help would be appreciated.

another pathetic update to the okcupid debacle..

she just told me she's never dated a girl. she's never even kissed one, and she's 21. she's also not out at all.. which, from my experience, can lead to mega shit hitting the fan.

now, i'm not saying there's anything wrong with that but i have been through all the "coming out" stages and have been with, physically and relaitonship-wise, my fair share of women. i feel like i'm at a different point in my life than she is. also, i don't want to be some cooky experiment.

i feel like this might be a deal-breaker, but i feel like a jackass thinking that way at the same time.

would you ever consider dating someone in their 20s that's never had a relationship or any physical/sexual experience whatsoever?

I just stumbled upon some pro-life stuff on Facebook and read something along the lines of, "Having an abortion doesn't make you un-pregnant, it makes you the mother of a dead baby."


So, do you think women who have abortions (and don't have prior children) are mothers? In more than the biological sense, I mean.

The mystery of the clean car

1. I work in a private gated home, by boss is out of town, and my SO was at work all day. So, TQC....who washed my car for me? The only other people around were the house keeper (too busy) the driver (he left early and I saw him all day before that) the Gardeners, or the construction workers.

2. OMG Someone in my apartment building is cooking fish. Someone else is cooking cabbage. What only unholy smell combos have you come across recently?

do your friends younger siblings make you nervous?

mine do. i always feel like since i'm their older sibling's friend i have to be impressive, and i don't find myself too terribly impressive. like today my friend's younger brother got on my bus and i was SO nervous talking to him. thank god for chatty 18 year olds.

I just got a bill from my doctor for stuff that insurance didn't cover. I went in complaining of a numbness in my chest/lung and one of the charges on the bill is "Smoking and tobacco use counseling".

The only thing that was said about smoking during the appointment was when the nurse asked if I smoked and I said about a pack every 3 days.

She didn't respond, the doctor didn't mention it.

I have no idea if that's what my insurance isn't paying for, but it's around the same amount that they want me to pay them.

What would you do in this situation? Would you be mad about it? Would you just pay the bill?

A guy just knocked on my door and asked if I waned his adorable bulldog puppy, which he may have to give up.  Should I take the dog?  I want a dog, but I wasn't planning to get one until January and I wasn't planning to get a bulldog.

TQC, what would you do?
