Urbandictionary.com has a million and five different definitions for the phrase "tool."
TQC, would you please define "tool"? In your opinion, what makes someone a tool?
On the another note, how do I tell my friend to back off my man crush?
SRS and NONSRS answers welcome :D
TQC, I'm bored out of my mind. I'm kinda afraid to go to downtown (State College) alone because Penn State just won and all my friends' facebook updates say it's crazy. What can I do? Should I just go to bed? :-\
Inspired by a post below
What's the nicest thing someone's ever done for you?
Inspired by the question below this one, will you go to urbandictionary.com, type in your first name, and post the first definition here?
Why does everyone hate emos so much?
Some time ago - all right, closer to two years - I saw on MTV a Star Wars clip. Darth Vader was singing, members of Jedi Council were playing and LOTS of stormtroopers (or clones) were dancing. It was completely computer graphics.
I missed the title of the clip and didn't recognize the song. Can anyone name it?
Psychologically, what is it that makes someone believe they're always right?
Then when they're wrong they just feel like stupid asses and are embarassed but need to be right so they usually can't admit they're wrong because their ego is too hurt.
But I'm really curious. Nobody is always right (duh) so it can't be like...having always been right that makes someone like that. Not really a trial and error process.
Do you know people like that? If they're so strongly like that, do you openly deny them? (Which will further peeve them.) Or get past it and ignore it? (Smile and nod?)
Are YOU always right!? lol
which soundtrack to which film do you want to buy?
i bought wonderland and it was brilliant. i also want juno.

Has anyone else here been playing Fable 2? Do you love it? Will you tell me about how you're playing it, and what your character is like?
I want to carve a pumpkin to take over to my boyfriend's house on Halloween (we're handing out candy together in his neighborhood because he's got a million kids living nearby and I have like, none). What should I carve on it? I want a neat design. I've got the fancy tools and I'm not bad at it, so it can be elaborate, but not *too* elaborate.
I'm at a party.
A cop has been outside for the last two hours banging on windows etc. saying various names and threats. I figure if he has been here since 1am, he doesn't have anything. I'm sober. Should I just leave?
Legally, what can the fuzz do to me?
ETA: FUCK IT I AM GTFO.
My new question is, when I hop the fence and run should I wear my viking horns?
What is something weird/unusual that you liked to do as a child?
I loved to cover ant hill holes and watch the ants scrambling around wondering WTF happened to their entrance back to their abode. You could almost tell they were pissed off -and- confused, haha.
how easy is it to be prescribed some sort of sleep aid? it's 4am and i have work at 9am, and i can't see myself sucking it up and going. the same thing happened last weekend and i called in sick twice, so if i call in again my work will understandably not be happy with me at all. but i just can't make myself sleep. this has pretty much been the story of my life, and i would like to be a reasonably functional person so if you could offer any kind of advice and/or personal anecdotes i'd appreciate it.
We now get the view over here, and upon initially watching it I thought "whhhhy the hell is there a show of these annoying women (sans Whoopi) yabbering on about shit?!". But they've actually yabbered on about some more actual information since. It's still not cutting-edge political commentary though. What do you think of the view?
What is that blonde chick, and what is her claim to fame?
Do you love it when she gets so upset and defensive? Do you love it when it looks like she's going to cry? I do. Oh baby yeah, gimme tears.
I have when she prattles on about McCain/Palin though, and gets away with it, and I want to stab her in the neck with a fork (I did this on my tv screen, but it just wasn't satisfactory). Who do you want to stab in the neck with a giant fork?
I would totally sex-up Whoppi Goldberg. What daytime tv personality would you sex-up? (If you don't like women/men, pretend to. You don't get a choice in the matter; I'm holding the big fork in your direction).
If you have a life and don't watch the view, screw you.
I have a friend who is a total camera whore. anytime I have my camera or my camera phone near me, she insists on taking (and also me taking) a thousand and one pictures of her. mostly they're just dumb ~cutesy~ poses where she looks basically the same in every pic. then she wants me to take the time to upload and send all 589620199052 of her myspace-esque pictures to her.
do you have a friend who is a camera whore? if not, what's a trait in your bff that annoys you?
it tqc good at finding things?
where's my label maker?
i think i just perforated my eardrum
I was cleaning my ears with a q-tip (i know that's bad to do) and I kind of slipped and jammed my ear pretty good. Google has failed me in my quest for self diagnosis until I can see my doctor. It says this is generally very painful, and while it hurt when I did it and it hurts when I hiccup or yawn with my mouth closed, it doesn't hurt at all otherwise...it just feels blocked and I can still hear out of it 90%
Has anyone had a perforated eardrum before?
Does this sound like what is wrong with mine?
Is it possible to just bruise your eardrum and make it swell a bit?
ETA: It also bled a little bit after I did this but it is not bleeding any more.
Are you looking forward to the end of daylight savings time next week?

How would you feel if your boyfriend were legally married, but had been separated from his wife for a little under a year? For the most part, you knew about it up front.
Would it bother you if he still talked to her on a pretty regular basis (once a week maybe)? (Assume they have no children together.)
What is the WEIRDEST looking fruit/vegetable you have come across in your supermarket?
Where do you live?
Have you ever had a cashier comment on the cost of an item you were buying? What did they say? Did it seem weird to you?
Today the cashier said something like "$11 for this?!" about the cheese I bought. So I told her it was delicious, and she said it didn't matter.
Let's say you pass out while on the toilet. Maybe you had too much to drink, maybe you're just sick, or you can invent your own scenario. Anyway, you hit your head on the wall and hurt yourself pretty badly. Who is the person that you least want to come to your rescue?
How old is too old to trick or treat?
Do you hand out candy? what kind?
If you don't hand out candy do you turn off all your lights and pretend not to be home?
I recently had to have a new hard drive put into my macbook.
However, if I go to 'About this Mac' it tells me I have only 1GB of memory.
I went into the disk utility thing to format it all, but then chickened out, so my question is,
will formatting the Macintosh HD remove everything? (OS etc)
What steps will I have to take to get it back to how it was before it got ill? I have everything on time machine.

i have a fondue pot i've never used, but i want to try it. i'm not a fan of the idea of dipping things in cheese and eating them, that doesn't seem healthy, and neither does chocolate (if I'm going through all this work I want dinner). can I just throw some beef broth in there and cook things in it? what's good to cook in beef broth? got any other fondue advice?
Sometimes at work I see little kids eat popcorn off the floor. This is funny to me but also disgusting.

For my film class, we have to write a paper comparing, stylistically/cinematographically (pretend that's a word), one of the movies we watched in class with another movie of our choice, either of the same director or in the same genre. So can you fine, upstanding citizens of TQC give me a few movie suggestions that would be excellent to compare to one of the following films?
a) Citizen Kane (Orson Welles)
b) La Grande Illusion/The Grand Illusion (Jean Renoir)
c) Rear Window (Alfred Hitchcock)
Thank you, TQC!

I'm a Bengals fan and they're 0-7. We're happily going to get the #1 draft pick, but the Lions are trying to challenge us for worst team, as they threw today's game to be 0-7 too. They're competing for the worst team!? That #1 pick is ours, you pricks! We'll lose the next 9 games to safeguard that selection.
Q: What can I do as a fan to help the Detroit Lions win a game so that my Bengals can continue their trend in being THE suckiest excuse for a professional team in '08?
I have some free time today. I'm so excited that I don't know what to do with it.

So I just walked in on my sister and her boyfriend doing the nasty.
I also un-intentionally ratted them out to my mom, because I was on the phone with her when I did it.
Mom: "Honey, can you see if your sister is still in bed? She's not answering her phone."
Me: "Sure Mom, let me open her door andAUUUUGH."
But that is just a bonus.
How do I un-see what I have seen?!

Hi Dr. Livejournal. I've had a dull but consistent pain in my throat since yesterday morning, but I have no cough or runny nose. What else could it be? Serious and non-serious answers plz.
My brother has announced that he and his wife are splitting up, their daughter has just turned 13 and I need to get her a gift. She doesn't yet know that her parents are splitting.
Any ideas for good presents for a bookish, intelligent 13 year old girl who has problems making friends and is just about to go through a horrible emotional upheaval?
Also, down here in Oz I need to put in my tax in the next few days. I give a monthly donation to a charity and they were supposed to have sent me the receipt last week, I really need the money but am not sure if I can claim it without the receipt. I'll be lodging it electronically so don't need to mail off all the docs, but am still uncertain.
What should I do?
I've been having problems with depression and anxiety lately and have started taking St. Johns Wort for it, it's worked for me before so i figured it would again. In the past week or two my appetite has suddenly gone from tiny to horse-like. I'm not craving anything in particular, I'm just always hungry.
I've never had this happen before and am not sure if it's the depression, anxiety or some other random thing.
What are your thoughts?
Oh my god you guys I did something stupid and now I'm freaking out and sick to my stomach because I think I killed my computer.
I was cleaning my keyboard and accidentally hit the sleep button. When I tried pressing on my keyboard to wake the computer back up I got the fucking blue screen of death. It said to reboot so I did. And now I get this message:
"Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key."
I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK THAT MEANS.
You guys I do so much work on my computer for work that I'm crying, lol. What the hell do I do?

Me? God, I have a whole list. I was never able to see what anyone found so striking about Brad Pitt; Keanu Reeves reminds me of a brain-damaged monkey; Cameron Diaz makes me want to tear out my own eyes; and Ashton Kutcher -- well, let's not even go there.

Which is worse:
posting twice in a row and leaving it or posting twice in a row and then deleting the second post?
Look around you, RIGHT NOW.
If zombies attacked, would you be safe? If not, where is the closest place you could run to that WOULD be safe? Why is it safer?
Also, in the room you are in right now, what would be the best weapon to use against the zombies?

Would you rather write an essay or sit a timed exam?
I was at the OSU-Penn State game last night and somebody in my section was tearing ass like mad.
If you're in a big crowd and you know you could get away with it without the blame going right to you... do you fart or hold it.
What about when you're in public by yourself? Like in the mall... if you can let the little one slip do you?
Share a funny fart story! I love toilet humor
So, what's something you like to do that nobody around understands for some reason?
To answer my own question, I supposedly enjoy reading boring books. Who would have known?

Do you ever get anxious about doing something seemingly mundane in front of other people?
I hate cooking if anyone else is watching. I always feel like they are judging me. I can't stand it when people make suggestions on how I could change what I'm cooking - and it's not that I couldn't use the tips, I just get really embarrassed.
when you turn your car on, with how many pistons does it return the favor?

Who has House macros? Can I see?
TQC, should I make little Halloween treat bags for the kids at work?
I've already bought the actual bags and plastic spider rings, but I'm reconsidering. It's a pretty well-off area and a good portion of the kids are really spoiled. 5 out of the 6 second graders have cell phones. Several of the kids are quite rude and entirely ungrateful. I won't be at work on Halloween. I'm paid terribly. I will probably end up wasting 1.5 days pay on them if I make them.
Would you make them?
I wish there was some way I could only make them for the nice kids, too bad there isn't =[
why do you dress like one of those goth chicks? you trying to embarrass me?
Ever sexed someone for fun with no intentions of hanging out with said person again but instead, you sexed for fun then got vuurrry serious?

What should I bring with me for lunch tomorrow? Classes, all day. Will barely have time to eat.
I’m an intern in the UC Berkeley Gender Equity resource center, and I’m helping organize a workshop centered upon the analysis of media portrayals of domestic violence/abuse, entitled “Comedy or Crisis: What is so funny about domestic violence?” Our plan is to show clips of domestic violence and have attendees rate and discuss the seriousness of the proceedings in each clip.
Any suggestions are requested and welcomed! I’m also desperately searching for any short clips (preferably humorous, and through youtube, sidereel, etc, although these qualifications aren’t necessary) that depict domestic violence in lgbt relationships or with men as victims (both hetero and homosexual). If anyone has any thoughts or interesting information about these specific types of domestic violence that would also be much appreciated. Thanks!
(If anyone has or knows how to find a specific clip from Family Guy, The Simpsons, American Dad that provides a good example of male victim domestic violence that would be really helpful too!)
Trillian, the combined messenger program..
Do you use it?
Do you like it? Why or why not?

1)Do people put up Halloween lights in your neck of the woods?

My sister who doesn't like milk keeps an ice cube tray of frozen milk in the freezer for when people come over. This is so she doesn't have to defrost a whole bottle, just enough for the person who's there. I think this is a genius idea.

Say you go to a bar and end up meeting this random cute stranger. After a few drinks and what not cute stranger invites you back to his/her place. Now, even after you had a few drinks in you, you notice that this stranger does not have a bed. Random cute stranger then proceeds to fold out the sofa, into ta da-a bed! Does this deter you from sleeping with them? Or prefering fold out couches do you readily hop in and get your groove thang on? Or do you just laugh and end up sleeping on a chair because you find fold out couches disgusting and loathsome?
Also, Ipod Nano or Zune? Why?

TQC, what should I do to make myself less nervous?
1. Have you ever read "Steal This Book"? If so, what is your favorite trick?

3. Would you ever wait in a movie theater bathroom to see another movie for free?
