Does that say something?
If McCain won and Obama lost, would it be the other way around?
if so, what do you think makes it so?
What do you find yourself talking about/discussing most of the time?
Also, don't you hate it when you're sleeping, it's super cold, you're wrapped in a comfortable warm blanket and suddenly you have toilet urges?
So why is it that Kung Fu Panda is coming out on Saturday?
Do you also think it's hilarious that almost every single question on this whole page of TQC is about the election? Do you also think it's awesome? :D
I really don't understand. I need these books soon and so I picked two day shipping but the delivery estimate is November 13th. HALP?
2. I have to work at 5am.. should I just pull an all-nighter?
I have to work at 6 actually, but I have to get up at 5 to do that. I got up at 8am today, worked from 12-7, went straight to the polls to vote, and got home around 8. Also, it is 12:23am for me right now.
Can we have some abortion wank to distract from election/marriage wank, plz?
How do you feel about abortion being legal/illegal?
OK GUYS!! Sorry, my news channel got it wrong, because I looked it up, and it's NOT passing. Hooray for either misstatements or listening comprehension!
What is your favorite anime?
Why is it your favorite?
What is your least fav? Why is it that?
Do you read manga along with watching anime?
What anime do you think is overhyped?
I didn't do any of my homework because I was watching history being made.
Do I pull an all-nighter to get it done or just go around screaming OBAMA all day tomorrow when teachers ask me about it?
I don't know if it's a local thing or not.
TQC, you don't think I look like Palin, do you??

Who would play the main characters? Who would direct it? Who would produce it? Would it even be feasible to make it with today's technology?
If you remember 9/11 where were you when you heard the news and what were you doing?
How much did it affect you?
would you hit it?
Now that Sarah Palin's lost her shot at vice presidency, what should she do to fill her time?
( Collapse )
How about the idea that America is going to become a totally socialist nation as soon as Obama takes over?
Who will you miss more: Sarah Palin with her IRL gaffes, or Tina Fay's portrayal of her?
*"1.3 million abortions a year in the u.s.

Who are these fuckers is San Francisco voting to ban gay marriage?
2. FOUR minutes before Charlie Gibson announced Obama's victory on ABC, my friend stuck connected our cable jack to some random cable cord with a BOBBY PIN, so not only did we watch all this live, we watched in on our television, which has never been hooked up to anything else but a DVD player! Is that crazy? Will my my cable (err, 13 channels) disappear tomorrow or will they make us start paying somehow?
Would you rather have toothache or ear ache?

2. What is something you have tried that you will never try again? Why?
Sea Urchin. OMG YUCK:X
3. Do you cook with an apron on?
Sometimes yes, when I remember
4. Do you think aprons are sexy?
updated? (I guess there are people in other countries that won't have to stay up all night to watch it though)
For Americans I guess you are kinda tired of the election questions by now so my very important question to you is, does Mountain Dew Code Red contain caffeine? Google is failing me and I can't peel off the label they have placed over the original ingredients list because if I do I won't be able to recycle it...
to me, it felt kind of desperate on their end... and very unfunny.
I tried to last year, and failed miserably. But I'm trying again this year. My word count is currently 17,092, which is a hell of a lot better then I was doing last year. My story is about twins, Jude and Benjamin, who never knew each other existed until they were eighteen, because their father took off when they were infants and took one of them with him. When they're eighteen, Jude's best friend moves in with her sister in LA, and finds out that Banjamin is their next door neighbor, which leads to a drama filled reunion.
Does it make the potatoes look like rice??
If you don't care about that,
What is your favorite new TV show?
I just started watching Fringe on hulu.com and I LOVE it!
Do you tie your shoes (if your wearing sneakers) or just leave them untied or just slip them on?
Do you have cool shoelaces? Will you show me?
 So, each state has a number of "electoral votes" and in November people vote for which candidate will get those votes in their state? And then what? Who wins - the person who gets more electoral votes in all USA or the one who wins in more states?
[edit 2] Thank you, alpacacock! Now I get it!
I'm looking for a smallish, cordless, optical mouse. Any suggestions? Being able to get it at a regular brick-and-mortar store is a plus. I'll order things online if I know what I'm getting, but since I can't actually test-drive the mouse from an online store...
My question is this: Why is it that every time it comes up, I have to relearn it? As in, I completely forget how to do it every year. Despite the fact that I've never had trouble with it.
(For what it's worth, it's the Pearson's Square method for balancing horse feed rations.)
Would you be overwhelmed/embarassed to have a poster-size portrait of yourself and your significant other?
I'm doing this project about Voudon (Voodoo) for my Myth, Magic and Shamanism class. It's pretty sweet. My focus of the project is how Voudon is romanticized/degraded in popular culture.
However, whenever I try to Google "Voodoo in movies" or "Movies with Voodoo" I get results for (I guess) a porn star named Voodoo. >.<
Off the top of your head, do you know movies that have a voodoo context?
I know of: The Serpent and the Rainbow, The Skeleton Key, Predator 2 (Ya, really), uh...some other really lame B movies...
I'm looking for more popular, mainstream movies, though, like The Skeleton Key.
Thank you so much!
I checked out Canada's salaries for that work and the US's. While I could justify 6 years of school for the US salary..the Canadian one seems kinda iffy. Its weird. Canadian salaries seem low compared to US salaries. Maybe its just the field. Idk.

2. How was waking up this morning?
Did you say something like, "Oh, that's impossible!"? EVEN THOUGH YOU KNEW IT WASN'T!?
Does this concern you?
Why would you not test your software for load for such a crucial process? :(
Will we see Florida all over again?!
Do you feel bad about eating one type of meat and not another? Like guilt for eating baby cow but not adult cow? Or baby lamb but not salmon? How about pork but not horse or chicken but not dog? Tuna but not cat?
Whats the difference? Why is one ok but not the other, just the gross factor?
Details please :)
What was your favorite book of his?
answers relating to paying for school or bills are discouraged.
Now that the US election is over with, what are we going to post about repeatedly?
I have decided to wash my smelling-of-dog jacket due to an unexpected day off work. Now, is it a good idea to put the coat, zipped up, in the washing machine cycle? I do remember reading something, somewhere which said the teeth of the zip could be damaged during a washing cycle.
What would be good countries for pissed off conservatives to flee to? Like how liberals were all I'M MOVING TO CANADA in 2004. Someone on my friend's list now plans to move to England, but that seems kind of questionable, since Europe is more liberal than the US.
so my best friend is sending me mail complaining how i haven't called her and im being a shitty friend. i saw her a day ago.. i just got outta the hospital i was there for a week and she only visited me once for 20 minutes then complained about she was to creeped out of the hospital to be there there and left, then yelled at me for not calling her right when i got out. i told her i was going through a lot right now and she wants more than i can give, but she doesn't seem to get it. i have been a bit distant from my friends and everyone lately but its because im trying to focus on myself to get better and just understand myself more.
have you ever had someone want to much that you couldnt give them? what was the situation?
am i being a bad friend? :/
What should I do?
I should only go for 'casual' working positions as oppossed to 'part time' because there just wouldn't be enough time for me to do assignments etc/learn efficiently and work constantly +I would never ever have any break time to just chill out?
And if I AM right, and casual is the way to go, I can assume that I am going to be fairly poor and eating bread and lettuce for dinner?
are there any american series on during prime time that feature gay/lesbian relationships?
Not necessarily as a main focus, but just have a lesbian/gay character or something like that?
what is it?
Would you be insulted if your partner wanted doggie all the time?
It's just 27 illustrations for a children's book and I have at least 3 full days in the next week to work on it....
Do you get panicky about stuff like that?

Will you come visit me at work today? I work at Barnes & Noble!
What do I do now? I don't have a GP, can I just walk into a clinic or something and say "My hands hurt, halp?" I've been to one, and while it was awesome for getting congestion-busting drugs, they don't seem like they'd be quite so spiffy at the wrist problem diagnostics. But maybe I underestimate them?
Also - has anyone had to do the CTS test before, where they send shocks up and down your arm to test how closed off the nerves are? My old chorus teacher had it done and then described it in detail, emphasizing how much it hurt like a sonofabitch to a group of very impressionable 13 year-olds, and 12 years later I am still scared as fuck of that test. Does it really hurt that bad? :(
What kind of parrot is it?
I got my budgie about eight months ago, and he's just now starting to say "hello" and "pretty bird". It's garbled, but it sounds like he's almost figured out how to say it clearly.
if so, please post a picture so that we can guess who you dressed up as. also, tell us what people mistook you for.
i'll post my picture after i get out of class.
Do you like karate/kung-fu movies? What are your favorites?
On friday, I'm seeing my favourite singer live for the first time in the 9-year history of my fandom. I'm really excited, and I'm sitting in the front row. I'm travelling 6-8 hours to get there.
HOWEVER, today I woke up with a terrible cold, hacking cough, sore throat, and awful phlegmy grossness.
WHAT CAN I DO TO GET BETTER BY FRIDAY? I'm doing lots of facial steams(the whole holding my head over a bucket of boiling water with a towel thing) and eating chicken soup, but what else? Any pills or syrups that could help? ANYTHING!
Also: Missing the concert is NOT an option.
In other non-election news, I am ordering Chinese take-out! What would you like me to get you? :)
Edit: I live in the Kansas City metro.
EDIT: I just tried and could only fit 51.
How many fun size Twix do you think you could eat in a day?
but the idea of this huge ass party in DC sounds pretty appealing and I can't imagine seeing something as historical occurring again in my lifetime. The idea of calling up friends who are going to school all over the country and meeting up with them in DC also sounds like a lot of fun.
So what say you TQC, would you find a way to get to DC on Jan 20th so that you could see Obama become the 44th President?
What do you think of having huge party in DC?
Do you think that anything crazy or scary would happen?
what would make you party harder? Obama's victory or realization over the fact that the reign of King Bush is almost over?
how do you feel about the fact that at this very moment President-Elect Obama is getting briefed on top secret information regarding the military, economy, cia, etc.???

If not, do you prefer canned or frozen vegetables, and why? (fresh is not an option!) If it depends on the vegetable, please describe!
Does this really sadden anyone else?
Don't know who he is? well Wiki it, but I LOVE Rahm Emanuel and I am so happy he's going to be the Chief of Staff. I give him credit for all of the dem wins 2 years ago (he personally hand picked a bunch of those congressmen/women) and I particularly like this story about him
Friends and enemies agree that the key to Emanuel's success is his legendary intensity. There's the story about the time he sent a rotting fish to a pollster who had angered him. There's the story about how his right middle finger was blown off by a Syrian tank when he was in the Israeli army. And there's the story of how, the night after Clinton was elected, Emanuel was so angry at the president's enemies that he stood up at a celebratory dinner with colleagues from the campaign, grabbed a steak knife and began rattling off a list of betrayers, shouting "Dead! . . . Dead! . . . Dead!" and plunging the knife into the table after every name. "When he was done, the table looked like a lunar landscape," one campaign veteran recalls. "It was like something out of The Godfather. But that's Rahm for you."
So what do you think of Emanuel?
EDIT HE TOOK THE JOB!!
and wtf ppl, how do you all not know who he is?? the congress is democratic BECAUSE of him!! "Emanuel was named the Chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2005. Prior to his work for Clinton, Emanuel had been an employee of the Committee, which principally serves to recruit candidates for the House and to raise funds to assist both new candidates and incumbents from the Democratic party in an effort to gain Democratic representation in the House."
Are any of you familiar with the Tomie series?
Can you give details about the best party youve ever attended?
Also Obama, Japan celebrates presidential victory
The day of said wedding, she calls and says she won't come because her boyfriend is on probation and there will be some minor drug use at said festivities. When the point is made that just because her SO cannot come does not mean she can't she claims "I don't like taking public transportation alone."
When that is exactly what you have to do to go see her ALL THE TIME.
What would you do?
the only drugs going on was some minor weed smoking by some of the guests, which my friend still does, just not around her boyfriend.
Should I be submitting job applications now, or should I wait a few more months?
Last night my sister told me she was going to buy me a car from her friend for really cheap (even though she can't afford to make her own car payments on time) , and I told her that I didn't want it because I CAN'T afford to pay insurance and for gas on top of all the other stuff I need to pay for, and I don't need it because I walk to work and can walk to the store or take the bus and don't need to drive 40 miles to go to my fav restaurant (her example of why I should want a car).
Then she told me to SET ASIDE the financial factor and asked if I wanted it (I don't want a car anyway, to be honest) and I said that ignoring the most important aspect when making a decision hasn't played out well for me in the past and she first asked "Like when?" (I didn't say moving in with her which first popped up in my mind) and then said that sometimes I just need to "let go and live life." She also kept slapping my arm the whole time.
This morning she told me that I was mean and rude last night and that she "doesn't like me and doesn't have to."
Am I terrible for not wanting her to buy me a car that neither of us can afford and that I have no need or desire for anyway?
I thought I was being realistic and responsible (I mean having a car would be fun, but it's last on my list of priorities right now) but with her reaction I am thinking that maybe I am missing something.
what's going on? am I dying?
I'm pretty much open to anything.
TQC, why are many attorneys and their legal documents so freakin' strange?
Have you ever been involved in a lawsuit or other legal proceeding, etc.? Do you have strange lawyer/legal related stories/anecdotes you want to share? Or any good attorney jokes?
...They went away on their own just now, after I spent 10 minutes gathering up my courage. I was about to go up to them and go "DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS SIGN SAYS?" too. Next time I'll be more decisive!

What has been the saddest death of 2008?
Edit: Yes, this is post 3 about his death. My apologies about that—the addition of the second question was meant to make it less. . . annoying, I guess. Sorry!
What's your favourite "traditional" holiday dessert? We're doing an early Christmas dinner this weekend because my sister's moving across the country soon, and I've been told to bring dessert. She's making a turkey (something we've never had for Christmas before), so I thought I could try something that matched like pumpkin pie. We've never had that either, so I don't know if we'll like it, but I'm not sure what else to try. I need enough for 13 people, so I thought I could bring a few things. Oh might northern hemisphere TQCers, what do you suggest? Recipes would be awesome.
(no not over the election)
how can I make myself feel better? apparently it is illegal to shoot people so I need a good alternative.
I'm going after work to pick it up from the processing center. I'm really curious...
What's in the package?!?!?
I make icons and clean the house.
I've closed the poll because I stayed and then cycled home.
So new question. Shall I have fish or omelette for my dinner?
He is all of a sudden enjoying the scrunchy noises of the litter the way kitties do, and scrabbling around and wallowing in there. Obviously shooing him out isn't an option. Any ideas?
In your opinion, what makes a girl, a woman?
Other than age, of course.
And maturity is a broad term-specify further.
A rich man approaches you and is says that he has an unusual sense of humor and he'd like to make you an offer. Whenever you die, whatever day in whatever year that is, he would like to see you buried in a furry costume. The costume will be of a sexy cow with enormous obscene udders. You'd be laid in the casket and all in attendance of your funeral will probably assume the worst, and you'll be buried in that outfit. You'll probably outlive him, so if you agree to put this clause in your will, his estate will make sure that his wishes are enforced and secretly recorded. As incentive for such a thing, he'll pay you $15,000 now and he'll pay for all your funeral/casket costs, so your family won't have to. He'll have his best lawyers write up the contract and it'll be ironclad and unable to be broken once you sign. Do you sign it?
You manage to talk some sense into him and he's willing to give you a second deal, if you didn't like the first. For $5,000 up front now, you'll be buried, inexplicably, in a Darth Vader costume. All other aspects of the deal remain the same, just that the money given and the costume worn are different. Would you rather do this deal?
What kind of camera do you have? Pros/cons?
When was the last time you brushed your teeth? Brushed your hair? Washed your face? Showered?
how much does it cost to fill your tank? what kind of car do you drive?
The internet brings up all sorts of random pay sites but I don't know if they're legit. Can't find anything "official" on how to go.
I was thinking maybe the Discovery Channel commercial, but I'm not sure it qualifies as a campaign. Does anyone know if it does?
And do agree with that correspondent? If not, why?
What sort of lovin' would you expect to get if you just won the presidency?
If not, what do you think this fantasy says about the person having it?
my friend sat in my car yesterday and at the exact moment she opened her legs to sit, I was hit with a rotten fish smell. she wasn't even on her period.
HOW DO I TELL HER TQC? just say "wash that shit?"
If you don't give a crap: How many drinks get you "drunk" ?
If you STILL don't give a crap, have a good day :)
What were your "favorite moments" of the Bush presidency?
What are your(or your friends and family's) weirdest eating habits, TQC?
My answers: I peel things. I feel like everything should be eaten one part at a time, so I peel or take apart almost everything. Like, if I'm eating chicken nuggets, I peel off the breading and eat it first, or with hot dogs I'll peel off the casing and eat that first, followed by the bun. I take sandwiches apart too.
My friend eats like a lion tearing apart a gazelle. She once told me she feels chewing impedes her intake time.
who did i dress up as for halloween? see here for evidence: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3157/3005618455_55cde70f60.jpg?v=0
have you ever just woken up one day, and decided that you didn't like someone anymore? what's more, is that you can't pinpoint why you don't like them? why does that happen? it blows my mind.
The UDSR. Probably most of our states are mini republics anyway assuming their constitution is similar to the federal constitution.
Is this the most retarded thing PETA has ever done, if true?
2. What does vagina/female crotch smell like, anyway? I don't think I've met anyone with a stinky crotch. But maybe I have.
How long have you gone dating somebody before the first big fight?

Should I wait a bit before I try to mend things? I'm CONFUSED D: I just feel like I've made a huge mistake!
EDIT: I talked to him about how I was freaking out and he said he wasn't going to let me go back on my decision so soon. So I guess that answers my question.
Uhhhh yeah so basically my question is can you tell me how awesome Melbourne is and where I should look to live if I decide to go?! Any information is great!
Other TQC'ers, where have you done or where do you want to do a working holiday?
If you only watch certain shows within 24 hours, which ones are they?
Are there any other cheap alternatives for spending a couple nights in DC during that crazy time?
