I am watching a Chinese Ghost story...

If you could do a ghost investigation of any supposedly haunted place, which one would you choose and why?

What's your favorite real ghost story? (For example; Lincoln's ghost has been said to haunt the White House. Andrew Jackson supposedly haunts the house as well. And can be heard swearing up a storm.)


And if you don't care for that one;

What is your favorite punk rock song? (old school, middle school or new school. It doesn't matter.)

My dad wants me to look for a new laptop.
I currently use a Sony VAIO that I've had for about 4 or 5 years and although it looks like its been eaten up, chewed, and spit out, and it's a tad bit slow, it has been pretty great to me.
The thing is, when we first got one, we had to return it twice until we found one that was not faulty. We also bought my brother one a few months ago, and he has not complained yet.

- Do you have any non-Sony recommendations? I may stick with VAIO, but I want to know my options and get opinions from others.
- For those of you with a Sony VAIO, how long have you had it, and has it been working well? Any price is alright, but the cheaper the better I suppose.

I also plan on asking for a small digital camera for Christmas. I've never had one so I'm not sure what exactly to look for in one.
- What camera (obviously that takes good quality pictures) do you recommend? Again any price range, but if you could find one that isn't too pricey (perhaps no more than $500), that would be great as well.

- For those of you who live in a box or just don't care, how was your Thanksgiving? When did it end for you, or does the party not stop 'til 6 in the morning?

Have you ever heard of a "cookie exchange"?

My MIL is hosting one and there will be 8 people attending, so I need to make 7 Dozen cookies.
You give 1 dozen of your cookies to each person. I guess that means I'll be getting 7 dozen cookies back.

HALP!
Cookies? What will I do with 84 cookies??????

I'm in need of a new mp3 player. I currently have a Cowon iAudio X5L, but the lithium-ion battery has died completely and isn't rechargeable anymore. I could just replace the battery, but I decided to check out if there's anything better out there. I looked up reviews online and stuff, but I'm still not sure what else is considered a good mp3 player when comparing audio quality. And iPods are not an option, they're terrible.


So, tqc, what mp3 player should I get?
What mp3 player do you have and how do you like it?

In Florida, an atheist created a case against the Easter & Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews and observances of their holy days. The argument was it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized day. The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring, Case dismissed.

The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, 'Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter, etc. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur, Rosh Hashanah, and Hanukkah. Yet my client and all other atheists have no such holiday.

The judge leaned forward in his chair saying , But you do. Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant.

The lawyer said, 'Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists.'

The judge said, 'The calendar shows April 1st is 'April Fools Day. 'Psalm 14:1 states: 'The fool says in his heart, there is no God.' Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool.

Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned.

I'm at my parents house. They are both RAGING REPUBLICANS. Whenever Obama is on t.v my Mom starts saying all these terribly cruel things. And this goes on and on and on. My parents spend 48% of their day bitching about Obama. I'm fine with their opinions, but it gets OLD when you are sitting in it for days on end. So finally this morning I said *You know Mom, for a woman who wakes up every morning and reads the Bible you are awfully full of hate* Well that sent her knickers in a knot!!! She starting screaming and having a fit, trying to corner me. Saying, *Name one good thing about Obama!!!?* Anyway...my questions are...

1. When was the last time you stood up to your parents? What did you say and what was it about?

2. Do you have parents that have extreme views on anything? If so, what are they? and do you agree?

I have a dog situation:

Casey (black lab, 7 years) and Randy (German Shepherd, rescued 2 years ago, 4 years old) have a bit of a rivalry. They're friends, but not too good of friends. Always have to be first to the ball, jealous if you pet one and not the other, and so on.

This morning I went to feed them, and there was an inch of pee in Casey's bowl, too much to be an accident.

What do you think -- did Casey do this or did Randy? WHY??

They both usually pee in the grassy area of the lawn.

politics

I know of, and have heard of people that marry or have SOs with the complete opposite opinions on political issues(like abortion, healthcare, gay rights, etc) . I don't understand how it is possible. For me, if the other person has opposite views on important things like that, i couldn't be with them, because the opposite political views are something I am against.

Could you date or marry someone with opposite political views?

For a laugh I set up a hot female ID on a dating site.

I have come to the conclusion that men are total unoriginal. I get hundreds of messages with the subject "Hi". They then say I am hot and ask for an MSN straight away. Men are overly sexual straight off.

I have to talk to someone soon about something that's definitely going to make me sad/nervous/angry. However, it is really important that I don't cry in front of this person (because the discussion will just shut down and we'll get nowhere). Buuuut, I cry really easily when sad or nervous or angry, let along a combination of the three. I've got a few techniques (from the internets) that I'm going to try out.

Who is the most difficult person in your family to buy gifts for?

My mom is pretty difficult because she'll never tell you what she wants. She'll only say "You don't have to get me anything."

And my brother is difficult because he's 19, but cognitively four, and it's hard to buy something that's age appropriate, but still not too difficult for him.

Becoming what you are against

I have this quote in a book in my language, and I'm trying to find out what it is in English. But I can't 'cause it seems my translation doesn't fit.
I it, loosely, 'You become what you oppose' or 'what you are against', and is signed as something like 'the first principle of self-determination'. How does it exactly sound in English. I've been googling it, but have not gotten any result.

TQC~

I just listened to the following phone conversation between my roommate and his GF (he was on the phone in my front yard right outside my window saying this in a very loud voice)
"All I've ever asked for is to touch your skin, for you to wear a thong, to wear heels, not to cut your hair and for you not to wear purple or black because it's not feminine. I love your skin and I love your feet, they're sexy."


It made me want to hurl.

A few days ago his gf was over and she showed me the mani/pedi he got her. I said "aww, well that's nice." to which she said "Yeah, I wanted my hair cut too but he told me I wasn't allowed to and that I have to grow it long." to which my reaction was to suddenly start channeling my mother and say "WHAT? What the hell? You do your hair however the hell you want to do your hair! It's YOUR hair not HIS hair. Tell him he can grow his own hair long if he wants long hair so badly!" This woman is in her mid to late thirties and I'm in my mid twenties, she started to look at me as if I was guiding her. It was weird and it made me sad to think that this was how she was choosing to live her life.


So I ask you TQC~ What's the weirdest, most backwards "rule" or convo. you've heard about between a man and a woman lately (relationship wise)


Ps. He came back inside so I walked passed him in my purple shirt with my short hair and my ugly chipped toenail polish and glared at him. What a prick.

TQC, solve a family debate.

TQC, please decide the winner of this Holiday themed family debate. My mom just came in my room and said "Hey, ask your question friends this..."

Our Church and a local college are participating in a Midnight Run. From the website: Midnight Run is a volunteer organization dedicated to finding common ground between the housed and the homeless. You can read more at MidnightRun.org if you're interested.

Anyway, my mom wants to make cards to stick in the lunch bags that they will be handing out. She thinks it's insensitive to have cards that say "Merry Christmas!!" and that something along the lines of "Thinking of you this Holiday/Christmas season" would be more appropriate. Her reasoning is that odds are Christmas isn't as wonderful for people with no homes and little to no family or possessions. My dad cannot even grasp her line of thinking. He says "A card is a card." Is my dad being willfully ignorant or is my mom being over sensitive?

TQC, when you feel like you're gonna vom, do you prefer to lay down and take deep breaths in hopes you end up NOT puking, or do you prefer to just make yourself puke because you know you'll feel better afterward?

This is so ridiculous.

Speaking of hair...

Okay guys. I am a natural light brunette and I generally dye my hair the darkest brown I possibly can before black, but currently I am living in a country where that is natural hair color of almost everyone, so they don't sell a dye in the color I want.

My boyfriend wants me to dye my hair black, and I would, except for the last time I did I was a sophomore in high school and when I tried to get it out I bleached it. It didn't work and I walked around with bleached roots and black hair and looked like a skunk until I could drop the 200 bucks to fix it professionally.

So. Is it possible to remove black hair dye? Does it fade eventually? Is this a stupid idea?


Also, is it possible to mix dye colors? Could I FEASIBLY mix a brown dye with a black dye to make really, really dark brown?

if everything reminds you of someone that you dont want to be reminded of, what do you do?

If you could choose to be a little retarded, like, you know, in the fun way, would you?

What famouse person deserves to be burned alive? I say modanna for adopting an african boy for *Publicity.

In a pickle..

What is a good alternative title for an exboyfriend that you are on good terms with?

Ones I've thought of already:
- friend (not good since it's a bit of a downgrade)
- exboyfriend (suggests something really bad happened, seems negative)
- lover (seems too sexual)
- just their name (is too ambiguous)

am i the only girl who sees marriage as a death sentence?

there is always that stereotype that all girls are out to get married, and i sometimes feel like i'm the only one of my friends who wouldn't get married under any circumstances in the near future.

Pirating movies is illegal. Uploading movies to the internet is illegal.

This much I know.

If someone uploads a video to a website that allows for embedding, like any youtube video you might see on your friendslist, and you embed it...is that illegal?

Ex-bf jewelry & poutine

1. A few years ago, my then-bf gave me a cute Tiffany & Co. bracelet which he had engraved with "J HEARTS S". I stopped wearing it after we broke up, but I was cleaning recently and came across it and I kind of want to start wearing it again -- not because I care about the ex (I don't) but because I still like the bracelet. Do you think my boyfriend will mind? Or do you think he'll be insulted that I even considered it? For what it's worth, my current boyfriend's name also starts with a J.

2. Do you like poutine?

EDIT FOR PIC:

Dudes...I've asked so many people for help on this shit, but nobody knows anything. I called up microsoft, the guys over at toshiba, and I posted on a shitton of forums. Still, nothing.

Vista (which fucking sucks so don't ever get it) keeps freezing randomly. Then the piece of shit says, NOT RESPONDING, so I have to shut the bitch down.

It gets especially bad when I'm on youtube. I can't watch ONE video without Firefox, IE or Opera crashing on me. I tried disabling java, reinstalling flash, reinstalling my browsers...nothing is helping.

Are any of you guys experiencing this type of crap with Vista? Are there any solutions to this shit? Is the world coming to an end?

Dear Night Crew,

Other than browsing the internets, what are you doing?

Would you like to tell me something interesting?

Would you like to help me finish these choc-covered oreo balls?

Love Always,

Have you ever taken digital photographs to somewhere like Office Max/Kinko's to be printed on nice paper? Where did you go? Did they do a nice job?

For the holidays I'm giving my family framed photographs I took when I lived in Italy, since they all helped me to get there. Usually I print my own work but my life is way too crazy this year, and I've never let any other place do it.

ever written a love letter? how did you start it?

Ever written one to someone who didnt know you liked them? how did or would you start that one?

Ever had one written to you? how did you react?

Do you loose respect(or whatever) for a guy friend if they said 'i love you'?
