What is the most disgusting thing you have ever eaten?

For me I would say cum, but the nasty ass catfish an ex bf made was much worse.
His was the worst cum I have tasted too.
It was all chunky and lumpy.
The catfish though had grey rubbery shit on the bottom, and the sauce was hideous.

My boyfriend went home to his parent's this weekend, and I just walked into the bathroom to brush my teeth -- and discovered he took the only tube of toothpaste!!! ARGH!

Why the hell would he take the toothpaste, TQC?! He's going to his parents house! He's not camping or staying in a hotel! Why wouldn't his parents have toothpaste? Ergh, and I just drank a glass of milk and my mouth tastes like something just died in it!

If you were going to visit your parents, would you pack toothpaste?

Weird cat thing

Does anyone know why cats like hairties and milk rings?  They seem to be attracted to these circular things specifically. I've googled it and I can't seem to find out why.

One of my female friends (who has a kind of crush on me, and whom I also sort-of fancy because she's awesome) just admitted to me that she had a sexy dream about the two us. It sounded pretty hot (naked picnic blanket "snuggles").

Has someone who is not-your-SO ever had a sexy dream about you and told you about it? How did that make you FEEL, TQC?

Inspired by the art question a few questions down.

What makes abstract art good? I mean, what determines whether it is amazing or whether it is crap? Because it seems to me like anyone could do it. What makes it so complex that not just anyone could do it?

I ask because I went to an art market yesterday and most of the art was abstract. I've never really understood abstract art because to me it seems like just shapes and colors put randomly together. Can someone explain it to me?

so, i've got these nipple rings. and they look like this:

they make me bleed and hurt. usually i just wear the curved barbells and they are fine, but i really like the way these ones look!

should i:
continue to wear them and hope that i can break them in or grow accustomed to them?
be sensible and consider them a lost cause?

and since i will inevitably have people telling me that nipple rings are ew tacky and awful, i'll just ask that, too.

do you think nipple rings are tacky and awful?

I had sleep paralysis two nights ago. It was bad, this is one of the few times in which I couldn't be in control while on it.

Do you ever have sleep paralysis? Can you share some of your experiences?

edit: The one I had last night I obviously, couldn't move, but I could breath faster and make some noises in hopes that my sister would wake up and then come and wake me up because something was wrong. While in it, I did see my sister get up, very silently and stand next to me and do nothing, just stand there and watch me struggling for air... of course that was just part of the "dream" part of the paralysis. It was very frightening.

HSA questions

I'm hip-deep in studies by various companies about HSA's--do any of you have an HSA that you wouldn't mind talking about? You can send me a private message if you want. My curiosity about what normal people actually think about HSAs is killing me (and I don't think that's considered preventative care...)

I'm curious about things like how long you've had the HSA, did your employer offer any type of education about consumer-driven health plans prior to putting the HSA in place, did you have an alternative, regular plan ( a non-high deductible plan) that you could take instead? Also, how big is your company, how old are you, do you like using the HSA, etc? What about education about the HSA?

How many of you have had any education about being a good consumer of your healthcare coverage? Would you be interested and, if so, are there any specific questions you'd like to have answered?

Ursula--er, I mean, my old boss, tried to tell one of our VP's that he could use the money in his HSA to fill his gas tank, without penalties. I think we're going to have to put her down, literally. I think it would be best for the mental health of all involved.

And, since I'm an idiot and deleted Cathh's comment without responding, I hope you will send me another, so I can help you! The best way to decide if an HSA is a good idea is to sit down with your medical bills for the last couple of years and see how much you spent. You'll be responsible for more costs with an HSA, but if you don't use your insurance frequently, it may be worth it to save some costs on premiums. You don't lose the deposited funds if you don't keep the high deductible plan, but there are some odd rules about how much can remain in the account if you leave the high deductible plan.

1. I was all set to buy my SO the new Bill Maher Religulous dvd for Christmas, only to be disappointed to find it's not been released yet, and doesn't look like it'll be released until around March or so. What was the last thing you wanted to buy, but couldn't or didn't?

2. Are you planning on buying a PostSecret book this season to help Frank keep paid advertising off the blog?

3. Will you share a happy holiday memory with me?

4. Do you have any special holiday traditions (beyond, like, getting a tree and giving presents and whatnot)? (My family always gets a potted live tree, which when my brothers and I were younger was the most embarassing event of the year, since it involved going to a tree farm somewhere in the boonies and finding a tree that would have huge bare spots and would be all slanted and you know, be like a real not-cut-and-perfect tree, and then my dad would proceed to try to haggle the farm people down on whatever ugly tree we had picked out, because he didn't want to pay much for it, and the people would always look at us like lolwut -- we were always mortified for some reason. FUN. :P)

My sister bought my niece the Twilight series for Christmas. Normally I would be mad that she bought them for her just because it's a shitty series, but I'm more upset that my niece is 10 years old. And she's not one of those 10 year olds that already know "everything" and act like they're 25. She's the most naive little girl you'll ever meet. My sister hasn't read the books, but because there is a movie and because the age group is listed as 9-12 she thinks it's alright.

But TQC, maybe I'm being a prude and they're a fine gift.

Please guide me:

1. If you are studying in a public place with lots of people around and you suddenly need to use the restroom badly, do you pack up all your things, leave your table, and go to the bathroom? Or do you leave your things where they are and just go, trusting no one to take your stuff? This is if you are studying alone and you have a laptop, etc with you.

(I always suck it up and go with the first option, even though I hate losing my study spot. I know people who do the second one though and it always boggles my mind. Then again, I also lock my car door, my front door, etc, compulsively. so idk).

2. Which of these computer games should I download?

a) Top Chef
b) Family Restaurant
c) Hells Kitchen
d) None/Other (suggest one, but keep in mind I am horribly bad at shooter games, RPGs, etc).

So my university recently had some fire drills, and during the subsequent inspection of the dorms they found 23 covered smoke detectors, most of them in one quad. (As a result, the school could have to pay up to $23,000 in fines and those responsible could, in theory, spend a year in jail.)

There is an article about this in the school newspaper. One girl claims that "she and her suitemates were written up for covering their smoke detector this October when they were throwing a birthday party for a friend. She explained that they covered it because they didn't want the birthday candles on the cake to set the alarm off."

Do you think they were really that concerned about the birthday candles?

Some other guy, who covered his smoke detector so that he could smoke and burn incense, "reasoned that 'if there's a real fire, the bag [covering the smoke detector] would actually probably melt and the sprinklers will go off first.'"

My question is for anyone here who has knowledge of South Pacific politics, particularly as they relate to Australia, the Solomon Islands, and China/Taiwan.

The Solomon Islands are a small country just north of Australia. In 1999, a civil war started; in 2003, the Australians intervened, in what was called "Operation Helpem Fren" or "RAMSI: Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands," and they have been rebuilding that country ever since. In 2006, citizens rioted after a candidate won an election, because the citizens believed that he was a tool for Taiwan. "China and Taiwan have long battled for diplomatic recognition from South Pacific nations."

What I want to know, most specifically, is this:

why do the Solomon Islands matter so much to Australia that they would spend hundreds of millions of dollars to help it economically and stabilize its government? Why do Taiwan/China court it?

I just sighed to my roommate "I don't want to go to work tomorrow," and her response was "Not to sound like I am criticizing or judging you in any way, but do you ever want to go to work?"

Given the alternative of sleeping in and having free time to go Christmas shopping or watch movies in bed? Of course I don't. But my job isn't terrible or anything, I just don't want the weekend to be over.

So, employed people of TQC, how much do you usually dread or look forward to going to work? Are you just jumping for joy at the prospect, do you view it as a necessary evil that puts food on your table and beats unemployment, or do you hate it with a fiery burning passion? Or somewhere in between? Or a mixture of all things? Do tell...

another so question

if you have been in a relationship for a while, or if you can think of a past relationships, what are some things that your SO used to do, but they dont do anymore?

mine does these things-

-isnt so mushy and romantical anymore
-is desensitized to me crying
-sex not as often
-doesnt show appreciation much anymore(although i know he does)-do you think this one is a problem? what to do to get him to change it?
-does not call as much

ive not been in a long relationship before and am not used to getting past the "honeymoon" phase. its kind of sad for me.

EDIT- i really do feel like i love this guy and want to have it get better, so since a lot of you are saying hes just a plain ole douchebag, how can i seriously bring it to his attention? i have talked to him about it a lot the past few days, but its only been a few days so how can i tell if he is changing or realizing himself? i have an idea of having him read this, but he might be pissed off thinking i was just trying to complain, which i dont think i would blame him for because i wouldnt be happy about it either. or otherwise, what could i do thats not just talking to make him understand?
