Please help me, oh great TQC! I'm flying soon, and was wondering if semi-solid deodorant had to be put into the quart size ziplock bag if I want to put it in my carry on, or if I could leave it separate. I've tried calling Southwest to ask, but I've been put on hold and never helped :(

Add: I'd bag it anyway, but I'm in a dorm and don't have easy access to any and would prefer to not have to buy a whole box just for some deodorant.

I'm switching channels. Should I keep watching To Die For? In years (more likely to be a decade), I haven't had a chance to see it.

What movie have you been looking forward to watch for years, but you don't have a chance to?

tv land

Now that the American fall television season is over, is it me or was this season's shows bad? Bad writing. Bad acting. Bad directing. Even the returning shows such as Heroes and Ugly Betty were worse than usual.

What do you think?

Were there any shows that you thought were brilliant?

(Okay, I admit, Fringe later on became awesome. But it started off bad.)

For our non-American TQC brothers and sisters, what is currently your favorite homegrown show of your country? What is it about?

(Why, yes, I am looking for new shows to watch.)

WARNING: Spoilers for the fall season of American television. Enter at your own risk.

OK, I know this is a long shot, but...

Is anyone here into punk rock that lives in the Charlotte, NC, area? I'll be visiting family down there and I'd like to go to a show if possible to break up the monotony.

Any help would be much appreciated.

1. On a scale of 1 to 10, how much stuff* would you say you have?

2. How do you feel about that? Have you ever felt like you had too much stuff? Did you do anything to simplify your life? Do the things you own end up owning you?


tl;dr: Lately I feel like I have too much stuff. I'm terrified of becoming the crazy hoarder neighbors that lived down the street when I was a kid. Like, I have these old college textbooks that I can't resell to the bookstore, or sell online, or even give away on Craigslist, but I would feel bad throwing them away because it's books. That sort of thing. (ETA: I'll try the library and goodwill tomorrow. Thanks guys!)

women...

I just had a conversation and it went a little something like this (edited for time):

Her: I'm sick and keep passing out. Oh, and I can't talk to you anymore. I can't be second best to HER.

Me: I don't rank women, but they seem to love to rank themselves in regards to me. This is dramalicious. I don't see why you don't want to talk to me anymore, but I respect your decision.

Her: Whatever, I'm never talking to you again and that's the choice that YOU made.

Me: Huh? But you just said that you were never speaking to me... you didn't ask my opinion on the matter. How is this my choice?

Her: Whatever, maybe next time you want to talk to me, I'll have better people to talk to.

Me: Well, that's immature.

Her: That's what you do.

Me: No it's not. I'm WORKING. On, like, my JOB stuff.

Her: I hate you.

Me: I hope you feel better tomorrow.

Her: I love you.

So my question is this: What should I get her for Christmas?

And, what did she want me to say to her? Ladies, what sort of answer or reaction would a woman want? What did I miss?

Also, when was the last time you did something you didn't want to do, but did because you were expected to?

And, third, what was the biggest secret you ever kept that eventually got revealed and is no longer a secret?

compulsive nail-biter

I've been biting my nails for as long as I can remember. The past week I've been obsessing over not biting them because I'm out of school and have nothing else to do. Anyway, several of my nails are looking relatively normal, but since I've never had long or even average length nails, the length is killing me. I spend all of my time staring at them, cleaning under them, and, for the past few days, bending them back and forth. This is causing them to break, though. Please give me your opinions.
Should I:

-try to ignore them but keep fidgeting without realizing it and keep growing them, or
-clip them off, even though they'll be short, so that I quit picking at them and biting them?


I know this is really silly, but I do want some advice.

My wife and I may be going on a road trip. She has been talking about getting a GPS for the car. I suggested that since we use Microsoft Streets and Trips on our laptop for our maps and such, that we just buy the new version of that which comes with a USB GPS locater and automatically works with Streets and Trips. I don't particularly feel the need to put a GPS in my car, since 99% of the time we're just driving around to the same friggin places. Plus, the one on the laptop would be significantly cheaper (from what I can tell).

My question is: Do you know anything about GPS gadget dealies and who is right? Me for wanting the laptop one or my wife for wanting the car one? Pros and cons of both?

Cookbook stuff

Some of you may have noticed that I'm writing a cookbook, and by some of you I mean: "one or two of you"...anyway. You've all been a real help with picking the best picture to use, thats been great.

ANYWAY- I need more help. I need food testers, people to make my recipes and give opinions, critiques etc..even if its just to say: "that was damn good!". More than anything I need to make sure my directions make sense, I know the food is damn good.

I also need people who are musicians and/or love music and/or just KNOW music who would be interested in writing little blurbs for the book. Its a food & music cookbook and with every recipe will come a little ditty on music of some sort.

Is anyone here interested helping me? Let me know and I can give you details.

Thanks!

I think the project manager I was talking to asked me a question as to what would be the best way to clarify an issues and I just answered, "Yes, that would be great." and then hung up on him.

Which of these places you don't want to visit would you rather visit?

I've got a six-week sabbatical from work coming up next spring, and I'm going to spend much of it traveling. My wife has less time off available than I do, so she's probably joining me for two weeks after I schlep around by myself for 2 or 3 weeks.

Our destination together will likely be Turkey. So before Turkey, I want to go somewhere that meets these two criteria:

A) Adjacent to Turkey, or a short flight away; and
B) My wife doesn't want to go there.

Criterion B basically rules out Greece, and tips the balance in favor of Eastern Europe/the post-Soviet world. So I'm considering these two itineraries. Which do you prefer? Third options welcome in comments, but remember criteria A and B.

1) If you're a speed reader and looking at something with somebody on the Internet, do you ever get irritated about the fact that they're three paragraphs behind you? Yes. It drives me up the wall. I want to go on and scroll down, but I can't.

2) Anyone remember the Baby-Sitters Clubs books? Who was your favorite sitter? Least favorite? Yes. It's a tie between Dawn and Stacey. Least favorite is a tie between Jessi and Mallory. I got angry at Mallory for refusing to play volleyball in gym because of the boys. Stupid eleven year old should have realized that that's what the boys do in volleyball.

3) Girls, you hated playing volleyball with the guys in high school gym, right? They'd never let us play and yell at us if we did something wrong. In my gym class, the boys would always dive in front of you to get the ball and never let you have it.

Name that TV show

Ok this post is in reaction to a talk I just had with my father. . .


In the 1960's (approx 64-68) he remembers a program that showed the evolution of human culture as parts of either a totem pole or as a Roman column. One layer built upon another.

He saw it in high school and, therefor, it could be a educational film (made just for that purpose).




Anyone have any idea what show that may have been?

This is annoying.

I can never decide what to do for these types of situations!

I have a party that starts at 7:00 on Saturday. I am arriving around 6:00 to help set the table. I am wearing a kind of fancy dress. I know I should probably change clothes once I get there but I don't really want to drag my ruffly dress and necklaces on public transportation (a bus, the Metro and then another bus) across the city...but at the same time I don't want to set the table in my dress and I might want to change into more comfortable clothes later on in the night.

So I should just suck it up and bring my fancy clothes with me, right?

For you data people, I have an enormous ugly text file that is space delimited. This normally wouldn't be so evil except that not all of the data set is on one line and it's delimited differently on each line for about 10 lines, and then the pattern starts over on the next data set. Is there anything I can use to somehow pull various parts of this crap in to a spreadsheet? All of the stuff I normally use in SQL needs the space delimiting to be the same from line to line.

Edit: alternately, how much do you think it would cost to pay someone to do this for me? I would love to learn SAS and whatnot, but I'm just an admin and they don't pay me enough to justify the time I would spend on it.

Did one of your teachers ever hate you?

I'm pretty sure my first grade teacher hated me. She told my mom there was something wrong with me because I fell out of the chair. She also accused me and two others of cheating. I don't know the one cheated, considering she was in a different row on the other side and several rows ahead of us. There are other things that happened that made me think she hated me.

I just remembered I had a teacher in high school who hated me. She was one of the computer teachers. We were working on HTML and I accidentally skipped two pages because they got stuck together. I needed help, she came over, and threatened to give me detention for skipping ahead. I was confused before realizing what had had happened. Who gives a student for skipping ahead anyway? Isn't that usually a good thing? I wasn't the only one she hated though. She loved all the popular kids (Cheerleaders and sports players) and loathed the unpopular kids.

Artistic Labels

Can someone who likes to draw explore all genres of art without identifying with any in particular?

For example, say someone who drew beautiful realistic figure sketches was asked by a friend to draw something else for them, such as an anime character, a furry pose, an alien ripping out of someone chest, ect... does that force the fandom label on the artist?

Does drawing anime make someone an otaku?

Does drawing furry art make someone a furry?

Does drawing someone being swallowed whole and eaten alive make that person a vorarephile?

Does drawing a race car for a Nascar fan obligate one to sit in on the next big race and pretend to enjoy it?

Can someone accurately be called something they do not consider them selves to be, based on actions they perform on the behalf of others?

Ok, because apparently Im an idiot with Google, Have any of you ever been scammed? How did you recover? ((and how do I make the rest of this crossed out?))

I just received a call from someone saying they were from Social Security, which Ive just begun to try to get on, but I wasn't aware that the person helping me had put in a application yet (the person said that the app was received online)

So Im kinda worried, it has just occurred to me that I may have just been scammed. Can somebody tell me if this is something going around? The number I was called from was 1 800-254-9489 (if this is not allowed let me know and I will delete) can somebody help me try to find info about it and make sure it was a legit call?

say you were dating someone (a guy) for roughly 6 months that you talk to regularly (every day or two) and the last time you heard from them was a text saying "i'm driving my dad to bridgewater" on friday night. you have called and texted him to see what's going on/because you want to hang out, but they haven't responded at all. what would you think is going on?

I'm pretty sure that I have plans for a date tonight. He said he would text me and let me know when. Should I start getting ready anyway, or wait until I hear from him?

Do you have any good uses for leftover icing? (preferably nothing sexual)

 What are you listening to right now? 

What's the flavor of the month for you as far as a favorite song/genre goes? 

I'm listening to Ulver - Nowhere Catastrophe 

I recently moved into the most bitchin-est house but my computer has yet to be set up. I have to use youtube to listen to music on my roomies computer. Do you have a link to a song of your choice?

Farscape

Why does no one watch Farscape?
Why have they never even heard of Farscape?

I understand it's not the best sci fi show ever, particularly early on, but it does have many good elements (many non-humanoid aliens, good series progression etc.) and it's not as bad as Stargate, which still gets it's share of sci-fi cred.

It's because you're all racist, isn't it?

I found a recipe online a couple of months ago that was for chicken breasts. You rolled the chicken breasts in sour cream and then in crumbled-up Ritz crackers and then put them in a baking dish and baked them - you may have done something else, but I can't remember.  I can't find the recipe online anymore - my question is, does anyone either a) know where this recipe is or b) know what temperature/how long to cook chicken breasts? My mom had a really hard day at work and so I don't want her to cook tonight.

ETA: I think I'll improvise on the recipe thing. How long and at what temperature do you cook raw chicken breasts for?

tonight is chinese food night, but i don't want chinese food. my husband offered to pick up anything from a fast food restaraunt on his way home from picking up the chinese food. but i don't know what i want!

what should i get? choices include: KFC, McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, SaladWorks, that fish place, and Checkers.

bonus points if you can suggest something delicious from the place you suggest.

do you have a blu-ray player? are you pretty excited about it, as a format? or do you think it's bullshit marketing by an industry that wants us to replace our movie collections every few years so they make money?

Do you have any non-English language music (with lyrics, not like a Dutch orchestra or something) that you listen to? What is it? What is the person/group's name? What kind of music is it?

Buyer's remorse.

I just spent 80$ (including shipping) on a bag I've been pining over.

I never spend more than around 25$ on myself, especially for things that aren't necessary.

I am looking for an entry made by someone I believe about a week ago on here. I have looked, and cannot find it. Somebody posted saying something along the lines of "Would you be scared if you saw this?" and the "this" was a link to a page of this trippy design screen saver. It was all different colors, and a crap load of pics posted together, with rings spinning. I think there was a guys face in the middle(?) Anyone have the link for this page, or to the entry? Hopefully this is descriptive enough to ring a bell with someone.

What do you do to get that one guy or girl to actually ask you out? Hypothetically they already like you and you like them and you have a good friendship.
