What is the worst conclusion you have ever jumped to?

How do you say hello?

If you had a 100$ bill in your zipper, do you honestly think someone would reach for it?  Honestly? Would your shirt cover it up?

Is it cold where you are to?

1. I just had a conversation like this concerning Christmas Day:

Me: yeahhhh we're just like hanging out at my house all day and eating food at 5 pm or something ridic
Good Friend: You're lucky. My dad's going to Tennessee so I'll be spending the day alone.
Me: Oh yeah? All alone?
Good Friend: Yeah, it's shit. Oh well, it's just going to suck since {only other friend} isn't going to be around, either.

So, I should invite my friend for Christmas dinner, shouldn't I?

2. Who are you celebrating Christmas with? (If you celebrate it, but feel free to answer for whatever you may be celebrating, whether that be another holiday or just some free time.)

OMG College dramaz.

Okay, some background.

I have this friend, Al. (Al is the president of a club I'm in in college, and back in September, we got a new bunch of freshmen.) One of these freshmen, Ben, has developed a massive crush on Al. Al, not quite realising this, made out with him at a party a while ago, and ever since then, every night a bunch of us are out but Al's not there, I spend about half of my night with Ben poking me and asking where Al is.

Al has so far, pretty much shrugged off Ben's crush, whilst admitting that making out with him was a bit of a miscalculation.

At a party last week, after he'd asked me about sixteen times where Al was, Ben got completely wasted, and had to be walked home by three of us.

Do you think it would be a good idea for me (a relatively uninvolved third party) to have a bit of a talk with Ben? Or to talk to Al about his needing to talk to Ben? Some of us are concerned about how much longer this is going to go on, and about how devastated Ben is going to be. (Ben's from the back end of nowhere, and still maintains he isn't gay, but is just into Al, so he's not exactly the most emotionally-together of individuals.)

Any advice would be excellent.

So i have a cold. It's kicking my ass and i can't sleep. I hate the coughing with a passion. Some sneezing here and there. One blocked nostril and one runny nostril. It's a total party! But i have a question, is it normal to make a weezing sound when breathing? Is it the phlegm?

Anyway, my sister took the last dose of cold medicine D: so i am going without meds right now. Do you have any good NOT GROSS home remedies for colds that DO work?

Thanks y'all!

help please :)

so my boyfriend is in egypt right now and when he gets back i was going to give him his christmas present and he wanted that cool water by davidoff cologne... i kind of just want to get it online and not go to a store or anything... (i don't even know what it smells like, but that's the one he asked for)

this is it:



it's pretty cheap on this website, so how reputable do you think that website is? i'm not really much of an online shopper...

also:
-if you've smelled that cologne before, what do you think of it?
and
-what are you getting the people you love for the holidays (if anything)?

1. What non-traditional, interesting formats and approaches have there been in comics/manga?

I'm referring something other than the standard, boring format of a series of superficial pictures with dialog. Perhaps there are hybrid formats, like something in between a novel and comic (NOT a traditional graphic novel, which is essentially just a long comic book with a continuous story line and an end).

EDIT: The above is just an example, I'm interested in any new forms of originality in comics/manga and hybrids.

2. Is there any way to download all of the messages from a gmail account with many messages? I've found that with pop3, it often repeats the same messages several times, has little consistency in terms of order of download, and it limits you to about 1,000 messages per attempt.

3. Why are people calling this "Whopper Virgins" ad campaign exploitative? The people just eat and give their opinion on burgers on tv.

There's a Hanukah-themed coffee cup I want to buy, because it's the right size and because it's just pretty. I'm not Jewish and have no Jewish heritage. I worry all the time about accidentally offending people. You know this. Would it be appropriate for me to buy this and carry it, with the express purpose of buying coffee in it instead of disposable cups? Hearing from real live Jewish people would be appreciated.

I am drunk, so if this post is fail that is the reason.

Wow.

Okay, let me preface this by saying that I work at a hotel in the Washington, DC area. So it isn't that unusual to have CIA, FBI, Secret Service, ect staying here, especially since the government is cheap and we're a budget hotel. But 99 times out of 100, if they're any of the above, you won't know it unless you need to.

But this lady . . . she came downstairs last night and started a conversation with me. She claims she is "under deep cover" and "about to take down the mob." She has been here for over a month, and as a general rule, she is highly paranoid. She doesn't want calls transferred to her room and we are not allowed to "confirm or deny" that she is staying here.

Crazy? A pathological liar? Or just a really bad government agent?

the weather where i live has been a bitch on wheels the past 4 days...first we lost power and now the windchill is in the -30 degree range and all of our pipes are frozen solid..
Although we are staying at my In Laws for the duration, my cats are all at home. They are all outside animals and have proper shelter, straw, fresh food and water and all that jazz.

Now, I worry that the severe weather and winds will harm them in some way. My husband claims that they are ok because they have fur and we check on then 4 times a day.

Last night when I went home to care for them, I took their partable cage in the house and let them stay inside and out of the cold weather.
In my lease, it says no pets indoors. And if my husband knew they were inside he would shit. But I let them in anyways.

Would you have left the cats outside? or let them stay indoors and be warm and safe for the night?

I went back to the house at 6 am to feed them and let them back outside for alittle bit. And again they DO have proper housing outside also.

Confrontations :(

TQC, my boss does not understand how to format things in Word yet insists on writing a textbook that looks horrible. I have tried to tell her how to do things but she simply does not understand. I told her she could ask me for help but her version of asking me for help is writing 30 pages that she has put into a horrible fragile format that doesn't work at all and then asking me to "fix it" for her (she wrote me an e-mail telling me "I know it looks horrible and I wonder if you can do something about it"), which then requires me to re-type every single one of the pages because she has formatted it so horrible that it's irreparable without doing so. I even told her once that I had re-typed all 100 pages she had written and that obviously did not inspire her to actually get it right the second time she tried this.

How can I get her to understand that she needs to let someone else do this, or allow someone to give her a lesson about how to do it properly (even though I tried, twice, but that obviously didn't work)? Would it be a horrible idea to get a third person involved since I'm bad at confrontations myself?

It just looks SO BAD. So terrible. So unprofessional. But I don't have the heart to tell her that she needs to get her hands away from the computer until she knows what she's doing.

I emailed my prof a while ago asking what her schedule is like before the holidays because I have a couple of urgent questions I need to ask her. Yesterday she emails me back saying she'll be available today at 10am. I wasn't expecting that kind of short notice, because I'm out of the state and can't drive back. I emailed her back saying that I'm not in the area, and could I call her at 10am instead. No response.

So is it reasonable to instead call her at 10am, even if I don't know whether she got my email yesterday?

If circumstances don't permit you to ask over the phone, is asking for a letter of rec over the phone really that bad?

So last year after Christmas I told my roommate the story of when I was 4 or 5 and I told a mall Santa that I wanted a baseball bat for Christmas and he told me that baseball bats aren't for little girls. And that despite asking my mom for a baseball bat for Christmas for several years after that, I never got one. The other day, she mentioned that my Christmas present had shipped and that it should be here by Christmas, since it was only coming from Kentucky. She totally bought me a personalized Louisville Slugger baseball bat, y/y?

What present are you most looking forward to giving this year?

Dear TQC,

My dad's VCR died and I've decided that I want to try and download some of his favorite old movies and burn them to DVD for him. So far, I have the original Godzilla and When Worlds Collide. He enjoys old sci-fi, war films, and some westerns. Can you help me come up with a good list for him?

I know we all hate gift questions but I am desperate. I need to get a gift for my friend.

Him:

-27 year-old male, a politically conservative cop (mostly works 4-12pm shifts).
-spends a ton of money on the best gadgets/electronics
-isn't handy at ALL, has to pay everyone to do everything for him
-fairly athletic: runner and cyclist
-LOVES drinking good beer and red wines
-likes music and TV
-RIDICULOUSLY picky eater, so can't be any sort of gift basket involving food. Seriously, most children have more diverse tastes than he does when it comes to food.
-most of the stuff he needs or wants, he indulges in on his own.
-Has his own condo but is not really into cooking or anything.

I want to spend around $50. Do you have any suggestions? Hookers and blow would be great but I think they're a bit out of my price range this year.

Also, I'd prefer for it to be an actual gift rather than a gift certificate.

It appears I have run out of deodorant. And there is none in the house. NONE AT ALL!
I have to go out in an hour and I'd really rather not be smelly/sweaty. I don't have time for a full shower, and showering tends to stimulate it all anyway and make me sweatier in the long run if I don't use deodorant.

TQC, why has my boyfriend not emailed me yet today?  We normally start our daily email conversation about 8 am or so. It is now nearly noon!

Did he freeze in his bed overnight, because he is too cheap to turn the heat up to a decent level?  Is he avoiding his stalker girlfriend?

WHO ELSE CAN I TALK TO IN ORDER TO AVOID BOREDOM AT WORK?

Also, the windchill is -18 degrees F out there. Am I crazy for walking a couple blocks to pick up lunch?


NONSRS ANSWERS!!  I need some entertainment.


Edit: Aw, he has no internet today. And I braved the wind, and got my lunch. It was SO worth it.  Their food is always too hot anyway, so it was perfect by the time I got back to my desk. :)

Seek Revenge ?

Inspired by a post in madradstalkers which said:

So my boyfriend who I was supposed to marry after 5 years of dating (1 year engaged) has just reveiled to me that he has cheated on me not once but 3 times and doesn't want me anymore. I am totally heart broken to the point of being ill. But I want revenge on his vain selfceneter ass. I am going to his house tonight to say "bye" and was going to ask to use his bathroom. I was gonna pull the nair in the shampoo and put the sewing needles through his flat iorns. Think amalie. Any other good suggestions?? I will have like 5 min if I say I am going #2 lol

If your fiancee did that to you ( ^ ) would you seek revenge or do you feel it is immature and you're better off to move on and get over it? If you would seek revenge, what would you do?

Money money!

Perhaps a simple answer, but I received an email from an employer offering to  pay me:

"700 € net, approx 1500 € brut"

What does he mean? I know the little symbol is a Euro, but what's the "brut" and "net" mean?

The employer is based out of Germany and the Netherlands, by the way, and I'm in the US.

I don't get this.

Does anyone else get friend requests from people you don't know, and you go to their info page, and they have no or very few entries, friends, or interests?

Furthermore, are their pages always in Russian?

This keeps happening to me, and it drives me crazy. At first I added them back, but then found out that not only were they not posting, but they had un-added me later. What is the point of this? Is this a joke? Is it a spamming attempt? Is there something about my username or interests that makes them want to add me, only to find out later that I'm not what they were looking for? They never comment, never send me any messages, and my LJ is clearly in ENGLISH and I have never once indicated that I can speak, read, or write in Russian.

Also, if anyone here can read Russian and tell me what their short bio says, that might give me a hint.

My brother got a little laptop for Christmas. It's one of these tiny little machines that's really only designed for web browsing and some small programs. It cost $350 and weighs two and a half pounds! It has enough storage for his tiny music collection (he has an 8 G mp3 player, and can't believe he would ever fill it.) He might use it to stream videos and download porn and a little more music, nothing complicated, but potentially virus-laden.

He is about as computer stupid as a person of his generation can be. Every computer he has ever owned crashed and burned due to virus infestations. I want to make this thing idiot-proof. I plan to get him all set up to download torrents and everything he needs so he won't ever have to download programs. He can't be trusted to download programs.

I downloaded AdAware and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. He has a 60 day trial of McAfee, I'll download AVG free when it expires. (Is it worth it to have them both at the same time?) I am downloading Firefox now and will delete all the shortcuts to Explorer. (Can it be uninstalled?)

What else should I do?

eta: I keep accidentally zooming in an out of pages. I assume it has this function because it's a really small screen? Idk. Does anybody know the keyboard shortcut for this? I'm still using IE if it matters.

I usually fly Continental and I can carry-on both a backup full of thing ('personal item') and a duffel bag that is rather full but fits in overheads. Not oversized, but not a tiny duffel. It doesn't technically fall within their dimension guidelines, but I've never had a problem and together it isn't more luggage than I can easily manage by myself.

Is Southwest really strict about carry-ons?

Boo email forwards

Okay, so I've been at my current job for about 6 months. Everything was fine and dandy until this new girl came along. I love her to death, she's awesome, but...she SENDS ANNOYING EMAIL FORWARDS! Not only that, but she always includes a read receipt...on lame little "You're my friend! Pass this on!" forwards. Gah, it's obnoxious.

So my question, TQC, is what should I do about this? Should I tell her to stop sending them and possibly piss her off (which I don't want to do)? Or should I just put up with the emails (which she sends 2-3x a week)? Or something else I haven't thought of?

Edit: I think I'm just too nice. Clearly, I need to delete them without reading and move on with my life. Thanks all!

there is a video of George Bush, our illustrious president, saying "we have no evidence linking Saddam Hussein to 9/11." i cannot find video of this anywhere except a short clip on youtube.

where is the full video???

EDIT: if it helps, i think the video was originally shown on CBS's Early Morning Show, possibly on August 7th.

My brother-in-law just proposed to his girlfriend!

1. Would it be cheesy for me to send her a 'congrats and welcome to the family' card?

2. What good news have you gotten today?

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the least, and 10 being the most, how judgmental do you think you are towards people?

What is something that someone said/did to you or for you that made you change the way you lived? Or rather, impacted you?

i work for a computer repair franchise and each month i make a newsletter to send out to customers. usually i include some tech/computer related articles (tips, news, cool new products, etc) and then some non-related stuff geared toward kids (recipes, crafts, info about holidays). i also include a word search or crossword puzzle and a calendar with holidays and events and shit.

right now i am working on the newsletter for the month of january and i have NO idea what to include. so far i've got some tips for using ms word, info about some free software downloads, and the calendar and word search. any idea wtf else i can include? ideas for recipes/crafts? cool gadgets you've heard about?

For those who have bought a car and got a loan for it:

Have you ever been approved for the loan, taken the car home, etc, and then have the bank send you a letter saying they denied you the loan? (I have had the car for 2-3 weeks now)

I just did and I'm really puzzled. The only think I can think of is fiddling with my insurance coverage and calling them tomorrow.
