I heard today about how apparently a family friend who was quite wealthy was taking his son for a ride in his helicopter, and he hoisted his son up on his shoulders, and the still-spinning blades took his head off. This was years ago, not recently, but still omg.
I just remembered when I was in sixth grade, I was at a friend's pool party, and this girl and I were going inside the house to get something. She was walking in front of me and walked right into the closed sliding glass door. You had to be there.

eat cheese and summer sausage.
dad is redoing the kitchen
They're ridiculous, and probably violate all the major laws of fashion, yet I cannot help wanting them. And they're cheap, so whatever. But wtf does a person wear with shiny silver leggings?
I'm not a teenager anymore, so there are some things I just can't pull off (perhaps including shiny silver leggings, but I'm going for it anyway). And I'm not someone who thinks leggings are an acceptable substitute for pants. What do you suggest, tqc?
(The leggings are from Wet Seal.)
what building do you torch?
Have you ever eaten ostrich?
Have you ever prepared it?
Can you share a good recipe? I like personal recipe recommendations better than random ones I find on google.
When I graduate in May I want to move somewhere warmer, I'm in Iowa, where should I move?
- coffee, and a micro fleece blanket watching a show on DVD, currently its Criminal Minds.
What was the last funny thing someone you love said?
- last night after dinner, my sisters friend who just got home from college came over. She was talking and I asked if she wanted any pie, and she said "yeah, I could eat a bite of pie" and my dad goes "speaking of eat a bite of pie, are there any sororities at Whitman?" I couldn't stop laughing for no reason.
Have you ever decided to drink less alcohol/stop drinking alcohol altogether?

Also why does my neighbor leave a jug of milk outside his front door all the time? (seriously it's been out there since October at least and it's all separated and frozen)
What's the last delicious meal you made?
You can give gifts any other day of the year, and it's really just another day. Shouldn't you just be happy that you are alive and well and celebrate every day?
Do you like Motorcycles?
1. the DROP program for retirement I really need to understand that in english please.
2. Someone explain to me how florida teacher retirement works I know its not as simple as "I quit whenever I want to"

How much should I charge for the pleasure of my company? I'm thinking like $40,000 is fair.
I've been wanting to get my hair cut really short for years. I finally got my balls together today and told my boyfriend I'm going to do it even if he doesn't like it.
( Collapse )
If you do think it would look good, do you have any better reference photos of a similar hairstyle? I'm afraid that one won't be good enough for the hairdresser. Thanks TQC!
If so, when you're sending a message, do you
Do you know how can I get back the songs I bought from iTunes on my other computer? When I started iTunes up on this one, it asked me to search for songs I previously bought on my account, but then nothing happened. I bought over $50 worth of songs from iTunes, so I really want to get them back. I'm using iTunes version 8.
The songs are no longer on my iPod, because I synced it to the itunes on my new computer before I realized this. oops.
Obviously I should if they're grinding every time I hit the brakes, but it's only when I'm first driving. My car is still really new (it's a 2007 I got last Thanksgiving). Does this happen to anyone else? Should I get it checked out? Is it going to cost me an arm and a leg? Do they check brakes when they change your oil? Because I just got that done a month ago and they never said anything about the brakes though they rotated my tires.
Have you seen the movie The Warriors?
I'm watching The Warriors for the first time after only hearing about it for the first time on Halloween.
What is your favourite 80s movie?
I would say Central Perk from Friends or the Diner (I can't remember the name I think, Liberty ?) in Queer as Folk.
I have looked at target.com, ikea.com, bedbathandbeyond.com, illuminations.com, potterybarn.com, and crateandbarrel.com. I found one I liked at illuminations, but the shipping cost as much as the giant candle holder thing, so I'm going to keep looking.
What other websites could I check?

If you saw Wall-E, did you like it? I have been avoiding it due to resemblances to certain other robots who freaked my five-year-old self the crap out, but my sister's forcing me to see it tonight.
If you have tattoos do you feel it is alright for people to request to touch them?
2. Do you remember the first time you pulled a knife on your mom? Do you laugh about it to this day?
3. Has she put you back in her will yet?
4. How long was your father confined to a wheelchair when you 'accidentally' ran over his left leg 3 times in a cul-de-sac? Does he still walk with a limp?
5. Who else learned to swim when their parents dragged them out of their room at 2am, tossed into a potato sack and thrown into the ocean?
The important thing is that it made us all better people, right?
I went to upload a new userpic and I just found it there, I don't remember putting it there, considering I always use my picture besides Pikachu.
TQC, where did this userpic come from, and for that matter, what the hell is it anyway? A cow? Did anyone else get this?
Nevermind, apparently this is very, very old.
If you couldn't care less about my userpic issues...
Firefox or Internet Explorer?
Edited to fix my massive fail
Why does she suck so much? I really do not like her at all.
Have you been there?
i mean, i'm thinking, a huge percentage of the population has oral herpes anyway. so it would suck to pass up kissing someone because they told you they have oral herpes, only to get it from someone else anyway just because they didn't tell you.
i mean, would you just go for it?
also, how weird is it to fuck someone without kissing them? like "i don't want your oral herpes but i'll have sex with you."
Not made up. These actually happened.
What would yours be?
1) why is my vagina constantly wet? it seems to think i'm turned on even when i'm not.
2) is it fair for a dude to get pissed that you start rubbing your clitoris while he's fucking you? does that imply that he's not doing enough for you, or something? because i don't really see anything wrong with that.
2. Have you ever gotten into a heated debate about Helvetica?
3. Helvetica or Neue Helvetica?
4. Do you hate Arial as much as I do? I really hate Arial. ETA: It can kick Helvetica's ass. Arial is just a shitty knock-off!
It is against the cemetery's policy to do this.
Would you go through with it?
Do you feel this makes Jay Mohr more likable or less of a man?
What should we eat?
has one of your friends ever done this? said you could borrow something and then pretend they didnt give you permission and freaked out on you? I'm giving everything back tonight after work cause I'm kind of angry that he pulled that shit, should I throw it at him? take the batteries out of the controller? or just be nice and apologize (for absolutely nothing)?

If so, who's your favorite lesser-known poet (i.e., someone whose work is not commonly read in a typical 1st-year English survey course)? Care to post your favorite poem of theirs?
Do you write poetry yourself?
My answer is in the comments.
Why is it that I can not be touching my cat and he just looks at me and purrs?
When I see completely livid, insane comments, I always wonder what the person behind the keyboard looks like while they're typing it up. Could you tell that they're pissed, or do they look perfectly normal?
So, tqc, what do you look like while engaged in a flame war?
What's the biggest sacrifice you've ever made for someone you love?
I can't wait! I love going to school/work and keeping busy.
I hate holidays. They shouldn't even exist.
Anyone else here hates holidays?
If you don't. why do you like holidays?
What should I buy at Barnes & Noble with my $25 gift card??
And finally, my brother just broke up with his crazy girlfriend this morning at 3 am. On Christmas morning he gave her 300 dollar diamond earrings. How do I convince him that he should totally get those shits back? (He says he doesn't want to, but rather he wants her to keep them so she "understands the gravity of what she did." Basically what she did is be a crazy overbearing biiiiitch for the last year and a half. Long story short.) ORRR am I totally misled in thinking that she should give them back? I sure as hell wouldn't want diamond earrings that my ex-boyfriend gave me for Christmas, 24 hours before breaking up with me.
Do you visit your friends at work?
Should I wait three more hours to have dinner so I can get something with my friend when she gets out of work? (*I have work at 5am...and we'll be leaving at about 10ish to get food)
3) con-tro-ver-sull in which case wtf is wrong with you
4) some other variation
I want to make it as awesome as possible, so I don't mind harsh comments.
When I was in college, I never did the study abroad thing, and I've always regretted not going. I'm not in college anymore, have a graduate degree and a career. Now, though, I'm thinking that I want to leave the country to study abroad. I know that there are programs out there for post-grad people, but I'm wondering which ones are the best? Anyone else have experience with this kind of thing?
who's going to Wal-Mart for an iPhone next week?
Good idea, bad idea, or neutral?
If not, what are your New Year's Eve plans?! :)
Depends on who's calling for me. Some people get a very drawn out "mmmmmmmyyyeeeeesssssss?," some people get the "YELLO!," some get the standard "Hello?"
If the one you are using right now doesn't, do you have an icon that does relate to your username?
my friend wants to lose her virginity by being double-penetrated. how do i convince her this is a horrible idea?
how old were you, what was it, and how did it get removed?
Should I go any way?
Double - u?
Could this man be a sex symbol today?
I am so frustrated with dinner that I would almost buy a DS and this thing to make it easier.
Part of the reason I'm so excited is because I can finally get rid of the ungodly snarl of wires and cords under my desk and set myself up with wireless internet. In advance of getting the computer, I've been googling everything I can about setting up wireless internet access. I'm not worried about it, really, because I know that one phone call to my ISP will get it set up for me.
However. In my googlings, I've read in several different articles that you need a wireless router to set up wireless internet access. Is that really necessary, or is that only if you're going to be having more than one computer set up? My laptop will be the only one set up for net access, as my father (God love him) couldn't navigate the Internet with a map and a Sherpa to guide him.
HALP, TQC. Do I need a wireless router for just one computer, or will my modem (which is fully wireless capable) suffice? I know some shit about computers, but not this much. LOL.
Nine Months. I love it because that movie's funny and I love Hugh Grant/Julianne Moore's characters together. I also like the song they dance to, but I have no clue what the name of it is.
omg no fucking shit I edit it. but WHERE or WHAT to I select to turn off the emails?

2) What's the dumbest question you've been asked?
3) What's the best way to clean a rusty key?
I already told her that I won't be staying after the end of the month but I really want to leave asap.
Will you tell me about your family's dynamics?
My mom is jealous of the relationship that my dad has with me. My mom has an obsessive relationship with my sister and favors her over me. My dad is jealous of my sister and the attention that my mom showers her with. And I pretty much can't stand anyone at varying points during the day.
or in the past year or whatever if you can think of something really terrible
is it a bad idea to have a threesome with two of your friends? will it inevitably make things awkward or could it all work out?
I need new music.
( Collapse )
( Collapse )
Yes, I did.
Does it annoy you when drunk people post on TQC?
Will you be my LJ friend?
Any genre of music is welcome. Right now I have Ride of the Valkyries, Oh Fortuna, and Can't You Hear Me Knocking by the Rolling Stones. (I couldn't resist on that last one.)
What will your next job be?
My house is throwing a party. Free liquor is fine by me.
Why? Any ideas?
What is the person nearest to you doing?
If you were in the same situation, would you:
Give a gift on each holiday?
Or give a gift on the one you celebrated only?
Or give a gift on the one your SO celebrated only?
We do the first option.
Will you help me, please, by providing a set of four related names for our four handsets?

Edit for unrelated question: I'm having a major Queer as Folk craving right now, but I can't figure out which episode to watch. I only own seasons 1 and 2 (totally wish I had 3 right now)...which would you recommend?
I don't listen to the radio so the overplaying doesn't affect me, but I really like Beyonce's If I Were A Boy.. and her songs usually make me want to bang my head against the wall.
