Do you have pictures of yourself at a major high school or college event- as in Graduation, Prom, Class trip, etc...?
Will you post them (or one of them) for TQC to see?
If you have it online, will you post one of your senior pictures or a picture you had "professionally" done?


If not, what do you regret doing or not doing in High school or college? Even if you're still in the process, maybe something you would have done sooner.

cleaning things...oh joy

Y helo thar, TQC!

I have a wet-to-dry hair straightener (this one, actually) and I recently started using it again after getting a hair cut and dye job.
Now that I'm using it again, I've noticed how utterly gross the plates/grooves are on the straightening part. The grooves that pull the water up and out are the worst part.


How do I get the straightener clean (or at least less gross)?
I've tried hot water and a q-tip, but it took some work and isn't really time-efficient. q-tips do fit perfectly in the grooves, however.


Serious and non serious appreciated. :P


If you don't care:

My roommate loved his Christmas present, but says he's still working on mine. He's good at construction and mechanical things (so in theory he could be building me something), and he's amazing at photography.

What's my roomie making me for Christmas?
To the best of my knowledge, he's not into making gifts.....

For you whose haircolor isn't natural at this point:

What's the current color of your hair?
What's the previous color of your hair right before your current haircolor?

I just got mine in color dark auburn brown (very rich :O) from being medium ash blonde (not real color) I was over a half year. Huge difference!

What are your plans for tomorrow?

Taking a road trip to the other side of Virginia for family reunion of my mom's side. I haven't had seen many of those relatives in almost 10 years and I'm so looking forward to see most of them again.

How should I go about exacting my revenge if my boyfriend reneges on his offer* to give me his computer when he builds the new one?

Today he was like "Why don't you just replace your video card?" when I commented on my monitors resolution. This leads me to believe he has changed his mind. Not like.."Oh well you'll have this one soon!" =( I kinda want it really bad TQC. Kind a lot.

Note: 100% his offer. I did not ask for it.

Does anyone know where I can download anaglyph 3D versions of The Mask, Robot Monster, The French Line, Dangerous Mission, or Man in the Dark, or really, any other full length anaglyph 3D (ie red/blue, red/cyan lensed glasses-viewed) movies.

I will love you 4evuh for a nod in the right direction.

I had sex Tuesday night. Tonight, when I finished peeing I was wiping and noticed something .. I look down and it's a condom .. I was so freaked out. I knew it fell off during because we stopped to put another one on, but I had no idea it was INSIDE ME for three days. I'm going to be okay, right?

How did I not NOTICE that?!

Has that ever happened to you??

Anyone know of any super good tattoo parlors in NYC? 

I am travelling to NY and would like to get some ink done while i am there.  I will only be there for 15 days but I don't want to just do a walk-in.  So I guess I am looking for a good place, that will be able to fit me into their schedule for two sessions one week apart.

So, I guess a follow up question is does anybody know any tattoo artists in NYC that are willing to be contacted through e-mail?

EDIT: FUCK!  I just realized that it is 4:45 AM on the east side at this point.  My chances of getting a response are slim to shit.  Awesome.

Expiration date

You're sick and weak and coughing a lot, so you go to the doctor and after numerous tests, you're informed that you have a super rare disease that's never been seen in your country and only affects like 5 people a year. This disease is fatal and because you waited til when you did to see the doctor, you really don't have much longer to live. Just 1 hour, give or take.several minutes. You can obviously go and do what you can to savor these last 60 minutes or so, but the doctor makes you an offer. If you submit both your lungs now, while they're alive, he will pay your family $50,000. It will be used to study this rare disease and there's a benefit to having the organ 'fresh'. If you take this option, you will be wheeled into the ER and you'll die on the operating table. All in all, you live about a half hour away. So, the question is, how will you spend your last hour?

This might be a tough one. I remember hearing this as a lyric in a song, or maybe I read it in a book, or I saw it in a movie. It's this scenario I have in my head, that I can't remember where it came from.

I think it was a guy talking to a girl. Someone he had just broken up with, or just had a very close relationship with.

The scenario goes something like, they're parting ways, and the guy says to the girl, "I don't know. I just always felt like somehow, I'll be ninety years old and walking down the street, and I'll turn a corner, and there you'll be."
Like their lives were tied together that way.

Does this sound familiar to anyone? Where might I have gotten this from?

Have you or anyone you know ever done post-secondary education online/through a correspondence course?

I did a year of college and then had to drop out this october because of health problems, and now I dont know when I'll realistically be able to go back. There's a course offered at a college in my province that I'm really interested in (library and information technician, if youre curious) and I figure it's the best option for me because of the situation.

So I guess I'm asking for experiences, anecdata, etc about correspondence/online learning.


And because that question is kinda boring, what's your favourite thing to have for breakfast? I just had some Christmas dessert, but I'm REALLY craving hash browns.

Another book recommendation request, since I'm hitting the library again today.

Back in the mood for fantasy/supernatural. I'm especially fond of urban fantasy/supernatural-- Neil Gaiman, Charles de Lint, Alice Borchardt, Sergei Lukyanenko, etc. But also general fantasy with shapeshifters, avatars, non-human races, dragons, etc-- Robin Hobb, other authors who escape me at eight in the morning.

Any suggestions for good books and authors? In particular more obscure ones, I know about the various steadfasts of fantasy.

Star Trek

That funny "A" looking thing

oh the weather outside was frightfulTry to answer this on your own before looking it up. I as much want to know as find out if anyone has a clue off the top of their heads.

Back during the original series of Star Trek each ship had a specific symbol that its crew wore on their shirts. The thing in my icon was the one specific to the Enterprise. By the time the first movie rolled around, it was suddenly the symbol for Starfleet in general and it's remained that way pretty much ever since.
  • What does it stand for? Is there a specific meaning behind it?

  • Why did they switch to that particular symbol over all the others?

Is there any way to hook up my 360 (thanks to my sexy santa!) to my iMac?

I'd imagine there'd be some sort of of terrible fight between the two, resulting in loss of limb and broken hearts. Or possibly the iMac would make condescending remarks while the 360 gets the Red Ring of Death.

Silliness aside, is it possible?

Job applications

You know places where to apply for a job the only option is to take it on a computer and take a half hour long stupid multiple choice personality test thing with questions such as "I am an angry person" (1) very (2) slightly (3) moderately (4) not at all (5) I'm the happiest person in the world I just might go manic and kill someone!!!!!!!!! ?

Every single time I've applied on one of those no one EVER gets back to me.

How do I get a job at one of these places?!? Have you ever had any luck?

And why do they bother with the test in the first place - to prevent honest people from getting a job there?

It will be a late Christmas gift and super-late birthday gift (my birthday was in July, lol) from my parents. As such, price is not a factor, though my guilt over the price is.
Please justify your answer (srs and non-srs answers welcome)!

I'm stealing qa's idea for this question.

What are your favorite tqc posts/questions/drama/anything of 2008 and why?

I'm a HUGE fan of the strippers that poo found. Most hilarious/entertaining thing I've seen in a long time. I don't remember who posted the question but it was something along the lines of "what questions would get asked in TQC if it were the 90's?" and it generated some awesome comments! And all the political drama crazies kept me entertained for a long time this year.

Someone on another forum contended that it does not count as "charity" unless you're giving to an entity that helps people.

I'm over at my mom's friend Mary's house; She asked me for help fixing her printer.

The printer is three years old; it's a Canon iP1800. When I tried to print a picture, the paper loaded crooked and then stopped printing. I'm not sure exactly how to fix it, since I've never really worked with a printer at home and don't have one on my computer. Mary says she's had her kids try to help her fix it, and had the same problem.

I guess my question is, should I even try to fix this thing, or does Mary need to get a new printer?

Last question about this job EVAR!

So I asked about quitting my job yesterday.
I told my boss that next Sunday would be my last day. (We had previously discussed my leaving so this wasn't out of the blue...she actually asked me when I was going)

She then called me later on in the day to tell me that I won't be needed for my shift tomorrow or next week and that I should just pick up my money next Saturday.

Was this a passive aggressive move or was she just being nice?
Did she purposely screw me out of the $250 that I'd make, and planned on making?

TQC, I bought a coexist sticker for my car (http://www.peacemonger.org/images/CoexistMeaning.jpg) and my dad saw it and flipped out because there is a wiccan/pagen symbol on it, as well as an islamic symbol, as well as a star of david. This is the point of the sticker, and its why I bought it. My family is non-denominational Christian, but I don't go to church or practice any set religion. My mom is fine with the sticker, she though it was "neat". 

So TCQ, do you think my dad is being irrational, or do you see where he is coming from?

ETA: do you know why he would react this way? & how could I explain the meaning of the sticker to him so he DOESN'T get upset?

A few months ago I dropped my cell phone and since then it's impossible to slide the back on completely (although it does stay, it just kind of slides around) and if I jostled the phone even a little sometimes it would say it didn't recognize my SIM card. Recently it got so bad that I had to tape my SIM card into place, but since then it's been totally functional.

Should I bother trying to get it repaired? I'm only going to be in this country eight more months. I have no idea how much it would cost to get it repaired but the only things "broken" are the back cover (slightly) and the little metal thing I slide my SIM card into.

Just so you know how they are... I watch sex & the city with them all the time, there are a few episodes that have gotten uncomfortable but basically it's okay.

Happy birthday. I mean...professional day.

I live in a primarily Caucasian, affluent district. None of the middle/elementary/high schools have ever recognized Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday as a truly significant holiday (or rather, one that students would not have to attend school on), but in the elementary/middle schools, they usually did some kind of commemorative lesson in Social Students. High school, not so much, but it's the same with many other federal holidays.
This year, there are many more African-American students (still about enough to count on maybe two hands, but more than my freshman and sophomore years). A senior African-American student brought the issue of not celebrating MLK Jr.'s birthday to the administration and "convinced" them to give students off for that day. We received a letter today addressing this change, but merely said "Monday the 19th has been dedicated a professional day for staff, so there will be no school for students to give teachers an opportunity to catch up on their work."
Although I was never really interested in making this a "day-off" holiday, I thought about the student who fought for this change and how he must be reacting to this "professional day."
Also, they decided that in order to make up for a lost day, the day would replace one of our snow days, so we're only allowed 2 days off without removing a day from Spring break / adding a day to the school year instead of the usual 3.

Is the administration refraining from regarding the day as what the day actually is on purpose or is there some underlying reason, like they're trying to avoid controversy or something?

*Browsing the internets for a new lamp

*Reading one of the four books I have on the go

*Laundry

Or can you lovely people suggest alternative entertainment that doesn't involve going outside and spending money? I don't want to go out because it's cold outside :(

I briefly tried google, but I'm kinda slow tonight and don't really know what to google for.

I have an old iPod and it's library on my computer. It is shitty. I'm buying a nano in a few days and I want to keep the old library only to transfer some of the songs to the new nano.

Basically, I want about 500 (of 950) songs from my old iPod to go to my new nano. Do I just sync the nano to the old library and once every song has transferred delete the songs I don't want anymore from the nano? Will that delete the songs from my library as well? (That is what I want.) Can someone tell me or help me find instructions on how to do this without fucking it up?

I think that I am going to be okay. :)

Are you going to be okay?

Also, that rate-yourself post made me think that it seems that the members of TQC have a low self esteem. Why is that?

1a. TQC, would you give your honest opinion about how reliable online diagnostic tests are?

1b. Do you enjoy taking them?

2. Will you tell me a favourite natural remedy for some ailment?

headphones recommendations?

I want to start listening to music while I am at the gym, but I don't find most headphones comfortable. I use the ear clip kind now, and they're okay, but they still hurt my ears after a little bit. I think I'm fine going totally geeky and getting proper over-the-ear headphones, but don't know what kind to get.

I was originally thinking of Bose noise reducing headphones, but they are ridiculously expensive and I don't think I need the noise reduction so much as the sound quality and comfort. Does anyone have any good, cost effective recommendations? Something that folds or is otherwise easy to transport is a plus.

How often do you shower?
Night or morning?
For the average person-they wear clean clothes, brush teeth at least twice a day, wash hands after using restroom etc (basically they have average grooming habits) how long can they go without a shower before it's gross?

Do you think your SO has the right to give criticism, constructive or otherwise, about how you look without your asking?

Do you think anybody else has the right to (parents, friends, etc.)?

I am currently in my favorite thermals, drinking cheap wine and looking for a movie to watch.
I've narrowed my Netflix DVD instant queue to some movies that I think will do me just right for tonight; however, I can't decide on one and know that I can't make it through a couple.

So my question to you guys is:
Of the following movies, which should I watch?
(I know this question may have been better if it was done in a poll, but I don't know how to make one! Also, keep in mind that I have never seen any of the movies listed.)


Broken Flowers
Living in Oblivion
A Clockwork Orange
He Died with a Felafel in His Hand
Sex, Lies, Videotape
Broken English
Pan's Labyrinth
Eraserhead
Who's Afraid of Virgina Wolfe?
Cashback
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
Casablanca
Charade
