1. When I go in I might cause pain. I cause you to spit and ask you not to swallow. I can fill your hole.

What am I?

2. A finger goes in me. You fiddle with me when you're bored. The best man always has me first.

What am I?

3. I'm spread before I'm eaten. Your tongue gets me off. People sometimes like to lick my nuts.

What am I?

4. I go in hard. I come out soft. You blow me hard.

What am I?

5. All day long it's in and out. I discharge loads from my shaft. Both men and women go down on me.

What am I?

6. I come in many sizes. When I'm not well, I drip. When You blow me you feel good.

What am I?

7. If I miss, I hit your bush. It's my job to stuff your box. When I come, it's news.

What am I?

8. I offer protection. I get the finger ten times. You use your fingers to get me off.

What am I?

9. I assist an erection. Sometimes big balls hang from me. I'm called a big swinger.

What am I?

10. I'm at least 6 inches long. I leave foamy lubrication when engaged in my job.

What am I?

i take ambien sometimes and it mostly puts me to sleep. However, last night it knocked me for a loop first. i felt stoned and drunk at the same time; like i was dizzy and stumbling, yet slow and plodding.

Anyone else experience this? What does it mean? Will i die? what time is lunch?

So I'm making doughnuts, but I was an idiot and made them and now I'm tired. The dough, which is still rising, is sitting in a bowl. Can I fall asleep and finish them off in the morning? The recipe doesn't say I can, but I'm worried that they won't rise the second time after I have cut them.

...Zune owners, halp plz?

About ten minutes ago, I was listening to my Zune when all of a sudden, it went off, and the opening "restore" screen came on, and once the line reached the end, it just stopped. It's been frozen on that screen ever since, and the drive is making a little humming noise. I've gotten the restore screen once or twice, but it's never done the frozen screen-humming thing before. Should I let it run until the battery dies down or should I just wait and call the tech people?

What religious ceremonies and/or rites have you gone through or have been a part of? (Such as Baptism, Bar Mitzvah and Pilgrimages.)

Do you have any stories to share about these events and your role in them?

So my guy friend is telling me about how he woke up this morning and has had a shooting pain from his uh.. "left nut" and down his leg. He thinks it could be pressure from what he wore to sleep last night. He also looked it up and it could be cause his "junk is too full"

I feel bad. He sounds like he's in a lot of pain. He says he wasn't really able to move, and he says it still hurts.

I'm trying to watch all the worth seeing teenage/ high school/coming of age movies that have come out since the '80s to now. So TQC can you list all the teenage movies you can think off of the top of your head?

Yesterday was my 21st birthday, but instead of getting drunk, I broke a toe. I did have a couple of margaritas and taste various flavors of Smirnoff, however!

What's the best way to deal with a broken toe?

I feel so ripped off.

When my earphones of 1 year died,I bought two earphones (they haven't died yet but they're really cheap-sort of bad). My mom got me these awesome Sony in-the-ear earphones for Christmas and they're already BROKEN and I didn't do A SINGLE DAMN THING TO THEM the right side doesn't work anymore! I'm so furious.

Party ideas

Hey guys

I'm sure there will be lots of New years questions, so feel free to direct me to previous posts if I missed them but....

I'm having a party tonight and would like to know what are some of your favorite party snacks, desserts and drink recipes?  Links if you have them please! 

Thanks and happy new year!

Inspired by tip wank, the best type of wank around:
EveryoneMany, many people seems to think that in the majority of restaurants, tips are pooled and doled out evenly between servers. I've worked at several restaurants in several states, of varying fanciness, and this hasn't been the case, which leaves me curious.
Have you worked as a server at a restaurant in the US?
What type(s) of restaurant was it, and in what part of the US?
Did you pool tips and then dole them out evenly?
Do you think that's a good/fair practice?

Does anyone know who I can call to have someone come and hook up my DVD/VCR player to my TV? Nobody in this house knows how to do it, the directions are too hard to understand. I need to hook up some kind of converter box with it, too. The Geek Squad can't come for 4-5 more days. Who else could I call that could come today, possibly? I should add that my father tried to do it and as a result our TV does not work at all and he doesn't remember how to fix it back the way it was.

1. Do you like Matzo Ball soup? I can't get into it. I don't understand the hype around it. If you like Matzo Ball soup will you please explain to me why?

Huh? what did you say?

I've probably needed a hearing aid for a while now. But having a boyfriend who talks like he's in a library all the time and keeps his TV volume at about 4 ( no, seriously...I can't even tell the volume is ON) and having to turn the radio up just to hear it is starting to wear thin.

My medical plan doesn't cover hearing aids.  What is the best way to go about finding a hearing aid from the bewildering choices out there?  Sheesh...I did a simple google search and was overwhelmed.

I know you are all young'uns, but can anyone recommend a hearing aid company?

This is hopeless, and I have no idea where to start. 

My family doesn't understand why I don't like talking on the phone and prefer text or email...

Inspired by a recent post...

If you are one of the people with a Tim Horton's in your city, is it a favorite coffee shop? 

Do you prefer Timmy's over Starbucks? or vice versa? 

There are 2 Tim Horten's and over 5 Starbucks' within a 3 block radius of my work place in Vancouver. Timmy's is cheaper but as an ex smoker I find the double double tastes like nicotine. Also, they fail at lattes. But I feel like a corporate whore at Starbucks.

Some guy has been calling my parents' house, asking for "Emily's mom or dad" (Emily is my 15 year-old sister). If we ask to take a message or ask him who he is, he hangs up. Tell me, TQC, who is this person and what does he want with my sister and our parents?!

Also. Do you tend to jump automatically to the worst possible scenerio in most situations? Like, when the guy above called yesterday my first thought was "Ohshit Emily's been kidnapped!" Then I called my mom and Em answered the phone, so it was all good. But I was still worried for several seconds! - Sunshine

Earlier this year, my friends and I decided to make up holidays/appointments to fill our friend J's otherwise dull calendar. Things like like "Eat a frozen pizza- 2pm" "Flip the bird day" "Furry Convention- 7 pm (Bring chains)" "Hug a tomato day" and "Collect From Hoes day," which fell on the 15th of every month. With tonight being NYE and whatnot, we thought it would be appropriate to buy him a 2009 calendar, and present it to him full of absurd holidays/appointments. Suggestions? The more ridiculous, the better.

Would you be confident that you'd be able to take care of all your usual shower business if you only had enough hot water to last for five minutes?

What exactly happens at a DUI check point? Do they breathalyze everyone? Just chat with you and see if you seem drunk (and if so, then breathalyze you)? What's the general procedure?

If I'm 18 and I have a single glass of champagne at about 10 or 11, and then drive home at 2, am I still fucked if they breathalyze me, or will it be gone by that point?

Anyone who knows about dogs...

Okay.  The mutation of the MDR1 gene in some dogs, including collies, border collies, austrailian shepherds and several other breeds causes over-sensitivity to many medications.

Does anyone know if this mutation is also present in any bloodline for pitbulls?  My dog was given acepronazine and one pill left a very hyper dog completely out of it for at least two days ... Which I would have summed up to be from blood loss after she had surgery, but six months later she had a similar reaction to a related sedative.

I'm having my other dog tested for the gene because she is half border collie and half aussie.. is it worth it to test a pit bull or is this gene not found in them?

Serious answers this time only please.

sci-fi vs. fantasy

i'm sure this debate has been had, but i'm having it out with a coworker over the difference between sci-fi and fantasy.
so what is it?

also, does anyone else specifically not read books geared to younger people?
my coworker is also angry that i won't read harry potter or twilight, etc., because they are geared to younger people and i want to read more adult stuff. i've read the first harry potter book and it was good, but it had something missing (adult themes) that made me disinterested in continuing the series.

The Law

Dear TQC,

I just read this:

"CINCINNATI – A 45-year-old paraplegic rammed his wheelchair into an officer, threw urine from his catheter bag a patrol car and spat at the officer, police said Sunday. Ralph Evegan was arrested on charges of assaulting a police officer, obstructing official business, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. "

Question: Have you ever been in trouble with the law? If so, for what?

Girls who wear everything AE, or Abercrombie, whatever - You know like the ripped jeans and AE shirt with the AE tank under it with the tiny AE sweatshirt and the AE flip flops


Girls who wear leggings as pants with a large T SHIRT that barely, if at all, covers their ass?


so i'm currently living in a suburb of buffalo, new york, and quite frankly i hate it here. my lease is up in july and im not sure what to do next.

my sister lives in Costa Rica and told me that i would have a free place to live, and a built in job at her boyfriend's bar.

have any of you lived in a foreign tropical country? what was it like? any advice?

if i dont end up going to costa rica i might move to florida.

I've been renting my home for 4+ years now and have been doing so through a property agency. I had never met the actual owner. Just a minute ago the doorbell rings and there is a gentleman and a young girl standing at our front door. He then informs me that he owns the house and wanted to show it to his daughter because she's never seen it before. He then says that he called Dana (our property manager) but couldn't get ahold of her. I was cordial but didn't invite them in (as I have never met this man before and don't typically like letting strange men and 13 years old girls into my house). He seemed to be hinting that he'd like to be invited it but I ignored it and was basically like "Oh ok! Nice to meet you!" when he said he was going to take a look at it from the outside. I walked into the kitchen and he kept asking me questions about the orange tree and my kitchen appliances (oven, stove etc). They finally walked away and probably walked around looking at my house for a few more minutes (I couldn't see them anymore). Basically, it freaked me out a tad. I don't like people dropping in and it felt weird. So TQC is it legal to just drop in on your tenants? Would you have felt odd after living in a home for 4+years, never meeting the owner, and then BAM here he is with his daughter on your doorstep on New Year's Eve? Do you think he thought I was snotty for not inviting him in (if it helps, I have a german shepherd who made her presence known.)

1. When you make spinach dip (or see it at parties, if you don't make it), do you cut all of the bread up into chunks or make it sort of a bread bowl and put the dip in the middle?

I slice all of the bread up. It seems that when you make the bread bowl, all the dip gets eaten but you have all kinds of bread left!

2. My husband and I love movies like Dogma and Saved! because they poke fun at the super religious people (we both grew up like that). Are there any other movies that are poking fun at religion like that?

I just bought tickets to LA to go visit my boyfriend. My flight leaves in four hours.

Do a lot of people travel on New Year's Eve? How early should I arrive at the airport? I checked out the TSA website, and it said security wait times shouldn't be more than four or five minutes, but then it also said, "Please note that your personal experience may differ due to weather, airport flight schedules, staffing conditions, holidays or special events."

3. Will you tell me a clean joke?

I apparently lived through the 20s.

Have you ever used/heard the phrase "the bee's knees" to mean that something is awesome?

I just used that phrase to describe something and got this look O_o followed by lots and lots and laughter.

In researching this question, I learned that "bees carry pollen back to the hive in sacks on their legs. It is tempting to explain this phrase as alluding to the concentrated goodness to be found around the bee's knee. In the 1920s it was fashionable to devise nonsense terms for excellence - 'the snake's hips', 'the kipper's knickers", 'the cat's pyjamas', 'the sardine's whiskers' etc. Of these, the bee's knees and the cat's pyjamas are the only ones that have stood the test of time."

Edit: are there other 1920s phrases that have worked themselves into your vocabulary? Share with the group.

One of my friends is studying in the UK. She sent me a text message. I recieved and replied, but she never got mine. Is this a problem on her part or mine? (I'm on a Virgin Mobile and she, an o2.)


Which party should I go to tonight?

My family from Texas is visiting and we went over to my cousin's house where they are staying last week and we were invited to celebrate New Year's with them. So my parents are going there and I was going to go with them, but my friend called to say she was having a birthday/new year's party tonight and was wondering if I wanted to go.

Pros of going to family:
I'll be with my parents.
If they die in an accident, I'll die too. (yeah slight anxiety disorder and it is a serious worry of mine about tonight and pretty much any other time they have to drive for more than half an hour.)

It will be boring.
It's an hour and a half away.
I will be forced to entertain my wild child cousin who wants to get trashed and I don't drink nor have much in common with her.

Pros of going to friend's:
It's five minutes away.
I'll be with friends.
Perhaps a midnight kiss?

Cons of going to friend's:
Ex-boyfriend will be there and I haven't seen or talked to him in over a year.

So I am drinking some p-mint schnapps tonight.  I usually just drink this straight but it ends up with me being hammered in a tiny amount of time.  I want to make this night last, so what mixed drink can I make out of peppermint schnapps?  I had heard chocolate milk/hot chocolate, but wouldn't the milk curdle or am I retarded?

I have some fresh pears, goat cheese, and walnuts. I am thinking about crushing and toasting the walnuts, spreading the goat cheese on slices of pear, covering them with the nuts, and baking for a short time, just enough to warm the cheese and make the pears slightly soft.

Will this be yummy or disastrous? Any modifications to suggest?

Hi people,
I live in Russia and we often call TVset "the zombificator" or "zombo-box", because we have a lot of shameless pro-soviet and chauvinistic propaganda. And of course, we have lots of stupid game shows, kind of "Wheel of Fortune".
