The previous question reminded me, obviously all the regulars know about the question mark rule, and generally it is enforced-pointed out when somebody forgets or neglects to use one, however I've noticed times (a post I made a couple of days ago in fact) where somebody may not have a question mark and it goes ignored or unnoticed. So, what do you think we can attribute this to?

I was thinking of ordering a book from Amazon second hand. I need for it to arrive at my house (in Sydney, Australia) within the month. I'm leaving home in February to start a course in another state, and need the book for the course. I really must have it before I start.

Do you think if I order now it will arrive within the month? Anyone have any horror stories / happy stories I should know about? I would of course choose the ultra-speedy sending option, but previous experience has taught me that this means nothing at all sometimes.

And now, a series of completely random questions;

1. Srs and non-srs; Why in all of the old DC comics did superheroes always wear short-shorts or manties (man panties) OVER their tights? Superman, Aquaman, Batman, etc, they all did it. Why? Wouldn't have that been uncomfortable?

2. Forget zombies, what if a horde of vampires, the type from 30 Days of Night, invaded your town? What would you do?

3. As an American, I always find it weird to hear Yankee slang coming out of a non-American mouth. (With the exception of Canada.) But knowing that our pop culture is everywhere, one must expect this.

With that said, are there any American phrases out there that are still American only? That is, only a fellow Yank would get it and understand it?

(The only one I can think of is "big old" which is a Southern expression.)

And for the non-Americans, what are some of your native slang sayings that not every Yank may know about? What do they mean?

Heeeellooo TQC.

I'm reading a roster of football players at a college and I know NOOOTHING about football. The roster has the players' names, heights, weights, etc. and then there is a column that says "Exp." and the player's "Exp." is either "1V", "2V", "3V", "RS", or "HS".

It is probably something really obvious, but I really am sports-clueless. Does anyone know what these abbreviations mean?

Tyler Durden says to you, "I want you to hit me as hard as you can". However, in this unusual twist, you are indeed Edward Norton, but his character Bruce Banner. After your condo blew up, you got really angry and turned into the Incredible Hulk. You're super huge, stronger than a herd of bull elephants and green. How do you respond to Tyler's demand?

I hit him as hard as I can. HULK SMASH!

I hit him, but I pull my punch. Just enough to maybe leave a massive bruise. HULK SWAT!

I refuse to punch him. HULK PACIFIST

In that scene of Fight Club, where Bruce Banner's boss finds the Rules of Fight Club in the copier and confronts him about it, Bruce isn't wearing a tie. Why not?

He lost it changing into the Hulk

In the end of the movie, Tyler Durden is beating on the Hulk. Who wins?

Dilemma, tqc.

I am supposed to work tomorrow from 1 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., and the other girl (and yes, there are only two of us) was supposed to work 7:00 A.M. to 1 p.m. I usually call her to make sure everything is okay with that, but she's kind of rude from time to time, so yesterday when I closed (at 4 p.m., cause of NYD and all), I didn't call her. I proceeded to come home, and take a Unisom, which knocked me out at 7 p.m.

At 9:56 p.m., she called my cellphone, and left a message saying that she's "99% sure" that I work in the morning and she works in the afternoon, but to please call her back at home to confirm that, because her cell is dead.

Well, as you might be able to tell, it's now 4:35 in the morning, cause I sleep like the dead when I'm on Unisom, thank God. So obviously, I can't just call her house and be like mmm nope sorry bitch, you work (well, I could, but that would be rude to everyone else living there).


So, since she's "99% sure" that I work in the morning and she doesn't, should I just go ahead and go in at 7:00?

This wouldn't be such a huge deal, but it's an hour drive for me :\

TQC,

I am currently sitting in the front of the office covering the receptionist’s desk today and I am listening to my boss talk endlessly about how “magical” her Christmas was in Washington State to every single person who walks by her office (it’s been 5 times I’ve heard the story and she’s only been here for 20 minutes!). I feel like filling her office up with a million cheesy poofs because her new year’s resolution is to be healthy and lose weight.

How do you know when you're ready to have your first pet?

I know this sounds dumb but I do not want to be a stupid pet owner. I've been wanting a cat for such a long time but it seems like having the minimum requirements of living on my own in a place that allows cats and having enough money to take care of the cat just don't cut it. I'm really afraid to get a pet because I'm afraid of making a 10-20 year commitment to another living being. At the same time, lots of other people do it successfully, but my parents have dogs that they simply refuse to train AT ALL (they don't know how to sit, they wake my parents up fifty times a night to go outside but they're not even housetrained, etc.) and I'm scared that I just won't know what to do with a pet of my own.

So we're thinking about adopting a dog. I've had dogs all my life, so I'm well aware of how much work you have to put into a dog.

How difficult was it for you, going through a shelter? Looking at the application online, it seems like it's full of questions designed to trip you up/make it easy for them to reject you.

Is it okay to be really specific? Would the shelter immediately reject us if I said I was looking for a female dog, 25lbs or less, preferably already housebroken? (Our apartment only allows for "25lbs or less of pet")

Dislocated knee - fine by the next day.
Finger - fractured on joint (chips of bone missing), in a splint, and still swollen.

My question is, where did the chips of bone go?? The doctor pointed out on the x-ray where they were chipped off, but I didn't see the actual pieces floating around and was in too much pain to really think about it until I got home. Plus I couldn't understand his accent, and he didn't know what hockey was anyway.

TQC,

I need to establish a small network (12 drops, total, and several are already wired.) at the place I work. It's going to be in two major nodes, basically the front and back of a single-story warehouse building I know... very little about networking. We have a secure wireless source of internet that I'm gonna run through a router/switch and split into the various drops.

What precautions do I need to take with running the cables?
Any guides y'all can recommend?
Inexpensive yet good-quality switches/routers?

thanks for any help.

1. Do you like the color pink?

Not really. I love fuschia when done right though.

2. How did you feel about pink as a young one?

I honestly didn't have a gut reaction. I went through phases of liking color until I setteled on purple (color of royalty, close enough to pink but far enough to be it's own color) in grade school.

3. How do you feel about the color pink now? Or when you wear it?
I hate the paler shades until hot pink. Hot pink  is when it gets weird on me though- I like the color, and sometimes pink/purple is such a blur that it's hard to decide what color it is, so usually I end up wearing it. I avoid pink in make up and nail polish (brunette with pale ukranian skin).

4. What colors do you have in your wardrobe?
Black, purple, blue. A lot of bruise colors on second though.

On the one hand, it seemed stupid to include this in the canon for that reason, but on the other hand, people will accept any reinterpretation in religious texts and end times prophecies scare people, allowing you to control them.

ex: I always feed my cat before I eat, make sure he's in the house before I settle down at night, etc. If he had a medical need, I would attend to that before fulfilling my wants. I do it out of courtesy because he is reliant on me for his wellbeing, and I love him.

Should I buy a Slanket?

I saw them advertised in a magazine and it looks like a massive dressing gown. Is it worth paying £30 for what is essentially a massive dressing gown? I do read a lot in my living room which is a tad cold and already have a blanket for that. However, it's cold when I need to get up :(

TQC, I was accepted as a transfer nursing student on December 23rd. The head of nursing called me and said they sent out my acceptance packet that day. I have yet to receive it, so I called admissions and they said they didn't send it, they'd fax it to me on Monday. Classes start January 12th and I'm 1,200 miles away.

When do colleges usually expect payment for the semester?
I haven't been able to take out loans because I am not aware of exactly how much I need for this semester so I'm worried. D:

Do you think my school will give me an extension because they accepted me so late, or should I start looking into taking classes at a community college as back up?
It doesn't make sense to me that they would accept me so early and expect payment right away, but my dad insists the school doesn't care and to look into community college.

So I've always had elbows that could bend backwards and wrists that could rotate 360 degrees...but more recently I have been noticing that I am way more flexible than I was before. I can get my legs behind my head, touch my palms to the floor and bend backwards so far I can almost get into the crab position. Now I know this isn't because I've only just tried these things, as I've tried to perform these weird contortionist moves before with no success. But suddenly, over the past six months, my joints are now super flexible. Why? I looked up on Google but it wasn't very helpful :-(. Yeah, so help me out guys. I'm not complaining as such (let's just say those flexible moves have their benefits) just curious. thanks!

Someone is outside whistling a tune fairly loud.  It's the same tune over and over.  He's good and it sounds nice and calming but why do you think he's whistling so loud and for so long and whistling the same tune over and over?  This has been going on for over 15 minutes (which is a long time for whistling imo).

How weirded out do you think he would be if I went out and started whistling with him? 

ETA:  Never mind.  I went outside to see who it was and no one was there.  I asked my husband if he heard it too and he said that someone in the house is watching the Filipino channel.

I realized a funny thing today.
Lewis Carroll died on December 13, 1901
C. S. Lewis was born on December 13, 1901

I don't like either of their books (I don't know why, they are popular books, there's just some weird impatience while reading their books).

I am usually OK with the genres they write, used to read books like that all the time when I was younger. And I can read almost anything and enjoy it, I'm most patient reading books.

Isn't that totally weird? Why IS that?

B. How I Met Your Mother Season 3 ($14.99)

I've already seen both, and obviously, they're both awesome. I'd like to limit my spending (I'm already getting two other items), so I'm only going to get one for now. I have HIMYM Seasons 1 and 2, and after I finish my apps, I'd love to have a marathon with my brother, and I feel like I need to complete my collection, but the extras on the Dr. Horrible DVD (along with the low price, but then again HIMYM is incredibly cheap for a series DVD) make it enticing.

Are there any local stores where the customer service is awful but it's the only one nearby so you go anyway?
Will you tell us about how mean the employees are?
(This reminds me of Vag's post about the pharmacy!)

We have an independent music store where they always comment about your purchases. It's so intimidating to go up there with the used Beaches soundtrack. There's also a bookstore nearby where I recently asked if they had "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and they laughed at me as I walked away. boooo!

What's something factually incorrect that you've encountered on Wikipedia? Bonus points if it's humorous.

Will you post a song (or group) that you think deserves way more credit than it/ they get(s) and see how many people actually do know the song or how many people you bless anew with that song? (You can do this with lyrics, video or just title and artist.)

(So that means if you recognize/ know the song, say so. And if you don't know the song and you like it, say so.)

Do you overshare when people ask you things?

I notice I do that a LOT here. A few questions down is a question about chat clients and I launched into a story about an exboyfriend.

Do you have any unhealthy obsessions? I don't mean like "lol, I have an unhealthy obsession with Hello Kitty teehee" but like an actual, unhealthy obsession.

I have a friend who has a crazy obsession with death and dying. :(
