Does anyone want to give me $100? ~~Okay you snobby bumkins! I wasn't serious! Don't jump on me! Do you think people honestly believe that strangers on the internet will just HAND you $100?!~~
I'm in a jam....I have three bills coming in. I already took a checking account advance which is also going to get paid at the same time as those three bills (This is all already set up online and it is too late for me to change any of it!). I get paid on Tuesday and that is what is covering...most of that. I'm just ....$100 short! I don't know how to cover it...because I already took the checking account advance and that is being paid back with the paycheck! Any bright ideas on how to fix this? Thanks~!
When was the last time you did something stupid like schedule all your bills to pay on payday then come to find out that your check isn't enough to cover it?
I really miss being in school and would like to eventually go back and blah blah blah. Through my job I have the opportunity to take any course I want through the local university. It's an opportunity that I'd like to take (and my only opportunity to take it), but I'm having issues with concentration right now and none of the classes look super appealing to me, although I can imagine myself enjoying a few of them. Should I take one anyway? The credit wouldn't mean anything and a lot of the classes only have lectures once a week. I just don't know if I'm in the mood to crack textbooks and right papers right now.
What's your opinion of breast feeding in public? I'm talking baseball games, department store benches, malls, airports, benches in parks. And I'm not talking private family rooms that many facities provide, i'm talking out in the middle of wherever.
What about pictures of breast feeding on facebook? Does it break facebook's private policies or are they over reacting?

1.) With this economy, do you think a college student with only babysitting and math tutoring experience could find work for 40 or more hours/week? I'll take only 1 class during spring quarter so I can work full time to save up for college.
2.) Where's the best place for someone like this to work to get the most money? I'm in desperate need of money for college.
Thanks a lot!
When you get home from somewhere...do you leave your coat on?
I've been home for at least a half hour and I still have my coat on. I tend to do this a lot...to the point where people always ask me if I'm leaving. hah
What do you do when you get home fairly late but don't even feel like thinking about sleep?
I just sat through The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (holy fuck it was long)
Should I watch another movie now?

Will you explain to me, in detail, if you can, the most traumatic experience of your life?
Nothing traumatic has ever happened to me
an old harddrive in an enclosure
a laptop full of viruses(getting it fixed, everything is backed up, no worries).
BUT I REALLY WANT TO WATCH BLACK BOOKS which is all in the enclosure.
is it safe to hook it up and put it on the laptop so i can watch it or should i leave it be?
Are some people just cursed to always have issues with their computer?
If TQC were a financial planner, how would it suggest you invest your money?
What kind of toothpaste do you use?
How do you feel about circumcision....specifically done to baby boys soon after birth?
Do you think it's beneficial at all or mostly traditional?
If you ever were to have a baby boy would you have him circumcised?
If you are a male and don't mind answering....are you circumcised?
I know they don't give pain relief to the babies and even though they don't remember it bothers me. On the other hand apparently it's easier to keep clean and avoid infections without the foreskin.
My ultrasound hinted that it may be a boy...
Does anyone have any pre-hangover cures?
I'm pretty sure that I'm gonna be spending tomorrow bent over the toilet seat vomiting [because I throw up like fuckery when I'm hungover] so can anyone suggest anything I could do right now to avoid that OTHER than "drink loads of water"?
I'm supposed to go to my dad's tomorrow and I'd rather visit him WELL as opposed to vomiting. If I'm hungover, I usually vomit basically all day.

Do you agree with this genre definition?
To non-American TQCers, as an American, I've heard all about Yankee stereotypes. That we are stupid, trigger happy and loud.
But what about you, what are the stereotypes of your country? (Oh, by the way, which country are you from?) Is there any truth to those stereotypes?
What's the strangest stereotype that you've heard of? (It may or may not be related to your country.)
To my fellow Americans, what are the stereotypes of your region? Again, is there any truth to them?
Like, for example, I am from the South. Southern hospitality is not exactly true. People here can be seriously mean. Especially if you don't fit the Southerner mold. On the upside, the mean things they do say are told in Southern wit and are so charming, half the time you don't even realize you are being insulted. Bless your heart.
Do normal people use condoms? This is important.

In the movie "Junior" who, in your opinion, was the better of the characters, Arnold Schwarzenegger or Danny De Vito?
I'm starving. Like, been laying in bed listening to my stomach rumble for over two hours starving. I can't sleep, despite my taking two sleeping pills with wine. Do I wake up my husband and ask him if he wants to go get a cressandwich or mcbiscuit or something or eat something here and already paid for like my granola cereal? Or do I just try harder to go to sleep and ignore my loud, inconsiderate stomach?
For the record, when a friend and I were counting down the hours till breakfast one day, my husband demanded to be woken up to enjoy the spoils. However, he also sleepily and begrudgingly ate the food he asked for. So he could probably go either way, if it matters to you.

I'm making my class schedule for the spring semester, and I'm in a bit of a pickle. As of now I'm planning to be on campus from either 9:30am or 11:00am until 6:15pm. If I start at 9:30, I'd be able to have a break somewhere in the middle of my classes, but if I start at 11 I'll get to sleep later and go to campus later.

Could anybody give me some names which you use for a psychiatric hospital in your city/location?
For example, I live in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, and we often use euphemisms like "the yellow house" or "house on the Prazhka river" instead of "a psychiatric hospital".
So I need some examples of similar euphemisms/synecdoches. Thanks in advance.

What do you think of Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor?
Personally, I don't get the whole "He's so young! He's only 26!" He actually looks around the same age as Tennant. Plus, he has spirit fingers. You can never go wrong with a Doctor who has spirit fingers.

So, I finally got a harddrive with enough space to put all my music on it and hide my cds away. I've basically been ripping non-stop since yesterday.
I was ripping them in my DVD burner drive since it rips faster than my CD drive. And then all of a sudden, it was ripping at, like, 0.4X speed. For every CD.
Did I kill my burner?
(I have since switched to my CD drive. WIll I kill it too?)

When you were in high school and had study hall, did you ever get stuck with the younger kids?
Yes. Last year, when I was a senior, I got stuck with the eighth graders. Worst study hall ever. They didn't listen to the teacher, they wouldn't shut up, and were really bad. Really, really annoying. I was never more glad to graduate. I barely handled the nine weeks I was in that study hall.

My flatmate and I discovered we only had one mailbox key between the two of us. I was keeping it in the kitchen, which is about ten steps away from the mailbox. He told me it was "too difficult" to keep the mailbox key inside instead of with him, so he took it, and now I have no way to check the mail, and he's never around.
Why did he think a good solution was to ban me from being able to access the mailbox ever?

I am reviving my quote book (a book of quotes I like/find interesting). Right now, it's in an old, ratty notebook that is ready to fall apart. When I buy a new one, should I go for a spiral notebook or a composition notebook?
Currently, I'm writing quotes in with a purple pen. Should I continue with the purple, or mix some red, black, blue, and green in there?

My mom just bought me a sandwich maker and a crock pot, since I am a poor college student.
I've never owned either of these things before, so I thought I'd ask the people of TQC for their favourite recipes for these two appliances.
