How often are you drunk or otherwise impaired (whipped cream in a can, Benadryl, large pan to the head) and think, "Wow, I just thought of a really cool question for thequestionclub," but later forget it and remember only the thought of it?

If you actually remembered it, what kind of a question was it?

eta: this is a question that I thought of, knew I wouldn't remember, and typed up before I could forget it!

Can someone recommend anything that will make my boyfriend stop snoring?

Its gotten to the point where, if I don't fall asleep first, I end up getting up and sleeping on the couch. *cries*

I'd like to know if anyone has tried any of those stop snoring gimmicks and if any of them actually worked before I go out and spend money on something that won't work.

Also, his snoring is HORRIBLE, to the point that sometimes it sounds like he stops breathing and it scares the shit out of me!
This is so ridiculous.

Hello expert immigration lawyers of TQC:

Let's say you're trying to get someone into the United States LEGALLY on a work visa/residency whatever. He's a doctor, he's your fiance (or your husband, if you're in Panama, where you've gotten married), he's a government employee of his home country (let's say...Panama), he has a ten year tourist visa to the states that he's never abused, he has a bank account with a savings, and he speaks some English. WOULD he be negatively affected by the fact that his dumbass brother tried to sneak into the states, got caught and detained, but left of his own accord?


Alternatively, can you tell me a fun/successful immigration story that will make me feel better about this process? The situation isn't exactly hypothetical D: D: D:

1. I was at work last Thursday and this woman brought two of her pets in, and her two kids tagged along. After the appointment, I made a candid reference to Thomas the Tank Engine (her kid was playing with Percy) and she was like oh you have kids? and I told her no, I babysit a lot, and she asked for my name and number, which I provided, cause I need a little extra dinero, you know? Well, she called me tonight, and asked if I was available this weekend, which I'm not, but mentioned that she was actually going to see if I could spend the night so she and her husband could have a real, kid-free date.

Would you find this odd, considering she didn't know me from Eve?


2. What is something you've done recently that has made you proud?

It took almost an hour and a half today at work but I managed to get in contact with the right department of the Dept. of Agriculture to get a dirty shelter inspected/possibly shut down. We've had two cases of Parvovirus from them in the past week alone, and almost 10 cases in the past year.

Hi TQC,
I just had a really fucked up breakup that makes me never want to fall in love again. I want to curl up into a ball and wish the world would go away, but unfortunately I have a paper due tomorrow that I have to force myself to finish. So in the mean time, will you tell me a few good things about being single? What do you do to get your spirits up again? Should I drink myself into oblivion after I hand in my paper tomorrow?

Dear Dr. LJ,

Offensive, hysterical, both, neither?


Personally, I thought that it was in such bad taste that I figured it was fake at first. I find it incredibly offensive and I'll be avoiding Nike products like the plague in the future. "Raise a champ", Nike? I should be very proud to raise a son who is tough enough for ballet, TYVM.


EDIT: This just in! Apparently, evidence points towards that this ad is actually a student entry in CMYK magazine. Not that it makes the concept matter itself any less offensive to me, but at least I now know why it could 'slip under the radar' and get published.

Calories-burned calculators

Does anyone know of a calories-burned calculator that also uses sex to determine how many you burn? I just went to caloriesperhour.com and it said I burn 983 calories in 8 hours at a desk job and I am like "they must think I'm a man, baby." I read that you only burn about 60 calories per hour at rest, and a desk job is pretty at-rest, if you ask me.

For those who don't give a hoot about that, what are you making/eating for dinner tonight?

ETA: I mean sex as a gender, sorry.

you guys, drinking makes me absolutely RAVENOUS. does this happen to anyone else? it's like i have the munchies but i'm not high and it's really weird. this has happened the last three times i've been drunk/tipsy.
Eduard Hill smile

Burn, baby, burn!

TLDR
Ok, so I totally just had Karma bitchslap me! There I was, innocently bitching about friends and family (only the deserved, mind) when two hot coals fell to the floor.

I jump up to grab them before damage occurs, and stupidly step on one. It burns right through my sock within seconds, barbecuing my left foot underneath. I rip off the sock to stop further agony, but the coal is stuck to it, and as I grab it... I manage to burn the side of my left hand.

I now can't stand on my left leg, and can't move my left hand very well!
/TLDR


Questions

1. When was the last time Karma bitchslapped you? SRS AND NON! Anything for lols.

2. My creator was kind enough to gift me with a currently, fully functioning, right hand and right leg. Can you suggest some things I can do with these two appendages? Bonus points if it doesn't include any sort of masturbation.

One of my acquaintances told me I could have my birthday party at his place since my place isn't big enough. He mentioned it several times and got permission from his s/o and everything. But he was hesitant about giving me his phone number and now when I've tried to contact him he won't respond. Would you be angry in this situation or would you think it was too high of an expectation for someone to come through with something like this?

My friends are absolutely notorious for doing stuff like this, so I guess I should have expected it.

I HATE TV

Is anyone here anti-TV? 

My roommates are. I'm not anti-TV as I like to watch documentaries off my computer on a nicer screen but I am anti-TV shows and cable.
When my boyfriend moved in he brought his TV. First one in this house since my roommate has had it. While my boyfriend is also anti-TV shows/cable he plays video games on it from time to time. So....it's usually sporting the big blue screen as we have no channels....

My roommate said he wants it out of the living room and none of us blame him but now I have this really ugly TV in my room which is something I never wanted!

How can I disguise it when it's not in use, which is most of the time???? It's one of those flat ones....if it wasn't I throw some pretty fabric over it and use it like a shelf but that isn't going to work in this case.

Are you anti anything? 

Should I go get my errands done, go to the park for a frozen walk (needs my exercise) or start my laundry?

those of you with macs...
i am panicking so much right now. help?!

last night i charged my macbook as usual (i let it charge full, take it out then run it until it sleeps.) etc etc, no problems. i was on it all night until it died, so this morning i came to charge it and it won't. the icon says "(Not Charging)" with the fork sign and the light on the charger itself is green. when i take the charger out, my macbook dies/goes to sleep.

i've had my mac about a year. no problems until now... so what do i do?! do i need a new charger? oh shit. they're £60 and i really can't afford that for another month! right now my mac is running on the battery that is plugged in and says not charging. will it stay on if i keep the charger in or will it just die at a random time?

If you have lived or currently live with your SO:

1. How long were you dating before you talked about moving in together?
2. How long were you dating before you actually did?
3. Were you dating, engaged, or married when you finally moved in?
4. How did it work out for you?
5. How old are you?

If you are in a relationship and eventually want to move in with your SO:

1. At what point are you waiting to move in together? (i.e. live in the same area, graduation, engagement, etc.)
2. Have you talked about it, or is it just an assumption?
3. How old are you?

If you aren't in a relationship:

1. At what point do you think it's appropriate for a couple to move in together?
2. How old are you?

What's your favorite bread?

Rye for most deli-style sandwiches; wheat for toast, peanut butter, or grilled cheese. When I'm somewhere like Panera, the focaccia is my favorite.

What's your ideal sandwich?

Turkey or chicken breast on rye with aged cheddar or gouda, lettuce, red onions, spicy mustard, and mayonnaise.

Do you prefer to build your own sandwiches at home, or do you prefer to go to delis that put them together for you?

As long as I have all of my condiments of choice at home, I'd rather build my own. I'm picky about how my sandwiches are put together and how much of each item is used.

Pointless questions

1. You're in a restaurant and decide to fill out one of those assessment cards. You're at the end, where it asks for comments, when suddenly, the zombie uprising occurs, and the walking dead shamble into the restaurant, attacking the living. People are screaming and running for their lives.

Q: What comment do you leave?

2. You're about to parachute out of a plane. You pop in a stick of gum, adjust your goggles, and hop out. The velocity is intense and you are soaring to earth at over 100mph. You pull the ripcord, and it comes off in your hand, torn off the backpack. You reach for the reserve, only to find that whoever packed the chute, packed the handle into the pack itself, for you can't seem to find it. As the ground starts to get closer, you panic.

Q: What flavor gum are you chewing on?

3. You're on a first date with someone you've had a crush on for a while. You go to the movies and you're in the back. Halfway through the movie, your date kisses you. You kiss back. It heats up, and you put the popcorn down on an empty seat, so you can make out. It gets intense. Your date unbuttons your pants and fiddles around. You've never been so aroused. You moan pleasurably in your date's ear, as you're being stimulated. Luckily, it's an action movie and no one can hear you. Your breathing becomes labored, as you near sexual culmination. It's such an exhilerating feeling...

Q: Does your popcorn have butter on it, and what size is the box?

4. You're on the Titanic, when the ship hits the iceberg. People push and shove, trying to load onto the lifeboats, but it's evident there's not enough space. You're one of the people left behind. The ship lists to the right, and everybody loses their balance. The man next to you falls over the side, and he dangles from the railing. You see the fear in his eyes, and you attempt to pull him back up. You try and get a good grip, but it's just so cold. Your fingers can't fully hold on, and he falls into the darkness. You see his anguish-stricken face as it fades away. You feel terrible. The ship is submerging. The end is near

Textbooks. OH god the horror!

Anyway, I'm trying to find myself the best deals on my books. I rented last semester's books from chegg.com, which was nice and all. But I would rather they were mine so I didn't have to worry about dropping them, spilling stuff on them, highlighting, and writing on them. So I decided this semester I'm just going to buy books again. I start classes in a week so I'm trying to find my books now so I can have them for class.

So I know the basics amazon.com and half.com. What are other good sites to try to buy used textbooks on?

Hallo TQC. Two questions!

1) I have been sleeping a LOT lately. Like 12-13 hours a day. I'm not depressed and I don't think I'm sick (I have no other symptoms), and it's not the kind of sleep where you feel gross when you wake up, it's the kind of sleep where you feel like your body needed it. But it's been EVERY daaay, and it's starting to bug me because I have a crapload of work to do and I can't do it if I'm only awake like 11 hours a day!!! Has this ever happened to anyone? Is there some weird virus that might be making me sleep a lot? Has my body been possessed by really sleepy aliens?

2) I live like 2 hours from DC, and I'm considering driving down there for the inauguration on Tuesday but I don't have tickets. I've heard estimates of between 1.5-3 million people, so I don't know if it's even worth it to go (the Phillies parade in October was less than that and there was NOOOO visibility). What do you think? Is anyone here going? Is it worth it without tickets?

So, I've recently noticed that I suffer from pretty bad performance nerves.  I never get emotionally or mentally worked up, but I get really shaky and warm, and my stomach hurts.  It's only the physical symptoms.  I don't know why at all - I absolutely love performing, and I'm always pretty confident that I won't mess up.  It's also only when I'm performing completely by myself, in front of a crowd - even if I'm in front of people all of whom I know, as has been the case.  While I'm performing, I'm not afraid I'll mess up, I'm just shaky and nauseated, and it really undermines my performance!  Anyway, I'm auditioning for a lead in a musical this week and I really need to get over this!  Can you help me, Dr. TQC?

"Frosty we need u me and craig we're out of cigs and dying we need ur body and car" -- it was from my friend Zak, because he's a creeper like that, and is out of a car at the moment. :/

I've got my new choices down to two, either a '99 Jeep Cherokee with 136k miles on it, or an '03 Hyundai Elantra with about 82k on it. They're about the same price, and I like them both, however, the Jeep obviously handles far better in the snow, and since I'll be moving to Montana in August, that'll be a big help, but OTOH, the gas mileage is utter shit. So, TQC, which car should I get?

Do you drink any of the vitamin type waters? (Glaceau Vitamin Water, Sobe LifeWater)

If so, what is your favorite brand/flavor??

How much water do you drink on average a day?

Are you normally a thirsty person (always have to have a bottle of water or some liquid handy to quench your never ending thirst) or are you more of a camel (hardly ever thirsty)??

I have a shirt that says "I <3 chocolate" and it has an actual chocolate stain on it.

My sister has the same shirt that says "I <3 chocolate" and hers happens to have a chocolate stain on it too.

My daughter has a shirt with popsicles on it, and it has a popsicle stain on it.

WTF TQC? have you ever had a food themed shirt with the appropriate food stain on it?

(None of our other clothes have stains on them, so we're not just overall dirty people, ftr.)

Do people who eat noisly (smacking, chewing, burping while they eat, other noises) just ANNOY THE HOLY FUCKING SHIT OUT OF YOU?

Do you find it rude?

What's your biggest pet peeve?

I seriously cannot fucking stand it. I'm on one end of the house and my friend who is on the other end must be eating something frozen and he's SMACKING SO FUCKING LOUD that i can hear it from this side of the house OVER 2 TVs on high volume and iTunes going. Loud eating is right up there with my hatred of snoring.

Ladies, what are you experiences of buying bras internationally? Are sizes really that different? I've looked at some converters, and while the UK and Australia are the same, the US sizing seems to be quite a bit different. I have a very large cup size (12K/34K Aus/UK size) and I don't want to buy something thinking it is the right size only to find out that is too big or small.

Britney Spears has a track called 'If U Seek Amy' that some radio stations want to censor. Do you get it? (Someone had to explain this to me because I did not get it at all.)

Will you tell me about the biggest bullshit artist you've ever met?

Right now I have this coworker who is charming the pants off my boss because he claims to be from the Netherlands. However, he's speaking with an Irish accent that he seems to use off and on. When my boss sat a couple who said they were from the exact town he claimed to be from, he couldn't speak enough Dutch to converse with them when they tried. Seriously, he is the biggest fucking douchebag ever. And I have to work with him. The end.

Is there a way in which to express total alcohol, apart from referencing the percent by volume?

For example say you had 2 beers (each 5% by volume) and 3 wine coolers (3% by volume each), how much total alcohol would you have? Or would you have to settle for averaging the two and expressing it by volume?


Solved!


If you have no idea what I'm trying to say, how gross is the above pairing of beer and wine coolers? Beer before liquor, never been sicker, beer before wine coolers.... you're kind of a loser! :)

So one of my jobs entails reserving tickets for people. A woman just called and we had this exchange:

me: "can I get your name?"
woman: "yes, it's Honor, spelled A-N-N-E."
me: "..."
me: "Sorry, what was your first name again?"
woman: "Honor, A-N-N-E."


Has anyone ever heard of anyone named Honor who spelt it like Anne?

Setting output device in iTunes

How do I get iTunes to output to a specifc output device, instead of to whatever's set as the default in windows? As in, I have USB headphones connected to the PC and want them to be the default device, but I want iTunes to always output to the speakers.

I return with another food-related question:

I had a few spoonfuls today (probably no more than three, and it's plastic-spoon sized) of some yogurt that had a sell-by date of December 30. The container specifically said that it was good for 7 days beyond the sell-by date. I feel kind of...off, but I think it's more paranoia on my part than anything. I ate lunch around 12:30, 1pm today if that makes a difference.

Would food poisoning be something I should seriously consider/brace myself for, or am I just being super-paranoid and silly? Like I said, since it was so little I think I'm just freaking myself out, but idk. I have some wicked gas, though.


Should I make my boyfriend come over and keep me company until my roommate gets home? I'm freaking myself out, I don't like being home alone, and I kind of need someone to calm me down. I made tea, since it usually calms me down, but I'm so freaked out over this yogurt thing that I don't want to ingest anything else. I haven't eaten since then. The BF would leave in about 2 hours, and I dunno when my roomie will be home.


Help, TQC! What are my chances and what should I do?

MPLS TQCers!!!

I am going to be moving to Edina on Friday to stay with one of my friends. Please give suggestions of ANYTHING that would be fun/interesting etc. Whether it's entertainment or food (!!!) or whatever your clever minds can think of. I know I can go to metromix.com, but I would like to hear what y'all have to say.

Ontological Argument

Alvin Plantinga has given another descriptive, initial version of the argument, one where the conclusion follows from the premises, assuming axiom S5 of modal logic. A version of his argument is as follows[26]:

1. It is proposed that a being has maximal excellence in a given possible world W if and only if it is omnipotent, omniscient and wholly good in W; and
2. It is proposed that a being has maximal greatness if it has maximal excellence in every possible world.
3. Maximal greatness is possibly exemplified. That is, it is possible that there be a being that has maximal greatness. (Premise)
4. Therefore, possibly it is necessarily true that an omniscient, omnipotent and perfectly good being exists.
5. Therefore, it is necessarily true that an omniscient, omnipotent and perfectly good being exists. (By S5)
6. Therefore, an omniscient, omnipotent and perfectly good being exists.



How is maximal greatness exemplified?

To those of you who draw/paint: what do you do with your finished stuff? I have a ton of paintings sitting at the bottom of my closet and drawings rolled up on my dresser (I know! Not supposed to roll 'em!)

Where do you keep your art supplies? What do you keep them in?

What do you call your parents?
(I'm watching tv and the 18 year old girl just called her dad "Daddy")
meeeeeeeeee

*sigh*

I can't get this girl
off my mind. Don't worry I know her in person.

And, while I can't quite see her ever going for me (and she's a little fucked in the head but nothing like my ex), I wouldn't mind dating her (that didn't come out well but I trust you all get it). Hell,I'm not even sure if she's single.

So, my fellow TQCers, lend me your ears, how can I work up the cajones to a) find out if she's single an then b) see if she wants to go on a date with me?

ETA- removed the pic. Happy?

ETA2- replaced the brackets so many of you seem to find offensive (happy?).

Why is each new season of American Idol more painful to watch than  the last?

Why do I put myself through this crap every year?

Must I remind myself that I don't particularly like the show, or most of the contestants on it?
