1.if you were flexible enough, would you go down on yourself?

and follow up question to anyone who's response was "no, that's too much like giving another guy a blowjob" (or whatever the female equivalent is)
2.does that mean that masturbating manually is like giving another guy a handjob?

time travel ahoy!

Because Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure was on today;

1. If you had a history speech to give to the entire high school and were able to bring back anyone from Human civilization to talk for you, who would you bring and why?

2. I know I have already asked who would you travel with, but forget about them, what time machine would you want for your own;

a. TARDIS (Sorry, the spaceship part is broken and the Doctor's sonic screwdriver is on the fritz. You can only travel through time.)
b. The DeLorean from Back to the Future (yes, the hover one from II)
c. Bill & Ted's phonebooth
d. Doc's steampunk locomotive from Back to the Future III
e. Or screw machines, I'll travel in time by swapping bodies like Sam did in "Quantum Leap"
f. Or screw "Quantum Leap", I want a time traveling island like in "LOST" Beat that, chumps!

3. Besides the one in H.G. Well's Time Machine, am I missing any other pop culture time machines? The Enterprise doesn't count since it wasn't built for that purpose.

Avon

So last night I saw a commercial advertising "Does the economy suck? Do you need extra money? Be an Avon Lady!"

Do you know anyone who sells Avon?

Do you know anyone who actually buys anything from The Avon Lady?

If the answer to #2 is "I do!", what sort of things do you buy?

I have the mental image of someone driving to the grocery store, seeing "~Avon~" stickers on a car, running and frantically hunting down The Avon Lady in the store to order face cream. If this isn't what actually happens, please don't tell me. I like my fantasies.

question one: is there a way you wish you could live, either now or when you were a child, that is literally impossible?

i'm not talking about having riches like JLo and rollin' like Diddy, i mean like physically impossible. like, i wish i could live in a shower. just somehow be able to walk around with hot water always falling over me, or wheel myself around in a hot tub or something.

question number two:

so i just saw this "ad" on the sidebar thing on facebook.

what the hell kind of ad is that? is that even ad? it's still up, do i dare click it? it really bummed me out 'cause it's a picture of a beagle or at least a beagle mix and i have a beagle, too :(

Relationship Dr. Tee Cue Sea,

My boyfriend goes to school 3 hours from where I live. I would like to go visit him on the weekends when neither of us have plans, since it's kind of shitty for him to have to drive 6 hours round trip every time we want to see each other instead of us splitting it. However, his ex who goes to school with him is a fucking psycho and flips shit every time he even TALKS to another girl. She found out that he has a girlfriend, and is being super crazy.

Without making his life miserable (which she will do) or going to jail (because apparently she'll start something, and I am definitely bigger than she is), what can be done to make this situation better?

So if you're stopped in the middle of an intersection and a cop pulls you over....is that considered a moving violation even though you technically weren't moving?

My girlfriend did that last month and she is going to court for it tomorrow. She said she is going to take defensive driving for it but I was wondering if it is considered a moving violation. Just wanted to stay informed.

There was a lot of traffic and it was backed up all the way to the intersection. She said the light was still green on her end so she figured the traffic would move up a bit. But the light turned red and she was still sitting in the intersection behind another car.

I took my dog to have some teeth removed yesterday, and when I went to pick her up, they gave me her medicine, and a little vial with her teeth in it. Why did they do this? Would you want to keep your dogs teeth? Why?

I'm keeping them, not really sure why. I have one of her baby teeth I found on the carpet too.

Stiff Neck...

Other than

a) Massage Therapy
b) Taking so many drugs you don't care any more (legal painkiller or otherwise)

Is there any way you can cope with or relieve a stiff neck?

My neck and my upper back/shoulder area is store and stiff as fuck and it's driving me nuts.

I just went to get lunch, and when I opened my fridge I saw that my dad had chilled a small bottle of white zinfandel that was given to me as a favor at my BFF's wedding. Considering I don't drink white zin, and neither does he, I'm assuming it was from NYE when he bought a bunch to woo his latest conquest over dinner. This is the second time my dad has taken my wine for this purpose. I'm torn between being annoyed and amused. Which would you be?

If you showed up to dinner on NYE with your latest fling and he popped out a bottle of white zin from NJ, with the label 'ALL OUR THANKS AND LOVE, BFF & HUBBY, 2007,' would you be suitably impressed?

i'm hungry but NOTHING looks appetizing. does this ever happen to you? what do you do?

let's say you have a sister that calls you exactly once a week, without fail. one week, she doesn't call you. she doesn't call you the week after, either. how many weeks would you wait until you called the police because you thought she was missing? i'm watching a true crime show, and the other sister waited two months before she called. that seems a little long to me!

eta: the lady in the show did try calling her sister but couldn't get a hold of her.

I was hungry. Not much in the house looked good to me. I was alone. I saw a box of quick-cooking oatmeal. (Are you with me so far? And did you know that in 1977 I achieved quite good scores on my SATs, ranking in the 99th percentile?)

I put 1 3/4 cup (14 oz.) of water in a pot, and put it on the stove to boil. I started looking around for goodies to add to the oatmeal to make it yummier.

When the water boiled I added 1 cup of oats. I stirred them in well, then turned the heat down to medium, and continued cooking for 1 minute. Then (and here is where things get odd quickly) I opened a can of Beach Cliff sardines, chopped them with a fork, and mixed them into the oatmeal.



It seemed like a good idea at the time.

I quickly decided that some sort of savoury flavoring was necessary, and I added some balsamic vinegar that was laying around. This was not sufficient.

I found a bottle of soy sauce, and added some of that. Still not sufficient.

Next I stirred in some horseradish mustard. Things got better, and I ate half the pot of sardine oatmeal with balamic vinegar, soy sauce, and horseradish mustard.

So my question, TQC, is if the SATs are such good predictors of academic achievement, how did I pull such a dumbshit stunt?

I can see it working both ways. Sort of like that duck/rabbit picture.

Or do you see it as something else completely. If so, what do you see?

2. I watch quite a few Brit shows and I've notice they often say "American" wrong. As in they'll say "Ameer-RI'can" versus "Ah-mare-ihkin" with no stress. Especially if they are trying to say "American" in an "American" accent.

So, how do you say "American"?

Is my way the same across the States or only in my region (East Coast Southern)?

There used to be a place called Common Cup that was a friendly, christian-owned business. I loved how they had simple syrup out if you wanted to sweeten tea so you didn't have to stir and dissolve the little sugar packets. It was just very cozy and calm all in all. Then, this year they closed down after only 4 years in business.

There is also another one called Crossroads. I love the eclectic staff and the hot chocolate !

I'm fighting with my boyfriend right now. Basically, there is a girl who has been my on-and-off friend for a little over a year, but mostly on. My boyfriend doesn't like her because sometimes she gets drunk and high and kisses me. Not romantic making out kisses, just pecks. Overall, she has been a pretty good friend of mine, but recently, we got into a big argument and haven't seen eachother in almost a month. We both apologized and want to hang out tonight. I just told him I might hang out with her tonight because he's been out of town for almost a week and I'm bored. Now, I understand why he doesn't like her kissing me, and I told him that it's not going to happen anymore. After I told him I might hang out with her, he started crying. I told him I choose my friends, not him, and that if he can't handle it, to break up with me now. Whether it's a bad decision to hang out with her or not, it's my damn choice. He says every time she comes into the picture, we fight, so I told him we fight because he's being controlling. So does he have a right to make me feel bad about who I hang out with because he feels it's in my best interest, or do I hang out with whoever I want?

Should I hang out with her?

Also, how do you handle a situation in which you know someone's lying either because of pure proof or because you can just tell?
