My friend claims he sometimes cooks in his sleep. The other day he mentioned waking up, only to discover two empty cans of tuna and some pizza crust near his bed. He had no recollection of opening the tuna or cooking the (frozen) pizza.

TQC I am adopting a 2 year old dog next month. She is (judging from appearance) some sort of German Shepherd/Akita mix. Her first owners gave her away because she killed a kitten and her current owners already have 2 other dogs or else they would love to keep her. She seems very lovey and affectionate with people but I am a little nervous about her being around other dogs.

She knows simple commands like sit and lay but could use some work and doesn't really have much experience with leash walking so I was thinking I would get her in some obedience classes however I don't want her to attack another dog or anything. Is there a way to find out how she will act around strange dogs other than just wandering blindly into a classroom? What type of leash is good for training? I'd prefer not to use choke/spike collars. WILL YOU GIVE ME SOME DOG TIPS? I AM SO EXCITED.

Here is a picture of her :D

Will you ever view your offspring as adults?  Will you view your offspring's girlfriends/boyfriends and wives/husbands as adults if they've been dating since they were in college? 

I ask because I don't think I'll ever be treated like an adult by my bf's mother.  His father treats me like an adult, but his mother never will.

tl;dr pity party + question

Today, I'm supposed to have a midterm and a meeting with a potential adviser for my graduate degree (along with another class I wouldn't mind missing).

I've been sick off and on for a few weeks, but yesterday I started to feel really feverish and achey so I skipped the gym and my soccer game in attempt to feel better. Well, last night I took Nyquil and still couldn't sleep- my throat became all swollen and my fever is up higher than it's been in years, and I kept having suffocating nightmares because of it,

Should I email/call my professors and try to get a make-up midterm and reschedule my meeting so I can rest and theoretically get better? Or should I suck it up, probably perform not so great on my test, and contaminate all my classmates?

FYI The class I have my midterm for is a grad class, so it's not like I'm trying to get an exception in a class of 600 students.

What's something you regularly receive unsolicited advice about?

I need your life making decision skills once again, TQC.


Conditions outside are currently at 'hockey rink' conditions. Because my work is a dick, it's the only thing open under a Governor declared State of Emergency. I did decline to go into work until noon, but I'm really thinking about not going in at all.

I get 72 hours of time to not go into work for the whole year. I've used 14 hours total so far this year. If I decide not to go in at all, that puts me at 20 hours used so far for the year. And it's not even February yet.

I am really not sure what to do. What would you guys do?

And if you don't care, would you rather have to drive on ice or snow?

Plan my trip for me!

I live in near San Fran in CA. I want to go somewhere (anywhere really!) for Pres wknd (Feb 13 - 16) but don't have a tonne of money to spend (like to keep lodging under $300). What do you recommend? I was thinking of camping but I'd have to borrow gear from someone and if it's rainy it would totally suck. If your recommendation includes a hot tub, I'd be even happier. So, TQC where should I go?

ETA: I think I found a good place in Reno with lots of cool stuff to do plus snow to go play in. Thanks for your suggestions!! They'll be great for other weekends.

So, I ran into a curb this morning. More specifically, I was pushed into it, but I was a dumbass and only looked at my back end when determining damage -- there was none, so I let the dude that tapped me go on his way. I didn't think about how I'd just ran into a curb, pretty hard. Which has fucked my suspension.

This is the first time I've been in a position to use insurance -- can anyone tell me what this process will be like? Thanks.

Have you ever had to call 911? What was the situation? Was the operator nice to you or mean?


I've had to call 911 twice. Once was for a situation at work when someone had an accident in the bathroom and we couldn't get the door open. The operator was really meant to me! They kept yelling at me! It was scary!
The second one was this summer. I lived with my grandparents and my grandpa was basically comatose in the bathroom. I thought he was dead. That operator however was very nice and calm.

So, I was wondering... We all were kids once and we were both stupid and indestructible. And we used it to the fullest much to our parents horror.

What were the stupidest things you did as a child for fun, that by all the rights should have landed you in hospital for a long time but you walked away unscratched?  Did you know that it was dangerous back then and if you did - why did you still do it?

Tell us all about it so that other can have a laugh at your past stupidity!

cell to embryo

Hi TQC!

I know this may be a long shot... I am currently taking a class on the human female. In class we were asked to label the diagram (Cell to Embryo) that is seen below from the Hubbard Scientific company. I have filled in the numbers (1 to 52) like the teacher told us to. However, I believe a good portion of the answers are incorrect. This teacher thinks he knows the answers, but half the class does not believe he is correct in his guesses I was wondering if anyone else out there happens to have an accurate answer key to this diagram.



Also, how do you feel then a teacher thinks he or she knows the answer, but is not 100% sure?


Thanks,
Laura :-D

1. I am a conservative who did not vote for Obama. I have recently been seeing many of my conservative counter parts being very begrudging about President Obama...things as petty as they wouldn't have lunch with him if given the opportunity. I think this is totally stupid and it annoys me. It's the president of the United States. He didn't get there by sleeping his way to the top - I don't find myself to be above anyone who holds that office and no mater what party affiliation they are or whether I agree with them or not, doing lunch with the president of the most powerful country in the world would be something I would like to do. Hello? Isn't that common sense? Would you have lunch with a president that you didn't politically agree with? Why or why not?

2. Do you crave something sweet after most meals? If so, do you cave to it often?

3. Have you ever seen or come in contact with something from the "other side" (as in ghosts, spirits, etc.)? If so, tell us a bit about it?

tqc, i have had a spider vein "starburst" on the left side of my nose for as long as i can remember. for my 19th birthday i'm thinking about having it removed because i hate it so much. however, when i look up various dermatology centers for research, most of the results i find have to do with spider veins on legs or across the entire face. i only have this little spot and need an idea of how much it would cost. i've gotten a range of $233-400, but that is for leg vein removal.

has anyone had any experience getting a starburst removed? stories are appreciated. :)

teal deer question: I'm moving ~1000 miles (~23 hours, according to googlemaps) in a about five weeks.  Silver is a Siamese with a classic Siamese Meow, and he's extremely vocal when he's in the car. The longest we've ever driven with him is about four hours, but he meowed literally, the entire. way. there.  So for this move, I'm hoping for maybe some diazepam (Valium) for this trip, both to relax them when they're in the car and strange hotel rooms for two days and then in a new house, and to make travelling with Silver a little more bearable.  I want to schedule an appointment for my Sir Fluffykins III to get his vaccinations two weeks before we move, and his brother, Silver, had his vaccinations in December, from a new vet.  In December, Silver was overweight according to this vet.  He's a large cat, his healthy weight over the last five years has been 11.5lbs, but he was ~12 pounds (winter weight, I believe, since he put it on from September to December and is now shedding a little bit of it) and the vet pretty much chewed me out for it and essentially told me I'm a terrible pet owner for feeding him Royal Canin, which contains "way too much grain" (and then recommended Science Diet... Right, lol).  So I'm probably going to a different vet for Fluffykins' vaccinations.  I guess my question is twofold. 
One, I'm not a crazy person for asking for Cat Valium, am I?  
And two, am I likely to have any problem getting it, providing I can take Silver into the different vet, the one who gives Fluffykins his vacs, and show the vet that he's current on shots, healthy, etc?

Dear fishy TQCers,

I recently purchased a tropical fish tank, and am in the process of cycling the tank.  The filter (Top Fin 10 #35902) is doing something weird.  It starts up alright, and sucks/pushes the water through, and is almost completely silent while it's doing it.  However it seems to randomly lose a bit of suction or something, causeing it to rattle and clunk and make horrible noises and only push 3/4 the water that it normally does.. If I lift it out of the tank and push it back in a few times, it starts up again.  It also fixes itself if i leave it long enough sometimes.

How do I make it stop doing that?  Did i set it up wrong?  Help!  :)

make my life decisions for me :D (TL;DR)

I get a free ride to a certain university due to my mother being a professor there. However, they don't really offer what I'm looking for (small uni) to the extent that I'd like (cultural anthropology, more specifically anthropology of myth/language).

They've got a fantastic forensic anthropology program but I'm trying to stay as far away from forensics as I can.. I'm really tempted to apply to Concordia's (Montreal) anthropology of myth program but I'm being scolded for throwing away my chance to go to university for free (which I understand)

TQC, is it worth going just because it's free even if I'm really not interested in the program!?

What art should I try to find and possibly put on my walls in poster-form?  (not anime or nudity)

Do q-tips really help cause ear infections, when you use them to dig out ear-goop?

Are "study skills" really that important to learn, when you're already getting straight A's?  Is it understandable for that person to get angry with people who continue to profess that being aware of study skills is the only way to succeed in just about every aspect of life?

What causes the speech impediment where people say "tree" instead of "three" or "turty" instead of "thirty"? (as in can't say the THR sound)
almost

:D

1. what does the room you're in smell like right now?
2. what song do you want to play/learn how to play in the instrument of your choice?

1. my room smells like sharpies, pasta salad, and breaded shrimps. mmm.
2. my bloody valentine's sometimes in an electric guitar. pfft.

I studied abroad in June in Spain. I had to pay both tuition to my university AND to the college that is in Spain, so I basically paid twice the tuition I would have. I scanned the education section of IRS.gov, but I couldn't find anything on international school.

I'm sure this question is stupid, but when it comes to taxes I completely lose all my sense. My logic tells me I can't claim my tuition for a school outside the US, but do any of you know if I can claim the tuition for the school in Spain, or only the school in the US?

Where IS my file?

I'm not online somewhere where I could get an answerto this type of question, so please,please tqc, help!

I opened an email .doc attachment and after that I wrote pages of text in it. Went to save and close, but it only asked me if I wanted to save, not where! So now... It's saved somewhere ) or is it? Maybe in the Temporary Internet Files.. but I can't find that). I tried searching, but failed.

Help, please?

My dad is bringing ribs home in a little while (I'd say between 8-9 and it's 6:20 now) Should I have some mac and cheese now or wait until he comes and have it with my ribs?

why does trapped wind hurt so damn much?

*clutches belly and whimpers*

if you dont care about my pain what is something that happened to you that was traumatic at the time but now just makes an amusing story?

i fell down the side of a train while trying to board it when i was 14. like right down, my feet were touching track (not the live one thakfully) and my face was level with the step. my sister had gone on before me and when i feebly said her name she turned round, saw i wasnt there, and assumed i had vapourised (she was studying the Hiroshima disaster at school). some woman hauled me up then leapt on the train. i bruised my leg to the bone and can still feel it twinge sometimes now, 12 years later.
i still hate getting on and off trains. which wasnt good back then as i had to get the train to and from school every day, and currently take it to and from work. FYI if you are ever getting a train from platform 2 at Croy station, Scotland, take a look at the size of the damn gap. its like a foot and a half from the platform  to the train when it should just be a couple of inches :(.
This is so ridiculous.
