I'm not exactly sure how to word this, but can anyone name some characters from ancient times (or even classic literature) that had affairs and were punished for them?

I'm writing a descriptive piece for class and can't think of anything except for Zeus but I can't seem to find whether he was punished or not. What's happening at this point in my writing is that a statue is symbolizing infidelity...I usually think of statues that are of Greek & Roman gods/goddesses, since there seem to be more statues of them than any other time period. Eh, this doesn't really make much sense, does it.

I have had problems with anxiety since I was a kid. I get very panicky if I don't feel totally in control of my body. This means I have avoided drugs like the plague. I had a really nasty panic attack just from smoking a little weed and even small amounts of alcohol make me feel really bad. I'm very sad about this as I would really like to have experimented much more. So, tqc will you tell me what it feels like to be on various substances so I can live vicariously through you? What does it feel like to get really stoned, be on acid or ecstacy? What does coke feel like? What about heroin? Crack? I'm doomed to be really boring and need you to help me out.

this has been a great debate between a few of my friends and me:

minestrone. how is it pronounced?

i pronounce it with a long e like "minestroney" but others swear it's pronounced like "minestrown."


Please Help TQC!  I am very overwhelmed with Google and would like a recommendation from personal experience. I am planning a tropical vacation for mid May. We are looking for an all inclusive vacation that includes food, lodging, booze, and airfare. We were tossing around the idea of the Bahamas or Cozumel, but we are not picky at this point. Tropical drinks and warm sandy beaches are our biggest requirement:) Oh, and that the over all cost doesn't kill us:)  (We aren't looking for anything super fancy) Can anyone recommend a vacay spot, or website that can get us an awesome deal? There are 6 of us and we are coming from Buffalo, NY if that helps. Thanks everyone!!

You order some shoes in a size 11 and they arrive a week later in a size 7. You email the company explaining they sent you the wrong size and inform them that you needed them by a certain date and now it's too late to exchange them. They suggest you have them overnighted for another $25! You return them and don't receive your refund for well over a month. The return shipping was free.

Would you expect them to refund the $11 you paid for the original shipping? Edit: Do you think they SHOULD refund it?

Would you ever buy anything from them again?

On black friday, I worked a 15 hour shift. Those were 15 loooong hours on my feet. By that end of the weekend I had formed a blister on my foot. Its about and inch under my pinky toe.

Fast forward two months later.

This blister has become hard and it hurts. It hurts depending on how I step/walk. It's kinda formed a bubble under the skin. Is this a different kind of blister that I maybe have never encountered? Is it normal for a blister to last this long?

I tried taking a picture.. but the angle is a little awkward.. but I guess if you guys wanna see it... I can try.

Also, On the side of my neck, a little pimple looking thing has formed. It looks like a whitehead and looks like it has pus. Its not as easy to pop though.

Anyone had any experiences with American Eskimo dogs? Specifically, the miniature variety. My bf's roommate is getting one, and we're both unhappy since we're allergic to dogs...and as Google shows me, they have fluffy long hair. :( Aside from that though, I was wondering: how are they as inside dogs? Are they destructive/do they get bored easily? Do they bark a lot? Do they shed a TON or is it pretty normal? Any other info would be appreciated.

bad question but w/e I just want to bitch about this person

I hadn't realized this until recently, but I actually know a guy who is an irresponsible, self-centered drama king, who can only talk about himself and the trials and tribulations he has overcome. I don't think he even has any other interests (you know like sports, movies, music, knitting, etc.) other than himself because that is fucking ALL he talks about. Do you know a lot of adult people like this? It really surprises me that this guy got to be the age he is now without growing up a little.

okay okay for a better question, what do your plates at home look like? Mine are white with a blue band on the edge.

I just bought a new quilt yesterday. I am trying to look for cheap white cotton sheets. I seriously can not find cheap sheets anywhere. I looked on linens'n'things, and even bed bath and beyond, but they don't have any. I even searched ebay and couldn't find anything.

Where do you think I can find these? Why is it so difficult to find plain white sheets!?

Also, now that ONTD can't take anymore comments, how am I going to express my opinions about celebrities? My day is already thrown off kilter!

Hey guys,

My current sharehouse has lost its lease, and I'm looking for somewhere to live before we have to hand in the keys. I've got an interview for another sharehouse later this week, but because I sort of got this place based on knowing one of the existing flatmates, I'm a little worried that I don't know much about the etiquette of sharehouse interviews. Do you think I need to bring along some sort of application? Can you give me any tips on what you think I should do? I want to come across as the relaxed, laidback person I generally am, but I'm pretty anxious about the impending potential homelessness.

 TQC, I don't feel good.
I just got home from taking a test, and it's 10AM. I have a class at 4, but otherwise no obligations. I'm super duper hungry, but I'm afraid if I eat, I won't be able to fall back asleep. What should I do?

What should I do?

Sleep now, wake up before class and eat then
Eat a bit, watch some TV, and see how I feel
Lay in bed and watch a movie until I fall asleep or get bored
Eat and fuck around online, and just lay around all day
Man up and go get an oil change while I have time
Clean! I have all weekend, but my room is GROSS.
Make a delicious meal and then go to sleep with my giant food baby

Hey TQC legal experts.

My boyfriend received a credit card in the mail. He read the paperwork and it said the activation and other fees would only be charged if the card is activated. He didn't want the card so he cut it up and threw it away (never activated it). For over a month now, the credit card company has been calling both our house phone and cell phone 5 times a day each trying to get him to activate a card with them (no mention of owing any money on the card they sent him). He has told them "No, I don't want you card" 5 or 6 times now but they keep calling. Can he threaten legal action for phone harassment since they aren't calling to collect money and our home phone is on the Missouri do not call list? Or is there some crazy loophole that makes it legal for them to do this?

Make dinner for me, TQC!

I have *maybe* 10 to 20 minutes of prep time tonight (between when I get home and when my raid starts) although it can be on the stove/in the oven for as long as necessary. Sandwiches are of course an option, but it's farking cold outside and I demand warmth with my dinner.

This pretty much limits things to boxed stuff, frozen stuff and pasta, and combinations thereof. I am tired of my usual combinations. So, what are some good throw-together meals that you guys like?

TQC, I'm currently holed away in a small cafe, awaiting my four p.m. class. I am the only one in the cafe, aside from a business meeting being held on a the patio and the workers. I'm nestled quietly in a corner, obviously on my laptop, and there are at least 10 tables, two booths, and three couches in the whole place (which is rather large, considering how small it is overall).

Why does this family of mom, dad, and kid come and sit in the table RIGHT next to me? Furthermore, why is the kid pitching a temper tantrum and banging his head into the wooden chair whilst staring at me as though he's auditioning for a remake of The Exorcist?

Now there is another couple in here, and the man, who is rather tall, is wearing long pants, but has them too big, so he's holding them up, in what I consider a semi-obscene gesture. Why do guys do this? The only thing I can think of is they're afraid their penis is going to run away, but I don't think that's physically possible.

for the above, nonsrs answers only, plz. for below, non srs if you want but uh, w/e.

Rude assumptions

Give me your opinion, oh wise TQC.

A while ago, work sent a bunch of us to a "customer service training session". Whatever, it was sort of fun and got us out of the office for a couple days, all good.

A little backstory:  the majority of us there were office types.  There were a few of the factory supervisors there, too.  One of these guys is an older gentleman who goes by the name of Nacho. Seriously. He is Mexican, and his real name is Ignacio.  Oh, and we had to make big name cards that were clearly visible to the presenters, and "Nacho" is what was on his card.

Ok, so....the lady was jibber-jabbering away, and pointed to Nacho to have him answer something.  She asked "What's your name?" before she started, to get all touchy-feely.  He clearly said "Nacho", to which she replied "No, really...what's your name?"  He was rather taken aback, and repeated, with emphasis, "NACHO!"

Her attitude when she asked him what his name was again was of the "You shouldn't let these people insult and degrade you that way..." variety.

Do you think it was rude of her to assume that he was called Nacho in a demeaning manner?  Do you think people should be called what they want to be called?

Nacho was offended by her attitude, as were most of us there.  He got the nickname "Nacho" a long time ago and loves it.

Would you ever consider having a relationship with a brain in a jar if they were perfectly compatible with you? (Assume they have all the necessary internet connectivity.)

If someone was very compatible with you, but you will only meet them once in your life, how likely do you think it is that you could have a good long distance relationship? (Ok this is basically the same as the above with an added real life meet.)

If technology had evolved to such a point that your brain could be intimately wired into someone else's (e.g. feeling their emotions), do you think you could have a good relationship with someone like this?

Dr. TQC, I need your help.

I was fishing today, and I ended up stabbing my middle finger with a used hook, up to the barb. It was a good sized hook, bass fishing sized. Anyway, I had been trying to thread a grass shrimp onto it and it moved (I thought it was dead) and I jerked and the hook sunk in.

I pulled it out very carefully, and, worried there were pieces of anything, I sucked on the wound. I held ice from the bait bag (separate from the bait itself, but they did smell a little fishy) to the wound until it stopped bleeding. As soon as I was home I soaked it in rubbing alcohol.

There is a little bump around the entry/exit wound, and it's a tad tender and swollen. It is the same color and only slightly warmer than the rest of my fingers.

Is this simply from trauma? Should I cut into the wound a little to ensure there is nothing in there? Should I take anything? It doesn't hurt. I have I doctors appointment tomorrow for something else and I haven't had a tetanus shot since middle school (I'm 20 now) but I have a fear of needles. Should I say something? The hook was old and had been used before and on that day. Should I pack it with ice? Should I put more alcohol on it? Help me, Dr. TQC!

I had a container of salicylic acid I'd been using on warts on my feet (which works very quickly, by the way, I would highly recommend the stuff. Don't get the crappy gel, get a vial of liquid that has a brush.) I had a weird rough patch on one hand for a while, but I ignored it for a while having had many calluses over time from baseball. It started to hurt, so I decided to put some of the acid on and see what it did (if it was a wart, it'd kill it like on the feet.) When I first applied it, it coagulated and interestingly formed the shape of my palm print on the surface of the goo that it turns into. More interestingly, a small lump rose to the surface through the already coagulated goo after a minute or so, as if the acid reacted with someting below the surface that expanded faster than the acid reacting with the dead skin cells.

So... what was in my hand?

Right now in school we have a six-period day, with the first five classes rotating and the sixth always at the end of the day. (Monday goes 1 2 3 4 5 6, Tuesday goes 2 3 4 5 1 6, Wednesday goes 3 4 5 1 2 6, etc.) Apparently, this may change next year, so that the sixth class is rotated every day as well.

How would this work without being really confusing every week?

If you like chocolate, what's the best chocolate you've ever had?

I need brands, types, fillings, anything. I'm craving some right now and I want to go out and get the best chocolate I can.

Fun fact: I hate mint& chocolate, and I hate dark chocolate.

I am truly curious about this - for those of you who answer globalwarmer's more odd and sexual posts seemingly seriously, will you say why you choose to?

On a 1-10 scale, how much does it bother you that some random question-asking creeper may be using info you provide as fodder for his/her masturbation rituals?

I really need some new music to listen to and I'm racking my brain trying to think of any and everything I've heard of that I liked, but it's not working.

I like a lot of music featuring female vocalists, and generally the only types of music I like male vocals for are hardcore and ska, and I don't listen to MUCH of that.

Anyway, I like Ani Difranco, Enya, Splashdown, Bikini Kill (and surprisingly I'm not remotely feminist)

I guess I just kind of want up-beat female vocals.

Any suggestions?

TQC... where did the snail in our fish tank come from? It's just one itty bitty snail in the 5 gallon tank with Milo (my betta fish).

Why aren't our fingers all the same length?

What's the funniest comment you've heard someone make recently? Earlier today my brother delivered a sarcastic comment in an utterly deadpan voice, and I couldn't stop laughing.

Edit: To the ladies (and men) that read romance novels, who is your favorite author? What are your favorite books/series? I started reading the Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning on Tuesday, and I'm already on the seventh book. I love romance novels way too much.

How do you feel about Chili's?

Don't love Chili's but will eat there on occasion if you're really hungry or if someone wants Chili's for their birthday.
Will only eat at Chili's if you're drunk
Hate Chili's and refuse to eat there, even though you've never eaten there before.
LOVE Chili's, and may not request to go there all the time but if you're driving and someone says hey let's eat somewhere tonight, you somehow always end up at Chili's.
