At my internship I was given the task of tracking down the exact amount of pages each of over 150 courses assigns its students. And I have to sort it into four different categories.

(If you were given this task would you eventually give up and just start BS'ing (er..."guesstimating") the numbers, especially if you knew that it's basically just busy work and that the place is trying to pander to the poor students who claim they have too much reading but really just want to go to Amsterdam and get high instead of doing homework?)

Okay, here's the real question:

Does it make sense to analyze something like reading assignments for college level courses by a purely quantitative standpoint?

Solidarity

Venus Williams has a knack of winning Wimbledon.

If Serena wins the French Open, should Venus not play at Wimbledon
to give her sister a chance for the Grand Slam  (the 4 Majors in a calender year)?

She would still have to win the US Open after that.

Will you tell me what freaks you the fuck out, especially if it is irrational to be freaked out by it?

For example, pictures of camouflaged animals freak me the fuck out. Bigtime. Oh, god. I just looked at a picture of a camouflaged Owl and I have no idea why I did it, my skin is crawling.

Also, large hives/nests (not the cute little ones!) of any kind freak me out.

(Also when the things in this post scare you, will you post in caps as a defense mechanism, like me?)
This is so ridiculous.

Yes, this is fairly petty.

TQC, if there's anything I hate, it's people commenting on my facebook status just to argue. I also hate losing arguments.

I recently put this up:

"Melissa wants *some people* to quit blocking the stimulus because they're 'worried about balancing the budget,' when they approve of a $350M per day war."

And while I realize that everyone's political views are different and diversity is what makes America great, this crazy bitch I know always has to find a way to argue with something. So she posts the following on my wall. Collapse )

TQC, how do I argue with this and make a point that will force her to shut her trap? I don't know why Princeton LSAT logic ever got thrown into the equation, but since she felt the need to comment, and I'm sure will soon follow up with something about how I need to find God, I really just want to win this one. little. discussion. You are all smarter than I am. Learn me.

Should I get a Manual Treadmill?




Or Indoor Bycycle Trainer?



If I was sure I could run on it and not just walk/slow jog, I would favor the treadmill. However, I have no experience with manual treadmills. Running is a more efficient workout and I want a challenge.  That said, the bike trainer might also be good, because I have a lot of experience biking, and it would get me through the winter months where it's too icy out.

do my homework, TQC!

If you were doing a stylized London skyline, what sort of buildings would you put in? I already have the Tower Bridge, Big Ben, the London Eye, a telephone booth, even 30 St. Mary's Ax (the gherkin).

I'm a little wary (& weary) because I have a lot of tall buildings with pointy tops, which is why I'm struggling to think of something beyond Westminster Abbey or Buckingham Palace. Also, wide, rather than tall buildings would help balance out the current composition.

Any ideas? If it helps, it's going to be a concertina.

Thanks, guys.

My boyfriend and me just moved into a 2 bedroom rented flat. It had been advertised for months as unfurnished and ready for immediate entry.
However, we moved in and the landlords furniture is in it. I'm talking double bed, single bed, couch, wardrobes and looads more. Now we don't mind about the kitchen appliances because we need to buy our own. But the point in us moving into a unfurnished place was so we could start building up our own things. We contacted the estate agent and they said the landlord is looking for somewhere to store the stuff. This was like a week ago and they still haven't contacted us. The stuff is literally minging, so we wouldn't mind taking it to the dump ourselves if he's just going to do that.

What would you do? I'm getting srsly annoying having to crawl around my house because we have 2 of everything :/

Right of Religion VS. Right to Face Your Accuser

In Canada there is a sexual assault case going on which a Muslim woman who wears Niqab (veil) is at the centre of a Judicial problem.

Namely, in Canada one has the right to face their accuser. The defendant's lawyer argues that his client's rights to face his accuser are being denied to him because the victim, the Muslim lady wear Niqab.

So Question Club Folk, what do you think, in a Multicultural society in which both, right to religious practice and right to face ones accuser are enshrined in our Charter of Rights and Freedoms (like the Bill of Rights) which right holds over the other?

What the Judge ruled...
Collapse )

*edit* the issue is strictly the Niqab, the veil over the face, not the Hijab the hair covering.

Do you think these stories should be common knowledge?

As seanseansean said it better than I ever could: "tbh christianity makes up a large part of western cultural heritage, so i think that the bible should be taught as literature in schools just so biblical references don't fly over everyone's head in older works, or even in newer ones"

This is why I think they should be common knowledge.

My mom was babysitting my cousin who is 4 and a half and fully potty trained. When he went to the bathroom he asked my mom to wipe his ass. He said at daycare they make him do it himself but at home my aunt and uncle still do it for him. I thought this was kind of weird but I don't really know anything about when things stop becoming normal for little kids. I probably would have said something to the effect of "Well pretend this is daycare."

Apparently in Atlanta (a very big city), it's not always required to go to bartending school to be a bartender.

I live in the dorms right now. I really want to live off campus next year. I found a really nice condo, 1100sq. ft., 2 bed 2 bath in a safe neighborhood. It's $1200/month but was advertised as like per student. I want this place and I could afford half the rent they're asking but... no roommate.

How can I find a roommate in like, 2 weeks? I've done an awful job at making friends while being here at school. I need to meet them before but I really would LOVE to put a security/deposit on this place. :-/

I've recently started seeing a guy, and we've been hanging out nonstop for the past 2 weeks. Since I live in an uninviting dorm room, and he is living with his parents in a nice apartment in the same city, we have naturally been spending most of the time at his place.

I've slept over 4 nights (not consecutively), so on those days, his parents would provide me with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I feel as though I've been mooching off of them even though they may not see it as such. And whenever I suggest leaving, he insists that I stay.

How would you deal with this situation? Would you get a gift of some kind? I'm not sure of the etiquette when it comes to situations like this.

B. It is not okay to spank or hit adults.

refilling ink at Walgreen's?

Has anyone ever gotten an ink cartridge filled at Walgreen's and had it not work that well when you got home? I took mine there because I ran out of ink suddenly and needed to print some stuff for school. The only other way to get ink is to order it from the Dell website. :(

Anyway, I am confused because the woman who did it said the test page she ran printed perfectly. When I got home and put it in, the computer said I was "low on ink" (even though I'd just had it filled) and the printout worked somewhat, but wasn't the best at all -- it was kinda faded.

Any thoughts?

ETA: I'm looking at a hostel. Not a hotel. I'd prefer to have people's opinions (if you've stayed at one), than having to aim blindly and hope to strike something nice.


ETA: Never mind. Seems nobody's gone to Hawaii on the cheap - I can Google the rest myself...

tqc, my phone is weird.

when i'm on the phone with my boyfriend my phone will cut out. i won't be able to hear myself talk, or him. he apparently can hear me fine as i ask over again "are you there?" if i wait a minute or two, the line somehow reconnects. what the hell is going on? has this ever happened to you?

if no, when was the last time you sang?
what song was it?

Is it just me, or is it really odd that Animal Planet has a series about jockeys? I'm still not over the initial "bwat?"

ETA: I was mainly baffled by them supporting horse racing, not them having a show about a profession related to animals.

Who is the guy who plays the bike messenger or whatever he is on Bobby Flays Throwdown ? He usually shows up at the beginning when Flay gets his "throwdown" I mean is he an actor or like a friend of Flays ?

Grammatical question

Is it supposed to be

a) "...if I was going to tell her.."
or
b) "...if I were going to tell her.."

?? I keep seeing both variations everywhere, and I don't remember what I learned in school. Also, please don't mock me saying I should know this. English is my second language. :(

TQC, my roommate has a poster of this up, and we can't figure out what the thing in front of her neck/face on the right side is. It's driving everyone crazy.

What is that thing in front of her?!?!? Is it some weird trick of the light? A bizarre jewelry thing? Space monkeys? Diamond cancer? WHAT IS IT, TQC?!?!?!?
