Sorry if this isn't the right place for this, but the info didn't specify anything against this sort of thing, and I wasn't sure where else to go.

A friend told me today that she'd attempted suicide and she wanted to talk about it. I feel way out of my league. Can someone point me in the direction of a website where I could get information on this sort of thing? Thanks very much.

Say you're assigned to live in a single room in a dorm so you're expecting there to be only 1 twin-sized bed to be there. You move in and see that there are 2 twin beds.

What would you do with the other bed? Use it as a sofa? Push it against the other bed to make a king-sized bed?

Have you (or has anyone you know pretty well) ever owned a bird? What kind of bird! Will you tell me some things about keeping birds (little ones, not those like...african grey parrots or anything scary-huge) as pets?

If you don't know anything about little pet birds, will you just tell me about your pet(s)?

If you don't even have any pets...!

What colour are the walls in your bedroom?

Do the curtains match?

What about the duvet cover? (Duvet = Comforter/doona)

What about...YOUR EYES?

TQC, do YOU judge?

Why do people claim to be non-judgmental even when they know they do it all the time? Do they temporarily delude themselves into thinking that they don't have opinions on things?

It's a pet peeve of mine.

I'm moving out and to another state (1000 miles away) in several days. I'm incredibly excited (I've wanted to move to the place for 5-6 years, and am in love with it), incredibly terrified/nervous, and a bit sad, at the same time. :( (I'm assuming all of these are normal...my first time living on my own/away from family). My mom and I are tremendously close (despite our often bickering moments...it's always been just she and I, so we're more like best friends), and she won't be going with me...and I already miss her, and feel sad about leaving her (I hope to be able to come back for Christmas). (yes, this was a giant run on sentence, with lots of "and")

TQC, what should I do to help ease my sorrows? What about hers? What special things can I do for the both of us in the next few days? Will you give me any idea or word of advice to make me feel better? :(

Srs answers plz.

If you were planning a party, and you could invite an unlimited number of friends and have an unlimited budget to spend on the party, what would you do?

I would rent out a theater in the Alamo Drafthouse (a movie theater that serves alcohol and food to you during the movie), watch an amazing movie, and then use the audio system to do Karaoke.

I am currently in a state of complete and utter desperation to get employed, and I finally got a reply from a drycleaning place yesterday.

It looks something like this;

'Thanks for your reply,

Are you able to make it in for an interview (perhaps early next week)? I am available most days, but I will need to confirm a time and day 1st so I am here.
 
Our Address is gdrnhgbgui. There is parking at rear if you drive in.
 
Cheers

My question is, how do I word the reply? I am so bad at writing semi-formal-ish emails, and I -really- don't want to arse this up before I've even had an interview.

I tried le google but I pretty much just got a lot of stuff about how to write cover letters.

Thankyouuu

ETA: Thanksguys, I guess it was way more obvious than I thought -_- Your employment-gaining skillz totally blow my mind :D

I was this close to getting my flight, rental car, and Coachella tickets last night but then I realized staying in a hotel alone scares me quite a bit. I would probably end up sleeping with the lights on every night.

Should I spend well over $1000 going to Coachella or should I just buy a fisheye lens instead?

Have you ever said something REALLY mean to somebody specifically for the greater good of the situation?

You know, like in White Fang when the guy tells the wolf to get lost and the wolf hesitates cause he really loves this guy so the guy yells at him really shitty until the wolf runs away heartbroken, all in the name of the greater good for the wolf? (I probably butchered that since I haven't seen it since I was a little kid)

Or like in twilight when bella says the same thing to her dad that her mom said when she was leaving so that he would let her leave without explaining that she was running from the vampires? uh not that I read it or anything idk

Have you ever gone to a concert by yourself? Any positive/negative experiences?

A metal band I really like is coming to town and my only two metal-friends probably can't come. I've wanted to see them for a while and I know it would be a good show, but the entire length of going out to see them (travel time, waiting, etc.) seems like not a lot of fun by myself. Can't decide if it's worth it or not.

Graduate School

I just helped an acquaintance of mine with his Graduate school application essays.  I don't actually like this person.  I think he is arrogant, condescending, and extremely rude to others.  He has a sense of entitlement that rubs me the wrong way.  He is also not nearly as intelligent as he thinks he is and his writing leaves something to be desired.
Though my reaction was to say "hell no, you don't deserve to get in anyway", I gave him an honest critique (that I worked hard on) and even made a mock-up of how my suggestions would read as a whole.

I don't mind him not taking all of my suggestions, but he did not complete all of the grammar-related updates that I made and he submitted it today.
The most glaring mistake was his use of the phrase "The reason is because..." or similar.

Now I feel that he didn't even appreciate my effort at all.

Would you have helped him?
If so, would you have given him an honest mark-up?

Do you think he'll be admitted?

EDIT: Apparently I am not qualified even to do my own work error-free.  Edited for grammatical correctness only.

The Essence of "Folk"

For my latest Graphic Design project I have to represent a genre of music, beginning abstractly with "gestural" images. I was assigned folk music. So far I have an image of wood grain, and a lot of rustic style fabrics and quilts and the like. Some flower embroidery, which I'm hoping will count as non-representational. ETA: It has to be in black and white at this point, unfortunately!

How would you represent a musical genre abstractly?

Dear TQC, my calves hurt. I've spent the last week or so napping and being depressed and not moving very much, and now I'm moving around a bit today to try and clean my room so I can pack my things.

Sincerely,

WHAT WAS YOUR MOST RECENT AWKWARD SITUATION WITH A FRIEND/EX/ETC???????????????????????

One of my best friend's from hs went crazy when she started college and started drinking/trying to kill herself. I visited her in rehab as often as I could but she hardly remembered me because they were doing electroshock therapy for her depression, and when she got out of rehab all she did was bother me to buy her alcohol.

I ran into her on campus today and holy titty fucking awkward, my friends.

The new mom of octuplets in CA already has 6 other kids, all under 7. I'm sure you've heard about this?

While I don't really care how many kids someone has, or how they have them, she is now over the legal ratio for childcare centers, even if you include her parents as caregivers.  And I've read that the mom has threatened to move out and let her daughter deal with them all on her own.

How many babies is too many?  At least with the one-kid-a-year variety, the older kids can help the mom, although that's not fair either.

Hi TQC. I have always been deeply influenced by the works of Mencken and I'd like to express that by getting a tattoo of a quote by him. Here's what I'm thinking:

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.

The question is: where should it go? Anywhere but my lower back, because I already have the Gettysburg Address there.
This is so ridiculous.

What are good reasons to *not* move to Mexico for a little while to learn Spanish?

I want to enroll in a language immersion program for 6-8 months. I've been wanting to do so for years, and if I decide to do so, it'd be either this year or next year. If I go for 8 months, it'd be $11K for the classes, room in a homestay, and half-board. Besides taking out the loan, I can't think of a particular good reason to not do this...although honestly, I'm kinda nervous to do this.

Is there something I'm overlooking? Is my nervousness justifiable?

Another Hypothetical Qustion:

You are in trouble. You are in some shady unknown prison, the type where they torture people with Barney and Metallica songs. You're accused of doing something terrible, and the people detaining you want to experiment with a new sort of torture.

This new form of torture temporarily burns images in your mind, repeatedly, over and over again. You have a choice between two images.

A) Goatse
or
B) Tub Girl

The only other option is a false confession - which would result in death.

What do you choose?

Bolded for the TL;DR
This is some guy's post on the Craigslist men seeking to meet women forum...

"Ok let's get the weight requirement out of the way right away. I like skinny girls. If you're over 120lbs., it's just not going to work.

You can't have kids. I'm not looking for a single mom who needs a babysitter.

If you're a flakey bitch, FUCK OFF. IMMEDIATELY. I hate flakey bitches.

Those are all my major requirements.

I don't mind if you complain about things. I actually think it's cute sometimes. But acting like a man is NOT CUTE. In fact it's fucking annoying as hell which is why I hate 99% of American women. They try to be the boss. I'm the motherfucking boss-- I'm the guy. You're the girl. If you are some raging fucking feminazi, you can fuck off and die. Hopefully you will get hit by a slow moving tractor and your bones will get crushed, and I'll put a cup near your eyeballs so when the aqueous humor squirts out, I'll mix it with Midori & Coconut milk and have myself a Crushed Cunt Creme (it's a new drink I just invented) and get drunk off of your agony.

So remember: acting like a woman = very good. Acting like a man = butch dyke annoying lesbian feminazi who needs to die a slow painful death."

The horror

Hypothetical question poll!

Think of the worst person you personally know, the most annoying/disgusting person you can. Surely the last person on earth you would want to have sex with.

Now for some reason you have to choose:
A) You have to fuck this person, but no one will know or find out. In fact, even this horrible person won't remember! But it's not just some quicky, I'm talking all-night dirty motel sex that lasts for hours. But only you will ever know that this occurred.
OR
B) You don't fuck the person, but everyone believes you did and cannot be convinced otherwise! All of your friends and co workers and family and even the horrible person is 100% sure that you slept with them. The jokes and gossip go on as you would imagine.

So what's it going to be???

Option A -you do them and nobody knows

Option B -you don't do them but everyone thinks you did

Would you rather:
A) Have a one night stand and wake up with permanent scarring from the other person carving their name into you while you slept.
Or
B) During some crazy psychotic episode carve your name into someone's arm while they're asleep after a one night stand, go to jail for a long time for, and have everyone you know read the article and know your name and what you look like?

So basically, which side of this story would you prefer to be on?

One of my friends is collecting recipes from all her friends, and told me that I need to participate under penalty of physical violence. I don't really cook much, so I am posing this question to you:

What is your favorite simple but yummy recipe?

Gmail used to have, at the top left of the page right next to the GMAIL logo, a search bar where you could type a term and search either your email or the web. Right? You could search the web from there?

I didn't make that up, right?

WHERE DID THE "SEARCH THE WEB" BUTTON GO??

Would a civil infraction charge of "mischief" stop someone from getting an apartment? I'm filling out paperwork for an apartment and it asks whether or not you've been arrested. My boyfriend has and wants to put no. If he does and they find out he has a civil infraction on his record in Canada (we're in the US), will we be screwed out of the apartment?

Dear TQC collective brain,

I am wanting a tattoo of a quote, but i dont know where to put it. will you help me by coming up with some ideas?

the quote is: If you compare yourself to others you may become vain and bitter for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
it is from Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

I dont want it on my back as i already have tattoos there. i was thinking of my ribs but that would hurt like a bitch. was also thinking of the outside of my thigh but thats a bit random i think. my wee sister suggested the back of my calf but im not sure if thats a little butch. theres also a possibility of splitting the quote in 2 and having a half on each hip/side (on the outside, not  at my tummy, coz that would just accentuate the podge) or having it just on one hip (running from above my hip bone to the top of my thigh. again on the outside, not down the front), but im just not sure. the only tattoos i have are on my back. the rest of me is a blank canvas. do you have any suggestions?

So I'm trying to figure out how many hours I've worked at my temp job. I've copied the times from my timecard and... it doesn't make any sense. For example, on the 2nd I worked from 8.08 to 13.92. What the hell is the 92? Can someone explain this or convert my times for me?

Inspired by a couple of today's Fandom!Secrets;

1. Have you ever had a dream with a fictitious character? If so, who?

2. Have you ever had a sex dream with a fictitious character? If so, who?

3. Do you find it weird that people have sex dreams with fictitious characters? Especially rape dreams?

(Personally, I find the ick factor high.)

And if you don't care for dreams;

4. Who is currently your favorite television bad guy or at least semi-bad guy?

What did you name your animal?

How did you decide on that name?

My cat is Mr. Nickles. My cousin named him for me. The weekend before I got him I was saying if I got a cat I would name him Mr. Crumb but when I got this cat I didnt think he was a Mr. Crumb. I stuck with the Mr and let my cousin do the rest. She said he was grey...like a nickel. lol
