A guy at Denny's kept taking my picture on his phone and throwing stuff at me.
So on the way out, I took the hamburger off his plate and ran like mad...but now I feel bad about taking his food.

What was the last thing you did that made you feel terrible?

How do penguins identify the sex of each other aside from mating behaviors?

How do we know that the gay married penguin couples at zoos in the U.S. and China actually know the other penguin (their husband) is male? Can they tell through smell or something?

Hey, Catholic TQCers, Ash Wednesday is coming up. Are you giving up anything for Lent? If so, what?

I think I may give up soda. I don't know if I can really do it again. Did it one Lent season and I was cranky and sleepy throughout the whole thing.

Non-Catholic TQCers,

In keeping with the theme, what is your favorite seasonal candy?

And one last question, after seeing the fish with the transparent head, (Those things that look like green ping pong balls are its eyes.) when was the last time an animal or nature in general made you go WTF?

Question about mold..

Upon close inspection, it seems we have some black mold along part of the grout in the shower tiles, and something quite creepy popped up yesterday, making me notice the mold problem in the first place. I've been googling around, but can't find anything except info on the standard black mold, and was wondering if anyone knows what this may be?

Ever been surprised to hear an obscure song you like in a commercial/TV show/movie/etcetera?

My favorite band, the Dirtbombs, had their song "I Can't Stop Thinking About It" in a BF Goodrich radio commercial. I literally freaked out when I heard it.

"Birdies Singing" by Kelley Stoltz is now known for being that song from all the Regions Bank commercials.

"You're On My Mind" by Ko and the Knockouts was featured in the film "Stepbrothers", which made me squeal in the movie theater. They're incredibly unknown, I was NOT expecting that at all.

Oh, and when I was in England last year and saw this commercial, I was amazed to hear a cover of "Have Love, Will Travel" by the Sonics.

Also, do you like it when things like this happen, or do you consider it to be a "sell-out" move?

TQC, it's time to start weaning my puppy off puppy food and onto adult food! (D'AAAAWWWWW my little girl is growing up.)

Will she get sick if I just start giving her adult food instead of mixing them? I am lazy but I will do it if she will get sick.

Also, breakfast. Should I have:
- Trader Joe's everything bagel with onion & chive cream cheese
- Vanilla almond flax cereal with a) freeze-dried strawberries, b) bananas, c) dried blueberries?

- Peppermint tea
- Peppermint hot cocoa

What did/will YOU have for breakfast?

My boyfriend of one year broke up with me last night with a text message. We're going to talk tonight and I hope we work things out, but everyone is telling me I shouldn't just forgive him so easy. What should I do? I love him, but he hurt me bad last night.

What should I do to keep my mind off things until we talk later?

I just shaved my husband's head and I accidentally took more off in one patch on the back of his head when I was looking for stray long hairs, but I was already on the lowest setting when I shaved his head so I can't really FIX it unless I just shaved him bald. So I didn't tell him about that shorter patch on his head.

Should I continue to be mean and not tell him, or should I fess up and make him feel like he needs to go bald?

Power Pointless

I use power point a lot in my classes and teaching. I see people absolutely butcher power points by making them gawd-awful looking, so I decided to make my own power point presentation telling other how and how not to use power point. I have uploaded it here: How to create a professional Power Point presentation.ppt BTW, the class I made this for is an 8th grade Social Studies class.

I am interested in your productive criticism of it, and have any stories of people using horrible power point presentations?

When was the last time you saw someone lose their shit over something completely ridiculous?

One of my Dad's gf's kids was asked to make 2 cups of tea, and all I could hear from my room is "I don't know how to do it! I don't want to carry the cups, they're too hot! Why don't YOU come and get it? Why can't you make your own cup of tea?!" and my Dad's gf is all "Look, I'll show you how to do it, so you know for next time. It's easy, watch." But he was having NONE of it - "NO I DON'T WANT TO KNOW HOW TO DO IT! I'M NEVER DOING ANYTHING FOR YOU EVER AGAIN!" and storms off.

Is there a secret to making smoothies without having an awesome blender? I just made one with mine that is approximately as old as I am and it took me like 15 minutes. Will I be a slave to Jamba Juice and their smoothies forever?

Would you "accidentally" hit decaf for a shitty customer, as a barista?
(I've never done this, but watched people who did. I worked in a campus Starbucks so I didn't actually encounter a lot of rude people. Just stupid ones.)

Who was the last horrible customer you encountered? It can be at your job, or just as a witness somewhere else.

Have you ever owned a futon mattress? I have a pretty messed up back and most of the mattresses that I have slept on don't help it any, so I am thinking of getting a futon mattress. Not one of the ones that fold up, but a large queen one that lays flat on either floor, top of my box spring, or in a bed frame.

Do any of you have any advice? does it help your back? firm or soft? any good? thanks!

Dating this or that

Which person would you rather date?

Drop dead gorgeous face, average body
Incredibly sexy body, average face

Which person would you rather date? Assume both persons are decent looking

Brilliant mind, high creativity, not much of a sense of humor or social skills
Charming, very funny, gets along with everybody, below average intelligence

Which person would you rather date? Assume both persons are decent looking

Romantic, sweet, makes you feel appreciated daily, and has an aversion to sex. Cuddling and kissing are as good as it gets
Not romantic at all, a bit too into themselves. They not only like sex, but are good in bed

Which person would you rather date?

Person who looks just like your ex. They could be siblings
Person who looks a lot like your mom/dad

Which person would you rather date? Assume both persons are decent looking

High dramatics. Not a week goes by without some episode at work, with family or friends. Has baggage. Need to be reassured a lot
Just very boring. None of this person's interests are remotely interesting. Not funny whatsoever but that doesn't stop him/her from thinking they are. All their jokes fail, but you've lost interest before the punchline is even delivered

Which person would you rather date? Assume both persons are decent looking

Ex-prostitute. Banged probably over 150 people over a one year span, but that was like back in 2006. Now they want a relationship. Totally clean bill of health
Has paid for prostitutes. 5 in the last 3 years, and as recent as 6 months ago. Totally clean bill of health

Did you have sex ed in school? Was it any good?

If you went to a catholic school, you are required to give details. My friend did and he said that they mostly just yelled at them about Jesus and sinning. Some boy asked what masturbation was, and they said "It's sinful, don't worry about it." Well how do they know not to do it if you won't say what it is!

I went to a public school and we did not have sex ed, just talk about periods.

TCQ, what's a place around you that you do not want to go because of its reputation?

if the crime statistics said that the place was perfectly fine regardless of the reputation, would you still not want to go?

What would it take to get you to go there? At night? In the morning?

For me, it's Camden. And there's a Nine Inch Nails concert there, and I have to go to that.

If that's too complicated, when was the last time you overreacted? Over what?

How do I break the news to my parents that I have a new hairstyle?

Seriously, I absolutely hate getting complimented on my looks, but if someone does I'll say thanks and move on with my life. But my parents have to go way the hell overboard. They KNOW I hate compliments but this just makes them go even crazier. Every single time I wear a shirt they've never seen before they have to freak out.

Them: OMG where'd you get that shirt?!?!?!?!?!?
Me: Uh, Gap.
Them: It's so pretty! You look so pretty in it! Wow, I can't believe it!
Me: Thanks.
Them: No, I'm serious, I really like it.
Me: Okay.
Me: OKAYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!

Do your parents do this? I'm actually dreading them seeing a picture of me and am going to purposely not put pictures of myself on the Internet for them to see until they visit me.
