for those of you (all two of you) who were interested in how my *internet first date* went....... he was super cute and it was GREAT and i cannot wait to hit that shit. oh and he didnt smell bad and i didnt notice any majors teeth problems. the only thing was he had a really dorky voice....... like he should do voice overs for nerds in cartoons or something, and he kind of had a lisp and talked a little like a deaf person.

anyway, i have a question so wev

WHO IS BETTER IN BED IN GENERAL: super hot people who know theyre hot or super/sort of dorky people who dont think theyre all that???

(my answer: the latter. every time.)

Is it sex if a person penetrates, with clothes, a hip into another person's crotch accidentally?

If so, can the person whose crotch was penetrated with the other person's hip donate blood if the person who penetrated the other person's crotch with his crotch cannot donate blood because he's had the man sex before?

A friend of mine wanted me to ask.

ETA: Non srs answers only.

ETA x2: Is it okay is best friends occasionally make out and engage in light bondage?

Dear TQC,

I'm having a debate with my friend. He says having anal sex doesn't count as losing your virginity (for the sake of the argument, the sexing is happening between a straight girl and a straight guy). I say he's wrong. What's your opinion? 

Unrelated questions:

If you could pick a song to sum up your life what would it be? You can share the lyrics if you wish!

Mine is Sober by P!nk

I don't wanna be the girl who has to fill the silence...
The quiet scares me 'cause it screams the truth
Please don't tell me that we had that conversation
When I won't remember, save your breath, 'cause what's the use?

Aahh, the night is calling
And it whispers to me softly, "come and play"
Aahh, I am falling
And if I let myself go, I'm the only one to blame

I'm safe
Up high
Nothing can touch me
But why do I feel this party's over?
No pain
You're like perfection
But how do I feel this good sober?

Have you had comments on Facebook mysteriously disappear? Or am I being lied to?

Meaning I was reading my wall-to-wall with somebody and my comments from his wall were gone but his were still on mine so it was displaying like half a conversation on our wall-to-wall. He said that Facebook must have glitched and lost them and that that happened to him with someone else too, saying it's weird.

I don't use facebook very often so I don't know if this can really happen or not?

What says TQC? Suspicious or glitchy?

Yesterday I received a warning in the mail from the city council because I failed to vote in some election held in November. I have no idea what the election was for.

Away, I need to give a detailed explanation on the back of the paper explaining why I wasn't there. Or I will be fined.

So tqc, what was I doing on November 29th that was clearly more important then voting for god knows what?


last night I had to call the police for the first time ever and it was really scary but also pretty lame. They didn't even come.

Have you ever had to call the cops? What for? Did they show up for you?

Voting is mandatory in Australia. I am in Australia.

My sister and her family live downstairs from me, my mom and dad.
My mom ends up babysitting at some point, every day.
I don't really offer to babysit because I don't really know what the hell I'm doing, but I will help my mom every so often when she has the baby.

I feel SO guilty about this though.
Should I just grow up and babysit?
Is it terrible that I don't offer?

My dad's half-brother died yesterday. Neither my dad nor I had seen him in about six years, although my dad spoke with his children sporadically. I know I should call to offer my condolences, but I haven't seen any of his children (who are all 30-40 years old) in several years. What do I say to them?

If it makes a difference, I'm in DC and they're all in Detroit.

My husband backed out of getting movers at the last second. The truck place was a hassle, the day we moved all our stuff from one house to the next it rained between 1-2 inches, today we're supposed to put all our seasonal crap under the house and it's fucking sleeting in Atlanta in March (oh, but maybe it'll stop before he gets home since he has the luxury of having to work today so I get to unpack by myself). Yesterday was our five year anniversary - why didn't he just man up and tell me he doesn't love me anymore instead of putting me through all this?!

rosetta stone

i'm sure there's somebody here who's at least had some experience with rosetta stone. my mom and i are interested in becoming more acquainted with spanish, and since ppl here tend to like answering questions... i'd like to pick the collective brain of tqc.

1) what language rosetta stone did you use, and did you have any prior experience with the language? if so, was that experience from formal classroom teaching or your own learning?

2) do you think your language skills improved over the course of using it? (listening comprehension, reading comprehension, speaking ability, etc.)

3) what did you think of the software itself and the way it works?

4) when you used the software, did you use it exclusively or did you supplement your learning with other experiences in the language?

thanks in advance :)

I seem to not be able to operate simple headphones. Whenever I use headphones the sound either sounds f-ed up or comes out in mono instead of stereo or something. With my latest pair of headphones it couldn't have possibly been anything I did, either, because immediately after opening them I plugged them into my computer and started playing music and it still sounded horrible.

Is it possible that part of this problem is that I buy really cheap headphones because they never work for me so I don't want to spend much money on them? Is it too much of me to expect a cheap pair of headphones to play stereo sound? If I buy a more expensive pair is the same thing going to happen because I apparently have headphone-killing genes?


so yesterday i picked up the stuff id need for  fruit smoothies. i totally forgot about yogurt. if i make a smoothie with just milk and not yogurt, will it be crap?

I tried to ask this earlier in tqc_drunks ; but I was a little too drunk. I've sobered up (enough to type properly) now. So:

Do you find that different types of alcohol affect your mood? For example, when I drink gin, I become really depressed (to the point of tears) and quite slutty. When I drink vodka, I get bitchy and pick fights with people. When I drink wine, I start craving snuggles. Do you find this as well? With what kinds of alcohol?
