The vaugest question ever:

So. Scouring the internet has failed me, so I thought I'd bring my search to the good folks of this community.

I'm looking for a specific Japanese singer. While I was studying abroad in China, my Japanese roommate listened to her all the time, and I quite liked it, but I have no idea who it was.

So - a female Japanese solo singer, more rock than pop but definitely not full out rock. It would probably be considered pop in the US, but it's not the uber-cutsey pop one sometimes hears from Japanese music.

Can anyone help me even begin to narrow down the list of possibilities or direct me to a forum somewhere with people who might know somethign?

if you were on a date with someone and they said, 'i have a really cute dog at home, you look just like her!', would you be offended/pissed off?

i wouldn't really care. a dog is just an animal. it wasn't an insult. idk, my mom is arguing with me that 'women don't want to look like cute dogs' and 'who wants to date their pet?! that's fucked up'. it wouldn't bother me though.

Lately I've been having this issue with Google. When I search for something and try to click the Wikipedia link for it, it takes forever to load and then doesn't go to Wikipedia -- it goes to a commercial site or full-page ad or something, like YellowPages.com. This doesn't happen when I right-click and copy the Wikipedia address, only when I redirect from Google.

Is this happening to anyone else? Does anyone know WHY? It's really annoying.

Adventure Day

My best friend and I have started having Adventure Day once a week and we can't think of anything to do this week. We use the term adventure loosely because last week we only drove (over an hour) to get slushes from Sonic. What should we do tomorrow for Adventure Day?

We live in Western NJ and the weather is going to be sunny and around 40 degrees if that's of any help. Also, as fun as it sounds, the winter tour of Eastern State Penitentiary is out. I would pass out from fear even in broad daylight.

Heya, TQC!

Do you have acne? If so, how bad is it and how do you treat it?

I've had cystic acne since I was 12-13 and after going to the dermatologist for SEVEN YEARS it's just recently started clearing up, even after eight months of isotretinoin (Accutane). I still don't think the drugs helped anything (though I've used pretty much everything they have to offer); by this time I'm probably just growing out of it naturally. Currently I'm on spironalactone, Retin-A Micro, and a topical antibiotic foam. I've pretty much lost all faith in dermatologists.

Alternately, what's your favorite hymn, if you have one?

Hi.

So.. I'm almost 22. In September.

I haven't gotten my AA yet.
I need to lose weight.
I am in a bit of debt.
I don't have plans of moving out yet.
I've never been in a relationship.
I don't really know how realistic my career plans are, or how to get started.
(Working in Public Relations for the entertainment industry)

All in all, I pretty much suck at life.


How can I get over this?
How can I motivate myself to get shit done? How do you do it?

Any words of wisdom to share?

On Big Love, one of the characters is driving in a truck with her braid stuck in the door. She hits a pole and her neck snaps because of the braid situation. I don't even wear braids usually but I have long hair so now I keep triple checking that it's not stuck in the door.

I just squished a huge spider what was making its way towards the bed. I loathe spiders. If I find one in the house, it's a goner. However, almost everything else, beetles, moths, crickets, etc, I will carefully scoop up and free it outside.

So, the questions are;

When you find bugs indoors, do you kill all of them or give some a pass while killing others?

If you give them a pass, which bugs do you give a pass to?

And what the last bug you found crawling around your place?

Dear Dr. TQC,
I'm coming down with some sort of illness. I'm pretty sure it's just a basic cold or strep throat so I've been loading up on Vitamin C rich food the past few days to kill it asap. That's taken care of most of the symptoms. However, my nose is having problems. It's been producing a lot of mucus and keeping me from getting a good night's sleep. I've been sleeping propped up and coincidentally breathing through my mouth and during the day time I've been using saline spray. Still, the snot stays all lodged up in my sinus's and won't come out, damn it. I wake up frequently through out the night unable to breathe because my mouth is dry and my nose is stuffed.
What can I do to my nose so I can sleep? :(
Thank yooooou.

Would you ever consider going in on the purchase of a multi-family unit with, well, family? For instance, purchasing a 2-3 family unit and living in one unit with your spouse/kids, your sibling living in the other with his/her spouse/kids, and your parents living in the other unit? They would all be completely separate units with individual doors, but obviously attached in one building. Imagine that it would also make everyone's commute much easier as everyone works in the same city and that it is impossible to buy an individual home that is affordable in this particular area.

Alaska

Anyone go to the University of Alaska or have gone there? It doesn't matter which one. Pros, cons? I was thinking of transferring up there to finish my Zoology major or I just might go up there for grad school.
I realize I might sound crazy to go to school there, but from what I've researched they have a really good wildlife biology program there and people are generally in doors there most of the time.

Also anyone who lives there, or has in the past or even visited there would be nice to know some stuff about the state.

Bring on the cheeseeee!

It's my brother's birthday today, and I'm cheap, but I came up with a cute idea. I'm giving him two pictures: one of him and my son in the hospital when my son was born, and another of the two of them taken a few weeks ago. I want to include a poem/saying/something cute and cheesy to tie them both together and I have massive writers block today.

Anyone know of anything? Or any cool sites? I've looked but haven't found anything yet.

Songs

I'm making a CD for my church party tonight, it's birthday party themed (happy, bubbly and silly) Because it's for my church, the songs not only need to be swear-free, but can't allude to sex, drugs, or anything that would make a grandma blush. After looking through all my music, I've realized I have exactly 12 songs that fit those stipulations. (and 7 of those are rock-n-rollfied hymns.) What songs would 20something through 80somethings all enjoy? Is it possible to please everyone or should I hope the older ladies are just too deaf to hear all the words?

But you aren't supposed to know the information that led you to know that it is just a misunderstanding and you were told to never speak of it. How do you deal with the guilt of not being able to help? You wouldn't tell them, would you? I'm so torn.

For those with biology knowledge...

Are there any cells in my body that still would have been in my body when i was 20 years younger? I'm talking about cells that have not been regenerated and replaced.

It is my understanding that the cells which make up my body today are completely different (different in the sense that they are not the exact same cell which has remained alive for the entire period) to the cells which comprised my body 20 years ago due to cell regeneration.

If this is correct, then which cells take the longest to replicate? Im using 20 years as an example, but what is the real figure?
If this is not correct, then which cells do not die?

Could you deliver more force with your strongest punch, or your strongest elbow?

Not taking into account real life fighting circumstances. Im talking about if you had a dummy in front of you capable of measuring force, and you could take your best shot, would your elbow or punch be harder?

I would go for the elbow. A surprising number of people i know say punch though.

-----------Edit
Here's my logic for the elbow...

When you deliver a punch, your elbow isnt locked straight so when the punch connects, your elbow is going to bend a bit and take some of the force.

The other thing is that the force of the punch mostly comes from the body (putting your weight into it). That force travels down your arm to your fist. It make sense that using a shorter object from the source (the body and upper arm) would deliver more impact (i.e. an elbow)

I think I'm going to have to pick a roommate for next semester in a few hours. I don't know anyone I can room with. (I'm in a smaller room selection group, since they're putting all study abroad people in one dorm, and I don't know anyone else studying abroad.) I have a crappy room-lottery number and will be picking my room very close to the end, so anyone who doesn't have a roommate at that point is "up for grabs." I will probably choose based on names, since all rooms are more or less created equal.

Are there any names I you think I should avoid? (For instance, my friend had roommate troubles with a girl named Helen, so she would recommend that I avoid rooming with people named Helen.)

Should I go for someone with a short name or a long name? Lots of vowels or few vowels?

Do you ever think that people in a particular party don't necessarily agree with their party's stance on some issues, but they go along with it because it feels nice to be part of a group?

It's just that you so rarely see anyone (talking about American politics now) strike a real opinion against something their party stands for, or even when some idiot in their party goes around acting like an idiot, they don't say anything about it. To me, it seems as if they/we have all gotten so used to saying "I am this! And those other people suck!" that your real identity becomes secondary. Groupthink, anyone?
