Inspired by harmnotourqueen 's question, have you ever bought cigarettes online? From where? Stories/how was the process? Cigarettes are supposed to be like $7/pack soon...and I don't even live in a big city. So I'm hoping to find a reliable website to purchase them from instead.

My husband just revealed the fact that he thinks my ire at the pope's anti-condom stance for a region torn apart by overpopulation and AIDS is totally uncalled for. When I mentioned that it upsets me because it's such a huge humanitarian issue, his response was:

"Humanitarian issues are reserved for humans...not chimpanzees running around in the jungle."

Should I shoot him, y/y? >:(

My computer is having ~*issues*~. It's been picking up viruses lately at least once a week. I've switched to using Firefox, installed 5 different security programs, I don't click random links or open E-Mails with attachments, and hell, the skeeziest website I ever visit is IMDB, which is not often. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but apparently it's SOMETHING. My problem is I really need this computer to be secure for work. So.

Any suggestions on how to stop getting adware and trojans and where I might be getting them?

But really, should I consider investing in a Macbook and leaving the PC as a strictly work-only machine? My job pays pretty well. I can technically afford it within a month or two, probably less if I really scrimp. Does anyone have experience with macbooks and can you help reassure me that it won't suck as hard as the mac I owned once, which liked to randomly turn the screen yellow-tinted monochrome, couldn't run more than 2 programs at once, and killed itself less than a year after I bought it?

In November I bought a new wool pea coat. A few days later gin & tonic and beer were spilled all over it. I put it away and wore a different coat all winter. I just took it out and it still smells pretty bad.

I'm afraid the smell will never go away.

I have found my (used) dream car at an amazing price with amazingly low miles and a grrrreat warranty on it.

The problem is that it's $42 a month over the budget I wanted to keep for a car payment.

I could probably haggle some, but it's not going to be for that big a drop.

After a girl presented something to my class wearing heels yesterday, my male professor's (in a class of all girls) critique went:
"Not to be sexist, but your heels are incredibly distracting. Students will find those distracting. Women don't realize that you can't be clomping around the classroom."
(We did not find her distracting at all, honestly)


...Is this as sexist as it seemed at the time?
Is this something we can report him for?

...would you drive an old white van and park in front of a grade school when it's letting out? The van has CANDY written on the side by a Sharpie, and has 2 bumper stickers: I brake for little girls and Honk if you like 'em young. When you park, you'll step out of the van and dangle hard candies and wave at the little kids in front of their parents. The whole time, you'll be blaring Oingo Boingo's 'Little girls' on the tape deck and enduring the dirty looks and vehemence by the parents. If approached, ignore all remarks and just ask if they're looking for a babysitter, that you'll do it for free if the kid's cute enough.

You just have to stay there for 10 minutes and you can wear a disguise if you want.

Does anyone else have an issue with war games (Call of Duty, etc)?  I'm not talking about fictional war but games based of of WWI, WWII and the like.  I'm not even sure how to explain why I find them to be so uncomfortable.  I guess it's because I find it wrong that they are making entertainment out of real life human suffering.  War movies also strike a wrong cord with me for these reasons...and the propaganda associated with them.  I don't know, does anyone else feel the same way? Whenever I bring it up with my friends, they always don't seem to understand why I have a problem.

TQC, I have a dilemma!

I have 2 jobs. 1 is at Wal-Mart, part-time. The 2nd is as a bookkeeper for a construction company, starting out part-time, only 2 days a week.

I don't start either until next week.

Should I say to hell with the Wal-Mart job? I was contemplating working it until the bookkeeping thing turns into a full time job...but then again the bookkeeping thing pays $2.05/hr more than Wal-Mart.

What should I do to celebrate the new bookkeeping job?

My awesome father-in-law has offered to buy me a new camera, but I have to keep it around the $200 range. I was looking last night at Sam's Club and found 2 that I like..if you had to choose between a Kodak EasyShare or a Nikon, which would you pick?

Job Help/Question

Ok, so I went for a job interview on Monday, and it went really well. The woman said she just had to call and check my refrences, do a write up on it for HR, and then they'd be able to hire me. I emailed her thanking for her time and for the interview, etc. etc. as soon as I got home. She still hasn't called me refrences yet, and I'm kinda getting nervous...I REALLY want this job. SO while TODAY, I think it's too soon to call...when would be ok to call and follow up? Or it wouldn't be? I'm thinking Monday, but maybe that's too long? Maybe Friday? HELP! I really, really, NEED and WANT this job. :(

Forgive me being so clueless, but I haven't worked in a long time, and this is really important to me.

Hi TQC!

A friend of mine went voluntarily to a psychiatric station and is now staying there a couple of days. I want to visit her tomorrow morning. What should I bring her?

Serious and non serious answers are welcomed =) Please consider that I'd like her to feel a bit better and supported.

EDIT: She just wrote and is leaving the ward in a couple of hours... she only needs to go to the hospital daily (maybe to get some meds?). So... TQC,

If your bf/gf was to visit you today to drink some coffee, what would you ask them to bring you?
I asked my bf for some oreo cookies =) They don't have them often in Germany so I like him bringing them to me when he visits this special supermarket.

How good are you at suspension of disbelief?

Like, when I watch a movie/TV show I don't think of sets, costumes, actors, special effects (unless they're really bad), etc, I just see it as the story playing out. I do however have a lot of trouble letting little plot holes go. I went to see The Last House on the Left remake last night and kept finding myself thinking "What are these people going to tell the cops?" I wonder this a lot when watching horror/action movies.

Which leads me to my second question. I heard a story about a man who was robbed at knifepoint by three men. He was carrying a gun and fatally shot the first man, and then the second. The first was considered to be self-defense, but the jury pretty much let the other murder go, essentially because the guy deserved it. (I can't back this up with a news story, so if anyone else has a similar example that'd be great.)

In a morally ambiguous situation like this, what should the law do? Is it okay to murder someone just because they were doing something wrong, or in the case of Last House on the Left, torture and brutally kill people who tortured and brutally killed someone else?
:)

looking for a movie title..

I'm fuzzy on details, but the best info I can give are these..

The movie is about a magician.
He was banished from his town at some point in his movie. Or he was in hiding, one of those.
He had a secret clone machine. He used this machine during his magic acts, cloning himself and then killing and drowning the clone during his act.
There was a scene with many "cloned" top hats. And I think one cloned black cat.

Any ideas?

i work in an admin. building on my college campus, and am one of the few students there, most of the employees are middle age women. Here's something odd i've been observing for over the past months i've been here:

The majority of these ladies are on weight watchers or some fad diet of the week, and at least once every two weeks they have a staff party of sorts at lunch/break time for random occasions (birthdays, retirements, holidays, etc.).

At these fiestas, they always have the MOST unhealthy, fattening and caloric foods, which leads to ALL of them talking ALL DAY about how guilty they are for eating it due to their respective diet plans. what do they keep doing this though? it seems so contradictory. do they secretly all love this food and feel like it's okay if they announce how guily they are and how many points each thing is?


so odd. thoughts?

Is it weird to call/text your ex-boyfriend three days after YOU broke up with HIM to ask how he is doing?

He doesn't go to my school, we don't work together, so we have to call to see each other and check up.

ETA: When I broke up with him, I told him I'd call him in a few days or a week. I am not trying to kick him when he is down, I just actually really care about him. I broke up with him because I felt like our relationship and level of commitment (serious) was too hard for how different we are, the different lives we live (he is 10 years older than me, I am in college about to graduate, etc.) We agreed to remain friends and still see each other... I would just like to talk to him that is all. (I do miss him a little bit).

Inspired by the previous post. Do you think, during a murder trial, the victim's accomplishments/status in life should impact the weight of defendant's sentence? Before you answer, think honestly about what difference the following variables would make in your decision: if the victim was a 35-year-old mother of three, would you impose a harsher sentence than if the victim was a homeless alcoholic with no family?

I ask because most people will claim that it doesn't make any difference, one human life is worth as much as the next.  But the reality is that statistically (and I don't have any studies to back this up, so for the sake of argument, let's just assume this is true) the vast majority of people are influenced by the status of the victim.   Does this bother you?

Hey TQC!

So, how do you deal with problems with friends? For example, if they're doing something you really really don't like, or they have some weird personality defect, do you just pretend like it's not happening, or do you confront them about it in some fashion? How honest do you try to be with your friends?

I used to be pretty passive-aggressive and never told my friends when they were getting on my nerves. This always resulted in huge explosions of drama. Nowadays I'm upfront about everything and tell it to 'em straight, and it's still resulting in huge explosions of drama.

I have to leave to take a math test in about an hour. But, the problem is. My professor sucks and half the stuff on the homework (which is done on the internets) wasn't my the book* and she didn't teach us. I am so awful at math it's not even funny. We're not allowed to use calculators because they're ~evil, apparently. I always have a calculator with me. It's called MY PHONE.

Anyways, should I skip it? I know I'll fail because I did on the last test. Which was on my birthday. :(

*Remind me to never buy a used math book again. There are pages missing! Wtf. Should I complain to the bookstore?

I need to go on "a diet" (whatever) soon. What are some foods that will actually keep me full for a few hours?

I find that if I eat healthy/lower calorie foods my stomach starts hurting from hunger after a few hours even though I eat regular meals. For example, if I eat a bowl of bran cereal in the morning I'm hungry just a few hours later. And if I try to quell it with a small but dense snack (nuts and dried fruit or just a piece or two of fruit) that doesn't work. Is there anything that can sustain me that's low in calories or do I just have to wait until my stomach shrinks to stop being hungry?

Also I'm a vegetarian.

Hey guys. I have a dilemma.

My boyfriend's mum has loaned me one of her favourite books to read, and about five chapters in I'm at a point where I absolutely can't continue. Or I could, but I hate returning other people's things all crusted in my vomit.

Now my boyfriend and I have been together for about a year, and I get along really well with his mum. I'd feel bad about lying to her about enjoying her favourite Jilly Cooper title. (I'd feel worse if she lent me the 400 other books she has by the same author.) But on the other hand, I don't want her to get the wrong idea if I tell her I really didn't get into the story. See, I'm kind of a nerd and she knows that, and I'm worried it'll look like I think I'm too smart for what she reads. The last fiction thing I read and enjoyed was Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami. I don't think I'm too smart for it, it's just that glorified, epic romance novels written for bored housewives aren't really my thing. I find it exhausting trying to keep up with who slept with whom and the reasons why so-and-so left her husband for a jockey. This is the phrase that made me put down the book:

With his blond hair even whiter in the moonlight, and his long pale kindly face, Julian looked like the ghost of Abraham Lincoln who'd had a premonition he was about to be assassinated.

Anyway, I don't want to offend any fans of Ms. Cooper's (unfortunately massive) body of work. It's just not my thing. So, has anyone else been in this situation? What did you do? Should I lie and risk being quizzed on the plot, or worse being given more to read? Or should I just come clean and tell her that I didn't like it? It's just that I don't really want to fall out of favour with his mum, because she helps me out all the time and we see each other a lot... It's so much easier when your in-laws like you.

I did ask my boyfriend, and he said he didn't give a shit. Helpful.

I have a dog (a two year old terrier/miniature pinscher mix), and she loathes getting baths. In the past, I've had to bathe her with a towel on the floor and with a cup of water because she hates getting into the tub so much. We don't know why she hates water so much, but it's pretty much always been a struggle to wash her. We've tried nearly everything we could think of (bribing with treats, throwing a towel over her, leading her into the bathroom with a leash on), but she snaps and snarls at us now if we try that. Is there anything that we can do to make her not freak out so much about water? And what's a good way to lure her in for a bath?

Last month my hair stylist canceled my appointment and I wasn't able to reschedule.
I made an appointment today but now I'm thinking of canceling.
Do you think they'll be pissed since I technically canceled twice?

What's more important for a date: fresh hair cut or new pants?

I may have asked this before but I can't find the replies so I'm gonna ask it again!

My friends and I are looking to take a Chinatown bus from Richmond, Va to NYC in April for my birthday.
Have you ever taken one and how was your experience? What bus line do you recommend? Is $60 round-trip the cheapest I'm going to find?


What's for dinner?

TQC, I want to rename my dog. I mean, I know I can just go and delete him. But, I thought it would be good to start off fresh.

My dog loves to eat, bark, poop and ~~*cuddle*~~ with me while we both watch TV. His name is Clover (Rover was just too typical).

Have you ever played Animal Crossing on the Wii? If so, how old are you?

There's a news report going around about the game right now. A policeman has stated that there's no reason for an adult to play the game, and any adult who does is obviously doing it because they're a pedophile. This game uses Wii Speak, which is their version of voice chat. A lot of kids do play, so this cop thinks adults only play because they're sick, twisted bastards.

I'll be 27 in a few weeks, and play with my boyfriend and our daughter. It's actually a lot of fun, and we're definitely not sick and twisted bastards.

Neither

When I say beneficial/detrimental, I'm not thinking of anything in particular. Could be health wise, social wise, etc. I had a discussion about this last night, so D:

How do I go about making a simple, maybe 2-3 page website? Is there some kind of software that makes dinky websites? I have a mac and a pc.

The last time I made a website was using html on Geocities in like 1994, so assume I know nothing. :)

Do you know anyone who believes they always know more than you?
What about someone who always has to tell a better story than one that someone else is telling?
Do you use butter? Or some kind of mysterious spread (like delicious, delicious earth balance)?

What would you think about someone wanting to ban Twilight from public middle school libraries?

Do you think it sends a bad message?

How do you feel about book banning?

I'm actually curious because the person I know suggesting this is very anti-censorship (or so I thought!)
