Did any of you attend Villanova University? What was your major? How'd that go?
Or... does anyone know anything about Villanova as a college? Is it good? Would going there majoring in English/Theater be a good idea? I've read up on a few things and I found that Villanova is very popular for its Business/Law/Engineering, but... not so much English.
Do you have any other college suggestions for me as an English/Theater major? :D In the United States, pls. What are the top ranked colleges for English majors? o.o
Tomorrow I am flying from the US to the UK. I want to bring a 24 oz can of Bud Lite to the person I am visiting.
If I put it in my checked bag, will the can burst? (I am keeping in my that the bag area of the plane is not pressurized.)
If I put it in my carry on, I am worried that they will ID me (I am 20), but I think it's mildly unlikely.
The other thing about putting it in my carry on is the fact that it is 24oz worth of liquid and airlines are super strict. Will it matter even if it is unopened?
Last question. Can you mail beer?
do you wear glasses or contact lenses?
if you wear contacts, do you...
If that does not excite you, which eye color do you consider to be the sexiest? the ugliest? if you could have any fantasy eye color (gold, purple, etc) - which would it be?
do you prefer when people post their answers to their questions when they write them on TQC, or not?
ETA: how is it that more people are leaving in/taking out their contacts than are actually WEARING them?
What about drool?
I've taken Ambien and all the OTC sleep meds. Sometimes they work, other times they don't.
My husband can zonk out within 10 minutes of hitting the pillow. Meanwhile I'm up on the 'puter for hours.
Sorry if I'm rambling 'cause HEY MY MIND IS CABBAGE from not sleeping.
So, TQC, how can a girl get some damn sleep around here?
How do you feel about post/thread hijacking?
Have you ever worn nipple tassles? If so, how did they make you feel?
By which I mean, in your dreams do you remember things from previous dreams? Like, clothes you owned in a previous dream, or a place you visited but that doesn't exist in real life, etc.
Mine does. I find it fascinating and rather wonderful.
Before, when I wanted to comment on an entry or make a reply to a user, there would be a dropdown box, on the same page. Now LJ opens a new page to make the comment/reply. I want my same-page dropdown box back!
1. Do you have a recurring method of self defense in your dreams? What is it?
2. Have you ever killed anyone in your dreams?
3. When/what was your last nightmare?
4. Would stabbing someone in the eye really be a good idea? Would it be easy to do? Effective?
OR ANY PICTURE YOU WANT. NEED MORE PICS.
EDIT: I forgot to mention, I'm still in high school. I mean, when colleges are choosing who to accept into their college, do they look at your attendance during high school? I'm in sophomore year.
And I mean car tires, btw.
Also, what's the best kind of potato chip?
I was coming back from an interview at the Cordon Bleu in Hollywood last December when I took a wrong turn trying to get back to the freeway. I did some maneuvering and ended up near Macarthur Park - where I promptly drove into a major pothole I didn't see until it was too late to avoid it. The impact was kind of horrible, and my car was listing badly to the right afterwards, so I pulled into a sidestreet - where two cops were busy handcuffing some guy - as soon as I could to check the damage, and yeah: my front right tire was basically pulverised. I was so tired/stressed out that I went back into the car and cried for a good five minutes because it hadn't occurred to me yet that I was a AAA member and thought I would have to change the tire on my own, which I (stupidly) hadn't learned to do yet, let alone without help. But then I remembered and called the Auto Club and they sent out a guy pretty quickly and all was well.
Salt & Vinegar Kettle Chips!
What was the last surprise you experienced or witnessed?
What do you do for money?
What do you like to do for fun?
What would you like to be one day??
Think of this as foreplay.
plus, honesty time. do you think TQC is majorly for people who don't have close enough friends to ask some of the more personal questions?
Have you read House of Leaves? I finished it on a plane last night.
The other tab I have open in my firefox browser is Amazon, and I'm looking for some new books as I've devoured all the ones I currently own. Aside from beginning on House again, I'm looking for some other ideas. What say you?
Unrelated: Do you like your bed? It's generally assumed somebody will be more comfortable and sleep better in their own bed, but last night I realized that I truly love my bed. It's not a fancy bed by any means, and it's really not special, but after spending evenings on a nice but unfamiliar bed, I truly appreciate how much I love mine. Are you more comfortable in yours than others, or do you not really care too much?
I enjoy the feeling of being surrounded by tons of blankets and being wrapped up like a taco. In fact, it's the only way I'll sleep. Sheets don't count. I need a proper blanket or I'm not sleeping for a few hours.
Do any of you have weird quirks about beds/sleeping/blankets/whatever?
2)My whole body hurts. validate me in buying breakfast please.
What do you recommend I put on a business card? I have a link to a site, an email, and maybe a cell phone number. Anything else?
Um. Nvm. I'm a dumbass. =X
What's the fucking weather like where you are?
IT'S FUCKING... ALRIGHT
Everything's nice butter weather!
If you were born after 1973, does your SSN fall within the states as listed on this website? Mine doesn't, and instead of calling my mom to ask why, I'll puzzle over it and ask pointless questions on TQC.
2. I have a little extra money. Should I spend it on frivolities or save it to get my car fixed eventually (cosmetic work)?
also, anyone here attempted a water fast? can you tell me about it? I've been doing some research, and I figure that may be a good run at detoxing for after I quit..
I ask because my sister and I share all the TMI in the world and I was telling some one that today and he thought it was weird. IS IT WEIRD??
And to continue the theme... want to share some TMI? ;)
2. Did you used to watch David the Gnome? Wasn't it an awesome show?
3. What shampoo and soap do you use?
Who's better, Adam Savage or Jamie Hyneman?
If you had to pick the destroyer of your world à la Ghostbusters (and the Stay Puft Marsmallow Man), what would you decide on?
Adam Savage. I love Jamie and his walrus moustache + very dry sense of humour, but Adam would be so fun to goof around/geek out/blow stuff up with.
I have absolutely no idea, haha.
I didn't tell anyone.
What's your favorite colour combination? Mine is purple/green and black/red.
What did you major in? What did you do (for a job) after you graduated? Did you get to use your degree?
For those of you who are currently attending college...
What are you majoring in? What are you planning/hoping to do (for a job) after you graduate?
When did you first learn about death and how?
Can you cook?
Do you cook?
If you moved to a different country all alone, and this country had all different foods and shops, would you survive?

Apparently I CAN cook and I just have a warped deffinition of what 'cooking' actually is...
Kids are named whatever fool thing comes into their parent's heads, often influenced by what relatives or friends were named.
2)A typical name in your area?
Michael, Jason, Montavious, DaShaun and of course, the aidens, jaidens, etcs.
How often do you NOT have it with you?
Do you intentionally ignore phone calls or texts? Does it depend on who it's from, or your mood at the moment?
How would I go about doing this? I'm thinking the local health board/health department
Are you in pain right now? Want to cry with me?
Or if you don't care,
Has anything exciting or interesting happen to you recently? Do you care to share it with the class?
If none, then what ideologies/beliefs do you believe in strongly enough to be imprisoned for/die for? Why?
EDIT: What if there is NO guarantee that it will improve the situation? What if it will make NO DIFFERENCE in regaining those rights again? To paraphrase: are you saying that it's better to be dead/in prison than live in a society where those rights (whatever you chose) are lacking?
How do they bill you? Is it a flat rate or do you get billed more if you use the internet more?
I already have an AT&T contract for a normal cell phone. If I get an iPhone, can I just pop my sim card in it and will it work with all the features, or do I have to call AT&T to upgrade my account?
in large print numbers. I couldn't figure out what the large numbers were as I followed them across the bridge and all the way to the other side of the school where it actually started at 3.141592653.....
Have you ever seen anything similar to this in any way?
Do you think it was supposed to be funny?
How many people actually do you think understood what it was?
1) what are your favourite dogs? pictures?
2) what are you doing today?
3) how do you like your tea?
4) how many people have you had a relationship with? had sex with? & loved?
will you give me an explanation for this fuckery?
edit: ya nobody's vandalizing the bus shelters or sleeping in them. i live in cookie cutter la la land, lol. the homeless ex-cons and drunk teenagers are about 4km/2 miles away. could very well be a maintenance $$$ issue though.

*i have not changed my license and thus my official address because i need to clear up some issues with my license before i can do that, for which i need to be back in jersey. no illegal issues, just stupid ones.
if you don't care, have you ever been to an international/foreign grocery store? what's your favorite thing to purchase? i just went to a little international grocery and got thai tea and brazilian candy. word of advice, avoid the vietnamese "sweet rice candy".

My doctor's appointment isn't until Thursday.
In spite of the fact that I've already been in a relationship, I've begun dating someone else (their best friend, no less), and we're already planning many romantic outings for the end of the week. However, I did not catch the crabs from this person - I only noticed it roughly a week ago- and we only barely began getting "hot and heavy" after, although not to the point where either or our clothes came off. But they did feel up my leg for hours on end, even practically reaching in VERY close proximity to my crab-filled pubes before I shaved them off. And of course, jacked me off (sorry if this is TMI).
I don't want to tell them and jeopardize my romance!
But I also do not want to make out with them after getting ridding of crabs, if they caught it from me and I will get it back.
But they may think I'm sleazy and a slut, especially seeing as we met via me dating their best friend who I'm still "allegedly" in a relationship with!
Do I tell them I have crabs or do I not? And what would perhaps be the best way of letting them know?

First post, woo!
I need your help, TQC!
I work as shop manager at a tattoo parlor here in lovely Charlotte, NC. After checking customers in, filling out paperwork and assisting to jewelry, I often find myself with copious amounts of free time ( I work 10 to 12 hour days) . I've checked out a few communities like this one, too_much_info, wtf_inc and the like but they are getting boring.
What can I do to amuse myself in these long bouts between dealing with idiots that don't know anything about tattoos?
Books, crochet, crafts, games, I just don't know! Television and movies aren't really a good idea because I'm usually interrupted every five minutes or so to answer a question or get the telephone.
i put a gold rimmed plate in earlier :S
* state, province, equivalent division of country
OBV MINE IS RULE 39
it's usually food (red sauce of some kind) or pen.
are you ever excited or pleased when people you don't like get annoyed or overwhelmed?
are there any TV shows you like so much that you won't do anything else when they're on, even if you (can) DVR the show?
if you have an SO, do you like his/her parents? do they like you?
Who did / (would have) you vote(d) for and why?
What color do you paint your nails / toenails most often?
(You know, the one who always has a story that's more happy/sad/tragic/funny/etc than the one you just told? If you just got dumped, well, they got dumped ... on their birthday ... after the ex ran over their dog ... and they found out they have an incurable disease ... and they broke a nail/their football team lost a game.)
If so, how do you deal with these people? Preferably without burning any bridges.
Unfortunately for me, this person is my mother. If I say I had a long day at work, I get a twenty minute diatribe about how much worse her day is. If my boyfriend does something sweet for me, hers did something that was just OMG SO ROMANTIC AND I MUST TELL YOU ABOUT IT RIGHT NOW. If my kids act like hooligans, it's a twofer - me and my siblings were always MUCH WORSE, and furthermore, she was MUCH BETTER at parenting than me. I'd like to just, I dunno, never talk to her again, but we live in the same town, so this is sort of difficult.
Which of these are acceptable utterances during phonesex?
Speeding? A light out?
Did you get points on your license or pay a huge ass fine?

Is allowing grocery stores to sell wine a good or bad thing, in a place where this was previously not allowed?
eta: Apparently it wasn't previously allowed in NY but now I'm supposed to write my govermentrepresentativeperson in support of it. I completely don't get it.
i recently got a few goldfish with my roommates. i've never had pet fish before and know next to nothing about caring for them. i feed them once a day, change their water whenever it's needed, and uh, that's about it.
i noticed today that Big Orange's tail/spine is somewhat bent. i don't know if this is new or if i had just never noticed it before. he's also swimming somewhat crookedly. what's wrong with him? also, i've changed the water about three times in the past six hours, but the fish are still swimming near the top (i'm assuming this is because the water doesn't have enough oxygen). usually the water only needs to be changed about once a day and they'll be fine. what do i do?
WILL MY FISH BE OKAY? D:
Earlier I put on this foundation sample I got from a magazine, purely because I know that it's too orange for me and i'd end up looking silly (:
edit: we all make mistakes sometimes, people.
EDIT: the business is advertising and their concern is that you would steal customers to take with you/obtain a copy of the ~secret~ rates list to share with your new boss. Also, it would be easy for a boss to find out their employee is interviewing with similar company because at least one person from each paper inter-mingles with others in the other papers. Is this all too confusing or what
How many of those could you forego?

What's your favorite midnight snack?
my guess is boring shit, like the testing of advanced military weapons along. BUT THAT'S NOT THE POINT!
So here I am, toying with various super cool ideas. I am sick of all the government secrecy bullsh!t and decided that it's time to make a point. Our government is built to be run by the people, for the people. Area 51 will be the first of many places us, the owners, will visit. I am devising a plan to get hundreds of people together, armed with various supplies (camcorders, bolt cutters, rope, etc), and together we are going to walk our way into area 51. We will not be stopped. We will cut, climb, dig our way into the place. If we are shot (and for what? for trespassing on gov't land? lets not forget that WE own the government), it will only cause further uprising. Who's with me!?!
(you gotta admit, it'd be pretty cool)
2. If yes, did you enjoy the experience?
3. Would you say that you are culinarily adventurous?
YES, I will eat anything. I'm a trash compactor.
4. Did your family cook a variety of foods when you were younger?
Yes. I feel sorry for people who list potato as their favorite vegetable and I cringe at the though of eating a peanut butter sandwich every day or week.
Do you think there are more males or females on livejournal ? Why is that ?
I was in Starbucks one day and accidentally ordered the wrong drink and the barista remade it for me and gave me the other one for free. Then he went to the restaurant next door to get a cup holder even though I said I could have done it. I tipped them because I was like "I don't want to end up being talked about on baristas or customers_suck
please answer yes or not to the questions (except for your age of course)
Do you have a tattoo:
Do you think tattoos enhance a person's appearance:
Do you think tattoos make a person look worse:
Would you ever get a tattoo:
Thank you so much!
If different, what is the last word that you defined for a native English speaker?
Today I explained what "grovel" meant to a foreigner, and the other day a person who does not frequent Starbucks asked me "what is that word you keep saying?" when I was talking about a barista, so I defined it.
It has done this, to the best of my knowledge, for the entirety of my 25 years of life, and did so before we moved here. It also only does it at night. It's the most high-tech early-80's device I touch every day.
When will it burn out? More importantly, would it be ill-advised for me to take it apart to see what is making it glow and whether I can steal the timer and/or lighting mechanism for my electronics tinkering project?
As his girlfriend, what would you do or think? Would you be appreciative of him "standing up" for you? Or would you think the opposite?
I'd like the hear men voice their opinion too, would you ever beat up a guy to that extent for calling your girlfriend trailer trash?
ETA: I'm glad you're all on the same page as me haha. If my boyfriend ever got that violent over something relatively minor, when he could have reacted in a much more civilized manner...it would shock me and make me wonder about his temper and anger management abilities.
The girlfriend involved does not think this, I'm pretty sure she's flattered and reveling in the fact that he's not going to get in one bit of trouble.

What makes them annoying?
Fat free black cherry frozen yogurt, 4 strawberries, a cup of vanilla soy milk, ice
If you said smoothie, which determined your answer?
If you said milkshake, which determined your answer?
If you said smoothie, would it be different if the frozen yogurt was chocolate (if it still had strawberries in it)?
If you said smoothie, would you change your mind if I took out the strawberries?
If you said milkshake, and the yogurt was regular instead of frozen, would you change your answer to smoothie?
What is your favorite documentry?
This is not for homework btw.
ETA: It's for a lengthy lj entry I'm writing about a film I watched critiquing the gender politics of the hip hop industry, and I need to use the N word as an example of derogatory terms men use to refer to one another.
