The guys were talking...

Two of my guy friends were talking tonight about what makes another guy a real friend. One said that there are 3 ways to tell.

1) You would trust him to hold onto any or all of your money with no fear.

2) You really have his back in a fight, even if it means getting royally messed up.

3) You would never go near his girlfriend (or an ex he's not over) no matter what.

Do you think this is accurate? Asking too much/too little?

Have you ever watched or downloaded a pirated movie or broadway musical?

If so, did you do it because you didn't want to pay to see it, or because you honestly couldn't go see it (or another reason)?

It's 3:15am and my husband has a cold. This means he's snoring badly. Should I sleep on the couch, or try and sleep in the bed? Kicking him out of bed isn't an option, since he has to work in the morning so is far more deserving of a comfy bed than I.

For those of you who have fireplaces, how often do you actual utilize your fireplace? And is it gas or woodburning? The only thing I've done is set some candles in there for mood lighting. A woodburning fireplace seems like it'll be too much work.

What flavor of ramen do you like best? Are the 35c packs better than the 18c packs?

Anything exciting happening for you this week?

For the Smokers and the Jews...

1.  So last night when I was doing laundry, I opened the washer and discovered an unopened pack of cigarettes inside.   They'd been in my husband's pocket and I washed them.  They looked fine so I went ahead and ran them through the dryer as well and then put them in his jacket pocket this morning.  TQC, do you think he'll notice?  I used fabric softener and dryer sheets on them so even if they no longer taste good they will be fluffy and not stuck together with static, y/y?  I'm a good wife because I stuck a second, untainted pack of smokes in his glove box so that when he calls me bitching that his cigarettes taste like flowers, I can tell him where the good pack is, right?

2.  Also, how can a banana be un-kosher?  My daughter goes to a Jewish preschool and they are having a luncheon for us today.  They're making lunch in their kosher kitchen and a friend's daughter is allergic to whatever they're serving but they won't allow her to have a banana instead because it can't come from their kitchen and therefore won't be kosher.  Maybe I'm just misunderstanding because we pack the kids'  lunches normally and they can bring anything as long as it's vegetarian and I thought that was because being kosher had to do with meat and dairy products mostly.  I would have always thought that a banana would be kosher unless you wrapped it in bologna and smothered it with cheese.

TQC, does it bother you when someone takes an inside joke the two of you had and apply it to someone else?


One of my best friends and I used to be interested in each other (before I informed him that making a long distance relationship happen when neither of us has time was not on my to do list), and a joke we always had with each other was "Rawr!" for "I love you" based on that whole "rawr is i love you in dinosaur" thing. I just saw the girl he's interested in now leave him a facebook message that said "why yes, rawr is awesome. =)"
I'm not romantically interested in him, as i'm quite happy with my boyfriend, but it just really bothers me that he may have transferred something that was 'ours' to someone new.

Opinions / knowledge of law or rental property guidelines wanted.

Friend A and Friend B got a place together a year ago. A few months ago they faught and had a falling out. Friend A moved out but left all of her stuff in the house and continued to pay rent (with much hassle from the landlord). Their lease is up at the end of March, so Friend B found another place and is moving out tomorrow. She told Friend A last week that she's moving and that Friend A needs to get her stuff moved out ASAP. Friend A has still not come and taken it.

Friend B called Friend A this morning telling her she needs to get it today because tomorrow there will be moving trucks in front of the house and people coming in and out all day. Friend A told her to fuck off. If Friend B does not have the house emptied and in the same condition it was in when she moved in, she loses her Deposit. Friend B refuses to do this on account of Friend A's laziness, so she threatened to put all of her stuff out on the lawn. Friend A threatened to call the cops on her if she did.

If Friend A did call the cops, could Friend B actually be held responsible? What can Friend B do to get the Deposit back if she can't remove Friend A's stuff from the house?

You're grocery shopping and purchase the usual, but you plan on doing some baking, so you grab a bag of flour. Later, you're ready to start baking and a friend is over, and you're about to open up the flour when you notice a large green X on the side. You hadn't noticed this when you put it in your basket. Shrugging, you open it up and it smells unusual. You have your friend smell it and she/he says with a shocked face "That's cocaine. Holy shit, you have a full bag of cocaine!" You figure that maybe someone was using the grocery truck to transport drugs under the guise of ordinary kitchen staples, marking each bag with an X. Someone must have goofed and now you've got a bag of nose candy on your hands.

What do you do with it? Do you try and sell it yourself? Return it to the store? Hand it over to the police? Flush the 'evidence'? Throw a little coke party?

Girls need to grow up and be more independent.

Am I the only one who is happy being single and doesn't need a boy to cling to 24/7?

 

Edit: I guess just to clarify here, I'm not against relationships, I'm fine being single. I'm not bitter about, or lonely. I'm just tired of all my single girl friends who complain to me every day about how much they hate being single. And my friends who are in relationships who come crying to me if they can't see their boyfriend for one day, even though they spent the last 3 weeks every day together. That's all really.

Powder 2

Based off of this question
http://community.livejournal.com/thequestionclub/60308763.html

So, you're about to call the police regarding your unintentional foray into Columbian contraband. You have the phone in hand, when coincidentally (like it often does in the movies), the news happens to flash an update about how there was a bust at that particular supermarket, how it was a drug front. Pretty much, customers would come in and select certain packages with a green X on them and know that inside was coke. These packages were always hidden in the very back of the shelf so that the average customer wouldn't accidentally purchase it by mistake, plus it was a brand of flour that was highly overpriced so most people wouldn't touch it anyway. When checking out, the clerk would mark each purchase of drugs with a certain code and that person would be billed up front for the flour, but would later be given a bill for the coke in the mail. The police say that anyone who purchased the green X'd flour from this store was in on the operation and there would be a criminal investigation done with every person who was found engaged in this drug smuggling front, either as supplier or buyer. "In the war on drugs, there are no innocents found on the side of the dealers", the police chief says in outrage. "We will persecute anyone found guilty in this crime to the full measure of the law...and then some. We will make an example of these lowlifes who had the audacity to peddle their evil under the very noses of ordinary citizens."

You think back and yeah, the flour was kind of expensive at the time, but you were in a hurry and had just grabbed the first bag you found. Someone had obviously moved the bag of coke to the front of the shelf and you just happened to pick it up by accident. You check the receipt and there's no unusual codes found, so you assume the clerk missed the green X, too, and you got away with it scot-free. So, again, you have your bag of drugs and there might be a lot of uncomfortable questions directed your way if you turn it over to the police now, and ignorance might be seen as evasion.

What do you do now?

Is there any way to take smoke out of something? 

We got a stroller no less from a couple who smokes. I didn't know they smoked until the stroller came into the house and it smells strongly of it. I just want to throw it out and get a new one despite it being in perfect condition otherwise and the fact that I'm broke. 

My fiance claims that the smokey smell will go away or we could take it out but I'm not convinced. Even if the smell goes away can't harmful toxins linger in the fabrics?

I recently dropped out of Illinois State University due to depression, and really miss going to school. I'm going to Moraine Valley Community College right now, and my mother's friend said that with an associates degree, you can go to any public state college for a bachelors program, that they have to accept you now.

Is this true? I'd love to go to University of Illinois, and I had the ACT score, just not the greatest grades cos I slacked off in high school a bit. I'm capable of getting very good grades when I try and I'm trying to get the best education I can.

So is it true that if I get an associates degree, I can go to U of I since it's a public state college and they have to accept me?

100% of your RDA of stupid questions

Since we've all been pushed through our mommy's vagina when we were born, every one of us can say we've been inside of a vagina. Because of this logic, none of you women can say you're completely straight, for your default setting would have to be lesbian and at the very least, you're bisexual.

And gay guys, you were in a woman way back when you were born, so your default setting is therefore straight and you've just gotten mixed up over the years.

Does this reclassification of your sexual preference explain anything about your nature?

I work nights, and usually walk home since it's only 15 minutes. Walking is easier than biking. I felt pretty safe in my neighborhood (seems like lots of young families around here), especially if it was before midnight. Lately it's been well after midnight, but I tried not to be worried about it...

...until I heard there were three car break ins and one car theft in my neighborhood recently.

If you were me, a smallish gal who looks like she could be 19, would car thefts be enough to persuade you to not walk home anymore, and to pursue your other options?

Are University of California Santa Barbara or San Diego Graduate school hard to get into? I am looking to get my Ph. D in Marine Biology and California is at the top of my list for what I want to research. But I was wondering if the schools are hard to get into for Grad schools? I will be graduating with a B. S. Honors, are my chances any better? Are there any things that I should be focusing on like getting my research done early or adding more activities and volunteering to my academic record?

And what is life like in the cities? I know that San Diego is tourist infested, but that it's still a good place, but Santa Barbara is better both academically, but very expensive to live there. Can anyone give me any information from personal experience or people they know about SB and SD and the schools and life there? These are between my two choices for what I want to focus my research on and depending on where I get accepted I'll have to mold my life around the place and prepare for it so as much help as you can give me is very much appreciated. Even if it's just a small amount of info like something you found on while you were on vacation.

Which Political Science Class Should I Take?

I know next to nothing about politics and want to learn something about it by taking a political science class. Which of the following do you think I should take? And why? The first one sounds more interesting to me, but I feel like I should take an intro just to get an overview. 


American Government: Analyzes constitutional government in America in terms of the theory and practices of democracy. Students investigate issues of individual rights, popular representation, and responsible leadership. No pre-reqs.

Intro to Political Science: Explores the evolution of major political concepts from ancient Greece to the present. Topics include political life in the modern world and the ideas behind democratic and non-democratic forms.

A very convoluted question.

I'm interested in a brownie point tracker, and I'm trying to figure out if it exists, or if I'll need to get someone to make it. Basically, we have a group of 8, and I want to have a way for people to suggest why one person should get/lose a brownie point, and the other 6 people to vote and comment, and if there's enough votes, a brownie point is taken away or given.

Heard of any system similar to this?

TQC, I need new headphones.

What do you use? Direct me to high quality headphones!

difficulty: no earbuds unless they are so good you'd give up sex with your favorite celebrity for them.

I'm probably not going to be at home tomorrow, so what should I do? Can I just leave a note or something?

running shoe(s) question.

For those of you who work run/walk, what kind of shoe do you have? I'm in desperate need of a new pair. Any recommendations?

& for those of you who live in the Carolinas, I'm going to 'Run for your Life' and 'Charlotte Running Co'. I've never been to the latter, but I used to go to 'Run for your Life' all the time with my dad. Which do you prefer?

I juts downloaded an audiobook, but it's in 128 parts. I'd ideally like to have it in one big part, but I don't know how to do that.

TQC, do any of you know of a downloadable program for MAC that could do this for me?

having read a lot of erotic, I must say

Is it not a little fucked up that every virginity-losing tale in books and legend has the girl feeling a little pain in the beginning, and then enjoying sex forever (unless she was raped)? This contributes to women having a fucked up idea of sex, no? The whole "lie back and think of England" business, yes? Have ANY of you actually had a wonderful time during your first time being penetrated?

Also, what's the last thing that ruined your day? For me, that fucked up comic anthill shared. That's been ruining my whole weekend and now it's spread into Monday.

ETA: sooo since no one seems to care, what are you doing tomorrow? anything exciting?

Only you may be able to help me TQC.

I was thinking about this poem today that I read in high school. It was sort of a fairytale retelling by Gretel (Hansel and Gretel, obviously). It took place a few years after the whole witch thing and Gretel was going on about how her father and Hansel have forgotten and moved on but she can't, she's still serious PTSed about it. I know that this is vague, but it's all I remember. Does anyone know what this is?

For those of you who smoke, do you smoke in front of your parents? If so, when did you start smoking in front of them?
I need more cigarettes, and I ride to work with my mom. I don't want to buy them in front of my mom on the way to work in the morning, but I also don't want to walk across the huuuuge parking lot to the gas station on my lunch break to get them, because I'm goddamn lazy. I'm 22-years-old for chrissakes! D:

Should I just suck it up and smoke these Smarties instead? All the cool kids are doing it.

I'm tired of desserts

Will you tell me about some vegetables that you like and how you like to prepare them?

I am eating a yam that I roasted a few days ago with salt and pepper. It's nice and soft and sweet. Though I wish I had some purple cabbage to toss with these walnuts and sesame/chili oil and lemon juice.

Do you talk about your period with your SO?

I was in the car with my sister and she started yelling that periods and past relationships should *never* be discussed.

I always talked about it with my ex, and new guy and I have both talked about our past relationships so...I'm just curious about everyone's opinion.

I am a college student. An internship I'm working on getting this summer is asking for references. I've got a couple of people from previous work/school experiences who I had plenty of one on one interaction with and who I think would give good recommendations, but I also took a class which may be very relevant to the internship and which I did well in. I met with the proffessor only once outside of class, and he probably doesn't remmeber me. Should I ask him to be a reference anyway?

Cliffs: Is it ok to ask a professor of a previous class pertaining to a potential job to be a reference, even if they may not know you personally? Or is it better to use unrelated job/school contacts who know you well?

Whenever I'm going on a really long drive in which I won't encounter many bathrooms I wear a skirt just in case I need to pee somewhere on the side of the road. Is this weird? Do you do this?

It was pretty useful when I was driving all around Utah last May.

God has appointed you the director of the afterlife.

With this position, you get to set the policy for who enters heaven and hell, or if they get reincarnated into another human newborn of your choosing. You can appoint any number of underlings and "supernatural technology" to help enforce this policy.

What would your policy be?

when i just let the dog out, i saw some tiny animal on the fence that was bigger than the typical florida anoles (lizards) but smaller than a squirrel.
it made a shrill chirping or screeching noise after running away.
what the hell was it?
