Inspired by this thread on Fark;

Someone wrote the difference between Americans and the British is that if you ask how far a certain place is, a Brit will reply in distance while and an American will reply in time. For example;

Asking an American;
Q: How far is it from Virginia Beach to D.C.?
A: About four hours

Asking a Brit;
Q: How far is it from London to Leeds?
A: A little over 300 kilometers.

My question to you is, do you find this to be true for you? When someone asks the distance between two places do you use actual mileage or amounts of time? And, where are you from, by the way?

Should I drink this milk?

It is officially 40 minutes past the expiration date. :(

Coffee maker's too loud, so I wanted some chocolate milk. I have an english project to do, and it wouldn't be cool if I was stuck in the bathroom with the runs. Plz halp.

[edit] Well. I went for it and everything seems to be fi-

OH SHIT!

It's late and I'm not making sense

They say that sometimes men engage in 'dick-measuring contests' (figuratively) to find out who's more manly. Do women ever engage 'vagina-measuring contests (who's got the widest-set vag) to find out who's more feminine?

Serious and non-serious answers welcome. Ambivalent answers can proceed to engage in a 'dick-swallowing contest'

Passover??

Have any non-Jewish members of TQC attended a Passover seder?
How was the experience for you?
Any Jewish TQCers got any advice for me?

My room mate/BFF has graciously invited me to the home of his fabulous parents for this event. I accepted because I truly am interested in this, as well as honored to have been invited. However, looking in to it on Wikipedia, I am seeing this as a "WHERE DO I PUT MY HANDS?" situation - there are a lot of steps and stuff, things I am TOTALLY not familiar with.

All I was told was "THERE WILL BE WINE! LOTS OF WINE!", and that so long as I don't bring ham and a loaf of bread, I won't offend.

TIA, y'all!

Allergens on couch...


How would you go about getting potential allergens off a couch?  I've tried vaccuuming it.  Do you think a steam clean would do best?  Or has anyone had any luck with that Febreze Allergen Reducer spray?

I'm trying to think of anything else that might have changed in my routine to cause an allergic reaction, but can't really think of anything else.  I'm going to an allergist next week, so he might also have some suggestions.

For the curious, it's a brand new Ikea couch http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/90125722

Any assistance or advice would be very helpful!

Peace,

Can you please encourage me to not fail this class (English 1102)? The teacher is the most scatterbrained woman I've ever had the displeasure of meeting and I am ready to jump off of a cliff. Every day she tells us a bucketload of assignments, then changes the next meeting to "don't do that, don't do this". She makes up her assignments as she goes. I HATE IT AND AM VERY CLOSE TO FAILING.

My best friend sent me a text last night and I can’t tell if it was meant for me or not. It said “muliebrity hates me. She’s paying me back for all those times that I said I’d call her back but didn’t. I miss her.”

Of course I don’t hate her (and she’s always over-dramatic anyway). Should I reply or pretend I never got it, since it seems like maybe she meant it for someone else?

What is a good birthday present for a girl who you are not that close with, but you are attending her birthday party? She's someone who, at this time, is more of an acquaintance than a friend but we have many mutual friends and she and I are getting closer. I just can't think of what would be an appropriate gift for someone I don't know that well. Jewelry seems a bit trite (or something to be given by closer friends), and a T-Shirt seems awkward (plus there's the risk of insulting with too large, or ill-fitting with too small). Hmm.

Okay, so according to my previous post, most of you pronounce 'buoy' as boo-ee or similar. A few of you mentioned that you though the 'boy' pronunciation was odd, and vice versa. But it lines up with words like 'buoyant' (boy-int). So then, if you use the 'boo-ee' pronunciation, how do you pronounce buoyancy/buoyant?

Leech therapy

My daughter (7 y.o) has some minor problems such as an attention deficit, insomnia, headache. And my wife decided to take our girl to the hirudotherapy. Our daughter is glad, and my wife claims that it helps. And they brought these full leeches home, they are like pets now.

TQC, my husband just got his first ticket ever from rolling through the stop sign in our neighborhood. At the bottom it says "Fine - $50, Court Costs - $121, Total - $171".

Assuming we don't bother to fight it (it was a clear violation and I've yelled at him about doing it before) and don't go to court, I would assume we only have to mail in a money order for the $50, right?

Have you ever gotten a ticket? What was it for?

This won't raise our insurance rates, will it?

Purple and green mushrooms :D D:

Does anyone know if a mushroom with a purple top with white dots and green stem exists? Or at least purple top and green stem? (I've googled, but found nothing)

Because I had a tie-dye made today at the Agriculture festival at my college, and one of the designs they could make was a mushroom with those colors, so I picked it because I'm fascinated by mushrooms, and because in that color it looked good with the shirt. So, can anyone tell me if a mushroom like that one actually exists?

I was just kicked out of my awesome comfy chair so three kids could have a showing of some weird ass movie. Apparently this is a school event, however, they kicked out about twenty kids and the event could have easily been placed in another room.

High school...

If you could go back to high school and change all of your classes, what would you change? What else would you change about your academic life?

For me, I'd...

- take Italian for three years instead of Spanish.
- take Chorus for only two years and take Speech & Debate in 11th grade instead.
- take Creative Writing, World Religions, and Ceramics instead of taking Piano, SAT/PSSA Prep and Drawing.
- take Environmental Sciences instead of Chemistry. Or take Career Prep (read: lowest difficulty) Chemistry.
- take Keyboarding instead of General FCS.
- take AP World History instead of Honors Government & Economics and back it with another Art class.
- be on the newspaper staff all four years instead of just my last two.
- also get better grades in Math 9th and 12th grade and just generally worked much harder. Especially in 9th grade so I could have gotten to Honors classes quicker.
- Make my GPA around 3.4 instead of 3.0.

I was just eating some fried chicken with my dad, from the local shop that we go to a lot, and I swear it smelt and tasted like CHEESE. Not like it was off [because off chicken just smells revolting], just a distinct air of cheesiness about it. My dad said his chicken smelt and tasted like chicken, and I got him to try some of mine and he said it was fine.

So why did it smell cheesy to me?! TELL ME, DO I HAVE A BRAIN TUMOUR AND IS IT TERMINAL?!

Baby, it's you...except not

Your best celebrity crush ends up dating someone who looks JUST like you. You could be twins, except he/she has a slightly better body. Even this person's name is the same, except it's spelled differently. Your crush tells the media that he/she has never been so happy and it's true love. They marry soon after and in all the tabloids, you see pictures of your crush and what looks like you exiting the church in full wedding regalia, enormous smiles on their faces. How do you feel?

The marriage lasts a year, and after that, your twin breaks your crush's heart and ends up winning half his/her fortune in the divorce. Your crush is devastated and announces to the press "I hate my ex SO MUCH! I'll never so much as talk to anyone who reminds me of him/her!!" So, pretty much, any hypothetical chance you might have had with your crush is no longer possible and you wouldn't even get a chance to talk to him/her without your crush calling security on you. How do you feel?

Alright.  I've been unemployed for way too long.  Partially due to health crap popping up and also in part to a completely saturated job market.  Typically, I've been an Administrative Assistant / Executive Assistant (just special words for Secretary, pretty much).  It's time to get a skill and be more marketable.  My father called me this afternoon and told me to think of something I want to do and he's going to put me through the schooling necessary to do it.  (Side note:  Wow, I had no idea my Dad was this awesome.  Ok, a little idea.) 

But now I'm stuck.  I have NO idea what I could possibly look into and I'm brain dead.  We're meeting for dinner in 15 minutes to talk about this further.  Can you give me ideas that don't have years-long degree plans (phd, masters, blah blah blah)?  The only thing I can think of is possibly nursing school, but I don't know if I could get over a slight fear of needles and blood to do it.

I called the manager and was told the complaint specifically said it was loud rap music. That's one genre I don't listen to, but my neighbor across the hall is constantly playing it LOUDLY. These neighbors also let their kids run up and down the hall like fucking maniacs. The note said if there's any more complaints, I'll be charged $100. For something I'm not even doing.

Dear TQC, what would you do? Would you confront your loud neighbor and tell them to turn it down? Would you go downstairs to the neighbor that complained and discuss it with them? Would you say fuck it and make as much noise as possible since you'll probably be stuck with a fine anyway? Or would you do something else entirely?

Thanks everyone.

So, I'm trying to get super tan because I have this vacation thing in a week, and I'm naturally very pale but I look good tan. Ok. So I use tanning booths. I usually do 10 minutes. Besides using their lotions, which seem to be out of my budget, how can I get REALLY tan** and stay really tan? (spray tanning is kind of not an option since I tend to break out)

Why the hell do people like being tan?

****spare the speech, I do not a give a fuck
