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?
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.

What stupid April's Fool jokes have people tried to pull on you so far?
Serious and non-serious answers welcome. Ambivalent answers can proceed to engage in a 'dick-swallowing contest'
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.
Which would be a better stage name?
What are some good online comics?
The Perry Bible Fellowship comes to mind.
For me, it's a good singing voice - or, just a guy who is willing to sing regardless. :D
2)what is it about 4 am that wakes me up?
Did you know the movie is actually real?
Isn't it the best, most badly acted, terribly shot, poorly written, gloriously lutztastic movie ever?
If you think you have a better so bad, it's good movie, then what is it?
Oh, God, I am crying tears laughing over here. This is comedy gold, Jerry!
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!
I'm getting stale and hit a plateau
What is in your pockets?
What is your favorite April Fool's Day prank? I need something good for my boss. :)
I don't have one of my own, I'm just curious.
For full time college students, do you take spring/fall semesters and take summer off, or some other combination?
I've been doing spring/fall but I am considering starting summer and fucking off this fall, and letting that count as my ~summer~ for insurance purposes.
Do you read your horoscope?
I am staying near N Lincoln Ave if that helps...
Will you tell me what's on your mind?
I can save it as a webpage, but I can't put that format onto Photobucket.
a) How is that fair?
b) How is that even possible?
c) Should I blame the crazy fucking Russians? Everything else seems to be their fault.
How are the two related to you?
So far I'm thinking weekly fundraising cupcakes.
2. What is a reasonable price to pay for a cupcake?
3. What can I go as to a time-travel party? It has to be a time traveller or someone from a particular period in history. Something with colourful hair would be a bonus.
Skirt-wearing members of TQC: When you go to the bathroom, do you:
Why would a former best friend that I haven't spoken to in 7 years add me on facebook? She didn't send a message with her friend request.
If an underage boy fathers a child, should his parents be responsible for child support payments until he comes of age?
I'm getting over a cold. I feel pretty good except for this TERRIBLE tickle in my throat that makes me cough. Plus I wake up with terrible chest congestion.
So, Doctor TQC, which cold medicine would you recommend for these symptoms? (I have to be fully alert for work at4 so nothing that will make me drowsy, please :D )
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?
are you prankin anyone today?
I screwed up on my chicken soup.
Is a turtle who loses its shell homeless or naked?
What do you say, TQC?
The offenders should be grounded from the phone for six months. The senders of the pics should be told about how Uncle Hank will be wanking off their pictures from the internet.
2)what should be done about the saggy pants problem?
My dad should wear saggy pants, making everyone else not wear them anymore.
Will you lay your best April Fool's joke on me and see if I fall for it?

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?
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?
Also, how do you feel about people who befriend their professors?

this is a site where you can chat with total strangers.
Will you log on and see if we can "connect" with a fellow TeeKewCee'r?
typical conversations go like this:
Stranger: kia ora
You: tot ziens
its lulz tastic
I KNOW its been "done"...humor me.
Please to be cutting and pasting humorous interludes.
I am a little irritated. How would you feel?
The car is a big Lexus and my mom is schizophrenic. I don't know if that has anything to do with it, it just means that I've been cautious about playing practical jokes on her in the past.
Have you ever had a craving for the elusive "something" but various foods didn't satisfy it? Did it go away on its own or did you find a cure?
Do you think thats enough?
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 figured we would read some stuff out loud together but what should we read?
Should I start a story with her? Read from the newspaper? Magazine? What do you think?!

They gave it a 7.3/10
Personally I would rate these in the 8.5/10 - 9/10
Keeping in mind we can only IM today, what prank should I pull on her tonight to get back for this?
2. What's your regional accent? Is it thick? Can people guess where you are from after you say a few words?
3.After seeing one too many bad vampire movies on my own, I'm looking for some new ones that are actually good for a difference. What would you recommend?
I prefer unusual, dark and scary vampires like Near Dark, Let the Right One in, Fright Night, From Dusk Til Dawn, Subspecies and Nosferatu. I can't stand romantic, emo, vampirism is a metaphor for sexy times movies like Twilight, Bram Stoker's Dracula and The Hunger.

ETA: DO YOU LIKE ADRIANA LIMA? I feel like I'm the only person on the planet that thinks she's funny looking.
What is your favorite internet April Fools joke ?
It's funny because I get so much e-mail and could really use this right about now.
The event is down the street from me, and I already have paid for two tickets. The people putting on the benefit are only getting money from the ticket sales, not the drinks/etc. There will be a lot of people there that I know.
Should I still go? Or should I just go out with my other friends (who didn't want to go to the benefit)?
Which musical should I go see?
Note: I've already seen RENT.
What April Fools pranks have you pulled today?
I put a giant sign on the back of my mother's car that read: "HONK, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY" among some other little things.
eta: obviously jealousy is an issue. other ideas, plz.
eta2: you guys are all right (except seanx3). i have no idea why i still talk to her, i guess we just had long history. but, it is time now. i need to weed out the people in my life who bring me down and she is one of them. i just received a text from her saying "she isn't going to make you happy" while the girl in question was at my house with her dog. i'm done dealing with my ex and ignoring will take place. thank you guys for "smacking me in the face" with reality.
So why did it smell cheesy to me?! TELL ME, DO I HAVE A BRAIN TUMOUR AND IS IT TERMINAL?!
Or maybe one of those weird mouth/nose infection things that makes things smell/taste funny?
It was in my jacket pocket after I left the store and got in the car, and I've only been home since.
Are you prone to leaving things?
what's something that your dissatisfied about?
My mother has declared my new name to be Tootsie Dippindoodle. How silly is that? Edit: She got it from some email someone sent her about "Take the third letter from your first name and find the matching word starting with that letter from this list" and so forth.
Have you ever had food so bad you HAD to complain about it??
I didn't PAY for it....it was in the mess hall. It was free. but it has wrecked my tastebuds FOREVER.

Would you rather I was addicted to pharmaceuticals or illegal drugs?
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?
How do you feel about witnessing PDAs (Public Displays of Affection) ?
What makes you more uncomfortable?
I'm all for love and all, but my just-dumped best friend wasn't very comfortable watching our friend and his new girlfriend stop every two minutes for a peck.
Random question: How do I turn off e-mail notices for comments? I see boxes below this about allowing/screening comments but those aren't what I want are they?
I like 'absence makes the heart grow fonder'.
Oh yeah, I'm a girl.
13.25" or 1'1.25" or 1 foot, 1 and a quarter inches.
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.

If I ever commit suicide, here's what I plan to do -- you can use this -- I'm gonna fling myself off the top of a skyscraper, but before I do, I'm gonna stuff my pockets with candy and gum. That way, when I smack into the sidewalk, I'll burst like this big, human pinata. That way, the on-lookers who walk up, they can go, 'Oh man, he really must have been depressed -- oh, Snickers! Alright!'

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?

If you don't want to do that - tell me, how many holes are there in your body? Mine - 22. The, erm, 'regular' holes; and some extras from piercings. I am actually curious to know this; this is not just a, "I'm having life dramas but I'll throw in another question as well so I don't look self-obsessed" post.
I'm interested in trying Trilastin - I see a lot of good reviews. I'm also interested in Strevaxl but I cant find any websites with reviews on them (beside the same review prolly just fake written on several websites).
I've always never payed attention to creams and stuff for stretch marks because there have been so many in the past that are just hoaxes, but some new ones out that seem to be different?
I'd be thankful to hear about any product reviews or anything you've tried or know someone who has tried it.
what other clothes do people generally wear to clubs?
What was the best year of your life so far and why?
My answer: I am 24 now. The best year of my life was 2004 and I was 19. It was the best year of my life because I started dating the guy I had liked forever and am now married to. I bet the best people/friends I had ever known and I felt gorgeous and beautiful and capable and awesome and never thought about how I looked or my weight or anything of the sort.
(except clothes, books, crap like that and eh an iPod cause I don't have one)

We have 4 people sitting around a table. 3 of them are Joe, Laura, and Missy. The 4th person is you! Joe, Laura, and Missy are your good friends. Joe acts like an asshole a lot but he really means well and has his genuine caring moments. Laura is a bitch, she really can be mean sometimes, but she's only that way because she's socially weird and doesn't know how to handle situations properly. Missy is cool.
Joe pulls out a picture of himself from 3 years ago and shows it to you all. He is larger in this picture than he is now, but not obese or anything, just a little overweight. You didn't know him back then. Obviously he's lost some weight since then and has done good for himself.
Laura looks at it and says "You're so... FAT! You don't even look like the same person!!!" in a rude and condescending kind of voice.
Joe is taken aback. He says "Oh, well I was really fucked up back then."
Missy says "You have got to be fucking kidding me. You were not "SO FAT", just heavier, and you do look like the same person! Jesus Christ!" She gives Laura a dirty look.
ETA: omg, I forgot to add this.
Laura says, "Okay, I guess you do look like the same person. Were you an asshole back then too?" in the same rude manner.
*uncomfortable silence with Missy glaring at Laura, Laura looking at Joe in a demanding fashion, and Joe looking like he wants to get away*
What do you do? Do you say something to Laura? Do you ignore them? Do you try to change the conversation to get away from this awkward moment?
Someone sent my mom 20 dollars anonymously in the mail yesterday, no note, no return address just the 20 dollar bill. Anyone else ever have something like this happen to them?
