I'm thinking of a scene: it's in a musical, this guy walks out of his house into his suburban neighborhood singing "I'M GAY! HOORAY! I'M GAAAAAAAAY!" and people from the block rush up to him to support him. It's on youtube I think, I just can't find it.

TQC, if you met someone online, lost contact with them, and then met them unknowingly under another identity, and found out they were the previous person, would you feel betrayed?

keep in mind that the person didn't change their identity to be malicious; they just felt like they needed a change. also, you were cool with them under the first identity, you simply fell out of contact with them.

if this scenario is too complicated: do you prefer serious birthday cards, or funny ones? how do you feel about some e_e cards?

You're dating someone new, and everything's romantic and cutesy, and on the third date, he/she gets a tattoo of your name on their arm.

1. Is this a dealbreaker, or does it make you care about them even more?
2. Would you want to break up with them, but feel guilty about what they did, so you'd date them a few more months just so they wouldn't feel like a complete loser?
3. Would it encourage you to get a tattoo of their name on your arm?

Boring question alert!

I cleaned my keyboard today and popped out my space bar, and now I can't get it back in properly. I have a Dell (terrible), if that helps. My major issue is the X shaped frames on either side of the main space bar "button", all three pieces to them came undone. 

How do I fit these back together? I tried wikihow and the instructions made no sense.

My boyfriend showed me this t-shirt design site ages ago, and I've forgotten the address. I think it may have had the word imagine/Image/Imagery in the url but I can't be certain. the t-shirt designs were awesome, sort of surreal and abstract, detailed and colourful. It was definitely an American site.
Can anybody point me in the direction of this, or any other good sites that sell cool t-shirts?

Woe is me... and yes, I know this subject is totally unoriginal.

I know this is a very long question, but please just bear with me here. There's this girl, OK. (Yeah, I know, I know) As far as I'm concerned, she is my best friend, and I really do appreciate her friendship and I care about her terribly. But we're just friends. She probably doesn't think of me as her best friend, as she has more friends than I do. But in any case, we're good friends.

The thing is, I really, really do love her, with all my heart, and I want to be more than just friends, but I don't know how to bring that up. I'm just too shy. She's single, at present, but lately she's been telling me all about how she's just started dating some boy - and I dislike this soo much, it makes me feel horrible and envious, but I don't know how to say anything.

The thing is, if she doesn't consider me boyfriend material, I don't want to lose her friendship, because I
really do appreciate it... I want her to be my girlfriend, as well as my best friend as well...

I'm going back out on the road for work in 7 days (thank god) but unfortunately my glasses were lost on the last job I had and they were never returned to me. I can deal with slightly-blurry vision (and have been for several months) but my timing sucks and I want to get frames before I go back out, so I can at least have the look I want.

Where can I buy just frames? I don't have time to get the lenses put in and shipped to me, and I was told places like Walmart and Lens Crafters would have to have the frames sent to me as well, which I don't have time for. Is there an actual place for buying JUST frames? Or am I out of luck?

Random tech question

Okay, I've tried everything I can think of, short of booting my amazingly expensive laptop out the damn window.

I have an Alienware laptop. I used their rebuild discs to rebuild it when I got a new hard drive. I have the latest drivers and everything. When I turn it on, half the time the monitor doesn't come up. When I went to the device manager to look, it's showing SIX monitors listed. There's only one screen connected to my laptop, so I don't know WTF Device Manager is talking about. I've tried disabling them - didn't work. Contacted tech support, and all they asked was, "Do you have video drivers?" "Yes, or it would NEVER come up." After that, they had no suggestions. And the warranty is unfortunately expired.

So, has anyone seen this before on a laptop that has no external monitors plugged in? If so, how did you fix it? I'm tired of having to hard boot the computer 8 to 12 times to get the stupid thing to work.

When we split up a year ago, my ex kept my bike on the understanding I would get it back when I wanted it. So.. I recently decided I want it back so I can start getting some ~exercise~. Naturally, the bike got stolen a week ago. My ex feels responsible and has offered to buy me a new one, but I've refused and she thinks that's silly. Is it?? It's not like it's her fault, it was a professional theft. Should I let her get me a new bike?


I'm back in school as a transfer student after a 4 year hiatus and I'm trying to do really well this time around.

I just took two placement tests and apparently sucked ass.

The first was a computer literacy test. I expected lots of questions about word processing systems and knowing your way around a computer. WRONG. It was about networks and why was this OS created? and what does a hard drive look like? and whatnot. I've been using computers since I was just a wee lass and had JUST earned the class's only perfect score on an exam in my 300-level computer graphics course. Now I have to enroll in 'Introduction to Computer Technologies'. So, naturally, all I can think about this is 'WTF?'

The second was a math placement test. I'm not the best at math (without a calculator, at least), but upon completion of the exam I was told that I was eligible to take whatever math class I wanted. Sweet. Except when I went to enroll in it for the fall and was unable to, I learned that what they meant to say is that my score says I have to enroll in not one, but TWO remedial (noncredit) math classes before I can take the one I was told I was eligible for. Again, 'WTF?'

Question is: Can you be nice to me and tell me that I'm not dumb and maybe share a similarly upsetting school story and also give me advice on how can I keep from looking like :'( ?

 I adopted a cat last year (February) and he is about a 1.5 years old now. We currently live in an apartment with two roommates and a dog. Currently, his litterbox resides in my bathroom (he's an indoor-only cat).

At the end of May, I will likely be moving into a townhouse with my cat. My questions are two-fold:
1. Where do people keep the litter box when they have more room?
2. How can I best transition my cat to his new digs?

Someone you just met starts telling you all about her husband. She tells you she left him 7 years ago but can't get a divorce because of her religion. Then she informs you that she "wishes he would just die" so that she could start dating. She is totally serious about it.

do you have a more dominant personality, or are you more submissive? (Is submissive even the right word here? )

I find that I am both dominant and submissive, depending on what personalities I am surrounded by at a certain time. This bothers me though.... I feel I am extremely dominant around submissive people (which makes for an unenjoyable time. I don't like when people are so easily intimidated.) and extremely submissive around dominant people (which also makes for an unenjoyable time because I just end up being taken advantage of).

Does anyone else experience this as well? Is there any way to just be neutral with another person/group of people?

This has created significant difficulties for me in my relationship with my boyfriend... I'm realizing as time goes on that he is the much more dominant one and its giving me some insecurities... I'd like to get some other people's opinion on this topic to gain a better understanding of how I should confront this problem.


What do people think of tattoos on women? My Japanese girlfriend is a bit chubbeh and I told her that a tattoo would make her look fatter, particularly when she got older and chubbier.

My cousin and I had always been pretty good friends - I covered for him when he quit his job, then bought a brand new motorcycle, and even forgave him when he suddenly bailed on me (three times) when we were about to share an apartment together. He's a chronic liar towards my family in regards to all this, but I always figured we were close enough that he didn't do so with me.
However, a few days ago I asked him to help me move my tv this afternoon before I had friends over, since the damned thing weighs like 600 pounds. He said he'd be over around noon, but today he texted back, saying he wouldn't be in town until 9PM, because our grandma asked him to do some chores for her (This is always his tell tale lie btw).
I'm hardly a vindictive person, and a bit of a pacifist, but kinda pissed, as I suspect he's lying to me, after all I did to help cover up his own shit..

So my question is this - Should I call my grandma and see if he's telling the truth, or will this only cause a shit storm, and I should just be more cautious of the favors I do for him? Or am I just making a retardedly big deal out of nothing, and just PMS'ing?

btw, ladies what are some of your hairstyles for medium length naturally wavy/curly hair that basically goes frizzy right out of the shower? like i have to comb it w/ a wide comb tooth right out of the shower and if I attempt to comb it once it's dry it's just a gigantic long frizz ball that's pretty soft but closely resembles a Brillo pad

I know we're all familiar with the particular brand of hate-spewing far right-wing radio hosts who frequently threaten or encourage violence against liberals/immigrants/Muslims/gay folk/whoever. For example, Michael Reagan said of 9/11 conspiracy theorists "Take 'em out and shoot 'em. They are traitors to this country, and shoot them.... Call 'em traitors, that's what they are, and you shoot 'em dead. I'll pay for the bullet."

My question is, can you think of any examples of liberal pundits who are so violent? The most vehement liberal I can think of is Keith Olbermann, and he accuses his opponents of being traitors, liars, hypocrites, racists, all kinds of horrible things. He might even encourage revolution. But he doesn't directly threaten anybody with violence.

Am I forgetting somebody?

What is your explanation for this discrepancy? Are liberals just more polite? Or is it just because there are more conservative radio hosts, so some of them are bound to be insane. Or maybe it's because right-wing hate is so entertaining that we create a demand. Why isn't left-wing hate so entertaining?

Will you tell me your cockroach stories?

I just got through 'helping' my sister catch and kill the roach in her room (we were both squealing and basically doing the stereotypical girly ew ick etc reaction). The cockroach had been cornered underneath her wardrobe, or so we had thought, and then it appeared on her BOOKCASE next to the wardrobe, and then we both freaked out and sprayed bug spray any-old-how until the roach fell off the shelf. Then I whacked it (ineffectually) until I thought it was dead and we had to call in our mom to throw it away because we were still too freaked to deal with it. Turns out it wasn't really dead but Mom killed it and threw it for us. I swear, the whole apartment block must've heard our shrieking.

ETA: I just remembered, one morning when I was walking to school there was this whole bunch of roaches on the sidewalk. Half of them were definitely dead, half I couldn't tell but assumed to be alive. They were really deviating in size, like from the size of my thumb to teeny baby roaches. I wondered all day WTF had happened.
