One day, you fall through your basement stairs into a secret room to discover a large vial labeled "Hitler's Semen". You take it to some futuristic lab that is somehow able to determine that yes, it is indeed the seed of the führer.
What would you do with a large vial of Nazi spooge?
Ugh, small towns suck.... How would you go about advertising or finding a person/business interested in buying an expensive quilt / wall-hanging (by an artist who is fairly well known in the quilting community)? My mom insists this quiltish thing will sell itself because the maker is so "ridiculously famous" but ... haha... I have my doubts and am trying to explore other avenues of finding a buyer.
eta: it's already on eBay, can't be sold on etsy (it's not "handmade by me"), so I'm trying to find places to advertise it at or get interest from.
I did a dye job at home and I'm debating on whether or not to keep it. I read somewhere that if I rinse it out with Head and Shoulders within a day it will strip most of it out. Is this true? If not, what other at-home remedies do you suggest?
i have a cold sore, and its in the healing stage so its just an unsightly scab on my upper lip.
i read that manuka honey helps with healing, i was just wondering if anyone here has had any experience with the healing properties of manuka honey? not necessarily with cold sores, but with any type of wound.
-Do countries need more(bigger) government, or less (smaller) government? Why/why not?
-America-centric: Do you agree with Gov. Rick Perry turning down stimulus money in a protest of "states' rights", even though Texans are gonna get taxed for it anyway and they're facing a large shortfall and rapidly dwindling unemployment funds? Why/why not?
It strikes me as a case of 'cutting off your nose to spite your face' ... there has to be better ways that don't screw over your constituency, in my opinion. Too much of this seems like political grandstanding.
-I've decided to study different types of government styles; for those of you that are interested in the same subject, can you recommend any good websites/books to read so that I might educate myself?
-Also America-centric: Do you think the SEC should be done away with and the market have free run? Would this lead to businesses dying out naturally, or completely rampant greed that would negatively affect those less tied into it while benefiting those at the top?
Unfortunately, I'm not well-versed enough in economics to answer this question, but I'm curious about the many different viewpoints that always seem to surface here in TQC.
-WTF is this whole tea bagging protest about? One place says "taxes". Another says "spending". Another says something else entirely. I'm still amused they're calling themselves "tea baggers", but WTF are they protesting?

So back in the mid 90's, my family had this really old school Sony Vaio computer and it came with a bundle of CD's that had a lot of games. Among those games there was this one game, it was called something along the lines of "Movie Maker", and you made movies with it (obviously). The game was 3D and you had some characters and stuff and you could make really shitty movies, but it was a lot of fun and I enjoyed playing it. I remember the CD was yellow and stuff. I think the game was made by Windows.
Anyways, since I've been having a hard time looking it up online, I was wondering if anyone else knows what game I am talking about? And if so, do you have any idea where I can find a copy?
I really want some onion dip, the kind where you just mix sour cream and onion dip mix. However I don't have any sour cream. I do have low fat cream cheese and 1% milk. Do you think I could mix the cream cheese and milk together until it had a sour cream consistency, and then mix it with the onion stuff? Is this a terrible idea?
MY GOOGLE-FU HAS ONCE AGAIN FAILED ME AND I NEED THIS FIVE MINUTES AGO.
WHAT THE HELL IS THE TIME FRAME FOR CATCHER IN THE RYE. I MEAN, BETWEEN HOLDEN STANDING ON TOP OF THE HILL AT THE BEGGINNING, AND HIM SITTING IN THE RAIN AWAY FROM THE CAROUSEL AT THE END, HOW MANY HOURS HAVE PASSED? I'VE READ THIS THING TWICE FROM COVER TO COVER AND I STILL CAN'T FIGURE IT OUT. THANK YOU VERY KINDFLY FOR YOUR GOOGLE SKILLS, I FAIL AT WORDING THINGS RIGHT.
IF YOU DO NOT CARE/KNOW, DO YOU LIKE CAPITAL LETTERS EVEN WHEN YOU ARE NOT PANICKED OR YELLING?
A cat pissed on my favorite pair of jeans. I quickly took action with some oxyclean and a long run in the washer and dryer. However, they still have a musty smell and are kinda stiff/itchy. What can I do to make that not be the case? Is there anything else I can do? Or is the fact oxyclean failed means I have run out of options?
TQC, I am finishing up my research paper that's due today, and I can't for the life of me think of a creative title. Can you help me out? The subject is gay adoption. Feel free to make me laugh, I need one.
1. There's this guy who's been standing by the north ramp to the highway for about 3+ months every day, with a sign saying "trying to get to Florida." (We're in VA.) The south ramp is not near this north ramp.
a. Why isn't he near the south ramp?
b. Is Florida a code word for something else? What does he really want?
c.Or is he just asking for money to get to Florida some other way, and the north ramp is unimportant?
2. Will you tell me what you want, what you really, really want?
Okay, so I'm moving away in a month and posted a note on facebook asking my friends when the best time for them to have a party the week before I move. And then some people commented on how they want to get me GIFTS and want to know what I want them to get me!!
AHH! So what do you say in reply to something like this? I just want to say..Money..money is good! but that seems rude or something like that.
What would you ask for as a 'going away gift' from your friends (you're moving 1000+ miles away)?? What have you gotten a friend/family member as a going away present?
Is this an acceptable response? There are very few things I need for my trip (besides the gas to get there LOL)....I'm trying to downsize the best I can so I can move with just my car and that rooftop luggage thing. Thanks for asking though! Just makes sure you come to the party and take part in cake eating and ?boozing!??!
What was the best present you ever got (for any reason..Birthday, Christmas, Going away, graduation...and so on)??
You are on a crowded bus and have to pass some gas. You know the flatulence will be silent but deadly and untraceable back to your bum. Do you let it go in anticipation of the amusing reaction? Or are you above such childish antics?
Inspired by my morning bus ride. (No, I was not the offender)
2. We're heading into Manhattan (NYC) for a weekend wedding, gonna spend a few nights in a hotel, we're driving up from Maryland but don't want to drive into Manhattan itself. Is there a commuter train station we could park at, somewhere in New Jersey?
I've a song stuck in my head since the second I opened my eyes this morning. But I don't know what it's called or who's singing it. I don't even really know the lyrics.
I think its by a male band. Indie/rock-ish. Lyric-wise I'm stuck with something like "let's have a celebration" or "invitation" or something and "oh oh oh-oh-oh" in the chorus. And it's pretty fast.
I googled everything I could think of but it didn't really help. I also checked out music station websites for the latest charts and asked last.fm. And I'm listening to the radio all the time hoping they'll play the effing song.
Gnah. HELP. Thanks.
edit: It could also be "inspiration" or "hesitation" or something ..
For those of you in America, have you ever not done your taxes? Did you get in trouble? Say you skip one year, do you think the IRS will come banging on your door at 3am demanding that you pay them the 50 dollars in taxes you owe them? Or do you think you get by one year without having to file taxes?
Is ChaCha a scam? :P I really would like to sign up to be a guide, and want to do the thing where they deposit my earnings into my account, but I'm hesitant to give them my account number. If you're already a guide, do you enjoy being one?
For those of you who don't care: Why can my peanut butter be smelled all the way down the hallway? srs/nonsrs plz.
...to edit posts, but I'm asking another question anyway.
Some of the comments I've received about the previous sex-during-PMS question leads to me ask this:
Why do you think men and women (though I'm not sure which sex feels this most) regard female menstruation as gross and shameful? Shouldn't the fact that practically EVERY woman menstruates during her life have something to do with the open discussion of this topic?
Personally, I feel like we are engineered to feel shameful about our periods. As women we are taught that menstruating is something that should be "cleaned up" and "sterilized," because God forbid a woman makes a mess. It is also to be kept a discrete little secret with ads prostrating that NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO TELL YOU'RE ON THE RAG! if you use this brand of tampons or pads. Not to mention the marketing/profit gain by Tampax and other manufacturers of feminine hygiene products.
Girls: What are your tips for giving a guy an amazing, and unforgettable striptease?What is your favorite outfit/prop? Be very detailed! Guys: What could a girl do, especially during a striptease, that would undoubtedly rock your world? What about in the bedroom in general? Both: What do you think would be an awesome striptease song?
It focuses on childrens books- and helps if you are a parent. However, if you purchase childrens books for anything: yourself, your relatives, school, ect. you can also do it, just ignore the questions asking about "your kids".
This will be used for a class- so I appriciate honest and appropriate answers. I'll make a nasty/useless survey later for you to fuck around on, promise.
i have a gyno appointment in an hour and i'm nervous and have knots in my stomach. i haven't had an exam since i was 18; i am 21 now. i hated it. will you please list some things that are worse than having a stranger poke around your vagina?
Okay so in MS Word, when people make a form with "fill in the blanks" type lines, they usually do just a long underscore. But when you try to fill it in electronically this obviously doesn't work. So if I want to create a form, with lots of stuff like, for example
Etc, how can I make a line that aligns with the text? Because just simply drawing a line doesn't work. My boss cryptically told me it can be done using the table tools but I can't figure out how to erase the top bar and side bars of a one-celled table.
Ugh, I feel like that makes no sense but if it does to someone who knows, help please?? :(
Does anyone else find whistling so fucking annoying? What about humming?
Whistling annoys me. Always. Humming is not so bad unless its my boyfriends brother humming with his deep loud voice in the bathroom which is right next to the room we are sleeping, usually around 6-7am. I don't feel like I can say anything because nobody else seems to be bothered by it!! This morning, I was awoken by his rendition of the Lord of the Rings score. I swear I could have visualised the entire trilogy in my head if I wasn't desperately trying to get back to sleep!
This is sort of lame but a friend of mine is coming over and we haven't hung out in ages. We're both really creative, love to paint and used to come up with random crafty things to do when we were together.
Any cool ideas for something we could do?
if you don't care:
Will you tell me about something gross that has happened to you?
I was deciding what I wanted to do/for my birthday this year, since it's about a month away and it's my 18th. I decided that I want to go to a Ren Fair, give blood, go out to eat with my family, and get a tattoo.
I'm rather nervous. My grandmother is old and fell down and broke her hip. She's having surgery tomorrow. My boyfriend is out so I can't call him and my parents are at the hospital. I'm home witht he dogs.
it's my boyfriend's 21st birthday today. a couple of my friends and i spent all yesterday making him this delicious chocolate cake and i spent a lot of time working on his present and making his birthday as sweet as possible. i came over with a few of our mutual friends at 8 to eat cake ad celebrate, which we did, but it was cut short by he and his 21 and older pals deciding to go out drinking. i'm nineteen and a little hurt. i'm a baby, right? it's his fucking birthday, he should be able to go out and get shitty. i just feel like the kid who has to stay with the babysitter.
TQC, I'm a queen procrastinator and am now just filing for my tax return online.
I was always told (by my parents and my parents' accountant and many of my friends) that I need to fill out a 1040EZ, but for some reason, the website I used filled out a 1040A. Do you think it matters?
Does this sound like I will ever receive my stuff? I wish they would give me some kind of time frame or tell me what the fuck is out of stock. Or they could have just shipped the things that were in stock. There is absolutely no reason it should take them this long.
I NEED my foundation. My skin is looking so disgusting without it I have been avoiding going out. I ordered the same foundation in multiple shades (the name/number is missing from my bottle) and they are all in stock. Should I order them again in hopes of receiving them eventually? At this point IDGAF about the rest of the stuff I ordered.
I'm afraid I'll forget about this order and then in 6 months I'm going to be charged $350 when they finally decide to ship my shit.
I've emailed them again but it takes them like 2 or 3 days to respond.
I'm downstairs on the computer and my brother is asleep a few feet away. He just said "I think I'm still swimming.. and you're fine" and mumbled alot of nonsense...
My boyfriend talks ALOT in his sleep. One time he said "Gladys are you ready to go??" I was laying down beside him, and asked "Where are we going??"
Him: Come one where is my jacket.. get my jacket.. So I got up angrily and threw his jacket at him. Me: There it is. now where are we going??? Him: Come on lets go.. need my jacket.. Me: WHERE ARE WE GOING?? Him: *silence*
Turns out he was just talking in his sleep. Pissed me off though. Since this happened at like 1 am.. Oh yeah. And one time. He punched me in his sleep. No joke. We always sleep really close together, with our arms around each other. But since I was pregnant at the time I was propped on a big pillow and laying on my back. Out of nowhere he rolls over and throws a punch at me! I hit him back and he woke up pretty scared.
So, whats the funniest thing you've ever seen someone do, or hear them say, in their sleep? Whats the weirdest thing you have ever done in your sleep? Ever seen someone sleep walk? Do you sleep walk?
Today, I was stopped by a complete random stranger on the Underground and asked what my ethnicity was. Since he told me he was just asking for curiousity's sake, and I wasn't offended (I get asked that a lot) I told him. And then he said, "Oh right, well in that case, do you want to go get a coffee?"
1) What was the last really awful way someone tried to ask you for a date? 2) Why do all the crazies ask me for my number when I look rough?
I am wanting to go to a beach in early May. Not to swim, just to be one with the ocean and such.
What are some good beaches on the East coast (US of A), no lower than the Carolinas? ETA: I mean no lower and excluding the Carolinas. I can't figure out how to explain my thought. Tell me some fun stuff you did. What beach is shittacular? (East Coast or no)
Okay, I dunno what I'm doing wrong but if anyone knows how to do this in Blogger could you please, please, puh-lease give me an idea of what I'm doing wrong?
I want to make a like an lj-cut type dealy and I was following the instructions here but it does not freaking work and I don't know why.
I THINK I have the code in the right place but I'm not entirely sure because part of the instructions as to where to put the first part of code I can't seem to work out as there is no tags in my code.
the code is below the cut...hopefully this works...if someone, anyone, could have a look if they know how to do this it would really help me out and I'd be in debted for life. I've been toying for an hour and a half and am so frustrated right now
EDIT: Okay, putting the code under the cut just fucks everything so never mind...ignore this or if i should delete let me know and I shall
A couple months ago I noticed a couple silvery hairs growing in at the top of my head. (I'm 19!!) I didn't think much of it. Fast forward to today, I have a patch about half the size of a dime on the top of my head where there is noticeably less hair, and the only hair growing in is silver/white!! You can clearly see the white "patch". My hairdresser says I probably hit my head, but I don't remember hitting it thathard. My mom swears it's the way I part my hair (?) and thinks that my riding helmet is rubbing me there (although I don't think this is the case).
TCQ, why am I 19 with a sudden silvery patch of hair?
TQC, what does this symbol mean? I found it somewhere and really like it but I have no idea what it really is...I think it has something to do with religion/spirituality, but I have no clue. Any ideas?
