If that is too much work, what well-known award would you like to win and why? Pulitzer, Nobel Prize, Oscar, Emmy, humanitarian award?
I went to the doctor about 3 weeks ago and the Dr. told me I had something called Plantar Keratosis. From what I understood, its like a callus under the skin. So, fast forward to today:
I noticed it began to peel and now its fallen off! Except, not the whole thing. There's something sticking out of my foot now! I need to know if anyone has any experience with this. Does anyone know anything about this?
This middle part is kinda soft and squishy and doesn't really hurt unless I pull at it... what should I do?

What is courage?
My roommate's cat has this thing about not coming out of the bedrooms, sometimes leading to him being locked up all day. Today was one of those days. We let him out when we came home, but she just went to go to bed and found that he'd pissed in her room. But instead of going on the carpet or bed or anything, he used her plastic foot soak bowl. He got lots of pets and a couple pieces of deli meat for that.
What's your favourite type of pie?
I'm planning on seeing one this summer.

ETA: And why?
And, what product do you wish was still made and/or easily available? Personally, I miss Surge and Jakada (Gotta get a Jakada!).
Edit: I keep coming back to check the comments, so feel free to boss me around even if someone else has said the same thing. When I get bored of one task, I move onto the next one. Basically, I'm letting TQC dictate my life since I'm too tired to think for myself.
Me: Josh Groban...So addictive ^^

Today I've bet with my friend Pavel Ovchinnikov
that I can prove the possibility of a sort of a "wonder" under next conditions:
in 7 days I have to find myself in the capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires.
my current location is Kaliningrad, Russian Federation, and I don't have any money.
But I need your help and advice, any information about how can I get to Buenos Aires
and what do I need for it (tickets, visas, plains, maps etc.) would help me.
i would also grateful for any financial help!
Please write me as quickly as you can
account number Yandex.Money

Can you put me up for a few days?
srs and non srs of course
(When I signed in this morning, they helpfully told me my account had been disabled, then sent me to the "HAHA YER FAKE" page.)
I'm coming back to the States this weekend and I'm afraid no one will be at the airport to pick me up.
WHY won't anyone in TeeKewCee put me up for a few weeks?
I don't smell and I can cook! Its only *temporary*
I thought we were ~friends~
I had my last icon for who knows how long, and I just changed the default. It's a strange sight, but I should get used to it quick.

I have been waking up for about a week straight with feelings of a hangover but I don't drink, nothing has chaned in my diet, same amount of sleep. I have a sore neck, light headed and nauseated. My tubes are tied so I know for facts I'm not pregnant.
Anyone else ever been through this or any suggestions on what it could be?
I could just go to the Dr. I know, but wanted suggestions first if its not really Dr. worthy, I like to save money!
srs or non srs answers, humor wouldn't hurt anything :)
What features should I look for?
If it makes a difference, the Elevaters are the opening band.
e.g. Airplaning skyscrapers is rude.
Specifically I am looking the one that says 'Don't you know she ADORES you?'
Do you have it? Will you post a link?

Based on the plan I chose, I pay $95.75 per check.

So why the discrepancy?

Do you have insurance? How much does it cost?
Do you rely on available local programs for healthcare?
A: If you have a ceremony in a church or preformed by a member of the clergy, rabbi,etc, it will be called a marriage.
B: If you have a ceremony at city hall, a park or the like, performed by judge, friend or someone with a certificate off the internet, it is a civil union. It would go for gay or straight couples.
C: You must be 21 years or older.
D: You or your partner must have job.
E: You must have a place of residence, unless either party is being transferred by the military 31 days or less after the ceremony.
Do you think this would satisfy both the left AND the right?

Made it a little tricky to review.
Since it's unlikely you've seen the more recent one, how would you classify The Doom Generation?
If you spam in people's journals, it's categorized as livejournal abuse. If you do so, are you technically an internet pedophile for abusing a 10 year old?
What are some of your pet peeves?
2. how's your day going? anything interesting to report?
3. what is something that you're looking forward to?
Why did you choose that name?
My answer, a cat called Graham.
It was grey. (Gray)?
What the hell am I gonna do with a 2.6m (that's about 8'5"!) snakeskin?? I have no idea, and it seems like a waste to just throw it out.
( Collapse )
Would you be freaked out finding out that a snake that big was slithering through your yard at some point? I've never seen snakes in my yard, though my flatmate has seen small ones (about 20cm). We have a creek right behind our house, so it doesn't surprise me. Seeing it alive might have given me a bit of a start, though.
Is that often enough?
If you had to decide between a job with a steady income or a job where your base pay would be lower but you could theoretically make considerably more or less than the other job through tips/commissions, which one would you choose?
I really want these ones.
I didn't even know what a bunion was!
How do I stop the bunion from growing? How the hell do I get rid of it?
F MY LIFE.
If you don't care, what is the most shocking thing you've seen on the internet, or at least one that sticks out in your mind? (Difficulty: no porn)
Edit: What was your favorite summer trip, if you're not interested in mine? Feel free to make me jealous!
My good friend whom I met on LJ years ago and now live with became friends with a guy I knew on a message board for the White Stripes while at a concert. The guy from the message board and I hated each other, and my room mate was not on the message board, either. This went down in New York City - millions of people and two people I know from separate things meet up. Weird. But now the guy comes over every Sunday for dinner and is one of my BFFs.
Will you tell me what your first concert was, what your most recent concert was, what your best concert was, and what your next concert is?
The White Stripes and Whirlwind Heat at the Hard Rock Live in Orlando/DMZ at Southpaw, Brooklyn/The Dirtbombs at the Social, Orlando/Joey Ramone's Birthday Party, featuring Death and Handsome Dick Manitoba

Just for some background info...
In 1900, it was 50.
In 1950, it was 68.
Today, it is 78.
I thought about doing Doctor Who, Star Trek, Trekkies, or Klingons. But I think if I did anything Trek I'd be getting in over my head.
I've read in a few places rinsing it with vinegar helps the longevity, is this true?
2. is there anything that you're addicted to? what is it?
3. what was the last thing you ate? what are you going to eat next?
One of the most annoying things that can happen when I watch a movie is for an actor or actress to suddenly lose their accent in the middle of a speech or something. If they absolutely couldn't find an actor that could hold an accent, they should have just nixed the accent instead of keeping footage with the actor switching in the middle of a sentence from, say, a Scottish accent to a plain American accent.
Every time my hands get wet (washing my hands, taking a shower, doing the dishes, etc.), the skin on my palms hardens and it looks like I have tiny holes in my hand. It's really disgusting and I have no idea what this is but it is grossing me the eff out.
Warning: Saying "This one" is unoriginal and will earn you no sexual favors from me.
Who was the last person to save your bacon? How?

To be continued....I will have to see which country gives me the better "deal" (Deal being the number of peeps I can meet)

It'd be fine, except I don't want to paint anybody I know, and I hate painting celebrities/whatever that are recognizable as famous.
So the question - Who should I paint? Bonus points if you post a pic of yourself or somebody you know, or a link to a picture of some chick with an interesting facial expression. And WIN if it's a nice big picture
OR how do I search for this kind of thing on the internet?
If not do you do it the old fashioned way with pen and paper, not at all or at another site?
Would you think the hospital was calling your kid a wimp for dying based on that ad, or is this lady just an oversensitive wingnut?

Who do you think is the most interesting serial killer? What is that serial killer famous for?
I really think the lineup AKA merger sucks balls now. I want both XM and Sirius but..........NOT for 20 bucks a month. Songs are still censored and some songs I could just turn on FM radio to hear. They need to give me and the world a 5 dollar plan. (and pick our own stations without having to buy that radio they have advertised on their website.)
EDIT: Already tried google, hence the asking for help thing...
He sent me a text today saying he won't be able to hang out this week (even though we never made plans) because of all this shit he has to do.

How can I do this?
Also, what fun shit did you do with Photoshop lately?
HURP DURP: my link works now.
Since so many of you love to attack those who hold different views, it would be enjoyable if at least one TQC member would call in while the rest of us listened (Free Talk Live is always encouraging those who do not share their views to call in). It is quite fun and it would be interesting to see how you guys hold up. Also, last time i called, i got on the air within 3 minutes (they don't get many female callers and are quick to push them through)
So, TQC, which one of you are brave enough to call? (it is on now and will continue to be on until 10pm eastern time. you got 15 minutes)
the # is 1-800-259-9231
eta: can you explain why you picked what you picked?
my husband and i are currently with t-mobile. it is more than a little sucktastic, but we're stuck in contract till the end of august. i want a blackberry. if i get one from t-mobile, can i port it to verizon when we switch? should i just get an unlocked one that i can use for either? is that possible?

If you don't care about romance/retaliation, what is your favourite lyric? Mine is:
Your heart felt good it was drippin' pitch and made of wood. And your hands and knees felt cold and wet on the grass to me. Outside naked, shiverin' looking blue, from the cold sunlight that's reflected off the moon. Baby cum angel fly around you reminding you we used to be three and not just two. And that's how the world began. And that's how the world will end.
If you don't have finals yet or ever, what is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
It can be about anything at all, if you think it's worth listening to list it!
1. What would you do if it was late on a weekday and your next-door dorm neighbors were screaming the words to bad pop songs (and had been doing so for the last 3 hours?)
2. Is there any person you know irl that you would not confront because you are scared of them?
(Yes, I'm scared of my next-door dorm neighbors. Otherwise I'd confront them)
3. Would the world be a better place if everyone cared about the environment?
4. What disease would suck the most to get? What pandemic are you actually afraid of getting? (as in, not swine flu)
5. Do you ever pity people who do very bad things for others? Why or why not? (ex: murderers, molesters, etc?)
*6. If you were granted the ability to sterilize people with your mind, would you do it? What would your criteria be?
The only time I remember shoplifting was when I was little and I stole this random mechanical pencil from a bookstore. When I was in the car, I was playing with it and my mother saw it and made us go back to the store and return it immediately.
Which country would you rather grow up in?
Where is the most embarassing place you have farted?
My answer may or may not be in the comments.
Today, when I was came home (in the early evening this time) my landlord was outside my apartment door, looking through he keys to find the one to my apartment so he could get in (still problems with the water apparently.) That time was fine because I wasn't caught totally off guard, but I'm still having a lot of residual anxiety about the first time. My question is- would it be OK, if it comes up again, to ask him to call me before he plans on getting into my apartment? Or is that completely out of line, given that he owns the building?
Australians in the house?
It's feeling particularly southern hemisphere-y here right now.
Why/why not? (I swear some of you are only here to up your comment count)
and then in the post the person's "question" is, "OK TQC, WHO IS BRAVE ENOUGH TO CALL IN?"
Do anti-marijuana ads make you want to smoke a joint?
So, she pays 25 bucks for a business license and 250 for a health department license, and they come to her house twice a year to inspect her kitchen and will either approve or reject her kitchen to see if it is up to code.
Do you think that she should have a business and health department license, or is this a little too ridiculous?
ETA: also note- she is selling cupcakes for like, 50 cents I think. It's basically covering the costs for the material to make the cupcakes.
or do both?
also, I haven't seen my housemate in a few days, where might
What did you think?
I'm in the middle of it right now, so try not to spoil it for me. But it's okay if you do because hell, I asked.
2. Do you like coffee cake?

You guys named it last time, so I figured I'd let you again.
You just don't get sick of it!
Mine: Robert Ludlum's Bourne Series
FUCK YEAH CAPSLOCK?
For those of you for which this does not apply, what are good, random questions to ask when you're getting to know someone? I often scour TQC, but it's almost hard, believe it or not, to find good questions for asking someone.
Also, how would your parents react if you dated someone of a different race? Meaning ARE YOUR PARENTS RACIST, Y/N?
Mine: The Lion King.
I'm willing to accept the idea that I made a mistake, but my boss is not god and he makes mistakes too.
So the question, TQC:
Would you bring this up with your boss hoping to win the glorious sum of 9 USD, which comes to maybe 8 after taxes? Or would you let it pass and just hope it doesn't happen again?
And a question for those who don't care:
when you have a cold, do you carry a box/packs of tissues around your house with you, station separate boxes in every place you might need them, or carry around a roll of toilet paper?
Me, I go for the toilet paper. I don't know why.

I want to get my AA is photography, but I don't think it'll actually get me anywhere career-wise.
