I'm going skydiving next month. The option I'm getting (the cheapest one) costs $220 after taxes and all. That's already quite a chunk out of my savings account, but this is something I've always wanted to do. I'd love to have proof of the jump, but it's an additional $80 for a video (or pictures). Should I stop being cheap and get the video or decide I've spent enough as it is?

if you were talking to someone online... who you hooked up with a few months ago... and they started talking about the time you hooked up... and then they said they missed it... and then they said "tell me a story" what would you think of that? would you think they wanted a sexy cyber-sex-like story to jerk off to? if not, what do you think that means?

Do you know anyone who has had a raccoon for a pet? Would you?

There's a very sad racoon in my backyard staring at me. I would never let him inside but I feel sorry for him and it made me wonder if people actually do that sort of thing. Their little claw-y fingers look scary.

What's your favourite chocolate bar?

When a couple has been together for a few years, do you think that it's normal to go through 'dry spells' where one half isn't as interested or in the mood for sex as the other, say for a month or so? Is it a sign that the relationship isn't as good/satisfying as it once was or is it just relative to a rise and fall of moods and desires?

i drink sugarfree rockstars all the time (energy drink). when i start one and for whatever reason can't drink it straight away i stick it in the fridge (comes in a can) and it goes flat in the fridge. i drink it when all the others are gone. if i stuck a carbonation tablet in there would it go fizzy again? or would it be like that bicarb and vinegar trick?

So what did you all think of the new Star Trek movie? 

Did the young Spock (Zachary Quinto) not make you cream your pants as well? haha! 

My fiance didn't think it had enough of the TNG rational calm to it. He was disappointed that it was so action-y.
I loved it on the other hand!

A friend of mine is going on a three hour road trip to get to an airport, to fly to her home town, to attend her father's funeral.
She's going to be emotional on the trip and she's going by herself.

Can you suggest some nice words for me?

I'm thinking of moving out once I graduate(or a few months after that). I've never lived alone or lived in a dorm or with friends because my parents home is a 30 minutes drive from my campus.

For a girl moving out for the first time, should I become housemates with:
a) Friends?
b) Total strangers?
c) Boyfriend of two years(who is also moving out for the first time)?

Ok, TQC, I have a whole closed pack of varied deli ham that expired May 13 2009.
Will I die if I make myself a sandwhich with that ham?
Or should I stop being a lazy bum, toss it out and go get some new ham?

What digital camera should I get? I'll be workin with around 250-300 dollars. I know what cameras there are, I'm just curious if there's one you would recommend. I kind of like the idea of lots of zoom. 

Also, I'm sure this has been asked a bazillion times before, but direct me to some time consuming safe for work sites (besides TQC)?

I am needing help from someone who knows computers.

I don't know if I downloaded something (a virus) but my computer has decided to get a mind of its own. My homepage has always been MSN but now its goes to the site. The biggest thing that is torking me off is, I play pogo quite a bit but when I click on the game I want to play, as soon as the little game screen comes on to download, it shuts down all my tabs?! I tried to do a system restore but it won't let me do that saying there has been an error.

Does anybody know something I can try to do to fix this? I also can't use my unistall program. Does this just mean I need to take it to a professional?

Can we please, please, PRETTY PLEASE WITH SUGAR ON IT quit with the sex in public restrooms? Seriously, please? I'm not trying to pick on gay people here -- I know straight people fuck in bathroom stalls, too, the only difference being that straight guys usually have to *pay* to have some chick suck his cock through the glory hole. The reason I bring this up was that I was just at the mall, and I really, REALLY needed to drop a stinky load, so I went to the restroom and, LOW AND BEHOLD, in order, apparently, to curb the amount of hardcore clandestine sex that was going on, they've lowered the walls on the stall to the point where they're basically waist height when you're standing up. ANYONE can just walk by and watch me birthing a chocolate baby. That's not cool. So, please... use the bushes, go get a motel room, do it in the back of a van down by the river... whatever... but keep it out of the bathrooms! Some of us actually need to use them for what they're intended for!

1. I just finished having an argument with someone on whether or not Virginia is a "true Southern state". (I am from VA. I say it is. She says it's not.)

So, I ask you, especially Southern TQCers, what makes a Southern state, southern?

2. For those who don't care, have you seen those Dos Equis: The Most Interesting Man in the World commercials? (Stay thirsty, my friends...)

When you make plans with friends, do you show up on time or are you late?

If you usually arrive late, about how late are you? 10 minutes? 15? etc...

Is it acceptable to show up an hour to an hour and a half late for a gathering?

I hate being late for stuff. (Unless it is work, but one of my bosses is a douche). The husband and I made plans with my friend and her family today..but because of him being totally unprepared, we'd be extremely late..which is not cool with me.

A couple different questions.

So i want to sell my scrubs on craigslist but i have no idea how much to price them at. How much would you try and get out of them?

secondly, I'm going to chicago in september and i'm having trouble finding a hotel. It HAS to be by a bus route or preferably the L. I'm staying for a week so I'd like to keep the cost down while it still being clean! Anyone have any recommendations?

Also, I use to use this website that had a trip planner on it to plan trips using the L or bus route but I can't find it. All i can come up with is using google maps which isn't as user friendly to me. Did they get rid of this and just switch the using google maps or am i just failing at finding it?

and finally! if you were going to chicago and had an afternoon to waste what would you do?

So, the intercom at my place of employment plays terrible music. Just recently, it started playing the WORST cover of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs song "Maps" EVER.

TQC, what are you procrastinating on/what should you be doing?

I need to clean my bathroom. IT'S SO GROSS. I've been putting it off for forEVER, and even though I've been in a total cleaning mood today, I just can't make myself do it. D:

i've been asking a lot of dog related questions lately

I am happy to report that I have found the doggie for me! Some of you may have seen my post the other day where I was whining about being patient in my search for the perfect puppy ( I don't have any pictures yet as she is still at the shelter, waiting on her last vaccination. I will be picking her up on Tuesday or Wednesday! I will share some pictures of her with you all next week (with a question, of course)! She is part border collie, part kelpie, and yes, I do have the room and energy to keep her happy. We are going to start agility training next month when she is old enough. :-) :-)

Alright, I will stop rambling now (I'm so excited, I can't help it!!) and get on wit bizness.

How did you housetrain your dog? Is she/he indoor or outdoor trained? Did you crate train her/him or did you use some other method? Were you successful or do accidents still happen? I have the Housetraining for Dummies book and another book, The Everything New Puppy Book, and both of them illustrate different methods for what I want; outdoor training.

Have a great Memorial Day, everyone! :-)

Random random question, because a friend and I are trying to remember what this is called...

Do you know what I'm talking about when I say there was a macabre kind of fairy tale for kids that had things like "A is for Annie who..." (and inserted a brutal / dark humor way of being killed/hurt) and they'd do this for every child name from A-Z?!?!?

It was called something like "the ___ tales"... What was it?!

My senior prom is on Friday, and I was asked by a guy that I barely know...he's friends with all of my guy friends, but he has very few female friends because he's EXTREMELY quiet and unexperienced with girls. He asked me because someone told him I didn't have a date, if it makes any difference; not because he's interested in me. I've heard he's a nice guy, so I said yes, but now I'm wondering...

What is prom etiquette in this situation? We're going to someone's house beforehand, but once we get to prom, is it ok if we split up? I don't mean I'm going to abandon him entirely, but I'm not the dance-with-a-guy-I'm-not-dating kind of girl, and I already told him that. So in your opinion, would it be ok for me to just dance with my friends if I make an effort to talk to him throughout the night and make sure he's having fun too (ie, I don't intend to ditch him)?

Hmmmmm. I'm new at this type of thing. Help?

[EDIT:] I'll definitely sit next to him at dinner, talk to him, ask him about the first slow dance!! As I said above, I don't intend to ditch him. What I meant is that at my school, most of the dancing between guys and girls is gross grinding-type dancing, and I'm not really into that, especially with a guy I barely know. So I'm just wondering if it's ok for me to split up when the fast songs come and dance with my friends.

1. How do you define the term, "going out"? If someone told you that he/she and person X were going out, how would you interpret their relationship?

2. Say you have been dating someone for about 4 months, but there was no official conversation of what your status was. You act like a couple, and spend tons of time together. Finally, in casual conversation, he/she asks, "do your parents know that we're going out?" This is the extent of any kind of discussion on status. So yes, you two are going out.

Based on the above information (in question #2), would it be questionable to leave your facebook relationship status set as "single"?

coug it

Yesterday my buddy and I went on a motorcycle ride out to Leavenworth and had lunch at Ducks & Drakes. While there I witnessed the most incredible reverse-cougaring I've ever even heard of.

This pretty good-looking woman, I'd put her in her early forties, almost stumbles in the door and finds a seat at the bar. She's wearing a summery dress, low-cut in the front, and she's clearly been doing what you do in Leavenworth in the afternoon, i.e. drinking. A few minutes later, this guy in his mid-twenties walks in, he looks pretty carefully put together, clean-shaven, tan, button-up white shirt, carefully done hair, generally looking pretty good except for his scrubby friend. He immediately sets his sights on middle-aged hottie and strikes up a conversation. As we finished our lunch I was still paying attention and it was pretty clear to me he was really going for it. We had to stretch our legs before getting back on the bikes, so I didn't get to finish watching the show... but riding out of town I saw scrubby guy walking home alone. Hot.

Here's the scenario - your SO wants you to go with them to spend time with a group of their friends. You don't like their friends, and would rather stay home and read. Your SO insists you come anyway, but says you can bring your book and read there.

This oven-bakeable food I got (little puff pastries) comes in a plastic tray. It says to put the plastic tray on a baking tray and bake it at 400° F. The instructions make it sound like the metal baking tray is going to prevent it from melting, but how?? Since when is it legit/possible to put plastic in the oven?

I can tell it's actually plastic because it has the number with the triangle around it plus the PETE stamp.

EDIT They cooked perfectly and look delicious and don't smell like cancerous death. I still want to know what's up with that tho.

If  you were stuck for hours on end in a rollercoaster, would you stop riding rollercoasters? Would you stop going to amusement parks?

Do you think people should be allowed to win settlement money if their relative was at fault for their death on an amusement park ride (for example, they try to switch seats while the rollercoaster is operating...they jump two fences and get decapitated by a rollercoaster, etc)?

Do you have any interesting stories about amusement parks?
