What if I said I was going to bring "a few"?
And if I said "some"?
And if I couldn't find apples, and instead had to bring you "a little" applesauce, how much would you expect then?
This post brought to you by my boss who ordered "a few" vials of medication, only for me to unpack 10 in our order today...now where to put all this anti-emetic...
People with foot tattoos: on a scale of say, 1-5 (1 being ok/pretty tolerable and 5 being you never want to fucking do that again), how much pain was it for you?
(And yes, I tried calling. Their call centers are closed for the night. Go figure.)
Alright I found out 2 table top games exist that I have not previously played are prevalent at a local club. The games are battle fleet gothic and battletech.
To give a tiny bit of context:
The advantages of battle tech are as follows.
lower initial cost (40 dollars for everything you need to play the most basic version of the game.
Involves giant robots.
Maybe able to get a buddy to spend money and buy his own tabletop army.
more fluff (aka story line)
more rules and models still being developed.
All the books cost moneys so as I want to go past the initial aka toned down game I have to pay for rules books.
Seems slower paced than bfg.
Could cost more longer term
Hex maps means I either need to buy my own in addition or make my own hex maps (not out of the question)
giant spaceships are a tiny bit cooler to me than giant robots.
Models have far more detail.
All of the rules are free to download legally.
Maps are very easy to construct
higher price to start playing.
slightly less popular
no longer an evolving game as the company that developed it was absorbed by its parent company and will not be putting out new rules.
Overall long term cost may even out
I enjoyed playing both.
i would have a player group no matter which i choose.
Three sentence summary for people one game battletech costs less to start, but the models are poor (aka less detail to paint) . Battlefleet gothic costs more to play initially but all the rules are free (battletechs aren't) . So over time the cost may even out. Also the maps you play these on are harder to make for Battletech. however battletech seems more popular atm. Which shoudl I choose ( im leaning towards space ships)
So which system should I choose the giant robots (the mechwarrior games were based off this tabletop game) or the space ship game (which is set in a universe I am familiar with?)
Alternate question which do you prefer giant robots or massive space ships.
Secondary alternate which day and time should I ask this girl out to cofee that im interested wth? (mind you she may be very anxious and tepid as her last relationship ended poorly and she has some trust issues). Im thinking afternoonish public cofee place shes familiar with can't get that much safer of a date i thought. Tertiary is this a good idea for a first real date? (aka just me and her none of our mutual freinds there)
Are any of them strange?

What say you TCQ?
Which is better for "stalking" Facebook? Or Twitter?
[a friend of mine says Twitter is good for stalking. I disagree.]
ETA: i am fucked, you guys, i think it is time to put on a scarf :\
Question Two: On a scale of 1-10, how fond are you of television?
Question Three: When someone says "on a scale of 1-10, how much do you like ____," do you assume that 1 means you like the thing very little or that you like the thing a whole lot?
Question Four: How many TQC spinoff communities do you belong to, and which ones are they?
If not, what do you generally think of the idea? Good/bad?
I ask because my friend and his girlfriend of 2 years broke up about a week ago, and he's pretty down about it. I want to try to cheer him up, and the other day he expressed his excitement about Transformers 2 coming out. Apparently the first Transformers movie was AMAZING!!1!!! (his words not mine..?) and he was pretty much appalled when I told him I hadn't seen it. I was thinking a fun thing to do would be to watch the first movie together and then stencil something about Transformers onto a couple of shirts for opening night. He's the kind of guy who I think would find that funny and not a total waste of time, so even if you all tell me Transformers is a disgrace to all films and that opening night will be empty, should I still suggest this idea to him for the fun of it?
And if so, any funny suggestions for the shirts? I'm running on no sleep so the best I could come up with was for one of the shirts to say, "I heart Transformers" and the other shirt saying, "I heart Transformers Too (I heart Transformers Two? I heart Transformers 2?)" with "TRANSFORMED 26.06.09" on the back. It's a pretty weak joke, I know, I know, so are there any other suggests from the collective minds of TQC?
What's your favorite kind of sushi? What's in it?
(I like a mix of textures. The best ones I've had have been spicy crunchy tuna roll, shrimp tempura roll and spider roll. The first two have obvious ingredients but whatever they use to make it crunchy is amazing. Spider roll is some sort of crab, I think soft-shell, which is amazing as well)
If you hate sushi, what was the best class you ever took in college? Worst? Why?
(Best: Sociology of Men. It focused a lot on the behavior of men in different cultures, sex and sexuality, education and in groups. Very insightful and actually made me want to pursue my education degree.
Worst: toss-up between human nutrition and a sociological research class that was considered my statistics class for my degree. Stats sucked because I struggle with math. Nutrition sucked because the prof was a bitch that told us flat out that college students were inherently lazy so she was intentionally giving us a more difficult workload and tests than necessary because we needed to learn how to work. She also said that she was pretty much planning to fail most of us from the first day of class)
I think the school I work in is haunted. Srsly!! I just started working here like a month ago, and the other teachers have told me all this freaky shit, and they told me how no one comes in really early to work or stay till really late. ALSO, it does not help that we are in the middle of the fucking forest! AND BECAUSE I AM LIVING IN AN ASIAN COUNTRY, I keep envisioning a female ghost with long black hair roaming around with bloodshot eyes! Eeeks!
I'm all alone in the staffroom right now and I feel all jittery...
I've googled this, but it was no help. I want to have my iphoto library photos as my screensaver, but there are a few pictures that I don't want to show up on the screensaver. I don't want to delete them, and I tried hiding them, but it didn't work. Does anyone know how to make certain photos not show up on your photo library screensaver?
I get to bring my new cat home on Friday!
What are you looking forward to the weekend for?
Presumption of Guilt
Do you feel that this was a fair sentence, or are you skeptical? Was it necessary that his prior conviction as a minor be brought up during the trial? Do you think the defendant raped the victim, or is he being falsely accused?
If you don't care about interesting news stories...
Dinner tonight: Thai or sushi?
dude...why EXACTLY did you think I needed a Honk Kong sunset/sunrise calculator?? WTF?
EDIT: OK...HONG KONG.....its a typo. Get over it. This is SRS BZNS people...SRSLY!
EDIT: I'm so pussed off I can't tipe straight.
He has all his other hair but his eyebrows are bald :(
Let's say hypothetically me (I'm a girl) and my boyfriend wants to have a threesome with another girl, do you think it would be better to find someone we know personally (like a friend) or a willing stranger (from craiglist or something)?
will you give me some anger management tips so that i can stop drinking so much gin?
Fluffy white bread, smooth peanut butter, grape jelly. NOM.
What about your PERFECT grilled cheese sandwich?
White or whole wheat bread, lots of butter, and Kraft singles (this is the only instance in which I will eat that crap), dipped in lots of ketchup. Sometimes adding tomato and/or bacon and/or some oregano if I'm feeling snazzy.
What are your plans for the day?
Shower in a few mins, wait for my check to clear (which it should do by noon), and go SHOPPING omg. Make dinner and study later, maybe watch a movie or two.
ps, i am not getting an apple.
i'm on maternity leave but still pregnant, and i'm superbored.
going places isn't an option because i don't have easy access to transportation most of the time, and walking around at this point SUCKS.
most of my shows are in reruns, and i have a really short attention span for reading, but if you recommend a specific book, i'll definitely consider it once i'm done reading "the bodyguard."
My question is, how should I kill him the next time he whines about being tired and achy? This has been going on for months and I'm ready to murder him. Also, do you think there may be something else wrong with him that his making him so lethargic and sore?
What are some other catalogs I can order, similar to www.harrietcarter.com/ with a bunch of random crap and things from infomercials etc?
What catalogs do you like getting in the mail?
My mom was supposed to visit me this weekend but because of some family drama (not from me), I think it is better for her to be at home. Problem is, she has a promotional air-ticket which cannot be refunded and has to travel by June 30.
Question: Do you think if I make up some swine flu case(eg: i came in contact with people infected with swine flu OR my housemate has swine flu so it's risky for my mom to visit), will they allow us to change the dates without penalty?
If this was not urgent, I wouldn't joke about swine flu. :x
Do you think parents should be more careful and observant of the ESRB rating a game has when buying them for their children?
Do you pay attention to the ratings your videogames carry?
What is the highest rated videogame you own?
*link to story about "Halo Killer".
Situation: Guy has been dating this girl for a short period of time, and she won't have sex with him because it's too soon. Then the girl has some tragic experience, which seems to have given her amnesia and makes her think she is no longer her old self, but a street-smart stripper named Dakota who'll do anybody. Guy fucks the shit out of "Dakota".
IMPORTANT ETHICAL QUESTION: Is this cheating.....or rape? o_O

I just had a really vivid dream of my old boyfriend coming over, and getting back together with me. We basically sat around my living room while I recorded DVDs then my grandma left and I went to put on underwear while he was in the bathroom, he walked into the room, sat down and I woke up. So strange to me.
It's a 2009 Civic with a black interior and sport interior trim. It's mostly cleaned up, but some salsa, sour cream and cheese are set into the fabric.
2)what does, besides lettuce?
3)Iceberg, what are your thoughts on it?
I don't like it.
So, I've decided I need to just be busier and then I wouldn't be so worried about my LDR. I don't start my internship for another two weeks x_X
So TQC, what do you do to keep busy? What are your hobbies?
On the cob?
Out of a can?
Something else entirely?
Are any of you familiar with free online games for kids that support early reading skills? Anything from the single world level up to paragraphs would be great. I'm doing my googling, promise, but I'm either coming up with just free games (that don't necessarily require a lot of reading) or with reading programs that aren't free.
2. Do you think the gender generalizations for marriage-- that women want to get married and men don't-- are more or less true, in your experience?
3. What do you think contributes to someone's desire to get married or not get married-- if anything?

Can you think of something other than carnitas to buy when I go grocery shopping today (at TJ's)? It's been a while since my last trip and I've spent much effort eating almost everything that was edible but forgotten/excess, and I need all the basic tasty and fresh foods.
2. What's your favorite song about falling out of love?

TQC, what kind of "sexy pictures gone horribly horribly wrong" should I send him? Pictures are good.
Have you ever had a moment where you were trying to be sexy but it didn't work? Stories please.
What's the last thing that really pissed you off?
how do you feel and react to big changes?
what was the last big change in your life?
do birthdays affect you in a way they make you feel weird? (if it's a big age birthday, or a big milestone)
how comfortable are you with your weight?
is it raining where you live?
Also, what is the most awesome summer activity that you would recommend to everyone? The less cliched, the better.
so, worst euphemisms for girl parts?
I cried near the end of Marley & Me, someone asked if I was ok since I looked sad at the conclusion of Bolt. A tear actually escaped when I was wrapping up Gran Torino this afternoon. I almost cried in a public theater showing The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.
I feel like a wuss for nearly crying at movies. This was never a problem until a few months ago.
Is there a way to be less-sensitive?
I wouldn't mind if I was watching these movies by myself, but I have friends and family around, and I hate having to feign coughing or going to get a drink to conceal my emotions. I'm about ready to keep some liquor on hand to drink during sad films, but I really don't want to do that.
I just found my Perfect Summer Dress at WalMart. I hate myself. lol
Does your car have license plates on both the front and back, or just the front/just the back?
Mine only has one on the back. I am pretty sure that where I grew up (NJ) it's illegal to not have plates on the front and back.
Needed for a school production - we're on a tight budget!!!
I can't work there anymore. Fortunately, my old boss works at a store one hour away, and has agreed to let me transfer.
Obviously, it's going to cost a lot of money to drive back and forth to the new store, but I'm going off to college on August 20th, so it might be too late to find a new job.
Has anyone had any luck finding a job that would let them work for two months, and then quit? I'd feel bad about lying on my application, or in the interview.
i have just had my wisdom teeth removed and my face is hurty. i am hungry and sort of sleepy from the pain medication. will you recommend to me a movie to watch, and food to eat?
have you had your wisdom teeth out?
will you share your dental horror stories with me?
I recently wasted a few minutes making this.

When was the last time you wished you had a camera? Bonus points if you did have a camera and can show me a picture.
Any recommendations on cheap, reliable service?
(The website won't have a lot, nor will it see a lot of traffic, its just for a family run restaurant)
Are you willing to accept that when the Bible verse Isaiah 66:8 was written, it was unheard of for a nation to come into existence in a single day?
2)i have very sensitive teeth/gums, because it turns out i have a whopping 10 cavities all inbetween my teeth. a medium soft or even a soft toothbrush will still make my gums bleed or is just uncomfortable. should i suck it up and use a soft one, or should i get maybe a childs one that wont hurt? i got a supersoft from the dentist and loved it, but dropped it on the floor after my toilet overflowed, and cant find an adult sized supersoft in the store.

The bag says, "Rogers Natural Fine Granulated Sugar. Try our organic sugar from Rogers. Grown and processed responsibly using only natural herbal extracts and vegetable purifiers, Rogers Organic Sugar respects the earth and the people who tend it. It's sugar for our world. Use this pale gold free-flowing sugar as you would refined sugar." (I have trouble believing that last sentence, I don't care what they say).
How often do you get suckered into buying something because it's on sale?
Idk if it's a favourite, but Gilmore Girls taught me "In omnia paratus!" :P
However, after looking at this list, I've come to really like "Quidquid latine dictum sit, altum videtur" which means "Anything said in Latin sounds profound", "Non fui, fui, non sum, non curo" , which means "I was not, I was, I am not, I don't care.", and "Iurare in verba magistri", which means "Swear by the words of the teacher."
Also, I've always liked "Post hoc, ergo propter hoc", "After this, therefore because of this"
So I'm learning to try new vegetables and I've looked up how to prepare corn on the cob. For boiling; to add sugar, or not to add sugar? Why or why not, which is better? (plz do not say 'it depends on what you like/your tastes' because I've never had it before. also, I know not to add salt while boiling because that makes a tough and sucky corn on the cob.)
P.s. thanks everyone who helped me with the "find a club" question last night!
Have you ever had anything published/displayed/featured?
I'm 22 and I did recently, but honestly, I knew I had to get some decent rest before I went to work and it was the only way I was getting back to sleep, then, so, really...it was the responsible thing to do.
If you don't know, then what do you think is the worst crime against fashion? And what have you got that would shock the fashion police?

How many of the Harry Potter books have you read?
The smell and taste make me feel sorry for myself (lol) and I always make a face when swallowing it down D: It reminds me of my parents having to hold my arms and legs down and forcing me to take cough syrup when I was ill as a kid. I hated the stuff :(
When you're taking medication, what do you wash it down with?
I never ever wash it down with water, the taste is rancid! I always wash it down with something sweet, but people always freak out when they see me doing that. Why??
Basically, I'm going on a two week holiday soon and I only booked 7kgs(15lbs) of travel baggage (carry-on baggage. I used a really cheap airline, so in order to get the usual 20kgs you have to pay extra, which I didn't want to do).
- I would really like to bring some 'going out' clothes, because last time I went to this place I wasnt old enough to go clubbing =( (and now I can!)
- However, it's pretty cold where I'm going (20C/68F during the day and 8C/46F during the night)
2. What sort of clothes would you pack?
I plan on trying to figure out exactly how much 7kgs worth of clothes actually is (in terms of, how many shirts/pants etc I can actually have...) soon.
Edit: I have friends at the place that I'm going to, so I was thinking that i could just bring my going out stuff and borrow casual/warm stuff from friends? Good idea Y/N ?
Thanks for your help!
What is your opinion?
Do you keep old cd cases?
So my question, mainly to those of you with really fair skin, is: what, in your experience, is the BEST SUNSCREEN IN THE WORLD? Something waterproof with at least spf45, and I'd prefer not to have to apply it every 10 minutes, but I'll do what I gotta do.
Would it depend on the distance? If so how far is too far?
ETA: Would the amount of time change your answer? Let's call 6 months the shortest amount of time that it counts as long distance.
Personally, I don't think I could do it. I find myself starting to forget what people look like after a few days, and i'd find it incredibly hard to maintain interest in someone I was only talking to over the phone. Plus, I can't help but think there would always be an element of jealousy.
What should I have for dinner? It has to either be something I can buy, or something that's quick and easy to make, I'm not going to make a big meal, it's just me.
Were you a good student?
If you were moving at the end of the month, who would you ask to help you?
-For a work originated before 1978, renewal is optional after 28 years. Not sure what the original term was.
-The 1976 Copyright Act extended the renewal term from 28 to 47 years, for a total protection period of 75 years.
-A 1998 act extended this period another 20 years (to 67) and provided a total term of protection of 95 years.
1. Would you agree my copyright expires in 2055?
2. If I have a Copyright Renewal document executed in 1988, what would you calculate as my new expiration date?
After 1978 the law changed, and for works of the kind I am registering would put expiration of copyright at 95 years from publication or 120 years from creation, whichever comes first. I'm uncertain if my renewal in the 80s counts under the pre- or post-1978 terms. What do you think?
I tried law_questions for this a while ago and got a bunch of guesses, and I think I'd like TQC's guesses and general jiggery-pokery more :D
What was the last thing you felt like shouting and why?
They always tell me these really fucked up stories like how Matt holds Liz down and tells her he's going to rape her while she screams and Ashley has to pull him off. I also know that these guys have illegal guns that they like to get drunk and fuck around with in the apartment while Liz and Ashley are over there.
They keep going back to these guys' place, and think Matt and Justin are "cool" and "gangster." The worst part is that my stepmother knows about 99% of what goes on over there and doesn't care, she just keeps letting them go stay the night with these random guys. I've tried to talk to my dad about it but he tells me that I don't need to worry about it. I am seriously afraid that something terrible is going to happen to Liz or Ashley. Neither of the girls go to school (Liz is on summer break and Ashley is a dropout), so I can't go to a school counselor or anything like that.
Does anyone have any advice before my stepsisters get shot/gangbanged/murdered/etc?
ETA: Talking to these girls isn't going to help. I've tried, and they just become offended and think I'm saying that they're not mature enough or whatever. I'm almost twenty years old and both of them consider themselves to be smarter/more mature/more experienced than me.

for a date (dinner and drinks) and i don't even know if it looks decent at all on me, i never wear dresses. i also have no idea what shoes to wear with it. i have these shoes in silver and i was thinking that might be cute, but would it matter that the sole is that brown color? if that idea sucks, can you recommend some kind of footwear? it's a nice silky fabric and i am wearing a black sweater thing over it during dinner, if that matters.
also, i am very short (5'1) and the dress didn't come in numerical sizes, just small, medium, large, etc. my mom thinks i should get it hemmed a couple of inches or so because it was meant to be a little bit higher and its current length makes me look even shorter. what do you think? or would shorter look skanky? oh man, i should probably just wear jeans. please help :(
i thought it would be a good way to spend a Friday night but then i remembered watching slasher movies alone sucks.

But since I am in town, should I show up and complete this task that will take me all of one minute? Or should I stop feeling guilty and pretend that I'm out of town?
