Is there a 'right' way to run? Am I doin' it wrong?
Bonus question: Why are people obsessed with unnaturally bright white teeth nowadays? I think it looks weird.
Alternatively, will you discuss instances of second hand embarrassment?
Now he can't find the unlock code for it.
Is there anywhere other than in the Order Details that it should be found? There is a nice empty space where it says it should be. Also, I didn't receive a confirmation e-mail for the purchase, yet, just for signing up for an EA account.
Basically, is there any reason why we shouldn't have this code, considering they've already taken the $50 out of my bank account?
LOL, should I eat in secret? Any tips?
So what crazy wacky things do YOU make up about yourself?? :D
I have to normally be awake around 10 or 11 a.m.
WHAT DO I DO?
Which is a more satisfying feeling?
(Assume for the sake of argument that you wear both a bra and high heels, you slave to the patriarchy, you.)
What are some similarly satisfying feelings?
I have to drive my wife to work in 2 hours...
What should I do until then?
1. Go to a 24hr walmart and faff about, maybe buy a new game or some sort of appliance, or possibly some juice (suggestions of what to buy are welcome)
2. Stay in and listen to records
3. Do something useful like wash the floor, fold laundry, that type of thing
4. Play guitar
5. Play keyboard
Because this question is dumb, what is your favorite vegetable and how do you like it prepared?
Which country do you go as and what do you wear?
GODDAMMIT YOU GUYS I USED SOY MILK AND IT DIDN'T SET UP
i never know what to say and i keep calling and im not getting called back so idk what im doing wrong...
are you nocturnal? do you miss things people do during the day cause you are sleeping?
what do you do at night when everyone is sleeping if you are still awake?
But after drinking it my mouth is dry and I'm thirsty...whats up with that?
What should I drink after this?
I HATE the sound my dog's tags clinking against the water dish when she drinks.
Do you have any airline horror stories to share with the class?
What kind of birth control do you use?
What item has the most sentimental value to you right now?
What are the strangest/cruelest/most ridiculous names you've heard about or encountered in everyday life?
My favourites would be the mother and daughter at the school I used to work at. Mom was Cinderella and her daughter was Precious-Princess(she's now in grade 10 or 11). And they both get incredibly huffy if you don't use their full names.
AHAHA AND MY ROOMMATE JUST GAVE ME ONE: Her HS principal was Mrs. Gay Loveland.
My car was on its absolute last legs before dying for good, so I went ahead and replaced her yesterday. She served me well for almost 200,000 miles, but it was her time to go.
She got replaced with this:

According to my fiancee, all cars need to be named. So I put it out to you, TQC:
What would be a good name for a gray Accord sedan with all the bells and whistles?
If not, what is your favourite non-fiction book?
I ask because on the side of this package of butter I have, it has in big red letters: 100% GLUTEN FREE. I thought to myself, "Well... duh, right?" I mean, isn't that like plastering a sign onto a big old slab of beef that says CONTAINS NO SUGAR.
But I know gluten can be sneaky and show up in places you'd never expect it to.
How do you feel about the movie ratings system in America, or your own country? If you're not from America, how do you feel your system compares to the American system (if you know about the US system at all)?
What is it?
Is it acceptable to wear a fur jacket from a vintage/second hand shop, where buying fur wouldn't have an impact on the fur trade?
What should happen to old furs then? For example, if old (deceased) aunt Dot had a mink shawl that she passed onto you and you're morally opposed to fur, do you burn the item? Throw it out? Give it a proper animal funeral?
Inspired by a few op shops that I've seen that are run by vegetarians but stock vintage furs
2)What is your favorite Civilization game?
3)Who do you think I should target with a kick in the organ of your choice?
ETA: Why do people who don't want to get pregnant have unprotected sex?
tl:dr · Nostradamus knew his stuff. He predicted the "King of Heaven", which was interpreted as either a meteor shower or a missile strike. On the date he had set for this to destroy the world it actually happened. Sure, we're all still here but on that very date Bill Clinton had bombers blow the shit outta a little place accross the sea that was ethnic cleansing parts of its population...
...and I figure from Nostradamus' point of view that probably looked like the end of the world.
Used to track a whole bunch of these and all but one has passed on by. The next biggie in the playbook is the end of the Mayan Calendar. Lots of people figure that it just means a great change, that when that particular day is over the next cycle will begin. They could be right. I for one figure expect the worse and if it doesn't turn out that way...be pleasantly surprised.
So, come that fateful day of September 12 2012 I'll be doing up a BBQ for me and my neighbors. Not my greatest skill but if the world's ending I figure it won't matter.
What will you be doing?

Also, what is your favourite macro of all time?
Or, just post macros. Macro posts are a dime a dozen, I know, but whatever, cheap and abundant can be good.
How has your week been thus far?
In 3rd grade I announced to my whole class that I was from Mars. I drew out maps of Martian cities and everything.
Is it a "meat is unhealthy" thing? A "meat tastes gross" thing? A "don't hurt the fuzzy little critters" thing?
For everyone else (or if y'all just feel like answering more questions):
Do you have a favorite SNL skit? What is it?
I love Celebrity Jeopardy.
Are there any old arcade/video games that you grew up playing, but can't find now?
Everywhere around here has done away with "Area 51" and "Maximum Force" because they're "too violent." They've been replaced with the BS, neutered "police trainer" games where all you get to shoot are bullseyes.
I saw Away We Go and yes, I was like :D that the whole time. Such a good soundtrack too!
I used to have this website where I'd go and just click and watch. No links to other sites, no downloads. But I can't remember the name. Help. :/
Also, where did my fork go? I seriously have no idea.
Is there any legitimate way for me to improve my odds of winning, aside from buying lots of Bingo cards?

...older sibling(s) as your big brother/sister or your older brother/sister? Or something else?
...younger sibling(s) as your little brother/sister, your baby brother/sister, or your younger brother/sister? Or something else?
What about those of you who are a twin/triplet/etc? Do you think of your sibling(s) as older/younger, or are they just your twin/triplet/etc?
What about sports shorts and a sports bra?
Should I mention the fact that I'm gay when I meet them tomorrow or wait?
If you DGAF, who is your favorite celebrity twitter account?
If you're bi, who would you want to switch teams for you?
Post a pic maybe.
They can be old wives' tales, urban legends, e-mail forwards, quotes attributed to Bill Gates, whatever, but they have to fall under the category of thousands of people being gullible enough to actually believe them.
I'm visiting Tampa from Friday-Monday. I'll be there mainly to see my best friend, Trish, and her new daughter. I haven't seen Trish in 5 years. However, her dude, Eric squicks me out majorly, and has since high school. Always hitting on me, cheats on her blatantly, is just pretty awful. I'm supposed to be staying with them on Friday night, and in a hotel saturday and sunday. However, Trish JUST decided to let me know, 2 days before I get there, that she can neither drop me off or pick me up at the airport. I don't drive. Their house is 1/2 hour from the airport. They want me to hang out/drink/crash on Friday night. So far, that's 'the plan'. I'm generally pretty not psyched about how she's treated the whole prospect of my visit...very nonchalant, super flakey. Total cost of cab ride from the airport to her crib - $60,
However, My friend's band has a show on Friday in Orlando. It's a 2 hour train ride. We've been *~*e-frendz*~* for 4 years, but have never met in person. Total cost of transit to the train station, train ticket there and back, cover charge, dinner and hotel, if I play it cheap: $100ish.
I'd like to save money, but I'd also like to not have the most miserable friday night ever. What do I do, Dr. Internetz?
What did you change and for who?
what do you want your funeral to be like?

If I send mail overseas, does it go to a designated "border port" in that country before going to its local destination?
Basically, I sent something to Prince Edward Island, and I've tracked the package to "Canada", at the "border", whatever that means. AFAIK the recipient hasn't received it yet even though it's been in Canada for two days. Is it possible it ended up in Toronto before PEI or something?
If your day is already awesome, will you tell me why?
I AM SO EXCITED

How can I cut a length of dried bamboo into sections without splintering it? Have you any experience with bamboo-themed arts and or crafts?
This was yesterday's Final Jeopardy clue and two of the contestants got it wrong. Final Jeopardy, srsly. The day before was something like "Mr Bell started selling these along with his hamburgers and the rest is history." In both cases only one contestant was right.
Would you have got these answers?
Do you watch Jeopardy?

Why do cat and dog breeds specific to Asian countries have such Asian features, in comparison to Western-based/registered breeds? Am I completely constructing this in my mind because my brain finds it lol-y, or is it possible that Asians (I am thinking of Japanese and Korean mostly and Chinese as well) tended to breed animals towards human beauty ideals?

Do you know anyone who is a dietitian/nutritionist?
I'm thinking I should just wait it out since bids have a habit of going higher at the end.
Does anyone know a way of creating YouTube-style flash streaming videos, but hosted on your own site? A way of just formatting your video into that style, I guess. I want the security of knowing my vids won't ever be shut down or be subject to YouTube's rules, but I do like that template of having the play/stop/etc. buttons, and not having to wait for an mpeg or mov file to load.
I'm recently addicted to The Millionaire Matchmaker OMG
Do you use it?
Would someone start a TQC stickam chat?
What the hell is this crap?! it appeared on my Facebook page. "could be disabled?" what does that mean? How long until this goes away?
ETA: The only suspicious behavior I could think of was that I was posting youtube links on one of my statuses, saying what music i was listening to. I've done this before, and nothing happened. Is this spamming or something? on my own status and nobody else commented on it?
