So, I want to develop a taste for/learn to like coffee. So I ask you, TQC coffee-drinkers, what can I do to coffee to make it palatable for me so I can work my way into the high-class world of Elitist College-Aged Coffee Drinkers?
What time should the tour de france riders be crossing the finish line (give of take 1/2 hour)? Or if it makes it easier to not figure out timezones, in how many hours will they be crossing the finish line?
I have decided to become a terrorist. I am going to be a "traditional terrorist." I plan to go around to various cities and countries, sneak up on people, and say, "BOO!" How do you feel about nonviolent terrorism? What should my cause be? How do you say "boo" in other languages?
In the US, do doctors have access to what medicines are covered by your medical insurance plan? I know pharmacists do as they always tell me that the medicine prescribed by Doc is not covered by insurance or there's an alternative that's cheaper, etc. Do doctor's have access to this information? Because it annoys me to make a trip to the doctor, take the prescription to the pharmacy and then find that it's not covered and to change the prescription the doctor will charge for the change. So, I have to debate which is a cheaper way to go about it. Luckily for me, my conditions have not been dire enough that I couldn't go back to get it changed, etc.
I ask as I am heading off to see the doctor tomorrow. (And thanks for all the helpful responses! I haven't gone completely paranoid yet! :) )
Two days ago, a perfume bottle broke in my purse. I like this purse very much and am also too busy to be fucked with trying to find a new one. I have tried washing the purse with laundry detergent and drying it, but it still reeks. Does anyone have any idea how to get the smell out of my purse? It's fake leather on the outside with what appears to be a synthetic sort of fabric liner on the inside.
one of my cats has been sneezing and stuff a lot lately and hasn't been sleeping well AT ALL, and she's also been sleeping in secluded places where she doesn't normally sleep. she also seems to have problems swallowing and this morning i found some greenish liquid on the kitchen floor, and there seems to be the same liquid down one of her front legs. i already took her to the vet last tuesday and they thought maybe it was allergies, so they gave her a shot that's supposed to last ten days, but she doesn't seem to be much better. the other cat was sneezing a bit but she's pretty much fine now.

You and your SO/close friend are going out together for the night. Your SO/friend drives their car and you ride along. Sometime during the night, they get high/drunk and can no longer drive their car. You end up driving their car back to your place, and you have the following options. What do you choose?
How do you explain to someone that your beliefs are completely opposite to those they taught you? My family are meat loving (and dairy loving) farmers. I'm vegan. What's your favourite type of pie? Apple, although when I get my marshmellow kit that might change to jaffa marshmallow.
I already asked whatwasthatone , but I figured I'd ask TQC too to see if anyone had their memories jogged.
Do you remember a children's cartoon exercise/music video cassette series from the early nineties featuring a spotted cat (either a leopard or cheetah) with sunglasses and some other animal? I believe they went around a city. The cat might have had a beret and vest, and for some reason I'm thinking that the other animal was a rhinoceros. Any help would be much appreciated - thanks!
Do you wash your dishes as you dirty them? Or do you leave it until you have a sinkful/no clean ones?
Do you ever leave dishes in the sink overnight?
What is the longest period of time you have left dirty dishes in the sink?
If you use a dishwasher exclusively, do you run it only when it is full? Do you empty it right away, or do you leave it for so long that you and/or other people end up putting dirty dishes in with the clean so you have to run it all over again?
A car is left parked in the street in front of your house with the windows rolled down and the key in the ignition. You don't recognize it so you ask all your neighbors about it and none of them know where it came from, either.
1. Would you think it was suspicious or possibly stolen, and call the cops and report it?
Say you did call the cops and report it, and they came by and said "it's legally parked; what's the problem?" and drove off without investigating it. So the car continues to sit there in front of your house with the key in the ignition and the windows down... for three days.
2. Would you get curious about the car? 3. Would you start wondering if there was a body in the trunk, or a bomb, or think up any other imaginative scenarios for why the car is there? 4. Would you take a peek in the car to see if you could find any contact information for the owner?
I contributed to a group discussion about social economic systems, mainly capitalism, socialism and communism. When I said there was a difference between fascism and communism, one man replied saying something along the lines of "communism is neo-manorialism, where everyone owns a part of everything and in effect nothing, resulting in serfdom to the all powerful state".
Does feudalism come to mind when you think of communism?
Does owning a part of something really mean you own nothing?
"Black people are so lucky; they age so gracefully!"
Am I being a little extreme to think the above quote stinks of white privilege? What are your feelings, TQC?
EDIT: Maybe I don't have a firm grasp on the term 'white privilege', but I assume it's... what really brings on the ignorance. It's like this person didn't see that the color of their skin any significance other than, you know, how it functions anatomically and how pretty it looks.
So, around four o'clock, Dad invited the neighbours and their creepy child over to hang out for a drink and to play in our paddling pool.
It's now six-thirty, we've been sneakily prepping dinner since FIVE, and they're just sitting around, AWKWARDLY.
So they've been invited to stay for dinner, and have accepted, despite the fact that we have only enough dinner prepared for three people instead of six. My mother and I are groaning inwardly and honestly, if it were me, I'd pack up the car and just GO somewhere else while Dad can do his own damn entertaining at the drop of a hat.
Is it my imagination, or is this rude as hell on their part to essentially reeeeally outstay their welcome and make things awkward for those of us doing the cooking? Also, does someone need to beat my father's tactless ass?
1) Do you have any piercings? Where are they? Will show me a picture of them?
2) If I get my nostril or eyebrow pierced and then don't like it and take it out how much of a scar would be left? How long would it take for piercings to heal enough that I could take them out when I have to be somewhere "respectable"?
3) How much of a bad idea is it to pierce myself?
4) On a scale of 1 to ridiculously awesome, how awesome are these shoes?
I'm visiting my boyfriend's home and there is something that I think is weird: The door of the bathroom has a window. So actually, whoever wants to see people doing their business in the bathroom, can do so with all freedom. Granted, the glass is not completely transparent but a little blurry. It bothers me still.
Is this weird? Or do lots of families have doors like this one? Any ideas to avoid people looking at me while I'm using that bathroom? I can't use the other one because that one, even though the door is a normal one, cannot be locked.
Science creates this new device that can transfer all pain, discomfort and bloating of menstruation to someone else. This PMS proxy bearer must volunteer and agree to have the effects transferred to them. This process becomes popular among the rich, who outsource all the uterus hurt to another. Those that agree to accept this period burden find that they have a choice to change their own menstrual cycle, to either make it last twice as long, Or, make it twice as painful, to reflect the additional load. The going price for period transferal goes for $1,000 per period, but because of the nature of this new technology that makes it possible, the volunteers have to agree to accept 12 months of the transference, so it comes down to 12k for a year for twice as annoying periods, and once the process starts, it can't be undone and the recipient of the period must endure the next 12 months. In order to qualify as a period surrogate, the recipient has to agree to go off all forms of birth control/menstrual regulation. When the donor woman is on the rag, the recipient herself won't bleed, but her next period will then be extra long or extra painful.
Would you agree to become a volunteer, and if so, how would you like your periods to be; twice as painful, or to last twice as long?
1. Guys, should I order some and see if it works? 2. If someone gave you a case, would you drink it and see what happened or sell it to other suckersbelievers? 3. Would you think less of a friend who did order some?
Now that the serious business is handled: I have an appt. with financial aid on Tuesday, but I'd like to get a jump on this question if I could. I have good grades, and get a scholarship for that, but I still owe $350 plus about $450 in books/materials. I was offered an unsubsidized loan, in the amount of $3,250. If I need that loan for the extra $800, do I have to accept it all, or can I just take part of it?
How do you take notes? Do you outline with the tradition I. > A > 1 > a > i? what comes after "i" if you need to be hyper specific?
what was that photo animation website? like it ad some guys name in it, that everyone used? where you took photobooth pictures and made them move, like agif file D: idk lame expliation but you get the idea.
Is there anoter way to access the list of options that appear when you right click? My right button is broken and I don't want to have to change my left button to act as my secondary button. It's a laptop by the way.
