TQC I went to deposit a check for $200.00 in my bank account on Saturday; I was going to just cash it, but decided to go ahead and only cash $80 of it, and deposited the other $120, giving me a total of #133.17 in my checking account. I got my cash and left. The next day, I debited $41.44 and $54.37, both of which were approved. I had a pending charge of $6.00 (a monthly payment for hosting) and $4.87 for Starbucks. I logged onto online banking today to see that my available balance is $-92.65. I check, and it has my deposit listed first (at the bottom of the pending list), followed by my two larger debits, then my smaller transactions...but they're all pending.

Soooo, how any overdraft fees will I be assessed?

My external drive died tonight. It seems that commander_d may have left it too close to the edge, and when I bumped the desk it fell.

So, I'm going to replace it this weekend, and I'm looking for suggestions. I've gone from 320GB to 500GB, and I'm debating upgrading to 1TB.  So, my question(s):

Do you have an external drive? If you do, what brand is it? Are you happy with it? What size is it? Where did you get it?

If you don't, or you just don't care, what was the last song you listened to? Bonus points for embeds or links. :)

road trip!

Dear TQCers, I need your help!

I want to go on a one-day-only road trip starting from where I live in Maryland, but I don't know where to go. So, assuming I:

1. Haven't been to very many places in the U.S.
2. Don't want to spend more than five hours in the car (meaning 10 hours there and back)
3. Am willing to travel anywhere, and
4. Don't want to go somewhere that's ridiculously expensive...

Where do you suggest I go? What should I see and do?

Thanks, TQC!

I know that a lot of people are probably going to say "well, gee, I WISH I had that problem" but this is kinda serious.

Has anyone ever had an issue with a sex partner that ALWAYS takes a long time?  as in....30-45 minute (or more!) sessions.  every. single. time.

How can I "encourage" a quickie?  I don't know whether is physical, mental, or some combination of the two, but my partner takes forever...

And yes, we have spoken about it, directly and indirectly.  I'm at a loss as to what to do.  We'd have a lot more sex if we were able to fit in a 10 minute session here and there, instead of needing to plan and block out an entire hour and a half span.

Advice?  Ideas?  comments telling me to stuff it and take what I can get?

I started work in a clothing store a couple  of months ago and I can safely say that I enjoy it. I do all the jobs asked of me, even the shitty ones, I talk away to the customers, I've never been late, I've only had one day off and I've worked extra if asked to.

The other day my manager spoke to me and said I should think long and hard about if I want to stay there as I'm not enthusiastic enough. I was pretty shocked so didn't query it. Now I'm trying to get my head round it.

What do you think I should be doing to seem more enthusiastic?

Bitch!

I'm not fond of that word. A 'bitch' is a female dog and frankly, if you were to find a woman so bad that you felt the need to call her that it's really more insulting to the dogs. I'm a dog kinda guy, wouldn't bother me if it were derogatory about cats, so I don't choose to associate dogs with horrible women.

Trying to find a better word to use instead.

I just opened some tofu and I'm not sure if what I found is normal or not. I am an infrequent tofu user. Usually, it's packed in water that is very watery. This time the water was somewhat gelatinous. It didn't smell any worse than tofu usually does, it's within the use by date, and it has been kept refrigerated. Is this normal?

I have contacted the company but they are very small and haven't gotten back to me yet. I was planning on using it this afternoon, so I figured I'd ask here.


Whether you can help with the tofu or not, will you post the most recent photo you uploaded? Not just of you, whatever the most recent is.

edit: Sounds like the tofu is probably fine, so just give me your pictures!

I'm in an online math class because I wasn't happy with the C I got in my first semester of algebra. The problem is, this math class is harder, I'm doing worse, and there's no one to really help me because it's online. I have no motivation to do it as well since it's summer time.
*edit: I'm also running out of time, I have 7 more lessons and 2 exams and a week or so to do them.


Should I keep doing it, although my grade is worse and I don't know how to do the work?
Should I face my parents' wrath and quit, and promise to pay them back (it cost $170)?

As a hetero female, I don't care if a lesbian or a gay guy is in the ladies' room with me, I don't see how they're a threat. I'm just there to do my thing, and get out. I'm just throwing this question out there to see how others feel.

I edited this again because I don't think I was making myself clear, and made some people upset.

Which class would you rather take?

Class A is $800 and you will not receive credit for it, but you will learn a ton and the professor will know what he is doing. It will also require a 2 hour commute including, driving, tolls, the train, and the subway. The commute will end up costing about $25/day not including gas.

Class B is a 20 minute drive from home and you will get credit for it. You won't learn nearly as much and there is a good chance the professor will not know what they fuck they are talking about. It will cost ~$500.

I think the song was about some girl visiting and a guy liking her but she's going home for a few weeks, and she leaves him her number. There's also a part where they play on words. (for some reason the lyrics "I have got the time, but you don't have a reason" are popping in my head). Ring a bell?

I've recently been talking with this girl I know from school; we've never really talked before know, and today she said something so stupid that I had to stop myself from shouting at her. A direct quote: "I hate black people." ....umm, okay? I swear, it was so weird, one second we were talking about school and what we are looking forward to this new school year, then that! "....Okay....why?" was my response, then she comes back at me with this lame reasoning.... "they're always mean to me!" .....wow, well then, I guess I must hate all races, because I get made fun of all the time, no matter the race. "Well....are they mean to you because your white...." I tried to get more out of her but apparently she's just an idiot. "No, their just mean to me because of who I am!" ....

Now let me explain something, from what i've learned from this girl is that she's like me, we get bullied a lot by practically everyone, , yeah I get made fun for who I am a lot and how I dress, ect, and she the same, so what the hell is this girls problem? (She isn't from the south! she's lived here all her life! i'm pretty sure it isn't the way she was raised either because i'm friends with her sister)

Canadian Passports

Hello

Questions for people who have applied for a Canadian Passport in the last year or so:

- How did you apply? By mail, in person?

- How long did it take to actually receive your passport?

- If you went in person, how long did you have to wait in line for?

- Were there any issues, things you had forgotten, etc?

I'm thinking of applying by mail, because I don't have any particular trip planned, but I also don't want it to take 4 months or anything. The time frame on their website says "up to 4 weeks", so just wondering if that is actually typical.

Thanks!

A series of unrelated questions...

1a- If you were invited to go somewhere, who would you go with?
Person A - you just met them like two weeks ago, and might get laid if you go with them (but it's not 100%)
Person B- a friend you've had for 10 years and who has been wanting to take you to this place for YEARS because it's their favorite place on earth?
1b- How hurt would you be if you were person B and found out your friend went with someone else and not you?

2- My cousin is getting married on September 11th. Which is a Friday. The groom is a lead singer in a Metallica cover band. He will be performing at his own reception. Do you go?

3- My sister is fostering a 3 week old kitten. He was born with no eyes, but everything else is fine. He's pretty damn cute and fuzzy. She's trying to think of a name....they were calling him Stevie, but I think that's too cliche. I suggested Radar or Keller. Thoughts?

Does anyone have seizures? I was participating in a Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) experiment and I think it caused a simple partial seizure, I certainly had many of the symptoms I've found listed in the internet. But I can't see anything about after a seizure. I just went home afterwards but I still feel odd. So my question is, what happens after a simple partial seizure? Will anything else happen? OR will I be ok after an early night?

I hope this makes sense, I'm not feeling so hot on the spelling and grammar.

TQC, I need advice.  Again.

I just moved cross-country.  I arrived at my new apartment on Friday.  I have been job-hunting like crazy, as we moved because of Husband.

I just got a phone call for a front-office job at a very busy neurosurgery practice at a rather large hospital system in my new city.  I have an interview tomorrow at 10 AM.  Here is the issue:

Between my jackass husband only packing half of my shoes and jackass mother not shipping them when she said she would, I do not have a nice pair of shoes to wear to this interview.  I'm going to wear a white cotton skirt and a yellow knit top-thing, and I only have an ugly-ass pair of sandals that will even kind of match this outfit.  They're low-heeled and appropriate for an interview, but they are fucking UGLY.  I don't have any kind of shoes that would be appropriate for another outfit.

Should I wear the ugly shoes or should I go buy new ones?  I'm short on time and funds.

If you had your own country, what rights would you make sure your people have?

What laws would you pass?

What would be your National Anthem be?

What would your national colours be?

Metric or Imperial?

What would your nation be called? How about the capital city?

What else?

I was discussing national anthems with my husband, when I suddenly had an image of thousands of people with their hands over their hearts singing "Carry On My Wayward Son" and I have yet to stop loling about it.

We decided that if nothing else, if we ran a country and were announcing the choice for national anthem, we would definitely play this first just to screw with people before announcing the real one.

I've googled and googled, but I still can't figure out...

Can the animals in zoo exhibits see through the glass they're behind?

Today I went to the Houston aquarium and several of the animals seemed to focus on people in the crowd. Now I know they can HEAR through the glass, so I kept an eye on the people who weren't being tapping-on-the-glass jerks, and the animals still focused on them too! It was especially apparent in the white tiger exhibit. I'm pretty imaginative when it comes to animals though, so maybe I'm giving them more credit than is due.

What's that movie?

a year or so ago, I went to a strange movie theater that plays a lot of foreign and non-mainstream films. I think I was there to see Mongol or Religulous. I saw a trailer for a very strange film. It was rotoscoped animation, kind of like A Scanner Darkly. It was some kind of sci-fi political thriller with explosions and helicopters flying over a city, which looked really cool, but I can't remember the name so I can't look it up. What is this?

do textbooks have different ISBNs for each edition? if i search for a book by ISBN alone, will i get the most recent edition, or could i get any of the editions?

my school doesn't provode the ISBNs on their website so i need to make sure my googling is finding me the right books.


new questions: can you look up the required text books on your school website? do they provide the ISBN on the website? is it ridiculous that some schools don't?

So one of my close friends who I've known for about 4 years all of a sudden is on a break from her boyfriend (also a good friend of mine) and has started hanging out with a new group of people. We all work at a summer camp together so I know her new group of friends. I really don't like them because they're way too into drama which I am too old for and are pretty rude. She has done a lot of rude things this summer, especially excluding me, her bf, and another close friend from hangouts with the new friends. I still want to be friends with her because I love her, but I don't like her new friends and she's changing a lot & is similar to these friends now. She says I'm her best friend but she never calls me, texts me, wants to hang out. So I'm not sure how to be her friend right now.

What do I do? Lately, we've been making kind of awkward small talk but not talking about anything serious. Should I explain why I can't be her friend right now? She kind of already knows, but we haven't fully discussed it. I don't want to just ignore her but it's a weird situation.

If you don't care, what's the last issue/ fight you've had with a friend? How did you get over it? Or did the friendship end?

my friend is deathly afraid of sharks. like so afraid when we were walking on a bridge in Milwaukee she could almost let her mind get carried away enough to imagine sharks in a river in Wisconsin. i asked her if she would be scared if we were in a pool and i had a shark fin on my back and she said maybe.


so, i can't decide, am i totally excited to break the horrible news to her that there ARE fresh water sharks or should i spare her and keep it to myself?

What yummy foods are high calorie? (I like fruits, red meat, and white bread, stuff like that. And ice cream.)
I have trouble gaining/maintaining weight, just 'cause I don't get hungry enough. Do you have appetite issues?
Have you ever counted calories? I'm trying to keep track of mine. Evidently I'm only consuming around 1000, and should be at 1700-1800.
What's something you like for absolutely no good reason? I LOVE the serial comma, and it irritates the crap out of me when people don't use it, to the point where I correct it in books. In ink.
