If you knew a seven year old child whose parents and adoptive/foster parents gave up how would you feel?

Would you bring them into your home?

Would it make a difference if they were a blood relation?

Would it make a difference if you knew the child had been a crack baby?

Randomly hypothetical questions about not shoplifting

Say you spend half an hour or so looking around a department store, try on a few things but don't buy anything, then leave, and as you're walking away from the store, a store security guard approaches you and tells you they believe you have shoplifted something and asks you to return to the store with them... but you have not in fact stolen anything...

1. What would you do? Go with them? Tell them to get lost? Tell them if they think you stole something, they should go ahead and call the cops?

2. What rights do they actually have, as far as detaining you goes (in the US)? What are they allowed to do, if you just tell them to get lost and walk away?

3. Once it has been established that you didn't steal anything, would you kick up any kind of fuss over the incident, complain to the store manager, attempt to get financial compensation from them for the embarrassment/humiliation of being publicly accused of shoplifting?

ola TQC.

i've been feeling pretty shitty since last monday - daily migraines and runny nose. my phleghm was and still is yellow which apparently indicates an infection? i thought i'd be fine by the weekend but after some really hardcore karaoke, my throat has taken its toll. i still have the migraines and the runny nose but now my chest hurts 1000x more and instead of the phleghm being 'expelled' through my nose, i am coughing them up. i have not had a day of rest in the past week.

what do you propose i should do? stay home and get some fucking rest and try to get better (which may mean missing classes - some for the 3rd time in a row :/ - i am awful i know), or stop being a whiner?

while we're on the subject, what is the best way to get rid of a very irritating, painful chesty cough?

Can you use chopsticks? If so, how good are you at using them?
I can, but I've really just started learning, so I'm still not very good at it. I'm practicing, though!

What are you doing today, TQC?
I want to go out and take some pictures since it's been forever and a half since I've used my camera, but I'm not sure. If I don't end up doing that, I'll probably just hang out at home and watch movies/read manga/entertain myself somehow.

What do you think is the next movie you'll go see in theaters?
Hopefully it'll be Ponyo.

damaged dress

I bought a dress last week at BCBG for my birthday. It cost a lot more than I would normally spend on a dress, and I had to save for a considerable amount of time to get it. I went out to dinner and for a few drinks, nothing huge. When I got up this morning and checked out my dress, I noticed that there is a rip in the seam in the back of the dress. I just bought the damn thing and it's ripped after wearing it one time. Would you take it to the store and let them know what happened to try to exchange it or get some sort of compensation? What should I do?? I'm really upset about this. 

pS- It wasn't too small or anything, I'm usually a 2 and the dress is a 6.  

EDIT: Just to clarify, the dress didn't rip from me catching it on something, it just sort of fell apart at the seam- it wasn't reinforced correctly or something. Had I been dancing and acting crazy it would have been a different story, but i was just sitting around. Regardless, I took it to the store today and they are having their tailor fix it for me at no cost. Apparently, most BCBG dresses have warranties. Thanks for your help!

What's the last disgusting nickname for genitalia you heard?

I just heard someone on TV refer to their penis as "the baby arm". *shudders* GROSS. Now all I can picture is a detached doll's arm protruding from the crotch of my SO.

Honesty is the best policy!

This question was inspired by something that happened, so bear with me.

Anyway, this weekend was my friend (we'll call her Friend A)'s father's funeral. My sister and I went to go see Friend A, and noticed that a few of the people we know didn't show up. Enter Friend B, who was also expected to be there. Friend B texts my sister a message saying she plans to hook up with a guy she met. Right after that, she sends Friend A a text message saying how sorry she was that she couldn't be there, she was stranded on some highway and wouldn't make it in time. My sister decides to show Friend A the message she got, and predictably, Friends A & B aren't speaking right now.

A couple of our friends (not related to the whole thing) said it was harsh to show Friend A the text and that it was Friend B's business if she didn't want to come, so now I'm curious.

What would you have done?

Shown Friend A the text.
Kept it a secret.

How honest are you with your friends? Do you sometimes keep things from them because you think it'll protect them, or do you think it's better to tell them everything? Details and anecdotes encouraged!

I haven't gone to buy my texts books yet for school. They said just to take my schedual to a bookstore and they will show me the books I need to buy. Any bookstore? I'm going to a community college so are the books the same? How much do these books normally run? I'm taking English and math. I'm not sure what the numbers are of the classes though.

On a non back to school note, what did you eat for breakfast? What would you rather have eaten?

1. What is something that is given a nicer name to cover up what it really is? The best example I can think of is calling dead cow bits "beef".

2. Do you know what you call that kind of thing? Is it a euphemism or something else?

3. I have been super productive today, why is this? Does it relate to all the cocaine I took in my dream last night?

4. What is the scariest dream monster you have had? I had birds that in my dream were "kookaburras" but had much flatter heads than the real thing, and big rows of sharp gnashy teeth and cranky eyes. Possibly not the scariest, but one of the scariest recent ones.

5. Have you even been trapped into having a relationship with someone? How did this happen?

what are some foods to avoid when you have a cough? all i have around the house are pasta and fried food. i am craving french fries!

how serious does my cough have to be before i see a doctor? my phleghm is yellow/green and there are some bloody specks in it. i've had the runny nose for a week but only developed a cough yesterday. i'm quite wary of going to the doctor, i don't want to go out in the blistering hot sun and pay $60 just for him to tell me to rest.

I got thinking while at Target today.

I know that on What Not To Wear they tell you to buy nicer (more expensive) pieces, that then possibly have to be altered to fit really nice, rather than buying junk at Old Navy or Target.

And I can see that better-made clothing is going to last a lot longer. I know that they are talking about 'classic-looking' pieces, too.

But all clothing eventually wears out, ya know?

Do you spend $60 on one nice, classic looking shirt or would you rather get 4-5 trendy, Old Navy generic mall shop shirts for that same price?

Cell phones

It is time to buy a new cell phone. I have to get AT&T, and can't afford the monthly fees of the iPhone. What kind of phone do you have? What would you recommend? Have you had a phone/provider you absolutely hated?

I text a lot and being able to check Gmail would be nice. I'm buying a phone from, so I think I can get pretty much any AT&T phone.

Hey guys,

The other day, I signed into MSN Messenger and got a pop-up message asking if I wanted to import and add the email addresses of all my friends on Facebook to my MSN contact list.

I thought this was a great idea, but I didn't want to do it right then, so I closed the window.

I'd like to do it now, but I haven't received the pop-up message again since, and for the life of me I can't find a way to do it within the program. I've consulted Google and MSN Help, but to no avail.

Was the pop-up message legit, or was I getting spammed? Has anyone actually done this in MSN? If so, how did you do it?

Last night while I was driving home, my check engine light came on and my transmission flipped into 3rd gear fail-safe mode. It did this two weeks ago and seemed to resolve after adding some transmission fluid.

My fiance was supposed to be here at 1:30 to look at it, and if necessary, let me take his car so I can get to work. Now it's 10 after 2, I have to leave in a little while, and he's not here. He's not answering his phone, either.

What do I do, TQC? Do I drive my car to work (25 miles on the highway at 65mph)? Do I wait for him? HALP.

So... for the past few weeks I've been on a bit of a studio ghibli kick. Anime isn't really my favorite style, but I'm loving everything from them. So, I'm wondering if there's any other films from them I should watch? So far I've seen: Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Kiki's Delivery Service, and Howl's Moving Castle. The first two were my favorite, but they're all great. Also, I already know about Princess Mononoke but have yet to see that. So... as I said, any others?

Tonight I'll be taking my first swimming class. Yeah, I'm a landlubber who can't swim. I'm a little nervous since the only times I've been immersed up to my neck in water above the age of 10 I was almost drowning in people's pools. What tips can you give me to make this experience easier for me?

this is probably a dumb question but i don't go to the movies often enough to know the answer: if a movie is about two hours long and the show time was at 1pm, when might it be over? i know there are commercials and then the previews, but i have no idea how long they are. if it's at all relevant, the movie in question came out yesterday.

I have some frames from ikea (ram ones) and they have really crappy hangers on them. Would home depot or wal-mart have frame hooks that I could superglue onto theback and then put them on my wall? Is there a better way than nailing a ton of holes into my wall? I have about 20 frames I am hanging up.

What is the last thing you did/ate/experienced that wasn't nearly as bad as you thought it would be?

I went to a movie by myself for the first time ever early this afternoon (the movie started at 11:50). At first I was a little wary because I felt lame being there by myself, but out of the people in the theater, at least 2/3 of them were there alone. :) It was quite nice, actually.

How have you guys reacted/felt when someone you knew a long time ago/haven't spoken to in a long time died?

This kid Garret that I knew back in middle school (I had a ton of classes with him, his locker was next to mine, etc) got into a really bad car wreck last night, is in a coma, and will probably die (he has brain hemorrhaging also). I haven't spoken to him in YEARS, but it still feels weird that I knew him several years ago and interacted with him a lot. He hasn't died yet (I hope he can pull through), but it's such a strange surreal feeling. I've only dealt with one other death in my life (my grandpa, but he had Alzheimer's, so it was a little easier to accept since his mind and personality was totally gone by the time he died), so that may have something to do with how I'm feeling.

In May I got a job working remotely along with a team of designers / programmers for a guy that's starting up a non profit. We've talked on the phone and have been exchanging emails and the sort. Today he sent me an email asking if I wanted to come to New York City and stay at his house. I'm able to invite friends as well, and he won't be there. He offered up his house to another designer on the team (a male) in July so it's not as if he's just asking the girls.

I've always wanted to go to New York City.

I'm curious, is this creepy or an awesome opportunity? Would you go? Why or why not?

Swimfan v. Swimfoe

Fourcorners had his swimming class tonight. What do you think happened?

He really took to it fish to water. The best student the teacher had ever seen
He did pretty good. One of the better swimmers in the class
Strictly average. Somewhere in the middle
Below average. The middle aged lady performed better than he did
Almost drowned once. The teacher had to perform emergency CPR on him
He didn't actually make it to the pool area. He took a left instead of a right and showed up at a biker bar in shorts and flip-flops. He was beaten severely
He chickened out and didn't even attend the class
In a fit of rage, held the teacher's head underwater til he drowned. Currently awaiting his free phone call downtown
He didn't quite make it. One bad breaststroke attempt lead to his death. His spirit is making this poll.
It actually wasn't a swimming class at all. Perusing the fine print again, it just said "show up in your bathing suit".Roofies may have been given. Provocative pictures were taken.

"Payment is deferred 6 months after graduation or enrolled less than half time"

Do you take this as "you have 6 months before you have to pay them back after graduation. You have 6 months before you have to pay them back when you are enrolled less than half time"
"you have 6 months after you graduate. if you are enrolled less than half time, then you must start paying them back immediately"?

Paging Dr. TQC!
Tonight I noticed what appears to be a very red bruise on my leg. It's on the outside, right by my knee. I do not recall hitting it on anything, but I normally have bruises on my legs from bumping into stuff around the house/at work that I don't remember.
I looked on wikipedia and all the bruises that matched the color of mine were from serious stuff like extreme sports accidents.
My question is, is this okay and I should just let it heal like a normal bruise or should I be concerned??
