Someone buys $10 "100% silicone lubricant" on the internet. They inject it into their lips and cheek. The day after they realize it's infected but they won't go to the ER because they are afraid of being lectured by the doctors. This person works in the medical field.

Would you have any sympathy for this person?

Edit: It really happened! I'm watching Tyra right now and it's about women injecting shit into their faces.

I have had mousy boring blah colored hair for years. I kind of want to go with something more vibrant (thinking blonde highlights). I can't really afford salon dying, though, especially if I'm going to keep up with it. Is there a way to do it cheaper with good effects? I've also considered henna to make my hair a richer/redder brown but idk.

What should I do 'bout my hair tqc?

I drank 4 glasses of wine earlier, and came home and opened up a bottle of wine. I'm a quarter in and I know it's beyond me. I can't put it away because it's too sweet and I'm now more than a little tipsy. However, the cork was assassinated while opening the bottle so I can't recork it with the same wood. What should I do?

I just found out about a lot of things I really didn't want to know. Some really shitty things about my mom. I already dislike her greatly and now I have lost all respect for her. All of it.

What can I do to make myself feel better, even if its just for the night? I'm a wreck.

Outlook Express deformatting?

I have an employee issued version of Outlook Express, so I don't know how much you can help me, but I'd like to know how people go about this when the program is normal.
Every time I copy the text of a hyperlink into my clipboard and paste it on an Outlook message, it creates a hyperlinked text there. I don't want that. I don't need the text to be blue with a little arrow next to it. I just want the text. Hyperlinks may cause my team lead to ignore the message about the account, or may cause the message to be unreadable or force them to type my password or something. Right now I just paste it in a txt file and copy-paste it into Outlook.
Is there any way I can go into settings and take out the hyperlink option? I never want to use hyperlinks in my e-mails at work...ever.

I'm ready for a change, so I'm starting with my hair. I am terrible at figuring out what would look good so I was hoping to get some opinions. I have really thick, long dark brown hair. It's all one length. So TQC, what do you think would look good? I'm also planning on dying it red, unless you can think of a color that would look better on me. My hair is a bit longer now and all one color.

Hi, new here

This just makes me so sad, because it used to be my favorite show ever when it first came out, and I love, love, loved the first couple of seasons, but lately, Grey's Anatomy just bums me the hell out. Especially that two-hour premire that I seriously could've just watched the beginning 15 minutes to get the gist of the whole episode.

Does anyone like Grey's Anatomy anymore?

edit: Do you have a favorite show that let you down?

I can write down my hours for work. There's no time clock. My shift is supposed to start at 8. I get there 5 to 8 but the woman with the key doesn't arrive until sometimes as late as 8:20.

Guys, I seriously need help with my hair. It is too wavy to be straight but not wavy enough to be curly - it's some weird neither here nor there in between deal. It is seriously a pain. I don't want to have to always blow it out/straight iron it. Mostly I blow it out on low to try and avoid heat damage as much as possible, but it is still a bitch. When I let it air dry, it looks horrible to me. I'm sick of feeling like my hair has to be up to be in any way satisfying to look at.

I never know what to say to my stylist(s) to get something that works with both. I've asked and gone to way more than one to try and find a professional who can actually help me. What I get now is long layers with some face framing ones as well, and that's okay enough when it's straight but even then I'm not 100% happy with it down. What do I need to do? I can't take pictures since I'm asking for a hair cut that works more than one way and in pics you never know if a model's hair has been altered or if it's naturally the way you see.

HALP. :(

PS - No pics bc I'm at my work computer.

Has anything locally (news-wise or anything else) happened lately in your area that just made you facepalm out of embarassment for your town?

All of the radio stations keep going on and on and won't shut up about Jude Law's new baby mama being from our town. Seriously? That's your "big news story"? You get this worked up and excited over it? You all suck.

Quick, TQC, I need excuses/reasons!

Right now we have 21 Asus netbooks in our workroom. My boss bought them in March/April.

My coworker and I are trying to come up with reasons why our boss should uh...get rid of them/give them away.

Right now all we have are: the warranties are almost up and they sat in our extremely hot workroom all summer (we had no air and it actually did fuck up our copy machine).

What are some other excuses we could use?

There is no pain where stength lies

Just watching Star Wars IV: A New Hope, technically the first film, and it's the scene where Darth Vader is telling Grand Mof Tarkin that Obi·Wan is on the Death Star. Tarkin ends that with "The Jedi are extinct, their fire went out of the universe years ago. You my friend are all that is left of their religion..."

Tarkin referred to Vader as being a Jedi. Not sure why I didn't notice that before. I'd have to check out Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi again but in my mind's eye I don't recall hearing about 'them' until The Phantom Menace.

When did the word 'Sith' first appear in the movies?

Insurance form question

I live with my parents currently, but if I want to apply for food stamps or unemployment cash assistance, do I list household members as "1" (I'm only applying for myself), or do I have to list 3 to include my parents and their incomes? The "household" part always confuses me.

you know how sometimes, having watched a film, you stand up to continue with some regular things: to smoke, make a cup of tea, clean the house, do your homework, walk your dog, whatever - and it feels different. you don't feel like you're yourself anymore, and it's as if you were smoking for the first time, drinking tea for the first time, it all feels odd and unusual.

My husband has tickets to a concert tonight. He was given them as a gift for his birthday, he's had the tickets for a while. His birthday was back in July, when the tickets went on sale. Today is not his birthday.

His brother was supposed to go with him, and backed out last week. My husband has been trying all week to find someone to go with him, with no luck. I really have no interest at all in going.

At first he said that he'd be ok going alone, but now he's saying he's going to stay home if he can't find anyone.

I do already have my own plans for tonight.

Am I a crappy wife for not canceling my plans and going with him?

Edit: He's going to see Mike Gordon from Phish, and I'm going out to a party at one of my favorite knitting stores.

Difference in Chinese Dishes

So, my guy are going to order dinner from a local Chinese joint. Of course, it's not at all an authentic Chinese restaurant - just has the standard Americanized versions of Chinese dishes.

My question is, what is the difference between Hunan, Szechuan, Kung Pao and General Tso's chicken? I want a spicy chicken dish but I haven't tried some of those.

ETA Is the chicken steamed, fried in oil or battered in these?

I'm getting married in Jan. and had always anticipated on taking my husband-to-be's name, even before I met my fiance. However, I was listening to a podcast on maiden names today, and I realized there are so many options! Allow me to list:
She takes his name
She keeps her name
She adds his name to hers, dropping her middle name
She hyphenates her last name
He takes her name
They make a new name together

What do you want to do? Apparently it's much more difficult for a man to change his name than it is for a woman. And if you're in a same-sex relationship whose name would you take? Or would you keep your own? If you had kids, whose last name would they have?

Gift Cards

Lets say you entered a contest or tournament in which first place was a gift card.

If you had the following 2 choices, which would you prefer?

1) a gift card for a specified store, or group of stores (ie: 5 restaurants owned by the same parent company, card is redeemable at any of the 5 specified restaurants)

2) a jump card (a jump card is a gift card to an online gift card store basically. you go on their website and redeem the card you won for whatever store's giftcard you prefer, with a choice of something like 200 different stores and restaurants)

I'm exhausted from today, well this week, so I can't really think of anything that would be suitable.
What are some recipes (that are vegetarian friendly, or at least use ground beef that I could substitute in some soy stuff) that heavily involve carrots, and/or onions (of all kinds, red, white, spanish) and/or tomatoes (cherry and/or the normal kind)?
I have SO MANY from my garden.

Also, using copious amounts of chives, oregano and mint (though in a main dish?, ew) would be a bonus.

Thank you for giving me recipes so I can feed myself.

how easy is it to over-exercise a dog? in this case it is a small terrier so he is supposed to have lots of energy but he is fat so he doesn't.

i have been trying to run every day and my dog is fat so i've been taking him with me (and yelling at my family to stop feeding him table food), but after like 5 minutes he has trouble keeping up and i'm kind of dragging him behind me. we only run for like 30 minutes and i run pretty slow. should i keep bringing him along?

Hi Doctor TQC!

1) My knee has been hurting mildly at 4 different spots for 4 weeks already. I dont remember doing anything to cause it. After a week of it starting my other knee started to hurt as well in 2 of the spots my other knee hurts too. I have an appointment with my doctor but I still have to wait a while until it happens. The pain feels very internal and in one of the spots it seems to be related to a muscle. Any ideas about what I could have?

I'd be thankful for serious answers, since I am a bit worried, but non serious are welcomed too.

2) Have you ever used those backpacks that have something like a belt for your waist or hip to help distribute the weight better? Does this really help your back/shoulders not be as tired?

And after watching Flashforward last night and Joseph Fiennes' lousy American accent, I have to ask, what non-American does the worst American accent?

Personally, I wish many of these shows would allow these actors to use their normal accents. They don't need to be American to be accepted by American audiences.
