Do you read mylifeisaverage.com? I've come to realize they are all about getting full credit on tests even though you wrote stupid crap, or something that involved needing to get a story posted.
1. Remember show and tell when you were a kid?
If TQC were to have a show and tell session today, what would you show off?
Why did you pick that object?
2. What's your favorite obscure horror movie?
Would you find it weird not to have a zip or a postal code?
When we speak to Irish customers at work, they don't have any postal codes so the post just goes to the most random address- like you'll send it to North Cottage, Ballymena- and the post just magically seems to get there? IDK...
Looking for a picture of Andy Warhol and Liza Minnelli and a few other famous people from the 70s, I think in Studio 54. Anyone have the picture? High quality would be even better.

Does anyone have a T-Mobile Flexpay account thing?
Is there a cancellation fee?
I can't find much of the fine print online so I'm wondering if there is a cancellation fee or if it's really as good as it seems. I don't want to have to sign up for a two year contract or have to pay 200 bucks to get out of the contract.
Do you pay that 4.99 a month or just have them take the money out of your account?
what music (artists, songs, albums) do you listen to when you feel really depressed? do you tend to go for sad music to help you get through it, or happy music to make you feel better?

So, my wedding ring is made of Tungsten. I am allergic to Nickel. Oops. My finger is already getting a rash after just about 22-23 hours with it on. What can I do so I can still wear my ring but not get a rash from it?
I spend most of my time at my boyfriends place. It's a tiny apartment with one bedroom and a living room/kitchen combined.
His friend was staying tonight and sleeping on the couch. I have to get up at 8 for work. Neither boyf or friend do. I went to bed and slept an hour but woke up with my boyfriends snoring...i might as well have been next to a pneumatic drill. Normally when this happens I go to the couch but tonight I couldn't. Nowhere else I could go.
Couldn't wake my bf up, he was so sound asleep. Only thing I could think of doing was coming back to mine. Which I did. I left a note explaining what had happened for when he wakes up.
What would you have done?
I have a feeling he's going to be kind of pissed at me. Any suggestions for helping with this problem when it comes up again?
One of my coursemates told me that her boyfriend and her combine their allowances together. They are 21, both final year non-working students, don't live together and the money are from their parents. So, If she wants to buy a bag, she needs to ask permission from the boyfriend and vice versa.
Is this normal?
Would you combine your allowance(not income!) with a boyfriend? If yes, what would be the reasons?
I understand if they live together and need to buy household shit but this is just ridiculous. Y/Y?
How far into the relationship before you started talking about finances with your SO?
what kind of jobs do your friends have?
Yesterday I took my boyfriend to Souplantation (soup, salad, bread, & dessert buffet) because he was sick, and he really wanted chicken noodle soup. Well, we get there, and there's a couple sitting in a booth near us-- and let me just say, they were so conspicuous. They were dressed like we were all having 80s flashbacks-- 16 candles anyone? Which you know, whatever who cares right?
Well get this, they had plates all stacked up around them with bread and butter-- like it was a Thanksgiving feast with mostly bread and butter. Can we draw anyone attention to ourselves?! And it gets better! They were chewing the bread and butter, spitting it out into napkins, and "secretively" while using two hands, carrying the huge wad into the trash cans by the soda fountains after they reached basketball sized chewed bread/butter/napkin wads-- they kept doing this over and over 8-9 times during the course of the dinner. I completely lost my appetite at the disgust-- and I wondered when management would finally get on them.
Honestly, I can't fathom why an $11 meal makes someone feel like they have to waste so much food "secretively" in order to get their money's worth-- plus bread isn't worth much anyway! And the guy left with a lunch pail! You'd think they would've been a little more discreet about the whole operation.
Why the fuck were they doing this? Just being cheap and trashy?

Last night, I dreamt I could talk to this one chameleon. He was friendly, sarcastic, and funny as hell. Although, I don't remember anything he said other than he slept during the day rather the night.

Hey TQC--maybe you can help me figure this out!
There are many songs I've heard that, even if I don't particularly like them or relate to them, have a distinctly nostalgic, epic, heart-warming, familiar sound to them. I can think of some recent songs, like MGMT's "Time to Pretend" and "Kids," Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling"...some older ones, like "Angst in My Pants" from the Valley Girl soundtrack.
Do you know what I'm talking about, or does this sound like crazy-talk?

Who would make you the saddest if they died right now?
Say you were in an accident. A drunk driver t-boned you, then sped off into the night, only to crash (for a second time) into a tree. The police arrive and have you sign a paper saying you're okay. Then you go to the hospital to get checked out. Later on, you get a bill for $12,000 for the drunk driver's car. The reason for this is that the accident report is all screwed up and the cop checked the box that said you were at fault instead of the other guy. When you call the police to try and get this mistake cleared up, they just tell you to pay up. You think of getting an attorney but they all want you to lie and say you had a loss of income, which you didn't.
So what would you do?

Is there a community like tqc that is strictly health related? I looked but couldn't find one so I'm coming here with my question.
Starting sometime in the summer, I started getting light-headed and dizzy, usually when I stood up. A few times I've had a weird black spot in my vision. I'm exhausted all the time, and multiple times a week I can tell my heart rate is getting really fast, it's really freaky. I get headaches every now and then, feel like my legs are going to go out, and the other day I felt like I was making myself breathe. I just know these symptoms are related. My mom says its my sinuses, but I don't think so. What in the world could it be?

I think in most relationships, one person is more invested than the other.
For how many of your relationships has this been the case? Which one have you been, the more or less invested one?
In situations where you were the more invested one, did you feel at the beginning that your partner was "out of your league" or that you'd lucked out?
In situations where you were the less invested one, did you go into it thinking it was just going to be short-term, or did you just figure you'd see where it went?
If you've been in a relationship where the two of you were equally invested, are you still in it? If it ended, why did it end?
If you have a story to tell that is along these themes but doesn't exactly answer one of these questions, I'd still love to hear it.
Do you believe in the concept of a miracle? If you do, how would you define it? Has anything happened recently in your life that you would consider a miracle?

The act of yawning is baffling to experts for two reasons. One, it doesn't actually seem to serve any purpose. Seriously, when you feel a yawn coming on, suppress it. What happens? Do you go into convulsions? Is your face racked by pain? Does blood shoot from your nose? No. Not a damned thing happens.
Equally baffling, though, is the contagious nature of it. Yawn, and whoever sees you will yawn. When a chimpanzee yawns, the other chimps yawn. If you yawn, you can make a dog yawn. Seriously, try it.
Odds are you've yawned once just because you read the word "yawn" several times above. Did you?

Have you found the shampoo/conditioner for your hair?
I bought some Tresemme (the anti-breakage kind) and so far, it has been amazing. My hair is very, very thin with no volume and I usually can't run even a comb through it while it's wet--but after using this shampoo/conditioner, I can. It's awesome and I thought I should share the excitement.
What's your #1 hair product?
Have you ever played a prank/practical joke on somebody? How did it go?
I like freaking out my friends and casual acquaintances with this site: peteranswers.com, because I have no creativity when it comes to pranks.
So how do I go about taking better pictures of the things I've painted? The ones I have are awful. Should I wait for the natural light or should I set up a white sheet and light it artificially? Flash or no flash? I think the flash definitely washes out the detail.
It doesn't help that most of my paintings are on are freakin green background.
What's the last thing that actually made you LOL?
I was looking at some old photos when I found one of me in a bikini. I showed it to my BF and he made some comments about how great I looked. He studied it for a bit, I said ''hell, it's been about 15 years since that was taken'
His reply? 'fuck no!!! urgh urgh! I thought you were about 16 or 17!' Then he launched the photograph as far as it would go! His reaction was priceless!'
eta - Yep I am hopeless! I was 12.
I might have a car here tomorrow which means I'd be buy food from outside my house, finally! I'm sick of cooking.

Coworker situation. Boss is married with a child, the other coworker is divorced but living with her boyfriend of four years.
You start to notice funny things happening with them. There was always the normal joking/bugging/flirting interaction that happens with almost everyone at this workplace, however, there has been a change. You notice the boss calling the coworker at work, daily for non-work related conversations. They chat for 10-15 minutes everyday, sometimes twice, just joking and having fun.
Then you notice they have started going for coffee together. The boss gets off work and leaves for coffee place, and the other coworker conveniently chooses this time to go for coffee. She comes back and you ask "Did you go for coffee with so-and-so?" reply "Yes, haha." It happened once awhile ago and you notice that it's now happening several times a week, in addition to the phone calls.
Due to the fact that you've become aware of these two things, you begin to notice how often they sneak to the back to talk, very frequently all shift. As soon as someone approaches they scatter and go back to work.
NOW, would it be wrong to assume that it looks like it could be developing into an affair? If it hasn't already? Not that I would go do anything about it, I'm just curious of I'm seeing something that isn't there. I want to know I'm not insane for thinking it haha.
It doesn't help that they are both very vocal about their relationship issues, in fact I know how long it's been since the woman last had sex with her man, SINCE SHE ANNOUNCES IT WEEKLY. Not something I ever wanted to know...
Maybe I'm a weird girl, but I would not be comfortable with my boyfriend/husband calling a woman everyday and going for coffees several times a week.
Girls, say that you and your boyfriend are long distance. You ask him how his day goes, and he says that he ran into a friend who graduated from his school last semester but was back on campus just for the day. He constantly refers to this friend as 'friend' and 'they' and never introduces a pronoun revealing the sex of this friend. Ex: "I ran into a friend and they suggested we get lunch," "I just had coffee while they had their lunch."
Would you interpret this friend as female, and he didn't want to just say "she" because he feared that you would get jealous or something??

How was your day today?
Did you have a good day today or a bad day today?
Well, what kind of day was it?
To say that I'm not a morning person would be polite. I usually set 10 alarms in hopes of even just waking up. I used to rely on computer alarms and without fail, they would wake me up. For some reason, since switching from desktop to laptop -- I can't seem to get any alarm to go off on my computer. I've tried them while awake with the same problem. I've even tried setting my display to never turn off, with only a screen saver on, to no avail.
So, TQC, what the hell is going on?
If you have one, which alarm program do you use?
