WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CONCEPTUAL ART?
On that note, if you've said something (somewhat intentionally) in reference to a group of people and a few members get offended and flip at you, how do you damage control? Do you bother? Do you just say, 'suck it, you bitches.'?

It's one of those times when your shitty car has broken down, and you take it to your regular mechanic at Dealership H. He quotes you $3,200.00 for everything. You think this sounds a little high, so you consult another mechanic at Dealership G. Dealership G can do everything H can do for $1750, including labor. You call those bastards as Dealership H back and tell them that, and they say they can match down to that price.
Teal Deer: your regular mechanic (Dealership H) quotes you $3,200 for repairs. An alternate mechanic (Dealership G) quotes you $1,750. Your regular mechanic can suddenly match that price.

When I was 20....my dad grounded me for two weeks, one summer when I was home, for staying out all night, and not bothering to check in. His reasoning was he paid for my school (no loans), he paid for my rent, food, car, fun, etc....therefore, he was still allowed to ground me. And I totally agreed. Still do.
i was a good kid. the only time i got in trouble is when i just got my license and my mom saw me driving my friend home. i was still in the 6 months or whatever it is that only adults and family members are allowed in the car after getting your license. at first i was "grounded for a month" because "THAT WAS AGAINST THE LAW" but then she decided i just couldn't drive for 2 weeks after talking to her friend at work. then she realized i had a job that she didn't want to drive me to so i just couldn't drive to friends' houses.
What's that thing called? Is there a more specific term than "speaker"?

After I got home from the first day of my Intro to Theatre class, I Googled my professor because he was young and cute. I found his Facebook, and when I looked on his page discovered that he's engaged to one of my best friends from years ago who I'd mostly fallen out of touch with.

They're cute, but dammit, so gross.
We've already caught at least nine, but there are plenty more.
Anyway. The only food source they had was dog food. Our one dog eats half of his food, then munches on it later on. Our other dog inhales hers in ten seconds. So we've started putting his uneaten food on the rolling dishwasher, where the mice can't reach it.
Nothing in our cupboard has been chewed by mice, and there's no evidence of them in the bread box, either.
So what are these mice eating?
Can mice live (and breed) on non-food items?
Are they eating drywall or something?
Is my house going to collapse from mousy-chewed walls and beams?
What do you do for a living?
1. One roll where the top four rolls win a coin. Winning one disqualifies you from winning another.
2. Four rolls where top roll wins each time, and if you win you don't get to roll again.
Either way, 12 players, 4 coins, 4 winners.
Some people insist that four rolls gives you better odds of winning. My friend keeps insisting that the odds are better with separate rolls. Common sense tells me that you have a 1/3 chance of winning either way, and that odds can't improve for EVERYONE in the group with the same number of coins and the same number of players.
He asked his calc teacher. At first the teacher agreed with me but then he kept badgering him and got him to agree that since the odds are 1/12, 1/11, 1/10, 1/9 for four separate rolls, it's better odds of winning. The exact thing happens when you do one roll with 4 chances to win of course but whatever.
Please give me ways to get it through his thick skull and make him stop talking about it because it is hurting my head. Common sense isn't enough evidence of course so be as mathy as desired.
For those who may actually be able to answer, how do I explain it to him in a way that will make him shut up?

Obviously there's "shared fun" spending which isn't an issue (seeing movies together, going out to dinner, etc), but how do they handle "individual fun" spending, like the guy wants to buy a new gaming computer or the girl wants weekly manicures (for example)?
How do you and your SO handle fun spending?

The problem right now is her parents. She had told them last week that she is considering, and is more than likely to withdraw from school. They didn't take her seriously at all. They gave me the feeling that they didn't believe my friend had the guts to quit. But I know that the degree is downright torturing her.
How can she break out this news to her conservative asian parents and have them take her seriously?
ETA: My friend is going to find a job and work. After she earns enough money she'd want to pursue a career in props design, which was something she's been wanting to do since high school, but her parents didn't allow.

I am buying a ticket to go visit my BFF in Hawaii in May. She strongly suggests I bring "comfortable walking shoes, but not Converse" which, unfortunately, are the only comfortable walking shoes I currently own. I have running shoes, but they look pretty stupid with regular clothes. I'm considering buying hiking boots, but I'm afraid that might be a little overkill.
If it changes anything, she lives in Hilo, but we'll be spending half my time there in Kona.
Will you tell me about a very comfortable pair of walking shoes? Pictures are encouraged.
dk/dc/don't wear comfortable shoes: Will you show me your favorite userpic? Why is it your favorite?
She has been dating her bf for 4 years and a few years back he cheated on her with an online friend of his. The guy confessed his mistake to her and generally seemed apologetic even cutting contact with his online friend to salvage his real life relationship. Now I guess, she found out that he hasn't cut contact with this online girl and has continued to lie about talking to her. As far as the girl knows, her bf and his online buddy have not met, however they do live relatively close so it is always a possibility the guy lied about that as well. I personally think it's time to dump him but our other friend contends an online relationship isn't really cheating and she should give him another chance. What do you think TQC?

Last night I was in on my laptop in bed and a spider came down from the ceiling. I almost froze but miraculously trapped it in a tissue. I was so shaken up about it I had to wake up my dad and he just held me for awhile. He is the best.
Which I guess gives me another question, who loves you the most in this world? What have they done to show you this?
Will he ever just shut the fuck up?
my SO's little brother's wall posts keep coming up on my mini feed and he always signs out saying "have a good one" - and it doesn't make sense! his wall posts are like "hey i haven't seen you for so long!! cheers, have a good one." what is he even referring to?! he's not talking about any ~special events~ or ~holidays~ or anything. >:(
Example: $5 a day. $25 a week.
Charging by the day = They come to school 4/5 days a week and pay $20 at the end of the week
Charging by the week = They come to school 4/5 days a week but still have to pay the full week
I'm asking this because I'm struggling with the decision. At first everyone agreed to charging by the week seeing as I go to school an hour early every day (different degree programs) and stay longer than I have to if I get out early. I was even sick one day and drove them over anyway and went back to get them when they were done. I also figure I've been so accommodating that it shouldn't be much to ask the payment be on time (a month late sometimes). We all get paid the same day and I find myself waiting for certain peoples money longer than others. This is frustrating to no end because I feel like I'm being used.
It is now Wednesday and there is no sign of my roommate, who, for all intents and purposes, was coming back this semester. [She took everything with her, apparently, including her fridge which we're supposed to leave in the dorm.]
My fellow TQCers, I can start moving my stuff into the [larger] closet she had now, yes?
ETA: I have asked an RA about this. And her response was to just assume that she's not coming back.

I love my SO very much and find him incredibly attractive. I thought it might have been my birth control but I've been off for a month now to see if that's it, but it's only helped a little. I stopped smoking weed (that's a long story) and I acquired this problem sometime around then, although I'm not sure if that's legit. My SO and I are around each other constantly, so could it be that there's no real time for me to feel like I'm being deprived? I've had a lot of stress lately trying to figure out where I'm going in life, maybe that's a distraction?
Is it a combination of these things? Am I really all out of libido at 18? Do I just suck?
I used to be horny all the time. Now he feels that my inability to get in the mood nearly as often means that I don't find him attractive anymore. That's definitely not the case and I don't want him thinking that way.

 Will you tell me your favorite myths?
So I have this slight dilemma, and since you know all, I figured I would ask here.
Basically my school schedule requires me to be at school from 10-7 a few days a week. I wake up early & eat my breakfast, then I usually eat a few apples or bananas around 1, but by 5ish I'm STARVING & want real food... & I don't want to eat a lot when I get home because then I feel sick all night.
My school has a precent decent cafe, so I can grab food from there, but it's expensive.
I don't have access to a fridge but I can use a microwave.
SO, TQC, What are some decent snack/dinner things I can buy/make and bring with me to school so I don't disturb the class with my growling tummy?
what are you dreading?
what baked good do you love the most?
Spring is coming up soon, and every year, without fail, the cedar pollen destroys me. No matter what shots or pills I get, I am literally laid out for a week, needing someone to come make me soup and make sure I dont fall over while walking to the bathroom.
It really hurt my grades last year, and I kinda want to notify the profs, but am kinda hesitant to do so, only because Im scared it might sound weird, going 'hey Im gonna be sick for a week sometime in April'. Im scared it would sound like Im planning a vacation and skipping, but I may just be paranoid. I could, of course, provide a doctor's note.
Im not sure why Im so worried about this, just wanted to know how others would handle it.
she didn't text me, call me or send me a message on facebook. i also ran into her coming home as she and her boyfriend were going out.
she intentionally didn't invite me, didn't she?
GUYS, IT'S COOL. i can handle it. i don't think she has a legit reason(pretty sure it's because our cats got into a fight and mine dropped her's like a bag of dirt) but i hardly see her so i really don't care that much.
If so, what were your symptoms at the very beginning of the pregnancy?
If not, Are you a hugger? Recently, I've found people who hate them! wtf?
Also I want to take her to the town next to ours for dinner and shopping on her birthday but we have to do it on my day off. Should I tell her now to get a day off or should I what? IDK

Most people seem completely not bothered by almost everything that doesn't directly affect them personally. This concept has always seemed both unfathomable to me and even somewhat unethical. As long as I can remember my feeling has been "if I know it exists, it affects me". Say something to convince me otherwise.
I love g&ts (4oz Canada Dry tonic water, 3oz Bombay Sapphire gin, wedge of lime). Tonight though I'm drinking a Chinese cocktail, which Mr. Boston describes thus:
1 tbsp. Grenadine

1 dash Bitters
1 tsp. Maraschino Liqueur
1 tsp. Triple Sec
Shake in ice & strain into cocktail glass
It is very sweet and delicious. And it is very red.

"If Nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full, and you can give things out of that--warm things, kind things, sweet things--help and comfort and laughter--and sometimes gay, kind laughter is the best help of all."
Did your mind get blown?
Well, a friend of mine told me this earlier and here's what he said basically:
Bush admin = greedy humans who attack Na'vi for their riches.
Human with a disability = Obama being part black/part white, was seen as a con from people of both races.
Jake using Avatar body = Obama being accepted as "1 of us", either from the white population because he light skinned and doesn't talk black (just about any bs stereotypes you heard that makes him "acceptable")
Jake marrying the future queen = Obama marrying Michele. Makes his black side stand out. Him marrying a black woman of dark skintone is kind of a big deal.
