TQC, how ugly of a car would you be willing to buy for the right price/quality/features?

The PT Cruiser is the most affordable car in terms of what I'm looking at and would suit my needs really well, but I don't know if I can go there. It's like the dumbest car. Should I go there?

Today I found out that a friend from when I was younger has a 12 year old stepson. She is 23.

This is weird, right? Basically, she was younger than her stepson when he was born. She was in fifth grade.

Am I an uptight loser for thinking this is kind of crazy? I just can't imagine having a child (step or otherwise) that close to me in age - I have a cousin that is not even two.

But the question club, I ask you.
What is the fine line between art and pornography?
Do you ever feel as if nudity ruins a movie? or does it ever make a movie that much better?
Should nudity be allowed in movies?
Would you let your kids watch movies with nudity if there was some artistic value? if there isn't any artistic value?

Room mate A is sitting in a common area, watching a movie on the computer when Room mate B walks in at 12:45am from hanging out with her friends all day. Room mate B is tired and wants to sit in the common area and watch a few on demand shows. Room mate A is more than halfway done with the movie, but cannot hear anything from the computer between Room mate B's TV noise and conversation. Room mate A could just unplug their laptop and go to their room, but not having a battery (using an AC adapter), would have to power off the re-load the movie. Room mate B has a TV in her room, but not on demand.

Which room mate should go to their room?

this is my last semester of college. i have fridays and saturdays free; otherwise i'm working and/or in class all day. should i:
(a) find an internship that will hopefully lead to employment afterwards or
(b) enjoy life now and potentially fuck up my chances of finding a job later?
(my job now is a work-study job so once the summer's over, it's gone.)

I haven't eaten all day (or yesterday, really) so I'm starving. I just went to throw a tv dinner in the microwave, and came back to my room. My boyfriend had JUST sent me a text asking if I wanted Whataburger. And of course Whataburger >>>> tv dinner.

But the dinner is already halfway done in the microwave. What can I do with it, if anything? I figure I can't refreeze it. Actually there's probably nothing I can do, right? Should I just throw it outside to the outdoor cats? lol

Alternatively, do you still get nightmares? Apparently it's common to get them approximately two hours after you fall asleep (because of the stage you're at in your REM cycle), have you ever noticed/experienced this?

What are your thought on this? This girl claims that Brazilian waxes are female genital torture simply for the benefit of men.

If you have ever recieved a wax, do you only do it to please your men?

TQC, I've put all my coffee table books on my now-bare dresser. Should I arrange them so they're uniform against the back of the dresser, making them uneven on the bindings, or should I make them even along their bindings, and uneven alongside the back of the dresser?

Attention snow drivers.

I'm moving to the midwest for 6 months, and I'll be there for just the end of winter. How important is it to have a good car for driving in the snow? I am buying a new car right now anyway, so I'm looking at a lot of AWD vehicles, but I don't know if it's really, especially since I'll only be there for one season. If you don't have a good snow vehicle, how do you winterize your car? Are good all-season tires enough?

I've never driven in the snow before. I'm from Oregon. FYI, nobody west of the Cascades in Oregon can drive in snow. It's always like massive pileups and 5 hour commutes when it snows :(

I live in Texas

Ok, I'm a native of the northern US but for the last few years, I've lived in Texas and had no need to spend money on good winter gear.

I'm going on a skiing trip in February and have NO winter coat to wear.  I won't EVER wear it except when I'm visiting family in the winter and/or on a trip such as this one so I don't want to spend a lot of money.

Can you recommend some good brands that aren't too expensive? 

I'm seeing all sorts of skiing/snowmoarding jackets for hundreds of dollars, but I would ideally spend less than $100 and I'd probably spend up to $150 if there really was no decent alternative.

Simpsons

So there is an early episode of the Simpsons where Lisa is  sitting in her room playing her saxophone and she plays this one jazz song, I can't remember what the songs is, I can remember being a little kid and being like "Whoa."

It might have been an episode with Bleeding Gums Murphy.

I am trying to remember the episode but am failing.

She plays the entire song. I am pretty sure she is in her room sitting on her bed and just jamming.

I wish I could be more specific but anyone?

Do you know what song I am talking about?


EDIT: IT IS NOT JAZZMAN AND IT IS NOT FROM THE EPISODE 'ROUND SPRINGFIELD

EDIT EDIT: it was Baker Street, The episode was Lisa's sax where Homer runs over her sax and they tell the story of how she got her sax.

I caved. My contract with Verizon is up and I'm bailing; I'm getting the iPhone. Trouble is I don't know how to carry it. Hip holsters stopped being cool after the Gold Rush. Plus I'm a lady so the pockets of my jeans can apparently only fit a business card or a napkin or something else a tall dark and handsome might jot his number down on.

So ladies! How do you carry this ridiculously expensive thing around without breaking it or looking like a cowboy?

ETA: Durr! Sorry, it should be mentioned that I am more of a jeans/tshirt/sneakers minimalist and don't own a purse because I would probably set it down and leave it somewhere accidentally. On this note maybe I should just tape the phone to my arm. That seems like a safe bet.

I just read a post on tipping, and remembered a question I always mean to post.

So I order take out sushi quite often & I pick it up at the restaurant. It always asks for a tip on the debit machine and I never quite know what to do.

Do I tip even though I've had zero service & have picked it up myself? Sometimes I leave something, sometimes I throw some change in the tip jar, other times I don't leave anything but I feel rude doing that haha. So TQC, Do I tip the sushi place?
if it matters my bill is usually about $10.

Nail Designs

I'm learning how to do my own nails in both gel and acrylic, and though I have tons of design sites and pictures for inspiration, I'm just not feeling any of them.  I'd like to redo my nails tonight - what design/color/character/bling should I do?  As soon as it gets closer to Valentines Day, I'll do a red heart design, and normally, I'll do a white french tip or colored french tip.  I love glitter and more abstract designs, mainly because my skills aren't good enough for more intricate or precise designs yet.

This is what they look like now, except I added a pink rhinestone to the center of each burst:



I know, I'm a tacky bitch, but I love my long nails.

let me preface this by saying i am really stupid when it comes to any issue dealing with money.

i bank with chase. i deposited a check for $5000 about a week ago. it took a couple days and then the check cleared. now i check my account online today and it says my present balance is $5202 but my available balance is $44.65. what's the deal? why is the full balance not available?

eta: they did accidentally deposit it twice and then reversed one of the deposits, idk if that would have anything to do with it.

Internet Advice

What's the worst advice you have seen someone give on the internet? The kind of bad advice that is so awful it's funny.

My answer:
I was googling trying to find out what kind of wasps we have around my house and found a forum where someone posted a picture of a hornet hive in their backyard, tried to describe the hornets and asked what they were and such. Someone replies that the description sounded like Cicada Killers which aren't dangerous/don't sting often. But of course in reality they are hornets and very dangerous if you mess with their giant nest.

A half-internet half-real life second best I have seen is people who actually think, and pass the advice on to others, that police are not allowed to lie to you. (Mainly in that if you ask an undercover cop is they are a cop, they have to say yes.)

I want to sell my artwork. I haven't decided if I want to sell originals (etsy or similar) or prints/various things with my drawings printed on them (cafepress or similar), but I have no idea what I'm doing either way. Most of my stuff is just black ink drawings on paper but I also do some painting and textile work.

Lately a lot of people have been telling me they'd buy my shit so I'm curious to see if they're
lying or not. I'm studying/unemployed/live at home so it would just be for a bit of extra spending money and some ego stroking.

I'd prefer somewhere that lets you sell things for free/takes a commission when you sell an item rather than charging a listing fee, but that's not super important.

Have you ever sold your arty things on the internet? How? I have been googling for a while but I really don't know what kind of setup would be best. Any site recommendations aside from etsy?

Also, how do you go about promoting your wares? Do you just tell friends and family and encourage them to tell other people, or do you post stuff in a blog/on a personal site/etc?

2. If a clean-shaved cute-ish guy you knew suddenly grew a goatee, would it improve or decrease his overall attractiveness?
3. Which is cuter on a guy? Stubble or a goatee or a smooth hair-free jaw?

I got into a discussion today about dog breeds and what dog is the worst breed to own. This person brought up that they thought Pitt Bulls were the WORST by far to own. She was unaware that I am a very proud owner of a Pitt. (see icon) We have had Zoey since she was 10 weeks old and she will be 6 this summer. Not once have we ever had any worries/concerns. There was a law passed 2 years ago that pitt bulls were now banned in our town. We built a privacy fence so nobody can see into our back yard to notice here. I don't want to get rid of her.

What are you thoughts on Pitt Bulls? Do you think they are a bad breed or that they have been given a bad rep?

If you were me, would you have gotten rid of your dog or do what I did?

I think its all in how you raise you dog, no matter what kind of dog.



ETA: I should have mentioned that I own my house, only bought it 3 years ago and I like my town besides the ban. Moving was NOT an option.

Mechanics of TQC

My boyfriend's car got a dent to where you can only open the passenger door halfway. We tried popping it out with a plunger, using the back end of a hammer, and going in through the hood to see if we can pop it out. The only other option (I think) is to take off the wheel, take off the plastic guard so he can reach under and pop it out that way, but that's a LOT of work. TQC, how do you think we could fix this ASAP? Going to a body shop is the last resort.

 Alrighty, this summer I'm taking a road trip to New York City and coming back down the east coast. I know for sure we're stopping in Boston and probably D.C., but what are some other awesometastic cities we can stop in? Also, what are some things to do in said cities? We're going all the way down to Florida if that counts for anything.

Okay....

My mom is a big Star Trek fan. My Husband and i have a copy of the movie on our computer. For a nice surprise I decided to burn a copy of the movie onto a DVD-RW.

According to the packaging, the DVD-RW i have should be able to 120 minutes or 4.7 GB. The file size of the move is 492 MB (516,797,040 bytes). The movie 1:58 and 52 seconds in length, after my husband cut out the end credits.

Every time my poor, sweet, dear Husband tries to copy it onto the DVD-RW through Windows Media Player, it says Status; Will Not Fit.

In short TQC, what the heck do i do to fix this? Anyone know what i am doing wrong? Any advice?

Thanks :)

Something I always wonder about.

What do you think happens to survivors of horror movies? How do they explain to the cops that a group of inbred rednecks murdered their entire family/friends/hiking group & be taken seriously?

Do you think that the survivors would get arrested? Because honestly, what cop is going to believe mutant cave people killed & ate your family?

 I just realized my old school brick style gameboy still works.   I thought it was screwed up but actually the contrast was fucked up and after some adjustment it works fine.  I now feel ecstatic and  also dumb.  When was the last time you found something that made you feel dumb and happy at the same time? 
coffee

Buttons!

So I have basically ruined all my work khakis.
I just realized the pair I was planning on wearing tomorrow is missing its button. I have no needle or thread and I can't go buy some at this time.
I have work super early tomorrow.

How can I somehow make something to use in lieu of a button? Basically, how can I make my pants stay up for work tomorrow?

Aside from a drunken one night vegas marriage. What is the fastest you have ever seen someone engaged? A month? A few months? Less?
- How long did it take for them (or you) to get married?


Do you think it's better to be an honest friend or is it better to simply lie to your friends to coddle their feelings?

- The reason I bring this up is because my friend of 15 years just announced she is engaged to get married after dating a man 20 years her elder. The problem is, she just recently was broken up with by her boyfriend of a year. She starts dating this other guy for a month and all of a sudden they are engaged. She expects me to be happy for her but not one single part of me can do it.

So should I simply lie to her and tell her she is making a good choice like everyone else? or should I stick to being honest?

If you've made a couple off-hand comments to a good friend (apologized immediately afterward), and they called you on it a few days later, and you talked it out and everything was good...what do you do when you still feel really bad about it?

What kind of food do you typically bring to work and/or school?

I have no breaks between classes, so I need something that doesn't need to be cooked, and I'm so tired of sandwiches (though I may just resort to them anyway).

Every so often, like right now, something just outside my window will tap against it, kind of like someone tapping to get my attention (I'm on the second story). It freaks me the hell out sometimes, especially when I'm home alone.

What's something that freaks you out in the place you live?

You are trapped in your personal hell. One movie is on repeat, and you cannot turn it off even though you utterly despise it. What is this movie, and why do you hate it so much?
