I know that .gif files can be made so that they move, but how is it that some files that have moving frames that I save are .jpgs?
Best/easiest/fastest (free) way to make a song your ringtone on an iPhone?

What song should i make as my ringtone?
What is your current ringtone?
Do you own more brown shoes or black shoes?
I have ONLY black shoes (besides a few different colored converse and a pair of red pumps) and I'm looking to branch out into browns...but most of my clothes are black! How can I make this work? D: If I get a brown belt too, would that look ok (as long as they are the same brown)?

So, I'm sending in an online application for a summer program. The only way to apply is online. Their application form is a .pdf file-- however, the file is non-writable.
I cannot save any of my information! Even if I "save as" something else, when I open the document, its blank again.
The application is pretty short and only contains my basic contact information. The important stuff can all be attached to the application email as word documents. But what should I do about this form?
I almost want to send it in blank, with my contact information again in the email.
How do you eat your cream cheese?
TQC, Verizon was supposed to give me a 20% discount on my BB service. They didn't. I called and complained and the woman said that I didn't qualify, only one line does and it ain't mine. She was supposed to call back this morning to troubleshoot my old phone, which I will switch back to if it's such a problem. She didn't.
Should I just wait until monday and check with the rep at the office, who told us about the 20%? Should I go back to the store where I was told I'd get my 20% and bitch? Should I try to make them replace my EnV2 for the third time (instead of me paying them $50 for another shitty refurb)? What would you do, TQC?
DK/DC: Do you prefer quality or quantity, in general?

If you have an Xbox what games are you currently into?

I can't open my Word Press blog.
Until a month ago I could log on and post on it.
Now all's I get is Internet Explorer cannot diplay the web page.
I could open and post on it in Hong Kong,but not now on the Mainland in China.
I could before a month ago.
Does any one have any suggestions on how to open the blog?
As far as I know it isn't blocked in China.
The blog is about travelling so it shouldn't be considered a threat.
I appreciate your help

Your house has an extra room magically added on. What function does this room have? Who is the primary user of this room? What color is this room?
I'm no expert at it, but I like to decorate cakes when I make them. I've noticed though that when I'm piping designs on to a cake, eventually the icing in the bag gets warm from my hands and starts to melt a little bit. This makes the designs not as "crisp". How can I prevent this?
Also, can you post pictures of cakes that are not overly feminine, but also aren't just novelties shaped like footballs or spiderman or something? lol
Do you use Blackboard for something college-related? If so, what OS do you use?

Would you eat a mayonegg?
a hard-boiled egg covered in mayonnaise
Oh, it’s so cute. She sometimes takes a little pack of mayonnaise, and she’ll squirt it in her mouth all over, and then she’ll take an egg and kind of... Mmmm! She calls it a “mayonegg.” Are you okay?
I have to do a short piece of writing for an exhibition thing my dorm community is doing. We're all meant to write about our life story/how we define ourselves. I've only lived here a few weeks and I'm stressing out because at the moment it feels like my entire life / understanding of who I am revolves around the fact that my Dad died last year. I'm not comfortable writing something emotionally exposing right now. But I don't want to blow it off and write something stupid either.
What should I write about, TQC?
1. Do you find that different kinds of people post, or different kinds of questions get asked on TQC at different times of the day/night, or different days of the week?
2. How many questions in one post is too many?
3. What are questions your sick of seeing the most? How often do those questions get asked?
4. When you shower do you literally wash your feet like you do your arms, hair, etc, or do you just let the water and excess soap run over them?
5. I'm going to a super bowl party, and I've decided to make a chocolate checkerboard cake. If you were going to a super bowl party, what homemade baked good would you be happiest to see there?
TQC will you suggest some tunes for me to download? specifically those that are good to drive to. i like rock , rap and pop music so anything in those genres will be grand. doesnt have to be recent and doesnt have to be in the genres suggested. GO!

The husband brought home the free furniture he got from his brother. Yeah. There's no effing way that shit is coming in my house. It's just nasty.
Anywho..since that furniture plan is out, I was thinking about buying a couple of futons until next tax season when I'll be able to afford a nice furniture set.
Can anyone recommend a sturdy, comfortable futon? (If there is such a thing) And preferably under $175 since I'll need to buy 2 of them.
i can't decide between an ipod touch (16g, 2nd gen) & ipod nano (8g, 5th gen/video)
someone is selling me their ipod touch for $150. i can get the new nano refurbished on overstock.com for ~$140.
i will be using it mainly for walking to class/school, working out, & snowboarding among other things. what do you think i should get? i cannot decide. i used to have an ipod touch but it got stolen.
idk how to do polls im sorry :/

i just went downstairs and caught my dad feeding my dogs sugar cookie dough. i took the cookie dough away and made them some rice and pork and my entire family freaked the fuck out and told me i should stop being a self righteous bitch and let the dogs enjoy something once in a while. on what planet is feeding your dogs cookie dough (especially when one of them is already really fat) a good idea?
and so that this is not a complete rant post... since we are out of dog food i have been making them food myself... just rice and pork or chicken. is there anything else i should be adding to make sure they are getting all the nutrients they need?

What does your typical internet routine consist of? (Internet routine: the things you do within the first 5-10 minutes of getting online)
What's the scariest dream you've ever had?
My boyfriend really wants to take a vacation. My dislike of traveling aside, I don't think we should be spending this kind of money when he pretty much lives paycheck to paycheck at this point. (He would be paying for this with his tax refund)
He really wants to take me to Disney world. I am convinced there are places where we could have just as much fun for a lot less money (his mom would let us use a few days of her timeshare so that would lessen the cost, but everything else is just too expensive and he doesn't like rides!!)
What are some places we could go in the continental US and spend about a week for under $1200 (including airfare)? Bonus points if there is historical significance, but definitely not a necessity.
Would you kindly post a picture of your living room?
I'm moving soon and I really dislike my living room right now, what are inexpensive things I can do to make it look nicer? (I'm moving to an apartment so painting and/or altering the room not an option.)

What foods do you eat for an energy boost when you're feeling run-down?
Have you ever drank soda pop that was at least six months past the expiration date? Did it taste "off" to you?
My aunt and I have been having a disagreement about this for years; one time I came over and had a diet pepsi and it tasted weird...almost as though the flavor had changed. After I drank it, I checked the bottom of the can and the expiration date was over a year past. She insists that soda never changes and doesn't go bad, but I think she's crazy. I'm having a can of soda at her house right now that expires on Feb. 8th, and I told her I'm hiding a few of them at my house so we can have a taste test in a year to see if they taste differently from brand new soda.
If you don't care - how do you personally define "toleration"?

It's almost the Lunar New Year. If you have any Asian neighbors, have they set off firecrackers at midnight before? Does it annoy you?
I live in a primarily Asian neighborhood and a few years back, it seemed like everyone was doing it. Last year, only 5 families did it. I can understand how it could be annoying to everyone else but back when my family used to do it, I was super excited!
Have you ever owned a dog? What breed was it? Did you have problems with it?
(I'm asking, because my husband and I have been debating for a few months now to get a dog, and we can't agree on what breed to get. I want a German Shepherd, he wants a Beagle.)
So I'm moving across country for 6 months and I can only fit so many things in my car (the rest will be safe until I return). I'll have quite a bit of free time (and I'll be living in a boring town in Iowa), so should I bring my sewing machine, my mini synthesizer, or my guitar? I am equally amateur at all of them. The guitar takes up the most space, so that's *probably* out, but still on the table. I'm terrible at the synth, but I'd love to get better and write some silly tunes with it. I'm pretty good at sewing, but then I'd have to bring supplies and organization for those supplies. I could potentially make things to sell on Etsy (not really for profit but more for fun).
So what will it be, TQC? Guitar, synth or sewing machine?!
ETA: Or I'm planning on bringing drawing and watercolor supplies already, maybe that will keep me busy enough? Plus I can do digital art and webdesign easily enough while there. Plus I want to teach myself Revit. Okay I think I just talked myself out of all these things :( But I have room so maybe through the sewing machine in there anyway? lol idk

What did you think of the movie?
Which movies did you not expect to like but you did?

Aunt Flo just came into town and she is making me miserable. I have super bad cramps, I'm just curled up here on my bed almost unable to do anything else. I'm crying for no goddamn reason and I am so hungry but nothing sounds good to me and I won't eat it unless it sounds good. I am completely frustrated with everything. Ladies, do you get like this too?
What the fuck can I do to make myself feel better? Getting inebriated is not an option, as sad as that is.
What are your plans for tomorrow?
ETA: Decided to make myself a burrito and now I wish that I didn't. I burned the FUCK out of my mouth. Like, there is now a bubble blister on the roof of my mouth. Yeah, this day sucks. Thanks, karma, whatever I did you definitely got me back for it.
How long do you think it would take someone to come out of the arrivals gate from an international flight if their arrival time is 5:10pm?
I have an eggplant, canned tomatoes, potatoes, black olives, and spices. I want to combine them all somehow. Those are the ONLY things, I have nothing else to add to them (well, nothing else that I think would taste good). What's the best way I can cook these things together to result in maximum tastiness? I've been looking at crock pot recipes and they all involve extra ingredients I don't have, and I'm not skilled enough with cooking to customize a recipe.
I have a chocolate covered strawberry. What do you have?
