garden state, holding on

I gots the magic juice!

Have you read Stephen King's The Talisman or its sequel, Black House? What did you think of the concept of "flipping" between worlds?

What do you think of the idea of dying: closing your eyes in one world and opening them in another?

Dear TQC,
What is the last really stupid common sense thing that you've done?

I have a habit of after I put my retainer in I bite my teeth together to make sure it's on properly. Well, just as I was biting down I apparently decided to stick my thumb in my mouth and as a result bit my thumb very hard. :facepalm:

Advice on 3D optical effects sought

Every time you go to the theater to see a 3D film, you get glasses. These are not the old style red and blue glasses. Somehow the production crew does something with the pictures in order for images to "pop" for the viewer without crossing their eyes or hurting them with ugly colors.
I want to simulate this on paper or online. Now, don't give me that "it's in a theater, it won't work that way" crap. I don't want to make something float in the middle of the room, I want something to "pop" like a 3D comic book of yesterday. The question is, what did the directors do to make these new pictures pop without using red and blue? I know it has something to do with overlapping and selectively blurring things out, so why doesn't the picture below pop without me crossing my eyes? I have three pairs of those new glasses.

Is it okay to get angry at your SO for something they did in your dreams?

Is it okay to respond in some way (minor physical abuse, general grouchiness) to that dream?

Is it okay to hire a hooker because god told you to in a dream?

Are you petty? Will you share stories about your pettiness with me?

I made cupcakes for my boyfriend today because we were supposed to see each other tonight. Instead of calling or texting me and telling me he was ditching I waited 2 1/2 hours until he finally texted me to tell me he was hanging out with a friend instead. So I'm giving all of the cupcakes to my parents instead.

Has anyone ever stopped talking to you due to religious reasons?

One ex friend (Ex-FWB also) of mine stopped talking to me after 8 months of knowing each other. I confided in him and told him that I was researching Agnosticism. This Agnosticism thing is fairly recent and new to me so it has not always been there. He was saying that I needed help asap and that I was gonna go to hell and he doesn't want me in his life because he want to go to heaven. I guess he forgot the part where I mentioned that some Agnostics do believe in a higher being. He also said that if God doesn't want me in his life, then he will stop talking to me. This was an overnight thing. It literally happened in like a week. He was never this religious before. But I still consider him a friend even though he shut me out completely and I was trying to talk to him over FB but he was replies with things like I'm not trustworthy and he can see the "real" me, whatever that is. I'm just wondering if trying to revive the friendship is going to work.

Quote - Can't Buy Me Love


Do you use solid, soft (or conditioning) solid, gel, or spray deodorant?

Do you use a certain scent? If so, what?

What brand?

Apparently I am crazy for only liking Secret's soft solid deodorants. I don't really care which scent (although I do tend to get the botanical one if its an option), but its pissing me off because it seems the stores are carrying fewer and fewer of the soft solids and switching entirely to the gels or the solids, and I hate both. They seem to be migrating the soft solids only to their special gimmicky deodorants, like that Secret Smooth Effects one. It annoys me that I have to pay a couple dollars extra when all I want is the plain deodorant in soft form.

I obviously overthink my deodorant far too much.

I need some inspiration.

I've abused alcohol with the best of them, no addiction issues. Recreational stuff in the day, no addiction issues (cant say the same for friends). Cigarettes, off and on for 15 years, but can quit cold turkey on a dime (just did 2 months ago without thinking twice).

Food - I need a 12 step program.

So as I embark on a diet, I need some motivation.

What is the most amount of weight you've ever lost? How did you do so?

What happened to the chick that asked us if we thought her man joined the mile high club? I looked for the OP and couldn't find it but the gist is her man is a flight attendant and there was condoms in his luggage that they never used.

So you're a flight attendant and there's condoms in your luggage that you and your SO don't use. S/he discovers them and confronts you, you're in a... creative mood. What elaborate excuse would you have come up with? Nonsrs answers are strongly encouraged.

Also, I was gunning for Renee and Annie but they both got eliminated. I expect New York to pull a OMG I SHOOD HAVE PICKED U! and take next season.

Totally hypothetical

You're playing a game with some friends and things get kinda rowdy. Ears were pierced, toilet water was drank, people got naked, etc. At one point, someone had to conduct the rest of the game in a covered dog crate. This person was heavily intoxicated, and the other people playing the game were also very intoxicated. Someone decided to lock the person in the crate and go smoke a cigarette with the rest of everyone. The person in the dog crate, for whatever reason, panicked and broke the dog crate to get out. The person then proceeded to get very angry and yell at everyone who locked them in the crate. edit what is the person who was locked in the crate started throwing beer bottles at people, hitting them and spilling beer all over the place?

Who should apologize?

Who should pay for the dog crate?

help  please, tqc:

there are 5 people moving into a 4 bedroom house, and two of the people are married, and thus will be sharing a room.
the rent for the house (not including anything other than the rent) is $700 per week.
the couple wish to have the rent split 4 ways (i.e. $175 per week for the three single people and $175 for the couple).

do you think that this is fair?
or do you think the rent should be split 5 ways at $140 per person, regardless of room sharing?

(the utilities and internet bills will be split 5 ways, and are separate.)

ETA my husband and I are the couple, and it has been mutually decided that we will pay 1.5 shares, which is $210 per week. drama solved!

So, let's say your child was investing a bunch of their money (thousands of dollars) into something. You're pretty sure that it's a scam. Do you warn them?

IF YES, why? Because if the question was changed to them being cheated on, being misinformed about their child's paternity, etc., would your answer change and why/why not?

Skinny jeans for curvy girls?

I'm looking for a pair of straight or skinny jeans, but I'm a pretty curvy girl. Normally I buy cheap flared/bootcut jeans with a slightly higher waist and more 'womanly' fit (at thrift stores or discount stores), and then take them in. However, I don't have a sewing machine right now.

Where can I find good skinny/straight-legged jeans for a womanly figure (size 8 if it matters), at a good price? I've checked TJ Maxx. I have some straight-legged Levi's that fit, but there's not a store near here, nor a Macy's. I don't know where else to buy them. I live in Cedar Rapids, Iowa if it matters, near Iowa City.

What are some of your parents' bad habits that you find annoying?

I just found out that the reason why we always have soft drinks in the fridge is because my mom thinks orange/strawberry/grape soda...have actual fruit in them, like juice! She played the whole "O rly, I don't know. It's in english, I don't speak it well" when I told her otherwise. She's been drinking soda since she was a kid, it's just a habit. But now she's older and diabetic, it's a problem. Ironically, growing up... I never really drink soda even though it's always in the fridge.

As someone who wants to start using the gym, how do you MAKE yourself go when all you want to do is anything but? I even have a free gym to use at school!

My upstairs neighbors and I (and my roommate) all share a garbage account. The account is in my roommate's name. It's $40 every other month. The people upstairs are supposed to give us $20 every other month. They ALWAYS pay late (up to a week or two). Well this time, I asked them for the money a week from when I asked them. Two weeks went by. I asked them last Wednesday if they could get it to me by Friday, as they'd had PLENTY of notice. Friday, I ask them if they have my money. They say no and that they'll give me the next 4 month's worth (which will be $60 including this last bill) by the 17th of March.

Am I ever going to get my money? The wife said the husband's been having job problems, but I'm not exactly in the best financial shape either, yet I STILL PAID THE BILL.

My socially-awkward, manner-less, rude ex-stepfather's birthday is today.  There is a long history of negativity between him and my mom, but most recently, he failed to acknowledge my birthday for the first time in 23 years.

I can't decide...  Do I call him to say happy birthday? 

I'm not the type to not call just because he didn't call me on my birthday, but in light of some of his recent behavior in the last year or so, I am a bit disappointed in him and I'm not really sure what to say other than "happy birthday" and he's going to want to talk a lot longer than that.  It just makes me more anxious than I think I want to deal with.

I got an offer to move positions within my place of work. What would you do?

The wage works out to be $1 more an hour which is $160 more a month.
I'd have more downtime in the new position
I'd have to constantly liaise with the boss more than I do now, which would be to my benefit.
I'd also be able to step out at my convenience in the new position, where as someone always has to cover me in the position I am now.
Less actual work than I am doing now.

I am quite comfortable (read: I HATE change) in my position now and I am good at what I do.
The job has a lot to do with numbers, memory and concentration which I am very poor at and it makes me incredibly overwhelmed and worried.
I would step on someone's toes if I took this job. I see this person everyday.

DK/DC? This guy just friend requested me on Facebook. I don't know him. Should I add him for the lulz?

For all the trekkies on TQC (if there are any):

Why is Wesley allowed to be promoted to ensign when he hasn't even graduated from Starfleet Academy yet? I know he's smart enough and fully capable to helm the Enterprise, but if even someone as brilliant as Data had to go through four years of schooling just so he could be an ensign for 12 years..... it's not really fair for Wesley to be ensign within three years of being aboard the Enterprise.

It isn't the occasional period pimple, it's inflammation and bad texture and everything else. I eat well, i'm in good shape, and of course i'm stressed but... honestly, who isnt?! Should I just stop using everything and let my skin breathe for a couple months before trying something new? Whats your cure for acne?

A friend of mine from college has just completely disappeared. The last time I saw him was June of 2006 and shortly after, his phone stopped working. It would ring for a while then just hang up. I can't find him on any social networking sites and nothing even comes up if I google his name. Its very weird.

Urgh, I have two classical music pieces running through my tired brain and I can't remember who wrote them for the life of me.
They're both Russian afaik and at least one of them starts out with a piano- the composer hated preforming it because it was used as propaganda for the Soviet powers that be and was associated with Stalin and his revolution. It's really freaking famous- and I think it's in D minor?
As for the other piece, well, unless I can type out the bloody tune I don't think I'm going to be in much luck but it is another well known Russian piece that is very um... military? in style. Very dramatic and heavy and sweeping.
Can any one point me in the direction of possible matches?

Well didn't that set them off? When I couldn't give them a real answer to why I only wanted boys apart from "well, I just do" they decided that I was a "pathetic women... a misogynist who was doing my gender no favours" & now won't talk to me, lol.

I met him from the interwebs -- he's quite a bit older than me and has a hot accent.

We met at the Barnes and Noble cafe and drank tea. Then we took a walk and got fancy schmancy cupcakes. I'm going to see him again on Wednesday.

So my supervisor let me know that I received the placement I applied for for next year, & I'm going to be working with my best friend & other close friends of mine.

The only problem? I can't tell anyone yet since it hasn't been formally announced. I know where everyone's going to be working & I just wanna jump for joy & be the bearer of the news but i can't =[

So, TQC, how good are you at keeping secrets? What's the last thing you weren't supposed to tell? Did you?

You put an ad on Craigslist one morning stating that you are interested in adopting a dog, any dog, who needs a home.

You get an e-mail later that evening demanding that you adopt the sender's 7-week-old boxer, who threatens to take the dog to the vet to be put down if you decline. 35 minutes later, the sender e-mails you again in all caps, again demanding you take the dog, or they will shoot the dog in their backyard at midnight.

They want $500 -- their "adoption fee" -- and after offering to take in the dog for free or for a $100 adoption fee, the sender UPS the "adoption fee" to $600. You can't help drawing parallels between this situation and Save Toby/Save Fuzzy.

You get the person to sign on Yahoo! Instant Messenger, and convince them to let you take the puppy for $300. They tell you that you have until midnight to give them at least $100 as a "deposit."

You really believe this person is serious, and you don't want this poor boxer puppy to die. You're afraid if you do, you're only encouraging the behavior and this person will keep doing this to others and possibly kill more puppies -- and besides that, you really can't afford the $300 right now (though you could probably beg your relatives and some friends to chip in), but you can scrape together $100, at least to save the puppy for tonight.

You've called everyone you know with applicable knowledge and exhausted your online resources -- there is no law that prohibits this behavior, beyond reporting the person for extortion (and that's a really big stretch).

WTF do you do? Is this something for which you can call law enforcement? Is there anyone you can call on a Sunday evening to do something about this?

"You can't afford the $300 right now" =/= "I cannot afford anything ever including a dog OMG I am so poor." I don't happen to have $300 to spare right this very second -- not that it is of your concern.
zombie baby cede! :D

How do I console myself now that I am pretty sure my first and only car has passed onto a better world?

Hookers and Blow have already been tried. :'(

Also- do you have any fond memories of your first car?
Horrid memories?

Are you currently on any medication? If so, what is it and what is it for?

I burned my finger rather badly today on an iron. The only relief I get is from holding a bag of frozen food - I've been switching up between 1/2 bag of stir fry vegetables and a bag of peaches. Will either of these bags still be good to eat? They've been frozen and partially thawed several times.

Anything else I can do for the pain? I took Ibuprofen and sprayed some aloe burn stuff on it but so far the only thing to help is the cold things - my fingers become completely numb very easily when they touch cold, but as soon as the feeling comes back so does the horrible horrible pain. I'm wondering how I'll be able to sleep....

Who was the guy that made a speech at the oscars a while back, who was talking about shit like "People with occupations have articles that help them complete their occupations, and we acknowledge them as such.." blah blah? When the camera flashed to Nicole Kidman, she had a "WTF" face on. It was priceless. Does anyone have a video of this epic moment?

I just took a long, very hot bath. I guess I was in there for about half an hour before I started feeling really nauseated. I got out and drank a bunch of water, thinking I was dehydrated, but I don't feel any better. Now I'm getting one of my atypical migraines. TQC, any idea what's going on with me? Has anyone else ever suddenly felt bad while taking a bath? Do you think I'm just dehydrated?

I hurt my head a few hours ago and the pain still lingers, how do I make the pain go away?  Am I going to die in my sleep of random brain trauma?

Where is your favorite place to go with friends?

what's something you'd like to do in your life? something that you might've dreamt about when you were younger, or just something you haven't gotten around to yet.

I'd like to volunteer in third world countries. I've built houses in Cambodia, but I definitely want to do more. I'd also like to learn Italian and visit my 'relatives' that I've never met before.
