If, in some crazy alternate universe, everyone in the world was dead except you and Hitler, would you have sex with him in order to save the human race? Men of TQC, just pretend you have ovaries.

how the fuck do you feel about sex? 
for procreation only, or for pleasure too?

is there a certain scent that when you smell it, you think about sex?
or a certain song or place that makes you think about sex?

was losing your virginity a good experience, or a bad one?

have you ever had a friend-with-benefits?
did it end in disaster, or on good terms?

have you ever had sex you regretted?
were you drunk?


life is short. sex happens.
i have answers to all of these questions,
and a recent conversation with one of my best friends, that just so happens to be a virgin, had me thinking about them.
just thought i'd see what everyone else was thinking.



also, what's your favorite kind of cereal?
do they still make it?

mine is between waffle crisp and rice krispie treats cereal, but one i almost can never find anymore, and the other they stopped making. :[

1. You're Wonder Woman. (Just go with it.)

Do you keep the uniform you have on now, the red, white, blue and gold, one piece because your Wonder Woman, dammit!?

Or do you change into something more practical because, hey, you're fighting crime and you can't worry about breasts popping out in the middle of a fist fight?

2. What was the last foreign movie you've watched? Was it any good?

I highly recommend Joyeux Noel but stay away from The Class. There wasn't any point to it.

You send one of your friends to Burger King to order 8 A1 Steakhouse Burgers, a Tendercrisp sandwich and 9 large fries. He comes back with the REGULAR steakhouse burgers. You are upset because this cost you nearly $60. You would...

TQC, today I called in sick to work. I have intense stomach pain/nausea and I've felt like I'm on the verge of puking for hours now.

I called in 45 minutes before my shift was to start and now my manager is upset because I called in "only a couple minutes before my shift" and apparently we need to give at least 2 hours notice- I am pretty sure she just made up this rule on the spot. WTF, if I would have known sooner I would have called sooner.

So anyway she is trying to guilt me to come in, cause if I don't, they're stuck in the cold, she'll have to work late, I'm inconveniencing the crew, etc etc etc. I maybe, maybe could physically pull it together enough to come in but I'm not sure. Keep in mind that despite my insistent requests, I have not had a day off in a month and that all that stress may be contributing to my being sick today. I feel really bad for calling in but god damn, can't I get a break? What would you do?

bridezilla smash wedding cake RAWR

I'm planning my wedding, and have a bakery booked for the wedding cake. The bakery seemed really good before I put down my deposit. They arranged to see us outside of their usual cake tasting hours and the cakes were great. Because we saw them at their non-wedding location, the owner did not have the proper paperwork. He wrote me a temporary receipt in exchange for my deposit check, and said that he would email me proper paperwork the next day.

Well, the next day rolled around and I got nothing. Then, I got busy and left it alone for a while. A few weeks later, I called and he wasn't there, so I left a message asking for my proper receipt. No call back. Last week, I called and simply asked for him to call me back about my wedding cake. He called back and said "Oh don't worry, I'm just lazy. I'll email you with it this weekend." Guess what didn't come last weekend? I called yesterday and he wasn't there again. I left a message for him to call me back yesterday, so he *might* call me back today or get too lazy and forget about it.

It's been over a month. If he can't be bothered to send me a simple email with a scanned document, how can I trust him to design, create, and deliver the cake properly?

I also noticed that he hasn't cashed my check yet, so I should be able to cancel it.

It's 75 days until the wedding.

TL;DR: Should I cancel my deposit check, dump my bakery, and search for a new bakery?

Dump the bakery?

YES, DO IT!!

xposted with minor edits to weddingplans

ETA: Thanks for the feedback, everyone. Partially due to the overwhelming response and also due to the fact that my fiance and I no longer has any confidence in this bakery, I have canceled my check online. I'll wait for him to call me back so I can tell him personally. If not, I will call back in a few days and leave a message. Time to look for a new bakery...

Someone in my flat broke my only cereal bowl over the weekend.
On the two halves of it, they wrote 'really sorry' in blue sunscreen, but did not identify themselves or make any suggestion towards replacing it.
I already complained to them about the noise levels in the flat, so feel like my complaint quota is up.

What would you do?
Should the person have identified themselves?

ETA: Given that I don't know who did it, and have already confronted them with the noise issues, and also rarely see everyone week to week, what do I write on/next to the bowl without seeming like a pissy bitch, but also making it clear I expect a replacement?

ETA 2: I wrote on it with permanent marker, 'ACCIDENTS HAPPEN. PLEASE REPLACE. THIS WAS MY ONLY BOWL. (I'm rather enjoying all the passive agressiveness going round at the moment.

Are we all stupid?

You are the supervisor of many employees.  You have 2 in a work group.  1 is a contractor, 1 is a full-time employee.  You plan to let the contractor go because of budget concerns and their contract expired several months prior.  You want the contractor to train the FT employee on the job duties they are currently fulfilling.

When do you tell the contractor they are being let go?

If you decide NOT to tell them for at least a month but you don't renew the contract, ask the contractor to train the employee (but not vice versa), ask the employee to start taking on some responsibilities of the contractor and reclocate employee so they are close to their new work group, would you be surprised that they "found out" that they were being let go?

TQC, I posted last Wednesday that I would probably more than likely be losing my job due to the fact that the state of Illinois fucking sucks.

Well I found out that's more than likely not going to happen.

What should I do to celebrate?

On Feb. 16th I bought some furniture from Ashley Furniture. We bought the specific stuff we did because the sales lady promised we'd have it within 10 business days. I called last Monday to check on it and they said it would be in at the end of the week. The husband called on Friday and they said no, it would be in the first of this week. I'm going to call after work. What do you think the chances are that my furniture will be in?????????

What's one of your favorite memories from high school?

It was junior year. I was in chemistry class and we had a test. Dr. Meyer was nice enough to give us a few minutes to study, pray silenty, cry or whatever we had to do to prepare. Without thinking, I kinda mumbled, "If you're failing and you know it, clap your hands."

THE ENTIRE CLASS CLAPPED, IN SYNC, TO THE RHYTHM OF THE SONG. Then we all lol'd.
It was classic.

1. I live in a 3-building condominium complex with a dickheaded strata council. On Saturday night, they went around and put pamphlets under all our doors saying that on Tuesday or Wednesday they would come around with some fire marshall and check our fire alarms, inside our units.

They said if we didn't allow them access (or if you weren't home), they would come in using their master key or, if we had rekeyed our doors, charge us $180. Do you think this is fair? Would you have let them in?

For what it's worth, they stopped by today and, being annoyed but not able to do much, I forced them to take off their shoes, and when they balked, I told them they should've come prepared with over-booties. They thought I was nuts.

Right now I'm constantly sipping room temperature water, periodically eating honey mixed with lemon juice, drinking a ridiculous amount of hot tea with honey, and not talking at all. I have to sing two solos at 7:30 tonight. What other home remedies can I try?

I have this co-worker that lives with her brother. Since he doesn't have a local bank (this is a college town. she graduated, he's still in school), he just hands over all of his paychecks to cash in her account so that it would go towards bills, food, etc. at her disposal. As far as I know, she wouldn't let him get unlimited texting on his phone (they have a family plan together) for a while because she wanted him to "show control on how much texting he does on his phone and to keep under 500 text a month" and she told me the other day that she made him tell her where he was going 10:30 at night.

Someone else's opinion of it was that since he wasn't straight up paying for the phone, it was her decision. But I disagree. He's an adult, not a child and she's is not his mother. And as far as I know, he IS paying for the phone by handing over every penny of his paycheck to her.

So, TQC, how much control do you think siblings can have over each other?

2. Remove the sleeves, leave the rest alone.
3. Remove the sleeves and shorten it.

It's like a chesty cough, and I get a metallic taste in my mouth, it tastes like a mixture of phlegm and blood, but when I spit there's no blood in my saliva.
I've googled, but it suggests cold weather/asthma is the cause, but it's not realllly cold here and I don't want asthma, so I'm choosing to ignore those.

So, does anyone have any idea of what may be causing it?

Is it possible to feel light-headed/dizzy due to vision problems?

I've never really needed glasses except for computer glasses I got a couple years ago that I don't wear as often as I should but didn't really need that badly anyway.

Lately though I've noticed myself squinting a lot more and my vision has gotten a lot worse in just the past 2-3 months. I know I should go to a doctor for it and I'm working on that. I also find myself feeling kinda light-headed and a a little dizzy (not as often though). Do you think this could be related to the vision thing or is that not a common sympton of someone who needs glasses/contacts?

The woman would like to stop taking hormonal birth control/using apparatus. The man has made it clear, in no uncertain terms, that he will never, not ever, get a vasectomy. But he hates condoms too. He wants things to remain as is: wifey taking HBC. Or he supports and encourages his wife to get a tubal ligation.

Do any of you actually allow your friends that smoke to smoke in your car? I've never met a single nonsmoker that would ever even consider allowing someone to smoke in their car, just thought it odd that people were specifying that they don't allow smoking.

For the smokers:

If you're giving a ride to a nonsmoker friend in your car, do you still smoke in there, or wait until they're gone/out of the car?

Should I apply to be a census taker for this year? I am trying to save money for an immersion program in Belgium + exploring Europe + moving to Canada.

Are any of you current or former census takers? Stories, anecdotes, etc?

Will I be killed on the job?

So... I have a crush on this guy. I'm 90% sure he likes me, too.

Point 1. I absolutely do not want to go out with him. (Right now, I'm just not in a place where I can go out with anyone, and because of circumstances it'd only last a month, tops.) Do you guys have any reasons why you would NOT go out with someone you like and are pretty sure would say "yes"?

Point 2. I still have this longing to do something nice for him; tomorrow's his birthday and I'm strongly considering doing something like writing a note and a card and anonymously slipping it into his (dorm) mailbox. Is this creepy? Stupid? I'm halfway into twentiesville, is this too old to be doing the whole "secret admirer" thing? (He's out of town right now and there are reasons I can't give him something in person...)

Point 3. Since this is pretty doomed, any advice for "getting over" something like this? >_>

Amongst my stalking, I have noticed several of you are from NoVa. My roommate is throwing a surprise birthday party for her mom and would like suggestions for bars that "play old people music on a friday night??" Or generally a fun bar that people in their 40s-50s will enjoy. They don't want to travel to Georgetown and anything closer to Fairfax, the better.

Any suggestions?

DK/DC?: When was the last time you left a food product sitting out for an extended period of time and how gross was the result? What was it?

I'm graduating college next year and I'm not so keen on joining the work for immediately.
If you could go back in time, what would you have done right after you graduated? What would you have changed?

I HAVE A DILEMMA

i have an exam in my cell physiology class on thursday. the prof is holding a review session tomorrow morning, but it's at the same time as my other biology class. i missed one cell phys lecture so there are a couple things i'm kind of confused about but if i miss my bio class then i'll be behind in there and the cycle will continue. SHOULD I a) go to the review session OR b) go to my other class and figure shit out on my own?

do you believe prom is only to be enjoyed if you spend a million dollars on a limo or party bus, get totally trashed and hang out with half the school at once?
is going sober with one other person acceptable? or a waste of time?

if you don't give a flying fuck, when was the last time you were at the hospital? what happened?

What should I do tonight?

You have half an hour (from 10 pm EST or whatever hour it is where you live) to decide while I have a cup of tea.

Those of you who have very little imagination or don't feel like entertaining me with your madness can choose between the two things at the top of my list, which are practicing guitar or setting up a Flickr account for images I collect of cemeteries as part of my internship assignment.

dk/dc: I'm going to put the kettle on. How do you like your tea, TQC?

So let's say you're out at a bar and a group of guys you don't know is setting their beers on the same table as yours. One of them accidentally picks up your almost full beer and takes a sip. You politely inform him that he accidentally picked up your beer. Do you take it back and finish drinking it?

i've recently come to the realization most of my friends are stoners. i've always known this but it just never occurred to me. well, anyway, as you can imagine, some of them aren't the most reliable people.

i have plans with one of these knuckleheads tomorrow but he tends to forget, even though he's always the one making plans. should i text him reminding him to call me?

I'm doing** some online window shopping for clothes and jewelry/accessories, and I'm a fatty but can shop at some regular (read: not teenybopper, but not strictly plus-sized) stores. I like cheap stuff. So far I've done Forever21 (coz they have a "Plus" line), Target.com and OldNavy.com. What other sites should I look at?

(lol, I wrote "dong" by accident... apparently I'm 12)


DK/DC, will you show me a pic of your pet doing something adorable? Or if you don't have a pet, of YOURSELF doing something adorable?

Lets say you made a ~discovery~ about something your SO did. They didn't cheat or anything, so it's nothing really relationship-threatening as far as we're concerned. However, it's really bothering you and you want to talk to them about it. They are at work right now and get off at 6 am. They will not be off work until Saturday and there isn't much of a chance you can see them before then, but it is possible.

Would you:
A) Ask them about it when they call you at 6 in the morning
B) See if you could stop by their house before they left for work tomorrow at 4 pm, which means seeing if they'll wake up early to see/talk to you
C) Wait until they are off work Saturday and talk to them then; letting it bother you until then
D) Other (comment)

What would you do, TQC?

I'm seriously not trying to be flippant. There is this girl who (very nearly literally) has typos/mistakes in every status message she puts up. There are often multiple mistakes in the same message.

Why is this, do you think?

what made you happy today?

I got full credit on a paper I mostly BSed. On it, my TA commented, "I must say you have a way with words! This sounds like a script for the History Channel--or better--Nova." It made me lol.
sign it, dave!

What kind of car do you drive?
What is your favorite mode of transportation?
Do you have any special rules for the passengers in your car?
Do you let whoever is sitting shotgun control the music, or do you keep control?
