 How do you feel about children flying by themselves? If a parent escorted the child (5-10 years old) to the gate, made sure they got on the plane, a flight attendant checked up on the child every 15 minutes or so during the flight, and the child was met by another relative as soon as they get off the plane.

Would you feel okay with your child flying alone, assuming they were okay with it?

Last Thursday I went to a Flogging Molly concert and was in the pit. My foot was injured somehow, though I don't know how bad the damage is. How long should I walk on a sore foot before having it looked at by a professional? I'm hoping it's just bruised internally or something. I have a foot thing and no one's allowed to touch my feet. So I REALLY REALLY don't want to have to see a doctor about it =(

ETA: If I do go to a doctor, do you think they can give me a tranquilizer of some sort or something before I actually go in? The idea of having my foot touched makes me hyperventilate for reals.

My office is closing up early today so we can all go bowling. I'm normally a really good bowler. TQC psychics, will my foot screw me out of winning all the prizes? (fwiw, it's not the foot on the leg that supports my weight when I bowl).

Plane tickets

I am planning a trip to Western Europe in July. I will be going to a lot of countries..but I don't know which country I should land in..actually it doesn't even matter, I just want the cheapest tickets.I feel like there's an obvious answer to this that everyone knows except me! I have an "agency" that I've used before, and they search for cheap tickets for me.. but I feel like they've ripped me off before. Anyone have any tips?

Help me decide where to go

My wife and I are planning a vacation for sometime in May. A week, maybe 10 days.

At the moment, we have two potential destinations on our list: New Orleans or New Mexico (Albuquerque and northwards). We will be flying in, and will be renting a car.

If you are familiar with either area, what would you recommend in the way of sights to see, things to do, places to go?

[And I know it depends on what we want to do. At the moment, I'm not sure, so I'll listen to any suggestions.]

An odd tl:dr post

As a lark, you and a friend made a little film about the environment. Turns out, it was pretty good and an agent approaches you and the next thing you know, you have corporate backing and the film is playing in theaters. It's all pretty exciting, but due to the small print in the contract, your cut of the profits is actually really tiny. By the time the film gets nominated for the Oscars for best documentary, you stand to only earn about $22,000. Still, it's exciting you're going to end up on the red carpet and attend the Academy Awards. The day before, as you're picking out something to wear, James Cameron visits you. "Those bastards screwed me out of Best Director for Avatar last year and I want to show my contempt for the ceremonies, and I want you to help me. I'll give you $200,000 if you show up on the red carpet, stepping out of your limo, wearing nothing but a plastic Glad trash bag pinned around you with clothespins, Crocs on your feet, a shower cap on your head and cold cream all over your face. Millions upon millions of eyes will be on you and they'll laugh their asses off, and for the next week it's all people across America will talk about. It'll be talked about more than the ceremony itself and that will be my revenge. Will you do it? Will you be my agent of vengeance, facing undeniable shame, critique and laughter for 200k?"

 It's been some time TQC. I come bearing a fashion/dating question. Or something.

So I'm going out for coffee tonight, with a guy I've never met. We've been chatting for a little over a month maybe, have a lot of mutual friends. He's a very cool, classy guy. I would definitely not call this meeting a date, but I would like to impress him. Being who I am, I'm concerned about what I'm going to wear, as I usually am in these situations. I was about 95% sure I would wear a gray sweater dress with a black belt around the middle, (3 quarter sleeves, come to about right above the knee) with black tights and flat black boots, which is an outfit I love and feel comfortable in, that is, until my two very good female friends chimed in and said "No, wear some yoga pants and a sweater, he'll probably be wearing jeans", which I think would be totally undressed on my part, and I like to dress up and do it more than my friends. I also know he has a good, interesting sense of style. I'm pretty sure that's still what I want to wear but now I'm a little concerned about being overdressed. What do you think?

TL;DR: Would wearing a dress out for coffee be trying too hard?
Thanks!

EDIT: My friends don't know what they're talking about. I'm wearing the dress! And I will probably post a pic of the outfit on tqc_updates  . Thanks again everyone!

I am terrible at consoling my fiancee, and the bigger the problem the worse I am. I care, and I'm interested, and I want desperately to be able to be there when she needs me, but I never seem to say/do the right thing.

I know it's kind of a dumb question because you TQC, as wonderful as it is, doesn't know my fiancee and the particulars and whatever, but the big thing I'm scared of is one day something BIG will happen - a close friend or pet or family member will pass away - and I'm not able to help matters.

My mom and I recently got into the series 24. We were watching the second season today and they keep making references to the OC, but neither of us can figure out what OC stands for here. I've tried googling, but the existence of a popular tv show with the same name made it impossible for me to find anything. So - does anyone know what "OC" stands for in this show?

Also, for a broader question, what are your favorite tv shows to watch in a marathon?

Edit: I know it's not Orange County in the show. It's a highly private office of some sort for the president, and he's in Oregon and in the OC at the same time.

Your boss tells you he is going to quit his job and asks you if you want to take his place. He says you will be able to choose whether you work six or eight hours per day, and advices you to work eight because, obviously, you will make a lot more money.

You say yes and you sign the contract.

Because you were forgetful and because you assumed he told you the truth, you didn't make sure that this was correct until after having signed it. The owner of the store then informs you your hours are noon til six, six hours, which means a hell of a lot less money.

To those who watch Marble Hornets, do you think Tim is the masked figure, totheark?

My sister and I were speculating this afternoon and we think there is definitely something odd about that guy (Tim). His behavior in Entry #20 was very strange (coughing, short temper, taking pills), and I think I recognized the jacket the masked man was wearing when he attacked J in Entry #18. They also appear to have similar hairstyles.

I'm moving overseas (Japan) in a week and a bit, and breaking up with my on-and-off boyfriend of three years to do so.

I'd like to get him some kind of nice parting gift, but I have no idea what.  Buying him something utilitarian (like clothing or tools) or relevant to his hobbies (which are mostly collecting figurines and playing video games) like I usually do doesn't seem appropriate.  I was thinking along the lines of jewelery, but I've never seen him wear it and I have no idea where to start with jewelery for men.  I'm pretty sure he got a nice watch from his family for Christmas, so that's out.  Price range would be about $50-150, and it has to be something I can buy in Australia, because I don't think something shipped from overseas would get here in time.  Any suggestions?

Also, has anyone ever had to face the situation of trying to make new friends in a country they don't speak the language of fluently?  How do you cope with settling in at the beginning?  I'm not a naturally social person, halp (ETA: I know enough of the language to live without too much difficulty, but I'm not fluent enough to talk about people's interests in detail, have discussions, make jokes, do friend stuff basically.   Aaaand I'm hopeless at starting conversations with new people in English as it is, so I'm feeling worried that I might end up spending a lot of time alone unless I make plans to tackle the problem head on :( )

If you were a pear-shaped fatty on the lower end of the plus-size spectrum (size 16) with comparably small boobs, which bathing suit would you choose: this one from Target OR this one from Newport News?

I grew up in California and there chow mein had thick noodles, green onions, and a dark sauce, but that was mainly cooked off.

In Ohio, where I now live, all the chow mein I have come across was watery, a light color, with thin noodles and large hunks of celery.

What type are you used to?

Is there anything type of food that changed when you moved? Other than not having a particular chain in your new area.

What is your favorite Chinese dish?
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
What is your favorite place to go for ice cream?

What is a restaurant that you miss going to, be it because you moved or because a chain nearby closed?

coffee!

I've been having a debate with a good friend of mine lately and google is failing me so I figured I'd come here.


Sometimes I'll order a coffee to go but it takes me so long to finish the coffee but I don't want to get a smaller size so I'm often faced with luke warm/cold coffee. My solution is an easy one: I microwave it for 30 seconds or less and continue drinking my coffee. I haven't gotten sick and the coffee still tastes fine to me. I use a copious amount of cream and sugar in my coffee wherein lies the debate with my friend.

He claims that microwaving the coffee in the microwave because of the half & half is going to make the half & half go bad or make me sick. I understand that microwaved coffee isn't the most appetizing but will it make me sick? Should I avoid doing this?


And, the most obvious answer is to just go buy a new coffee or make some at home but it's not often possible based on location & activities

Okay so do you know that episode of Friends when Rachel has that new job and her boss and the other colleague smoke and she doesn't, and she misses out on all the additional work/benefits/promotions because they get arranged down in the smoking area?

How much do you think that reflects real office life?

Do you ever drink for the specific purpose to drown your sorrows?

If so, when you get there, do you feel happier or do you wallow in sadness more?

If I had a paid account then I would make a poll but I can't so- should I drink to drown my sorrows or should I stay sober and suck it up?

ETA: if you wish for me to stay sober, will you please provide a compelling reason?

When sitting down, would you rather have your buttcrack show or your underwear?

Also, a friend recently tried to break up with his girlfriend and she tried to hurt herself. When he asked what he could do to make sure she wouldn't do any self harm, she told him to stay with her. Any advice on how to deal with this? Have you ever dealt with it yourself?

What's a really cool practical tip that not very many people know? You know, those things your grandma taught you that you thought were weird but actually work.
- Cutting onions in front of a fan makes you not cry.
- If you don't have an iron handy and you have something that's wrinkled, hang it up in the bathroom somewhere (like the back of the door), turn on the shower as hot as it can go, close the door, and let the steam remove the wrinkles. Saved my ass this morning before my interview!

If you don't know any cool tips or want extra credit, will you post something that makes you lol every time you see it?

Birthdays Away

We're going on a cross generational holiday + boy/girlfriends. Mum, Dad, Me + boyfriend, Brother + Girlfriend.

It is my mother's birthday, and my boyfriend's birthday, during this trip. Obviously we'll be doing awesome stuff just holiday wise, but what are some awesome 'travel birthday' things we can do?
Ideas for gifts small in size?
Have you been travelling on your birthday, and what did you/your friends/loved ones do?
I really want to make this a great birthday for both of them, and I want to do some really sweet things for my boyfriend, who is very mushy.

Should I go home and surprise my mum for her birthday?

Factors to consider:
It's on a thursday. I'm at uni 200 miles away, so it's a 4 hour train journey. My dad is visiting on the saturday so I could come back with him. I wouldn't miss any classes. The ticket would cost £30. It's not a significant birthday, just the first I haven't been around for. It's the final week of term, so as well as not being able to celebrate on the saturday, thursday and friday would be out of the question too. I will be seeing her the next weekend.

Do you choose sides when your two friends break up? If not, what do you say to the friend who's approaching it high school style and acting like you don't want to be friends with them unless you cut off ties with the other person? Have you lost good friends over this issue?

Would you/have you ever done this to someone else?

My boyfriend and I are experiencing this and our view is their relationship, or lack of one, doesn't involve us so it's not our business to act like it does. But his best friend of 7 years (he's also been friends with the girl for equally as long) is throwing a bitch fit. I'm unsure of what to say to him to make him understand.

Is the video under the cut offensive to you, or hilarious? Do you know someone like that IRL? What foolish mistakes have they stopped you from making?

DK/DC: do you do anything special for your birthday?
I wear a tiara, but that's it. I've seen some people who get money pinned to them, and wanna know how the fuck you get that game started.

Moving out.

What kind of things (furniature, kitchen, livingroom etc) will I need to buy for my new apartment?
It already has a brand new fridge, oven, microwave and dishwasher, and a washer and dryer.

My tick bite itches, but I don't want to scratch it since it's tender and I don't want to get it infected. Can I just use a normal itch-relief cream or something? Surely?

What's bothering you? Doesn't have to be physical discomfort or anything.
