I know there are some Lady Gaga Fans here.

Who would you love to see her collab with on her next album?

For me, I'd love to see her to a collab with Rihanna. If Gaga can do a pretty damn good collab with Beyonce, I think RiRi and Gaga would be even better.

Have you ever met a celebrity? Were they cool?

I met Gavin DeGraw when he wasn't quite famous yet, and he was super full of himself. I remember him saying, "You can shake my hand if you want to." LOL.

I've also met Crispin Glover (superfreak), Jason Reitman (very kind), and Ben Lee (also very kind).

Do you think offering someone to sit in your car if it was raining while they wait for their SO to pick them up is doing anything wrong (person is ~same age, opposite sex)?  I dunno, that's why I'm asking the question.

Should the SO of said person be justified in being jealous/angry with them sitting in your car?  Well, I wouldn't want my SO sitting in my car with me ... if that makes sense.

If the person declines your car, would you still wait with them in the rain assuming they didn't mind (no umbrellas allowed!)?

On a scale of 3-27, how bored are you right now? 14.


So, I just updated my anti-virus a couple days ago, and while I was on livejournal and hotmail and photobucket (and those only) all of a sudden "Personal Scanner" thing pops up, and tells me I'm under attack.
This has never happened to me on either of these sites before, and it's telling me I have to download something to protect my computer... so I try, and it says that an unidentified program wants to enter my computer...

What do I do?!?!?!

My BFF (male) and I (female) are going to be staying in the same hotel room/being together all day for 5 days.

dc: If you could buy a backwards-facing clock, would you? Assume that it's the same price as a forwards-facing clock. By backwards-facing, I mean that it goes counter-clockwise.

I have another question, if you don't mind:

My birthday is next month. My mom keeps asking me what I want, and I have NO idea. What should I ask for?

FYI I'm turning 21, and I'm a girl. I want it to be something that's not too expensive, because my mom is buying me dinner and taking me to a casino sometime that week, as well... I just can't think of anything. :\

I can always come up with a ton of ideas, but never when I WANT to come up with them. I was at a party tonight, and this question came up:

Which line/scene from an iconic play/TV show/film would have been made more epic having been replaced or followed by a "Clay Davis"-esque (from The Wire) "shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit?"

Your reference:

Have at it.

So far, the only one I could think of was Lady Macbeth running through the castle with "bloodied" hands going "shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit!"

Can you read and write backwards or upside-down?

Are you right-handed or left-handed?

Do you think your ability or inability to do this is related to your handedness?

I ask because although not all lefties can write backwards or upside-down, I've only ever met one righty who could, in a way that was as fluid and tidy as the lefty mirror-writers I've known.

Lefties, do you generally adapt pretty well to the right-handed world, or do you have major Issues with things sometimes?

I have a lot of trouble with vegetable peelers, glass cup measures, and I HATE those spoons that are sort of sloped... like, they have an asymetrical point that is made to work with right-handed stirring or deglazing... And in one of my classes that is in a theatre-style room with tiny "desks" that fold up from the right armrest... there is no way in hell I could ever use one of those for anything, so I always sit in back on the regular chairs and write on my lap or use another chair as a desk. I'm the only lefty in that class, too, and my teacher doesn't get why I do this at all... but everything else I kind of just deal with.


TQCers who work in a hospital,

How do you refer to the emergency department? Do you say "ee arr," "ee dee," "err," or something else? I work in a lab at a hospital and a coworker calls it the "err" and I think it sounds stupid, but maybe that's actually a common way to say it.

Dk/dc, what's the weirdest ice cream flavor you've ever had? I've tried both corn and curry. They tasted just like they sound.

A coworker just poured a fair amount of ammonia down our kitchen sinks, ran the water for a second, then poured a shit ton of bleach down there as well. Are we all going to die?

Also, she is pregnant, but when I asked her to leave the kitchen and get away from the sinks to put my mind at ease, I got mocked for being "ridiculous." Do I bitch slap a pregnant woman?

Update edit: so far nothing, but I'm quietly freaking out away from the kitchen. Everyone is telling me to stop being a drama queen. I don't like chemical warfare.

Do you have an in-sink garbage disposal? If so, has it ever backed up and overflowed?

If any of you remember my asking about if I should wash my neighbour's dishes, it's actually that their upstairs neighbours have a garbage disposal that caused a clog below their unit and a bunch of disgusting garbage water came flowing in to their sink. Then the day after I asked the question it happened again and there is now water all over their floor, in their cupboards and all over the place and now I have to clean it up because I am the kind neighbour.

Dear TQC. Have you been on a white beach-turquoise ocean-palm trees kind of vacation? Where was it? Tell me stuff?

So I'm open to new ideas (and preparing to face the fact that there are huge spiders in any tropical environment).

I bought some things from a firm and they said that they have an anniversary gifting action and that I got a two-person one-week tour to Turkey, with me only paying for flight and any additional excursions I would want to go to.

I really want to believe, but what do you think are my chances of being duped? Googling about their tour didn't give me any results - positive or negative - only what they have on their site.

[eta] It is Bauer company, selling orthopedic furniture, steel utensils, damask linen. I bought a pillow and a coverlet. They say that they are a part of a German company, but I couldn't fund any German company with that name.

Does the burden of responsibility fall on us when others take offense to our use of a word that has become part of the common vernacular? Or, is it a shared responsibility, firstly on the part of the user to use such a word cautiously while keeping in mind both context and audience, and secondly on the part of the viewer or listener to take into consideration the context and intent before reacting? Will it always be a perpetual argument over intentions vs. perceptions? Examples?

Have you ever visited a public place (i.e. hotel, restaurant, landmark, etc.) that's widely rumored to be haunted? What was it like - scary, or perfectly normal? Did you experience anything?

I visited a pirate-themed restaurant in Savannah that's supposed to be haunted. I felt like someone was watching me in the bathroom, but probably because it was dark and kind of spooky. I was kind of disappointed. I also went to the Titanic Aquatic exhibit at the Georgia Aquarium, which was investigated by a ghost hunting team. I totally forgot about it while I was there, though.

i should have left my phone at home 'cause this is a disaster

My uncle called me TEN TIMES within three hours yesterday. The first time I answered but the call dropped because I was driving, like I told him would probably happen. But then he wouldn't stop calling! I answered after the 10th time (I was home by then) and told him I wouldn't be able to talk much this weekend because I have all this crap to do (which is true).

Nevertheless, he woke me up this morning at 9 and left me a voicemail telling me to call him. He called again later in the day, and I answered, and he was like, "So why are you mad at me?"

It's creeping me out but he's really passive-aggressive and if I don't answer the phone ONCE he acts like I think he's this huge burden and like I'm avoiding him, and it's getting to be the case. He's using me as his support group (tl;dr: he's in FL, I'm in MO; he's homeless though employed; he has no friends down there; he's a binge-drinker and spent the last 15 years in and out of prison). I think it's inappropriate for him to rely on me. And he's started joking about crashing with me when he comes back up to MO in a month or so. I know he has phone numbers of guys his age at our church back home but he keeps talking to me.

So, the questions: Would YOU be creeped out in this situation? How should I respond to this? And how do I tell him how I feel without singing this to him:

"Not that I don't like you,
I'm just at a party
and I am sick and tired
of my phone r-ringing."
