I got a little too drunk this weekend and got sick in my friend's toilet. I usually do NOT do this (it was a bad weekend), and I distinctly remember cleaning it as well as I could in my drunken state, but he just wrote on my Facebook to tell me he and his toilet are not very happy with me right now. So apparently I didn't clean it all.

What can I do to make up for it? That's pretty nasty and I feel really bad D:

So guys-
I bought a new cleanser (L'oreal Go 360 Clean, the cream one with the scrublet) like ten days ago. I love it and at first my face looked like it was clearing up some, but now I'm getting under-the-skin kind of bumps/pimples. Do you think my new cleanser is breaking me out or is this the result of using the scrubby? Because I love the scrubby. Or could it be my skin just doesn't know how to react to the new cleanser or something? idk I've used the same generic Target brand acne cleanser for a while, this is a change.

 It's my 21st birthday! My dad got my boyfriend and I tickets to a hockey game tonight, only I haven't been to one in over a year or two now, and the boyfriend has never been. I haven't had my first (legal) sip of booze yet. I'm in Atlanta, if that matters.

TQC, is it possible to get tanked at a hockey game when you're not a big fan of beer?

When was the last time you freaked out about nothing? Did you feel silly afterwards?

I happened to look out the window awhile ago and the floodlights, which are motion activated, were on. It was about 1:30 a.m.. Then I saw what looked like something moving inside my neighbor's kitchen. They have children, so it wasn't likely that someone was up that late. I stood watching for, like, five minutes. I told myself it was nothing and got in bed. After half an hour of imagining a burglar in their house, I looked back - it's the curtains in their screen porch blowing in the wind. *facepalm*

presentation notes

I'm giving a presentation for a class tomorrow. Since I don't want to read slides to people, I have some notes scribbled out on a yellow legal pad for myself. Does that look unprofessional and unprepared? (I'm thinking yes.) And if so, is it better for me to type up the notes, or copy them over to some fresh paper in relatively neat handwriting?

My prof isn't taking them up, I'm just worried about appearance.

I haven't had more than an hour of sleep, I need to start cleaning/packing because I am moving out on Saturday, and I am also seeing Regina Spektor in about 12 hours. (When I drink wine, I fall asleep for an hour or so and then wake up and can't go back to sleep - also, I only have a room to pack, not an entire apartment or anything)
Should I sleep now, sleep after cleaning, not sleep at all, or sleep and put off cleaning another day since I don't have boxes to actually pack anyway?

If you want to use numbers 1=bad, 4 =worst.

Points:
1)  I live in a rural area.  Internet connection choices are limited here.
2) Currently I have Sprint Mobile 3G network.  4G and/or WiFi are not available.
3) My other options are satellite from HughesNet, or various dial-up services.

Question:
I want to know, once and for all, which is best for online gaming (World of Warcraft)?  

I'm sick to death of sucking because of my latency.

I wish there was a way to test what the satellite connection would be like without having to fork over the $300 for installation.  I don't mind paying the money if it's going to be better, but I don't want to pay it and then have it be worse and be stuck with it.

Help me, internets!

Was talking to my best friend who's SO cheated on her earlier this week (her SO slept with someone).

He told her, which I thought was cool at least he had the balls to do so.

she asked what I would do if I were her.

I told her my husband and I have a deal between us. I've told him if he makes a mistake because he's drunk or whatever the reason- I dont need to know. If he's not sleeping with someone on a normal basis, if he's not making "mistakes" every other weekend- I don't need to know about one or two stupid mistakes just because he gets caught up in the moment or is too drunk to pay attention to what's going on.

I very much like the life I have with my Husband, I very much love him and he very much loves me. We have a good relationship, again i really like our life together.

If he didn't catch anything/get the other girl pregnant, why ruin everything over a stupid mistake?

what I'm saying is, I've told him to not tell me if he cheats on me. If he's not in love with the other girl, if he doesn't want to sleep with her again, if he didn't do it because he's unhappy with me, etc- why do I need to know?

My friend hung up on me after I explained this to get up to my answer to her question.

Did I deserve to hung up on? Is this logic wrong?

I only have it because I know situations happen, people aren't perfect and mistakes can be made. No matter how much you love someone, best intentions don't always get you out of situations once you're there. and I don't see why my life has to be ruined over something stupid when I didn't have to know about it.

So my job is basically to correct all the errors that arise due to people's mistake or laziness. Some days I feel like there are more errors due to laziness than actual honest mistakes, which doesn't make me happy. How do you feel about your coworkers? Are they lazier or more mistake prone?

Is there a program or something I can use to record a live video stream?

I'm too sleepy to google. My mom called me this morning and wanted to know because her boss is going to testify in front of the senate tomorrow about something or other about homeless veterans and she wanted to record it. If it's on C-SPAN I can record it from my TV with my dvd recorder, but if it'll be on UStream or something I don't know how to do that.


Also, I'm hungry. What did you all have for breakfast? Pictures please!

I'm graduating this semester and I'd like to give my professor/adviser a gift for being so nice to me during my time at college. I'm buying her a small bottle of absinthe and a spoon for preparing it the proper 19th century way(s). I already bought the spoon.

ABSINTHE DRINKERS: I think I'm going to go with a Czech brand I found online (buying a bottle for myself first to make sure it isn't crap) or going into town to the local absinthe bar to see if they sell bottles (I sort of doubt they do, but they may be able to offer suggestions of brand at least), but if you have a preference based on experience, express it here plz.

EVERYONE ELSE: What have you given good teachers in the past to express your gratitude for the knowledge and patience they have bestowed upon your irresponsible student ass? Or didn't you buy them anything, you unappreciative bastards? Or did you just have really crap professors? I'm sorry if you did.

Tonsillitis lol.

So - by doing the brilliant and ever-reliable method of self-diagnosis online, it seems I've got Tonsillitis!

Being foolish and unwilling to be diagnosed by a medical professional, I plan to manage my own treatment and suck lozenges. Wikipedia says (and it are fact if it on Wiki) that lozenges containing benzocaine, lignocaine, benzydamine and flubiprofen are awesome for my situation.

So ... can anyone recommend a good lozenge for my plight?

Is the TQC doctor in?

Okay, so I have this little bump right at the base of my hairline on the back of my neck. I've tried several times to see it using the two mirror trick, but all I've succeeded in doing is making myself crosseyed. I discovered it maybe a week ago, but who knows how long it's been there.

I'm pretty sure it isn't a pimple because of A) how long it's been there and B) it doesn't hurt or itch or anything. I'm really fair skinned and have a bunch of moles and skin cancer in my family, so I'm a little nervous, but I'm scared of going to the doctor and having them tell me there's nothing wrong.

So what does this sound like?
Should I be worried?

Hello, TQC

At the moment, there's a petition going around my public university to make Black Studies a graduation requirement.

I don't know any more particulars - such as whether it's attached to a particular college, like Fine Arts or English - but I'm curious as to what kind of debate this might stir up.

What do you all think? Would this be a petition you'd sign, and why? Care to play devil's advocate? What are other ways to encourage diversity appreciation aside from or along with making Black Studies mandatory? My university is in Missouri, if it makes a difference; our school doesn't exactly have the greatest reputation where racial "tolerance" is concerned, which is especially notable in light of the recent hate crime on campus involving cotton balls on the lawn of the Black Culture Center.

Does anyone have birds as pets?  If you knew a friend who lived in an apartment and wanted a bird, what would you recommend?

I have been wanting to get a bird, but I can't really tell which one to get.  I know any type of parrot would be a bad idea because they are too loud for an apartment.  Would anyone recommend cockatiels?

What do you think about wearing a different band's t-shirt to a concert?

Does it matter?

Is it ok if you keep the same genre, ie. an Iron Maiden t-shirt to an AC/DC concert is ok, but a Kenny G t-shirt not so good?

Is it ok so long as the bands aren't rivals, so a Siouxsie and the Banshees t-shirt is ok at a Cure concert, but a Morrissey one not such a good idea, or should it be only the band who are playing and that is why they have stalls selling t-shirts in case yours in the wash?

DK/DC?...Bugger off and answer another question. ;)

Hello

Would you do it?

I qualified for a clinical trial with a trusted company and it pays in the low four digits for three night hospital stay. I really need the money - my unemployment doesn't cover my rent. I would qualify if I lived closer, so I'm considering subletting my apartment for a month and moving closer temporarily. There's eight outpatient visits over the next following three months, but I could move back to my current apartment and just drive there for the follow-ups. It's less than an hour away.

Should I do it? Thanks.

I'm moving out on Saturday, so IDGAF about what her mom thinks, but she has been OBNOXIOUS the past two days and when her mom gets home, she pulls the "oh man, I don't feel good" crap. She's missing an important week-long exam, and her being here is affecting my ability to do anything I would usually do because she requires so much attention.

Will you show me an outfit you'd like to be able to have some day (because of weight loss, having money, etc.)?

My friend is going to take his driving test tomorrow. I took him out to pratice earlier and I am not very good at parallel parking, so I need a little advice. When I took my test, I had to back into the space, and pull forward and back a few times to get close enough to the curb. Is it okay to do this? I believe it is better to be too far away from the curb and inch yourself closer by adding a few more steps than hit it. I know ideally, someone should just back in and then pull forward and straighten out, but can you still pass if you have to pull back and move forward more than once?

Why is it considered controlling OFFENSIVE if a guy tries to influence how his girl dresses but it seems typical of many women to bitch and moan about how their guys dress and to try to change it?  Alternately, why is it ok for girlfriends to help each other dress up for an occasion (many girls are even adamant that it is important their girlfriends call them out on fashion no-nos) but if their SO did it, it would be a huge fight? 

Those who date girls: 
If your girl was wearing a hideous outfit (pretend you are fairly fashion savvy and know your girl), would you say something to her?  Would you suggest a change of any sort (ie "Hey, that little black number you wear is STUNNING, it would look great out on the dance floor")?

Those who date guys:
If your guy was wearing a hideous outfit (socks with sandals or something ridiculous), would you say something to him?  Would you suggest a change of any sort (ie "Hey I LOVE that other thing you wear, it makes you look so sexy")?

EDIT: To clarify; I think that the word offensive is better for the purpose of the questions.

If you found out that one of your good friends was acquainted with someone that you SEVERELY disliked, what if any action would you take? This is assuming that the dislike is based on some horrible action that this person did, like abuse or the willful murder of your dog or something else really bad, not because you just don't like them or don't get on with them due to a personality clash. How would you feel about continuing to maintain a relationship with your friend?

Are you interested in your ancestry/genealogy?
If so, have you ever tried to trace your family tree?
How far back could you go?

For me, both sides came over to the US between 1900 and 1920 and so anything further back then that is muddled or lost. My roommate was able to trace 3 branches of her family back to the 1600s! She found out that one branch came from Berne, Switzerland and actually founded New Bern NC! I think that's fascinating.

I just got an assignment for a PE course asking me to interview people from varying countries about ~fitness gyms~. I figured there would be no better place to interview people from countries outside the USA than the interwebz. So if you live outside the United States or spent a lot of time outside the United States or whatever, I'd really appreciate it if you could please answer these questions for me. They're pretty lame and I apologize, but they're what were thrown at me.

Thank you!

1. What's your name? (Feel free to say whatever if you don't wanna disclose it. First names only are fine.)
2. What is your country of origin?
3. Are gyms/fitness centers common in your native country?
4. What is the name of a gym from your country?
5. What are some of the programs, equipment and facilities, found in the gyms there?
6. Is fitness important to most people in your native country?
7. Is there anything else you want to tell me about gyms in your country?

EDIT:
I just wanna clarify that I promise I'm not having you guys do my homework for me. I do need to interview people from varying cultures and in that sense y'all are helping me to get it done, but it's not a case of "just Google it, moron." Sorry for any problems!

How come I'm not into older men but it seems like all the straight girls I know like men 10+ years older than them?

When I was about 10, I remember all the other girls liking the Backstreet Boys whereas I saw them as adults and didn't care about them. Then in high school, I knew girls who had crushes on Alan Rickman as Professor Snape which made me o_O. When I was 17, a friend of mine started dating a 27-year-old. I downright don't even find older men attractive. They can be "good-looking for an old guy", but never appealling.

I'm 21 now and I honestly would not date a guy more than 3 years older than me. Do you think it's weird of me to be like this?

My mom (who sticks mainly to Huffington Post and youtube for funny cat videos) is VERY passionate about the Health Care Bill. I was in the kitchen while she was browsing news articles and she says, with the tone of someone who has discovered something BRILLIANT, "You know, if you're going to write on the internet about how someone is wrong and they are stupid, you should run it through a spell check. Or at least not type in all caps. You look like and idiot." I laughed very, very hard.

Friends from friends who aren't your friends

So, I met a really awesome chick through one of our mutual friends (someone who was my best friend and exboyfriend). She's all sorts of rad, and hot not that I'm into her really, but I rarely get to see her because she's a senior in highschool and I have no idea if schools these days are okay with adults just being like "SUP. I LEFT ONEA THESE A COUPLE YEARS AGO. IMMA WAL IN KAY?" (And, in all honesty, I don't want to deal with that kind of work). Anyway, besides the initial introduction we've hung out three times (always with the mutual friend) and I occasionally see her around and say hi real quickly and hug her. She just added me on Facebook.
Is this weird, considering the person whom introduced us and I are no longer friends as of yesterday?
Do you have friends you're close with from other friends?
Do you get upset when two people you introduced spend a lot of time together?

Tl;dr? OMG SRS BZNZ WIF FRANS.

Dk/dc? What did you have for lunch today?

Do you get annoyed by people who constantly talk about their children, or maybe their newborn niece/nephew and are always showing you pictures and telling stories in the baby voices?

Am I a bad person for being thoroughly annoyed (even though the baby is pretty damn adorable)?

Have any of your own stories to share on this topic?

 Let's say you won a raffle. The prize is something expensive, worth about $300. You could sell it or you can give it to your best friend - for free. Your best friend has wanted that prize for a while, but... that's an easy $300 for you. 

What would you do?

Do you think people who don't like the idea of baths (that whole bathing in your own filth thing) think the same thing about hand washing dishes (in the sink)?

Are you one of those people, or do you like baths?

This is really stupid, but my Google-fu doesn't help me.

When will there be fireflies? I moved to Ohio after the fireflies were done for the year, and I think it is getting close. I am so excited. When should they be here?

Another fashion post for TQC;

What would YOU accessorize this dress with?

DK/DC: would you rather fly or take a train? For the sake of argument, either fare would be paid for by someone else, and you can go to any city you want (they have those new-fangled submersible trains or something)

Is it just me or do HP laptops have the shittiest wall adapters/chargers ever?

There's nothing wrong with the computer itself, but I've had my computer for about 4 years and I'm about to buy my 5th charger. Argh.


DK/DC/I don't give a shit about HP: What time zone do you live in?

another one from me.

my dearly beloved dog that passed away was a shar-pei. shar-pei are from china.

a few nights ago the guy i'm seeing said [apparently "racist" comment about chinese things]

excluding the fact that what he said was probably racist or something similar, i got upset because of the shar-pei/china connection.

it didn't even cross his mind that walter was chinese when he said it, though, or he wouldn't have said it.

but i'm still kind of secretly upset. am i being unreasonable? y/y?


dk/dc
i have to have 1550 hours to finish cosmetology school and right now i have 1549 hours and 43 minutes. so i have to go to school tomorrow for 17 minutes, but i'm so excited i can't sleep!

Best Full-Size American Car

In the coming months I'm planning to purchase a used car. The type I want is a full-size domestic sedan, preferably a nice big V8 with power to spare and plenty of leg room/trunk space. I'm obviously looking at the traditional big names: Lincoln Continental/Town Car, Cadillac Sedan De Ville, Ford Crown Vic/Mercury Grand Marquis, etc. With my budget it looks like I'm probably in line for a late 1990's model/early 2000's.

With all that in mind, any of you out there that own a car of this type, or have experience with them, what's your preference? Be as specific as you want, I'm most curious to know what features you especially like about the vehicle you recommend. I'm also particularly interested to know whether anyone's experienced problems with the air-ride suspension used in some models like the mid 90's Lincolns.

Thanks a lot in advance.
