Any physically large people in the house? If so, are you sick of fake-ass people coming up to you and the first thing they say is, "WOW, IT LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE LOSING WEIGHT!" even though you know you've gained or stayed the same since actually seeing the person, so you know it's a flaming crock of (deep fried) baloney?
Do you get panic attacks? If so, what triggers them?
Am I the only one whose eyeballs hurt like hell after a 3-D movie?? Damn technology..
so i was never really a guy-magnet. but i've always received some sort of attention from someone at certain points in my life.
when i was at community college, for instance, i had 3 guys hit on me constantly one who even had a girlfriend. not that i encouraged such a thing, in retrospect it was flattering.
now however, for the past two years i'm having the toughest luck with guys. a. i do not encounter any. i'm an english major so most people around me are female and those who are male show no interest in me at all. almost all of my friends are girls and the occasional guys i come in contact with are gay. b. when i do encounter boys at bars and parties i do not get any attention. wtf am i doing wrong? is it the braces? lol
What's your favorite country with the exception of the one of which you're from?
i hear girls say all the hot guys are gay but i find it to be quite the opposite, unfortunately for me. WHAT IS TQC'S TAKE ON THIS?
Okay, this is a long shot, but I thought I'd ask.
There's a radio broadcast called "RDS: The Gate" or something like that. This guy tells a bunch of creepy paranormal stories with classical music in the background. They play it on WBCQ sometimes, but I'm thinking there should be some place where you can download an archive.
The ones I have are one where he tells a story about a train that wrecks into a UFO, and a Halloween broadcast where he talks about the curse of Allister Crowley.
I'd like to hear more from this program, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.
My friend tells me the narrator is Ringo D Starr, but I have no idea if he knows what he's talking about.
Does anyone else know what I'm talking about? These are really good programs.
I've become really down and I could seriously use some cheering up. Can someone PLEASE make me laugh my ass off?
What are a few things that make you laugh so hard your stomach hurts?
AMERICAN TQCers who are still awake! Thinking about your high school English teachers/classes:
-Did they seem to grade more based on subject or on grammar?
-Which of those things (topics/grammar) gave you the most trouble in class?
so uh... you guys still up for that orgy?
are you sober right now? if yes, why?
PLZ TAKE THIS DRINK THAT I DID NOT PUT A ROOFIE IN. ty.
What is some unusual thing that you're bad at?
I'm bad at drinking/being drunk. If I start to feel buzzed, I get really nervous, quiet, and tense because I don't want people to think I'm drunk. If I have one or two more drinks past "buzzed", I throw up for 3 hours. For this reason, I've never been what I could call "wasted".
I'm thinking about a TQCer who lives in Denver. Who am I thinking about TQC?
Do you ever wonder what happens to a TQCer who doesn't post anymore?
Who are you missing in TQCland?

I hardly ever get sick, but I have the cold from hell right out. None of my meds are working and I have Day and Nyquil, Theraflu, and Tylenol cold. TQC, how can I make myself feel even just a little better? It feels like my head is about to explode. :(
What was the wildest thing to happen to you or someone else at a wedding?
My old roommate and his other friend were best men at their best friend's wedding recently. His other friend got punched in the face by his extremely drunk wife since she's a violent drunk. And she's a cop. LOL.

Hey! I'm tired of wearing foundation..I've been wearing less and less but I need some coverup for under my eyes . I tried using different brands of tinted moisturized but it always gave me a "muddy" look. Maybe a bronzer powder??
I have very fair skin. My skin is in good condition, but not perfect. Any suggestions?. What success have you had with makeup that covers up your flaws but isn't "heavy" makeup?
PS I've tried Bare escentuals and I don't like the look.
1. Are your doctor and dentist offices always really cold? I'm going to the dentist today and I put on a sweater because I know it's freezing in there.
2. How the hell do you get people to agree on where and when to go to dinner? My husband and I are making reservations for his parents, brother, and his brother's soon to be wife, and we can't get any information out of people (what they want to eat, what time they will be available, etc). This is for Friday, so it's not like we have all the time in the world to talk about it, either. Would it be rude of me to just pick a place and a time and tell them, if we don't come to a decision soon?
what are you plans for easter?
On Easter sunday I plan on going to a sunrise service if I can find a church that offers one, also gonna attempt dying easter eggs/an egg hunt for my kids.

Okay, I have an hour and a half to write, outline, and make a powerpoint for my tribute speech. Should I use GaGa as my subject, or Marilyn Monroe?
I'm baking bread, and the recipe calls for water between 110° and 115°. I don't have a thermometer - is this temperature super important? I have no idea what exactly that temperature feels like, but it says "warm" so would just adding water that feels warm work? Or should I go buy a thermometer?
[Edit: Where can I buy a normal mercury thermometer? I went to Rite Aid and CVS and they only have electronic ones that you stick in people's ears.]

What are the best April fool's office pranks?
When people come over to my place, I've noticed a few of them opening closets and doors to rooms they have no business in even after I told them not to. What can I scream at them to get them to stop?
ETA: I have been trying to work on being a more sociable person and these people are not helping. I am thinking I should invite over the people who do this and have a bunch of their photos in a closet, arranged in a shrine. This will freak them out and make them stop, y/y?
How did you meet your best friend?
I know I already posted today but...
My boyfriend and I live together. We are great together, but we are very very VERY different people and we have a small living space. Before I begin bitching, I would like to say that I am not perfect. I have an insane amount of clothes, I hate doing dishes, and I leave lights on. However, he has guns. Everywhere. Way more than what is reasonable and he has places outside our apartment that he can keep them at. He uses them for hunting season which is only a few months of the year. He also leaves his socks and towels everywhere and leaves the toilet seat up.
Everytime I try to tell him how much this all bothers me, he gets very defensive and it turns into us talking in circles about who is the worse housemate. I'd really like to work this out with him, but I have no idea how else to say it to him other than a straight forward, 'I really wish you wouldn't do that.'
To those with live in boyfriends, do you have any advice for how to make our living more harmonious?
For those who were really happy about Obama being elected, do you still like him as much?
My roommate has a blind date on Saturday (maybe). I am totes secretly in love with him. What should I do to keep myself from crying in the bathroom with the door locked that night? If I do choose to cry in my bathroom with the door locked he's threatened to break it down before, and I don't want to buy a door.
If you accepted every single shift your coworkers (save for two, because of family obligations) needed covered for the last 9 months, regardless of how last minute they were and if they put you into 15 hour days, and you needed three days covered so you could go to your grandmother's memorial, and no one was willing to cover those three fucking shifts, how pissed would you be, scale of 1 to 10?
Any tips for maintaining my irritation at them? I haven't yelled at anyone yet. Yet.
Is it inappropriate to try and use guilt to make my coworkers cover these shifts?
It's a fucking memorial service, it's not like I'm asking them to cover so I can go to Hawaii or something enjoyable.
ETA: We have set schedules, so no, there's not an option of saying "hey there, bosslady. Can I have this day off?" We're responsible for covering our own shifts.
(PS, thanks for validating me.)
Do you think the full moon affects behaviour or moods?

What other "shocking" news have you heard recently?
If you could learn to speak a language fluently, not based on it's usefulness to you, but just based on how fucking awesome it sounds, which one would you pick?
I'd have to go with Norwegian and/or Swedish. I'm 80% they are just made up and based on whatever sound a person thought would be coolest given the situation. Dutch/Afrikaans is a close second.

So, someone just emailed me to call them to schedule an interview. The problem?
The place is an 1 1/2 hour away from me, which means that I would have to take a day off from work and take the bus up there or wait until I go on vacation in 2 1/2 weeks and have my hubby drive me up there. What should I do?!
ETA: She scheduled for me during my vacation!
Would it be shitty of me to quit during my vacation? Us, including my husband, since we work together? We have 5 staff everyday and that would be a major blow when we quit. Our boss was actually really decent about our vacation - she approved it without us finding coverage first because we never call in and this is our first vacation we've taken off since we started the company almost two years ago.
How do you destroy a voodoo doll of yourself?
Myself & my flatmate are trying to quit smoking. But earlier today I got antsy & went & bought myself a pack. I haven't had one yet but I did use some of my flatmate's change he had lying around to buy them.
When he gets home from work I know the first thing he'll want is a smoke because he's got a huge day today.
Should I hide the smokes & pretend like I never went to the shops?
Or, should I give him a smoke seeing as he did pay for some of them?
I can't decide between supporting his quitting & giving him what he is owed. And also, we always take each others money so that's not a problem.

TQC, will I have my trig test tomorrow? For weeks my prof has been saying it will be "probably in the middle of this week", and there is no school Friday. However my prof has been out sick for 3 class periods now. We haven't heard anything about the test since the beginning of last week and our sub doesn't know anything about the test at all. We haven't gotten a review nor an outline of what will be on the test (and we usually do). What do you think? Other students in the class and I have been pretending that the test is tomorrow but we don't even know what will be on it.
You find out that a Matrix-like technology has been developed where you can implant knowledge and skills directly into your brain, immediately mastering said knowledge. Thankfully you don't need to be surgically altered to receive it. They just use electrodes. You can only pick one skill or set of knowledge to learn. What do you pick? On the other hand, if you get yourself a big hole with metal in it implanted in the back of your head, you can learn unlimited skill sets. Would you choose to have this done if the option were available?
Do you have any paintings of a disappointed horse?

I have a friend in the military currently stationed in Japan, the friend recently got a phone so we exchanged numbers so we could text. Problem is; they're telling me they sent a few texts but I haven't got one. I have a blackberry tour and they have an iphone, fwiw. Anyone have any idea why I'm not getting the texts? Any similar experiences, maybe? Is there something either of us needs to do? They've texted (is that a word?) other people here in the states and it worked.
Will it cost me extra money to text someone in another country? How does this work?
Me and the friend thank you in advance.

Has your relationship ever gone through a period of small arguments every single fucking day?
Mine has been like that (and worse) since we've become very sleep deprived and without the financial freedom we once had, since the baby a year ago.
What should I do?!
I'm really annoyed right now.
What are your plans for tonight?
My plan consists of not freaking out and making things worse. Ugh.
what was the last thing the universe told you?
i have been searching for a specific brand of headphones in shops since my last pair i loved to death, and i can't find them anywhere. it must be telling me to save my money instead.
What's the last thing that fucking pissed you off?
NEW QUESTION TIME
i think this is the most i've posted in the littlest amount of time, but i think the rules let me have two questions on a page...
so friend-in-japan apparently sent me a text using something with an address that said ####@textfree.us this should be free, yes? i'm afraid now because you guys told me it'd cost a lot for international texts, but this is like an email, yeah? an thus, should be free, i'm assuming?
DK/DC: what do you want your wedding cake to look like if money was not an issue/you could have WHATEVER you wanted?
i want details... what kind of cake, what kind of filling, pictures of examples, whatever. i've been watching cake shows too much, and now i want a big bird cake for my non-existant wedding. my mom hates this idea, but i think i'm warming her up to it.

Today my mom gave me a Passover gift. I told her that there is no such thing as a Passover gift but she doesn't believe me idk. It was a cropped jacket. It was nice, but I think cropped things make me look really weird for some reason. I told her I didn't think it fit me right and she said she would buy me something else, but I said she didn't need to.
Do you think it's rude to tell someone you don't like a gift?
What sorts of clothing do you avoid due to it looking completely stupid on you?
So I just finished a pin-cushion making project that I randomly picked up. Now, i'm obsessed. I need another sewing project, something I can make that doesn't take too long. I have unlimited supplies, since I use the stuff from my theater department's costume shop. Any ideas?
1. Someone very close to you does not wear pants that fit. Basically this person's pants do not fit and they looking fucking ridiculous. You can see ass crack, muffin top, their fly is always unzipping itself, etc.
Do you do anything? What do you say? It's been 3 years and you're pretty sure no one has said anything. This person can afford new pants. But they will not go shopping with you.
2. On the other hand, why the fuck can't I get a better job? I pretty much spam every ad on Craigslist with my resume.
What kind of car/truck do you drive? How much did you pay for it?
What is your dream car?
TQC, I am terrible at parking. No matter what I do, I'm either at a 45 degree angle, or right on the line. Do you have any tips on how to park better?
Party music suggestions?
Upbeat, alternative/indie and pre-00's preferably, but whatever you like putting on at parties to set a good party vibe.
dc; how serious and protective are you of your hair? For example, if someone was to shave your hair into a mohawk while you were asleep/unaware, would it be OMG END OF DAYS NEVER LEAVING THE HOUSE AGAIN UNTIL IT IS RESTORED TO ITS FORMER GLORY or would you laugh it off/just keep it or change it to something slightly less ridiculous?
I'm about, oh, a 0.5 on the hair-seriousness scale. I already have a mohawk and if someone fucked with my hair when I was asleep I'd probably just keep it for the lulz.
Do you fiddle around with your mp3 player/radio/whatever while you're driving like I do?
What's your latest obsession?
Do you have to match your bra/underwear (regardless of who does or does not see)?
ETA: How many bras do you own? I read somewhere that the average woman has 6-8.
So, i am 16, turning 17 in June and i asked my sis previous week how she would feel if i wanted a tattoo for my birthday. much to my surprise, she said she is okay with it if my mom is and even more surprisingly, she offered to pay as a bday gift. so just asked mom she would be okay with it. she would be, though it depends on the design and the place. both have several, so it wasnt shockers that i came up with the idea.
but to get back to the question part:
i would like to know if:
- you got any tattoos? if so, how did you pick the design and what was your motivation to get one?
- any nice designs for a tattoo on the back?
- any tattoos you would really want but will never have? (e.g. people's reaction or just offensive signs or words?)
I am interning/studying in this graduate research lab at a major university. I'm trying to find 4 articles published by the lab, through the university's search engines. Only ONE of the articles is available, and it's the oldest one. DOES THIS MAKE SENSE TO YOU?!
Any tips for finding free versions of articles that are for some reason unavailable via the usual methods?

It takes me a while to open up around people, and a friend that I'm facebook fighting with (omg.. don't get me started. this is the most immature shit in the world) told me that he doesn't know how I EVER expect to have any sort of real friendship.
I mean... I don't know. I just feel like I need to completely trust people before they get to know my private life. Even then, I don't tell them EVERYTHING. Is that unreasonable?

TQC, I'm having a hard time deciding what to do with my life. I started with Dental Hygiene, then switched to Business (marketing), and now I've switched to Pre-Pharm, and I'm just now realizing that it's really not what I want to do. If I'd done the whole four year thing the right way, I'd be graduating this spring...but clearly, it ain't happenin'. I don't have any particular interests, and don't think I have a natural affinity to anything. My career testing suggests I should be a travel agent, which I am not interested in. I'm interested in vintage things, but can't think of serious careers that can be made out of it.
So, TQC, I ask: what sort of careers can you think of, that would be suited to me? SRS/nonsrs, but just know hooking and selling blow have already been ruled out.
DK/DC: What kind of cell phone do you have?
Inspired by not wanting to talk or think about dying, what's the BEST THING that happened to you in the last month?
Inspired by a few posts down.
What's the closest you've come to dying?
My friend is in a situation.
She had a baby with a loser, who wanted no part in the child's life. The eight times he has seen the kid within four years, he has physically lost her three of those times. Two years ago, he had the option to seek custody of their daughter, and he didn't bother, thereby forfeiting his rights. Now, he's trying to seek full custody (out of no where.) Also, he is trying to get any type of visitation that he can get. The parents don't get along -- he has made death threats, harassing and verbally abusive phone calls and texts (which are saved.) She is worried for the well-being and safety of her child, especially since he is involved with drugs and excessive alcohol consumption.
Now, what can she legally do to keep him away from her family, and more importantly, her daughter, for good?
ETA: He's been in rehab twice for drugs, which should be on record. He has been in two car wrecks, because of drugs... also on record. She isn't sure about a restraining order, because she wants something absolutely permanent. Is one? I have never filed one, nor she, never even known someone who has...
Thanks for any help.
