Will somebody please explain to me why the hell this EXISTS???

What's the most sense-defyingly fucked-up movie you've ever seen/heard of/accidentally discovered by clicking links or reading summaries?

EDIT: Apparently IMDB is filled with fail. For anyone who does not want to fuck around with borked links, it goes to the plot summary of a movie called "Queer Duck."

oh, my life, it's so ~high school.

So for the last couple days this guy and I have been flirting on and off. He just recently broke up with his SO of about seven months. I recently broke up with my SO of just under two years. I like him a lot and wouldn't be opposed to getting into a relationship with him, but since he broke up with his SO much more recently than I did, I'm a little worried he's just using me as his rebound. Though, to be fair, it's just been nice to have someone to talk to, so I think I could (unconsciously) be using him as a rebound too.

Are we each others' rebounds? Should I shut this down before it even happens or rather, goes any further?

(To add to the complicated-ness of this situation, it would be an LDR if (and this is a big time if) we were to get involved in a relationship.)

Oh my shitfuck. My dad finally went to bed and just now out of nowhere a stinkbug just kamikazed into my forehead and plunked onto my keyboard. Almost had an aneurysm. Now there is another one on the curtain next to me. gdfgbjhgfhdfcgnvjgulkg,dfg

Is this some kind of plague being brought upon me for shooing my dad upstairs?

Bee states they do not want to be in a relationship with Aye, but Bee is aware that Aye loves them anyway. Bee kisses, hugs, and cuddles with Aye and has Aye over all their place all time.

Is Bee leading on Aye? Or no, because Bee explicitly said they did not want to be with Aye?

Do you hate it when people write stories with person A, B, C? Does it help to spell letters out?

Hey arty TQC members, what kind of art do you do?

For those of you who write poetry/prose, how do you find inspiration? How do you motivate yourself to write?

I may have the opportunity to read a couple poems for an audience as part of my area's weekly "Community Stage" poetry nights; should I? This is assuming I can force myself to churn out something decent in the next few months :P

What inspired you to say that:?

So I just saw the movie After Life, and actually met the director and was just so inspired. The movie was about death and living, and anyway it kinda made me think. If I was to die today, have a said all the things I wanted to say to people? Will there be things that I would regret? Me, tipsy and inspired texted this boy I really was into (long story short: It was an affair to remember and it kinda ended in a weird way). I said : "I just wanted to say that I liked you a lot, & I have no regrets meeting you. I hope you the best in life & I hope you will find your purpose. Good luck to you. :)"

My sister was like, "Why are you giving him the upper hand? Now he knows your feelings, and he might not even feel the same way. It's like that movie He's just not that into you. You're dumping him blah blah blah"

What did you think of my text? Was I wrong and my sister right? I only wanted to say how I feel and I wanted closure since it ended so weird. BTW, I do not have ulterior motives. I just wanted to put my feelings out there.

Have you had similar stories of second guessing yourself?

How did you cope with your pet's death?

My cat that I had for nearly 10 years died today and he was my first cat I owned. I feel numb and empty inside and yes, I cried. I have another cat that seems to know what's going on so she gives me comfort and I comfort her in return.

eta: I couldn't thank you more for your sympathies you've expressed.

TQC is planning its annual ~community barbeque~:

1. WHAT ARE YOU BRINGING TO THE BBQ???? NO REPEATS, EVERYONE NEEDS TO BRING A UNIQUE DISH/DRINK AND/OR RELEVANT BBQ/PARTY ITEM.

2. Who do you want sitting at your TQC picnic table with you?

3. Should we play capture the flag or ultimate frisbee? Or something else?

4. You can bring ONE non-TQC member with you (human or otherwise): Who do you bring?

5. There's a large chance the police will have to be called in because SOMEONE does something SCANDALOUS. Who is this scandalous TQC-member and WHAT-OH-WHAT did they DO?

This is definitely a case of TMI

How can I get rid of my acne once and for all? I'm 19 and I'm fucking sick and tired of dealing with it.

It's actually gotten worse as I've gotten older, which proves once again that God hates me.

I wash my face twice a day with benzoyl peroxide soap and exfoliating scrub. At night I take antibiotic pills and sleep with this really strong topical gel mask. I use supposedly anti pore-clogging makeup, and try to get enough sunlight. This is the stuff everyone tells me to do.

And yet it doesn't ever fucking getting any better. WTF is wrong with me/why did I get stuck with horrible genes in pretty much everything?

Should I consider birth control? I hear it helps. What else should I consider?

so i have this one professor that i would like to eventually get a letter of recommendation from. i'm currently auditing one of his classes for fun and was planning on auditing one or two more in the future. would it be weird to ask him for a recommendation when all he knows of me academics-wise is his 101 class that i took a few years ago (and did very well in) and then i just audited a bunch of his classes so i didn't have to do any work? i don't want to take them for credit because i don't need them and i'd rather focus on my other courses but i also don't want a lame letter of recommendation either :(

eta: and we do talk a lot and have gotten kind of close so it's not like i'm just some nameless faceless student asking him for a rec.

I'm having these awful and weird stomach cramps all the time. They hurt and last for about a minute or two and go away come back. I think they are growing pains because I'm 4 months pregnant, but I'm not sure.

This question is inspired by "The Words I Would Say" by Sidewalk Prophets. It's about what advice the singer's grandfather would give him if he were still alive. I liked the song before, but I never fully appreciated it until now.

What do you think that same friend/family member would say to you?

Related, but not from the same inspiration:

Do you pronounce the 't' in words like 'mountains' and 'Canterberry'?

EDIT: Looks like it's basically just a dropping of the T whenever 'nt' appears in a word, I can't think of any other that have that in the middle.

Apparently a lot of people do, but back home, mountains is prounounced like 'mounins' and Canterberry (a neighborhood back home) is pronounced 'Cannerberry'.

i got glass stuck in my right foot about 7 months ago and never managed to get it out despite much effort, eventually it was just getting too painful so i gave up. i was on holiday and i couldn't be bothered to go to the doctors and it healed over in the end and i kind of forgot about it. last week a hard sharp lump appeared in the fleshy part of the middle finger on my left hand. i didn't cut it on anything, the skin was unbroken but this tiny hard thing was pushing through from below. is it possible that that piece of glass somehow moved around my body or is that nonsense? also, i tried to get it out but i lost the fucker again, it has sunk below the surface. what do i do? or am i going mad?

I spent some time early on Saturday assigning album art to almost every song in my library. After that I transferred the songs I wanted to my phone only to find out that of the transferred songs, only like 20% (if that) of them transferred with the album art. 

I did it mostly just for seeing the art on my phone!

LONG BUT I'M REALLY CONFUSED:
dk/dc:
What colour are the walls in your bedroom??
____
now the long one ;)

So, basically my cousins girlfriend (of 4 years) has decided to go crazy.
She keeps telling me and my cousins off via text message; keep in mind she is 30 so it's quite strange... and her and I have always gotten along fine so I'm totally lost.

My uncle passed away just over a week ago (great timing you dumb bitch, wait until a guys father dies then go crazy); and in his will left his company to his son (owner of crazy girlfriend).

This girl does not work. She is a dietician, who just finished school (she did not work while in school). Her and my cousin live together; in his apartment. She took his keys and locked him out of it and is now saying if he breaks up with her she will take him for everything.

They are considered common-law I guess, so technically could she take him for half of all he owns?
Also, because the company was left to him would she get part of that as well? It's a HUGE company that is pretty important to our family; especially now that my uncle has passed away and it was his pride and joy.

She sent a text saying she won't leave until it's completely transfered to his name so she can ruin it. If I save said text message and this thing goes to court, could it help?

Do you know anything about this kind of stuff? Have you ever gone through something like this with a common law relationship?
I don't know what kind of laws apply. She didn't pay for anything so could she even take him for half of everything?

Obviously they know more than I do; but I just wanted some people to ease my thoughts about it haha. I'm so frustrated because we are all really upset right now over my uncle dying; and her heartlessness is honestly coming from NOWHERE.

I've got a friend who calls me waaaay more often than I'd like. I'm talkin' several times a day, sometimes as early as 8am in the morning, which is fucking ridiculous and kinda infuriating because I'm still sleeping goddamnit. It's not like either one of us has anything to yakity yak about, just her homework and her boy "drama". Suffice to say, I ignore most of her calls these days. I don't like doing that, but I'm just not that into talking on the phone.

Question(s): Am I wrong for ignoring most of her calls? Should I just go on and tell her to stop calling me so much even though I'm pretty sure she'll take it badly? How many times a day/week do you think is excessive for calling someone?

Should I adopt this puppy from the local county shelter?



7 week old female GSD/Rottie mix.

I have three dogs as it is. A male GSD, a male pit bull, and a female pit bull. All my dogs are rescues. Two from a shelter, one was a stray. Is getting a fourth crossing into dog hoarder territory? lol. Our yard is a decent size and our house isn't disgusting. It gets dirty easily from the fur and dirt but we don't wallow in it.. our house is presentable. All the dogs are well fed and seem pretty happy. They all live indoors and have a doggy door to go in and out as they please when someone is home. My husband and I work opposite shifts usually.

Obviously I'm probably going to get the puppy anyway but still.. SHOULD I NOT? lol sorry if this was tl;dr.

partial spay

So tomorrow we're taking our cat in for her second spay.

Backstory: When we adopted her, at ~8wks, she was spayed. After about a year, she started showing signs of heat. Took her in for blood tests and vet says that a piece of ovarian tissue must've been missed that is still putting off hormones. Tomorrow we're finally able to take her in and hopefully get it fixed. Vet says they may or may not be able to find the tissue, and that the surgery will be a longer process with a larger incision.

Question: Have you ever heard of or dealt with a partial spay? How'd it go? Did recovery take longer?
