TQC, can you provide me with a photograph of the bird in a coo coo clock leaving its clock? I need one thats pretty zoomed in if not large. I would also prefer it from the side but head on is ok too I guess.

I cant find a picture of this elusive bird anywhere, is it endangered?
I just want to draw it man...
Wonder Woman

The bear question reminded me of this...

My mother and I were discussing this earlier today and couldn't come to a consensus.    So TQC, maybe you can help us.

Hypothetically speaking, let's say I have a life insurance policy.

One day, I'm out in the marshlands with a group of people and we spot an alligator.  On a lark, I decide to wrestle the gator.   I jump into the water and am horribly mauled and killed by said gator.

So my question is, will the insurance company pay out to my next of kin?

Could it be considered suicide? (I did knowingly try to wrestle a gator, after all.)  Is there a clause for "people too stupid to live"?

I'm going to my boyfriend's mother's (TAME) bachelorette party in May and have been asked to bring an appetizer. I am down for salsa (standard and mango), but I would like to bring something else, preferably with a little more substance as I will be going out with the boyfriend's sister after and I would like something real in my stomach before drinking.

Any super fun ideas? Super classy ideas? My only restriction is that it cannot look like a penis.

Which of the following situations would it be easier for you to forgive? Consider this a very serious long-term relationship (or at least prior to this coming out.)

After being together for several years, you find out that your significant other has cheated on you with four or five other people. These aren't one night stands either, but, 'relationships' where the shortest one lasted for a month.

After being together for several years, you find out that a few years ago, your significant other hit someone while driving drunk. The person survived, but was injured and will never be back to 100%. Your SO was never caught and hasn't had a drop of alcohol since.

 My boyfriend's birthday is coming up and I know that he wants a really expensive BBQ as a gift, which I was planning on buying him.

I recently found out I need a really expensive dental procedure done (root canal) and soon.

I'd still like to get him the BBQ and was going to ask all of his friends plus his sisters / dad / mom to pitch in and get it as a big gift from everyone, but wasn't sure how to politely ask his friends if they'd like to contribute and I know his dad is loaded so I figured he'd probably supply most of the funds for it.

But this last week his dad and I had a HUGE disagreement and I honestly couldn't be more pissed at this man and we have no desire to talk to each other for a very long time.

Should I try to communicate the idea through one of his sisters? Or just drop the idea altogether and get him something cheap instead? Or maybe an IOU for when I have more money... For the record I think he is pretty upset with his dad too though they are still speaking to each other and I don't think the issue is enough for his dad to not want to get his son a birthday present. 

Any other ideas?

I have an appointment at the girltime dr today. Is it in bad form to be currently bleeding? My periods are super messed up due to my birth control so I go a week bleeding and a few days off then start all over again for another week. I wasn't bleeding when I made the appt but now I am. I'm so worried about it. :(

And anyone else have their implanon out before? Does it hurt? How much did it cost? How long didtake?

1. What special precautions do you take to make sure that you don't run out of coffee?

2. When Jesus returns he will need a new set of miracles if he expects to impress the jaded cynics of the twenty first century. Multiplying loaves (or even fishes) just won't do it, nor will walking on water, and any old passerby with a semi-automatic defibrillator can raise the dead.

In fact, some say the reason Jesus has been holding himself back is that he is inventing and perfecting the new miracles to get them -just right- and see if he can avoid being waterboarded by some new Pontius Pilate or Dick Cheney. So what do you think Jesus will do to score a hit on his second coming?

Hey, look...it's a rednecky question!!

(This is relating to the truck that I just inherited from my late grandfather.)


I need to add some extra carrying capacity to my little truck, so I come to y'all for opinions. Here are my options:

1) Leave the camper shell on it that my grandfather put on years ago. Pros: free, lockable, and doesn't hurt the capacity TOO badly (just can't put anything really tall in there. Cons: ugly, scratched all to hell...and I don't like it.
2) Put on a tool box. Pro: lockable, looks good, and leaves half the capacity. Cons: Only offers a few more cubic feet of cargo space, and takes away half of the capacity.
3) Tonneau cover (soft). Pro: allows me to cover the ENTIRE bed in inclement weather, and I maintain all of my capacity once I roll it up. Cons: not lockable, looks kinda silly (IMO), and must be removed/rolled before I can put anything taller than the sidewall in the bed.
4) Be a cheap bastard, don't put anything on it, and just hope that all my stuff doesn't get wet/stolen.

Background: it's a standard cab GMC Sonoma, so there is NO room for bags, suitcases, etc in the cab. So if it's raining, I need something I can put these things in. So it's pretty much down to two options: lots of space, but unlockable (tonneau cover) or just a little bit of space, but lockable (tool box).

Thoughts?

What should I do? Stay or go?

So I have the opportunity to go to Yale this weekend for a Global Health Conference. It would be great fun and I would definitely learn a lot., however, I have 2 papers due next week and finals is around the corner and quizzes like no other this week and next. If I go, basically I will definitely screw my grades and that sucks a lot. There's always next year for sure, but I already paid for the conference so I'm stuck with a pass. Oh and on top of that, I still need to buy airfare and lodging costs. Argh!

Should I say F it all and just go, or be a good premed student and do what I have to do?

What opportunities that came your way that you feel you have to sacrifice for the good of humanity? LOL...

Edit:

Addendum:
I checked out the airfare. I am looking at spending about over $500 if I leave on Friday night (my last class is at 6 pm and I am available only after that). If I leave @ Sat 7 AM, cheapest airfare is about $205 but I will miss half a day of Saturday seminars. I can bunk with some attendees, too. I'm looking at extra give or take $100-150 for lodging costs. I can definitely do homework in between lectures and at night which I plan to do anyway. Knowing how much this will all cost, did this change your opinion?

So I've been looking at a lot of job ads lately. I've noticed that some employers are listing requirements/responsibilities under admin assistant/office assistant positions that I don't really associate with those jobs.

Including accounting, bookkeeping, develop and implement systems, research speaking engagements, maintain database, preparing reports and financial data. Am I off on what admin assistants really do or are these people just asking a lot? I feel like a lot of those things should be done by the accounting, finance, and IT department instead.

Honestly, I am tired all the time. It doesn't matter if I get 9 hours of sleep or 3, I am sleepy through my day - sginificantly enough for me to wish I could go lay down and take a nap. I don't want to get up and walk around or even write a journal entry, I just want to sleep. But at night, I am wide awake. I could stay up until the break of dawn and never get sleepy. This is very frustrating. What is wrong??

Meeting friends

Hi TQC!

Under which circumstances is it rude of a friend you make plans with to bring someone with them (not necessarily their SO) without telling you/asking you?

Do you tend to bring people with you to meetings with friends no matter what? Or has this happened to you?

If yes, has this ever been problematic in any way? What happened?

Are you the type of friend who prefers having a group or more than one friend at a time when making plans or do you prefer having only one friend?

Job stuffs

So in January I applied and interviewed twice for a position at a local university. I did not get the job. They called me today saying the job is available again and that they'd like to talk to me if I'm still interested. The job sucks and the person they hired quit cause it's awful, right? Has this ever happened to you? What did you do? Do you think they'll expect me to interview again? I can't stop wondering why they hated me the first time around.

I seriously need a job so I can't really turn this down, but wondering about all this is making me anxious.

ETA: I returned their call and they offered me the job. The person who got the job first was relocated to another location of the school! THANK HEAVENS!

In about three minutes, I'm going to finish totally legally obtaining the seminal 1997 film Gridlock'd, in which Tupac and Tim Roth shoot heroin and have adventures or something. I'm pretty pumped. What are you pretty pumped about?

Also, what actors/actresses make you feel the need to see everything they were ever in ever, even if it doesn't have Tupac in it? I think I could basically watch Daniel Day-Lewis or Gary Oldman take a dump. I don't know if I'd like to watch Meryl Streep poop, but she's definitely also cool.

ETA: Sorry guys, but I don't want to post these poor fellows' responses to the internet at large. However, if you are desperately seeking lulz, just check out the personals ads for your local area. Or you can check out Atlanta, which is my local area. The folks in the ATL take bad personal ads to a whole new level.

Why do they ask you if you're wearing nail polish before you go in for surgery?

I went into the hospital for surgery in February, and while I was in pre-op one of the nurses asked me if I was wearing any nail polish at the time (and I wasn't).

My sister and I are planning to get manicures together this weekend, and I'm also going in again for surgery next Tuesday.

Do they ask you whether you're wearing nail polish because then they'll need to remove it before the surgery (in which case a manicure this weekend would be a total waste of money), or is there some other reason they ask you this?

Am I craaaaazy?

Non-serious, let's-see-what-you-think question.

Things tend to go "missing" around my apartment. Flashlights, keys, my change purse. They go missing from open spaces where I know I'd left them. I tear the room apart, give up, come back a few hours later and - wait for it - the damn thing is right where I thought I'd left it.

Collapse )

I have no explanation for this. Out of curiosity, what's your take on it (serious and non-serious, of course!)? Elves? Cats? DID? Me just being stupid? I'd be inclined to believe I'd finally snapped and developed a second personality, one that delights in stealing things and returning them just to mess with me, but when I leave the scene be for a while, I don't ever "lose" time. Personally, I doubt it's the cats: they're smart little buggers, but putting the Thing back where I left it is a little too smart, even for them.

It's a sort of dystopian society where emotions are forbidden, since they are believed to be the source of wrongness in the world, the cause of wars, greed etc. and everyone has to take injections to prevent themselves from having feelings. If they refuse injections, they go to jail. And a group of literally underground people who live underground rebel against this.

Dear TQC, I have no talents, no reputable skills, no passions and no interests. I suffer from a mood disorder, an anxiety disorder and severe depression. I have poor people skills and even worse problem solving skills. I've also run out of money. So, what exactly should I do for money considering there are no jobs out there even for people who DO have skills? I spent a year at Starbucks, but had to quit because it became too hard. That's all the experience I've got. Non-serious answers are welcome, but serious suggestions would be appreciated.

Let's say that you're a high school senior, graduating with every intention of going to college. You got into your dream school and guess what? You're so awesome, you scored an awesome full ride scholarship. Everything that associates with school is paid for - tuition, books, rent, utilities, food. Your response is needed tomorrow or they'd cancel the scholarship.

You also got offered (possibly by a generous family member) as a graduation present to take the year off and do whatever the fuck you want on their expense - travel around the world, smoke pot all day everyday on your couch, volunteer, whatever. Because you were a kickass student, you're a bit burnt out and would like to take a year off before college just to relax and recoup before heading out to college. Your response is needed tomorrow or they'd cancel the offer.

If you choose the latter and you go back to college, no other financial offer is available to you EXCEPT student loans, so you have to rack up debt to go to college.

What would you choose?

I would take the scholarship. I could always work during school and save every paycheck. By the time I graduate, I should have enough money to take a year off after I graduate.

How do you keep yourself from staring down at something and going: "....Egh, I'll do this tomorrow."?

Procrastination can be a very ugly monster. Yeah, I should shut up and stop trying to swerve around work like it's a squirrel on the road.

Would red and gold (along with black or white) be good colors for a bathroom? I have a piece of art that's those colors that I would like to put in there, but idk if it would look strange or not in such a small space.

ETA: I don't mean painting the walls red and gold. That would be waaaay too much, haha. I'm talking moreso about accessories/theme.

If you have no opinion, will you show me a picture of your bathroom or a bathroom that you love?

I'm getting my bike fixed up on the weekend for the summer! I can bike to and from work now!!!

Do you bike to/from work? How long is the trip one way? 
My job is new so I don't know how long it'll take me but I'm thinking 15-20 minutes only. Not long but biking downtown sucks anyway.

What are you excited about?

Have you ever taken a class in which you felt you had nothing valuable to contribute to the discussion? A class in which you are surrounded by individuals who know a lot more about the topic than you?

What do you do in those situations?

can any of y'all recommend any chant music? i like it but know nothing of it.

and while we're at it... what are some good summery songs? they don't actually have to be about summer and can be about poop sandwiches for all i care as long as they are just fun and upbeat.

Hi guys!

If my ICQ settings say that people need my authorization to have me in their list and I have them in my list (hence there was authorization) but I then remove them, is this like revoking my authorization? Do they notice that I removed them?

EDIT: I live in Germany and ICQ is very common here!

TQC, I messed something up at work this past week and my punishment was getting my hours cut. A bit of paycheck shittiness (but I'll make that up next week), but I have other jobs lined up to supplement it, anyway. So I ask you, TQC: best punishment ever or what?



DK/DC: Have you ever been summoned for jury duty? If so, were you selected for the trial? How much did you get paid?
I have to go in May for the first time. It's $25/day, but I could work/babysit for hella more :(

Since the chance of me getting out of it are equal a snowball's chance in hell, how can I make the most of my time? I heard selection takes forevvvvvvvvver and is super boring.

What do you call it when you take a drink from a water bottle but don't let the rim touch your lips?

I referred to it as a "birdie" casually, and someone went "WTF is a birdie? We call them 'waterfalls.'"

wahh wahhh whhaaambulance

so i'm on a dating site. i just found out that my recent ex and i have been talking to the same girl. it's only been about 2 weeks or so since i've been talking to said girl and maybe a week for my ex, idk. my ex is a piece of shit and i have done everything possible to keep her away from me (blocking her calls/texts, blocking her on social networking sites, severing all mutual contacts, etc.) because she's an abusive maniac.

i think this girl that i'm talking to is nice and good looking and i would like to be her friend, but the situation with my ex is making me VERY hesitant. it's wayyy not appropriate for me to ask her not to speak with my ex, cause hey, maybe she'll be nicer to someone new. should i keep talking to her an hope for the best? or should i tell her i'm uncomfortable and say goodbye?

tl;dr, dk/dc

what do you do for work?

Have you ever taken time off from school? What did you do during that time, and how was going back to school afterward?

I'm thinking about taking a year off from college to do something I really enjoy, but I'm afraid going back will be excruciating, since I already dislike being in school so much. Any thoughts, especially from those who have been through similar experiences, would be great.

I've been sick all week and somehow or another as of yesterday, I've lost my sense of taste. Everything either tastes very, very bland or like nothing at all. And no, my nose isn't stuffed. Not one bit.

1. Have you ever lost your sense of taste? What happened?

2. What was the last WTF thing your body did to you?

I really hope it comes back. This is driving me crazy.

Will you describe your last sexual experience using only alliteration?
Similes?
Metaphors?
Bible quotes?
Limericks?
Sonnet?
Iambic pentameter?
In the style of an abstract for a science paper?
Or something else?
perhaps a haiku?

You will be given copious internets if you do more than one of these things.

What's the last movie you saw that you thought was going to be terrible but was actually really enjoyable?
