It seems like this might be a strange question BUT:
Does anyone here fly kites? Like actively fly a kite often?
I want to buy my dad a kite, and myself a kite, and not spend a ton of money, and not have it suck ass.
Hes really into kites and not much brings him joy since he is such a miserable,overbearing man.
I've been looking on ebay, but I dont know what kind of kite would be best.
TQC, tell me about your kites, or kites in general..please?
He has been flying kites like his whole life so, not beginner.
is there anything you'd like to clarify for the class?
TQC, my beloved Altima has bit the bucket :( and now I have to either have the engine rebuilt or buy a new one.
I'm now looking on Craigslist, and I found an ad for a car with a blown transmission that has other parts and would fit just right, but it says that they "lost the title". Wouldn't I need the title, to prove I hadn't stolen the car? I've seen Full House, I saw what happened to DJ's 16th bday present! I would just be taking the engine and maybe a few other parts, if it matters.
DK/DC: what is the last major damage that happened to your car?
Have you ever had a relationship you hid from friends or family?

If your boyfriend/husband wore a bracelet that said "I love boobies" would it bother you?
will you share silly things that still make you laugh?
I was watching meet the press american version (im in australia though, so it was on at like 4 am) and i couldn't sleep, and they had a senator i guess talking and her title was like
Katie so and so (DOH) and i guess it stood for something but i laughed forever
Would you take back an ex? If so, why?

Will you post an article or talk about some really weird phobia?
Mine: I recently read an article about trypophobia. The fear of small clustered holes. The symptoms are getting itchy when seeing (for example) honeycomb. Things like that.
i woke up having a panic attack this morning after having probably the worst dream of my life, i crap you not. it embodied all of my issues. it was awful.
do you think that justifies a mental health day(the waking up to a panic attack more so than the dream)? 'cause i took a lorazepam and called into work.
Are there any tv shows which no longer air that you miss? What are they?

Yesterday when I was walking I started to get a really uncomfortable pain in the front of my shin. When I flex my foot it really aches, and it drives me nuts. I didn't think I pulled a muscle, but maybe I did. I don't do anything super active, besides walking my dog everyday and using an eliptical for 10 minutes daily. But I never noticed it during those activities.
What did I do to my leg?
What is your favorite flavor of yogurt?
How important is it for you to have some sort of creative hobby? Do you feel unfulfilled if you don't do anything other than work/hang out/watch tv?
Brought to you by me with the art and music and crafts ETC vs. my boyfriend with the go to work and chill out at home/play video games/watch movies thing. I don't mind, I just don't understand how he can be happy doing just that (no I don't feel ignored by video games lol). Am I just hyperactive? haha
edit: he's an artist, he just hasn't done it in a while. He even has a degree in fine art.. so I keep trying to suggest doing some art haha

Are you presently being affected by the Icelandic volcano action? If not, do you know people who are?
I'm not, but my boss is probably going to get stuck in the UK (she's due to fly back to the States on Sunday). She's probably going to start stressing out about it... any minute now. Also, my wife had a trip to Switzerland scheduled for next week, and we'll see if that happens.

Lucky for me its my Husband. The odd thing is I'm actually kind of a loner and usually like being alone. But my anxiety has been chronically terrible lately and I seriously only feel calm and safe with him when he is around. Since he works 9-5's and I usually work 2 or 4 till 8 or 9 We are apart a lot. I almost feel bad for him. Luckily he likes me as much as I like him but.. sigh.
How do you feel when people say something racist/sexist/classist/homophobic/transphobic/xenophobic/anything else offensive and then follow it with "lol jkjk it's just a joke! It's not supposed to be taken seriously! God, why are you taking it so seriously, I said it was a joke! You need to get a sense of humor and stop taking yourself so seriously hurhurhur."
TQC, I can't believe I'm wasting my first question on this one, but...
I've been listening to Glee's Like a Prayer non-stop since I dl'ed it a few nights ago. I've never been a Madonna fan, but I feel like I need to be now...so I need some rec's.

TQC, can you help me find a particular product?
Backstory: My sister is mentally ill (not the "ha-ha, she's crazy" ill, but the serious, abusive, controlling, "the world is out to get me" mentally ill) and has a seven year old son. He attends school locally and does pretty well, but has an obsession with legos. He'll allowed (by his Nana, my Mum) to take two lego guys and a small ship to school everyday. His backpack has a couple of small holes in it and this week, he lost some pieces to his little ship. He's heartbroken! To prevent the situation from getting any worse, my mother gave him a backpack she's been stashing for a couple years. Ever heard of the Annoying Thing / Crazy Frog? Well that's what's on the backpack! You can even push his belly and he makes the Annoying Thing noise. Cute, right? Well... my sister has a problem with her son having anything "nice", and because this backpack is "nice" she took it away from him and is using it herself. Yes, you read that right: She took it from her 7-year-old, for her 29-year-old self. So now, he's heartbroken over the loss of his little ship, AND about having to use the old backpack that has holes in it. She also said he is no longer allowed to carry his legos because of his old backpack.
I feel this is wrong and have vowed to find this backpack and buy another one, so he can use one. The one she took from him is two shades of blue and has one main pocket and a smaller pocket on the front with an embossed, plastic picture of the Crazy Frog with a little speaker housed inside so when you press his belly, he makes noise. The problem is, I can't find it ANYWHERE!
TQC, will you help me find this backpack?? Please??

So, my friend bought a bike (motorcycle), and then sold the bike six months later to some other guy.
turns out the bike is stolen, my friend got a call from a cop about it yesterday.
My question is: Do you think my friend should pay back what the guy paid for the bike?
My friend did not know it was stolen and got the paper work for it and everything when he bought it- there was nothing to throw out a red flag at all.
The guy has mentioned something about getting his money back, and my friend is between jobs as is (layoffs are rapant in his area) so he's leaning towards dodging the guy and think he doesn't owe him money anyway.
ALSO: what reprecussions could my friend face for selling a stolen bike, even if he didn't know it was stolen?

Backstory: discussion about dumb protagonists in another LJ, whether Forest Gump was dumb, and what makes a person/character dumb.

The husband started his 2nd job this week. He's going to be working 10p - 7a shifts 4 days a week, and then 8a - 2p shifts a few days a week (although next week he's scheduled 5).
This means he's going to be able to get maybe 5 hours of sleep on the days where he has to work both jobs. He's doing it so we can pay off our $6k in credit card debt and pay off his car quicker. His goal is to work both until at least December, if not this time next year.
Any tips to keep him sane?
Do you drink energy drinks? Do you think those will help on the days when he's only going to get 5 hours of sleep?
do you ever notice any patterns that happen in your life? something like "bad things happen in 3's" or something of that like?

did you attend your highschool prom? if so, was it worth it? If not, did you regret not attending? What do you think are the pros and cons of attending or skipping out?
I'm debating if I want to go, I have no money to put towards it and it's pretty pricey to go, I have no date and my prospects are limited. I rented a house for the weekend with some prom goers so the whole night wont be waste if I don't attend. I fear if I don't attend I'll regret it or if I do attend I'll be kicking my self for blowing so much money if it's a drag. I'm a senoir btw, i'm chill with about half the ppl in my class, but still I'm on the fence.

Mine was something about dolphin intelligence.
I'm wondering if there is a website somewhere that would let me stream full episodes of Lost for free, particualrly season 6. Preferably wihtout having to download something with virus-risk.
I just finished watching the first five seasons on netflix, and hulu has only the last few episodes of the season, so I'm missing the first like 10 of season 6.
I dont know if I can have the patience for the whole season to come out on dvd.
Besides this one, what is the worst post in TQC history?
Did you participate in Silence day? What are your views of Silence Day?
For those who don't know what Silence Day is: It's a day where people who support gay/bi/trans-gender rights and/or are gay do not speak all day long to show what the world would be like without them there.
I don't condone the behavior if said gay/bi/trans-gender person claims to be christian, but if they don't claim to be christian, I don't have any bad feeling towards them being gay/bi/trans-gender.

Different colored frosting and white cupcake liners or different colored cupcake liners with white frosting?
Questionclub, I have a really funny friend who is also a raging, contrarian bitch. It's causing me a lot of grief and causing her to have less friends which causes me to have less friends. I've already said "People think you're kind of a bitch" and she replied with "Haha, yeah. I can be a bitch sometimes. *laughter*"
I want to slap her face but I'm morally opposed to violence.
How do I stage a successful, mature intervention and get her to tone down the bitchiness?
As of late, my professional life has sucked massive ass. When I started grad school, I set my sights too low and took a crappy job that any idiot can do and pays a laughably low salary. I finished my masters almost a year ago and still haven't really progressed in the career department.
So now I'm planning on taking a year off. I found a free group trip to Israel where I would learn how to speak Hebrew for the first month or so, and spend the remainder of my time doing volunteer work. I'm hoping that this will give me a break from job-hunting, and when I come back, I'll be in a better position to find a job in the states.
Some people I've spoken with said that by doing this, I'm giving up and fucking up my life. Others have said that this could be really good for me. What do you think?
Where would you like to go on pilgrimage, if you could go on pilgrimage anywhere?
Don't know or care, have you ever wanted to post a question to TQC, only to change your mind and not post it? What was the question about?
 It doesn't necessarily have to be a religious pilgrimage. It can be something such as visiting the home of someone you always admired or a place you've been longing to visit your entire life. E.g., I visited La Coste (home of de Sade) in 2005.
 More grammar fail from yours truly.
Would you like a copy of my butt?
I have mock interviews in my Admin class. Which means I have to have dress up and look nice and fancy!
My sense of fashion comes in at a -7 on the scale.
I know I'd like to wear a skirt (Which is odd, cause I NEVER do) and possibly some low heels.
Here's where you all come in.
Will you help me find those?!
Haha, I'm plus size, so my options are kind of limited. Price = $$ if that. Also, I don't really know how to walk in heels, so they'd have to be low. I'm a converse/nike wearing girl.

I have a Youtube account with lots of old videos on it. I don't want to just delete the videos and have them disappear forever... I want to save them. I was able to save two of them because there was a link by the videos that said "download mp4," so I did that for the first two of them, but now the videos don't have the "download mp4" link beside them anymore. Why not? And is there any other way I can save/download my old videos to my hard drive so I can then delete them from my Youtube?
