Seriously though these cards exist for a reason. Do people actually think this is sweet and not creepy or a joke?
checking everyone in this community is sane:

So, what other bad decisions can I make tonight?
Note: Hookers and blow are, in fact, a good idea and can only enhance this, so they're out.
Edit: Assume you've tried to talk to the neighbors.

Every time I've had an opportunity to call a potential employer in the past, I always get "we'll call you if we're interested" or "you'll hear in about a week" and then...nothing. I want to take initiative over the couple hundred other applicants. Advice?
Thanks TQC for the future inbox notifications.
Do you like Joseph Gordon-Levitt?
UNKEMPTRAMBLINGS! I totally can't remember your corresponding LJ name. I'm collectingroots on tumblr. Help me out, poetry friend? :) WHO ARE YOU
What are your thoughts on this?
I think it's sad, because while I got a hell of a lot of heat for not agreeing with Bush 100% of the time, I never wished death on him. Nor did I ever call people names for not supporting Obama.
UGHHHHH my country is disappointing.
DK/DC: What are your plans today?

One of the women I interviewed with kept saying things like, "You'd be starting here at a great time..."
Does this indicate that there's a pretty strong chance I'll be offered the job, or is this a vague statement that can be said to any interviewee?
I'm going to Carraba's tomorrow night. What should I get?
i never used to be this restless there. i actually used to be able to tolerate it just fine. but now i can't stand all the sitting and the time passing so slowly and i get so crazy and antsy and i'd rather just call in sick and one of these days they're going to tell me that's enough and fire my ass.
what should i do?!
obviously finding a new job is the most logical answer but that's not an option in the very near future.

1. What do you think I should do? I'm too lazy to maintain anything that requires straightening, since that usually takes me a few hours, even with shorter hair.
2. Do you like your hair? I used to hate mine because it got me teased and because I had no idea what to do with it until a few years ago.
3. Have you ever dyed your hair any ~unnatural colors~? I had bubblegum pink for a summer.
DK/DC: What is your favorite song remix?
How does this make you feel?
So far there are no negative comments, just people sympathizing and saying they'll donate.
How may I help you today?
That Starbucks' coffee really does taste burnt. I usually buy their bastardized drinks (caramel macchiato and the like).
 Will you also tell TQC what sort of drinks you like to purchase from Starbucks or from your coffee place of choice?

How is it different from dating?
Have you ever been in one? How did it turn out?
"The suspect entered the bank and demanded cash, police said. He did not have a weapon and no one was injured."
How do you rob a bank with no weapon?
Or are they only assuming there was no weapon because he didn't take it out?
An individual can go in and demand money and the teller just gives it to him/her?
They haven't caught the guy yet.
I feel a bit uneasy, because maybe he DID have a weapon.
Do these types of things happen in your neighborhood?
Do you get jittery because of it?
anyway the path that she is choosing in life is greatly going to effect her for the rest of her life, I mean seriously in not talking small stuff, I am talking like prison stuff to be more clearer DRUGS and no not the just the USE but selling not hard crap just WEED but still, anyway she was recently arrested for this exact reason and she takes it so lightly.
I feel like Im the only one who gives a dam what happens to her, not my mom, or the grandmother who raised her, JUST ME and i feel like I shouldn't say or do anything, but that is not in my nature. I have to help but there is only so much I can do to help her; What I am asking for is whether I should just give up?, or keep trying?, even though she may hate me, I am willing to take that to protect her.
I know shes an adult now, and I can t really tell her what to do, but I cant just stand here and watch her Fall so far that I or anyone else cant REACH her! someone please help me figure out what I should DO?
I hope that this version helps better than the LAST i was HALF ASLEEP, and HALF AWAKE when I wrote it earlier, so I totally MISSED the PUNCTUATION. I HOPE THIS HELPS SORRY EVERYONE FOR T

Right now I'm thinking I want to be a mermaid. I have long wavy bright red hair currently and I kind of like any excuse to do glitter/sequins in blue and green tones.
Anybody know how to make a costume for myself without looking cheesy/without being too literal?
Should I go cheesy and literal?
If a mermaid is stupid, what other ideas do you have?
I want to feel comfortable and still feel pretty in my ridiculousness (with sparkles and such)
do you have trouble finding pants that fit?! what's the best brand or store that has given you the most luck? all my pants are huge once they stretch out, and i never carry around a belt with me.. maybe i should buy a smaller size and suffer til they stretch?
I want something I can put a lot of time into on the side and really enjoy that won't be done in 30 minutes and isn't just minigames. I love RPGs, but not Strategy games, so that's kind of a problem, too. :/

What do you think of newlyweds smashing cake in each other's faces?
Current place: apt in a complex, decent sized 1 br, 2nd floor, lots of windows and light, nice but generic, far from school. Recently had the tires on my scooter slashed while parked overnight.
New place: basement apt in a house, similar size but kind of 'cave like', less windows and less light, less nice but vintage-y and kind of cute. Off street parking that's more private. A few blocks from school.
Let's assume with the new place we'll save about 200 a month betwen rent and lower utilities - saving money would be really helpful but there would be a few lost comforts. TQC, which would you prefer to live in?
What do you think?
It makes me sad; this is my home state and I know a lot of good people who struggled to make ends meet for many years before moving away and many more who still struggle.
It could be about anything from how to make a decent tqc post to how to beat _____ on _____ mode to the proper way to put on xyz makeup to super serious life lessons. One-liners to tl;dr's, serious and non serious are all appreciated.
it's frustrating. but they won't even consider another place. but my friend's boyfriend is in from out of town and we're really good friends so of course i'm going.
how should i make the best of it? i'm thinking getting drunk and throwing veiled insults at my other friend's boyfriend who i really dislike. but if you have more mature/civil ideas, by all means, suggest away.
onionrogue I put 50 extra lbs on my deadlift bar because of you. THX BUDDY.

I'm bored and my weekend only started 2 hours ago, What should I do to entertain myself?
but anyway, do you think it's at all possible that she's keeping herself in the public eye and going on reality shows not to stay relevant or famous but to keep bringing in money to care for her EIGHT CHILDREN and keep them in a nice house instead of a 2 room garage a la The Jacksons?
and think about it, it could cost a million dollars just to send all those kids to college, and they should probably be in private schools right now for safety reasons. i dunno. i'm thinking too much about it now, i think, hahaha.
Do you talk during the day via texts or phone calls?
Reason I'm asking: My boyfriend of nearly 4 years and I moved in together after 6 months of dating and being inseparable. For the first 3 months, we worked different jobs. However, I quit my shitty job and was hired where he worked, so we ended up living AND working together for just over 2 years after that. Last spring we were both laid off said job and now we work in different places and different hours. I work two jobs - wake up at 5:15am, work from 6:45-11am, go to job #2 from noon until late afternoon/early evening. He works 10:30-6pm. Other than Saturday mornings, we don't talk or see each other awake in the mornings. After he gets off work, he usually hangs around and goofs off with friends (he works at a motorcycle shop and they play with their toys when the day is over) for a couple hours. I normally don't see/hear from him until 7 or 8pm unless I text or call him. As silly as it sounds, I don't know how this is supposed to work...making time for each other...since he's always just been there in the past. We go out an evening or two during the week, but have been too broke/too busy to go on any trips (big or small) together. Maybe this is just life after the honeymoon phase is over?
He sees us as normal and in a healthy relationship, whereas I feel like we don't spend enough time together. I don't know if I need to chill out or if it's abnormal for a serious couple to see each other this much....
Inspired by this and the conversation I had with my parents about it:
Let's say you're going to be executed, no getting out of it. The "upside" if you can call it that, is that you get to pick your method of execution. You can choose any method of execution that has ever existed anywhere in the world, as long as it's been done before. What method do you choose and why? (And no, you can't kill yourself before you're put to death, sry2say).
Guillotine for me, because seriously, it's slicing my head off. More than likely pretty quick and painless with no room for error.
What's really getting you down lately? (It's not my knees, ftr)
2)Tell me about a product or place of business you'd recommend. Why are you recommending it?
Wednesday night I was at an intersection at my campus walking to class and saw two girls get hit by a pick up. It was the first time I've ever had to call and I was the only person, besides the guy who hit them, to stay with them till the paramedics came. Crazy shit.
They just charged her $550 on her student account, without a description of the charge. The ride to the hospital was less than 5 miles. Is that ridiculous charge for the ambulance? Is that a typical charge??
Should I buy the American Apparel Double U-Neck dress to show off my adorible pregnantness?
I have no boobies, so putting bandaids over them isn't a problem. I just need a dress that I can throw on in the summer that will make me feel sexy and I really like how the dress looks in my head.

I did today and I feel bad about it, but I think it was deserved. I was supposed to view an apartment today, but I ended up waiting over an hour and the woman who was supposed to show it to me never showed up and never called to tell me she wasn't coming/was going to be late. I kept waiting because the rental company told me "Oh she should be there any minute, she knows about the appointment" when I called to say she wasn't there. They kept calling her to make sure she was on her way but she wasn't answering her cell phone. She had called me earlier that day to confirm the appointment so I know she knew about it. Was I right to make a complaint?
you and your spouse are pretty young and currently have one small child. you can afford to take care of that child's medical needs, but cannot afford to take care of a second child unless you apply for state aid of some kind. intentionally choosing to have a second kid is a bad idea, right?
sorry if that's worded oddly :/
As of yesterday, my city is allowing residents to put produce scraps etc into our yard trimmings bin for pick up, which will then be composted by the city!

it also annoys me when they try creating sequels to them, too.

He offered to trade me, for my phone, so I said sure. I don't have an iPhone.
When my phone broke I just switched my SIM card into a new phone. Would it work like that with the iPhone? How would I add a data plan?
We switched SIM cards to see what would happen and it will let me text and call, but not get on the internet, which is why I assumed I needed a data plan.
I know the mass of two asteroids together, and it's 2.658*10^11 kg. Now they want me to find the mass of each one, using the equation M = 1.74*m, where M is the more massive asteroid, m is the less massive one.
How do you do that given that ginormous number and that dinky equation? I feel like there's an extra step and I can't figure out what to do. If I set 2.658*10^11 kg = (1.74*m)/M, that doesn't even make sense.
edit: THANK YOU thatgirljj
