Do you ever look at the expiration date on food you don't normally check? Say, like salsa?

Yesterday my friend checked some polish sausage links in the meat section at the grocery that is suppose to expire within the week.

Do you think our genitalia would've been better if they're located somewhere else?

I just realized I'm going to have about 1800 extra dollars as a result of some very generous graduation gifts.

so, will you guys recommend a fast and slow song for us?

sad questions...

Long story short, a few years ago, a friend gave birth to a baby with MAJOR problems (missing half her brain was only the start) and the baby ended up dying at 6 weeks, after numerous surgeries and being resuscitated twice.  The Friend has gone on to have 2 healthy children and is now pregnant with a baby that has worse problems with the first...the doctor wanted to terminate immediately, but she's 'going on faith' and seeing what happens.  She's told the other kids about it, and has even named it. 

Would you carry on with a pregnancy where you know you won't be taking a baby home?  Do you think it would be easier to abort early, than wait and see what happens and have to live through that horrible stuff again?  Does it matter to you if you had other children or not? 

  I find it to be a horrible situation..going through it the first time would have been hard enough for me.  I wouldn't be doing it a second time.  :( 

I also have no idea what to say to her, and I always hope that I don't run into her.

And right now I'm trying not to pull out my hair due to the fact I cannot figure out how to put video onto this thing.

I did manage to put a music video onto it but it told me the file was not supported...
(Format was WMV, video was Lady Gaga Bad Romance and I'm using Ares to get the said videos...If you where wondering.)

What the hell am I doing wrong? Is this so simple that you're all gonna laugh at me for not figuring it out sooner or I shouldn't be so hard on myself?

Thanks.

Are you as afraid of wasps as I am? They are building a big nest on the outside of my house.
I hate the fuckers. But I DO have a healthy respect for them. One autumn after smoking a blunt and sitting in the sun drinking RED wine all day, I was in slow-mo mode and apparently, so was this wasp. Drunk on my gi-normous blackberry patch which (because I am a lazy cunt and don't pick them) were fermenting on the vine, he decided to buzzzz me slowly and lovingly. After numerous purposeless passes in front of my face, I indolently raised one sunburned arm and swatted nay PATTED him on the butt to get him out of my field of vision and he desultorily stung me on the palm of my hand. I was shocked and dismayed that a fellow drunkard would do that, as I did treat him gently and without malice instead of smacking him into next Tuesday as I should have done.

What is your most romantic memory?  u guys, be more specific ^^


How many times during the day do you think romantic thoughts?


Not gonna lie, I'm boy crazy. Especially when I have a crush.

The most romantic memory I have is me and my puppy love.... they're as much romantic as they're awkward, but I think the awkwardness is what makes it so darn romantic.. our first kiss was a disaster. we spent an hour or two trying to make the other make the first move!!

Are you against or for medications like anti-depressants, anti-anxiety meds and precription pain killers?

I have steak that needs to be cooked. I am going to make my SO a steak sandwich to take to lunch at work. I was going to cook it and slice it all thin like and place it on sour dough bread. Should I make an orange mustard sauce to drizzle on top? Would that even be good? Thoughts?

So I am going out to lunch today with my friend, and I really don't know what to wear. Either I wear something that is really cute and totally weather appropriate but you can REALLY tell I'm pregnant, or I wear something that might make me a little warmer and you can still tell I'm pregnant but maybe not as much. What should I do? My friend is always really fashion forward and I only get to see her once a month or so, so I'd like to look equally amazing!

For lunch should I have Indian food or go to a bistro? They are about the same price, but the bistro has a huge open air dining area. This is nice because it's hot out, but there could be flies :/

Dogs

Do you like dogs?

What's your favorite group of dogs?
I like hounds, sight or scent.

If you could have any kind of dog, what kind would you get?
Someday I want a newfie or an Irish wolfhound. My husband wants a neopolitan mastiff.

What's your favorite mutt mix?
I've had three spaniel mixes and I think they're great.

What kinds of dogs have you had or do you have, and what were/are their names?
When I was a kid I had a beagle/cocker spaniel mix named Sally. When my husband and I first moved in together we had a lab/brittany spaniel mix named Alice. Now we have a 13 y/o beagle named Wendy Moira Angela Darling, a male 6 y/o golden retriever/cocker spaniel mix named Sprocket, and a 3.5 y/o greyhound/border collie named Phil.

Are your dogs particularly attached to anyone in your family?
Wendy always begs for my husband's attention. Sprocket loves anybody. Phil is a serious mama's boy and loves me more than anything.

Do you treat your pets like children?
We don't have kids yet and we totally do. My "kids" got me flowers and a card for mother's day while their "daddy" was out running errands. We are so pathetic. =D

I'm An Addict

So I love playing Tap Tap Revenge 3 on my mom's iTouch, since I don't have one of my own. My stepdad got to the game first though, and he already set up an account, and I was trying to decide if I should delete it and create my own, so I have an avatar that actually looks like me. Edit: I forgot to mention that he's not allowed to play anymore, so it's all me now.

I don't mind having to start over on all my points and levels, but I don't want to gain all my music back. If I deleted his account, and made my own, would I lose all the music?
And yesterday I made a Tap Tap account on an iPad at the Apple store. Could I somehow get this on the iTouch if I did delete the account?
What should I do?

TQC, I have a vacation dilemma, will you help me out?

My friends and I are planning a vacation this summer for July 5-11th in a beach house in Delaware. They're coming from DC and I'm coming from NYC. I don't have a car in good enough condition to make that drive. I'd have to take the Chinatown bus (only $15-20) to DC and roadtrip it with the girls from there.

The problem is, my cousin's bridal shower is July 10th (I forgot when we were planning). I'd have to leave early and get to the party. I could rent a car in Delaware and drop it off in NYC. But I'd have to call and find out how much that would cost. I am also under 25 and usually rental companies charge an additional fee for us youngin's. I'm assuming this will be in the area of $100, but that's just a stab in the dark.

Total expenses for the trip would come to about $300-500 (including the house rental, bus, estimated price for the car rental, gas, and other expenses). Which is expensive, but I can manage it.

Should I even go on this vacation? Or does this sound like too much of a hassle/expense b/c of the bridal shower? What would you do?
Do you have any suggestions for how to make this cheaper/easier?

heyy tqc. just to let you know, I've googled this problem, but I've found it tricky to find something helpful and specific to my problem, so I thought I'd give asking you guys a shot too, since you've helped me a lot in the past. Maybe someone better at googling could link me to something, idk.

so I just bought a new mac cos my old pc fucked up, and I basically just want to put all the music from my ipod onto it, but it obviously says it's only compatible with one computer, and just gives me the option to delete everything from it or move over my itunes purchases, of which I have none. (get all my music off cds and that.)

so does anyone know how to make this the only comp compatible my ipod with now, so I can have all my music back? cheers for your time.

edit: thanks so much to all of you for your help, especially ptr28- I now have all my music back :)

Make a computer appear broken.

Anyone have ideas on how to make a computer appear broken, but is actually easily fixable? This must be able to be done quickly and without logging into a user account.

All I could think of was unplugging keyboard/mouse, but anyone who spends more than 10 minutes on a computer daily should know that.

So I went down this guy whose cum tasted so disgusting, it was the same taste you get if you puke into your mouth and swallow it back down, except with the texture of a raw egg.

Tattoos

Any TCQers knowledgable about tattoos? My mother has been thinking of getting a small tattoo for awhile now. However, she's on coumadin (bloodthinners) for atrial fibrulation. Would this make getting a tattoo impossible? Or would it be safe to do with some preparation, like they do for dental work?

Have you ever been in a store at the same time that someone shoplifted? As in, ran like hell out of the store with people chasing them.

Do you think people do it for thrills or attention? Or that they'll actually get away with something awesome they can pawn/Craigslist/eBay?

I've witnessed this twice in the past year. The first was at Borders; a guy grabbed a bunch of those discount books by the exit, the alarms went off, and the security guard chased him. He didn't catch him.

The second time was at Whole Foods last week. About two minutes after I walked in, a guy grabbed some juice and prepackaged veggies right next to someone who was stocking that section. She started yelling and chased him, another worker joined her in the chase, and they caught him outside. The whole thing was so stupid because the store is right next door to the police station. I feel like he wanted to get caught.

Suppose you're single, and for some reason, have no urge to get into a relationship again any time soon. You self-disclose this information if the situation arises, but suppose you have one person who really likes you and wants to be with you. They fully understand your reasons for not wanting to jump into another one, but they make it clear that they want to try when you're ready. Are there things they can do in the meantime to acclimate you to the idea of being in a relationship with them?

Flipping the coin, if you were the one totally into the person who didn't want a relationship right then, would you try to acclimate them to the idea, or would you give up?

EDIT: If you elect to acclimate, how long do you wait around before calling it quits?
