*What's the funniest site you've come across recently?*
Someone linked me to (NSFW) Lurid Digs the other day and I was honestly crying with laughter at some of the entries. Don't click if you have an issue with graphic images of gay men posing in badly decorated rooms. The best thing about it is the commentary which attempts to ignore the half naked men and instead focus on the bad interior decorating. My personal favourite is the discussion about an ugly attic that just happens to include a man suspended by his scrotum.

*What's the creepiest/most horrifying site that you've come across?*
Someone linked me to a site a while ago that is without a doubt the most disturbing site I have ever seen. It's even worse than the infamous "anorexicrecroom", which was a Not-Safe-For-Life pro-ana worship/kink community. Anorexicrecroom included pictures of a game I can only describe as "bulimic bulls eye" wherein emaciated bulimics tried to hit a target with their vomit. I kid you not :\
Yet this other place is far, far worse. It is the embodiment of Rule 34 and not in an ~OMG that is so disgusting hahaha~ way but rather in a ~jesus christ does Interpol know about this?~ way.
I actually contacted the federal police about the site because it's one thing to enjoy having someone pooh in your mouth whilst wearing a gumboot on your head and quite another to involve people &/or animals that are inherently incapable of consent. Unfortunately a google search shows that the place is still running :(

I need to use you guys. So, srs only plz.

I'm writing a paper on Color-blind Racism in Education, but I'm having a hard time coming up with an actual thesis/question/whatever.
For the sake of flexibility, Education can mean higher education or public education or whatever works best for you.

I am just at a loss and it is making me sad. I need to be more specific, but damn.
Maybe I should take a nap?

EDIT: oh right.

These questions are about the T.V. show LOST. You have been warned.

Do you like, love, hate, or ignore LOST?
If you've been watching religiously, how do you currently feel about the latest episodes?
Who are your favorite & least fav characters (dead or alive)?
Which character would you sex up?
Why do you think Kate isn't a candidate anymore?
If you could bring back one character that has died and kill off one that is alive, who would they be?
Will you just use this post to talk about LOST in general? Anything goes. Even LOST hatred. I don't care.

AND: A question google could probably answer, but I'm google-tarded: How many episodes are left?

Update on this delightful creepy phone calls post...

Three days now, and I'm still getting the calls.

I've called the police, but in the absence of a concrete threat there's not a lot they can do. The phone company either can't or won't trace the withheld number/unknown number that's calling me, and apparently the police brains trust hasn't been able to do it either.

I can't go and stay with my family. They're a couple of thousand miles away, so it could be awkward. Most of my friends who I'd trust with this are also a couple of thousand miles away, and the ones that aren't so far removed - like my neighbours - all have small children who I wouldn't particularly want to see caught up in this if it turned bad. Creepy Phone Call Person should not get his kicks from watching me and a four year old.

I'm home alone for at least the next month - just me, a cat and a dog who's well on her way to senility. It doesn't seem to matter whether I answer the phone or not. They call every four minutes like clockwork either way.

What can I do to make myself feel safer?

What can I do to actually be safer?

ETA: Changing my number could be difficult. That's the number my husband's command uses to get hold of me if something bad happens to him, and military red tape is very slow to recognise when something's changed.

Would you date someone six years older than you?

I've recently started seeing this guy who is six years older than me, and for whatever reason, when I sit down and really think about, it kind of freaks me out. How do I get over this?

TQC, this guy is so cute and sweet and amazing. Whenever I think about him, I get all giddy and excited and distracted. The problem is this whole situation seems to be interfering with my ability to eat. Yesterday, all I had to eat was some toast and yogurt, a few green beans, and a chicken thigh.

But then, at 4am this morning, I woke up with a killer tummy ache. Probably because my stomach was collapsing in on itself.

Do you get this way when you start dating someone you really like?

Any tips on getting myself to eat?

I rarely to never eat red meat. I tend to eat Quorn products, chicken and fish - I'm not a vegetarian but as my other half is, we eat veggie together, I eat white meats if I'm out.

Lately I have been craving steak though. I had one saturday and I really really enjoyed it - something before I couldn't have even stomached. TQC why?? It's not an iron thing, I have high iron levels in my blood. So what is it?

So someone organizes an Ice Cream Social at work (let's say it's an office). The best frozen custard place is hired to come on-site and set up "shop". Offered are three varieties ofthe creamiest, most delicious frozen custard ever with a few toppings such as chocolate sauce, sprikles, nuts and even fresh fruit. The custard is fresh made (that morning) and so is the fruit. This is quality stuff we're talking about. The table where they are serving is covered in a pretty little tablecloth with a couple balloons - all around well presented treat for the office. The cost to you is $5.00 - this happens every month through the summer. Are you in? If not, why not?

So yesterday my boyfriend was telling me how much his mom loves me and that she blurted out that we "have to get married in the same protestant church as her other sons" ...
I'm Catholic for one..but am not really involved in the church and wouldn't even want a church wedding (I'd want an outdoors one or something).  My boyfriend is Athiest even.. 

Do you think she'll really make us do that?  Am I wrong for thinking it'd be "wrong" for us to get married in a church where neither of us practice that religion?   Am I being ridiculous and she was just joking, silly?    Am I thinking too far ahead (ie: we're not even engaged LOL)?

I had a nightmare about his mom having all the say in our wedding planning last night...lolol

If this happened to you when you were actually planning your wedding what would you do?

I got divorced and changed my name back to my maiden name.  I kept my maiden name in parenthases in my email signature the whole time but most people won't know/remember that.

women and their decor

I am a very decorative 22 year old woman.  I live in a townhouse with my husband and I can't stand bare walls.  Everything needs to be neat.  Walls need to be filled with pictures or artwork.  Furniture needs to fill up the room tastefully, not overly crowded.  Are all women like this or am I just weird?

For the guys: does this bother you too or do you just not care about your living situation?

I just got a call from a Law Firm that is representing current and former employees of California Pizza Kitchen. There is apparently a class action suit against them due to violation of pay and breaks and shit like that (which is totally legit. We were never "allowed" breaks and if we worked overtime, we had to clock out for at least 10 minutes then clock back in to somehow not get the overtime pay. Total bullshit, I know).

Should I be apart of the class action and wait 4 years for my 20 dollar pay out or forget it?

Skins and nudity laws

I'm wondering what the laws are in regards to age and nudity/sexual representation on television in england. In particular the E4 channel where Skins is shown. In the seasons we've seen under 18 yearolds naked on their side, side boobs, and/or butts of under 18 yearold actors and actresses. In the US that would not be allowed. So I'm curious, what the laws are like in regards to "minors"(not sure what constitutes a minor in the UK) in the UK? As well are they different in scottland/ireland/wales than in england or they're all under UK laws in regards to television? Are there different laws for E4 in comparison to BBC?

The lights are on, but you’re not home

your heart sweats, your body shakes
another kiss is what it takes
You can’t sleep, you can’t eat
there’s no doubt, you’re in deep
your throat is tight, you can’t breathe
another kiss is all you need
Whoa, you like to think that you’re immune to the stuff, oh Yeah
it’s closer to the truth to say you can’t get enough,you know you’re gonna have to face it, you’re addicted to love

How can you tell if you're addicted to love?

You got those junkie shakes if you don't get your love every few hours
You're breaking into people's homes, stealing their tvs, which you pawn for cash so you can buy more love
Friends and family have had an intervention on your behalf because they're concerned you need to cut back on your love
You've said to strangers: "Gimme some love and I'll SUCK YOUR D*CK!"
Whitney Houston knows you by name
You've followed a complete stranger back to his house, then to his unlit basement just because he mentioned he had some love for you
You've started a 12 step program on curbing your addiction to love
You've said the words "It's not an addiction. I can quit anytime. I just like love, is all"
You've been in a situation more than a few times where you had to defend yourself against other 'love addicts' just because you were eying their love
I really don't know what the hell you're talking about. It's a Robert Palmer song about sex, isn't it?

" Forcing tax-payers to spend money to advertise that group in elementary school text books, and holding parades with music and clowns, can only be intended to confuse 10 year-olds to set them up for molestation at age 13 when the body starts to overtake fragile reason. Only children, not adults, are swayed by clowns. Responsible members of that interest group would agree, and have a duty to step forward and say so.

To make it worse, some judges have joined-in and actually ordered text books for children to include pictures of same-sex couples, and have even ordered adoption agencies to hand-over innocent children to them. What chance do those children have to grow up healty? What chance do yours? Those too young and innocent to know what life is about can, by one molestation, be emotionally crippled and denied the greatest joys of life, forever."

1. Were clowns created initially to molest children?
2. As an adult, have you ever been swayed by a clown?
3. Are parades just thinly-veiled events engineered to touch children inappropriately?
4. Can pictures of same-sex couples utterly ruin a child's chances of growing up healthy? Do gheys have so much power?
5. Are clowns and gay people responsible for most of the world's child molestations?
6. If so, are there more clowns than we think or are they working around the clock to meet their quota?
7. Is a gay clown 200% more likely to grope the young 'uns?
8. Would you vote for Mel to keep our children's privates away from the roving reaches of circuses and bathhouses?

Divulging employee information

A coworker and I were just talking about this today: when we put in a request for a vacation, our manager wants to know why specifically we want the vacation time, and then will tell the whole store.

For example, if we're going out of town for a wedding my manager will write "Out of town for a wedding" in the schedule for all the store to see as opposed to simply writing "on vacation" or "out of town". My coworker didn't feel comfortable having this information shared with the store.

Is it inappropriate for our manager to do this? If we specified that we didn't want all our coworkers to know why we were taking time off would we be justified in doing so?

1. I will be living alone soon with my son (who will be 2yrs) and my daughter (who is going to be born in June). And in a city I am still relatively new to... I am currently staying with my mom in Dallas, Georgia. My husband does not live with me and he's getting deployed in September. I have lived alone before in Houston. But my brother stayed with me and for some reason I just felt safer living in a place I grew up. Even though I lived in one of the most crime infested areas of Houston (Gulfton!!) I never had too many issues.

However now with two kids I am alot more terrified at the though. My mom will live close and might see me 2 times a week. But other than that I am going to be by myself. Is there anything I should do to help keep me and my family safe? Do those alarm systems work, and are they worth it?? Can you give me any advice on what I should do/or avoid??

2. What does the dixie/rebel flag stand for to you? (Or whatever its called..) I never saw this flag in Texas but ever since moving to Georgia I see this everywhere! On people's front lawns and on their cars.. I dont really know much about the flag to be honest. But I had several people tell me it was a sign of racism. Is this true? I ask beacuse after hearing that I did notice every single person showing this flag was white. And my soon to be neighbors had the flag flying in their front porch.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how to deal with this? It's late spring in my part of the world and my bedroom has a tendency to get hot and dry, could this have anything to do with it?

Going to Portland!

Hallo TQC!

In 12 days, I am leaving for Portland, Oregon. I've spent quite a bit of time there -- my husband is from Newberg -- but it's been awhile. I'm going to be reuniting with him there, and I have a hotel downtown.

So I know Portland fairly well, and have all the standard stuff on my to-do list (Pearl, Powell's, Saturday market, etc.) Can anyone offer some suggestions and reviews of really cool, unusual restaurants, or good nightclubs, or less-known touristy things, or under-appreciated shopping areas or stores, etc.? Any good events happening between May 29 and June 1? We'll have a car so while staying inside Portland is best, we're not opposed to heading out to the suburbs.

Also! I'm taking Amtrak there. I've never been on a train before. I'm pretty excited -- it's even cheaper than Greyhound is up here and with a dining car! What's Amtrak like to travel long-distance?


What are some stereotypes of your (or any other) *race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, etc* that you really hate?
What are some you think are funny/silly/harmless*?
What are some you wonder where the hell they came from?
What are some you kinda believe are true?

If you could erase from the world entirely just ONE stereotype, what would it be?
There's a catch, to erase that stereotype, you must create another that will become instantly popular, what is it?

*I know that no stereotype is harmless because there is always going to be some type of privilege or discrimination behind it. But ignore that for a second and let's just have some fun, mmkay?

DISCLAIMER: Stereotyping is bad. Don't do it. Except now b/c I'm asking you to.

The small college city I live in is having a city council meeting and will most likely vote on anti-discriminatory laws based on sexual orientation tonight. If it passes, we'd be the second city in Utah to have laws that protect the LGBT community.   I was asked by a couple people to go and support these ordinances.  Even though I strongly favor this, I didn't attend since it's an issue I get very emotional about. I'm watching this live on our community channel, and some of the opposing arguments are just ludicrous.

what would you do?

Anyone who's ever done auditions for theater: When the audition calls for 16 bars of a song, what do you sing -- just the first 16 bars/first verse of a song, any song as long as you can carry a tune on it, or would you go out of your way to sing the most difficult, challenging part of a song just to show you can hit the high notes? I'm helping someone prep for an audition right now and she wants to do the latter, but I'm thinking the former is more appropriate... however, I know nothing about theater. What would you do, TQC?

Who do you include in your references on your resume -- as in, what is their relation to you? Former employers, professors you worked extensively with, etc...? I teach music and I'm wondering if asking a few of my kids' parents who have seen me work if they would be a reference for me. Is that a faux pas?

Is it possible to cover up the smell of coffee brewing?  I hate the smell but we have a house guest who likes a cup before going to work.  I don't have the heart to ask him not to make it because the reason he's staying with us is he has no place to stay til the end of the month....he's in the middle of divorcing.  I've tried Googling but all I can find is ways to get coffee smells out of containers or how to use coffee to neutralize other odors.  Help?

Do any of you have Cricket? Do you like it?

Also, have any of you ever flashed your phone to a different service? How'd that go? How'd you do it?

Can anyone recommend a decent spa near St. Louis? Oh hell...I could/would probably even go as far as Chicago if it was worth it.

I've been stressed out lately and I think I want to take a mini vacation and go to a spa, but I've never been, so I'm totally clueless.

Links are a plus.
movie - I've got this

Which would be worse: having to give a speech to a group of over 100 people or having someone you know (who you are not interested in dating/having sex with and this person is not a doctor) see you naked?

Does the answer change if you wandered naked into your own surprise party?
hello lion-o

i am doing a project on first impressions

What are your first impressions of these 7 people based on their portraits alone? What sorts of words would you use to describe them? What sort of things do you think they do in their spare time?

(They know about the project but they will never see the feedback on the portraits. Feel free to say whatever you want... say something nice or mean or be politically incorrect if that is what you're feeling.)
