HALP. My computer is infected with some kind of virus, called "A*V*I* secu*rity su*ite". (minus the asterisks..) Can someone please google this for me and tell me how to fix it? If I try to search the virus name in any kind of search engine it blocks it (it wont even let me publish this post without using asterisks.) I've tried downloading malware removers but the virus keeps shutting them down.

Thankyouu

So my SO gave me a netbook, and it's running Mac Snow Leopard on it, and I'm too lazy to put Windows on it. I remember someone having an adorable little Mario Bros. themed dock set. Anyone know where I can download this, or a site that would have similar dock sets?

Okay, so I have to get up relatively early tomorrow (9 am) to make sure I'm packed for a flight at 8:30 pm. It's midnight thirty right now, and I'm really sleepy. Sleepy to the point of being too tired to find the effort to get up and get ready to go to sleep. So poll. What should I do?

flash photographs

so i hate flash photographs. i have a history of acne and bad skin so the flash just illuminates every spot on my face and makes it look all shiny so much so that it barely resembles my natural skin tone. i am lucky in that i have a fancy camera so i can take decent pictures with the flash off and i manage to look quite similar to what i look in real life. only other people have this pathalogical habit of using flash photography and i always look gross with a shiny face, red skin a couple shades darker than my neck. i don't currently use any makeup on my skin focusing instead on highlighting the eyes, but i'm seriously considering applying some to even out my skin for flash photographs.

any flash photography makeup tips and tricks?

Language Question Redux

I brought this up in very vague terms in this community months ago but now I have specifics so I decided to bring it back.

Here is the situation: I've decided to learn another language. I have narrowed it down to three useful (for me, at least) options. First is Spanish. I live in the southeastern US and it could be extremely valuable as a large portion of the population here speaks it and an environment for immersion is not far at all. It's also easier to learn than my other options. However, I have been exposed to Spanish for most of my life (even if I don't speak it) and have kind of grown weary of it. I have little cultural interest.

Second is Chinese (Mandarin). I have a ton of interest in this culture and language. However, it is among the hardest languages on the planet to learn and a good learning environment is an hour away from me. Plus, there are only a few Chinese here so I would have to relocate to make it more useful.

Finally, Hmong (White Hmong or possibly Green). This option has a closer learning environment, there are plenty of native speakers here, and I do have interest in the culture. But the door it opens is not nearly as beneficial as the one learning Spanish opens.

Chinese is my preferred option but it presents a bunch of obstacles.

Which of these languages should I learn?

I came to France with my friend to visit her family. We spent a week in Paris and then we took a train to Lyon. The original plan was to stay in Lyon for the rest of the summer with my friend's mother. However, I really want to see more of Europe (I really wanna see Italy), and since I'm already here I decided that instead of spending the rest of the summer in Lyon with her mother, I would like to go out and do a cheap tour or something. I'm trying to google tours that go from Lyon to Italy but so far I haven't really found anything. I have around $1,900 saved up in the bank for this trip.

Any suggestions? Do you know any tours or suggestions for where I should go or what I should see? This is my first time out of my home country (US) and I just don't know where to start. Thanks!

monetizing that little oil oops

1. So, BP continues to make money selling the oil they're collecting out of the Gulf, right? They're not collecting it to minimize the disaster but to make money, y/y?

2. I saw a newspaper article all about people boycotting BP filling stations because, you know, BP just destroyed the ocean, and all the local station owners were like "Oh, don't penalize US, we didn't do anything, it won't hurt BP at all if you don't buy their gas!" And then there was the usual comment string-- "you dumb liberals don't understand that all the oil companies are bad/Citgo is owned by Chavez/oil is good for the economy" and "you mean old conservatives don't understand that the ocean is sticky and everything in it is dying, so the economy is moot." Does it hurt BP at all if everyone quits buying their gas? Is it bad for the economy, and does anyone care if it is?

So a friend of mine recently got a position at a private behavioral services agency and told me lots of great things about it. I decided to send my resume as I have tons of experience in the field and figured it might be nice to change agencies (this agency is looking for full time employees and deems ft as 40+ while my agency deems ft at 30). I sent my resume. I just checked my sent email and realized the resume I'd sent was the same one I used for my grad school application. In it I said my current agency's training was "unsurpassed" do you think this looks insulting to this other agency? My wordage in this resume is very celebratory of my current employers (because experience was a huge deal for the grad program but ugh how bad does this look to a possible employer in the same field?). There's obviously nothing I can do about it now :/.

My mom has this upholstered chair that she wants to give to me when I move out in less than a month. It's a good, sturdy chair, but it has been sitting in our garage for years, and my mom has used it as a place to smoke during the winter (because I won't let her smoke in the house). Also there is a possibility our cat has peed on it at least once. As a result, it smells pretty funky, and it's just... dirty. Like, you touch it, and your hand comes away feeling grimy.

I'd like to use this chair. Like I said, it's sturdy, and also comfortable, but it is so gross. How do I clean an upholstered chair? Do I need to take it to a professional or is there some way I can get the smell/grime out myself? I've never had to give a piece of furniture such a deep clean before.

TQC, what do you think about posts like this that are starting to show up amongst your Facebook friends?

"So where are all the "Save the Gulf" concerts? Where are the T.V. Benefits with celebrities and musicians giving heart felt speeches on the poor fisherman, wildlife, beaches, loss of income and sabotaged gulf economy? I find it rather strange how these people (including our own government) are so quick to help Haiti and other countries...but sit on their butts for this one. Just the facts. Post if you agree!!"

Stupid...

What was the last incredibly stupid thing you did? I just called a store where I used to work to try and help a friend of mine out. Only thing is, I'm a manager now and I used to be a regular employee there, and when I called I got the store manager, who now suspects that something is going on, even though I tried to be nonchalant about it. I'm afraid that he'll have called my boss and when I go in later today I'll be in big trouble at work.

Did that stupid thing come back to bite you in the butt? Am I in for big trouble when I go in later today?

Do you have a family doctor or do you do walk ins?  Is your doctor female or male?

I don't have a family doc.. I live in a city where they're scarce and my old one in a different smaller city retired after I moved here.  I walk in but .. I need oneeeeee :( 


If you found your own doctor after moving or whatever.. how did you go about it?


My elbow hurts so I can't put a lot of pressure on it.. also my back is wonky and hurts after a while of sitting (work).  What kinda activities can I do to keep active and limber? 

I usually do yoga and run or bike.. I could prob bike but my back might bug me.  Running maybe not so much yet.  As for yoga I can't do anything where I'd have to bear weight on my arm.. so none of those downward dogs or planks :(

I have an afternoon to myself so I am going to go see a movie. Should I see Splice or Get Him To The Greek?

Edit: After texting my husband I decided on Splice, because he also wants to see Get Him To The Greek so we'll see that together later. He would hate Splice. Thanks for the thoughts!

Edit x2: This post may now contain SPOILERS on Splice!


Do you like seeing movies by yourself? I do cause I can spread out, get whatever candy I want, and no one tries to talk in the middle of the movie to me.

I was reading a novel and a description of a dress was:

"It was a strapless style with built-in bra cups, giving me an extra uplift. It had a seductive front leg split. It was made in a jet-black animal-print leather mixed with satin panels that shimmered as I moved. It was finished with a sexy lace back."

I thought "I don't care" and my eyes skipped straight to the next paragraph. Do you have a similar reaction to me, or do you actually like details about a character's clothes outside of "she wore a short black dress"?

Quintessential driving music

So, I'm gearing up to drive across four provinces to my new job, beginning on Thursday. I'm gonna be on the road for two days with two very-pissed-off cats in the front seat.

also there was a website about cats in glass boxes or jars that was floating around somewhere (it was fake... or i'm telling myself it was), anyone have a link? it's part of my genetically-modified-hello-kitty-cat-breed argument.

We've all been asked if we'd date someone who identified as homo/bi/pan/a sexual, right?

How would you feel about dating someone who (for the sake of this question) is bisexual, is "straight" in terms of the relationship s/he is in with you, but identifies more as "gay" despite your relationship?

I.e., you're a straight girl with a boyfriend who identifies as bi, but he identifies more as gay while dating you. He never actively pursues relationships outside of yours, and there are no other problems (physically, sexually, romantically, emotionally or otherwise) in your relationship -- he's 150% attracted to you, etc -- but your friends note that you're "pretty much dating a gay guy." How would you feel? Would his behavior bother you (not factoring in your friends' comments, obs)? Would you stay in the relationship? Would you ask your boyfriend to stop behaving that way? Would you want him too?

Do you know of any fun, laid-back places to take a day trip or maybe spend a night or two in NY/VT/NH?

My boy and I want to take a small trip for our anniversary, and we'd be leaving from Plattsburgh, NY (all the way up near the Canadian border). Unfortunately we haven't gotten enhanced licenses or passports yet, so anything above the border is out.

So far we were thinking Burlington, VT or Lake George, NY...we've just been to both so many times.

We're mostly interested in good restaurants and bars and entertainment that's not TOO outdoorsy, although we appreciate beautiful surroundings and might picnic or take leisurely walks or something.

My grandma was telling me about a girl who goes to their church, saying that they're having to deliver her baby today, though she's only 7 months along (she's been on bed rest for the past 4 weeks). My grandma says that it's common knowledge that a baby 7 months along has a better survival than 8 months along, and that doctors always say that. I tried googling, but idk how to search appropriately b/c I keep getting stupid Yahoo! Answers results. Granted, she's also 93 years old and it would be understandable if she was behind the time in the latest news in obstetrics.

So, TQC: why would a baby at 28 weeks have a better rate of survival than a baby at 32 weeks?

DK/DC: do you want babies one day? do you have a preference between adopting/birthin' your own? why?

Hello, TQC! Father's Day is coming up and I need your creative imaginations...

Every year, my employer holds a raffle for Father's Day buckets. Each department is given a bucket and they throw a bunch of stuff together in it. People then buy raffle tickets to win them for their fathers. We need help coming up with ideas because we are accountants and imagination is not our strongest point. Examples of past buckets: bbq/grill, fishing, cars/mechanic stuff, beer, sports.

What kind of bucket do you think my department should make? What should we put in it? Serious and non-serious answers! :)

Ffffffffuuuuuuuuu-

This is a stupid problem I wish I didn't have, but here goes.

Last week, due to a crazy mix up I don't have the patience to go into right now, my wallet ended up in the possession of someone I work with who is now in Houston. I live in Austin. When she realized she had my wallet, she called me, got my address, and told me she was going to put it in the mail as soon as she got off the phone with me. This was last Thursday.

I've already put my credit and debit cards on hold and everything, but it is important I get my wallet back before the weekend, because my boyfriend and I were planning on going to an Iron Maiden concert in San Antonio, and surprise surprise, our tickets were in my wallet. I just went and checked the mail and my wallet has not yet gotten here. I don't have her number with me (it's in my work junk and, because I work at a school and school ended last week, I don't think I can go get it till summer school starts next week), so I can't call her to make sure she sent it.

Am I right to be freaking out about this? How long should a small package take to get from Houston to Austin? If she sent it on Thursday, it should be here by now, right? Should I just cancel the tickets and see if there are any more available? I really don't want to miss this concert, but I'm afraid that, less than a week before the show, there won't be very many un-claimed seats.

I'm just trying not to be launched into a nervous breakdown by this. I'm afraid we won't be able to go to this concert we've been planning for months and its all my fault and arrg. I don't know how to fix this.

I'll be living in San Francisco, hopefully within walking distance of my work. I can take public transit here, even though I despise it with every fiber of my being. I basically want a car so that I can cart stuff around easier (my laundry, groceries, etc.), visit my friends (who live all over the city and in some places outside of the city where public transit doesn't exist), and most importantly, because I was violently attacked a few years ago and getting on the bus at night scares the shit out of me.

San Francisco also has businesses like Zip Car and City Car Share, where you can rent cars by the hour. Does anyone use a service like this regularly? It seems like it should cost less than buying and maintaining a car if I only use it a few times a month to run errands, right? (And I'll just deal with visiting my friends by...making them come visit me!)

So what say you, TQC?

Does anyone here have the Birth soundtrack by Alexandre Desplat? If so, I need to ask you a question about a very specific part of the soundtrack. I downloaded mine from the internet and there's something that I can't tell if it's supposed to be part of the soundtrack or not...so if you have the soundtrack, please let me know!

how do i get my life back after graduation?

i've moved back home with my parents after graduating from college a little more than a week ago. i don't have a job or an internship and am seriously broke. my friends are becoming a rarity and my room is now given to my baby sisters. i have been passing the days as if in a half-awake daze. it is painful getting up in the morning because i know i have a day full of emptiness ahead with nothing to look forward to.

advice please?. i'm trapped. how do i get out?!

 What is the most inappropriate thing someone has said to you? What about the most inappropriate, yet somehow funny thing someone has said?

A male dementia patient who has never been inappropriate ever rubbed my leg and asked if I, "Wanted his pu**y?" A very lol whut moment as I hurried out of the room.

For my prom, I can't afford a hairdresser so I'm doing my hair myself.
I want a 30's/40's inspired look such as....

...etc

My hair is about 20inches
I have my own curlers and non-heating rollers.

How should I do my hair? Any tips or know any websites with *helpful* info? If patient enough could you give a step by step?


Thanks :)

Do you ever see something IRL and go, "o damn, that reminds me of a TQC member!"?

Who was the last TQCer you thought of?
I'm watching some of S1 of True Blood and Jason just said "I wanna lick yer mind", ergo, I thought of sacreddiseases

No/DK/DC: Would you rather be stuck in 90°F (32.2° C/ weather with 95% humidity, or in 122°F (50°C) weather, with humidity being less than 20% every day? IDGAF if you like the cold, it no longer exists in this question!

Hello people,

My local movie store has this "7 movies for 7 days for 5 dollars" deal. They can't be new releases (like, made in the last year or so), but I wanted to check some out. The problem is I had an awful time picking movies. I always seem to choose ones that suck.

Anyone have any suggestions for what I should rent?

I'm up for anything, humor, romance, horror; all I ask is no extreme gore, or movies with anything like rape.

one of my childhood friends just posted this on my facebook wall:

"Do you remember that time when we were younger you came with me to that party of my mom's friend and we were the only white people?"

wtf am i supposed to even say to that?

Thanks for all the suggestions about where my bf and I should celebrate our anniversary.

We're going to The Finger Lakes Wine Festival!

I know mariposa2384 posted a road trip playlist question way down the page, and I'll definitely be keeping an eye on that post, BUT...

What would be on YOUR road trip playlist, particularly relating to being young, in love and loving life? Not necessarily sappy love, just happy and free and mellow (although mellow's negotiable. I'm sure we'll wanna dance around in the car a bit, too!).

DK/DC: What's on your FAVORITE playlist?

1. Do you like MoonPies?

2. Have you heard of people celebrating something called birthmonths? My Facebook is getting spammed at least four times a day by one person who keeps talking about doing activities every day for their birthmonth.

(No, they are not turning 18 or 21. They are about 35 years old.)

3. Do you celebrate your birthmonth?

4. I applied for a few different teaching positions at a school (4th grade, 5th grade, English) and am being called in for an interview for a math and science position. Aside from what I learned in school, I don't have experience in either subject. I told them this one the phone but they said to come anyway. Why are they calling me in? Is this a trick?

5. Would you post your username here so TQC can reply with an image they associate with you?

Which would you prefer?

Boy/girlfriend lives one hour away by car and you see him/her once a week for a day/night.

Boy/girlfriend lives 400 miles away, but stays for 2 weeks every month.

Assume you love this person and enjoy spending time with them.

stuff your mom says

Inspired by kurenaiairen: what are some things your mom said all the time when you were a kid?

My mom:
"If you don't like it, you can lump it."
"You're not gonna melt." (If you try to get a ride somewhere when it's raining)
"We'll make it fit: we'll swear at it." (What you say when your suitcase won't shut/you can't get the car trunk to close.)
"There's always soup, there's always eggs, there's always grilled cheese." (When you're hungry and somehow can't locate a snack)
"Let's do something, even if it's wrong."

Love and lust Dr. Eljay, I need you now.

I've been texting/flirting with a ~*hottie*~ for a couple days.  I've been hinting at hooking up ("I'm bored; I'm lonely; I'm craving human interaction, etc.") but either it's me, or he can't take the hint.  This is a guy who gets turned on by a brick wall and I'm more attractive than his ex (and younger).  WTF is going on here?

The question:  My roommate almost texted this guy and said, "Just take Em from behind already," but doesn't have his number.  Should I give my roomie his number (they go pretty far back but his new phone lost his contacts) and let him send the text, or not?

The complication:  This guy, who I have known casually for three years, is also technically my boss.

What do I do?  All I want is some p33n.

ETA:  Here's the thing.  I work at a movie theatre as a manager and he is two management levels above me but not my GM, so decisions affecting my fate as a manager etc. aren't his problem.  His boss powers extend to telling me to do cash, inventory, or projection and I shouldn't (don't) argue with him.

However, neither of us is all over the rule book and I'm all in favor of the DL.  Plus, there's nothing in there about FWBs.  He hit on me before we worked together and we've always had some sort of tension.

a boring quest

if you were going on holiday abroad for three weeks (over christmas if that matters) would you take your laptop? the holiday would include visiting four countries on at least four planes very long distance (like round the world).

tell me also why or why not. please and thank you and goodnight.

Were there ever any updates on the poster who was getting harrassed with creepy phonecalls while her partner was serving overseas? The phonecalls that played the old song every four minutes...

DK/DC: What animals/fish/insects/etc. are you afraid of? I'm afraid of pretty much all sea creatures, insects, spiders; most birds; and dogs.

alternatively, what is the most played song (or artist) on your itunes, last.fm, whatever?
