Can you share some of those weird names with TQC? Oh, just do it! =)
Mine will be in comments.
i get a lot of insults, that's a given due to a lot of my behavior on forums.
however the last one kind of stuck a chord..
a person basically said,
"it's a shame you waste so much time antagonizing people on the internet, you're a really smart person,
you should be putting your mental faculties to good use finding a cure for cancer or something"
i maintain my life is mine to waste how i see fit.
and what if putting my faculties to good use meant i had to hole up in some lab for 30-some-odd years to find that cure.. should a person be more concerned with the benefit of society as a whole over their often meaningless enjoyment of their own lives?
what does tqc think?
Ummm there was just an earthquake here. It wasn't huge but my whole house shook and there was this roaring noise for like 15 seconds. Having grown up here, shit like that noes not usually even register with me. It was initially like a big truck driving by. Then it got louder and shakier and I went from my subconscious registering "big truck" to consciously going "Hang on... no truck has ever done anything like THIS and besides they reinforced the street about 10 years ago so trucks and buses don't do this AT ALL anymore pretty much... oh fuck, am I about to die sitting on the john? Because that would suck." And then I laughed, because I think of myself as being the last person in the world who is likely to die on a toilet.
TQC, will you please post some random cute/funny shit to help me get over my initial "oh fuck they've finally nuked us" reaction, and ensuing "WHAT THE FUCK, EARTHQUAKES ARE ACTUALLY SCARY" reaction? o.o
Have you ever been in an earthquake? Or some other natural disaster? Will you tell the class about it?
EDIT: News finally coming in, says it was a 3.5 or 3.7 magnitude... if that means anything to anyone...
Are there any TV shows that are still running that surprises you?
ETA: Do you prefer crunchy or smooth peanut butter? What kind of jelly/jam do you like?
I do fine with family and cousins ranging from newborn to 13 years of age, and would probably be fine with a set of my own in the very far future.
But I am watching three kids this summer and I'm about ready to set myself on fire to get away from them. I feel horrible for saying it, but it's true.
edited to fix grammar.

For how long?
How did your LDR end?
Should I have put AN LDR instead of A LDR?

Brought to you by Deborah from Dexter having a serious panic attack and thinking about Sookie crying on True Blood last week.

I have a friend who keeps one of those period calendar apps on his iphone and records all the lady friends he knows, and avoids them when it tells him they're on it.

Tell me your horror stories! I have to go work a health fair this afternoon.
Don't know/Don't care: what is the worst film you've ever seen? Why?
I saw it last night and OMG IT WAS INCREDIBLE.
What was the last great movie you saw?
Does such an app exist, and if so, where can I find it? I have some blocking to do.
Background: My BFF is the only stylist at her salon (weird, I know) and works six days a week for most of the day. Plus her family life is messed up so she usually has obligations there. Because of this we rarely see each other and don't get to do fun things with each other often. This week however, she is blessed with a vacation for several days and she is using it to the full to do a bunch of things she has wanted to do.
One of these things is going to a city nearby and spending the day window shopping and actual shopping. And by the day I mean the WHOLE day. She plans to be there before 9am (freaking early bird) and not come back home until probably after 12am.
Here's the conflict. I have chronic fatigue syndrome with fibromyalgia symptoms. I will try to keep up with her but I know for a fact that I will not make it the whole day. And sitting at a cafe (as she suggested) is not going to cut it. At some point, I'll need to lay down for an hour or two or I will pass out and have to spend half the next week in bed. But this is her (very deserved) vacation and I don't want to ruin it for her and she really wants me there. /background
Should I go and risk it for her or should I beg off and stay home?

No sooner did I sit down to eat lunch at Hoss' Steak & Sea than an older, silver-bearded gentleman with glasses, probably in his late 60s, comes up to me to comment that I look familiar and that perhaps he'd seen me through some local political affiliation or at the farmers market.
1. For example, when talking about books you ask what the other person is currently reading. He/she responds with a book you've never heard of, but is raving all about it, and has already given you a quick summary and review. They don't reciprocate the question. What next?
2. This isn't a how-to question, this is a what-would-YOU-say question.
3. This spans over any topic. Politics, entertainment, religion, whatever. They start talking about something you don't know or care about. What next?
How did you dress as a little kid? Did your parents insist you dress a certain way or were you free to dress as you pleased?
Thnk u fr ur time.
We've talked to the parents and even called the cops on them but all we ever hear is that we have no proof that the kids are the ones that cracked our window or that they're shooting bbs or anything so there's nothing we can do.
Technically fireworks are illegal here so I try to call the non-emergency police every time they're setting them off but by the time the cops actually show up, the kids have stopped.
How should I handle them? Srs, non-srs, all answers welcome.
tl;dr - stupid kids that live behind me try to hurt my dog, disturb the peace, and damage my property. The cops are useless. How should I

I overthink the stupidest shit, I know.
The thing is, he drives like a fucking lunatic. He texts, plays around with his iPod, and speeds all the time. I don't drive with him if I can help it. His car was really nice though, and I don't know how he is going to get to school (he is going full time for air traffic control and has classes/flight lessons every day of the week, and works weekends mostly at the same place I do).
He says it was someone else's fault for pulling out in front of him. I can't help but be super skeptical about this.
He is on his way home now; my mother is picking him up. I really don't know how to act about this. On one hand, I'm grateful he is ok and not injured, but fuck, I've told him repeatedly not to drive stupidly. And I can't help but think that if he had been paying attention, instead of likely texting or fooling around, he would have seen the person pull out in front of him. I can't count the number of times I've had someone pull out in front of me and none have resulted in an accident. I'm not saying that it doesn't happen, because it obviously does, but with his driving record....ugh. I mean, I'm hoping the insurance company holds her liable, but he won't be able to get a car as nice as the one he has now with whatever money he does get, and it won't solve the transportation issues in the next couple of weeks.
If this was your brother, what would you say/do when he gets home? Would you let him borrow your car? I'm pretty sure he is going to ask me and honestly, my gut reaction is that there is no way in hell I'd let him drive my car. Ever. Am I being an insensitive big sister about this? I totaled a car when I was 19, but I wasn't speeding and just hit a very wet patch on the road and spun out. The fact that he has done this now twice in two years bothers me a lot.
tl;dr: brother just wrecked another car, should I let him borrow mine if he asks? Am I a bad big sister for not wanting to let him borrow it?
if you don't have one - an interesting picture?
a hard-backed suitcase that is too big for how much stuff i need
a floppy duffel bag that is also too big for how much stuff i need
additional twists and turns: i need to get to laguardia airport in new york and am too cheap to take a cab so while the duffel bag is easier to get TO the airport (carry on shoulders or hug it while coping with bus and subway stairs), the suitcase seems easier to deal with once I get to the airport. Both will be equally convenient for the actual vacation part.
Which one should I take?
oh, and springing for a cab is not an option i will accept.
Let's say a parent gifts a kid a bass guitar (we'll say about $120), but rarely plays it. Several times over the years, the parents mention wanting to sell it, but the kid still wants to keep the guitar. Say, about 6 years after getting the guitar, the now-teenager leaves the country for a few years but, due to space (taking the bass guitar on an airplane, i mean), the kid doesn't take the bass with them. Since the guitar is doomed to just sitting around collecting dust in the teenager/young adult's room for about 4 years until the kid gets back, the parents sell it and keep the money even though the teenager/young adult never gave any indication of wanting to sell the guitar, but actually the opposite. Now the question:
Were the parents within their right to do this because they paid for the guitar? Or were they not because, even though they paid for it, they gave it to their kid as a gift, and so technically it belonged to the kid to do with as they please?
Personally, i'm not really sure. I kinda think it's up to the parents, but at the same time no way would i say that something i give to a friend still belongs to me since i paid for it, regardless of how much they use whatever i give them, so for that reason i'm kind of on the kid's side.

So.... I met a cute guy. It seems he likes me back. I am excited but... I have a question.
One of the reasons why I jumped into my last relationship was that I was too excited. This time I want to be more careful, take things slowly, be playful but not too daring. I am normally too daring. I am one to not be afraid to ask people out and tell them I like them. This might be cool sometimes but it can also backfire.
Do you have any tips for taking things slowly and being careful at the very 1st stages of getting to know someone without losing all the fun?
BTW, Photo of the cute guy (he's the third from the left):

The corndogs bake at 375 for 12-14 minutes.
The french fries bake at 425 for 14-24 minutes.
The tator tots bake at 450 for 18-22 minutes.
How would you do this? I'm going for 425 minutes for 12 minutes, then taking the corn dogs out but really I don't know...
How soon is too soon?

Do you think your room/[insert preferred gender]-cave/the place you do most of your hangin' out reflects your personality, or is it more like just a place, y'know, with some stuff in, whatever, it's convenient?

I did a stint today. I reported at 1:00 pm, watched a video all about jury duty, waited around, and was dismissed at 4:00 pm without being called to a courtroom. I collected a $15.00 check for "expenses" and won't have to worry about more Jury Duty for at least 3 years.
They had wifi in the jury lounge and I brought a laptop, but -quelles horreurs!- livejournal was blocked.
Will you suggest music for me to download for us to listen to on the road?

I work on a fishing vessel in Alaska during the summer and the company closed fishing for a week. Now I actually have time to do something in town, and I really want to get certified, but I only have until Tuesday, or maybe Wednesday. Now I'm wondering if I'd be able to get certified within this time. I've already emailed a scuba diving business about it to see, but I'm too curious to wait and want to hear what it's normally like for others.
no bug bites or skin allergies, btw.
How the hell do you choose a good tattoo artist?
Do you know of any good ones in New York?
Anyway, one of my family members annoyed me ALOT today and I am not entirely sure why.
But do you deal with someone who annoys you on a regular basis?
Do you love someone that annoys you and/or other people?
How do you deal with them?
And in case those questions were stupid or whatever...

If so, why do you think it is?

Do you enjoy music without vocals?

Is it possible for a person to go through years of a pretty severe mental disorder and come out a completely different person than they were before they fell ill - like they died and were reborn as someone else? Do you know anyone like this?
Now, 5 days later, after stating they'd want to hang out again sometime, they come over again tonight. They confess that they have a significant other.
How do you react?
What do you say in response?
Now let's get crazy and say you actually like this person and want to win them over and somehow make them want you more than their current s/o. What do you do/say?
What kind of phone do you have/want?
Two of my dogs are pretty smart, one is just a little dumb and my puppy is really stupid, but super sweet.
how do you react if people tell you your taste in music is bad?
personally, I find it odd how some people can say that another person's taste in music is bad.
In an update to this post, there was nothing wrong with the car and I pick it up on Sunday! They're taking my current car too and I'm going to be sad to see it go, but I'm so excited for my Peugeot 308! Since I am in full on obsessive car mode, I have questions about your vehicles:
- What was your first car? How long did you have it? Did you name it? Picatures?
- How many cars/vehicles have you had? What colours were they? How old are you?
- What is your dream car?
- Do you drive manual?
I always wanted a 206, which I bought as soon as I passed my test and for ages I've been wanting a 308, which is what I'm getting now! They're both blue, so I've decided I'll be driving blue cars all my life =]
dont you think it is fucking amazing?
have you played red dead redemption?

Should I buy the Canon brand ($117), possibly plastic aftermarket Adorama Flashpoint brand ($60) or the supposedly metal & "molded-from-the-original" aftermarket High-Performance PRO brand ($60)??
I can't find any seemingly legit reviews on the High-Pro brand, but I have to have this thing in my hands, at reasonable cost, next Friday morning before I leave for Maine. Thoughts?
what are some weird things you like to eat?
i like jalapeno juice in my chicken noodle soup and i love raspberry jam, jalapenos and cream cheese sandwiches.
