Tonight is a cool, unusually clear night. I live in outer ring suburbs and tonight, for the first time in years, I looked up and saw the dim glow of the milky way stretching through the sky. The last memory I have of being able to see it I was just a wee lad and gram's house.

Does seeing the Milky Way blow your mind like it does mine? If not, what does blow your mind, Question Club? What goes through your mind when you experience said mind-blowing?

I know your mileage may vary and every couple is different and yadda yadda, but in your quiet, mental opinion, how quick is "too quick" to be getting engaged?

(Brought to you by the girl at a frat party by my apartment complex's pool who was loudly proclaiming to her friends about how she and her boyfriend had known each other and been dating for two months and just knew they were perfect and so he proposed last night omg!)

Also, for shits and giggles: you're getting married, or you are already married, whichever. Do you think your partner or potential fiance/did your fiance ask your parent(s) for your hand? Do you think that's necessary in this day and age?

ETA: Does it matter if circumstances/finances/life mean that it's best if they get engaged sooner rather than later? Like if one of them is moving, someone graduates before someone else and moves away to graduate school, blah de blah.

Soo apparently I have one bitch of a virus on my computer. It's the Antimalware Doctor virus.

I have followed all these directions:

And after I restarted my computer, it came back. What am I supposed to do? I tried running and the other renamed files but now it tells me they're all infected and I can't run them. My computer won't give me the option to boot in safe mode.

Can someone help me, please?

Tomorrow I'll be cleaning my appartement thoroughly, for the first time in almost 2 months.
It's going to be a lot of extremely annoying work.

What should I do to reward myself afterwards, something that will provide enough motivation throughout the day?

does this sound good to you?

fyi. it tastes like heaven just came in my mouth.

So, you get to a massive party really late, there's less than an hour to spare before everyone gets kicked out. It's in a huge mansion. On one end are hookers. On the other is blow.
Do you choose hookers or blow? Why? (You will end up socializing and you won't have time for both.)

Mr. Pants Says

It Stinks Out Loud!!

I live about 200 feet from a communal Dumpster that is provided by the property owners for the control of garbage in our homes. Not a problem, usually, even in the summertime.

And then, a Stench moved in.

OMG, this is a Stench to end all Stenches. It smells like literal days-old death and pestilence. It is more than a "rotten summertime garbage" smell.

What could it be, TQCers? Did somebody dump a body? Have the poachers been at it again with dumping deer offal in the dumpster at night when nobody's looking? Should I call the sherriff's office and have them check it out?

What's the last thing to almost make you puke?

I just burped up this peanutbuttery-oniony foam in my mouth. The fact that it was foamy was what grossed me out.

I wonder how many "this post!" responses I'm going to get.

Serious type question now.

My mom wants me to start doing pot to help regulate my moods and help with chronic pain since it seems to do my dad some good, but it isn't legal here, medical or otherwise. I'm still on the hunt for a job, so I'm not going to until I find one I like, but would you smoke pot for mood swings/depression/chronic pain if it were readily (not necessarily legally) available to you?

ETA: Asthmatics, do/can you smoke pot? I have asthma and I don't know if I'd be able to anyway.

So, losing your virginity! I've got questions!

1. How old were you/how long were you with your partner (if you were)?
2. For the girls, did it hurt?
3. Were you scared? Have any doubts?
4. What kind of birth control did you use, if any?
5. Was it a disappointment or pretty nice?
6. Do you regret it?

I just subscribed to a bunch of magazines I used to read (Elle, Nylon, W, etc) and I remember that back in the day it used to take like 2 months for them to actually start and for me to get them. Is that still the case?

How soon can I expect them to start coming in?

one of my suite mates hates me because she likes someone i went out with <i>freshman</i> year. that was two years ago. i'm best friends with my roomie and my other suite mate, who is also very close to the girl who <strike>wishes i was dead</strike> dislikes me. i don't want anything stupid and dramatic to happen, but she's prone to voicing her opinion of me. i don't want to make things awkward for everyone else, either. has anyone been through something similar? any tips for diffusing the situation? i tried to befriend her over the summer but nothing worked... and we move in tomorrow and i am so anti-drama ;_;

Last night, in tinychat, I was told to teach my dogs to use the sandbox, and then the cats should be taught to use the toilet. I felt that the humans should also evolve in our poop receptacle variety. What kind of pot should I use to piss in?

Catapult. Lob my leavings into the next zip code
Space. Do my bizniz in a bucket and tie helium balloons to it and let my waste be carried to the heavens
I simply devolve and I'll be the one pooping on the street and picking up after myself with bags
Relieve myself down the neighbor's chimney, aided by neighbor's ladder

Purr your insistence, TQC, I have gone ahead and adopted a wee little kitty from that client at my work (see what I did there?).

Now the big question is...what should we name him?? We are very picky with names. We sort of wanted a classy old man name to go with our dog Elsie and had almost settled on Auggie before I felt weird announcing the arrival of August in the middle of August. BF just suggested Fischer, which I thought was really cute too. he an Auggie? A Fischer? Do you have better ideas?

If there was a TQC meet-up in your city, would you go?
How often do you feel lonely? What do you do to cope with that feeling?

1) I'm in Pittsburgh
2) Definitely :)
3) 2-3 times a week, usually the weekends are worse. Sometimes I try to make plans with people, but my friends are usually busy.

Strictly hypothetical.

Would you tell your SO if you cheated on them? Would your answer change if you were planning on breaking up with them?

If you had two very close friends and one had cheated on the other, would you tell? What if they were having an ongoing affair? Would your answer change if you knew the person your friend was sleeping with had an STD?

Even though October is a month away; I need a pile of horror movies so that when it does roll around - I'll be prepared.

Will you recommend me some?

Odd scenarios

Which is a worse situation to be in?

On a first date with somebody, you hit it off well but as you're saying goodbye, your date warns you that his/her ex is insane and violent and messes with all potential mates. On your way home, you notice you're being followed by a car
You've been dating this guy/girl for a month now and though you haven't slept together yet, you'd had some heavy makeout sessions. One day you're looking for a bandaid and open up their medicine cabinet and find herpes meds
You're driving to a bachelor/ette party in Vegas and you're driving through the Nevada desert in the wee hours of the morning alone when your battery dies. And you have no cell phone reception
You're camping out with friends and they all went hiking, while you decided to sleep in. You hear rustling around your camping area and when you peek outside you see a large bear sniffing around. It doesn't see you
After a night of drinking while at a bachelor/ette party in Vegas, you wake up in a strange hotel room next to a strange man/woman. Luckily it's the same hotel, but you know you had sex. A lot of sex. And your neck is covered in hickies
Your ex talks you into going to a baseball game (free tickets). While there, the jumbotron suddenly displays the sentence "(your name), will you marry me? with your ex's name at the bottom". The camera suddenly aims at your seats
On a boring lonely night, you end up masturbating to the internet. However, you didn't remember to turn off your videocam or log out of the full video chatroom you happen to be in
You take a dump and upon inspection, the toilet is full of blood. You had your period last week
You and a friend are drinking and decide to call a 1-900 number. You have a good hearty laugh and both end up passing out. In the morning you realize that you never hung up the phone and you've been acruing charges for the past 6 hours
While water skiing you happen to notice a shark fin in the water

My senior year of college starts tomorrow. Am I justified in lying in bed all day today, watching Bones streaming on Netflix and occasionally getting up to pee? Anyone care to join me? We can change the current program.

I am in the market for a new water bottle as my Nalgene is about dead. I'm somewhat interested in Vapur bottles, but I'm not sure that I'd like the top of it.

I'm interning at a wildlife rehabilitation center and all the interns are required to do a project that involves working with the public. Normally interns would fulfill this by taking in calls and working the front desk. The problem? I can't hear.

The coordinator is open to any ideas. I've thought about these ideas:
- Print out sign language cards, laminate them, and make a few packets to hang around the rehabiliation center. They'd be simple signs like bird, medicine, feed, clean, thank you, etc. I have a few interns who have learned/are learning basic signs, so this would be helpful.
- The coordinator also wants it known that it's a deaf-friendly place to come in and volunteer, but I'm not sure how to go about recruiting them without seeming so offensive. I don't want to single them out.

Any ideas?

1) Have you seen Michael Jackson's This Is It? If so, how was it?

2) Do any parks in your area have special events?

3) Have you ever taken a class at a local museum, library, etc?

1) I'm going to see it tonight, at the park, for free. I'm not a big MJ fan but it's free and something to do, with other people.
2) One shows movies every week and another has yoga, cardio, and concerts on the weekends.
3) I'm taking ceramics at an art musuem and thinking about taking something at the local conservatory.

Roomies are coming home from a week in France sometime today (and they got engaged during the trip!). It could be in five minutes, it could be in five hours, I have no clue. I want to do something special for them. Originally, I was gonna make them food, but I didn't want to make a bunch of food, then they get in late and it's all cold. :( So, TQC, what should I do for them as a quick "Welcome Back!" gesture?

Srs and nonsrs welcome :)

Question 2:
Dinner for me. Cold pizza or pasta with no sauce? Or a wheat bagel w/ cream cheese? Choose now!

Question 3:
Do you feel lame when you like a book/series only after seeing the movie?
Yes, this happened to me with Harry Potter (still haven't read the whole series yet though), Lord of the Rings, and Scott Pilgrim. I feel like a poser cause I didn't like it before it was cool. But perhaps I'm just being hipsterish about it all

iTunes Help!

Question(s) for those of you familiar with iTunes:

I bought 2 songs from an album, for $1.29 each. Now I want to "complete my album". The album normally sells for $7.99, but since I already bought 2 songs, it should be $5.41, right? The problem is, it's showing up as $6.70, and only one song is showing up as "purchased" (and no, I didn't buy the other song from the "single", I bought it from the album). So, how do I rectify this??? I don't want to pay an extra $1.29 if I don't have to! I already viewed my purchase history and clicked on "report a problem" but I'm not sure what that'll do.... Anyone ever have a similar problem? What did you do/did it get fixed?? And downloading it for free/illegally is not an option, thanks.

Have you ever baked anything with Splenda?  How did it turn out?  Did it have the artificial sweetener aftertaste or could you tell a difference?  

I have never subbed Splenda for sugar before but I'm having my family over for dinner tomorrow.  I'm making pulled pork and a peach cobbler.  If I want to avoid the pity party my diabetic Grandmother will throw if she can't eat the cobbler, then I have to bake it with Splenda.  But I am wary of it because I don't want to make a huge, foul tasting desert if only one person will eat it.  I'd skip it and opt for something else in that case.

I have grad school orientation on Tuesday. I was looking at the schedule and the lady who is in charge of determining residency status is going to be manning the info desk. I had a somewhat heated conversation w/ her last week because she refused to grant me in-state status- I did apologize via email and it wasn't like I cursed her out or anything but she was definitely annoyed (granted, she came off as a bitch from the start so I think that's kind of her default.)

ANYWAY if I have to talk to her should I acknowledge that we've spoken before?

Essay conundrum

I have a 1,500 word essay due the day after tomorrow, I have to work tomorrow and won't be able to work on it the day it's due. I've barely started it, I know the subject ok but am not hugely confident in my writing skills. I can skip this essay if I really want, we only need to hand in 3 out of four and this will be the third I've handed in in I can get it done.
So far I've gotten a pass and a credit for my other essays and might be able to get a distinction for this one. This course is a university prep course, how well I do in it will decide whether I can get into uni next year.

Should I work my butt off tonight and tomorrow to get it done to the best of my ability?
Should I finish it without stressing too much and hand it in even though I won't get as good a mark as I could have?
Should I skip this essay?

tqc, what are your dorm/roommate horror stories?

i personally have had pretty good luck with roommates minus one ultra-religious, ultra-conservative one that didn't last more than a few months. even then, the worst she did was blast sermons in our room and try to point me to religion now and then whenever i came back late, but otherwise left me alone most of the time.
i've had worse luck with sharing spaces with dorm neighbours like finding used tampons in the shower and other random places, shaved pubes all over the toilet seat, or poop in the middle of the hallway.
i find it hard to believe that all college girls are this lacking in hygiene, so idk if i just happened to end up with a group of 20 particularly disgusting people or if perhaps i'm missing something here.
