-not necessarily limited to suspense, mystery and murder
-need more substance than the likes of James Patterson and like novels
-last few books I read and liked: The Almost Moon (Alice Sebold), Crazy Ladies (Michael Lee West), The Dead Room (Robert Ellis), The Third Twin (Ken Follet), The Ruins (Scott Smith)

So I had car issues the other day. It resulted in my boyfriend having a really bad burn from coolant on his arm. This happened Saturday. He's been blistering and I'm just trying to ease the pain and help the healing process anyway I can. We rinsed it and put emergency burn gel on it and we don't know what else to do do ease the pain. It seems like a second degree burn but the skin turned grey, which makes me think it's third. I'm not entirely sure.
We did not go to the ER due to financial/insurance costs. Pictures under a cut. Any advice on what to do to ease the pain and swelling during the healing process?

How do you feel about text messages or instant messages that tell the sender when they've been read? Do you expect instant responses to your msgs? I'll go ahead and tell everyone that I reserve the right at all times to read something then reply later, for any reason I please, and this particular kind of entitlement infuriates me.

I have to make a pitch for an 11-week documentary for my team to do in class this week (university). My original plan may not work out due to permissions (it's a documentary on children in language immersion programs at a very young age).

So QC, what should be the topic of my proposed documentary if that doesn't work out?

Topic is not limited as long as it is not dealing with violence or drugs. Not only as a person and filmmaker, but as a student, I am trying to keep off those topics since they've been done a lot.

FF is going to bed, so she may reply back a little late. Apologies in advance.

I want to learn how to program (preferably starting with javascript, maybe picking up perl and/or php... some basic css and xml-based stuff like xslt-2 wouldn't hurt either). I'm not a college student and I don't learn well with book based self study. I've tried looking at continuing education at local colleges but all their computer courses are like "Intro to MS Word" and not what I need. Should I apply at a local community college when I have no interest or desire in their degree plans? Are there other non-college and non-"read a book" resources?

Since we have a few womens studies peeps here..

Does anyone know of any writings (books, journal articles, etc) that delve into the fact that all cultures and traditional religions view women as subordinate (edit: or rather, place women in a subordinate role, even if it's justified in a 'nice' way such as women being sacred)? All the feminism discourse I've read tends to be very culture-specific but I feel like a pretty key issue is being missed in not considering it from a metacultural perspective. I am pretty sure I'm not the first person to think about this but I haven't had much luck finding anything.

Specifically something reasonably academic that has references. I'll read someone's anecdata-driven opinion piece out of interest, but that's not so much what I'm after.

Edit: If you disagree with this claim I am also really, really interested in anything verifiable that contradicts it. This is what I've learnt from my cross-cultural studies at University; the concept is widely expressed in a range of materials I've read and I've to date not found anything to contradict it. I'm studying cross-cultural communication rather than a subject that has a specific gender focus so I'm conscious that it's of limited depth on the matter.

But it can't credibly be denied that this is certainly the case for the vast majority of cultures and religions, even ones that are very different geographically and historically. There's a pattern there that goes beyond the individual cultures and I think that's important.

1. Would you be annoyed if you saw that your significant other "liked" a photo of someone else other than you in a swimsuit? To be more descriptive, this photo is a full-body "glamour" shot self-portrait taken through their own reflection on a mirror. And then in another photo in the same album, you see a close up shot of the face of the same person, and see that your SO commented: "Outstanding photo. Love the expression in your eyes."

Or would you not give a damn if you knew you were more attractive than this person?

2. Would calling in sick to work on the Friday of Halloween weekend raise skepticism?

I applied for this health assistance thing through my local hospital, and got a letter in the mail today asking me to send in copies of my 3 most recent months of bank statements. I already proved income with an equal amount of paystubs, as well as two years worth of tax papers. Are they looking at my spending habits or something else? What if I had something super embarrassing on my statement like "****SEXTOYEXTRAVAGANZA.COM ..... $120.00" or something? (I don't, but for arguements sake, let's say I do.)

Poll #1631085 Question for the ladies and gay fellers

You're on a first date. The guy seems nice and interesting enough and you have a couple things in common. Which of the following things could you overlook and would agree to a second date? Any option you leave blank you see as a 'dealbreaker' that would result in you not wanting to see him again

Receives and texts back 5 times during the meal
Insists on treating, as he picks up the bill. He pays with cash. You notice that he only leaves $2 on a $45 bill. 'More than enough. It isn't like he was performing rocket science'
Brings up his ex 3 times during dinner, each time with an angry tone and punctuates each segue with 'that bitch'
Manages to mention 'Jesus' 18 times during your meal
Farts in front of you as you both exit the car "Oh, that's because I feel comfortable around you, and plus I hate holding them in"
Admits he's vegan, and then tells you that he won't tolerate you ordering any food that 'offends' him
You're not sure but you feel he may have been flirting with the waitress/waiter. You feel it's your imagination but he did seem more animated talking to him/her
Reveals that he has a daughter, age 4. He never mentioned her before because he wasn't sure how you'd feel, but he's all she has in this world
While reaching for the breadsticks, his wrist extends past his coat sleeve. You see what looks like self-inflicted slash marks. He may be a cutter
Has a great accent, one that you find attractive. He mentions during dinner that his Green Card is expiring, then casually asks if you'd ever marry to help keep someone in the country. You both laugh but it makes you wonder
Excuses himself to go to the bathroom and comes back sniffling and seems more hyper. This happens 3 times during the meal
Currently unemployed, but looking
Brings up, out of the blue, that he hasn't gotten laid in 4 years, and then asks you if he seems desperate or needy or anything
Doesn't have a car
Insists on paying for the meal. Tries to pay for meal with food stamps. When the waiter refuses to take them, your date raises his voice and makes a scene. He finally pays the bill and then mentions something about being short on rent now

Two of the 6 people who live in our house drive everyone else to uni most days. We've just started asking for 50p each (which is way cheaper than the bus and barely covers petrol and parking) to cover costs. Our only male housemate (who is generally thoughtless and lazy) continually expects lifts and will sulk if he doesn't get one, is angry about having to contribute and constantly makes us late.
This morning he wasn't even up at the time that we usually leave and took 10 minutes just to put clothes on. He then got angry when I told him it was rude not to be on time, and insisted we would be there anyway. I said that was not the point, I had asked him to be ready by 8:30. When we got to uni he stormed off.

Tl;dr, my housemate who is lazy anyway keeps making us late for uni, doesn't like to contribute to petrol and expects to be given a lift.

Should I just leave this morning's situation and get over it or point out that I won't be giving him lifts any more if this continues?

On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being "I live on Sesame Street" and 10 being "I'm afraid to step outside my door after dark", how dangerous is your city? And not just murders, but non-violent crime too. 

I passed the scene what I can only guess is a murder (like three police cars and four ambulances, and hysterical people outside) on the way home from school today. It would be the fourth reported homicide this month. Just last night someone on the news read a comment from the TV station's website, saying that they are "scared to live here anymore". All of this is really starting to freak me out.

Do you have any existing stereotypes about people with unnaturally-colored-dyed hair? What are they? What sort of stereotypes have you dealt with in terms of your appearance?

I'm just wondering about this in terms of very general discussion on stereotypes and image. I have orange hair and am sometimes surprised at how some people respond to it. Some people assume I do it for attention (a lot of people cannot fathom any other reasons for having dyed hair) some people think it means that I'm dangerous or something (it seems to honestly scare some people, and I'm astounded at the idea of these peoples' mind sets). But then there's some people (usually middle-age to older people) that love the orange and are really enthusiastic about it.

Dear TQC,

I am interested in finding a second job. I have pink hair and a facial piercing, and finding a second job is not so important that I am interested in changing my hair or taking out my piercing. What do you guys think would be the best course of action?

A.) Find out place's dress codes prior to applying, and only apply at places whose dress codes do not mention unnatural hair/piercings, or explicitly say it's OK.

C.) Not research dress codes, and just alert the people hiring at the time of the "Would you please come in for an interview" phone call that I have unnatural hair, and ask if that goes against their dress code (and if so, say "thanks but no thanks.")

B.) Apply everywhere I'm interested and not research dress codes, and assume the associates/receptionists taking my application will note my hair. And in cases where resumes are e-mailed/faxed/mailed, just show up to interviews without any warning.

My boyfriends dad rescued 3 cats from a trailer park that were either feral or their previous owners left them behind when they moved. The plan was to trap,spay/neuter & then release them back into the trailer park or to find the more social ones good homes. We think one of the cats is pregnant. Her tummy seems swollen and the nipples seems larger than normal and when you touch her stomach it just feels like something is in there. Shes the most social of the bunch and the one that me and my boyfriend have fallen in love with. We want to keep her but we've never had a cat before let alone kittens. What the hell do we do? The other cats have an appointment on Friday at aspca to get spayed/neutered should we bring her along as well and see what they have to say? We love this little cat and I just want to make sure that we do everything we can to make sure her and her kittens are healthy.

Poll #1631159 Sarah Conner?

You're at a club. You happen to be sitting at a table, alone, when a large musclebound guy in a trenchcoat walks over to you. As you look up at him, he pulls out a gun and the laser targeting dot appars on your forehead. It looks like it's the end. Suddenly, before he can pull the trigger, some blonde guy in a trenchcoat unloads on him several times with a shotgun. The large fellow lies in a pile of broken glass. People are running and screaming. The blonde man quickly hops over to you. He kind of stinks like a homeless person. He says "Come with me if you want to live". Do you go with him?

Twice this week, I have had people come into my place of workness, ask if we were hiring and when I said no, ask if they could have my name so they could tell the unemployment office who they had asked. Today, the woman was much more straight forward - she said she knew we weren't hiring but needed to tell the unemployment office she had been looking for a job, so could she please have my name and the phone number of the place I worked.

Is this shady? I know times is rough and tough like leather, but are they really so tough you can't actually get an application at a place that's actually hiring? Why does this make me feel so paranoid?!

Sorry if this is long. I need some college advice!

I just moved to college 2 months ago as a freshman and I have been having trouble adjusting.
The worst is this huge fear I've developed of eating alone in public. I even have trouble ordering food and taking it back to my room if I am alone. I have been skipping meals every now and then because my roommate isn't available and I'm too scared to go to the dining hall alone. I realize how stupid of a fear it is, but I am actually scared of people judging what I choose to eat or the fact that I am alone and I'm not sure how to break this fear.

Is this normal for new college students? Or is this some kind of social phobia developing?
Do you have any advice or should I just face my fears and force myself to go alone?

A retailer offers women's clothing from size XS to size XXXL (or size 0 to size 24, for pants). The shop prices all of their shirts and pants the same for sizes XS-L and 0-12 at the same amount, but tacks on an extra $3 for XL, $5 for XXL, et cetera. The retailer justifies this policy by explaining that they incur a higher cost for manufacturing the larger sizes because the clothing uses more material and the demand for larger sizes is less, therefore making larger sizes harder to sell.

Is the retailer's policy discriminatory towards consumers who wear larger sizes?
