So, TQC.
It's 22 minutes into my 27th birthday (CST).
Will you post cute animal pictures for me to make me happy and to get my mind off the fact that I managed to drop my cell phone into a cup of soda?

Why do so many TQCers dislike Los Angeles?

I have a high fever and some weird facial skin rash. Should I go to class tomorrow? I feel crappy about missing today's lectures, which were really fucking important. Tomorrow I have a stupid quiz and my teacher takes attendance (I've already missed 3 classes). If you miss more than 3 you get a lot of points off your grade.

Why do some professors feel the need to take attendance? If you do well in the class, why should it matter if you come to every class or not? Meh, this is a stupid question but I'm irritated right now.

What did you do today? I spent the last 4 hours watching a longass documentary about the Kievan Rus.

will you please tell me about a really vivid memory you have of early childhood, that really wasn't significant in any way and you're not sure why you remember it so well?

for example, in the 2nd grade we were learning to read clocks, and one day my teacher asked "does everyone know what time it is?" and just about every single student shouted back at her "TOOL TIME!" we laughed for hours. i remember this like it was yesterday.

FACEBOOK QUESTION OH NO

I want to show people a video from the dance performance I was in this weekend. A girl from the dance club uploaded it to Facebook, and I tried to share it on my own wall, but only some people can see it. I asked the girl who uploaded and she says her privacy settings are so that everybody can see her videos, and so are my own settings. But when my friends go to look for the video that I've now shared twice, the posts aren't there at all. I tried getting the url directly for the video, but it tells my friends that it's been deleted, which it hasn't. And I'm not the only one who's having the same problem with this video so it can't just be Facebook hates me. WHY CAN'T THEY WATCH MY AWESOME THRILLER PERFORMANCE? >:(

What's frustrating you? This is an angry eyebrows post.

How do I figure out what this song is that's stuck in my head? I don't know the title or artist or any of the lyrics or where I heard it. But it was probably on the radio. Would those programs that recognize songs be able to know what it is from me humming the tune? Is there a better way?


EDIT FOR SOUND
My mom is sleeping so I had to kind of whisper it, but maybe you can get the general idea?

Yesterday in my Health Careers class, my teacher made an announcement about how it was voting day, and how she should all vote. I didn't mind.

It did however, bug me when she began to tell us what we should vote for. She was endorsing that we vote 'no' to a campaign that she felt would take away state-funded jobs, such as the ones we are studying to go into it. So it did have relevance in the class. However, I felt it was wrong for her to tell us exactly what to vote.

Is it even legal for her to tell us what to vote?

I tried to Google it, but the only situations I could find are when the teacher endorses a specific presidential candidate.

Okay. So, you're new to work. Like...any kind of work. You're trained on a computer and go through minimal physical training. They stick you in an eight-hour closing shift for your first week and there's no way you can physically keep up with everything that needs to be done. They are unable to switch you shifts or give you less hours. Do you quit?

How do you get over rational fears?

A whole bunch of bars in the area that I work in have been violently robbed recently. There are cameras everywhere in my bar (I don't think there are in the ones that were robbed, but I can't be sure - I spend all my work time in bars, I don't really go to them for fun) but that doesn't calm my nerves very much. I'm absolutely terrified of going into work and being there alone (which happens on weeknights at 1am - not very big drinking times) and being robbed. Like, shaking with fear and getting an upset stomach whenever I think about it level of terrified.

ETAThere was a customer in the bar at the most recent, so having a friend come in isn't something I'm willing to do. If I'm going to be beaten up for being a bartender, I don't want to invite a friend along to be beaten up for being a bar patron

How should I cope with it?

Say your family is a bunch of meth heroin and other various opiate addicts and you've moved 300 miles away from them and they don't understand why and are begging you to come home for the hoildays but you know if you do you're going to be stuck listening to all their self induced problems and taking care of their children while they continue to do various self harming activities, what do you do? What if you feel bad for telling them all to fuck off, even though you know its best for you.


Edit: What if you know for atleast the little time you're home the children are in safe hands, does that make a difference?

I'm having an issue with my laptop. Specifically, the internet connection when it's on battery power. If I simply unplug the computer, it has a heart attack attack and won't detect any wireless signals. If I restart it, regardless of whether I plug it back in, it'll connect happily. If I put it into standby mode before unplugging it, and then turn it back on after I unplug it, there's a fifty-fifty chance whether it will connect happily; or if it will detect the signal, go 'connecting... connecting... connecting...' for five minutes before deciding it really can't find the wireless signal, at which point I have to restart it. Oh, and after it's connected it will only stay connected until the battery power is about half drained, and then it craps out again.

WTF is wrong with my computer? Will buying a new battery help, or is my computer just a jerk? My bf seems to think it's an issue with the power settings, but I've been all over those and changed everything and it still keeps happening, so I don't think so...

Cartography anyone?

I'm writing a Pirate story, and I need a map of a Pirate world that's not so much like Earth.

Is anyone out there really good (or even moderately good) at drawing maps?

I'd really appreciate it if someone could help me out. I give credit. 

If you are, here's what I need:

It should be a large planet. As large if not larger than Earth. It should have ten major land masses, and nine major oceans. And one of those oceans should be in the middle of the land mass. So like a lake, but a hundred times larger. There should be islands (I imagine all planets that have oceans have islands, except the ones from Star Trek), but you can go ahead and put those as close together or far apart as you want. 

Please and Thank you

:)

Okay, I'm fashion-inept - I've spent my life as a jeans, tshirt and sneakers kinda girl. I need some shoe advice;

I need something that will go with light, summary kind of dresses, so I guess nothing too clunky. They need to be able to be worn both with and without stockings. They also need to be fairly practical - I'm not going hiking, but something I can wander around the city in for an hour or two, or wear at work when I need to roam about talking to people.

Can anyone suggest certain styles of shoes that would be worth me keeping an eye out for, as opposed to me staring blankly at walls of random footwear? :> I'll be asking people in the stores as well but it would be nice to have some idea of what I'm looking for.

Embarassing things which have happened to me in the last 24 hours:

A.) My cat was scooting. He's a big chunk (17 pounds) so he can't lick his own ass. This lead to him having enlarged anal glands. We took him to the vet. They take us back into the room and he's walking around hanging out. Then he jumps in the sink and takes a huge pee. We all just looked at him in shock. My cat.. is just... pissing infront of 4 people... in a sink.

B.) When I'm home alone I shower with the bathroom door open inorder to be able to hear the door, make it not so steamy in the bathrom, and so cat from before can come and go as he pleases (he likes to get into the shower with me...). I hear something in the living room, thinking it's him I get out of the shower shampoo still in my hair and no towel. I walk into the livingroom and guess what?! The FUCKING maitnence man is standing in the living room. He stares at me and I run to the bathroom and shut the door. He appologises and says he'll come back later.

Make me feel better: What's some embarassing things to happen to you?

Scenario- There is a stray cat that lives outside my house. It looks very beat up, so I feed it some. He keeps showing up with new visable wounds, some are not healing/infected.
When I am able to afford it, I take it to get tested for feline leukemia and aids and get him vaccinations and dewormed.
I bring him home and let him live in my house, feed him good food, and nurse his large amount of wounds to the point where they are all now healing nicely.

He has a small cough. I am on a tight budget right now, and can't at all aford to take him to the vet.

The question: Should I have never taken in this cat due to the whole "If you can't afford the vet, don't have pets" mantra that people have chanted to me?

Sidenotes- there are NO cheap animal care places near me, and I actually traveled 90 minutes to get his vaccines and such done at a cheaper place (that only does vaccines and neuturing/deworming. Luckily, he was already neutured.

I said to my boyfriend, 'Leave this out since we're going to make it soon." When we were putting away groceries. What I meant was put it in the fridge no freezer. What he heard was put it on the counter.

It sat out on the counter in our apartment which is about 70 degrees for around 8 hours. Can I still cook it? Am I going to die?

Do you put up with homophobia from people you spend time with but aren't especially close to? (coworkers, school friends, etc)

How would you react if you found out a close friend or relative was homophobic? Would you try changing their mind or just ignore it?

I recently found out that one of the boys I spend time with in school is homophobic, he thinks being gay is 'wrong' and 'disgusting'. We asked him what he would do if he found out one of us was gay and he said he would stop talking to that person. He's someone I met recently, we're not especially close, just in the same friend group and I don't particularly like him much anyway.

That said, would you actively cut him out? Would you continue spending spares and whatnot with him (in a group, not one-on-one) or would you avoid him completely? He doesn't mention his opinions unless we ask him but when we do ask he's not shy about expressing them, even when everyone else disagrees strongly.

Are there any, like, super-charged foods you know of that are packed with nutrition but aren't so bulky? I need to get some goods in my system FAST but I still just don't feel like eating anything.

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I have no experience whatsoever with having teeth removed.

If I have four teeth extracted, how long will it take for me to recover entirely and to be able to eat as I usually do? It's being done under general anesthetic, if that matters.

The closest date available is for the 21st December, and for obvious reasons I really don't want this to affect Christmas at all. The next date is the 17th January -- is this a more sensible choice? I am clueless.

Okay TQC, I am asking you to be my bug expert for the day... and before you tell me to go to the doctor and get it checked out. been there done that. And as it is my college's health services they are not the most competent people on eath so they don't really have a much better idea than I do.

TL;DR: I am itchy like crazy and have what appears to be mysterious bug bites all over me and I have no idea what they are

How normal is it to have your Christmas tree up before Halloween? Saturday night I noticed one of my neighbors has theirs up already (with lights on and everything).

I'm eating vanilla ice cream with Reese's peanut butter cups and caramel. What else could I put on it to make it even better?

What's one thing you loved in your childhood but didn't live up to your memories the last time you tried it?

I used to get a Hershey's Cookies and Cream bar to share with my best friend every weekend. I just ate one and it's not as tasty as I remember. :(

Sunday my boyfriend and I cleared out our storage unit, and then Monday* afternoon my back started hurting, and has been ever since.

How long should I wait before seeing the doctor?

I have a job interview tomorrow that I need to prepare for. Can somebody help me out and give me some examples of "tell me about a time when..." questions? Also, if I can't tell the interviewer about a time (due to having never been a position of that much authority), what should I say?

I'm going to see a concert in the O2 Arena in London for the first time... Are there any possibilities to meet artists?

Is there a general artist exit where fans can wait for them and they can sign stuff for the fans if they're bothered? When I was at the Roundhouse in London, there was no option like this, which kind of bummed me out, haha.

Sooo if you know anything from experience or have a map or something like that, it would be much appreciated!
Ta!

I started nanowrimo late and my husband doesn't want me to try at all because I have a lot of schoolwork this month. Should I accept reality and give up?

ETA: I've succeeded 3 years in a row, which makes not playing harder

Has anyone here ever 'gotten over' the death of a family member/loved one faster than other people in your life have? Or visa-versa? Will you tell Uncle slowboyishsmile all about it?
