My roommate is playing Black Ops and just yelled, "I don't want to kill you!  I want the four fucking bullets I put in your face to kill you!".  I lol'd so hard he yelled at me too.  When was the last time someone yelled at you for laughing at them?

Saw 3D

I'm wondering what you guys thought of Saw 3D. Disappointing? Better then the others? Explained enough? ect...

I found it so/so. Some of the traps were really cool and the ending was good but it didn't tie in all the lose ends well enough.

Earlier this evening I was playing with sharp objects and nicked the bridge of my nose. It's not a proper CUT... it's more like I scraped off the top layers of skin. It's no longer bleeding, but it looks... well, it looks like I tried to stick a bindi on my face an inch too low.

I want to do some filming tonight and I don't have any concealer. Would it be Really Bad if I used a little bit of oil pastel to cover the red spot? Do you know of any other ways to conceal an obvious mark like that without potentially contracting some kind of horrible infection?

Why do I wake up at 3:30am every morning? No matter what time I go to bed I wake up at 3:30am, toss and turn for 20 minutes and then I'm wide awake.

I've given up staying in bed as I just can't get back to sleep until about 6am and I get up at 9am. Normally I'll just snuggle up on the sofa with my cat but I still can't sleep. I'm so tired all the time.

Are you tired? Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night and feel ridiculously hungry?

I've tried googling, but all I'm getting is results on when to send my payroll in if there is a bank holiday. I have no payroll.

If my direct deposit is usually available at 5pm on Thursday (which would be today) will the bank holiday (Veteran's Day) screw that up? Officially, payday is tomorrow, but I need to put gas in my tank and my checking account is looking pretty empty at the moment.

EDIT: NVM It went through after I checked the account this morning.

My friend clogged my toilet to the point where just plunging doesn't do enough last night. Now maintenance has to come in and fix it, and because it's my own bathroom, they are going to think it was me. I should hide in the living room and act nonchalant, yeah?

Are you embarrassed when you have to call maintenance over shit like that?

I have a lady bits questions.
and its pretty stupid, and I should know this because I am, a female.
as women, do we have in our bodies (somewhere, and if so where?!) all the eggs we are going to have in our fertile lifetime?  or do they develop each month and release?
does this question even make sense?
NB: I do know how the whole menstruating thing works, in terms of what happens each month.

What are some habits and/or clothing/accessory items of whichever gender you're sexually attracted to that you find really sexy?

Me, I'm into men.

For some reason, I find the act of men shaving their beards/shadows so incredibly sexy.
Also, I've lately really been into guys who wear light pink button-up shirts.
AND, guys with hair that's cut pretty short on the sides and back but kept longer at the top and front.

I'm trying to find a photographer that one of my students was trying to describe to me. All she could offer was that it was a woman photographer, she photographs in a Pre-Raphaelite style, and that one of the photographs is a woman in a garden with a wreath of strawberries around her head.

Any ideas??

I've been having my hair professionally colored for the past two years. Right now, I'm broke but I have about an inch and a half of obviously and ugly ass root regrowth. I used to do my own color and ruined my hair until I had a pro take over. Do I risk it and do my own color to hold me over until I get money again? My hair is blackish brown s there's not much that I could do to screw it up, like if I decided to bleach it or something.

What do I do?

About to give my car a bath

Poll #1643385 Carwash!

I know it depends on the season and how dirty it is and yadda yadda, but ON AVERAGE, how often do you wash your car?

More than once a month
Every other month
A couple times a year

How do you normally wash your car?

Drive-thru automatic carwash
Coin-Op car wash
Garden Hose in the driveway
I have a maid/servant/slave/child/parent do it for me

Do you use soap?


How dirty does your car need to be before you think "damn I gotta wash this heap"

I'm very particular. If I see dirt, it bothers me
I like it clean but a little dirt's okay.
When it's the dirtiest one around
When the windshield is translucent, save for where the wipers go
No amount of dirt bothers me.

On October 27, I dropped off a small package to be mailed to Sydney, Australia from New York City. Since shipping things that far away was already expensive enough, I shipped via regular mail. It's now November 11, and my friend still hasn't received the package. I understand that Sydney is really far away from NYC, but doesn't it seem as though it should have gotten there by now? It's been 2 weeks. Since I shipped via regular mail and not priority or express, there's no way of tracking the shipment. Now I'm getting worried that it's gotten lost in transit.

Why could it be taking so long??

Have any of you ever shipped something internationally that has taken over 2 weeks to get delivered?

Too bored and tired to make this more interesting

With the rise in popularity of 'It's on like Donkey Kong', it made me consider that there may be a future for all old 80s video games in contemporary conversation. Which of the following phrases do you think would most catch on?

'I'll see you laters in Space Invaders'
'Talk to the hand like Mrs. Pac Man'
'Hope you get a hemorrhoid the size of Asteroids'
'Eff your mother like Super Mario Brothers'
'You're dumb as dirt with a nose like Q-bert'
'Balls to the wall like we're in Pitfall'
'This is totally sublime like Burgertime'
'Shitty blogger run down like Frogger'

What do you do when you're really bored with the food you've been eating?

I've lost my appetite for a lot of things and everything seems bland. Going grocery shopping is really boring and going out to eat seems even more boring.

I'm applying for a job and I have the black-and-white type qualifications (I have the proper certifications and such) but I probably don't have the exact experience they're looking for (I've taught English and Phys Ed., I've taught Grades 7-8, but I've never taught Grade 7-8 English and Phys Ed). I want to apply just for the hell of it but don't want to waste my time either.

There's a webcomic around that has a picture of a pug (maybe Natalie Dee's pug Chester) and he's dressed up like Darth Vader and the text is why he's like Vader - he wheezes, something else, and he uses the dark side of the force to make you carry him up the stairs. That part is for sure. It's adorable and I want to save it! Do you know what I'm talking about/have a link to it?

How do you organize your schoolwork?
Do you keep your work from previous years, or do you throw it out? What do you do with the notebooks for that term, but don't need for that day?

I end up just piling all the shit onto my desk into a pile (notebooks and binders and paper) and then when I get fed up of the pile, move it to the floor next to my desk. I need a better system.

What kind of silly naturey things do you wonder about?

Like, I always wonder how animals that live primarily on only one type of prey get a balanced diet. Like leopard seals eat mostly just penguins, right? Penguins aren't vegetables, so WHERE DO LEOPARD SEALS GET THEIR GREENS? lol

Pls to be sharing the dumb nature things that you think about. Maybe we can pool our brainpowers and find some answers for each other.

certified mail surprise

I got a card in my mailbox that says I have a certified letter to pick up at the post office. The square where they were supposed to write the sender's name was left blank.

Should I go get it?

What do you think it is? srs/nonsrs

Have you ever gotten one of these? Was it worth standing in line at the post office?

Update: It turned out to be a letter from a law office looking for someone else with my name. What a waste of time. lol

Ok, big problem. Reserved a room for 5 people in NY. Ordered plane tickets already. Plane tickets are nonrefundable.

You have to be 21 to check in. All of us are twenty. Apparently this policy is in place in all NY hotels? Idk. But we didn't know about this when we booked it. It doesn't say so anywhere on their site, and we called multiple times with different questions without anyone saying anything. Today, I called to ask about something else and the lady asked me randomly how old I was. I said 20...and then she said this would propose a problem?

Wtf? Does anyone know of any NYC hotels that will let us stay there even though we're under 21? Do you think they'll let us stay since we already booked it? Fuck

I'm hungry. I had tacos an hour ago. I don't have anything else to make a meal with. Should I...

Order food? (Probably Indian maybe Korean)
Eat more tacos?
Go to the grocery store for food to make another meal?
Get takeout at some place down the street? (Maybe falafel?)

Is there another option?

I'm supposed to be studying so ordering is the most appealing right now, since it would involve the least amount of time obtaining/preparing food. But it's also the most expensive.

I've had a major problem with my 8 year old daughter lying to get out of trouble. Problem is, she keeps lying about things she wouldn't have gotten in trouble for, then ends up getting in trouble for lying. I did the grounding thing, which didn't really help. She got a dose of Tabasco sauce on her tongue which helped for about 2 weeks, but she kicked it up again last week. TQC, do you have any suggestions? How do I get it to sink in that she will always get in more trouble for lying?

Edit: For everyone mentioning the Tabasco on her tongue, it's the same idea as washing a kid's mouth out with soap, which isn't a pleasant experience either.

OH! And I forgot to mention, she actually likes Hot sauce mixed in to her food, so it's not as much a punishment as it probably seems.

Advice needed :/

Hi TQC, I need the advice of the masses please. Last year, I loaned a friend $500. We made a written contract which was dated and signed. The contract said he had to return the money by November 9th, 2009. He got royally fucked by a bad business deal, so I gave him some extra time. I've maybe seen him twice in 2010 and he hasn't brought up the loan once. Getting a hold of this guy is pretty hard since he's insanely busy and lives in two countries. I sent him two notifications that I was going to take him small claims court to both of his e-mail addresses, and sent messages that I needed to speak with him ASAP to his name on Gmail Chat, text message, voice mail (+ 3 unanswered calls), and passing a note through a mutual friend. I also mailed him a letter. No replies to anything. I don't really want to take him to court because the fees will mean that I won't get the full $500 which I need. Is there anything else I should do?

Edit: Red liquorice doesn't contain any liquorice so I was more-so leaning towards actual liquorice with this question. Interpret how you will.
