Would you tell me a story about a time you made a stupid mistake while you were driving?
Would you think the same about homosexual/bisexual/asexual people who pretend they are heterosexual for the same reason?
Should I suck it up and enjoy this flawless, spot on, masterful work of music, etc. or should I go hunt her down and smother her with my pillow?
Are you at all interested/involved in politics? For those in the generation who grew up/are growing up with social media like Facebook and Twitter, do you think elections and smear campaigning are going to be more vicious and revealing in the coming decades because of up and coming generations inability to censor one's actions that they public display and have a tendency to totally overshare on?
Ex. Pictures of frat dudes with underage drinking and smoking "something" who pursue a political career? Anime aficionados/furries who post raunchy convention pictures?
Will this have any affect on the future of politics/campaigning?
you can test yourself on sporcle
Yes or no?
Should or shouldn't?
EDIT: As suggested by ntensity , I'll spoil you all with deets in this post hits 20 comments.
EDIT2: ...Alright, that came much quicker than I expected lol. The yes or no was me wanting snap decisions on whether or not I should move across the country with my mom rather than sticking around New England with my dad. And the should or shouldn't is whether I'm going to ask my parents for a tattoo for Christmas instead of actual gifts to open.
Do you hate people who know you don't play but insist on sending you game requests anyways?
If you do play, what level are you?
What is your favorite food to eat when your throat hurts really fucking badly?
Me, I have a term paper to submit in around four hours and I still have 1,500 words to come up with. So yeah, pretty screwed.
I am ridiculously hungry, TQC. The kitchen holds eggs, chocolate chip waffles, a stale donut, and a big cinnamon roll cake, along with orange juice and cherry limeade juice. What should I have for breakfast?
I'm gonna play WoW on my boyfriend's computer. Probably not hardcore, just when he's not on it and I feel like playing. I want something that's more defensive than offensive, and less up close in battle and more magic. What should I pick to start off with? ETA: zoram has convinced me to do Paladin. Because PONY.
I couldn’t because of illness and general school phobia/agoraphobia. The thing is though I can’t afford to be home tutored and no one’s accepting me as a private candidate. I feel pretty down on myself because my brothers about to take his a-levels and my friends are all going off to university.
To me distance/online learning seems ideal but I just don’t have the money for it :(
(I live in England by the way.)
...eat 3lbs of butter with a spoon within a 6 hour timespan?
...ride the subway for 6 hours wearing nothing but a smallish towel (only big enough to cover your naughty parts) and flip-flops? You can stand or sit but it looks like you've just climbed out of the shower
...crawl 100 yards through a sewage pipe wearing only that same skimpy towel from the previous question? The sewage level is 6" high. Unfortunately, the sewage pipe in question is only 2' high, so you'll have to get on your hands and knees
...take strong roofies and go to a party at the Jersey Shore house? You'll have to sign a waiver so you can't take legal action for whatever happens afterwards, and everybody at the party will know you're on roofies. Come what may!
...be a part of a disgusting viral video like 2 girls 1 cup? They get a horse to poop in a pie pan, and through seamless film edit, it'll look like you're then gobbling it down like a pie eating champ, but in actuality you're gobbling up chocolate pie. You then sit up, your face covered in brown chocolate and you lick your mouth. The video, though, will make it look like you snacked on horse poop. The video will flood the media and tens of millions of people worldwide will see it, including people you know. You can explain what actually happened, but will they believe you?
...engage in the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona while doused in the urine of a cow who's going through the bovine equivalent of 'in heat'? You'll have to run 2 blocks before ducking for cover to earn the money
Are there any songs that make you laugh for whatever reason whenever you listen to them? Mine is Joe Cocker's "You Are So Beautiful". I love it, but at the end when he goes all squeaky trying to hit those high notes, I start laughing. It never fails.
Do you like any fake bands? For instance, 2Gether, The Wonders from That Thing You Do, etc? I think 2Gether's "hit" "Breaking Up Is Hard Enough" is one of the best things I ever heard when I was in my teen years.
Do you have use a tag a lot and try to automatically tag? For instance, I'm a member of statements and I just tried to tag this entry with my tag from there. I've also tagged my own journal entries with tags from there without thinking.
I really dislike coffee and tea :-/
I got my first REAL christmas tree this year. It's a 7.5 ft Fraser. I've had one person tell me to add sugar to the water, another tell me aspirin. I def want to make it last as long as I can since I bought it mostly for the fragrance it leaves in my house. What is your take on this TQC? What do I add to the water?
Apologies if this has been asked before. I tried googling for the answer, but got too many different responses. What does the majority rule?
DK/DC: What is the most expensive thing you bought this year and have paid for in full? (Not counting things such as houses/cars that you are making payments on.) Are you getting enough use out of it to justify the cost?
in your mind, which boy band is superior?
which of the following statements is true for you?
After Bills' receiver Steve Johnson dropped a key pass in a loss to the Steelers, he blamed God in a Tweet. What information can one learn from this situation?
Show me some cute pictures of baby animals? Or Kids? Or something that will make me laugh?
If so, what did you get?
(I got this really useless bag made of zippers.)
On a related note, if you have bought something from that store, do you now get spam forwarded to you from somethingstore.com advertising cialis and viagra?
Which documentary/video/etc do you think influenced you the most and why?
How about any that may have changed other habits of yours (such as the WAL-MART: The High Cost of Low Prices, etc)? What were they and how did they affect you?
What's going wrong with your day or week so far? Baw with me, TQC.
Alternatively, what did your last marathon consist of?
What fashion trends do you hate?
DK/DC: What's your favorite holiday cookie? Bonus points if I can make it without flour.

Some of my friends and I watched it yesterday, I thought it was funny, but a couple of my friends thought that it was really actually awful, in that it bothered them, which made me feel bad. D: Of course, after they said that, I saw, obviously, how it's kind of gruesome, sure, but I hadn't been taking it that seriously. It's just a cartoon.
Do you have a dream you'd like TQC to decode for you?
you've been hanging out with/sleeping with someone for about a week. every time you're together, they put their arms around you/kiss you/hold your hand, etc. you ask them one night if they'd like to go on a date. their response: "this is as close as i get to dating."
What can I do about this? Is my fridge too cold? Too humid? I miss salad and sandwiches!!
Wow, I'm making myself hungry.
DK/DC: Any fun plans for the weekend?
What would you consider a prime candidate?
What other impressions have you had, just to find out they were completely wrong?
I moved into this new apartment a little less than 2 weeks ago. Our apartment overlooks this overgrown area, lots of underbrush, etc We've noticed at least 3 cats wandering/fighting/yowling around. They don't seem like your scrappy street cats, but I've seen them wandering around at night when I walk the dog. It's getting cold here (below freezing and all that)
Should I call animal control about it? A teenaged cat just strolled past my patio and I feel bad if the kitties don't have proper homes! But I don't know if they're just outdoor cats/belong to someone who lets them out all day and brings them in at night or whatever.
i feel so terrible for her and so sad, i cry almost everytime i talk to her. shes completely 100% not my mom, if you know what i mean, like not herself.
and while i feel absolutely terrible, i also find myself resenting her sometimes and the fact that shes sick, and then i feel guilty about feeling that way. its a vicious circle. it makes me not want to go home to see her in such a state. (well, i barely see her, bc shes in bed all the time)
i dont know what to do, or how to feel.
is this even normal? does anyone else have similiar feelings/stories?
make me feel like im not the worst daughter in the word. ugh.
Do Jewish people born around Hanukkah have their birthdays overshadowed by Hanukkah celebrations? For example, get fewer presents, or have fewer people being able to attend their birthday parties because of other religious/family commitments?
Inspired by me bitching about how it sucks that my Bday is close to Xmas, so I get fewer presents and no one can ever come to my birthday party, and the fact that one of our friends, who is Jewish, is about to give birth.
Disclaimer: Pardon my ignorance, and I do not mean to offend anyone! I was just curious if "Hanukkah babies" get as screwed as "Christmas babies". Being a Christmas baby has really sucked for me :(
Feel free to use this post to bitch about getting screwed over by Xmas if your birthday is in Dec.
I'm 21 and I have no idea what I'm doing with my life, and I think I need to make that decision for myself soon.
[Edit: Also, does this color change mean they're inedible? Or are they still fine, just.... gross looking?]
now that I've got that tacky cheesewheel out of the way, the real question. If you've attended/are attending college/university/whatever, did you apply for aid? How much did you get?
What's for lunch tomorrow?
ETA: THANKS Y'ALL!
look like the same symbol as the background of this:
eta: changed the picture to a clearer one
"Hi. I'm the friend. To me it didn't smell weird at all but it tasted like manure smells in the countryside during summer."
Why is it ok to comment on someone's height when they're tall but not when they're short?
What are some other examples of this?
Have you ever had permanent extensions?
Did you like them? Hate them?
What's the price range for them?
How long did they last?
Eta: what are my options beyond clip-in that won't destroy my hair?
What's really begun to piss you off lately?
( Collapse )
WHATS GOING TO HAPPEN TO ME?
What's your favorite bad movie? Either so bad it's actually good or something you like that most people don't or that got bad reviews.
Mine is From Hell. omg it's embarrassing how many times I've watched it.
I have to be at work a 5 in the morning and I don't have time for this!
what was your last encounter with an animal besides your own pet?
What are some good songs to listen to when you're sad?
eta: Sad songs, not happy ones. I WANT TO WALLOW
I'm getting my owl tattoo shaded and coloured tomorrow, homgsoexcited. Will you show off your tattoos with me in celebration?
Potato bacon soup for New Year's Eve post-drunk supper/New Year's Day leftover hangover food: best idea, or greatest idea?
I'm thinking about getting one of those mandolin kitchen slicer thingies, you know, you rub the food on it and it makes little slices. I like making fried potatoes and I like tomatoes on everything. but I'm still debating whether I'd use it, I mean, my kitchen has very limited storage space so if I'm going to take in something like this it has to be worth the space.
do you have one? what kind? do you like it? use it?
what large kitchen tools do you have that are actually worth the space they take up? like, my lettuce spinner is big but it's priceless. my blender... on its way out.
Earlier today, while driving home, I came across a small child (between 1 and 1 1/2 years old) in the middle of the street. I pulled over. When I got out of my car, I started looking around for parents as I coaxed her over to the sidewalk. I sat down with her and talked to her about, "mama," hoping that she might point at her house or something, idk.
I sat there waiting for some panicked parents to come running out, but nothing happened. Another woman pulled over and asked if I needed to use her phone. I told her how I had found the baby, so she called the police. Maybe a minute or two later, another woman, the baby's grandmother apparently, rounded the corner with her two other grand children.
The grandmother didn't speak English, but her grandson told me that she had left the baby home alone because she was sleeping and would only be gone a few minutes to pick up the other children.
So of course, the police came, and I left. I know I did what anyone should/could do, but I can't stop worrying about the whole situation.
Do you think they took the baby from the home? Am I hopefully just making a mountain out of a molehill?
Will you tell me about your last food related disappointment?
Do you run the software?
I'm currently running it on the ps3 :)
my kitten is currently sleeping on our bed. i should join her for a nap y/y?
What are your favorite full-flavored beers?
* definition #2.
Such as Phase 10, apples to apples etc.
What about battle cards?
Such as Magic: the Gathering.
I have before.
If so ^^ do you own said magic cards? What color deck(s) do you have? Themes?
Is this a good idea for a deck of Magic cards?: white, blue, red, and theme is either protection or burn.
I ask b/c a friend of mine offered to make me a deck of my choice. B/c I have a limited knowledge of this kind of stuff I ask you guys. Maily b/c I trust you more that google. :)
Which is better: pie or cake?
I like pie more b/c it isn't as sickly sweet and I can pretend it's mildly healthy b/c it has fruit in it. :D
Can I wrap a package in Christmas paper and then mail it? It's a box full of presents, and I'd like to wrap it in plain-ish green paper, then put the address on a big white sticker then stick it on. I'll be doing self mailing so there will be another big white sticker with the address on it. I've only ever done plain brown paper, and sort of want to do something more Christmasy!
So, I don't want to just get the average gift card or mug full of candy. I want to be creative. Can you give me creative, appropriate gift ideas for a woman around her sixties who said she has no preference when it comes to gifts?
Some types of sliced bread don't come with them I guess, but I'm talking about bits at the end that are all crust. There seems to be some controversy as to whether they are edible, legitimate slices of bread.
Do you agree?
Expand on the concept if you feel inclined.

Where can I find the newest episode of Misfits streaming online?
Will you share a story with us?
It can be anything! Personal experience, something gross, funny, scary, something you've read...Let's get a big, fat, thread of entertainment going here!
Why or why not?
It's a black shirt, with a girl on it - wearing a gas mask, and holding a skull in each hand over her boobs (she isn't wearing a shirt).
Does anyone happen to know the website where this shirt is from?
(Thankies => )
I've tried searching for it just through google and I'm not having much luck.. I tried here: http://www.zazzle.com.au/gasmask+gifts but no luck.
If not - what online tshirt/clothes shops do you like to buy from ? (link)
what is your favorite way to relax?
would you post the last picture you took? camera or phone or webcam or whatever.
Because I think the thing has been there for four or five months now, and I really have no idea.
Can we please keep everything sfw? jkjk.
How's life treating you these days?
Anything exciting that isn't Christmas related going on for you right now?
What experiences did you think would make you feel "more adult" but didn't?
Also, what do/did/are you going to major in? What is the most interesting thing you've learned about this subject?
And gifts that would appeal to a wide variety of people? (that aren't gift cards or money)
What was the last song you listened to?
the last movie you watched?
Do you have any big secrets? Is it stressful to keep the information inside?
Question 2: Have you ever visited the grave/memorial/place of death of a celebrity? Who and where?
I love peppermint bark!
