My dear TQC,

Tonight, my google-fu has failed me. So I turn to you, my beloved community, to help me find the answer to which I seek.

Who said/wrote/sang this quote "It was one of those unexplainable moments of eye contact that is immediately over-analyzed and inevitably misread"? Or was it one of those facebook 'likes' that caught on and was actually awesome enough to be quoted? If none can be found, can it be quoted as anonymous?

DK/DC: What is your favorite quote?

Do you write your letter "a"s more like the first or second one in this picture?

When you're writing 'normally,' do you write in a more cursive/script or more print fashion?

Were you ever taught cursive in school? Do you ever use it now?

Do you think teaching kids that they have to learn math without calculators is fair when calculators are a necessity in the high school classroom and beyond? 

ETA: I mean math beyond "basic" math, things you might learn in middle school - stuff beyond the basics that you are later taught how to do on a calculator and probably forgot how to do by hand long ago.

What's a good thank-you gift if you're staying at a friend's place for 2 days? [Jan. 3rd, 2011|12:48 am]
The Question Club

[heart_over_head]

What's a good thank-you gift to give to a friend if you're flying down (from Northern California to LA) to visit her and will stay at her place for about 2 days? Like a "thank you for letting me stay at your place" kind of thing? If it's her mom's place, what's good to give to her her and another to give to her mom?

If it matters, she recently graduated from the university I attend, is 30 years old (but has the spirit of a 20-year-old), and is worried about getting a job afterwards. I'm 21 and am still at that college.

Thanks so much!!!

Americans of TQC, I have a question about pizza.

How come that you guys consider a couple of slices of pizza an entire meal, and that eating an entire pizza would be considered a really huge one? When we have pizza we order one for every person, and eating the whole thing is not weird or considered as overeating at all while I get the impression that it is in the USA. Which then does not conform to the stereotype of the fat overeating American! What's the deal?

I'm sorry if you have no idea what I'm talking about.

Also, can you tell me about some other food-related cultural stereotypes?

I never know when they change things about on facebook but recently I have noticed that I cannot seem to find the "find friends" area.

Where the hell is that function now?
I only know names, not email addresses, usernames, etc.

How can I search on facebook using only a name?

I've never wanted biological children, and I've been looking into having the Essure procedure for a couple of years now, but when I just went to talk to my mother about it (she used to be a nurse so knows about these things), she flipped a shit, saying I'm too young to know what I want and "when I meet the right man I'll want babies". I was like...no.

My bf and I have a $50 gift certificate to this Indian/Greek place, so we decided to go spend it today. They have these two "meals for 2" that are crazy-expensive, but we have to use this certificate, so why not? There's only a $5 difference between the 2, and we don't have enough experience in either culture's cuisine to know which one would offer the most varied/best tasting food. What do you guys think?

Which meal should we get?

Pappadam, Pakora, Samosa, Chicken Tikka, Seekh kabob, Vegetable Korma Rice, Naan
40(63.5%)
Pappadam, Sampler Platter (calamari, 2 cheese sticks and 2 chicken fingers), Greek Salad, Steak Kabob, Hummus, Chicken Tikka Marsala, Rice, Naan.

Someone, recommend me a printer to buy
My old one is starting to die on me, but it's really old - about 10 years old..(Epson Stylus)
Up to now, it's been perfect, I used to print out many, many full-color pages, books for my kids, etc..
My requirement is the ability to manually refill ink cartridges - there's no way that I'm paying full price for a color cartridge every time that ink runs out - I won't be able to afford so much color printing as my 4-year old requests...
So, I need a printer (not scanner - I already have a separate one, no fax - we have no landline, nothing extra fancy). It just needs to print. In color. And let me stick a syringe with color into the cartridge.
It'd be nice to have the 2-side printing feature (I'm tired of printing out all the even pages first, and then turning them over and printing the odd pages on the reverse)
Also, are all modern printers USB-only? Anything new out there that still uses a parallel port?

I used to gamble a fair amount, and as a result I've wound up on the marketing list for basically every other casino on Earth. I haven't gone to a casino in over a year (I'm not a crackhead gambling addict or anything, it's just a serious passion of mine -- right up there with drinking, day trading, and House) and they keep sending me offers to entice me back.

Normally I throw them in the trash right away but this one seems almost too good to pass up. Free 3-night stay in a suite "at one of our Total Rewards destinations including Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino Las Vegas, Paris Las Vegas, Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, Bally’s Las Vegas, Flamingo Las Vegas, Harrah’s Las Vegas or Imperial Palace."

Some of those are total crap, but Harrah's and Caesars are actually pretty nice. Wondering if I should go and then just put a strict cap on how much I gamble while there -- so that even if I lose 100% of my fun money, I've still gotten more from them than they have from me. Should I go? Or should I not cave in to direct marketing??? I'm also thinking of taking my ex-girlfriend/current friend, as she wants to do a vacation somewhere, but I'm not sure if three days at a blackjack table is really what she had in mind.

When you go to answer someone's question do you read everyone else's comments too?

Do you just skip to the answering part and ignore other answers?

Do you just click on their entry and mash your keyboard with your fists balled up until intelligible words appear?

So tell me what to do: I went on this coffee date yesterday and it was fun, and then today the guy called and asked me to hang out and watch Dexter at his place with some pizza on Thursday. I was like, cool, sure.

But I have this Friend with Benefits that I'm sleeping with because I'm single and dating and why not. Should I tell this friend that I'm going on a casual date on Thursday? Or should I just not mention it?  Should I sleep with both guys? Perhaps at the exact some time? 
I feel like I'm about to play the field here.

Is what I'm doing unethical? Should I really care? Am I setting myself up for trouble?

My parents have come to visit me today and it is totally miserable. We were trying to decide what to do about an hour ago and my mum was being a bitch to my dad who was being stubborn and a dickhead so I just walked away and went home. We were supposed to meet at a restaurant at 6pm (45 minutes from now), should I turn up or should I just keep drinking this lovely bottle of red wine?

For an essay I need to write for medical program application, it listed this as an optional topic to cover:

"related personal or family medical experiences"

Does this mean dealing with health problems within my family related to the field? Or family members with medical careers?


It also asks for hobbies and interests, what the heck do I put for that?? "I love Star Trek and the internet" doesn't sound appropriate.

My boyfriend broke up with me today. We're going to try and be friends. I still love him and he says he cares about me, but that our relationship had become "boring."

I wish I could hate him or be mad at him, but all I feel is sadness. I know I'll be okay, I just don't know how long it will take.

Can you share anything that makes you laugh with me?

Should I watch Fantastic Mr. Fox or Inglorious Basterds while I stuff myself full of chocolate ice cream tonight?

I have a rapidly growing obsession with antagonists. Neat/interesting ones, at least. Can you recommend any awesome books or movies that you think I might like?

To help you out, my favorite villains include: Joker (TDK or comics). Hans Gruber (Die Hard), Mr. Brooks (Mr. Brooks), Jackson Rippner (Red Eye), Peter & Paul (Funny Games), and Rudy Cooper (Dexter). I also loved both movie and book versions of Alex (A Clockwork Orange) and Jack (The Shining).

It's been a while since I've discovered a really interesting antagonist. They're difficult to find!

TQC, Tonight was my first experience at making a gingerbread house.
I've always wanted to but hadn't before--namely because I'm Jewish. A friend and I bought a packaged kit and did it tonight.. or at least, we TRIED TO! (and I mean *try*!.. extra icing from outside the box, re-attaching it a few times, etc.. before we just gave up because it kept falling down.)

Q1: Gingerbread house construction: Is it always so. much. harder than it looks? :p
(&We are both in the graduate level of school so we technically aren't "StuPiD" people :p)

Q2...Was it because we made the roof wayyy TOO HEAVY? (got a little carried away with all the different kinds of candy we wanted to put on..)

But please, will you tell me the truth - IS it harder than one would think? (or are we just really bad at it!? considering it came from a package..)

Among your friends, are you particularly concerned about formality/grammar/spelling when typing? Most of my friends use pretty formal language and punctuation online (with a couple of acronyms and things like that mixed in) so it always kind of astonishes me when people use text speak/excessive emoticons and things like that.

I once had a teacher who would use text speak in emails, it was very odd to me.

I've been on Cymbalta for a few months now, but I started seeing a psychiatrist in addition to my primary care, and so my primary care physician has decided that she's not going to continue to allow refills on my cymbalta, even though my psychiatrist told me to stay on it (which I told her).  My prescription has been out for two days now and I'm withdrawing stupidly hard.  I've come off antidepressants cold-turkey before, but I don't remember it being this miserable.  I can handle it, but I'd just like to know: how long should I expect these symptoms?

I've tried googling, but all I've gotten are people saying ZOMG DON'T QUIT COLD TURKEY! which really isn't an option for me, so I just need a straight-forward answer.

Hi again TQC, food question here.
My SO's family had me over for christmas eve dinner and they had these dumplings my SO wants me to figure out how to make. They are a German / Eastern European family and the dumplings are kind of like balled up mashed potatos but they are formed and more solid. I am jewish and i thought they were initially similar to matzo balls but not. at. all.

I know you can make them from a package mix (powder and water? Maybe they are instant potato flakes?) but I dont know what they are called, my SO says they are likely Ukranian.

Any ideas?
ETA: they are savory, only had potato flavor-no herbs or protein. They are small fist to baseball sized rounds
ETA 2: Its kartoffel knodel! Thanks TQC You are great!

Hey TQC! I'm looking to get some cute new clothes (I just broke up with my boyfriend and I feel like acting like an adorable single girl). I generally like clean, simple silhouettes, bootcut jeans, wedges, slightly androgynous looking stuff (like a pantsuit with lace, that kind of thing). I've enjoyed clothes from Charlotte Russe, Express, Old Navy and Bebe. Do you have any awesome stores to recommend me?

Also, what should I do with my hair? I want to make it sleeker, but it's so thick and wavy that accomplishing that without a straightener is pretty difficult! Here is a picture:

Perhaps a dumb question, but: lets say I'm going to have a procedure done that requires local anesthetic (just a numbing shot, pretty much). Is it a bad idea/dangerous/whatever to take a Vicodin beforehand? Will the Vicodin help with the pain of the procedure at all, since local anesthetic isn't enough?

I am in pain now and will be until after the procedure (and probably for a bit afterward) so I'm not just taking it for the pain that will occur during the procedure. More like, I have to take it so it's bearable for me to function.

One of my resolutions this year is to go to another country. Based on timing, it's looking like either Mexico or Canada is going to work best as I don't have a large chunk of time to go anywhere further from the US.

I am leaning towards Canada because I haven't been there before, specifically either Victoria or Vancouver because like I said, I don't have too much time and considering the travel itself takes time, I want to stay closer to the west coast (as I live in California).

Would you go to Vancouver or Victoria? Or maybe another city in the western part of the country?

What is there to do there that you would recommend (if you've ever been there) or would want to do if you want there?

I'm going to have about 4 days.

http://www.cnn.com/2011/US/01/03/arkansas.falling.birds/index.html

In other words, these birds hit something very fast, or they were hit by something fast.

WTF could fool 5,000 birds to crash into it, all at the same time? Got the chills when I read that article.
