If you are English, is there a typical "drink" you drink? I know Americans are known for beer and whiskey (I guess - I drink a lot of rum, but when I think American drinks, I focus on those) but I'm writing a story in which someone from Blackburn is having a drink and I didn't know if there was any certain popular "English" drink.

DK/DC: What fandoms are you a part of, if any? Lets meet and greet?

What's the most boring channel on tv to you?

Ion (wasn't it PAX before?) would probably be my answer. I've never seen anything that looks remotely appealing on that channel. Who's it even geared towards? At least PAX had re-runs of Supermarket Sweep and Shop 'til You Drop.

Next up would probably be the golf channel or something.

TQC did you ever read a series of novels that were for young adults, centered around a group of girls practicing magic, and the main character as far as I remember was named Diana, after the moon and she was super powerful, and she only just first realised her powers, and there was a stigma around her family?

I'd post to that book community that specialises in this sort of question except I cannot remember the name of it and I'm not a member.

TQCers who have taken Ambien or a similar drug - did you hallucinate? What have you seen? I have elaborate visual and auditory hallucinations while on Ambien (my room has been a dance club and Hispanic health clinic), and was just wondering if it affects anyone else here as strongly as it does me. Can we share stories?

Also, since my Ambien's about to kick in, what's the trippiest music video you can think of that I should watch while hallucinating?

Anyone bought a refurbished iPod? I'm thinking about a refurb iPod Touch because it's half the price of a new one, but I'm wondering how long it will hold up. I had an original iPod 3rd gen and it was always buggy and eventually quit, so I'm a little nervous about spending this kind of money on something that was already not perfect.

Do you tip extra in restaurants if someone at a nearby table is being obnoxious to the server?

I do. Not enough to cover the probably crappy tip of the other customer, but more than I would have normally.

People don't tip where I am/I never go out to restaurants: should I have toast for breakfast at home, or walk down to Tim Hortons for a bagel and an ice cap?

I want to raise a couple of chickens for eggs, for myself and others (to share, not looking for a profit.) There's a huge backyard right behind my house, but it belongs to the house next door. There is no fence that divides between the houses so I could easily walk into the backyard, but it'd be trepassing since it's their property. Both houses belong to my landlord so both houses rent. Would it be rude to ask them if I could put a couple chickens in the backyard? How should I go about asking them? They have a 3x5 garden plot, but otherwise.. rarely use the backyard. And oh! This is a small town where raising chickens is common.

For all you money savvy people, I have a question on selling furniture. How much can I sell a leather and suede 3 seat couch that's 3 years old and rarely sat in (I paid about $1000 for it new)? I think I may have sat in it a total of six times. It's really just a giant cat bed right now. There are some scratching marks on the bottom and one side, but that's the only damage.

Is it reasonable for me to ask the buyer to pay for moving the couch or to take it out themselves? I'm a tiny weakling and can't lift it.

I'm just tired of this couch taking up nearly half of my den!

There is a family of miniature panthers living in the jungle that is our front yard. They arrived last week (or they made themselves known last week, could have been in there for weeks prior).

TQC, what do I do?

Baby panthers and their momma (who really doesn't like me) (I might have told her to fuck off my lawn a few times)Collapse )

But seriously, should I do anything? Let momma take care of it or call someone? No random cat has ever done this in my yard before, so I don't know WTF you're supposed to do.

EDIT: I'm having no luck finding a no-kill shelter that isn't at capacity in our area. I'm going to look further out and see if I can find someone that can drive them for me. Suggestions from TQC Silicon Valley/Bay Area folks would be appreciated.

And my mother-in-law thinks we should be feeding the momma. I really don't want the cats adopting us, so is that a really bad idea? (I told you, I don't know what to do.)

Honest opinions please!

1. Say you have plans to go out with a group of mutual friends on a Friday night. Your SO doesn't want to go clubbing because they don't like it, and they don't really like you going out without them because they are insecure. You know going clubbing with your friends and leaving your SO at home will cause an argument. Your SO says that you can go clubbing with your friends if you want to, or you can stay with them and go out together for dinner and a film. What would you do or say?

2. You go out with your mutual friends and there are people of your preferred sex there who you are close friends with that your SO has not yet met. When you tell your SO, they get angry with you for going out with people of your preferred sex that they don't know and therefore don't trust. Your SO is angry at you. What do you do or say?

3. Is it good to be a little possessive and jealous in a relationship? If no, do you agree with the statement that just because it's not right for your relationship, it might be right for others?

TQC, I'm so discouraged.

I'm in the last month of a temporary job I got, and on June 14th, I need to move back home to San Francisco, CA to live with my parents and be unemployed. AGAIN.

The only job experience I really have is working in libraries, usually doing data entry or shelving books, or working in aquariums.

I'd really like a job as a waitress or a barista or a cashier at a grocery store or SOMETHING like that, but EVERY. SINGLE. JOB. I look at on craigslist in the retail or food service section requires previous experience in those fields. And I have none.

How does someone get a job when the only way to get a job is to have previous experience?

Will you complain about your job woes here? I need to feel less alone. :C

To cut a very long story short, my very overweight, lonely and bitter godmother had a thing with a Kenyan guy half her age, which not suprisingly ended in tears. Because my mum didn't approve of the relationship, she didn't talk about it with her, which eventually lead to my godmother refusing to talk to my mum anymore.
She now directs all her filthy texts to me. The latest one is about how she's been asked out by a 26 year old who likes plus size women.
What should I reply to this with? It's pretty inappropriate but I kind of feel I should make a joke to make her realise she's being silly.

So after months of just not giving a shit that my truck was all janky, I finally broke and got my lower intake manifold gasket replaced (it was dumping coolant into my oil and generally making my driving life miserable). Everything went fine for about a day after the repair, but after that, my check engine light came back on again, the truck vibrates like crazy when it idles, my gas mileage has gone to shit, and it feels like someone stuck some engine half its actual size in there, it has no power anymore.

Any ideas this time? I'm on a 'fix this truck for dirt cheap by myself/with my mechanic buddy because I'm too broke to afford taking it in' kick, that and I need to get it in a working/non-check-engine light state so I can drive it back to Colorado and get emissions done so I can do my plates before my grace period ends.

Is it possible my naturally low blood pressure just kept me from getting as overheated as other people? I don't mind hot weather the way other people do, either, and I'm starting to think maybe there's a real reason.
