Is it wrong to remain close friends with someone who has strong romantic feelings for you (which you don't share)?

So, everyone seems to agree that it's on the party with too many feelings to sort it out.

Since I can't seem to stay on topic tonight, can we have an official off-topic post (also known as 'ot, but')?

Or in case you want a topic to be on (or get off), can you give me some trivia about Julius Caesar? the sillier the better. I need it to defeat my brother in a 'did you know JC ...'-contest

Say you were a famous musician/in a famous band, and you were asked for your permission to use one of your songs on Glee? Would you say yes? What if you were asked to come on Sesame Street and sing with a Muppet? Why or why not?

Issues with flash games on facebook

I tend to leave my computer on all day, with Firefox open. However, when I go away for a couple of hours and then come back, certain flash games on Facebook (including Lucky Train and Farmville) won't load unless I close Firefox entirely and the reopen it. No matter how many times I refresh the page, there's just a small blank area where the flash games should be. As soon as I close and reopen Firefox, everything is fine.

Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone have any tips on fixing it? Is it a memory issue? Does my computer just suck?

DK/DC: Do you play games on Facebook? If so, which are your favourites? If not, do you look down on those who do?

How dumb is it......

for a mother to bring her 4 year old son to the mall with her the day after she had him circumcised? She had promised to buy him a pair of cowboy boots before he had the procedure. It was obvious the little guy was in a lot of pain.

I personally think it was stupid. I don't care if you approve of circumcision or not. If you are going to have it done, do it when he is born so he won't remember the pain. Don't wait until he is 3 or 4 knowing it's going to hurt.

Ugh.

I found out some really sad news last night about one of my favorite family members.

Can you please post your favorite movie/song/book that you always turn to in times of distress? Thanks. I need some comfort.

Denmark and Love


Hey there TQC-ers.

So I'm sitting here alone in my boyfriend's appartment, I know, no one in this country and I'm considering moving here. Even though I know it's completely insane, and my family will accuse me of running away from my current life in Paris (and my ex). I'd love to meet some people and make some friends before taking the leap but I'm quite shy and my Danish is very limited. I've signed up with meetup.com which seems great but none of their meet ups seem to happen when I'm in town.

Are any of you guys from Denmark? What's the best place to meet people/make new friends in Copenhagen? Should I do the crazy thing and move here from Paris? Does anyone near Copenhagen want to meet for a coffee today?

And for the non-Danish contingent:  What's the craziest thing you've done for love and did it work out? If you live on your own, how do you fill your free time?

Should I buy this mp3 player or this one?

The video screen is cool, but I already have a Clip and I know it's reliable (except for when you leave it in your car when it's over 100 degrees outside and you somehow melt a connection inside so it doesn't always turn on!)

Do I spring for something new or stick with what I know?

I need to spend 20$ more to get no interest for 18 months on the computer I'm buying, lol.


UGH NEVERMIND HOW DUMB. It was $429 BEFORE tax to get the 18 months no interest and with the mp3 player added, it was $430 AFTER tax. So f that. I'll make do with my half melted sort of broken Clip that I already own. And if you're curious, I bought this computer.

I want to make a 'dude ranch' where the whole point of it is that visitors will get 'attacked' by invaders of their choice (aliens, zombies, playboy bunnies, whatever) and have to either defend the ranch or flee to the woods and survive there while being chased. Survivors get a prize.

Does such a thing already exist? I tried looking and got a bunch of 'survival' camps that were just low-tech camping. No fake enemies in sight.

Okay, I lied about the bunnies.

Have you ever lied about having a pet to avoid paying a hefty deposit for a new apartment/house/etc? Did they ever find out?

I've always paid the pet deposit in the past but now that I am moving again everyone is telling me to lie about my cat's existence. I don't want to get evicted or fined tho :(

My sister has been out of control for a long time now. Drinking, partying, and basically ruining her life but not really facing any consequences. She got an MIP (minor in possession) the other day and now her and my parents have decided that she needs to join the military. I think she knows this might help her clean up her act but I'm worried because I don't want her to join and have bad stuff happen to her. I love my sister. Is she going to be ok in the military? Have you ever been in the armed forces and how was it for you as a woman?

How do you make yourself like someone?

This is a person I cannot avoid. I dont dislike them, I feel mostly indifferent toward this person but I get this strong vibe of wanting to be liked from them which I find annoying. I figured if I could like them this would stop, then the problem would be solved.. I hope. (I do not want to be friends w this person, just want to not be annoyed by their weird vibes)

Health

How often do you go to the doctor? per month or year?

It's been four years since for me. I've been experiencing frequent headaches/migraines without an aura, and depression/severe social anxiety. These aren't new problems but the normal methods of coping aren't working anymore. So, now I'm looking into getting insurance.

Stupid summer jobs...

So yesterday I got a call from a guy for a job I applied for and he asked me a bunch of questions and at the end he said, "I'll call you later this week to schedule an interview."

I didn't think much of it at first but if he wanted me for the job wouldn't he have scheduled an interview time when I was talking to him?  Is "I'll call you later to schedule an interview." just a nicer way of saying sorry we don't want you for the job?  Am I overeacting?!

-I organize the dishwasher in the same way every time because I feel it's the most space efficient. My roommate puts dishes willy nilly and it drives me crazy!

Hi everybody!

Could you please recommend me a good website with how-to-answer-tough-job-interview-questions guidance?

I`m sort of stuck on the "Describe a time when you had to work with a difficult person (another student, co-worker, customer, etc.). How did you handle the situation? Is there anything you would have done differently in hindsight?". I understand what to tell about the dealing with difficult person, but not sure about the "what would you have done do differently" part, isn`t there a covert trick? I do not understand if I should directly say about what I have done wrong or tell them smth very diplomatic which would sound more like "not that wrong"? Like when they ask you to tell about your weakness and you answer that you are a perfectionist.

Thanks in advance.

Does anyone work on their feet all day (8+ standing/moving)? If so, what shoes do you wear? Vans and work out sneakers haven't been cutting it.

If you had to, would you rather kiss a frog or a toad?

You go to the store to return something that you paid $9.17 for. The cashier scans the item and your receipt and hands you $17 and some change. You tell him/her that you only paid $9 for the item, but they insist that the register says to give you $17.

Do you keep it? Is it ~wrong~ to keep it?
