Do you know any old people who often make racist/sexist or other similar types of offensive remarks?
What do you do when they say these things? Do you ever try to get them to change, or stop?
I was in the car with my driving instructor the other day and we were driving behind a very slow car, and he went on for about 15 minutes about "Ohhhh, we're stuck behind a woman, I HATE women drivers they're all always so slow or they get really angry quickly. The worst is old women! This must be a really old woman because she is SUCH a bad driver"
It was so awkward because like...I'm a woman. Idk. I didn't know what to say. When we overtook them we both looked and it was a man driving the car. My instructor was like "Oh. LOL."
This was inspired by the antics of my 7-year-old cousin. On any given day, he's caught cursing like a sailor, spitting at people, telling random strangers he's going to "shove a lizard dick" in their asses, and from about age 4, he's been allowed to carry around lighters and fireworks unsupervised. He's burned himself, but luckily, hasn't had any serious injuries. Today, his mother told him to stop lighting firecrackers because no one was watching him, and he screamed, "You're so fucking annoying, you bitch!" She just shrugged it off and watched him light several more.
I'm generally against spanking, but he needs an ass spanking badly.
i can't find my top coat and am hoping the base coat will do the job.
Inspired by my friend's stupid boyfriend.
I'm 19. He's 24.
And how do/did you eat yours?
Usual style or did you add stuff to it?
Yes! [Just had one a couple minutes ago actually.]
This one was the usual style [Hershey's plain chocolate, graham cracker, regular-though a little stale- marshmallow] though I've had some with Reese's which were delicious.
Which have had the worst?
Transformers 1, 2, 3?
Who is your favourite Autobot/Decepticon?
What other 80's cartoons do you think Hollywood will pillage and plunder next? which would you like to actually see on the big screen?
(If you're single...IDK post a picture of yourself and one thing you love about yourself?)
I think my brain just melted a little from watching the Miss USA video on this question.
dk/dc: have you ever seen a shark in the wild? Was it scary?
Is 2 am too late to make grilled cheese?
she has total disregard for authority and is rude beyond belief.
she talks back, tells her parents to shut up and go to Hell. (They yell at her and threaten to ground her but then let her do whatever she wants anyways)
Any accomplishments you wish to share?
Right now Im going with hashbrowns...because I just threw some up and almost passed out because they were so thick in my throat and slow coming out that I could not fucking breathe.
Any tips on how to raise a puppy? She's my first. My 5-year-old son is already super in love with her.
My freezer keeps turning off, and won't turn back on again until everything is melted. Grr.
I recently drove my car about 500 miles round trip (probably just a tad less). There was about an hour's rest time between the trip there and the trip back.
About 60 miles from home, my check engine light came on. I check my oil- normal level. My gas cap was on tightly (a problem with Saturns). My oil temp was reading at a normal level, RPMs were at a normal rate.
What's wrong with my car? :(
(In all seriousness, I am leaving to get the codes read in a couple hours- let's hope it's an easy fix!)
What's the last stupid thing you've done?
What would happen if Hitler, with the same policies, opinions and intentions, came to power today? If WW2 had never happened, meaning we had no prior knowledge and no precedent of the magnitude of what he had planned, how far do you think he would get? Who would stop him and how?
I realize today he'd get squashed like a bug, but it's an interesting intellectual exercise, and I wondered what greater minds than mine would make of it.
EDIT TO ADD: I didn't ponder the ramifications of WW2 not having happened - I suppose growing up in the world as it is, I took for granted how much of histroy was shaped by its events!
Do you wash a new comforter before using it?
Do people you know tend to hide their illnesses from their families and loved ones?
How do you go about telling them that illness isn't something to be ashamed of, and that being open about it can help them?
Also, so far I've been to three make up places that keep trying to sell me a color that looks awful on me. It makes my face a bold yellow color when no other body part is. Is there a reason for that?
Would feta cheese on a frozen sausage pizza taste good? It's just low on cheese and that's all we seem to have.
I'm new! I've been lurking for quite some time, posting a couple replies here and there, but I figured I needed a proper post of my own. I've had a lot of spare time the past couple of days, so the pace of this community has kept me entertained and distracted - thank you all for that.
I'm going to give a huge rant here about all the shit happening in my life which you are welcome to ignore or comment on as you see fit, but as per the community rules, I'll throw a question here:
- What is a fantastic TV show that you're obsessed with? I like things like Criminal Minds, The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, etc. I'm not a big "fantasy" fan - things with vampires, or things not set in "modern times" don't usually hold my interest. I'm also a HUGE reality TV fan. I'm looking for a new show to tide me over until Big Brother starts!
( Collapse )
I see plenty of people experience it, even if I'm looking at someone they will bring their eyes to meet mine as if they just know.
How do you think that is possible? intuition? sixth sense? Something less elaborate?
Will you provide us with a dilemma/problem/situation, etc. where you need us to decide who is right (not guilty) or wrong (guilty)?
LET TQC JUSTICE PREVAIL!
do you think it would even be worth it to apply? i am a fast learner, i'm a people person, i love chatting and helping people, and the owner kinda knows me(at last he knows my face). should i send them my resume?
i'm also nervous 'cause i'd feel like fraud working there. i'm 100% a spectator and part of me is like, what business do i have working there? my friends actually PLAY the sport. is that crazy?
Does anyone know of that phrase that people use to describe a situation where two people are walking towards each other, they each sidestep in the same direction to avoid bumping into one another, realize that didn't help, and continue awkwardly sidestepping until one person finally holds still?
Who else has a key to your home/apartment?
I have a hard time not getting mad at the hoarder but I also used to live with somebody who was a borderline hoarder so I have a bias against them despite the fact that it's a mental illness.
Will you comment with a specific situation and let TQC dictate your future?
if one & not the other why not??? hmmmmm????
Is it inappropriate for me to express my dislike to my boyfriend?
It was godawful. But louched really pretty. If I EVER try it again I'm going with near-frozen absinthe and the goddamn sugar cube.
All this is to say, what was your last "great idea," and did it turn out like you hoped or was it a grand disaster?
I think mine is "Nicholas and Alexandra" by Robert K. Massie. It has some incorrect information, like the "fact" that Alexandra would spy on Nicholas during meetings with the Duma, and that Rasputin wrote that letter saying the family would be murdered in two years, but considering it was the first Romanov book written and that it was written when Russia was still a Communist country, the amount of information collected for it is amazing.
Math 02 was June-July
Math 03 July-August
Ok well Math 02 is the devil. I'm taking it online (the only way its offered in the summer) and i basically have to teach myself (duh, right?) BUT the worst part is, I am HORRIBLE at math, and everytime i get something wrong, the program sends me backwards, and wont let me go forward until i get it right, i'm getting NOWHERE fast, literally. Then, Math 03 got cancelled. So I HAVE to go back in the Fall anyway.
SOOooo...do I take an F in Math 02 and focus on my 21 other credits this summer? (y/y?)

Inspired by my own evolving views on life as of the past two years or so.
If so, how much of a pain was it to get going again?
"I dont have too many problems with recreational use of marajuana, as long as it does not because a problem or dependency. But if your spending all your money on drugs, to the point where you need help to feed yourself or kids then I think you need something besides just government food assistance"
"So in other words, if you have money to spend on weed you should have money to spend on groceries first?"
Whats your opinion on this?
Are you for or against drug testing for assistance and why?
Due to accidental exposure I can't get "Born This Way" out of my head.
What can I do????
Do you mix your flavors?
I like strawberry watermelon, grape lemonade or cherry lime
Did you know there was a punctuation mark created to infer sarcasm or irony⸮ Apparently it didn't really take off..
*edited for improper syntax*
My friend is having a baby. I'm writing her card right now and I want to put a special quote inside. Suggestions?
(Some background, its going to be a girl, both the mother and the father are in to Harry Potter, gaming, outdoorsy stuff, etc. The father is my boyfriends best friend, the mother is a good friend of mine)
dk/dc what was the most exciting thing to happen to you today?
our air conditioning got fixed at work! hurray!
Where's the worst place to get sunburn? How about razorburn?
Brought to you by the excruciating sunburn I have next to my armpits, RIGHT where my bra strap meets the cups, so the seam is rubbing directly on it. I want to die rn. D:
DK/DC: What's the last thing you watched on Netflix, if you have it?
( Collapse )
Pls no stalking with the names, kthnx.
I know nothing about coffee because i rarely drink it. But there's some leftover in the kitchen, probably from yesterday afternoon. It's in a metal insulated thermos-style pot, not a regular glass one.
Would it be gross if i reheated it in the microwave?
I really can't overstate how little i know about coffee :/
Do you use My Fitness Pal?
Is Biotin (sp?) (aka the hair/skin/nails vitamins) really worth the hype?
Where were you when your water broke?
I'm terrified of being at like..the store and it breaking all over the place.
DK/DC/Not a mom...
What word do you hate?
Did you tell your parents after you lost your virginity?
Were you, or did you become, reeeeeally attached to the person you lost it to? To the same crazy irrational extent that every TV character who loses their virginity seems to be?
I play cribbage at a cribbage club every Tuesday. I also play Pinochle with my parents. My favorite card game is probably Pinochle.
lolol i'm like really late on this one
what supplies would i need?
what would you do if you heard someone on their bike with either of those 'bells'?
My mom is going through a rough time and she's about to have her 2nd year smoke-free anniversary. I want to get her something for it but she probably wouldn't want jewelry. She's sort of hippie-esque and loves her grandson more than anyone. What do I get for herrrr? (Already buying flowers)
Thanks all for your input and calming me down a little. Had my gallbladder out this morning. Clocked in at 630 AM for a 730 procedure, and out by 1030 and home by 11:15A. They said I might not have an appetite for a day, maybe a week, but IDK what they're talking about - I scarfed down two chicken sandwiches earlier. Sore in places, but overall doing well. :-) And yay, no open cut! No complications either.
But oh yeah, my question - what's the best way to sneak up on my nephew and show him my incisions? He's 12 and doesn't want to see them, but I want to traumatize him. Any suggestions? :)
( Collapse )
What is the grossest bug you have ever come across?
Do you have a bicycle?
Does it have a bell?
Do you USE it?
Today I was riding my bike down a busy street and I had the light and some lady and her pre-teen boys were scooting against the light and I had to yell "Heads up! HEADS UP!" at her twice to get her to look my direction and see that she was in putting us both in danger. I have a bell. But it's just easier to yell. Why DO we have bike bells anyway? When for the most part, we can just say, "Oh your left" or whatever.
Is it just because the brriiiinnggg-briiinnnggg is so darned cute?
An acquaintance of mine claims she interviewed with Marc Ecko personally and will be working with him directly. I'm a little skeptical.
What's the best piece of advice you ever gave? Provide context if it's necessary or entertaining.
At the moment I have silly things that people do for no good reason except to amuse themselves and strangers they've never met, like Nyan cat guy, and extreme ironing.

Inspired by the fact that I just downloaded "The Winter's Months" by Rob Scallon on a name-your-price system. All you people that are always looking for new music, check him out! A hell of a guitarist/multiinstrumentalist.
Most of the time, I just sit there and hope it'll be short.
