What was the last thing of yours that broke down/needed to be fixed?
One of my roommates flushed metal BOLTS down our toilet and we had to rent some tools to properly get them out. BOLTS!
DK/DC: What was the last food/drink item you bought yourself?
I bought [and then made] cake mix! :)
I've just won an auction on ebay but I didn't realise the seller didn't offer international postage. I've sent a message asking if it's possible to change that but if it's not, what should I do? I feel bad for messing them around but I honestly didn't realise. D:
TQC, I am horrible at math, but I have to take either a statistics class or a calculus class to finish my college degree. When I was doing math on a regular basis, I was better at algebra than geometry. Abstract thinking is easier for me than real-life stuff. Based on that, which of those two (either stats or calc) should I try and take?
Hey guys....I need some help.
I'm considering getting a laptop. I have never had a laptop before. People are suggesting that I get a Macbook (for art reasons), I can afford one and I like the way they look but I don't know if it's really for me.
In your opinion what is the best laptop on the market right now?
I will be using it mostly for regular online usage, photo storing, movies, music and art. No gaming. I also need a very good sound system, as far as laptops are concerned.
What are the pros and cons when it comes to Macbook VS other laptops?
What laptop do you have? Do you like it?
If your boss schedules a work meeting but is not willing to pay and it is difficult for you to get into work that day because of busses [and you aren't already working that day]; would you go?
Would your answer change if you were the store's Team Lead?
How oftten do you have work meetings?
is it rude to go to your previous apartment to see if they have any mail for you? I had my tax information sent to the wrong address and I can't get in touch with my previous employers to change the address.
DK/DC What's for lunch?
Does anyone watch The Walking Dead? How much do you hate Dale?
Do you work out? If so, what sort of exercise do you use to stay fit?
I do weights an hour a day, with a split upper/lower routine, and then half an hour of cardio, either walking, elliptical, or bike. The routine changes every couple of months. I was running for several years, but I started to get sore knees. At my age, I'm not sure running is the best way to get cardio.
I have been doing this for over 30 years.
TQC, what kind of facial wash do you use?
Where do you normally buy it? Drugstore? Boutique? Department store? Somewhere else?
What kind of skin do you have? Does it work well for you? And is it expensive?
I'm trying to find a new face wash that I can stick with. I've got combination skin - oily T-zone that gets breakouts, normal/dry cheeks. I use a Clarisonic.
Do any of you guys play Sims 3?
How long do you play ?
Did anyone else think that Hugo was completely overrated and undeserving of its accolades?
Frankly, I thought the film was overly long, boring and failed to capitalize on any of its story hooks. You'd think a movie about missing keys, mysterious automations and mysterious pasts would at least reveal something of interest, if not major substance to the story
My name isn't kree8ive or terribly unusual but I have to spell it for people at least 2 or 3 times a day. I have been considering a pseudonym for the purpose of speaking to people on the phone or at Starbucks and the deli; a name I won't have to spell for people or repeat numerous times. I also don't want to be a Jessica, Michelle, Sarah, etc. (not that there's anything wrong with any of these names, but you get my point). I even considered Princess Consuela Bananahammock, but I wouldn't be able to say it without laughing and I think that's worse than my original problem.
What common/easy things can you just not get the hang of?
I couldn't swallow pills until a few years ago. They would always get stuck in my throat and I'd gag it up. Still happens sometimes I haven't used enough water to take it with. I also can't whistle by blowing out.
My ex-husband's new wife just starting following my twitter feed. I hardly ever use it. In the time I went to ask my son if it was really her, she either deleted her twitter account or she blocked me.
She and my ex both blocked me on facebook months ago.
So weird! Why would she do this?
tbh, I don't really care. I never say anything bad about either of them. Maybe she was just looking for dirt. But why block me and then follow me somewhere else? I wonder if she didn't know I'd get an email...
If you know you're being lame, encourage lameness, and just deserve it, would that you could, if you were in their shoes, be annoyed if you were put in a Facebook restricted list then had to go to your friends to read everything posted to friends of friends?
Does anyone know the average total of tomatoes in the world? I can't find it on Google and this club tends to have an answer for everything.
Is anyone here as big of a LOTR fan as I am?
In my daily life I quote LOTR in situations that a LOTR quote would easily fit into, but no one ever gets them, or if they do, they get it really late and the moment has passed...
What about the newer Doctor Who? From the 9th Doctor and forward, I love those as well (ESPECIALLY David Tennant as the 10th Doctor), what about you?
Dear TQC, the people downstairs are playing music so loudly that it awoke both babies that I am babysitting. They are now both screaming. What should I do to the people downstairs?
Non-srs answers please.
what is the appeal of pugs?
there's a pug that visits a lot, and she's grown on me and I love to hang out with her, but overall I'm a bit baffled by how popular pugs are or the fact that they exist at all. they're sneezy, sinusy, grunting animals who have no dexterity, smarts or skills whatsoever. when we take her out, she gets dozens of comments in venues where other, more awesome (in my opinion) dogs, get zero attention.
what do you think it is about pugs that delights people so much nowadays?
I see car commercials advertising cars that get 30-45 mpg but it doesn't say they're hybrids. Do economy cars these days actually get that kind of mileage or are these hybrids and maybe they're trying to appeal to people who don't necessarily want a hybrid?
How do hybrids work anyway? I know they switch between gas an electric but do you plug it in?
Inspired by a BBC documentary:
Is there nowadays a modern version of the girl group in Anglophone countries? Pussycat Dolls broke up as far as I know, Girls Aloud never made in the US (I don't think they even tried) and are on break anyway, and for all the time I spend on ONTD I cannot come up with a current group.
I put some dresses up on ebay tonight, and I've just had someone send me a message about one of them. She wants to come to my house and try on the dress. Has anyone who have sold anything on ebay ever let a potential bidder come inside their house to inspect said item in person?
Is this a bad idea to let her come over? I don't know this woman (if she is indeed a woman), she could be scoping out the place to rob later, she could want to hurt me etc. Or she could be someone who's truly interested in the dress and if she tries it on and falls in love with it, she might bid more, so I'd get more money.
I'm on a free trial for Amazon Prime. What are some good series and movies I can watch on Amazon Instant that are free for Prime?

say you had a really vivid and detailed dream that an acquaintance of yours died [from a sudden infection of some sort]...how weird would it be to tell them "i had a dream that you died the other night"?
how would you react if someone who wasn't a close friend told you something like that?
Um, I just found two library books that were due in November under my bed. That's a new personal record for me. What is the biggest library fine you've ever encountered?
If I don't have the extra cash yet to pay the fine, should I just ditch them in the drop off, until I can pony up?
