I've used bath poufs my whole life, pretty much, but I'm wondering if there's something out there that's better for daily cleaning and exfoliating in the shower. Any suggestions? What do you use?
What would you do if your family were opposed to your relationship with your SO? Does how you would respond depend on why they were opposed?
I'm currently growing it and bored with bright red hair. Not that you can't grow your hair, that happens anyway. However I've not had it cut in a while because I want it to get long and if I got to the hair dressers I know I'll go crazy and cut it all off again. So to relieve my boredom should I dye it half black and half red? I'm talking Cruella DeVille style.
Should I dye my hair black and red. Cruella DeVille style?
Hey, tqc! Can any of you recommend a dedicated word processor? I want something portable with a relatively large screen (more than one line of text) that's free from even the possibility of distractions. Any suggestions? Or can someone suggest a better place to ask this question?
Alternatively, what is the last type of cereal that you ate? Mine was brown rice crispies in soymilk with sweetener all over. Delicious.
what makes you feel alive?
Where are you favorite places to online shop?
I really enjoy forever 21 and modcloth.
How do you feel about your current SO's level of personal grooming? I'm not talking about basic hygiene, I'm talking about primping, tweezing, painting, shaving, perming - the less essential (or maybe very essential) details of one's overall appearance.
What are some musts/must nots for detailed grooming for a potential SO? What bothers you or where do you draw the line?
What successes do you count as defining in your life?
What failures do you count as defining in your life?
eta: I mean failure by your own account, no harm or insult meant. I know failure is subjective, so feel free to skip that question.
How long would you have to date someone monogamously to know you wanted to spend the rest of your life with them? (I've been dating someone monogamously 4 years, we've both been in agreement about marriage for about 3 years, and we've gotten through plenty of struggles and survived - I'm looking back on this glad that we've gotten this far, knowing that it won't always be easy, but they're the one (barring extreme extreme circumstances)
If any of these are IDK/IDC (of if you want to answer this as well! :D): What is your favorite memory?
How long is a furlong? how far is a league?
Odin challenged me to a swimming race. Loki designed the course. Ok...It was a dream

Why do I feel so creepy removing dead people from my Facebook friends list? Is it fucked up in some way?
Can someone please explain this to
a suffering idiot me? I am completely baffled :(
You saw a shirt for $97. You didn’t have the cash, so you borrowed $50 from your mum and $50 from your dad = $100. You bought the shirt, and had $3 change. You gave your dad $1 and your mum $1 and kept the other $1 for yourself. Now you owe your mum $49 and your dad $49. 49+49 = 98 + your $1 = 99. Where is the missing $1?
My genius brother-in-law said, "The wording is weird" but would not elaborate further. WHY DOESN'T THIS ADD UP?
dk/dc: Anybody home sick? I am. What are you doing to make yourself feel better?
I'm applying for jobs to start in the summer. What happens if I get offered two?
I don't really want to turn one down and alienate them. It's a small town and that attitude could stick.
Did you know that sticking Q-Tips inside your ear is dangerous?
Do you stick Q-Tips in your ear?
TQC, does anyone ever show up at your house unannounced?
do you care if they do?
is there anyone you would give a pass to for doing this?
Women of TQC, are you a feminist? Why?
Can a short woman (let's say 5'1") wear a maxi skirt or dress?
I'm fond of that style, but I feel like it would make me look even shorter than I am. Though I suppose that isn't necessarily a bad thing. What do you think?
Who are you comfortable with seeing you naked, besides your SO?
The only person I don't have an issue being naked around is my SO. I don't even want my own mother to ever see me naked. This is different from the rest of my family, who would probably walk around naked if it weren't illegal.
Where can I find women's dressy shoes that won't hurt my feet? I want to be able to walk at least a mile in them without feeling pain. My search so far has been unsuccessful.
Should I cultivate the persona of a heartless bitch? What are the pros and cons of this?
Does anyone here do something other than shaving/waxing to remove hair from their legs (Nair etc)? Can you recommend something for me? My wedding is in 5 days and I want to get my legs silky smooth, but it always seems like I end up missing bits.
Edit: Good point. I won't Nair this close to my wedding. I'll just suck it up and shave. Still, keep the recommendations coming, as I hate shaving.
Did you know you can watch Bettelegeuse and Fight Club side by side?
and both movies sync perfectly with Slayer 1988 and forward albums? Pantera? Acid Bath? Eazy E?
Any other Beetlegeuse and Fight Club Cephalonomancy syncing that you really enjoy?
Lazy American Philosophy 101, Lap, dog, get it, lapdog?
I hate working! I enjoy smoking cigarettes and doing Rx drugs! The government pays me to sit there and do nothing and sometimes I go to the gym! Other times I cook cookies and brownies with excrement and semen and serve them to friends and guests! I love America! What do I say to my damned foreigner friend that has to work minimum wage jobs and his family is borderline homeless, when he complains that I am a tax leach? I should tell him to go screw himself right? I am the RIGHT one in American philosophy, and since he is a god damned boater, he is WRONG!
I know I am Right, but I want better arguments, I do not have to work, I blocked his phone number so that you can help me get a really good argument for that America Love It Or Leave It god damned foreigner!
-philosophy is full of fart huffers, do you have the wrong community? no? aren't you supposed to be in shitty_advice, asswipes?-
LOL, the sarcasm and irony are entirely over the heads of fart huffers
what should Lazy American Philosophy 101 be about?
Have you lately heard about the condemning of "the friend zone," esp. in feminist circles? I disagree that only men claim to have been "friend zoned" and that it is therefore inherently misogynistic. What do you think? If you're a woman, would you say you have experienced being "friend zoned"?
Should alcoholic beverages be required to display nutritional information like calories and sugar content on the packaging?
I recently got accepted to both Queen Mary London and Trinity Rome for study abroad next semester. I have heard good reviews for both.
I am an International Comparative Studies major, with a film certificate, and a minor in Chinese (I have already spent extensive time in China). Admittedly, a high class problem, but I am stressing out about this so hard.
Where do you think I should go and why? I am so conflicted.
What is your favorite thing about your car, besides that it takes you places?
What CDs/tapes do you have in your car right now?
Do you change your own oil/do your own maintenance, or do you take it to a shop to be done?
Do any of you drive a vehicle that takes diesel? What kind of mileage do you get?
What would you do if you were a part time sales associate at a retail store and you have heard multiple times about an assistant manager gossiping/talking shit on you to other sales associate?
This was somebody's FB status just now:
"just a little side note, if i see any of these tube feeding bride morons walking down the street, i am going to punch them in the face...lets see how that makes their wedding pictures look...assholes"
What IS this?
What is a "feeding tube bride"??
Related: What kind of bride were you? What kind would you like to be?
I've been a second time AND knocked up bride. I would like to be a Gold Rush Bride.
my work decided i should give a few on the job-trainingsessions at the other side of the country tomorrow and the day after.
I'm basically ok with it. Gotta stay in a luxurious hotel at their costs. However, since I'll be going alone, this also means i have to eat dinner in the restaurant solo.
I suffer from social anxiety and this is kind of a trigger for me.
So, should I go to the restaurant and at eat there alone(not my expense) or should a grab a Mac-whatever at my own expense and eat it in my hotelroom?
If I do go, what can I do to make it less anxious and more fun? (SRS/Non-SRS)
Would you go and eat by yourself in a restaurant?
UK-dwellers of TQC!
I am editing (not professionally) a short story written by somebody from Manchester and am wondering about a few spellings. For instance, my US-minded spell check wants to change "reveller" to "reveler" and "flamingoes" to "flamingos." I checked a few reputable dictionaries and they say that both spellings are acceptable, but I want to check with some actual Brits.
Are "reveller" and "flamingoes" the more common spellings in the UK? Would you write "candyfloss" as one word, or "candy floss" as two?
Also, is a settee a mostly British term? I had never heard of it until reading this story, but apparently a lot of places online sell them.
If I told you it is irrefutably true that there exists a set of circumstances where all the satiric wit in the world isn't worth one pure asshole statement, what would you say?
What would be a good middle name for Zoey Howell?
Have you ever gotten "caught in the act"? How did you react? Were you mortified?
So I want to out this character in this story thing I'm working on. He's a high school-aged boy who's single and is pretty meticulous in not giving off any hints, is closeted to pretty much everyone, but (maybe) someone gets hold of some concrete evidence that goes ~viral~ among the campus?
This feels like the easiest thing to plot out, but for some reason I've figured out everything else in this subplot but this part. Any ideas?
I have an interview this Friday at a young, hip, cutting-edge company.
What should I wear? The look I'm going for is fun but put together.
I was thinking maybe a button-up shirt with a fun, but not-too-loud print with dark skinny jeans. Thoughts?
I just got my acceptance into Pottermore....how terrible is it really?
Don't Know/Don't Care:
How was your day today?
Are you a regular user of tobacco products?
how old were you when you started?
So I'm going down to North Carolina to visit college friends in early May. Rather than trying to fit everyone I want to see in at separate times, I've decided to attempt a potluck type thing at one of my friends' houses, so they can all come, we can all hang out and eat yummy foods. One of the girls I invited (whom I'm really good friends with) just saw who else I'm planning on inviting and said, "So, uh... I don't like those people and don't really want to come." I'm trying to figure out if I should just tell her to suck it up and come anyway, or if I should agree to meet her for coffee or whatever on her own. What would you do, TQC? And would you be upset?
What is the last thing you got really excited about?
Dk/dc: If you're in school, how's it going?
The student government association at my school voted to support adding gender identity and gender expression to the nondiscrimination clause in the school constitution. It's just a first step, but yay!
Do you believe in heaven or an afterlife? Why or why not?
If you were having a BBQ, what kinds of side dishes would you make? Recipes would be appreciated.
this dude i've been crushing on since forever and i finally hooked up this weekend. however, four more weeks until summer vacation. he's going to michigan, i'm going to china and then germany for a whole semester and then taking the next semester off, not even probably coming back to nyc. this means i won't see him again for a whole year after four weeks probably.
should i still go for it?
What are your favorite sea creatures?
What has got you worried?
What are you procrastinating about?
One of my grad school professors, for some unknown reason, keeps assigning group work that needs to be done outside of class. It's been a few weeks of this and there's no particular reason for it, which is annoying enough but...every week, I'm the one hunting down the group members to get stuff done.
I just realized it's midnight and neither of them sent me what they said they would.
What would you do in this situation? We have another month or so of classes and presumably group work.
