Have you ever had a picture or video go viral? What was the story, and how did it get picked up?
I took a picture of a woman holding up a sign that said "I SKIPPED CHEMO TO SEE CHIPPER" at the Braves game on Sunday, tweeted/tumbl'd/facebooked it, and it got picked up by multiple news sources! She got tickets behind home plate for the next home game--I'm hoping she'll get to meet the man himself!

hey tqc :)
so i was on the pill for 3 weeks and stopped (because of crazy mood swings). i usually gain weight on the pill but i didnt notice any changes this time. its been 2 weeks since i've stopped, and ive noticed that ive gained weight. ive also been breaking out after i stopped. do you think these could be an "after" side effect of the pill?

Bank of America started doing mobile deposits - yay! Their website is being really vague though - after you upload the photos of your check, "you'll get a confirmation and instructions on what to do with the check." What does that mean, TQC? Am I going to have to mail the check in? Because I'd rather drive down the street than waste a stamp.

How would you approach quitting your job if you were in a similar scenario:

1. Your boss is swamped with work and you'd really leave him/her high and dry for awhile if you quit
2. A new person would require months of training to take over your position
3. Basically you'd be creating a ton of extra work for people to cover your job for awhile

ETA: Also, if you are quitting without having a new job in place first, what is a nice way of saying you are leaving because you just can't stand the work anymore?

Can you think of any books meant for toddlers or very young children that have a geeky bent to them? I'm not looking for chapter books or novels: just those little short books that parents read to their babies before the babies really learn to read on their own.

I already know about My Little Geek ABC Book, but I'm looking for more ideas. My nephew's going to be around 1 year old come Christmastime, and his parents are brilliant geeky people, so I'd like to incorporate both of those things into my present for him. (Please note that I'm not posting the dreaded "what do I get for ____?" question because I don't think my nephew's going to care very much about the actual present, no matter what I get him.)

What are cheat days?  What if all week there are cheat foods? Is all week a cheat week?  What if you have a cheat day and then the next day someone surprises you with your favorite food?  How do cheat days work when you are trying to lose weight?  Does the body know when it is cheat day and make the foods negative calories?  Do I need to make a pack with the devil for cheat days to work?  Where is my contract?

Honestly, if someone you've been texting or talking to for a short time loses interest or had none to begin with would you want them to stop texting you and you get the hint or would you want them to tell you flat out they aren't interested.

I am reading The Wind in the Willows for children lit and there is this part in the story where Toad, Mole and Rat chase down a horse to pull their cart.  Does that sound like the horse was a slave?  The rest of the time reading I just kept thinking about the poor horse and how he didn't even want to entertain their dumb trip. 

Have you read The Wind in the Willows?  Did you like it?

So I haven't bought a new game console in years, when is the best time to get a good deal? I have my eye on the 3DS XL, but $186 is the cheapest I can find it and that still seems too high for me. Are prices typically better during black friday - December?

Alternatively, where's the best place to buy refurbs at? I'm assuming most places won't have them right now since it's so new, but I'm looking to get one in the next 6 months or so.

If someone was convicted of a crime before the widespread use of DNA technology, should the inmate have the right to demand that the evidence be tested now to prove innocence?

Pros - Could potentially clear a lot of innocent men.
Cons - Would be very expensive and clog up the system.

TQC,

I filled up my lounge room with balloons for my hubbys birthday and the little bastards keep popping randomly and scaring me.

Any tips on keeping them from popping until he comes home in an hour?

Alternatively, I have a sharpie and want to draw silly things on them, suggestions?

Also, any dessert suggestions? I am a decent baker but I CANNOT for the life of me make a pie. I'm hoping my aunt comes to my rescue with a pumpkin pie or 3, but if she doesn't offer what could I make?
