What's the greatest thing you have ever found on the street or in the trash?
I just found some records, including a jazz 78 by a band featuring a very young Charles Mingus on bass.
I would really like to improve my grammar skills. I try so hard but the rules seem too arbitrary, infinite, and subjective. I've always said that people who are good in grammar must have great memory. Can anyone recommend how to go about improving my grammatical skills?
Things I'd Love
-Program or software recommendations
-Websites (free or paid, I would love to find like a Pearson Lab for grammar)
If it has tests and answers I would be ecstatic.
Is anyone here familiar with allergy testing/food allergies?
I had a skin prick test as a child and the only things that reacted (4 on a scale of 1-5 I think) were wheat and dust but I never really had any allergy issues, I'd get a big hive on my jawline if I ate like 352532 butter tarts or something. But now I'm getting hives on a daily basis and I can't really figure out what it's from, and I feel nauseated sometimes. Do allergies develop/get stronger as your age? Is there a more definitive allergy test for food allergies? Or should I just try restricting wheat/gluten and see if I feel better. I'm a snacker & don't do many scheduled full meals so I haven't really noticed any patterns of what might be triggering this.
What are you allergic to?
I'm getting my wisdom teeth taken out on Monday and I'm a bit curious.
How many of you have had your wisdom teeth removed?
How long did it take for you to recover?
I'm sooooooooooooooo excited and I just have to share it with you here. I had an interview today and I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So tell me TQC, When is the last time you got some really amazing news????
Does your cellphone have a password so other people can't use it?
If so, is this because you're just careful or because you know someone who likes to go snooping?
What was your favorite movie as a kid?
Do you still love it?
Do you have a favourite historical character, or event, or time period? Who/what, and why?
Have you ever become completely obsessed with a historical character?
Got any favourite history books or good historical (non-fantasy) fiction to recommend (esp medieval period)?
Which old fashion trends would you like to see come back in style?
Which current trends would you like to see never again?
I'm trying to find an old friend I went to high school with on Facebook. She has a really common name. I can't seem to work out if there's a way to search for "Jane Doe who went to XYZ High School" instead of just looking through a million pages of Jane Doe. Does anyone know if this is possible? I tried googling her name + high school name and nothing came up. :/
I'm going to Rome for 3 days!
As TQC is the best travel planner I know, what stuff should I definitely not miss?
I joined Fitocracy and downloaded Zombies Run! today. I was just wondering if Zombies Run! would be okay for someone who is 315 pounds and hasn't worked out in two years due to massive depression, and if you can change your settings on Fitocracy to private so nobody can see your posts?
DK/DC - What show did you grow up with that you really miss because it's not on air anymore? I'm currently marathoning through Stargate SG-1, Boy Meets World, Gilmore Girls, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Where do you like to buy your seeds and plants online?
