People with uteruses who are on birth control/have had birth control in the past - what methods have you used and which were the ones that gave you the least cramping? I'm currently about a year away from having to remove my IUD and I'm looking for a new method. I hate condoms, because honestly, I can tell the difference and it feels weird, I have trouble with a daily pill even with a reminder because I go to take them and then get distracted, I've tried Depo-Provera but I had one shot, started bleeding, took another shot three months later, and bled for a year straight after that without anymore shots and would like to avoid it, and I'm on Mirena now and am in my fourth year and while I love it because I don't actually bleed anymore every month and I can have sex without worry, the cramps I get twice a month are enough to send me curled up on the couch crying. I'm considering Implanon, but I'm wondering if there's a maximum weight limit for it.

DK/DC/TMI - do you have a tumblr? If so, what is it, so I can check it out and maybe follow you?

UFO Monday poll

Space aliens are fond of anal probes, some encounters have stated. Why do you suppose they probe people's buttock area?

They're very curious about our digestive system
It's for their kid's science project (3,000 years into the future, the standards for academics are astounding)
These aliens are Japan from the future. They travel back in time to get their kink on. It's not probing devices, it's tentacles
Alien fraternity. They get all liquored up and fly down here and do something stupid with a lesser species. Like humans cow tipping

From what you can see from reported encounters and what you've seen in sci-fi movies, what do you suppose space aliens are here for?

To bring us peace and knowledge
To conquer us
To take our women
To take our DNA
To take our gold (or other resources)
To take our poop (seriously, stop with all the anal stuff already)
To bring us religion (Scientology)
To eat us (To Serve Man)
To have sex with us ( and make hybrid babies)
To study us
To bring us back to their planet as zoo animals

Do you believe in space aliens/flying saucers, etc?

Not sure

For those of you who don't believe in space visitors or anything that flies in the face of scientific discoveries and reality, what are you more likely to believe exists?

My apartment is way too hot. I have radiators that I can't lower the heat on. Even with the window cranked open in cold-ish weather. Last night I tossed and turned all night.

Would a humidifier help the heat situation?

I tried saying something to my super but he just says that in the fall and spring just keep the windows open...

In your personal opinion; do you think a wedding is the kind of event that if somebody is in a long-term relationship, and is given an invitation, their partner should be invited also, or no?

Why do you think U.S. fiction from 1980 to 2010 is important to literary and cultural history, and why should it be read?

What do you think they'll teach us if we read them 100 years from now in 2113?

Edit: Sorry if this sounds like a homework question! :S I've just been reading a lot and trying to convince my friends it's not just "something to pass the time", but can actually teach us.

Dear TQC,

Where is the weirdest place that you have ever found your lost keys?  Or another small, lost object?  We have been hunting for this set of keys for over two hours, and I have run out of ideas for places to look!

What's the best April Fool's joke/prank you've seen? The worst?

I'm kinda disappointed with the UK media - I'm sure there used to be bigger attempts at April Fools jokes. Though there is quite a lot of stuff going down today, so maybe they're just being respectful.

sick of sore throats!

Do you still have your tonsils?

If not, how did the removal go? Mine have started giving me trouble and I'm wondering what the healing process will be like at 25, vs if I'd had it done as a kid :\

I want to add someone on facebook but I also want to immediately add them to a list which has certain privacy settings.
Is there any way to do this or do I just have to hope I catch it the second she accepts my friend request?

Treats for work

It’s my turn to bring in food at work. What should I bring? Things other people have brought include ice cream novelties, cookies, brownies, chicken wings, cheese and crackers, cupcakes, and candy. I’m working nights, so breakfast stuff like doughnuts doesn’t work that well. I don’t necessarily have to bring in something different, but I would like to outdo other people. I’m a good baker, so I could make something (e.g., a cheesecake or chocolate chip cookies), or I could buy something at a store or restaurant.

What foods would you want someone to bring in?

So I posted on a facebook page about donating some of my breastmilk, and for whatever reason it showed up on my timeline and my extended family is all EWWW WE DON'T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT BREASTMILK. They're stupid obviously, but how do I prevent this activity from showing up in the future so I don't have to hear dumb comments? I tried to go to my page and remove the activity, but I don't even see it there.

ETA: Nevermind, I figured it out. Instead can we talk about why people get squicked by human breastmilk but not cow milk?

Lend me your cold busting secrets!

So I have a cold--coughing, sore throat, chest congestion--and it's been hanging on for well over a week. I NEED to be better by Saturday or I will be very sad.

Got any secret family tips that google hasn't turned up for me?

I am also stuffed up but I attribute that to allergies. I only mention it on the off chance an allergy guru swings through.

im in a culinary school.
tomorrow we have a "kd challenge" where we have a bunch of ingredients and we have to incorporate kd in the mix (kraft dinner)
we cannot do a "spiced up" macaroni and cheese dish and we have to use only the ingredients provided (various veggies, meats, cheese etc) we do not have to use the cheese mix, but we can.
this reminds me of "chopped" but with kd as the secret ingredient.  fun.
anyway, ive already made up my recipe. just curious to see what you guys would do?
im not going to list all the ingredients listed, so just use your imagination.

Did you ever bring a pet home that you weren't allowed to? What was the reaction?

If you're married, how did you celebrate your first year anniversary as a married couple?

I've been married for almost a year (but we've been together for almost 10 years, living together for 6 and we have three kids) so I don't know if I should make a big deal out of this or not.

What's the last good surprise you had?
What's on your to-do list for tomorrow?
