TQC, maybe you know this. What's a name for a European blackbird? It's a 3-letter word.

You're at a nice restaurant and you're having a little problem with your waitress. Which of these things would make you penalize her, either in lowering her tip or complaining to the manager? Anything you don't check, it's assumed that you'd just brush it off and tip her the requisite amount. I know some of you live in countries where tipping just isn't done. Just assume that you're in America, and know that waitstaff depend on that tip as part of their wages
Are you generally a happy person?
2. If you buy ground coffee in the vacuum packed "brick" form, how do you store the coffee after you've opened it?
Unrelated: are you getting a flu shot this year? Do you always? Never?
A product is tested as being extremely unsafe for consumption by a reputable university. Hysteria ensues within the media/public. A few weeks later, the company that produces the product releases recent tests done by an independent, albeit FDA- approved laboratory that refutes the university's study and shows its product is actually safe.
Who do you believe?
Can the company get in deep legal trouble for releasing a falsified study related to human safety?
I want all the things!
I really wish_____________.
My team and I were considering using Kickstarter to keep my IT startup running until the service is launched and turning a profit through ads (I've been funding it out of pocket / from savings) but since we're related to social media they wouldn't allow it even though we're not a social media network ourselves, I contacted them for clarification before posting anything. Igg makes no such exclusion though.
I already found and contributed to some really interesting things there but they seem a lot smaller than Kickstarter so I guess we'll have to work a lot harder to promote. Probably going to do it though.
Any other startup stories?
Should I get one, or do they prefer to have a playmate?
They will be indoor cats since we live in a flat. My fiance and I both work so they would be left alone between 6.30am-2pm 3 days a week.
Will 2 kittens be too much hard work? Or would be horrible to leave a kitten on her own for 8 hours a day?
Also any tips/advice about training/bringing up kittens would be appreciated. I've had a kitten before but I was 6 years old so my parents did a lot of the work. And that cat is (still going strong at 19 years old now) an outdoor cat so any advice on keeping kitties entertained?
I recently bought a gift set there (it is Benefit brand and contains a cheek stain, a powder, a highlight cream and a lip gloss) and it gave me a huge rash. I don't have super sensitive skin & I have used benefit before but I guess this one just doesn't work. I want to return it because it was expensive but it is used (only twice). Will they take it back?
I ASKED for a sample but the girl was pretty useless.
The Sephora is a new location and the staff sucks. Make up is one of my favourite things and I am a pretty decent Sephora customer but lately I have been so unimpressed that I switched back to MAC simply because I like the customer service better.
dk/dc: Dark or milk chocolate?
If yes, what are you writing about?
If no, would you rather have the ability to fly, read minds, or talk to animals? Why?
Is there you've recently taken care of that's helping you sleep better at night?
One lender says we will only qualify for an FHA, which means less down payment, but a monthly PMI insurance that can run us $400/month. Another lender offered us a conventional loan, but they want a huge down payment. The FHA monthly mortgage would be $2900, while conventional is $2550.
Am I missing something here?
