I wake up and live every day like a zombie – miserable at work and then I go home, go to the gym, eat crappy takeout and go to sleep. It just all feels so pointless, like I’m slowly wasting away and not living the full life I’m supposed to live. I want friends, love, a family, and a job or hobby to live for. But I almost feel paralyzed – if I have no interests and don’t want to be around anyone, how do I get my life started? More details inside. [more inside]
I would like to spend more free time working on side projects, but I can't find the focus by the end of a workday. Can you? Tell me how. [more inside]
We are looking for a video that used to be floating around of a couple lip-syncing to the song Christmas in the Northwest. We can't find it online anywhere, and it's driving us crazy!! [more inside]
Typical Northeast US suburban neighborhood. Every night, between 11:30 and 11:50 PM, a bright flash, like from a camera, is visible through the windows of two rooms. [more inside]

Looking for recommendations for where to find knives for knife play.
Post-election, I'm looking for boxes or sets of secular winter holiday cards that have a thought-provoking or supportive message, and also don't have blithe good wishes that I wouldn't be able to send with any sincerity. [more inside]

This will be my first Christmas season without my mother, and I am not sure how to celebrate. [more inside]
I can't believe I'm asking this, but here we are. Sometime between 1990 and 1998 I saw a miniseries on Mystery! or Masterpiece Theater or just PBS and all I remember is that it was about a Scottish atheist who was a detective, or a PI, or something mystery-related? And he points out that men wearing just socks are silly, but women wearing just socks are sexy? Setting was contemporary. It was in reruns when I saw it. What the heck did I see and can I watch it again?
Are there any events in the Americas before 1492 that we are able to date exactly with a reasonable confidence? What's the oldest such event? We know that Julius Caesar was assassinated on exactly March 15th 44 BCE. Do we know any such exact dates in the western hemisphere? [more inside]
My ex texted me yesterday to let me know that one of her cats -- whom I referred to as my step-cats whilst we were together -- was hit by a car yesterday. I'm devastated, though I haven't seen said cat for nearly a year, and I don't know how to process it properly. [more inside]
I am searching for a blog post I read a few weeks ago, and regretfully didn't save a link to. It was written by a pro-life Christian woman, and the topic was essentially how the pro-life and pro-choice crowd on the left, have a lot more in common than we think. [more inside]
I’m seeking suggestions for steamy books, fanfiction, and videos/shows/series because I'm simply awful at picking these myself. Snowflakes divulged in the extended explanation. [more inside]
I've wanted a good paper planner for a while, but can't find one I like. Inspired by the responses in this AskMe question, I think a bullet journal might work for me. I'm looking for YouTube channels or blog posts that outline how to start one from scratch. I'm also looking for any tips you have on maintaining one, or making it look pretty without spending hours on it. Thanks! [more inside]
I like salt. Why do certain types make me sick? [more inside]
It’s a simple question, but one I’ve been thinking a lot about recently. As I’ve grown, what I want out of life has changed dramatically. As a very goal-oriented person who takes a long-term view, I’m struggling to understanding how to set good life goals given that I know my perspectives will shift with time. [more inside]
I'm helping a friend design a hand puppet out of a material that can be used with hook-and-loop fasteners (also known as Velcro). I remember helping my 3rd grade teacher cover a bulletin board with a smooth, low-pile, loopy fabric that velcro hooks would stick to; that fabric would be perfect. I remember it being pretty common in other classrooms in the 90's. What is this fabric called? [more inside]
We need your best lefty charities for our Christmas lists! [more inside]
My friend bought a mysterious antique thing. It looks like a cage, only it has no top, just sides and a bottom. The front is hinged and can open forward. It looks like this. Please do tell what you think it is.
