The other day, I was driving home from work and an ambulance was coming up from behind. I didn't pull over because it didn't seem useful, a nearby motorcyclist chewed me out through my open window: "You're supposed to pull over when there's an ambulance!!" Due to the not-so-snowflakey details inside, I'm struggling to understand what the right thing to do would've been. [more inside]
Does this exist? I'm looking for the ability to sit/stand at my desk. However, because I have cabinets over/attached to the desk itself, and the desk cannot be moved from the corner it is in, I can't get an accessory to hold two monitors that needs to be clamped to something.

I've had a stalker for about 4 years. I'm not physically afraid of this person, but this is a nuisance in terms of intrusive, unwanted phone calls, texts, emails, social media. I am just so done with this person not respecting my right to peace in my own home. How do I "block" landline/cell phone when Verizon tells me "no can do?" Details after the fold. [more inside]

I'm looking for the old time name of a job that I know one of my ancestors did for several generations. It's a weird sounding name for a person that makes sheep gates out of hazel or willow hurdles. I knew it a couple of years ago and have since lost it from my memory and bookmarks. The name was obscure enough that I had no inkling that it was a 'sheepgate maker'(portable sheep fencing) until I googled it and found a reference in a piece or blog about Victorian era occupations. I remember laughing at what it was. [more inside]

Is this a legitimate site? I can't find anything online to suggest that it isn't, but at the same time I can't find any reviews suggesting that it isn't, either. Thanks!

A few years ago I saw an online comic spoofing the overly-serious analysis of anime by westerners. I'm not sure if it was from a web comic or something made as a one-off joke, but I'd like to see it again. [more inside]
A move is in my future, but I need some help figuring out where to move, particularly in regards to figuring out school districts. What is the best way to do this research? [more inside]
I've seen the recommendation on here for The Drama of the Gifted Child many times. I bought it last night and was reading thru it and it seemed ok until I started seeing a lot of talk about repressed memories. Wasn't that all debunked? I'm questioning the validity of anything else the author says. This is just not the book I expected based on the numerous and repeated mentions of it here on the green. [more inside]

What kind of cart is this? It came from a surplus school auction.
I'm trying to either buy or make a round-bottomed lab flask with a cork-covered neck. The object of my desire looks like this Kontes Kool-Grip round-bottomed model. Unfortunately they appear no longer to be made, at least as far as I can tell. Where can I find one, or failing that how can I put a very similar wrap on the neck of a regular flask? [more inside]
