One of my ELL students wrote this in my yearbook and I don't know what it says-- it's probably not overly exciting but I would like to know what she wrote. [more inside]

I'm interested in better understanding the rate at which data transmission has increased through human history. I would like to graph this to understand better how to compare ancient events with modern based on how long it would take an idea to filter through a population at a given time. I know this is a tall order, and so I've settled on one variable that I think will be useful for me: the speed at which the results of a battle were relayed back to the relevant parties.

I recently applied for an apartment my roommate and I found by ourselves. A locator service we did not use contacted me and told me I could get a $400 rebate if I told the complex I found the listing through the locator's website. I think if someone actually did this, it would be fraud, and I think maybe I ought to report this service for attempting to get me to do this. [more inside]
Hello. I'm looking for projects that extend benefits to people who contribute in a meaningful way. For example, Muckrock allows people to file a few free FOIA requests if people do one of these tasks on their assignment desk. Do you know of any other projects like this?
I am looking for a song for a female vocalist to sing during the middle of a series of speeches at an upcoming marriage equality rally I am planning for SCOTUS decision day. (Music kind of breaks up the monotony of these types of things) [more inside]
Some months ago, I lost my iPod in Moscow whilst out there doing festival biz (I'm a Brit by residence). Incredibly, someone found it, the Apple security held, and I got an email from someone telling me they'd be happy to meet up and give it back. As the air fare is higher than the device cost, I thought going postal would be the best option, but I've drawn a blank - most of the delivery companies either want me to pay cash on the Russian side, or expect me to have a corporate account. [more inside]
I'm having a poster made for my wall at work. I want it to be an "inspirational" quote of some sort. I was originally going to have "Females are strong as hell" but I decided that one is probably better for the house. [more inside]
My frustration with Bank of America has reached epic levels recently after some housekeeping of my accounts with them. I've always known their surreptitious charges/practices have being toeing the line as far as the law is concerned, for instancing their structuring of consumer transactions in such a way so as to trigger certain fees. [more inside]
I love researching historic things that I have never heard of, such as the Victorian chatelaine: [link]. What other items might I enjoy learning about? Thank you!

What is this mystery object? A friend found it at her parents' house. Nobody knows what it is. [more inside]
My mom died about six years ago. At the time, her sister (my aunt) and I flew back to clear out her belongings. We thought we got all of it, but it turns out there was some stuff we missed. And my stepdad and his new wife keep finding it and sending it to me. I need help figuring out what to do with it all. [more inside]
It's very likely that I'll be moving to LA for work soon. If so, I'll only have a few weeks to find a place. I know very little about LA, so I'd love to get some insider info to help narrow my search. [more inside]
