I am looking for articles, services, commonly used search terms etc. [more inside]
In this image of Bruce Lee, can you tell me what the circled portions are, between his arm and torso? They look like the membrane of batwings; I'm assuming it's a muscle group, but I frankly don't understand what I'm looking at.
I am considering living abroad, not sure where yet, for an extended period. [more inside]
What used to be considered common or low quality that's now considered a luxury? [more inside]
I need a new sword carrying solution. Unfortunately for you, I'm rather particular about style... [more inside]
I just started a new job at a great company and moved to a place with more friends, all sorts of good and great things, and I have felt really quite happy and thrilled by how good things are vs. the truly meh/sucky/over-worked-ness/long-commute of before. How do I keep this feeling of gratefulness and happiness alive? I can already feel like the "day to day" is making me adjust to this new normal, and little annoyances are starting to get me down.

I've had to curtail my social life because of an illness (see previous question). Right now my M.O. is to go to work, get through the day, and go home and rest. [more inside]
It sounds so easy, but I can't find what I'm looking for: a baby name book that meets my criteria. More below the fold. [more inside]
A friend of mine will be moving to Philidelphia on July 30th to start a year of service with City Year. She aims to spend less than $600 per month and knows that this will require roommates, but doesn't know how to find them! She's considering trying to live with some of her co-workers, but is concerned about maintaining personal boundaries if she works and lives with the same group of people. Can any locals in the area provide insight? Is there a secret Facebook group (or something similar) where roommates can find each other in Phili? [more inside]
I'm thinking about taking a weekend trip to Philadelphia (I live within driving distance, but have never been). What's cool and off the beaten tourist path? (The Mütter Museum is already on my list.) Snowflakes inside, of course! [more inside]
I need four game of thrones style lists of titles for our wedding party. For the wedding happening today. Two men and two women if it helps. Danaerys' string of titles is already out.
I have experienced a loss and people want to reach out and 'help' me. I'm having very conflicted feelings about this. I'm not sure how to more graciously handle these offers? [more inside]
I love to draw people from reference photos. Most reference photos are of thin, "conventionally attractive," usually white people taken with studio lighting. For the last year, I've mostly drawn animals to avoid this problem altogether, but it's time to break my curse. Please tell me where I can find reference photos of people that aren't white models!
It is time to sell my 1999 Toyota Corolla. I would like to sell it to a private party through Craigslist or something instead of donating it, because even thought it has high mileage I have done a ton of work on it in the last year and it has a lot of new parts and still has a lot of life in it.

For over 13 years I've wanted nothing more than to be an illustrator, and have spent most of my free time diligently working towards that goal. Lately, though, I've been coming to grips with the fact that I'm just not that good--certainly, I'll never be good enough to work as a professional illustrator. Without that goal, my life feels completely aimless. Now what? [more inside]
No, but really, I need one of each of these (CFP = Certified Financial Planner) because of age and medical circumstances. My will is okay but kinda out of date, I need to update the Living Will/Health Care Proxy, Springing Power of Atty, discuss DNR. And the broker and CFP assigned to me at a financial institution are making me so tense because ... I need to make decisions about money; and, of course, they would like to keep it in-house and I don't know if that's the best deal for me right now for REASONS. [more inside]
Looking for software for annotating maps, not cloud based, that will let me zoom in and out, add flags/notes/icons to specific locations on street maps (or other images), and print out maps at arbitrary resolution. [more inside]
Is there any case for defining rocks and minerals as a non-renewable resource? [more inside]
...was making the rounds on academic-ish social media. I think it was set up as a cutaway view of a house. The attic was messy heaps of stuff showing initial studies, messy data, etc. At the bottom (the basement) was some depiction of the tidy result of all this mess - a research paper. [more inside]
Like a lot of people, I'm time poor and would like to get more stuff done with what free time I have: make that art, play that instrument, write that thing, etc. I don't waste much time per se, but in what I do have, the time it takes to switch between tasks and into the appropriate mental mode often negates actually getting much done, and this pattern can often discourage me from even trying. Do you have any tips/tricks for expediting switching between headspaces? [more inside]
