These questions have no answers yet.
Give me your true stories, your unhappy endings, your mysteries. I really enjoyed this
question, but the answers I found the most compelling were the true stories about people
. Give me links to investigative writing that I can get my teeth into.

I want to improve my digital photo organization at work, and I don't care about anything in iPhoto except Events. Unfortunately, I really
appreciate being able to visually browse Events as a central database of every photo upload ever.
It feels like there's no easy visual browsing in the Adobe suite, is this true? Should I just get better at using keywords in Bridge, or is there something magical in Lightroom that I don't know about? [more inside]

I'm a US transplant to Germany. I listen to a lot of lefty podcasts from the US: Democracy Now!, The Young Turks, Majority Report, Best of the Left, Citizen Radio, etc. My German is getting pretty good after two years, and I'd like to listen to similar issues discussed auf Deutsch. Suggestions? Vielen Dank!

I've been trying to find this paper I remember reading once (it was probably on Metafilter) but I can't seem to find it in the search. It was about a thoroughly mediocre early modern or victorian novel which was interesting because it taught readers the conventions of novel reading. It was full of scenes that showed characters reading novels and having emotional reactions. [more inside]

The lyrics in Lorn's Diamond
go from :15 to 1:10. What are they? I can kind of make out a few phrases. "So I stay in this...", "But the space I keep...just won't be there long" and "but the best advice", "to pave the road that's of stone". Can anybody tell what all the full lyrics are? I even took the song and sped it up in audacity and that is still all I could make out.

Simple summary: A brother and sister rode along to the store in the back of a truck to purchase a coffin. On the return trip home, the coffin falls on the sister and kills her, and they have to go back to the store to buy a coffin for her.
Google has had some mighty strange or irrelevant suggestions to my query, but nothing that seems right. It's probable that I'd recognize the cover or the name of the book. [more inside]

I'm looking for an essay I read a while ago on the evolution of labor markets in the face of increasing competition. It claimed that as competition for good candidates became more intense, there would be a progression in market structure through several stages: (1) open hiring, with companies differentiating themselves via wages and working conditions and eventually increased acceptance of exploding offers; (2) a system of internships to identify good candidates before they formally entered the job market (e.g., most good law students graduate with an offer in hand); and (3) a formalized match system like the national residency match program where all hospitals and students submit their preferences to be resolved simultaneously. It was a non-academic sort of essay, with no game theory or citations. It sounded like an intelligent amateur putting something up on a personal website. It may predate blogging. Hope me please?

I decided to toy a bit with paraliminals. I remember someone on here recommended some that ran about 5 bucks each (I think) but I can't for the life of me find that post now.
Any other mefites listen to these and have any recommendations?

(Apologies for the vulgarity)
I often find myself gravitating to the phrase "what's the point of life if not to give an asshole a hard time?"
I really think this is a loose adaptation from a movie, but maybe I'm really the asshole. Rudimentary googling produces no answer. Anyone know the real quote and source?
No probing analysis of my psyche or job necessary.

Our organization has years' worth of Yahoo group postings. We would like to move our groups to Google but still be able to access and search these archives. Recent changes to the Yahoo groups UI seem to have broken existing third party tools
How can we download Yahoo group archives and host them on our own site?
