I cannot find good sheets for super hot weather. Not humid, just desert hot. [more inside]
Which edition of Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons series has the most detail in the maps/drawings? [more inside]
Ordered on amazon wasn't charged? I contacted amazon chat and synchrony chat. Now they want me to call. I'm too damn lazy to waste time on the phone to correct their mistake. What's the worst that can happen? Order was only 39.75
Where do you buy your beach/pool towels? I'm always buying them at the last minute at the supermarket, and subsequently getting annoyed when they shed, bleed in the laundry, etc. I'm ready for some new ones. [more inside]
I'm trying to find online-purchasable, prescription sunglasses with mirror filming opaque enough that you can't see my eyes through the lenses (most searches for "opaque mirrored sunglasses" do not produce these). Any ideas? (Photo of exactly what I do/don't want inside.) [more inside]
My friend is celebrating his five year testicular cancer-free diagnosis in December, and I'd really like to get him something amusing and wonderful as a gift. He's a pretty big nerd with a wonderful sense of humor about being post orchiectomy, so I'd love to get him something that's both commemorative and slyly hilarious - something he'd see and smile at every day that doesn't scream Lance Armstrong's missing testicle.

I bought a rug on Etsy. Item was misrepresented. What is reasonable to ask he seller for? [more inside]
Help me sort through all the country stuff and find some modern gems. [more inside]
So, I've wanted a Le Creuset-type casserole for a long time ... like 20 years. I've decided I'll finally get one for my birthday, But, DECISIONS. I want blue. My imaginary wonderful casserole I use all the time and cherish has always been blue or teal (why I mention this a bit later). I've come down to two, maybe three choices, which are: cheaper but highly rated, very highly rated but quite a bit more expensive, and very highly rated but much more expensive. (the last is a variation on the second) [more inside]
I will soon be in the market for a used car and am thinking of getting a pickup. Likely I'll be looking at trucks that are roughly 10 years old (I am flexible but want something new enough to not have a lot of maintenance issues). My biggest priority is having the least impact on the environment I can while still driving a pickup truck. What should I shop for? [more inside]
I'm on a tight budget and my 2008 Honda Accord is coming on 150,000 miles. My income depends on my ability to drive to clients. In an ideal world, I'd hope to get another 20,000 miles out of the car. I'm just looking for advice on a "decision tree" type template for what I should do and when. [more inside]
I own stick-like box cutters, which I never use, and this handy spring-retractable one, which I always reach for (for minor tasks). The blade's getting dull, and I want to replace it. I assume from its color that I got it at Home Depot. But I don't can't find any there. Any idea how I can replace it? Or if there's anything similarly clever to consider, I'd entertain other options....
I'm sick of attending rallies and protests where the speakers are talking into an under powered megaphone and no one past the first row can hear. I'd like to purchase a nice, powerful, somewhat portable PA system to share with progressive groups in my city. I need your help since I know a fair amount about electronics but not much about audio. [more inside]
A friend is expecting a baby and the baby shower host is suggesting baby books as the present. I expect some guests will wind up buying the same books ("...and another Goodnight Moon!") and I don't want it to be me, so do you have any recommendations for less-popular baby books?
I just arrived in Krakow from Australia. My luggage did not. Insurance will cover replacement of everything if it hasn't turned up after 8 hours, which will be 5pm. I desperately need clean clothes, a laptop charger (Acer) and a phone charger before tomorrow as I am teaching a workshop. Have located places for clothes open until 10pm. What about the chargers? I am in the Old Town. [more inside]
My husband has a birthday coming up. I know he would like something like this coin bank, but it's sold out and I'm having trouble finding an adequate, grown-up substitute. [more inside]
I would like to print a small run of around 100 greeting cards and postcards. I can't use Moo or Paperless Post, which seem to be the default recommendations these days. Does anyone have any other recommendations for online printers based on professional/personal experience?
I'm going to Boston/Cambridge later this month and have pretty much everything planned except where to shop. Any favorite quirky/eclectic places I should be sure to stop by while I'm there? [more inside]
When in the US earlier this year, I bought this cleansing water - mostly because I really like this kind of dispenser and it prevents me from pouring half of whatever's in the bottle all over me. Now the cap's snapped off and I want to replace it, but there doesn't seem to be many things in the UK with this packaging. It's like a 'dish' where you press down and the liquid flows into the middle, allowing you to soak it up with cotton wool - here's a better pic. What's the name for this kind of cap?
I'm interested in a small Arduino shield (a circuit board) that's made by a hobbyist electronics company in Germany. The store doesn't ship to the US. Is there a way to have it shipped to a European address and then resent to a US address? [more inside]
