By no means do I need a word-for-word translation or anything, but what is generally going on in this video? That is, what is the gist of what the introducer is saying, and when Pit Hartling comes on stage, what is he explaining about the Rubik's Cube before he does the flourish at the end? What, indeed, is this event? Thanks for your help, German speakers!
Looking at joining Welsh Rugby Union club to benefit from ticketing pricesfor Six Nations next year. Anyone done this? [more inside]
Recently, a friend celebrated her birthday with a "learning to Batik" party. We all went to a Batik shop, created a design, Batik'd that design onto a product of our choosing, and then had lunch together. I really enjoyed that we got to learn something new to all of us, were all working on the same type of thing but out own separate versions, and there was an end product for each person. I'd like to something similar to celebrate my birthday and would love more Maker/geeky-esque ideas. Any suggestions for what the skill/end product could be? More specifics inside. [more inside]
I'm looking to up my backpacking game. What tricks, strategies, and indispensable-but-overlooked items do you take with you into the backcountry? I'm looking for little things that cost little or nothing in terms of weight or money, but which make life easier in camp or on the trail. What are some of your most clever solutions? [more inside]
What kind of ball would you reccomend as suitable for playing with in the office? [more inside]
We are renting a vehicle (probably a standard SUV) for our vacation. We want to transport two bikes, as well as a large dog, and rather a lot of luggage but we are running into problems. [more inside]
I've got gobs of biomechanical issues and want to find a highly supportive, narrow trail shoe that could work as a daily brown leather shoe. (Scarpa used to make these, but globalization has "disney-fied" their products.) I'm hoping Euro-based friends here on MeFi might know of another brand (I've tried and rejected all the US options) that offers narrow sizing (or a "woman's" version that works for a guy) and has classic leather styling (i.e., something that looks cool but not flashy, so can wear with business casual attire).

I've been watching more of the FAIL/WIN & People Are Awesome videos on YouTube than I should. Many of them contain (by now familiar to everyone) scenes of teenagers hanging one-handed off the top of a gargantuan crane. Are there known deaths from attempts to do that, or something similar? I googled, but couldn't find anything.
I'm looking for archery games for a group of girls with varying levels of experience with archery. [more inside]
I believe it was for NES and came out before '97. In the long prologue, a female character ends up trapped on one side of a broken floor in a collapsing building. A male love interest remains with her instead of escaping with the group. Does anyone remember what this is? I've tried Google and it sounds like it might be in the Final Fantasy series, but I'm not at all certain.
I love block prints but my own efforts are pretty disappointing. Please give me advice on tools and technique! [more inside]
I am trying to photograph through a window to show the views outside. The problem for me is getting the correct exposure. [more inside]
Trying to find a fun, and spooky, board game for several adults to play on Halloween. Not a Ouija board, please. [more inside]
A spiritual follow-up to this question - I have a hobby that is producing stuff that people occasionally buy from my Etsy shop. After an initial flurry in the spring, sales have dried up over the summer. I feel like My People are out there - how do I find them without spending more time shilling than actually making stuff? [more inside]
Exactly as it says on the tin. Where do all the Twilight Struggle players congregate around here? [more inside]
Where would you go for an interactive experience in the world of Phryne Fisher, or something like it? The only licensed Phryne Fisher game I know of is the Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries Cluedo variant, which I haven't sought out, as it's not what I'm thinking of (though I probably will play it one day).

My five-year-old son is interested in sewing (he's interesting in construction and design, in general). I am not much of a sewer, but I could probably cut out something from a simple pattern and stitch it by hand. (No machine). How can I indulge this with him, given that I have limited skills and he's five? [more inside]
Looking for computer games that are exclusively or primarily keyboard driven. Difficulty Level: Mac. Snowflakes inside. [more inside]
Hi! I've just spent way too much time (about 4 hours) online trying to learn which type of skating will hurt less. All information, including this thread, has only told me preferences regarding style and speed, not what will make me go boom less. I care not about speed, performance or dancing in them, only if they can get me to work (much downhill) without dying. [more inside]
There's a gym near my house that I fully intend to join, but the hard sell and the bullshit fees really just irritate me and make me feel like a sucker. Specifically, I am under the impression that these initiation fees are arbitrary and fake, and they don't really need them. How can I get out of it? More details below. [more inside]
