I’m a 30 year old guy who recently broke up with my ex this past April. Since the break-up, I’ve subjugated myself to the gym and playing basketball again after a 2 year hiatus. Exercise has done wonders for me physically and mentally. However, there are also other items that I want to learn: learning how to play the saxophone, how to cook, how to maintain my new car, and etc. [more inside]
In a couple weeks, my friends and I are participating in the R.O.C. race, and we need some kind of group costume! Something easy to put together, that we can still run around and get wet and muddy in. Any ideas? We'll be 7 or 8 people, in our 30s if it matters. Running in NYC in September, so it will still probably be a million degrees outside. [more inside]
I keep missing the Olympics - women's gymnastics, Simone Manuel, etc. The NBC Olympic site has very few replays and I guess YouTube is on Olympic lockdown. Is there anywhere online to watch replays?
I'm doing an impromptu night trip from Seattle to see the Perseids. The internet advice for meteor watchers is aimed at campers and hikers. What can a non-outdoorsperson like myself do for best meteror viewing? [more inside]
I am considering doing the Everest Base Camp trek this November. I have some experience hiking and backpacking (did the Q-circuit in Torres Del Paine with friends this February), but I will be likely be alone this time and therefore would like to join a guided group for this. I did a search on past questions on this and it seems rather scant. [more inside]
I am looking at buying a Fuji x100t. It has a lot of things I am looking for in this type of camera (basically an upmarket fixed lens). It has good reviews. But I noticed it does not have image stabilization. Every camera I have owned has had this feature in some way. [more inside]
Is it worthwhile for me--a lifelong, but casual racing fan--to make the trip to Saratoga? [more inside]
I'm looking for an online app that will help me coordinate and schedule my book club meetings. Preferably free (or less than $10/month). My book club started on Meetup.com, which made sense when we were still new and growing. We have a good solid membership now so I was thinking of taking us off Meetup (which charges $10/month). I'd like to still have some type of online meeting management, however. Have you used a book club (or group meeting) app that you liked? [more inside]
I've decided I want to make better, more purposeful use of my downtime to get myself out of a rut. I'd like to take some ongoing (not one-off) classes in something that is engaging and practically useful. I'm feeling drawn to mechanical-type things, like learning how to do basic electrician stuff or auto repair. Any ideas? North Seattle would be ideal but I can travel.
Re-watching Californication I find myself wishing that the fictional God Hates Us All (S1) or even Fucking and Punching (S1 through S3) was a real book. Which book would come close to the mix of love, sex, drugs and rock 'n roll that is the first few seasons of Californication?
Is there a compact camera that is as good as the camera on the Samsung Galaxy S6 but is considerably cheaper than the S6 itself? [more inside]
I'm gonna be coming up on some money soon. Hooray! In order to save money I plan on buying a PS4, but I'm starting from nothing. What sorts of things do I need to have a really fun experience? [more inside]
What are some fun items I can surprise my 5.5 year old nephew with on a 6 hour plane ride? [more inside]
After completing some projects and aborting others, I've got some extra materials that would make someone very happy. Problem is, how do I find that someone? Is there an online forum or donation group or something? [more inside]
I need somewhere to find a list of which athletes (and their country) are participating in which events. My google skills are failing me. [more inside]
The park near where we live has many tall plane trees. There's a playground where my children often play. One plane tree has a lateral branch over the playground that's ideal for a rope swing. I'm considering just doing it. [more inside]
Mid-August is peak Perseid and I don't want to miss it! Looking for suggestions and recommendations for dark, secluded spots with big sky views within a 1-2 hour drive of Seattle. [more inside]
I'm designing a boardgame whose main play area consists of a hexagonal grid, 7 hexes on a side, for a total of 127 hexagons. Tiles will be coming onto and off of this play area during the game and I'd like a board with inset hexagons to hold the hex tiles in place. The tiles in question are 1 inch across. How do I do this on the cheap? [more inside]
A year or two ago I saw a video for a product in development: a piece of software multiple people would use across computers, tablets and smartphones that lets you run a role playing campaign in person. Primarily meant to remove the need for record keeping and hauling around tons of books, supplies and miniatures. [more inside]
I have two chromebooks and a Yamaha YPT-320 keyboard. I have been trying like heck and failing at finding a way to record sounds from the keyboard to the chromebook. I would like to record multiple instrumental tracks that I could bring together and mess with in a garageband/ableton type program. [more inside]
