What's the best place to buy a heritage turkey in Los Angeles?

Planning ahead for Thanksgiving dinner in a new city. On Long Island my parents used to go to a local turkey farm where you could choose your bird and they'd slaughter it fresh for you. I'd love something similar in the Los Angeles area; failing that, I'm looking for the best place where I can reserve a fresh, heritage bird -- happy to pay extra for it.

Another "Help me find this story"

The core of the story is that a (possibly Indian) guy falls asleep (or is knocked out {during a robbery?}) (possibly near a river) and lives the whole lifetime of a separate existence in a dream. He wakes up (or comes to) at the end (and tries to integrate the experience). [more inside]

What makes the optimal wall charger for the Motorola Moto G (2nd Gen.)?

I have recently obtained a Moto G (2nd Gen.) and it comes without a wall charger, while Motorola’s support gleefully mentions (archive.today) it ‘is best to use the Motorola charger that came with your phone.’ What output does a USB power adapter need to give to charge the phone quickest and cleanest?

What is the unit of measurement for movement while performing a task?

I can't remember the unit of measure given in a, potentially older or not very well known, engineering textbook that focused on wise design (proper kitchen counter height/depth, doorway width decisions, funtional lighting, etc) choices. Picking up your coffee cup would be 3 %UNITNAMEHERE%. You reach for the mug, grasp the mug, and lift the mug. Three thingymabobs. What is that word? Or... am I crazy? [more inside]

Email Group/List that multiple platforms can use

We have a family email that goes out every week to people across many email platforms. Every time someone changes their address, someone new is added (or removed :/), the onus is on each person in the group to make those updates to their own personal list. Obviously, this rarely happens with 100% accuracy, so someone always slips through the cracks. Is there a way to have a group that can be administered to centrally in one single location, but utilized by people across multiple email platforms? [more inside]

How much sugar/sweetness do oak barrels add to whiskey?

The other night a friend of mine argued that aging in oak adds a minimal amount of sugar to whiskey: oak's main addition to the end product is flavour, with the majority of the sugar in whiskey being a product of the fermented mash. Is this true? Does the oak have a significant role in the sugariness and/or sweetness of the end product?

Does a local pharmacy keep stock of all drugs, all the time?

What is this website about lesser-known cities?

I remember recently reading a website that highlighted smaller/lesser-known American cities and talked about why they were great places to live, as an alternative to trendy cities like Austin, Asheville, etc. The article I remember reading was about a town in Texas that had beautiful architecture, complete with lots of photos. I thought it was called something like "you should live here" or "you should move here", but those aren't turning up any Google hits. Does anyone know what this might have been?

looking for a print/copy shop in Boston that you don't have to babysit

I'm looking for a print/copy shop, preferably downtown Boston, but will travel to nearby areas by T, that can do small batches (12-25) of full-color brochures that need to be folded a particular way. Apparently quite a few print shops don't do small runs, or don't do folding. Our current vendor, who I will politely not name, has left us unsatisfied on a few occasions (color not great, messed up the folding job, requiring us to refold them all). Already tried ProPriint, and their quote was fairly expensive (~1300$ for 25 ) Ideally we'd be looking at half that amount. I'm hoping someone can provide a "I've used VENDORX and they were AWESOME" kind of testimonial.

How to refer to mismatched page numbers in a PDF document?

I often need to refer a person to a specific page in a PDF document linked in an email. Sometimes the document contains page numbers on headers or footers that do not match the numbering of the PDF file. For example, the page with “12” displayed in the footer is page 16 of the PDF file, because the file includes four pages of front matter. “Page 1” as labeled in the document is the fifth page of the file, as shown in the document reader’s toolbar.

My brother claims that in large construction projects where excavators dig out underground carparks, the cost of removing the machinery exceeds the costs of replacing it so they are simply buried under all the concrete.
