Relaxation tips for one with little time to relax

For me, 2015 is a year that I'm keen to see come to an end soon. I've been working stupidly long hours in a job I hate, and though I'm now changing jobs I won't — for financial reasons — be able to take any vacations before the end of the year. How can I go about getting some of my energy back whilst still working a 40-hour week. [more inside]

Help me identify these particularly delicious tomatoes

A farmstand near my house sells the best-tasting tomatoes I've ever had. The farmstand is in a suburban neighborhood, and the tomatoes are grown right on the property. The owners are old, and I fear that developers will buy-up the land and the farm will close. [more inside]

Best wagon with convertible third row of seats

I just spent a few weeks in Britain where I rented a Toyota Verso, which is an example of a common vehicle style in Europe known as "5+2", meaning it's a five seater with an optional extra two seats in the luggage compartment (they fold away if you need more luggage space). [more inside]

Solar System geometry - Neptune in solar conjunction

I'm writing an SF story which involves something akin to a space station/industrial complex in orbit around Neptune. I need to know whether Neptune ever goes completely behind the Sun when seen from Earth and if so for how long, or whether the line of sight between Earth and Neptune just grazes the edge of the Sun.

MTHFR methylation: woo...right?

I was complaining to a friend about decreased ability to metabolize alcohol as I get older. He advised I look into poor MTHFR methylation as a possibility. I have searched and searched and all I can find is woo (causes everything from autism to bad vibes, here buy my book and your problems will be solved!). Was this advice of his purely woo?

Talent show ideas for talentless people?

A group of friends is having a talent show tomorrow night. The ostensible purpose is to celebrate the marriage and relocation of a couple in the group, so ideally the acts should somehow relate to marriage and/or California (but if you have a great idea that's not related to either of those things, we can be flexible). Can you help us think of a talent that would require minimal time and effort? [more inside]

Last minute help in converting Illustrator document from RGB to CMYK

Hello gurus out there! I have created a batch of 10 posters that are going to the printers later today (yikes!!!!). I was wasn't 100% sure of the requirements when I started, so my posters were created in the RGB color space. I now find out that the printer needs them to be CMYK. When I use File>Document Color Mode>CMYK Color, I notice that the color shift can be quite large on a few of my posters. [more inside]

Interesting cookware you got there, lady

So I've invited 30 people for paella, and I don't have a pan. I know this sounds crazy but ... is there a reason I can't cook it on a grill in a brand-new metal garbage can lid? My plan was to completely line the interior of the lid with foil and then oil it. What does the hivemind think? (Also paella tips are most welcome.) Thanks!

Novellas, novelettes, short stories

Where do you read novellas, novelettes and short stories in science fiction? Whom do you suggest? During the golden age of sf I relied on Analog/Astounding, but after all the recent Hugo drama I have realized that I barely keep up with the new novels. Looking back at the titles that won Hugos and Nebulas, I realized how many of the shorter pieces I truly loved and I feel the need to get to know the youngish writers. Tell me whom I should read and where I'll find that author.

Johnny Cash's Grammy Winning Liner Notes.

I am researching liner notes, and would like to see Johnny Cash's liner notes for his album "Live at Folsom Prison" as well as his liner notes for Bob Dylan's "Nashville Skyline." They don't seem to be anywhere online, even in iTunes. I would order hard copies, but I don't have time for shipping. Does anyone know where I can find them online, or would anyone who has them be willing to take readable photos for me? I'm on a time crunch, of course. Please help!

Enable my coconut iced coffee obsession

What is the best coconut syrup (for making coffee drinks) that money can buy? For reference, I used to like the Starbucks seasonal one but this year apparently it's changed and tastes strange. Assume I have access to any national US chain store and am willing to order online. I saw the previous question about making one's own via simple syrup + coconut extract and will do that if that's the best answer.

Quick garden plant genetics question

Out of about 20 okra plants from the same purchased seed packet, I have one that's an especially good fruit producer - maybe 50% more than his neighbors. Is it worth my time to make a special effort to plant next years crop only from his seeds, or does this fall within the range of random variation / don't bother?

Advice about submitting short story collections to publishers?

Should one query publishers individually or simultaneously about short story collections? Does no mention of submission status on publisher websites mean "we're closed to subs at this time?" I've read tons of opinions about novel, short story, or article subs, but little about submitting/querying for collections, other than "you should probably wait until you have a novel." In my niche, many authors publish collections with small or large presses before a novel, if they write novels at all. [more inside]

Where does the Muji store source their stamps?

The Muji stores in Palo Alto and San Jose (possibly others) have a stamp station where you can stamp their stationary, bags, etc. One of the self-inking stamps is an elephant. I want that stamp because it's awesome. But it is not for sale by Muji, and I was unable to locate their source (their employees didn't know either). Does anyone know if I can purchase these stamps, and if so, where?
