It's a weird question, I know, but my bathroom has a weird counter. The sink sits on the far left. On the far right, there's a hand-towel hung from a loop on the wall. But there's an awkward empty counter space between the two. I'm not looking to fill the space. I just feel like something should be sitting there against the rear of the counter to make the space look not so empty. But what? I'm a single bachelor, so yeah, this is as much a question about style as it is about functionality. Even strange suggestions are welcome!
I have a nice dispenser of hand soap by the sink. Other than that, there's nothing on the counter and it looks like there should be. Like I said, it's a weird question, but it's bugged me for a while so I figured I'd ask the hive mind. What looks good on a bathroom counter?

I'm about to move to a new apartment that doesn't have a kitchen counter or much cabinet space, so I need to buy a cart with cabinets and a countertop (like this)
. I'd like to buy it from a store in Manhattan. Any suggestions? [more inside]

Too tiny! Too tall! Too deep! Is there a Goldilocks fridge out there that is just right? I need a counter-depth fridge (with freezer, top or bottom) that really is counter depth -- 24-25 inches at the most with door and handle -- without being more than 32 inches wide. Many so-called "counter-depth" fridges I've seen are 29-30 inches deep once the door and handles are included, and even when I find one the right depth, it's very wide, typically 35-36 inches. The best match I've found so far is the LG 349
, but it's a full six inches narrower than my current (awkward, too deep) fridge, and the slightly larger version
I've seen at a store still seems toy-sized and flimsy inside, while being a little too tall for me at 74 inches. I'm in Canada (Toronto, to be precise).

Why is it that at McDonald's they rush you into ordering as soon as possible? Specifically, if I'm the only person in the store who hasn't ordered and I'm away from the counter deciding what to order, they'll shout at me say, "Can I help you sir?"
This only happens at McDonald's. [more inside]

Can anyone recommend an ergonomic work/office chair that can accomodate a counter-height (36") desk? The usual chair height is 24". It would be nice if it could roll and swivel but mostly I'm just looking for comfort and a sleek design. Thanks!

I'm looking for a counter to put on a powerpoint slide that will count up to a number of my choosing. Is there such a thing? I want to be able to say e.g. there are surprising number of widgets in this country and then have the counter ticking up as I'm tallking and then stop at the right number. Variable speed would be good, in case I need big numbers. Any ideas?

What is the best (and free'est) hit counter?
I would like to be able to make it invisible to the surfer and have it collect statistics.
Sitemeter used to be great but they are not around anymore it seems. They had statistics available so you could see who was at your site and which pages they were at, etc.
Don't know how to do coding so I have no backend database or cgi, etc. experience...unless it is super easy to figure out or a stand alone java applet.

I want to include a counter on my website. I don't want to use a "free" counter that includes links or advertisement on my site. I'd rather just write the code in myself for a simple, small, black-and-white counter. Can anyone help me?
