Just lost my job yesterday. On the one hand I'm shitting because, now what? But on the other hand WHEE!! I don't have to deal with that anymore.
I found that turning the volume way up for Reckoner
, recommended by queseyo
earlier, is working well to push down the bubbles of panic.
I'll have to deal at some point, but what else can I listen to to carry this, I dont give a fuck right now, vibe?

I am making a birthday cake to serve to a bunch of kids, and I just did the first stage of the frosting recipe: I melted 125 grams of chocolate with 75 grams of unsalted butter. Then I realized the next step involves raw eggs, which I'd rather not use in a recipe for young children. (Especially because it will probably sit out for a while before serving.) But I hate to waste the chocolate and butter. Without using raw eggs, what can I do to transform this melted butter/chocolate mixture into a delicious chocolate frosting? [more inside]

Windows 7: "You have been logged on to a temporary profile. You cannot access your files and folders ..."
Whoa. An empty slate.
But I reboot and my old profile is suddenly back up and running. So, what just happened there? What can I do to make sure this doesn't happen again? Several related questions inside. [more inside]

Japan has suffered an unprecedented disaster
. I have no job, no money, no insurance, no college degree. Is there any way I can volunteer to go and help rebuild, in any way? Some organization that will send me?

Chops were baked for 60 min (should have been 30) at 350 degrees, smothered in green apples and a thin caramel sauce of butter, brown sugar, and salt. Any ideas on how to fix this? I'm a sad bird.

HousingFilter: Given the incentives to buy a house this year, we're seriously considering buying something in the low $200s this year. Given that we live in Portland, most available properties in that range are townhome/condo/rowhouse style homes. Would anyone care to provide me with a scholarly or trade-related projection how these sorts of homes will be viewed in 15 years? [more inside]
