Apps That Help Combine Photos to Fix When People Don't Smile or Blinking

I used to use and love an iOS app called GroupShot that helped you magically combine the good parts of multiple photos into one to help fix issues like when people don't smile or accidentally blink or when they aren't all looking at the camera at the same time. The app no longer works right and I can't find any others like it! Anyone know of any other apps out there that do that? [more inside]

wedding reception activity for tables that people would want to do?

We are getting married and we want to have mini pinata-type things on each table at the reception (11 big tables). We want to put some fun stuff in the pinata (like glow sticks for later on) - including - some sort of activity. We want people to break open the pinata and then have to do something as a table. Not terrible or terrifying, very fun. 5-10 minutes. But what? What are your ideas for fun activities they can do? ALSO, what else should we put in the pinata that is fun and (ahem) cheap? Thank you!

Give me your hungry, your vegetarians, your omnivores.

Cooking for a group of 12 foodies whilst on vacation, three of whom are strict vegetarians. The other 9 people have expressed the desire not to eat vegetarian food all week. So I'm looking for entree recipes that A: can have meat added on separately at the end, but are also satisfying sans meat B: are easy to make for a large group aka not very time-intensive/time-sensitive/complicated and C: are super-duper tasty. Unimaginative casseroles aren't going to cut it, here. Difficulty: no appliances available other than stove and a BBQ.

What's a good platform to share and organize PDF readings online?

Hey guys. I'm looking for a platform to share and organize readings for my study group online. I'd basically like to create a private library that each group member can access, add to, amend, and comment on. I would like to be able to tag and group PDFs around particular topics. I was thinking of a platform like Wikia, but I feel this may be a bit much. Does anyone have any suggestions?

How to usefully download posts and comments from a secret Facebook group

I have been running a Facebook group since 2012 and I got a grant to do research with the findings from it. I need to download the group's postings and responses into a table and thinking the most reliable way to do so is with SQL. However, I have only just started with SQL and although I have found some ideas on Github for doing it, have no idea how to get started with pulling the information. I am seeking advice and possible alternatives. Can you help?

Need good ideas for a Group Reading

Looking for ideas of Books that would be relatively fast reads and entertaining for group readings. I got the opportunity to participate in a reading of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas this past weekend in Aspen in celebration of the Good Doctor's 75th. It was a blast and would love to recreate that without doing the same book, but that book is perfect. A friend recommended my favorite book Confederacy of Dunces, but I think that book works because of the Character of Ignatius which may be hard to pull off in an aloud reading. But anyways, any ideas?
