I Guess You'd Call 'Em "Shadow Dichotomies"?...

I'd like examples of traits/personality types/habits/behaviors wherein most people fall into two or three "camps", none of whom are generally aware of the existence of the other(s). "Ask Vs. Guess Culture" and "Sit Vs. Stand to Wipe?" are two examples (a LOT of people are absolutely gobsmacked when they learn that Asking and/or Standing is not only an option, but a POPULAR option). I'm NOT interested in predefined typologies (e.g. the MBTI or Buzzfeedy "What Garden Implement Are You?" kinda stuff)... just ones that, 1. Arise kinda organically, 2. Involve Group A and Group B people frequently being unaware of one another's existence.

Need to remove a file from Yahoo Groups but we don't know what group

A document revealing my friend's private information has shown up on Google searches and she is hoping to have it removed. It looks as if someone posted the PDF to Yahoo Groups, as a file attachment. The trouble is that we can't figure out what Group it belongs to because the URL is obscure. [more inside]

I want to be your focus... group

How do you go about finding (paid) focus groups to be part of either virtually, by phone or locally? I found a couple of consulting firms in town, and signed up with them, but online searches for remote or phone interview groups make me a little uncomfortable because I don't know which ones are legit and which ones are just click-bait.

Alcoholics Anonymous Groups for people of Asian descent in the USA?

Can anyone tell me about Narcotics Anonymous/Alcoholics Anonymous Groups for people of Asian descent in the USA? I'm not finding anything on google. If anyone can give me information about groups in the Boston area, that would be particularly helpful. Also, if anyone who has actual helpful experience (as opposed to people who just want to speculate) can give me the straight dope as to why I'm not finding AA groups for people of Asian descent, I'd be grateful.

Linux (Ubuntu) filter: Why aren't my login supplementary groups correct?

I just upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04. My system is set up to use NIS and autofs. I am able to login and get to nfs-mounted filesystems w/o problem. However my login is just reporting one group membership (as per the 'id' command) whereas it should be reporting 15. I've found that if I su to myself ('su - luge') then all the groups appear. I've also found that if I ssh to another system and ssh back to my system then I only get one group, but if I ssh to another system and *telnet* back to my system then all the groups appear. I've also found that the getgroups(0, NULL) syscall behaves accordingly, returning 1 or 15 depending on the above. Is this some kind of process inheritance issue?

research by insiders

Does anyone know of any published studies that demonstrate that members of minority groups (ethnic, sexual, etc.) are more likely to engage in scientific research about members of their own groups than non-members are? It seems like common sense but I'd really like to get something in writing.

Inexpensive Napa Winery That Will Take a Large Group

Inexpensive Napa or Sonoma Wineries that can accomodate large groups? I'm taking a bus of 50 people to Napa (preferably Napa but we can do Sonoma) on a Saturday. The group in question will include people who don't make a whole lot of $$$. I'm looking for quality wineries (No Gallo or Mondavi!) that could take a group that large for a tasting fee of $5-$15. Bonus points if you know of a good place for lunch for a group that large.
