I've worn this necklace
every day for nearly 10 years now, but I don't know what it is. [more inside]
My partner and I were remembering our differing childhood experiences of homemade spaghetti. At one point, she brought up using the leftovers in a spaghetti sandwich. I've never had one, but this triggered a vivid memory of a favorite picture book which had at least one illustration of a spaghetti sandwich. Among other odd sandwiches, possibly. I'd love to remember the title of the book and, ideally, see that illustration. [more inside]
So, about a year and a half ago, we bought a house! Awesome. For the first time, I have a back yard and a front yard and a lawn and... stuff
, and I don't know, maybe because I'm old and boring now, I've started to give a crap about making my lawn look nice. Something is really starting to piss me off... [more inside]
What's this humorous SF mystery? [more inside]

I just saw a very odd aircraft -- a twin-engine passenger jet with an odd protrusion from the top front, taking off from Phoenix Sky Harbor. Any idea what it might be? [more inside]
A loud call like castanets clacking in a cattail marsh: who makes that sound? [more inside]
Last night on the way home from work I was listening to Cosmic Commander's Sonic Radio on Faction. I heard a song and would really like to find out who did it. [more inside]
Patch Identification Challenge! [more inside]
Hi, can anyone please identify this flower/shrub
? It's in Northern Virginia, and I took the picture a few days ago.
Can anyone identify this mysterious sea creature
? My sister saw four of them swimming at the surface in Boca Raton, FL. They were undulating like squids; when contracted they look like black slugs, when stretched they look like that fellow in the photo. An entire crowd formed to watch, as they were so very weird.
My Husband and I previewed a CD on display at Ear X-tacy in Louisville this weekend, vowed to remember the name of the artist, then promptly forgot it! We're from out of town. Here's what we (possibly inaccurately) remember: "-landia" was in the CD title. The CD cover was grey / B&W with a graphic design on the front, the music was electronica / orchestral / melodic. I remember thinking the artist might be icelandic / scandinavian from a quick glance at the artist's name, etc.
SongIDFilter: Can anyone identify this song
? It's from a compilation CD, and I have no distinguishing information other than the song itself. It sounds quite familiar, but no-one I've asked has been able to place it. It seems rather cinematic, making me think that it's from a film score, but that's really all I have to go on. Any leads would be much appreciated.
