Skype Sound Quality: Why does everyone think I'm in a horrible muffled echo chamber when I call them on Skype? Can I do something about this? Is there an alternative to Skype that would allow me decent quality calling to a land-line? [more inside]

I'm about to buy a new pair of eyeglasses. For my prescription I want high index progressive lenses. I want the high index so the lenses will be as thin as possible. I keep hearing that Zeiss lenses are better than other brands and would like to know if this is true before I spend my money. Costco does not sell Zeiss. Is whatever Coscto sells as good optically?

How can I try out a Filco Majestouch keyboard? Inspired by an earlier question today, I looked it up on the web, but most of what I could find was Japan-centered. Any ideas about how I could find one to try, or even to order? I'm in the US (Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina).

Does some database have the wrong idea about me?
I live with 4 otherwise nice and "normal" guys who all drink a fair amount of beer, and I am the designated beer go getter. I almost always use my ATM/debit or credit card and grocery membership card.

The recent question
about quality science fiction has led to an ongoing debate with some friends. How does one measure Quality or Beauty in art? For example, what makes one painting better than another painting? Are evaluations of this sort purely subjective? Somehow the argument that there are no objective standards for Beauty — that the Quality of art is purely a matter of personal preference — seems dangerous to me. (If one cannot measure Quality in art, then how can one measure Quality in science or law or any other field?)

It's time to retire! So what are the ins and outs of buying new tires for my car? To me, one tire pretty much looks like another, and aside from "high performance" and "retreads," I don't really know what makes one tire better than another.

two for one:
I just set up my new projector
and while it is AWESOME, i'm having an issue with running my incomputer tv input through and losing allot of quality. 1) is there a good piece of software for interpolating tv input to make it higher quality
2) i'd like to organize a movie club to take advantage of the new beast and meet people in my area (berkeley for the bay area mefites). I'm thinking a craigslist ad but i wasn't sure how you would start such a thing when you don't know anyone (similar to starting a bookclub or something) [more inside]

This one is simple. Do you (have you) used a dating service. Which ones sucked? Which ones rocked? I'm currently using one - and yeah, I'm looking for someone long term, not just for this week. Anyone get married from this?
