Is there any good TV left that I haven't watched?

I feel as if I have watched all the good TV that exists... (on Hulu/Netflix/YouTube/Vimeo/VBS.tv) help prove me wrong please! I like shows like Californication, The Wire, Sons of Anarchy, a lot, but when it comes down to it I'll also watch stuff like Shark Tank, Top Chef, Bones, Lie to Me... anything even vaguely interesting.

Ask.meta.angieslist: Caterers in Chicago

Chicago caterer? Nope, not for a wedding. Just a cocktail party not held at home. I've tried looking through the google (and reading the wedding boards anyway), but seriously, it's way too much information with no quality filter. Have you hired a local (to Chicago) caterer for a small event in the last year or so that you would recommend? [more inside]

Post Yosemite Driving.

So I am staying in Yosemite for one week in a friend's cabin in Fish Camp, and as long as I'm gone by the 23rd I get it for free. I have full lightweight camping/survival gear, food and a partner but no real clue if we should stay in Yosemite (can't afford a cabin, might not be any more wilderness/overnight passes left) or just slowly drive home. So, included is a MAP of our path home. If anyone knows of a great place to stop, be it for an hour or for a day, feel free to offer it up! We don't have a lot of money, but we do have camping gear/food already so as long as it's not too far off the path we won't have any problem with the gas budget : )

Looking for a good ending

Looking for books with good ENDINGS. In finishing a book there are a lot of times where you are left thinking "wow, that was great... except that last 20 pages. Arrrgh." What books would you recommend with GOOD endings? I emphatically do not mean happy endings; some of the most pleasurable endings in my memory are ambiguous, or even clearly unhappy ("the bad guy wins"). [more inside]

Help me help my players.

I've played every version of D&D and am wondering, is there an RPG that doesn't take 3 hrs to make a character, where combat can be resolved in less than an hour and doesn't require a dozen books? I'm flexible on the genre, but fantasy or scifi is what I'm most interested in, something that can be used over the longterm, not just for a few games (RISUS and it's pals appeal but doesn't seem durable enough), with enough flexibility for me to mash things together but without me having to design my own homebrew from 2 or 3 systems. I've done that. Lots more inside... [more inside]

Snowblower recommendations and advice?

I live in upstate New York. I need to buy a new snowblower and I'm looking for recommendations. It appears that nearly every snowblower, regardless of the brand, is now made by MTD and I have some serious concerns about their quality because of the large number of plastic parts and the thin metal they use. I'd like to know if my concerns are valid and what brands are made by other manufacturers. I've heard that Honda makes a phenomenal snowblower but I'm not sure I can afford $3000 or more.
