Do I really need a concrete foundation for my garden shed?

Just purchased a resin-viny Suncast Shed (model BMS5700). According to the manual it needs a concrete foundation, but I'm wondering if I can get away with just installing it on level ground. [more inside]

Getting around Chicago & Renting a Car

We (two adults and one rambunctious toddler) will be visiting family in Morton Grove, IL this coming week (Jun 28–Jul 4). Although we will be spending a few days with the family, we also want to make a number of trips into the city to see the sights. Since we are outside of Chicago we're wondering about the logistics of getting around. [more inside]

Why would remaining silent "harm your defence" in the UK?

Was just watching a UK mystery-crime show when one of the cops recited the right-to-silence statement, which includes the phrase You do not have to say anything. But it may harm your defence if you do not mention when questioned something which you later rely on in court. Anything you do say may be given in evidence. This seems backwards to the law in the States where nothing you say to the police is useful for your defense. I'm curious about the legal circumstances under which answering police questions would benefit the accused. [more inside]

What can we do with an older house with carpeted hardwood floors?

My wife and I are about to close on a house. Most of the rooms are carpeted and we're wondering what we should do; we'd like to rip out the carpets but are worried that the hardwood floors underneath (assuming that the floors are hardwood) might be covered with lead-based paint. Also, we pretty much have less than one month to do the floors. [more inside]

What items are ridiculously over priced at retail stores vs. online?

What kind of gadget can a newbie build using the vast inventory of Akihabara?

I need an easy, yet cool-looking electronics project. In around one month, I'll be visiting Tokyo, including a day-long trip to Akihabara. Inspired by this post I think it would be really, really cool if I spent part of that day buying parts in order to create something electronic. Difficulty: I have close to zero experience with electronics. [more inside]

I'd like to recognize more languages

Okay, so I was waiting at the train station and I realized that two people a short distance away were speaking in a language I didn't recognize. And it got me thinking. I can probably recognize fewer then 10 languages by ear (note this doesn't necessarily mean I can understand what's being said, just that I know what language it's in). I'd like to be able to recognize many, many languages so when I hear people talking I'll know what language they're speaking even though I won't have a clue what they're actually saying.

So, apparently I need to get a smartphone. I'm not 100% sure that I really "need" to, but browsing the web on the tiny screen of my current phone is not a fun experience.

What kinds of stores are out there?

What kinds of stores are out there? I've gotten so used to buying most of my things at department stores or large chain grocery stores that if they suddenly disappeared I wouldn't know where to go to buy things. So I'm wondering where you'd get things if you didn't get your things at a large store. [more inside]

I'd like to read some more legal mumbo jumbo

What kinds of jobs are out there?

It occurs to me that, if pressed, I could write out maybe 100-200 jobs/careers, tops. But there must be thousands or tens of thousands. Partly out of curiosity, and partly because I'd love to know what's out there, are there any websites or free resources with a comprehensive listing of jobs and careers, including info like average salary and qualifications required?

Is it a good idea to buy two separate airline tickets for a single "trip"?

I'm thinking of taking a transatlantic, one-way flight using two separate tickets. Basically, the cheapest flight I've found that goes to my destination (via one or 2 connections) is more expensive than taking a direct flight to New York, and from there taking one of the budget airlines to my final destination. Should I go ahead with two separate tickets, or is the hassle not worth saving $100-200? [more inside]
