YASID about a weird house and It's not And He Build a Crooked House

My friend is looking for this story and none of us remember where it is from. A traveler or explorer encountered a house and walked in through the front door. He walked through the house, out the back door and around to the front of the house. He discovered that the front of the house was pinched off and inaccessible. Please help

Landlord says their bank is inspecting our building for "tax purposes."

Just got a memo from my landlord that there is a mandatory inspection of my building tomorrow by his "lender bank" for "tax purposes only." They will be taking pictures inside all our units. Why does a bank need to inspect for tax purposes? Why do they need pictures of the inside of my home? It feels very intrusive. I suspect they're either refinancing or selling the building. The note says failure to comply, within the 2.5 hour timeframe, will be a breech of my lease and grounds for eviction. Is that legal? (I'm in Los Angeles, if that's germane.)

Lunch or early dinner between Boston and Williamstown MA?

I'm headed from Boston to Williamstown in mid-September for a short getaway. I'll also be 33 weeks pregnant, so anticipate needing frequent food and rest stops. Where can we stop about halfway for lunch or dinner and a good leg-stretch? Google says Athol is halfway, but I don't know restaurants in the area. We also think we should take route 2 and 2A for the most scenic drive -- is that right? Thanks!

Best Way to Use my Unlocked iPhone in Britain?

I'd like to use my iPhone 6+ in Britain during our two week vacation. Fido offers me a sad $10/20MB/day data plan. I assume I can do better by buying a different SIM in when I get to Heathrow. But what flavour of plan and what sort of provider should I be looking for? [more inside]

Help me make the giant egg rolls they sell at food carts in D.C.

When I went to Washington D.C. I discovered food carts/trucks that sold enormous, cabbage-y egg rolls. This was about 10 years ago so they weren't the trendy food trucks you see today, but they were bigger than hot dog carts and drivable. I've attempted googling them over the years I'm missing the secret word. Can anyone find a recipe (and any other info) for these? I must get them in my belly!

What is the name of this Javascript code reminding visitors to sleep?

There was a bit of Javascript featured on a site like LifeHacker a few months back that would place a black page before a website at night telling visitors that their sleep was more important than whatever the contents of this website were. The page had a link if you wanted to bypass the gate. The application was the first project the team had worked on and their mission statement was that they developed web apps to help improve the world. Does anyone know what I'm referring to? Thanks!

WordPress Search not searching properly - at wit's end

Tips for Business Travel to France

My husband is traveling to Senlis (seems like a small town north of Paris) at the end of August for 2 weeks on business. He does a ton of domestic travel in the US but this is his first international trip. He does not speak any French, and his top preference would probably be to exist in an isolation pod stocked with protein bars and free weights during the time he is not at the client site. Any tips for making this trip as bearable as possible for him? [more inside]

Can I just quit my job to deal my extreme life changes?

In the past year, I have been treated for cancer and my husband died unexpectedly. With the exception of 4 weeks of FMLA earlier this summer, I have continued to work at my professional job with only a few days off here and there. I increasingly want to take some time for myself to figure out who I am now and what I want the second half of my life to look like. Is that terribly indulgent? Is this a thing people do? Will it completely torpedo my career? [more inside]

Places to avoid around Oceanside, CA?

I booked a rental place in Oceanside, and I'm going to visit Legoland and a few friends in SoCal.

How do I avoid the bad parts, so I don't just blindly follow my GPS somewhere....

Can I get MS prescription filled before losing my insurance plan?

Hello all, I can't find this answer anywhere (without directly asking my insurance company). My wife has multiple sclerosis, and without insurance her medication costs $6k per month. On our current plan I play $30 for a 3 month supply via the specialty pharmacy home delivery. We are losing this coverage at the end of August, but have a delivery in progress and will receive the next 6 months worth before we lose coverage. Is there some way they can charge me for the medication already received if I lose coverage for the following months? [more inside]

Gaiman, Pratchett, and "Good Omens" - what do I read next?

I've never read any Neil Gaiman or Terry Pratchett, but am now in the middle of Good Omens and really enjoying it. An attempt years ago to get into the first of the Discworld series failed early (I'm generally a lukewarm fantasy fan at best), but for some reason, this hits the spot - what other titles from either of them should I try next?

Seeking quote on how adding boys to a task decreases amount of work done

Don't know who wrote it, though Mark Twain and Robert Heinlein came to mind. It's about boys working on a task, possibly in a frontier or rural setting. It goes something like: 1 boy is worth 1 boy, 2 boys are worth 1/2 a boy and 3 boys don't get any work done.

Which is safer in SE London? Shadwell, Stratford, NewCross/Lewisham?

Hello. I just got confirmation from my Uni that their accommodations are setting me up with a flat in Shadwell. It was my 3rd choice and 2 trains from my college. But just reading online, I didn't realize that Shadwell doesn't have a good reputation, has had some violent crime in recent months and has some... 'Extremist' possible group activities going on there. Therefore I was wondering if anyone has any feedback, insight or experiences w/ this and these neighborhoods in the SE London/Lewisham area who can let me know which may be better options? Here is a map link to my Flat/Dorm building. [more inside]
