Best savings account interest rate in the US?

I'd like to find a savings account that has a higher interest rate than what I have now. 2% would be great and 3% or more would be amazing. My current savings account is 100% online. All I do is transfer in some money every month from my checking account at another bank. I am looking for a similar setup. It has to be a bank that accepts national customers since chances are if there's a good regional bank that only accepts regional customers, I don't live near it. What do you recommend? [more inside]

Let There Be Ham and Cheese on Earth

I'm hoping someone here will be able to help me find a lost recipe from my early-80s childhood. It consisted of deviled ham, Kraft Old English cheese, poppy seeds and mustard (plus some other things I am definitely forgetting) spread between soft rolls and baked in the oven until hot. The recipe was likely one my mother clipped from a Woman's Day or Ladies' Home Journal. [more inside]

Poem about differences of introverts, extroverts, ambiverts.

So years ago I found this small bit of poetry which really seemed/seems to nail that question. I had it taped to a bathroom mirror, somehow it got lost in the shuffle of my life, moving here there etc and etc. I can remember the first bit, about the introvert, and I remember the general gist of the bits about the extrovert and the ambivert. I have no idea where I clipped it from, no idea who wrote it, search engines are not helping, I'm hoping that you can. [more inside]

SongFilter: "The X Riff"?

Can you help me identify a song whose name I half-remember? It has mellow guitar work, next to no vocals, and the title is something like, "The X Riff", where X is Compton, or Mumford or something. Naturally, I also don't remember the artist name. My gut feeling is that is was one word and began with an M, but don't quote me on it. Thanks!

How far do you please your inner Neanderthal?

RIP, Dr. Heimlich...but something is bugging me

We all know that the great Dr. Henry Heimlich, inventor of the Heimlich Maneuver, passed away today at the age of 96. I'd like to phrase this as respectfully as possible, but I could've sworn that I heard of his passing (or at least having some kind of health problem) about 1-2 weeks ago. But it seems like he passed away suddenly from a heart attack in his home. I know that this sounds like some outlandish "Mandela Effect", but what other news could I be confusing this with? (No, not John Glenn's passing.)

Does it help organizations to have me on their mailing lists?

Like many people, I have stepped up my charitable donations and political letter writing and petition signing in recent weeks. This has, of course, resulted in a trillion emails. My inbox is out of control and I would like to unsubscribe to some of the lists, but hesitate because they're all for worthy causes. Hence, my question: Does it benefit a nonprofit or politician in any way to have me on their mailing list, or should I unsubscribe for the sake of my sanity because it makes no difference either way?

Looking to identify a French BD

Years ago (2011), I read a graphic novel in France that I would like to find again. It was in color, decently big in print size, and featured this white liquid that would create statues(?) as it dried in-motion. Someone dipped themselves into a pool of the liquid, jumped from a tall height, and behind them was a statue trail of them falling. Unfortunately that's all I can remember; does this ring any bells for anyone?

Has anyone weaned off of antipsychotics?

I know this isn't a psych forum, but you all are a very bright and insightful group and I tend to see worst-case scenarios elsewhere on the web. So my question to you is, have any of you weaned off of an antispychotic, such as Latuda or any other atypical? Of course I would only do it under a doc's care and would take quite awhile doing it but I'm curious to hear other experiences and input. Also, if you did, how long were you taking meds for and were they high or low doses? [more inside]

Ever use a LEGO broker?

I know we can sell LEGOs on ebay or CL, but we've also seen ads for a few firms that buy used LEGOs. Does anyone have any experience with these, or with selling a moderate number of LEGOs? I am curious about the market, and if going through a third-party buyer is worthwhile? [more inside]

Christmas gift ideas for people I like but don't know well

I got my cousin and their spouse in a family gift exchange. I really like my cousin on the rare occasions when we are together, but my cousin was a small child the last time we spent any significant time together. Cousin and their spouse are in their 20s, live in the eastern US (somewhat rural but kind of hip area), and they seem like really cool, smart people, but I do not know their specific tastes. What should I get them? Facebook stalking hasn't helped.

Can my car auto-lock after I leave it?

I have a 2012 Mazda3 with manual transmission. In the last month it's been "broken into" twice. However, I'm somewhat sure both times that I forgot to press the lock button on the fob. Is there a way to configure something in the car that makes it lock within 30 seconds or so of turning off the car in case I forget? Apparently there are different answers for automatics vs. manuals.

Disclosing gender transition to a grandparent with Alzheimer's

Need food delivery service in Miami near Jackson Memorial Hospital
