Shower gels... is one better than another?

I'm happy with the shower gels that I use. It's an assortiment of Sanex products (I like variety). On paper or on the web, that company is all about the pH balance this, hydratation that, skin protection here, deep moisturization there. But does it really make a difference, or is soap basically soap? [more inside]

Physical therapist it kinda pushy...

So, I tore my rotator cuff a while ago, and I'm going to a physical therapist for that, and she's really pushing for me to go to the local swimming pool and take the aqua-aerobics class there. I really don't want to, but she won't shut up about it. [more inside]

What to do near Sedlec Ossuary (Kutna Hora, near Prague, Czech Republic)

I'm going to be spending about 2 hours travelling to Sedlec Ossuary tomorrow, then another two hours back. What else should I do while there, as I'd rather not go, spend I don't know, an hour at the church, then go back to Prague if I can help it. [more inside]

Best Coloring Pencils For Adult Coloring Books?

Or, like gel pens? I was given a couple of coloring books and love them but I really know nothing about the best stuff to use for them and really can't afford to purchase a set I'll just be irritated with and need to replace to give me he results I want.

Does veggie broth make ramen more nutritious?

I've taken to making instant ramen with half veggie broth, half water or thereabouts — improves the taste and texture. But is using broth actually giving me any extra nutrients, or just doubling my dose of sodium? (I'm not deficient of anything, and my diet is otherwise pretty decent, this is just my go-to quick lunch at home)

Smart phone needed ASAP; home has poor cell coverage.

I'm a couple of months away from the end of my 2 year Verizon contract, and my LG L2G2 may have finally croaked a day after its battery was replaced. I'm headed to the hospital for surgery in 36 hours, so no time to research options re: decent, reliable phone and possible carrier switch. Hoping you all can help with cell recommendations and reception improvement hacks. (I live in California, and wonder whether our state Public Utilities Commission ADA guidelines would mandate carrier to provide free signal booster/whatever due to disability.)

How are babies fitted with glasses?

After watching this precious video, I wondered, how are babies fitted with glasses? Optometrist visits in my experience have been highly interactive: tell me what line you can read, what looks better this or this, etc. How do they do this for babies who don't have language skills yet? How do they know they have the right prescription?

Value and disposal of signed first edition books?

I'm culling books and have discovered that I have 2 Pulitzer Prize winning books, first editions and signed by the author. Sadly, no dust covers. The books are A.B. Guthrie's "The Way West" and Allen Drury's "Advise and Consent." While the other books are getting donated to to a worthy non-profit, I think I'd want to sell these if I can pick up some pocket change.

Grout: the biggest mystery of housekeeping.

Recently I've tried using Clorox toilet bowl cleaner with bleach and then (yesterday) just straight laundry bleach to clean my floor grout. Neither had impressive results. Now I have some Zep, which contains hydrochloric acid. If I use this today and there is still bleach residue on the floor (I did mop with water), might I poison myself via a chemical reaction? The area is decently ventilated.

Explain it like I'm five: hiring movers to unload a truck.

In about two weeks, I will have around 12 hours in which to unload a whole lot of stuff into a fourth-floor walkup apartment. I have a few friends who have offered help, but given the amount of crap to be moved I'm pretty sure I will need to hire movers too. I've never done this before. What should I look for in a moving company? Can I ask my friends to help in addition to hiring movers, or will the movers need us to stay out of the way? And how do I estimate how many person-hours of help I need?

PGY 4 Surgical resident contract not renewed - what now?

My friend would have been a PGY4 surgical resident this year but her contract was not renewed (aka she was fired) due to low test scores and slow to improve laparoscopy skills. She wasn't able to get anything and is now unemployed. Her program director has left her program, and never supported her so she is left without any guidance on what to do. Without any guidance she is a bit a drift. It would be helpful to know: 1) What are her chances of getting another surgical position 2) What are her chances of getting any medical position and how does she do that (she mentioned she would need to find somebody to sponsor her into the match) 3) Is there a job she can get right now? 4) Are there any resources (aside from her program) that she can contact for help?
