Is there an easy way to find the lowest sales tax among nearby stores?

Is there any easy way to find out the tax rate for different stores? For example, there are probably a dozen branches of some "big box" store within a 20 mile radius of where I live, but all are in different tax jurisdictions. For a big ticket item, finding the one where the tax rate is lowest could easily justify the trip. But how do you find it? [more inside]

Much self-control needed to avoid scratching!

I scraped my wrist eight days ago. The gash itself is healing up alright, albeit a bit slower than I'd like, and it looks like it might scar a little. But the surrounding area is red, blotchy, and bumpy like a rash, and it itches terribly. Should I be concerned? [more inside]

GraphPad Prism 5 Layout Question

I am new to GraphPad Prism and love it, but am having trouble tweaking one of my layouts. In the layout, I have 4 graphs arranged vertically. When I select one of the graph objects, it appears to have extra white space above the graph part at the top of the object. I need to remove this space so I can size the graph evenly with the other graphs on the page (this graph must go at the top of the page and if I resize the object so that the graph part is the correct size, the object does not fit at the top of the page). How do I get rid of this white space? I couldn't find a crop tool in the program, program help files and the google failed me. I'm working with the 5.0 version, if that's important.

Searching for the artist's name

Does anyone know the name of the sculptor who created this piece (sorry, only have that one cross-processed photo), or have an idea how I could quickly find out? It's at the MFA Boston (I think on the second floor). I've already clicked through their collection online and can't find it. Thanks!

Little stone, we will find you a perfect home

Asking for my bff: She and her boy are about to get engaged. Her mother has offered her a diamond that belonged to her grandmother. She really wants to use it, but it is a 1/4 carat round stone and she is having a lot of difficulty finding settings that will work with it. She knows it is a petite stone, and wants to find the best setting to show it off. She hates the plain four prong solitaire look. [more inside]

My printer will only print infinite blank pages

I have a 4 year old Samsung ML-2510 printer that will no longer print. It takes in a sheet of paper about halfway, then stops for ~20 seconds then spits the page out a blank page. It will keep doing this until it runs out of paper. The red error light is slowly flashing. The problem appeared a couple of years ago, but I've always been able to get it to go away before. It worked fine the first time I used it this semester but stopped working the second time I used it. Since then I've only been able to get it to spit out one non-blank page, and that was involved in a paperjam. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get it working? I've tried Google and the Samsung site, but I get the same 4 questions answered over and over again. [more inside]
