Medical podcasts

I would like to find new medical podcasts to listen to whilst I cycle. I would be interested in physiology, pathology, anatomy, anything similar, really! I have enjoyed Doc C on anatomy, pathology and pathophysiology and Robert Sapolsky on Human Behavioural Biology a great deal, so more excellent lecturers would be great. [more inside]

Help me write an inspirational note to a kid from a poor family

This Christmas I'm taking part in an initiative to offer gifts to kids from poor families, that usually don't get any Christmas presents. I'm not sure who is receiving my gift, but I know it will be a boy between 12 and 17 years old. I'm going to offer a football, since it fits the age range, but I would like to include a written note to go with it, something inspirational and optimistic, relativizing the value of material stuff. Any suggestions?

I do like bacon, but this might get ridiculous...

Is there any way to procure rendered bacon fat that isn't, you know, cook a bunch of bacon? I need about 2.25 cups of it to make a triple batch of these bacon fat gingersnaps and I don't particularly want to have to cook about 6 pounds of bacon to get it (1.5-2 lb for a single recipe).

What was this computer-refereed board game about space I played in 1992?

I remember going to someone's house for regular sessions of this very long game about a quest for something that had to do with aliens, spaceships and weird planets. The defining thing about the game was that your Windows PC computer kept track of what was going on, even though you spent a lot of time reading passages the computer assigned you to read, from cards or a book. So it had this hybrid aspect reminiscent of VCR games.

Help me find this comic about people "tied to their phone" (but not)?

A while ago I saw a two-panel comic, probably on Tumblr (since it's a very Tumblry sentiment), which was a takeoff on the "people these days just stare at their phones" genre, but which showed that those same people were using their devices to connect to friends and loved ones. Help me find it? [more inside]

Elavil helpful for migraines?

I get migraines that are interfering w/ my day-to-day functioning (first grade teacher--enough said). While they are not the kind where I need to be in a dark silent room, they are extremely persistent and only respond to the triptans (to which they respond beautifully). However, the triptans are no good when you have to take them several times a week. I was on Topamax and thought it was working at first, but then realized it totally was not working at all...

Early side scrolling webcomic in desert setting?

In about 1999, I came across a neat webcomic. It was in a desert/pseudo Egyptian setting and each story would be arranged in a side-scrolling manner, like a roll of papyrus. It was beautiful and extensive enough that I remember needing to read it over many days. It rearranged my thinking about what was possible on the Internet. My Googling skills are failing on this one; does anyone remember its name or (!) have a still-live link to it? [more inside]

Tasty kabocha squash is DRY. How do I use this?

Hokkaido variety kabocha squash. I cut it in chunks and steamed it -- with the intention of eating it plain. It has lovely sweet chestnut flavor. But so dry and crumbley, like stale cake. Any suggestions on how I can repurpose this steamed squash? If I make soup, will the dry crumbles melt into the broth and make a smooth soup? Or I could mix it with mashed sweet potatoes. But again, I hope for a smooth texture without dry crumbles. Tools: I have only a standard blender. And a manual potato masher.

Can you help me find a really simple wallet?

I'm trying to find a bifold wallet with just two interior pockets. The closest I can find with my poor Google-fu is this wallet by Tuffy; it's really close. But I want cards that go in horizontally, not vertically, and I don't want a money clip either. Preferably it would be made from leather and in black. And it should be able to accommodate a fair few cards.

Water heater dilemma: New valve or new unit?

Our Northern VA household of three adults recently lost its hot water, due to a failure somewhere in the works of our natural-gas, tank-type water heater.

Android game filter: game with blocks and numbers...?

The blocks are pushed up every so often. The blocks are all non-descriptively gray, except some of the ones on top are colorful and have numbers. At the top, it shows what the next block dropped will be, and you can click on the column to drop it on. Then, depending on some unknown (to me) rules, the blocks will disappear, sometimes multiple groups of blocks will disappear in a chain reaction. Sometimes this will cause some previously gray and unnumbered blocks to now be colorful and numbered. [more inside]

Where do I buy glacé fruit in NYC?

Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and the mom-and-pops in a five block radius of my house don't have glacé fruit, and I just moved to Queens and don't know where to go for it. I want cherries (ideally the green and red dyed ones), orange peel, pineapple, but NO CITRON. I don't care how much it costs or if it's fancy or not, but it needs to go in a fruitcake by Monday and I need a couple pounds of each. If they definitely have some and can sell it to me on a weekend or an evening after 7, I'll travel pretty far. Help!

Who sang this song?

I'm looking for an album/artist. It came out about 5 to 8 years ago and was popular with the NPR-crowd (probably a "first listen"). It was a woman singer and was pretty angsty. I remember one song that had something to do with a woman in a bathtub or in the bathroom; maybe the singer referred to has her wife. Very vague. Too vague for my searching skills.

Polite professional phrasing for "bump"

I sent an email to someone with questions about a job listing they posted. Their reply said that the position is still open, but they are on the road and would write back next week. I replied "Great – talk to you then!" It is now six days later. I want to say, hey, are you back yet? but without sounding badgering or unprofessional. What's a good way to say this? This person and business is not formal, so formality is not necessary, just politeness and professional-style respect.
