I'm Taking My Teen Boy to London; What to Do?

Like it says on the box. I'm taking my youngest kid to London for a week in August, we're staying by Gloucester Road tube. Through a miracle of connections, I was able to score us tickets to see Liverpool vs. Stoke but other than that and a show at the Globe, we have no plans. [more inside]

Anachronistic medieval Eastern European settings?

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?

Conflicts in a law office

I'm writing a story in which some of the characters are employed at a law firm. I'm looking for realistic conflicts in such an office that would involve senior partners, junior partners, associates, paralegals, and staff. Not life and death struggles like a John Grisham novel, but more day-to-day things.

Rev up my aging iMac!

I recently had an SSD installed and upgraded to Windows 64-bit, which sped my mid-2011 27" iMac up dramatically. It's extremely exciting--I'd assumed I'd have to buy a new machine this year.

Truckin' to Truckee; what to do, where to eat?

Help me remember a movie quote about wanting things one way

What is the ideal format for this convention badge?

I'm trying to come up with the ideal form factor for the entry badge to be used at a geek convention. The badge needs to be cheap to produce, and simple in design so registration can be achieved quickly by volunteers, but also sufficiently hard to modify to discourage misuse. I'm currently stuck between the different options available. Is there a magic solution I'm missing, or is this just a variation of "fast, good, cheap; pick two"? [more inside]

cold lake, summer vacation

I live in the Deep South; everyone goes to the beach for vacation. I hate the beach in the summertime (it is way too hot). Where should my wife & go on vacation this summer? I would like a cold, deep lake to swim in, hiking trails, and some privacy. She would like a cottage or cabin on said lake. Would prefer an area that is LGBT friendly (will settle for agnostic), and that we can get to on Delta (we have vouchers to burn).

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?

Best way to get my own Mondrian-esque art?

A dear friend is buying a house soon.
