Name that Cheese

My wife and I had an amazing cheese at a party last night. It was soft, about the size of a typical wedge of grocery store brie, but with a black-and-white speckled rind and a very pungent odor. Any ideas?

Movies to get us in the mood.

Help us watch movies that are romantic and sensuous with just a little soft porn scenes to get us in the mood. Adult movies tend to be intense and sometimes put us off. The ones that were suggested to us by friends tend to be action movies with a scene thrown in or horror movies. [more inside]

Where can I buy bandannas that are nice and soft?

I always carry a bandanna that I use as a handkerchief. Mine were received as gifts or found randomly here and there, so I don't have a good source for buying new ones. I'm looking for nice soft cotton bandannas, ideally USA-made, that make good handkerchiefs. I looked at Amazon and eBay, but Amazon reviews vary from person to person, and I was hoping someone here had a good recommendation. As far as pattern/color go, a standard paisley or whatever is fine.

Stronger than wood?

I have an ongoing issue with a area of my house that involved moisture, mold and heartache as outlined here I have found a small piece of 2x4 in the wall that is moisture damaged, it is sponge-like. It is a small area and I am wondering if there is anything I can do,, like inject it with some super stuff, that would avoid me having to dismantle the area and replace this section of 2x4. It is at the bottom of a wall, the sill beneath it is fine, it is just about 18 inches of 2x4 that appear to be damaged. Thanks oh thanks for the continued support. Henry

Make me as soft a kitty as possible!

Please surround me with softness! I want everything I use or touch to be as soft as possible, because this relaxes me like nothing else. Please recommend your softest of everything - bedding, clothing, pajamas, socks, underwear, shoes, lotion, pillows, hair products, music - truly anything soft makes me feel better. (Fuzzy is good too as long as it's a nice soft fuzz.)

Super soft shirt - but where from?

I need a ridiculously soft white t-shirt to complete the perfect pyjamas, the most comfortable money can buy. What brands would you recommend, and where can I buy them (delivery by Friday to, or physically in, London)? Additionally, what goes towards making a t-shirt soft?

A shaking soft soundless toy for a very funny boy?

A few years ago I bought a vinyl soft-filled cable car toy for my nephew. All it had was a pull-cord on the side that when pulled would make the toy gently shake or rattle until the pull-cord ring was back at the side of the toy. It was great! It made zero noise! It's been discontinued! Help me find something like it that I can order over the internet for a very nice three-year-old's Christmas present. It need not be a cable car but trains or other mechanicos would be awesome! Thank you so much in advance.

My eyeball has a soft spot.

I noticed my eyes were bloodshot the other day, particularly the right side of my right eye. Last night, i touched the red area with my finger out of curiosity, and it sort of... wrinkled. It's squishy in a way that my other eye is not. Should I be worried? [more inside]

How should I build temporary, attractive walls/dividers on the cheap in my basement?

How should I build temporary, attractive walls/dividers on the cheap in my basement? These paper soft walls look great, are flexible and temporary, but cost a small fortune. Looking for an alternative I could simply and cheaply set up myself to block off a 13'x13' section as a "room". The basement is unfinished, dry, with concrete outer walls and wood joists in the ceiling.

How do you make new bed sheets soft?

I received a gift of a 500 thread count sheet set. I've always been under the impression that the higher the thread count, the softer and more durable the sheets are. These sheets, however, are not soft. They are noisy, wrinkle easily, and don't feel very pleasant. Since I don't have the receipt to return them, what can I do to make them feel better? I've already washed them twice and used fabric softener sheets in the drier but with no success.

Soft drink fonts/free vector-based maps

Two seemingly unrelated design/illustration questions: 1. What are some of the fonts that have associated with soft drink companies have used over the years?
