What if there were no spoon, Neo?

I sometimes make iced coffee by placing a glass mason jar filled with ice into my single serve coffee maker and letting it brew / fill with hot coffee. I include a metal spoon inside the jar to act as a kind of heat sink and prevent the glass from breaking due to thermal stress. But should I bother? Does that spoon actually do anything?

Help me find very large wool or wool blend socks

I have very wide feet and I wear either a sock for wide feet or a sock in size 12-15 or XXL. These are hard enough to find in regular white cotton socks and I need to find them in a warm wool or wool blend sock.

Reasonably priced IR/thermal imaging camera

I don't need something like the Predator's thermal/IR graphics, but a thermal imaging camera seems like something that would be interesting to have/use. Except they are $800 and up. Are there any cheaper options ? [more inside]

Clothing recommendations for -16C Toronto

I live in London. I am going to Toronto on Sunday where, according to the weather forecast, there will be lows of -16C. I have literally never *been* in weather like that before, and do not own, or know where I should purchase, clothing which will deal with it. Special circumstance to note: I am a large person. I'm a woman, but men's XXXL does well by me . [more inside]

Installing a heatsink the right way

I'm installing a new CPU and motherboard into my friend's case. If I were installing it for myself, I'd slap the thing together and see if it worked but since the computer does not belong to me I'm going to try to be more careful. The CPU is a boxed Intel E5200 and the motherboard is a cheap ASUS. As I understand it the E5200 is going to have pre-applied thermal interface material, a.k.a. thermal grease, on it and all I'll have to do is pull the tape off and put the heat sink on. Right? Also, if anyone has any tricks to gracefully seating the heat sink I'd love to hear them.

SartorialFilter: keeping cool in men's business attire?

Insulating cold drinks

Coffee cup sleeves: is there any reason to use one on a cold drink? The java industry is pushing the idea that it's not just for hot drinks. They claim that cold drinks stay cold longer thanks to the insulation (from your warm hands and the environment.) But is this scientifically valid? Isn't the insulation kinda negligible?
