Why aren't there more photographs?

What are some examples of famous people/events/etc that are surprisingly under-represented in photographs? For example, there are only two surviving photographs of Chopin. What are some other important subjects that we don't have many photos of? (Speaking after the advent of photography, of course.)

Can I block someone on a 3rd party iCloud shared album?

I have gone NC (no contact) with a member of my family. He participates in commenting/liking photos on another family member's shared iCloud album. Is it possible to block him so I don't see his comments and he doesn't see mine, without asking the photo album owner to make any changes? I have googled and it looks like no, but thought I'd ask the hive mind here. He is blocked in my iPhone contacts already which seems to make no difference to iCloud album permissions.

Help me find this quote I came across about the mark of a good book

It goes something like this: The hallmark of a good book is measured by how fast you read in the beginning and how much you slow down by the end. Thank you!

Best books about same sex parenting

I'm looking for some good books about same sex parenting to give to a lesbian couple with an adorable baby boy. They say they want something to prepare them to address the good, the bad and the ugly (ex: bullying, homophobic slurs, etc). Same sex marriage and parenting are legal in our country, if that makes any difference. Could you give some recs? Thanks in advance!

YouTube Transcriptions - Halp

Yesterday I uploaded an interview via Tunes to Tube and somehow got to the Subtitles/CC area with my clip in a box on the left, and the transcription box to the right automatically populated in lines of two, no timings set. My husband signed me out this morning, and I can't figure out how to do it again and my Googlefu is failing. Any ideas? [more inside]

Apostrophe murder

Before 1985, I read a short story about a person murdered for correcting the apostrophes on signs. Memory tells me that it was published in a mystery magazine such as Ellery Queen's. What might it have been?

Looking for a Taishanese video with Chinese New Year blessings

About a year ago, my mum's friend sent her a Taishanese video on WeChat, it was a simple recording of a woman's voice listing a whole bunch of "good luck" blessings. Onscreen was the transliteration of what she was saying - captions in solid red traditional Chinese characters. I haven't been able to find it on youtube, but maybe I've been searching for it wrong. Anyone seen it and knows where I can get it? The video is pretty funny when the woman gets into it, and she talks faster and faster towards the end.

How to display/frame a Medicaid ID? (inspiration piece, out of poverty)

Hello, A family member, a well-respected doctor, gave me their former Medicaid ID, as a form of inspiration and encouragement. I would like to frame/display the card on my desk at work. Any creative ideas? Maybe framing it with a quote underneath? I imagine Pinterest might have some neat ideas, but I would not know where to start with a search. Thank you!

Help finding specific blog post with podcast/audio book recommendations

Sometime in the last few months, I read a blog post by a woman who's either a professional economist or blogs about economics that recommended several podcasts and audiobooks. I now can't remember the name of the writer or the website. I'm pretty sure I first saw the site after Tyler Cowen linked to it on Twitter. The blog post in question specifically mentioned the audio books for Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials series as outstanding. Does this ring any bells for anyone?

Patreon MP3s stopping, then resetting

Hello. I find that whenever I try to listen to MP3s on Patreon's Android Mobile app, it frequently stops the track entirely, and then resets the counter back to the beginning; I then have to re-find my place manually. How do I make it stop doing this? (HTC One M9, Android 7.0)

West Nile Fallout in East Colorado

One of my loved ones has the diagnosis of West Nile virus neural invasive disease. He thought is was tick-related and had health professionals working with him before he had all of the awfulness. Fever, lack of coordinated muscular movement, vision problems, the works. The diagnosis is based on testing and they can’t really pinpoint exposure. [more inside]
