I am intending to do my PADI Open Water Diver certification next Monday but have been struck with allergies. With medication, is it still safe to do this? [more inside]
A coworker told me that he doesn't enjoy watching basketball because the high scores give less opportunity for surprising victories, as the scores are a reasonably good statistical reflection of which team played better in a given game. The low scores of soccer lead to the opposite problem for someone who likes surprising victories, since ties are so common. He came to the fine Canadian conclusion that hockey is just right. I suspect that he is mathematically correct, but I'm not sure which mathematical or statistical tools would help me prove or disprove it. Are there laws of small numbers that would apply to this analysis? [more inside]
I currently have two bags for checking strollers or car seats on planes that I got for free because they're a bit beat up. I'm decent at sewing but don't have much experience with mending. [more inside]

What are your favorite campfire songs? because singing around a fire with friends is generally the best.
I just read Ruud Gullit's How to Watch Soccer (it's the U.S. edition) and wondered who are the football experts making insightful comments (live-tweeting is good too) on Twitter?
I took a pottery class, and all my pieces are fired (first firing, then glazed, then second firing). There is a problem though - I think the glaze I used for half my pieces wasn't mixed enough, so it basically did nothing. [more inside]
I'm looking for some durable pants for bicycle commuting that work well in a casual (tech) office. My bicycle commute is 6 miles each way in San Francisco. I'm male, 6'2", and 220lbs, with pretty large thighs. The combination of cycle commuting and thighs that rub together means that I wear through the crotches in my pants fast, and I'm interested in finding some pants that are a little bit more durable.

Is there an up-to-date cord-cutter's guide to streaming the World Cup matches somewhere? [more inside]
Hey, I've got an event coming up in about a month. Nominally it's in celebration of my birthday, but it's just meant to be a good excuse to get a sizeable number of people (c.30) together for a convivial event. My concern is whether I'm able to invite my comrades from my uni caucus to this event. As I don't know them from a social gathering, I'm concerned it may not be appropriate. I know them because we're in the same party, and work together towards the same political goals. [more inside]
I'm planning a cross stitch/embroidery that looks like a screen on a mainframe computer and I'm having trouble getting the shiny neon green look. [more inside]
More generally, am I right in thinking that UK football fans face all sorts of restrictions and limitations when it comes to watching Premier League matches on TV?
What are some engaging, multiplayer horror / sci-fi / fantasy online games or apps that have a boardgame-like feel? [more inside]
Specifically, a sports bar with a 50' screen and recliners that you can find in metro areas (or at least, LA, NY, Boston, DC, SF, etc.). [more inside]
Price point of $50 and then $100 -- what are the thigns to avoid or look for, and what are decent brands? [more inside]
I would like to obtain or build a weekend getaway within about an hour of my home in Western NC. I see a bunch of tiny houses, yurts, etc., and then some dilapidated shamble shacks in small towns for around $35K. All of these possibilities make me giddy and wanting to binge out on HGTV renovation shows. But in real life, how do I proceed? Who do I need to hire, and what can I do myself? [more inside]
I read somewhere that the rules for March Madness 2018 had changed slightly, and that these changes gave Loyola an advantage and helped them get as far as they did. However, I can't find/don't know how to look for information about this. Is there a good resource for these rule changes and their effects on the 2018 tournament? Bonus points for something easy to read for someone who just got into college basketball this year.
What is best done in London on a weekday in July? I've lived here for a million years so this is NOT a tourist question. I've got a 2 week 'staycation' in our fair city and I want to know what you, a fellow Londoner, would do in the middle of the week which is more pleasant than done at the weekend. [more inside]
