For IMPORTANT REASONS, I want to watch as close to a full playthrough for That Goose Game as exists on the Internet. But I'm having problems finding any besides this 11 minute one that are just the game and the sounds of the game, without a voiceover. Do you have a link to one? [more inside]

Will No One Rid Me of These Troublesome Magic Cards?

I recently brought back a box of late 90s Magic: the Gathering cards from my mom's house, and while I definitely want to keep most of them, there are a few with some real value (in the $25-$200 range) that I neither feel sentimental about nor plan to include in any of the casual decks I'd be making. What's the best way to sell them? [more inside]

Why won't Syma apps from the app store work with a Syma QC?

I bought a Syma X22W quadcopter. But the apps in the Android app store by Syma do not seem to control it. When I download and open them, there are controls and options. But I can't get the app to connect to the phone, or the quadcopter to connect to the app. I can control the app with the handheld controller but not from the phone controller built into the apps.

What are your best hiking/backcountry camping recipes?

I'm going camping with my kids and some friends in a couple of weeks. We usually go car camping but this time we'll be hiking in to our site. If it was just us adults we'd be fine with getting some dehydrated food packs and calling it a day but our kids will want tastier fare. What exactly is that? [more inside]

My adult daughter and I want to do a series of... podcasts? vlogs? let's plays? focusing on video game advertising. This involves going through Humble Bundle bundles, Steam queue, and various other listings about games, rather than reviewing/playing the games themselves. Starting budget goal: Less than $50, fewer than 10 hours of prep work. This is something we want to do for fun and maybe pizza money. [more inside]

Need recommendations for hand/handlebar interface and maintenance

I seasonally commute on a road bike and currently use gloves and leather grip wraps, but after about three years the grip wraps have started to wear through. This might be a) normal operating limits (three years!) b) because I didn't do anything much to keep the leather or gloves clean or c) because I got cheapish equipment. Is there a better way??

I'm looking for more ways to build things, solve puzzles, and play games

I love puzzles, games, and building stuff. I was recently given a lego brickheadz character and loved building it. I had never played with legos before and it hit some kind of puzzle fix button for me. My ADHD brain can only seem to really focus on games and building. [more inside]
