Mostly looking for something educational to put on TV as background noise. Kinda like a coursera lecture but not focused on microdegrees and not having homework. [more inside]
Dug out my childhood LEGOs from storage and have the urge to build something. It’s 2019. There has to be a tech-y way to do this. [more inside]
I have my eye on a 10mm thick TPE yoga mat. Is it the right choice for a fat beginner? [more inside]
Hi all, I know there are some gamers in here so I was hoping y'all could help this non-gamer out with picking a new game. I actually went most of my life not enjoying playing computer games at all but fell in love with Stardew Valley. I loved that at any time, I could choose to do something zen (fishing), productive (farming), or exciting (mining). I also loved that it was co-op but we weren't forced to be together or cooperate all the time. Are there any similar games out there?
A secondhand GoPro HERO3+ Black won't stay on for more than a couple of minutes. Is this just because the original battery is old? [more inside]
Where can I find good practice routines/drills for developing individual basketball fundamental skills? e.g. dribbling, layups, passing, etc. All around game improvement is the goal to help improve enough to make varsity next fall. I'd like to build a practice schedule that can be done daily with metrics to track improvement. Something that can be done at home (in a driveway with hoop on garage) by yourself. Online mentors/coaching? Also, where can I get more information about improving the 'head game' part? Outwitting opponents, strategies, tactics, etc. Books, videos? Thank you
I am looking for an online book club that has scheduled chatroom (or other versions of live chat) discussions. I want the discussion/chat of an in-person book club, but with the convenience of not leaving the comforts of home. Does such a thing exist, or is this one of those "be the change" things? [more inside]
So I realise this is an incredibly dated question. I have a friend that I game with over a LAN. We play cooperative games like Civ. However (gasp) I am getting bored with Civ. What else is there? [more inside]
I'm making a project in linen stitch (with cotton yarn, which is a pretty hateful combination) and it just called for a decrease. I'm not sure how things match up from the next row on. [more inside]
A online discussion / blogger group I'm involved in is looking to hold a 2 day small conference in the Los Angeles area for about 50ish people this June and they're looking a venue that could be free (or very low cost) . This is not a for-profit group but they don't have official nonprofit status. This might be a tall order but I was asked to look into this and thought the MeFi hive mind might know! Thanks for any suggestions!
I am looking for a regular social activity I can organise and invite friends and acquaintances to, which does not require ongoing commitment or skill. [more inside]
I'm looking for recommendations of current solo games that have a strong whiff of vintage RPG or boardgaming in their mechanics, art, and pace. [more inside]
I love rollercoasters, and am planning an amusement park road trip with my son that is built around riding a whole bunch of them. But in my middle age I have started to get motion sickness from riding. It's the standard queasiness and bellyache stuff, where I feel like I'm gonna barf and then can't eat afterward. The internet suggests that Sea-Bands or Dramamine or [insert miracle cure] all work great, and simultaneously that none of them work at all. Do you have a strategy/regimen that has helped you keep riding?
This is the year I will finally start to learn the bass guitar. I have been looking at used ones on Craigslist. Other than one that will stay tuned, what do I need to look for/stay away from? And amps?
Any idea where I could get the pattern for Wonderart Lion Latch Hook Kit, 27" X 40" without re-buying the whole kit? [more inside]
I recently found out about puzzle books and my partner and I completed The Librarian's Almanaq last month and loved it. Can you recommend more of the same please?! I know there is a sequel to that one on Kickstarter: Conjurer's Almanaq. We enjoyed the variety of puzzles it provided and just solving it together over a period of time (maybe like 5 or 6 evenings) and that it was a screen-free activity too. Whatcha got?
I'm trying to figure out how keep my sheet music organised. My folders look like this. Ideally I'd have them alphabetized, but then each time I add a new sheet, I'll have to shift everything else. The other option is just to put them in as they come and have a frequently updated table of contents up front. Just wondering if I'm missing a better solution. [more inside]
I'm a longtime bike commuter in Seattle, but not much of a mechanical expert. I currently have a road bike (carbon fork) and a hardtail mountain bike. Several things have gone wrong on both bikes in recent months, and the annual Seattle bike swap is coming up this weekend. Should I look for parts to fix the issues, or scrap em and jump ship? (snowflakes inside) [more inside]
Learning small engine repair never occurred to me before this question got me thinking it might be a hobby I'd like. Is there a better way for me to start than this community ed class? Is it a hobby that can generate a little profit? What are the other pros/cons/things to consider? [more inside]
Are there any good sources that examine Dungeons and Dragons alignments in terms of real-world philosophy, or, alternatively, are there any good sources arguing that the alignment system necessarily relies on narrative logic and can never be productively used outside of the game? [more inside]
