how to remove shrink plastic insulation tape
I agree 100% with dilettante. The more carefully and slowly you peel it off, the less damage, it seems.

all malware make yonation go something something
I made a great Shepherd's Pie a couple of weeks ago. I put barbecue sauce and crumbled bacon in with the ground beef and onions, and shredded some cheddar cheese into the mashed potatoes. Came out really great.
Also, KEY FUCKING LIME, BABY.

How do I properly tattoo a rat’s tail?
My wife used to do this in an internship. First tip: soak the tail in warm water for a few minutes to soften the skin (dry thoroughly before proceeding). Place the tail along the spine of an open book to keep it steady. Also, rest the tattoo machine on the back of your hand while tattooing, otherwise it will vibrate too much. You can even wrap a rubber band around your hand with the machine in it for added stability. Experiment a bit with the amount of ink you need -- too much makes it hard… [more]

Gills, Fins and Psychedelic Thai
Thanks for fixing that link, stupidsexyFlanders, it was worth it. The Cafe Restaurant is actually a great name for a restaurant.

Am I just shy?
Mine was the same way, but in a closed office rather than a cube, but that was just his office -- we didn't "go somewhere more private" or anything. It did strike me as a little weird at the time, but not inappropriately so.

Joe Chat critiques
There were getting to be so many FJM disciples in those chats trying to JoeBait him it was diminishing the humor of what FJM could do with them. I loved the guy who signed into the chat as "Ken Tremen, Dous, Neb." and asked some question about Jeter's consistency or something.

New York: The Biography
If you'd consider fiction, Forever is about an 18th Century Irishman who is granted immortality, as long as he stays on the island of Manhattan. Provides a nice vantage point for the history of the city.

Can you suggest some comic books in trade paperback based on what I have already read and enjoyed?
The 30 Days of Night series. A bunch of vampires get the idea to head north of the Arctic Circle and terrorize an Alaskan town. Amazing, unique art by Ben Templesmith, who has done some other great stuff, if you like 30 Days -- particularly Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse.

Made-in-advance cracker-like pizza crust recipes?
At my supermarket they sell these little pouches of pre-made Naan (a Indian flatbread) that are delicious and the perfect size for an individual pizza. There are like three in a pouch, and while they don't last long once open, they keep reasonably well still sealed.

Barack Obama is the next President of the United States
As a American who is further left than any national politician has ever been (except maybe former Socialist Bernie Sanders), I have also always been proud of America and proud to be an American. Proud of the ideal, proud of the concept, proud of the promise. That hasn't been easy lately, but I have come to accept that you can be proud of your country and ashamed of your government. I am so glad that we will soon have a leader that I can be proud of -- what he is and what he represents. I… [more]

How can you get cleared faster for unprotected sex after a vasectomy?
Should he be masturbating a lot in order to clean the pipes out?
That's what my doctor recommended. That and sex, as long as we were using another kind of birth control.
If you've gone through this, how long did it take you to get the "all clear"?
All clear at one month. My doctor also recommends yearly checks to make sure there is no spontaneous reattachment -- very rare, but possible.

To maximize the financial and experiential value of your ticket, I'd pick somewhere small (expensive flights) that you otherwise might never get to. How about Burlington, VT for a ski trip, or Martha's Vineyard, MA for an island getaway, northern California, New Orleans, Key West?
