Also running the engine all weekend is a non-starter. You can't do this either economically or realistically. People who live in their vehicles do NOT do this. You'd run a heater off of propane or kerosene or you could be like my uncle who had a… [more]

Also in case you missed it, there's a more specific LSAT question this week which might have good information. One of the other things I'd do to practice is getting used to "okay now what do we know?" So like John is in the red chair… [more]

I've got an actual coin guide here and it looks like either a 2, 5 or 10 Millieme which would have been minted in 1924. I think it's this one, yes? If it has what looks like a zero on the back in the center, that stands for "five" [more]

It may be worth acquainting yourself with what assault actually means in the location you are in. Usually "assault and battery" is a combination of terms used in the US where assaulting is the threat and battery is the act. I am oversimplifying and I… [more]

We should create a second MeTa post where people can make all the sexist remarks about alleged rape victims they want without creating a derail. People should STFU or GTFO instead, actually. [more]

That's neat! My gmail question a while ago netted me an email from a gmail/google person who told me that the behavior I was seeing was, in fact, a bug and that they'd be rolling out a fix in January. Whee. [more]

Best solution I've seen if this is a chronic problem is carrying a small packet of baby wipes with you [or having them in your bathroom]. This makes it easier to wipe up the whole area and be clearer that you've done a good job. Add to this adding… [more]
