I'm searching for visual reference material, in the area of kinetic natural phenomena - think falling rocks, volcanic eruptions, flowing magma, good tornado sequences, anything menacing, optimally POV. Photorealistic preferable, CG perfectly suitable, any duration, web or DVD sourced, docs or movies. Thanks!

At the end of a project, regardless of how the rest of the world feels about it, I am almost always sad and angry at myself about how it went. Sometimes I imagine myself being punished for imperfections, e.g. by being attacked and beaten to death with pipes because of bugs in submitted code. Other times I project this unhappiness and anger onto other people, e.g. imagining that colleagues are disappointed in me, until they actually say outright that they are pleased with how something went.I have always had a bit of a perfectionist streak, and in the past had a hard time dealing with less-than-outstanding performance. (Sobbing on the phone to my parents about a B- in college, for instance.) As I've gotten older, I've developed more perspective on these issues, but they still seriously impede my ability to relax, since I am often feeling like I need to make up for these past failures by working more! harder! etc., or I'm just inhabiting a really unhappy mental place. So at the moment for instance I should be making plans for a long-overdue vacation that I promised my husband we would take, but when I start to do so I am choked by feelings that I do not deserve this vacation, that I should take on more work and stay home in order to "make up for" some things I wasn't happy with in my last project. This is especially irrational because a) the client on that project I want to "make up for" claims to be happy, and b) any future project I might take on would not be for that client anyway. So the only restitution involved would be to some sort of perfectionist deity of the protestant work ethic, or something. To get some obvious points out of the way: I'm not suicidal or depressed. If I think objectively about how I feel about my life, it's good and I'm grateful for it. Lots of things are going well for me. I have a career I enjoy with good pay and lots of variety, I'm happily married and living in an area I like, I see friends as frequently as my introverted nature can really handle. I eat and sleep regularly, use no illegal drugs and alcohol in moderation. While I get less exercise than I probably should, that's largely a function of long work hours. I don't think I have low self-esteem overall: when I'm not in one of these moods, I am able to acknowledge various positive aspects of my skills and personality, and I know there is a reason that I keep getting new client work. I don't generally think I'm incompetent. I just... feel humiliated and furious after individual instances of work. I know Metafilter well enough to know there will probably be some "get therapy!" replies, but that is not really what I'm looking for here. Therapy where I live is usually for people with genuine mental illnesses, and in any case I feel that this is something I ought to be able to deal with myself. What I'm looking for is reading, meditation, and/or CBT-ish techniques that people have found helpful with dismantling this kind of thinking.

What are some good novels that have a high-concept speculative element in the background, but aren't quite about that?Like, all the animals on earth have mysteriously died-- but the book is actually about an elderly couple's relationship. Or, science suddenly discovers that ghosts are among us-- but the book is a coming-of-age story about someone who just happens to live in that reality. Or whatever. Looking for speculative twists on reality, not full-blown fantasy/sci-fi worlds. Thanks!

I'm interested in improving my social or networking skills for a better perspective on life.I've always had a small group of friends even when I had been in the same school district for ~13 years. Frequently, I'd make friends in the start of the year depending on class or location and by the end I'd have to start over again. For example, I did have one friend for over 3 years and I become friends of her friends by association. (Eh, except that I haven't contacted my HS friend since she sent me a belated friend break-up email 2-3 years ago.) As a result, I've become accustomed to spending time alone or having solitary hobbies from a young age. This is normal for me but every time someone asks me about my friends, I feel awkward, because I can only name some online friends. For clarification, I like my online friends and I'm not interested in meeting up because we don't really share that many aspects. I can speak from personal exp. that while it's OK to spend time discussing x topic online it's challenging to find other interests IRL meetings. I like online communities, blogs, and forums. I able to relate with people online easier than IRL and there's all kinds of hobbyist places for niche interests. However, they tend to be connected to a specific interest and once I've move on or care less I end up losing their friendship too. Right now, I have a few pen pals and online friends I keep in contact over email often. It's odd to admit that I just have no idea how to maintain long term friendships in person. I have tried joining clubs, school, and reading self-help books. Many of my friendships revolve around a common interest for example games or reading. At the start, I'll become extremely excited about discussing the topic and then the other person will slowly lose interest over time. In the end many of my old friends age out of common hobbies and I notice the distance because there's no relevant topics to discuss. Alright, I'm not great at small talk but I do make a effort to be engaged and ask polite questions during conversations. I don't think I'm actively driving away people who I've met by being rude or ignoring them. I do stop talking about my favorite topics if the other speaker shows signs of disinterest or boredom. I keep thinking there is some fundamental flaw that I'm not aware of that prevents me from being friends with people over awhile. It's as if every time I meet a person I'm trying to estimate how long they will keep in contact with me or get bored. In the past people have called me "aloof" or "distant" but I'm not actively shutting out people on purpose. I try to be relevant and a helpful friend as possible. For awhile I wondered if it was related to my depression or pessimistic outlook but I think I've always been like this even before. For example, I dislike it when people ask me if I date, because it's difficult to explain how I can't even maintain a friendship longer than 2-3 years and only if we attend the same school or location. Overall, I've accepted that it's a challenge for me to maintain friendships because I'm not exactly extroverted/outgoing. I don't want to impose myself on other people if they suddenly stop responding to my calls/emails. So, many of my friendships tend to "fade out" than end abruptly one day. However, I'm now concerned about the negative effects on my future career or networking opportunities. I don't expect to be best friends with my co-workers or every person with a slight connection to my interests at all. I'm worried that it will cause me to be isolated at work or close doors for careers due to my inept social skills. Side note: I have a history of social anxiety/ASD and in treatment atm. Previously. I'm curious if anyone has any advice to improve my situation or recommend resources for social skills/networking. Thanks.

As part of my continuing attempt to build a wireless bridge to bring the internet to my house, I have obtained two used Tranzeo TR902-11f 900Mhz wireless access points sans any power supply. Please help me find (cheaply) POE injectors for these WAPs. According to the data-sheet[pdf] they are supplied by POE at 18v 1.1a (output) with 7 watts max. I have never set up a POE device before, but I assume that I need two POE injectors at 18v 1.1a (output) but, do they also have to be specifically at 7 watts or is the datasheet telling me that 7 watts is the maximum output of the WAP? Also, in case anyone is wondering, trees with leaves do indeed form an intermittent but effective barrier to 2.4Ghz wireless signal transmission even at short distances (< 500ft) with no other barriers. Also, cheap 2.4Ghz panel antennas are not particularly directional. In addition, it's possible to find much cheaper non-Ubiquiti branded 900Mhz WAPs on your favorite internet auction website.

Many of the details in this question still apply. Logistics aren't that big of a deal anymore, and I'm chipping away ever so slowly at my social anxiety and fluency issue, but I'm still without prospects and now about $12k in debt on account of some reckless impulse spending and unpaid debt from college. Can the hivemind help get me out from under this? Snowstorm inside.Apologies for the word vomit but... I'm hoping that people will read at least some of the background information from my previous question, because I don't have the mental fortitude to elaborate again here. Short version: How can a 25 year old with cerebral palsy, massive debt, a pretty severe stutter, chronic fatigue lifted only temporarily by overconsumption of energy drinks, a weak work ethic ( with ADD) and no experience aside from a few extremely short volunteering stints get a decent job? All my life, people have held my hand, metaphorically and otherwise, and now, in the big scary adult world of interviews and competition, I can't help but feel like I don't stand a chance. This has given me incredibly thin skin and has nurtured a " what's the point?" narrative in my head that I can't get rid of. Aside from that, I don't know where to start, I don't know who to ask for help, and I don't know that I'll ever want or be interested enough in anything to pursue it despite all these snowflakes. Honestly? I'm afraid I might end up homeless, or in a minimum wage job at best, after my parents are no longer here. I want to start being an adult. I'm intelligent, sensitive and street-smart. Why do I feel like that counts for nothing in my life and what can I do to put that to use? Note: Before anyone asks, I've been in a combination of psych and speech therapy for about a year now. It's helped, but I still feel like all it's doing is putting a bandaid on my issues. I'm also on Prozac, which helped for about a year but isn't doing much now. I've tried Provigil, various benzos and other antidepressants, all with mixed, never impressive results.

The elasticity of the term "transgender" has forced a rethinking of what sex and gender mean; at least in progressive circles, what's determinative isn't people's chromosomes or their genitals or the way that they were brought up but how they see themselves. Having rejected this supposition, radical feminists now find themselves in a position that few would have imagined when the conflict began: shunned as reactionaries on the wrong side of a sexual-rights issue. It is, to them, a baffling political inversion. What Is a Woman?: The dispute between radical feminism and transgenderism.

My dog has fantastically, horribly, monstrously overactive anal glands. The vet believes it may be due to allergies, but so far no treatments have been successful. I am reaching the end of my rope.My beloved little gooberface dog unfortunately has wildly overactive anal glands. She doesn't seem to be able to express them on her own while pooping, as is the norm. Instead, they either fill to the point of painful swelling, where she scoots with an unholy vigor on everything from the sidewalk to the bath mat, often leaving her poor little butt super sore, or they leak horrible noxious ass juice, sometimes explosively expressing themselves all over me, my house, and and my sanity. THINGS WE HAVE TRIED: 01) Leaving them to sort themselves out on their own. This was a terrible failure, the details of which can be left to your imagination, Dear Readers, but know that I am now on couch #3 since April. 02) Having them expressed weekly at the vet's office. This is the current state of affairs, however she still expresses them at least once on her own in between vet squeezings. This is always in the house and never on a walk. This leaves me in a constant state of anxiety over when it might happen next. I dread coming home from work to find that she's done it on her bed, on the couch, on the wall. I am aware of the existence of Nature's Miracle, yes. 03) Bulking up her stools to the point of comic enormity. She gets canned pumpkin on her food, plus psyllium husks and flax seeds. Her poops are very large, very firm, very solid, perfectly regular, the Platonic ideal of dog poops. Thus far it has had no effect on the natural expression of her glands. 04) Putting her on a strict hypoallergenic diet. She's on a rare protein Royal Canin prescription diet, which has completely cured all her other allergy symptoms: no more flaky skin, no more dandruff, no more licking of paws due to foot fungus, no more chronic ear infections. It's all gone, except for this One Terrible Thing. 05) Warm compresses. I've been putting warm wet paper towel compresses on her butt for about 10 minutes before every walk, in the hopes of stimulating her glands to let go of their terrible bounty while she poops. This does not appear to have had any effect but she seems to find it soothing, especially on days when she's been scooting badly. 06) Tiny diapers. I got her a pair of doggy continence bloomers with a bunch of diaper inserts. Unfortunately, the only size that fits her also has an overlarge tail hole, which exposes her entire butthole, rendering them useless for butt juice protection. THINGS WE HAVE NOT YET TRIED BUT I AM WILLING TO ATTEMPT: 01) The vet has offered to teach me how to do the expression myself. I'm a little hesitant to try, not because it's revolting, although that is an unavoidable fact, but because I have a neck injury that causes problems with loss of feeling in my hands, and my grip is uncertain. I'm afraid I might oversqueeze and hurt her poor little butt. THINGS WE WILL NOT BE TRYING: 01) I'm aware that there is surgery to remove the glands, but the fact that it can result in permanent fecal incontinence makes it a no-go. I can barely deal with the butt gland issue, and I know for a fact that I would not be able to deal with a poop-filled house for the next 10 years of our lives. I would also feel like the world's hugest asshole if I asked the breeder to take her back once I basically broke her butt. The vet did recommend it as an option but admitted that there wasn't (yet) an actual medical necessity for doing it. Her glands aren't infected or impacted, they're just supercharged. The breeder has offered to take her back and give me a full refund. This is my last-ditch option, I love this silly little meatloaf and don't want to give her up. At this point I am open to pretty much any suggestions on how to defeat these monstrous fucking ass glands, up to and including actual prayer to the pantheon of deities of your choice. At her most horribly prolific they expressed startlingly copious amounts of fluid 4 times over 6 days. There were 2 full veterinary expressions during that time in addition to her explosions. I spent most of that week fantasizing about being crushed by a falling chunk of frozen space pee. I would also be glad to hear anyone's personal stories of success or failure with the ass gland surgery for their pets. Please help me keep my dog without losing my mind.

I'm considering attending a six-month web development bootcamp in San Francisco that runs from October to April, and I'm wondering what I can expect to pay for housing. I'm interested in learning both about cheaper arrangements like SROs in Chinatown and housing oriented towards students, as well as about what it might cost to get a room in a "normal" multi-bedroom apartment for that period.Notes: - The bootcamp is gSchool, located at 543 Howard Street. I have already been admitted and have a week to decide if I'm going to attend. - I speak/read Chinese. Mandarin only so far, but having looked at some learning materials for Cantonese I'm confident I can get myself up to a basic functional level by October if it'd be necessary to rent a place in Chinatown. - I may have the opportunity to attend the same bootcamp's Boulder, Colorado, location instead. SF tuition is about $2000 more expensive, plus the additional cost of living in SF, but my feeling is that the relative expense of SF is worth it due to increased opportunity to network and attend tech meetups in SF, and also because SF has a cool-sounding apprenticeship element of the course that Boulder won't have during the time I would attend. I would appreciate hearing affirming/dissenting opinions if anyone has them. Throwaway e-mail: sf.bootcamp.student@gmail.com

I own a house in TX that currently doesn't have a resident. Due to some issues that don't really matter for this question, the power got disconnected July 1. 4 weeks later, I assume the situation is dire. What is the best thing to do? Dispose of the whole fridge or get someone to clean it?The fridge and freezer had food in them (including frozen meat), and it is Texas (with no a/c) so I am confident that the situation is terrible. The power has now been turned on again, but I will not be back in TX for a month or so. What is the best thing to do? There are local friends/family that have a key, so they can let someone in that I hire, but I don't want to ask them to *do* cleaning because that seems terrible. In whatever case, I have no idea what kind of service to call to perform such a job. Advice?

I'm having guests over for a clambake and, because of dietary restrictions, will have to use vegetarian sausage instead of linguica or chorizo. I need your help figuring out what brand of vegetarian sausage to use--something that the meat-eaters won't mind.I've eaten and disliked the Lightlife 'Chorizo style' sausage, so I prefer not to use that. I have enjoyed the Soyrizo-brand sausage, but it doesn't stay in link form; it crumbles and falls apart, which is fine in a paella, but not really for a clambake. I've also tasted most of the Tofurky, Lightlife, and Morningstar Farms sausages. Ideally, I'd love to hear from someone who has made a clambake with such a substitution before. Keep in mind that my goal is to make something where the presence of the vegetarian sausage won't be deleterious to the clambake in any way.

My mother has terminal cancer, and I don't know how much time she has left. Others with experience losing a parent: what would I regret not doing with this time?Five months ago, I quit my job and moved home to be my mother's sole caregiver as she deals with terminal cancer. She was doing maintenance chemo until last month, when her oncologist said that at this point, the chemo is doing more harm than good, so it seems like she's moving out of the treatment phase and into the palliative care phase. She still has both good days and bad, ranging from being unable to leave her bed for 24 hours to working a full day (she's still technically full-time because she is amazingly tough and she enjoys working and wants to continue to do so until she can't). My father died suddenly several years ago, so I know from that experience that there are often things I wish I had asked him, conversations I wish we'd had, and experiences I wish we had shared. Now that my mother is dying, I'd love some suggestions from people who have been through the death of a parent on how to minimize these regrets (knowing that some regrets are unavoidable). I realize I should probably be able to answer this myself, given my experience with my father's death, but being a caregiver is exhausting, and I think I'll probably get a better list from people who have been through this and made it to the other side than if I try to sit down and make one myself. I already made her a journal with questions about herself and her life for her to answer (based on advice I found in this question), so she's been doing one a day throughout the year, and I've really enjoyed reading her responses and talking to her about them. But I'd still appreciate suggestions for things that I should ask her before she dies, as I'm certain I overlooked some things I could have asked her when I made the journal. But I'm also looking for more practical questions as well, like, "what diseases is our family at risk for?", as well as questions like "when were you in love?". Anything I would regret not knowing the answer to. And for her good days, I'd also appreciate suggestions for activities we can do together that I would regret not doing with her before she died. Her biggest constraints at this point are fatigue and eating. She can't eat very much at once, due to the nature of her disease (it's appendiceal cancer, which has moved to multiple organs, including the colon), but activities revolving around eating may still be okay for her good days, as she still enjoys food...just not in large quantities (which make her sick). One of the most difficult aspects of her impending death is that she will never get to be a grandmother, which is something I know she desperately wants. I want to have children some day, but after giving the question a lot of thought, having them in the midst of caring for her would be a terrible idea for multiple reasons. So anything along the lines of Things I Will Want My Children to Have or Know About Her would also be great. Maybe videos or audio recordings of her? But recordings of her doing what? Some extra information: Here are some things my mother loves, in case this information is extra helpful: her dog, board/card games, watching TV as a family, bookstores and fiction, the beach, swimming, geocaching, walking/hiking, her job as a teacher. I also have a brother who lives and works out of state, and who comes home as often as he can (every two months or so). My mother also has a husband who lives and works out of state and comes home every other weekend. Both of my mother's parents are still alive, but they are elderly and live half a country away, and are not dealing particularly well with my mother's disease (so having them visit is not an unequivocally good idea). I'm living nearby with my husband, but stay with her when I need to. I've done a fair bit of searching for topics like this, but most of the "my parent is dying" questions revolve around caring for the parent or self-care, which is not what I'm looking for, as there are already many questions addressing those issues (1, 2, 3, etc.). I'm hoping for concrete suggestions of things that I can do with my mother that will make me feel that I spent her last days/weeks/months well. Thanks so much for your help.

This is a two-part question.... I have the idea of a "stone soup" kind of fall gathering where everyone brings something to make a huge pot of vegetable stock. I need to know what makes good stock – what to put in and what to leave out – and then what should I make at the party for us all to eat and enjoy some of this stock right away?I have a CSA this year and have been squirreling away all sorts of odds and ends in the freezer to make vegetable stock. However, in doing some actual research into this idea, it seems like the jury is mixed on what I should be including verses not (broccoli? carrot ends?). And to contribute to the "stone soup" party idea, I'd like to send out a list of "these are good" ingredients to the guests so that they can bring something appropriate to throw in. Then, once we have the stock, I'd like to make a simple dish to show off our hard work. I'm thinking ramen? What's a good how-to for ramen or asian noodles? If you have another dish that would be simple and show off good veggie stock, please share!

Philby's boss was Sir Stewart Menzies, who, we are told, "rode to hounds, mixed with royalty, never missed a day at Ascot, drank a great deal, and kept his secrets buttoned up behind a small, fierce mustache. He preferred women to men and horses to both." Menzies was an amateur at a time when his adversaries were professionals. Philby's fellow Soviet spy Donald Maclean was a mess. But since he was a mess with the right accent and background he easily found a home in the British spy service. At one point, Macintyre says, Maclean "got drunk, smashed up the Cairo flat of two secretaries at the U.S. embassy, ripped up their underwear, and hurled a large mirror off the wall, breaking a large bath in two. He was sent home, placed under the care of a Harley Street psychiatrist, and then, amazingly, after a short period of treatment, promoted to head the American desk at the Foreign Office." Kim Philby, the Soviet spy who infiltrated MI6, is the subject of a Malcolm Gladwell article in The New Yorker. Gladwell argues that Philby's story is not about spying but "the hazards of mistrust." He is interviewed on a New Yorker podcast about his article. Gladwell's article is also a review of Ben Macintyre's book on Philby, A Spy Among Friends. Gladwell reviewed Macintyre's previous book, Operation Mincemeat and argued that spy agencies might be more trouble than they're worth.

In 2008, strange flyers started showing up in the streets of San Francisco. If you followed up on them, they led you to a discrete office in the financial district. Inside was the Induction Center for the Jejune Institute. Sit in the lounge chair provided, watch the induction video (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3), and then.... Well.... And then things really got weird... Would you like a better understanding of this, the Jejune Institute? Would you like to know what it really was—what was fact, what was fiction, who was paying for it and why, and what happened to people after they were inducted? Good luck. Start here: Where Else? Explorinating Nonchalance, which provides a first-hand account of the Jejune Institute and surrounding antics/cult-related intrigue/mystery/adventure. It is long, it is complex, but at least time travel is kept to a minimum. Then check out these photo sets on Flickr, from Everfalling, that walk you through different parts of the Jejune Institute: Act 1, Act 2, and the 4/30 Protest. (All flyer links above go to images in these sets.) You can also read Yelp reviews from those who visited the Induction Center, as well as a quick write-up of the place at Laughing Squid. And then you can get completely lost in the Unfiction Forum dedicated to the subject. You may also want to check out this documentary about the whole thing: The Institute, which is available on Netflix and Amazon On Demand Video. However, it might leave you without all your questions answered. To quote the Huffington Post's review, "if anybody reading this piece can explain the film, or the Jejune Institute, or its principles, I'd be eternally grateful." (More: The Bold Italic interviews the filmmaker.) Last, but certainly not least, nonchalance.com, the website for the creators behind the whole thing.

So... what's the best satin, low-lustre or eggshell paint brand?Am I completely wrong in this assumption that we'll be able to match paint relatively well across brands? We currently like a Glidden color but not sure of the quality of the eggshell finish. Can you recommend a great satin, low-lustre or eggshell paint that will last with some wear (our flat cheap paint has not worn well over the years) or confirm the quality of the Glidden eggshell? We're not that hard on our paint, though, so we think we just had exceptionally cheap, flat paint on there originally. Thanks!
