Heads Up: Deleted Loquacious post As dedicated refreshers of AskMe may have noticed, this post from loquacious asking for help was deleted. Some of us may remember that a couple of years ago he was stranded in hospital and MeFites bailed him out. He is self-reporting as having burned a lot of bridges, but it sounds like he's genuinely in trouble.

He's in Seattle. Is there anyone local who can reach out to him?

Backing into a parking space? Do you back into parking spaces (esp. in parking decks)? If you do, why?

People back into spaces in my parking deck all the time, and I really don't understand it - it almost always takes longer (they often have to back in and out several times to get straight).

Maybe it's just that I'm not that good at backing into spaces, so I never do it..

Umm...remember me? I sure remember you bunch! I missed you lot. Kinda went underground for a bit (3 kids plus a full time job does that to you). But out of sight definitely wasn't out of mind.
So...ummm...what's new?
new television What shows have started in the last year or two that I should be watching? I tend to not pick shows up until they've been playing for a season or two (exceptions: The Americans; Veep) because I want to see how they go. So the above shows are the newest shows I've been watching.

I hear Orphan Black is good? Anything else?
