Have you ever had a picture or video go viral? What was the story, and how did it get picked up?
I took a picture of a woman holding up a sign that said "I SKIPPED CHEMO TO SEE CHIPPER" at the Braves game on Sunday, tweeted/tumbl'd/facebooked it, and it got picked up by multiple news sources! She got tickets behind home plate for the next home game--I'm hoping she'll get to meet the man himself!

so i was on the pill for 3 weeks and stopped (because of crazy mood swings). i usually gain weight on the pill but i didnt notice any changes this time. its been 2 weeks since i've stopped, and ive noticed that ive gained weight. ive also been breaking out after i stopped. do you think these could be an "after" side effect of the pill?
Bank of America started doing mobile deposits - yay! Their website is being really vague though - after you upload the photos of your check, "you'll get a confirmation and instructions on what to do with the check." What does that mean, TQC? Am I going to have to mail the check in? Because I'd rather drive down the street than waste a stamp.

Every time I start a new job I wake up thinking i'm meant to be doing whatever job it is and that i've snuck into bed.
How would you approach quitting your job if you were in a similar scenario:
1. Your boss is swamped with work and you'd really leave him/her high and dry for awhile if you quit
2. A new person would require months of training to take over your position
3. Basically you'd be creating a ton of extra work for people to cover your job for awhile
ETA: Also, if you are quitting without having a new job in place first, what is a nice way of saying you are leaving because you just can't stand the work anymore?
When you were a child, what was your favorite television show?
Can you think of any books meant for toddlers or very young children that have a geeky bent to them? I'm not looking for chapter books or novels: just those little short books that parents read to their babies before the babies really learn to read on their own.
I already know about My Little Geek ABC Book, but I'm looking for more ideas. My nephew's going to be around 1 year old come Christmastime, and his parents are brilliant geeky people, so I'd like to incorporate both of those things into my present for him. (Please note that I'm not posting the dreaded "what do I get for ____?" question because I don't think my nephew's going to care very much about the actual present, no matter what I get him.)

So I haven't bought a new game console in years, when is the best time to get a good deal? I have my eye on the 3DS XL, but $186 is the cheapest I can find it and that still seems too high for me. Are prices typically better during black friday - December?
Alternatively, where's the best place to buy refurbs at? I'm assuming most places won't have them right now since it's so new, but I'm looking to get one in the next 6 months or so.
