Coulda swore there was an AskMe about a site that would allow you to punch in a URL and see what the site looks likes on different browsers/platforms... but of course I can't find it. Anyone recall this or am I imagining it?

Looking For An Old AskMe Thread

I'm looking for a post that I swear I saw on AskMe a while ago. It was a long discussion of why pop (soda, fountain drinks, etc) taste better out of Styrofoam cups than waxy paper or plastic (more inside).

old-fashioned names

Can anyone help me find that great AskMe post from a while back that was about finding a nice, semi-unusual, old-fashioned boy's name for a baby?

Can someone help me find an AskMeFi post?

Can someone help me find an AskMeFi post? I've spent ages searching and scouring the tags but can't find it. It may have been a year ago or so (not sure of exact date) but the question was about exercises for helping people get to know each other in a big new group - the context may have been a work conference. AskMeFi users suggested a lot of different techniques that a group organiser could employ to get strangers going together. Also if anyone could give advice on how best to find a tricky old post like this in future, please go right ahead.

I'm looking for one or more past AskMe threads

I'm looking for one or more past AskMe threads in which people shared how weight-gain or weight-loss affected the way they were treated by other people. I know I've read these stories, but I'm just not finding them. It's possible that the they were shared in threads that weren't actually about obesity, but how others perceive us. Can somebody with better search skills help me?

I'm looking for an AskMe question

I'm looking for an AskMe question: someone who was offered a job but doesn't want to respond until they find out if they're going to get their dream job which they also applied for. I think it's pretty recent.

I've been searching the archives for like half an hour. Hope me, Metafilter!

Help me find this AskMe post

Help me find this AskMe post (what I remember): an American was thinking about traveling abroad, and was curious if, as an American, they would be unsafe/uncomfortable (in regard to foreigners' negative opinions of Americans, etc). I have been searching but to no avail. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would certainly appreciate it!

Looking for high-quality men's goods

Someone posted a thread (I think in the green) wherein makers/sellers of really high-quality / artisan quality mens goods were listed - briefcases, clothes, luggage. i found the pinhole camera dealer listed there, but i would like to find the thread and the other recommendations listed there. Any ideas? I tried all the searches I could for mens, gifts, leather, goods, quality, outfitters, etc., no luck. Hope it's OK to post this here?

Looking for a (deleted?) AskMeFi thread.

Looking for a (deleted?) AskMeFi thread. One of the first responses sarcastically mentioned being annoyed at smudges on his gold bars...

I lost an askme thread: song sample calling for doctors

I lost an askme thread. There was one some time back asking for the source of a sample in a song where someone calls for certain military personnel.

I've tried Google and tried various AskMe tags, but I can't find it. Did I imagine it (including the responses suggesting that the poster look on various stock cue CDs)?

Does anyone remember an AskMe thread

Does anyone remember an AskMe thread about people who sleep with their feet sticking out of the covers? My searching skills are failing me...

Lost & Found

I'm confused by this Ask Mefi question and just as confused by the "best" answers. Although a question is asked in the first sentence, the focus of the post is to use Ask Mefi as some sort of artsy fartsy lost and found.

Can anyone help me find a not-quite-so-recent (last six months) AskMe post?

Can anyone help me find a not-quite-so-recent (last six months) AskMe post? It was about someone who suddenly found himself or herself making good money in a steady job and he or she wanted some kind of advice. If I recall, the question actually mentioned the ballpark salary. I'm beginning to think I imagined it -- I've been searching for an hour (job, career, salary, money, making, bringing) and can't seem to find it.
