Wheelchair refurbishing in LA?

I saw an AskMe post once about activities in LA, and one of the answers mentioned some group that does cool stuff like refurbishing wheelchairs in LA, and now I can't find it. [more inside]

Shit Fetish Ask MeFi Post

I once saw an Ask MeFi post regarding, if my memory serves me correctly, a man who wanted advice on how to deal with a girlfriend who had a shit fetish. Help me find that post. [more inside]

Need help finding poignant AskMe answer regarding the road to lawyerdom

Trying to find what I think was an AskMe (or possibly MeFi) comment from a while back, wherein the commenter outlines the fictional life story of someone whose aim is to make a lot of money so they can be happy, but ends up missing the mark along the way and turns into someone rather unhappy (but with the money).

Will Work For Work

I'm looking for a post--either on the front page or in Ask MetaFilter--about a website that offered work-for-trade, or work-for-services, or some such. I remember the site could be used, for example, by a bricklayer and a painter, where the painter needed a new patio and the bricklayer needed his house painted--sort of an eBay for trade skills. I can't remember if it was an FPP, or a link posted as part of a comment, or an answer to an AskMetaFilter question. Anyone?

Long lost link

I'm looking for a puzzle that was linked to in one of the askme comments a little over 6 months ago...

Where's that great parody of askme-as-life-helper?

A while back someone posted to meta a great little parody of the sort of sequence of questions we're all familiar with where someone uses askme to help them through absolutely every stage of their life. Where is it? I can't seem to find.

What was that post about household rules?

Does anyone remember an AskMe post from a year or so ago where a list of household (maybe food specific) rules were generated and the OP was advised to print out the post and put it up for housemates to read?

Missing Thread

Quick question: A couple weeks ago someone asked how to get a job in England as an American who just graduated from college. I can't find that thread, can anyone here help me track it down?

Technical aspects of photography AskMe sought

a two-for-one question.
There was a post on AskMe about camera use that showed up on the side bar awhile back, had to do understanding what the technical aspects of photography meant and how they interrelate. I glanced through the tags and search features and didn't see it, anyone have an idea where it might be? And secondly, is there a way to search past items on the blue's sidebar?

Do you remember that...? site

This is a neat site for those "name that movie from random bits of plot" questions that pop up on askme. Not sure where else this might go.

Help find really good ADD/ADHD thread

Hiya folks! (Say it all together now, okay?: "Hi, Shane." Thanks, that made me feel good.) I've taken an interest in ADD/ADHD lately and I seem to remember a really good AskMe thread that I can't find now. It looks as if it was deleted. More inside.

Help me find this thread

There was a thread a while ago (on the green I believe) about a mefi member who had a friend who was considering becoming a police officer. I've tried searching for the thread, but can't find it. Does anyone have a link for it?

NYT quotes AskMe - I think

Hey, doesn't the following quote from this article in today's NYT (reg. req., etc.) come from MeFi? Or AskMe? Searching isn't doing it for me.

"I like a lot of the names I see on spam e-mails because they're completely abstract, with little conception of culture or traditional sounds," said a posting by someone using the name Oissubke, a self-described fiction writer. "They jump out. They're memorable. They may not work for Grisham or Shakespeare, but they're ideal for my own writing style."
