Help me find the askme about references? October 19, 2013 6:54 PM   Subscribe

Not academic references. I think someone was giving something handmade to his or her brother, and someone else might have suggested almanacs, but I can't find it, or anything like it. I'm looking for lists of useful things to be able to look up on a piece of paper, back of a book. I know my times table, and don't find much need to convert between weights. But my damned ADhDled brain can't remember or think of things I look up repeatedly.

Conversion constants: e.g. 2.54 centimeters/inch

To add to LobsterMitten's great list, this post on the "ultimate utility tattoo": Give me your clothes, your boots and your mathematical proofs.

Also, a handy chart to have if you go time traveling.
