Looking for more kind TV

2020 has ruined my ability to enjoy TV that is anything other than gentle and kind. I’ve watched all the great British baking show that Netflix has to offer, same with Queer Eye and Schitt’s Creek.

I'd like to read/do some recreational math. Recommend a book

I'd like to read about and do some some recreational math. Like puzzles and stuff like that. I enjoyed the Euclid game very much. I'm leaving this pretty broad, but basically I'd mostly like to DO, but it's ok if there's some reading/learning stuff in between the doing. But I'm not looking for a primarily reading book.

Aquarium for the lazy?

Man, I sure would love to look at a fish tank now that I'm working from home every day. Only problem is, I'm lazy and I get bored of things easily. Is there a way I can set up a small aquarium that would require a very little in the way of maintenance after the first couple months? [more inside]

Trying to settle an argument. Bob says it's perfectly fine to answer the simple questions that do the rounds on Facebook sometimes (the one in question is "Do you personally know anyone who has tested positive or died due to the corona virus?", posted by someone Bob doesn't know).

Tell me about your first year as a first time home buyer.

Our offer to purchase a house was accepted. We are now in the anxiety-filled waiting period while the inspection, appraisal, and mortgage underwriting processes are completed. We are also emptying out the tank in order to go through with the purchase and while I feel really great about the house we are buying, it's pretty nerve racking. In order to soothe my nerves, I am constantly googling for stories about home buyers. Can you tell me about your first year as a first time home buyer? [more inside]
