sun beautiful sun

We have motion-activated lights in our new office, and office plants that need light over the weekend. I'm looking for some kind of plug-in kinetic sculpture that we can have on a plant timer, that'll run (hopefully without being too annoying) during the day to keep the lights on.

Trouble Turning On

I've got a lamp plugged into a wall switch controlled outlet.

Help me find some minimalist footwear?

Help me find the right pair of minimalist shoes! I've been a member of a Crossfit gym for six months, which means I've been exposed to the peer pressure regarding Vibram FiveFingers. Plus, I'm starting to travel a lot (and lightly) and want a pair of running shoes that have a small footprint (heh) when packed in a suitcase. Recommendations for this recreational runner? Are Vibrams a good option? Which model? How do I size them? I'm training for next October's Portland Marathon, if that makes a difference. Bonus points for shoes available at REI (though that's not a requirement).

Should I turn off the SRS light on the instrument panel on my 2003 Honda?

The SRS light on my 2003 Honda Civic comes on when the ignition is turned on and remains on while the car is being driven. I googled this and understand that Hondas as well as other cars have this problem. I can take it to a mechanic to have it diagnosed and repaired. Or I can turn it off myself which I'm tempted to do since it appears that Honda has a faulty system that has nothing to do with the airbag --just the light. But there is a small part of me that wonders and is concerned if something could be wrong with the airbag. Does anyone have experience with this?

A 20 million candle power lighthouse

I have a candle and its brightness is exactly one candle power or candela. If I buy a 10,000 candle power torch/flashlight, does that mean it's 10,000 times brighter (and what does that mean) or that I can see it 10,000 times further away? Are these the same thing and why do they seem unbelievable?
