Getting rid of a (bird) corpse?

I just opened the attic door and discovered at least two, possibly three, dead birds - like, rural style pigeons or something - lying at the bottom of the stairs. Birds don't just lie there generally, so I assume they're dead. I am completely freaking out. What do I do? [more inside]

Help me recapture the magic of my favorite pair of shoes.

Almost exactly 10 years ago I bought an amazing pair of shoes by Privo. This is the only pic I can find of this style. I wore them everywhere for three or four years and finally reluctantly got rid of them. Clarks bought Privo a while ago and the quality doesn't seem to be as good. Can you suggest other options?

Halliday & Resnick Editions

I picked up the first edition of Halliday & Resnick's Physics from my local bookshop. My goal is to work through it (along with a calculus text) for fun and profit. Will I be missing out on anything important by using the original 1960's text, rather than one of the more recent ones (now titled Fundamentals of Physics)?

Pet options? Is a dog irresponsible?

Me previously and previously. Sadly, the surgery wasn't successful-- the cancer returned, and I'm saying my goodbyes this week. Yesterday I was asked if I could adopt two bonded senior dogs. Obviously, I can't for the foreseeable future, but now I'm thinking about possibly getting a dog as a next pet. Looking for opinions or relevant experience. [more inside]

Speaker for damp noisy environment

Looking for a <$100 speaker that will play music loudly in a big greenhouse with lots of noisy fans (more than twenty regular fans for air movement and three giant fans that run the heating system). I'd like to either plug in or bluetooth a music source and I'm okay with plugging in the speaker. Do I want a portable bluetooth speaker or can I get something cheaper and better in terms of sound volume if I go the non-portable route? [more inside]

GG Allin on the radio - fact or fiction?

Decades ago, when I was working at a college radio station in Canada, I was told that after GG Allin's death a rogue college radio broadcaster (at a station in the Maritimes?) fully devoted his drive time slot to the art of GG Allin and the Murder Junkies. The fallout was allegedly priceless. [more inside]

What Twitter feeds do you follow, and why?

I'm looking to diversify the Twitter feeds that I follow (out with sports, in with other subjects), so I'm looking for good Twitter feeds by people/publications in the humanities fields, popular science and/or the media. If you can add a bit about why a particular feed is worth following, so much the better. Thanks!

How to care for pretty new car?

I've just received a wonderful and unexpected gift in the form of a shiny red 2016 Toyota Corolla LE.

Can you find these Cold War matryoshka?

In 2006 or so I bought a set of nesting dolls at a Salvation Army store in San Francisco. There were 5-6 dolls and they were all Cold War leaders: Gorbachev, Thatcher, Reagan, etc. I thought they were the coolest thing on earth, but gave them to someone as a gift. I'd love to find the same set again and buy them again. There's no chance of contacting the person I gave them to. I keep searching eBay and googling but can't find them. Can you help?
