Is there a way to prevent people from throwing stuff down a rooftop sewer vent?

Is there some sort of cap that can be put on a rooftop sewer vent to prevent to people from throwing stuff down it? My roommates and I recently endured a prolonged plumbing disaster (other people's sewage bubbling up in our toilets and tubs, flooded hallways, bailing out tubs and toilets with garbage cans at 3 a.m., etc.) and we are eager to avert a future crisis. The plumbers finally discovered large pieces of wood in our pipe, which we can only assume were thrown down from the roof, since they seem impossible to flush. There is easy access to the roof of our four-story building, and we're not interested in having some drunken putz foul up our plumbing again.

Is Greece the new Nigeria? Tell me if this is a scam!

Help me figure out if this is a scam and if so how? We're looking to rent an apartment in NYC and have found somewhere through Craigslist that looks great but the process is complicated by the fact that the potential Landlord is out of the country. He's sent us an email (contents after the jump) on how he proposes getting us the keys and us completing the contract if we like the apartment. I can't see how it's a scam but it smells kind of odd... Mefite detectives, go to it! [more inside]

What kind of spider is here, hanging out above my bed? I would guesstimate that from leg to leg the guy you see there is probably 1.5"-2". Is it the somewhat hard to identify brown recluse (who isn't even supposed to be native to Chicago)? Will I die? How best can I kill it from a distance?
