I have never had many close friends or intimate relationships, and i know that other people find my behaviour off-putting. But due to politeness, nobody will tell me! What profession's job is to just plain tell me what's not ok with my basic behaviour (eg voice volume, personal space) so i can stop pushing everyone away without meaning to? Thanks! [more inside]

vacapinta asked this way back in 2004 but the answers provided did not satiate my curiosity so I'm asking it again: What are these circling (or squaring) flies?
I live in San Francisco but I saw them when I lived in Southern California too.
I don't have a pressing reason I need the information, I'm just curious as all get-out about them. [more inside]

Dogs seem to be easy to train to do tricks, cats, not so.
I have taught her to eat treats off the furniture (and she often fluffs that) but not much else. She doesn't respond to commands or perform any tricks on demand. Can you give me hints or tips I might employ to make my cat become a star?

When I open the doors and windows sometimes these little gnats/flies come in and proceed to fly in small circles in the center of the room. I am sure many of you are familiar with this. What are they? Why are they doing this? (more inside) [more inside]
