Yesterday i dyed my hair blue underneath my regular blonde.
I am normally very low maintenance, like wash and go, and didn't really think through how to take care of it.
Looking for specific suggestions on products I can pick up today or order online that will keep the blue as blue as possible. Should I try dry shampoos? I honestly have just been using aussie shampoo since the 80s, so trying to find a new product seems oversized.
I was told to keep the blonde and blue separate when I wash my hair, like put the blue in a ponytail, wash the blonde and put conditioner on it, and then wash the blue. If anyone has managed to do this, tips for this also welcome.

In the last few weeks, blue stains have shown up on my daughter's shirts after washing them. They weren't there before I washed the clothes. They don't show up on anyone else's clothes. I can't get them out. Any ideas about how to get the stains out and how to prevent other shirts from getting stained? [more inside]

here's a photo.
it appears to be aluminum and it's weighty for its size. It was among the possessions of an elderly, career US Navy retiree. Any ideas? Phone's for scale-- I know what that is.

I've noticed some recurrent patterns in music videos (use of numbers, colors, etc.) that have piqued my interest. I'm wondering if any industry insiders can shed any light or if anyone has explored this concept academically or otherwise. [more inside]

I've bought several packs of neutral-natural smokey brown eyeshadow collections (including these two
) just trying to look natural. Instead, they all turn blue-ish when put on my eyelids, and I look exactly like I'm wearing artificial colors.
Trial and error is getting way too expensive! Has anyone had any luck with finding a set of browns that are actually brown?

I am looking for "left" or "blue state" American flags or patches in which all the colored part of the flag is blue (eg blue stripes instead of red). Maybe I just cannot get the correct search terms, but I have not been able to find these. Anyone know where such an animal can be got?

I need to buy (gack!) my own health insurance. I'm in New York state. I'm looking for very good coverage. Would rather pay more for high-quality, flexible, non-nitpicky coverage (if such a thing exists), and then economize by opting for high deductibles.
I once lived in CT for a short while, and loved Anthem Blue Cross. But I've heard horror stories about Empire Blue Cross in NY. What other options are out there?

Why is the fountain blue? Here in Silicon Valley, two parks have Geneva-style fountains in the center of their lakes -- one in Sunnyvale, another in Cupertino. Instead of white, like in Switzerland, the water's a kind of azure turquoise. Why? A caustic acid to burn anyone foolish enough to take a dip? Chemicals to eradicate algae? Please advise.

You buy a bag of delicious frozen blueberries and empty its contents into a plastic tub which you keep in the freezer. When the last of the berries have been consumed, a light pinkish-red residue remains in the tub. You proceed to rinse out the container, and after a few seconds under running water the color suddenly and dramatically changes to a deep dark blue. Why? [more inside]

Look at GoogleMaps over Beijing. About a quarter of the buildings have rooftops that are red or blue. And the color is really strong in comparison to everything else. Has the image been colored, or are they just painted? Either way... Why?

I'm getting a Blue Screen of Death on startup (Windows XP Pro) which says that the "problem" (whatever it may be) is being caused by a file called klif.sys. Googling around indicates it's a Kaspersky file, and I do indeed have their anti-virus software installed on my system. But I haven't found any solutions, and I can't get past this BSOD. Is there any hope for me? (More details inside.) [more inside]
