Should I worry about the stranger who knocked on my door?

How much should I worry about the sketchy character I paid to clean leaves from our front yard this afternoon? I haven't had a sleepless night in ages, but my brain has decided to obsess over the possibly foolish thing I did today. [more inside]

We fought the law and the law... won't do anything.

Help! We know who broke into our house and stole our computers (we intercepted a laptop), but the detective is either totally incompetent or totally disinterested in helping us. What do we do? [more inside]

How does one properly break in a fitted baseball cap?

I've always disliked the way that fitted baseball caps (especially the MLB-standard New Era 5950) fit, as they sit too high on the crown of my head. I've heard of various mojo that one can perform (including cutting out the mesh at the front of the cap, showering in it, etc.) to make them fit better, but was wondering if there might be someone with more practical experience out there. This link is the only one I've found that's even slightly relevant, and remains a bit vague on the whole mesh-butchering thing.
