I'm trying to think of a movie where a man is having an affair with another woman. During one of the encounters while he should be watching his child, the child accidentally dies I think by falling into a pool. After feeling grieved, he goes through some sort of cave in a park and goes back in time and can make things right again. Apparently, there's something weird about the new neighborhood he's in (spoilers so I won't say more).
Anybody know what the movie is called?!

An elderly family friend has an original poster (known as BG074) and program from the 1967 Jefferson Airplane and Grateful Dead concert at the O'Keefe Centre in Toronto. He is interested in selling the poster and program, and I've offered to help out. According to Wolfgang's Vault
, "BG074 is among the rarest of posters. There are hard to verify stories that the original cache of posters was confiscated at the Canadian border by border patrol, but whether the posters were seized or simply put away by contented Canadians, this summer concert made a big impression." Accordingly, I've seen auctions and online memorabilia stores listing this poster in the $5,000 and up range, and the program for close to $1,000.
What is the best way to authenticate and sell these items? I contacted Wolfgang's Vault but they don't normally purchase individual items, and the art dealers I've been in touch with don't deal with rock memorabilia. Is there a Sotheby's of rock? Is eBay even worth considering?

After eating lunch at a friends house today I was shocked to see that his dog was chewing on a fleshy dear head found in the woods. Now I'm worried that I could have contracted worms from the dog if it had been chewing on the head before it licked my hand when I arrived. Is there anything I can do early on to prevent infection? I don't want worms in my stomach, brain, or anywhere else!

Can anyone tell me the name of the Scandinavian movie that has people’s deceased friends and relatives returning from the dead? Only they’re not zombies — they look rather well, in fact — and seem rather confused about why and how they’ve managed to return. They try to go on with their lives, taking jobs, resuming family duties… but strains appear, and social tensions. Plus, they just *aren’t* quite the same as they were before. [more inside]

I'm working as a producer in New York on a mid-scale documentary that is exploring the way we as a culture relate to death. I was having breakfast this morning with the director when we both realised that neither of us has actually ever been in a room with a dead body. Now, I realise that this is an incredibly odd question, but I'm really not sure how to go about arranging it. We would like to see a dead body before it has been attended by funeral directors and if possible to film our reactions to it while in the room, but more importantly have the experience of seeing one and filming our expectations and reactions.
I'm assuming I can't just ring up the NYC morgue and ask. Anyone have any ideas about the best and most respectful way to do this?

Dead actors and alternate universes? Does anyone remember this? Folks recall reading death notices of actors, who then turn out not to be dead, and people use this as (somewhat facetiously) an indication of parallel universes? I'm thinking of Robert Duvall in the Apostle, but I'm sure that there's other canonical examples as well.

We had a new grass lawn put in at the start of the year. Before long, it had developed yellow spots: pic 1
, pic 2
has been brought in for questioning. She did not confess, only licking the detective on advise of counsel.
1) Is she likely the real culprit?
2) What remedies are available? If it is her, I'd like to note that the whole point of the lawn was so that she could do her business out there. We'll get her a potty pad and encourage her not to go on the grass, but I'm doubtful that she'll always go where we want. [more inside]

I'm looking for flooded woods in New England. I want to film something in a place where dead trees are coming up from the water. I see this frequently along the highway, and it's probably caused by reshaping the land to build the roads. Does anyone know of any parks in New England where this or something similar is happening?

Why do you never see dead birds in the city?
I live in the city and close to water. My surroundings are full of ducks, swans, pigeons (yich) and gulls. Yet I never see one dead, except maybe if it was run over by a car. Why is that? Is there some secret bird cemetery they go to to die? Surely the gutters should be full of dead pigeons or something. God knows there's enough of them around. Or are they eaten by insects in record time?
Disclaimer: I do not have an actual wish to see dead birds. I've just been wondering about this since forever.

I came home yesterday to find that we've now got internet in our house - great. The only problem is, though I'm able to get a perfect signal in the sitting room, which is where the wireless router is situated, if I go the five metres or so from there to my bedroom, the connection rapidly deteriorates to the point that I can't even open Metafilter.
I'm running a Macbook with a fully-udated version of Tiger, so what gives? [more inside]
