Can anyone recommend a stream/river/lake or two within an hour of Leesburg, VA to go fly fishing this weekend? Push comes to shove I'll just drive up to Harper's Ferry and wade into the Potomac, but something a bit more secluded and slower flowing would be better.

What is the easiest-to-fly kite that I can buy? I want to walk into a field with my five-year-old and fly with as little skill, experience and effort as possible. I'm seriously considering just "flying" a helium balloon, but that's cheating. What's one step removed from that?

How is it that a tiny housefly has enough energy to drive me mad by flying around my house for an hour or more? How long could it keep going?

Do very young children (she's 20 months) need--as in absolutely required, not simply 'discretionary,' 'recommended,' or 'helpful'--any sort of identification in order to board a domestic U.S. flight and fly in a parent's lap? [more inside]

Where can I procure dried venus fly trap? Not extract, not the live plant - just the dried organic herb.

A very large media company is interested in talking to my small, three-person start-up. They're in LA, we're in NYC. How do we gently ask them to fly us out for a meeting? Or should we pay our own way? Not to be picky, but: as interesting as theoretical answers might be, I'm really looking for advice from someone who's been in a similar situation, and how they handled it. Thanks!

If you believe climate change is real, bad, and man-made: does that mean it's wrong to take a flight or drive a car? Are there any reasonable excuses?

How long did it take to fly from London (England) to Tokyo (Japan) in 1973? For bonus points how much did it cost?
Were there differences between the airlines at the time?

Are there recreational places with giant indoor fans that blow you up into the air and give you a simulated indoor experience of flying -- or did I just dream this idea? I can't remember...

Any of you guys have experience with RTW (round the world)
air travel tickets? Any particular ones to recommend? I have been looking into STA
off and on, and several other options have been uncovered. But it seems all the data
I can find is depressingly out of date. I tried futzing around on this webboard
, but, not knowing much at all about airports, pro-level flying, and the like, I was incredibly intimidated to the point of "not knowing where to start." [more inside]

What do you do if you see someone with their fly unzipped in public? I spotted a well-dressed man this morning on the subway with his fly down and I felt like I wanted to warn him before he headed into work. But what, if anything, should I say? XYZPDQ (examine your zipper pretty darn quick)? Something else?
