I "remember" a proposed project by Christo and Jeanne-Claude to dye the fog that comes through the Golden Gate between San Francisco and Marin County. I don't think it ever came to fruition, but I do think it was proposed. Am I making that up? [more inside]

How do I keep my glasses from fogging up while skiing? Just got back into (downhill) skiing but I wear glasses now, and peering through the fog that forms on them when I'm wearing goggles is making me crazy, plus I can't see things like icy spots or fallen snowboarders. Are there some sort of secret techniques for preventing this?

My company is upgrading a few student labs from XP to 7. We do not want to manually activate each machine after deploying our image, nor do we want to run a licensing server, as our network for the labs is very small. We are using HP machines that came with professional edition pre-installed, so we can legally deploy a new Windows image on the machines.
Anybody know how to manage licenses in a more elegant manner when deploying Windows 7?

FogFilter. Flying SFO to LAX on Monday morning (April 5) on United -- if I really need to get to LAX on time should I buy another ticket on Southwest out of OAK? [more inside]

Apropos of nothing, why would the wiring going to the fog lights on a US 2002 VW New Beetle have an extra unattached plug on it? This is not the lowest model, but came with the fog lights standard. I wonder if one of the upscale versions had fog lamps with two bulbs in each light or something that would have required another plug. On second look, it occurs only on the drivers side wiring, the passenger side looks normal. Please stop me from agonizing over this superfluous detail!

Possibly the stupidest question ever: what are lights at night supposed to look like? That is, street lamps, stoplights, porch lights, etc. [more inside]

One of the features of Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion Bathroom
was a fog gun
shower. It was supposed to spray atomized water at high pressure, over 200 psi, and get you clean with less than a cup of water. Would this work? Has this ever been made? [more inside]
