Meta-art-historians: Can anyone help me identify this luminous still life painting
? The fruit is almost old-masterish, but the cocktail glass with the pink liquid looks more modern. What do you think is the liquid in the glass?

I saw this mysterious item on a kayaking trip in Ten Thousand Islands in January.
I can't even tell if it's plant or animal or what. . .
This has been bugging me for a while, thought I'd try here.
For reference, according to my memory this object is about 8-10" long.
Any clues are appreciated! [more inside]

I've been trying in vain to ID this deep house track that features the following lyrics: "There ain't no pill that can fill this need" and "Somebody call the doctor" (there's more to it, but this is what I can remember). It was played at Panorama Bar, Berghain, by Kiki at around 11am or so last Sunday morning. [more inside]

I've maybe lost my passport, the last form of picture ID that I have. Will this greatly impede getting a new one? How long would this mess usually take to get sorted out? I'm in New York City. (more inside) [more inside]

In New York State, if you are walking down the street on a public sidewalk (not doing anything illegal) and if a police officer asks to see your ID, by law, do you have the right to not show them?

Identify the source of this story: A Jew living in Germany (or Eastern Europe) in the late 1930s sees that the situation is turning bad, and decides to flee the country. He tries to convince his parents to come with him, but they refuse to be uprooted. A few years later, in the new country, he receives a telegram from his father reading simply "You were right." He never sees his parents again. [more inside]

What is the song used in this YouTube video?
I know it's kind of a stretch, but I can't get it out of my head! Recommendations of similar music are good too.
