Help me paper a wall with Bazooka Joe comics.

I got it into my head that it would be fun to cover the wall next to the downstairs toilet with this stash of Bazooka Joe comics I recently found, but I'm not sure the best way to go about it. What kind of adhesive should I use? Will the wax paper deter adhesion? The wall is currently painted with a blue flat latex. What should I prime the surface with? I'm figuring I'd apply them one at a time, but is there a more efficient way to do it? [more inside]

hair products filter! Help me find cheaper alternatives!

I've been using aveda's flaxseed control paste for the last couple of years and really love this product. It's however, just a little bit expensive, especially when I get the same amount of product for 1/3 of the price at the drugstore. What are some other similar products out there that are cheaper that I should try? [more inside]

Installing a heatsink the right way

I'm installing a new CPU and motherboard into my friend's case. If I were installing it for myself, I'd slap the thing together and see if it worked but since the computer does not belong to me I'm going to try to be more careful. The CPU is a boxed Intel E5200 and the motherboard is a cheap ASUS. As I understand it the E5200 is going to have pre-applied thermal interface material, a.k.a. thermal grease, on it and all I'll have to do is pull the tape off and put the heat sink on. Right? Also, if anyone has any tricks to gracefully seating the heat sink I'd love to hear them.

Why is Microsoft Word pasting a thousand pages of copied text?

I'm asking on behalf of a fellow law student who is having a big, fat laptop problem as we fast approach the zero our for our finals. She copies some lines of text in Microsoft Word. When she pastes them, Word pastes literally a thousand pages of the same lines of text into the document. This isn't happening in any other programs, but her computer does seem to be running pretty hot for no reason that we can discern. What the hell is going on? [more inside]

Why does pasting excel charts into word cause the word file to become gigantic?

Is there a way to cut'n'paste charts from Excel into Word, without generating huge Word files? I've tried varieties of paste, 'paste special,' and so on, and I can't figure out why an Excel file of charts that's several hundred KB, always turns into a Word file that's at least several MB. I guess I'm missing something obvious, but have no idea what it is.
