There are red reflectors stuck to the windows of the office building where I work. They're like the kind on the back of bicycles, but affixed to the inside of the windows, facing in, and are distributed so that there's only one or two per room.
We're on the 26th floor, so I thought maybe they were somehow to ward off birds... but there's no reflective surface viewable from the outside. Their placement is haphazard enough that it's difficult to imagine them being used for any kind of surveying work.
No one at the office seems to know why these reflectors exist. Any ideas?

Please, please help. For the past two years my father has been suffering from these weird red ear episodes, which no one can seem to explain.

I have an awesome polo shirt with a white collar that got accidentally tossed in with a red shirt that bled all over everything in the load. Most of the other stuff was either jeans or house tees, but is there any way to salvage this collar without ruining the rest of the shirt?

Are there any matching-gift channels to make a Red Cross donation for persons who do not have employer-match? This is obviously a propos to Katrina, but I am also interested to learn if there may be permanent programs of this sort.

Being a city person, I am curious about why so many barns on the farms I see when driving around the country are painted red. Why is the color red seem to be the most common barn color? Or, is it just the farm neighborhoods I have been through?

I am trying to break into the Linux Server Administration field so I have been doing quite a bit of studying lately. I figured while I am studying the subject I might as well work towards a related certification. I am leaning towards
the Linux Professional Institute Certification
. Other certifications I am considering are CompTIA’s Linux+
and Red Hat’s RHCE
. So which Linux certification is the best? I would say Red Hat is the most reputable of these three but I am concerned that their certification might be too Red-Hat-centric, and I don't want to be locked into one distro. Which one is the easiest
/cheapest to obtain? Which is the mostly highly regarded
in the industry? Are there others that I missed?

Paging all color blind users! I'm curious about the fact that some dichromats and anomolous trichromats can live through a large portion of their adult lives without realizing that they're color blind. When did you first recognize that you were color blind? Does the world look different to you now than it did then? Before you were diagnosed, did you use different words ('red' and 'green') to refer to perceptually similar colors? In general, I'm hoping to get the lowdown on the subjective experience of being color blind.

I was looking at a spoof map showing the 'United States of Canada' and 'Jesusland'. In it, the 'blue' states were now part of Canada, and the 'red' states were what's left of the US. With the increasing divide between the two sides, what would happen if those 'blue' states seceded somehow. Don't they represent most of the economic prosperity in this country? And what does that fact say about the this country?
(I know this is not possible, but it is interesting to look at the relationship between economics and political leaning.)
