Do you trust 3rd party smartphone batteries?

Do you trust third-party batteries for your cellphone? Specifically I'm thinking about picking up some spare batteries for the HTC Evo, but I've been a non-removable battery phone user for so long that I don't know if I really should stick to the manufacturer's branded batteries or can safely save some money and look elsewhere (like a Seidio, for example).

Condo insurance: smokers and employment

Roughly how much will it add to your yearly condo insurance premium if you disclose that you're a smoker? What would be the repercussions for not doing so? Likewise, what about the part of the form that asks if the apartment is "regularly unoccupied during the day or evening by all adult occupants in the household." Both of these were pre-filled with "no" answers, and I'm hesitant to bring it up with the insurance company until knowing a little more. I'm in Brooklyn, NY.

Help me find the name for my new favorite pants

What are these pants (on the girl) called, so that I can I find them/a pattern for them? From the Bollywood routine on So You Think You Can Dance last night. The slit and the billoweyness when she spins are the key aspects of why I love these.

Happy Slovaks! FIFA world cup filter

Happy Slovaks! FIFA World Cup Filter. At the end of the Slovakia vs Italy match today (June 24th), there was a lot of footage of the Very Happy Slovakian team bouncing up and down together on the field, in a circle, with their arms around each other. I'm looking for video footage of that (adorable) part of the beautiful game spectacle. My Google-fu has failed me. Can you help?

My ring tarnished, and now it's fading away (onto me)!

My wife gave me a ring 2-3 years ago (while we were still dating). It's made from a New York State quarter, and silver(?) plated. About 6 months ago it started to tarnish, and now the copper from the inside of the quarter has been revealed. It's beginning to turn my skin green! Can I just take this to any jewelry shop and they can fix it up? Can it simply be replated? [Alternate solution inside] [more inside]

Smoke a Gold Cig

Looking for the title of a foreign (Russian?) film, probably filmed mid-late 90s. What I remember of the plot: gold(?) smuggling operation, with the gold being smuggled in cigarette packs; I believe a factory or power plant was central to the plot somehow; the film was in black & white until about 2/3 through the movie, when in a crucial scene a gold cigarette was used to connect a circuit, flipping on the lights in the power plant and switching the film over to color. Help?

I can remember lying down in the back of station wagons and pickup trucks, but what did we do in the VW?

How did kids under 2 travel in cars before car seats were the norm, particularly on long trips? My mom recalls tots in the lap and something called a 'car bed' (got any pictures?). Would little ones get lap-belted in to prevent them from falling off the seat on corner-turns?

Can't Display Unicode #0CAO -- Part of Emoticon Meme and Thus *Everywhere* -- in Mac Firefox. Help?

I can't get Unicode character 0CAO -- which is a part of a popular emoticon-based meme -- to correctly display in Firefox, despite, as far as I can tell, having the necessary fonts installed on the system. A picture speaks a thousand words, so: These are my Firefox font settings. This is how this page looks in Firefox. This is how it looks in Safari. This page suggested I needed Arial Unicode MS (which appears to already be part of the Mac OS X operating system?). I also installed a Kannada font from here. No go. Any ideas? It's not so much that I really love the meme; moreso that I really detest seeing those Unicode boxes pop up everywhere on God's green Earth when the character fails to display in Firefox.
