Got smoke?

How can I intentionally make charcoal smoke? I need to carry a smoking container for a costume. I ordered hookah coals to put in the container. They burn great, but have minimal smoke. I'd like it to smolder and smoke for as long as possible. Any suggestions?

Must-See Scenic Drives and Attractions Driving West from Cincinnati to Seattle

What are some must-see scenic drives and attractions to be found on a one-way roadtrip West from Cincinnati, OH to Seattle, WA. Mid-40s opposite-sex couple who love photography, don't like hiking very much but appreciate a good hot spring, and are what you would call "foodies". We're thinking about the Badlands and Black Hills, but what else? Also, what stretches of road can we avoid to stave off boredom, and where should we drive instead of them? We can go a bit out of our way, but would like to be back at our jobs within a week.

How to get hollywood in the backwoods?

I'm looking for a low cost timecode slate. Which is this But instead of costing $1200 or so and being a dedicated piece of equipment. Maybe something more like this. Though I don't have an iPhone so that program is out. Does anyone know of one that runs on Windows, like a tablet PC? or maybe one that was self built from a microcontroller (arduino, stamp, etc) SMPTE can be read by the Arduino so it might be possible. Thanks.

The realism of The Wire Season 2

I'm currently in the process of rewatching The Wire for the third time, and there is something that has been bugging me about season two for a long time (there are no real spoilers in this question, btw). The second season is thematically all about "the death of the American blue-collar worker", in this case the stevedores working at Baltimore harbor. But this doesn't ring true to me. I mean, yes, American industrial production is plummeting in favor of countries with cheaper labor (like China), but doesn't that mean that the US has to import more stuff? And clearly it is. And most of those imports comes in by boat. So why isn't the harbor be prospering? [more inside]
