Where can I get oats in bulk near the Boston area?

Where can I get oats in bulk near the Boston area? I'm looking to cut down my breakfast costs, so I want to buy something like this. I assume that I could get it even cheaper than Amazon if I got it from a local cooperative/farm/something in the Boston area. Is that true, and if it is, how do I go about locating such a place?

Overly complex question about overly complex federal hiring process

Federal job application filter. I see that the federal hiring process is going to be simplified by November, but I'm hoping to get a job before then! I'm new to this process, and I understand that federal job applications are different from others. I have a few specific questions about making sure I don't let anything essential slip between the cracks. [more inside]

I'm sorry, I can't understand you

You're at a loud party, or you have a bad phone connection, or the other person has a thick accent. Whatever the culprit is, you're having trouble understanding what the other person is saying. You've already asked them to repeat what they were saying, but still, no dice. How do you handle this politely and gracefully?

I need some ants to temporarily move out of their home.

I need to put a railroad tie post exactly where a red ant colony is. I don't mind that they are there, except that when I stand there, in seconds my shoes are covered with red ants, and a couple minutes, they'd be all over me and the bites hurt. I need them gone for a couple days. I don't want to use insecticide because I don't like such things in general and because it is very near an irrigation ditch. Ant suggestions?

Better the second time around?

Can you think of any re-makes that were superior to the original (or even just as good?) The originals of The Browning Version, The Winslow Boy, ...just as examples, were superior to their re-makes. The first Sabrina was wildly better than the later version. Any suggestions for films whose remakes are well worth watching--or actually better than the original?

A coutnerintuitive idea to plug the gusher

Please tell me why this idea about stopping the unstoppable gusher will not work: I remember vaguely learning of something called Venturi's law in science class - that if you restrict the flow of a fluid, the pressure goes up. Thus to lower the oil pressure enough to allow the mud to push it down, perhaps they should actually open it up rather than try to plug it. [more inside]

How do I shut down poor me?

Tips for not complaining about a relatively minor physical issue? I'm beginning to suffer from hereditary osteoarthritis. I stand up funny and people ask what's wrong. I have stiffness and pain and tend to complain. I've listened to family complain about it and found it tiresome. How do I shut up and not burden people with a thing they can't do anything about and can't relate to, and isn't ultimately, that horrible? In twenty years, should I live so long, I'll freely complain about my hip replacements, but until then? We all find our own ailments fascinating, but other people's, not so much. I've read related asks, but this is specifically about a physical/health issue.
