How can I repurpose a digital kitchen scale with broken LCD?

I have a digital kitchen scale on which the LCD has crapped out. By pressing on different parts of the ribbon cable connecting the LCD to the circuit board, I've determined that there are multiple shorts or shoddy connections on the cable. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to fix it, so I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas for ways I can repurpose it for a fun electronics project. I have some basic electronics knowledge and soldering experience.

Why aren't there more stainless steel toilets?

Is there a good reason that we use (in the U.S.) porcelain toilets almost exclusively instead of another material, particularly stainless steel? Stainless steel is lighter than porcelain, isn't it? So I would think it would be cheaper to ship and easier to clean, making it a no-brainer green solution.

How to get smooth hair

I have coarse shoulder length hair that I blow dry and use med heat of straight iron to smooth, but it especially gets frizzy in humid weather. I use a straight iron and hair products to smooth it. When I go to beauty shop the beautician uses a 400 degree straight iron that gets it super smooth and straight, however I don't want to damage my hair using high temp on it daily. I have used these products on my hair to try to achieve smoothness: John Frieda Luminouscolor Glaze Clear Shine, Matrix Sleek Look Blow Down Extreme Creme, Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum, Aveeno Nourish & Style Soft Hold Gel Creme. Would a pomade help achieve this? I really like Heidi Klum's current hair style, and my could look like it if I could get it as smooth as she gets hers

Practical transcription of Tamashek

I'm trying to write Tamashek, the language of the Tuareg, in latin characters. I have nearly all the literature on this -- the problem is, there are a variety of proposed systems, and all of them seem to be based on a largely impractical phonetic alphabet. Most of the proposed alphabets are around 36 to 50 letters, rendering it largely ineffective, especially when trying to teach writing to illiterate native speakers or second language learners.

How to get licensed as a Citizen Arborist

I recollect reading or hearing a story within the past year or so in which I learned that one can acquire a permit or license from the city (I think it was Philadelphia, my city, but it could have been another city) that allows one to perform the duties of what I would call a "citizen arborist", e.g., if a tree branch were to be busted by a passing vehicle, said citizen arborist would be empowered to perform proper pruning on the spot on said tree for the greater health and well-being of the tree and its neighborhood. I find this so appealing and want to see if I can get that license, but I'm not sure how to start?
