BUtton Button Who's Got The Button

Shibboleth-Filter: I saw a man on the NYC subway wearing a strange button. A green san-serif "L" on a white background with a big red "No" strike-through symbol. Googlefu is failing me. What was he for or against anyway?

Help choose which photo of Ayers Rock to print out as a present for my parents and my girlfriend's parents for Christmas.

Don't Wanna be an Idiot.

I have an interview at a "school of rock"-esque institution, which will require me to teach the song "American Idiot" by Green Day to a group of children. I have been playing guitar for years and years, and will be able to easily teach basslines. But drums is the problem. What's the best way to teach a drumline with no previous drum experience?

Need the part # for a 2009 Ford Focus Passenger-side Mirror

I'm trying to find part number(s) to repair a sideswiped passenger side mirror on a 2009 Ford Focus. Most of the mirror is intact, so I'd like to replace only the piece that clips the mirror into the holder cavity. If this isn't possible, I'll grudgingly pony up for the whole mirror assembly. Bonus question: is there a place to buy the part in Orlando, FL before Sunday? Thanks!

Don't need fancy 5.1 or anything. Recommendations? [more inside]

Who knows where to find bizarre headphones?

How should I react when people visually communicate disrespect for me?

I am looking for helpful strategies for dealing with disrespectful, nonverbal behaviors. I am talking about when people give someone behind you a look or when (teenagers especially) roll their eyes to a friend because they think you can't see them. Although these behaviors make me angry, if I think with my "wise mind" I know that I shouldn't humiliate them in return. I would like to come up with some graceful and dignified strategies that discourage these behaviors. When I ignore them, I leave the situation feeling that I have betrayed myself. [more inside]

Studies about marketing during a recession?

Tonight someone mentioned to me a study that boiled down to the idea that businesses that keep up with their marketing in a recession tend to bounce back better, or survive better. This makes sense to me, but he doesn't have a cite for study, and I'm curious. Does anyone have an idea of where this might have been, or any other study along those lines?
