Shooting eyeball closeups isn't cutting it anymore

I've been tasked at school to photograph a negative emotion. I had a plan in place which broke to bits when I forgot my camera at school over the weekend. I need to shoot something tomorrow, but I'm having trouble being more creative than some crude and banal ideas for photographs of fear. I can't find inspiration online - all I come up with is crappy stock photography. Can you please point out for me good online and free resources on scene staging in films, resources on photographing emotions or good examples of emotional photos?

How to password protect a linked file?

I need to send an MP3 music file to a number of email addresses. I want to do this by directing people to a download on a web link, rather than emailing the (large) file direct. I also want to be able to password-protect the file in that link (either the file or the link), so the music doesn't get passed around beyond the list of recipients. Does anyone know of any good resources for this? Thanks, oh wise ones.

Figuring out logistics of camping & hiking in Alaska

Camping in Alaska: I'm looking to camp at the Eklutna Lake campgrounds 3 weeks from now on way to a 4 day sojourn into Denali State Park. However, I can't reserve a spot in advance. How likely is it that there will be no free campgrounds available, being slightly after the end of the summer season? What are some similar quality campgrounds in the "between Anchorage & Denali" zone if Eklutna is fully booked? [more inside]

Is my homemade 'kraut supposed to smell/taste like this?

I made homemade garlic beet sauerkraut (using green cabbage) and it smells a bit old gym sock (but does not taste like it). Is this how sauerkraut is supposed to smell? It also tastes mostly salty and not very sour even though I let it ferment for well over a month. Is homemade 'kraut just milder than store bought?

Buying my first stock in a company. What should I know?

I am about to buy 2-4 shares in a company that I would like to support. This company may not last this long, but they plan to pay dividends in two years. What do I need to know, having never invested before? Are there any good tutorials on what I can expect from my stock? What about paying taxes/getting deductions if I lose money? Basically, I would be happy breaking even, but am not sure that will happen. However, I strongly support the company and wish to see it succeed. How can I minimize the losses I might face if the company goes belly up?

Am I ruining my drip machine?

I make my morning coffee in a French press, but then I keep it hot by pouring it into the carafe of my drip machine while it's switched on. Is this somehow going to damage my coffee maker if I don't have any water in the reservoir? I just want the hot plate to keep it warm. Relevant info: I have the Michael Graves coffee maker from Target.

Please recommend a reliable midsize motorcycle.

Will some of Ask's motorcycle gang please being me up to speed on the availability of a particular kind of bike? I'm looking for an around-town middleweight like the Triumph 650 I rode in college but I'm looking first of all for capital-R Reliability. I do want adequate performance, for situations like matching the speed of oncoming traffic in a short merging lane, but I'm not looking for performance of the wheelie pulling, eyeball flattening kind. What I don't want is any more experience sitting in an ever-spreading Triumph/BSA/Norton pool of oil setting valve train tolerances, after having just set them two days ago. Had enough of that to last a lifetime, thanks. [more inside]
