Way Back Machine to Early 90's Techno Songs - Skinny Bumblebee

Desperately trying to find a techno / EDM song from the early 90's - all I can remember is a lyric that sounds something like: "skinny bumblebee", but kind of drawn out, like "ski-i-i-innnny bumblebee". High BPM dance song. Had it on a mix tape which is now lost to the sands of time.

Aftermarket HID or LED headlights on new cars?

I'm looking at a new car purchase and have noticed that the "better" headlights (HID or LED) are typically only available on the highest trim level or with an options package that includes a bunch of other features that I'm a lot less interested in. What should I know about doing an aftermarket install of HID or LED headlights on a new car purchase in the US? [more inside]

Is getting work done on a house always an challenging experience?

Can you share any best practices for working with vendors? We bought a older house that needed some work about five months ago and it's been a frustrating process.

Is My Computer Infected?

Today, I was on my Windows laptop and a command prompt window opened, which changed from red text to green text really quickly, almost too quickly to catch. I wiped and re-installed Windows, and now, the same command prompt popped up again! Screenshot: here. Is my computer infected? How can this be with a full wipe and re-install?

Holocaust museum and water bottles

I'm visiting DC, and visited the Holocaust Museum today. I had an unsealed bottle of water, which I was allowed to bring in. However, the security officer asked me to take a sip of it first. Why is that? A Google search wasn't very insightful. Thanks!

Staying in Lahaina in June - what are your recommendations?

We'll be there in early June, with access to a car, for about a week. Accommodations are sorted, but we'll be free for most of the days. This thread had lots of great recommendations, but I don't want to miss anything. Two adults in average shape, neither of us are SCUBA certified, but we might like snorkeling. Looking online has my head spinning.

How to age and not become mentally/socially rigid and cranky?

My husband points out that as people age (40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond), they become cranky and rigid, and previously benign idiosyncrasies become more pronounced. Everyone in my family has died young, so I have little experience with this. What's the science behind this, and how can we avoid this happening?

need shoe recommendation for greenhouse/horticulturist

Mr. BellaStella works in a greenhouse. He stands in water a good portion of the day. For years he's been getting cheap Walmart shoes, which last about a month, if he's lucky. About once a year, he'll get an incredibly inflamed big toe, sometimes necessitating a trip to urgent care. He wears cotton crew socks with his shoes, so his poor feet are just fermenting all day.

What is like MetaFilter, but not brutally depressing?

MetaFilter is one of my main inputs. I get a lot of news and thinking about the world here. The problem is that it can make me feel terrible about everything, which is already kind of my baseline. Friends and family often express concern when I have been reading MeFi a lot. I am curious what sites you read that have similar properties, but are not as heavy and challenging, so that I can balance my consumption of MetaFilter and MetaFilter-like things. [more inside]

Transport options in LA without a car--cabs, Uber or what?

Later this year my daughter (by then 18 yo) and I will be visiting Los Angeles, probably staying somewhere round Santa Monica. We want to do some of the touristy things and will be going on at least the tour to the Hollywood sign. However, hiring a car is not an option. I gather the public transport options aren't great either. That leaves cabs, Uber and Lyft. Given my constraints (see below), convince me which I should use. [more inside]
