Can stage curtains of unknown origin be tested to get certification of fire code compliance?

Our school is being asked to remove the stage curtains to comply with fire codes, since we do not have documentation proving they are fire safe. Rather than buy new curtains (gulp), is there a way to send a piece of the fabric out for testing and to get back the necessary fire code certification? I'm in MA, if that matters. Thanks!

Eat or toss?

I baked a potato (skin rubbed with olive oil and kosher salt before cooking), and stupidly left it in a cold oven for a few days. Looks ok (kind of shriveled, but not bad). Is it safe to reheat and eat?

Peanut-allergy friendly travel options from Boston to Detroit?

I need to travel from Boston, MA to Detroit, MI to visit my family this Christmas break. I'm faced with three options - fly, bus, or drive. I have a severe peanut allergy, so I'm trying to choose the safest option for me (with a preference for shorter travel times). In particular, how safe might Greyhound bus and United Airlines be for the peanut-allergic? Fellow allergics, would wearing a surgical mask help? Personal stories welcome. [more inside]

It's not that I want to watch anything dirty...

How do I disable YouTube's safety mode? My spouse somehow enabled it last week and we've been gong crazy trying to get rid of it. I've tried Googling this, and done everything others have suggested (apparently this is a common problem) but nothing works. And yes, I've gone to the bottom of the screen and switched the safety mode to "off", but it goes right back on again. HELP! We have Google Chrome, if that matters.

How do I locate the apartment that is safest in a big earthquake?

Moving to the (north) Bay Area of California: How do I best ensure that I (and my assets) survive The Big One unharmed? Eg. What should I look for in an apartment (and why), in terms of geology, design, construction, location, building codes, corner-cutting, etc. to best handle a massive earthquake? Expert or engineer advice would be great. (I'm more interested in how to find an earthquake-proof building and area, than in how to earthquake-proof my stuff once it's inside a building.)

safety in mexico city

Travelers of Latin America! Help me understand the current general safety/travel risk in Mexico City relative to other places I know well (Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo Lima, and Tacna/Arica).
