I am submitting an application for a graphic design position and they are asking for design portfolios and two pieces of writing. I have no writing to give them. What the hell do I write about? I don't want to put a ton of time into researching topics so I can write about them but, seriously, I got nothing. I am a good writer with no outlet. Help!

We just bought a Canon iPF8400 printer at work. Yay! We support student services and bought it for student organizations/groups/projects that need poster printing. However, now that we have it, we realize that none of our fellow IT folks have test/sample jobs to send to it. Help me find something to print... [more inside]
I'm looking for songs that mix 80s and/or 90s pop with other genres. My favorite example of this is Orbital's Halcyon - And On And On Live that samples Bon Jovi's You Give Love A Bad Name and Belinda Carlisle's Heaven Is A Place On Earth. Any other genre is fine but electronic genres are preferred. Thanks!
I'm listening to NPR's streaming "First Listen" of Cibo Matto's "Emerald Tuesday," off the forthcoming Hotel Valentine, and I know this song it's sampling from the first note. (And I think that's the point of the lyrics, that the ghost in the song listened/listens to the sampled song all the time.) I feel like it's also something my husband listens to all the time, or that was in a movie I just saw, but I can't pin it down. My first thought was Curtis Mayfield, but I'm not finding it. I know it's going to seem obvious to me once you tell me, but nonetheless—help! What is that song?
I'm trying to rebuild a mix tape made for me by a London friend around 1989-1990. One track I'm having trouble finding started out with "Are you sitting comfortably? [Good.] Then I'll begin," which is a sample from the BBC's "Listen with Mother" radio series (click on the second old time radio for a clip, starts at the :16sec mark). After that it had a very deep man's voice saying "Welcome," over and over again while the music ramped up behind it. I always thought the man sounded like Worf, from ST: TNG. Any leads?
Contact by Daft Punk supposedly "contains audio from the Apollo 17 mission used by courtesy of NASA and Capt. Eugene Cernan". The sample says: "Hey Bob, I'm looking at what Jack was talking about and it's definitely not a particle that's nearby. It is a bright object and it's obviously rotating because it's flashing, it's way out in the distance, certainly rotating in a very rhythmic fashion because the flashes come around almost on time. As we look back at the Earth it's up at about 11 o'clock, about maybe ten or twelve diame...Earth diameters. I don't know whether that does you any good, but there's something out there." When I Google this I find only Daft Punk references. Is it a genuine soundbite from the Apollo 17 mission or did those wacky French robots make it up?
What is the sample used in the original "99 Problems" by Ice T? I always thought it was great because I could swear it was the sound of an alien being killed in "Aliens". My friend who just listened to it, however, says "duh, it's a seagull." Anyone? Thanks mefiters! : )

I work in an analytical lab. We work with a lot of sample cylinders that have valves that we open and close. The valve knobs are round textured metal disc, kinda like a really thick quarter (maybe little larger). I am looking for an power tool that would allow me to open and close these valves. Here is a link of how the cylinder and valve looks like Thanks Noodles

Does such a device exist?

Where's this sound clip Scarface used originally from? - 'I got my double-barreled shotgun, the one I call Molly, and I crawled out of the house army style with the rifle cradled in both arms. "Alright", I said, "Just hold it right there - don't move." And I walked up on him with the shotgun. And I cocked both barrels of the shotgun on him, because I had double aughts in it.' [more inside]
Okay, just spent a week in Avignon, and now either my memory sucks or my Googling does. Or both. Anyway, twice late at night on one of the local French TV stations (no satellite cable, so not MTV) I saw a wonderfully ridiculous music video. Now I can't find it anywhere. [more inside]
