Septic System

My husband thinks that the occasional quarter inch of food in the disposal will destroy our septic system. I could appreciate his paranoia, if, perhaps, I were stuffing a ham down the drain or putting a pot of boiling oil. However, this evening, a small scrap of a sole fillet fell into the drain and you would have thought that I had boobytrapped the entire system. Is it possible to ruin one's septic system from the occasional food scrap (and, I mean "scrap", i.e., no more than a nub)?

House Broken Into - Looking for Advice on a Security System

Our house got broken into today. We're thinking the seemingly inevitable thoughts about getting a home security sytstem. So, a couple questions: 1. Are we just overreacting (aka, is getting a security system a bad idea). 2. For anyone who has an experience - any thoughts on which is best and what to avoid? The previous owners of our house had a system by Edison Security, so in particular any experience there would be helpful. I guess we're thinking, at this point, (maybe cooler heads will prevail in the morning) about an electronic style system with an alarm that is sent out if it is tripped. And maybe a dog? Thanks.

GPS Auto Purchasing Assistance

I would like to purchase a GPS receiver for my car. I primarily need it for work covering Chicago and suburbs. I would like one that can speak and talk me to my destination. There are just too many models to choose from! I do not want to purchase the cheapest model and regret the decision later. Neither do I need one to cover all of North America and Canada. I am just seeking a good reliable system that has a good reputation for always picking up the signal. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Upper limit of habitable worlds in one solar system?

After seeing the recent movie Serenity, and having my intelligence insulted by how poorly thought out the universe is (it's all supposed to be taking place in one solar system, with hundreds of habitable worlds), I was wondering what the theoretical upper limit of possible habitable worlds in a single solar system is. Assume the normal Earth-like worlds, and moons of Jovians. [Slightly More Inside] [more inside]

iPod speaker recommendations?

I want to buy some speakers for an Ipod. Altec Lansing and Bose have both made speaker sets that use the docking port, so that's kind of cool, but are the speakers worth it? The Bose ones in particular are $300, which seems really high. Anyone have any experience with these? Or is it just better to buy some regular powered speakers and plug them into the earphone jack?
