Examples of memorable performances from American Idol, Shark Tank, etc.?

How to get an oxygen tank in the stroller.

Our baby is nearly coming home from the NICU, and the doctors have told us more than likely he will have to come home with an oxygen tank. We already bought a pram/stroller for him before we knew about this, now we aren't sure if we can fit the oxygen tank with the pram/stroller we have. I think its going to be a class D oxygen tank. Do we need a new pram or can we attach the tank somehow? [more inside]

O hai. I'm ur noobtank. I'm here to wipe your group.

I just started playing World of Warcraft again after two years. In short: I'm a total noob again and I'm starting to tank heroic dungeons and it is... messy. Noxxic seems pretty good for basic gear/stat information, and the in-game Dungeon Guides are nice, but they're really terrible for reading on the fly and don't actually include popular strategies. Is there a good place where I can learn how to tank Cataclysm Heroics or am I fated to drag poor strangers along on my very painful learning curve? I don't love sifting through dozens of YouTube videos, but videos would be helpful.

Home AC - Is my condensate pump broken?

So yesterday I heard this noise coming from the basement all day. It turns out the condensate pump on my AC (water goes from AC to some tank in the floor and the pump pumps it outside AFAIK) was continually running all day. I unplugged it and plugged it back in, and it hasn't run since. How can I tell if the pump is working properly or not? [more inside]

My car says it has gas but I don't think it does. It won't let me put more in. What to do?

I have no recollection of filling it with gas, though I do recall that the last time I drove it, it was hope-i-make-it-home almost empty. Am I just super forgetful? Or is there another explanation?

Pressurized Air tank - bag

I want to put tennis balls in a tank/bag that I can pressurize to about ~20-30 psi (perhaps more). Do you know where I can find such a tank(or what it would be called) for a reasonable price (less than $50) ? It should be able to hold at least 30 balls. Used would be fine.

Gas caps on cars - which side?

Sitting in a car today as my friend was filling her tank, and my colleagues and I wondered aloud why there doesn't seem to be a standard for which side of the car has the gas cap on it. The car we were in had it on the right, as do both my cars, but the others in the car had cars with the caps on the left. What logic do car manufacturers use to determine from which side fuel is delivered? Some vehicles have the delivery point at the rear, and I believe I once saw a car with the gas cap near the front somewhere. Anyone know a rough ratio of left / right on North American cars? If there is a majority, is it an ergonomics thing? Just curious.

Why do gas pumps shut off mid-fill?

When I gas up my car, I don't squeeze the lever on the pump handle, but, instead, I slide the lever into the little notch so that my tank will fill itself up while I squeegee the windows. When the tank is full, the pump shudders, the lever dislodges itself, and the filling ceases. However, probably half of the time, the filling ceases much, much too early. The result is that I can't tell when my tank is full, nor can I squeegee while my car fuels itself. What gives? [more inside]
