Where/how can someone ride in a motorcycle sidecar?

My sister would like to ride in a motorcycle sidecar before her 30th birthday (this December). I would like to make this happen! We live in the "tri-state area" (i.e. whatever's in easy reach of NYC) but will also be traveling a lot over the summer and fall, so several states seem to be an option, even if the NYC-area is not, for some reason.

Cheaper to buy a local cellphone while travelling?

I'm travelling in the US (Los Angeles) from Canada. What are my phone options? i'm sick of paying my local company's roaming charges. Can I buy a phone in LA that'll have full data/text/voice options for a month? If so, what'll it cost me? Can I just buy a chip for my iPhone for that month with no contract? (And if so, what's the best way to unlock it). Also, is there a way to forward SMS/text messages sent to my Toronto number? [more inside]

There's a Mystery Afoot!

Can anyone identify these splats? My friend found them in her Ann Arbor MI (USA) townhouse after having been away last weekend. They were on windowsills as well as the bathroom floor. In addition, a few small items on top of a tall piece of furniture were knocked over. While she was gone, the interior motion-sensor of her alarm system went off twice, but the service tech found and replaced a bad wire, so this may or may not be related. We assume it's animal droppings of some sort, but have no idea beyond that. Can you help?

Legal experts of AskMe, I ask for your advice (which is not to be interpreted as legal advice)! Company X provided two online bonus offers.

Shipping clothes from Canada to USA: what does the Certificate of Disinfection entail, where do I get it?

I have 2 large boxes of used clothing/shoes to ship to the US soon, and the post office employee told me the volume of items would definitely not pass the border unless I have a Certificate of Disinfection. Unfortunately, this document seems non-existent. There is NO information in Google, answers are always something along the lines of, "Ship it in several smaller boxes!" or "Don't say it's clothing!" which are avoiding the point: I am trying to do this by the book (legally). Does anyone have experience with this particularly evasive document, or parameters that would let Customs determine the packages are okay? Or another way I could *legally* ship the clothing to the US? [more inside]

Small differences in the U.S.A (international people)

What are some small differences you've noticed about the US? Examples: My Japanese friend says that in Japan, large buildings have multiple public entrance/exits. My Dutch friend says that in the Netherlands, women shower in the gym showers. Specifically, I'm interested in things that could imply some theory (elaborate or not) of US culture, of some region of the US.
