what's the gray residue in my water

What's the gray residue in my water? We moved into this home (built circa 1985) 2 years ago. After bathwater has drained, you find a silty residue left in the tub. You can't see it in the water itself. Residue looks a bit like the calcium deposits one might find normally, but ranges from gray to sometimes sandy brown. Lately there is also some substance much like this clinging to dishes after the dishwasher runs too. [more inside]

Offsetting sea level rise: An engineering idea of Biblical proportions

The seas are rising. Climate change has made it inevitable. I have a strange question...

What is that strange acrid smell whle showering

My shower (an in-stall water heater) sometimes smells like something rubber is burning. It's a strong acrid smell that I only notice while in the shower and usually only after a sweaty workout. There is no sign of smoke like you would expect with burning rubber. Is this just some sort of weird sweat and treated water chemical reaction? Anybody heard of something like this?

Water Aerobics Instructional Videos?

I recently moved to Phoenix and am lucky enough to have a swimming pool in my backyard. It's perfect for water aerobics but not so much for swimming, as one end of the pool is much shallower than the other. I'm looking for good instructional water aerobics videos. Any suggestions? I haven't found much on the web so I'm ok with buying something if it's highly recommended.

Tips and Hints for the Occasionally Klutzy Erstwhile Photographer

A few days ago, I unknowingly spilled water on a pile of old photo prints that I am planning on scanning. They dried, and now, as a result, the bottom twenty are stuck together. How can I separate the prints without tearing or otherwise ruining them? If that is impossible, I still have the negatives somewhere; how can I best scan negatives into a regular flatbed scanner?
