Looking for a keep-feet-warm in bed device (to keep on the bed, not just socks)

I want something to put at the foot of my bed to keep feet warm - a throw would work, but something more designed for the purpose perhaps- like a giant "sock" that slips over the end of the comforter that you slip your feet into or something like that. down or equivalent preferable, but post whatever you have!

What are some great winter movies?

With winter starting to appear on the not-so-distant horizon, I got to wondering what are some truly great winter movies? I'm not thinking of films that merely take place during the winter, but ones where the season itself becomes almost a character in the movie; where you can almost feel the cold wind blowing and the snow falling while you watch them.

Why did my car window explode?

This evening, I got home from work and came inside. About twenty minutes later, my daughter came in from playing in the backyard, crying, and told me that my car window had broken. When I went out, it became clear that the window had burst from the inside--the bits of glass still attached were bowed outward, and 80% of the fallen glass was in the driveway. What on earth happened? [more inside]

Help me oil my hair without... oiling my hair.

I have very short, straight hair (pixie cut) and I find it easiest to style the day after the day I shower. I think something about the extra oil gives it more body. When I shampoo and condition, it's very soft and clean (good) but lies flat and has no shape (bad). How to address this? [more inside]

Yellow snow etiquette?

Yellow snow etiquette? It's my dog's first winter in a snowy clime. I always scoop poop, of course, but what is the etiquette for cleaning up the yellow snow? I usually try to cover it up with a little fresh snow, but it still seems gross to me.

Ice falling from buildings?

Ice falling from tall buildings filter. Help me lay to rest a question that has plagued my wife. We live in Chicago, with lots of tall buildings. Ice falls off of the buildings from time to time and about once a year, some poor bastard gets mushed. Where in terms of physics and I suppose statistics would be the safest place to walk down the sidewalk: as close to the building as possible? The middle of the sidewalk? The far edge? Does it depend on building height?

Smells like team spirit -- or worse!

I live in a place that is rainy or snowy half the year, and during that half it is impossible to keep the floor of my car dry. It has begun to smell pretty bad. I recently had the interior detailed, which included washing the floor mats, and it smelt fine until the floor got wet again, which was almost immediately. Does anyone have a good technique for keeping wet carpet from smelling bad? Drying it is not an option. For bonus points, exactly what is it that causes the smell?

Snowshoeing, skating, or skiing for n00bs

How can two oldsters, two college students, and a 15-year-old boy have fun in the snow or on the ice? My 21-year-old nephew and his girlfriend are coming to stay with me, my wife, and son in the Denver area right after New Year's. We'd like to take them to the mountains for a day trip or possibly overnight, but we're totally lame and don't know how to ski or skate. They probably know how to skate, but I don't think they ski. What would be fun and easy to learn? [more inside]
