comment How much clearance is required around a kitchen island?
Measure your door, Inside Frame to inside Frame.. that is the required minimum size for normal passage. So apply that around your island and you will be OK.. any thing less and it can become very uncomfortable. Especially for larger people.

comment Why aren't all houses equipped with fire sprinklers?
Too expensive- but at least you could save 50% on home insurance? especially if it calls the fire department auto. It law in offices because when there is panic loads of people can cause exits to block up- so there has to be some sort of safety system in the event of a fire. At home- a fire alarm is good enough because you know to grab your children and shift outside as a natural instinct.. but if you had a family of 30... its a mental then.

comment How do you remove paint from hair?
It a bit yucky but i would put paint thinners on a cloth and dab the a effected hair areas. Its smelly and wont disovle your hair.. but you would need to wash your hair with 2-3 times afterwards because thinners is very oily. Then use some conditioner. Please remember if you have dyed your hair this process is likely to remove your hair dye too!

comment My dryer heating element broke in two: Can I just wrap the ends together?
I dont like downvoting because you took some effort to provide an answer- but even in your experience you know this is a dangerous thing to do. Like replacing a fuse with a piece of wire or something.. Murphy is just waiting for this.. Please consider amending your answer

comment How do I put a fluorescent light on a motion sensor?
That seems like incorrect wiring! wiring ballast and flourecnt is a bit tricky. can you show a diagram of how it is all wired in- it sounds like you wired in a floating live- causing leakage into the bulb... dangerous.
