comment Does the NEC allow electrical wiring to run next to a ventilation duct?
I wouldn't worry too much about that. Romex wire is rated for up to 90C, that's 194F. Forced-air heat typically tops out at about 80F. This kind of wire sees more heat in attic runs in the summer than running next to a heating duct. Now, running next to a radiator carrying steam, that might be cause for some concern.

comment Is there a easy way to procure muriatic acid to “faux antique” a mirror?
Since the answer's so old I won't edit, but as a post-script, most residential-grade pH-Minus products use an "acid salt" which forms a weak acid in water; examples include sodium bisulfate. Muriatic acid is used more often in commercial-size pools like community or school pools, where the staff don't have the time to mess with several pounds of powder. It's also used for concrete surface prep (it'll eat into the surface of existing concrete, so an additional "parge coat" of concrete or thinset for various flooring options adhere better.
