    Looking for information out there, from someone who has had experience making shrunken heads out of peeled and carved apples, for Halloween. Most of the websites and pages I have read up on, suggest that the proper way to preserve the apples faces, before the prescribed two-week drying, dehydrating and shriveling, is to give the apples a bath in lemon juice and salt. Would it be more prudent to outright soak the apples for a period of time, in said solution?? My experiments in doing a few of these so far, have had mixed results, as some of the apples seem to maintaining quite well, without rotting or molding...and others seem to be molding and rotting right away. Also, some of the websites have suggested that for quicker results, a slow baking of the apples, in a low-heat oven also works; has anyone out there attempted this, and what were the results?? Finally, for added preservation, once the apple has shriveled to the satisfactory point, would a thin coating of polyurethane help, and would it affect the apple, in any way?? I welcome any and all information, from anyone who has attempted this cool Halloween decoration idea.

    A girlfriend of mine is considering an expensive medical treatment, in order to swell or plump her lips; to be quite honest, I am quite adverse to such invasive medical treatments, and I think that she looks quite beautiful, the way that she is...often telling her so. However, despite my repeated attempts to convince her otherwise, she seems dead determined to do this...though no concrete plan have been laid down...at least, as far as I know. I have been doing some research on this, including alternate...and not so invasive...methods, in doing what she wants to do. In my research, I have come across numerous topical methods...including something called 'lip plumpers'...which, according to the varied claims, are effective and non-permenant. From site to site, I read the same: "I'm the best"..."No, I'm the best"..."No, I'm the best"...and on, and on and on. Clearly, most of these websites are trying to sell a product, rather than exhuing what is really the best, so I thought that I'd put it out there, amongst my fellow Yahoo Answerers. Has anyone out there, had any experience with these lip plumper products...some privy information, which I might pass onto my girlfriend?? Any information would be greatly appreciated...Thanks in Advance....

This year, I am attempting to do my pumpkin rendition of 'Audrey II', from the musical movie version of "Little Shop of Horrors". I have pretty much all the details and materials covered...except for one thing, that's gettin' my head a-scratchin. How the heck do I construct those huge lips on the plant?? If you recall, those lips just stuck out there, as the plant was talking and singing, so carving them out of the pumpkin flesh might not be possible. Anyone have any suggestions??? Ideas most appreciated......

    ,,,in the recent 're-imagining' of the original "Friday the 13th", there was a scene at the beginning, where the first couple of kids were wandering into Camp Crystal Lake. They passed through a vine-thicketed threshold, with 'Camp Crystal Lake' overhead; as they were seen moving further past the threshold, and further into the camp, there was a quick flash of an old yellow sign...very familiar looking...and obscured by the vinery. Now, I probably won't be able to confirm it, until the DVD comes out, and I can freeze frame the shot, but that sign looks exactly like the yellow-painted 'Camp Crystal Lake' sign, from the original film (...remember the camp counselor supervisor, in the yellow slicker, walking up to the sign, and was blinded by a flashlight beam...right before getting killed....saying to the unseen attacker, before getting dispatched, "...oh, hi...what are you doing out here in this mess?")... ...a souvenir trinket, carried over from film to film, perhaps???

It's just not that easy to shock movie audiences in this manner, anymore, and the producers of "Chaos" appeared to have had the courage and the unflinching nerve to actually do that very thing.... ....I am curious as to what you fine folk out there, have to think about, in this regards....
