|I watch too much TV...

The Question Club
but it doesn't turn me into an unthinking couch potato. In fact, most of the shows I watch, I use as a discussion topic later on, like CSI or Law & Order. Which leads me to my questions:|
1. On CSI, twice in the last week, the detectives have said "You've recently cut your [toe] nails. " And then go to the bathroom and look in the toilet. I usually clip mine in my bedroom or on the couch, and put the cut pieces into an ashtray or some other container, then throw them in the garbage. But the writers of CSI apparently think that nails are clipped in the loo. Am I weird? Where do you clip your toe & finger nails?
2. On the news, there was a story about the aftermath of a deadly crash, where 3 teens died last week in a residential neighborhood. The kids' friends made a memorial at the accident site, which is not irregular. Problem is, the crash site is on a woman's lawn, and she's bothered by the constant stream of crying, screaming, candle-lighting teenagers in her yard. She took all the flowers & momentos into her house, and contacted 1 girl's mom to pick it up. It would be hard enough having 3 kids die (and they were all ejected from the vehicle) on your front step, I can see why she would do this. but, on the other hand, I can see how the friends would need to have a place to grieve, and the crash site is usually the place its done, at least before a funeral and grave are created. Do you agree with the homeowner? What can be done to make everyone happy?
