New problem:

PET HAIR SHEDDING

Lint roller you say? HA this crap floats in the air space. The minute you’re done you have hair on your clothes again.
Vacuum cleaner? Some hairs get stuck between other fabrics’ fibers. I have a hand vacuum with a little “rubber end that sort of moves the stuff around” and it’s still not perfect
Brushing gloves? Meh they still shed

Bonus: did I mention I shed hair too?
Is it static that causes the hair to stick? If so, would an anti static spray help I wonder?

I'm just being silly about me not being qualified (yet..?) to faithfully and profitably employ that much money, and if I ever do get to that level, I won't need a grant; people will be almost forcing me to take their money from them. :)
True that, I do hope you detected the glint of humor. I know your business doesn't need props. That's why it's fun to throw these ideas out.
But please help me with this mystery.
I read "Atlas Shrugged" probably twenty years after Ayn Rand was still walking the earth and collecting her social security and her Medicaid (oh yea she did).
I didn't see the movie, "Who is John Galt?" which was apparently really terrible.

To this day I don't know what the heck it means t0 say, "Who is John Galt?"

Much of the funding was intended to build rural transportation networks to get workers to their jobs until the public transporation system was in place. I started because I overheard a young guy say that he'd sold his guitar for $140 in order to pay for the gas to drive his car to work for two weeks. The grant helped kids get jobs and employers train and keep workers.
(Was that really a bad thing to do? Asking for a friend.)

Oh man, if only I knew what it means to know who John Galt is.

Empty a plastic TJ Maxx shopping bag of the needless items you bought yesterday.
With a damp face cloth, use a light rotating motion on fur. Brush trapped fur into the shopping bag. Lift up the animal's forelimbs with both hands and do "Woopa Gangman Style."
Use the same method to remove embedded hair from carpet.

OK this was fun, but now I need to go to Home Depot and look for a gadget which detects electrical current - a heat sensor? - in the walls. I replaced the emergency switch but nothing.
You guys have been so helpful. Many, many thanks.

Update: I followed someone's advice above and decided to evolve.
No more gadget-based Saturday home repairs for this JOHN GALT. :blush:

And that is a very bad answer too. Why doesn't someone just explain what it means to say, "Who is John Galt?"

Up here you really need to wear an Abe Lincoln beard and brimmed cap and a measuring tape outside your jeans or the Home Depot floor help is just ludicrous.
Everyone reading the book is nervous about spoilers. I've yet to say anything that actually means something or gives away any concrete details, but I've already gotten my hand slapped twice. I'm taking a vow of silence. :D

YOU'LL NEVER GET IT OUTTA ME COPPER! I'M NO SNITCH!

Estrogenics?
I didn't know the term.
Now for the really bad news my friend, He of the Mythical Name:
Artificial sweeteners also mimic estrogen, and as such are weight gaining drugs.

Want to undermine your weight loss regimen? Have a diet Pepsi. Results guaranteed.

OMG you're pondering anti-static spray for pet hair while someone here is trying to solve why the furnace won't switch on. I mean, orders of magnitude, anyone?
Then again this is a game, so. I guess I'll go buy six more oil-filled radiators and wait out the month for an electrician to fix the short in the walls. Good game.

New question:
I want to run six oil-filled radiators on solar power.

I didn't see the broken furnace deal-y.

It's not just a fuse or needing to replace the thermostat, right?

No, fuse is fine and thermostat also fine-o. Emergency switch and switch casing replaced by YT. I think I should just rebel against custom and put oil heaters with timers everywhere.

Omg why are we even still using saran-wrap in the first place. What does it have that can't be replaced by Tupperware or foil or something else plus so wasteful/not eco friendly. Foil also but at least foil doesn't totally crunch on you because of static.

I'd see if I can find a new material that can be reused, maybe? A material we use for other things but applied as Saran Wrap it works just as well?
Maybe lids made out of bamboo, reusable and washable. Bamboo is worth studying to my mind

i still have to try that, but it doesn’t solve the shedding cleaning issue though. But it might prevent me from attracting all the hair in the air into my clothes

We’re all reading Atlas Shrugged together and the “Who is John Galt” is from it
So am I ..........
That is why I don't understand at all why "Who is John Galt" is a saying, what does this reply mean?
Is it sarcasm? Cautionary? Self-righteous?
When you say "who is John Galt," are you implying that you have the sensibilities of John Galt and that the other person is wrong, or is the meaning the other way around.

Someone could explain the common reference meaning without revealing a spoiler.

Asking again...

From the contextual clues I took it as a cross between "Who gives a $hit" and "Why bother".

I start.

Problem: Only child. Miles away from mom. She can't do basic things on the computer like downloading her phone photos, because "OmG Idk HoW tO dO IT, i'M gOnNa BReAK soMetHiNG ". Walking her through it on a call is a torture and she prefers to wait one year or more until I visit for me to do it for her instead of learning (I've written the steps down and she still won't do it). She keeps running out of space and deleting things while she waits for me to visit.

I'm legit willing to pay $$ for someone to solve this nuisance for me.
well, i could be your mom ;)
I have an Iphone and a cloud. Every time I take a picture, the Iphone sends it to the cloud.
I could make an adjustment to delete it on the Iphone after uploading it.
and via cloud Ican get the pictures again.
Its nearly idiot ( me ;)) ) proof .
