How can I stop putting the carcass zone in Carcassonne?

I need help to stop finishing dead last in Carcassonne without resorting to cutthroat strategies that alienate people. I've researched strategy guides, but none that I've found is written in the "explain it like I'm five" style that I need. Please hope me learn how be competitive.

How do I set up a randomly reoccurring event in my calendar?

I would like to set up a randomly reoccurring weekly event in my calendar -- either Outlook or Google -- such that it repeats every work week (M-F) between the hours of 9-5, but randomly. In other words, I want it to be at 1 pm on Monday one week, then 10 am on Friday of the following week, etc. Is there a quick and easy way to do this or must I set up a reoccurring event and then go through each week moving the appointment to what feels like a random time?

Who won the Ultimate Noah's Ark challenge?

Where can I find information about the winner of and solution to Mike Wilk's Ultimate Noah's Ark contest? The contest ended in 1995, but there's surprisingly little info on the intrawebs.

Kirk's John Hancock

Star Trek TOS: what were those things the attractive ensigns would bring Captain Kirk to sign in some of the episodes? He never read them, he'd just sign them, smile at the eye candy, and go back to whatever he was doing. Was this just an excuse to get eye candy on the screen or is there a real world analogue?

voices of colors?

why do different races/ethnicities sometimes have different timbres to their voices?
