Congratulations on your hubnugget nomination. I've done most of these things at some point. However, I'm not the kind of person to TP a house.

If they had a "wow" feedback button I would click that one. Great list, I really needed this about 4 hours earlier today. Just so you know if I wasn't in the running, I'd vote for this hub for the hubnugget thing!
