You don’t have to climb a ladder to change your Nest smoke detector’s Wi-Fi anymore

  You don’t have to climb a ladder to change your Nest smoke detector’s Wi-Fi anymore It was a stupid amount of work to update your Wi-Fi password. I own a Nest Protect, and my unit was unable to connect to the internet for several months earlier this year after I changed my Wi-Fi network’s name. I don’t own a ladder so I couldn’t get back up to it, and even if I did own one, I wouldn’t want to go through the process of getting it properly installed on my ceiling again. It’s a hassle.After a few months, I finally just changed my Wi-Fi network back to its original name so that the Nest could connect again.

A Pittsburgh-area woman checking the engine of her car to make sure nothing was aflame after she smelled burning made an even more surprising discovery under the hood: almost 200 walnuts and a squirrel's nest.

Holly Persic called her husband, Chris Persic, on Monday as she was driving. She told him that she noticed a burning smell but wasn't sure what it was. Chris told her to pull over and pop the hood to make sure nothing was on fire before he hung up.

Minutes later, Persic sent him a text that showed the source of the problem, heaps of walnuts and twigs stashed away in the engine of her 2016 Kia Sorento.

Chris Persic made his way to the Northland Library, where Persic pulled over and began picking out as many walnuts as he could. It was pouring rain that day.

"It took about at least 45 minutes. There was a lot," Chris Persic said. "I was soaking wet … but I could see there was still a good amount of walnuts underneath the motor."

He and Persic then took the car to a nearby mechanic to remove the rest.

"They put it up on the lift and, I guess there's a protective plate underneath, so when they took that off all the walnuts fell out all over the place," he said.

The mechanics ended up dumping about half of a trashcan full of walnuts.
