Ants and fruit flies piss me off, so do chemicals, how do I destroy them all?!
Ants...Keep the skin of cucumber near the source of the problem, eventually eliminating it. Source
Fruit Flies...Fill a mason jar (or similar size liquid storage such as clean soup can) half full of vinegar or whiskey. Put elastic wrap around the top and seal with rubber-band(s). Poke small holes through the top of elastic wrap. The scent will attract them, some will drown before getting a chance to suffocate from the scent. The survivors wont be eating your fruit, when they fly up towards the beautiful air they gonn' be bish slapped by some plastic wrap. If they make it past THAT...they will try to find the holes. They're going to try to escape if they're robo-fruitfly. Even then they wouldn't make it before suffocating, falling, and landing in liquid in which they drown in. >:D

Where's the Car Keys?
I don't know, when you find them do yourself a favor. First get nail polish. Then pick out a color to color code each. Answering the question "Found my keys, now which is the deadbolt?". Only coat the tops of the keys. Don't be stupid. Don't coat the part of the key that goes into the lock. Think about the outcome. 

How can I lose weight without eventually complaining, and quick too?
First, make a lifetime change to your diet. No "diet" to your diet. A person's diet is what one eats on an average basis. A "diet" is what one eats for a short period of time, changing the psychical outcome for a short period of time. Do make a life time change to your diet. Do not "diet". 
Second, find an exercise that you enjoy doing. There's a very very wide variety. Ballet, Football, Jump-roping/Double-dutch, Rugby,Volleyball, Disc Golf, Pilates, Jumping on the trampoline, Waxing cars, Rock climbing, Walking, Running, hula-hooping, Aerial Hoop/Lyra, Hiking, Archery, Skateboarding/Long Boarding, Surf-boarding, Swimming, Going to the Gym, Gymnastics, etc...
It's common-sense what's going to be considered enough calories burned &/or amount of time put in to be a physical "sport" (for lack of a better term). The point is, if you enjoy it enough you're going to do it enough. No forcing yourself, unless you're trying to progress. Like while doing gymnastics, or playing basketball for instance.
