How do you lay tack strips on top of laminate flooring?

You don't, if you want your carpet to stay stretched and flat on your floor. You see, laminate flooring is not attached to your floor in any way. It floats. The boards are locked together, but if you pull up on the side of a board, it will detach itself easily. So if you attach tack strips to that laminate and then stretch a carpet over it, the tension of the carpet will very likely pull your laminate up at the edges. To do this the right way, you'll need to remove the laminate flooring (you'll find this VERY easy to do), install tack strips to the subflooring, install carpet pad, and then carpet. It'll stay like it's supposed to.

How do you get blue-tack marks off painted walls?

If you roll up a ball of blue tack and rub it against the blue tack on the wall it comes off easily. Or, if like me you don't have any fresh blue tack available, I used blue painters tape. I got as much off the wall as I could by hand, and then placed the blue painters tape over the spots and pressed it into the orange-peel texture as much as possible, then peeled off the tape with the remaining blue-tack stuck to the tape. Do this a couple of times over each spot until clean.
