waiting for avocados...

Ways to speed up the ripening of an avocado (as seen on the internet):

--wrap it in newspaper in the dark
--place it a paper bag in the dark
--put it in a bag with an apple or banana (because they emit ethylene gas)
--bury the avocado completely in a jar of flour for a day (this one sounds almost like alchemy)
--place a paper-bagged avocado in the oven with just the oven light on (this one borders on superstitious)
--microwave the avocado for 30-120 seconds) (this sounds like a very bad idea)

I'm surprised that several of the ways insist on darkness. Shouldn't sunlight be involved? Anyone know of any other methods?
