comment Changing the Half-Life of Radioactive Substances
Not appreciably so. Heating any matter to the point where it's constituent atoms were traveling at relativistic velocities due to thermal motion would cause the matter to explode or otherwise disassemble. You couldn't have a solid (or liquid or plasma) that was hot enough to make a difference and have it remain a coherent mass.

@user1247, All translatory motion has the same relativistic effect irrespective of whether it is caused by thermal energy or some other source of relative velocity.

comment Why doesn't my house get misty?
I don't have time to go into all of the details, I expect someone else will get to it later, but there certainly can be fog/clouds inside. An artist named Berndnaut Smilde has used this to great effect: booooooom.com/2012/06/09/…

comment Can you suggest me some good resource for learning Mathematica for physics?
Try sagemath, it's free and, in my opinion, superior.
