Instructables

Head to Head Contest: You Choose.

I've decided to test an idea for some friendly competition. The rules are simple: two volunteer members will be given a week to create an Instructable based on a common subject. Whoever creates the better Instructable (higher quality, cooler, featured, most voted for, etc) will win a patch similar to the images below. Because this is the first run, and I can't think of a subject, the competing members will have to agree on a subject of their choosing. If there is a flood of volunteers, the community will vote on who they want to see face off. In this trial, I will allow up to four separate pairs to compete. If this doesn't make any sense, well, I just woke up! :P

The stats are as follows:

Lithium Rain VS. gmjhowe: Card, any kind of card, and it has to plug into a computer. Deadline: to be determined.

Matt1497 VS. watermelonhead : Duct tape hoodie. Deadline: 10th of August.

Does watermelonhead need more time?
watermelonhead has to forfeit as shown in the comment below.
Spl1nt3rC3ll (author)  Matt214974 years ago

I volunteer to be in a contest, as long as it's something I can make. No k'nex :P
Sunbanks PKM5 years ago
I want to go against you! :D
You two would make for an epic battle!
PKM gmjhowe5 years ago
Indeed.. I'd probably have to put my crafty hat on though.
Sunbanks PKM4 years ago
Do you have a cat?
Spl1nt3rC3ll (author)  PKM5 years ago
Hey, I have an idea. It's 130 degrees out cool me down!

Ok, it's really 103, but the thermometer that's been sitting in the sun all day says 130! It's never been this hot. Ever!
Here, stand under the shute (starts snow making machine)

Spl1nt3rC3ll (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
Want. Now.
It's cloudy and like 75 here -_- I was watching the news yesterday and nearly EVERYTHING was about how hot it was outside.
PKM Sunbanks5 years ago
75? It's about 18 here! Oh, wait, metric.... (converts) man, I'd kill for 75 degree heat. It's more like 65 here- it's the end of July and I went to the shops at lunchtime wearing three layers >_<
Sunbanks PKM5 years ago
:( I hate having to layer clothes in summer to stay warm.

I volunteer the following!

  • Kiteman vs. gmjhowe
  • Kiteman vs. Fungus Amungus
  • A Fungus Amungus vs. gmjhowe rematch
  • Weissesteinburg vs. CameronSS
  • Goodhart vs. Skunkbait
  • And last but not least, Kiteman vs. Skunkbait.
Let's commence preparations for rumbling!!
< sad that you didn't volunteer me for anything. What did I ever do to you, wait a minute, scratch that... >
Its just that your style is a tad TOO unique. Really, I can't think of anyone whod wanna go against you! Or maybe I just didn't want to.....who knows?
Awwww, come on, you want to go mano-a-mano or monter-a-mano? Do ya, it may be your lucky day... Umm, okay. So the lesson here is not to be too different that you become unique even though you should be different to stand out from the crowd.
Maybe mayo-a-mayo....
Are you trying to make a yolk out of this? No telling how it will turn out unless you mix it up.
I say, it will be over-easy to continue.
O me, let this be something that you don't want to stir up. You might be toast.
Aha, you say witty banter with you is a half-baked idea, but I disagree. The thought of pursuit of this tough cookie makes me wanna go whole hog.
Goodhart Bigev5 years ago
even the tough cookies find that, in the end, that is just how the cookie crumbles.
But we're not going to cry over spilled milk. You can mullet over if you want to get into a tangle and twist this into something big.
But you know I knead some whey to express these terrible food buns.
You seem to have gourmet your match. There's not too many who can stomach this in the long run.
But I have an Iron gut, and a taste for the mettle of wit.
Well, curdle it some more and hope that things do not turn sour.
You know, that sorta cheeses me off. You muenster!
Your ad hominem may or may not be full of holes but is still ripe for the picking...any way you cut it.
Hey, that's my line! :D
Your Latin may be buttery smooth, But I'm still on a roll!
You do know which side your bread is buttered on. It's not like there is a lot of dough involved here.
Frankly, it doesn't matter on which side the butter resides, because it always lands buttered side down. So make a butter sandwich and confuse convention.
Bigev Bigev5 years ago
(Now you see the inherent compression in the system. Help, help! I'm being compressed!)
I see your stock is being reduced. Lettuce see if you can spin this something more than cold hard cabbage.
You call me right, I'm starting to wilt. I'm afraid i can't save my bacon. The goose is cooked and I'm generally toast. I concede! (But wasn't it fun though?)
wait a minute, you couldn't stand the heat so you decided to get out of the kitchen? Pressure in the cooker got too much, maybe you're Kentucky Fried Chicken...get back in there!
Okay, but I think my thyme may be running low. But I'll try and a salt all the puns out there. Remember, the giblets always make the best gravy
Just pepper your comments with a few puns to make things spicy.
Too much, and you have yourself a three-alarm mental conversation
You won't curry an flavors by doing that to your taste buds. These comments are getting thin like a snail on a razor's edge which might mean an apocalypse now.
Escargot is like rotgut.

Alright, I withdraw and leave it the the masters...
Don't just slither away just like that. Eel be better if you have something shocking to say.
just don't spam us with your Showerphones
There's no egg-scuse for such a pithy comment. But Omgonnalett it slide.
You think you are slick like greased lightning? No need to butter me up. You batter come up with something good.
I don't want to be shellfish, but the tuna or three ways this could go all seem crabby.
Seems these comments are good to the last drop. You could percolate one or two more before it gets too fine and just runs into the grounds.
Ra-man, I missed a couple of Hagen Days. I think i'll just start hitting muttons and hope we can reheat the leftovers.
If you sift through all of this, you may find some parts are fine and the rest are just fun nuggets that are glutton for punishment.
Even the dregs are a great stock for some users. Those of fine palette can fluidly read the true recipe.
Even stone soup will satisfy those hungry for more or else it would be baseless.
Too may cooks ruin the soup! But four and twenty blackbirds beg to differ.
I've got two words for ya that are crisp and thin like this comment, Potato chip, wait, four words, Melba Toast.
I'll tell ya what, there's nothing chili about these comments. They're all Habanero hot, but you're still Klondike cool.
I think this cup runneth over, but there is so much more like the seeds of a fine punegranate fruit. May you drink from the fountain of youth.
Aye.
Aye yam what I yam. You are what you eat.
ummmm, sour cream LOL
but why skunkbait and I? I am mostly an electronics geek (you know, transistors, flip-flops, comparators, gates, decade counters, timers, etc.
I dunno. Youre both old, (in a good way!) and filled with wisdom.
Hmmmm, for the compliment, thank you :-)
Yoda.jpg
I say caitlinsdad VS scoochmaroo!
Kiteman VS GoodHart
Nonsense! Do you want the site to explode from epic overload?
*chuckle* yeah, I'll pick a radio tube out of my collection and we must then build a project around that tube LOL
arylic Goodhart4 years ago
I challenge you sir for a head to head match.
Goodhart arylic4 years ago
I haven't many tube left here sadly....I was mainly joking though I may have a 6AU4 or similar tube floating about somewhere. :-)
arylic Goodhart4 years ago
No not on tubes. Something else. How about we make a castle ? a cardboard castle and at the same time we could submit to the contest ? or do you have something else in mind ?
Goodhart arylic4 years ago
Well, I am kind of pressed for time......I am much better with electronics then I am with other materials (although I do like pyrography). I am currently preparing for a trip to NYC, so much of my time and concentration has been in that upcoming event. Let me think about it a bit. :-)
arylic Goodhart4 years ago
Ok, but do reply soon. Anways lets do something with cardboard and electronics.
Goodhart arylic4 years ago
How soon is soon? :-) My trip, which I am saving for, is this coming Sat. and it will be a week after that before I am paid again.

arylic Goodhart4 years ago
Ok, then have a good trip and best wishes.
Goodhart arylic4 years ago
I'm sorry, it is just bad timing on my end. Maybe afterward?
That would be the most epic battle. Heck I hear a sitcom.
Lol.
And I would defeat You In a battle of the Tapes. But first I need new tape I am out of the stuff.
Hey! I wanna do Kiteman!
Eh, go for it.

Somewhere deep inside my subconcious, my gutterbrained self chuckles. "I wanna do kiteman"

Oh my God, I'm gonna kill you!!

>_<

>Is violently ill<
Aww, you know I love you. I was just kidding! Besides, I put it in fine print (small text) It was read at your own risk. (this warning was in fine fine print)
hug.jpg
Seriously! I mean, he's 40 years old. :S
Eh? 41, actually, and what exactly is wrong with a 41 year old?

Kitewife quite likes, er, what KK's subconscious said.
Wellll, our dating ranges don't really overlap.

At all.

Nothing wrong with 41-year-olds , just a bit lot oogey in my case.

*cough* There is nothing in my brain's social programming to indicate how to respond to that...
..I like the creepiness rule - I know a guy who should really pay attention to that (52 vs 21!)
O_p <------------ eye blowout
This will blow your other eye out - she has a kid by him.
q_p I'm blind now... Ugh, that's seriously just not right...
blind? It looks like you are merely wall-eyed ;-)
shoots lithuim rain with a rpg
not the, um, comedian?
No, his is a real, non-celebrity person that I know in real life.
Besides, I once worked with a guy that was in his late 60's and was married to a 26 year old. I dropped by his farm once to pick up some hot compost (horse manure is very active and referred to as hot compost, once it gets working).
Ah ok, I was hoping you didn't know Woody Allen in real life, so I wasn't going to drop the name :-)
