How Did You Find Instructables?

How did you find Instructables? From a friend? Random internet surfing? I was in a store one day and I saw a rubberband gun and thought that it was cool. so when I got home i looked it up on the internet and eventually irwinner's knex RBG came up. I built it and was hooked on Instructables. I had finally found a group of people who arent afraid to show the world their ideas be they world changing ones like j_l_larson's butter pen( you should really patent it) or just fun ones such as the altoids cotten candy machine made by gimmelotsarobots. I joined the day I turned 13 and have been a proud member since. Please tell how you discovered Instructables and how (and if) it changed your life. Thank you so much irwinner!

I was looking up info on CNC milling machines when I saw a link to one of the DIYs on Google. I haven't done anything yet, but as soon as I clean out my garage, I know where I'll be spending all my waking hours!
I love to build things, on on my frequent google searches for DIY projects, I stumbled across this website. it was love at first sight! and now I spend the majority of my time on the internet here.

I wonder if Kiteman is trying to hint in some way this topic has been brought up before and to search your forum topic before posting first...... but i could be wrong. I StumbleUpon'd on this site.
