I know they are simple but they are effective

Step 1: Paper Coffee Cup Telephone

2 paper or plastic 

1 5ft- 200ft of string your choice

1 hole punch

 I know this is a basic principle you punch a hole with a hole punch in bottom of each cup and slide a string through the hole and then tie a knot so the string is connecting the two cups togetherand then you are done this is great for little boys and girls who like to spy and chat ( my little bros love this concept) 

Step 2: Coffee Cup Listening Device

 Who says that you have to have a super genius mind or a super technology to make a high tech listening device well you can make your own with these simple techniques.


1 plastic or paper coffe cup

1 door with people telling secrets behind it

This concept is also a simple one it is very similar to the put your ear against the ground in a field and you will ear a stampede a mile away except you hear everything people say behind the door once you have a coffee cup put the bottom of the cup next to your ear then put the top part of the coffee cup against the door. And you will hear secrets that people have been hiding from you for years.

Bahahahahaha your funny dude

I'll' try this some day =]

 where you at on your vacation

 why is this sooo funny 

Idk................ I just thought it was ok =[ gosh

 ah thats okay i was just confused

ok, sorry for the confusion =]

 no prob


 *awkward silence*

those are the worst........................

 indeed they are

I know, especially when your trying to talk to someone you like (that happened to me today), but then after that you realize you dont really like them because you have nothing in common with them =]

 exactly its crazy i mean i will talk to someone about their car that they know NOTHING about and they just stare at you

I know, it is crazy, I don't have much in common with all the people around me because they are all wanna be gangsters, it's annoying =]

I don't know much about cars either eh

 ah well thats how it is down here buti mean i talk to chaps and chicks about other things to like if its a hot chick i will say you got a nice butt 

pervert.................I talk to a bunch of random people on myspace from like different places, and the few cool mexicans that don't want to be white... =]

 hey they are usually chicks my own age plus i look 18 so i really cant help that college chicks are talking to me

You are so cocky boo-boo...... omg.. hehe. it's ok......... im like that too......... I usually make the first move with guys......

 ya know guys dont usually like that

Because they wanna be machos when they are so not =/

 yeah i actually prefer if chicks do it then i know if they are single

But some girls are w#@res and they do it anyways...... I hate girls.....

 ya dont think i know that ya know i am a guy 

True, true..............  Girls are horrible, lucky I escaped their tribe years ago when I wrestled my freind robert in the 3rd grade =D, since then girls don't really talk to me =]
