      I honestly check Instructables everyday for new and updated material. I'm starting to notice a lot of younger children posting absolute garbage. I would like to motion a user age limit. No one younger than the age of 16 should be allowed to waste bandwidth and more so, their life.

      wtf?, the title for this should be "Basic Motor Skills for Dummies"..jees what a waste of my time

      Good, clear instructions, but I have one question.

      Referring to step four, and the phrase " a knife".

      What is a knife?

      you look like white trash, brush your teeth and have an even haircut, and stop actin stupid to try to people to laugh at you.

      It's not particularly reasonable to attack someone based on their looks. You learn this in the lower grades of elementary school. The fact that you don't know that makes me question your education. This Instructable meets the requirements set by the site and is better than any of the zero Instructables you've posted.
