My parents have everything they want, so finding Christmas gifts is not easy...

This year I made them a MAGIC F-BOMB!

Ask the Magic F-Bomb any yes/no question, flip it over, and boy will it give you a response!

Step 1: You Will Need These Things

- Magic 8 Ball
- Sushi in a Clam Shell Container
- Nylon Cord
- Embossing Label Maker
- Googly Craft Eyes (see photo)
- Super Glue (for plastics)
- Silicon Tent Sealer
- Black Textured Spray Paint (such as Krylon Textured Shimmer)
- Putty (any kind that bonds and is sand-able when dry)
- 6-Pack of Beer (in bottles)
- Empty Toilet Paper or Paper Towel Roll
Awsome idea thanks for shareing
I am normally against profanity but the bomb shape/f-bomb pun is just too funny. I am so dazzled and impressed that I think I am actually going to do this - complete with that word! Thank you.
Totally making this for my sister and another for my brother-in-law, They will go nuts over them!!!!! AWESOME INSTRUCTABLE!!!!!<br>
that just gave me a good idea. Take magic 8-ball, cut in half, remove guts. insert speaker set to play an audio file *you can guess what it would say* triggered by a button installed on the outside. drill holes on in the ball for sound to escape.<br>The F Bomb Grenade!
I'm not sure if it would work, but, since the piece inside the 8-ball is actually a 20-sided figure, an icosahedron, I think it would be possible to use a 20-sided di and therefore have 20 different answers. There are blank dice available (without imprinted number, just flat-sided dice) so this would make it even easier. If they wouldn't fit, perhaps simply 6-sided dice?
I guess the trick would be finding a blank die that also will float in the blue stuff. If it doesn't float, you wouldn't be able to read the snarky comments on the die. <br> <br>Would be cool if you could make it work with 20 answers though.
I'm making this now for a friend of mine. He's a case manager, and I believe it's going on his desk :)<br><br>Thanks for the Instructable! Great idea!
that is F'in awesome
WTF are the beer bottles for?
Look at the last step. You can use any glass bottle ;).
The safety stand is important in preventing premature detonation. It actually must be a bottle from a six-pack, to ensure that the bottles are as uniform as possible, (of course you have to empty the bottles first). The other five are placed at equidistant points around the space being used for assembly. I'm really surprised that the author doesn't make more of this important safety point.<br><br>;-)<br><br>Great instructable, and of course there are other platonic solids that can be used as decision making &quot;cubes&quot;.
Good point. Emptying the bottles also ensures that you are calm and collected for bomb handling operations.
Holy crap! You should totally patent this.
Not too sure you can patent it at this point since it's already on public domain.
Kiteman is prolly raight that it's un-patentable but you could prolly trademark the idea and format.
are you f-ing kidding me? maybe i will!
It's it probably un-patentable (no new technology, just a new package), but you could change the licence to something more restrictive, so that you are the only one allowed to make money off it.
hmmm, is there an instructable that can help me figure out how to do that?
No, just edit this Instructable's licence.
Yikes! Are any of the non-commercial ones good enough? I'm so f-ing confused :).
Click &quot;edit&quot;, then click the &quot;publish&quot; tab. You'll have to fill out that page again from scratch, but you can choose the licence again - you probably want the <strong>Attribution Non-commercial No Derivatives (by-nc-nd)</strong> licence.<br> <br> Have a look at the <a href="http://creativecommons.org/">Creative Commons site</a> for more information on how the licences work.
You are awesome! Thank you!
You're welcome.
The author can still get a design patent, just not a utility patent (See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Design_patent). Design patents protect the form of a functional item - not its functionality. Also, the author can copyright the specific combination of words for the choice dice.
awesome :)!!!
That was my first thought. This is genius. You probably won't retire off of it, but I bet you could sell an easy million plus just at Spencers.
Places like Newberry Comics would make you rich! You could dominate the world! &gt;:D
f any of you want to make it easyer, let the ball in one Peace because the oricnal cube also has good answers<br>Start up with step 5 : &quot;transform the ball into a bomb-shape&quot;.<br>So you need only the 8-ball, the the wasabi cup a peace of nylon-cord, Super Glue (for plastics) and Black Textured Spray Paint (such as Krylon Textured Shimmer)<br><br>and as mounting for the ball tu spray it on:<br>-The beer-bottle (or any other bottle may be water or lemonade)<br>-The Empty Toilet Paper or Paper Towel Roll
in the List, what you neet to make the Bomb there are Googly Craft Eyes.<br>for what of the bomb are they?
yep, they go inside of the cube to make it float
the dots go inside the cube i think
LMAO ONE OF MY FRIENDS MADE THIS AND WHEN I ASKED &quot;Will i get a awesome X-Box?&quot; Response &quot;$%*&amp; NO!!!!&quot; AND I WAS LIKE WTF?????
This is the kind of thing a tech manager would keep on his desk. Great idea and a great instructable,
So awesome.
This is too F-ing cool!! FanFreakintastic job!!
Oh, that is a classic Make.<br><br>A Hall of Famer!
woah! that means a lot. thanks!
You're welcome - I just wish I'd gotten to the Feature button first.
Feature button?
There is a secret society within the heart of Instructables...<br><br>Nah, not really. But there is a &quot;layer&quot; between site admins and the general members who have the ability to Feature projects that are awesome. We (the Feature Team) have a couple of extra buttons available to us when we look at an instructable: we can feature, or we can add to keywords (go, see), or we can change the category if it's been put in the wrong place by the author.<br><br>
Ahhhh, got it :)
They are called &quot;Feature creatures&quot; LOL
Awesome build! And just the thing to play with while sitting on your <a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Giant-Fn-Computer-Key-StoolChair/">Fn</a> butt :-D
Haha! I think we've got a great Fn start to a Fn Instructables Guide.
Kelsy you use that fn joke a lot haha
Not just me. I happen to like Caitlinsdad's work.
I like it too.
I love it, great job!
AWESOME idea!!!!!
