Um... My Petty Officer GSM1 would look at me, and give me an un-sat. just because the sight of me rubbing a banana peel on my boot would look slightly…… odd, if he saw me, but It’s a quick thinking idea, I usually have inspections after chow anyways, so I’ll get my daily potassium and a not perfect, but a quick buff… I like it.

Did you get this idea from the instructable I published a month ago?

No, i never saw yours

It's a good idea to to a quick search for similar instructables before you publish... there's nothing wrong with publishing something on the same subject, so long as you're building on the idea or approaching the problem from a different perspective -- but in this case the banana idea is so simple this instructable is pretty much duplicating what was already posted, minus the recipe for a non-toxic waterproofing cream. It's happened to me many times, getting an idea for what I think is a great original instructable, only to see it's already been done. So either I toss my idea or I take it farther...

well i didnt see yours and you used a woman shoe! i used boots

Clearly there are slight differences. You also added a step I consider unnecessary: the banana peel does a great job at cleaning shoes and wiping off dirt. So I'm not saying this is plagiarism, just that you should check before you publish something to make sure it's not already on this site.

Dang belsey... you need to chill dude... or dudette ;)

ITS a dudette
