I hate being bored in school during lectures about either crap I really don't care about, stuff I've already learned, something that's completely erelevent to what your learning, don't wan't to do anything, ect. This is an instructable to show you what you can do! =D I am also free for anyone to leave comments on what you do, sort of like a blog. Or just comments in general. I hope this helps having a little more fun during the worst times of your life. ;(
Step 1: Paperclip Jumper
This is a fun thing to do when your bored, and just need to do something. O.K. Let's cut to the chase. (Luv that line!) Materials(Paperclip+hands=smiley :) Take the paperclip, and you see that prong on the far outside?, bend it so that it's at around a 45 degree angle. (Angle doesn't matter a ton.) Now, take the loopy thing and bend it out so it looks like a triangle with the other prong. Sorry if you don't understand. I will try my best to help you on all of these.=D See that prong that's "inside" of the triangle? Bend it so that it matches up with the other line. Now, bend those two lines away from each other, but keep them paralel.(Very important.) Now, take those again, and bend them back, but not so that they stay there, and hold it. (Basically push them together.) Now, while they're still touching each other, lock it, by sliding them on to the opposite side, and when you let go, it should stay, and be a triangle! Now, here's how to make the sucker fly. Place the shortest side on the table. Simply drop so that it falls sideways, the tension will snap, smacking one of the prongs against the surface, launching it into mid air. ( Once I got one of these things to go 40 feet during class, I rofld so hard, no joke. Good times.) Tada. AND these work multiple times, you just have to re-lock it.
