Invent the tallest thing ever by skipping step 5 :P

What's going on? Did i just have a stroke?

i am confused, the istructions were unclear to me :)

 I tried this and I'm sure I followed the instructions accurately ... BUT
After a while the much taller thing topples and becomes much smaller.
Is this normal?

this is sort of obvious

didn't monty python have a skit about this? some club based on putting things on top of other things? now, what if i wanted to make, say, a priceless one of a kind faberge egg taller? do i just hold it up higher? and what if i drop it? and what if the items i want to make taller are ROUND?!?! My marbles are feeling quite inadequate next to my stack of cd's!! and finally, to take another monty python idea, couldn't you just dig a pit and stand in it next to the item you wish was taller?

thats all i can say

you forgot the addition of a trench coat. all you nay sayers have some point, many things stacked on top of one another make nothing taller. a final step was forgoten though, probably the most important. if you put a trench coat around the stacked item then they DO become taller. simple logic people!!

if I were to say that this was not a very good instructable, that would be an understatement. everyone knows how to stack things, and as crapflinger said, they don't actualy get taller.

crapflinger (author)2006-11-14

....stacking something doesn't make "the thing" taller..."the thing" doesn't change just...have more of "the thing" lined up in a vertical axis. it's a shame that people feel the need to waste time like this...why not do something useful with your a job at Mcdonalds...cuz that's probably where you'll be working the rest of your life

I have a complaint about this method. From the picture, three stacks appear to have been made out of said "a thing". I have done rigorous field testing with this process and determined that it is in fact possible to make "a thing" even taller using only two such stack. Needless to say, I leave this point up to the conjecture of my fellow mechanical engineers.

wow! i never knew how to do that!(if you don't know what sarcasm is skip this comment)

raz (author)2006-09-21

omg that is the sadest thing ever!!!!!!!!!!!!

This looked like a very productive guide so I thought I'd try it myself. Somehow I skipped step three though and needless to say my things were not as tall as they could have been.
