While doing electrolysis on some pennies, (Pence?) I noticed a copper coating on my + copper lead?

Is there something special about this? Also, Is this a form of electroplating? I doused some pennies in vinegar for about a week+ and tried this. On a thinner, magnet wire lead, (copper +) it had what I beleive is a dark green copper salt, that burned blue. Can anyone Identify this? Also, I changed the diameter of the lead, to about 1/16 - 1/8 (Copper lead, +) and It seemed like that lead was powder coated with copper. Is there a reason it would not be a copper salt? The other was coated with what I think is Zinc.

Ash Wednesday!

Hey everybody, tomorrow is Ash Wednesday! Time to celebrate!You know what that means - it's time to make your own copy of the Necronomicon, attach a chainsaw arm and settle down to watch Evil Dead 21 and Army of Darkness. Some of my friends have been doing this for well over a decade, and it's one of the best holidays outside of Halloween!1(Skip ED1 - it isn't very good.)

TV like websites anyone

Has anbody else used sites like hulu.com(only for USA, sorry Europe) and TV.com and other sites like that to watch free tv? Because i just got rid of the dial-up at my house and got a 1mbs DSL conncetion and am starting to watch TV online, being that i still recieve free over the air TV and with the interent i can watch all sorts of amazing shows like mythbusters and how its made(and occasionally the office). And after watching all of those shows online, and for free I was wondering if anyone knows of any decent converters/downloaders(you know just a regular flv. downloader) for me to get these on to my iPod, because that would be awesome to be able to watch all sorts of tv shows on my iPod, legally. So post some other sites that you use to watch TV and converters/downloaders you use.

How do I tighten the gears on my bike?

Periodically, the gears on my bike get loose, and the gears don't change as well. When I take it in to the bike shop, the guy fixes it in two minutes. Is there an easy way to do this at home. I know it involves the screws near the actual gear shift, but I'm not quite sure on how to do this properly.

K'nex plus bow

After seeing the topic On kl about a K'nex Nerf crossbow, I thought. Why are we so intent that ONLY repeaters can win K'nex wars? I go to nerf wars, and almost EVREY gun there is single shot. And you know what? the single shots win. and in K'nex the repeaters almost alway will break at some point in a war. So I made a K'nex primary. but made under Nerf primary terms. I give you, the knex + bow. Now, I am prepared for 200000 flames about this gun. you guys are going to say "it's just a killerk pistol" Or if you look closer "it's just a Dd27" well, I dont give a **** I like it and I think if I ever go to a K'nex war with k sayers being used I will win. Please don't flame.

Bumpy art sets new trend.

It may not have reached the US yet, or it may have come from there, but there's a new fashion in body art - painting pregnant tums.The two-hour-plus process involves painting pictures from a range of ideas - or the Mum's own ideas - and a professional photo-shoot to preserve the event.(The reporter) was curious to know what kind of people want to invite a stranger to paint on such a personal, and special, part of their body."Anyone who wants a nice memento," said Erica."At the end of the day I think we should celebrate births and bumps."Body painting has always been around, but more people are picking up on this type of body painting now and it's becoming more mainstream."I want to offer it as a service to pregnant women. It's a little bit different and it's nice for mums-to-be because it's a chance for them to sit back and relax." BBC articleThe artist's websiteFacepainting Association

How to go about making my golf cart run cooler?

I have an old golf cart. Where talking mid-to-late 80's. Last summer the engine compartment got so hot that the little bits of the plastic surrounding the gas tank partially melted and deformed. Luckily the melting that took place didn't do any real damage. But I'm afraid that if it happens again something might catch fire. So I was wondering if there are anyways to make that thing run WAY cooler.

Can I have permission to get rid of my TV? Answered

+ It's analog, with a 13" (no, really, 13 inches diagonally) screen. + I haven't plugged it in since I moved a year ago: I rely on Hulu and Netflix on my (bigger-screened) iMac. + If I really wanted to watch broadcast TV in the future, I could get a TV-tuner-thingo for the iMac (for perhaps not too much more than the cost of a digital-to-analog converter). + My apartment is sub-dinky, and I need to get rid of anything extraneous. + The thrift store down the street is actually taking donations of crt-based analog TV's for free (i.e., no disposal charge). So, what's stopping me? ...I'm not sure: - Some nagging fear that I'm forgetting some vitally important function that only a 1996-model Toshiba Shrimpscreen can perform? - Or maybe just a perception that it'd be Un-American not to have a TV set somewhere in the house? I think I just need someone to say "Oh, fer the love of Pete - just give the darned thing the old heave-ho already" - anyone out there willing to oblige?

My big telescope project

I'm starting to design a very large telescope for my "backyard", ideally it will be a 1 meter (or larger) Prime Focus Telescope. I am in the process of engineering the primary mirror and have concluded that I need to create an array of small hexagon mirrors similar to the Keck Observatory but smaller. This will decrease the quality of the telescope but it will make the project affordable. The biggest problem with this design is that the mirrors have to be exactly placed and tilted to form the a perfect parabolic curve, and frankly I have no idea how to practically do that. If anyone has an idea about how this can be done or questions about my project i would be glad to hear from you.
