BANANAS: they SUCK

Posted by snook123 8 years ago


Cops suck.

First of all, I am going to say this out of experience and not from memes or from public opinion. Two days ago, I changed a shortcut icon to redirect to another website on a school computer. Well, I got caught after someone fell for it, and then the teacher told me that I could get in serious trouble for it. He got some cops to tell me how bad it was, and afterward, I was wondering how stupid they were. First of all, they said I shut down the system. I did not do that, I just changed the link. Second, they said I was "scarier than a thug with a gun because I could hack their computers and get all the passwords". I can do no such thing, what makes them think that a simple prank automatically makes me a "1337 hax0r"? Then they said I could be arrested for just that prank, but they decided to let me off because I was not aware of those rules. Cops suck. (at least the ones in this area do) EDIT- It seems like my email to the teacher completely backfired. The teacher COMPLETELY misunderstood the point of my message.

Sometimes you have to throw out the wheat with the chaff

I like slideshows, I know not everyone does, meh. I love instructables, with text and pictures, and the occasional video demonstrating the item. But the videos, oh dear Ghod, the videos. I don't really like the videos, but when these metacafe people carpet bomb the front page with a dozen videos, I want to punch them in the groin. So, nope, never, ever gonna look at another video again, don't care if you invented a space drive, and brought back a freaking green skinned alien babe with two navels, not gonna watch it. That's all, I feel better.

Can I turn a Hover mower into a Dog Poo vacuum sucker upper ?

I have an old but working hover mower (Flymo). How could i turn this into a vaccum device to suck up dog poo in my garden ? This isnt the model I have, but it works in the same way.     I can get my hands on plastic pipe duct tape etc, and obviously it would work from mains power.

As if I didn't have enough stress!

School sucks right now, have an A,B,C,& D, I'm stressed about that. But I come home today and I check my bank online and see that someone's used my debit card # to purchase $300 worth of soccer jerseys (WTF? SRSLY). SO I immediately call the bank (india) and tell them, guess what, since it's only pending they can't do anything, even though I alerted them, I have to wait until the money is stolen out of my account to file a fraud dispute, ridiculous. At least, I limit my liability to $50 by reporting it within two days (per FTC.gov), but it's a damned ass backward way to do it. BTW the banks solution, call the merchant,sigh, well their 800 number rang and rang, the other contact number went to voice mail, so they got a long detailed message. And of course, I cancelled my card, not at the banks suggestion. I has bad feeling about what a PITA this is going to turn into...

What is this tool?

Today, I had a clear out of the workshop (Okay, shed) and found this peculiar tool. It's being lingering around for years now, and I've never been able to figure out exactly what it is and where it came from. The orange thing pushes down and locks, and when it is at the bottom a tiny metal rod appears and dissapears again at the end of the white nozzle. It holds in place until you press the orange button, at which point it fires the orange thing out at a fairly high speed, and it stops when it reaches the end of the blue channel. If you cover over the nozzle, it fires very slowly, so it probably sucks air from there. Does anybody know what this tool is?

If your arm's tendon was connected to point 2 instead of 1, then wouldn't we be like 3-4 times stronger than we are now? A bit like C-3PO in Star wars. Look at a picture of his arms.

Windows 7 truely sucks

I put Windows 7 pro on my gaming PC, oh my god, it sucks so damn bad! Good thing I dual booted with Vista, I have no clue what everybody was thinking when they said it was good! Every 10 minutes, blue screen on death. Tried everything, removing ram, taking out the video card, changing the power supply, plugging it straight into the wall with out the battery back up, nothing worked, so I booted Vista and it worked great, had it on for 2 days so far. And yes, my computer is very compatible with 64-bit. Windows 7 had a 10 minute maximum. Windows Vista just works, I just wish it had XP mode.

Searching Sucks

What is up with the search? I used to search for stuff and a bunch of pictures and descriptions came up, I could quickly find what I was looking for by looking at the photos. Now it's a google style search with no images. This is completely awful and I will not use it nor waste a crapload of time searching for stuff that used to take 2 seconds. instrucables.com should be embarrassed because of how awful this search is.

Arrrrrrgh! Dial-up sucks! I can't watch anything on YouTube, play games online, or download anything! It makes me want to cry and slit my computer cables with an like an emo! By the way, I have dial-up because I live outside of the nearest town, and the cables don't go to out-of-town. And wireless sucks and is extremely expensive.

How can I get a ventilator to suck air from a smoke machine and trap the smoke?

 Hi, I`m making a 2meter laser etched cardboard dinamic sculpture face of a girl inhaling smoke with a smoke machine on the mouth, and I want to imitate this inhaling effect!:  2 Q> what can I use to get the "nose" to absorb the smoke? :  {"A fan or blower can be used to suck the vapor in. Then if you have a long enough duct or large enough chamber let the vapor evaporate/dissipate. You can also run it through a furnace filter to help condense the water vapor faster.

Love Sucks Party

My friend Bug is responsible for a fine Valentine's Day tradition: the Love Sucks party.This party is held whenever he's single (according to the rules below), and is open to any single friends and their single friends. It's usually held at a distinctly non-romantic type of restaurant with ample seating and strong drinks. I know of at least one marriage that's come of Love Sucks parties, but that's really not the point, is it?The rules:1) Single is defined as a) really single, b) your SO is at least 3,000 miles away, or c) you don't have a date for Valentine's Day and your romantic entanglements require a white board for proper mapping, otherwise known as the Circus Trainer Clause. (As in, "my girlfriend is out for dinner with her husband and her girlfriend, the circus trainer..." or something equally convoluted enough to require a whiteboard for mapping.) Either way, participants are likely to be a bit grouchy about the holiday.2) Single friends can bring another of their single friend as a "non-date", ie someone they would never date. There may be more rules, but as I've never been (un)lucky enough to attend one of Bug's Love Sucks parties I'm a bit fuzzy on the other details. (Bug, can you help out here?) It should be noted that he's NOT planning one this year, as he doesn't qualify to attend. ;-) This shouldn't stop you from picking up this worthy tradition. Just make sure to bring a whiteboard.UPDATE: here's Bug's official description and invite template for all to use.

confetti blower clogging

Hello everyone. I have a question which I think will be a simple one for you guys. I bought these mini confetti blowers for our church. They suck confetti, which are mainly small shiny rectangular pieces or some rose shaped paper-like material pieces, and blow them to the air. So ours came with a hose setup to suck the confetti: http://i.imgur.com/L3dzXMM.jpg I decided to modify it to suck confetti from inside a box like these ones do: http://i.imgur.com/EkE930u.jpg Here's a sketch of how it looks now with the box I made. http://i.imgur.com/Q5rPvfp.png What's happening though, the confetti pieces after few seconds form a clog where the box connects with the tube. http://i.imgur.com/pd7ZYFL.png If I push that clog with my hand, the confetti is sucked in and flows through the tubes and is blown just fine. I modified my box from the inside like so, but it didn't change anything. http://i.imgur.com/60vn7yW.png -> http://i.imgur.com/F5hzBwr.png Someone unlike me who actually understands why that is happening, can you explain why clog happens and how would you suggest me to modify my box shape to fix this? Not that the hose setup is bad, it just looks like a modified vacuum cleaner like that and not very pretty to have in ceremonies and we still need a box to put the confetti pieces and the hose in to suck the confetti so I thought I could just have the box on the machine itself and make it easier to handle.
