Merry Christmas!

In a few days it's Christmas, and since Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year, I wanted to wish you all a merry Christmas! I also realised Christmas and creating are very much alike: they both bring joy, happiness and gifts, so that makes Christmas and Instructables an even better combination. Merry Christmas!!!

Electric Eel Powers Christmas Tree

Y'know, I've always wondered about this. An aquarium filled with exotic fish here is using an electric eel to power lights on a Christmas tree.Each time the electric eel at the Aqua Toto Gifu aquarium touches a copper wire in its tank, it sends power that lights up globes decking a Christmas tree.From the Mainichi Daily News. Can't get the link to work to verify, so possibly a hoax.

I'm bunking off!

Goodbye, peeps! Plans have changed slightly for Christmas, so I probably won't be near a broadband connection very often, if at all, until the New Year, just in time for my second anniversary as an Instructableer. In the mean time, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, enjoy the Solstice and the New Year and any other holidays I've missed.

Merry Christmas! (plus sneak peek at recent project)

Hey guys! Before i say anything else, Merry Christmas! I know I've been quiet, but that's because I've been working on something big. I have a good idea of when it will come out(about jan 3). And here's a tip for you guys. When things get quiet, things start to get crazy(crazy for me anyway lol). If I'm gonna finish this, I'm going to need a little more knex. I think that I am going to make a mag fed rifle that shoots green rods. Pics are handle. Third pic is handle attached to something.

Christmas Appetizers

Ok guys, I need some help. My mother has decided to throw a Christmas party, and I need help coming up with things to eat. Just little appetizers and finger foods. She wants to go ahead and get a menu together, so that we can kind of price everything (money is a bit tight this year). I'm drawing a blank as to what kind of goes with the holiday. Especially given the restrictions: No tomatoes, No corn, No shellfish. Some people coming over are extremely allergic to them. I have been asked to make a cheesecake and some bacon wrapped chicken. So that's two things. I need a few more. Any suggestions? Really any food that goes with the holiday, or just social get togethers with be appreciated.

Is There Something Wrong With My Tree?

I just checked the water level of my tree. When I pulled my hand out, it was covered in tiny white and black squirming bugs (about the size of a grain of sand). Is that, well, natural for a Turkish Fir tree.
