Cutting Rope at a height

Hey guys, I need to cut down a banner on the second story on a side of a building. The banner is held by 4 string/ropes at each corner and I do not have access to a ladder. What would you suggest is the best way to do this? I thought of putting a scissors on the end of a long stick and devising a string pulley system to operate the scissors from the bottom. Like have the scissors open and position them with the rope between the shears. Then I would just pull on the string to snap them shut. What do you think? Any better ideas?? Thanks!

3 inches of pain

Does anyone remember Gattaca? Well that movie explored the possibility of limb extensions in a fantastic manner. Apparently there's a vanity medical procedure to do this called Limb Lengthening. I'm not sure if anyone in the US does it, but for 100,000+ dollars you can add a few painful inches to your legs in Cairo.This procedure seems reasonable for midgets, or other deformities but for people 5'6" you'd think that this surgery is pure vanity. But that may not be true, a survey of CEO's of fortune 500 companies shows that they are on average ~6' tall. Another research study that followed thousands of people from birth to adulthood shows that an inch of height above the average of 5' 9" is approximately equal to a salary increase of $789 a year.What do you think? Is this vain, or a good way to get around prejudice against average/short people._BGvia:boingboing.net and http://men.style.com/details/features/landing?id=content_6838

I'm looking for a simple way to raise/lower an existing desk for seated/standing pc work.

This is the closest thing I've found yet: http://www.ergospec.com/products/retro_lift_systems/retrofit.html I have been tinkering with a crank/cable idea, maybe counter-weighted; nothing good yet.  It has to raise/lower about 18 inches smoothly and with good stability.  Manual cranking is preferred - electric motors or hydraulics seem too complex/expensive.  Thanks! Just uploaded a photo of the desk. One more note - if I were stating from scratch, I might look at one of these: http://www.geekdesk.com/.  But I like this desk, just want a bit more flexibility (maybe even slide a treadmill under one day if I can raise it even further)

How to control the height of Quadcopter?

Hi, Is there a way to control the height of the quadcopter using the MPU 6050. I know that the sensors i.e. accelerometers and gyroscope measure the orientation of the copter and stabilizes them but how would u measure or like control the height of the copter? Is the controlling of height depends on the IMU unit of completely on the throtle provided to the motors?

When Toast Flies

It is not often that I find something so useless so awesome. Freddie Yauner's toaster pops your toasted bread way up into the air with high-pressure carbon dioxide. He is going to try to break his own world record of the highest toaster pop, which currently stands merely at the height of his ceiling. An added bonus of this: if he pops it to the right height, he may be able to avoid the curse of the toast always falling butter-side down.Link

Blade height? Answered

You mention that the blade height should be just above the wood stock you are cutting but you don't give a reason for that. Although I have heard that before about the height of the blade I have never heard a good explaination as to why. Other than maybe saftey is there a reason?

Building a taller lift for my chair

So, I own an  adjustable bar-height stool with min-height of 24" and max-height of 33" and I wonder if it is possible to either   1) retrofit the existing hydraulic lift so I can get 10" more in height  2) Or completely build from scratch a similar hydraulic lift as the one I currently have installed except the new one would provide a max height of about 45"   I would appreciate any tips in accomplishing either of the above listed options please.

Why are there few or no clouds in the stratosphere? Answered

        The stratosphere (STRAT  uh sfihr) lies above the troposphere. It extends from about 11km to 50km above the earth. In the lower part of the stratosphere, the temperature does not change with height. But, in the upper part , temperature increases with height.  At 50km, the temperature is about 7o/c.          Air in the stratosphere is dry and thin, and there are very few or no clouds.
