We all went to school sometime, right? I bet more than half of you are still in school. School School Schooooooooool. We all hate it. We all know it. And yet, we still go there. It's like death, but without dying right? Yeah. Actually, no. I went a bit over the top, but it's bad. I'd rather be here, making and sharing instructables than there, doing algebra. So, what I'm trying to say is: SCHOOL IS UNAVOIDABLE BUT IT CAN BE EASIER! That's our motto here and we're STICKIN' to it! (Unless someone comes up with a better one. >.>) So, thanks guys! I'll be posting the rules, guidelines and how to become a "School Basher". I'll let you know EVERYTHING. Thanks.

I know this question comes up a lot in life but someone has been nice enough to help people answer it, only problem is last time I woke up cradled in the arms of a Raptor it survived about 35 seconds before I butchered and fried it... There's a club of such people, Chuck Norris is still working on the T-shirt.Anyway the quiz thinks 1 minute, 41 seconds... Link via Neatorama

Okay, I am in the process of writing a story. It is an action/adventure story involving zombies. I need to find a place in the US with a high population and is not too too close to water. Any ideas? This will be the initial starting point for the main character.

I was just in a park where one tick bit me on the neck. i removed it. while i was driving home i saw another tick crawling on my hand. i freaked out and scraped the tick on the nearest thing on my car (the cup holder). i then pulled over and looked for it and i couldn't find it. i tried again and i still couldn't find it. and yes i've done the google search for it but the info is so varied some say 1 month and some say 2 years. i don't know if it's a soft bodied or hard bodied tick, but i believe it's a hard bodied tick. it was about the size of a headphone jack port, ya know like on an iPod where you plug the headphones into? it was that size. and it was dark colored like brown or black. keep in mind i had already had one bite me i wasn't going to sit there and examine the thing to try to determine what kind it was. if it can survive a long time is there a way i can kill it? the only thing i could think of is fumigation- and i'm not fumigating my car.

I love all things survival, and I used to love Survivorman with Les Stroud. After he stopped his Survivorman series, he made a new show called Survive This. It's about survival among kids. I love this show, and have watched the entire first season. The second season is out now, but it being a Canadian TV show, I can't seem to watch it on my TV, or even find a place to watch it online. Season One was on Cartoon Network, so I could watch that. Cartoon Network dropped the show, though, so now I can't find a place to watch Season Two. Can anyone help me? Thanks!

Okay, LOTS of supposing here. So lets suppose someone dug a hole through the center of the earth, and managed to cover up the sides of the hole with a magma resistant cover of some sort. You start out by getting one of the spacesuits from nasa and decide to jump in the hole. Would you survive? I know that a human in the open sky diving position will go about 200 km/h, and I believe a space suit can survive up to 250 degrees fahrenheit. Please tell me how you came to that conclusion because it's been killing me how to figure it out. And also please include any formulas that are used, they're good to know!

I've been interested in survival-ism for as long as I can remember, and I've seen oodles of instructables on how to assemble the best survival kits. But over time, I've come to wonder (and this is where you can help me), isn't the best survival kit knowledge? Like, instead of constantly carry a knife or something with you wherever you go, isn't it better to just know how to make a knife, and such? Please give me your opinions on this subject.

While sitting down to actually type this out, I realized that some might read this as gross or creepy. I'm curious however, so my question to you brilliant instructamals out there is this: If I carefully pluck a hair from my head, is it possible or feasible to provide it an environment where it could be "kept alive" or grown? I realize the hair itself is not actually alive, but it's the follicle I'm interested in. If provided a sterile tray with agar, what elements would be required to save the follicle? Hair Multiplication uses a similar method, but I can't locate any good information on it.

Evening everybody, I am working on a altoid survival kit to send to a friend who just started university. I was thinking things like condoms, mints, pencil & pen. But Im kind of stuck now. What else should I throw into it do you think?

I really want to make a few paracord survival bracelets, and my two things to ask are what is the best kind of paracord to use for one of these bracelets, and what method on instructables is best for carrying as much cord as possible on one bracelet.

I have a survival blanket that claims to reflect back 90% of my radiant body heat and I've always wondered: If a criminal were to hide under a bush wrapped in a survival blanket would he be able to evade a police helicopter searching with a thermal imaging camera? Thank you.

Just want to know. Why is there this waiting period after the judging? At first I thought that the winners are announced right after the judging ends, but I was wrong.

Hello Everyone: This is my first post in this forum. I have a website on preparedness and survival. I have posted also my first instructable as well basted on this topic. So my challenge to everyone is to use only chip bags and duct tape to come up with something that could save your life. Other than the fact that potatoe chips are part of a well balanced diet. The bags can be used to make all sorts of things. Have fun. Like this one below. Robert (Survival Central editor)

Hi everyone, Here's the deal. In a few weeks I'll be leading my church drama team on a road trip. Not just a small trip but 1300 MILES / or at least 21 hours. Me, one other adult, and 12 teens. I know I'm going to want some essential items in a road trip survival kit, but I'm taking suggestions. Pepto, Tylenol, Ibuprophen, duct tape. . . It's 12 against 2, help! (And if it's not coming across, I mean for the sanity sake. Altoid survival tins and a maintaince tool box will of course come.)

On every episode of Dual Survival, Dave wears a shirt or something with a little man with a bow on it. I belive that is the brand, but can somebody tell me what it's called?
Asked by schoonovermr 7 years ago
The Girls Scouts are hosting an Earth Day event that is about preparedness and the skills needed to be a survivor. I'm trying to create stations or booths with different skills for students and adults to try or learn. For example, one station will be learning knots. Another station will have simple materials for participants to make a makeshift shelter. I need ideas that are fairly simple to teach or show at that stations that can be done in less than 10 minutes. I'm also interested in a game. Thank you.
