Oh, and be sure to check the forums on Friday for another caption contest.


all i want to know is, does eric really shave all the sides of his head to where he only has hair on top?

No, I do. (It's a bit hard to shave bits of your own head evenly.)

oh damit I'm to late :D i just saw the picture and the first thing that pop'ed into my head was: "Remember kids, Check your ball's for cancer.... It might just make your day"

Before: I don't have the right tools available to make some cool Instructables. After: DIY Network is giving away $15,000 to spend on tools!

they are spending money on me? XD

I had to read what i wrote twice before i got it. Nice self-deprecation!

thank you its one of my strengths =)

First picture: Give me an i! Second picture: Give me a Y! Oh wait! i forgot the D in DIY!


Eric upon learning that Instructables qualifies as a bank under the bailout.

If we don't make our traffic numbers for the year, I'm demanding some sort of bailout. It's the new capitalism.

No, it's the last desperate gasp of the "old" (okay, just the last eight years') capitalism. Get in while you can :-)

Do you have access to a otnet or something? lol

nah, just lots of people I can intimidate...

Eric just heard that the new Instructables hoodies will come with extra long sleeves!

Thanks for putting this little contest on! That tape measure looks like a Komelon SS Gripper. I bought one as a gift a while back and it seemed like a nice one.


That Tape measure looks like the ones with my dad's work logo on it.

Congratulations zieak!

Have fun measuring stuff!

Congrats! I really thought mine would have a good chance.....

Haha, nice.

Gjdj3, mg0930mg, Adrian monk; Thank you!

Ooo, I missed out on THIS one :-)

I found out what to do with the 2 9 volt batteries!

Eric: I can lift one thousand pounds want to see. 2nd pic: See, Impressive huh? What do you mean you can't see it?"

Oh well, instructables chose what they chose. Thanks for the compliment,though.

You're welcome! Your's was by far the funniest!
