Head to Head Contest: You Choose. Answered

Picture of

I've decided to test an idea for some friendly competition. The rules are simple: two volunteer members will be given a week to create an Instructable based on a common subject. Whoever creates the better Instructable (higher quality, cooler, featured, most voted for, etc) will win a patch similar to the images below. Because this is the first run, and I can't think of a subject, the competing members will have to agree on a subject of their choosing. If there is a flood of volunteers, the community will vote on who they want to see face off. In this trial, I will allow up to four separate pairs to compete. If this doesn't make any sense, well, I just woke up! :P

The stats are as follows:

Lithium Rain VS. gmjhowe: Card, any kind of card, and it has to plug into a computer. Deadline: to be determined.

Matt1497 VS. watermelonhead : Duct tape hoodie. Deadline: 10th of August.

Awwww, come on, you want to go mano-a-mano or monter-a-mano? Do ya, it may be your lucky day... Umm, okay. So the lesson here is not to be too different that you become unique even though you should be different to stand out from the crowd.

You do know which side your bread is buttered on. It's not like there is a lot of dough involved here.

Frankly, it doesn't matter on which side the butter resides, because it always lands buttered side down. So make a butter sandwich and confuse convention.
