You should find or buy a cheap toy and try to make a prosthetic arm out of it! Then join my community, Mod Squad www.instructables.com/group/modsquad/ I'm trying to find people to make arms out of toys and we will give the arms to child amputees in developing nations. So this way you can have fun making stuff with your time off and help a child!

Good digging weather! Think about it - three hurricanes in as many weeks, how many weeks of the hurricane season left...?

Y'know, that actually isn't a bad idea, come to think of it, he could do a real nice job in a week, even with just a shovel, and then line it with cinderblock and put in an entrance above ground and a roof, and you've actually got a pretty good tornado/wind/all around storm shelter...I'd try that if we didn't have a basement...

it's really not worth it... when it gets bad, we evacuate... thanks for the concern though!

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

I'm glad you evacuate. But sometimes other things, like tornados, come suddenly and without warning. It happened to my grandparents and uncles-they had no storm shelter, and had to go inside their mobile home when a twister sprang up. I sure wish they had had a shelter... :'( Seriously, get a shelter. They have tornados in Texas, sometimes.

there was a tornado in utah one time!
when stuff happens, stuff happens, sometimes you don't see it coming and... stuff happens.
sometimes making/buying/keeping a shelter really doesn't seem worth it.
we evacuate(if we have to) and put the furniture inside.... nothing else.

If the ground saturates, those holes are referred to as "wells" but if you can float, it might not be so bad :-) Put me on a mountain top if flooding is the course of the day.

I have 2 new videos.
One is about the first compound parabolic solar cooker I made and one is about doing VERY cheap optics experiments. If you combine the knowelege from the 2 or them, then check out http://www.fossilfreedom.com/increase-output.html
and
http://www.appropedia.org/Understanding_Solar_Concentrators
you can design a supa dupa solar cooker for use after the next big disaster in your area for cooking food and pasturising water and perhaps for outdoor showers too.

i'll see what i can do! and if you don't mind, i'll try to make it into a fire-starter too!

Select as Best AnswerUndo Best Answer

It is designed to not be a fire starter. The light is supposed to stay on a relatively large area (the cooking pot) rather than a tiny point. So probably you will not be able to start fires! Just use a magnifing glass or sheet magnifier to start fires. The sheet magnifiers are quick to start fires but you cannot use them to cook food!
