The World's worst Instructables? Answered

Here are the top most negatively-rated instructables (as of 10 Jun 2007):

It doesn't stop falling... -46 it's still the most moronic post on the site (?):
BLOW UP A GLASS SNAPPLE WITH YOUR HAND!!!!!
https://www.instructables.com/id/EVBGUDRGU9EUBYRQ3B/

A recent spurt of -ves takes:
Opening up a coke machine to 2nd place with -21
https://www.instructables.com/id/EWOYNZ04N8EWIJLOX6/

Some +ve rating takes How to roll a Joint ! (if you dont like it don't read it !!) down to -20
https://www.instructables.com/id/EFGG7JWF18DW9NB/
To tie with:
How to perform your own Tongue Bifurcation also at -20
https://www.instructables.com/id/E53LXTNKPKEXCFG4K7/

going up the chart to -18, it's very poor indeed:
making the strongest hand-held laser stronger
https://www.instructables.com/id/E8FS0ZXF1B3R8DV/

-17 and still falling through blatent but admitted plaigarism
Soda Tab Chain
https://www.instructables.com/id/EDW2YEMF0ZSTFDK/

https://www.instructables.com/id/knex-extreme-gun/


Yes I remember that one, it both sucks and blows.

L

Yeah, that's the first time I saw that one, tis true though.

what about "scab"

Oh yes I remember that. Another example of the need for some content-control? L

"extreme mini knex gun" has a lower rating than all of these.

umm ow to blow a a snapple bottle with your hand is now -52 lol

wow scratch that its gone to -55 wow what a difference a few hours can make lol

Er, no....but I do forget sometimes and hit the nearest reply rather then the PAGE reply....sorry about that....didn't mean to make you feel paranoid (one paranoid person here is enough LOL).

No it's ok i do that sometimes to.(i'm not paranoid)

wow how to roll a joint is now down to only -13

Yes, that one seems to have got some support after the initial backlash. -13 is nowt these days (I should have a go at updating these. L

there cant be negative ratings it only stays at zero it doesnt go into negative numbers anymore!

Wow, where did How to open a sprite come from?

(thanks)

L

Yes, I see. Well, this post must stand as a picture of how things were before that change occurred. L

I wouldn't call negative rating equivalent to "bad" -- after all, can we prove the negatives? Or is the negative rating really an affirmative thus adding to it's overall popularity? :p (sorry, couldn't resist) I'll bet the "worst" ones are the ones without rating... After all, someone had to care enough to take the time to give a negative rating. Negative popularity is popularity however you look at it :p

(I don't disagree) I couldn't think of a more appropriate title, which would still attract some interest. Since the highest rated Instructables tend to be presented by default, a big +ve becomes disproportionate. I think some of the above are of interest because they have attracted so many -ve clicks. L

I'm going to guess that you clicked next a whole bunch of times to get this.

Here's a tip (I probably shouldn't share): &reverse=true

I viewed by rating and changed the offset value, to 4185 I think.

Regards

L

Oh yeah. You can do that too.

What about the tinfoil finger skateboard? That was hideously useless.

-3 It might not be very good, but I guess it's innofensive., That is few people can be bothered to rate it. L

Worst =/= lowest rated.

The tongue bifurcation is gross and ill-advised for someone who's still wearing braces, but well documented.

rolling a joint that'd pretty lame and to think i was almost gonna do an instructable for watching paint dry im pretty lame like that but oh well now ill never do it
