Diy gift for best friend

Everyone! I have this friend who's turning 20 next week and I need some gifts ideas. I bought her a book, "The portrait of Dorian Gray", because I know she loves O. Wilde, but she's one of my best friends and I want to make something special for her. Any idea? :D Thank you in advance!

Friend of Instructables and Friend of Humanity Held in China

Long-time friend of Instructables James Powderly of GRL, FFFFFAT LAB and Throwies fame is currently reported to be held by the Chinese Government for over 24 hours without further word for planning a pro-Tibet LASER Tag event in Beijing. "James is proud to have been kicked out of the Synthetic Times new media art exhibition in Beijing because he wouldn't censor his little art project. James wonders why organizations like the MoMA, Parsons, Eyebeam, Ars Electronica and many other arts and cultural institutions around the world who claim to support free speech and expression would participate in a show like this. But they did! It was after being kicked to the curb by the show's curator that James connected with Students for a Free Tibet and decided he would go to China anyway and do what he though was right in support of Tibet, Taiwan, free speech and the people of China. James lives, if indeed he is alive, in the County of Kings, Brooklyn, and teaches at the Communication Design and Technology program at Parsons the New School for Design. I am James Powderly and I approve of this message."We wish the best to him and his family.This via Boing Boing.

Fallen out With a Friend

I am very angry and kind of depressed now.....I have fallen out with a friend, and i am pissed off.( this is at dinnertime - on the school playground BTW)It all started when i called him ( stuart) something ( daddy's little wh*re) as a joke. I always tease him and he just puches me , and then we carry on as normal. But i realised i went too far then, ( it was un-intentional; like a spur of the moment how i always tease him). I aploigised twice then, but then he chased me - he is very fast and this time he had a very angry look on his face! I quickly ran in a cicle and then ran straight outa the school gates for dinner- to avoid beatings.When i returned to school on the same day, I tried to avoid him incase i get hit, but i couldn't since my best friend hangs out with him, and i wanted to talk to him. So when walked up i imediatly got chased off ( but i was able to say sorry twice again). So next break i walked up again, But i got pushed, then kicked very hard on my arse by stuart. Then i got chased again and got puched twice. I decide to avoid him and ,my other friend totally for the remaining lessons.(TODAY), I normally walk with him too school and back form school. So when morning came, i got ready and left the house. I spotted him ( stuart) behind me and decided to carry on walking - too see what he would do..... Once he caught up he walked off! ahead leaving me behind! ( I thought the guy would off cooled down by now). Once i caught up with him i said:" hello. Are you still in a mood with me?"Stuart: " fuck off , i don't wanna walk with you, so get lost"Me: " why man? please, i said sorry lots of times...come on!"stuart : " Fuck off "I just realised he was angry and then just carried on walking to school away from him. I avoided him for most of the day, until maths finished:I was walking with another friend on the playground, then i saw stuart with his 2 friends ( one of them is also my friend) walking the opposit direction towards me.:When we were pararllel he got out his hand and pushed me really hard!me: " what the fuck did you do that for? I didnt do nothin' to you! "He smirked, and then walked off saying nothing.I am really angry and depressed now. I didnt go back after dinnertime today. Cause I am that down.. :-(Ive said sorry countless of times and ment it but he wouldn't listen. He just gets ready to hit me.I can't even hang out with my other friends because half of my friends ( he hangs out with). So im worried if i go up to them he might start a fight wich i don't wanna do. He is the tallest in year 9 twice the size of me, and pretty big. ( i know it would be a un fair fight ida get beaten). And now i havn't got anyone to walk to school with , which sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know what to do?!?!?Personally i think he's acting childish. Ive apoligised lots and he won't listen. Thank you for reading this extreamally long post!!! Please Help with sensible advice.

Must be logged in to email an Instructable to a friend

For some time, we've allowed anyone, site member or not, to email an Instructable to a friend or two simply by entering the friend's email address and clicking a couple buttons.  On Sunday, against our terms of service (see link in the footer), someone ran a script that hacked this feature to send out mass emails to a very large number of people.  And the emails looked like they came from us.  Not good!  I hate to say it, but someone used Instructables to send out spam. So, yesterday I updated the site to prevent this from happening again.  I changed it so you could only use this feature if you were logged in.  We're thinking about different ways to handle it, to still allow people who don't have an Instructables membership to share Instructables with friends, but limit it in some way to prevent anyone from sending spam again.  Once we've decided on the best long-term fix, we'll implement it and I'll post about it here.

The best way to destroy a treehouse?

Ok, basically, these guys claimed to have part-built our treehouse. We are 100% certain that they didn't, our neighbour helpfully pointed a cctv camera at it, and has been there since it's initial frame construction. Now, they won't let us in our tree house... they've padlocked it... It's on private land, our neighbours who likes us (me and mates, he doesn't mind us there...) Our parents have spoken to theirs, and they said to our parents that they don't give a sh** about our treeshack. It is between our three yards, mine (counts as me + friends), neighbour (owner), gits who took it over... The only way to end this, as we have thought, is to end it. We want to get it gone quickly, so as not to attract attention while we're there. We have a garage full of airsoft pyrotechnics and fireworks. Our neighbour doesn't mind us there with pyro's either... Our plan: Pop smoke all around perimiter, especially near camera so as to frame them.... fill a cardboard box with fireforks (roman candles and rockets) and fill with cotton wool... Light 1 via fuse leaning out of box. It's a 10 sec fuse, so we can jump from ladder and run... BOOM. Turn up 3 mins later to hopefully see the 'owners' and be like "what the hell did you do??" There are MANY problems with this... 1) tree damage 2)shrapnel 3)police / fire service attention 4)parents 0_o 5)them killing us (not literally...) WE WANT TO KNOW: Is this theasable? should we just saw it in half? How can we get rid of it?? Thanks for anything, and don't call us terrorists :p

Wood Steaming and The Tubench: DIY Videos at their best.

It all started when I was on the internet, as usual, and began to search for ways to bend wood cheaply. I had heard of people doing it with just a copper pipe and a blowtorch, but I wanted some affirmation from the interweb before I inadvertently set by garage ablaze. Now, I don't know about you, but when I want to know how to get something done, I head to Youtube first. I'm not sure why, but I find how-to videos to be a much better starting point for a project than reading long, picture-less descriptions on someone's website, although it's probably just because I end up wasting extra time.A search for wood steaming and bending yielded this video of a man in Belgium who turned his backyard into a steam-run hell, or playground, depending on your perception of safety versus fun. I was blown away (perhaps literally) by this video. With the combination of wild 8-bit techno beats, precariously assembled and potentially deadly equipment, and a project of such a scale that even a music-video director would be envious, you have yourself one of the most incredible DIY videos I've ever seen. I watched it probably five times before I stumbled upon another video by the same guys. Despite high expectations, I could have never been prepared for The Tubench. Just when you thought these guys couldn't get any more insane, they give you this. They gave you the Tubench. If you thought building a bench was boring or at all a passive activity, you were wrong. Or, at least you were before you realized building a bench out of tubes requires speeding dangerously through parking lots, building it a surfboard, attaching it to your car like an antenna, and SAVAGLEY BEATING IT WITH EVERY SINGLE IMPROVISED BENCH-TORTURE DEVICE YOU HAVE... to ensure structural integrity, of course. Apparently, these things are actually available for order by emailing DIETRICHBONNE@hotmail.com. Well, I still have no idea who these guys are, or what possesses them to make such epic videos, but if they haven't been invited to Instructables already, someone needs to draft them in! Keep up the good work, my Belgian friends.Happy Hacking~Skyfinity
