Does anyone have the best way to connect cans, like the ones pineapple come in? I am a high school art teacher and the art one classes make it their mission to destroy whatever they can. They don't care what it takes to mess things up, no matter how hard you try to make things look nice. I've restricted them to their seat because otherwise they try to meander around the room. It's very frustrating. So, if they can't get up, they must have their supplies at hand. The cans have a slight lip, so they aren't flush against each other. I just plan on painting them black and grouping them in fours. Honestly, I would still like them to look decent. Any ideas?

Fresh garlic was put in a clean jar, boiling malt-vinegar and sugar was poured over and the jar sealed. Some garlic turned blue-green and floated, some did not and sank. I don't understand this. It did the same a second time. L

Had a fine can of cod liver in its own oil. Found it to be quite nice and mild in taste and in texture. I spread it on crackers but it made me wonder if there were any other good ways of making snacks and or other foods using the liver. Does any one else know of other ways to use the cod liver and the oil? Thanks.

By canned food cans, I don't mean soda cans, I mean the cans that pineapple and corn and other stuff come in, just to be clear. From what I know, it's probably not aluminum because it is magnetic. So what metal is it? Is it combined with different metals?

Halo is an LED spraypaint can by French designer Aissa Logerot.The LED light changes colors and brightness and is powered by an internal battery that can be charged by shaking of the can. "It is possible to change the color and the brightness of the led to change the graffiti's styles. If the light doesn't have enough battery, the user must shake it to have energy again."Built on the same principle as LED Light Drawing Pens but with a cool sray can apperancevia Geekologie

And it is as the 'ible was when I first published it. Is there any way of updating it without unpublishing it, so I can stop looking like a newb?

Hi, I am a beginner and I created an account a couple of days before, there are few basic things I would like to know. Kindly bear with me if they feel silly, please guide. I would like to know : Can I post a link in my instructable for the readers which could direct them to popular website like Wikipedia or GitHub (One of the Largest Open Source Community) or someone's personal blogspot for gaining more information on a topic? Can I post a link for download of a free software for readers related to the project I made instructable on? for example a free software to help readers calculate LED resistance? I would highly appreciate guidance, suggestions. Thanks AMK

As my depression era ancestors would say, those plastic containers that coffee comes in are "just too good to throw away." Other than the obvious uses as a bailing bucket or a scoop, does anybody have a really inventive application? Maybe this could be an "ible" contest.

Hi, I'm new here. I had added some text to one of my instructables, along with another rendering image. I published the updates yesterday but could not see the updates today after logout. I use Chrome, and cache is cleared. Guess this is a bug ?

Remember I "mentioned" my CafePress shop? Following comments on that announcement, and thanks to the personal generosity of Gmjhowe (who created the latest incarnation of my usual avatar), you can now buy me! There is a ridiculously wide range of items, from jewellery to Christmas stockings, as well as the usual range of tee shirts, stickers, pin badges etc, all featuring yours truly. OK, so it's a vanity thing, but I've got to say they look quite good... (As ever, if there's a product you would like to see, even if it's just a tweak of an existing product, then let me know by a comment here or by PM.)
