Catch A Rabbit

The LAPD, The FBI, and the CIA are all trying to prove that they are the best at apprehending criminals. The President decides to give them a test. He releases a rabbit into a forest and each of them has to catch it. The CIA goes in. They place animal informants throughout the forest. They question all plant and mineral witnesses. After three months of extensive investigations they conclude that rabbits do not exist. The FBI goes in. After two weeks with no leads they burn the forest, killing everything in it, including the rabbit, and they make no apologies. The rabbit had it coming. The LAPD goes in. They come out two hours later with a badly beaten bear. The bear is yelling: "Okay! Okay! I'm a rabbit! I'm a rabbit!"

Catch me ups

Aight guys, so It's been quite a long time, after all the changes to the system and that, I got fed up with having to use a dedicated browser to use instructables, or to post them, let alone simple F-in posts, as it was rather time consuming, and even at that, still flaky. So I thought I'd see if it was working on safari again.. So what exactly have I missed? It's got to have been MONTHS. Where's Lemonie, Westfw, trebuchet, vegas, what have you guys been doing all this time?? I'm surprised I actually managed to name you guys off the top of my head.

Catch a Christmas Present.

From my inbox this afternoon: GEMINID METEOR SHOWER: This weekend, Earth will pass through a stream of debris from extinct comet 3200 Phaethon, source of the annual Geminid meteor shower. Forecasters expect more than 100 meteors per hour to fly out of the constellation Gemini when the shower peaks on Dec. 13th and 14th. For most observers, the best time to look will be from 10 pm local time on Sunday night to dawn on Monday morning. Visit http://spaceweather.com for photos, a sky map, and live audio from a meteor radar. Sounds like a chance to arrange a unique Christmas gift for a loved one. Update: I've done a bit more reading about the Geminids, and they may not be suitable for collection by magnets.  It seems they are the rocky remains of a dead comet, so lack metallic iron. However, I have added a map so you can work out where to look.

Simple fishing lures? Answered

Back in the day my grandfather use to make all sorts of artificial lures for us.From a simple spoon like thingy over spinners all the way to massive 300g killers to catch cod in the sea.And we always got our fair share of fish with them.These days everything is fancy, full of glitter and sometimes even with bluetooth and flashing lights.Are there any websites that show how to make the traditional ones yourself?I know how to make my own flies and have enough ideas for the rest but there must simpler ways then what comes to my mind..We even used wooden sticks with some aluminium foil around it and a small piece of lead for added weight to catch trout and redfin...

Capturing thin parts in 123D Catch

I'm new to the 123D world and have a question about capturing thin items like handgun grip panels. Is it better to lay something thin down flat or would it be better to somehow stand it either on edge or on the bottom? I want to try to print some new panels and plan to start with the capture program. Thanks, Curt

clean way to catch flies in the house

Hi i hope this is the right place;  I just found a somewhat clean way to get rid of flies in the house, spray them with spray starch (for ironing clothes) and they will slow down so they can be caught and put outside, or use paper to pick up and remove them. I had spray starch in the kitchen and the weather changed here, its humid and suddenly there are flies in the house.  i dont like to swat them and leave that to clean up;  by chance i used the starch, it took some effort to target them but it worked.  i did this last nite, today the 2 i sprayed apparently shook it off were not hurt, so anyone who wouldnt want to hurt a fly could spray them with starch, put them out and there is no  mess to clean and nature can do what nature does.

How to compete with neighbors' lush lawns and catch toads?

I am in the process of attracting and catching a toad for an Instructable. There's a few problems with that, but none so big as this: Toads like moist environments. It's a fact. My yard - dry as the Sahara. Well, maybe not that dry, but compared to my neighbors' lawns, it is. My neighbors have nearly constant sprinklers, pools, buckets of water (or as I like to call them, mosquito farms), and always-on exterior lights. In case you don't know, that's nearly heaven for a toad/frog. I go out at twilight/dark to find a toad, and I hear them everywhere - except in my yard. I'd go get one from my neighbor's lawn, but that'd be trespassing, and for a dumb reason. Do any of y'all know of a way that I could turn the toads' attention from my neighbors' lawns to mine? I can't do anything major, like building a pond, but any little things to bring them closer to my home would be good. Thanks, and if I can get a toad, expect to see an iBle coming from me! (Note: substitute frog for toad if you want - it's just that toads are more terrestrial and would in theory be easier to catch.)

Is this a Hoodle? Answered

  A while ago I bought a cheap extending leg table which was made in China.  The rather entertaining instructions included the line "Propel the inner rod towards the outer tube until the hoodle locates the orifice."  It will always be the 'hoodle table' to us now, but if not a hoodle, what is the correct name for that type of spring catch.

Netting circle - The crafting and DIY crazes are catching on with websites such as Etsy and Instructables

Instructables and Etsy appear in the OttawaSun article Netting Circle.If you're into creating, but you're not into domestic arts, try Instructables.com. This subversive site bills itself as "the world's biggest show and tell." Anyone can contribute how-tos and get feedback.The postings are slightly unusual, sometimes even extreme, such as how to build a cheap still to make moonshine, turn a shotgun shell into a USB stick case or make shoelaces from tape.The projects for extreme DIYers are uploaded by users who offer step-by-step guidelines along with photos. "It's a reaction against a mass-produced culture," says founder Eric Wilhelm in the Telegraph.Sounds quite similar to the 18th and 19th century backlash against the advent of mass production which created the arts and crafts movement in the first place.Wilhelm started an earlier version of the site several years ago while a starving student seeking advice on how to make equipment to cheaply support his kite-surfing hobby. More news and press about Instructables here.

new blinds flapping in wind

I purchased a horizontal blind for my (single) sliding glass door (SGD) which was a mistake. I should've bought a vertical blind since whenever I open the SGD a bit the wind catches the blind like a sail and it makes a racket when it smacks against the frame. Obviously a vertical blind could've been opened a bit more than the SGD so the wind would not catch it. Any thoughts on how to remedy my problem would be appreciated! Dan

I want to build a 7 propellor whirligig, but theres one catch. Each propeller sopins in the opposite direction from the one before it.Simple enough, Except for one catch. I want all of the propellers to be conected to a central shaft. I think I've figured a way to do it , but it may not be the most efficient way. If you don't have an idea for how to get it done, here is another question.The way I've figured, the propellors "float" abover the gears, but that way they will fall off. Any ideas for securing the propellors for minimum friction?

The reason is I would like to make multiple replicates of a base circuitry and connect them to each other, two by two. The catch (what i think would be the catch) is to power up the second one using the first one.

Web Collaboration, of Sorts

No, not the World Wide Web--colonies of spiders that build giant communal webs to catch their prey. However, there is an interesting twist: spiders maximize their food supply per spider if the colony includes 500 spiders; more than that, and each spider gets less.As the number of occupants grows, the volume of the webs they construct increases - but the surface-area-to-volume ratio declines. The area of web is the all-important determinant of numbers of prey caught, so bigger colonies catch proportionally fewer prey items.Reminds me of Dunbar's Number, the theory that says that groups of larger than approximately 150 people are no longer optimal because humans cannot effectively have and maintain that many social relationships.Spider Webs Article
