Bed hammock from the ceiling? Answered

Hey, I'm looking to add a hammock in my bonus room. I am going to use a tarp for the base and a comforter as a cover. My only question is, how can I hang a hammock you can sleep in into the ceiling or these corners?

Yes guys, I have done research on the topic and I know that it is a somewhat common practice. Im asking for peoples reviews of them, like if they are really comfortable or not, and if anyone has any recommendations for types of hammocks are good for that.

CAMPING WITH COMFORT using a peltier teg cell

It seems to me that a fridge using a peltier thermo generator would be perfectly coupled to a water heater and add considerably to camping comforts. I want to do this and have three 100W units but good advice is well worth having to start with. Has anyone done it yet and what sort of volumes /temperatures can be expected?

Help me with my school project! Take my Survey - Soldering Iron Redesign

Hi guys, I'm looking for some help on project. I've been assigned to redesign a soldering iron and research on how to make this tool better with input from users.  I am looking for first timers or beginners who have just been introduced to soldering and I'll gear my improvements towards their needs.  My primary design goal is to lessen the learning curve by addressing issues of safety and comfort.  I also hope to gain some insight into people's initial reaction to the tool and it's function if it's a completely new object for them.  I have posted a survey as part of my research and would love the input. All input is welcomed regardless of experience. Thank you for your help!  Soldering Iron Design Survey 1. What is your experience and skill level? ( None, beginner, average, expert) 2. Did you have any concerns about safety when you first used a soldering iron? 3. Did you ever burn yourself? 4. What were some problems you encountered when you first used a soldering iron? 5. Did you find the soldering iron awkward to hold because of the weight of the cable dangling out the back? 6. On a scale of 1 -5 how comfortable is it to hold and use? (5 being very comfortable). Any particular reason? 7. Would making the soldering iron more comfortable and secure to hold give you more confidence when soldering? 8. Which aspects of a soldering iron besides functionality do you consider being the most important? eg. comfort, safety etc. Thanks for your help!  Justin

K'nex Gun Review - RBLTR V.1 (Red's Breach Loading Tactical Rifle)

Hello All This is a review on 'RBLTR V.1 (Red's Breach Loading Tactical Rifle)'. The RBLTR V.1 was published on the 1st of July 2013, and is considered by red himself to be his most powerful K'nex gun he has ever built. After building the gun and seeing the internals, it uses a pin pull mech and they look very similar to the G36C mech. There are many nice features to this gun that makes it original like the comfort bar and the sights. The gun shoots yellow rods to anyone wondering. STATS Range 10/10 - The range of the gun is rather high than an average gun. I managed to get 50ft accurately and around 80- 90 ft at an angle. It it described that the gun can reach ranges up to 70ft in the original description so I think 70ft is a fair judgement. As I managed to get 80ft plus,  I think the rating is 10/10. Appearance/ Looks 8/10 - The gun at first sight looks pretty hardcore although this does not really matter, I personally liked the comfort bar and the sights. The gun has a solid build so I think around a 8/10. Internals 8/10 - The internals within the gun are rather good, although I have had a few jams so I think 8/10. Broken Pieces 9/10 - The gun does not use any broken pieces however in some places the performance of the gun will exceed if broken pieces are used. That having been said I think a 9/10. Comfort 10/10 - I admire the gun mainly for its comfort of the handle. This helps to make the gun more accurate while aiming therefore a 10/10 without a doubt. Rate of Fire 6/10 - The ROF on this gun is quite good. When reloading this gun it did not take too long but their has been a lot more quicker and so I think a 6/10. Sturdiness/Durability 8/10 - The gun is put together well as I said earlier and I find it firm. When building this and adding the comfort bar is seemed that it was weak but as I added to it, it strengthened. Although the permanent fore-grip is rather weak in my opinion and could be stronger so I think a 8/10. Overall - 59/70 - This gun overall is awesome and I would recommend to build it! Also keep in mind that this is my ratings and opinions of the gun. Be sure to check out The Red Book of Westmarch's other guns. I hope you have enjoyed the review! Thank you! Hunter999

Airplane dog carrier

I want some ideas that you may have for a carrier. background: I want to bring my Dog on an airplane but he can't ride in cargo because there is a summer ban on dogs during hot months. I must fly before the end of the ban. The airline will allow a dog in the cabin in a soft carrier, if the dog and carrier are less than 10kg. My dog is 7kg so the carrier can be up to 3kg. It must be 27cm high 40cm wide and 55 cm long or smaller problems: the foot print is fine for my dogs they could lay down comfortably, but the height is small. I want to make a telescoping carrier so it can fit under the seat on the plane, but can open up for comfort in the airport and when moving.
