Pain is a learning curve

Ok, I just made some hot chocolate, the usual 90 seconds in a microwave, narrow mug, powder and soy milk with a sprinkle of nutmeg..... drank it felt no different......but it appears that apparently it was too hot without me even realising it, and I should know because I drink hot chocolate with a spoon. My lips, roof of my mouth, gums and tounge are swelling sore and blistering. Great! Do you know what the best cure is? Whiskey, I'm sat in the living room drinking whiskey to cool the burns in my mouth, it doesnt hurt so much now but my god my lips are swelling like a mongoose fish. Who needs botocs? I have alot of food allergies too which doesn't help. Do any of you guys have food allergies and how do you cope with them, tips appreciated :)

.2g airsoft bbs curving up

I'm using .2g bbs with my UTG MK23 airsoft pistol, which I have been told are better than the .12g because they will not curve up. Yet when I shoot with the .2g bbs, they still curve way up and I have to aim below my target to hit it. Does anyone know why this might happen and/or how to fix?

Getting rid of a Coke Can's Curve?

In my quest of making use of beverage cans, I have come to one of the many points where I don't know what to do. As we all know, Coke cans are cylindrical. For this particular project of mine, I'm going to cut the top and bottom of the can off, and then slice the can vertically to create one long sheet. I need this sheet to be flat, but the curve is very resistant against my attempts to get rid of it. I've tried putting the sheet under a large dictionary and waiting a day or so, but to no avail. Does anyone know a way to fix this? Even if it isn't perfectly flat, it'd be alright. Thanks!

Tips for new Blackberry user?

Suddenly I got an overwhelming urge for a Blackberry so I went down to the local telco store and got myself a BlackBerry Curve 8310 (the one with the camera and GPS). I'm sure that there are a lot of tips&tricks to learn and good utilities / applications to download to enhance the functionality of this little neat device. Does anyone have any tips or pointer to good websites for blackberries except the official blackberry-site and handango?

Curved/Circular LED Matrix

Hey everyone,  I've been interested in making a new project using an LED display, however, I have no idea how to go about such a matrix without the proper instructions or guidelines since it is very different from a square or rectangular matrix. I was hoping someone could explain how to wire and go about making such a thing (programming advice would also be appreciated).

Any ideas on making a curved plexiglass panel with LED lighting the etching in it?

So, I want to create a 2"-3" wide strip of plexiglass that I would etch and then curve (using to heat to wrap the 2"-3" wide strip around something round, for example a pipe). My question is, if I had an LED source lighting the end of the strip (again, the narrow end) would the etched plexiglass light up all around? See picture here: Is this possible?

How much angle or curve needed for bike trailer tow-bar?

I want to make a trailer for my bike, but am confused about all the various types/styles of D.I.Y. tow-bars I see being made/ does the curve/bend of the tow-bar affect whether the trailer will track correctly behind the bike? If the trailer does not track correctly behind the bike then the tires will be ruined over time, and it will cause more 'drag' (harder to pull). I understand that the tow-bar needs to be able to clear the bike's back tire when turning, but if I put the wrong angle or curve in the tow-bar will it cause issues with keeping the trailer straight behind the bike and tracking properly?So how does someone determine the correct angle/curve of the tow-bar, besides trial and error and possibly wasted materials? Thank you for your time and assistance.

I make lamp shades out of glass pieces. I take glasses in different colors break them apart and then wire them onto frames to make the shades. I have found that hand sanding down the edges on these pieces just takes too long to do. I am contemplating getting a sander but am wondering wether the flat surface of the belt sander will work for the curved pieces of glass, or if a wheel would get into the curve better. Anyone had any experience with either method?

Project for vector calculus

Hello there, So, for my project in Vector Calculus: The suggestion is that we pick a certain "curve" within a country road. We are to log longitude, latitude and altitude while we drive this "curve" for approximately 15-20 seconds. With the data from the latitude-longitude-altitude "logger", we are to perform the various vector calculus principles we have learned in class. Instead of driving the road, I would like to attach whatever latitude-longitude-altitude logger to a boomerang, and get my curve through flight. Does anyone know which sensor I should be looking for? A bit about me: I am currently an electrical engineering technician in product development for a motor-controls company. I mostly test hardware/software, which is designed by our in-house engineers. I am very comfortable with soldering, visual inspection of PCBs, schematics, and general electrical engineering knowledge. Does anyone have a feasible idea for getting a gps unit onto a boomerang, and be ale to transmit the data to me in real-time? Thanks in advance.

I need an idea of what could be made from two curved glass deli cabinet doors.

Along with a few flat glass shelves, I was given two large curved glass deli cabinet doors as shown in the image below. They still have the aluminum bars attached to the long ends. One the top side that was formerly attached to a hinge mechanism and one being the lower side that formerly held a rubber seal. I only have the doors, as the rest of the cabinet was used for another purpose or recycled by the previous owners. I'm trying to come up with a project to repurpose them for, but I'm drawing a blank. They are about 4 feet long and 2 feet wide with no cracks.  They appear to be tempered glass and are very heavy. Here are some ideas: -  large vertical display cabinets made from wood with the glass doors on the front of them might work by using the short ends as the top and bottom. - large horizontal display cases made from wood with the glass doors as the top or front and access to the rear. - Some sort of greenhouse window. - I eventually would like to build a house out of shipping containers. Incorporating these into the plans as windows would be cool as long as I can figure out how to frame them out to give a good seal. perhaps as a skylight? (Of course, not being double paned, they wouldn't have much of an R-value). - Something artistic that can utilize the glass panes and be hung on a wall or used as a display. I have access to a Hackerspace in St. Louis, Missouri with plenty of tools and other raw materials. The pieces are so large that I'd have to work on the project and clean up each day rather than leave the project out. It's a shared space, so I don't want my stuff to be in the way of others. Any input from the Instructables community would be helpful.

Hi everyone, Tactiontape is a one-dimensional touch sensor that curves. It's designed to make building interactive physical prototypes easier, even ones with non-planar or complex surface geometry. It functions as a flexible potentiometer and uses a strip of graphite to express a linearly resistive electrical signal, one that corresponds to how far along the tape you've touched. Each sensor is hand-made using materials from an art supply store. Here's a demo: For purchasing, photos, and more detail:
