Recently, I saw someone use a variation the phrase "You have no right to say that". Location and who said that are not important. Anyways, my bull detector went off, so I just decided to post this topic. For all the people who have used this phrase before, guess what? They still said it. The receivers of this skewered phrase obviously don't care if they don't have the right to say it, which brings me to this train of thought: Why do we call it a "Right"? Most times people say it as if it was not a legal right at all, but matter of fact is, that most conversation on the internet is not really anything to involve cops or authorities in (Well, at least the conversations with the phrase I mentioned above), so why are we treating this as something straight out of the constitution or bill of rights or whatever? Offtopic: I kept the poster of the comment and the location of the comment anonymous for a reason. It would be smart for him/her to not blow it with a poorly written comment. Why I posted this topic: There have been a bunch of phrases on the internet (some offensive with cuss words and whatnot) that don't make sense when you go by their definition, and I felt like ruining one of them.

I'm doing a little informal research to find the best deal in neodymium magnets. The price per cubic inch seems to be extremely variable- some on the order of $10 and others in the hundreds of dollars. Can you find a better deal than I did? Conditions on the order of NdFeB magnets: * Total price, including shipping to the US, under $30 * Contains at least four magnets with intact coating * Contains a total of at least 6 cubic inches (98322mm^3) of magnet The best I could come up with is $4.93 per cubic inch. Can you find a better unit price?

Guys, if you see spam, anywhere on the site, please do not reply to it, even if you are just saying "spam". Adding comments actually slows down the removal of the spam, so just flag it and move on. If it is really offensive spam, or it needs quickly removing for some other reason, then email email@example.com, or send a PM to any members of the staff or the Community Team who seem to be online at the time. If you're running on UK/Europe times, that will likely be me.

Hello there all, As you might be aware, us here in the UK are having a fair amount of snow, which as you might also be aware, causes our country to slowly collapse... Since those of you who live in Canada and northern states of the USA are quite a bit more used to the snow, I wondered if the collective genius of Instructables could give us some tips on dealing with snow...

"A Florida county plans to build a facility to get rid of their landfills, generate electricity and produce construction material, all using a process called plasma gasification which vaporizes garbage at temperatures hotter than the surface of the sun. The $425 million facility expected to be built in St. Lucie County will use plasma arcs to turn garbage into gas and rock-like material. It will be the first municipal plasma waste processing facility in the united states, and the largest in the world. Expected to be completed within 2 years, the 100,000 square food facility will process 3,000 tons of waste per day. Fed not only with waste being produced currently, the facility will also begin to process the waste already in the county landfill. Estimates predict that the entire volume of the existing landfill, 4.3 million tons of trash collected since 1978, will be processed within 18 years."Read More...It almost seems too good to be true, what do you think?

I've been thinking about this as right now the goddamn drunk that came to the door a few hours ago is still rapping on the door, he's a special example because he's caught in this loop, he came asking for someone called steve and wasn't a problem, I sent him on his merry way and he came back in half an hour, oblivious to the fact that we'd had that conversation, he was however agressive this time, he tried to push his way in to the house and got a good smack to the jaw, door closed. He then came back again, in a friendly mood and started the conversation again, I'm now ignoring him - usually they take the hint the first time... Anyway I was wondering if anybody would like to collaborate on an 'ible about dealing with them, see I've had a variety of random interactions with drunks, from where I used to work to random happenings and down and the local, I'd probably be able to persuade my friend who's a barman to add some wisdom, and maybe my mate the security guard who is bored anyway... Anybody interested? If I've missed a life changing and amazing 'ible on such things then it may not be needed but haven't seen one on this subject anyway...

Well I'm looking around but I really don't have the time or the patience to continue. I have homework to get to so I'm hoping you guys can find me some good deals on K'nex. I'm looking for something that -Is no more than $60 or so. I really don't feel like spending a lot. I don't plan on starting up a huge stockpile. I simply want enough to build practical weapons and maybe two smaller weapons at time. -Contains some black/clear rods. I only have one clear rod. I had another but I lost it. -Has some exotics. I don't care if I only get like 2 of each but I'd love some more hinges and ball joints. Some more black Ys wouldn't hurt either. Small wheels would be a nice addition but I don't require them. Some blue caps would also be lovely. Small bendies are nice too. -Obviously I'd like a nice mix of normal pieces. Green and white rods, and yellow connectors are my main concern though. I could use more of everything but those three are probably the most used in the majority of weapons. They're usually the only pieces I run out of. Metallics would be nice though I don't care what colors they are -Finally, I don't want bricks or minis. Almost every set in town is half bricks and/or minis and I don't feel like paying extra for those. If some are included, fine as long as I get a what would be a good deal without them. If I finally get some more pieces, I'll be able to build guns made by others and start some new projects. I've been looking forward to reviewing guns in a strict manner.

Okay, it's a serious - sometimes very literally dead serious - issue, and we should all be aware of the risks and precautions.But for the love of Pete - you can't swing a cat around here without someone putting a pink Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon around its neck. And I just got a letter from my doctor reminding me to schedule a mammogram: no one in my family has ever had breast cancer. My grandfather died of bone cancer at age 69, but no one's ever suggested I should have a bone scan. My aunt died of lung cancer last year, but I can't remember the last time I had a chest x-ray. My mother very nearly died of a Degree 4 Melanoma (10-15% prognosis for survival) in her early 50's, but no one wants to pay for a dermatologist to survey all my moles once a year. My father had a brain tumor the size of a softball - it very fortunately turned out to be benign - removed in his late 50's, but no one has ever suggested I should have a brain scan (okay, that one I get - it would seem apparent that there's nothing there :).So what's the great big hurking deal about my boobs? I wouldn't want to have to, but I could live without 'em - a lot easier than I could live without my bones, lungs, skin or brains.Prostate cancer seems to be just as serious a risk for men of a certain age as breast cancer is for women, but there's no Prostate Cancer Awareness Month - is that because of what color the ribbon would have to be?

Their targets are usually the new kids, like me and my friend, Danny I know it's just best to just ignore them, don't sink to their level and all that, but when they made my friend cry in more then one occasion, that's going too far. Their jokes are mostly sexual and racist, calling me and Danny gay just for being friends, saying that I have a vagina, and even going so far as to say he f'ed my mother. And his racist jokes are usually aimed at Danny, due to him coming from Czech Republic. I need help, and fast.

I had an idea to re-use the trunks of Christmas trees my neighbors are throwing away. I sawed off the thick part of the trunk and removed the branches from it. But now I have lots of oozy sap that makes the wood sticky and unpleasant. Any suggestions on what to do? If I stain it or coat in polyurethane will that prevent more sap from oozing out? Ideally i want to slice one trunk into coasters/trivets, keeping the exterior bark intact. The other trunk might become the base for a side table or something similar. Or maybe I'll just hollow it out like a cup and use it as a pencil holder. Thanks for your help! Josh

http://www.slideserve.com/chelogaard/bp-holdings-bp-styrelsen-godk-nner-rosneft-deal bp holdings Moskva – BP: s styrelse har godkänt ett erbjudande från det ryska statliga oljebolaget Rosneft, köper de flesta av BP: s verksamhet i Ryssland för kontanter och aktier i Rosneft, ytterligare konsolidera Rysslands kontroll av dess oljeindustrin, en verkställande med kunskap om beslutet sade. Enligt villkoren i affären, BP skulle förbli i Ryssland men — ursprungligen minst — endast som en minoritetsägare i ett oljebolag som kontrolleras av President Vladimir V. Putin regering. Senare hoppas BP att använda denna nya strategiska slips med Kreml för att trumma upp andra företag. BP hade telegraphing sin vilja att göra en del för viss tid och Rosneft lämnades formellt ett erbjudande på torsdagen att köpa ut BP: s 50 procent av ett samriskföretag som här kallas TNK-BP. Styrelsens godkännande får BP: s verkställande direktör, Robert W. Dudley, att förhandla om de slutgiltiga villkoren för BP: s försäljning av sin ryska anläggningar inom en rad av bra kombinationer av kontanter och aktier, sade den verkställande makten med kännedom om beslutet. Intervallen var 10 miljarder dollar till 14 miljarder dollar och 15-20 procent av Rosnefts aktier. BP är sannolikt att få minst en plats i styrelsen. Ett formellt tillkännagivande väntas redan i måndags. BP: s aktie steg cirka 4 procent förra veckan när det blev klart att en uppgörelse var nära förestående. För BP kommer försäljning som det största steget ännu i Mr. Dudley "krympa växa" strategi i kölvattnet av oljeutsläppet 2010 golfen. Mr. Dudley, en Mississippian, tog över mitt i denna katastrof och beslutade att BP, att överleva, sätter sin globala verksamhet på en ny fot genom att sälja äldre, mindre lönsamma områden och koncentrera sig på prospektering. BP sålt tillgångar i länder från Venezuela till Vietnam. Ryska innehav var den största som passar in på kategorin för potentiella försäljning, bestående av mestadels åldrande oljefält i Sibirien med lite potential för nya utdata. Fortfarande, de svarar för cirka 25 procent av BP: s globala produktionen, eller om så mycket olja som BP pumpar i Förenta staterna, inklusive Alaska. För den ryska industrin tar buyout av BP: s andel i TNK-BP en stor swath industrins full cirkel tillbaka till statligt ägande. Rosneft's chief executive, Igor I. Sechin, en före detta militära underrättelse officer och nära medhjälpare till Mr. Putin, är en förespråkare för större statligt ägande i oljeindustrin. TNK-BP är det tredje största ryska oljebolaget; om Rosneft köper ut både BP och handfull ryska miljardärer som styr den andra halvan av TNK-BP, Rosneft kommer att bli världens börsnoterade största oljeföretag, med en produktion på cirka 4,5 miljoner fat per dag. "Vi har sett detta anmärkningsvärt förstärkning av inverkan av Rosneft och Setjin personligen," sade John Lough, tidigare TNK-BP tjänsteman som är Ryssland specialist på Chatham House, en brittisk forskning organisation, i en intervju. "Just nu, hur det ryska systemet fungerar är genom att uppnå en fördelning av inflytande och tillgång till hyror" – eller oväntade vinster – "för att uppnå övergripande jämvikt som staten bygger," sade han.

Under Mr. Putins omval kampanj förra vintern, till exempel kunde regeringen ladle ut olja-inkomster-baserade väcker i löner i den offentliga sektorn. Många soldat löner fördubblats i januari. Förutom skatter extraherar regeringen vinster från den utdelning som flertalet statliga energiföretag Gazprom och Rosneft betala. Om Rosneft köper BP och de ryska partnerna i TNK-BP, att den federala regeringens andel av oljeindustrin stiga över 50 procent. När oljepriserna är runt $100 gör per fat, den ryska industrin och regeringen tillsammans cirka 1 miljard dollar om dagen från export av olja och naturgas. BP Holdings

Apologies if this has been asked before, but I've looked around and haven't been able to find anything dealing with the IP rights associated with the JD Independence Project contest winners. Typically Instructables contests don't run into this issue as they are dealing with already-created content and as such the IP is either available already or made available by nature of the public release of information (rendering the content ineligible for patent, at least under US IP law). With this particular contest, however, the prize is meant to preemptively fund a project, business, etc - so there's definitely the possibility of IP creation. How would Instructables/JD deal with this and what assurances do entrants have that IP generated as a result of the contest remains their own?
