The Thanksgiving contest just ended and I was wondering if there would be a December one happening. Just to give time to think up some stuff, y'know?

December beard-off!

January 2012   Sculpted! Thanks to everyone who joined in the fun and shared their real and faux beards in the comments below! It was fun to see all the different variations and everyone who posted will be sent out a pack of Sugru! Here's the results of our in-house beard-off: frenzy went for the Deron Williams fade kazmataz had the classic milk-moustache  mikeasaurus and StumpChunkman did mirrored MonkeyTail's  lamedust went all out with the technicolour rainbow Way to go everyone! December, 2011 November saw many men grow moustaches in support of prostate cancer awareness. For December a few of us at the lab are going to keep the facial fur tradition alive and attempt a beard-off! For the next few weeks we're tossing out the razors and documenting the madness! After, we'll sculpt them into weird designs and then post the results and let you decide who you think has the best/worst beard. This beard-off isn't just for the gentlemen either, the ladies of Instructables have also volunteered to participate with faux beards, knitted beards, or anything else! We're starting with how we look now, then updating later in the month with how our beards are progressing, then how they look sculpted in a ridiculous way. Here are the Instructables staff participating: Participant  | Start (December-Beginning) |   Beardy  (December-End)   |    Sculpted (January 2012)     frenzy kazmataz N/A mikeasaurus StumpChunkman lamedust X Members can join in the fun by posting pictures of their crazy beards in the comments below. Every member who posts a picture of their beard (real or fake) will be sent out a single Sugru pack and an Instructables sticker! Hurry, these things are itchy and are going to be shaved by January 2012!

Possibliy a good contest for Christmas

I would not know from my Instructables hiatus that this has been suggested before, but I have a good thought for this years Christmas. Instead of going down to your toy shop burning money on the latest toys for someone, that simply you make toys. Of course toys you make yourself have a lot more meaning than those from a store, but I think we have a really creative community here that can engineer some good toy instructables. So why not hold a contest for the best toy instructable?

How do I train for a marathon due this December 2011? Answered

Hi, i used to be active in school but that was donkey years away. So now a friend has invited me to join her for a 5 km fun-run marathon. My questions are : What diet should I plan? Should I count calories? I am a working mother so I need to plan my time carefully. If you have any suggestions on the timeframe that I should train it would be grateful. What exercise regiment should I follow? Please include a link, if possible since I always read first and follow instructions to the T. Should I time myself whenever I run? Should I train on a treadmill or run at the park? Thanks for the help and I look forward to your suggestions.

Where's The Book?

This is actually my first post in anything (forums or the actual site). You guys mention a upcoming book in the group's intro, coming out in September of 2007. Well here it is in December and no book. Has it fallen through? Are you looking for a new publisher, cause I've notice that Reaganbooks hasn't had anything new in months. Plus, I've also noticed that the forums (for HSC) haven't been updated in over a year.

Instructable Crisis! Need Part!

I’ve been working on my instructable project since the begging of December and I have successfully completed 99% of it and 80% of the instructable write-up. When I reassembled my laptop I discovered that I was missing a keyboard key! If anyone has a regular sized letter or number key for the IBM ThinkPad model please contact me. I will donate some cash via paypal and include your name as an honorable mention in my instructable! Thanks!
