I was looking at the Uncyclopedia article called ''Weapons that don't exist, but should''. I was thinking if any of you guys can think of new  ones that are not in the article.It could be any thing from suicide sheep to landmines that explode into attack dogs.

Supreme Trevon!

This was from one of my friends. He wanted me to post one of his sites here because I told him quite a few people read these forums. Anyway, here's the link. It was kind of a joke he made up ( he's a bit odd) and he carried it on and made a site. I've looked at it... it's weird. Let me tell you again I did not make this site. He did. The only good thing about it would be the forums...

I have a question, how come every time it says a contests ends, for example "wear it contest, judging ends Oct 28, 2014"   You guys never actually show the winners until much later? Its Oct 31 and still no sign. I really want to see if the instructable I voted for won! Is my computer just late to get the results or does it take a long time to show the winners? No offense but you guys really should follow your deadlines better. (Please don't think im rude, Im really just wondering why its delayed so much) Anyway, Thanks for listening to my feedback

You dont need a small wheel pully

If you are planning on making a knex car, and you dont have enough small pully things(the ones found in small tires). You can just jam a white connector into the black tire part of the wheel. It fits great.

Why dont wall transformers have holes?

When i was making my homebrew hot wire for foam cutting, i noticed my 17V low amp transformer ((wall-mount) was getting really hot. So I question to my self, why the heck don't these things have holes? Would it be safe to get a project box from radioshack, Cut out the transformer, and if i want install a fan to keep it cool? or does dust wreck it? Also, theres no way to do hotwires and keep the transformers down right.. i mean its basically a short circuit, as why you try to make the wire hot to cut foam...

why dont I have a Partition table? Answered

OK so a week or so ago I decided to give ubuntu 10.04 lucid lynx a spin, just to see how it runs.  I've installed linux before, both with wubi and off of a disc, but this time I ran into a problem, I have no partition table : This is a HUGE problem for me because I need windows, and with no partition table ubuntu dosnt know I have windows, if it did I could install them using the "install side by side" option, but i can't.  I have even reinstalled windows and i still have no partition table.  Its not incredibly imprtant that this works but I really want to dual boot linux.  I'm in a love-hate relationship with linux; I like the idea but usually uninstall after a little while of using it :P.  I dont want to re install windows again, so does anyone know how I can set up a partition table?  If it hepls my computer's specifications are: 1.7Ghz Intel celeron 256 mb Intel GMA X3100 graphics card 128GB SSD 1GB ram 32bit Windows 7 professional

dont know which gun to get? (airsoft guns that is)

So your beginning airsoft but you dont know which gun to get? i had the same question and i got a crossman stinger p9 (in black) for 24 bucks at dicks sporting goods it came with 500 bbs and a holster. its easy to use accurate and the best part about it is the way it loads, you fill the 90bb reserve in back of mag, pull down the slider thing turn it over and gravity loads it in 10 sec so you can get back in the game before your buddies.if you have a gun you think is better let us know wikipedia has great info on arisoft in general update 2/22/08WHen you want a gun you can use in actual airsofting but dont want to spend $150+ get a $80 crossman pulse r72 i got one and its has great rate of fire and accuracy

Best Oodammo Pistol Nominations *read or dont' reply*

Alright so I wanted to settle this very simply. Our good buddy Knex lover is willing to build quite a few oodammo pistols, test them personally, and then do a quick, short review of all of them. The process is simple. The MeZak is pretty much a given so I'm going to just put that on the list right away. The next few guns will be chosen by you, the knexers. Nominate any oodammo pistol you wish as long as you give a fair reason for why. You may choose a couple if you wish. Anyone who nominates their own weapon must also pick another as well. They do not have to be posted yet as long as they will be eventually. 3 nominations are required to get on the list. The 5 with the most nominations will be selected. 1. MeZak 2. TBOS (5) 3. OodAst 3.6 (3) 4. Jamoodassault (3) 5. EAP (3)

i realy need this part dont know where to look! Answered

To make it less vague lets start at the beginning. i was looking around for a affordable night vision. after a long time searching i found nothing under a 100 dollars. but i started to understand how it works. the IR can be seen on camera. and now it comes : (with bad english) on a camera (usualy the old ones) there is this "looking hole" where you put your eye on. there is a little screen in there that is watchable from very small distance. i gues that part alone is just a tiny part no bigger then a square inch if i took that part and the real "eye" of the camera, so you see directly what the camera sees without recording or any other useless parts and mount some IR LED's on there you have nightvision! are these parts available ? here's my idea in paint. and most inportant is it affordable ?
