Nutty, wild, possibly illegal but bold idea: TV channel change prank

Materials: High output IR light/beacon Power source Cable tv remote or equivalent code sender High altitude urban viewpoint Stealth attire The basic scheme is to send out a high output IR signal from this beacon to cable boxes to switch channels .  The signal would be bright enough to reflect into any facing windows and reach the cable box IR receiver. It might hopefully affect tv's within a radius of a mile? Or more! If performed at a certain appointed time, say, at the beginning of the Super Bowl, to tune in to, say, the History Channel, it's possible the effect will show up in the Neilson ratings as a momentary blip, before annoyed football fans switch their tv's back. Guerrilla social mischief. If successful. Thanks.

DIY Batman Tumbler is Ultimate Fan Creation

The new Batman movies are so awesome that this fan decided to make his own version of the Tumbler, Batman's burly ride. The final cost is around $50k-$70k and an undoubtedly insane amount of time devoted to research, design, and fabrication. Oh, and he made a kickass Batsuit as well. Nutty. Link

Why is my female rabbit going after my other 3 females rabbits they have been together for a year and she just started?

Chippy (one of the 4 females) has been going after the other 3 when around them. so now she is sepperted from them. they all live outside in a large hutch with an upstairs and down stairs(there is a door you can shut to keep them from going up stairs or down stairs so they can be seprate). chippy is now up stairs at night and down stairs during the day and gets an hour to run everyday while they other 3 are inside their hutch(there is a 6 foot run ). The 4 of them have been together for a year, since winter has started moving in, Chippy has been going after the other three by putting his head under their butt and biting them so they go away, or is it to show dominance? Today i let him sit with Cocoa (our lop ear) and he was cleaning her ears and sitting with her on top of their hutch just with her and had made Nutty (one of the other 3 rabits) go away. chippy hopped down to the run and cocoa followed and then i noticed his ear was startn to bug him a little and he made her go away (with the bighting there bottom thing). he seems to tollerate cocoa Way mor then the other 2. when ever alice (1 of the 4 chippy used to have a big bond with) comes within a foot of chippy, chippy pounced at her and alice ran off.  I think it's dominance, will getting her spayed fix this? I worry if chippy will be warm enough threw the Whole winter by herself...(i put warm blankets in both halves of the hutch each night for them to use and on the openings in the hutch thats made for sun to go threw we have covered so its not So cold at night) Advice? please

How can I create a PPM-generating device whose output can be recorded as audio?

Dear Community,          In the late 80s and early 90s, the whole Teddy Ruxpin craze took off, and there were many spin-offs on this.  The basic idea was that the toy had a cassette player where one channel was directed to an audio circuit in the usual way, and the other channel had animation synchronization code directed to some sort of receiving circuit which controlled motors to make the mouth and eyes move so it would appear to be telling a story or singing a song.  My favorite instance of this (which I had as a child), is the Ideal Big Bird Storymagic based on the famous Sesame Street character.  There were so-called "satellite toys", Cookie Monster and Oscar which connected to Big Bird via a special patch cord, and they talked along and helped Big Bird tell the story.  I never had those though.  Different fans tell me that the animation sync code is Pulse-position modulation, the same code used over radio waves to guide remote controlled cars and helicopters.  I'm not sure if this is true or not.  I've looked at it in a waveform editor, and there appears to be some amplitude modulation going on here too.  (Please see below).  The highlighted (white) section is the span of two words.  The right (lower) channel shows the voice speaking these two words, and the left (upper) channel shows what happens to the code (which really sounds like a fax machine) as he moves his jaw down, up, and down again in time with the words.  Is this PPM, and if not, what is it? Now that I'm in my mid 20s, and I work with young children, I found one of these Ideal Big Birds on Ebay in great working order.   I'm wondering if it's possible to try to re-create what the manufacturers used to create this sync code in the first place.  Sesame Street created many nice "regular" story / music tapes with Big Bird as the central character.  I thought it might be cool to take some of these (especially the Follow That Bird soundtrack) and add the sync to make my own sort of unofficial storymagic tape (just for fun, and for my students, not to sel or share, as this would be a copyright issue).      I'm wondering if some sort of 1KHz oscillator-like device could be built that has levers of some kind, which could be routed through a DAW or a mixer, which would allow one to perform along with a program, and place the appropriate modulation envelopes into the stream of PPM to place the movements?  I think there are at least two kinds of modulation in the code; that for the beak, and for the eyes.  There must be other kinds of modulation for Cookie Monster and for Oscar.  If something like this seems practical and feasible, I'd enjoy learning about it, just for the fun of it.  If it is possible, I am also wondering how or where I could have it built, and for what sort of budget, as I am far better with my ears than with the soldering iron.  I have tried and tried, to no avail, to find someone in the “talking toys” community who knows how this was originally created.  Let me know if you'd like me to send you a clip of the audio file.  Here's a link to someone else's on Youtube so that you can see what I'm talking about.  Thank you so much for taking the time to read all of this senseless ramble!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxCnmao8FAs Thanks a ton for any insights that you have!!!  I apologize in advance for the inherent nutty-ness of this post! ;)  Sincerely, Jessica

How NOT to be a NOOB!

After looking around, I have decided to make a Mini-Instructable (Therefore Forum Topic) about how to not be a noob. This will be targeted for Instructables, but most goes on any site. It is also partly targeted on knexers. Step one, The name.Well, a lot goes by what your name is, don't say something like I_Love_Knex_Guns, choose something like Dsman, TheDunkis, Kiteman,Adrian Monk, Goodhart, Dj Radio, Jollex or The Jamalam. Also, try to use one that you use on other Websites, like Mepain, Kiteman or DutchJStep Two, the profile pic, Well, most people hate people who don't even change their display pic, so try to AT LEAST change it a bit. Some people actually use photoshop, like Dsman, or go even further and get one specially crafted by a true master ( IE Oblivitus) Try to get something that reflects either your name, or your interests.Step Three, ActivityWell, posting some Comments is Vital, and the whole point of Intructables is Instructables is just that, Post some Ibles! Don't be all nutty saying "This is my first Instructable, So be nice!'Forum topics are also quite important.Step four, Grammar Grammar is not a NOOB issue, but a lot more people will like you, and try to help improve it that way. Also, there is a Spell check button RIGHT beside the buttons near the Post sign, so USE IT!Step five, Activity Part two ( Bonus Points)Some things that are help you get more popular is greeting new people with nice warm welcomes. Jollex has done this quite often, with a personally Knex-related greeting, as have many other people. Another thing people do is search "knex" and the go to recent, and post something nice on all the new ibles (Block triggers and Et Cetrea Exempt)Example of a great welcome.Welcome!I noticed you'd joined the site, and also that you seem to be a K'NEX fan.That's brilliant!We have a lot of keen K'NEXers here, and we're quite a busy community on the site. Can I ask you to remember a few things, though? We are keen to show off K'NEX in its best light here, so please read these points carefully:(if you don't you run the risk of being labeled as a "noob")Pictures.One of the keys to a good Instructable is good photography. Please, don't use photos where the important bits are too small to see, or out of focus. Use good lighting and the macro mode of your camera. If you do not have macro, make sure things are in focus, then use an image editor to crop off the bits you don't need. Even Paint will do this.Text.This site is used by people all over the world. Lots of them don't speak English as their first language, and use translation websites to read your work. Please, do your best to use proper spelling and grammar, and avoid things like "u", and "r".GunsNow, as K'NEX gunners, we are dedicated to innovation. Innovative guns are what the K'NEXers what to see. But don't limit your self to guns, as some K'NEXers are annoyed by all the guns. And, please, no more little 12 piece guns.More!You know K'NEX is about more than guns, and so do I, so let's see your other projects - have you designed a clever robot arm? A new vehicle? A ball-sorter? Show us!Again, welcome to the site, and to the K'NEX community, and thank you for taking the time to read these hints. For more info click here.>Your name here<Well thanks, and I don't really think this needs a Whole ible, but If anyone wants to collaborate one, PM Me.
