How about the hand in the bowl of warm water trick? Something else? Something WORSE? Don't worry, and don't get mad............get even! This is THE place to scheme about how to get those pranksters back! Mines, tripwires, water balloons, lasers (to pop black water balloons of course), water sniper rifles, pimped out go karts (mounted with water balloon cannons), you name it! If it's a prank, and it soaks to the bone, it should be disscussed here! Soon, we'll make them wet and sorry they messed with you! (If they get you back, evaluate the prank, and read this paragraph again!)

Finding that with both Chrome and Firefox: 1. go to any Instructable 2. look at "related" 3. click "see more" 4. I get the same page with five more related 5. this is normal and desireable 1. go to any Instructable 2. click "download" 3. look at "related" 4. click "see more" 5. I get a new page of "everything" instead of the same page with five more related; the address of the new page seems always to be: https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/?q= 6. this started for me a week or so ago and seems very consistent (at least for me); would appreciate if someone would look at this 7. maybe this is happening to others?

### Chemcial Question for Taxidermy Related Project

I am quite interested in the articulation of the bones of animals. I plan on using small game (squirrels, frogs) to begin with, and I will probably donate them to my Biology teacher, since she loves skeletons.The process of defleshing and whitening the bones of the animal is fairly straight forward - soak the carcass/skeleton in chemical baths and take it out when it's done. The chemicals needed for the process are what's going to be hard for me to obtain.I need a 0.3% solution of sodium carbonate. Sodium bicarb is extremely easy to come by, but I've never seen sodium carbonate. I've heard it is used to raise the pH in pools, so I'm guessing a pool store would carry it. But, would it be possible (practical) to make it? Is there a way, using household chemicals, to produce sodium carbonate? I don't need very much.Secondly, I need a 20% solution of hydrogen peroxide. I only have a 3% bottle. I've heard H2O2 is some pretty dangerous stuff. Again, is it possible for me to buy/make it? Would freeze-purifying it work?Thanks for any help, and if I get this to work out, of course it'll all be turned into an Instructable.

### A couple of servo related questions.

I was thinking of doing some sort of robotics for the upcoming microcontroller contest, and need to reduce the weight of my design. So, try and lighten the battery pack, and give more current, I want to use 2XAAA @ 3V, instead of regulating a 9V cell down to 5V. The PIC supposedly will run on 2V. So the question is, how well will a servo perform on 2.5 to 3.0V, and what will the current draw be with a light load (I have heard that they can draw a couple of amps with a very heavy load).  Also, I have some 4V lithium ion cells out of a laptop, and need to charge them (They last so long on one charge, that I have not had to charge them since removing them from the laptop).

### Camera Stabilizer (Physics related)

I had an idea for a camera stabilizer a while ago which involves some basic rules of physics. I've done some thinking on it and I can't seem to figure out if it would really work or not. It involves two principles: 1.) Torque (t=f*d) 2.) Inertia (p=m*v) ---- The idea is to combine a gimbal design found on camera "gliders" like these: -Commercial product: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/521721-REG/Steadicam_MERLIN_Merlin_Camera_Stabilizing_System.html -Homemade design: http://www.diycamera.com/stabiliser/index.html ...with some sort of see-saw to counter the effects of up-and-down motion.  Ignoring the fact that this might be somewhat hard to hold such a thing, I just want to know if this would work. ---- Any balanced see-saw will have an equal amount of torque on either side of the pivot point. Therefore, a balanced see-saw will work with 500g hung 10cm from either side of the pivot point, OR 750g 5cm from one side and 250g 15cm from the other side (750*5=3750; 250*15=3750).  With this concept, I thought of designing this part of the stabilizer like a small camera jib (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jib_(camera)). That is, the camera on one end with a counterweight on the other. The pivot point would have a handle or some kind of vehicle mount on it.  The stabilization occurs (or so I'm thinking) because of inertia. Inertia=mass*velocity. So, when the pivot point (the handle) moves up or down, one of the sides of the see saw should move up faster than the other. The side that moves up slower (the longer side of the see saw, I'm thinking) should have the camera mounted to it.  ---- Is there a flaw somewhere in my thinking? THE QUESTION: Would both sides of an uneven length, balanced see-saw move up at the same time when the pivot point is moved up or down? I'm not really sure and I'd like to hear your input.

### Help needed desperately ! (Question related to batteries) Answered

Hi Guys,              Recently I planned on making an portable phone charger the classical way, with a car phone charger. But then I came across the problem of choosing a battery. The 8 AA batteries way is not economical, as I will be charging a Sony Xperia Z1 and it will drain the batteries in one charge. The 8 AA rechargable battery method will be better but will set me back about \$20 so that's a no. If I use a 9 volt battery it will charge the phone 20%. The final and the most stupidest method is to connect 10 9v batteries so that I get 9v 4 amps but that will be too bulky. Lithium batteries are useless as I will get the required amperage but the voltage will be too low and the other ones will once again set me back too much. So the only way is to use 8 AA batteries but every phone charge will cost me approx. \$1. Is there any other cheap way or 8 AA batteries it is? Thanks in advance :).

### Space Related Instructable - Atmosphere/Pressure Sensors

I am really into rocketry, aerospace engineering and space in general. I have met a few people at my college that are somewhat interested in the same but dont know alot about it. So i thought i could build a few different environment sensors like the astronauts use to simulate/demonstrate a few basics. For example i wanted to build a few different sensors. But i cant find any instructables to teach me how to make these....Can anyone help or can anyone direct me to a few instructables that could be used to tweak to work for this purpose? - To help show how the astronauts have to regulate their atmosphere in the ISS or even explain how we don't breathe just oxygen - we breathe a combination of O2 and Nitrogen since Earth's atmosphere is mostly nitrogen. O2 (oxygen) Sensor CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) Sensor N (nitrogen) sensor Display to show all sensor data - To help show how they manage pressure in the ISS and have it regulated by an airlock. Atmospheric Pressure Sensor and Display

Well, I don't have a mental problem or anything, but it often gets weird and I just can't help but to ask. I'll recount several months before, around March or May last year. I was practicing Morse code, practicing with visuals, practicing with audios. After a few weeks of practice, I started hearing Morse code in my head, as in out of nowhere I literally hear it (completely random, it's not spelling out anything last I checked). I asked around about it (deleted the question though) and someone mentioned it's not normal/it's rare. Then fast forward into around November or December, I keep hearing that Morse encoded "SMS" ring-tone from a phone (it's quite popular here, heard it more than a thousand times). I kept searching for that cellular phone, but to no avail. I covered my ears with pillows, and I still kept hearing it. I then concluded that it was in my head. The end result was I couldn't fall asleep for 3 hours lying down on the bed. It's something like LSS (Last Song Syndrome, search it up if you don't know it) to the extremes (to the point that it resonates in your head and you can hear it as an audible tone not from your thoughts). Any thoughts as what may have been causing this?

I also wonder if the battery is being discharged the same  way, when in use? E.e. is the proportion between voltage drop and capacity drop the same on the shelf while in use?

### A little bit of a question (related to a tutorial here on Instructables)

Well, I came across this post here a while ago, and I was lucky today to get one of these camping lights.  The problem with it, however, unlike the one that is in the tutorial (which is 24 LED), I have one that is 36-LED (pictures included). So, if there's anything different I need to do wiring wise in comparison to the tutorial, let me know. I know I'm going to need to remove the power button on the front and the inner ring and have the power switch/power line running in from the outside of the ring. However, the upside is the inner ring, with the LEDs removed, gives me at least a template on what to cut out from the front. I've already bought a four AA battery power compartment from Radio Shack. So, again, any recommendations about what to do different with this unit, let me know. And if anyone wants a better picture of the inside, let me know, I've got it. :D
