Sweet

This is an awesome contest, and I'm going to get my entry in early this time. Is it ok to integrate multiple things into one instructable such as a guide on taking photos, transferring them to computer, editing them etc?

A sweet Idea for a movie!

Ok, This Idea is either really cool or the dumbest one Ive had yet! What if They made a movie about aliens coming to destroy earth by infecting us with an alien virus that makes us turn into zombies, so the Worlds military makes Super advanced robots to fight them! and because all of the military personnel are fighting aliens The world erupts in mass anarchy and pirates start to sail the sea and attack coastal cities! So chivalrous ninja protect the people from the prates and aliens. But then the Anti-virus the Drug companies makes to stop the virus in the infected mutates and causes certain people to turn into vampires! I think it would be cool but it might also be a bit much! :)

Old fashioned sweets? Answered

This will probable only apply to UK based answerers of a "certain age" When I was a kid (1960's) we could buy a nut based sweet/treat - in a cardboard box, the resembled brown wrinkled peas - they were chewy (not Toffee) and a natural nut - slightly sweet to taste Any idea of the name - it's driving me nuts.

Sweet Sand Sculptures

Sand sculptures always amaze me. The good ones, I mean. Mine never progressed much beyond noble walls that were crushed by high tide, but it's great to see that other people kept up with it and can get such amazing results from such a finicky material."Fairy tales and legends" is the theme of this year's World Sand Sculpture Festival now underway at the Tottori Sand Dunes in Tottori prefecture. On display (until May 31) are 19 massive works crafted by world-class sculptors from ten nations. The artists used around 2,700 tons of sand and took about two weeks to complete their works.

My sweet computer

Ok, so i basically just set up my first pc. I actually built it from a dell dimension 4700. It now has a new motherboard which is much better. Heres the specs: Operating System: MS Windows XP Home 32-bit SP3 CPU: Intel Pentium 4 530 Prescott 90nm Technology Ram: 2.5GB Dual-Channel DDR2 @ 333MHz (5-5-5-15) Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5KPL-AM EPU (Socket 775) 25 °C Graphics: DELL E173FP @ 1024x768 Intel(R) G33/G31 Express Chipset Family Hard Drvie: 78GB Seagate ST380013AS (SATA) 28 °C Optical Driver: CD_ROM Drive Audio: VIA High Definition Audio Power Supply: The crappy 400W dell one from the dimension 4700. I really need to upgrade the power supply, cooling, hard drive, and maybe ram. Cooling especially, because i can overclock and i really want to. If i do a 5% OC, i stay at about 60 °C when playing games or stress testing. A bit more is pretty normal. Thats kinda hot though... So, thats why i want to upgrade the cooling. And it would help to upgrade the power supply a ton. And im going to need to with all the stuff i want to add. Anyway, heres some pics:

What ingredient in this tea makes it taste sweet? Cinnamon? Cloves? Nutmeg? Answered

Bengal Spice tea made by Celestial Seasonings tastes sweet when brewed without a sweetener.  It's so sweet you could convince a taster that a fair amount of sweetener was already added to their cup.  The listed ingredients are:  cinnamon, roasted chicory, roasted carob, natural spice and vanilla flavors with other natural flavors, ginger, cardamom, black pepper, cloves and nutmeg.  The box lists 0 calories and 0 grams of carbohydrate indicating no sugar.  Further, since the second infusion also tastes sweet, I doubt they "neglected" to list an ingredient such as sugar or stevia, which would tend to fully dissolve in the first infusion.  What ingredient is making the tea taste sweet?  Why isn't that ingredient used to sweeten other drinks?

Any Idea Why People Use Corn Syrup in Candy?

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could answer this question: Why do all candy recipes have corn syrup? I have tried making hard candies from just sugar and water, and the candies are good and hard the day I make them, but then the second day, they end up all crumbly when you bite in to them. Does that have to do with not adding corn syrup? Thanks for reading this question! ~Seawee

Large electrolytic cost/size "sweet spot"?

I'm in the process of sourcing components to build a capacitive discharge battery tab welder - there are a few designs out there on the internet from this one: http://www.philpem.me.uk/elec/welder/ which I like because it's nice and simple, to this one, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxWo8ko2k2A which is gorgeous but complicated. So anyway, first off I want to find some large capacitors. I'm wary of using car audio stiffening capacitors as it looks like they don't last very long for this purpose, although they can be obtained relatively cheaply, and I can't afford large standard type electrolytics which cost an arm and a leg. I did have the idea that there must be a "sweet spot" in terms of cost/size where I can build a bank of capacitors without breaking the other sort of bank - it looks like probably being around the 20 x 47,000uF (like this design uses: http://www.pittnerovi.com/jiri/hobby/electronics/welder/index.html ) mark, but I wonder if anyone with more recent component purchasing experience than me can provide some pointers? The voltage rating needs to be in the 20 to 30 volt range. Oh, and when I've finally built one, I'll post an instructable, I promise! My version is likely to be rather more analogue though as I don't know anything about microcontrollers.....

Portable Guitar Amp Hiss

Hi all, I have built this design with a few modifications to accommodate for the parts that I already have. I used a stereo 1/4 inch stereo jack, but I connected the 2nd signal to the battery negative and the ground to the circuit ground. This way the circuit switches on when I plug in a guitar. I also used headphones only instead of a speaker, so I don't need a switch. Now the circuit works and it is amplifying the sound, except there is a very load hiss. I am assuming that a certain frequency in not being filtered out but this may not matter when using a medium quality speaker because of its low frequency range. However high quality earphones can play this sound. Is this correct? Does the headphone work for anyone with the hiss? Thanks in advance

What is an ingredient I can add to something that cancels out a very sugary flavor? Answered

I'm making a mixture thats basically sugar and corn syrup, what can I add to the mixture to stop it from being so sweet that it tastes bad? I'm looking for something like a flavor or juice of some kind, and was wondering if lemon juice or something common like that would cancel it out well. As in it works with small amounts compared to large amounts of sugar. And it also has to not affect gelatin. Thanks.
