I'm not quite sure what's brought me to asking y'all how tall you are, and I'm not sure why I care this much, but how tall are you? I'm 13 years old, and 6 foot tall, without shoes. I'm taller than most of my teachers, and only a few other kids are my height or taller. People literally look up to me. So, if y'all could post your heights, I'd sure like to know!

I know there are already instructables that show how to build a PVC flagpole, however what I need to build is different. I want to build a flagpole that is 15-20 feet tall and can withstand relatively strong winds. In addition, it needs to be portable and be able to be disassembled, so the sections of PVC can be no longer than 5-6'. I am worried that just using standard PVC connectors to connect the different sections will not be strong enough to withstand the wind. This flag will be placed in the sand on a beach facing the ocean, so a 15-20' tall flagpole will need considerable strength. I figured I would use a 5 gallon bucket filled halfway with cement as the base, and then bury the base in the sand so it is sturdy on the bottom. From there, I am having trouble coming up with alternative ways to attach the sections of PVC (besides connectors) that will withstand high winds and not snap. Do you think the connectors will in fact be strong enough? If not, are there any good alternatives? Lastly, would drilling holes into the PVC (to attach eye hooks) compromise the strength of the PVC too much?

Hi Instructables Community! I need to build a bed with about 2 feet of storage underneath it so I can put my things in boxes and sublet my room! I am attempting to do this on the cheap, but also want the bed to be sturdy enough to jump on! My idea is to have four 6x6 bedposts and construct the frame out of 2x6s with a 2x4 running lengthwise and also one running across on the bottom for added support. And possibly brackets to help reinforce the legs. I don't have a box spring and am not sure whether use plywood sheets or fence boards for the platform. Any thoughts on this plan? Does it sound sturdy? Also, I am trying to find a way to transport lumber from the building supply store I will buy it from to my house. If you live in SF and have a truck, I will pay you and make you lunch if you help me out! Let me know!

I always wanted to know how do get get on a tallbike. Do you put it down and then ride or do you have to climb on something taller to get on. I'm going to try and build one and before I build it, I want to know how do you get on it.

Takes 28,000 panes of glass, cover them in explosives, and ignite. The result is rather grand, and already a relic of the past before it's even finished... I don't have a clue what most of the voice-over on this ten-minute version is saying, but if you listen you can hear "western" words cropping up in the middle of Arabic sentences.

Not sure where this would fit - so square pegs it is!I'm interested in starting up a competition to build the tallest freestanding LEGO brick structure and I think Instructables could be a great place to play it out. As you've all probably seen, recently students in Vienna built the tallest LEGO tower at an amazing 29.48m. Photo at SF GateThe catch with that tower however, as pointed out by many in the blogosphere, is that it is 'supported' by wires, which keep it from falling in the wind. While they may just be a safety feature and not part of the structure, I agree with many who have said this is not really a freestranding structure - for that it would be LEGO brick and nothing else.So now, the challenge: Post an instructable showing how you built your tallest LEGO brick freestanding structure. This way, in the spirit of the DIY community, the next person can build off your design and improve it to create a bigger tower. Instructables should clearly show your method of construction, however there is no need for a brick by brick play. If you use a special technique to build the major components of your tower - such as a feature that allowed you to reach your desired height - highlight that for sure. For a baseline, I've found it very difficult to find any postings online of the tallest LEGO freestanding structure out there. Most publicity has been on these mega towers supported by tension cables. I was however to find one student's project here which topped out at a very modest 11 feet. 11ft TowerI hope to post my own attempt to beat this tower shortly - however if you've got the bricks - start building!! Then please link your instructable here.If you have any verified information on previous FREESTANDING builds out there, please post them too!Thanks!Daniel

This cardboard tower built by students for an exhibition in Paris is 33 feet tall and held together only by screws. It's made up of 96 pieces of cardboard and only took 9 hours to assemble. Even better, no scaffolding was needed as the staircase around it provided all the access the students needed. Cardboard Tower via treehugger

I was able to get the pieces for a Pax wardrobe from the "As Is" department. I figured crumbly fiberboard was worth $11 (versus $90). Now I need work-arounds for the hardware to match their rather strange assembly directions. Does anyone have any suggestions of where I can find equivalents/better replacements? Any help greatly appreciated.

I am thinking about planting a hedge around our air conditioner condenser to increase its efficiency. This would serve as shade for the condenser and as a means to inject water to keep the plant cooling the air as it evaporates the water. When rainwater is available, an aquarium pump could "irrigate" the hedge. When not available, a switch could control a valve for a high-pressure drip irrigation system. Both could be controlled by the compressor circuit. Keep the hedge trimmed about 6 feet tall and with just enough space around the condenser for a workman to easily maintain the unit (at least 3 feet from the condenser). The hedge would have to be drought resistant and one that does not shed leaves or debris. Any thoughts about this?

I built a pressurized jet alcohol stove and when I light it with no pot stand or windscreen, the jet flames are 2" tall. I add a windscreen and pot and soon I have a 2 foot tall blaze. I tried taking off the wind screen and I still get tall flames. I am using red HEET, but I am not sure that the fuel makes a big difference. I hypothesize that the reflective heat from the windscreen and pot are making the stove heat up and vaporize the alcohol faster. I tried putting holes in the wind screen and I still get big flames! I want a safe backpacking stove and I'm sure others have had this problem-- any thoughts on why it is so dangerous?

I already have a nice bbq and am wondering it it would be possible or worth it to build the fire pit up into a pizza oven? I have never laid brick before and the brick oven project i found when searching the site did not look to be made of brick.

I live in a rural area and we have two blue Harvestor grain silos. One has a 25 foot diameter and is 90 feet tall and the other is 4 feet from it with a 20 foot diameter and is 70 feet tall. I was wondering if it would be possible to mount a wind turbine on top of the taller one. I don't know much about turbulence though, if there would be too much? Or how high it would have to be off to clear the turbulence? This is my first try at it, I was going to try a treadmill motor, something small
