Presidential Weirdness

Proving the only thing weirder then presidents are presidential candidates:Dennis Kucinich admitted during a debate that he witnessed and communicated with a UFO. Bill Richardson (Governor of New Mexico) then called for the federal government to "come clean" on UFOs.In vaguely related history, Jimmy Carter was attacked by a swamp rabbit.

Time is weird

Huh. I just realized that I have now lived in the house I'm in (and consequently, my two oldest children have lived here - the youngest has another year or so to go) longer than I lived in the house where I consider myself to have "grown up" (ages 8-19 or so.) As a side effect, this also means that I've lived here longer than I've EVER lived any place else. It doesn't really feel that way; I don't know whether time is compressed as your get older, or stretched when you're young (probably both.) Time perception is weird...

Weird cable? Answered

OK so im wondering if this on the market (a little back story) Im building myself a home media center using an old pc and xbmc. I'd like to connect to my TV through HDMI so i can get full 1080p video from my media center the only problem being is that my old pc doesn't have an hdmi port only a dvi, so i was wondering if a cable or box existed that could combine the dvi from the graphics card and audio from the headphone port into HDMI allowing me to simply plug the other end into my TV.                                       --------DVI (female from graphics card)                                      /   HDMI (male)<---------                                     \                                      --------Audio from PC (female from little green hole by usb slot on the mobo) Something similar to that, preferably cheap otherwise I'll simply pick up a new $50 card from Newegg.

Weird email!

I want to express my discontempt for a message I just recieved: it says that a good instructable must follow the following criteria: NOTE: I have only published 1 instructable, titled Chrono-SOCCER! - details a finished project with instruction (not just links to instructions) - has clear images that you took of your project (web-found clip-art is not acceptable) - uses proper spelling and grammar - contains appropriate cautions or safety considerations - does not violate someone else's copyright - does not violate the Instructables terms of service - is typically written about something you are very passionate about and want to share. This is what I think: 1.- I put in put in the whole instructions (I don't even know how to put a link) 2.- I DO NOT own a digital camera; I put a table instead 3.- I apologized beforehand of being Mexican and perhaps making some spelling mistakes. 4.- This instructable shows how to play with a watch, not dangerous by the way 5.- This game is of public domain here in Mexico; like paper-rock-scissors in USA 6.- Believe it or not, I DO like reading the "small letters" and it does NOT violate the TOS or otherwise invite people to do so 7.- Obviously I like the theme or I wouldn't have published it thanks for reading this and I hope someone can do something about this because they are just sending pre done e mails!

What is this weird transformer?

I opened up a microwave hoping for a microwave transformer. But instead i got this weird looking one. i was hoping someone may be able to identify it and tell me if i could use it for a tesla coil. also, there was no capacitor??!! the largest caps i could find were those three red ones in the pics. it apeared to have litz wire on the outside and normal wire wind on the inside. Numbers in it were - 97INV (im not sure if its a 1 or i)   and F69144TOAP and finaly   F607C.  Update:  ive now taken it apart, see picture. so, im guessing the litz wire was the primary (240v) and the solid wire is secondry (around 2kv). the secondry contained one really long winding and then another winding which only went around once (like in a normal mot). It looks like some sort of high current flyback. also, the secondary is also some kind of litz wire. It has many smaller hair thin enameled wires woven into a single strand. My guess it this thing operates at really high frequencies

Am I weird?

So... I'm starting to think that I am weird... because I like art like Mona Lisa, Arnolfini's marriage, and stuff... But I love stuff like death metal. It's just like watching Mona Lisa headbang. I like doing origami... but I like metal drumming. It's like seeing someone like AdamsSara from Youtube playing a constant double bass to death growling. I am actually very polite, but if you knew me for real, you would think I am someone who would like cut school (which I don't). It would be funny though. It would go something like this: Me: *Walks into convenience store* Dude Behind the counter: Aren't you supposed to be in school? Me: Why yes, thank you for saying that. Now give me all the money in the register please. If you don't mind. I won't hurt you. Dude behind the counter: No Me: Thanks anyway, please don't call the cops on me. *Laughs* Am I weird?

What is this weird reamer?

So I found this in the shop the other day. It looks like a normal reamer but it's not round. Four flutes extend to a larger diameter while four extend to a shorter diameter. The shorter flutes are sharpened just like the outer ones so they were clearly designed to cut something, even though they appear to have no clearance with which to do so. The tool has a keyed taper meaning it was intended for use in a heavy machine. The dimple in the tip of the tool does not go through the tool body.  Can anyone identify this weird tool? None of the professors or machinists I have shown it to have any idea what it is.

Weird HDMI trouble

Hi! I'm having some weird issues with my HDMI connectivity... I have a SHARP tv (aquos, 52"). The PS3 and other stuff is working as intended when connected via HDMI to the TV. However, when I connect my computer to the TV the computer recognizes the connection, but the TV doesn't, or whatever the heck it might be. To try and solve the issue I just bought an HDMI switch, connected my digital box and PS3 to this, which works just fine, and tried the same with the computer. Nothing. The computer wont even recognize that connection, as it atleast did when directly connected to the TV. However, the real issue at hand is the first one, why the computer recognizes but won't send signals properly or otherwise why the TV wont accept the signals (but seeing as the HDMI switch doesn't acknowledge the connection to the computer, the computer should be the issue?). Im thinking it might have something to do with the computer? Anyone got a clue?

See quantum weirdness for yourself!

An article in ScienceWorld reports on a proposed experimental setup which would make quantum entanglement visible to the naked eye! Using stimulated emission (the same effect that causes lasing), a group led by Nicolas Gisin of the University of Geneva proposes to amplify one photon of an entangled pair to a level that is visible to the naked eye. Observers watching through polarizing filters would then be able to directly see the "spooky action at a distance" of quantum correlations.

Please Identify Weird Component.

The metal disk is a component, physically broken in an RCA f32450 tv.  The blue capacitor was sent by sears as a replacement.  Yeah, I don't think that's the right part, guys.  The component was near the  built in fuse, has very low resistance ~  3 ohms from 1 face to the other,  and used to have it's leads soldered directly to it's surface where the diagonal mark is. My theory is that it is designed to break if the tv is jarred.  Sort of a mechanical impact sensor. Does anyone else know with any certainty?

Weird junk characters in Firefox?

So, I have this annoying problem with Firefox... As I browse the web, opening and closing tabs, I get an accumulation of (Japanese?) characters all over the tabs at the top of the screen.  It starts with one or two, but soon builds up to obscure the tabs, so that I can't find the Xs to close tabs, or even switch between them (see the screenshot). The characters occur no matter what websites I do or do not visit. It eventually gets to the point where I have to close the software to get rid of the mess. The problem has persisted through uninstall/reinstall of the browser, and the only add-ons I have running are a dictionary and McAfee site advisor. Yes, I know I could just switch to Chrome, but FF is my favourite browser. Anybody know a cure?

BUG: Keeps changing log-ins

OK, a weird bug - Roger-X was editing his first instructable, and when he changed steps it suddenly changed from being logged in as him, to being logged in as me. No strange messages or useful screen-shots - it was just the bit at the top that changed. The page also locked, so that in the end we had to shut down Firefox and re-start it. Later, when I was looking at my comments, the login suddenly jumed back to Roger-X's. Again, no odd messages, and this time it didn't lock - I could access all his account quite easily. Additionally - we are experiencing problems logging in and out - if one of us logs out, the other can't log in until we shut down FF and re-start (yes, we've tried flushing the cookies etc). We type in our username and password, and it just jumps back to the login option. It's bleedin' annoying, folks.
