Building a sawing-a-woman-in-half box?

I'm interested in building a box to perform this illusion on the relatively-cheap. Granted, there are many ways of performing this illusion; I'd like to build one that doesn't require two women but uses fake legs instead. I don't need help with the fake legs.

Woman from the inside out-video

I stumbled on this video: http://www.pelourinho.com/movies/c003702/An artist draws a woman starting with a skeleton, and going from there to a fully dressed figure. Pretty neat.The artist does go from bones to skin to clothes. It doesn't really show much, and I didn't find it offensive, but have been asked to label it NSFW.

Painting Video Portraits

My friend Marc Scheff is an accomplished digital painter, and recently came up with a new idea: when painting someone's portrait, why not give them both the finished product and the work as it was created? Thus were born Video Portraits. He's done a bunch, which you can find on his blog.I've included two, here. One of a woman named Polly Rose and another of Barack Obama (our next president-to-be!)

Proximity Sensor 1' - 25'; Bat Ears for a Blind Woman

First of all, I'm a noob in electronics, so please explain your jargon as you would to a 3 year old. I am smart & learn quickly. So, I really want to make my blind 80 year-old grandmother a pair of bat ears. I bought her one of those sonic distance measureres from home-depot because of the barely audible tic they send out to bounce off wall/etc and record the time it takes the signal to return. You can hear the tic, and with your eyes closed.. you can kinda tell how far things are away from you just by listening. She loves it, and it just barely.. kinda works. What I"m shooting for is a single over-ear headphone (xbox-live communicator style) with some type of proximity sensor attached, sending a constant signal to the headphone... low for long distances, gradually higher for gradually closer distances. Any reasonable suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Can people please give me links to free-for-use 7-8 minute monologues for young woman?

I'm looking for a 6 or 7-8 minute monologue or one-woman play to be performed by a young woman. I'd prefer for it to be modern (within the last century) and to have some kind of meaning or something that people can connect or relate to.

Bullet proof bra!

A US woman had a lucky escape when a burglar's bullet bounced off the metal underwire in her bra.Police in the city of Detroit said one of three intruders fired a shot when the woman looked out of her window and saw them raiding the house next door.The bullet smashed the window and hit her, but instead of causing serious injury - or worse - it was deflected off the wiring in her bra.The unnamed 57-year-old woman was taken to hospital and released the same day."It did slow the bullet down," said a police spokesman. "She sustained injuries but they're not life-threatening."Teenage gangThe woman, who lives on the west side of Detroit, had seen the youths breaking into the house next door while her neighbour was away.Police believe one of the gang saw her looking out of the window and fired at her.The suspects then drove away after the shooting.Local police Sgt Eren Stephens Bell told the Detroit News: "We need to get some bulletproof vests made from that. It is some strong wire." BBC Story

Parlor Trick Question

This fad of "planking" reminds me of a parlor trick I think I read about once. Perhaps from the 1800s. A woman lies with heels on one chair, head on another. Supposedly she has been hypnotized to be very strong. Then a heavy guy sits on her stomach. Is there a name for that? Or a place to find image, or reference?

Guess the album ? Answered

Hello, This is a very, very long shot . . .  When I was young I bought a second-hand record  originally from the 70's  or very early 80's . . .  I have no idea what happened to it but almost weekly I think about how to hear it again . .  I have stopped myself from asking in Answers for several years but today is the day. As far as I remember it had an album cover with a plain beige border, inside the border was a drawing of an art nouveaux type woman woman with flowing clothing. The theme was all Hari Krishna but not an actual Hari Krishna record. Lyrics such as  " there is a distant place called sweet something,  where silent  something something, . . .  Beneath a snowy ocean lying wide lies something something . . . " there was a lot of Govinda going on. I've tried looking for album cover on Google images. I've tried typing in all the lyrics that I can remember. No luck . . . any ideas anyone. And, no, it's not Kula Shaker, although I do actually like that track. Thank you

worst customer experience

Has anybody had a real bad experience with a customer? or a customer with an employee? So i was once worked at an ice cream parlor.A woman says to me in Spanish and the only word i recognized was chocolate (there's actually two chocolate flavors, regular and chocolate pecan ) so i gave her the pecan one ...she tastes it and she threw it at me, (lucky for me i had to do the long shift). On that same day another woman showed up and asked for chocolate pecan in broken English and i asked waffle or cone (people never specify waffle or cone) she gave me a dirty look and i gave her the cone,she throws it down on the ground, Being the only one there and I had to mop it up, some customers are yelling at me in spanish (later i figured out it was bad words). So by the end of that day i had about 5 people throw ice cream at me 2 were adults and 3 were kids.

Hotmail formatting problem - a question from my mother. Answered

My mother uses Hotmail (Windows, IE), and is having an issue with formatting.  Whilst typing an email, the formatting buttons (bold, underline etc) do not all work. They are visible, and if you hover the cursor over them they will tell you what they should do, but nothing actually happens. Worse (for her), the emoticon button isn't working either. Click on it, and the selection of emoticons appears, but none will work.

Cyber War with a Shovel?

A 75 year old woman has cut Armenia off from the internet. Whilst scavenging for copper in neighbouring Georgia, Hayastan Shakarian accidentally severed the fibre-optic cable connecting all three of Armenia's internet wholesale providers, and the whole country was cut off for almost 12 hours until after midnight on the night of 28th March. The pensioner has been arrested, and could face three years in prison, but has been released pending the completion of the investigation and the result of the prosecution. Armenian websites identified Shakarian as Armenian herself, not Georgian, and questioned the credibility of an old lady causing the blackout, claiming similar damage in Georgia has caused problems for Armenia in the past.
