Would it be spam if...? Answered

Ok, I'm writing an ible on something I intend to sell at some point and I'm certain that that would be considered spamming, but there is a lot more to it. It's on the adventure through the whole process of taking your idea from your head and onto a production line and having it be 'open' and then attempt to sell it at the end of the ible and/or pepper hints throughout it. I'm pretty sure the way I'm doing the ible isn't spammy at all, but I just want to make sure.

Would this be illegal

Today while I was walking on the street I saw something that gave me an idea. I saw a piece of tin foil stuck to the road. I think this happened when tin foil flew out of someone's trash, landed on the road, and was run over by cars repeatedly. After the cars run the foil over it wedges itself into the cracks and doesn't come out unless you peel it off. Now here's my idea: buy a ton of tin foil and cover the street with it or write something on the street. Anyone know if this would be legal? Anyone ever done this before? Any suggestions if I do it? P.S. I live stateside if that matters

What would you do?

Well last night I was laying in bed and turned on the History channel. There was a show on about how the world could end and it scared the crap out of me. There was part of it that said stuff about an asteroid and how if there was a huge one that was going to hit us we would know the exact date. Then the people on the show were interviewing people about what they would do and a lady said that she had three kids back to back so ahe would have a margarita. I know this is a rather pessimistic/depressing forum but if that was to happen what would you do during your last days on earth? I don't know what I would do.

Would this require Programming?

Hi! I'm building a laptop bag alarm for a project I'm working on, and I'm pretty new to electronics. Would anyone know how I could make a system where a switch would be flipped to turn 'the alarm' on or off, and when that switch is flipped, the system would do nothing when the security system is triggered. The security system being 3-8 LDR sensors inside the bag, that will trigger some sort of logical part, that would be able to make the decision whether or not to sound the alarm, based on the status of the switch (flipped or normal)  I'm a programmer, so the system looks like this to me:  IF ALARM_SWITCH_ON && LDR_TRIGGERED { TRIGGER LIGHT && SOUND }  IF ALARM_SWITCH_OFF && LDR_TRIGGERED { DO NOTHING }  ELSE { DO NOTHING } Anyone know how this could be made with circuitry? or whether it would require programming? If it required all circuitry, is there anywhere I could get help with drawing up a circuit diagram?  Cheers & Thanks!  Karan

Would this Schematic work?

I am an amateur building a solar powered bilge pump and was wondering if the schematic I made would work. The idea of the schematic is that if switch 1 is open and switch 2 is closed, the 5w solar panel will charge the 12 volt battery. And if switch 1 is closed but switch 2 is open, the 12 volt battery will power the 2A bilge pump. My main question is which way will the current be flowing. I have drawn some arrows to show which way I think current will be flowing. Please correct me if I am wrong. Also tell me if any components need to be flipped around.  All answers are appreciated, Connor

Would This Circuit Work?

A while back I designed this circuit, and to my knowledge it should work, but I just want to get a second opinion. It is a game in which there is a circle comprised of 12 LED's and the goal is for the user, to press a button, and stop clock so that the green LED in the circle is lit. There is another switch in the circuit so that the user can reset the game at any time. I'm sorry that the picture is very faded and a bit cluttered. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Would this ionizer work?

I built an ionizer in an old metal ATX power supply case. My electricity is 230V 50Hz. It uses 22x 2.2nF capacitors and 22x 1N4007 diodes. The circuit is about this(with the activity indicator). I also added a small unregulated non-switching power supply for a fan that: cools the transformer forces air through the 5 needles. The ionisation current calculates to 5uA/needle. or 25uA total. Important (or so I think) details are bold.

Mousetrap car Pulley help.

Hi! ive been working on a mousetrap car for my physics class and i was looking into the idea of pulleys to get more power to pull on the axle to rotate it. Ive noticed that alot of the Pulleys I see all rotate on an axle which I can not acheive due to the small space on the car. So my thought would be to anchor these small wooden pucks (small like 1 cm diameter) and have notches in them so that the fishing line wouldnt slip. (picture) Can I get some help on wether or not this would work? If it works can I get some input on how i could make it better? ex. different pulley designs that dont require moving parts. Thanks in advance!

Then I'd tape/glue a capacitor from a digital camera onto the tennis ball and charge it up. It would hit the bottom, create a spark, and ignite the fuel. Would this work?
