Ok, Other People Need to Enter! Answered

 Other poeple need to enter this contest! Part of me doesn't want the competition, but the other part realizes that without competition, there can be no victory. If you are reading this, I'm looking at you to submit a supercalifragilisticexpialidocius Instructable to this contest!

As Theodore Roosevelt said, "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred be dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error o shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cols and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

Now go and make a great Instructable!

 Hooray! 

Pssshh, you can. 90% of good pictures is lighting and keeping the camera steady.

 Well, see, I'm working on how to dig up dinosaur, and there are no digs going on in my area, so I can't take real pictures...

 But I do plan on making a short video explaining how to set up a dig, and how to careful remove fossils.

 Mini-models, yes, but dude, schools still in, and this economy, a road trips just about impossible! Darn economy!

 Oh, that stinks. We're never going to have school again, too much snow here...

That is very true, or we could do what they did in the depression, and hop in a boxcar!

 No, I meant my program on my computer to make a video, Lifeframe3  is SUBAR: Smeged Up Beyond All Relief. But yes, it was made. Sadly with no real photos, Lifeframe 3= SUBAR.

Kudos for the sportmanship!

Unfortunately, I have just been informed that my school will be receiving an official inspection some time in the next month "or so".  All projects shelved until after that time... :-(

 True. We're probably not going to have school for the next month or so...
