What has Instructables taught you? Answered

It being near the end of the year, I figured that this would be a good topic.

From being a member of Instructables, what have you learned? Either from iBles, or through forums.

How have other members here helped you or changed your life?


I'd have to say, that I've learned way more about electronics than from reading books, and have finally found a way that I can entirely express my self.

Happy New Year everyone!

O Instructables, how have I learned from thee? Let me count the ways... Instructables has opened up a whole community of Very Smart People that I can ask questions. Instructables has taught me that there actually are more than three other people in the world as nerdy as me. Instructables has shown me how to use what I have in more creative ways. Instructables has given me a cool little paper catapult that shoots small objects across the room. (Thanks, Kiteman!) Instructables has allowed me to share my ideas with others, and help some of said people out. That's five. Do you want more? Oh, Instructables has showed me that some people have way to much time to spend with their K'nex.

Oh yeah, and Instructables has given me a new appreciation for orange. I used to hate it, and now I actually used an orange color scheme for a logo in a computer art class.

I still hate orange, but this site is a great example on using usually-bright-and-overbearing colors nicely.

I have been here for about 1 year. (January 24th is my 1 year anniversary), and this is the only online community that suits ALL of my interests. There is not one site out in the interwebs that has the features available on this site. I have learned many new skills, I have found my DIY inner-self, and I have learned so much about DIY electronics and technology. What better way to learn these skills, than DIY projects written by people with the same interests!!! It is truly amazing, and I am blessed to have found this site.

I am more of a Geek than a nerd. So Geeks are people too, although we are a special type of people LOL (just teasing).

That eople who go by "Tool Using Animal" on the internet have a strange sense of sarcasm that's quite funny. ...And that you're allowed to answer questions with subordinate clauses...

Many people have changed me on Instructables. I got more into my hobbies of coin collecting (just a bit) by knowing Brennn10, and I started to love electronics even more because of this great website. I learned how to make delicious foods (thanks Shifrin), make many cool things, amazing K'nex guns (thanks to all those people on Instructables that makes the cool guns), and just... wow. I learned a LOT of stuff on this website, I love this website. Instructables rules!
