This is the moment everyone has been waiting for. We are finally giving you the chance to enter an Indestructibles Contest! We are looking for projects that are waterproof, fireproof, freeze-proof, crushproof, crash-proof, drop-proof, shock-proof, radiation-proof, slash-proof, stab-proof, bullet-proof, shark-proof, tiger-proof, toddler-proof, and can withstand most other acts of god. It should be able to handle just about anything life throws your way.

Think STRONG! Make something that will last 10,000 years or armor something unnecessarily. We want to see what you can do to make things that can't be destroyed. Bonus points will be given to people who demonstrate just how much their project can withstand.
