Don't you hate it when.....

...you make something and forget to document it because you're so engrossed. I made a night light for my daughter. It is inside a coffee jar usually but for getting a good picture of the tree I took it out. It has a tilt switch for on and off. Upside down is off. It's also got.... A lithium battery Wireless charging Magnet wire construction I'm posting this because I don't know if I'll make another.

Why do people hate art?

My "How to Make Art" Instructable has 4 negative ratings thus far (in less than a week). This makes me angry. It's not that terrible of an instructable. In fact, I think it's one of my better ones. I am lead to believe that one of the following is probably true: 1) People don't like seeing drawings of nude men on their homepage. 2) There are some boring self-righteous artists types visiting Instructables who clearly know nothing about great art. In fact, I bet they spend all of their time, at home -- alone -- telling their seven cats how Georgia O'Keefe was the greatest American artist. So, if you don't hate art, please give my instructable a good rating. If you do hate art, why are you clicking on it to begin with? There are plenty of other lesser Instructable for you to denigrate.

My girlfriend's dad really hates me for some unknown reasons. What should i do?

I have a problem with my girlfriend's dad. I dont know how to fix it......everytime her dad sees me, he just yells at me......today he saw me and her together and he started beating me.....I didn't do any self defense as i know alot about respects. I am 20, and she is 17 turning 18 in couple months....It got to a point that i really hate her dad but can't do anything about it. My girlfriend also doesn't know what to do because her dad really loves her and everytime after he yells/beat ME, he just apologizes to her but obviously my girlfriend is starting to hate him more as each day goes by......I don't want this to happen because i think family is always important so i am trying to find solutions to fix this at any cost! Even getting stab by him as he threatened me today before i left. I just don't get the problem at all. Her sister who is 19 year old can date freely with this other guy but her dad just HATES me. I look and AM a very nice guy....only thing is can think of is i am a whitewashed asian and her dad has a very traditional asian mind.

Cheap eye glitter sealant?

I love wearing glitter on my eyes but hate it when it starts flaking off. Eyeshadows with shimmers and glitter particles are too subtle for the look I'm trying to achieve. Vaseline is too gloopy and so the glitter never stays in place and MAC's EZR is far too expensive for me. Topshop did a glitter sealant a few years ago but I've never seen it since. Anybody seen it in the shops lately? Does anybody have any other suggestions of how to keep eye glitter in place?

You'll probably hate to hear this, but lots of stuff isn't available here, hence hackish solutions are probably the best. Thanks for any help.

Where to buy citrus peel in bulk?

Remember that orange peel cat litter that was briefly on the market about three years ago? The cats hated the stuff, but oh how it worked in the bunny's litter box. I want to buy orange peel in bulk, since the litter company appears to have gone under. But I don't want the fancy pants potpourri or medicinal or culinary stuff. The bunny won't come in direct contact with the litter, so such properties do not matter. Citrus peel + baking soda = best DIY bunny litter. Any suggestions of websites where I could order such citrus peel would be awesome. Thanks in advance!
