     I tried this and I'm sure I followed the instructions accurately ... BUT
    After a while the much taller thing topples and becomes much smaller.
    Is this normal?

    didn't monty python have a skit about this? some club based on putting things on top of other things? now, what if i wanted to make, say, a priceless one of a kind faberge egg taller? do i just hold it up higher? and what if i drop it? and what if the items i want to make taller are ROUND?!?! My marbles are feeling quite inadequate next to my stack of cd's!! and finally, to take another monty python idea, couldn't you just dig a pit and stand in it next to the item you wish was taller?

    you forgot the addition of a trench coat. all you nay sayers have some point, many things stacked on top of one another make nothing taller. a final step was forgoten though, probably the most important. if you put a trench coat around the stacked item then they DO become taller. simple logic people!!

    if I were to say that this was not a very good instructable, that would be an understatement. everyone knows how to stack things, and as crapflinger said, they don't actualy get taller.

    ....stacking something doesn't make "the thing" taller..."the thing" doesn't change size...you just...have more of "the thing" lined up in a vertical axis. it's a shame that people feel the need to waste time like this...why not do something useful with your life...like...get a job at Mcdonalds...cuz that's probably where you'll be working the rest of your life

    I have a complaint about this method. From the picture, three stacks appear to have been made out of said "a thing". I have done rigorous field testing with this process and determined that it is in fact possible to make "a thing" even taller using only two such stack. Needless to say, I leave this point up to the conjecture of my fellow mechanical engineers.
