Ever thought about how many useless unimportant inside jokes that we have? They just go on and on!

Do you accept "joke" or Instructables based solely on "humor"? Do you think they should be allowed on Instructables? IMHO, if they are actually funny and/or build something cool in the process, I let them pass. Others, not so much. What say you?

I know it sounds dubm bacause the fire would melt knex peaces but i had a idea. you make knex track for a lighter to travel on and at the end have a peace that set off the lighter but still let it travle out of the gun. you put a layer of paper at the ent of the gun and the lighter lights the paper and when the lighter leaves the gun it takes the paper with it make ing a fire ball!

Question by Bert99 | last reply
I noticed we neither have a section, nor a thread for fun stuff, so I just made one ;)Let me give you something fun to think about, then you can add more funny stuff so we all have a good laugh :)The invisible man - a really old story!There is a man, thausands and thausands of year old, some even say he is as old as time itself.One day the old guy got really bored and decided to do something new.A few days of hard work and within a week he created the universe and all we know.To make it less boring he also decided to add some humans to it.After all, why would you need a TV if you can have it all life.Not long and those humans figured it all out and were really greatful for all the hard work done.So in return they accepted some ground rules, ten of them to be precise.Big buildings were built and everyone also needed some tokens to show how much he loves his god.Many years later some guy came along and got interested in this almighty guy everyone now called "god"."What does he do?""Oh! He loves you and watches you every minute of your life!""Nice! And what does he expect from me?""Just follow the rules and read his book if you feel troubled.""There is a book too?""Certainly is and you can have one for just 10 bucks.""And who is he and what would happen if I break the rules?""God is all powerful, wise, loving and forgiving but if you break the rules you will end in a pit of fire and pain for eternity!""Oh, that much trouble if I break the rules... Can I fix it if I did?""God always loves you and will forgive you!""Hmm, just to make sure that I got it right, let me sum it all up:There is an invisible guy living in the sky, he watches every single one down here every minute of the day.He is all powerful, almighty, all loving and the most forgiving guy you can find.But he needs money.Why do you collect moneyfor him if he never eats, sleeps, drinks or has any fun and also states there is no need for riches?"

Question by Bert99 | last reply
I want to prank a girl who I hate because she's been spreading rumours about me. I'm not really very upset about that but I still think it needs to be justified so I'm looking for some harmless and inconspicuous pranks that won't get me into trouble. My class is going on a school trip for a week and I want to take that opportunity to get back at her. We're visiting a big city and will be touring around during the day stay in hotel rooms at night. I don't want a HUGE prank because that could get everyone into trouble and ruin the trip altogether. The perfect prank would be something that isn't obvious, so it can be blamed on just dumb luck, but something humiliating or at least bothersome.

Heya guys, I desperately need help with two bullies at my school. They ain't strong or anything, but they're good with words. Their names are Jocco and Lucas. And lemme tell you, they are such a pain in my arse. Their targets are usually the new kids, like me and my friend, Danny I know it's just best to just ignore them, don't sink to their level and all that, but when they made my friend cry in more then one occasion, that's going too far. Their jokes are mostly sexual and racist, calling me and Danny gay just for being friends, saying that I have a vagina, and even going so far as to say he f'ed my mother. And his racist jokes are usually aimed at Danny, due to him coming from Czech Republic. I need help, and fast. P.S: Not trying to act like a junior gangsta or anything, but please don't tell me to report this to the teacher or something, because if I do, my popularity will drop faster than I can say Barrack Obama. Thanks in advance.

.I just wanted to say it : I hate April Fool ...............I'm perfectly aware that when it's about humour and jokes, I can be a real retarded kid or a real little rascal (sometimes both at the same time)...For instance, just to give you a sample, when I wrote "I hate April Fool", the "funny hemisphere" of my brain immediately computed a risky (and probably stupid and immature) pun :"I hate April Fool ........ 'cause this girl is a real pain !"Well ...... and paradoxically, despite I find many April Fool jokes funny, I hate this day.Why ?Because :1) every little "unexpected" (and plausible) information seems suspicious.2) some extremely serious persons (teammates or superior) tries to be cool only this day, and become ridiculously serious again the day after ......... and paradoxically, their April Fool sense of humour is as low as their seriousness is high the rest of the year (this is a great source of disappointment to see how stupid can be someone you respected for his/her intelligence).3) I don't remember #3 .... who really care about it anyway ???Voila ...That was my April Fool rant.Wow !

I had this idea for a gift for a friend. It's kind of an inside joke, and I know he'll really like it. I would like to take a T shirt, and somehow "petrify" it. My idea is to make some sort of form out of wood, or foam, or something. I would put the shirt on the form, and epoxy it. I thought I might wrap the form in plastic wrap, so that the shirt sticks to the wrap, and I can lift it off. Is this possible, and if so is there a better way to do it?

Hey guys. Yes, you read right. I am quitting knex and instructables. And if you think this is a joke, just go away now. And before you try to argue, I've already sold my knex, and moved on. I have more important things in my life to deal with right now, something real big. And important. So, i guess this is goodbye, i may be around and back here a couple of times every 8 months or so, but for now, its goodbye. I have handed my password over to Shadowman39, i know he will take care of it, and will look after it for me =) Thanks for all your support over the years guys, you're all awesome.

I really kind of like this guy in my French class and we text most nights when neither of us are working and usually we're joking... but in real life he's so passive most of the time, and other times he's sarcastic, and it's all underlined with this antisocial facade. Except we all know he likes to be around people. He likes to hear his own voice. But these are weird things that I like. Anyways, I was wondering if anyone had any advice about how to tell if he likes me back? It's confusing, because he acts like it somedays, not so much others...
So I'm entered in the April fools day project: prank contest with my ible www.instructables.com/id/April-fools-joke-Melting-popsicle-paperweight/ and I was wondering how many votes I have received. I know that people who have voted for you can view the number but since it is considered "not fair play" to vote for your own ible I won't do that. So my question is how many votes do I have en where can I see it? Also does a vote for your own ible count or not? (I read somewhere that that vote just doesn't get count)

So, yeah! I just realized that I've been a member of the community for over a year! A lot's been happened, but I just wanna say I'm glad for joining I'bles. When I first joined, I never thought I would become an overall well-known regular on this website, but I did, so that's awesome, I guess. Thanks to Eric for making this wonderful website, the I'bles team for being really cool and helpful admins, and to all the friends I've gained on this website. I would like to thank these friends of mine in particular:DJ Radio: Thanks for keeping it real with me, man. You're one of the first people I befriended with here on I'bles and also the best one. Continue keeping it real, brah!Berkin: You're awesome, period. Your ideas are just great and I would like to thank you for helping me with various problems I face in real life.bkreed: HAI HAI! THXMUCH FOR EVRYTHANG *GLOMPS*! Seriously though, you're just great. I really like how you can instantly spice up a boring chat just-like-that. You're the coolest dudette friend I have, better than the ones I have in real life. *GLOMPS AGAINZZ* The Jamalam: Thanks for cheering me up with your awesome jokes and antics and standing up to me in arguments. Also thanks for being a really good friend ever since the first few weeks I started I'bles. HAZPIE! (I'm sorry whoever you are if you're not included here. I think all my friends are cool, it's just that I never did get to know you better, I guess.)Oh yeah, I would also like to apologize to all the people I've dissed on I'bles, Lithium Rain and Keith-Kid in particular, because I attacked both of you even though I have nothing against you two (wait, cross that. I was really ticked of at Keith at the moment, but using Lithium as a subject for inappropriate jokes directed at Keith is just wrong and immature). Sorry again to everyone else, my attitude is just part of who I am and I can't change that.And lastly, I would also like to thank everyone who thinks my homemade weapons are cool. Thank you very much, the compliments meant a lot to me.So, yeah! Thank you to all of you for making these two years a very valuable and enjoyable one.Best Regards,Izanagi Telos.

I posted this on my blog today..... My husband has been on an arduous journey trying to figure out how many songs he can parody (insert Weird Al joke here) so that the main subject is focused on lunch or food. It's been funny because he actually is pretty creative. Here's just a few he's come up with..... - Power of Love (Huey Lewis & the News) is now Power of Lunch - Live and Let Die (Wings) is now Chicken Pot Pie - There Goes My Hero (Foo Fighters) incidentally is still There Goes My Hero but the next line is instead of "watch him as he goes" is now "hold the onions please." - One Love (U2) is now One Lunch....the next line is the same for each song "got to share it." I also though of the Beatles' "Can't Buy Me Love" is now "Can't Buy Me Lunch" and "Endless Love" by Diana Ross and Lionel Ritchie (or is it Peabo Bryson?) is now "Endless Lunch". My sister thought of Badfinger's "Can't Live, If Living is Without You" is now "Can't live, If Living is Without Food." Oh and Meatloaf's "I Would Do Anything For Love" is now "I Would Eat Anything For Lunch" and the next line is "but I won't eat that." Can you think of any?

Day two!Today, I would get to meet everyone who didn't show up yesterday. (It was, after all, Presedent's Day) When I got in, I hopped on the computer and started poking at my copy of the database. I know this isn't exicting for most people, but as someone who's worked through and designed a few DB's that never were populated, it was a chance to not only learn style, but play around with a ton of data. You guys are really busy!As I was working hard on my queries, I would continue work on the TV-B-Gone, and talked to Randy some more. Its so awesome meeting and talking to people in real life, and hearing and seeing their projects that are works and progress, some which may never make it to instructables.I couldn't stop laughing at Christy's attire, which has to do with a little project of hers and Eric's, and Mitch's that is going on this week, but you're going to have to wait until they make an instructable!Later in the day, I kept at all my projects, joked around (just a little! I swear!), and eventually finished the TV-B-Gone kit! Later. I was able to test it and it actually worked! I also got to use the laser cutter. I want to try cutting a perforated pattern, like a checkerboard, only *really* small. All and all, today was an awesome day, and I can't wait to get back tomorrow!wow! so excited, I'm making sooo many typos!

I wrote to the moderator and he told me I could have my account back if I wrote 2 apologies and you guys accepted them. One to Kevin, and one to the community. Here's my apology to the community, and I will send a private message to Keven about my apology. I wrote these before and I asked the moderator I talked to to post them for me, but he didnt really do anything about it. Hey guys, it's me, MotaBoi. As some of you may know kNeXFreek has recently come back to instructables and a few of us decided to play a practical joke on him by changing our display picture to something very offensive to him. I know some of you must be mad at me for doing this and I'm sorry. Why I'm apologizing to you guys like this now is because I need you to all forgive me so that I can have my account back.

I posted this topic before, but I don't think anybody saw it (instructables glitch?)From wendsday to saterday i went to a resort named 7 springs in champion, Pennsylvania. I was there for a national competition called technology student association (aka TSA). This competition was states, for I already went to regionals.I won 1st place in Electrical Applications, which is basically your knowledge of electronics (you take a test) and you have to create a circuit on a bread board, along with creating a schematic. I tell you, this was almost a joke. Questions on the test are like --| C---- what is that a symbol of? And what does IC stand for?The breadboard challenge was even easier. They gave you a breadboard, a 9 volt battery, a lightbulb, and some wires. The challenge was to make a circuit (and schematic) that light up the lightbulb whenever you touch the probes to the right spots. Like you know those question and answer things at science fairs where if you line up the right question with the right answer? That's basically it.I also won 1st place along with a couple of my friends for a medical challenge where we gave a presentation on alzheimer's disease. Not much to explainMe and my friends also won 3rd in another thing, I can't remember (I get my trophy on wensday because they didn't have enough trophies for the whol group). I think it was in agriculture and biotech where we talked about biofuels.Me and my friend got 6th in a challenge where they give you a random technology topic and they give you 10 minutes to prepare (no computers) and then you have to give a speach.Me and my friends got 10th in a thing called tech bowl where they give your random questions and you are in direct competition wire people nexy to you (you have a buzzer).Me and my friends got 9th place in a challenge where we talked about the enviroment (specificaly ozone depletion);)does anybody know where this came from, I'm pretty sure I saw it at TSA (I just remember a yellow wrapped transformer at an angle in a box with a phone and it's all in a box)http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2008/04/send_an_sms_to_save_your.html#comments.

Note: When I address 'ibles, I'm talking about the K'nex community here.Hey, knexers of 'ibles. Ignore my title, but it was irresistible , was it not?I'm here before you all today to give you all something to ponder, or act on. Yes, this is about the K'nex 'ibles and KI dilemma. I'm going to tell you now, I'm not going to flame 'ibles, or put offense upon it. Instructables is a DIY website, not specific to K'nex. It wasn't made to hold this community. In my opinion, people here care too much about things they shouldn't , such as ratings. People can rate them anything they want. "5 star because it looks cool!" "1 star, I don't like you." I haven't seen a lot of constructive criticism, which is, I think, what everyone should want. Most of the comments I see aren't very pleasant to read; do you really need to say "u" for "you"? Or "thx" for "thanks"? There aren't many rules here to enforce this. Or if there are, it's too laid back.First off, as you can tell by the name, K'nex Innovation was started for the productivity of K'nex. The decently small community there uses good grammar, to a point. It is moderated better post wise, as it is focused on one topic and things can be easier checked, for its size, once again. Another reason for this is that it's focused on one thing, and one thing only, so that there's less people than Instuctables obviously has. I'm not saying the people on KI have perfect grammar, I don't have it, but I'm saying that they try to the best of their abilities. No rating system. We give constructive criticism, and look down on "OMG COOL GUN!!!!1!!!!11!!" type posts. If you want to say that kind of stuff, PM the dude/man/guy. There's a mixed variety of people; gunners, and then some that make other nifty contraptions.There's a chat room, for K'nex talk. Of course, we have fun there too, throwing off jokes and playing around. Usually a good 8 or so people are in there. A handful of the more matured users who once roamed this site have settle there, such as Mepain and Oodalumps, to name a few. Recently, people there have started a podcast, currently with only two episodes. Also a step up in the community (coming from K'nex Innovation), soon there will be the first internet organized K'nex war.Even if you completely disagree what all that I said, please go check the site out: http://knexinnovation.net/And for those of you who want to talk it up with us first, here's the KI Chatroom: http://embed.mibbit.com/?settings=d4a2e2317b84e8897df0b736464a8ee4&server;=mibbit.darkmyst.org&channel;=%23KIchat&

Right first thing: any statements made by me in this forum topic are to my knowledge completly true and un-exagerated. Does anyone here believe that it is possible for someone to be psychic, or have "preminitions of the future"?I for one believe it is entirely possible, or more correctly is true.For I more or less have had preminitions of the future. Do't believe me? I will now describe one of the acourences and attempt to point out how it wasn't entirely a dreamRight, I'm in 4-H and one of the competions we have is called Food Show. All it is is that you have an interview with the judges and are asked questions about food and nutrition and the food item you have made.Anyways, about a month prior to one of these Food Shows, I woke up after having a dream about it. Since I already had had helpful preminitions before, I quickley jotted down everthing. Any ways I dreamed about my interview and the judges, I dreamed that I walked down a hall, to a room I've never seen in my life, yet was exactly how it looked when I saw it for real. I then proceded with my interview, who I could distinctly see, yet I'd never met or seen them before. I had my interview (boring details of my questions and answers left out), and I walked back out. I woke up at that moment, for I had sleep-walked into my doorframe (this is the only preminision that I woke up from, all the others I would only fully remember until briefly before the event was ging to happen), and I quickley jotted down the details. So ayway fast forward to the day of the contest, I see for the first time one of the judges, who I had never seen before yet she was the exact same one from the dream. Anyways a little later I found myself heading down the same hall to the same never-before-seen-yet-recognised room and the same judges one who I never had seen yet recognised, and the one I had seen previously. We proceded with the interview, that went exactly as I dreamed, I even cracked a joke that I woud never have done if I hadn't "foretold" it's success. I wound up winning, so I must have done a good job. Has anyone esle had similar experiences? Are there any scientific explanations? Your input is greatly desired.I AM NOT MAKING THIS STUFF UP

I am very angry and kind of depressed now.....I have fallen out with a friend, and i am pissed off.( this is at dinnertime - on the school playground BTW)It all started when i called him ( stuart) something ( daddy's little wh*re) as a joke. I always tease him and he just puches me , and then we carry on as normal. But i realised i went too far then, ( it was un-intentional; like a spur of the moment how i always tease him). I aploigised twice then, but then he chased me - he is very fast and this time he had a very angry look on his face! I quickly ran in a cicle and then ran straight outa the school gates for dinner- to avoid beatings.When i returned to school on the same day, I tried to avoid him incase i get hit, but i couldn't since my best friend hangs out with him, and i wanted to talk to him. So when walked up i imediatly got chased off ( but i was able to say sorry twice again). So next break i walked up again, But i got pushed, then kicked very hard on my arse by stuart. Then i got chased again and got puched twice. I decide to avoid him and ,my other friend totally for the remaining lessons.(TODAY), I normally walk with him too school and back form school. So when morning came, i got ready and left the house. I spotted him ( stuart) behind me and decided to carry on walking - too see what he would do..... Once he caught up he walked off! ahead leaving me behind! ( I thought the guy would off cooled down by now). Once i caught up with him i said:" hello. Are you still in a mood with me?"Stuart: " fuck off , i don't wanna walk with you, so get lost"Me: " why man? please, i said sorry lots of times...come on!"stuart : " Fuck off "I just realised he was angry and then just carried on walking to school away from him. I avoided him for most of the day, until maths finished:I was walking with another friend on the playground, then i saw stuart with his 2 friends ( one of them is also my friend) walking the opposit direction towards me.:When we were pararllel he got out his hand and pushed me really hard!me: " what the fuck did you do that for? I didnt do nothin' to you! "He smirked, and then walked off saying nothing.I am really angry and depressed now. I didnt go back after dinnertime today. Cause I am that down.. :-(Ive said sorry countless of times and ment it but he wouldn't listen. He just gets ready to hit me.I can't even hang out with my other friends because half of my friends ( he hangs out with). So im worried if i go up to them he might start a fight wich i don't wanna do. He is the tallest in year 9 twice the size of me, and pretty big. ( i know it would be a un fair fight ida get beaten). And now i havn't got anyone to walk to school with , which sucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know what to do?!?!?Personally i think he's acting childish. Ive apoligised lots and he won't listen. Thank you for reading this extreamally long post!!! Please Help with sensible advice.

Hey guys! This is my long awaited first forum topic on my first 2 k'nex creations that I've been wanting to get a topic posted about them for quite a while, but never booked in any free time to get one posted. So today, I've had nothing to do,so I decided to go ahead and post a topic. The guns themselves are quite explanatory. One comes from a traditional firing pin system that's been on the site for ages now. The other gun is also a pin gun, but also has a slingshot mechanism integrated into it. Basically, it's a pin gun that has the ability to be given an unlimited amount of increased power as well as the ability to control pin friction. I give special thanks to Fred the penguin for the original idea. Go look it up if don't know what I'm talking about. That was one concept I used, the other one is really awesome and comes from the mighty 182515. Basically it allows a gun(whatever gun it may be) to be broken down into as many parts as possible, while also allowing a front portion of the barrel to be removable and interchangeable. Both of my guns have this concept. Anyway, enough chit-chat, onto pro's and con's for these weapons: assault rifle- Pro's: -very powerful, breaks oodammo from about 40 or 50 ft, puts holes in drywall, and leaves some very nasty dents in steel doors with certain front ends. -very high range. I can easily shoot a finned tan rod 275 ft. with 3 strong unused #64's and with the tr-18 mounted on it. -extremely versatile. can have multiple uses. - trigger requires no rubber bands and blocks the pins progress every time. -reliable -Doesn't use many pieces,but it uses enough though. Con's: - Gun may be a little hard to fire due to the trigger setup. -uses broken parts. logic bow- Pro's: -extremely powerful. I shot and killed a possum with it using sharpened fin ammo and 20#64's and actually puts holes in steel doors. 'nuff said. -extremely high range. Shoots a finned black rod up to 600 ft. with a tr. And goes up to about 700 with the nar.(Only w/ latex surgical tubing or elastic bungee cord) -extremely versatile. Does the same thing as the rifle. -no pin friction due to the ratchet holding all of the pins bands. -very reliable. -unlimited power. -Like the rifle, the trigger mechanism now operates on no rubber bands. -Trigger guard Con's: - Piece consuming - A little heavy, but nothing too serious. -uses broken parts. Well, that about wraps it up. THESE WILL BE POSTED. I'm just not sure when yet. Below are some pictures for you to drool at. **UPDATE**: I have changed these guns up some after this was published. The rifle pretty much stayed the same, I only did most of the major changes to the logic bow. It now features: A trigger that requires no rubber bands, better body design, bow limb reinforcements, handle moved up to the middle of gun, sear system type trigger or trigger that blocks behind the handle and moves only in one direction, and all the other bells and whistles. I also attached generic/basic stock butts to both guns(lol, that joke is getting old XD). I will upload the new pictures in a few days. Check for updates from me often by the way. I think we're done here. **UPDATE** 10/25/12- I have uploaded the new pictures. The last picture is of a recycled steel can getting pwned by the logic bow. Enjoy. :)

I had originally intended to place the shocker in a small box and attach each output high voltage wire to a tin foil half wrapped over half of the box( i would cover the join with a ribbon) the plan was that when someone picked up the box their hand would form a connection across the tin foil halves and therefore their hand would be acting as a resistor in a high voltage circuit so a (very tiny less than 0.25 milliamps) current would pass through it( whether the voltage is applied across the two halves can be controlled by a remote hidden in my pocket so when other people pick up the parcel they get no shock). but i have found that ,although the output wires are at a high enough voltage to shock someone, the resistance of the tin foil means that the remaining voltage to go across the person's hand is not enough to shock them. ALSO the shocker will work across about a centimetre of skin ( like touching both wires with the tip of the same finger) but when the contact points are as far apart as a whole hand( like thumb to last finger) the increased resistance of the hand means that the current is so small that i cannot even feel a tingling when i test it( i had a few (willing volunteer)friends who are working on this with me also test but it could not shock them either). so my problem is that i must either find a much lower resistance form of contacts to coat the halves of the box( i have no means of using expensive materials or ones that need to be heavily worked on before attaching( like metal plates that must be attached to each face of the box)) or a ( very quick and simple, i only have about a half an hour slot of time to do any soldering before the party ) way to boost the voltage ( i was thinking of attaching extra batteries but suspect this would not work and also am unlikely to get an opportunity to do much electronic alteration) or ( most promisingly) must find a way to house some very bulky parts in a housing where i can guarantee that my colleague will touch both electrodes with one finger without suspecting anything until he gets shocked( this needs to be something like the switch on a torch rewired so that the electrodes are on the switch or whatever, or any other gift where the "obvious" thing to do is put a finger on a certain metal point for some reason( preferably when picking the present up)). I have already addressed any safety concerns so please do not criticise me for this as electric shocks are harmless provided the current is low enough and does not cross the heart.( i have a very low current with both electrodes on the same hand on top of which it only shocks when i press a button on the remote). ALSO please do not suggest i rebuild the whole circuit as i know that the circuit works fine and i do not have time to build it all again or do any serious modifications, THANKS any answers would be appreciated, THANKS i think i have found solution,it is really awesome and involves placing a battery in parrallel with the power lead into the shocker from the remote control system. i am not sure why it is working but i suspect some effects similar to capacitors are involved, the really weird thing is it does not shock you when you grab the box but rather when you pull your hand away. incase i find any other problems this thread is still open to suggestions and ideas for other solutions, assuming the system works perfectly after i have soldered my modifications in place( a few days time before i get a chance to use a soldering iron) then i will no longer need any help( providing nothing else goes wrong). thanks for reading all of this.
