If you are willing to shell out 5 pounds, you can prove, once and for all, that your dog really is smarter than other dogs. Stanley Coren's new book, a Klutz-look-alike, comes with a custom stop watch to test your dog's intelligence. In due time, I expect that we'll see review books to help your dog achieve that perfect score.Link via Boing Boing Gadgets

Some of the micro Knex kits come with bricks, which are useful for testing a gun's strength. for example, my bolt action shotgun (youtube) has a strength of about 60%. A standard brick for building these would be a 2*4. 5 rows and five columns. how many were destroyed divided how many in total standing would get your average. I shot at about 10 feet. Hope I helped revolutionize k'nex strength tests...

Hey, just wanted to let you all know (so, maybe I put this in the wrong forum) that I am up this early in the morning ( 6:30 am ) because I have to go to the hospital for a complete cardiac / pulmonary workup and battery of tests. Yeah, getting older stinks, especially if you let you physically self atrophy. Anyway, just wanted you all to know, in case you don't see me for a few days or longer (the tests only last about 4 hours or so, but they could potentially bring on cardiac arrest, or trigger a severe asthma attack, depending on the kind of shape I am in ( it is kind of a pregnant pear shape actually ). See you all when I am back from the hospital....Addendum: I have a lowered amount of blood flow to my heart. What this means is that I am a borderline heart attack candidate if it gets any worse. Cholesterol was a little high, triglycerides way high. I will find out details on Friday I suppose when we discuss options...Addendum 2: The pulmonary tests ( 05/21/2008 ) were horrible, but there doesn't seem to be anything overly wrong that is obvious to the tech, with my lungs.....will have to wait for the doc's report thoughAddendum 3: Well, I am afraid things have progressed to the next step... I have to have a heart cauterization to see what may be blocking the lower artery, and how bad the blockage is. If not too bad, they will simply do a quick angioplasty and open it up, but if bad, I will then be scheduled for a bypass. *sigh* as we age the fun just never ends, eh ? Addendum 4: It will not be THIS coming week, but most likely next week, they will do the double bypass. Because of the location of the blockage at a major branch which would end up cutting off flow to the other artery, they have decided I best have the bypass done. PS: there was hardly ANY pain in the cath procedure.....I am going to give the person that told me that a hard time next time I see them :-) But I have experienced broken bones already, so I know the next step is not going go be a picnic. Addendum 5:I may be able to get the bypass done as early as Monday the 9th Yay ! Addendum 6:I am now into my second week of recovery, and things are progressing so well, my wife is afraid I will want to go back to work early and she will be alone again.

Finals are OVER! And I should be ecstatic, but I'm just exhausted. I had Fluids, knocked that mutha outta the park. Modeling Methods (ugh!) think I did good, even a zero on the final would still net me a B in the class. Circuit analysis (yech), somewhere between a 60-90 in that class, the class was incomprehensible, the online test was broken and you can't learn with 220 people chatting over the prof. and lastly Machine Design- I'm worried about that one, I had a 90% going into the final, but I forgot to put J & I for a solid shaft on my formula sheet, oops, that cost me a shaft design problem, and when the heck did we cover welding? dammint. Next up Vibrations, Heat Transfer, Mech Properties of Materials and CadCam. BUT!!!! in between, well I have an interview tomorrow, I'm undecided on if that is a good thing, and then it's a week of floating around the Caribbean. Woot!

There are constant reports of high lead levels in many toys, as well as new findings that lead is an even more dangerous neurotoxin than previously believed. Does anyone have the chemical background to devise a simple home test for lead levels in toys? My thoughts are that a number of toys would be place in a bathtub, and a leeching agent would be added which would dissolve some of any lead present. The dilute solution in the tub would then be tested by a standard home water supply lead test. This could possibly be a great service... Thanks!

I recently took the pamel (pennsylvania math league test thing) and for one of the questions it said: rearrange the numbers 2 in anyway with mathmatical symbols to get the highest number possible. I though the answer was 2 to the 222 power The answer was 2 to the 2 to the 22 power Is this correct? I thought that you would multiply the powers to get 2 to the 44 power, now have the power to the power and get 2 to the 4194304 power.

One of the things that I have always wanted to do since I started "K'NEXing" (building with K'NEX) is to just sit down and start measuring, testing, and trying out new guns, different types of ammo, things like that. Then I realized something... I am way to lazy to do all that "work." So then I thought, well, maybe I could...*cough*... bribe other people to do it for me. So if you are at all interested in winning a 3-month pro membership, read the rest of this post. In order to win a 3 month pro membership (and a patch) you must do one of the following things: 1) Build a TR8 (no mods please) (only using 2 size #64 bands) and use it to shoot the following ammunition: Finned red rod Red rod Yellow rod Oodammo round White rod Fire all five of these ammunition types five times and take the average of each. It is preferred that you take videos proving the range, but this is not necessary for you to win the the pro membership. In order to enter your stats, you must have a picture of your gun, AND a picture of the ammo that you used. 2) Build a NAR (no mods please) (only using 2 size #64 bands) and use it to shoot the following ammunition: Finned red rod Red rod Yellow rod Oodammo round White rod Fire all five of these ammunition types five times and take the average of each. It is preferred that you take videos proving the range, but this is not necessary for you to win the the pro membership.

Okay, so I want you to tell me what you think. I am testing my ability to tell what a song means by it's lyrics/song title. Song: Deviate From the Form Artist: Scar Symmetry Okay, so already there is a clue. The word "Deviate" means to swerve, avoid, etc. So obviously, this song is about avoiding something. Now, lest look at the lyrics. First verse: I transcend my earthly form Through some questions never asked before Question the need to be a machine That responds automatically Okay, so "I transcend my earthly form". Transcend means to outdo, or exceed. So, basically, imo basically saying that you are doing better, or knowing better than a human. Knowing whats right and wrong about some questions that haven't been asked before. I suppose they mean something like "When will the next largest technological revolution happen?" Or "What inventions will destroy our planet in the future?". Like questions technological revolutions, and future disasters or inventions. To back up that paragraph, read the next two lines. "Question the need to be a machine that responds automatically". Or to translate that, why do we need all these machines? Do we really have to be too lazy? What's next, self folding clothes? We do not NEED all these inventions. And later in the song, it talks about how there are changes, and turning into nothing. And what I mean by that, is that there will be so many innovations, that Earth will be pretty much taken over by robots. It will be nothing. All these machines are monotonous. They do not think, or have emotions. They are NOTHING. So to sum it up, I think this song means that they are trying to avoid becoming nothing. They do not like how there is an invention for almost everything ever thought up. They are staying in the past where we did not need all these gadgets

Question by DELETED_DELETED_kruser495
There's a preprint out on arXiv reporting an analysis of entering SAT scores vs. in-major GPA for four years of graduating students at the University of Oregon. The authors report a fairly low correlation coeffecient (0.35 to 0.5), with a long left tail in SAT scores. The latter strongly implies that university success is not well-predicted by the SATs. They also find a high correlation (0.75!) between SAT and GRE scores. It's a very nice analysis, and a reminder that standardized testing is an excellent way to measure how well someone can perform on standardized tests.

I searched Instructables to be certain I am not covering something someone else has already done, but found nothing. Here is an excellent article on troubleshooting a bad string of Christmas mini-lights. (I do not know the author and am not connected to him in any way.) I know of three occurrences of non-working light strings from this year's celebrations. In the first case, the woman who owns the Christmas tree simply bought a new string of lights and hung the new lights over the old string attached at the factory to her synthetic tree. I did not see her tree and cannot say what the cause of the malfunction was. In the second occurrence we put up a synthetic tree with two strings of factory installed lights, one for the bottom half of the tree and one for the top half of the tree. The string on the top half worked some of the time, but then would go out. Typically one suspects a bad bulb. That is also the general suggestion made in the very fine article I linked above. However, that proved not to be the problem. Rather, the problem was the very cheap electrical plug. I cut the plug from the string so I could open it and determine exactly where and how it failed in order to satisfy my own curiosity. Installing a new male plug solved the problem. In the third case, my daughter had a string near the top of her tree that was "out," but not completely at the top. I had limited tools and resources, but plugging the bad string into a different molded female plug brought it back to life. The moral of the story is that while a bad bulb is a frequent source of problems, the molded male and female plugs on these inexpensive light strings are often held together only by a lick and a promise, and fail easily. Giving the molded plugs a hard look is much easier and faster than removing and testing bulb after bulb. The first photo shows an extension cord with molded plugs from three strings plugged into the extension cord. The second photo shows the bad male plug on our tree, and I am using my multi-meter to test for continuity between the brass plug blade and the load end of one of the tiny fuses inside the plug. That part tests "good." The other fuse tested "good," too. In the third photo I inserted a straight pin into the wire and tested for a circuit from the brass blades to the wire. Both sides failed this test. A multi-meter can easily test what I needed to find this problem. I would have needed to strip away some insulation from the wire or stick a straight pin through the wire to obtain a reading with my multi-meter. But, by this time I had bought a hum tester with a high and a low range for checking different voltage ranges on an AC circuit. It led me to know the plug was the problem.

Question by K.G.T. | last reply
Hey, what's up everyone, I'm new. Hopefully I'm not breaking any rules. So I'm sure you've gotten tons of these already, but, I have a pair of broken earphones. Two pairs actually. On both, the right side is broken (as in, no sound). I took them apart and found that on one of them the coating of the wire seems to have melted or something (there was sticky black stuff all over the inside), and on the other the diaphragm thingy is detached. So at first I thought there were frayed wires somewhere, but the electromagnets on both still work (I tested them with a piece of metal, the attraction was still really strong), so I figured that there must be something wrong with the diaphragm (what are those things called? the plastic cone thingies?). My question is: Is there a way to test the diaphragm thing, and if that's the problem, is it fixable? Thanks very much in advance.
