Some of us should post lessons on how to skateboard because there is none on this site (i think). People could teach others by pictures or videos step by step on how to skateboard. Like tips and tricks. Also we could start at like basics like how to turn and stop. Then have some tricks like how to ollie and kickflip.

I was pretty impressed with the ingenuity and creative thinking that went into developing plastic sheets on ski hills for skiers to continue practicing through the summer. Maybe someone could make an Instructable on how to do one of these on the cheap for anyone who isn't fortunate enough to live near a ski club outfitted with these plastic chutes? I'm not a skier myself; grew up in Florida and live in SoCal so I'm more of a summer critter, but I love the Winter Olympics.

I have a place, which I want to convert to a garden. My home is two story, so I'm gonna use this second story balcony for my garden. As I'm a beginner at gardening, I don't know where to start. I plan to plant fruits here, and I prefer starting from seeds. What fruits are suitable for my place, which is a tropical place? I live in Batam, Indonesia and Batam is just 10 degrees north from the equator. Can I plant strawberries? Please help me.

I just moved my office and now there is a pole in my cubicle. I've decided to turn this heinous and inglorious pole into a beautiful and realistic indoor tree. The pole is 6" in diameter (18" circumference), 9' high. I've ordered birch bark tubes to wrap around (http://www.barkcanoe.com/materials.htm) the pole. The trunk is set. Next up is to make branches for the top of the tree. Anyone have experience making branches and leaves look realistic? Where can I buy artificial leaves? Should I buy an artificial tree and cut off the leaves? Should I make the leaves myself? Thanks!?
I'm hoping to get info on starting poppies from seeds. Some questions are: What temperatures are best to start the seeds? Is it best to stratify the seeds first? I have been told to plant seeds where they won't be moved-for moving them can kill em. A few years ago I had to remove poppy plant because it was growing in line of septic line-which had to be replaced. So this was apparently true as to why I lost it! I think it must have re-seeded itself and kept coming back every year. Since I have been trying to start more with not much success. Thanks

I am wanting to make some sulphuric acid because it is on of the most useful acids around and i have ran into a problem. after you burn sulphur to create sulphur dioxide you then need a catalyst to form sulphur trioxide and then dissolve in water. which catalysts could be used and could you just let the sulphur dioxide dissolve in hydrogen peroxide (so2-----so3------h20--------h2so4 or so2 ------ h202---------h2so4).if this would work how could you get a large enough concentration of hydrogen peroxide?
