Hi everyone, I have found a local store close to my home that will sell me electrical metal tubing, but they will not cut it (they only sell it in 10'-long tubes). They have told me that they have a hacksaw in the back I can use to do it myself, but since I am just kid I thought they might be kidding me. Is it feasible to cut 1 1/4" electric metal tubing with a hack saw? The tubing looks pretty thick to me and I would need to make three different cuts. Thank you for any advice, James

An Ecto-1 that was built for Universal Studios in Florida is up for sale. If you really want to complete your Ghostbuster outfits and don't have the time then maybe you want to head over to eBay to put in a bid. Or maybe you can try to make your own for next year. Linkvia Neatorama

Russian technology satellite. One launch, 1957.10.04. Tikhonravov's 1.4 metric ton ISZ satellite was to have been launched by the new R-7 ICBM as the Soviet Union's first satellite, during the International Geophysical Year. But it was not ready in time, so Korolev hurriedly developed Sputnik 1 as a replacement. It became the first artificial satellite of the earth. Sputnik 1 had 1 watt of power, producing an 0.4 second duration signal on the 7 and 15 m bands. Four antennae were deployed at 35 degree angles. Power was provided by three silver-zinc batteries. Thermo-regulation was by a ventilator. The 580 mm sphere had a mass of 83 kg and was made of highly polished Aluminum AMG6T alloy 2 mm thick. It was built without drawings due to the quick time schedule. Korolev was everywhere, supervising all aspects of its construction. It functioned for 21 days. AKA: PS-1. Gross mass: 84 kg (185 lb). First date: 1957-10-04. Number: 1 . the word sputnik is russian word for traveller

So just something quick. I got this idea for a more powerful semi-auto. Its basicly a slingshot, when you pull the trigger it pulls back the band and releases it in a smooth motion. Then you pull the trigger back and repeat. Its nothing speicial, I can't even work on it now because of the railgun though.

Hello! I am doing a new Forum Topic train. This one involves some thinking. But it's not math! It's the fun thinking. The kind you can talk and laugh(and in this case, maybe yawn) about. So, what do you say? This week's Thought Bunker: If everyone in the world were to yawn at the same exact time, would Earth have enough oxygen to sustain all of us? Well, what do you think? Tell us! And now for this weeks best-thought: Nov 4, 2009. 4:33 PMSeleziona says: yes, everybody breathes normally, no oxygen shortages, and yawning takes a little more air, but not too much. So earth would have enough oxygen, and half of the world is asleep when we are awake, so it would be highly improbable

(I am planning on doing a forum post for each day of my trip in Japan. The first few days will just be copy pasted from my blog (but now with pictures, and image notes!), and after that I will type up the entry I kept for each day in my journal)I am writing this all on my eee pc, and, while I am getting the hang of this tiny keyboard, typing mistakes are common. I am also in various states of mental functioning so excuse any grammatical errors.I woke up at around 6:45 on Thursday morning. I had been feeling a bit under the weather, and was slightly congested. I really hoped that I did not catch something right before my trip. I woke up the other interns (Bilal, Josh, and Paul), because I knew they would be very sad and might cry, if I did not give them the last chance to say goodbye to me. We did a 4 way shoulder-tap, the universe imploded, and I was off.As I walked down Clementina I realized that it would be the last time I smelled that poo stench on the street. I had mixed feelings about this.The BART ride to SFO was very uneventful. Check in was amazingly fast. The line was short and moved quickly. I had almost everything I was taking with me in my carry-on. There was nothing in my checked baggage but knives and lint (one knife & one swiss tech mulikey). Anyway the whole process of checking in took about 15 minutes. The security checkpoint was even faster. There was no line, and for the first time in a long time I didn't set off the metal detector. I had shown up three hours before my flight to be safe, and I was now left with two hours and forty minutes to kill.I went to the currency exchange and turned 300$ into 27,000 yen. The Lonely Planet guidebook I have (which was printed just last year), has the exchange rate of one USD to 120 Yen, at the exchange booth they offered about 98 Yen for a dollar, google says the current rates are 107 yen to a dollar. Stupid weak American money. Anyway, I used ten dollars which I did not convert to yen to buy an english muffin breakfast sandwich and a gatorade. I went to my terminal, and accidentally dropped the barely touched sandwich on the floor while removing my backpack. I was hungry :(I read for two hours then boarded the plane at around 11. There were many people coughing on this eleven hour flight, so I did not have high hopes for avoiding sickness. Read some more on the flight, watched iron man in Japanese, watched iron man in english, and watched be kind rewind. They served two decent meals, and a few snacks in between. Ten hours later when we were finally over Japan, I went to the back of the plane, and stared out the window in the emergency exit door to get my first view of Japan.We landed around 2 pm on Friday. It was hot, so very hot (humid too). I filled out my customs form, got fingerprinted, and photographed, and made my way over to the baggage claim to pick up my knives. I made my way out of the airport to the train, and bought a ticket for what I hoped was a kanayama station bound train. Turns out it was. (cue the "ding" sound that is played on the audio tracks for slideshows, when it is time to change the slide). The first few pictures are of Kanayama station. There was a cool little inflatable pool, with little kids in miniature paddle boats. They also had a bunch of those water mist sprayers that people stand in front of to cool off.I relaxed at the train station for a bit before I caught the number 12 bus. I took it to the Ishikawa Bashi stop, and got off. I used a pay phone to call up Changmi who I had found on couchsurfing.com. I actually set up the couchsurf with her husband (who was out of town) who said it would be ok for me to stay, so I think she was a little surprised when I called. She said that she was currently hosting two couples who each had a small child. It was cool if I stayed, but it would be crowded. She picked me up at the nearest intersection with her mother, one of the couples, and their child in the car.We drove to downtown Nagoya and they let us out. Changmi and her mother were going somewhere, so I hung out with Sarah, Seba, and their daughter Maya. They were couchsurfers from France who had been in Japan for a couple of weeks. We walked around central park in downtown Nagoya for a bit. There is the large TV tower at one end of the park, and a bunch of art pieces scattered about randomly (metal taco boat thing). We went and got dinner, which I later found out to be pig intestines, with an egg, over rice. It was pretty good.After eating we took the subway back to Changmi's house and slept.Japan Day 2

HI! I am wondering if .999...=1? I mean if 1/3=.333 and 1/3+1/3+1/3=3/3 and 3/3=1. So wouldn't .333...+.333...+.333...=1? But it actually equals .999... not 1. I googled this question and I got many different answers ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ For example...(someone wrote): I'm not really into math, but a friend brought something up to me today that really seemed very strange. (For the duration of this post, .999 will mean .9 repeating unless otherwise specified- just for the sake of ease) .999=x 10x=9.999 10x - x = 9x 9x=9 1x=1. .999 = 1. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Someone else wrote: Numbers are fake. They are a manifestation of our minds to describe something, similar to words. Just because we say "red" doesn't mean something is red. what is red? Languages and math are very similar. Math is universal...at least for our planet though. .999~ does not = 1. But what .999~ repeating represents, does in fact equal what 1 represents. No-one will ever be able to comprehend infinity, os its time to stop trying. Think of space and the universe. IT IS GROWING. how can it continue to grow with no stop? what is there to contain it? WE need something to contain it in order for us to understand it. We need a stopping point, but there is none. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So who is correct? Do you agree that .999...=1? Or .999... does not equal 1?

So here's the problem, my friends and I are in college and love our x-box console, but hate the small screen. Not having a big scren, we are trying to find out how to get the one console to have four screens. We all have smaller TV's and there is on medium one in our living room. The game splits up 4 players into equal quaters of the screen. My thought is that the x-box video should go into a laptop and then be split u into 4 displays, with the laptop screen being the a full screen. The laptop in question has 1 S-video, 1 standard monitor output, and 5 USB ports. How do we do this, for cheap? I'm thinking it would maybe work like those walls of TV's that make up 1 big picture.

Hi! I have an Acer Aspire 1. I had truecrypt on it encrypting the whole harddrive... had some problems... etc. etc. etc. I ended up just wiping the drive and upgrading from W7 starter to W7 pro. Now I don't have a valid driver for my ethernet, WiFi, or graphics. I tried to find the drivers on Acer's website, and ended up talking to a tech rep who of course didn't really know anything. He told me that my computer can't run W7 pro... which obviously it can since everything else works. He also told me that Acer will not supply the driver for my computer. The only option he gave me is to buy recovery media from them and restore it to W7 starter. I'm not willing to settle for that even if I have to live with it the way it is. Just thought I would ask if anyone else has had this problem, and if so how they fixed it? (And yes, I already Googled it a couple different times... nothing on Google worked.) Thanks in advance! :)

The Munny is a fantastic toy for those who like to customize stuff. The 7-inch tall vinyl toy can be painted, reshaped, and modded in many other ways. I'm personally a big fan and turned a couple into a pair of speakers a while back. The dolls have now been on sale for five years and to celebrate Kidrobot is selling them two for the price of one for the month of June. They're also having some contest, but more importantly this is a great time to stock up on a couple of Munnys if you've ever been interested in them.

Here is Atlantis, my knex ball machine. This machine has new layouts and designs not yet seen in ball machines of its size. Atlantis will only have one lift and four paths, this ball machine is mainly made for its looks. This ball machine is built on a 5X5 red rod base with 5X5 red rod walls that are slanted. This machine has two finished paths, one is almost complete, and one that has not been started. Some of the elements can be seen from the pictures. Im currently out of pieces, and wont be getting more for a long time, so Atlantis may not be standing for long. This ball machine has been in progress for months now. Tell me what you think!

(I slightly changed the instructable into a forum topic and an instructable)The Instructable Half"Global Warming" Experiment #1:As you can tell by my quotes around "Global Warming", I personally don't believe that this theory is happening. Theres facts I can use to prove this. However, even I believe that no matter how you put it, there's going to be some bias. Also facts are boring :PSo, what I have planned, is to do a series of experiments on what global warming might cause if it were real.I'm doing this because I've heard people claim some extraordinary things, which based on data won't happen.I could post an instructable with a bunch of facts, and I might. But for now, I want to set up a couple collaborative experiments. One reason I want collaboration is I'm biased. The other, is so you can't complain about my methods.I haven't done the experiment yet, I really don't know if this will help, or hurt, my case.The experiment is to determine if "global warming" could melt glaciers, thus cooling the ocean. Notice here I'm assuming global warming is happening. It isn't. But when people make claims on the news and stuff, they are assuming that too.Please comment if you would like to change my methodology, OR you want to do the experiment.I'm going to describe how the Instructable (and hopefully the rest in the series) will work.1) I, or anyone, proposes a framework for an experiments and writes up an Instructable. (Will be referred to as "I" in the following steps)2) I monitor the suggestions, editing and fixing as needed. After about a week or so, I go onto step 3.3) I preform the experiment to the best of my ability, and write up an additional 2 steps.3a) The first outlines my changes. This could mean I didn't have a 4x8 loaf pan, and I had to use a 3x8. Or it was plastic. Whatever. These small details are important3b) The second outlines the data and conclusion. This may have images of the experiment, graphs, tables, sensor data, Whatever. I also make a note of my previous bias.4) Wait for more people to run through the experiment, adding them as collaborators.5) Write up a conclusion to everything, OR do some more investigating.Its not that bad, however the whole process might take a few weeks. (I don't know)Scientific MethodThere are seven steps to the Scientific Method, which we will follow:1. Define the question2. Gather information and resources3. Form hypothesis4. Perform experiment and collect data5. Analyze data6. Interpret data and draw conclusions that serve as a starting point for new hypotheses7. Publish results(Thanks Wikipedia!)#1 was done in the introduction.#2 I've already done, however you only have to look into data you'll need during the procedure.#3 I've done it, but I'm not telling you (I don't want a bias, even though I've hinted towards my guess)#4 - We're going to expand this out. More later!#5 and #6 sort of come together in this format, will be done as we go along.#7 is done as we go!Okay, #4. Remember back to High School, remember Lab Reports? Well basically there will be a step for each segments (leaving some out). We sort of do this already in most instructables "What will happen", "What you need", "How you do it"; this time more formally. Due to Lab Reports being unstandardized, I'm breaking it down into:IntroductionMaterialsProcedureDataIts shorter than your average one, due to the fact in Data, you have hypothesis and stuff I don't want to reveal yet ;-)The following is the framework, you can also see my instructable:(This is a framework, remember. Its not supposed to be "done" and perfect)Materials*Large basin of some sorts.*Water*Ice*Lamp + Light bulbs (100W & 40W)*ThermometerProcedure1) Fill large basin/pan with water.2) Take and record standing temperature of water.3) Add ice off to one side of the pan.4) Take temp. of water every five minutes until it starts to level out, at least 4 readings.5) Replace water, and repeat steps 2&36) Shine lamp w/ 40W bulb off to the non-ice side of the pan, but allowing some light & warmth to reach the ice. (Roughly 20-35%)7) Repeat steps 4&58) Repeat step 6 with a 100W bulbTake pictures throughout!What now?Okay, I'll be updating this with your comments over the next week or so. If somethings wrong with it, POINT IT OUT!!! I'm going to add my thoughts in as well. (I still feel its missing some things, I can't put my fingers on them, though!)

Hello from Instructables HQ!*Last Saturday, I flew down to visit Instructables. I stayed and poked around San Fransisco over the weekend, but today I started my Instructables internship!(Sadly, I left my camera at home, and I don't have nearly as many pictures as I'd like)I arrived at the control tower, and was greeted by [/member/numberrandom Mitch] and [/member/fungusamungus Ed], and [/member/candia Christy] & [/member/ewilhelm Eric] arrived shortly thereafter. I was shown around the place, and then I started to get working. I got to take [/member/noahw Noah]'s desk, since he's out for the week. (Probably chasing [/member/T3h_Muffinator Muffinator] to get Project X's instructable done...)Soon, [/member/rachel/ Rachel] walked in, and helped me get a copy of the database working, so I could start working on site-related things.While the computer was chugging away (as it did for the rest of the day), I walked around and met [/member/randofo Randy], and a few other people. Randy explained to me some of the cool things that he's working on, and I offered to help. Somehow, we stumbled upon the idea of drying clothes by microwaving them, and we were really close to actually trying it...Later, I started assembling and documenting [/member/ladyada Ladyada]'s (seealso) TV-B-Gone kit. I didn't get to finish it before the day ended -- it just flew by!Everything was going great. I had been extremely excited for this opportunity, and its even better than I thought. Everyone seems interested in each other's projects. Its really cool.I can't wait until tomorrow, where I hope I get to do more exciting and fun stuffs! Yes, I said stuffs!* okay, I'm not there right now...
