Crazy things you've done?

One of the crazy things I did was take nails out of the door hinges to a shed with my friend. Not too long ago the door fell down.... One of the not so smart things I have done is when we had a storm this winter I went bike riding. We probably shouldn't have done that but oh well...

Check out this collection of choppers, recumbents, tall bikes, and many more oddball ways of pedaling around. Kudos to all the folks who made these and ride them on the streets. It looks like a lot of fun. 20 of the Freakiest Custom Bikes on the Road via treehugger

Crazy Japanese translator

I was on a website about a rubber band gun, translated from Japanese. The translator made just a few errors. Here are some of my favourites: Rotating cam also be involved in no one's fingers, so ATODZUKE cover. (saying that there is a cover to stop fingers being caught in the mech.) The Ministry of institutions mainly composed of cypress and Chinese are veneer (saying that the gun is mainly made of cypress wood and a chinese veneer) magic tape, toothpicks (several pieces in the parts list, meaning cellotape and 1/4" dowels.) To repair a broken bone is fine, and should be completed in the re-creation of her that the P211 is TANDEMUBARERU II. (saying that the faulty gearbox will be repaired and presented in a new version.) PRA's board to improve slip silicone oil is not convenient to wear. (this one really made me laugh; it means that an attempt to make a better lubricant failed.) Open hand and the guard cells under the cover of the box will appear. (pull back the cover and you can see the batteries) Funny!

My Amps! My Amps! *Screams an old crazy man in the deli section*

Yes yes, shhh I want to ask a serious question today. I traded one of my kenwood amps for my parents as their sony surround unit is really shitting out and the sound sounds terrible and the entire control panel on the front is messed up. I just want to know a couple things about the sony to see if I can fix something. The panel, well that's quite interesting to explain and if I posted a video of it you guys would probably think I edited it or something. So imagine this, the bass + and - buttons are beside the treble + and -, two sets of buttons. If you push one of the bass adjustment buttons, it glitches and turns the treble for example, up or down randomly and doesn't do what I wanted it to do. It's like this with all of the buttons and seemed to have happened after we moved here. And I know it didn't get banged around because it was transported in the back seat of a car on blankets to the new house and carefully carried in by me. If I say try to use one of the surround sound adjustment buttons it glitches out and acts like I hit another one that's beside it in any direction. Hard to explain but I'm just damn confused as to why it suddenly happend (dry solder connections?). Damn this post is long and it's only half Bad sound, I will not tolerate it under my household, but on the other hand it was a $400 unit back 5 or so years ago and I KNOW it used to sound good, with a such a profound richness of bass that just punched right through you. Now it sounds like shit, the sound is garbled, distorted when turned up, it's not really noticeable until you turn it up fairly loud. I have/had my technics tower speakers hooked up to it and they sounded like shit when I turned them up, yet on my kenwood they sing like the wedding singer days. Any ideas nachomoma? I'll add another note that for most of it's life it's been hooked up to a pair of 250 watt (peak) optimus floor speakers and whenever we played it, it got HORRIBLY hot and warped the top a bit when it was on, enough to push it in and make it spring back up again with quite a force. I liked this receiver a lot and would like to use it again, but I don't know where all these "degradations" came from and despite my useless amount of amp questions/bickering's about I would really appreciate any ideas from you guys. Thanks.. -Punk

Captcha, Coincidence or Provedence?

Ok, ive been sending some PMs around, quite a few in fact. And i must say ive started to notice a strange resemblance between some of the words? Has anyone else noticed this? is it a message from god? are the instructables team 'brainwashing' us? Here a few examples of my captchas, they currently will only make sense to the few. Add your screen shots of amazing coincedence captchas in the comments!

HELP!!! My computers going crazy!

After I installed the drivers to a crappy web cam, I think it did something else. I was checking my processes tab and found a new one...I think. I can't tell exactly what its called because the first letter is either a capital i or a lowercase L but both from what I looked up aren't good. The full name is either isass.exe or Lsass.exe. Everything is running real slow and I've check the system startup to see if it was there also but it wasn't. I can't end the process either. I haven't rebooted yet only because after reading one of the descriptions it said it started to take affect when you do. I'm running spybot now. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Crazy Illusion

I was surfing the web the other day when i came across this crazy illusion. Enable it in fullscreen if you can, and stare into the center until the video ends, then look around the room. Everything should be distorted for a short time! Does anyone have an idea of why this happens?UPDATE: Goodhart kindly mentioned that this video should not be viewed by anyone with epilepsy, as it could bring on a seizure.

The largest man made island on the planet

This is really crazy! The city called Dubai has built the world's largest island - the island is called Palm Deira... Dubai has built two other large islands which has a similar design, the island are called Palm Jumeirah, and the other one is called Palm Jebel Ali.The island was built in a palm tree shape because Dubai wants to give more beach space to the Dubai's residents. The island is made from mainly rubble and sand. Dubai has also built two more islands, one looks like the world which is called "The World", I don't know what the other island is is really amazing what they had built...You can find more information here.

Cracker placing machine

Hello I have for some time tried to come up with the design for making a machine that can place crackers (like "TUC") in a straight line.  I tried to place Carcassonne tiles in a stack with a hole, so one tile could slide down, but the weight of the other tiles makes this impossible to do. To this I thought of placing a continuous track under the cracker stack, but I would prefer to keep this simple.  The design of the machine could be like a trundle wheel, with a squared pipe for the crackers.  The idea: I know the machine might sound very odd, but I hope that you can help me create this.  Thank you

BEEZID.COM...scam, or genius

Well, It's both. This is a new website that works like ebay, but all of the items are BRAND NEW and cost only pennies on the dollar. How the **** could this possibly work? Well the guy who made this website is probablly already a rich genius. Cars sold for a few hundred dollars, tv's for only $100, and brand new ipods for merely $50. Here's how it works. Items start at a penny and every bid brings it up another penny, but everybody that bids PAYS a dollar for their bid. so do the math. A car is sold for $500, which means 50,000 the guy gets $50,500 for a $20,000 car, but the winner only pays $500. This website is engenius for the creator, but be careful. You could be spending hundreds of dollars and never win keep in mind...all of the money has to come from somewhere. And in this case its coming from all the people who bid and lost the auction.

The World's Greatest Instructable

I've just been hit with sort of a crazy idea. Feel free to call me names, laugh at my insanity, or point out the problems with my idea; it will probably help relieve your stress, not to mention knock some sense into my head. Here's my crazy idea. What if everyone on Instructables collaborated to build the World's Greatest Instructable? Think about it. Where have you ever seen a larger community of people, specializing in all areas, who love to get things done, meeting together in one place to share ideas and "Show & Tell"? Where have you ever seen a place with 12 year olds who can weld, collaborating with 50 year old electronics professionals? Where have you seen a place where people vote for each others entries in contests and help with suggestions to other peoples entries who they are competing against? This is such a great place I can't help but believe that we would build something more awesome than the world had ever seen. We could all get together and make something spectacular and outstanding. Please, leave your ideas. Thanks.

crazy dreams

Ever have them crazy dreams? This afternoon I went home and ate some salsa con cheese and took a nap after work.(an american nap, yes there is a difference). Now I dont know if it was the cheese or what but I had this dream of "romantic nature" and at the end the girl turned into a bag of salad! I dont know if its because I recently moved to Lawton Oklahoma. (Its not that bad) or eating cheese before nap time.

Plant Electricity Generator?!

OK. this is gonna sound very crazy. i remember learning this thing about photosynthesis. there are electron acceptors and donors. during photosynthesis, the electrons are passed on and on. it's like redox reaction. or perhaps it is redox reaction. anyway i came up with a crazy idea of generating electricity from plants. there just might not be enough electrons to do the "work" (to get at least 5V? impossible.). batteries have the + and - terminal. plants have electron acceptors and donors. crazy, eh? what do y'all think?

Crazy Circuits Kickstarter and Giveaway

I though I might post about this new project we've put together. Crazy Circuits Kickstarter We've developed a LEGO based electronics system.  More or less, parts on circuit boards with big holes.  It works great for creating LEGO robotics and electronics projects.  From simple to advanced. We'll be posting several instructables on how to use these, as well as projects you can build with them.  (Or without them.  They're just simple parts on our custom PCBs.) We're also giving away several 1 month subscriptions on our Facebook page.

These numbers are just crazy!

I was looking at one of many websites I go to daily and found this really cool picture. It (the first picture) is of 8,000 42-gallon oil barrels. Which is the amount of oil consumed in the United States every two minutes. Crazy, huh?The second picture is the first one zoomed to see the detail at actual print size.There are more things like this here, and you will be amazed at just how much we use in such a small amount of time. Well it isn't just stuff we use, but most of it is.I never would have thought the United States would use 2 million plastic bottles every five minutes.

Crazy fun, or a slow cruel death - I can't decide...

This is just crazy - two Ocean Engineering students created a "hamster-powered submarine" from "materials derived from common household objects" that connected a hamster wheel in a sealed, air-supplied vessel to a propeller, allowing hamsters to take themselves on aquatic jaunts.  (via BoingBoing Twitter feed) Seriously, it's a submarine powered by a hamster in its wheel.  I can't decide if the hamster is having loads of fun, or is being driven mad with terror. It doesn't seem very fast, though... They documented the build on their own website, but if you would like to see an instructable on it, go to the video and leave a comment to say so...
