Americans bomb Kiteman: miss by sixty years.

A Royal Navy bomb disposal unit has been called to an unexploded bomb discovered on a Suffolk beach.Experts in the unit think the bomb was dropped by a US aircraft in World War II, while returning to an airbase.Houses and schools within half a mile of the site at Felixstowe harbour have been evacuated while the unit works on the device.As I type, a bomb-disposal expert has been on the TV to say it may be a 500-pounder.BBC storyLocal pressEDIT: It's a German bomb, not American. You can tell your lawyers to relax.

Seed Bomb Vending Machine

Seed bombs are little balls of clay, compost, and seeds that you can toss into a vacant lot to try and get some new plants to grow. It's a guerrilla gardening technique and you can see how to make one here. If you just want to pick one up and live in San Francisco you can now buy them from a vending machine. These were designed by Common Studio from LA and repurpose old gumball machines with the benefits going to Project H Design. First Seedbomb Vending Machine Lands in San Francisco!

Star (stasterisk) arrested at Logan airport for bomb scare

A 19 year old female M.I.T. student was arrested at gunpoint after entering Boston's Logan International Airport with what authorities claim was "a fake bomb" strapped to her chest, according to wire reports. The device is said to have been some kind of computer circuit board with Play-Doh and wires attached, strapped over her black hoodie. Link to AP report on her arrest.The young woman is identified as Star Simpson, shown in the image above left, and she is a sophomore from Hawaii. She has a user account on Instructables. Boingboing story Star's Instructables pageUPDATE: CNN videoUPDATE 2: Pic addedUPDATE 3: Canida's response added to BoingBoing, and a call for geek-protection sticker designs!UPDATE 4: Simpson pleaded not guilty to a charge of possessing a hoax device at her arraignment in East Boston District Court Friday afternoon. She was released on $750 bail and ordered to stay away from Logan Airport.Simpson could face up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine. WBZTV storyUPDATE 5: We had a quick chat with Star! She's doing fine, and after dodging packs of media she's finally getting back to work on her problem sets. There's still school, you know. Of course, they've impounded her sweatshirt, so she's got to do something else for the career fair.

Sparklers and the meaning of life

I have been playing with sparklers for ages now the latest experiment was to do several layers of aluminum foil and duct tape around two packets of sparklers and putting some arrow fletchs on them... the last one we tried went across three paddocks and nearly took out a shetland pony :-( we measured it the next day and it came up to 150 metres. However i have allways been looking for explosions... sidetracking slightly here but i actually got an explosion my bro welded up a pyramid the size of a soccer ball i filled it with sparkler dust dad wasnt very happy about the huge hole it left in our roof when it exploded and sent 6ml plate in the air for over 10 seconds that was the dummest thing ive done so im looking to down scale slightly with less shrapnel. So in conclusion Im after a recipe using roughly $30 worth of sparklers to explode keeping in mind that i live in Aus so some matierals are harder to come by. thanks everybody any feedback is supported so keep the comments flowing :-)

Smoke bombs that explode on contact

My idea is as followshave an outer layerthen inside that is a layer of a shock reactant chemical or substancethen another very thin shellthen the inner core of a regular sugar & potassium nitrate smoke bombthe way it works is the bomb will hit the ground causing the first chemical to react then that ignites the smoke bomb which will make smoke billow out a designated holemy example and original idea includes Nitrogen Triiodide and the regular smoke bomb mixtureps. if you want to know how to make these things go tohttps://www.instructables.com/id/E5YK8KLTDKEQOEX3CK/?ALLSTEPS for nitrogen triiodidehttps://www.instructables.com/id/E6F4H9Z605EP2867LO/?ALLSTEPS for the smoke bomb

For Star

I want to do something for star...as you know, she was arrested for having a "fake bomb" hoodie. Read more here.The problem is that we all live so far apart, we can't have any sort of protest, like was had for the tazed kid at UF. I'm trying to think of things we could do to show our support that doesn't require mass gatherings. So one idea that came to mind was having the front be a picture like what she had on hers, and on the back, some kind of a message. Do you like that idea? Do you have any others? Just like..discuss, and we can try and find the best thing to do. If we do decide to make shirts (iron on paper) maybe we could all wear them monday, or something?

Flash Powder Problems!!!!!

Every time I use flash powder from firecrackers to try to make a big one all it does is burn up. No matter how hard I try to compress the flash powder all it does is burn up when it is supposed to blow up. Any tips?

Epic Yarn Bombing!

New York yarn artist Olek has pulled off an act of epic yarn bombing. She crocheted a cover for the Wall Street bull.

Smoke bombs that explode on contact --- contest

I have decided to make a contest to see who can truly make a smoke bomb that will explode on contact with the ground no madder what part of it hits the ground. it will be graded on - ingenuity - ease to make - artistic beauty (yes it does count [just not as much]) - best instructions - safest (this grading spec will only be used if there is a tie for first place) - creativity and finally - how destructive it is you have until the end of August to turn in instructables to the destructables group

Sparkler Bombs?

I have been looking at some firework instructables for the Fourth and I noticed that there were no sparkler bomb istructables. What?! I find this strange that you can find them on other sites, but not this site, which is centered around instructions. I can't post one because the ones that I made, due to lack of instructions, did not explode loudly and work properly. I have seen plenty of working ones that a friend made and they work perfectly: you can see the shockwave. The only impressive one I made shot a jet of green flame 10 or so feet in the air, but it's not suppost to do that. Sparkler bombs: simple and easy to make, yet not on Instructables. I know you know how to make them

Video bombing. Stop...it...now...

Unless i constrain myself this will sound like one of Gordon Ramsays shows... ;-) Fu blo he. It's fung time to do something about those bloo videos that stu people are carpet bombing Instructables with. ! Please limit the possibility of posting an unlimited amount of instructables/slideshows/videos per 24 hour period. One (1) per 24 hours are quite enough for anyone that are actually doing something good and not just carpet bombing/spamming crappy videos from Metacafe to get some money. As a temporary solution maybe just banning Metacafe-videos would help remove those obnoxious spammers. Or can you also get payed by videos on Youtube/Google? Talking in friendly manner to these guys doesn't really help. It only fixes (possibly) the problem with one guy, but there will just come more and more of them all the time. (The image of Gordon is stolen from telegraph.co.uk - sorry about that...)

plastic bottle hydrogen bomb ?

Alright what the image depicts is a plastic bottle with two holes in its cap for two wires. The holes are then caulked hot glued etc. to be waterproof. Then you open up the bottle and fill up with water almost to top [farther than in picture]. Then you hook up wires to a battery. What will happen when you do this?A no more room for hydrogen bubbles bottle expands blows upB hydrogen bubbles find a way out C utter failureI have been thinking this over if anyone out there is good at science outhere please help. Also if this does work it would be an awesome time bomb. PS i couldn't figure out how to add notes i use firefox please help.

Wild & Wicked Weapons

Popsci has an awesome compilation of some ridiculous weapons developed by the military. Some of them are old and discontinued, like the Gay bomb (yes, they were considering developing a bomb that turns you gay). And others that are pretty cutting edge, like the railgun that fires a 7 pound shell at 7 times the speed of sound and some remote controlled cyborg spy moths.Here's a link, check it out:Worlds Spookiest Weaponsvia: hack-a-day

Ancient History: Kite bombs

From the article:   We investigate the kite bömb - a never before built medieval siege weapön that dropped bómbs from a kite over cities. We build one and test it with startling new insights and success. We investigate ancient bouncing bõmbs that actually skip across water - ... Source of article.    I saw this on the Ancient Discoveries. Over the weekend I believe, on TV.   The key to stability was a long tail...... Here is a source of information given to me by Kiteman,  concerning the Ancient Kite Bómbs (arial attacks before the airplane or balloon).

timed detonator

Ok, I LOVE airsoft, as many do. I wanted to make a time bomb detonator for different missions, where we could set the time and your squad would have to get there and disarm it. All it would do if we didn't make it in time is set off a smoke bomb. That way everyone would know the game was over. but I do not know where to get a battery powered alarm clock. (the dollar store doesn't sell them) does anyone know where to get one?

Focus an LED

I was wondering if anyone knew how to focus more than one LED (infra red) into one tightish (about 1m at 100ms) beam. This would actually be for a laser tag gun that i would like to make an instructable about. The game is based on these high powered infrared leds that are focused by a 2cm-5cm diameter double convex lens assembly. Snipers obviously need further distance and have a tight beam while others have a much wider beam. The focus can be adjusted by moving the led back or forwards. Having more than one LED may lead to dramatic leaps in range (so it is theorised). I have been told to use cube beam splitter but i don't even know what they are. Thanks community any help is seriously much appreciated Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou
