My brother brakes alot of things when he is mad could someone help me stop him? (my parents don't do anything at all! Answered

When my little brother gets mad he starts to brake things including my things when i try to stop him (i have to use force) he starts crying then I get in trouble. Can some one help me stop him because my parents don't do anything except ask him to take a pill for his ADHD but half the time he doesn't take it and when he asks me if he can play one of my games and i say no he starts trying to brake things and continually asks me. Could some one please help? Part of the problem is he is smart enough to not get in trouble. ps: sorry for the poor worded question

HELP needed with Brother P-Touch 1400 Label Maker.

The last time I used this machine (a couple months ago) everything worked just fine. I knew I wouldn't be using it again for a while so I removed the batteries (I always do). But today I tried to use it, and won't turn on. So I ran out, and bought new batteries, and still nothing. I looked in the manual, and it was no help. I couldn't find help on Google, so now I'm asking here......any ideas? Is there a RE-SET button?   Thanks in advance Mary?

Improve a 1993 Brother-brand Word Processor?

I'd like to make my 1993 Brother word processor useful. It looks like a laptop with a small black-text-only screen and handles a few basic programs (Tetris, word processor, spreadsheets). I've seen great Instructables for later laptops, but nothing that would work for mine, since it doesn't have a color screen and probably has a pretty small memory bank. Ideas?

How do I get my little brother to like taking baths regularly?

My little brother plays in the mud everyday while I'm at school and my mom is cooking and cleaning. When I come home from school he runs to hug me before I reach the door. Then he runs inside before I start complaining about the mud on my Versace outfit. But when my mom calls for him to take a bath so we can eat supper, he runs around the house screaming. Until he gets to Jack, my older brother. Jack has a way to get kids to calm down a little, but he can't get him to take a bath. I get so pissed off when he gets my clothes dirty because I worked for a year before I can save enough money to buy it and still have a lot left in my account to help with the bills and stuff like that.

fixing my brothers theremin

My brother who has no electronics history bought a theremin kit from an Australian electronics store called jay car and or course it didn't work when he finished it, sp he gave it to me but in the electronics department i can only build kits with all the instructions there for me i dont know how to fix a problem with one. I have a multimeter here but im still completely not sure how to use it to find out whats wrong with the kit, it sounds dumb but i could post a picture of it but im pretty scure that would be pointless cos you wouldn't be able to see the components values. Can anyone give me some help in trying to figure out how to fix it cos i dont want to have to rebuy it and built it for him

Conoy Township in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania; is voting to avoid flying surveillance remote controlled aircrafts above their skies. In a time when the United States government approves the use of drones to spy on the civilian population, I have found interesting how people are responding. This municipal ordinance definitely will not stop the use of drones on this area if deemed necessary for our national security but I wonder if this could be the start of a trend.
