Recently, I saw someone use a variation the phrase "You have no right to say that". Location and who said that are not important. Anyways, my bull detector went off, so I just decided to post this topic. For all the people who have used this phrase before, guess what? They still said it. The receivers of this skewered phrase obviously don't care if they don't have the right to say it, which brings me to this train of thought: Why do we call it a "Right"? Most times people say it as if it was not a legal right at all, but matter of fact is, that most conversation on the internet is not really anything to involve cops or authorities in (Well, at least the conversations with the phrase I mentioned above), so why are we treating this as something straight out of the constitution or bill of rights or whatever? Offtopic: I kept the poster of the comment and the location of the comment anonymous for a reason. It would be smart for him/her to not blow it with a poorly written comment. Why I posted this topic: There have been a bunch of phrases on the internet (some offensive with cuss words and whatnot) that don't make sense when you go by their definition, and I felt like ruining one of them.

Hello there all, As you might be aware, us here in the UK are having a fair amount of snow, which as you might also be aware, causes our country to slowly collapse... Since those of you who live in Canada and northern states of the USA are quite a bit more used to the snow, I wondered if the collective genius of Instructables could give us some tips on dealing with snow... Things which'd be interesting to know about: -Footwear -Driving -Clothing -Shovelling I think you get the picture. Cheers!

I want to build something like a CNC. But using a pen instead of CNC's drill so that I can use it to draw image. I searched a lot about G-code, but they are all for vectorgraph. So I need help if there is any software that can translate the bitmap to G-code? THANKS

I'm pretty sure that I'm good until April of 2013, but I got two emails stating that my pro membership is expiring. I passed the first one off as a bug but now I'm a little concerned. Are the ones I receive as gifts, sitting in my pro membership tab, have an expiration date? Thank you. Zurichko

I want to buy a compound microscope, i want to be able to check for ecoli and parasite eggs. i figure 2000 power may work, correct me if not. would really like to be able to monitor or take pics via pc, but may be out of price range. looking at $300 us tops ,unless a super good used deal for around $500 comes by. i never took biology ,well since high school, so am out of ouch of what i want. ebay has new ones of a chinese brand, have to look up the name, but prefer used for better deal unless people know that the new ebay scopes A??? are a good deal. are scopes up-gradable , meaning, could i get a scope and add the camera attachment later? thanks, pure noob here, i know i dony want clips, and i know certain lights = cheaper from my research.

Apologies if this has been asked before, but I've looked around and haven't been able to find anything dealing with the IP rights associated with the JD Independence Project contest winners. Typically Instructables contests don't run into this issue as they are dealing with already-created content and as such the IP is either available already or made available by nature of the public release of information (rendering the content ineligible for patent, at least under US IP law). With this particular contest, however, the prize is meant to preemptively fund a project, business, etc - so there's definitely the possibility of IP creation. How would Instructables/JD deal with this and what assurances do entrants have that IP generated as a result of the contest remains their own?

I've had an interest in how physicists obtain deuterium for their experiments (especially those dealing with nuclear fusion). I know it comes in small quantities in water, in the form of deuterium oxide ('heavy water') . It also comes in the form of 'heavy methane' also. I've looked at several patents dealing with extracting deuterium from such sources. Is their any do-it-yourself (DIY) techniques that could use every day materials to obtain deuterium?

My family likes to play a particular card game called Phase 10. The way it works is that after each hand, the deck is handed to the next person to deal from. We're often so busy chatting/having fun we forget exactly whose turn it is to deal. Not a big deal of course, but all our attempts to keep track have failed. I thought it would be cute to set up a little strip of LEDs and have them be controlled by a button. Push button, next LED lights up, with each LED assigned to a player so we know whose turn it is to deal next. There's nothing commercial I could find, and I don't know enough about LEDs, controllers, etc, to do so - so I'm looking for someone who can explain what has to be done (and the materials) so I can build it... or if someone wants to take on the project and get paid for it too, that works. It's meant to be a christmas present for my father (who's the worst one of all about remembering whose turn it is) so - that's the estimated deadline. Anyone got info for me on how to set this up?

I've been thinking about this as right now the goddamn drunk that came to the door a few hours ago is still rapping on the door, he's a special example because he's caught in this loop, he came asking for someone called steve and wasn't a problem, I sent him on his merry way and he came back in half an hour, oblivious to the fact that we'd had that conversation, he was however agressive this time, he tried to push his way in to the house and got a good smack to the jaw, door closed. He then came back again, in a friendly mood and started the conversation again, I'm now ignoring him - usually they take the hint the first time... Anyway I was wondering if anybody would like to collaborate on an 'ible about dealing with them, see I've had a variety of random interactions with drunks, from where I used to work to random happenings and down and the local, I'd probably be able to persuade my friend who's a barman to add some wisdom, and maybe my mate the security guard who is bored anyway... Anybody interested? If I've missed a life changing and amazing 'ible on such things then it may not be needed but haven't seen one on this subject anyway...

Ok, This is a bit of a crisis. My oldest son, Skunkpunk, turns 15 today! I turned 37 last week. I'm feeling OLD. I only realized that I was no longer a teenager a couple of years ago, and now I'm having to deal with being a parent of a teen. For me, 15 was a big year. Learning to drive, my first serious girlfriend, etc. I'm not ready to deal with Skunkpunk's teenage-roller-coaster. So anyway, If anyone has any advice for us we could use it. I need advice on how to parent a teen, and he needs advice on how to survive the teen years.

Due to the huge response to Supersoftdrink's Sensory Seeker and Counterchangeracing's One Legged Therapy Stool from a huge variety of people looking for ideas and help for themselves or their children, I believe there is a need for a designated category. Nothing medical or diagnostic but of ideas that have worked for people, how to make or use equipment, gadgets etc. When you look at the two sites Ive referred to you will see that many different needs and "issues" are asked about. I stress no diagnosis or medical at all. Please give this your consideration.

Hey everybody, I've been looking for a good source for cheap LEDs for a project I'm working on. I want to replace 14 different 60W halogen bulbs with home-built LED lights. The reason for home-built is that the halogens burn out like crazy, but the light fixture looks nice, and isn't going to be replaced. The halogens put out an estimated 500-700 lumens (from the google research I did)So.... I'm looking for the best deal for white leds per lumen. the best deal I've found so far is:http://www.phenoptix.co.uk/Ultra_Bright_White_SUPERFLUX_LEDs_3000mcd_p/whi-flux-3000.htmat .021cents/lumen from the brightness calculator http://led.linear1.org/lumen.wizbut considering the quantity I want.... there's not even enough room to fit those LEDs on the fixture (due to the large case size)or if I buy 1000 of them (about the quantity I'm looking for) I'd be getting a slightly better deal, but still coming in at $120, not to mention they still don't fit. The physical space for the leds is a cylinder with a diameter of about 30mm and a height of about 70mm. Any Ideas/suggestions for cheap white LEDs?Thanks!-Zaen

I had an idea to re-use the trunks of Christmas trees my neighbors are throwing away. I sawed off the thick part of the trunk and removed the branches from it. But now I have lots of oozy sap that makes the wood sticky and unpleasant. Any suggestions on what to do? If I stain it or coat in polyurethane will that prevent more sap from oozing out? Ideally i want to slice one trunk into coasters/trivets, keeping the exterior bark intact. The other trunk might become the base for a side table or something similar. Or maybe I'll just hollow it out like a cup and use it as a pencil holder. Thanks for your help! Josh

Hey there, I am thinking of building a quad copter, but am not quite sure, how they work, hopefully someone can clarify this for me. Do all the motors connected run at the same speed, then to move directions you increase the speed of the motor that deals with that direction. For example left control button will increase the speed for the left motor causing it to move left? Also will I be able to get a working prototype using those components below? 4 x 7mm Brushed Motors 4 x propellers. 1 x Arduin UNO 1 x HC-05 Arduino bluetooth module Am planning on dealing with the controls by writing a android app that sends command to the Bluetooth module on the arduino.

As we all know (at least most) you can get free cameras at places that recycle disposable cameras. After having my fun hooking then in parallel to attempt coil gun, or just melting holes in water-filled soda cans. But I wanted to try to hook some in series, so instead of 320V, i got 640. I know series adds up so both are fully charged to 320V, but heres my question. 1: Can they ever blow seeing that the output is 640 yet their rated 320? 2: If i discharged between then, can i have a greater chance of them exploding comparing to parallel hooked?

Hi! I have a project that needs to sense whether water is flowing through a pipe. I bought a water flow sensor on Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LVWHJP0/) thinking I could use it as a basic switch, however, it's got a hall effect sensor and I don't understand how to deal with the voltage output. Measuring from the pulse signal to ground, the sensor swaps the polarity each time it's triggered: With water running, I see a positive voltage. Turn the water off and back on, voltage goes negative. My control system can't deal with this. What I need is a simple circuit to turn the sensor's pulse output into a contact closure. Can anyone help? Thank you!

Costco is selling the Chumby One for $99 shipped. It's a good deal if you just want to use it for its basic features and an even better one for using all the widgets or if you want to hack it and use it for many other purposes such as making your own 3G router. Chumby One at Costco via adafruit

I want to swing a locket on a chain like a pendulum and I want to minmise the friction experienced where the chain attaches to the supporting post. What sort of bearing or similar device should I use for this? Ideally it should be available in a bronze/dirty brass colour but I guess I can deal with it if it isn't.

I'm thinking about making a tesla coil with my gang of kids. We have done experiments with inductance (made a motor) and capacitance (Leyden jar). Oddly enough I'm slightly nervous dealing with that amount of voltage. Any thoughts?

Well I'm looking around but I really don't have the time or the patience to continue. I have homework to get to so I'm hoping you guys can find me some good deals on K'nex. I'm looking for something that -Is no more than $60 or so. I really don't feel like spending a lot. I don't plan on starting up a huge stockpile. I simply want enough to build practical weapons and maybe two smaller weapons at time. -Contains some black/clear rods. I only have one clear rod. I had another but I lost it. -Has some exotics. I don't care if I only get like 2 of each but I'd love some more hinges and ball joints. Some more black Ys wouldn't hurt either. Small wheels would be a nice addition but I don't require them. Some blue caps would also be lovely. Small bendies are nice too. -Obviously I'd like a nice mix of normal pieces. Green and white rods, and yellow connectors are my main concern though. I could use more of everything but those three are probably the most used in the majority of weapons. They're usually the only pieces I run out of. Metallics would be nice though I don't care what colors they are -Finally, I don't want bricks or minis. Almost every set in town is half bricks and/or minis and I don't feel like paying extra for those. If some are included, fine as long as I get a what would be a good deal without them. If I finally get some more pieces, I'll be able to build guns made by others and start some new projects. I've been looking forward to reviewing guns in a strict manner.
