rfid chip in food

I have had some problems with illegal rfid chipping by the avalon station los angeles county sheriffs. i have had to throw away alot of my belongings not knowing which item or items were chipped. this rfid frequency number was given to a motorcycle gang on the mainland ( i live on santa catalina island off the coast of southern california).........and this gang attacked and tried to murder me across state lines when i went on a trip to northern california/oregon.............these guys stalked and attempted to kill me at least 15-20 times during an eight month terrifying ordeal!  there are some "bad cops" on the force that did not want me to return to the island; as i was going to be a major figure in some lawsuits that are being prepared at this moment. gang officer david v mertens played hardball with a very innocent little resort town of avalon (google his name). he tried to tell the world that on the "misty" island of catalina that there were gangs here on the island.....which is hogwash as everybody in this little community knows everybody else; sometimes too much.......it is like having 3000 brothers and sisters! so after his little pr stunt........hey; there is a need for him on the island. he got kicked off of the island as he does not belong in a resort town. i am a person who has lived in the wilderness for the better part of 30 years; and am very hard to locate, capture or worse...........but they tried twice on the island using air assets (one a grey unmarked military helicopter and two days later a little blue and white private airplane)....but to no avail. they came "straight to me" in the canyons and forests of the island and in the forests of oregon and then back again in the forests of lake tahoe...........no one has ever found me like that........especially a bunch of city boys. when they don't capture me we all walk around town as if nothing happened!  my questions are how to detect these chips and destroy them on my backpack, other belongings and even chips that may very well have been inserted into some food i found on the backside of the island just after a sheriffs helicopter had taken off from the remote area. i thought the chopper was putting food in places just in case some of the survivors of a coastguard airplane/helicopter crash found their way to shore; but it might of been meant for me. since returning to the island i saw someone chip my day pack that i left unattended during a mountain run............so as an experiment i went out three days ago and hid the pack  in the local hills,  when i returned home i realized that i had lost my knife out of it's holster.  i go back 30 minutes later to look...........and guess what?........the pack was already gone!  then some sort of personnel folks came back for me; that i saw way down below me in that spot......looking directly at me! i always get hunches to get up and go before anything major is about to happen; which is how i got away from the motorcycle gang and the sheriffs that backed the gang cop. any suggestions you might give me in regards to these issues would be greatly appreciated.  thank you for your time. pack below

Do you think we are going to destroy are planet with GLOBAL WARMING

OK well most of the question is in the title. But I have herd things like there wont be anymore snow in fifty years, the polar ice caps are being destroyed, the ozone is covered in holes and that ethanol is actually worse for the enviorment than gasoline because it produces more carbon emissions. And to go along with that question are we getting to smart ? A little to technologically advanced.

How to Destroy 4700 Brand New Cars

As someone who feels that given enough time I can fix anything, this is one of those stories that really pains me. In 2006, a car freighter transporting 4,700 new cars from Japan to the US listed to its side as the crew was adjusting the ship's ballast. The ship leaned over to approximately 60 degrees, but was eventually righted in an operation that cost the life of one of the team members. Wired has the best coverage of how the ship was saved: High Tech Cowboys of the Deep Seas: The Race to Save the Cougar Ace. Having saved the cars, Mazda was now faced with the dilemma of what to do with them. Turning down options to donate, or in some cases even sell, the cars to fire extrication trainers, auto repair schools, or even Hollywood for stunts, Mazda has decided to carefully render each part inoperable -- cutting all four wheels in half, for example! -- shred the cars, and recycle the steal -- probably into new cars. They even created a purpose-built machine to detonate all six airbags at once. Be amazed and a little disgusted all at the same time by checking out the Wall Street Journal's coverage A Crushing Issue: How to Destroy Brand-New Cars and video:

Killing Mosquitos with Auto Targeting LASERS!

Houston, we have bug zappers! No really, just this time with lasers! I was surfing through Hack-a-Day, and I came across this. These devices identify a mosquito by the frequency of its beating wings. Once identified, the device aims a laser and destroys the little blood sucker. That seems simple enough, so: Do you think that this could be accomplished by a DIY for under $100? think about, we may have a really useful Instructable on our hands.

Erase a dvd+R using software

Ok so we all know its possible to write a dvd+r up to the limit. (one time only of course) So if it can write data once, that why cant we have it ignore the data or headers and just write all 1's or just random garbage to the disk to destory it? It actually sounds cooler than breaking it... If there is software than please provide a link (if its free/open source)

I'm going to destroy my ipod touch, how should I do it?

Okay, so I got an ipod touch from my friend for thirty bucks, 3rd gen, with a broken touchscreen.  About two weeks later, (I'm not sure how exactly) the logic board got fried and now all it does is rapidly overheat.  So, the screen still looks fine.  I don't know exactly how many votes  I'm going to get, but I would sure like to have some suggestions, any input would be great.  I will post pictures of the un-damaged ipod when I get ahold of my mom's camera. I AM DONE!!! https://www.instructables.com/community/I-destroyed-my-ipod/

VHS Camcorder, Overhead projector, Boomboxes, and some other stuff.

Hey, I recently contacted my school (I'm in 9h grade) asking if they had any old equipment i could have, and they said yes. I have decided that i would *only* take 2 overhead projectors (you put a 'transparent sheet on, and projects) 3-4 boomboxes, and most importantly, a VHS camcorder. I just couldn't let that camcorder go to waste, so i decided i would take it, but now I'm wondering, what can i do with it? Also, for the overhead projectors, any ideas what i could use them for? I know, i can get the mirrors/lenses/bulbs, and fan and everything in them, but is there anything i could use them for (i know about LCD overhead projector, anything else?)

What is the best FASTEST way to destroy your laptop?

Yes there are hundreds of ways that take time.  See, I have a friend who has done some internet things that he is concerned have not completely been deleted from his hard drive.  He is expecting a knock on his door any day, with feds coming to take all of his computer equipment away.  He is afraid that the csi's will be able to undelete these files.  Will dropping the laptop in a sink of hot soapy water destroy it?  Or maybe alcohol or bleach or something?  Any suggestions?  He does not want to destroy it until the last minute, cause he just does not have $$ to buy another one.

Massive Rubber Band Ball Destroys car

I was just surfing the interwebs and i found this video.Some guys drive to the top of a hill with a massive rubber band ball in the back of their van and then roll the ball down the hill hoping to hit the car, The ball bounces as it goes down the hill so the first time they roll it they only hit the back of the car, the second roll is a miss but the 3rd time they land it right in the side leading to a surprising amount of damage.Video is a bit bright to begin with but it gets better.Skip to 1:55 for the best hit.

I had a SQL that got destroyed by someone re-initializing the disks on a RAID array and destroying the data. Answered

I have managed to restore the DB from a very old backup, and I tried replacing the MDF and LDF files with the ones that I recovered from a backup.  The problem is that the new MDF and LDF files were not detached in the copy that I have, so when I start up the SQL server EM shows the DB as Loading/Suspect.  I have tried restoring the database using sp_attach_db, sp_attach_single_file_db.  I get the error The log for database DBName is corrupt' when I use sp_attach_db, and when I use sp_attach_single_file_db I get the error 'Database 'DBName' cannot be opened because some of the files could not be activated'

Project pinebeetle

Alright, well the mountain pine beetle is really eating up a ton of forests, and it's releasing a LOT of Co2 into the air. So I decided, since new trees would just get destroyed by the pine beetle again, why not find a crop (Preferably edible, inedible is just as good) that absorbs the most Co2 in the world (Next to trees). Basically, I'm looking to offset the Co2 that's being released in the forest by growing another crop. Once all the forests are destroyed, the pinebeetle population will die down, and we can replant the forests. Any suggestions?
