Donut Party!

It's Friday and I picked up a dozen donuts for the office, but why shouldn't you guys be able to share in the fun? So I'm declaring a donut party. All you have to do is leave a new comment saying, "I want a donut!" and you'll get a donut patch. That's it!UPDATE: OK, this is gonna close down at 4:30 so get 'em if you still want 'em! I'm at almost two dozen so far.UPDATE 2: All right, the donut box has closed! Thanks everyone for taking some donuts and I hope you enjoy your donut patch. Have a great weekend!

Does anyone know how to prepare CAKED DONUTS (not raised)?No donuts here,I miss them too much!Please help..

Hello I spent few months in the sunny Florida and became addicted to DONUTS. We lived close to a bakery,in Indian Rocks Beach,where donuts were homemade fresh daily... they had 2 kinds of donuts: raised and CAKED. Those ( chocolate, cinnamon, glazed, plain, powered,sour cream) were my favourite, and among those "sour cream" were my  number one... Back in Italy I am really starving for them but THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THAT HERE!!! I cook ( my guests always say pretty well), and I wish to try to make them , but  I could find only recipes for the raised ones. Please, help me.... I can't write the name of the place, but if anybody have been in Indian Rocks Beach I am sure they'll know the place I am talking about.... Please, help me... thanks!

tesla coil grounding?

I am building a tesla coil, the first i have ever built. I know that one side of the secondary coil is supposed to be grounded (the other side being the donut). Problem is, i am not clear where to ground it to. The ground socket on the wall outlet? a nail stuck in the ground? the negative terminal on the first transformer? I'd like to have this straightened out.

air tube fitting (seal)

Greetings, I need to pass an air tube (1/8 or 1/4") through a plastic soda bottle (or milk jug) and need to seal the penetration point with some type of rubber gasket -- that the air tube will pass through the center. note: been looking all day. I think I might not be searching on the correct word. I've seen these silly things, but can't seem to locate one today. They are like little rubber donuts with a slit around the center (for wall of jug)

How would you build a moisture harvester?

Yes, the first thing nearly everyone remembers are the moisture farmers on Tatooine in Star Wars. Now, the question is, how would you go about building one? I was thinking about building a small hoop hut out of PVC but instead of of being a split cylinder, I was thinking of a donut shape of PVC covered with plastic. A center pan to catch water for harvesting the water or smaller holes in the drip pan itself for water delivery to the plants.

How to Survive School: A Never-ending thread of tips, tricks and (coff coff) comments

We all went to school sometime, right? I bet more than half of you are still in school. School School Schooooooooool. We all hate it. We all know it. And yet, we still go there. It's like death, but without dying right? Yeah. Actually, no. I went a bit over the top, but it's bad. I'd rather be here, making and sharing instructables than there, doing algebra. So, what I'm trying to say is: SCHOOL IS UNAVOIDABLE BUT IT CAN BE EASIER! That's our motto here and we're STICKIN' to it! (Unless someone comes up with a better one. >.>) So, thanks guys! I'll be posting the rules, guidelines and how to become a "School Basher". I'll let you know EVERYTHING. Thanks.

All people who had an acount on Nsider, come here!

Okay, for those of you have not heard of Nsider, it's the official Nintendo forum on Nintendo.com. (don't go looking for it, it got shut down. >.>) For those of you who HAVE had an account on there before, this is the thread for you. I was SuperMushroomMan (nerdy, eh? -.-) and I had about 3,000 posts. I had friends, mostly everyone did. And then, after almost three years, NOA_ANDY came along and shut us down without even a warning. Then, most moved on to other forums. I didn't go on many. I tried, but couldn't find a lot that met up even to half the standards of Nsider. Then, a couple days ago, I came here and I like it and yeah and ect. ect. ect. If you're from Nsider, please respond, tell me who you were, don't lie about you're post count and yeah. Thanks. Whatever. >.>

How do I stop my neighbor from feeding my diabetic dog? Answered

We bought our house in April '96, and our dog Ted was born in Feb '96. My dog has been diabetic for several years now. His sister Ewok of the same litter has already passed away after suffering from Diabetes and Cancer. At one time Ted weighted 52 pounds (pre-Diabetes)..his last vet visit ( in the mid 20 range) , which for a Chow / Spitz is about 10-12 lbs. under weight. My elderly neighbor is always sneaking him food. I've even talked with his "Diabetic" Wife about this. He will lie to my face saying stuff like " Oh I only gave him a couple Milkbones ". Just today He says he's got some bread for Ted (our dog) . I told him as I approach that I am just going to pick it up and throw it away; Only to find a Glazed Chocolate Donut along with 10 small Milkbones and bread crust. I really am out of options here. Vetsullin is up to $37.00 a vial; and Ted's getting 20 Milgrams x 2 a day. Any suggestions?.....

Free to Good Home

Just an Idea but if someone can market it feel free to, just send me one LOL. There are many medical alert necklaces / bracelets etc out there for people act risk of falling which is a good thing,but the catch to all of them is the monthly cost of subscribing to some monitoring service and $20 a month doesn't sound much but to someone on a fixed income it can be a big deal. It seems reasonable that someone out there could come up with a simple system using off the shelf stuff for a transmitter and receiver set up and hit the button and the receiver dials the first of say three numbers with a recorded message. It would dial out until it received a human, have it wait for the tone of someone pushing one or something and then play a recorded message "Help I've fallen and can't get up" or something and send help to 1313 Mockingbird Lane. You could put a relative or a neighbor first and a second perhaps then 911 or if the person is likely to need fast medical help have it dial straight to 911 but make it simple to program. Make the necklace / pendant play a sound when it's been activated and maybe make a 20 second pause before it dials out so people could cancel accidental triggers by picking up the phone or something, which cancels the tone from the pendant but leave the tone on once the first number has been dialed incase the victim loses consciousness so first alerters can find them quicker. Put a silence button on the receiving unit but disengage the phone silencing option in case the first person there picks up the phone... This seems a simple concept that people could sell for like $40 and I'd bet all my donuts there is a big market for something like this in that range, plus it would help a lot of people by taking away some of the fear of living alone as we age... And we all age. Any thoughts? Could it fly?

Arch Reactor Hackerspace At Critical Mass & Moving

Be a part of Arch Reactor's Move. Help our Hackerspace Double in Size & Increase Our Community Impact Come & help us to grow through our crowdfunding campaign! Learn more about the exciting things the educational non-profit, Arch Reactor is doing in St. Louis, Missouri. http://igg.me/at/archreactorstl/x/11766633 Arch Reactor is Moving Welcome to Arch Reactor, the St. Louis community educational 501(c)(3) nonprofit hackerspace (sometimes also referred to as a makerspace). We are the oldest and largest organization of it's type in the St. Louis area. We specialize in collaborative learning, a DIY attitude, and inspiring interest in S.T.E.M. related fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics). Our focus is on education and teaching classes in electronics, programming, manufacturing, robotics, woodworking, and arts that are open to the general public. We are currently in the process of relocating to a much larger building about one-and-a-half miles away, at 2215 Scott Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri. Where we will be breathing a new breath of educational maker life into an old building and local community. This gem of a building at our soon to become new location has a rich history of being home to the Dixie Cream Donut Flour Company for several decades. The building has basically been used as storage for almost 20 years.  However, the expanse of the first floor interior is in need of a complete overhaul in order to be transformed into the new and updated Arch Reactor. Our members and supporters have been planning, procuring, cleaning, and doing everything we possibly can in order to complete this move project. In order to make such a large undertaking possible, we need your support too! Also, please help by sharing this post on your social media! #education #hackerspace #makermovement #community #building #moving #makerspace

Why "Vortex" for Vortex math and devices?

If you are new to the topic then it might give you a slightly quicker understanding than watching hours of youtube videos.I assume you have seen these various coils that make a sphere shaped magnet spin at insane speeds.They are a good start.You see by normal understanding these Rodin or Vortex coils should not be able to produce a field that rotates that fast.As with a lot of things we tried to use math to explain it in theory and than adjusted the math to match it.Vortex math was born.So how do you explain blue and red to a blind person that never saw anything?I mean in a way they actually know how it would look if they could see?Doesn't work, but we can use a Dyson vacuum cleaner ;)A lot of "tornados" add up to one giant super tornado.Spinning so fast that "all" the dirst stays behind and only clean air comes out.As in nature all the weather cells add up to one that is more powerful than the combined single ones.The tornados that form the term vortex are around the coils.But also around the entire donut as well as every single strand of wire.In any good vortex the rotational speed increases towards the center and bottom of the vortex.You can try that with some floating stuff when you drain your bathtub or sink.Try to imagine and endless tornado that runs around every wire like a spiral.The coil itself adds another spin vector to it and increases the moving speed or the single tornado.Combined it adds up to a very strong tornadoe moving very fast around in the coil pack.As this also creates a rotating field like another tornado in the donut shape it all gets twisted up.Physics as we know it won't fully explain these effects.Vortex devices that produce electricity are usually coils in a special winding configuration and pattern.Like we try to eliminate certain things with basket coils in the HF area a Rodin or Vortex coil tries to utlise these otherwise unwanted stray effects and interferences.Overunity is another term people like to use here but I leave it up to you if such a things is phsically possible with an electrical system.Vortex math tries to explain all these things demonstrated in experiments.However I found two slight flaws in the common approch.1. Only two dimension used.Unlike the coils the simplified Vortex math only operates in two dimensions.A circle instead of a sphere if you like.2. Again, unlike the coil harmony and resonance are neglected.It seems in some cases people try to draw a circle just with straight lines.While in reality you have a never ending, resonant "stream" in three or to be precise four dimensions.Is it the chicken and egg problem?Yes and no.You can only calculate something if you can fully understand it or exactly replicate it in reality.Vortex coils are just way to interpret theories and get some sort of results.And those results are the real problem.We can measure magnatic fields in strenght and direction even frequency.However we can neither make them visible in real time not measure mixed or entangled fields properly.We "see" Mars is our "red planet" but in reality it just the atmosphere, the surface is not red at all in most places.NASA has enough problems to calculated missions to outer space with enough accuracy.Just imagine they would have to do it while considering that around every path our planets make is another spinning "distraction"....That is exactly what Vortex math tries to do while eliminating common math bit by bit.You can see and hear in 3 dimensions.Maybe you are also good in drawing something in 3D on your compterscreen or 3D headset.But how many here could predict the path of a baseball in 3D like they do when watching a game?Depending on your viewing angle you might be way off....Try to know or calculate where exactly the ball is at any given monet in time and how fast it spins in which direction.....Our brains are not trained to think like this!Even if we construct things like a dome we prefer to have straight features.Sure manufacturing is one thing that needs to be affordable.But try to just calculate the support structure if all is actually fully round like a sphere should be.We avoid what is considered higher dimensions as much we can.To calculate a distance in 3D it still seems easier to use two 2D models to add up instead of true vectors.Again only through technology like computer we are able to simulate, understand and actually calculate what we need.Where we ventured around the globe and into our solar system our math was left behind.Finding workaround and good enough approximations still seems the way to go.Instead actually evolving our math to our needs we just add more and more complex formulas and calculations.To fully understand vortex math you need to let go and start thinking in 4 dimensions instead of just 2.Oh, sorry, you might be new to this...Number 4 is time of course.

Answer life's burning questions - win the thanks of many (and an Instructables t-shirt)

This is no longer the current Burning Questions Forum Topic. Please refer to The New and Official Burning Questions Instructable from now on for all matters related to the Burning Questions Contest, group, and discussion. The original forum topic is preserved below for reference.People search for stuff at Instructables all the time. Sometimes they find what they're looking for, sometimes they don't. But there are a few common how-tos that come up often enough for we stewards of Instructable-dom to wonder, "why don't we have an Instructable on that?"The answer is of course, because no one has written one. But you, noble Instructable citizen, can change that. Below I've listed out a number of popular 'wanted' Intructables. The bounty: 1 Instructables t-shirt and the thanks of many (including our own.)A regular Instructable about this has been posted, but keep your ideas, thoughts, and comments coming!Instructables most wanted:how to braid hair (your own)how to braid hair (someone else's)how to cut hair (someone else's - Steve Blair already did how to cut your own)how to clean a mattressHow to snowboardHow to make wineHow to make soapHow to paint a carHow to make a pinataHow to cure a headacheHow to do a donutHow to drift (Automotive drifting, not just wandering around aimlessly)How to surfHow to paint (Like, art and stuff.)How to DanceLearn pokerHow to make rubber molds (Suggested by Honus)How to cast with resin (Suggested by Honus)The only rules are: The Instructables have to be of good quality. (Ie, they have to be detailed, contain pictures, and actually provide a good answer to the question.) If they're lousy (and you know damn well when they are), no t-shirt for you.They have to be titled as above (or with very minor variation). Why? Because that's what people are looking for. If you write a great Instructable on how to build a hovercraft, but title it "poly-surface air powered vehicular lifting machine" no one is ever going to know you wrote it.They have to be new Instructables. (We might be willing to make some exception to this, should have you *really* answered one of these questions in the past, but titled your Instructable poorly. However, new Instructables > old Instructables.)Everything else is fair game. Generally, there's going to be only one winner, but if there's a good faith effort by two people at the same time, we'll call both of you winners. Really, we're not going to be sticklers on this. The idea is to help others, so if you can contribute, please do.I've created a group to house everything, called Burning Questions. If you want to get the shirt, you've got to add it to the group.When we've determined an Instructable is of high enough quality, we'll add a link to it below, in the "Answered Questions" section. Before that, the topic is still open! Are there questions you want answered? Comments?
