This is a good read.This article argues why the world wont end in 2012, as the mayans predicted.No Doomsday in 2012It calmed my superstitions.

Ok so I have an (unoriginal) idea to create a doomsday launch pad. With all the bells and whistles, a sequence of switches that activates a usb or power outlet. Really the use is just for fun (and it would be) but as a noob to electronics, soldering, and pretty much everything i would love some help. This product already exists (just without as many switches and goodies) but what's the fun in just buying it?! I'm new to instructable so forgive my ignorance if this isn't how ideas are proposed or if this project already exists (I couldn't find it). Thank you in advance for any help :D

I found this on gizmdo, its a Rap Video filmed at the LHC which pretty-much sums up what there doing there.Watch the video its funny and informative ! Doubble WHAMMY ! anchorman referenceIf you want to sing along you can find the lyrics here, along with video download linkshttps://www.msu.edu/~mcalpin9/lhc_rap/largehadron.htmlOh and you can donate some of your computers downtime to help the guys at LHC do their calculations http://lhcathome.cern.ch/lhcathome/

I'm sure most of you have seen the USB doomsday device usb hub on thinkgeek, I'm looking to make my own, anyone have any suggestions on where to begin? I have a usb hub so i assume ill just need to rig up some lights and switches to a box, can't imagine it'll be that tough.

Hi, Just a quick review on the Mr. Doomsda gun! Overall score: 9.5 / 10 Ease of use: 9.5 / 10 Just a slide back, pull trigger and pull trigger mechanism. Ease of build: 8.5 / 10 Some hard bits here and there. Range: 8 / 10 Probably Short - Medium range. Painfulness: 5 / 10 Only hurts on bare skin, point blank.

Once again someone thinks the world's gonna end soon. Someone is suing CERN because their afraid that the new atom smasher (Large Hadron Collider (LHC) along the French-Swiss border) is going to create a black hole and suck up the Earth in a month or so. I think its gonna be another failed doomsday theory, like it probably will be.

It had to happen.Scientists from the University of Ottowa have modelled the effects of a classical zombie plague, as part of a model in epidemiology.They looked at what would happen if uninfected humans attempted to cure or quarantine zombies, and the effects of retaliation:We show that only quick, aggressive attacks can stave off the doomsday scenario: the collapse of society as zombies overtake us all.It looks like we might have a need for all those zombie Instructables after all!PDF of the paper, via BBC story.

A Poem I write to you of my observations About certain peoples' latest creations Yes this has been said before About this endless comment war The Jamalam and of course I.A.C Have seen the same things as me But they both wrote in regular style Which never stuck: not versatile So I write to you in poetry But the views are same, we all agree But my rhymes will stick into your brain The frontier in this web campaign See I notice that our knex community Lacks complete and utter immunity To spite, hate and lack of respect To many peoples' knex project It's mainly guns, but there are others too That are attacked in a ridiculous taboo That's taboo as in prejudice, you see It's gone beyond reasonable degree K’nex is a toy, don’t forget That fun really is the main object So why all the hate so suddenly It puts ya down, can’t you see? People like me, and naming others too Get ratings based not on what but who Why rate so low based on the person The situation is starting to worsen Insane Creator is one of those Who gets nought with a five in endless blows Upon his models: they ain't that bad It's who he is, it's really quite sad See why would you rate if you had no idea Of the thing you are rating: It's still unclear What would posess you to continue this theme In lowering someone's self esteem It's not just ratings, to me they ain't worth it It's the comments people think, write and submit "What the heck? This is so bad" to name an example But it's one of hundreds: a mere sample Regulars are praised, no matter what they do IAC; Killer~safe cracker to name a few True, they are good, I won't put them down But what about the other side of this web town? If I should have posted Mr. Doomsday Or put that cablecar on display They would never have got to where they are now Because I ain't as regarded, why should we allow? Allow for this rudeness and all this spite To continue all day and all through night We were never like this, can you remember? Time for a little bit of nostalgia? Once upon a time, the community was Supportive and friendly simply because We wanted friendships and much better outcome And to spitefulness? we never did succumb! So I say please return to how we were Helping every other entrepreneur Not attacking others like wild bulls: Please, “show a smile instructables!” -Lowney

Lets pretend that you, intrepid reader-of-postings, have won the lottery. What are you going to blow it on? Beer? Collections of earwaxes from around the world? Bottle-feeding orphan baby whales? Heck no. You're gonna buy you some welders and a CNC machine and a whole slew of electronic bits and bobs. You'll have laser cutters and plasma cutters and nail cutters and cutters to put a cutting edge on your other cutters. You're gonna have goddamn robots that make MORE robots. A drill? _singular_??? I'll take nine, thank you very much! If not, then this isn't really a job posting for you. Still here? Here's the deal. We're desperately dull people. Wretched, really. All we want in life is to make electronic components. No no, not flying electric cars. Just the parts, thank you very much. Our CUSTOMERS, on the other hand, won't stop taking our parts and doing progressively sillier things with them. They couldn't be content to make a house. They want a WALKING house. "Hello, yes, I have this robot cow that we use to train for rodeo. Its been on the shelf for ten years since the robo-goring..." they say. My poor children get launched into orbit, sunk to the bottom of the ocean, dragged across antarctica. They've powered chairs, couches, bomb disposal robots and bomberman replicas. I shudder to think what ill-advised schemes we'll be helping to perpetrate when my top secret new (and entirely wholesome) projects are done. It fills me with apoplexy just to consider it. Obviously uninteresting people like we lot can't test products for interesting circumstances. What we need is someone who would salivate at the directive of "Find some new way to use these shelves full of robot parts. Make it dramatic. Make it a great writeup. The machine shop is to the left. CNCs on the right. Welding is down the hall, electronics is in the middle. Woodworking shop is at the end of the building. Climbing wall is by the bathroom if you get bored. Here's some budget. Do crazier mechatronic things than our customers do. Report back immediately if you accidentally make a roller coaster or a doomsday device." We certainly do not already have bumper cars, go kart tanks, flame throwers, radio control office chairs, orbotrons and/or backyard roller coasters here. Because those might be interesting. Which we are not. Anyway, that is a real job posting. For a real job. For which you could be paid. An intern would be okay, a full time creator-of-things would be even better. You could submit a resume, but afor real consideration I'd need to see a portfolio of projects. We don't really have every tool ever made, but that's just because I took some of them home for the weekend and haven't brought them back. Honestly. We're an electronics manufacturer with a mortising machine. Um, because mortises are good, solid, red blooded American woodworking joints. Very boring. Yup. Downsides? We're in beautiful Ohio, home of the low cost of living and, um, did I mention the cost of living is low? Anyway, company website is www.dimensionengineering.com It is a very boring website. Because, you know, very boring people. jobs@ to send portfolios, resumes, or well wishes.
