April Fools!

Hah! I tricked you into clicking the link, and I will now suck out your soul!!! MUHAHA! Anyway... I really like the robot's antics. Google's "Gmail Custom Time" was funny too. Anywhere else? Gizmondo seems to be using Mr. T in all of their stories...

April Fools at School

So, I found out that my school doesn't use a standard clock system - instead we have this high-tech radio synced system, and every single clock has an antenna on its back. I was thinking of having some serious fun tomorrow, but that would require me stealing a clock to take home with me - dismantling it, and reverse-engineering it. I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard, but I don't know if I could have done it in one night..... That would have made an awesome April fools joke! There's so much potential! I'll probably end up wearing a Jester hat and my LED t-shirt, though. So much for that fun (perhaps as a senior prank?)

DTV Don't be fooled!

Just an announcement. I believe that, as an instructables member, I have the duty to share this info. Some people may, and probably, already know this. CABLE/SATELLITE subscribers will NOT BE EFFECTED. There are a lot of news and ads going around scaring people that their TVs will go black on midnight Feb 17, 2009 if they do buy DTV tuners. I am just worry that a lot of people are gonna be cheated b/c they are not explicitly saying (or warning) that this will not effect cable/satellite subscribers, only those that use local public broadcasts (antennas). OK. Now spread the news! *If this announcement has help you please BUMP this topic (since others may still be fooled)

I hate April Fool .......

.I just wanted to say it : I hate April Fool ...............I'm perfectly aware that when it's about humour and jokes, I can be a real retarded kid or a real little rascal (sometimes both at the same time)...For instance, just to give you a sample, when I wrote "I hate April Fool", the "funny hemisphere" of my brain immediately computed a risky (and probably stupid and immature) pun :"I hate April Fool ........ 'cause this girl is a real pain !"Well ...... and paradoxically, despite I find many April Fool jokes funny, I hate this day.Why ?Because :1) every little "unexpected" (and plausible) information seems suspicious.2) some extremely serious persons (teammates or superior) tries to be cool only this day, and become ridiculously serious again the day after ......... and paradoxically, their April Fool sense of humour is as low as their seriousness is high the rest of the year (this is a great source of disappointment to see how stupid can be someone you respected for his/her intelligence).3) I don't remember #3 .... who really care about it anyway ???Voila ...That was my April Fool rant.Wow ! I feel better know !=o]

Coming Soon: April Fools Day Contest

Next week we'll be starting an April Fools Day Contest. So start thinking of some clever ideas for a prank that you'd like to pull on someone else. Prizes will be supplied by ThinkGeek. The only rule is that there has to be something that you make for the prank. Any idea that you have for the prank needs to be fleshed out as your own project with original photos. Pictures of the prank being pulled are even better! More details about the contest and prizes to be announced later this week. UPDATE: The contest page is here.

Have you ever had a microwave oven talk to you before? Answered

Mine likes to say, "Hi." A picture of this is attached.  There is indicator light that says, "Hi." When my microwave says, "Hi" to me, I say, "Hello! Hello microwave oven! How are you today?" And it just keeps saying, "Hi, Hi, Hi," until... it is done cooking. When it's done cooking it makes beeping noise, and then it tells me what time of day it is, and then it acts like a clock, telling me the time of day, and it keeps doing that until when I tell it I want to cook something again. I wish a happy, happy April Fools' Day unto everyone!!!

Tauntaun Sleeping Bag

Once again, ThinkGeek has hatched an April Fool's joke that sparked so much interest, they're now looking into production rights.This awesome Tauntaun sleeping bag was just one of several spoof products that TG game up with to prank its audience. In response to their onslaught of letters, they're promising their best to bring it life. From ThinkGeek:Use the glowing lightsaber zipper pull on the Tauntaun sleeping bag to illustrate how Han Solo saved Luke Skywalker from certain death in the freezing climate of Hoth by slitting open the belly of a dead Tauntaun and placing Luke inside the stinking (but warm) carcass. If your kids don't change their tune on which Star Wars film is the greatest ever, you can do your best Jar Jar impression until they repent. via: consumerist

How do I see how many votes my instructable has for a contest? Answered

So I'm entered in the April fools day project: prank contest with my ible www.instructables.com/id/April-fools-joke-Melting-popsicle-paperweight/ and I was wondering how many votes I have received. I know that people who have voted for you can view the number but since it is considered "not fair play" to vote for your own ible I won't do that. So my question is how many votes do I have en where can I see it? Also does a vote for your own ible count or not? (I read somewhere that that vote just doesn't get count)

How to make a Chaff Grenade?

This is all the info i found out about Chaff Grenades...... "Chaff Grenades are a miniature chaff dispenser. Chaff consists of small aluminum strips that are specifically designed to confuse radar frequencies, and normally used by aircraft to fool missile radar. The individual strips are cut in such a way that they wreak havoc with radar's transmitted frequencies. The Chaff Grenade is a combination of a wide-dispersal system for such strips and an electronic jamming system similar in effect to a magnetic pulse; it fools most electronic devices in the current room, including security cameras, radios, and some types of UAV.

How do you fool a vehicle in to thinking it has a trailer with electric brakes attached? Answered

I am working on a vehicle and trailer testing box. I would like to have a circuit built in to it that makes a truck think there is a trailer attached and will send out voltage on the wire for the electric brakes. This is so I can have a volt meter measuring how much voltage the truck is sending and make sure it is linear. Would hooking up two 6ohm load resistors in parallel to the blue (brake) and white (ground) wires off of a pigtail plugged in to the 7way plug on the truck make it think there is a trailer connected and therefor send voltage, or does the truck sense a trailer hook up a different way?
