From the future...?

So yesterday, something very weird happened. I just got onto Instructables and went to the forums. While I was glancing through, I noticed something extremely weird. At the right side of every forum, it shows the most previous comment and who wrote it. But look at this picture below... it appears that kelseymh wrote a comment from the future...?!?!?!

The Future of Invisibility

It is reported that a team of researches at the University of California, Berkeley claim to be on the doorstep of invisibility. Using a special type of metamaterial they are bending electromagnetic waves and negatively refracting visible light. Their ultimate goal is to render entire objects invisible to the naked eye. After reading this, I conducted some invisibility experiments of my own. Based on my initial experiments with invisibility cloaking, I must concede that we are not quite there yet, but are getting close (see image).For more information, read the full news report

Future Projects

Well, I am bored, so I thought I would give an outline of my planned projects I have planned so far. They are in the order I plan upon doing them, and I am going to attempt to give a rough estimate of how long it will take me.  First up there is a dragon. It leans towards the European side, if a little flatter than what is considered "normal". I have most of him complete, and he should be completed by next Monday. (He is completed and you can find him here I can't say anything about this project at the moment, as it is a gift for another instructables member. The project itself will take two or three weeks and be posted at the beginning of June. (This project is done, but can not be posted yet) Next I have a triforce from the Legend of Zelda franchise planned. It will be three dimensial, and I hope to make it able to stand up on its own. It will take a week, maybe two. (Completed and can be found here) Most likely to be the last project started in May, I want to make a jumping mouse from the movie Coraline. The key word there is want. I may not be able to follow through on it. It all depends if I can find a way to do all of the small pieces well, and if I can find a yarn color that I like. These are all projects that I want to do, but do not have a date or an order to do them in. The last project could be placed down here, but I know I will spend at least a day figuring out if I can do it or not at the end of May.  Finishing up a simple, but tedious project I have started a good while ago. I may just take it with me when I go places and work it when I am going places. I don't know. It needs to get done though. The project, by the way, is crocheting with thread around a headphone cord. Very tedious. In case you missed it, I have a thing for dragons, and I also want an oriental dragon. So that will happen at some point. For yet another dragon, I have a little one that I cartoon sometimes that I would like to make a version of. I m not sure if I really want to make, but at the same time I do. I also want another hat. I have several hats already, but there is a really cute one I saw that I want to make.  I want to make another pokemon. Maybe a Skrelp or a Dralage or perhaps a life size Joltik. One other note is, I am a student and final exams are approaching rapidly. It is entirely and likely possible that the projects will be delayed slightly due to extra study time. June Update: The next project is going to be a Skrelp from the Pokemon franchise. It has not been started but it is slotted to. I have recently purchased a jig, so I will be playing with it a lot. I may just be copying other's designs, but a few of my own my slip through as well. I have tentative plans to recreate Kyube from Madoka Magica. I have several papercraft projects spinning around in my head. Mostly drawing out templates to recreate some of my favorite characters. I am unsure if I will post them on instructables, as I am unsure as how I would manage it. If any one has any suggestions, I would love to here them. I have an instructable planned on how to do negative word art, and one working with zentangles as well. It will be a while before either happens, as I want more practice first.

The Future Of Nuclear Energy

This is some what true but in the case of research  there is no “bad” waste being emitted from the reactions that undergo in theses reactors. Commercial Nuclear Reactors or CNRs do produce a lot of residue. They produce this residue by using their fuel so much to the point of radioactive waste. Small Research Reactors or SRRs do not do this, instead of using it up they produce new isotopes that can be useful instead of becoming waste.   So why don't we use SRRs? We do not use SRRs because of financial and safety. The safety concern comes in when the reactors are able to undergo Nuclear fission witch releases huge amounts of heat that no current materiel known to men kind is capable of withstanding. The other type of SRR is safe and financially friendly but does not produce electricity instead it uses approximately 1 million volts DC, but produces isotopes from elements such as Hydrogen witch is found in water.   In conclusion nuclear energy has not ended.

The future of K'nex guns?

What is the future of K'nex guns? It had literally been almost a year since I had been on this site, and when I came back, I was almost shocked to see that the best guns a year ago are still the best guns today.  There has been almost no improvements or innovations in the past year, and in many cases, the guns have gotten worse.   I really don't want to sound mean but this is a problem.  The only ones that I have seen (and I haven't looked around too thoroughly yet, so correct me if I am wrong) that have created something notably innovative and new are TheDunkis (new ram concept and gun), Zak (swagboss), Knexguy (bullpup bolt action), and Jollex (repeating sling).  And of course there are a few promising new-comers such as Icetank and Ryry.   I just want to encourage you all to at least try to think of something, put it down on paper, let others know, and even try to build it.  And even if there isn't something completely new you can come up with there are still so many things out there that need to be perfected such as pump actions, shotguns, repeating slings, horizontal (tube) mags, etc.  You can even try to combine some for an even more impressive gun. Personally, I think the future of knex guns are in horizontal magazines, as they are very rarely used and there are so many unexplored uses they can be put to.   Hopefully that inspired you to try something new, and if you don't agree with my point of view, prove me wrong!  Show me something that you've made that will amaze us.  I am simply trying to inspire a new year of knex guns.   So, what do you think the future of knex guns is?

PopSci is doing a roadshow called The Future of Sports Tour. You can learn about how science and technology are affecting the way we play and train. Golf, tennis, hockey, baseball and other sports keep evolving with the times and this is a way to see that in person. If you're in the SF bay area, New York, or Miami you can go and check it out.PopSci has also been nice enough to give us a bit of floorspace to show off three DIY games: Ladder Golf, Kubb, and Pringles Golf. You can see the games in person and see some footage of us playing them as well.If you're near any of these it should be worth the trip. And if not you can always make a set of your own and play at home!Dates:San Francisco (Great Mall) - July 18+19New York (Smith Haven Mall) - July 26+27Miami (Miami International) - August 2+3 Future of Sports Tour

Suggested (future) Pro feature

Just an idea that occurred to me... Some people produce Instructables that take a long time.  They might want to let people see how they are going. How about a section on pro orangeboards for Workshop Notes? Taking the same format as an Instructable (photos, steps, image notes), but showing up only on a pro's orangeboard, and not needing to conform to the usual Ible standards (like "being finished"), they could be a record of the progress being made in a project. Pros could use one set of workshop notes to record everything they are doing, maybe with a step per project, or they could have a set of notes per project.  In the case of the latter, they could also have the option of, when the project is finished, switching the project from their orangeboard to become a proper published Instructable. Just a thought.

Hate is fear, and fear is rot. That cankers root and fruit alike-Robert Graves

An interesting thing happened this morning, I normally get up a couple of hours before my wife, it gives me time to study and think. Well, this morning, about 7:30, I'm comfortable in a chair and a half by the front window, drinking my coffee and studying fluid mechanics for a test Monday when a car stops out front. I don't think much of it, then I hear the car door and I'm thinking "Great, they want to sell me something". But no, much to my incredulity, I hear spew forth a vitriolic stream of profanity and epithets directed at the campaign sign in my front yard. Now I'm not given to either panic or rage, and the door is still locked, so my response is more one of bemusement than anything. But later it occurred to me, regardless of any outcome come November, America is a deeply wounded and divided nation. How very sad.

It can hold just about any mid tower computer  nicely, and under it i will be putting in a drawer but these aren't the final plans so I don't want to design a drawer just yet, next to the keyboard pullout would probably be a place to store documents, or in my case drawings. and on the right you'd have your multi purpose shelving may end-up making the spaces non permanent.

A Carbon Tide: Past, Present and Future

The New York Times has a really nice graph showing the world's historical and projected carbon emissions here at A Carbon Tide: Past, Present and Future Global emissions of carbon dioxide, measured by the weight of carbon it contains.Their choice to display it in flash rather than a similarly-sized image is somewhat annoying, but the chart itself does a nice job presenting a type of data that is often difficult to comprehend. Getting people to truly grasp the size and scale of some of the world's energy issues is one of the key challenges in making progress on those issues. In 2004, 7.9 billion metric tons of carbon were released -- did you make good use of your metric ton?Here's a thought experiment in that same vein: The San Francisco oil spill was originally reported as a 140 gallon spill, but turned out to be approximately 58,000 gallons. How much worse is a 58,000 gallon spill compared to a 140 gallon spill?
