Use your god given brain

Here is an interesting brain game. God gives it to people twice absolutely free, but if they want to have it for the third time, they have to pay money. What is it? Please, if you want to solve yourself, be careful and do not look at the comments of this post, because someone could have already written the solution there. Good luck!I found that somewhere, and i thought ill add it here, ill see how fast people will figure out what is is ;)The answer is teeth, you have teeth, they fall of and regrow Don't read it or else it will spoil the fun ;)

Sorting Instructables?

I want to view all instructables under a given topic, such as food, over a period of time. It seems that everytime I come back to the site the instructables have been placed in a different order. Is there a way to always start where I left off from my previous viewing in order to see all instructables for a given topic and not miss any? Love this site!!

User-given Patches Wear Off in a Month. :( (Nevermind :D)

After receiving a donut patch, I got an e-mail from Robot (he likes to send e-mail), and I read that Once someone receives a patch, it will wear-off in a month.. I think that time-span is kinda short.. Anyone else?

Contingency Plan

As part of my disaster readiness planning, I have given the scenario of a global economic meltdown much consideration. To this end I have compiled a thorough step-by-step contingency plan. I am happy to now be able to make this guide actionable and will be sharing all of this information as an Instructable shortly. How about you? Have you done any preparation? Have you given the matter any forethought?

When do Pro Memberships expire, if they are given for a featured 'able?

Hi,  I recently had a featured instructable. They gave me a one year, and a six month free Pro membership. In eight months, i am going to be putting together a workshop and working on *lots* of projects. My question is... When do these expire? I'd like to activate them, then, so I can reap the benefits whilst churning out many 'ables.

Are real prizes given away in Instructables competitions?

Hi there, I was wondering, this sounds like a daft question but are the competitions on Instructables real? Has anyone on these forums ever received a physical prize from Instructables, and if you won, how long did your prize take to arrive at your house? Just curious. I have done contests in the past on other 'how to' websites and never won anything. The contests seem so popular on Instructables that I want to know if it's worth my while to enter. Thanks! :-)

Volume of gas from given weight of dry ice?

I'm rusty on basic chem. specifically, molarity, molecular weight... Dry ice, frozen CO2 is sold by the pound. I'd like to know by working formulas, how much volume a pound of dry ice will fill once it returns to gas. Carbon has molecular weight ~ 12.  Oxygen ~16.  But I don't recall what those numbers represent. One mole of gas occupies 22.4 liters, but how much does a mole of CO2 weigh?

I see you've changed the page layout again... and lost the Answers tab in the process of doing so. (Apparently deliberate.

She did not give me any type of credit and made it appear that she had created it herself.  I am awaiting a response from her as I write this.  I saw a great deal of other instructable "family" on the site as well.  They too were not given credit.  So i ask...what do you do with this type of situation?

HELP please : Battery for nightvison

What batterys have a 12 or 24v, 3amp capabilities? Excuse the lack of technical speak but i struggle with it. I've recently given a pair or old Russian PNV-57a  night vision goggles, unfortunately they have to be plugged into a tank to operate. I don't have a tank... unfortunately. Im looking to get them attached to a battery so i can walk about with them. They got a box at the back allows them to be powered with 12 to 24 Volts. With an ampage of 3 to 3.5 a maximum power consumption of 6W or less. That's the information I've been given apart from their very robust and easy to play with.  like i said i want to power them with a battery but don't know what battery or if i need to make any circuits. Any ideas? Thanks folk Ben-jammin
