Let's face it, we really trust science. In fact, studies suggests that the vast majority of people will murder another human being, if a guy in a lab coat tells them it's OK.But surely in their insatiable curiosity and desire to put knowledge above all things, science would never, say, inadvertently set off a chain of events that lead to some sort of disaster that ended the world. Right?Well, here's five experiments that may prove us wrong.Slighty NSFW, as it cointains a few bad words, but this is hilarious!

Do you accept "joke" or Instructables based solely on "humor"? Do you think they should be allowed on Instructables? IMHO, if they are actually funny and/or build something cool in the process, I let them pass. Others, not so much. What say you?

And now, it's summer holidays, and I'm bored. I remembered this phone, and thought that maybe I could make something out of it.

Nope, that isn't a typo. You've heard of the periodic table of elements? Well, check out this hilarious table of condiments that periodically go bad. From Condiment No. 1 (Mayonnaise, which the table says goes bad in 3 months) to Condiment No. 75 (Maraschino, which apparently never goes bad), you can look up just about any condiment you can name to see when you need to toss it out. Or at least when these people think it goes bad.Take it with a grain of salt (Condiment No. 2, it never goes bad!) though-it claims Lemon goes bad in 2 months. Stuff and nonsense. I've eaten 3 month old lemons that were perfectly good.Mendeleev would be so proud...

One thing I like a lot when reading Instructables is how creators give a personal spin to their project descriptions and the instructions on how te make something. Sometimes there is even a small laugh on my face when somewhere hidden in step 9, picture 2 there is a funny joke. I can't help it that I include some silly dad jokes myself in my projects. The idea of this topic is to create a collection that make you smile. A quest for the hidden (dad)jokes in projects. Which ones are your favorites? Since most dad jokes only work in context I suggest you only post the link to the Instructable and how hard you laughed about it. Not the joke itself out of context. Then we can all go hunting for that silly joke.

Third LawAs the level of civility approaches absolute zero, the uselessness of an exchange of posts approaches infinity.There are many threads which are started in good humour - seeking information, looking for an intelligent discussion, or passing on a humorous tidbit. Most of them carry on in the same vein, but, occasionally, people get carried away. Discussion becomes argument, argument becomes name-calling. Tempers fray, feelings get hurt, reputations damaged. We've all seen it, or even been there.Eventually, when a thread begins to descend into the mire, it actually swamps all the original good it might have done.Such a thread must be walked away from. Wash your hands of a troll before you get dragged too deep. Abandon it to the fate of the the Second Law, before you waste too much precious bandwidth.

Not trying to spam/ad to the fire of religious debate or any of that, but recently I saw this post on Digg about this kid at Kutztown University who showed up at a religious protest, and to counter their craziness, he held up a sign that quite randomly and humorously said "Equal Rights for Robots." For some reason he was arrested minutes later. He may or may not have had the appropriate permit, but this seems a little insane, especially given the fact that these non-students were practicing hate speech, while a student was holding up a funny sign.Here's a link:http://www.basementcoder.com/?p=23But all of that bullcrap aside, the reason I came to you is because I figured everyone here likes robots, right?

I am heavily involved in letterboxing. I've seen letterboxing posts here on instructables, but just in case it's not a familiar topic, it's a hobby similar to geocaching. Especially when we have events and get-togethers we will often engage in self-deprecating humor about our nerd status. For upcoming events I would like to create either of the following props, and would appreciate any ideas on how to approach them: (1) Nerd Detector--some sort of box that would have some sort of motion or proximity sensor that would trigger an alarm, siren, etc., when approached. (2) Nerd Tester--something akin to the "love tester" from old, old-school arcades. Someone would grip a handle, and some sort of meter or display would indicate the participant's (supposed) level of geekery. Thanks for any ideas!!!

Looking to form a Team to help make a 3d video game. I've pretty much written everything (Script, level design concept , characters, story) so the game is ready to be made. I'm decent at 3ds max but I'm willing to use whatever program the group would prefer. The style of the game is a open world post apocalyptic desert. Its a miserable place with few friends and many enemies. You'll play as a female protagonist with the persona somewhat of a western outlaw such as billy the kid. Its dark comedy, quirky humor, and gritty. The gameplay will be like a mix of red-dead redemption style of gunaplay and gadgets that help traverse and explore the world like the batman arkham series. What we will need is - Coders / modelers / and anyone else who's interested. I've put a couple of somewhat concept art so you can get a picture of what I'm looking for.

Ok, I looked for all of 35.72 seconds to see if this has already been done, so don't light me up for not doing my research. I think it's a great idea for someone with more time on their hands than me. I was going through some of the wonderfully displayed instuctables and i came across a couple that may have very well been legit, but they were also hilarious. some of the pictures made no sense but the author just went with it anyway. So I was thinking, why doesn't somebody make a contest where they submit 5-7 random pictures that have nothing to do with one another. Then give everybody a week come come up with the best, most detailed instructable on how to do something, anything. winners could be based off of originality, detailed directions(could someone follow your directions and make something), humor, and of course best use of the pictures provided(what you are looking at would have to make some sense). I would love to do this myself on a weekly or monthly basis, but with work and school and kids. I don't really have the time. So, I'm just putting it out there.

I am very disappointed. I just spent 20 minutes typing up a perfectly good rant about how I was going to quit Instructables because my hastily put together towel-and-paracord project didn't make the contest finals. It was a very good rant, complete with accusations of favoritism and contest rigging, slams at the other projects that did make the finals, thinly veiled insults at the judges and Instructables staff, and other fun stuff. All tongue-in-cheek, of course. It was intended as a preemptive strike directed toward those who will inevitably whine about the contest results in earnest, in the hopes that a little satirical hyperbole would illustrate the ridiculousness of such whining. It bothers me to see intelligent, rational people turn into five-year-olds when they don't get their way, and I was hoping to forestall some of that with a bit of humor. All for naught, unfortunately. When I went to post it, it went into the Great Bit Bucket in the Sky. I can only assume that Robot Was Not Amused. Now I shall go and compose a rant about how I'm quitting Instructables because my posts are being unfairly censored. ;-p
