Parkour Clubs

Does anyone go to a parkour or freerunnning club? I find it really helps you keep fit and get better. Within an hour I was able to do a kong vault much better. Well, anyone out there go to one?

What causes oodammo to spin in certain guns, when other guns make them fly straight?

I've noticed, with guns like the MeZak, my new one and the V2, and a quite a few others, the ammo sort of spazzes out and flips around when fired, and isn't accurate. But with guns like the TBOS, Lowney's small oodammo pistol, etc. and TBAP the ammo flies straight. It's about 2 accurate ones for every one flippy one. Can someone explain why?

My one year anniversary on Instructables!

Wow. One year. Doesn't seem so big, it's gone so fast! I want to thank everyone who has helped and guided me, been my friend, or even just friendly! In this time, I've posted 21 instructables. That's on average one every 17.39 days! Wow. I guess... I'm addicted to Instructables! Eric, thanks for making this great site! Viccie, Dj, DGM, IAC, Dsman, TD, EB, Jollex, BB, KBF, TBM, KSBF, aww hell, all K'NEXers, thanks for being awesome and constructive, and helping me get where I am today! Thanks to every single member of Instructables! And if you don't get why I'm thanking everybody, don't worry, I'll be sticking around for a long time! (Unless premium accounts mess up the site...). Thanks again! -TJ (\_/) (o.o) (> <) And his bunneh ;)

Guitar solo competition - ENTRIES NEEDED

I had this idea in a dream yesterday night. It involved me performing live (with a jackson king V) with megadeth and doing a guitar solo, which I won an instructables shirt from. I thought about it, and I guess it could work (without the prize, of course). Your guitar solo must be 30 seconds long at least, and anywhere up to 2 minutes. It can't be in sound file format, it must be in a video with sound (preferably youtube or similar). At the end, you must state your instructables name so I know it is you. You must also play to a backing track. I will post examples at some point, but you can make them yourself if you wish. I will need: 3 non-participating judges, preferably with musical experience. (Rap does NOT count Dj). As many entrants as possible! I will be entering as well, so I will not judge. The solos must be marked on: Musicality /10 Technical skill /10 Scales used /5 (1 point for each, 5 being maximum) Complexity /10 Fluency /10 Enjoyability /5 Total: /50. The Judges: HIVLTGE1 ajleece logic boy All entries must be in by March 1st 2010, then judging commences. The player with the highest total mark out of 150 is the winner, and will receive a prize of some sort. Perhaps a patch from a pro member, or a rating. This is chosen by each of the judges. Good luck, happy soloing!

What is going on here?!

The background on the homepage is suddenly covered with norton adverts for some reason. The orange is gone. And, the post maker has a white background with no orange top. Is this a glitch, or purposeful.

The K'nex Innovations Challenge (KIC) - Setup Topic

I think we all know how slowly things have been going for a while on this site, and I've been thinking, we need to encourage some innovation. So I'm holding a new competition, to see what we can get out of people when they have a bit more motivation. I'll need two impartial judges (to work with me), and a lot of contestants. The way this competition will work is as follows: The judges will mark each entry on a certain set of criteria, depending on the specification and brief for each round. There will be 5 rounds. The first round is free for anybody to enter. The 20 best-performing entries will move through to round two, with a new brief. The second round is only accessible to the top 20 from round one. The top 10 entries will make it through to round three. Round three will host 10 candidates, and the top 5 entries will proceed to round 4. Following round 4, the final three contestants will be chosen, and round five will be the final round/decider, and one winner will be chosen. The winner will recieve a prize (to be agreed upon with the judges), possibly pro membership, and will definitely recieve a dedicated forum topic congratulating them on their victory. Judges I will need a pair of judges who are willing to give up time to build creations, and are able to talk on Skype or MSN about the competition for judging purposes. The judges will be impartial to the competition (i.e. can't enter) and non-biassed. Please contact me here. As soon as the judges have been appointed and the topic and deadlines are chosen, I will post a topic signalling the start of round one. Please do not post any entries until the opening date as the entries will be produced to fit a brief agreed by the judges. Judge 1: The Jamalam Judge 2: DJ Radio Judge 3: Lowney I have nothing else to say, but any requests for briefs and applications for judge-hood are welcome. Round one is now live!

What's the most part-use weapons made of knex? Answered

I have about 105 pounds of knex (yeah yeah look at pics) and I want to build something really big, but I don't want to build the Heavy Cannon v1 because i've built v3 and v5. I also don't want to build the Vivisector because that's (as my friend would say it) weak sauce. So is there any high piece count knex weapons that aren't that boring to build and shoots far?
