Ever spend time with someone and can't remember how many times they say or do something that you HATE? How about making a small push button device that allows you to push the button each time you want to say "I hate/love/ whatever", along with a sound and a visible counter for number of times the button is pushed? Easy way to decide at the end of the day if you really like this person or not............ The components must be small enough to be able to carry the device in your hand for instant counting. Just a :) Any ideas on how to costruct this idea would be appreciated: P.S......I'm not much of an electrician or engineer so the simplest of plans is a neccesity. Thanks in advance Sam

Love Sucks Party

My friend Bug is responsible for a fine Valentine's Day tradition: the Love Sucks party.This party is held whenever he's single (according to the rules below), and is open to any single friends and their single friends. It's usually held at a distinctly non-romantic type of restaurant with ample seating and strong drinks. I know of at least one marriage that's come of Love Sucks parties, but that's really not the point, is it?The rules:1) Single is defined as a) really single, b) your SO is at least 3,000 miles away, or c) you don't have a date for Valentine's Day and your romantic entanglements require a white board for proper mapping, otherwise known as the Circus Trainer Clause. (As in, "my girlfriend is out for dinner with her husband and her girlfriend, the circus trainer..." or something equally convoluted enough to require a whiteboard for mapping.) Either way, participants are likely to be a bit grouchy about the holiday.2) Single friends can bring another of their single friend as a "non-date", ie someone they would never date. There may be more rules, but as I've never been (un)lucky enough to attend one of Bug's Love Sucks parties I'm a bit fuzzy on the other details. (Bug, can you help out here?) It should be noted that he's NOT planning one this year, as he doesn't qualify to attend. ;-) This shouldn't stop you from picking up this worthy tradition. Just make sure to bring a whiteboard.UPDATE: here's Bug's official description and invite template for all to use.

Why you love Instructables

I don't know if this can really be categorized as burning question, but it is what it is. This is a topic to post why you love Instructables and enjoy it so much. It is a pretty random topic, so I don't mind if there are random posts. What are you waiting for, tell the world why you love Instructables!

Posted by Ferrite 10 years ago  |  last reply 10 years ago

the reason I love

If you compare comments on these posts with the comments on the original ones (and generally everywhere on instructables) you'll understand the reason why I love instructables so much! People don't come on instructables to criticize our ideas, you'll rarely read a comment where someone don't thank you to sharing your work. Often they suggest other techniques or solutions, and they always do it with respect. Nobody ask them to comment the instructables, and it's clear that the absence of comments means the project didn't obtain any interest. This fact is so strong that sometimes it makes you wish more criticism about your ibles, but the reality is that it's a pleasure draw up a project for a such welcoming  audience. This is the great virtue of instructables community.

Construction Equipment in Loving Detail

Belgian artist Wim Delvoye has approached construction equipment and reimagined them with an obsessive amount of detail to create new gothic items that need to be seen to be believed. With laser-cut and carved materials, the "vehicles" are far from functional, but still amazing.That's it, I need to plan a trip to see some new art in other countries. Linkvia Core77

Ridiculous and lovely wooden sphere

Over at Make: Blog, George Hart shows that if you put a challenge out there, no matter how crazy, someone might just do it. So 15 years after he made some plans for a theoretical sphere made with 480 wooden pieces and 960 connections, someone actually built it. In this case it was Thomas Guethner of Trostberg, Germany. It's a ridiculous project to take on, but I'm happy that he did it, the results look great! Math Monday: Nailbanger's Nightmare

A Love Letter to the Instructables Community

Dear fellow contributors, Halloween is approaching, and that was what first got me involved in the Instructables community. I haven't posted anything in about a year now.  We bought a house, and all the maintenance that comes with that took away my free time for projects.  Then I got promoted to a position I've always been after, which is also more time consuming.  Then when i finally reclaimed some free time, I started volunteering taking photos for a local animal shelter to help get cats re-homed faster, AND started fostering under-sized kittens for another shelter! All of this has been great life stuff, but it has left the craft room in my new house woefully underused. Just wanted to write and express my appreciation for this community. When I was posting projects, I was immersed! I loved seeing what other people made and interacting with the makers. I loved helping to judge contests and the thrill of seeing if i would place in one myself.  Instructables gave me a creative outlet back when I was in positions at work that were less satisfying. Instructables gave me a whole world of people to connect with when my own world was so small.  Thanks to those individuals who were always supportive, celebratory, and who answered questions for a newbie.  Thanks to the hardworking staff at Instructables to were always great communicators and who choose such fun challenges and prizes! This place is great. I hope to make a return to posting Instructables someday when life slows down. Maybe about kitten fostering, since I now have plenty of experience with that! Just wanted to say thanks, and to tell my fellow makers never to take your free time for granted.  It is a gift! Keep sharing your gifts with others :)

He calls me babe and tells me he loves me in a playful way, and try's to get me alone so he can talk and looks at me a lot. everyone says he likes me, and every time they ask him he gets mad and playful but doesn't deny it. he calls me babe in front of everyone and tried to hug me. I'm not sure if he likes me, but so far everyone who has seen us together thinks we should date, and now everyone asks how me and my stalker boyfriend is doing, since he always looks for me at lunch and sits a little too close.

How do I talk with my crush and what should I do?

I love a girl in school and we are both really shy. She looks at me all the time and I learned a little bit about girls body language and I found out that many signs show she loves me.We rarely talk with each other. Once there were exams and I did it so bad that I thought I would fail and go from school so I gave her a love letter with the help of my friend ( I wrote me name on it) and she was smiling with her friends, then I was gone with me friends when suddenly her brother (who is in the same school and class with me) called me and told me that the principle is calling me. He was really angry. When I went to the principle my crush was talking with her. The principle asked me about the letter, at that time I saw sadness on her face and she wasn't looking at me (she looks at me from far and not when I am near her) the principle told me love is not allowed in this school. After that I lost hope and forget love and thought she hated me but she was still looking at me from far away. We don't talk. and I think she still loves me and gave the latter to the principle because of her brother ( who hates to see boys talk about his sister ) so my questions are: 1. does she loves me.( she looks at me from far away and laughs when I am near her but she runs away from me when she brother is near by) 2. Now that I have told her I love her I can't talk because she already knows everything so how do I talk with her. 3. I she know I love her and still doesn't talk so what should I do now I am confused and please give me good answers that help me not the ones that discourage me.
