Photo Scavenger Hunt: Your Mom Edition

Hello everyone!  I've got some patches that are burning a hole in my pocket, and I'd love to share them with you! Here is my plan:  on a not at all regular schedule, I will come up with a harebrained idea for a strange and/or difficult to acquire picture.  I will take an example picture and post it in the community blog.  You will then go and take your own version of said picture and post it here in the comments, and in return I will send you a patch.  Sound good?  This needs to be your original picture, but if you feel the need to cover your face or whatever, that's fine.  Just make sure that you identify yourself in some way, say with a sign or something with your username on it.  For example, if I cared about preserving my anonymity I would wear a paper bag over my head with eye holes cut out and "Depot Devoid" written on it in sharpie. Photoshop is fine to touch up pictures, but don't overdo it.  I don't want any pictures that are completely photoshopped fabrications . . . unless they are really awesome.  I reserve the right to be the sole judge of what is awesome and my decisions are totally arbitrary and cannot be appealed to a higher authority.  I AM THE HIGHER AUTHORITY MWA HA HA HA!!!! Anyway, here's your first Photo Scavenger Hunt objective:  A picture of you and your mom (or grandma, or some reasonable facsimile thereof), engaged in lightsaber combat . . . to the death! Go forth my minions, and bring me pictures!

DPDT Timer circuit i.e. Momentary ON (+6v pulse) then OFF for 10 sec's then Momentary ON (reverse pulse)

I need to toggle a solenoid between 2 positions. It isn't spring loaded so needs to be powered between states i.e. a +6v and GND pulse to the coil then wait 5 to 10 sec's before sending another pulse but with the polarity reversed. Simple to do with a 'Mom-OFF-Mom' double pole double throw toggle switch e.g. JAYCAR Switch Tgl Mini CTR-OFF DPDT MOM CAT.NO: ST0358 but I would like to be a bit more automated.  Ideally the cycle will start at power on and then automatically repeat every 30 min's or so but if that makes it too complex, then a momentary push button switch could be included to manually initiate the cycle.

Speaker + resistor = joy? - help a mom replace a $299 6.5" OEM auto speaker

Hi All, I come to my dear instructables seeking some basic understanding.  Let me just preface this by the fact that I have no problem getting dirty or cracking things open to try to understand them better- probably  better at taking them apart than putting them back together - but I try...(hubby kids that I always end up with spare parts too). this leads me to my current problem. The right front speaker in my 2001 sienna minvan decided to blow after much to much green day playing. Yesterday I just couldn't take the awful hissing anymore and popped off the panel to pull out the speaker. I'm kinda used to my old cars where I could pop down to best buy and pickup a new set. Not so with Toyota - OH NO they have special 2.2 Ohm speakers that are proprietary to Toyota. So I went to the dealsership and was told that a new right front JBL speaker replacement  (model 6689) was going to cost me $299. - you read that right $299 for ONE 6.5" door speaker. I found a website briefly outlining how to take a plain 4 ohm speaker, get a 1.8 Ohm resistor and be done with it.  -  http://oneilengineering.9f.com/photo5.html - So there are a few questions that I need answered by someone with experience. 1) Is it that simple?  - I may opt for decent replacements and I'll do both door ones so they match ... 2) I can't see from that fellows photos exactly how the resistor is attached - is it just soldered in place bridging the two end where the + /- leads are attached? any existing ibles with closeups? I couldn't find any. is a resistor directional? 3) I read somewhere that if I'm adding the resistor -  that heat will be generated from reducing the current - Is that true? if so - do I have to shield it somehow? Thank you for any help !!!
