The phrase "You have no right": What's the deal?

Recently, I saw someone use a variation the phrase "You have no right to say that".  Location and who said that are not important.  Anyways, my bull detector went off, so I just decided to post this topic. For all the people who have used this phrase before, guess what?  They still said it.  The receivers of this skewered phrase obviously don't care if they don't have the right to say it, which brings me to this train of thought: Why do we call it a "Right"?  Most times people say it as if it was not a legal right at all, but matter of fact is, that most conversation on the internet is not really anything to involve cops or authorities in (Well, at least the conversations with the phrase I mentioned above), so why are we treating this as something straight out of the constitution or bill of rights or whatever? Offtopic: I kept the poster of the comment and the location of the comment anonymous for a reason.  It would be smart for him/her to not blow it with a poorly written comment. Why I posted this topic: There have been a bunch of phrases on the internet (some offensive with cuss words and whatnot) that don't make sense when you go by their definition, and I felt like ruining one of them.

Coin a phrase, or one liner

Have you ever wonder were, phrases come from like  " That's what she said " or  "See you later.......not if I see you first" or "Well, there's your problem!" I think i may of coined a phrase, but of course I can't prove it  " Its funny cause its true"   I even heard it on TV the other night, I have been saying that for years. Anyways today after a student made a mess I gave him a mop and bucket and told him to clean it up. After 20 minutes I came back and he had managed to make the mess about 100 times worse. I was very annoyed with him and I was inspired to say  "Never send an idiot to do a job a monkey could do" Anyway there is, If it takes off I will now have proof that i said it first on 20 april 2016 So whats your favorite phrase or one liner?  Maybe you could come up with the next "That's what she said!"

Best. Phrase. Evar! Where did you first hear that phrase?

I first heard the "Best. (insert anything here). Evar." line on a remake of pride and prejudice. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0366920/ Char. A: "Best. Date. Evar!"Char. B: "You say that after every date."But in the last few years, and on instructables in particular, I've read the phrase much more often. I'm wondering if the ultimate source for the phrase was the movie or something else. I like etymology, what can I say.So anyways, where'd you first hear that phrase?

Arduino Moon Phrase

Hello I am a 12 year old boy and recently got interested in Arduino. For Science fair I want to make a simple moon phrase displayer using leds, however, I could not find any projects simple enough for just a beginner. Also I only know the basic of coding giving me a hard time trying to understand complex codes. I would appreciate if there is a simple way to make the moon phrase displayer. Thanks in advance.

Search Engine

The web guys should write a search feature that counts the number of times a word or phrase is searched and then displays that value whenever that same word or phrase is searched. A separate page containing the top searched words or phrases could be added. A feature such as this would allow members to create instructables about topics in demand.

Not Anagrams

We're all familiar with anagrams?Rearranging the letters of a word phrase, or name to produce a new phrase, using all the original letters and only once each.For example* "Ripley's Believe it or Not" - "Lively enterprise. Boo it"Or anagrams of a former US PresidentHowever, more fun are not-anagramsFor example*Tony Blair - Lying hairdresser.Richard Branson - Lucifer chinned racketeer.Peter Stringfellow - Tangerine child catcher.Do you know of any amusing "not-anagrams"?Not-anagrams should sound like anagrams, they're not clever or amusing if they don't(Original idea from Viz comic / magazine, years ago)

Continue the story!

A few days ago, in registration, our form tutor decided to play a game! She gave us an opening phrase, and we had to say a word each going one after another! so I decided to do this here.RULESYou are only allowed to say one word, and may not reply to your own posts. You can reply to an opening, or make a new 1st opening. That's it!So the starting phrase is...One day, my friend Jim and I...Have fun, and I hope we get some interesting results!The Jamalam

New Knex ball machine contest closed Winner: Purple Waffles

As some may know I have started a new ball machine. I'm planning to make it my largest yet using over 20,000 pieces.  Here's the contest: This will work a bit like hangman. You guys guess letters until someone guesses the answer and the one who finds out the name of the ball machine will get frequent updates on Skype or Email with pictures of the ball machine plus a preview on another project I'm working on. Shadowman39 will also be providing a patch to the winner (Thanks Shadow).  Two letters will already be given and spaces to fill in the rest. As poeple say letters I will add them to the phrase. Rules: You may only guess ONE LETTER per day. If you guess a letter that appears twice in the name then only one of the letters will appear. Some people who already know what the ball machine is called CAN NOT give away any answers in any way (I'm talking to you Shadowman39). You have to guess the whole phrase. you may not guess part of the phrase. Without further ado, let the contest begin! DRAGON   JEWEL Good luck members and happy guessing. :-)  Purple Waffles won the contest. Thanks for participating

Negative Google

There are ways and means of putting websites high on the results of a google search.Are there ways of dropping it down the list of a particular search, though? I am thinking particularly of the S-word - if one googles for a phrase that contains the S-word, this site comes out as third hit.So, is there a way to make Instructables less popular for that particular search?

Things a plant would say...

I'm working on something fun...  We'll leave it at that for now. I need a nice, long list of things a plant would say to a human.  Humor and biology geekiness are welcome!  Patches to folks who come up with the most phrases or the best phrases.  Keep it PG though, ok? Here are some examples: "I think you should become a meatatarian" "So when are you going to evolve and run on sunshine, like I do?" "Gahhh!  Aphids!  Get 'em off!  Get 'em off!" "I'm thirsty.  Water Me!" "Audrey II is my hero." "No worries, baby - I'm organic!" "When you belch it's like a breath of fresh air." "My pistol is useless against insects!" "If you kill me, I think you should try a rock garden next."

Should Instructables titles begin with "How to..."?

I tend to write the titles of my 'ibles as if the phrase "How to..." was already there. Thus: Get Any Information... Knit replacement pads... etc. I notice, though, that most of the Burning Questions begin with "How to..." This suggests that people are searching using those words. So, should I change all my titles to start that way, or just leave them as-is?

How to Write & Submit Questions

I haven't been a member of this community very long but I've enjoyed looking at many of the posts and have learned a thing or two.  I also enjoy helping people by posting comments and answers to questions.  One thing that I've noticed is that a significant number of posters write very poor questions.   Not that the question isn't valid, but rather the phrasing or context is not clear.  Some of them remind me of the old programming axiom GIGO - Garbage in equals garbage out.  Posters don't get good responses because they didn't form a good question.  The curious would get much better answers if the questions were clear as to the information requested, the context, conditions, the desired outcome, etc.  One might start with the old "5 W's" (who, what, when, where, & why and perhaps how and how many).  A little extra effort in phrasing the question and perhaps some good manners (please & thank you) will result in better responses and more community participation.   Perhaps as a collaborative effort, would there be value in developing an instructable on how to write a question?  Not as a set of rules or a format, but as a general guide as to what information should be included.

A brief statement used to express a principle, goal, or ideal. 2. A sentence, phrase, or word of appropriate character inscribed on or attached to an object. 3. A maxim adopted as a guide to one's conduct. Firstly, I'll start off by telling you one or two of my mottos:   This is tough, but you are tougher. Push yourself to the limit, then exceed it. Thats just 2, I could list a load more, but it'd take too much space. So... Whats your motto?

Instructables as an Extracurricular

Really weird question. I didn;t know where else to ask. So I really love tinkering, building things, and making Instructables. I'm applying to college and thought putting it on would be a good idea. However, I really don't know what to 'call' it. if the admissions officers don't know what Instructables is - it looks really weird. Online Tech Blogging would be a wrong way to phrase it. Tinkering is far too general. I'm looking for a short and specific term that includes my love for building/making stuff, and my interest in instructables. Thanks for the help, and I'm sorry if this is the wrong place to ask :(((((

The "Recently Added" list in Groups -- should be "Recently Published"?

I've noticed what is either a bug in the backend script that generates the "Recently Added" list for a Group page, or a bug in the name used to identify the generated list. Specifically, the 15 I'bles, Slideshows, and Videos listed under "Recently Added" are sorted in order of their publication date, and that publication date is used to cut off the list at 15 entries. It seems to me that the phrase "recently added" implies that the list should be ordered based on how recently each item _was_added_, not how long ago each item was published. There are two obvious fixes to the bug, depending on the intention of the programmer :-)

Minimum voltage/amperage required for peltier cooler?

I want to connect a couple of computer fans and a peltier cooler to some solar cells, but I want to keep the amount of electronics to a minimum (for the sake of KISS). Assuming the fans and peltier are rated to run at 12V, and I connect the solar cells to provide 12V at peak, will I be able to leave it connected all the time, i.e. when it's night time there is no electricity being provided, maybe in the late morning there is half the electricity, and in the afternoon sun full power? I guess a simpler way to phrase my question is: Can these devices be run with much lower voltage or amperage than they are rated for?

Killerjackalope's social experiment results

Well I've been conducting a secret social experiment using shopping bags and the environmental topics everywhere as a media for this to happen. Basically my plan was to see if I could affect the decision of whether or not to take a bag when it's not completely necessary, to change the course of decision I used different phrases and tried to get a more accurate measure by choosing the same people that come in for milk or bread each day.The phrases are:'Would you like a bag?''Do you want a bag''Do you need a bag?''Wee bag there, mate?'Bag?'The results were really quite interesting, the one putting emphasis on need (very subtlety) reduced bag takings by over half in a day, whereas 'Wee bag there, mate?' produced a very high bag taking day because it detracts from the bags impact as an object. The other things I found was that it's actually possible to control some customers bag taking completely, there's a customer that comes in every day to get milk and I have managed to control his bag taking with about a 95% success rate, so shopkeepers unite and we can eradicate unnecessary bag taking, thereby reducing the majority of plastic bags that end up in the street and ocean, landfills are another story, thankfully my stores bags are fully biodegradable...What do you make of all this, and is it possibly a bit much power to give to a shop worker...On another note I have curtailed the efforts of one customer I know as the bag thief, he used to take five or six for various uses, through gentle shame jibing he's now down to one.

Difficulty adding keywords.

Hello, While surfing around Instructables, I noticed some people have phrases in their keywords instead of just single words. I tried to search for the answer, but continue to have difficulty adding more than one word at a time. I found one post stating the words must be separated by commas. So, I typed in the following: HOW,TO,MAKE-T-SHIRT,YARN. Nothing. It divided the words, each on an individual line. Then I found a post stating the words should be separated by a '+' symbol, so I tried it. HOW+TO+MAKE+T-SHIRT+YARN Now the words are scrunched like this: HOWTOMAKET and SHIRTYARN Could someone kindly point me in the right direction? Many thanks! https://www.instructables.com/id/Recycle-T-Shirts-into-Seamless-Yarn/

18&quot; Eric Draven The Crow NECA - $30 OBO

Check out this realistic version of Brandon Lee as Eric Draven! The tragic character, otherwise known as "The Crow," is shown here as a testament to Lee's legacy. The Crow stands 18" tall and comes with his trenchcoat and bird that can perch on his shoulder. Highly detailed with articulation at the neck, shoulders, forearms, wrists, waist, and ankles, The Crow also speaks 5 different phrases. He's been on display for about five years in a smoke free and dust free environment. He retails for 70 dollars on amazon, but I'm cleaning house and would like to see him get a new home. So thirty dollars and he's yours! Serious offers only. The figure is loose, no packaging and comes complete.

You are not me, and you are not funny by trying to be me.

So lately there have been some dumbasses on the site (I'm looking at you, "DJ_SPLENDIFERIOUS") who think that imitating me, my phrases, or my avatars will be cool because I'm so awesome.  All you people are really doing is wearing out my style.  Nobody can be me better than myself, so why bother trying? I decided to take a look at the world population, and I see that there are 6,809,972,000 people in the world as of the 2009 census.  So that means there are 6,809,971,999 people that are not me, and therefore should stop wasting their time imitating me.  Now I know that not everybody imitates me, but the main point is that only I can be me, and everyone else is just wearing out my style.

Obama gives props to &quot;the makers of things&quot;

This isn't a political post - just an observation. I took note of the phrase "makers of things" during Obama's inauguration speech. Go Makers!"In reaffirming the greatness of our nation, we understand that greatness is never a given. It must be earned. Our journey has never been one of short-cuts or settling for less. It has not been the path for the faint-hearted - for those who prefer leisure over work, or seek only the pleasures of riches and fame. Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things - some celebrated but more often men and women obscure in their labor, who have carried us up the long, rugged path towards prosperity and freedom."

Convert motion activated prop to timed/random

I've searched for weeks for an answer that doesn't require a PhD in electrical engineering and hope someone here can help. I have a motion activated Halloween prop (walk by and it talks, etc) however, it requires quite a bit of light in order to detect the motion. I'd like to either put it on a timer and/or just let it chatter randomly so that it will actually be useful. I love the phrases he uses more than  the prop itself and plan to remove it's electronics to place in a different prop. However, it's pointless if it remains quiet as we won't have him close enough to a bright light source to make him talk. Help? Thanks Elaine

Smurfs (bizarre)

When I take a holiday in Wales we always listen to "The Smurfs" (Father Abraham in Smurfland) - it's a tradition. Hence the phrase "The Smurfs have finished" meaning "Someone change the record". If you've not been exposed to this yet, see here: Then there's "Smurfing beer" - quote: "you don't get drunk and it isn't dear" (It isn't beer) www.youtube.com/watch The Pinoccio song questions - quote "Pinoccio, Pinoccio, why are you made of wood?" www.youtube.com/watch The annoying but up-beat Dippety-Do song: www.youtube.com/watch Looking at the album cover I wonder exactly what happens when the floating-head of Father Abraham appears in Smurfland - do they panic and start singing lest he smite them?

Help needed for english in a lab

I need some help with english in connection with scientific work in a lab and things like that. I am able to speak english nearly fluent in normal conversation but on special subjects i am lost. I am studying chemistry and a few days ago, when i had to talk to a lab assistant, who didn't speak german(my native language), I thought something like 'WTF is that thing called where you store volatile compounds and where you do the experiments etc.'. It would be nice, if you could tell me some words for common lab equipment and phrases that are essential in a chemistry lab, especialy for the case that something goes wrong. (well of course i also need a short explanation if the meaning isn't obvious) Thanks in advance.

When am I helping vs doing someone's homework for them?

I try to answer all the questions that people post to my 'ibles. (At least all the ones I have a useful answer for)  I also know that some of my projects are being taught in schools and universities, which is really really great! Every once and a while I get a question that sounds like a homework question.  I'm not entirely sure it is, there might be cross-language difficulties or other reasons for the awkward phrasing and unusual specificity in the question, etc. If it's not a homework question I want to answer it.  If it is a homework question... well I don't do people's homework for them. I know there are lots of teachers (and students) here, what should I do?  Ignore it? Smartass answer? Something else?

Flag request: &quot;other&quot;

I'm sure this has been suggested elsewhere, but nothing came of it, either way, and it has come up again in a conversation with another member by PM. Currently, Instructables can be flagged for three reasons - "inappropriate", "incomplete" or "spam". Whilst they cover most eventualities, I would like to propose a fourth flag option: "other". Of course, "other" is rather vague, so its use would require details - clicking it would open a comment or message box to allow a brief description of the reason for the flag, whether it is the original source of a project that has been ripped off from elsewhere, or a concern regarding the safety or legality of a posting. I don't know coding, so I don't know if such a system is possible with this site. If it isn't, then can I suggest that a fourth flag option be added called "Legal issues", or some other catch-all phrase that covers issues of intellectual ownership and site liability.
