The 7 pound bike

The wheels are barely over 700 grams for the pair and weight has been shaved off of every possible spot to create a ride that weighs in at 3,195 grams or just over 7 pounds. Damn. I used to have a beast of a cruiser that was easily over 50 pounds. This bike isn't just for show either. The owner has ridden 1,000 kilometers a week on it! link

Pound sign seems to mess up forum!

Take a look at my forum topic below "GBP Pound sign messed up on site £", and you will see what is shown in the screen cap. Clearly a bug, and something to do with the dreaded GBP symbol, I bet.

What Grocery stores have the most reasonable prices for turkeys per pound?

Seeing that the economy has gone absolutely crazy with the outrageous prices for food!!!! I would like to ask my fellow community members if you have noticed any grocery stores who are having good deals on turkeys per pound? I live here in Northeastern Ohio and at Save a Lot(Discount food store) a turkey was $1.79 a pound. Please can somebody possibly give me some feedback on how a family of three can have a decent meal without spending my whole paycheck?

GBP (Pound sign) messed up on site £

No-one's reported this, strangely. It is probably related to the Alt codes bug, but since I'm typing directly into the Instructables editor (rather than copying and pasting) I'm starting a new bug report. ‚£ comes out wrong. There really shouldn't be that  in front of it! It leaves the  in there if you hit back to edit from the preview, as well. And you can't use &GBP; either, as we cannot use the Alt codes for HTML in comments. Edit: As you can see, every time you preview then edit, another A appears. It grew to £ this time.

160,000 pounds of ink...

From Juxtapoz Magazine: All you wanted to do was have a smooth commute this morning but of course it takes you an addition two hours because of an overturned tracker-trailer, what a way to start the day right? Well this morning outside of Boston, we can imagine commuters were rubber-necking more than usual as they got to see one hell of a sight . . . 160,000 pounds of industrial printer ink splattered over a 500 foot stretch of road…   I'm not sure it's actually 160,000 lbs of ink, since that's over 72 tonnes.  Let's call it 16,000 lbs, that works out as over $10,000,000 worth of colourful drain flush. I wonder if the driver still has a job?

Black Holes aren’t Black they are Gray?

Ok so 40 years ago Stephen Hawking came up with the theory of Black holes and today they are not black but gray. It turns out that the black holes Hawking wrote about in 1974 — those places in the space-time continuum that can devour galaxies and even trap light forever — may not exist in the way that he proposed decades ago. So I read the paper. http://arxiv.org/pdf/1401.5761v1.pdf I found it a bit dry compared to A Brief History of Time but that is the life of a paper. I have always believed a theory is just that and no more, prone to evolve or be disproved with the advent of new theories and facts. After all it is just a theory and not a fact even though many of these theories enable us to the most amazing things. Which reminds me of a joke. A Canadian fisherman was down south fly fishing with an American fisherman that happen to be a marine biologist. Soon the Canadian fisherman caught a one pound brook trout and stated it was just a baby and threw it back. The American marine biologist not objecting to catch and release, objected to the Canadian calling a one pound Salvelinus fontinalis a baby. He explained to the Canadian fisherman that the Salvelinus fontinalis is genetically unable to grow larger than one pound. The Canadian fisherman retorted I catch five pounders in the Boyne River all the time and that was just a baby where he comes from. The American marine biologist objected to the Canadian calling a one pound Salvelinus fontinalis a baby. Again he explained to the Canadian fisherman that the Salvelinus fontinalis is genetically unable to grow larger than one pound. Not wanting to argue the Canadian fisherman let the subject lye and spent the rest of the day fishing throwing their catch back. At the end of the day they exchanged addresses and parted friends. A month later the American marine biologist received a parcel in the mail in it was a frozen five pound brook trout, distraught he began to write the Canadian fisherman a letter. “Dear Mr. Fuddel Duddel Thank you for the five pound specimen of the Salvelinus fontinalis, and thank you very much for ruining perfectly good science with a fact. Sincerely John Doe”

Volume of gas from given weight of dry ice?

I'm rusty on basic chem. specifically, molarity, molecular weight... Dry ice, frozen CO2 is sold by the pound. I'd like to know by working formulas, how much volume a pound of dry ice will fill once it returns to gas. Carbon has molecular weight ~ 12.  Oxygen ~16.  But I don't recall what those numbers represent. One mole of gas occupies 22.4 liters, but how much does a mole of CO2 weigh?

Making coolest self-raising loft bed for kid - please help with hardware!

Hi everybody.  I am going to make a loft bed that will raise automatically when my kid gets out of it.  What I'd like to do (please see attached files) is suspend the bed via pulleys and cables attached to one weight.  The weight would be just a pound or two (trimmable, of course) more than the frame, mattress, bedding, etc. so it will raise itself until the weight hits a stop leaving the bed a few inches from the ceiling.  If necessary some friction could be used to keep the speed reasonable.  At night it should pull down quite easily, and I believe that with this layout, it should come down evenly regardless of where it is being pulled.   I had wanted this to "float", but since it is going to be in a corner anyways, I may run a couple tracks down the wall with hardware to guide the bed and keep it from swinging. The big question I have is how to fasten this to the ceiling.  It is drywall with joists above.  Offhand I'm guessing the bed will be say 110 pounds, so about 225 pounds hanging from the ceiling with the bed empty.  I'd like to have an extra, what, 500 pounds wiggle room?  Worst case scenario, two 150 pound people sitting on the end of the bed...  I mean I can explain that this is a one person only contraption, but I REALLY don't want it coming down regardless of what gets thrown at this thing. Any ideas, criticisms, feedback, will be so greatly appreciated.  I think this could be really awesome, and I know it will make my son flip out!  He's got a very small room, and this will free up so much space. Thanks again.  John

What are you worth?

I was wondering how much a human body is worth, so I worked it out.I based it on a 100kg human, to keep the numbers simple, assuming commercial use of the materials, and worked in GBP:Oxygen (65kg) 32,274.16Carbon (18kg) 270.00Hydrogen (10kg) 10.00Nitrogen (3kg) 4.00Calcium (1.5kg) 2173.91Phosphorus (1kg) 0.25There are other elements in smaller amounts ("enough sulphur to make a box of matches, but nothing to strike them on"), so we'll add a few pounds for those, and the whole thing comes out at: 34,750 of your English pounds!So, who is going to start the first people-recycling centre?

Choosing paint ball gun

When choosing a paint ball gun you need to first look at your budget. how much are you willing to pay. remember you also need a tank ($20 to $300) and a hopper ($5-$150) and a mask ($30 to $200)you you want a cheap gun to shoot in you back yard and do not need reliability accuracy or quality Get a spader if you want to play paint ball don't get a spyder. The first guns you will probably look at will be Tippmanns, they are extremely durable and reliable. How ever you can not play speed ball with a tippmannn your limited to woods ball. The only real reason to get a tippman is the flat line barrel system.There is no reason why you cant get an electro-pneumatic gun and play woods ball. A proto slg or pmr weighs 3-8 pounds less than a tippmann. Woods ball games last for 30+ min a person with a 1.5pound gun a 2 pound tank and a half pound hopper is going to Own over a person with a 5 pound gun a 4 pound tank a half pound hopper. elect-pneumatic guns are lighter and are multi-purpose a with a tippmann you can only play woodsballSo which gun should i getfor a cheap woodsball gun get a Tippmann 98 custom pro or a tippmann A5For a great multi roll gun look into a Proto Matrix rail (pmr) or Proto slg (super light gun) at my local store the pmr cost $10 more than the slg ($250) but it comes with a locking feed neck (worth $20+ and older more reliable internals) For a little bit more performance at a higher price the invert mini is a great little unique gun its not the most reliable but you get a great gun for $350BTW never buy smart parts guns. I think the best gun for mid level players is the Dangerous power threshold $500 its sweetwhat i originally said I have been playing paintball casually for 3 years or so, and i dont have my own gun (iv been using my friends 98custom). I want a relatively cheap C02 marker with no complicated stuff (I.E electronic triggers) The Tippmann A5 seems perfect to me (cheap, High Bps, accurate, plenty of upgrades). If you have one i would love to here about its pros/cons or if you have something thats better for $150-250 let me know. or if you know any good reliable paint/have any upgrades (im looking at a longer barrel and a response trigger) please let me know.Some vids from Mike (thanks love your channel)The woods ball/tornament The tippmann show slg review pmr review Invert Mini review tanks gear bag

If I want a flat screwdriver in an odd size, I can take a piece of metal, heat it, pound it flat on one end and file or grind to shape; something within reach of even the clumsiest blacksmith. Is there some trick I'm missing that allows similarly simple home construction of a philps-style screwdriver? Or are they part of a plot to allow only factories to make screwdrivers :-)

Honey Bee Hive Box Joints Template

Do any of you woodworking wizards or experts know how to make a box joint template. I need to replace many of my Honey Bee Hive Supers (boxes) due to Bears, time & weather. The wood is pine and about seven-eighths thick , five and three quarters tall or high, twenty inches long for the front and back, the sides are sixteen and one quarter long by five and three quarters tall or high. This forms a box that holds ten extracting frames for the honey in combs. It weighs forty pounds when full of honey comb wax and honey. I like this size because it doesn't brake your back like the standard one that weigh in at eighty pounds when full! Although I use both sizes. Any ideas how to make this template will be deeply appreciated. I also have a multiple dado blade setup, so I can cut a pretty wide dado at one pass on the table saw. Thanks. Triumphman.
