Shoe Suggestions? Answered

Hello all you in the Instructables Community. I need a new pair of shoes. They need to be casual yet can withstand the outdoors. I would like them to be in a reasonable price range though. I would prefer them to be in style if possible. If you have any suggestions that would be great! Thanks, joespicnictables

The Magical "Carry-on" Jacket, a Yes or a No?

Here’s a link, go take a look double fast comrades. http://www.scottevest.com/v3_store/Carry-on-Coat.shtm the zine "Ready made" decided to send me a copy of their Feb/March issue with an interesting article Pages 45-55 bare a article purposed to make you a better, faster, more efficient traveler. Page 53 and 52 describe the wondrous story behind a supposed "Wonder jacket" designed to replace air travel carry-on, which as we might remember, are growing increasingly heavier in fees and tags. The fruits of Scott Jordan's (an avid traveler and designer of the "Carry-on Jacket") laboring attempts to combat these fees glow proudly as his "Carry-on Jacket" comes to life. Much like a backpack, this jacket, and the many like it (like the one linked above and others on that website) have dozens of dozens of convenient pockets for all sorts of possible storage arrangements, ranging from spare change to I-pads. But how do they look? This all sounds like a great traverse breakthrough, but its totally useless if you look like a bloody tourist (which can be dangerous). Does anyone have anything like this, are there other brands. Does anyone have one in particular that they like? I need someone other than my magazine to vouch for it, or something like it, especially with a price tag like that. what about durability and comfort?

Toilets - Or better: How do you use one?

Ok, although we might not want to admit it but everyone of us sooner or later has some bodily functions that we take care of in private. For most of us the main difference between toilets, apart from the looks, would be wether it has a flat bowl or just water where everything drops in. The first type is mostly common in Europe while the "let it splash" type is used everywhere else - except of the Asian region. Check the attached pics for reference please. Which brings me to point of how to use a toilet... For a nice number two the western world prefers to sit down, some might even grab the newspaper but that's another story LOL In Asia however this concept is totally unknown and considered to be filthy and dirty. Here the prefered method to get rid of a number two is to squat - basically just a hole in the ground or a channel filled with water. For all those still struggling with the concept have a look here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7KBbjtan9Q I don't want to go into all details but if are living in a area with a great percentage of Asians you will often find public toilets and those in restrooms of your favourite restaurant in an usunsable condition. After all it is not easy to stand on a toilet seat (seems to be hard to fold it up) and let the number two find the right spot on the way down. So apart from cultural differences I do wonder about this: If western toilets are considered to be filthy and dirty compared to squat toilets, how do you consider them with footprints and the rest colored in a stinky brown? Could someone make me a nice, non-offensive comic like picture that explains the use of western toilets and that standing on the seat is definately not the right way? Would like to use it at my workplace (boss is fine with it as long as it is not offensive in any way).

Need Help with embellishing ideas. Awesome sheer fabric, no idea how or where to use it?

I have this great sheer fabric that is gray with these really neat flowers.  I have been trying to find a way to use it.  Ideallt I have to add it to a tube and make a it a sleeveless shirt.  But I have no clue how to do that.  i really dont want to have it ruffled or anything that would hide the great design on the fabric.  Its not completely sheer so if it pretty mcu has to be on top of white or light fabric.  Or on top of your skin.  Any ideas?  Or if I could turn a misfitted pencil skirt (a little too big and not fitted through the knee enough), shorten it and add the fabric to the bottom to make it a mini skirt with the sheer fabric fitting from the thight to the knee, like a pencil skirt.  I do not know how to use a pattern, and I dont have a dress form, so I have to do it by measuring and by eye.  Thanks so much! PS...Its a really sofisticated fabric, so some of the ideas Ihave seen for embellishing are too unfinished or "funky". Could not find pic of axactly what I want But Megan fox is wearing a dress with the stype of sheer style I like.  possibly making it V neck would be good.  Remember, mine has detailing.

Maybe someone out there has worked in a muffin shop or bakery and could share their expertise. If you're worried about blowing the whistle I can assure you that I do not want to make a profit and am not planning to open my own bakery. I just have a weakness for those muffins and i'm a single mother who can't afford to treat myself to such an extravagance every day. I would greatly appreciate it as I can no longer cope with the feelings of guilt knowing I should be saving that money for my sweet little daughter :( . I would be forever grateful :)

I've looked online trying to find out but can't find a reference to the style anywhere. There are a couple overpriced examples on ebay but even their sellers don't know the style. It's kind of a combination of a snifter and a shot glass and is quite adept at making mixed drinks.  I managed to find one at a thrift store after seeing a friend's but haven't found a reasonably-priced one elsewhere. The examples I've seen on ebay have Coors logos on them so I imagine it's supposed to be some sort of beer glass, if that helps.
