Why?

Why do you do it? Whatever it is you do that brings you here. So many sciences clustered in one group of people from all walks of life...

Why is it...

Why is it I always find this type of contest after I've made the gift without documenting the process and the gift is nicely wrapped? It is just sitting there mocking me saying "Unwrap me and simulate the construction. You want another Dremel. You know you do."

Why?

Mission Statement: Nerf United Group's primary goal is to dremel, unscrew, and modify all nerf guns. As Stephen Colbert suggests 'Back off I have a gun'.

WHY

Just because you can it doesn't mean you should, WHY did anyone think it was a good idea to start having pictures wander over the screen, personally I just find it childish and annoying, but it blocks out all the text items as well making navigation difficult. So yeah cute trick, now grow up and stop messing about.

WHY?

 Why is the home page always changing format?  It looks more ridiculous every time! I remember when I first joined how their was two collums of different instructables.  This format was easy to sort though and you didn't have to look through all the stuff you DIDNT want to see and you could click on the vast variety of things you DID want to see.  Today when I logged on there is only one column of things and I cant even sort out what is recent and what is featured.  Please change the format back instructables robot. It is a lot simpler and looks more professional. EB

Why me?

I got home from school today and I log onto my old instructables acount (Matt1497) and I find out that it no longer exists. Please tell me why this is so! I had an instructable posted on it of which I took pride in. Sure I'd said some stupid/ignorant things on it but nothing that deserves being banned/deleted for! Please Instructables Staff/Community Help me out!

Why Im posting this forum

Ok, im in computer class at the moment. Normally, I would be playing halo now, but some jerk uninstalled halo on all but one of the computers (that one computer has halo full), and I cant reinstall it because Microsoft has taken down the trial download, and the filters are blocking alternative download pages. So im browsing Instructables in Google Chrome now, and i was so bored, I thought I would post this forum. Lulz :-P

Why if Im from Chile I can't be part of the contest and things like that. Only because I'm not from the USA? just for that? I really wanted to participate and start writing instructables of everything I'm learning, but I also wanna enter the contest that are in instructable, so please, give me an answer :( why I can't participate? I mean, yes I can participate... but if I win, I will automatically loose, because on the contest rules said that if you're not from one or another country, you're not legible to win or things like that...

Why waste the resistors? Answered

So I see a lot of projects with like 60 LEDs of the same type or something like that, and they use a separate resistor for each LED. Why do they do this? Why not just get one resistor and hook it up to ground or VCC? Please explain, thanks!

resistors for leds why?

I know i need resistors for leds, i know how to calculate what i need, etc. etc. but what im wondering about is why. why arent leds like glowing bulbs, what makes the difference in needing the resistor. also, why cant 1 resistor take care for multiple leds at the same time? please, if ur answering my questions, make it understandable english. im not comfortable enough in the world of science to understand that kinda stuff... (otherwise i wouldnt be asking these questions :D )

Why did this happen?

I was trying to make an led light out of the bulb and a battery. I connected the - to the + side(with a paper clip) and put the bulb on the plus side. It worked, but after about 10 seconds, I took it off and the plus side was really hot. I am a newb at this stuff so please tell me why this happened.

why in the world "ible" ?

It makes me wince when someone uses 'ible in the comments section of an Instructable. It just seems wrong, it doesn't make any sense, and it seems lazy. How did this come about? Who thought it made sense? Why did the A change to an I when someone was lazy and chopped off the INSTRUCT?

Why is there no "posted on" date?

Hey in my instructable Smart-Distance-Measuring-Tape-v2, I dont see the "posted on" date. I worked hard on this instructable and it din't get featured, so I commented on the clinic, where Ben Finio informed me about it. I think that may be a glitch and could be the reason why my instructable did not get featured.

Why are these resistors marked as such? Answered

Hi, I ordered a kit of assorted resistors (112 types, 10 of each), and it's awesome, however, some resistors are marked weirdly, like 1k8, 2k7, 1m8, 2m2, there's quite a few. What's the meaning of these?

Why preheat oven?

I rarely bake.  I understand preheating a pan when cooking somethin like eggs- so they dont stick.  When I toss a squash or somethin in oven, it seems like preheat is silly. Y? N? M?

Why are these doorknobs warm?

Hello world! I have a random issue that has been stumping my class since it began: the doorknob is warm. No other doorknob there is warm. There are a few other knobs in the room and they aren't warm, so I don't think it has to do with the heat difference. They aren't just a little warm, they are significantly warmer than other doorknobs. I'm in a room full of engineers and none of us have any idea why they're so warm!

why is the actuator not working!?

Hello All, I have setup the stage for the Firgelli actuator L12 -I, using an Arduino Mega + Adafruit Motor Shield (please take a look at pictures). I tested the circuit with a motor and the Adafruit "DC Motor" example code: it works. I then replaced the motor with the actuator using the same code: it does not work!! I would very much appreciate your help. Regards, Behzad.

Insurance- Why bother?

Insurance.  Why bother paying for it?  People say that by paying for insurance, you are protected and don't have to pay so much for repairs if something happens.  Wrong. Insurance companies do everything they can to not pay people. For example, in light of our recent burglary, mom went down to the insurance company we signed with to make a claim and get some money back.  However, we didn't get a single cent back due to a $1,000 deductible that applies to each individual item stolen.  Since none of the items stolen cost over $1,000, they didn't give us anything.  What really stinks is that when we signed up for their program, they had a $500 deductible, which applied to the total cost of everything stolen.  They basically jacked up their deductible, without notice to us.
