War of the Worlds of the World

Yes, the title is correct. This site has collected cover art for printings of War of the Worlds from the past 110 years from around the world. It's a fascinating collection of artistic interpretations of H. G. Wells' classic book. Some of the aliens are menacing while others are cute and cuddly or look like a Disney character on acid. One lazy artist even put the USS Enterprise on the cover. WTF? War of the Worlds of the Worldvia Core77

What in the world is this? Answered

I found a metal object. It is cone shaped with a handle.  The cone has something inside that you can turn (from the top) to scrap around the inside.  Measurements of the cone is about 3 inches across bottom and 3 inches tall.  The handle is about 4 inches in length. If you turn the part that looks like a G it scraps the inside. Thanks to anyone smart enough to know. DD

Does anyone know what these are? We purchased a used desk a few years ago, and the other day my husband found a sealed envelope taped up under the underside of a drawer. He opened it and found 10 of these things. We showed them to someone from China, and they did not know what they were and said it is not Chinese. Does anybody know what these are, or what language this is?

"Hello world"

I appear to be tweeting. Unfortunately, I was beaten to plain old "Kiteman" by some Batman geek, so I am tweeting as KitemanX. Don't expect a constant stream of information, though, since I don't own a smartphone. Later... Dang, I've gained some strange followers - sexy Hallowe'en costumes, protein drinks for golfers, storage in Long Island, and what appears to be a conservative Floridian lobbying group (I don't dress sexy, I hate golf, I live in the UK and I'm randomly liberal). Update: I now have a number of cool followers, including some Instructablers, but I've also gained a random dentist and a Thai tourism company (not to mention the large number of NSFW spammers I've had to block...). Who's *your* weirdest follower?  Or your coolest?

World Clock Project

The World Clock Project takes a creative look at time. By taking clocks from around the world they're mixing time-zones and still keeping a relative view. It's thought provocative to think about time and how important it is to the human experience. Time is our most valuable currency, it's really the only thing we have. So it's interesting to see how important keeping track of it has been, we've been using Obelisks as sundials for over 5000 years, some of the most ancient artifacts from egypt were built to keep track of time.It's good to see that The World Clock Project is keeping time on our minds. Give it a shot, upload your clock and let us know where it is[http://world clock project upload http://worldclockproject.org/]-bg

World's Heaviest Motorcycle

Monster bike is world's heaviestA giant motorbike powered by a Russian tank engine has been recognised as the heaviest in the world.It's been dubbed the Led Zeppelin by creator Tilo Nieber, 39, who said: "You don't get much more heavy metal than this."The four-and-a-half tonne machine has driven into the Guinness Book of Records as the heaviest motorbike in the world.It is 17ft 4ins long and 7ft 6ins tall and the engine alone weighs 1.8 tonnes after the armour plating tank cover has been stripped off.The bike, which took a team of welders and mechanics almost a year to build at the Harzer Bike Schmiede in Zilly, Germany, is now hoping for a licence to travel on the road.But in the meantime Guinness Book of Records spokesman Amarilis Espinoza confirmed it was the world's heaviest motorbike.

World Domination for peace ?

Hey, i came up with a great idea and if you wanna support then tell me so. What about if everyone in the world was equal ? everything was free and everyone was rich ? . I was thinking of taking over the world for peace , equality and free things. I know it may seem the funniest and the scammest thing ever but i thing its a great idea. First thing would be that i would destroy all money and then build a big apartment building the size of usa. then everyone can stay in it, it would contain everything you could imagine. Then every day you could go to any place you want for free and when you need something a odder man would come every morning to take your odder and bring things for you from the store house which i am gonna build which gonna have everything you need the size of canada.

I've just been hit with sort of a crazy idea. Feel free to call me names, laugh at my insanity, or point out the problems with my idea; it will probably help relieve your stress, not to mention knock some sense into my head. Here's my crazy idea. What if everyone on Instructables collaborated to build the World's Greatest Instructable? Think about it. Where have you ever seen a larger community of people, specializing in all areas, who love to get things done, meeting together in one place to share ideas and "Show & Tell"? Where have you ever seen a place with 12 year olds who can weld, collaborating with 50 year old electronics professionals? Where have you seen a place where people vote for each others entries in contests and help with suggestions to other peoples entries who they are competing against? This is such a great place I can't help but believe that we would build something more awesome than the world had ever seen. We could all get together and make something spectacular and outstanding. Please, leave your ideas. Thanks.

Vuvuzela filtering for World Cup

The biggest complaint I keep hearing about the World Cup is about the vuvuzelas, plastic horns that get blown for everything and nothing. This makes me almost glad that I'm missing practically every game because of the broadcast times and the fact that my TV only has bunny ears for reception. Well, PopSci has found that some people are fighting back by filtering out the frequencies of the vuvuzelas at 233 Hz, 466 Hz, 932 Hz, and 1864 Hz. It's a good enough trick that it makes me almost want to upgrade my setup so that I can try it out. Simple Software Can Filter Out That Vuvuzela Whine From World Cup Broadcasts

The end is Here ?

This is an urgent call. I think the world would really come to an end because of the increase in natural disasters around the world. I think the world would certainly come to an end with a huge tsunami. Since the effects of global warming is here, within 5-10 years i am afraid to say that the world would certainly end. So do you think this is possible ? Thats why me and a couple of my friends are thinking of making a safehouse or ship where we could be safe in case of a tidal wave or other natural disasters. The problem is that we do not have any clue of what we are doing. i am thinking of making a anchored kinda ship which could acompany 5 people each. This ships would contain oxygen tanks with supply of about 2 years, food and safe drinking water wit seawater purifer, necesary tools and items, survival supplies and other necesary things. This ship should contain an onboard motor engine which could enable the ship to move in water. This ship should atleast protect the passengers from a big tsunami. It would contain a 5 passenger seating with folding beds and solar panels which could also power the engine and equipments inside. i really wanna build this because it's a fun project and could protect peoples lives who are poor and could not afford to go on a boat or are in low lying areas. So what do you think?
