Dude you've got to get some of these glowsticks:

They're brighter than any glowstick I've ever seen and glow for 12 hrs without dimming. They've been my obsession recently. Highly recommend ordering some thin paracord to make the ultimate party necklace/poi/source of happiness for each of your friends.

Other suggestions for your get-together:

My friends and I like to move all the furniture out of the middle of the living room to create open floor space for dancing and sprawling out on the ground. Make a huge pile of blankets and pillows in the middle of the room and set the speakers up right in front of it!

We also love to get variety packs of different craft beers and try them while rolling! Things taste so different you may be surprised!

Obviously water is very important. It can be very nice to squeeze a lemon or lime into your ice water for a refreshing zing. Really perks you up!

15 people is a large group, so there's a good chance you'll have people in different moods/states of mind. It may be a good idea to set up 2 or 3 different rooms with different lighting, music, vibes so if anyone isn't feeling where they're at, they can move elsewhere.

Fruit is always a great idea. Just make sure to cut it up beforehand so you aren't dealing with knives while impaired lol.

Cigarettes and or vapes if you guys use nicotine. The smoking area is always a popular spot to hang out during a roll party!

Vicks vapor rub is also great to rub on each other's faces/necks while rolling so a little jar of that would be awesome.

Shes' gonna need a wig

And a good set of goggles

someone needs to wear these maybe even her...

You should decorate the lab with this

These would be great to fill with candy as party favors

.... or ....

TEST TUBE BUBBLES!!!! These things are touchable bubbles. PRO TIP: USe ONLY OUTSIDE. Shit makes a mess on the carpet. Easy to vacuum... but still...

Crazy cookie cutters which are perfect for this!

Temporary tattoos

Atomic super balls would be fun too!

A jello brain mold

Biohazard bags for party favors maybe

A geyser aka mentos/coke mixer for kids. That looks fun enough to get for myself. lol

Gravity goo something I would also play with. lol

Insta-snow seems like a good experiment for kids

I should stop now. I used to love planning my kids parties when they were little. Damn them for growing up.

u/littlegrill · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

What a cool theme! I hope your daughter has a brilliant birthday party.

You could serve individual different flavours of jelly (jello in the US, right?!) is these petri dishes.

You could use these specimen bags as party bags! These touchable bubbles come in test tubes and are pretty fun!

These molecule model kits were always good fun in science at school - maybe you could incorporate this into a party game? Or else make a few molecules and have them as table decorations!

Thank you for this contest! If I win, surprise me! I hope the party planning goes well.

u/da_na_na_na_Cat_Man · 1 pointr/ar15

Used a long marker, and angled it in maybe 20 degrees. Traced everything, then used a utility knife with a fresh blade and cut straight down. Peeled the majority of the material back with my fingers, Kaizen foam has layers you can peel back, but it won't come out in that layer perfectly clean. Test fit everything, cut away more where needed, in small increments because I wanted it super clean looking. Once I got the outline exactly how I wanted it, took a dremel with an abrasive stone head, and pointed it straight down and used it to clean up the lumpy, messy, bottom. Even punching straight down to remove material (especially for the magazine slots this was necessary) it was very effective. Just had to be careful with it, and it worked like a charm! Cleaned up the corners with some careful exacto knife work.

u/melarky · 1 pointr/tortoise

I'm not sure how much advice you need, so I'll give you a round-up since it sounds like you aren't too familiar with your redfoot yet - forgive me if I'm overstepping here. (Number one question, are you sure it's a redfoot?)

Ours is only about 6 inches long/4.5 inches wide and, since we keep her in an apartment for now, she lives inside one of these stock tubs:

Depending on just how big yours is, it wouldn't be the worst idea to stick with the kiddie pool indoors - but if it were me, depending on her size, I would try to get a second pool, cut some of the walls out, and try to make one big/long pool. If she's as big as I envision, the ideal situation would be that she gets at least half of a small bedroom. ;)

She'll need some flooring/substrate in there, and you'll want to have some UV lamps and a heat lamp suspended above his home (there is some good advice about these three elements on this page: http://tortoiseyard.com/creating_a_home_for_your_redfoot_tortoise.htm). You might need to construct something out of wood or metal to hang these lights from. If there's a reptile store anywhere near you you might give them a call or visit to see if they have any suggestions, too.

She's also going to need a soaking/drinking dish. She should be able to climb in and out of the dish pretty easily, and it should be deep enough to soak in without having to submerge her face or strain her neck. Keep the water pretty clean cause she'll drink out of it too (ours likes to poop in the water so keep an eye out for that). Soaking is very important!

They also really like moderately high humidity (being a tropical/subtropical tortoise), so I have a reptile fogger (a glorified humidifier) that pipes in steam to the tank. Too much or too little is problematic, but if the air in your home is dry this is definitely a must-have, and you can figure out what's best as you go.

Do you have feeding under control? Stay away from pellet food unless you're really desperate and go for diet as described here (http://redfoottortoise.com/redfoot_tortoise_diet.htm) and here (http://tortoiseyard.com/diet.htm). Try to keep uneaten food out of the cage lest you attract bugs. Get him some cuttlebones (just search it on Amazon) and leave it in his cage - replace it when you see it has been eaten!

u/lavendarlandslide · 6 pointsr/LSD

Oh maaan, well Shambs was actually my first ever... everything. First rave, first festival, first trip, first time experiencing EDM. My friends took me under their wing (they have a tradition of spoiling a newbie every year) so I mostly followed them around. Dirtmonkey was memorable AF, I danced around and put for rectal use only stickers on everybody's totem that was there. Pigeon Hole's sunday night set was awesome (despite them being a fill-in). Boogie T was unreal, we just sat at the front of the Pagoda and let PK fuck us up haha. Neon Steve was super rad cause I got to go on stage, BTSM was one of the few artists I was familiar with PRIOR to shams, and honestly I discovered Rezz and fell in love with her! I'm lowkey bummed I missed Dimond Saints and Whipped Cream tho. Overall, 12/10 experience. Changed my life. I will absolutely be there next time with much much much more appreciation for the artists now that I'm more familiar with them and loving the music.

u/rlconkl · 10 pointsr/PostCollapse

Great start! Feel free to x-post to /r/bugout, as they'll have some more suggestions. Here are my thoughts:

  • I agree with gittenlucky: if the first-aid kit is mostly off-the-shelf, you may want to consider adding some pain killers, anti-diarrhea, and any prescription meds you might require. Some people also recommend iosat tabs, if you're concerned about nukes. If you're comfortable collecting and using them, also consider minor surgical gear, antibiotics, etc. Maybe some sun/bug protection? If you're walking, moleskin and foot powder?

  • Although I noticed you have at least one pull-top food can, the P-38 can opener is lighter and surprisingly effective. If you're interested in lightening the load, they're available cheaply. Lighter than carrying cans, you might alternatively consider a stack of Datrex bars.

  • While the candles might be romantic on a calm day, I'd swap them out for a flashlight, head light, or a pack of chemical glow lights. Each stick lasts about 8 hours and is pretty bright.

  • Have you considered any defensive items, even if it's as benign as pepper spray?

u/cmagnuson · 5 pointsr/boostedboards

I purchased Shred Lights for my v1 board and I don't like them. They're tough to remove/clip on, touching them instantly covers your fingers with road grime, and they don't light up enough of the pavement to safely ride at full speed. Remembering to remove them to charge and remembering to remount them again after charging is also bothersome.

When I ride at night, I wear a headlamp around my thigh and a red LED reflective belt around my waist. Light and Motion makes the highest quality lights I've ever used and their customer support is fantastic. I definitely recommend the Solite 250 EX. The reflective LED belt I linked to isn't special, but it does the job of making you visible from behind.

Because the headlamp is elevated off the ground by a few feet, it doesn't cast long shadows like board-mounted headlights do. It can also be angled so that it lights up the ground some distance in front of the board so that riding at full speed is safe. A headlamp around your thigh also allows the light to move left and right when you turn, allowing you to see your way around corners. While it may feel goofy to wear at first, a thigh-mounted headlamp works extremely well on a Boosted Board.

I also cover the side of the deck with reflective tape so that I'm a little more visible from the side. This reflective tape is perfectly sized for the job.

u/Antranik · 2 pointsr/bicycling

I agree that the reflectors are a great idea. Here is some awesome reflective tape! you could put anywhere on your bike! The wheels or pedals are great spots because they are moving and will catch a drivers attention super fast. I agree that headlamps make for an excellent light! Wal-mart sells pretty good ones for $5. I recommend people in the market for one to get the small one that has ONE led and uses a small battery as opposed to multiple LED's and bigger batteries because that extra weight is very annoying on your forehead, but if it's a small one and light, it's very comfortable

u/KunduzCity2012 · 2 pointsr/news

Better than road flares - Spend the $10 and get a box of ChemLights (http://www.amazon.com/Cyalume-ChemLight-Military-Chemical-Duration/dp/B0052ZAPXU).

Tie a piece of string through the loop on a few of them (but don't crack them). In case of an emergency like in the article, you can crack the light to activate it and spin it in a circle (called a NATO Buzzsaw) that is VERY VERY obvious to see from a distance. It will make people stop their car well in advance. You can use other ChemLights to block off the lane the way road flares are used. If you have a passenger(s) to perform NATO Buzzsaws, it will be much safer for you to help someone that got in an accident or needs help changing a tire.


Everyone should be certified in CPR if they can; it's not as difficult as it sounds. It's ~$80 for the first 2-year certification through the American Heart Association (much cheaper than through the Red Cross) and then I believe $40 for renewals after that. The importance of CPR is not to save someone on your own, but to keep someone alive long enough for EMTs/emergency physicians to arrive.

I'd also recommend blankets in your trunk, and a first aid kit with gauze wraps in place of band-aids, preferably compression bandages. A Tourniquet is great if you know how to use it but be careful, some states have laws against using them.

u/SarahC · 5 pointsr/electronics

Complete bill of materials (£250 though some you may have already, like camera and 20v power supply):


Flyback transformer, 35kV, (£8)

ZVS Oscilator to drive flyback (£8) (both come as a pack here)



X-Ray phosphor screen (£20)

(Terbium-doped gadolinium oxysulfide (Gd2O2S:Tb) scintillator pixels which are embedded into a polyethylene substrate. Normal price £400)



X-Ray source - 2X2A USA MULTI OFFER 5 PIECES (£15)



Geiger counter (£80)



A digital camera with a long exposure ability. (£100)


A tripod (or table) for the camera. (£30)


And a power supply - DON'T GO OVER 20 volts - the flyback WILL pop.

It will draw around .6 amps if working correctly.


You NEED AT LEAST 500 µSv (Microsieverts) per hour - this will produce a glow on the screen BARELY visible in complete darkness.




The X-Rays mostly come out from INSIDE the "dome" on the top of the vacuum tube, in the shape very similar to a half opened umbrella. Not much comes out the top - they're VERY soft X-Rays at 25kV, so VERY HARMFUL TO ORGANIC stuff because your body WILL absorb MOST of the X-Rays.



It will kill you from the 30,000 volt power source.

It will give you cancer from the X-Rays (ionising radiation tears DNA apart).

It can give you ionising radiation burns in the short term (ionising radiation tears cells apart).

It can damage DNA in your family jewels, producing deformed babies/sterility.


If you don't have a Geiger counter and lead shielding, as well as high voltage experience, you're best bet is learn about radiation and HV and do little experiments weeks before you try something like this. If you don't know what the "one hand rule" is, or what ionising radiation does, it's best to stay well clear!



Hard X-Rays mostly pass through your body, but you'll need a voltage of 75kV for that.

I have had MOST success with the following (NOT SHOWN: the results.)


Canon 7D Mk 2, ISO 5000, F1.8, 20 second exposure using the 50mm £50 prime lens AT FULLY OPEN APERTURE.

Pre focus it on the screen using some newspaper or something laying ON the phosphor sheet to focus on.

Turn on "Manual focusing", set up the camera to those settings, turn off all the lights HIDE all your LED's in the room, they WILL light up the screen. (I left an orange power LED on and my screen looks pink!)


Turn on the X-Ray machine! Press the shutter, exit the room. Run back in and turn off X-Rays.


BOOM! Picture.


X-Rays make CUMULATIVE DNA damage - all the doses are added together even days apart, so be careful!


Here's two exposures UNEDITED - in Photoshop the noise can be reduced, and the green phosphor turned to blue, like the standard X-Ray sheets.



The X-Ray sheets online are black and clear - and the plastic sheet they're on is tinted blue because back then they thought the blue increased contrast to the eye - it doesn't.


If you turn the image black and white, fiddle with the contrast, and then colorise the image to Cyan..... you'll get the same X-Ray result!


The sheets from X-Ray cassettes are AWESOME. Plastic phosphor layer, and a BLACK back layer - the light you see isn't leaking from the blue light of the tube, it's only from the phosphor lighting from X-Rays.


(I used a paper card version for those first images, so they didn't benefit from this contrast increase)


Good luck!

u/stillin-denial55 · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

You could spend $25 on a trash can and maybe $5-10 on stuff trying to get it to seal.

Or you could spend $55 on an HDPE drum with the seal built in.

I'd look up what your can is made out of, reference this to see if it is safe. Also what temps it can hold. I like HDPE because I can dump hot liquid in it without worry.

But really, sealing isn't that necessary. Keep bugs out, but that's really it. No oxidation concerns. More on infections later.

As far as heat, I wouldn't worry. Many of the esters and phenols created from hot fermentation will be cut out with your early heads. It's really not a big issue. But 70-80f would be great for whiskey, and and I wouldn't expect it to get any higher even with the thermal mass of 20-25 gallons.

And sanitation... Well. I don't really worry too much. I spray my fermenter down with water and store it open, upside down. No sanitizer, not really necessary. But if you really want, spraying starsan should be fine. Mild infections are good for complexity though, so a lot of people skip it.

I did recently get a bit of mold when I stored it incorrectly and had some liquid... Whoops. Luckily HDPE can be bleached.

u/PotatosAreDelicious · 4 pointsr/motorcycles

It's very simple. Get something like this and then this for the smaller stripe.
You could do it without a clear coat but the clear coat will make it more resistant to pealing/chipping/more permanent. If you do decide to do a clear coat it's not coming off unless you sand the clear coat and your paint off.
Most helmets/bikes come like this from the factory with their vinyl stickers etc placed on and then just clear coated over.

u/wallysmith127 · 12 pointsr/boardgames

Great list! Adding QOL/bling improvements to games is definitely one of my favorite aspects of the hobby.

Some of my personal favorite add-ons:

  • Vinyl tape: Reusable, cheap, adds zero bulk to stacks of cards. (Edit: Damn, when I bought the tape it was $3.94. Now it's $10.13. But there are 1.5" rolls from the same manufacturer for $3.29)

  • Uberstax: Highly customizable modular plastic pieces especially useful for large hands of cards (Gloomhaven) and card markets (Argent: The Consortium). Not cheap though.

  • Stickers: Building on a post here a long time ago where winners would sign the box lids, we started buying stickers to go alongside the signatures.
u/sir_rideout · 2 pointsr/bikecommuting

If local laws permit, the 319 bridge over the river looks like a safer bet than the 153 due to its much wider shoulder. I didn't see any signs on the onramp prohibiting bikes on the highway, but check with the Department of Highways (or whatever its called in Tennessee) to be sure.

I suggest picking up front and rear lights ($25-30 should get you a basic set), and some sort of high visibility vest (like this or this). If you're riding after dark, some reflective tape on the bike would make you stand out in headlights.

Good luck, and stay safe.

u/boenig787 · 1 pointr/aquaponics

That's what I use with my fish tank and it holds up just fine! Just stain the wood so it is resistant to water and makes it look nice.

That is pretty expensive for a grow bed. For less than half the price, you can get a 50gal Rubbermaid and I highly recommend these. They are very sturdy; I use a 100gal tank for my fish. The 50gal would be perfect as grow beds! I hope this helps and PM me if you have anymore questions!


u/SecuritySquirrel · 0 pointsr/privacy

Meet in a "Publicly accessible private place".

An example would be to book a hotel room in a hotel with at least 4 floors and more than 50+ rooms. Check into the room as normal and tell the other party, preferably in a secure manor like an encrypted e-mail, the room number. That other party can go directly to your room and meet you there. You now have control over who goes into the room and what happens in there.

You can sweep the room prior to the other party arriving for surveillance devices if you wish with devices like this & this and when they arrive you can have them put any mobile devices into a faraday bag.

u/prc90 · 1 pointr/motorcycles

Depending upon the back pack you can add some reflective tape to it help you been seen. 3M sells some pretty inexpensive reflective tape that I used on my riding back pack. This stuff sticks to pretty much anything and you don't need a ton of it for it to be very effective. I made a diamond shape on the center of my back pack then flanked it with some strips of tape. I also added a strip on the top of the straps by my shoulders.

u/Gixug · 5 pointsr/bicycling

We're bike brothers! I have the exact same bike. :)

Just a note, the paint will scuff around the areas where the black cable routing rubs against the white paint. I'd get a roll of helicopter tape and put some strips right under those spots.

I also recommend ditching the white tires and the white bar tape. That was one of the first things I did because after about two rides, they're both completely grey.

Congrats on the bike! You obviously have excellent taste. ;)

u/BeerDrinkingRobot · 3 pointsr/bicycling

Amazon: 3m 36" x 2" Red $5.46


Ebay: 120" x 2" alternating red/white DOT certified tape: $12

I have some of the cheep 36" 3m tape (in white) and shining a light on it in a dark garage it definitely helps, has held up great though mud/rain.

The DOT certified tape is probably better (same stuff you see on semi-trailers). Looks like it has bigger hex reflector pattern.

u/SomeChicagoan · 1 pointr/bugout

Thanks for the feedback!

  1. Yeah, I know. I ordered a pack of ten and just threw the whole lot in there. One thing I do like about the chem lights is their duration. At 8hrs each, they last longer than a few AAAs in the head lamp and, when hung overhead, the white ones do a decent job of illuminating a campsite.
  2. Laughing when I took the pictures, I even thought about removing the booze from the shot. I got them for free on one of my recent flights, and just tossed them in the bag. I figured, for their light weight, it couldn't hurt.
  3. Good call on the mylar blanket. I'll add a couple and some paracord for rigging.
  4. I know... I know... It is at the top of the pack for quick access. I've put it on several times, and can get a seal pretty reliably. Even if you discount its chemical/biological use, I thought it might serve dual-duty protecting against airborne dust. (I was recalling ground-zero pictures post 9/11.) Thoughts?
  5. Good call on the extra winter gear. Likewise, I assumed I'd already have winter coat/gloves with me, if the season dictated, but being exposed for longer than a typical commute would require more. I'll be adding that.

    Thanks again!
u/Aerik · 1 pointr/bicycling

These are exactly what I have on my spokes, they work really well. I also took the extra hub stickers and put them on my helmet instead.

Also in auto parts stores or paint stores (interestingly) or the corresponding departments of a larger store, you can find reflective tape. So far I've found white and red. I also usually find it right next to an identically sized green tape, but that one's not reflective, so don't fall for it. It'll be about two inches wide and not that long, it's kind of expensive. like this (though what I found wasn't that expensive)

If you cut it half as wide you can put it down the smaller parts of your frame (such as the chain guide), on pedal cranks, strips on your helmet, on any chain/cog guards, and if you really have steady and accurate fingers, around your spokes just like the Light weights stickers. Use full-width strips to make rings on the fuller parts of your frame.

I even took a leftover bit of the reflective tape and put it on the vinyl tube of my hydration pack, which hangs from the right strap. When I tuck it up into the left strap, I have a perfectly symmetrical reflective line across my chest.

I suppose if you don't mind wasting a whole lot of tape, or using a bunch of odd leftover scraps, you could lay the tape over the divots in your helmet and use a razor blade to cut out exactly the elliptical shape that's concave relative to the convex overall shape of your helmet. That would be cool to see. I don't have the guts yet.

The tapes can often be more reflective than the cheapo reflectors that come with your bike, so it's also not at all a bad idea to cover those surfaces as well.

Finally there' s the biggest amount of coverage you could possibly get, cover your frame. Or less extreme but definitely beyond the norm, buy fenders and cover those.

u/ladyllana · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Putting party favors in these would be hilarious!

You could also do an "experiment" with these where they have to taste different foods to see the changes in flavor.

Well, I don't know all of the variants used.
I do know some old ones, some standard issue ones, and some advanced ones.

The tags used for pets are around the size of a grain of rice. Doubt you have one of those.
Check your jacket and try to make your room use less consistent.

Audio bugs could be used on your phone by taking control of your microphone. Yes, hidden services could use your location, they track the 'cells' your phone connects to every time you change areas or use it. A competent, well-equipped group could track your phone if it was off or in airplane mode. Take the battery out, or remove the GPS temporarily. Some people go as far as to disconnect their cameras and microphones when not using.
Though, these are tech savvy people. The easiest method is the occasional use and burner.

Shop around though, this one has mixed reviews. You also could check out a safe/discrete networking guide.

Someone could install a small brick thing under your car, like what the FBI used to use.
A mechanic or trained eye would most likely notice. They were pathetically clunky in the day, but must be better, now that 'the internet of things' is beginning.

The best source of information, by far in this decade, is obviously a cell.
Most people are dependent on their phones.

The simple solution is to leave the item at home, if you're concerned, or, once again, get a throw away [burner].

I don't want to encourage unnecessary paranoia.

u/Threid · 1 pointr/buildapc

I've built 5 PCs without a wrist strap, but some people swear by them, and they're definitely the safest option. Your best bet would be an online retailer. They are super-cheap (generally <$5, and here's one for <$2), but look kind of silly imo.

u/gambiter · 1 pointr/exjw

This has done the trick for me. At this point, my fade is complete, and I've realized I don't even care if they come to my house... but I've literally seen them walk up, see the sign (above the doorbell) and turn and walk away. It's pretty great.

u/deepteeth · 3 pointsr/financialindependence

Do you have a light-colored jacket you always wear? Rather than a safety vest, just grab some super reflective tape and put it on your jacket, bike, helmet, panniers, etc. Definitely worth investing in a bright, rechargeable light set as well.

u/BreeStephany · 1 pointr/Tools

You could always make shadowed socket holders out of Kaizen foam and place the sockets exactly where you want them. You can use a hot knife, long thin razor knife and/or a hole saw kit to make cut-outs for your sockets.

A wood burning kit like THIS works great on the foam for making finger grip holes and for cleaning up the bottoms of shadowed spots that are less than the thickness of the foam.

FastCap's long nose permanent markers are great for marking out the patterns of your sockets or other tools for you to cut on.


Just my two cents.

u/Khisanth05 · 2 pointsr/mead


Here is the container. It's definitely air tight, and very durable and thick. Can't beat the price, free shipping with Amazon prime. I think, including everything, the ingredients were more expensive than the whole setup lol.

u/IsaacClarkeSNL · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I don't want to sound like your mom or anything butt it might be worth getting some black reflective tape so people see you better at night. I have an all black bike and when me and my father swapped bikes at night if you were viewing him from the side or even quartering he was pretty damn invisible. Just speaking from experience.

Stuff like this.

I've attached these to my frame and helmet, they've lasted through 2 heavy winters. I found a 1cm wide section wraps almost perfectly around most spokes and is visible from a good distance. If you're creative you can trace designs onto it and cut them out with an x-acto knife.

u/RahRahWakeForest · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I had to do a double take to check that I didn't post this last night without remembering.

I am going through this same process with the 10x14 attic space above our bedroom. I started off with Plan B and tried a few different methods. Filter bags filled up much too quickly and would have been expensive but they did a great job of containing the mess. I have a Dust Deputy attached to my vacuum which helped, but inevitably, the shopvac would get clogged with insulation that made it out of the vortex. My most recent adaptation was to attach the dust deputy to the top of a 40 gallon airtight drum I bought from amazon and then use some old pantyhose around the shopvac filter. This greatly extends my times between either emptying the shopvac or emptying the 40 gallon barrel. Inevitably the shopvac gets filled first but the pantyhose does a great job of keeping the filter in usable shape.

I did buy a Toro leaf blower/vacuum and it worked well but I didn't have an airtight container at the time so the fine insulation would just blow out from under the lid of the trash can I was using. If you have ANY holes in the tubing, you will have a dusty mess on your hands. I plan on retrying this method on the remainder of my attic in the next couple of weeks. If/when it doesn't work adequately, I will buy some insulation bags from Amazon and that should finish the job for me.



I'm not going to try this(or I might) but I think if you daisy chained two dust deputies and two drums, you would be absolutely fine with a shopvac.

I also made the mistake of failing to consider the difficult in mixing the Green Fiber cellulose bales without their machine once I had removed the old insulation. I only needed 7 bags for above our bedroom but man was that a PITA. I used a concrete mixer attached to my battery powered drill and managed to get in a great rhythm but having the machine would have been a million times easier.

The straps go to the two attachment rings at the front of the trunk, up and over the trunk lid where I've protected the paint with some helicopter tape.



The instructions for the receiver hitch said not to attach a cantilevered load like this without reinforcing with straps.


I don't have this thing on very often, but we're going camping tonight and it will be a lot easier to pack this way. I'll probably just have the cooler on it.

You can buy helicopter tape for cheap.


tape everywhere that will rub on the bike, even top tubes . keeps the frame looking like new. prevents cable rub, and its clear and very hard to see.

your frame will be fine, stick a patch of tape over the area so it doesnt get worse.

I've got a couple of these and like them. They are above your price range, but were the lowest cost ones I felt comfortable purchasing. I've owned mine for nearly 2 years and haven't had a problem with them. I've even tested them extensively shooting them with dental x-ray systems to ensure they were accurately reporting.

So I suffer from nausea a lot. Buy a pack of emesis bags like this...


That’s not the only brand. Just check for “emesis bag.” You tie up the top by putting the top of the bag into one of the ring slashes. These can be folded into a small frisbee shape. One can fit in must purses. Carrying one around might help you feel more comfortable in general when going out because you have what you need if you get nauseous (like in a store or something).

I’m not sure if pharmacies carry them or not.

Yes, it is a real risk! But prevention is easy, just keep touching the case or any other metallic object every few minutes (with very high-end components I get OCD and do it every 2-3 mins).

If you want to do something crafty with your daughter, you could try to cut some of this 3m reflective tape into interesting shapes: http://www.amazon.com/3M-Scotchlite-Reflective-Silver-36-Inch/dp/B000BQRIV2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1452464185&sr=8-1&keywords=3m+reflective+tape. My experience with that tape is that it is very reflective, but you'll want to replace it after a couple years.

If you want something reflective on the spokes, these work pretty well: http://www.amazon.com/Lightweights-Power-Reflectors-Wheels-86-Piece/dp/B002KYFWQ6/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1452464201&sr=8-4&keywords=reflective+bicycle+spoke

Also, Vespertine makes some reflective flower pins and such. My wife has one, so I can tell you they are definately very reflective, but they are kind of silly expensive: http://shop.vespertinenyc.com/category/jewelry. I'm not sure exactly where I can just get a sheet of whatever they are made of to make my own stuff.

u/ToadScoper · 2 pointsr/Aquariums

Hmm, quite the predicament. Here is a solution that might work for you (this is for the goldfish)- go to a local hardware store or tractor supply or landscape store and try to find an all purpose tub, storage tote, or practically any large container, somewhere around 30-50 gallons. Most of these tubs are fish safe, and are very cheap. For filtration use a large sponge filter and pump which are a very cheap and a effective alternative to normal filters. I wouldn’t worry about heat at the moment as this is meant to be temporary, and goldfish can handle it briefly. I wouldn’t but any decorations or substrate in the tub, just leave it bare. This setup is actually widely used in the goldfish hobby, so it’s a great choice.
Here’s the supplies list on amazon for your convenience, but keep in mind you could also go and look for these products cheaper elsewhere and don’t have to be the exact ones

you can constantly wear a grounding strap like this


But i build PC's all the time and I have never used a grounding strap. Whats more important is to make sure you don't produce statics. Don't wear socks and run over carpet for example. You can always ground yourself by touching, for example, a heat radiator or the grounding part in an electrical outled.

do yourself a favor and use a self sealing tape or dry vinyl tape. It's cheap, and won't turn into a mess like electrical tape will on a harness.

But that little bucket will quickly get clogged / problematic.

I might recommend something like this or this. You can easily add a bulkhead fitting and give yourself a way to have the water spill back in the pond. Then you pack a few mint / horsetail / lizard tail in there and you won't have much of a water clarity problem at all.

Too much plant filtration is just right.

PS. this is a great product as well, but you can't fit as many plants in it. 1 pot of mint would do wonders tho.

So what I would do is get a piece of magnetic imaging film [1] and survey the desk area for fields. Besides that I would introduce an insulator, for any development board I work on, I have used those green craft boards [2] which are seem to be great insulators. You might also try using a wrist connected grounding strap [3]. If there are any electrical posts built into the table, unplug them, and inspect the insulators and neutral & ground runs.

Yes. There are devices made specifically for this used in electronics manufacturing all the time. Generally it'll be a wrist strap (or foot strap) that is conductive and plugs into a ground to discharge static continuously, but if you just want to avoid getting shocked you simply need to move the point of discharge away from your body. Holding onto a conductive (non-grounded) object like a steel rod and touching that rod to a conductive, grounded surface will discharge the static but you shouldn't feel anything since the discharge is between the two conductive surfaces and not your skin and something else.

OK, this probably won't be the most well reviewed response, but it worked for me. Just be aware you need a trailer for this.

After a few years of evap ponds, and other things, I got frustrated and just bought 2 of these. I thought would need them both, but in reality, I used maybe 1/2 of one with gray water from showers and cooking. Put some bleach in it from time to time. Dumped it at a gray water approved place after the burn. 7 people will maybe fill 1 if you aren't sloppy.

u/cycobiz · 3 pointsr/Trucks

> Splice them into your trailer wiring

That's what I did. I went up about 4" from the 7-pin plug, cut the necessary wires, used uninsulated butt connectors with a closed-barrel crimper and adhesive-lined heat shrink to splice in a 6-pin Deutsch DT connector pigtail, then built my own wiring harness that plugs into the Deutsch connector and ran it up to the headache rack.

Went with the 6-pin Deutsch connector since I only needed 5 of the 7 wires (LT, RT, Tail, Backup, and Ground) and 5-pin Deutsch connectors aren't available. Deutsch DT connectors are frequently used in the automotive aftermarket (probably more so than Delphi Weatherpack connectors). I know Rigid Industries uses them for their LED lights, and Smith Race Wire uses them for parts of their custom wiring harnesses.

Also, since you can only close-barrel crimp one end of the uninsulated butt connectors, I chose to close-barrel crimp the side that had only one wire (since closed-barrel crimping is more secure, and the one wire was looser in the connector) and used Channel Lock 909 Pliers to crimp the end with two wires.

Once you made your harness, make sure you slip it into some split wiring loom. Using a loom insertion tool makes quick work of that. Wrap the wiring loom with non-adhesive dry vinyl tape for a factory-finished look and to avoid a gooey, sticky mess in case you need to unwrap the wiring harness in the future.

Finally, a good wire stripper will save your hands a lot of fatigue compared to using a standard wire stripper that you have to always pull the wire through.

u/BallsOutKrunked · 2 pointsr/preppers

I'm in California where our two largest concerns (mine, anyway) are earthquakes and fire.

For earthquakes it's standard preparation stuff because aspects of grid can shut down for short or long periods of time. There's also the "get out of the house now!" type situation which is really just shoes and a flashlight, or just your human body. If your bag is downstairs and you're upstairs you're not going to run to a bugout bag first. It's just get out (depending on the quake, the building, etc).

I do have a bugout bag primarily for fire evacuation, which has:

  • Important docs. Homeowners policy, our will, healthcare directives, passports, social security cards, etc.
  • A printed road map of the state (thin book).
  • A kickass little am/fm radio.
  • A handheld 2m radio programmed with area repeaters, I have a mag antenna in my truck.
  • Geiger counter. Way over the top for people to have but I bought one so where else would I put it.
  • 4 way water key.
  • Spare credit cards, some cash.
  • Medications we need.
  • USB chargers.

    I also have a google spreadsheet printed out that has the items we want to take. The evacuation orders can come at any time and you might be knee deep in some project or sick on the couch, you need to be able to mindlessly grab items that a smarter-you considered bringing. The bag is just the one that we're really screwed if we don't have. This is my list, it's taped under my desk at home.

    Edit: also, there's a column for different family members. My kids have stuff they're supposed to grab (a change of clothes, etc) while mine has the chainsaw and a shovel.

    It's possible you'll have less than 20 seconds to escape your home but chances are you'll have at least a few minutes, maybe even a few hours. Having a list of things to grab from the house thought out in advance seems reasonable to me. And some stuff that's super useful (like dumping everything from the medicine cabinet into a bag) is more of an instruction than an item, per say.

    Dolls (for kids)


    EMT gear

    Backpacking food


    Gasoline tanks

    Wet wipes

    Toilet Paper



    Map (Marked)

    AA/AAA Batteries



    Solar Panel



    Medicine Cabinet


    2m Radio

    10 gallons water

    2m base antenna

    2m pvc ant mast

    I also have a list of things I need to do if I leave the house, again this is tailored to fire evacuation. This is taped to the inside door of our utility closet. Easy to find but house guests aren't staring at it and we can keep our home more "homey" looking versus a forward operating base. These are taken from CalFire's suggestions and my own experience in and around fire.


  • Remove flammable window shades, curtains.
  • Remove flammable objects from walls, windows, doors.
  • Shut off gas (crescent wrench).
  • Turn on all lights.
  • Turn off HVAC.
  • Place flammable items in open area.
  • Connect garden hose, drag to driveway, charge hose, controlled by gun nozzle.
  • Place buckets of water in driveway.
  • Place ladder in driveway, visible.

Couple things to add for the shopping list: especially for the 3am part:

Safety Vest

Slap light for left ankle to identify your edge


About $25 for the above.

Rear mirror

Make sure the bike has the standard reflectors on the spokes, pedals, front and back as well.

Reflective tape if you are riding an all black or dark bike - wrap strips around your spokes, frame and seatpost

Some would say ALL THE ABOVE TOGETHER Is overkilling it and maybe it is all it takes is one semi-drunk who did a couple too many shots blasting down some rural road at 4am doing 90mph to end you.

Even just a glancing blow off the side of a big 4x4 mirror rig could fuck you up bad and NOW YOU'RE DOWN.

You're laying on the side (if you're lucky and didn't get hung up and dragged) of a rural road at 5am waiting for the next drunk to come along and finish the job.

This is a real concern.

Now if this happens and you are wearing dark clothes on a black bike with no reflectors they could end up hitting you before they ever see you especially when you add dark (limo) tinted windows + stereo blasting and subwoofers thumping.

Now add texting on the phone to the equation.

It's all over. You're roadkill.

You need to make yourself more than just a little visible. They need to see you from a fricken mile away. even if you are sprawled out in the street.

TIP: I use the slap light so they can see where the edge of me actually IS. I usually hang it on the left end of my handlebar - on my rearview mirror. Or on my left ankle so there is a light moving up and down along with pedal reflectors - that says 'dude on a bike up ahead'.

ESD wrist straps are usually something like a megohm to ground so that there is enough of the path to discharge any static buildup, but not enough current to kill you should something go wrong. If you work on live equipment and have a short to ground on one arm and touch something with the other, the current path goes straight across your chest. Here, $1.73 for a strap If you want to make one you need 1 megohm resistor to put between your body and the ground.
