I want an army of Availabots.

They haven't seen the sybian I made with an old vacuum cleaner, a lawn mower engine, and good intentions.

The caption should have read ... "Top five people who are never getting laid unless they DIY or build a woman."

I wish I had pics of the pony keg that my old roommate and I turned into a bong. It worked great.

the coilgun was cool, but would need a bulky power supply. may as well use a nail gun.
2006-07-25 09:13:24 AM  
that availabot and coil gun were cool....i would use the coil gun to shoot the availabot once it become irritating because some of my friends use dial up and are constantly online/offline...

Who knew that a common toilet plunger, when moistened and stuck to the floor, makes a perfect,,, excuse me I must answer the phone.

Stuff like the FishTV is only cool until everyone you know has come over and seen it once. Thens it's just an ungainly fish tank.

I once made a device that could open a CD tray on a PC out of a paperclip.
2006-07-25 09:15:22 AM  
What about a time machine made from a simple flux capacitor and a crappy stainless steel car?

/whoops, confusing fantasy and reality again...

These inventions are trivial when compared to the OCTODOG!

It's not the right gun I think, but it's the right movie "In the line of fire"

What better way to relax after a hard day at work than by sucking in some fresh air from your favorite plant?

File this under: "Strange Japanese Gadgets and Accessories". This USB 2.0 hub by SolidAlliance features an "emergency button" that when pressed, makes "explosion" sounds - resembling a bomb - through its built-in speaker. Available now in Japan, priced at $45USD.

Bonno, I'll give you 5 bucks to try and fly with that thing.

I want that fish tank!
2006-07-25 09:40:15 AM  
Ive got a fix for the guy with the fish tank so he can fill the tank up past the screen without hitting the light,
take an old beta-max VCR and hollow it out leaving the bottom open and mount the light inside, then cut a hole smaller than the VCR in the top of the TV, then hinge the VCR to the top of the TV and you have access for maintenance and feeding.

I invented a wingless airplane once, but it didn't take off.
2006-07-25 09:49:17 AM  
I wish they had more info on the coil gun... That thing looked pretty badass.
2006-07-25 09:50:51 AM  
Er.. nevermind. Didn't see the link that said "source".
2006-07-25 10:03:18 AM  
I had an idea like that once. It was the "Jump to Conclusions Mat". You see, it was this mat that had a bunch of conclusions on it, and you could jump to them...

Nothing is weirder than my home-built rape machine.

The ways in which it rapes you are not only weird but highly creative.

I would go into detail but the rape machine wants to fist me while it does stem cell research.

I invented a permanent tattoo remover, but the patent office said that I couldn't patent an X-acto knife.

Truer words were never spoken.

That xbox is cooler than mine, but mine has a bigger screen.
2006-07-25 10:27:27 AM  
My Verdict:
Not so cool,
Except for the gun.

/no skillz
2006-07-25 10:41:26 AM

2006-07-25 10:41:46 AM

I invented the blacklight bulb, but it wasn't very enlightening

Sweater Vest

Will you go outside if it looks the other way?
2006-07-25 01:36:56 PM  

You couldn't be more right! I bought an Octodog maker for my sister years ago. I'd actually forgotten all about the wonder that is the Octodog! until your post. Thanks!

The fishtank is not so weird. Here is mine that I made back in 1997. I recently had to get rid of it after the novelty wore off for my wife. Now I just have a normal tank.

Your wife sucks. I hate it when women make their bf's get rid of stuff they like. And I hate it even more when you men let them!!

Don't know why I decided to click your profile, but WOW. You are so hot. Gorgeous. Wicked sexy.

I am at a loss for words.

Never have I been so proud to be Canadian.
