(Fark)   The Mrs. ordered me a music box from China. They sent a box of 200 assorted springs instead. Issued a refund and told me to keep the springs. What should I do with them? DIT   (fark.com) divider line

Don't plant them!  They could be invasive Chinese springs!

Whatever you do, do NOT wish you never see another spring as long as you live!

Make these for all of the neighbor kid's Barbie dolls...

I need one. Just one.
It's a spring that sits on the frame of my e-bike, and attaches to the front wheel/fender mount to keep the wheel straight when parked. The one on there now I poached from a broken camp chair. It's too stiff.
Either one of those, right in the middle of the pic would be great. Thanks.

You could try and make a musical spring-box.

Simpsons did it, already covered.

Seriously, check and double check WHERE the items are coming from when you order online. Items coming from China seem to be the source of where, um, ah, what you get is questionable to what you expect.

You could do experiments with Hooke's Law to determine your spring constants, which for some reason ends up with a prof riding a pendulum.

Ok. DM me which spring you're looking for and where you'd like me to send it to.
