Okay, let's try to assemble a normal tent. The long pole goes into the socket with the other short pole, the other other short pole slides into the flux capacitor, then cast expecto patronum on the tent stakes, then divide by zero, and voila! You're done.

Now here's a tent that makes camping a little bit easier. The tent has a geodesic dome frame that inflates when you pump it full of air. Just inflate, and you're done!

Last Thanksgiving we showed you how to cook a turkey using thermite. Now that summer is here (and somehow already coming to an end), it's time for something more BBQ-friendly.
