From the Submitter: I made this contraption to keep my laptop from overheating. It cooled from 69ºC to 39ºC within ten minutes. And yes, those are 2.1 kV transformers. And yes, that's a roll of duct tape.

Let me label that for you:

1: Laptop that he just can't let go of. 2: Books that he tried to read and failed. The Silmarillion (left) and Ulysses (right). 2 - again? come on dude, you only had to count to 5: Anyway, mentioned above. 3. CPU fan stolen from parent's desktop. 4: The crowning achievement of the piece, almighty duct tape.

Dummyload on a budget. I needed to dissapate over 100 watts of radio frequency energy into a non inductive dummyload that would be submerged into mineral oil. 94, one watt 4700 ohm resistors came out to be 50.2 ohms. Not bad! Made in USA!

From the submitter:

So you have a ceiling fan in a room with a cathedral ceiling that needs a light bulb and no ladder available. Using a broom stick, an empty pill bottle, a hair scrunchy, a large chef's knife, and some duct tape you can build Bulb Changing Tool 5000. Simply cut a series 1-1/2" long slits lengthwise starting at the open end of the pill bottle to make a collapseable bulb holder. Wrap the hair scrunchy around the pill bottle to enable a nice grippy action. Punch a hole in the bottom of the pill bottle.

Not surprisingly, they have the highest burn rate in the very small industry of sled-delivered goods. ~NSHA

The last time I checked satellites were in the sky; I'm really hoping this whole thing just gets super-glued to the back of his Civic.
