I don’t normally advocate throwing sharp objects at people.
It never really ends well. But, it’s a different story when a piece of pointy death is actually nerd craft that is made of safe mostly safe plexiglass. Last week i started on this after seeing a article on Instructables.com about making a Batarang similar to this one from the game Batman: Arkham Asylum.
This particular project of mine took about only ten to twelve hours total and was a complete success. It has the ability to snap into the open position with a flick of the wrist due to the placement of strong earth magnets embeded within the plexiglass.
I have tried to photo document my work on it as much as possible, enjoy…
Now all I need is years of intense martial arts training; a college level education in criminology, chemistry, physics, electronics and engineering, a british butler, a costume and I am all set to prowl the night.
Okay, so i’m writing this post from the bus terminal. I just thought that since I haven’t posted in a while and had some free time I might as well put it to some good use. But back to the topic at hand. My day started with waking up early. (well in my case early even with daylight saving time. I’m Still tried.) Then a half hour of trying to find matching socks. (Seriously, a hard thing to do in a family of my size. I have a amazing theory on what happens to them after you toss them in the drier, I’ll tell you all about it sometime.) Anyway, after Finally getting dropped of at the “Office”. (which was the main event of my day.) I quickly finished my work and proceeded to try to find a ride home. However luck was not with me. Both of the family cars were in use. I would be forced to walk the five miles home or I could wait for the city bus to come along.
Okay, so I found the right bus. It seems although I’ll be making two stops. One at the terminal and one at which I’ll need to walk a block to crossover to the next bus which will take me home. Easy right, I took maps. No sweat, I got this.
Ummm, a little draw back happened. Turns out I grabbed the wrong bus… It’s still cool though, cause the driver said he’d drop me of at the corner and i can get on one which crosses the path of the one I need.
ALRIGHT, I’m on the right bus! I understand why they call it “catching the bus” better now, it drove right past me and I had to chase it a block!
I guesses it’s my fault… I didn’t tell the driver of the crossover bus where I wanted to go. The bus i was just on Was the RIGHT one. But on it’s return trip… It had already past my drop off point.
So here I am, back at the terminal. I’ve definitively feel like I learned a important life lesson today. In a little bit my feet will do their job and I’ll be on my way. Five miles? I rested all day.
Okay, you’re done right, that was it? No hard feelings, it’s just that right before bed isn’t really best time for me. Sure, its great you got that time I messed up and didn’t get my eagle scout award, the time I lost tne girl I loved , and oh, look! You even have the word “Pudding” mixed up with old scifi book titles! Seriously, the things you remember at six in the morning. Whats that, you could use a change in scenery to feel better? hmmmm…… Think realisticlly…. Beautiful landscapes…..
Thats better…. Damn. I wish I had someone to talk to tonight….. Thanks brain, love you. – Murphy
Actually just yesterday. i sent a good frend who had never gotten any thing for Valentine’s Day some chocolates. It was worth it just to get a text from her saying ”Thank you. It was a wonderful suprise. “
Remember, tomorrow isn’t just about the people you’re in love with, but also the people you love.
Last night, I was down in the dumps, and the weird part was, I couldn’t figure out why. I just felt mopey and sad.
To cheer myself up, I did four things…
First, I asked one of my best friends for a hug. Then I read a good book, watched a a movie that had Will Smith in it, and stayed up late sitting in my chair drinking . But even after all my efforts, I was still feeling sad. I just wish I could put my finger on why!
I have felt a Little bit lonely at sometimes but its not really a big deal, I normally attribute that to being stuck inside on rainy days. Haha
