The Slime Thick slime You can see this step in the following video or keep reading Take half a spoon of your borax solution and add it to your mucilage solution. Stir. You will notice an immediate change in your mucilage solution: it becomes slimy. Depending of the texture you want (the one I did is thicker), add more or less borax. Once you are done, take your slime out of the flask and mold it with your hands. It tends to dry, so use a Ziploc bag to store it. Translucent, more elastic, and "slimier" slime Making this kind of slime is basically the same as doing a thick slime. The other difference is that you have to make it in batches. Here is the video: Now that you are done, read on to see the explanation of what happened while you play with your slime and learn, among other things, what "rheopectic" means.

2n3055 flyback transformer driver for beginners Intro: This instructable will show you how to make a cheap and simple driver circuit in order to get high voltage arcs out of a component called a flyback transformer. A flyback transformer, sometimes called a line output transformer are used in older CRT TV's and computer monitors to produce the high voltage needed to power the CRT and electron gun. They also have other auxiliary windings built into them that the TV manufacturers use to power other parts of the TV, so they are usually customised by the manufacturers. For the high voltage experimenter they are used to make high voltage arcs, which is what this instructable will show you how to do with just a few simple electronic components. You can get flyback transformers out of older CRT monitors and TV's. Disclaimer I am in no way responsible if you mess up with this circuit. What you will need: 1x Flyback transformer 1x 2n3055 transistor + heatsink 1x 220 ohm 5 watt resistor A fast diode.

Homemade pancakes Pour the batter into something you can easily pour out of. Or you could use a handled measuring cup and just scoop it onto the pan. I use those cups you see me pouring it into in the pics. Heat the pan to hot (you want it hot before you start cooking at all). Pour the batter onto the pan into 3-4" circles. The last pic shows the bubbles right before it's ready to flip. 5 minute DNA Extraction in a Shot Glass Despite its exotic-sounding name, DNA is ubiquitous - it can be found in every cell of every living thing and almost everywhere on the planet. Nonetheless, we rarely come face-to-face with the molecule itself - and it's not because DNA is difficult to find or isolate! In this instructable, we'll show you how to isolate your own DNA with little more than some dish soap, table salt, high-proof alcohol, a shot glass, and a bit of your own saliva. It only takes a couple of minutes, and after you've isolated your own DNA, you can either drink it back down in a tasty "DNA shot" (great party trick) or better yet, purify it further for more analysis*. Materials & Set Up This instructable was produced by DIYbio - an organization for amateur biotechnologists. EDIT: Some DIYbioers are developing a simple gel box and a gel box on steroids.

Easy Lemon Bars These are perfect, neither too lemony nor too sweet, light, and slightly sticky lemon bars. I was amazed at how well this recipe turned out, considering I'd never made lemon bars before! I'm giving you my own tailored version, since even though they were great, I think there is always room for improvement (unless it comes to devilish angel food cake which is pretty much perfect in all ways). It's a pretty straight-forward recipe, so I hope you enjoy! Shopping list: 4 large lemons 4 eggs Milk Butter All-purpose flour Confectioner's sugar Granulated sugar Cornstarch Salt Make the crust: Line a 13"x9" baking dish or jelly roll pan with a double layer of parchment, or one of foil and one of parchment (the extra strength will help you lift the bars out of the pan for cutting). In a food processor, pulse together: Optional:Add: 1-2 tablespoons cold vodka this will help hold the dough together while you pat it into the pan, but will bake off in the oven, leaving a light, flaky crust.
