In bacon we trust I’m not totally sure how it started but someone suggested I run for President. I said no thanks that I had too many skeletons and it wasn’t a very fun job anyway. Then someone else piped up that I should just run for Congress then, as they are allowed to have skeletons. We had some lovely slogans all centered around my joke that I stay larger so people can see me better. We had things like “there’s more of me to love thanks to bacon” and “vote for Peabody I have more cushin’ for pushin’”. To ensure I keep up with my figure to run for Congress I best figure out how to eat more bacon in my everyday life. These are a diet killer in every way possible.

Store | charmed design How to Make a Hula Hoop How to Make a Collapsible Hoop: Since I've been getting quite a few requests for collapsible hoop-making instructions lately, here are the basics. In addition to what you need to make a regular hoop, to make a collapsible, you need: Four connectors per hoop instead of oneBulk bungee corduncoated coat hanger wirea power sander (or a lot of patience)several pairs of pliers and several hands Fair warning on two points: First, sanding down the connectors produces plastic dust that you do not want in your eyes or lungs. Wear goggles, do it outside, wear a mask. Here's how it works: Measure off a length of tubing to your desired hoop size, and cut. Heat one end of each of the four tubes, and slide the non-sanded ends of the connectors into each, up to the halfway point, leaving the sanded ends sticking out. You should be able to pull the hoop apart with some effort, but when spinning at top speed it should stay together.

Geek romance: How to make a Storm Glass pendant : SciencePunk - StumbleUpon Toward the end of last year, being in possession of two novelties – a girlfriend and a steady job – I decided to spend my free evenings crafting a very special piece of jewellery. I was inspired by a visit to Barometer World in the late summer, where I discovered the curious material known as storm glass (tragic backstory recounted here). In short, a storm glass is a weather divination tool so old that nobody really knows where they came from. Nobody knows what exactly makes storm glasses act this way. It was around then that an idea hatched in my head: if it was really heat that caused a storm glass to sigh and sway from one condition to another, then why couldn’t it be turned into a pendant? The recipe for storm glass can be found almost anywhere, although a slightly different version exists for warmer climes, hinting at where I would need to go. Camphor is quite soluble in alcohol, but not at all in water. Put the mixture in a small vial – I bought mine here.
