I was just on facebook, and for whatever reason typed ROFL, and thought I should actually give it a go.
I rolled on the floor and laughed.
Seriously people...
Give it a go the next time you feel the need to type ROFL! :)
My face hurts.
My face hurts so much.

It makes funny things funnier [edit from the future - THAN] you could possibly imagine previously doesn't it :)

I found it also hurt my hip a little :)

The algae is growing again.

I'll have another crack at the paper making thing soon.

I've been experimenting a bit with trying to figure out how to grade/harvest for sale/isolate the non-gold goldfish for sale as feeder fish for people with carnivorous creature filled aquariums.

To this end I made a simple fish trap. Cut the top off a plastic coke bottle neck, and inverted it so it fits into it's body upside down. Bait it, and fish find their way in because they are guided by the funnel, but then cant find their way out because they patrol the corners and dont think to look for the exit hanging in space in the middle of the trap.

Simple enough, and tried and tested for thousands of years... grass or bamboo rather than coke bottle as far as ancient history goes.

It works pretty well, but whatever you do, dont leave it in there unchecked for a day or two even without bait.

I left it in so they would get used to it for a few days.

Luckily it was only two that were trapped, but I'm guessing due to the lack of water flow/oxygen they died in the trap.

Opps.

I have to consolidate my karmic debt so I dont end up paying too much interest. I hate accidental death. I prefer to kill stuff and eat it.Slightly smelly 1 inch long goldfish aren't helping me at all.

At least I get to continue to live and learn.

Sorry universe.

:(

Poor little fishies. That's why bamboo or similar is better. Maybe punch a bunch of holes in the plastic bottle trap for circulation? I didn't realize your were experimenting on live animals. Are there protestors outside your home?

Not so far [looks out of window emoji]

I'll make the next trap out of gutter guard, (Plastic mesh stuff) or shade cloth.

I had no idea it would trap fish without bait.

I hate it when I stop thinking.

Condolences on the fish. :support: I would image it shouldn't take much to correct your karma for this little accident. 8)
Many fish are curious, mine love it when I add a decoration to our planted community tank.

does anyone know anything about using fish as dog food?

I was thinking about adopting a dog from the pound and training it on my epic solar adventure in the hope that I can get it some exposure and get someone to adopt it on a permanent basis. I live in a rental, and cant have pets, but I figure if I was a dog up for the needle I would rather go on an epic solar adventure.

My aim would be to introduce it to my youtube channel, and hope someone fell in love with it.

The only downside is I would need to feed it from a solar boat traveling 4000km with severe weight limits. Obviously I would be passing a lot of towns and could buy dog food, but It would be nice if I could feed it on carp.

So does anyone have any experience/knowledge about such stuff? Do I need to cook it? Mince it? Is it dangerous? etc...

That was quite a read. Took me almost a month to get through it all. I have the attention span of a gnat these days though, so I guess that’s okay. I got side tracked by TCLynx’s threads for a bit too. All 4 of them, lol. Just wanted to say thank you for the entertainment and zaniness (is that a word, and if so, have I spelled it correctly?). Anyway, I hope you are well, and can’t wait to read about your voyage.

Thanks DomArnett, it always freaks me out when people say have waded through all of this thread :)

A month!

Humans are a funny bunch :)

I can safely say that anything that you read on TCLynx's posts should taken as genuine information. Anything you read on my threads should be taken with a healthy dose of scepticism :)

Except my stuff on goat dung scoria, and maybe my last version of my sequencer.

I feel I outrank TCLynx on goat dung scoria information :)

It's nice to hear someone is reading it all. Thanks for the feedback :)

Bully is always tops for entertainment, diversity and exploring the obscure. TC Lynx is top shelf for catfish and farming info. They are likely my top two mentors on this forum! Thanks to you both, you've brought many of us a long way from where we started!!

Don’t forget laser sighted blowguns and lens hacks. You are definitely the go to guy on the forums for those.

I feel I lost a reader in GeekToNurse's partner when I wrote about using a party popper (explosive string denominated device that dumps streamers into the air with explosives) to propel a laser sighted dart (made of a pin, some cotton thread, and some wool) out of a bic biro pen casing - cannon style. The way I wrote it sounded like it was disappearing into the neighbourhood in some kind of uncontrolled and dangerous manner, but the reality is that it was more like a badminton ... thing... it shot out like crazy for a few feet then went nowhere...

but I like a story more than I like reality :)

The reason for the confusion, was that I wrote something like, "the dart disappeared into suburbia never to be found again). The reality was it glanced of the chair I was aiming at, and got lost in my lawn.

But there's no story in that.

Anyone who has read all my thread also knows I'm nowhere near fit enough to wrestle anything as a strong as a postman to the ground. But I think facts are generally way too over rated.

They kind of get in the way things too much.

For example, the lens hack did in fact produce that result of the pencil close up, but when I proudly showed it to a photographer friend, it totaly fell to bits. It perfectly disassembled itself to the point that I could take it apart no further without employing a hammer :)

I was still proud of it, but it was difficult to get anyone else enthused :)

I suspect that this is why I change subjects a lot :)

That, and the fact that I wont be happy until I know everything there is to know.

Speaking of which...

I would be happy with just seeing a list of all the things there are to know. I get the feeling most of it would be over my head, but I’d gladly chip away at it learning a little each day.
As far as the rest of it, just do what you do. I think most of the people reading your thread are entertained at the least. I feel like there was good info along the way as well.
