  1. Crayon rockets!
  2. The original rolling ball clock — now available again!
  3. Also, ever seen the Arrow coin clock?
  4. Attention BF programmers that want better 3D graphics support: The bfopengl project needs more developers.

  18. Remaking classic perpetual motion machines, at the Museum of Unworkable Devices.
  19. Interesting perspective: Is luck a skill?

  1. My 8th grade teacher made a Crayola rocket. This was about ten years ago, but he probably built it years earlier. He was definitely a model rocket hobbyist. Although I believe he used a giant plastic crayon instead of building his own.

    In fact, our entire class built model rockets out of paper for the body, balsa wood fins, and a straw for the guide rod. He also built a wind tunnel so we could test the balance of our rockets. Our little rockets used A-engine. The Crayola used a G-engine.

  2. Totally awesome, you guys are brownncoats!
    It has made my day to follow the link to the blog with the recipe for Ice Planets. Thank You.
