Re: Super strong OOGOO !!??

Unsure of what you are describung... Are you talking about non-newtonian fluids?
In that case:
50/50 by weight water/cornstarch
Simple, cheap, non-toxic.
As the starch can harbor and care for all sorts of fungi and bacteria, it is better to discard it after a play-session

Re: "Heat pump" hot water systems in Australia - joke or any good?

I work in medical technology and trust me: The regulations are a different paper in every country even if the idea and sometimes even the contents are the same: As long as you arent certified for all 200 gazillion countries, wou wont sell there.

Re: "Heat pump" hot water systems in Australia - joke or any good?

Indeed, if you want to cool the house, better also use the "waste" cold from the themo-sink. And one can always have a simple flip-type oneway-valve and a reversible fan to choose if you want to push the cold air out or into the house.. Should be a non-brainer really... Also, such a Air-Heatpump is ...

Bah! Stay strong and venture forth in true spirit of DIY: It is often not the endgoal which is the most important. The way to knowledge and interesting sideprojects are sometimes equally important.

Re: Traditional walking stick from cabbage

Wax would work as well i think. The process is basically to suck out the air from the wood and let it raise thru the liquid around the wood. This basically leaves the wood with an "internal vacuum" if you want to call it that. Now, if you release the vacuum in the pipe, the vacuum in the wood also w...

Re: Vaccine conundrum !!??

But then she said she can not state wheter or not the RAT's would react to a booster shot, only how the things work. At least in switzerland, the booster shot is the same mRNA as the vaccines, sometimes just in a lower dosage. Again: I am in no way a specialist to talk about, but from what i unders...

So, purely hypothetic: - Let the cabbage grow straight until short before the harvest (a few weeks maybe?). - Tilt the sod 90° so the cabbage is sitting alongside the floor - the plant will ty to right itself a...
