In my old neighborhood someone put one of these in the MIDDLE of the main street right where people drive into the neighborhood. A lot of people complained on facebook and would move it to the side of the street but he just yelled at people in the community facebook group and kept moving it back. I remember one of my favorite quotes of his was something about how people who don't live on that side don't see "the assholes that FFFFFLLLLLLYYYYYYYYYYYYY" down the road, he said it just like that haha. We had speedbumps, and it really wasn't that bad. One day it was just gone in the middle of the night and this guy practically cried in that facebook group for weeks straight for someone to return it. After a couple of days though my sister showed me a snapchat from her friend in the neighborhood of hims stealing it haha, glad he did.

u/Zaptagious · 83 pointsr/funny

I got 4 of these from being a patron to a podcast called Hysteria 51, but they don't seem to be so hard to find

u/RelaxRelapse · 28 pointsr/houston

True, Amazon has 1000 of them for $6. That specific company sells a lot of other labels for medical use too if you want some more variety in life.

u/edmaddict4 · 19 pointsr/buildapc

I guess this probably works but why not just wear a grounding strap?

u/alexs001 · 14 pointsr/childfree

I want to smash this turtle when I see it.

u/wallysmith127 · 12 pointsr/boardgames

Great list! Adding QOL/bling improvements to games is definitely one of my favorite aspects of the hobby.

Some of my personal favorite add-ons:

  • Vinyl tape: Reusable, cheap, adds zero bulk to stacks of cards. (Edit: Damn, when I bought the tape it was $3.94. Now it's $10.13. But there are 1.5" rolls from the same manufacturer for $3.29)

  • Uberstax: Highly customizable modular plastic pieces especially useful for large hands of cards (Gloomhaven) and card markets (Argent: The Consortium). Not cheap though.

  • Stickers: Building on a post here a long time ago where winners would sign the box lids, we started buying stickers to go alongside the signatures.

Yes, for pharmacy use

PHARMEX 1-78G Permanent Paper Label,"FOR RECTAL USE", 1 9/16" x 3/8", Blue (500 per Roll, 2 Rolls per Box)

u/3MWorkerBee · 8 pointsr/preppers

I have quite a bit of experience with retroreflective material. You don't need to worry about IR wavelengths as all visible light retroreflectors (generally beads or corner cubes) will work (almost) just as well for near infrared wavelengths.You can buy some paints that have some retroreflective beads in it, but they're not remotely strong enough to really do what you want. Most of the beads are totally coated with paint, so you end up with really poor coverage.You could buy some retroreflective beads and glue them onto your arrows (lying right at the surface of the glue), but unless you did a lot of experimentation, I'm guessing the durability would be really disappointing.The absolute best retroreflectors are corner cubes, but they need an air gap meaning that small regions have to be sealed all the way around the edges to prevent water ingress. It's not impossible, but again, you'll be fiddling with details that you shouldn't have to.Here's an example of this product. the grey pattern that seals the shiny regions to keep water out. Everywhere you cut the seal, water will defeat the reflectivity.What you really want is a beaded retroreflector, preferably with a silver backing to increase the reflection. Look for a uniform look (with no seal pattern). You can get different colors, but white will always reflect most strongly (and avoid blue and green for sure if you want to use IR)

Even the smallest sliver of this tape will reflect back to the light's source, although I don't know if this particular tape is thin enough and the adhesive strong enough to really pull down on a tightly curved shaft. Honestly, I'd stick it down with some epoxy or superglue if it didn't obviously conform.

I've had some of this tape (or a similar beaded version) on my bicycling shoes for years. Bits have rubbed off and it looks ragged since I heavily use the toes and heals to push and pull on things, but I've been really impressed that where I didn't actually rub it, it has stayed on.

FULL DISCLOSURE -- I work for 3M. I don't get paid to post on social media, but I am required to disclose my employment when I discuss 3M products so here's my 3M throwaway. There are other 3M and non 3M retroreflective options out there you should consider. I honestly just picked the first two products on Amazon that showed up on my Google search (and to be fair, my Google search probably knows I sometimes look for 3M products).

[EDIT] One more note -- using IR is really weird in this application. Retroreflective material will shoot light back at the source, so it'll flash brightly whether you're using IR or visible light. Honestly, unless you're being chased by zombies, I'd just use a bright flashlight to look for things tagged with retroreflective material. If you don't have a ridiculously powerful flashlight powered by lithium ion cells, go over to /r/flashlight and they'll sort you out.

u/Chiamon · 8 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

Yes. There are devices made specifically for this used in electronics manufacturing all the time. Generally it'll be a wrist strap (or foot strap) that is conductive and plugs into a ground to discharge static continuously, but if you just want to avoid getting shocked you simply need to move the point of discharge away from your body. Holding onto a conductive (non-grounded) object like a steel rod and touching that rod to a conductive, grounded surface will discharge the static but you shouldn't feel anything since the discharge is between the two conductive surfaces and not your skin and something else.

u/NullOverflow · 8 pointsr/ProtectAndServe

I think you forgot the "For Rectal Use Only" label somewhere....

u/jjmeadowlark · 7 pointsr/GNV

I always assume, and so I generally use a "Black Hole" Faraday bag when I travel until I'm in a spot I choose to place a call etc.

Not getting paid for this or profiting in any way, just a sweet Faraday bag I bought. I am not a criminal, BTW, just a 4th amendment supporter.

Alachua county and GPD also got a ton of AR style rifles: which may be needed, since our town is a nest of crime an chaos- /sarcasm. All FOIA, so yay "Sunshine" laws in FLA.

I also had a great link for the serious hardware like "mine-resistant" vehicles that the GPD and ACSO recieved under 1033, but I'll have to look for it. Wouldn't surprise me that there's a Stingray somewhere in town.

u/prc90 · 6 pointsr/motorcycles

I'm torn between the duality of vanity and functionality. Most decent jackets have some reflective material on them unless they're total black out pieces of gear. I decided since I can't stand dayglo green or funky bright colors that I would mix a good portion of white in with my gear. I don't go pure white but if i have the option to buy a piece of gear that is black/white I go for it. For the pieces I couldn't get with white (like my current riding back pack) I bought 3M Scotchlite Tape and taped the hell out of it. I've also been hunting for a "Helmet Halo" which was a highly reflective fabric band you put around the bottom of your helmet (i don't like using adhesives on my helmets) but I believe it fell out of production.

u/Skov · 6 pointsr/guns

I would like to introduce you to the wonders of helicopter tape. It prevents dings in surfaces you coat it with.

u/philipito · 6 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Here OP. Buy one and report back with your findings.

u/lavendarlandslide · 6 pointsr/LSD

Oh maaan, well Shambs was actually my first ever... everything. First rave, first festival, first trip, first time experiencing EDM. My friends took me under their wing (they have a tradition of spoiling a newbie every year) so I mostly followed them around. Dirtmonkey was memorable AF, I danced around and put for rectal use only stickers on everybody's totem that was there. Pigeon Hole's sunday night set was awesome (despite them being a fill-in). Boogie T was unreal, we just sat at the front of the Pagoda and let PK fuck us up haha. Neon Steve was super rad cause I got to go on stage, BTSM was one of the few artists I was familiar with PRIOR to shams, and honestly I discovered Rezz and fell in love with her! I'm lowkey bummed I missed Dimond Saints and Whipped Cream tho. Overall, 12/10 experience. Changed my life. I will absolutely be there next time with much much much more appreciation for the artists now that I'm more familiar with them and loving the music.

u/vhalros · 5 pointsr/bicycling

If you want to do something crafty with your daughter, you could try to cut some of this 3m reflective tape into interesting shapes: My experience with that tape is that it is very reflective, but you'll want to replace it after a couple years.

If you want something reflective on the spokes, these work pretty well:

Also, Vespertine makes some reflective flower pins and such. My wife has one, so I can tell you they are definately very reflective, but they are kind of silly expensive: I'm not sure exactly where I can just get a sheet of whatever they are made of to make my own stuff.

u/jsdavis · 5 pointsr/bicycling

Reflective tape is easily available if you can use that:

u/jtinz · 5 pointsr/bicycling

It fucks up the aesthetics, adds weight and anything screwed on can rattle or come off. Especially when you ride a road bike with high tyre pressure on cobblestones.

That's why I replaced my reflectors with reflective tape. Especially the 3M foil is more visible than the typical plastic reflectors.

Practically no weight, won't come off and doesn't look as messy. There's even tape that's black in diffuse light. However, the reflection angle of that is very narrow. So it's a questionable compromise.

u/Gixug · 5 pointsr/bicycling

We're bike brothers! I have the exact same bike. :)

Just a note, the paint will scuff around the areas where the black cable routing rubs against the white paint. I'd get a roll of helicopter tape and put some strips right under those spots.

I also recommend ditching the white tires and the white bar tape. That was one of the first things I did because after about two rides, they're both completely grey.

Congrats on the bike! You obviously have excellent taste. ;)

u/DOZENS_OF_BUTTS · 5 pointsr/Gangstalking

I'm not a targeted individual, and frankly I don't think you are either, but I'll proceed in giving you the benefit of the doubt anyway.

First, you need undeniable physical evidence. Get a Geiger counter (you can find a relatively cheap and well-reviewed one on Amazon here) and read up on the measurements that a Geiger counter will give you with this chart. If the radiation is causing you significant physical harm like you've described then it is likely ionizing radiation, which a Geiger counter can accurately measure.

Your references towards being affected by electrical appliances sound more like elecromagnetic radiation though, which is quite different from ionizing radiation. A device like this can be used to measure ambient EMF radiation. Again, make video documentation to prove that you're being exposed to extremely high levels of it.

If you're concerned about the possibility of your video evidence being tampered with, as many TIs seem to be, you can upload that video evidence to a storage medium such as FreeNet (/r/freenet), which will split the video file into many, many pieces and distribute them to thousands of volunteers worldwide so that the original file can be retrieved later. The data in the pieces that are distributed to the volunteers is encrypted so they won't know what they're holding on to for you, so even if they were complicit in the alleged gang stalking they wouldn't know that you (as the uploader) were someone they needed to fuck with. (This is, of course, a very brief explanation of the inner workings of FreeNet which leaves a lot out, but you get the gist of it.)

Now for the suggestion you're not going to like. See a mental health specialist. If you're correct, and you have the evidence to back it up, you can get yourself a clean bill of mental health that you can present at future court proceedings to help validate the fact that there is a grand conspiracy against you. And if you're not correct, and you are mentally ill, you can get help.

You should travel a considerable distance from where you live to contact the mental health professional, because the conspiracy against you is certainly localized to some degree. However unlikely, it is possible to buy out local mental health professionals, but it is simply not feasible to buy out every mental health professional in the entire country on the off chance that they might have one particular person come in that they need to conspire against. You aren't a rambling nut job, so I am confident that you will agree that it's astronomically unlikely that a conspiracy against you would span more than a small network of a few towns. With this in mind, seeing a somewhat distant mental health professional seems like a logical option in a plan to fight this attack on you.

If you need any more guidance beyond what I've already typed up, just ask and I'll help you as much as I can.

u/SarahC · 5 pointsr/electronics

Complete bill of materials (£250 though some you may have already, like camera and 20v power supply):


Flyback transformer, 35kV, (£8)

ZVS Oscilator to drive flyback (£8) (both come as a pack here)


X-Ray phosphor screen (£20)

(Terbium-doped gadolinium oxysulfide (Gd2O2S:Tb) scintillator pixels which are embedded into a polyethylene substrate. Normal price £400)


X-Ray source - 2X2A USA MULTI OFFER 5 PIECES (£15)


Geiger counter (£80)


A digital camera with a long exposure ability. (£100)


A tripod (or table) for the camera. (£30)


And a power supply - DON'T GO OVER 20 volts - the flyback WILL pop.

It will draw around .6 amps if working correctly.


You NEED AT LEAST 500 µSv (Microsieverts) per hour - this will produce a glow on the screen BARELY visible in complete darkness.



The X-Rays mostly come out from INSIDE the "dome" on the top of the vacuum tube, in the shape very similar to a half opened umbrella. Not much comes out the top - they're VERY soft X-Rays at 25kV, so VERY HARMFUL TO ORGANIC stuff because your body WILL absorb MOST of the X-Rays.



It will kill you from the 30,000 volt power source.

It will give you cancer from the X-Rays (ionising radiation tears DNA apart).

It can give you ionising radiation burns in the short term (ionising radiation tears cells apart).

It can damage DNA in your family jewels, producing deformed babies/sterility.


If you don't have a Geiger counter and lead shielding, as well as high voltage experience, you're best bet is learn about radiation and HV and do little experiments weeks before you try something like this. If you don't know what the "one hand rule" is, or what ionising radiation does, it's best to stay well clear!



Hard X-Rays mostly pass through your body, but you'll need a voltage of 75kV for that.

I have had MOST success with the following (NOT SHOWN: the results.)


Canon 7D Mk 2, ISO 5000, F1.8, 20 second exposure using the 50mm £50 prime lens AT FULLY OPEN APERTURE.

Pre focus it on the screen using some newspaper or something laying ON the phosphor sheet to focus on.

Turn on "Manual focusing", set up the camera to those settings, turn off all the lights HIDE all your LED's in the room, they WILL light up the screen. (I left an orange power LED on and my screen looks pink!)


Turn on the X-Ray machine! Press the shutter, exit the room. Run back in and turn off X-Rays.


BOOM! Picture.


X-Rays make CUMULATIVE DNA damage - all the doses are added together even days apart, so be careful!


Here's two exposures UNEDITED - in Photoshop the noise can be reduced, and the green phosphor turned to blue, like the standard X-Ray sheets.


The X-Ray sheets online are black and clear - and the plastic sheet they're on is tinted blue because back then they thought the blue increased contrast to the eye - it doesn't.


If you turn the image black and white, fiddle with the contrast, and then colorise the image to Cyan..... you'll get the same X-Ray result!


The sheets from X-Ray cassettes are AWESOME. Plastic phosphor layer, and a BLACK back layer - the light you see isn't leaking from the blue light of the tube, it's only from the phosphor lighting from X-Rays.


(I used a paper card version for those first images, so they didn't benefit from this contrast increase)


Good luck!

If you need another purchase to get free shipping, try the Rectal use only sticker.

u/THE_CENTURION · 5 pointsr/iiiiiiitttttttttttt

For some labeling fun that's more legal, may I suggest "For rectal use only" stickers?

They're smaller, so they're fun to put on screwdrivers, remotes, etc

u/random_pattern · 5 pointsr/Nootropics

Interesting. I like this line of thinking.

I now keep my iPhone in one of these "black bags" whenever in large crowds (NYC commute, traveling, etc.) to minimize data and CC account theft.

Emesis Bags, 24 for $10. Saved my interior twice. I hand them out to any pax that looks shakey.


u/UCgirl · 5 pointsr/JUSTNOMIL

So I suffer from nausea a lot. Buy a pack of emesis bags like this...

That’s not the only brand. Just check for “emesis bag.” You tie up the top by putting the top of the bag into one of the ring slashes. These can be folded into a small frisbee shape. One can fit in must purses. Carrying one around might help you feel more comfortable in general when going out because you have what you need if you get nauseous (like in a store or something).

I’m not sure if pharmacies carry them or not.

u/PotatosAreDelicious · 4 pointsr/motorcycles

It's very simple. Get something like this and then this for the smaller stripe.
You could do it without a clear coat but the clear coat will make it more resistant to pealing/chipping/more permanent. If you do decide to do a clear coat it's not coming off unless you sand the clear coat and your paint off.
Most helmets/bikes come like this from the factory with their vinyl stickers etc placed on and then just clear coated over.

u/thrway1312 · 4 pointsr/Games

IIRC any highly reflective material will suffice, e.g. something like this

u/ToadScoper · 4 pointsr/Aquariums

Here’s a solutions- go to a local hardware store or tractor supply or landscape store and try to find an all purpose tub, storage tote, or practically any large container, somewhere around 30-50 gallons. Most of these tubs are fish safe, and are very cheap. For filtration use a large sponge filter and pump which are a very cheap and a effective alternative to normal filters. I wouldn’t worry about heat at the moment as this is meant to be temporary, and goldfish can handle it briefly. I wouldn’t but any decorations or substrate in the tub, just leave it bare. This setup is actually widely used in the goldfish hobby, so it’s a great choice.
Here’s the supplies list on amazon for your convenience, but keep in mind you could also go and look for these products cheaper elsewhere and don’t have to be the exact ones

Sponge filter-
Bacto-Surge High Density Foam Filter

VicTsing 80 GPH (300L/H, 4W) Submersible Water Pump For Pond, Aquarium, Fish Tank Fountain Water Pump Hydroponics with 5.9ft (1.8M) Power Cord

Air tube-
Penn Plax Airline Tubing for Aquariums –Clear and Flexible Resists Kinking, 25 Feet Standard

The blumats have a 30gal resevoir with a pH controller. This has basically cut my weekly work in half. I just top off the res every couple weeks.

That's a 3x3 tray, so that leaves 6 inches on all sides for some pavers to hold up those shelves. I use a transfer pump and wand to feed from 5gal buckets and then pump the runoff out of the tray back into a bucket for reuse outside for my strawberries.

Edit: Here's what it looks like from above

Do you have a light-colored jacket you always wear? Rather than a safety vest, just grab some super reflective tape and put it on your jacket, bike, helmet, panniers, etc. Definitely worth investing in a bright, rechargeable light set as well.

u/BeerDrinkingRobot · 3 pointsr/bicycling

Amazon: 3m 36" x 2" Red $5.46

Ebay: 120" x 2" alternating red/white DOT certified tape: $12

I have some of the cheep 36" 3m tape (in white) and shining a light on it in a dark garage it definitely helps, has held up great though mud/rain.

The DOT certified tape is probably better (same stuff you see on semi-trailers). Looks like it has bigger hex reflector pattern.

u/dknight211 · 3 pointsr/bicycling

You can also buy 3M reflective tape and cut to whatever length and shape you want to stick on your wheels and frame. The 3M stuff is very high quality and stays on. It also removes cleanly.

u/yateswebsite · 3 pointsr/Ducati

Congrats! One thing I use on mine for better visibility is night tape. Something like this:

Is black during the day but VERY reflective at night. Made a huge difference on the back of my ST4s.

u/tintern74 · 3 pointsr/motorcycles

Re: #1 - I bought some of this stuff and put a couple pieces on my (black) helmet and a large piece (4"x6"?) on the back center of my (black) jacket. I can't say for certain how much they work since I am still unable to have out of body experiences while riding, but they certainly give me more piece of mind.

You want a noise monitor. I’ve seen pictures of this being used in a library to help with noise levels. I’d search on Amazon for “noise monitor” and go from there if that one is too expensive for you.

u/privateprblms · 3 pointsr/childfree

All the local neighborhoods have at least one person with one of those stupid yellow plastic kids holding a flag in their yard.

If they were less than $36 I would use them for target practice.

u/IAMColonelFlaggAMA · 3 pointsr/AskLEO

If people are speeding, you and your neighbors should call your local police station and ask about traffic enforcement on your road. If they get enough calls, they'll probably send a car down to run traffic and slow people down.

If the speed limit is too high, go to your next town council meeting and try to get them to lower it or install more traffic control devices.

If you don't want to do that, I wouldn't put up anything other than one of these.

u/cycobiz · 3 pointsr/Trucks

> Splice them into your trailer wiring

That's what I did. I went up about 4" from the 7-pin plug, cut the necessary wires, used uninsulated butt connectors with a closed-barrel crimper and adhesive-lined heat shrink to splice in a 6-pin Deutsch DT connector pigtail, then built my own wiring harness that plugs into the Deutsch connector and ran it up to the headache rack.

Went with the 6-pin Deutsch connector since I only needed 5 of the 7 wires (LT, RT, Tail, Backup, and Ground) and 5-pin Deutsch connectors aren't available. Deutsch DT connectors are frequently used in the automotive aftermarket (probably more so than Delphi Weatherpack connectors). I know Rigid Industries uses them for their LED lights, and Smith Race Wire uses them for parts of their custom wiring harnesses.

Also, since you can only close-barrel crimp one end of the uninsulated butt connectors, I chose to close-barrel crimp the side that had only one wire (since closed-barrel crimping is more secure, and the one wire was looser in the connector) and used Channel Lock 909 Pliers to crimp the end with two wires.

Once you made your harness, make sure you slip it into some split wiring loom. Using a loom insertion tool makes quick work of that. Wrap the wiring loom with non-adhesive dry vinyl tape for a factory-finished look and to avoid a gooey, sticky mess in case you need to unwrap the wiring harness in the future.

Finally, a good wire stripper will save your hands a lot of fatigue compared to using a standard wire stripper that you have to always pull the wire through.

u/webdoodle · 3 pointsr/preppers

I've got a couple of these and like them. They are above your price range, but were the lowest cost ones I felt comfortable purchasing. I've owned mine for nearly 2 years and haven't had a problem with them. I've even tested them extensively shooting them with dental x-ray systems to ensure they were accurately reporting.

Well, I don't know all of the variants used.
I do know some old ones, some standard issue ones, and some advanced ones.

Check your jacket and try to make your room use less consistent.

Audio bugs could be used on your phone by taking control of your microphone. Yes, hidden services could use your location, they track the 'cells' your phone connects to every time you change areas or use it. A competent, well-equipped group could track your phone if it was off or in airplane mode. Take the battery out, or remove the GPS temporarily. Some people go as far as to disconnect their cameras and microphones when not using.
Though, these are tech savvy people. The easiest method is the occasional use and burner.

Shop around though, this one has mixed reviews. You also could check out a safe/discrete networking guide.

Someone could install a small brick thing under your car, like what the FBI used to use.
A mechanic or trained eye would most likely notice. They were pathetically clunky in the day, but must be better, now that 'the internet of things' is beginning.

The best source of information, by far in this decade, is obviously a cell.
Most people are dependent on their phones.

The simple solution is to leave the item at home, if you're concerned, or, once again, get a throw away [burner].

u/way2funni · 2 pointsr/cycling

Couple things to add for the shopping list: especially for the 3am part:

Safety Vest

Slap light for left ankle to identify your edge


About $25 for the above.

Rear mirror

Make sure the bike has the standard reflectors on the spokes, pedals, front and back as well.

Reflective tape if you are riding an all black or dark bike - wrap strips around your spokes, frame and seatpost

Some would say ALL THE ABOVE TOGETHER Is overkilling it and maybe it is all it takes is one semi-drunk who did a couple too many shots blasting down some rural road at 4am doing 90mph to end you.

Even just a glancing blow off the side of a big 4x4 mirror rig could fuck you up bad and NOW YOU'RE DOWN.

You're laying on the side (if you're lucky and didn't get hung up and dragged) of a rural road at 5am waiting for the next drunk to come along and finish the job.

This is a real concern.

Now if this happens and you are wearing dark clothes on a black bike with no reflectors they could end up hitting you before they ever see you especially when you add dark (limo) tinted windows + stereo blasting and subwoofers thumping.

Now add texting on the phone to the equation.

It's all over. You're roadkill.

You need to make yourself more than just a little visible. They need to see you from a fricken mile away. even if you are sprawled out in the street.

TIP: I use the slap light so they can see where the edge of me actually IS. I usually hang it on the left end of my handlebar - on my rearview mirror. Or on my left ankle so there is a light moving up and down along with pedal reflectors - that says 'dude on a bike up ahead'.

u/Antranik · 2 pointsr/bicycling

I agree that the reflectors are a great idea. Here is some awesome reflective tape! you could put anywhere on your bike! The wheels or pedals are great spots because they are moving and will catch a drivers attention super fast. I agree that headlamps make for an excellent light! Wal-mart sells pretty good ones for $5.

I wear a blinking red light at night on the back of my belt, just set it and forget it until you get home. Something I've thought about before is making a reflective tape belt:

u/Pweeg · 2 pointsr/motorcycles

Buy some reflective tape!

u/sir_rideout · 2 pointsr/bikecommuting

If local laws permit, the 319 bridge over the river looks like a safer bet than the 153 due to its much wider shoulder. I didn't see any signs on the onramp prohibiting bikes on the highway, but check with the Department of Highways (or whatever its called in Tennessee) to be sure.

I suggest picking up front and rear lights ($25-30 should get you a basic set), and some sort of high visibility vest (like this or this). If you're riding after dark, some reflective tape on the bike would make you stand out in headlights.

Good luck, and stay safe.

u/eric_twinge · 2 pointsr/running

You can get scotchlite tape to put on things, and there are many pieces of clothing (like a reflective vest) that incorporate it. Shirts, pants, shoes, etc.

u/Reconn · 2 pointsr/CalamariRaceTeam

I used this for my stuff. But its thin, so itd be a pain for tracing a decal out.

There are 2 inch versions that would be easier to use. Finding the color you want might be hard. Example 1, Example 2

It looks like plain electrical tape until you shine a light on it when its dark.

u/GreenChileEnchiladas · 2 pointsr/ponds

Lookin Great!

But that little bucket will quickly get clogged / problematic.

I might recommend something like this or this. You can easily add a bulkhead fitting and give yourself a way to have the water spill back in the pond. Then you pack a few mint / horsetail / lizard tail in there and you won't have much of a water clarity problem at all.

Too much plant filtration is just right.

PS. this is a great product as well, but you can't fit as many plants in it. 1 pot of mint would do wonders tho.

You can buy helicopter tape for cheap.

tape everywhere that will rub on the bike, even top tubes . keeps the frame looking like new. prevents cable rub, and its clear and very hard to see.

your frame will be fine, stick a patch of tape over the area so it doesnt get worse.

Receiver hitch from . Rack is very basic, this one:


I added most of the red retroreflective tape and replaced some of the bolts with stainless eyebolts from the hardware store.


The straps go to the two attachment rings at the front of the trunk, up and over the trunk lid where I've protected the paint with some helicopter tape.


The instructions for the receiver hitch said not to attach a cantilevered load like this without reinforcing with straps.


I don't have this thing on very often, but we're going camping tonight and it will be a lot easier to pack this way. I'll probably just have the cooler on it.

You could spend $25 on a trash can and maybe $5-10 on stuff trying to get it to seal.

Or you could spend $55 on an HDPE drum with the seal built in.

I'd look up what your can is made out of, reference this to see if it is safe. Also what temps it can hold. I like HDPE because I can dump hot liquid in it without worry.

But really, sealing isn't that necessary. Keep bugs out, but that's really it. No oxidation concerns. More on infections later.

As far as heat, I wouldn't worry. Many of the esters and phenols created from hot fermentation will be cut out with your early heads. It's really not a big issue. But 70-80f would be great for whiskey, and and I wouldn't expect it to get any higher even with the thermal mass of 20-25 gallons.

And sanitation... Well. I don't really worry too much. I spray my fermenter down with water and store it open, upside down. No sanitizer, not really necessary. But if you really want, spraying starsan should be fine. Mild infections are good for complexity though, so a lot of people skip it.

I did recently get a bit of mold when I stored it incorrectly and had some liquid... Whoops. Luckily HDPE can be bleached.

u/RahRahWakeForest · 2 pointsr/HomeImprovement

I had to do a double take to check that I didn't post this last night without remembering.

I am going through this same process with the 10x14 attic space above our bedroom. I started off with Plan B and tried a few different methods. Filter bags filled up much too quickly and would have been expensive but they did a great job of containing the mess. I have a Dust Deputy attached to my vacuum which helped, but inevitably, the shopvac would get clogged with insulation that made it out of the vortex. My most recent adaptation was to attach the dust deputy to the top of a 40 gallon airtight drum I bought from amazon and then use some old pantyhose around the shopvac filter. This greatly extends my times between either emptying the shopvac or emptying the 40 gallon barrel. Inevitably the shopvac gets filled first but the pantyhose does a great job of keeping the filter in usable shape.

I did buy a Toro leaf blower/vacuum and it worked well but I didn't have an airtight container at the time so the fine insulation would just blow out from under the lid of the trash can I was using. If you have ANY holes in the tubing, you will have a dusty mess on your hands. I plan on retrying this method on the remainder of my attic in the next couple of weeks. If/when it doesn't work adequately, I will buy some insulation bags from Amazon and that should finish the job for me.

I'm not going to try this(or I might) but I think if you daisy chained two dust deputies and two drums, you would be absolutely fine with a shopvac.

I also made the mistake of failing to consider the difficult in mixing the Green Fiber cellulose bales without their machine once I had removed the old insulation. I only needed 7 bags for above our bedroom but man was that a PITA. I used a concrete mixer attached to my battery powered drill and managed to get in a great rhythm but having the machine would have been a million times easier.

Ground yourself on the case before touching anything, don't work on a carpeted floor, and if you want to be particularly cautious, get a grounding strap like:

u/illuxion · 2 pointsr/24hoursupport

ESD wrist straps are usually something like a megohm to ground so that there is enough of the path to discharge any static buildup, but not enough current to kill you should something go wrong. If you work on live equipment and have a short to ground on one arm and touch something with the other, the current path goes straight across your chest. Here, $1.73 for a strap If you want to make one you need 1 megohm resistor to put between your body and the ground.

u/BallsOutKrunked · 2 pointsr/preppers

I'm in California where our two largest concerns (mine, anyway) are earthquakes and fire.

For earthquakes it's standard preparation stuff because aspects of grid can shut down for short or long periods of time. There's also the "get out of the house now!" type situation which is really just shoes and a flashlight, or just your human body. If your bag is downstairs and you're upstairs you're not going to run to a bugout bag first. It's just get out (depending on the quake, the building, etc).

I do have a bugout bag primarily for fire evacuation, which has:

  • Important docs. Homeowners policy, our will, healthcare directives, passports, social security cards, etc.
  • A printed road map of the state (thin book).
  • A kickass little am/fm radio.
  • A handheld 2m radio programmed with area repeaters, I have a mag antenna in my truck.
  • Geiger counter. Way over the top for people to have but I bought one so where else would I put it.
  • 4 way water key.
  • Spare credit cards, some cash.
  • Medications we need.
  • USB chargers.

    I also have a google spreadsheet printed out that has the items we want to take. The evacuation orders can come at any time and you might be knee deep in some project or sick on the couch, you need to be able to mindlessly grab items that a smarter-you considered bringing. The bag is just the one that we're really screwed if we don't have. This is my list, it's taped under my desk at home.

    Edit: also, there's a column for different family members. My kids have stuff they're supposed to grab (a change of clothes, etc) while mine has the chainsaw and a shovel.

    It's possible you'll have less than 20 seconds to escape your home but chances are you'll have at least a few minutes, maybe even a few hours. Having a list of things to grab from the house thought out in advance seems reasonable to me. And some stuff that's super useful (like dumping everything from the medicine cabinet into a bag) is more of an instruction than an item, per say.

    Dolls (for kids)


    EMT gear

    Backpacking food


    Gasoline tanks

    Wet wipes

    Toilet Paper



    Map (Marked)

    AA/AAA Batteries



    Solar Panel



    Medicine Cabinet


    2m Radio

    10 gallons water

    2m base antenna

    2m pvc ant mast

    I also have a list of things I need to do if I leave the house, again this is tailored to fire evacuation. This is taped to the inside door of our utility closet. Easy to find but house guests aren't staring at it and we can keep our home more "homey" looking versus a forward operating base. These are taken from CalFire's suggestions and my own experience in and around fire.


  • Remove flammable window shades, curtains.
  • Remove flammable objects from walls, windows, doors.
  • Shut off gas (crescent wrench).
  • Turn on all lights.
  • Turn off HVAC.
  • Place flammable items in open area.
  • Connect garden hose, drag to driveway, charge hose, controlled by gun nozzle.
  • Place buckets of water in driveway.
  • Place ladder in driveway, visible.

u/Aerik · 1 pointr/bicycling

These are exactly what I have on my spokes, they work really well. I also took the extra hub stickers and put them on my helmet instead.

Also in auto parts stores or paint stores (interestingly) or the corresponding departments of a larger store, you can find reflective tape. So far I've found white and red. I also usually find it right next to an identically sized green tape, but that one's not reflective, so don't fall for it. It'll be about two inches wide and not that long, it's kind of expensive. like this (though what I found wasn't that expensive)

If you cut it half as wide you can put it down the smaller parts of your frame (such as the chain guide), on pedal cranks, strips on your helmet, on any chain/cog guards, and if you really have steady and accurate fingers, around your spokes just like the Light weights stickers. Use full-width strips to make rings on the fuller parts of your frame.

I even took a leftover bit of the reflective tape and put it on the vinyl tube of my hydration pack, which hangs from the right strap. When I tuck it up into the left strap, I have a perfectly symmetrical reflective line across my chest.

I suppose if you don't mind wasting a whole lot of tape, or using a bunch of odd leftover scraps, you could lay the tape over the divots in your helmet and use a razor blade to cut out exactly the elliptical shape that's concave relative to the convex overall shape of your helmet. That would be cool to see. I don't have the guts yet.

The tapes can often be more reflective than the cheapo reflectors that come with your bike, so it's also not at all a bad idea to cover those surfaces as well.

Finally there' s the biggest amount of coverage you could possibly get, cover your frame. Or less extreme but definitely beyond the norm, buy fenders and cover those.

u/DatumPirate · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I'm not sure how much advice you need, so I'll give you a round-up since it sounds like you aren't too familiar with your redfoot yet - forgive me if I'm overstepping here. (Number one question, are you sure it's a redfoot?)

Ours is only about 6 inches long/4.5 inches wide and, since we keep her in an apartment for now, she lives inside one of these stock tubs:

Depending on just how big yours is, it wouldn't be the worst idea to stick with the kiddie pool indoors - but if it were me, depending on her size, I would try to get a second pool, cut some of the walls out, and try to make one big/long pool. If she's as big as I envision, the ideal situation would be that she gets at least half of a small bedroom. ;)

She'll need some flooring/substrate in there, and you'll want to have some UV lamps and a heat lamp suspended above his home (there is some good advice about these three elements on this page: You might need to construct something out of wood or metal to hang these lights from. If there's a reptile store anywhere near you you might give them a call or visit to see if they have any suggestions, too.

She's also going to need a soaking/drinking dish. She should be able to climb in and out of the dish pretty easily, and it should be deep enough to soak in without having to submerge her face or strain her neck. Keep the water pretty clean cause she'll drink out of it too (ours likes to poop in the water so keep an eye out for that). Soaking is very important!

They also really like moderately high humidity (being a tropical/subtropical tortoise), so I have a reptile fogger (a glorified humidifier) that pipes in steam to the tank. Too much or too little is problematic, but if the air in your home is dry this is definitely a must-have, and you can figure out what's best as you go.

Do you have feeding under control? Stay away from pellet food unless you're really desperate and go for diet as described here ( and here ( Try to keep uneaten food out of the cage lest you attract bugs. Get him some cuttlebones (just search it on Amazon) and leave it in his cage - replace it when you see it has been eaten!

First, the dust bible. I know at 4" hose you can only pull 349 CFM. Smaller the hose the less the possible airflow.

Second, Festool makes a great vacuum but IMO it isn't the right choice here. For the money, they don't move a ton of air.

Simplest choice - get the Harbor Freight Dust Collector for $170


It pulls about 750 CFM at 5" hose. At a 4" hose you can only get 349 CFM. Go smaller and you drop even more. Won't be super quiet and not HEPA

u/cryospam · 1 pointr/mead

Check craigslist first for carboys. I got 5 6.5 gallon glass carboys for 75 bucks last year. As far as the rest...don't spend a ton.

You want a large primary fermenter, I don't use the buckets because they're too small if you want to use a bunch of fruit for a melomel. You can get a very high quality 14 gallon lab quality HDPE container for 31 dollars drill a hole in it and put in a bung with a 0.25 psi ozone check valve. You never have to worry about your airlocks going dry!!

You want a large stainless steel spoon, no plastic one as they are flimsy and will bend. I think I paid 7 bucks for mine at my local brew place.

You want a carboy brush that you can attach to a drill. I bought mine locally 3 years ago (it's a cheap shitty one like this) and I still use it all the time and it hasn't had any problems.

For sanitization, go Iodophor, it's cheap and it doesn't foam like StarSan, making it easier to rinse out carboys after you buzz them with the brush on your pistol drill. Buy this locally, it's very cheap, and you don't use a lot (like 1 cap full for a carboy) so if you buy the 4 ounce bottle, it will probably last you a year or more. I brew probably 100 gallons a year, and the 16 ounce bottle I bought 3 years ago is still like 1/3 full.

And always go glass, fuck plastic carboys.

For chemicals, go to your local brew place and get some bulk potassium metabisulfite it's the same thing as in campden tablets but it's cheaper in loose form, and a 1/4 teaspoon works just fine in place of a tablet.

I also buy potassium sorbate, it works differently than sulfites to stop fermentation, I use both when I use chemicals at all. You should get this locally, shipping accounts for most of the amazon cost.

You will want an autosiphon, doing it with the racking cane can be kind of a pain in the ass when you're brewing alone. I use a vacuum pump, but don't put up the 200 bucks until you know this is a hobby you really like. Again, get this locally as it's bulky but light so you'll get it cheaper vs buying online.

I don't personally use yeast nutrient except for a very few specific high test (like over 20% ABV) meads. I use raisins, they provide tannins (so you don't have to buy that in loose form) they help to acidify the brew just a bit (so you don't have to buy acid blend) and they provide plenty of nutrient for your yeasties. I add like 1 cup of finely chopped grocery store brand raisins when I brew to each 5 gallons of primary fermentation. Toss these in with your initial water boil to sanitize them and help to break them down a bit for the yeast. You can't taste the raisin after the yeast is done with them, they marginally add some more sugar, but it's so little that I don't even bother to take this into consideration when calculating.

For corking...start with 20 ounce beer bottles and a crown capper. The reason I say this is those lever action corkers fucking blow, none of them are good, and you'll end up with mead all over the place. Until you're ready to invest in a Portuguese floor corker stick with oxygen absorbing crown caps and 20 ounce beer bottles (which you should also buy locally as shipping will kill you on these.) I still bottle all of my no chemical meads in 20 ounce beer bottles to prevent them from launching corks.

Lastly, ditch the hydrometer. Get a Refractometer that has both brix and specific gravity. You will lose less wort and you don't have to worry about accidentally dropping and shattering the thing (which always happens 5 minutes before you need it.) Hydrometers are SUPER fragile.

u/eisforevan · 1 pointr/woodworking

So what I would do is get a piece of magnetic imaging film [1] and survey the desk area for fields. Besides that I would introduce an insulator, for any development board I work on, I have used those green craft boards [2] which are seem to be great insulators.

You could also do an "experiment" with these where they have to taste different foods to see the changes in flavor.

Gummy brains for goody bags.

A variety of safety glasses for all your scientists!

I like surprises! :D

I held my own Mad Scientist party and I actually bought real beakers and test tubes! For a kids party though:

Biohazard treat bags

Hand Boiler Toys

One easy project to make for the kids is Glow in the Dark Bubbles

Surprise me.

Shes' gonna need a wig

And a good set of goggles

someone needs to wear these maybe even her...

You should decorate the lab with this

These would be great to fill with candy as party favors

.... or ....

TEST TUBE BUBBLES!!!! These things are touchable bubbles. PRO TIP: USe ONLY OUTSIDE. Shit makes a mess on the carpet. Easy to vacuum... but still...

Crazy cookie cutters which are perfect for this!

Temporary tattoos

Atomic super balls would be fun too!

A jello brain mold

Biohazard bags for party favors maybe

A geyser aka mentos/coke mixer for kids. That looks fun enough to get for myself. lol

Gravity goo something I would also play with. lol

Insta-snow seems like a good experiment for kids

I should stop now. I used to love planning my kids parties when they were little. Damn them for growing up.
