The game "Marbles" is often considered to be an antiquated, boring game, but, in reality, it is a fun game that has simply been forgotten by a technological generation. The goal of this instructable is to bring back old memories, and to help the new generation learn a new game. Enjoy!
Youtube user "King of Random" makes a lot of awesome stuff. Combine that with his ability to give good instructions and you have all the qualities of a talented maker. Enjoy!
The author wrote, "Let me start by saying that I have wanted to build a velomobile for at least five or six years. I've been collecting little bits of research since then, but things finally reached "critical mass" just a few months ago. The combination of assistance from a Coroplast velomobile group on Facebook, the rediscovery of some old CAD designs, and the results of extensive glue testing (yes) culminated in what I call the "Facet V1."
("The Vector" seemed too generic, and "The Polygon" was too geeky.)
The Facet V1 is made almost entirely out of Coroplast, the same corrugated plastic that many election signs are made from. The plastic shell is wrapped around a Catrike Expedition recumbent trike. This is a well-known build method, with dozens of examples all over the net. I'd suspect that people have been building coroplast shells over their trikes ever since both objects existed in the same Venn diagram. So this is definitely not a new thing, but my Instructable is hopefully one of the most comprehensive you'll find anywhere."

If you have any experience with tools, than you have experienced the "Black-Hole Effect." (Yes. I did make that name up. I think.)
The Black-Hole Effect is an interesting and mysterious phenomenon. It is the cause of all unmatched socks, missing pieces, and lost tools. It seems to select the tools that you most need for the project you are currently working on, and suck them into oblivion. This instructable will not tell how you to prevent that from happening, but, instead, tells you how to replace those tools that are lost to the yawning abyss of nothingness. That said, don't take this tutorial too seriously. Yes, it does contain useful information, but in the ideal situation you will still have all your tools, and will not have to use the following tricks. Enjoy!
