Wow. Just...wow. One end of the weapon is a slingshot. The end contains a steel ball for whacking, and a 6 inch spike for...spiking.

Too much sugar in yogurt!

by bulrush on 01-03-2012 at 11:59 AM
Activia yogurt has more sugar per ounce than a can of Coke. Here are some comparisons. Serving size (oz)/sugar grams/sugar per oz:

Activia 8oz/37g/4.63g
Dannon Oikos yogurt 8oz/27g/3.38g
Coke 12oz/39g/3.25g
V8 Splash juice 8oz/16g/2.0g

For low-fat protein, try jerky instead. It might have a lot of salt, but it is low in sugar and fat.

Acid etching knife blades

by bulrush on 06-15-2009 at 01:05 PM
I thought I would try acid etching my initials into a knife blade with muriatic acid. If the acid gets masked with masking tape, then cut out my design, then add drops of acid for 4 hours, I think that should do something.

Anyone ever tried acid etching a design into metal?

UPDATE: The acid etching worked though I had to use clear nail polish for a mask. Masking tape didn't work. The picture is here:
