    [–] Transformer airplane Uncle_Retardo 15 points ago in mechanical_gifs

    Here's a better video that shows how it works. Looks like just that one servo controls both wing, elevator and rudder. However he worked out how to extend the wing is quite genius but I have no idea.

    [–] Crunchie Bar Uncle_Retardo 31 points ago in GifRecipes

    Crunchie Bar by Clubfoody

    Ingredients

    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    2 tbsp. light corn syrup
    2 tbsp. honey
    1 tbsp. water
    1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
    1 tbsp. baking soda
    2/3 cup milk or semi-sweet chocolate, melted
    

    Instructions

    1) In a large pot add 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tbsp corn syrup and 2 tbsp honey and then bring to a boil on medium heat. Stir gently.

    2) When the mixture becomes sticky add one tbsp of water and continue stirring until smooth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and keep stirring making sure the mixture reaches at least 300F.

    3) Remove from heat then add 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tbsp of baking soda. Stir and watch the mixture expand.

    4) Pour mixture into greased silicone molds (you can use butter as greasing) and make sure not to flatten them or they will lose the air bubbles. Let sit for 8 hours until cool and hard.

    5) Remove them from the mold then cover in melted chocolate and place on a wire tray then refrigerate for at lest 8 hours. Serve and enjoy!

    Note: If you are not using a silicone mold, about 15-20 minutes after you pour mixture on a greased baking sheet, use a knife to score lines into bars. Re-score the lines already made about 20 minutes later and then cool completely. Once mixture hardens, gently snap along the score lines.

    [–] REGRET NOTHING? Uncle_Retardo 2 points ago in southafrica

    No worries :-) Streamable is great because one can paste pretty much any video URL and not only share the link but can also download the video file. There's also a crop option and you can also edit the start/stop points.

    [–] What website do you use for booking accommodation in S.A. Uncle_Retardo 1 points ago in southafrica

    Yeah all booked from S.A. IP. I don't know if its more expensive if booked outside the country, maybe try enter some booking details from Ireland then try VPN to see if the quoted price is different. I specifically use them because I have never encountered a psychotic control freak landlord with them and the properties are exactly as advertised. Airbnb, for me, is another story, never again.

    [–] What website do you use for booking accommodation in S.A. Uncle_Retardo 1 points ago in southafrica

    I use booking.com and never had a problem. It's good for finding anything from affordable backyard granny cottages to fancy pancy hotels.

    [–] You don't need to pay someone to learn how to grow your own weed. Here is the easiest way to start growing weed in SA Uncle_Retardo 5 points ago in southafrica

    According to Checkers they say to just re-plant the seedling and pot into a bigger pot but I would definitely take them out the garden pot before replanting, that little cardboardy pot will eventually degrade over time but it would also likely hinder growth during the early stages of the plants development. Just use some scissors to cut the pot open because the soil is pretty loose and it will fall apart if you try to remove the seedling and root ball as is.

    Just need to mention that those Checkers Little Garden soil pods are excellent for germinating seeds of any kind. I planted some ghost chilli seeds in normal garden shop seedling trays with potting soil and it took 90 days for only 30% of the seeds to properly germinate whereas the little Checkers soil packs took less than 14 days for nearly 90% germination rate. Also it's really fun to watch the soil pod expand when you plop it in some water.
