  • Simple Science is a four-track EP by the Kansas City, Missouri band The Get Up Kids. The first official release from the band since re-forming after breaking up in 2005, and the first studio recording since 2004's Guilt Show, the EP was released April 13, 2010 on vinyl on Simple Psyence
  • A person treated by another as a source of pleasure or amusement rather than with due seriousness
  • (toy) dally: behave carelessly or indifferently; "Play about with a young girl's affection"
  • An object, esp. a gadget or machine, regarded as providing amusement for an adult
  • (toy) plaything: an artifact designed to be played with
  • An object for a child to play with, typically a model or miniature replica of something
  • (toy) a nonfunctional replica of something else (frequently used as a modifier); "a toy stove"

Kid Flier 6 1/2 plan: balsa wood stick and copier paper glider for first-time builders and fliers
Kid Flier 6 1/2 plan: balsa wood stick and copier paper glider for first-time builders and fliers
This is the Kid Flier 6 1/2, a flying model (toy) glider that any child or adult can build in less than an hour. It will glide nicely indoors and work outdoors in reasonable winds. The single most important thing is the wing. Its a 2 1/3" (aka 2 3/8", aka 60mm) strip of paper, 8 1/2 inches wide in North America, 2xxmm, A4, in the rest of the world. The first 1/4 of the paper- 2/3", aka 11/16", aka 15mm, is folded down and glued with common "glue stick" to the second 1/4. This makes the paper double thick at the front, and regular thickness in the back. Upside down, that's "c=----" The FOLDED EDGE is the structural stiffener for the wing. If you glue two strips together, not folded but cut separately, it will not be as strong. You could use a very thin bit of white glue instead of glue stick, but the glue stick is lighter and dries faster. Once the leading edge is folded, you'll notice that the wing will balance at approximately 1/3 back from the leading edge. This 1/3 proportion is the only actual number you need to build flying model or flying toy airplanes. If you push the wing forward very gently, in a horizontal position, as if attached to the rest of a toy airplane, it will fly. Keep trying. Sometimes it will slide off to one side or the other, sometimes it will flop side over side, but sometimes, it will fly straight and level, descending. Keep trying. For physics fans in the audience, the potential energy of the height above ground level is being converted to the kinetic energy of wing falling, but also to forward motion in the air. As the wing descends, it displaces the air below it. By folding back the front 1/4, you've changed the density of the wing, moving the center of balance forward. The wing tends to be a bit nose-down, a bit inclined. The air squeezed out by its falling is pushed back and the equal and opposite reaction pushes the wing forward. Now take a moment to cut (scissors work fine) one 6 1/2" long and two 1" long pieces of 1/16" square balsa wood. That's 1.5mm square by about 160 to 165mm for the long one, about 25mm for the short pair. Also cut out a 1 3/4" (1.75") piece of 1/8" balsa wood. That's 44 or 45mm, of 3mm square. Mark the first 1" (25mm) at BOTH ends of the long stick. Now take a nail file or sanding stick or sand paper and taper (sand down) ONE end, over the 1" length, from 1/16" to nothing. That's the back of the plane, where the horizontal stabilizer goes. The area removed is solid red in the drawing above. The thin end is the TOP of the fuselage, The wing will be glued flat onto the fuselage, the horizontal stabilizer will have its leading edge at the lower edge of the fuselage, and the trailing edge at the upper edge of the fuselage. The relative difference in angle is very important. Use white or carpenters' to glue the two 1" (25mm) pieces on the SIDES of the long stick, the fuselage, starting at the 1" (25mm) mark at the OTHER end of the stick and going toward the middle. (Use Courier New or another fixed spacing font for this part:) From the side, upside down, this will look like: bottom front end "================---" back end top This view doesn't show the short pieces because they're along the long piece. But it does show the taper from the full thickness of the fuselage to nothing, over the last 1 inch / 25mm. From the top or bottom, it will look like: front end "......===" "===================" back end "......===" Except the sides of the short pieces will be actually touching the sides of the long piece. From top or bottom, you can't really see the tapper at the back end. Finally, glue the 1/8" (3mm) piece to the UNDERSIDE of the front of the fuselage. That is, to the other end of the same side of the sanded, tapered end, NOW it looks like: front end " #####" bottom "================---" back end top
Industrial Teleporter & HAZMAT HVR-LFTR
Industrial Teleporter & HAZMAT HVR-LFTR
In 1958 a Canadian scientist named Andre Delambre successfully tested a device he had been working on for nearly 20 years, one based on theories imparted to him by Nikola Tesla, an inventor he first met on a train ride through the Rocky Mountain Range in 1938. The world would never be the same. After a few missteps which included the strange disappearance of the family cat, his wife demanded he stop using animals in his testing. Having reached a confident plateau in his research, he used himself as his next subject and it was a success. He had developed a system for disintegrating and then reintegrating matter between seperate chambers. Just when he was about to step into the disintegration chamber for a second test, his Wife walked in and was furious. He explained to her that this wasn't the first time and that the machine worked which calmed and excited her greatly. The news spread like wildfire through the scientific community and Andre would never know how lucky he was that his wife interrupted his second trip. Though he was able to bring his "Teleporter" to life he never managed to succeed in perfecting Tesla's "Wireless Electrical Transmission" and so the chambers would always need to be connected by large cabled systems and consumed massive amounts of power. At least for a time. In 1986 an young man of intellect far exceeding Delambre's would once again reshape the world anew. Seth Brundle, a brilliant and eccentric mind would bring Tesla's dream into the realm of reality. Discovering a way to wirelessly tap the geothermal energy from the earth's core to power any device and then make the cabled noose of Delambre's invention a thing of the past, he made teleportation the easiest, cheapest and most common mode of transportation. His breakthrough made him the most famous person on earth and introduced him to his future wife Veronica Quaife. This would not be his last contribution to mankind's betterment, but all others would be shared triumphs. in 1999, Brundle and his then 10 year old son would develop systems for defying the laws of gravity. These Anti-Gravitational devices would once again revolutionize the concept of transportation and free man up to pursue other, less laborious pursuits. The above image is an example of a common industrial teleportation unit which is simple enough that one operator can control it and any remote loading device. The anti-grav unit shown is a bulky model used primarily for HAZMAT duties due to it's safe and bulky design. The HVY-LFTR1 requires minimal maintenance and has been in service for nearly a decade without being improved apon. A virtual "High Five" to the first person to guess the reference which inspired this. (Other than Tesla, he's just my go to guy)
