Colin Patrick

Have you ever thought about raising chickens? Do you have a cigar box that you're dying to turn into a guitar? Do you need to hypnotize someone? If so, Instructables has you covered. If that site hasn't sucked you in yet, here's how they describe themselves: "a web-based documentation platform where passionate people share what they do and how they do it, and learn from and collaborate with others."

The topics covered run the gamut from the truly crafty and practical to the extremely odd and esoteric. Take, for instance, the recently added directions for creating a paper clone of yourself. If you really want to get away with driving in the carpool lane, and you have the estimated $40 it takes to complete, head on over and get to work on yours today.
