    The Maker Olympics

    In addition to the races, we’re also hosting the Maker Olympics. Attendees can compete in carnival-like games to win fun prizes and compete to be the top Maker Olympian!

    Games Include:

    Hammer Time!: Contestants compete to drive a nail into a board in as few blows and as fast as possible. Size Does Matter: Contestants guess the length of a rod to the nearest 1/8”. Scrapwood Basketball: Contestants have 60 seconds to sink as many scrap pieces into a trashcan as possible. Screw It!: Contestants compete to screw a 1 5/8” screw into a 2×4 using only a handheld screwdriver. Half Ass: Contestants try to cut a piece of clay perfectly in half. Tape Measure Fishing: Contestants compete to pull objects across a table using only a tape measure. Mini Battle Bots: Contestants battle head-to-head to pop each other’s balloons. Make Santa Fe, a non-profit, will sell tickets that contestants will use to compete in the games.

  • The great thing, for most people, about a food being gross is that you don't have to eat it. Is someone forcing you to eat olives? I mean, maybe you've just not tried fresh olives?

  • How Originalism Ate the Law: America is captive to a legal theory that dictates our laws on guns, abortion, and so much more. We need to act.
  • And apparently assumed that the constitution should be re-written every 17 years or so. That's the 'constitutional convention' ploy, which I'm not so sure it it's a good idea or not, at this time. smh. we're so fecked. wait, where's I put my optimism... it's around here somewhere.

  • What if bikes had been invented earlier?

    Lactofermented Chutney?

    I was given some apricot chutney, and it was so delicious I'm inspired to make some myself. I've done lactofermented things like hot sauce, kraut and kimchi. So I'm curious to access the Group Mind: What are your lactofermented chutney recipes, and tips for lactofermentation? :-D

    Messaging on kbin.social - How?

    I see that there is a messages link in the drop down menu associated with my username. But when I go there I don't see how to send a message. I'm sure this is pretty basic stuff, it's just that I'm suffering from PTSD from being a reddifugee and can't seem to figure it out on my own. TIA! Much appreciation!
