Fishing knots...

Are getting tied up in knots (or not!) when you have to do an improved clinch? Is a dropper loop driving you insane?  Well no more people!!!  Check out Grog's Animated Knots, a series of animated step-by-step diagrams guide you smoothly through the knotty complexities, so you don't end up with your knickers in a knot!

They also feature help on a variety of other knotty problems - household, climbing, scouting & rescue to name but a few...

Home build your own electric Z-Kart, this guy has...

As major automobile manufacturers around the world pour countless dollars and man hours into the research and development of electric vehicles, George Fortin has quietly gone about making one of his own. While it is true that his Z-Kart is just a one-seater with a range of 20 miles and a top speed of 40 mph that lacks pretty much any safety features or cargo capacity, it is nonetheless a well-engineered little buggy that looks like it would be a blast to drive. Not bad at all, for something that was made and designed and built by an estate agent!  I feel inspired to get the Meccano out this weekend... :0)

So James Bond... :0)
