~*~ DIY: Do Or Die ~*~
Reppin': NC Wyeth Death Cult
Nestled snugly underneath one of Something Awful's most popular non-humor-oriented forums, Ask/Tell, the DIY forum has steadily built a following of home craftspeople and the criminally insane with the know how and drive to mod anything and everything they see. From car engines and heavy machinery to needlecraft and gluing shit to things, the DIY forum has the answer or at least info on how not to do things from the survivors.
An extremely popular printing technique enjoying a renaissance of sorts with young folks, this thread is one such tentative step into the world of this time-consuming, messy and eventually rewarding hobby.
The internet has brought us great things like ready access to large-dick tranny porn and blogs about celebrities written by bitchy gay dudes, can it help solve a different conundrum of modern living? Let's find out!
For some reason, while all the good girls are into stringing beads and expensive rocks on a string, the cute hipster girls demurely sit on the subway and away in the corner of parties expressing their creativity by knitting one and pearling things.
So cute girl, show me your knits. Your knits, show them to me and I'll sit there longingly imagining the songs I'll write where we are in love forever after I slay a dragon for you with my Fender.
Post stuff you made
Awe inspiring works of forum members. Some of this stuff has to be seen to be believed.
Never underestimate the power of people with time to kill, a drill and a driving need to make a cabinet to showcase their Batman paraphenalia (see pic, special thanks to forums user "gregday" who is quick to note that he is not a cosplayer). Other entries include milled metal pieces, exquisitely carved furniture and pop culture geegaws and catch-as-can-do folkcrafts.

If you've gotten as far as to read Internet articles about Internet forums (as you apparently have) but you're still not killing yourself by eating dishes of incredible unhealthiness devised by fellow Internet people, well I just don't know what to do with you.
It's (almost) summertime! Time to salad out all your busts!
- More than just rabbit food in this thread.
This thread is about Burritos.
- We linked this thread last week, but it's really grown since then. Burritos, apparently, bring out the worst in people.
It's about time I accept it, I have no clue how to feed myself
- Did you know you can make your own teriyaki sauce from soy sauce and cola? Don't worry, you will only have to spend 2-5 minutes in preparation time for this, and while that seems like an eternity, we promise you'll get through it.
Last night's dinner (food porn inside)
- Who needs a tobacco infused custard now?
Do you wish to know what computers will be doing in the year to come? With a sigh I shall exert the minimal effort it takes to reveal all. Feel free to print out these predictions and share them with your friends via fax.
Old mixed signals feeling a little stale? Try some new ones!
