I've had him for years and years, just not something I felt I should spew to everybody I know :p he is very very tame, and would likely sit still even if I actually had glued it to his head! Though I never would of course.


Well damn, I love reptiles :p Basically how tame do they get? You can let him run around the room, will he ever bite you for disturbing him etc etc?

I know very little of their behaviour. And I'm speaking bearded dragons like your specifically, I'm pretty sure other lizards all have unique behavior patterns, right?

Well bearded dragons in specific crave human attention and interaction. Mine rides around on my shoulder and goes outside to explore. He doesn't bite often, when he doesn't want to be messed with (Rare) he will puff up his beard and belly and hiss at you, it takes a lot to get them mad enough to bite you. Yes different ones will have different temperaments, however, I find that they are mostly shaped by how you treat and bring up your beardie. If you interact with them a lot from when they are babies it is expected and they love it, if you leave it in the cage and never interact with it they will be less friendly, only because it isn't "normal". Somethimes you can break this behavior when they have been abused, other times that isn't so.

Added one to my laserbee. I got lazy and just used tape.

You don't need a mechanical Ground Screw on your LaserBee...
It uses the new Wireless Ground Screws.....:whistle:

You guys do realize that those ground screws aren't actually doing anything?

A ground connection is a connection to the actual ground, not just a special kind of screw.








You need to mix in some dirt from a local ground source with the hot glue for it to work right.

Well since brain is an electrochemical "device" I guess this guy did a pretty good job at grounding it

I also like to throw people off by using a red wire for grounding :)

^^Understandable DP, this thread was in serious need of a bump.. :crackup:

I'm surprised your turntable didn't explode, just cause you use red wire does NOT make it ok to ground to any kind of "+" FAIL

Schematic?

You need to connect the detonator + to your mains "live" connection, then your ground screw to the - , that should be safe.
