Crafty Cars

Here is a good rainy-day project. You just need some HP card stock and a HP printer with genuine HP ink. OK, maybe any paper will work. Probably any printer too. I'm surprised they didn't but HP logos on the cars.

One patrol on the sub, I used a photo copier create plans and build a 30-inch paper model submarine (there is a lot of time to kill on patrol). Having unlimited access to ships drawings, it was very detailed. Being paper, however, it didn't last long. Someone stuffed some hoses into the locker I kept it in and crushed it. Maybe that is why they make the real ones out of 4" thick high-strength steel.

I know this has nothing to do with your post but I wanted to tell you which Seinfeld episode I was referring to. It is the one where Elaine sees Mr.Pit eating his Snickers Bar with a fork and tells the guys about it and pretty soon she keeps seeing people eat desserts like cookies and candy bars with forks. It is a pretty funny one but I guess they are all pretty funny.
