I've pretty much finished up spinning and plying this fluffy BFL. I'm definitely planning on dyeing it and I'm going to have such a hard time deciding what colorway it should be!
I have to warn you iPhone owners that the following image is scary:
Oh no! It was pretty silly of me, I tripped and it flew out of my pocket. I looked around and Apple charges $200 for screen repair, not to mention that I have to go phoneless for days, other companies weren't much better.
Then I found resources for doing it yourself, which is much cheaper at ~$20 for the new screen component. This is a bit of a gamble, because although the phone is pretty simple inside:
...you can still break off your itty bitty signal antenna. Also, keep in mind that by opening the phone yourself you void all Apple warranty.
I won't lie, this was not the easiest thing I've ever done, and there were times that I was positive I was going to have to buy a new phone. I ended up stripping the head of a really important screw located right above the motherboard...it wasn't that the repair was difficult, I just wasn't paying enough attention.
I'll leave you with this amazing science video featuring some of my personal heros (Brian Cox's job is to tinker with the large hadron collider!). I'm so fascinated by the world we can't see!
This one is also excellent and it has Carl Sagan (who was so adorable!).
