In drawers
This week, you've voted to rummage through your drawers and make something with the results.
Pick a drawer, open it, empty it, abuse it, take a photo and post it.
Or if that doesn't work, just photoshop the nick nacks you find.

surveillance
This week we're taking a close look at the government's plans to spy on us. They want to read our Emails, peek in our zips and even fiddle with our software's backdoor.
Depict your thoughts on this and suggest what other draconian policies they might be plotting.

Homemade Booze
SpanishFly writes, "I have a 'make your own absinthe' kit here, fucking terrified of making it...

"Tell us your stories of when you got so drunk on homemade mead you pissed in the cupboard.
Or tell us about the time you tried to buy wine stabiliser but got chased out of the friendly merchants shop because that compound is used to bash cocaine.
Tell us about the trials and tribulations of not being able to afford 4 cans of strongbow and couldn't brew your own poison so you got pissed on antifreeze and the next day pissed in your own mouth."
