VIDEO – LeBron James Hits the 3-pointer at the Buzzer with 0 Seconds Left in the Game!

Last night, I had the pleasure of watching the basketball game in years, perhaps during the years of Michael Jordan when he used to pull off stuff like this.

LeBron James from the Cleveland Cavaliers, my favorite NBA player right now, hits the 3-pointer at the buzzer with ZERO seconds left in the game.  See the ball and the timer at “0.0”?

DIY – How to Make a Rainbow Spinning Wheel!

Cool rainbow spinning wheel!

It did not take long until I found the problem, the flexible wire that is making an electrical contact on the outer aluminum tape ring is causing way to much friction and it is preventing the motor from spinning! So I had done some adjustments on the flexible wire and it is now causing less friction and the motor can now spin, but one set of LED’s are not glowing! I had kept making adjustments on the flexible wire that is making an electrical contact on the outer aluminum tape ring for more than 20 minutes, but I
