Thanks everyone! It looks so awesome in person and is really creepy when I ran it in my basement surrounded by my roomies tools and props.

Frankina, on the other hand, disapproves as the glow sticks I used apparently are still glowing like 3 days later(she gets grouchy when she doesn't sleep).

Very NICE...! The works on the back side are are cool too...I think it would look good if you could see the lights and pump from the front.

I love the test tubes. They look great. Oh, and after seeing Frankina, I think the real reason she is grumpy is her lack of dates. But it does look like she needs her beauty rest, and soon. :)

Hi LilMissSunshine,

I wanted to point out something and hope you can get it fixed. There is a blogger out there stealing popular instructables and putting them on her blog as her own. Your entry here which also is posted on instructables was stolen. See here stolen instructables

There is a thread here instructable forums where others are having the same issue and are trying to right the stolen material.

Just looking out for other members here. Good luck fixing it

Thanks Spider, I got a message from someone on instructables about it, but as it's midterm time at college and friends and I are vending this weekend, I just haven't had a chance to really look into it. Hopefully I'll have a few mins tomorrow.
I'm glad to hear others are working to get theirs back, maybe it will make my fight easier.

Lol, well I guess it was you. Thanks again, I went ahead and filed with word press. Thing is, I'm kind of flattered people find my stuff good enough to steal lmao!
