"QUANTUM SHOT" #259
It seemed like a good idea at the time...
Continuing in the fun spirit of it all, we present you another bunch of the inventive and ridiculous achievements of people all over the world. No obstacle is too big, no idea is too outrageous, if you are brave (or silly) enough to go ahead and try it. Most of situations depicted here result from a sheer necessity, not idle experimentation, though. Thanks to all who sent us the pics included here.
Most of the source sites and emails for these pictures do not credit the original photographers, so please help us with identification so that we could include this info on the page.

It's also possible that this picture is taken at the Swedish Air Force base in Såtenäs (Flotilla number 7). The base is very picturesque.. they actually taxi from the bomb-proof shelters out to the runway through scenery like this.
Grow mushrooms inside your computer (or actually, dry them and make a nice soup) -

Army to the Rescue!
Not a big deal, apparently. Watch this video (till the end) to learn how a Chinook helicopter picks up Navy Seals on their Zodiac:
This guy is very confident in what he's doing, so maybe it's safe -
