"QUANTUM SHOT" #295
Necessity is the mother of invention, yet again
Wow, we've had the last "Logistics" issue only a month ago, and yet we've received so many pictures and documented instances of inspired madness in the face of the tight circumstances, that we are pressed to publish another part of this series. Could it be that the world is spinning faster (and getting hotter) so that more and more people are forced to invent things on the spot?
In any case, enjoy this compilation, and continue sending us the strange sights you see around you.
(Most of the source sites and mailed pictures don't credit the original photographers, so please help us with identification so that we could include this info on the page.)
