"QUANTUM SHOT" #342
Fun Logistics, Issue 7
The world is full of day-to-day challenges, seemingly common problems, which in some cases defy obvious solutions. Overpopulation, difficult traffic situation, shortage of finances and most basic tools - all contribute to the over-the-top, wild spurts of creativity, super-energetic ways to achieve things, often with mixed success...
Take for example, this grassroots photographer, who came up with simply genius advertising solution. If you can make use of police speed camera equipment, why bother with your own?

Unexpected uses of common equipment
More scary than funny:
One family in Laos uses unexploded bombs for furniture!
(bombs dropped mainly by American B-52 bombers during 1964-1973)
They also use unexploded bombs as support structures for their chicken pen:

After a huge snowfall:
The absence of a fridge is no reason to have your booze warm:
Some ways to cope with air-conditioning problems:
Good use for the communist memorabilia in the era of rampant capitalism:
Not a good way to warm yourself:

Strange way to dress:
(but probably the only one available)
Dress your cows in a fearsome way, immune to any predator:
(this could be photoshop, but you get the idea)
This is actually quite sad. The absence of toys makes kids to play with whatever they have:
This "converted" ambulance is not too cheerful, either:
What was once a raised floor, now can be used for a new "jump, but don't break your leg"-kinda sport:
How to combine studying with exercise:
How to quickly finish you job.. and shuffle off your mortal coil at the same time:
(advertising, original unknown)
The bigger the load, the stronger the resolve to haul it
Five riders... count them, five:
Well, sometimes you just have to do what needs to be done...
Overload strikes again:

Tris describes the image above: "Bahai, Chad/Sudan border: These transports come down across the desert from Libya. Loaded with anything and everything conceivably tradable, they crawl, sometimes doing no more than 15 or 20mph across the dunes and the desert tracks, across vast stretches of uninhabited Sahara, through areas rife with landmines and bandits, across disputed militarized zones, and along this road that leads them along the frontier with Darfur, then and now the world's worst humanitarian disaster. Yet somehow they make it through. I have such respect for the endurance of the drivers and passengers (yes, passengers, usually perched like insects atop the chaotic mound of cargo) who travel what has to be the most inhospitable route on earth."
Packed "as sardines in a can":
Karachi, Pakistan, 6:30 am -

Roof can be utilized as well:
Best transportation is the one you invent yourself
Some people take pride in their mobile hybrids. Check out this festive sled, for example, pulled by respectable BMW (or Honda?) horses:
Absolutely refusing to die:
"I did it my way"
Some parking is simply inimitable
Parked in a bad place, at a bad time:
