Creativity gone bad - whatever gets the job done!

Some people need a boost to get creative, others have to to come up with darnedest ideas - just to meet the challenges of everyday life. When faced with shortage of tools and tight circumstances, these people do not panic, but start inventing - sometimes using everyday object in extraordinary way:



Solve your exercise dilemma:



Short on chess figures? try this:

Using suitcases as a support structure is a bad idea (even if you fill it with bricks) -


(image credit: This Old House)

This airport (Sacramento, California) has a different suitcase problem -



Weird car enhancements:



The text under the picture says: "Nail protection". This is probably how that car owner used to protect his tires from punctures by nails deliberately scattered on the road. Here is some hi-tech:



Very, very crude GPS device:



In the absence of boutiques, try a different fashion:





"Sorry, did not have enough time to buy stamps - here is 5 cents for your trouble" -



Maybe this is the cheapest way to travel:



This however, is not a way to travel, period:




Unique Vehicles



This seems to fulfill the role of a school bus:



Not much of a car, but a cool audio system:



I am not sure what this was before - a bomb, a missile? - but now, it's a motorcycle:
update: it's made from a drop tank (external disposable fuel tank)



Are you bored? Start keeping the score:



Use a piece of big pipe to hold the mini-car races:



or just "walk softly and carry a big... horse" (for exercise?) -




Strapped for space?

Sometimes your personal space is reduced to almost nothing:



You can still catch some sleep:







No garage? No problem! -





Secure your car with an anchor - amazingly, this may even be effective:










Carrying things

Well, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do... Carrying a fridge in El Paso:

Need to deliver BBQ? Put it on (and around) your head:

(sent by Ozzy in Cornwall, England)





















Pigs are brought to the market by various means:





But don't get too carried away with pigs (what is going on here??):




Danger is my Middle Name

These guys obviously skipped the safety meetings:

The anchor won't be terrifically effective, since it's attached to the wheel via a rope. A chain would have been better.

The airport photo is the Sacramento airport in California. Funny art piece I reckon.

Almost certainly neither a bomb nor a missile, but a drop tank (external disposable fuel tank).

Very popular for salt-flats racing conversions in the past.

yep, the Sacramento airport suitcases are art - supposedly a whole lot of lost luggage. It's really neat to look at.

The text under the picture of the vintage car with the brooms says: "Nail protection". This is probably how that car owner used to protect his tires from punctures by nails deliberately scattered on the road.

PS - Your name suggests you might already know it by yourself, but I thought it would be nice to share it with other non-Hebrew speaking readers. Cool post!
