Oh my goodness! Those are funny. My dad has always said that all a man ever needs in his tool box is a roll of duct tape. I see others live by that mantra as well.

Thanks for the laughs.

haha. I Just got this email sent to me by my grandpa. Its funny how stuff floats around on the internet.

Some of those are sooo bad. But ones like the pop bottle is kinda understandable. My grandpa for sure would do that!

The rake is a kinda funny, but good idea I guess.

That car and little pull cart one is just plain sad!

The shopping cart grill thing used to be a real problem back when my dad worked for a local supermarket chain. One of their stores was right next to a government housing complex and they would lose tons of carts that way. They tried sending an empoyee out to collect them up and he got the crap beat out of him, until they figured out that if they sent someone early Sunday morning the people who had actually stolen the carts would be passed out and wouldn't notice you were taking their grills back.

Actually the shopping cart bicycle is a really good idea for going grocery shopping with you bicycle.

Grocery shopping on a bike is one of the hardest things to do as a bicycle rider.

Still a tow is probably a better solution.

That shopping cart bycicle is just epic. I mean that isn't even a shoddy idea, it's just brilliant. I would trade my bike for that one, any day. But that swimming pool... Those tablets you throw into them to keep the pool clean make the water a pretty good conductor. On the other hand , you are throwing in an entire socket, so the ground is actually in the socket as well, so perhaps it will only shortcircuit the socket itself.

How do you know that these were perpetrated by men?
I might start a thread called 'women can cook anything' with loads of pictures of pathetic culinary attempts.

Oh my - that refrigerator looks almost familiar. My mother's husband repaired one in much the same way. He also upgraded the repairs by adding wood shelves to the interior.

After noticing the reconstruction on my last visit I bought her a new fridge. laugh

I fix things the same way. My cushion on the bedroom chair is worn out. The foam is all flat. I just put 3 blankets on it to cushion it more.
