Short people got no reason

When you’re job, after installing a new window, is to add caulk in order to finish the job, what should you do? 

Well, you should probably caulk it and finish the job. Consider it otherwise unfinished. 

But what if you are short? Now that’s a predicament. 

Not for this window installer. When ‘he’ found he was just a bit too short to reach the caulk to the top, did he get a ladder? Grab a chair? Ask someone for help? Jump? 

Nope. 

Just do your best. 


This deserves a closer inspection to see how close short guy really got. Yup, just a bit too short. 


Want to bet there’s missing caulk along the top? You feeling lucky?

On the road

This is a chimney elbow, aka chimney pipe, commonly used for well, chimneys and stove pipes exhaust.

Then, there are bus exhaust pipes. Nary the two shall meet. Or so you thought.

This gem combines the two in a way you may have never thought possible. Or thought smart.

But it was functional and held, at least for the few minutes we drove nearby on a highway at high speeds.

This was captured in the Czech Republic. Turns out, people in other countries DIY it crappier but cheaper, too.

Swing out, sister

Reduce, reuse, recycle. It’s an important lesson, one that children can learn from an early age.

Tires are sturdy, long lasting and have lots of reuse possibilities. Holding a little kids bottom while they swing high into the air seems like a really fun way to make good use of old tires. And unless you are making tire furniture, swings are the best alternative.

Crappier but cheaper, BUT totally cool.
