More uses for old stuff
« on: October 16, 2007, 02:47:47 PM »
You know all those things on instructables.com and the DIY network, etc. about recycling old stuff?
Here's some that are amazingly creative, if not downright goofy...

That fly swatter thing looks like it'll cause the same problem as the Opti-Grab (tm) (http://www.muhka.be/...ginal/image_1740.jpg) - the inventor should prepare for a big class action lawsuit.

Well, ummm...
It's not an invention, really, it's a hack. Who you gonna sue? The guy in the picture? The flyswatter manufacturer? I dunno.
BTW- I don't see how in the heck a thingamabob on your glasses is going to make you cross-eyed. I call gold-digger!!

EDIT- All right, I fell for it. You guys are too much...
