You know how a Hummer limo is a Humo? Well that's a Chevrolet, so I was going to call it the "Chemo," but that's kind of weird.

Instructables user hanlin_y did the math and realized that alkaline batteries are one of the most expensive forms of power that consumers can use. So he/she/it came up with a solution to power your parts even if they don't come with an AC adapter. With a wall plug, wires, and bamboo strips you can run your electronics off the grid; saving money and the environment at the same time.

TIFI WIN: French Man Stranded in the Moroccan Desert Remodels His Own Car Into a Motorcycle, Becomes Eternal Badass

Meet a man sure to go down in the Kludging Hall of Fame. In 1993, Emile Leray, a French electrician, was driving through the Moroccan desert when his Citroën car broke down.

Stranded in the desert, and far out of walking distance of civilization, Leray pulled up his bootstraps, made a small offering prayer to MacGyver (allegedly), and proceeded to disassemble his trashed car and reassemble the parts into a fully functional motorcycle.

Leray is quoted as saying:

"I put myself in what one calls survival mode. I could not have gone back on foot - it was too far."

Survival mode paid off big-time, as Leray successfully rode his new motorcycle back to civilization, and out of the clutches of very painful and unfortunate death in the desert. In the end, he journeyed over 20 miles, which may not seem like much, but let me reiterate: try walking 20 miles in the scorching north African desert heat.

Despite making his journey 19 years ago in 1993, he has only recently begun telling his story to the press. Now that is a TIFI WIN of monumental proportions.

After not being able to twist it open, he offered to run it under hot water. She had a different plan in mind.
