From the submitter:
The Antennae snapped off of our radio at work. We fixed it at first by putting a metal scraper on top, but when we needed to use it, the music was gone. I put the fork in the hole. Now it works almost as good as before!
From submitter azgli: The speaker system at a friend's party was missing a proprietary 13-wire cable between the main unit and the speaker controller. This was my solution to the problem - 13 individual wires insulated with Scotch tape! More Scotch tape kept them from shorting when the sub started rattling things around.
