Impressive and Dumb Low Budget DIY Solutions

Life hands us all sorts of technical challenges, and it's up to us to solve them with our own ingenuity. Sometimes that ingenuity leads us to using a defunct school bus as a bridge, and other times it leads us to gluing a fan to the ceiling. A lot of these low budget fixes and DIY solutions are bad, unsafe and extremely unadvisable, so take that with a heaping pile of salt.

Although I would be remiss if I didn't mention that there are no paper clips, used pieces of gum, sticks, wires, or bobby pins anywhere in site. A carpenter can't work without his tools!

Rumor has it this patio was made out of just a Q-tip, a toilet paper roll, and Elmer's glue.

From the submitter:

I was traveling in China for 2 weeks, and had brought a spare camera battery, but no charger. Borrowed a friend's charger, found some wire, and voila.
