Last Thanksgiving we showed you how to cook a turkey using thermite. Now that summer is here (and somehow already coming to an end), it's time for something more BBQ-friendly. DIYer Ben Krasnow gathers his family and friends together for some nice beef kebabs. I'm not entirely sure about sticking glove-less hands near molten iron or ingesting something that's been touching said lava.

I've seen people who have kludged bikes, air conditioning units, computers, and even full automobiles. Never though have I seen a man who has kludged an entire property.

That man is Vince Hannemann, or as filmmaker Evan Burns calls him, the Junk King. Check out the video, and feast your eyes on a personal temple built entirely out of old crap. It's a kludge kathedral, Notre Dump, Angkor Wat with extra "wat." It's passion that could easily be mistaken for pathology, but I will say this: if the latter is true, then he is the coolest damn hoarder I've ever seen.

She's doing it all wrong, actually. It's much safer to remove the keyboard and really scrub those circuits. And be sure to use a mix of 2:1 Ammonia to Bleach for maximum effectiveness.

Steve Hoefer at Grathio labs shows off his Arduino based door opener, which responds to knocks on the door bye timing the gaps between the sounds. If the gap matches the programmed knock, it unlocks. Let's never use keys again!

Know a little bit about Arduino and care to make your own? Check out his Instructables post!

Youtuber Spiritplumber devised a cheap and relatively-simple way to extend your cell phone's battery life. Recording video on smart phones is notorious for draining your juice and he claims this workaround can last a few hours with just a couple of bucks. Or you can go the less ugly but more expensive route and just pick up one of these guys.

Here we see a guy using PA system to herd cattle. Not all fixes are duct tape and zipties!
