From the Submitter: I made this contraption to keep my laptop from overheating. It cooled from 69ºC to 39ºC within ten minutes. And yes, those are 2.1 kV transformers. And yes, that's a roll of duct tape.

Let me label that for you:

1: Laptop that he just can't let go of. 2: Books that he tried to read and failed. The Silmarillion (left) and Ulysses (right). 2 - again? come on dude, you only had to count to 5: Anyway, mentioned above. 3. CPU fan stolen from parent's desktop. 4: The crowning achievement of the piece, almighty duct tape.

From the submitter:

So you have a ceiling fan in a room with a cathedral ceiling that needs a light bulb and no ladder available. Using a broom stick, an empty pill bottle, a hair scrunchy, a large chef's knife, and some duct tape you can build Bulb Changing Tool 5000. Simply cut a series 1-1/2" long slits lengthwise starting at the open end of the pill bottle to make a collapseable bulb holder. Wrap the hair scrunchy around the pill bottle to enable a nice grippy action. Punch a hole in the bottom of the pill bottle.

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.

Every once in a while I look at a creation like this and wonder how it possibly came to exist. And then I remember: alcohol.

I have no idea what to think of this. It looks like a tiny avalanche hit a bike store and they just decided to go with it.
