You’ve probably had ideas in your life that someone else called dumb or stupid. But if it worked, then is it really dumb? These people prove that sometimes, thinking out of the box is your best option.
1) Is It The ’90s?
This looks a lot like something a 12-year-old would have done in the 1990s when his bike handles came off. Who knew that people still had N64 controllers in their house? I’m actually so proud.
2) Sweet Chariot
This kind man is giving his lady a lift in a lawn mower pulling a shopping cart. Sounds insane, but if they live close by, then those 2x4s are just the right thing to hold those bags on the drive home.
3) Work With What You Got
Sometimes, you have to beat the system. There aren’t many delivery drivers that would really allow you to ride with them but if it’s the only way to get their delivery tip then they probably would suffer.
4) Omit The Humans
If they just attached the rakes to the truck then the humans wouldn’t even be needed. This is a pretty good idea ll around though and the humans do offer that extra control. You can’t leave rakes attached to your vehicle safely anyway.
5) Logging Bus
This takes a few seconds to get used to. It’s an old bus turned into a logging truck. It looks silly but it was probably super cheap to make and was done by the owner himself. So I’d call that a win.
6) Not The Best Control
This wouldn’t give you the best control but it could be effective in the right hands. If you know where that ball is going then it’s voer for the enemy team. Though I don’t suppose it’s legal in structured events.
7) The Desk We Deserve
When we only use the internet for lame Google searches and failing at video games, then we deserve cardboard boxes. But in this case, they were short one desk and they only had this box, so that’s what they used.
8) Fewer Dishes To Wash
This will have you scratching your head but being impressed at the same time. If they use a plastic spoon then they never have to do breakfast dishes again. Let’s buy more single serving cereals for this purpose.
9) That’s Good Carpentry
Not just anyone would go through the effort to do this and not many at all actuilaly have the ability to do this. They even made sure it can still open, it has a lock, hinges, and latch. This is so clever, though not as weather-resistant.
10) If You’re In A Pinch
If you need a backpack but all you have is a plastic bag, then you know what to do. Honestly, we all did this as kids and it’s about time we stop being ashamed of it. If it works, then it works.
11) Put Them In All Beaches
Whoever did this is a kind soul. As you can see, they were all made by the same team. They made these amazing sand loungers and covered them in umbrellas. I don’t know what they are doing at this event, but I want to be there.
12) His Room Is A Computer
This guy turned his bed into a computer room. He took his computer apart and attached it to his wall and ceiling. Now he can play his game laying down and his PC doens’t overheat anymore.
13) They Totally Should
Sometimes, you just need something interesting on in the background. Netflix should make a category specifically for background noise. You want to know what’s going on without really paying attention.
14) That’s A Lot Of Jager
This hurts to look at and was definitely made by someone drunk. It’s good engineering either way but extremely impressive if it was done by a drunk person. They will regret it, but still.
15) How To Boil Water
This guy is a genius. He is facetiming his pasta water so it doens’t boil over and he doesn’t even have to be there. No one wants to stand in the kitchen and wait for this sort of thing. This is the key.
16) Check F-J
This is kind of redneck, but aren’t all of the best not dumb/dumb ideas? They are cooking potatoes and chicken in an old filing cabinet. Makes you wonder what they are going to do with that old basketball goal in the background.
17) Now That’s Lazy
This is smart but also such a teen thing to do. He actually made it sound like he was vacuuming, which isn’t going to work out in the long run, but a big A for effort. It will stall her for a long time.
18) This Is How You Farm
I’m not entirely sure what tehy are doing but it looks like they are picking crops. It’s a great way to do it if you have the hands. It shouldn’t take long and no one gets overly tired. Great family event.
19) Get Those Reese’s Pieces
No one questions a pregnant lady. You could probably just carry the snacks in if you’re pregnant but this way you can also conceal them. Just don’t forget to wear the belly out of the theater too.
20) Try For Apps Too
If you’re going to do this for free drinks, then try to get some appetizers in, maybe even dinner, a movie, and whatever else people want to congratulate you with. This is easier if you actually have a significant other.
21) The Only Way To Use A Racket
Who plays tennis these days? Use your old tennis racket to drain pasta the easy way. If you want to drain smaller pasta then use a badmitton racket. Everyone has a set in the attic or basement.
22) We Need Spotify Memories
Sure, Snapchat, Timehop, and Facebook have accurate memories. But if you want to know how you were feeling on a given day, then you need to pay attention to what you were listening to on Spotify.
23) Better Than A Face Mask
This won’t protect you from germs, but it will free your hands and give you a reason not to talk to people. Plus, it reminds us of that commerical with the guy who wore one of these burger holders.
24) No More Spongebob Hands
Carrying groceries to your house is a pain. Luckily for us and unluckily for employees, grocery stores deliver to your doorstep now. But no one wants to make ten trips nor do they want broken fingers.
25) Greasy Face, But Worth It
This kid isn’t used to cooking. If you are new to cooking then you probably shouldn’t cook bacon unprotected. That’s why this kid used a Little Ceasar’s box to protect himself from splatters.
26) Liz, Short For What?
This guy needs to get married and get married fast. He needs to have a girl and fulfill his dreams for the sake of everyone who read this. I mean, I wouldn’t mind being called Lizard, it’s a whole persona.
27) Hot Tub Pickup Machine
This is strange yet intriguing. They actually filled their pickup with water. Of course, you can see that it is leaking quite a bit but as long as they keep pumping water in, it’ll be okay. Right?
28) The Circle Of Life
This is the sort of thing that dads like to teach their kids. There’s something about throwing food in the floor that is liberating, that’s why people like Colton’s Steakhouse, you get to throw your peanut shells down.
29) Got A Lot Of Oxygen
Will this work? No one really knows but it’s the thought that counts and we know that if this guy got stuck under water in a thriller movie, he’d be the last one standing. Now that’s an interesting plot. Make…the…oxygen…last.
30) Make It Debit
If this works for bills, online payments, and debit cards, then I would like nothing more. You could even make donations without ever becoming rich or paying taxes. But then again, that would be suspicious.
31) Lot Of Work The First Time
This may not be easy to make but once it’s done, it’s a great way to dry your shoes right away so they don’t get moldy, stinky, and give you athlete’s foot. Plus, it looks really high tech no matter what your shoes look like.
32) Get Your Count In
Professors and teachers rarely actually pay attention to the length of the essay aside from whatever Microsoft Word tells them. So adding white words to the end of your essay is only a little risky.
33) Keep The Kids Away
If you have kids around, do not pour wine into the water dispenser. However, if you don’t, then add whatever you like. Mr. Deeds would approve of Hawaiian Punch but who wouldn’t?
34) Squeak, You’re Too Close
This isn’t the best way to not run into someone but it may work in the least of situations. It’s cute too, so at least there’s that. However, it would be quite the predicament if you lost it in a hit and run.
35) Just Move Your Mouth
This guy should invent more things, or become a life coach. He actually got by with having his phone during the a.c.t. just because his ringtone was genius. He’s right, those tests don’t mean anything.
36) Only Cost a Quarter
They definitely stole this from Aldi’s but at least they paid the quarter. Other than that mishap, this is a pretty amazing idea. Those grates mimic a grill and make it the perfect camping grill.
37) This Is Savage And Genius
For some reason, the whole school thinks they are entitled to a piece of gum. But when you only have one pack, you kind of want to keep it to yourself and your friends. So this solution is amazing.
38) Bored In Traffic
if you get stuck in traffic a lot, then make sure you wrap your steering wheel in bubble wrap. It’s important you don’t cover the airbag release. But other than that, have fun popping and relieving stress.
39) The World Needs This
We all know what Shannon is talking about, somehow. There are so many girls with horse pictures who would probably want to date that guy who take fish pictures. Don’t forget the reflection in his glasses.
40) Check That Tattoo
This guy knows what he’s doing. He has an amazing dog tattoo that speaks volumes about his character. He loves these puppies and is feeding them in the most natural way possible. What a man.
