Just for fun, I thought I would put up some pictures of things that “some” men have done in their attempts at great innovation. I would like to hear from you and see if any of these are familiar to you or hear what kinds of inventions you have tried during your lifetime.
Now I am assuming, although I could be wrong, that these are bachelors without any women around. Or I suppose these men may have extremely tolerant wives and/or girlfriends. Who am I to assume anything?
After all I do live with the Hawk and he has his ways of doing things that would never have occurred to me. For example, his painting room. I never would have thought to paint oils in a room filled with boxes, several desks, a music cabinet, his computer, an easel, socks and shirts thrown on the floor, dog hair wadded up into the corners of the room. I can’t begin to imagine how I would think in that room, much less paint. Obviously I’m tattling on myself that I don’t clean his room very often. But it’s too darned hard to get into the place. The sweeper doesn’t even fit in there. And the Hawk can’t stand the sound of the vacuum sweeper, so it’s all his fault anyway.
It takes all kinds to make the world go round as the saying goes. These men who thought up these ideas are obviously unusual, advanced, fresh, novel and ground breaking inventors. I must applaud them for that!
A different kid of Christmas tree decoration theme. Very interesting. But I have been told that God has a sense of humor. I just love the tree topper. Most unusual!
I guess this beats having the drink fall into one's lap or on the floor. At least McDonald's won't get sued over this one falling into someone's lap and burning them to death. That is the really advanced thinking on this man's part.
Love this one. A new way of comfort I suspect. If this guy has a wife I imagine she bought new furniture for the house and left this outside for him to dispose of but he was so unusually brilliant he came up with this cool, new way of using furniture.
A comfy, new way to hunt? Ah, nothing like a beer in the hot tub when hunting for deer. That orange cap might be a tad bit too obvious, but at least the other guys in the neighborhood in their hot tubs won't shoot him thinking he is a deer. Very progressive thinking.
I can't say I've ever seen a plumbing problem handled this way. However it is uncommon and must recieve kudos for that kind of creativity. Poop in a Can. Sounds like the start of a new Animal House Movie coming soon to our neighborhoods. Don't bother with popcorn however, just bring the toilet paper.
What a way to grill! You sure can't buy this one at Walmart, but you do have to steal the grocery cart to use. Truly original mind working on this one.
Ho, Ho, Ho. What a way to go! I've never seen Santa like this before. I wonder if those deer heads are all from his hunting expeditions or did his buddies chip in for this novel way for Santa to deliver the goods? My one and only fear about this one is I hope none of the kiddies are up when this Santa arrives. Could be scary.
This looks dangerous to me, but what do I know? This certainly requires trust by the man outside washing the window. The guy on the inside doesn't look all that concerned, but I must say it's a whole new approach I would never have thought up. What if that guy's pants fall off or his belt comes loose? Never mind I don't want to conjure up any horrific images in anyone's mind.
HUH? Where does this go I wonder? A hole in the lawn chair seat, but the toilet paper goes somewhere else. Now where do things all get put together here when a man sits on his throne. Does the EPA know about this one?
Very interesting and different Christmas decoration on one's house. I guess the mesage here might be something like "piss on Christmas"? Or was this guy just trying to make his wife angry because he's sick and tired of putting all those lights up? I'm sure after this scenario there would be no more decorations coming from this lovely house. Although I have to admit to doing something which I know was naughty. My former neighbor Dottie asked me and another neighbor help her put together two of those reindeer that stand in one's yard and light up. We all thought something was missing though. I quickly grabbed two golden bulbs from my Christmas tree and hung them onto the back of the reindeer's "back private area". My good friend, Dottie, thought surely we would get into trouble, being trapped into Condo laws and rules, but nobody ever mentioned it or reported us. I guess it just looked so normal.
We need our shower head fixed. Maybe the Hawk could try this one. Ah, shucks, we don't have any beer cans in the house. I guess I'll have to walk several miles down the road to one of the Amish houses to borrow one. Oh, whoops, I forgot, they will need to sell it to me. They don't just give away any of their precious objects. Or maybe a trade of some sort?
I kind of like this one. It is inexpensive at least. And it looks like it could do a bang up job on the lawn. I do know Merlin, our shepherd would have a blast with this really uncommon device.
A bit tacky but does provide a nice window. The insulation needs some cover work, but I like the paned window. Quite transformational.
Hmm....never thought to use my iron for this. But since I don't use my iron any longer I might try this. I wonder how many of those little patties I could fit on my iron. Does anyone know?
Wow! Now this is exciting. Group toilet by the fireplace. This should be given a huge award for extremely advanced thinking. Gosh, I'm so speechless over this inventive form of primitive male bonding.
My favorite. Now I know there are NO women living in this house. Just look at those fabulous wipe out tire marks. Best in place for ingenious fun.
