Brilliant Ideas For Reusing Old Things


"Usually when the thing goes down, we throw it, and at first glance it seems logical, why, for example, no one needs an old piano in the house to occupy so much space? But people with creative thinking can hardly agree with this line of thinking, because they have left there will always be a couple of ideas that will give a second life to things out of service."

when you get really good at it maybe you can make something like this..



This is probably not something you are expecting when you see the title of this post, but if you're good enough to be able to work out the mathematics behind all this then I suspect you would not have intentionally clicked on a link called 'Batman' in the first place.

For Info - New Site Commenting Policy

Hello, due to the amount of spamming going on on this blog I've applied a new policy to stop this crap spoiling the browsing entertainment of my regular visitors and tbh, annoying the hell out of me :-p

Now you can still post a comment, but you'll need to register and then login to do so. The comment will then have toi be approved by me for it to appear under comments. If you leave some genuine feedback a couple of times - even if you're slagging me off I'll flag your username as trusted and then I won't need to approve them every time.

I get emailed all the comments - you may not see many but this is a big blog now and they're there, believe me., and for all the genuine commenters - know that I've seen them and appreciate the support and kind words, as well as the criticism and piss-taking:-)

This policy may seem a bit draconian but please bear with me while I get Captcha set up on the server and then I'll loosen the rules again.

Thank you for understanding / not caring (I don't know which applies)

beautiful women from around the world

Hey! I've been around a bit and it's not just beauty that is omnipresent, so is intelligence, humour, people's characters and all qualities that make up a human being.

You're wandering around villages in Africa and you meet someone who has almost exactly the same personality or sense of humour or turn of phrase that instantly reminds you of someone you know from back home or somewhere else. I guess that is how psychologists are able to categorize (read label) us all eh?


Baltic Sea - Finland. I like my ships, me :-)
