Trust Me I’m An Engineer

One of my engineer friends sent me this series of photos and I just have to share them. These inventions are ingenious for the most part, but my all time favorite is just plain stupid. Thanks Rich for a genuine belly laugh. These people are real aren’t they? Will someone SNOPES me on these photos?

There isn’t any need for a Weber grill at this house, just pull up a chair and light up the charcoal.

An emergency fix which probably became permanent because of its simplicity and functionality.

Have you lost your exhaust pipe?

Just reach into your clothes closet and steal the coat hanger from your best suit.

Now this invention is a space saver. I’m sure the only place this guy had for installing a washing machine was in his john. All the plumbing was right where he needed it. I’m not to sure about the way he has the washer mounted, but it looks scary at best.

I’ll never want to sit on that toilet while the thing above me is spinning through the rinse cycle.

Morning sausages ready in a jiffy, I bet the wife appreciates the nice shiny look she gets on her blouse when she irons.

Grandma has the best idea yet. This is something I will try the next time I work on a  new recipe. The darn instructions are always covered with flour, eggs, or some other stuff used in cooking.

I bet this guy lives in a one room apartment. A rather unique and inexpensive way too cool your hot computer.

Quick draw McGraw has it all figured out. I wonder if his wife is looking for her slipper.

Hey, this fix beats taking the car to the dealer to get a new handle. I’m sure the dealer would charge several hundred dollars. I love the rubber band he uses to get the handle to return.

Need an egg beater quick. A battery-powered drill and a pair of scissors works fine.

This one cures the problem of taking home all the groceries on a bike.

This guy’s Chinese mother in law was too old to squat any more so he rigged a sit down toilet for her.

I hope this not a union electrician at work.  He lives on borrowed time for sure.

The world’s laziest guy couldn’t walk down a flight of stairs to pick up his laundry. My favorite after the electrician.

  1. Yes it does. Thanks.

  2. Hilarious!!! I love these…the recipe book hanger is actually something I may use in the future! Thanks for the laughs!

  3. I like the pants hanger holding the recipe…the rest are questionable, my husband is an engineer and I will vouch for him, if you need an idea, he can usually rig something up…and if we’re on a plane and it’s going down, I want him in my corner, he’ll save me and others, just sayin’!

    • Trust him he is an engineer. Thanks for the comment. You are right Grandma had the only legitimate solution, all the others were desperate moves to an end.

  4. Love it!

    If you want to see much more of this stuff, periodically check out ThereIFixedIt.com.

    Also, if you want to understand how engineers start off as kids, watch this classic 1 minute snippet of Dilbert (taken from a longer 1/2-hour Dilbert episode called “The Knack”)

    • Thanks for the lead. I will go there to see more stupid stuff. Usually I never look for anything it just arrives in my inbox. I loved the Dilbert cartoon. I think he is right on.

  5. Dilbert is an engineer, right??
