oldest thing ive replyed to was in 2005 i think... whats yours?

Camisado (author)DJ Radio2008-08-20

Your welcome. To all the people who thinks it's bad: Cut him some slack man. He's just a kid ( LOL probably weird for me to say that because I'm around his age ). And I for once think this is a neat I'ble. Although I have to admit the pictures suck, grammar's pretty well. So it's ok for u to think it's bad, but this is i'ble is, for one, not made out of fail.

I am all for improvisation with tools, but I honestly believe carrying a 15 dollar Swiss Army Knife would alleviate most of the situations listed. Unless you get really creative a pocket knife won't dry your hair but it will have a screwdriver, knife, and other useful tools. I have used the side of the knife to pound in nails, not recommended but doable.

Unless you do not have fifteen dollars. There are people who surf the internet (children and persons under the age of 16-18) who do not usually have a source of monetary income. Plus, getting to mom and dad's tools may be a No-no. I see the above instructable as a great way to think outside of the norm.

I second not using a sharp knife. I would venture a guess to say that 99% of people would have a butter knife in their kitchen. That is much safer and won't break as easily. Also if you don't have a hammer then do it caveman style and use a rock while gripping it in your palm.

I don't think vacuums give enough Exhaust to dry your hair efficiently.

shooby (author)2008-08-08

Not very well thought out.... 1/2 of your suggestions require the possession of a skateboard, which is almost universally more difficult to obtain than a hammer (or other better suited hammer-like objects). Your hammer idea, if one does have a skateboard, requires either a phillips screwdriver or hex key (allen wrench) to remove the hardware initially. In other words, your demand for tools is doubled before the problem is even solved. Also, knives like the one you pictured can quite easily be damaged if the tip is used as a screw driver, particularly if it is a stamped (as opposed to forged or cast) blade. A vacuum cleaner will expel hotter air if you do not empty the dust tank (and filters), because the motor will have to work harder to expel it, thereby generating more heat. Worried about (minimal) dust on your hair? No problem, I say. The filter will catch more dust if it hasn't been cleaned, just run it for a second or two before use.

"This is actually more efficient than a regular hammer because of the deck's width" maybe for a tack in you wall. You've never actually nailed two pieces of wood together before have you. and a knife if the worst thing in your house to use as a replacement for a screwdriver. First off, why don't you have a screwdriver? just use a church key, or any other metal kitchen tool. and... no
