Jerryrigging the world
Though I’ve become more judicious through the years about the broken stuff I keep, I still find myself holding on to junk because they might be useful one day. I pay special attention to broken objects that could be used to repairother broken objects: twist ties whose plastic coating has come off, broken cables whose plastic sheath hasn’t come off, expired credit cards that could be used for all sorts of purposes (as described in one website and in this other website).
Here are a few things I’ve jerryrigged recently. (If the captions are obscuring the photos, you can view the Picasa web album instead.)
