Over Complicated Life Hacks – Volume 2

published on July 17, 2020

Welcome back to overcomplicated lifehacks where we take common problems and engineer a convoluted and unnecessary solution let's get started oh the pitfalls of modern day dryers you toss in some clothes and return a bit later owning the fine that they shrunk

Five sizes too small is there any way around this torturous debacle well sure you could hang them on a clothesline but that's far too unsophisticated for our tastes we prefer to keep things classy by mounting our

Clothes on a commercial high velocity air circulator but your dollar store box fan will work just fine get yourself a handful of clothes pins a powerful fan and your soggy shirt using the grill of the fan clip the base of

The shirt at four points to secure it in place we worked around the fan latching the fabric at points that would ensure maximum air flow once your clothing is secured fire off the switch and watch in awe as your shirt becomes a wacky

Inflatable tube man just give it a few minutes to dry off and then you can get back to collecting bottle caps washing veggies by hand can be a pain if you even bother doing it at all but chances are you've got a machine that would be

Happy to wash them for you grab a sack of potatoes and dump them right in or if you prefer to be more meticulous carefully load them onto the top rack and make sure they're held nice and secure go ahead and lock up your

Vegetable washer and set it to run on a quick rinse with just water no soap is needed once it's finished pop it open and revel in the majesty of your ingenuity and laziness combined the American Chiropractic Association says

As many as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some point in their lives our proactive solution is to install a classy pull chain over our porcelain throne so that you can avoid that awkward back-breaking turn to flush

The toilet get yourself some rope in a ceiling hook install the ceiling hook just above your toilet put slightly to the side now remove the lid from the upper deck of your sauce collector and take a look inside this tube here

Releases the flap on the tank when it's lifted allowing the toilet to flush so all we have to do is lasso it off and throw it over the ceiling hook simply tie a knot around the base of the flushing mechanism and run the rope out

The back of the tank as you can see just by pulling up on the rope we're able to trigger its action place the lid back on top and loop your rope over the hook and give it a nice party pool see it's just that simple now you can go number two

While making sure your back is number one so you've made a gnarly spill in your kitchen but lack basic cleaning supplies just like every other self-respecting bachelor fear enough this protip will get you

Back in business go ahead and unscrew a broom handle we're have a slack hanger and get some rubber bands loop the rubber bands over the end of the broom handle while twisting and doubling them back to make sure they're nice and tight

When you've got two or three on the rod snake the hook of the hanger underneath the band's and make sure it's snug and secure next go ahead and grab that shirt that your dryer shrunk and cut a piece off that's about four inches wide

You're gonna want to cut some strips into it then fold it over the center of the slack hanger finally you're gonna go ahead and clamp that hanger closed and just like that you've made a fantastic mop that also doubles as a fine

Conversation piece just look at it go leaving that streak free shine oh and you also scored a new outfit for that awesome electronic music festival next month when it's crunch time the last thing you need is a pen dying on you

Luckily you don't got to go to the store just your backyard take a walk around the grass until you stumble upon a stick or a tree branch swoop it up and take it inside go ahead and break off all the excess pieces as

You really only need a short and skinny piece about the size of a pencil remember you don't select the stick the stick selects you once you have it ready carve down the end into a point you want it to resemble the tip of a pen when

You're done it should look similar to this now all we need is ink blue and red food coloring work great just don't add any water shoot the color of your choice directly in a small container to serve as your inkwell and let's give it a test

Blue is great for signing off on important documents just dip your stick pen into the food coloring and put it to paper shouldn't look any different than a regular pen if you're a teacher grading papers red is probably the color

Of choice so follow the same procedure as before just dip your stick and grade those papers like a pro great job thanks for watching if you're on anything but a TV you should see two videos show up right now you can check those out as
