NOT SHARP: Yet More Bright Ideas For The Very Dim
Four more not so sharp suggestions for everyday life...
A sheet of sandpaper makes a cheap and effective substitute for costly maps when visiting the Sahara desert.
Convince neighbours that you have invented a 'SHRINKING' device by ruffling your hair, wearing a white laboratory coats and parking a digger outside your house for a few days. Then dim and flicker the lights in your house during the night and replace the digger unseen with a Tonka toy of the same description. Watch their faces in the morning!
Ford Festiva drivers: Attach a lighted sparkler to the roof of your car before starting a long journey. You drive the things like dodgem cars anyway, so it may as well look like one.
Fool other drivers into thinking you have an expensive car phone by holding an old TV or video remote control up to your ear and occasionally swerving across the road and mounting the curb.
