There I Fixed It: A blog about hacking, poorly.

austinb-ipodmuffler

Thereifixedit.com is a site filled with dubious innovations. Some of them are cool, some of them are clever, and most of them are terrifying. Anyone who has ever stood in front of a broken household appliance with a roll of duct tape, one screw driver with a bit chipped off the flat part, and determination will laugh themselves silly browsing through this site. Maybe some of the ghetto hacks we covered before should be in this list.

  1. “Ghetto Hacks” used to be my favorite part of this website, it’s why I started reading it years ago, You posted about stuff you could build with just things you had lying around. Sadly there are almost no posts like this anymore, they all require expensive hardware/kits/etc.

  2. i guess ipod earphones will work but as soon as the pipe gets hot it melts the wire coating and the very thin hairline strand of wire inside will break and the pipe will drop.

  3. Funny web site but it’s very true, everybody getto hacks. getto hacks = 5 second solutions

    Once i used a old cat5 cable for the same muffler problem. It lasted till bought the actual part.

  4. Oh that brings back memories. I forget what I finally used to tie up the exhaust of my old 75 Impala, but I’m sure it was something that makes the earbuds look professional.

  5. I recently used a coat hanger wrapped around the bolts for the heat shroud to hold a broken pipe up. It was still loud but at least it didn’t drag on the ground before I could get it welded properly.

  6. been sitting here laughing for almost an hour.

    i just found a girl with a ziptie i her hair,
    funny thing being that i have zipties in my hair right now(used two as they are a bit short)

    we are currently fixing up our house with the help of our quick witted neighbor, so i’ll need to keep my camera at hand and upload some..

  7. Funny thing is that as i was reading “Anyone who has ever stood in front of a broken household appliance with a roll of duct tape, one screw driver with a bit chipped off the flat part” I realised that was me. :)

    I have a flat head screw driver in front of me right now on my computer desk (Used for a PS2, don’t ask :)) And ma missus said… Hey, that’s you, lol.
