Does anyone know a good book about all kinds of different life hacks? I mean, a bunch of things, like how to hotwire a car etc, and more elaborated than those "These 25 lifehacks will blow your mind"-articles.
Maybe something like "The Anarchists cook book"? (Which i haven't read, just heard rumors about)

im glad to see you following the new rule, a macgyver pic with every question thread.

how wiring a car has not been a thing for a long time now

im almost positive anarchists cookbook is bullshit/(out)dated

you will find better life hacks on your own through trials and tribulations, instead of in a book

"life hacks" are just a meme that take advantage of people's desire for shortcuts and easy solutions; they rarely if ever actually do anything about the underlying problem. If you have a problem that needs solved, learn about it (google helps), and then solve it. Bada bing, bada boom, life hacked.

Virtually every single title that Kurt Saxon or Ragnar Benson published would be a pretty good start.

I'd have taken this more seriously if you'd have used a term more relative to circumvention of normality.

>life hack
>LYf HACK
>ur life just got hacked

Memes for days.

Honestly though, the idea of 'life hacks', what ever the fuck that is supposed to mean is silly. Most of these bullshit YouTube videos and click bait articles go the long way around solving nothing but completely succeed in making whoever trying look like a complete moron.

>open those plastic shell packers with a can opener
>eat an apple top to bottom
>fuckin muffins

Retarded.

>how to hotwire a car

I can show you how to hotwire a car pre-1980's. After that it becomes a little more difficult as everything got more sophisticated. Modern cars are basically out of the question without expert level electronics and a huge length of time with the car.

Anarchists cookbook is dumb as shit. It's just a book for edgy faggots.

There are entire books dedicated to "life hacks" because people are lazy and stupid. Something like rolling a bag of chips up from the bottom for easier access to chips isn't exactly life changing...

TV / Ring
Wat?
>>
>>934380
Yah, it depends on a wireless switch system that I've never heard of though. Supposedly widely available but the book was printed in 2003. I'll snap a picture of a couple of the pages if you want. Personally, most of the book is trivial; the most use I got from it was how to make plastic from milk.

Lol ok

Yah, turns out that it's basically glue a magnet to a plastic ring, then use the X10 wireless switch module and plug the TV in to it, then use the magnet to activate the wireless switch.

Commencing image dump of a couple of the other projects though.

Nope. It depends on a normally open push button switch that can be closed with a rare earth magnet.
