…Kim Zolciak posed topless for NO H8?

I’m not sure when celebrities decided that supporting their favorite cause meant taking their top off, but Kim Zolciak from the TV show Real Housewives of Atlanta has taken a page from PETA’s playbook for the NO H8 Campaign (an effort to legalize gay marriage) by posing with little more than duct tape to cover her bits and pieces:

…It’s TGI Friday: Skating and snowboarding sail?

Skateboard And Snowboard Sail

With some tarp, a few feet of duct tape, clear plastic material from grandma, fiberglass shock chorded poles, and two feet of plastic tubing, you can build your very own hand held skating and snowboarding sail that folds up when you’re done using it for easy transportation.

Self propulsion is now officially out of style.

What would MacGyver do with a paper towel tube, some duct tape, a ping-pong ball, hairspray, and a barbecue lighter? Why, build a ping-pong ball gun of course.

…Gliding can be dangerous?

Combat Glider

It might take millions of dollars and military backing to get into a real dogfight, but with a few dollars and some DIY plane building skills, you can be combat gliding in no time. Combat gliders are scrapped together planes with nine-foot wingspans that use cliff updrafts to stay in the air. They have “no motors, no self-power, and only two simple controls: one flap on each wing. They are made of bamboo sticks, plastic bottle noses, foam board wings and duct tape”. Their scrappy nature makes them virtually indestructible, but you need that kind of dependability when the goal of the hobby is to ram the other planes out of the sky.
