Sometimes you’re in a hurry to fix a situation and in the intermediate time frame, the best you can do is a quick and easy pseudo-fix. Of course, sometimes your best efforts just aren’t good enough or they’re downright dangerous. And other times, people are just lazy and come up with bone-headed ways to try to address real problems.

These 12 hazardous solutions will have you wondering what people were thinking in the first place and how many brain cells they used on their quick fix.

1. Who needs one of those fancy red extinguishers?

The beauty of this device is that it’s easy to refill. And you can drink from it too! Why does anyone use normal fire extinguishers?

2. Was this builder a pirate in a past life?

That or they were inspired by the whole, “walk the plank,” spirit. They can probably also make amazing card towers.

3. Prevention is better than cure

Why have an emergency when you can just not have an emergency? This is some of the best self-help advice out there. Whoever made this sign should write a motivational book.

4. They complained that there was no heating on the worksite

It’s ok, the flame was quite far from the wooden studs. You just have to hope that it doesn’t roll off the ladder. Because that floor is also made of wood.

5. Early warning system

Seeing that cone will be so reassuring after you’ve broken your leg. Maybe the manager meant that they should put the cone outside of the hole?

6. Perilous placement

Visit this restaurant before it burns down! At least they had the foresight to put a towel under the tank. That made all the difference…

7. It’s as good as new

If you look closely, you’ll be able to see that part of the column is made of wood. Thanks to this restoration, the roof that the column’s holding up should stay in place for…well, a couple of days?

8. Stairway to heaven

On the plus side, that fish can be sold at a discount! Who doesn’t love squished fish heads?!

And the shoe dirt will give it extra flavor. Yum!

10. The power of knowledge

Imagine if one of them was super valuable. As in, it was a priceless first edition. You’d have to risk collapse to get it out!

11. When you get annoyed at all the people honking

Fun fact: this truck got pulled over almost immediately and the driver lost their license. It probably took longer to make and mount this sign than it would have to secure the truck’s content.

12. I am useless

If only there was a place that we could put things that don’t work. Just think, we could employ people to take these things away. Perhaps we could even reuse parts of these broken things in non-broken things?
