I, myself, am someone who panics easily and when I do, my brain simply stops. So, I’m sad to announce that in times of need, you can’t really count on me. Well, you can always count on me for emotional support, but when you need someone to help you restart the engine of a truck, I don’t think you could make use of my shoulder to lean on. You know what I’m saying? That’s why I have always admired people who have tricks and solutions up their sleeve at all times. It’s like they can never be unprepared for anything.
Well, this article is proof that the creativity of people has really peaked. Follow me and see for yourself.
