16 People Who Won The “Trust Me, I’m An Engineer” Award

You don’t need a PhD in engineering to fix simple, everyday kinda things! Right? You can just wing it! After all, as long as whatever it was that didn’t function properly, works after you’ve tinkered with it, who cares whether it still looks as pretty as before? If it looks stupid, but it works, it ain’t stupid! That’s what people say, and people are never wrong! Especially if it’s them internet people – they are definitely always right.

Back to those genius engineers now. Their fixes may be improvised, they probably work (to some extent at least), but one thing is for sure: they always look beyond silly. So here you go, take a look at these 16 people who came up with the most ridiculous ways to repair broken stuff you could ever imagine, courtesy of Diply.
