There are a lot of inventions out there that fall somewhere between genius and idiotic. After all, it’s not like an inventor never mistakenly made one thing while trying to create another.

Still, that middle ground between engineer and moron is definitely an entertaining one!

Never before has that been as obvious as after you see some of these, uh, geniuses. When you see their “inventions,” you might be impressed… or maybe just terrified.

Sure, most of these have a 53% chance of killing you (I may have fudged the math a bit) but they’re also pretty cool. You have to admire people who think outside the box!

Share these “genius” hacks with your friends. Just make sure they don’t get any ideas!
