Inmates Ingenuity – Weird Stuff Indeed
These pictures are part of a collection that shows how creative people can be, especially if you lock them up for a few years and give them absolutely nothing to do. By far, the most impressive pair of the bunch is the pistol and the shotgun.
All of these “tools” were made with materials that you can find somewhere around your cell. We can only imagine the look on the face of the person who made the pistol when he saw his rival pulling up a shotgun in response to his threats.
When they are not making their own DIY weapons, inmates enjoy creating cookware and even materials for woodworking, like this primitive saw. And, of course, we can’t not talk about the razor blade whip, which was most likely inspired by the Saw movie franchise.
In the end, it’s been a productive 20 years for these inmates and if they finally get out of jail, I’m sure they will be able to find jobs as inventors or engineers.
