These People Flipped Their Crappy Situations Right On Their Heads

When life doesn't go your way, you can either complain or you can do something about it. These people are great examples of making the best of a bad situation and the results are awesome.

situations

If there are two more miserable words in our language than "bankruptcy" and "divorce" we don't know what they are. We also know that when we hear them, we could use a drink -- this clever liquor store owner knew it too. It's almost as great an idea as the one in our next image.

Confusing The Issue

situations

Cracking a smartphone screen is a first-world problem, but it's still painful and it's still expensive. Instead of buying a new phone, sometimes it's better to find a screensaver that makes the most of the cracked screen. Like this meme-tastic one. Now, turn to the following item on our list and see another excellent concept.

A Novel Idea For Pain Management

situations

We assume that this ingenious idea sprang from the fact that it's hard to hold your pint when you're walking on crutches. A drink is always nice to have but not at the expense of falling over, so this was the perfect compromise. Guinness all the time. And when he's finished he can use our next idea to dispose of the waste.

The Garbage Can Of Doom

situations

If someone carelessly discards a lit cigarette and melts a hole in the side of your garbage can, don't throw it away. Simply take a pen and make the hole into a face. Then start using plastic can liners to stop the garbage can from leaking. If you like this, you're going to love the bite from the next one!

Lost An Arm, Gained A Shark

situations

This gentleman decided that while losing an arm was a definite downer, there was potential to make art from the process. So he went with the angry shark tattoo over his shoulder, and it is the scariest clever thing that we've ever seen. Quick! Move to the next slide for something funnier.

The Most Relaxing Toilet Ever

situations

When somebody smashes the toilet lid, you have two options. Option 1: Buy a new lid. Option 2: Get creative and take something from around the house to make a new one yourself. We imagine this isn't very hygienic, but that it was very comfortable when first installed. Now let's take a look at a much larger-scale version of making the best of a bad situation.

Jollying Up The Evils Of Colonization

situations

It's hard to imagine that any indigenous people would welcome angry colonists from another country with open arms. However, it appears that the folks at British India are willing to forgive and forget, as long as they can sell "nice outfits" on the back of it. We finish up with something much cheerier in the next slide.

The Game Of Wheelchair Thrones

situations

You can't help being an amputee, but you can help what you make of your life as an amputee. This guy took his inspiration from Tyrion Lannister and made himself an awesome wheelchair decoration based on the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones. That is a truly awesome sight.
