Awesome to see someone on Adam Savage's stature proactively work to destigmatize hearing loss. Way too many people out there resist getting the help they need because of the dang negative stereotype.

Landlord Threatens Court so Tenant Takes Him to Court

What a splendid little example of calling someone's bluff. This landlord was completely unhelpful and thought their threat would let them illegally keep their tenant's security deposit. After getting caught lying in court, this tenant had their ex-landlord eating their stupid words. People sometimes win against their landlords, like this guy who got contractual revenge on his landlord or this person who staged a coup d'etat on their terrible landlord.

Dry Ice Loophole Makes Mockery of Robotics Competition

There's no solution more compelling than those lazy "it's not stupid if it works" moments, even if they're technically against the rules. A low budget or DIY solution might make a judge mad, but you can't say that your solution wasn't effective. For another story of a stroke of lazy genius, here's a guy who needed a permit to build a garage so he just bought a van.

Dude Needs Permit to Build Garage, Just Buys A Van

When solving a problem, it's important to think outside the bun. This homeowner found that if he wanted to build a garage, it would cost extra. So what did he do? He found a more mobile garage. For another intriguing loophole, here's a bold HOA fighting strategy in the form of a radio tower threat.

Student Wins Art Contest to Spite Rude Art Teacher

Sometimes teachers misjudge their students, like this teacher who underestimated their students during a social experiment. Other times, the powers that be can be mistaken and disrespectful, like this staff who made a student wait to report a fire. In this case, it was an art teacher who was soundly put in their place after handing down some harsh criticism. Art is subjective, anyway.

County Mower Shreds Dad's Shrubs, Dad Revenges With Rebar
