12 Creative Ways To Recycle Old Technology

Technology has become a large part of everyone’s lives, but with new technological breakthroughs happening almost everyday, the amount of techno-junk in our homes keeps piling up. Here are some creative ways to recycle some of your outdated devices.

 

1. With a little bit of tinkering you can turn any old appliance into a robot slave that can clean, cook, and vaporize intruders.

2. Beepers, pagers, and palm pilots are just catching on in Kyrgyzstan. You can sell them on eBay for a small fortune.

3. Pretty much any piece of old tech can be used to build a bomb. Also you’re now on a watch list just for reading that last sentence.

4. Store all your movies digitally so you can make a sexy bikini from your DVDs.

5. If you live in the US, you can donate your old smartphones, computers, tablets, and appliances to Immigration Services where they will be used as material for Trump’s border wall.

6. Throw your old cell phone into the ocean. All the creatures of the sea are delighted when humans bestow them with unwanted trash.

7. All your old cassettes can be used as tinder after we bomb ourselves back to the stone ages.

8. A broken microwave can easily be converted into a heat-ray that you can use to take over a city.

9. You can use that old VCR of yours to store bread.

10. You can use that broken toaster of yours to store VHS tapes.

11. Use outdated computer parts to construct your first girlfriend you nerd.

12. Indiana Jones got in right; old, unused refrigerators can be repurposed as nuclear bomb shelters. Keep that in mind in 2018.

12 Ways To Extend Your Phone’s Battery Life

The world of technology brings as many pains as it does pleasures. We all have experience being right in the middle of a text or an episode of a show or an important call telling us where to leave the ransom money when our phone shuts down from low battery, shutting down our lives as well. Check out these 12 tips on expanding the power of your phone’s battery to make sure your tech-enhanced life doesn’t stop.

 

1. The human body creates enough energy in one hour to power your phone for a lifetime. Remove one of your eyes so that you can stick a USB charger into your open eye socket.

2. Play mobile games while sitting on the toilet instead of everywhere all the time constantly.

3. Microwaving your phone for six minutes can give it enough energy for six hours.

4. Send your phone up into space and let it absorb the sun’s radiation. Your phone will charge fully as well as be imbued with super powers.

5. A virus on your mobile phone might always be running in the background, which drains battery life. To combat this, download a security program that will always be running in the background to check for viruses.

6. Replace your phone battery with a car battery.

7. Bury a human bone, a crow’s feather, and a picture of Robert Johnson at the center of a crossroads. Wait there until midnight and a demon will appear. You can sell the demon your phone’s soul in exchange for unlimited battery life.

8. Turn your brightness all the way down and just guess at what you’re typing.

9. Surgically implant an electric eel’s organs into your body so that you can produce your own electricity. Your phone will charge while you’re holding it.

10. Keep your phone in a freezer when you’re not using it. Your battery level will freeze at whatever percentage it was when you put it in.

11. Use your home computer to watch porn instead of watching it on your phone in the subway at full volume.

12. Free yourself from the shackles of a technologically intrusive society by casting your phone into the sea. The saltwater will preserve your phone’s battery life and you’ll get to live off the grid.

Tech-Illiterate Mother Insists Computers a Passing Fad

Jeanne Harlow of Cattletuck, Nebraska, accounts her refusal to own and learn how to operate a computer on her belief that digital technology is just a trend.

“Yeah, yeah, I’ve heard it all before,” said Harlow, “but you just watch. All this ‘technology’ and ‘internet connections’ will be gone by the end of the year.”

Harlow is a mother of six and lives in a predominately rural community that only just got dial-up internet last month. Many people in her community have since welcomed the town’s passage into the low-speed internet superhighway, but Harlow simply isn’t buying it.

“They said the same thing with the automobile and look what happened with that? The car came out and replaced it,” Harlow continued. “That’s why it’ll never stick, people will just get fed up with what they don’t understand until something new comes out and they’ll throw it away. It’s the same with computers and cell phones.”

Harlow’s children are upset with their mother for forbidding technology in their home. One of her daughters created a fake cell phone out of cardboard and a shard of broken glass just to fit in with the other children at her school.

“My family got along fine without all this technological crap,” said Harlow. “For generations we survived without these iPhones, video-whats-its and toilet paper. We’ll get along just fine for generations more.”
