Playing with my “toys” always involved, in a way or another, gutting the toy. This has led to the disassembly (in most cases followed by assembly), repairing and modifying/improving a vast majority of my belongings. Also, tampering with it always felt better than reading the manual.
What is a hack?
IMO a hack is anything done to modify/improve/repair/fit something in a way that wasn’t meant to be done/is not the conventional way to be done.
Why hack stuff?
- Because it’s fun
- Because it’s cool
- Because fuck “The Man”- all this force fed extreme consumerism of disposable, planned obsolescence, fashion, is plain sickening, wasteful, and polluting
- Because it makes the brain work, thus making you smarter
- Because sometimes it’s cheaper than the alternative
