Geek DIY Engineering


Problem: A hard freeze is upon the land, requiring your parents to drip the pipes. You have extremely sensitive hearing, and the plonk … plonk … plonk of the drip from the shower in the next-door bathroom is keeping you awake.

Solution: Construct a baffle that deflects the drip to the shower wall, where the water noiselessly drains into the tub.

Sometimes, it is a hell of a lot of fun to share quarters with a 14-year-old geek.
