Masters of Transport

Friend at work passed this on to me and thought would share. I think it is amazing to see how people problem solve.

The pictures speak for themselves.

those pictures appear to me to exemplify the lengths people will go to avoid solving problems.

how so?

when you have less you do what you can with what you have.

Making do with what you have and solving problems aren't necessarily the same thing. For example, in the first picture there is the problem of a safety hazard caused by missing planks. instead of finding a way to fix the problem, they are simply ignoring it and using the bridge in its dangerous state.

And I'm sure there's a way to transport a couple of chairs on a motorbike without both restricting your movement and obstructing your vision. It might take some rope or other device, but still the opportunity is there.

maybe not exactly the same thing but they do play into the equation. When solving a problem you have to access what you have. Maybe we just don't agree on how to define problem solving and that is fine. I appreciate your views.

They are using the bridge in the dangerous state, but am sure it was safer or better route than the other ways of getting from one point to another. Also to us our thoughts are that this is a "dangerous state" but to them it might be something daily so it is less, it is all in context.

am sure there are 101 ways to move chairs, "maybe some rope" but without rope then what, hmm maybe you find something like rope to solve that but what if tried that and then still came to dead end so then figured just going down the block this would be the fastest best method, I am adding more to the picture than is there but I was not there so am not aware of all the variables, just looking at them and trying to understand. I personally think the chair on the head is not obstructing viewing, seems to me he could see anything around him, am sure if study was done riding with chair over your head is much safer than driving and talking on the phone.

thanks for posting again
