Beer-Fi


 

Beer can fix everything. There’s no game this weekend so if you’re working on an important paper this weekend and your wifi goes out.. don’t run to the library or call and yell at your internet provider.. just try this simple trick that’s been shown to increase signal strength by at least 2 – 4 bars.. we can all drink to that.

Grab some scissors, a utility knife, some adhesive putty and an empty beer can. Keep in mind you’re handling weapons here.. so if ya feel like drinking more.. well, don’t kid yourself, the router only needs the one.

 

 

 

 

 

First wash out the empty beer can, unless of course said beer is a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon. If it is, promptly discard and go drink a better beer. Seriously.

Once the can has dried..  remove it’s pull tab.

Only perform this next step if you have not been drinking. Using the utility knife, saw off the bottom of the can. Chances are your can will not have a red dotted line as illustrated below and, if you see one, put down the knife…and step away from the beer.

You’ll notice in the above step that the can’s pull tab has returned.. but don’t get too confused, it shouldn’t be. And if it is, maybe you were too drunk to remove it in the first place, in which case you should probably stop this project.

It’s the home stretch! You just need to attach your molded beer can to the wifi router.. and you now have beer-fi.

Hopefully you now have both internet and the remainder of a tasty 6 pack. Which beer would/did you use?
