Stool_19.jpg

 

To many of you, the picture above is simply a stool. This strict interpretation of life is the problem with this world. We are in need people that look at things in unique ways. When we accept only the strict interpretation of an object's purpose, we limit our minds. This idea comes out of Buddhism, but is very applicable in real life. I thought it would be a good way to exercise our brains while having fun. 

 

The rules are simple:

 

Respond with an alternative use for a stool.

Keep an open mind and be as creative as you wish

As long as you can make the connection in your post, there is no wrong answer

Once we run out of possibilities, I will post a new object to work with

 

Ex: The stool can be a musical instrument (Beating on it), or a weapon (hitting somebody with it)

Upside down it could be used as a terrace in a garden. Tying off rosebushes and tomato plants, other vines etc. to make them grow up instead of on the ground.

I see before me a portable amphibious transportation vehicle; most likely the prototype of a similar model recently tested during a live exercise.
