The Wonderful World Of Prison Inventions

image credit

Plato once said that necessity is the mother of all inventions. Prison is one of the few places where very few common wants and needs are fulfilled; resources are incredibly limited and ardently regulated. Prisoners, who are not content to only posses what 'the man' tells them they can have, are forced to use their critical thinking skills.

Situations in prison sometimes call for something a little more intimidating than a whittled down toothbrush shiv, or a sharpened spoon.
The Wonderful World of Prison Inventions is a tribute to those not satisfied with the standard prison accommodations.
