What do you do when you need to paint tall objects but are too short? The non-engineers among us would probably look for a stepladder. Others would maybe think about lying the object flat to paint it from top to bottom and flip it over later.
An engineer, however, will use whatever resources they have at their disposal to ensure they get the job done on time. This guy duct-taped blocks of wood to his boots to boost him up by several inches. That way, he doesn’t have to use a stepladder like the rest of us short non-engineers.
