15+ People Just Making It Up As They Go

Improvisation is an underrated skill. It makes for some interesting television at times, true, but for the most part, it's hard to see and even more difficult to appreciate.

Looks like a strong, sturdy swing set.

Not a person, but this plant is sure making it up as it goes.

There's no way a lamp post is an ideal spot for a plant to take root, but this one appears to have done so and is flourishing. Doubt that can last forever though.

These plants stand a much better chance thanks to a little creativity.

Points to this driver, because I wouldn't have thought to put a bar tap handle on my shifter.

I don't know if it was otherwise broken, or if it makes shifting any easier, but it sure is different. Probably makes the car a bit easier to spot in a parking lot, if nothing else.

So you get "License Plate" for your license plate. I can just see someone standing there, going down a list of things that have already been chosen, like usernames, and finally settling on this for the sake of having something.

The illusion is only appropriate.
