    are you familiar with the term "shim" and presuming you are, what is the most creative use of one you've ever employed?

    when we were kids, i went fishing with my grandpa and cousin, and we were carrying a cooler through the woods when we banged it against a tree and the drain stop on the cooler fell off. my grandpa sprung into action and ripped a branch off a tree and pulled out his pocket knife and carved it into shape so it was more or less watertight against the cooler, took about 2 minutes and we were back in action, no ice water leakage for the cooler that trip, his beers, our sodas, and later our fish stayed icy cold.

    Team Amazon here. No real reason. With no commute (short one in the before times), work does not lend itself to listening to as much new music as I'd like, two kids, it fits our needs and don't take time to explore other options.

    I always thought of shims as those slim wedges of wood that you would use to do things like level wobbly woodwork or hold things in place

    LOL. I still haven't recovered from my little workout accident I texted you about a few weeks back.

    I think they are but also my grandfather used the term to just mean anything you fabricated to solve a tricky problem of construction or any piece of scrappy handiwork

    Our grandchildren telling stories about how when they were with grandpa, and a problem came up, he was able to immediately find something called a "youtube video" that told him how to fix it.

    never heard it used as a catch-all term outside of these guys, but makes sense

    i remember him dissembling a beer can with a pocket knife and using the rolled up aluminum into a cone and funneling oil/gas mix into his mower

    he had some device he made out of PVC that had a nozzle to hook up to the hose he used to clean his gutters that was retractable, so he never got on a ladder

    the bane of his existence was squirrels on his porch birdfeeders, so he was always trying to devise a squirrel proof birdfeeder. he'd put grease on the poles, spikes underneath the feeders, etc.

    maybe these are what people today would just call DIY, but he tended to call them all shims

    I call all that stuff jury-rigging.
