20. Hold down the corners of your map on the hood of the car while you curse, scratch your head, kick the car tire, and wonder where you are.

21. Intruder alert. Place stacked books (topped with something that makes a shattering/clattering sound when it smashes to the floor) strategically in front of a door.

22. Fallout Shelter

24 inches of books equals the required eight inches of protective steel for a fallout shelter... [and] will block out about 90% of the gamma radiation from a radioactive bomb.

Note: I have not tried this. Your results may vary.

You find the strangest stuff. At some point you're going to have to tell us how you do it.

24. Purse - Remove the interior pages of one hardbound book. Insert fabric lining, attach handles, and add button closure.

Well here is one of them:

This is the only one I could find. I am scared of what I would get if I typed Boy Scouts in Bondage in a search engine.

Well, I'm not scared.

The first result is a Naval History website, and the the second seemingly a listing of albums by The Pogues for some reason.

Er, what search engine did you use? Most of the hits I got searching for "Scouts in Bondage" are about Michael Bell's Scouts in Bondage, a collection of book covers of similar theme to those Madam Broshkina posted in the first place (including, it seems, the original Scouts in Bondage).
