Science!

The problem: big fancy hdtv with no over-the-air signal with no antenna nearby and the stores are already closed.

The solution: use a coaxial cable, some chicken wire, a bit of aluminum foil, and a giant steel pot to fashion an antenna

Poor Man antenna

this surprisingly worked really well – at first the chicken wire sort of did the job, but the addition of the giant steel pot made the antenna contraption work as well as an antenna you’d buy at the store. so when an episode of The Bachelor (sabrina…) is airing and you must see it, get some wire and a giant steel pot and you’ll be watching horrible reality tv in no time!
