We all know that if our car battery suddenly died we would end up having to have someone come out to give us a jump to get it started again. It’s a very common fix to a problem that’s more of a pain in the a** than anything else, but it turns out that depending on the type of car you own, all you may need to get that car running again on your own is a jack and some rope! Thanks to the YouTube channel Shake the Future one bright young man shows you exactly how to start a car using a jack to lift up the proper corner so you can use the rope to get the engine started. Once that’s good to go you can drive it anywhere, including to a shop for a replacement battery…



While this certainly won’t work on every car out there the fact that someone was smart enough to come up with a solution as odd as this. It’s incredible to think that using just a length of rope you can get thousands of pounds of steel back up and running, but hey, at least he knows he’ll never have to wait on a jump for that car ever again!
