You might never achieve Bruce Wayne’s level of wealth, fancy weaponry, fighting ability, or dashing good looks, but you apparently can make yourself some semi-functional bat wings with PVC piping, a heat gun, nuts and bolts, stretchy black fabric, Velcro straps, and hot glue. That’s what YouTuber The Q did in what looks like a project that was thought up while it was happening. He cuts and bends the PVC, assembles the pieces, and then attaches the fabric to make articulating wings that expand and move with his arms. Clearly not suited for aerial leaps or gliding, at least he’s about 75% towards one seriously bitchin’ Halloween costume.

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
