* Tools and machines can be astonishingly simple. In fact, you can get quite a bit done with a bit of brute strength and one of the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_machine Simple Machines]]: The Lever, Wheel and Axle, Pulley, Inclined Plane, Wedge, and Screw. For everything else, you have [[DuctTapeForEverything Duct Tape]] and [[PercussiveMaintenance a hammer.]] Or, if you lost your hammer, you have a rock.

** [[UnrealisticBlackHole Dark Hole]]. It clears the field of monsters, and often is the best card for removing an opponents best monster from the field. Also its equivalent for spell and trap cards, Heavy Storm. Harpy's Feather Duster can do the same, except it's a trap card[[note]]Must be set and then activated on the next turn[[/note]].

** The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scout_rifle Scout rifle]] concept originally conceived by Jeff Cooper, and later put into production by many rifle makers, strives for simplicity and versatility. Basically, it's a bolt-action rifle chambered in .308 Winchester (one of the most common big game calibers and a prevalent military caliber as 7.62mm NATO) that weighs less than 3 kilos, is less than 1 meter in length, is usable with simple optics or iron sights and a simple sling, and will allow a competent shooter to take any animal up to about 450 kilos, or a human target, at at least 450 meters using the iron sights.

** It should be noted that Charizard only foreshadows Blastoise in the minds of people who never played in early tournaments (in which Blastoise-based "rain dance" decks were one of only two main viable archetypes).

** The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glock Glock pistol]], in its many models, has been fairly referred to as the "AK-47 of pistols," with operation as simple as is possible for a semiautomatic pistol and ruggedness and reliability that are legendary. The soundness of the simple design can be attested to by the facts that it has barely changed since it was first laid down in 1982, 24 different models in seven different calibers have all been successfully produced around it, and how often it's been imitated by competitors. It's hated passionately by some, who regard its blocky, utilitarian lines as ugly; its long, heavy trigger and loose tolerances as compromises to accuracy; and its lack of manual safeties and need to be dry-fired before disassembly as dangerous. That still hasn't prevented it from being the most influential handgun design since the Browning Hi-Power, having popularized once-radical but now-common features like polymer construction, striker firing, and double-action-only triggers; and it's likely the most commonly issued semiautomatic pistol in the world as of the 21st century.

* Books, and in fact any writing of any kind. Provided that the individual in question was literate and took the time to write, you could hear the words of heroes, generals, and ''kings'' who died centuries before you were born. You can learn skills that no one else in your area knows how to do, just by visiting your local library. You can, with the right text, learn anything from the scientific theories of Thomas Edison to the sword fighting strategies of Miyamoto Musashi! Take a look, it's in a book!

* Barbecue. The first form of cooking ever invented it's simply meat cooked over fire. It can be changed up with different kinds of meat seasoned with different sauces and spices to create a near endless variety of flavors. Some scientists even believe that the extra protein from cooking meat led to more developed brains. Millions of years later, it's still a favorite the world over with many restaurants devoted entirely to making different kinds of barbecue.

* Coffee. At its basics, it's just ground coffee beans and water, with several kinds of preparations available: drip, French press, and the DifficultButAwesome pour-over, for instance. Yet it's the most consumed source of caffiene in the world, with several ways to spruce up the everyday cup of joe: sugar, milk, creamer, etc. It's diet-friendly too: black coffee packs only about five calories per cup.
