Step 1. Get two medium size rocks and a length of 30 lb test fishing line.
Step 2. Tie one rock to each end of the fishing line.
Step 3. Determine a strong branch on a tree in your yard.
Step 4. Throw one end of the fishing line attached to one of the rocks over the pre-determined branch, allowing the other end attached to the other rock to function as a counter weight.
Step 5. Untie the rocks from each end of the fishing line, and tie the two free ends of the fishing line together. Adjust the height so that the item in the next step can easily be hung from the line.
Step 6. Fill the already purchased 1/2 price bird feeder with seed and hang from the dangling line.
Step 7. Admire your handiwork and praise yourself for inheriting such genes of ingenuity.
Step 8. Wait twenty minutes and enjoy the birds feasting from your feeder, the squirrels eating the crumbs falling below, the cat chasing the squirrels, and the dog barking at everything.
Step 9. Notice that you are no longer bored.
