How many times have we used the term ‘jury-rigged’ as we attempt some task or other? I think we all understand the context and appreciate it has come to mean ‘something extremely temporary’ but where does the term come from? It seems to have originated in the nautical world sometime in the

15th century. In the English of the time, it referred to a temporary sail and has evolved into general use.
