How to plug the ESP8266-01 module to a breadboard

One of the most annoying problems of the ESP8266-01 module is that it is not possible to plug it into a breadboard for fast prototyping.
Today I was discussing with another Arduino fan and we were looking at existing solutions to this common problem. All the existing solutions were complex to implement or are costing more than the ESP module itself.
I ended up with a smart and free solution with no additional hardware required.

The solution is easy and requires only a small screwdriver to remove the plastic spacers and pliers to bend the ESP's pins.
Pictures are more clear than words in this case.
