The 8 pin male dual row headers on some of the small peripheral boards (for example NRF24L01 and ESP8266 boards) are not suited for a breadboard - unless you are trying to short the pins out. A simple hack is to cut female pin headers, stick them together with hot glue, and bend the pins with needle-nose pliers. The photo above is self-explanatory, I think. A simple hack, but it works.
