but I always applaud this one http://twistedsifter.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/life-hacks-how-to-make-your-life-easier-6.jpg
i used to do the paper cd one when i was younger. the egg one looks good and the only one that's be any use, but it's highly dubious
Number 42's very OCD.
Go fuck yourself
the wick of which was out of reach of a conventional lighter. Worked an absolute treat.
(It was bucatini actually but, y'know)
(1/4 of a cup = 4 tablespoons)
but I can't say I've really encountered the vast majority of 'problems' these people seem to have
'carry a square of cardboard in a ziploc bag around with you to protect small important documents like cheques from rain and prevent them creasing'. Jesus christ.
i've always just taped a paper bag underneath the point of drilling, that's far easier
but also probably not. you've got:
- find post-it notes, fold post-it notes, attach post-it notes to wall underneath each prospective hole, drill hole, delicately shepherd contents of post-it notes to bin, feel proud about yourself.
- drill hole, find dustpan(it's under the sink), sweep up.
& all the surfaces underneath?
the folding & attaching post it to a wall is really hard to do
delicatly shepherd to bin? nah, drill hole, tip postit contents into bag
it's much easier
Those aren't paperclips.
The others haven't impacted on my life yet.
Far too thick.
buttermilk pancakes I'd imagine.
also, they are WAYYYYYYYYY better. x
Is drinking on beaches illegal in the US?
hence the classic hobo drinking a bottle out of a brown bag cliche.
Someone we know from the states came to visit and was guzzling down beer at 10am walking down the high street singing the praises of how great it was to be able to and no-one judged you.
Everyone was judging him, but they were too British about it and he was too American to notice.
Def illegal in Austin. First hand experience of this.
and in another one it says "spray cooking oil"
feeling a bit uneasy about this
will do a lot of those, especially the one with the extension cord
but I reckon the flex in the rubber band could spray paint everywhere, or even snap if you did it too vigorously or with too much paint on the brush, plus you wouldn't be able to put a lid back on, plus getting it off would be a pain in the arse. Better off just using the edge of the can and resting the pot on some newspaper like people have been doing since paint has been available in cans.
they probably put that in there without trying it out
I reckon it's a definite case of 'Didn't think it through'
Hold the rubber band on the side of the can, cut it. As I said - job done.
but it all seems a lot more complicated than just using the side of the can to scrape off the excess paint which has no downsides that I can think of. Better than fannying around snipping off and disposing of painty rubber bands, especially if you are doing a huge room and take loads of breaks where you need to put the lid on.
imagine seeing someone do that. you'd just be like, im alright for cake thanks, pretty full.
But sadly, I think that I will not have the time to implement most of them. Instead, I will carry on my shamblic disorganised life.
i mean the ideas are ingenious but most of them are utterly useless. like the mcdonalds ketchup thing, do you actually need more ketchup? and even if you do, just fill two cups.
just basically solutions to problems that don't exist.
using a CDR tower thing. But really I just use tinfoil, it does the job fine. Bagels are pretty hardy. When done I dispose of the foil, I don't have to cart a plastic tub around all day and wash it up before my next bagel.
So many things are solutions to problems that don't exist. Reading that list and posting about it probably cost me more time than doing any of those would save.
when you are finished in the shower, spend a bit of time swishing the water off your body with your hands. this saves the bath mat from getting soaked
due to sitting around all day with excess moisture
Then get laundered.
I bet your towels stink because you don't wash them...
before adulthood, without the aid of the internet
the amount of people that leave 2 massive wet footprints on bathmats day in day out would suggest that this isnt the case
Is to absorb the wetness when you get out of the bath or shower.
Do you all stand there shaking like a dog until you are dry?
Hardly took Einstein to post it on the internet.
Also - Isn't that kind of the *point* of bath mats?
why dont the pair o yers go rut in a filthy pile of sopping wet bathmats and leave my helfpul suggestions aloneeeeeee
hairy legs need rinsing out.
says that this knowledge is the most valuable thing that he took from his first marriage
either my suggestion is a good one or Marc Maron is wicked with put downs of his first wife. Good either way.
