Life Hacks

This is a neat infographic with some useful tips on making your life easier and more organized.

A few notes,

Domestic Hacks:

1. I don't reverse the hangers. Instead I always put clean clothes on the left and choose clothes to wear from the right. The shirts on the far right at the end of the season are sent to goodwill.

3. The movie Vengeance demonstrates this with a thin cord over the top of the door instead of a rubber band. This is why hotels use the solid metal hoops instead of the chains. Of course, a kid's suction cup arrow will defeat those.

4. Eating a banana 'upside down' is not all that great. There is a black nub on that side you don't want to eat, and that nub also serves to keep the banana in the peel for the last bite. If you follow their advice you end up eating the nub and the banana falls out of peel towards the end.

Work/Productivity Hacks:

1. This is awesome. Basically a weeks vacation in the company's bathroom. What more could you want? Make sure you save the world with that time.

3. Beer judges have to go to school where they are asked to drink beer that has been deliberately damaged for their BJCP certification. You are then tested on identifying how the beer was damaged. i.e. improper storage, hot fermentation, left over sugars etc. (Yes, there are floaties)

Health/Body Hacks:

2. This is something I really want to try. I hear staying awake for 24 hours will also reset your clock.

4. Super, but have you ever tried to open a coconut? It's next to impossible without a machete.

6. Do people over the age of 23 get brain freezes? (I would say 16, but college creates a lot of dumb opportunities.)

7. This never works for me.

8. Putting new pillow cases on and rotating towels sounds like a lot of work, but if it is effective, then it'll be worth it.

Miscellaneous Hacks:

1. This was discovered by Earl in the Best Buy parking lot in the 90's. He could unlock his car from forever away.

REPRESENT! Though to be fair, I learned it from many installers before me.

I still get brain freeze though.
