number 10 doesnt work. all the paper does is float around the fireplace while it`s burning up.

I already knew the one about maling your windows and mirrors shine

but its more effective if you start with a dry newspaper and let it dampen as you wipe off the water you spray onto the glass

some of those were very useful though!

No, Osprey, that`s essentially what those store-bought fireplace logs are. On the other hand, they don`t make your whole house smell like burning newspaper, so....

10. Make your own fireplace logs.

Roll newspapers up tightly in shape of logs.

Are you kidding?

177. How to keep cauliflower white.

Pour a little milk in the water when boiling cauliflower.

Yes, I suppose it makes them white, but it also makes them taste like milk.

66. How to clean your ties.

Put tie in jar with some carbon tetrachloride, shake, take out and let dry

Uh, well, CCl4 has basically been banned. It`s VERY toxic

Not something I would want on my ties.

"How to stop cabbage odors: place a couple of walnuts in the pot while cooking the cabbage."

...Er, no, actually, the way to stop cabbage odors is NOT TO COOK FRIGGIN CABBAGE.

I thought some of those were really useful, but others were just obvious like "what vegetable will improve eyesight-carrots" I never would have guessed. Also, it was pretty hard to focus on the page long enough to read all 200. It took me forever. Short attention span I suppose

I couldn`t tell if this was a joke or serious. I thought this was pretty funny:

69. What to do if you oversalt food.

Drop a potato or two into it. Absorbs the oversalt.

HJ i dont think a one year old could pull of a piece of electrical tape if it put on there well enough, let alone duct tape. and how would a person or any age be able to get 1/4" diameter fingers into a 1/16" wide outlet or a 1/8" ground outlet?
