Life Hack from Gerry.

When your other half gives you the silent treatment, you want to take a moment to really piss them off. If you don`t, they`ll get over it and fight until 3 a.m. but if you really piss them off they`ll stay quite all night so you can watch TV in peace, not counting the occational slammed door.

What I usually do is, just as the silent treatment starts, I say "Good, at least I`ll get some peace and quiet now!". NOW he`s totally pissed and won`t speak to me until tomorrow. And I get a good nights rest.

Eh, idk if I`d call all these hacks, but they`re certainly interesting ideas.

As to Gerry, what do you mean so what? If you`re, ya know, say, 50-59, maybe going bald is normal and ok. On the other hand, it`s sad seeing freaking 20-30 year olds having significant balding. Fortunately my family doesn`t have much of an issue with balding, but I sure as hell don`t blame people suffering from premature balding for not taking it lying down.

And to Jclv: 1) yeah, or you could do what they say and not have to worry about it; 2)part of it is supposed to be that the type of music corresponds and helps you get ready; 3)If it`s a house maybe you have that thing where people have more than one door? Amazing, I know. Also, maybe it isn`t your house...; 4) unless you`re a fan of less ripe, tougher skinned bananas and want to avoid strings; 7) That`s stupid. No it wouldn`t; sch3) You have a better chance than if you didn`t leave it on there.; Also, you sound kind of dumb. Just wanted

domhack1: just remember what you wear
domhack2: buy a clock!
domhack3: if you`re outside, how do you get the chain in the lock in the first place?
domhack4: bananas...not that hard to open
domhack7: after you wash the salt water off the can, the pan & your hands the drink will be warm again
schoolhack3: you`re not getting it back

mrthyeus, opening the banana by the stem produces strings. Open it "the wrong way" or the other side of the stem, throw the black thing away and that`s it.

Do people really have problems opening a banana from the top... I have to say that this has never been a problem for me and I will continue opening bananas the "wrong" way. Testify!

Losing your hair? So what, just let it go. You won`t die from baldness and you`ll save a ton of money on hair care products.

propecia should NOT be broken up and should NOT be handled by females of reproductive age.

"thats as long as its not a privately owned convenience store that just sells shell gas."

Shell sold off all but about 200 stores, all the rest are privately owned. Good luck with that one.

meant to also mention that you don`t need a special code at shell gas stations, they pride themselves on free air and water for your car. go inside and ask the attendant to turn it on, they shouldn`t even require you to spend a penny. thats as long as its not a privately owned convenience store that just sells shell gas.

most gas stations will give you free air/water if you just ask, just as they will let you use the restroom even though signs may say `paying customers only`

N3 explained:

Lets say you are trying to break in to a house. Maybe your house, maybe not. The door is unlocked, but the chain is on. You normally would have to break it open, or cut the chain to get in.
But with this trick, you can open the door, reach in, put the elastic on, close the door, open the door again, and enter the house now that the elastic pulled off the chain.

"most these only apply to rich people. must be nice to have that many clothes that you don`t wear em at least once a year."

I have clothes in my closet that I wore when I was in middle school, and I`m in my 3rd year of uni now. I`m in no way rich for having clothes that I don`t wear anymore (though those clothes would still fit xD). I just... really need to donate some of them instead of keeping them around. Actually, of all the clothes in my closet, I only have a few that I actually like wearing (excluding ones I can`t wear because they`re too hot and it hasn`t been cold enough to wear them :/). Buying 2 new shirts every time school starts and stopping wearing 2 old shirts at the same time doesn`t make me rich. The old shirts get faded and crap O.O

#3 of the first set was completely retarded. What is the point of the chain of having the handle automatically unlock the door. If you`re trying to keep people with spare keys out, it`s useless, if your door only has the chain lock, it`s useless. It just makes no drating sense.

"its called the photic sneeze relex"

It happens to me all the time. Whenever the light is bright I sneeze 2-3 times even if I didn`t have to originally.

Some are useful, and some are stupid.

Who would waste 2 cups of salt just to cool a drink faster?

Anyway, this is a repost.

Not only that but I`ve seen it more recently on other sites as well.

The aluminum foil thing isnt really a life hack. Just common sense and reading reading the damn box.

I do find it funny unlocking the chain from the outside, 2 things can go wrong, the rubber band can full off and thus you now cant get in your own house or to my knowledge, doesnt the chain have a purpose of security? allowing one to have system to remove the chain kinda causes the security factor to be avoided.

Been paid multiple times to taste beer. Not something I think you can really get paid to do full time, but manufacturers are always have community taste tests that`ll pay.

this will work for <50% of the population and maybe even <25%. its called the photic sneeze relex, and only affects 18–35% of the population

Domestic hack #3:
How does one lock the door from the outside while also locking the chain lock? If the chain is that long anyone could unlock it from the outside.
And what would be the purpose of unlocking the chain lock with the door handle? Troll?

The close elevator button doesn`t do a thing, it`s not hooked up to anything.

WRONG....WRONG....

"Love some of these. BUT 2 cups of salt is a lot to waste for an impatient beverage drinker.... just pour it over ice, bro."

You`ve gotta be pretty easy-going to be happy with diluting and slightly cooling a warm beverage by pouring it on ice. Also, addressing people as "bro" is just about the most obnoxious thing there is.

#3 Domestic- Whats the point of having a chain lock then? I must be missing something because it seems like that would just make it easier for someone to break into your home.

#7 miscellaneous. no they don`t. dumbass.
#4 misc. only certain types.
#5 will eventually destroy your lock leaving you in need of a locksmith
#2 body hack works to a point, but not for shift workers.
#1 body or move to the uk and get free healthcare while it still lasts.
#4 free stuff: doesn`t work at Travel lodge, uk.
#2 school/work: they`re getting wise to this.
#5 domestic doesn`t work if you have more than one pair of shoes.
#1 domestic is really annoying to try and get clothes out with the hangers in the wrong way. try coloured paperclips instead. slip one onto every hanger, slip it off when an item is worn. any left with paperclips need to be binned the next year.

#3 in domestic kinda ruins the whole purpose of the lock...

also the usb thing only works if someone wants to return it...
whenever i find a usb lost or forgotten in a computer the first thing i do is delete everything in it and keep it

god damn it don`t spread the renaming docs thing, we can`t have it become too popular.
I did that once in 7th grade (no idea what that is for other people) and the teacher called the technician and I was like nervous as hell and by sheer luck my pen drive happened to be infected with something from the school computers, so he said that was the problem.

I think the battery one has been dis-proven? Am I right? I have tried the elevator one MANY times and it never works.
