    I have a lifehacking idea for a small pencil sized metal barrel and a LED bulb. You can make a torch out of it

    The L&R was fading off my earphones. I scratched the right one slightly so I can feel which is which without even having to look, sort of like braille.

    I'm sure you can them on ebay etc.

    or get a standard 12V panel and wire up a car cigarette lighter USB adaptor to it.

    I think it's a method of making taking full bags out of a bin easier!

    whats that metal thing holding the pencil ?

    Its an Xacto knife. The kind used by artists and architects (who also get through a lot of pencils). The knurled part twists to tighten - an LED torch wouldn't do this so wouldn't work.

    looks like he's tethering it to the laptop and using the bowl with tin foil to boost the signal.

    Shame we cant come up with a standard size for life hacking pictures.

    Also, on that last page were a number of items that do not constitute a life hack. The voodoo doll knife stand for example.

    I don't have a problem with lending my USB sticks so much with people who think asking me to lend it is no-big-deal. So I do this instead.

    "Can I borrow your thumbdrive?"

    221330.png
    *Hold out your hand, palm up*

    "Huh?"

    "You can borrow it. But I'll require a deposit. €50."

    "€50!?"

    "I'm just as serious about getting my thumbdrive back as you are about getting your fifty back. You're welcome to take it or leave it."

    The hold-out-hand-gesture, initial silence, and genuine politeness are each important. If you do it so its like there's some widely known unspoken rule they're ignoring they may be too embarrassed or obedient to protest. Most importantly they'll not want to ask you in future if they've they're the kind who just can't get their sh't together and make a habit of this.

    If they haggle, the correct response is, politely but firmly:

    "I'm sorry, but €10 isn't €50."

    There's nothing as frustrating to argue with as a murderously self evident fact and no way to change the scope of the argument. They'll give up, and its unlikely they'll be back.

    If they do actually agree (its never happened, but I don't rule it out), I presume you've no problem lending it like me, the cost of the drive is a lot less than €50 (if more, demand higher; in multiples of €50. Nice crisp notes matter.), and all data on the drive is already backed up (so even if it accidentally erased everything it will not be a problem).

    Ammm....what

    Ammm....what

    Yeah that poster doesnt really understand the concept of lifehacking. There was way too much speaking required for it to be a lifehack.
