    50 Life Hacks to Simplify your World

    I stumbledupon that link a while ago and put some to good use. However, a word to the wise regarding No.11...go easy when wiping a loaded paint brush on an elastic band unless you want to splatter the entire room with paint splodges :(

    Just tried the 'Brownie in a Mug'. Not too bad. A bit heavy, but worth the effort. Ice cream is a must with it!

    Some of these are a bit dodgy:

    Number 9. Who wants a hole in their strawberry?
    Number 11: What happens when the rubber band snaps? Paint all over the shop.
    Number 13: Do we really need to encourage MORE drinking?

    Plus he seems to be obsessed with cables....

    9: some people prefer no stalk in their strawberries.

    #38 wouldn't work here - and a good thing too, since it's a potential electrical fire hazard. You don't want to see that in a workshop environment. If it's powering something that draws a lot of current, the loop will lead to induction heating, the insulation could melt and the wires short out. Not good.

    I don't really get why you would pour pancake mix from a jug into a splotch-inducing ketchup bottle
    That's more messy

    Avoid wading through all the old and not very good lifehacks in the lifehacks forum, by waiting until someone posts a Top 50 in the Cool Vids & Pics & links forum.

    Read this handy tip (at least I think it is :p) in some magazine before and I've been using it ever since! Whenever I make cheese on toast or toasted cheese sandwiches I put the bread in the toaster, when it's toasted put the butter and cheese on and then I pop into the microwave until the cheese is nice and melted. That way the bread doesn't burn like it can under the grill if left for too long, you can properly melt the cheese, instead of having lumps in some places (I like to put on a lot of cheese okay :p) and it's mess free!:)

    I don't have to justify my way of making toasted cheese sandwich to you!:p I think it's way better anyway, but my main reason was just it was easier to really melt the cheese without the bread burning before it had melted.:pac:

    We do that, well we'll make toast, make a cheese sandwich then microwave it. It's awesome. Sometimes we'll stall making dinner until its "too late for a big dinner" just so we can have them.

    Number 1 that holds the cables in paper clips, how is the end of the cable supposed to go through the clip if each end of the cable is big?
