After that go back and ask for some salt packets.

It works
at some places (especially if you know a person or two working at the Mcdonalds) you can just ask for fresh whatever (i ask for a fresh fish patty thing when i order filet-o-fish's at some places) and they'll just make one fresh for you instead of just pulling it out of the heatpad thing they keep all their food

Your posts make you sound stupider and stupider. If you would stop being so ignorant and actually read the posts of the people that are trying to help you understand how to blow your nose with your mouth open, you would know how easy it is to blow your nose with your mouth open.

Reading your posts made my quota of the day encountering atleast 1 idiot everyday. thank you sir.

want free food at a drive thru?
here's how!

drive thru's that have 2 order windows
pull up to the window
have a car behind
when you pull up the menu/ordering speaker machine just ask for like water/napkins or w/e - basically dont order anything.
stay in line and pull up to the first window and say you forgot your wallet or something
pull up to the 2nd window - now the 2nd window wont know you didnt order any food or spoke to the person at the FIRST window so they are gonna hand you the people's food that belongs to car behind you.

edit: first window is usually pay window, second window is pick up window

Won't the second window ask for money though? Sorry, maybe I am just not reading it correctly, can someone clarify this?

edit: first window is usually pay window, second window is pick up window
generally the people who speak to you at the microphone at the beginning of the drive thru is the person working the drive thru

so when you pull up to the first/second window, they'll just hand you your cup of water/napkins since they'll likely remember that one person didn't place an order for anything worth money

i've heard about this trick a lot of times, but there's a lot of variables in place for you to actually be able to pull this off (2 drive through windows, that have to be unconnected because the person at the second window will hear what you said to the person at the first window, the person taking your order can't be working the drive through, the drive through people just generally have to be sorta dumb, etc)

If you acquire goods with names like Prada, Gucci, LV and Feragamo for a girl ... as long as the value is over $1K... they will touch your penis!

You can just ask when your ordering to make all your meat fresh, and tell them you dont mind waiting. And when you get your food and its not fresh, just fucking complain and they will fix it for you.

I hate hiccups and I am sure a lot of people are with me on this, and one thing that works for me is to press down the middle of the palm with the other hand's thumbnail (doesn't matter which hand you press down on). I am not sure how many other people it might work on lol.

http://www.todayifoundout.com/index....osable-razors/

Quote:
Today I found out how to drastically increase the life of your shaver razor blades, such as Gillette or Schick Brand razors. This trick is incredibly simple and just as incredibly affective. It will also save you a nice chunk of change over time and make all your dreams come true…

For instance, Gillette Fusion Brand razor cartridge sets typically will run you about $27 per set of 12, which will typically only last you a few months and less if you actually go by their expiration “strip” in determining when the cartridge needs replaced. With the below method, I have now gone about eight months using the exact same cartridge and the blades on the cartridge are as sharp as when I first popped the cartridge on.

I have no idea how long this will keep up, but now a package of 12 cartridges is apparently going to last me at least 12 years or more. This is a savings of around $70 a year over my previous expenditures on these cartridges; so then a savings of close to $840 over the course of 12 years or so and possibly will last more years depending on how long these things will stay sharp with the below method (I haven’t yet found the upper limit).

You could then use this $840 to buy $840 worth of bacon, which should of course make all your dreams come true, assuming your dreams are all bacon related; which lets face it, who’s aren’t???


Materials Needed:
- Pair of Jeans (old or new, it doesn’t matter; just needs to have one of the pant legs in tact)
- Shaver like Gillette or Schick Brand razors or other disposable razors.


Before or after you shave (I prefer before so that the blades are dry), place your jeans on a hard flat surface; then run the razor up the pant legs about 10-15 times quickly; then repeat running it down the pant legs 10-15 times quickly. No need to press that hard, but a little pressure is necessary. In both instances, you want to point the top of the razor in the direction you are rubbing the shaver on the pants. In other words, don’t “shave” the pants; point the razor the other way, so that the blades glide over the surface of the jeans and don’t try to cut them.

The threads on the jeans then will very effectively both fix any tiny bends in the blades that inevitably happen and will also sharpen the blades on your shaver cartidge. For an already dull blade, you can sharpen it up pretty effectively by doing 50-100 swipes both ways to get it back up to “like new” condition, but only 10-15 times swiped both ways should be necessary to maintain sharpness.

Pro-tip: rather than always having to grab a pair of jeans to do this with, I just cut the pant leg off some old jeans I was throwing away and put it in the same drawer as my Gillette shaver. The same pant leg has so far sharpened the blades on my shaver cartidge quite well for going on eight months now.

Source:
I found this on a tutorial somewhere on the good ol’ Internet about eight months ago, but can’t seem to find it now; instead in my search to find where I originally saw this, my results are always coming up with how to sharpen the old barber shop style straight edge razor blades.

wow half a year old bump

i found a pretty funny lifehack the other day. thought it was clever if nothing else

basically if you forget someones name (especially a girl), you ask them for their name. they'll probably be offended and then tell you. then you say "oh i meant your last name"

it's a pretty old thing but just incase some of you didn't know it already. my friends thought it was pretty funny and clever cause they hadn't thought of it

That's so simple yet I've never thought of it.

Thank you!

lol @ idiots who don't get the opening your mouth when you blow your nose and those who argued that it is pointless.

Yes, when you are blowing your nose, air does not escape your mouth. However, if you blow too hard and the pressure gets too high in your sinuses, your tongue/soft palate will relax to before your eardrums break, so the air escapes through your mouth instead of out your eardurms. It's like a safety valve.

Always peeled my bananas that way only problem is it leaves u with a really dirty brown tip when you first bite into it. Often I just throw it on the ground or ignore it and eat it, but the textures different
