Supposed to be a nice day. Sunny, 70's.

After 4 or 5 shots of good tequila or bourbon, you might as well drink the cheap stuff. At that point, you won't know the difference anyway.

TOTD: What is your completely useless tip that you would like to pass on to the board?

Highs in the low 90s (for just one day).

TOTD: Stuffing dryer sheets into shoes will just get you worse-smelling shoes. Skip that tip.

But dryer sheets under your hat will keep gnats away.

I'm about to experience it Friday afternoon.

Formaldehyde concoction to straighten hair.


I have a bad feeling about this and will probably chicken out.

On the big green interstate signs, if a tab (like "exit 47") is on the left, it means the exit will be on the left. If the tab is on the right (about 90% of the time), the exit will be on the right.

Why would you straighten your hair? I have naturally curly hair and I love it. :confused:

It's not just on THAT exit, of course. It's on all of them. I must have been well into my thirties when I heard this tidbit of information on TV one day, and I was astonished. I told several friends, and they were astonished. One friend said, "Oh, yeah. Everybody knows that." SO not true. :p

The little arrow on the gas gauge tells you what side of the car you need to fuel from.

I would submit that the arrow pointing to the right is pretty indicative.

I just grabbed the first example I saw. Of course not all of them have those arrows.

Well, unless you can find one with the arrow pointing away from the tab, the original point is still correct. :D

Someone needs to put some underwear on that arrow.

For um... some women I know...
When the pointer on the gas gauge is on "E", stop and get more gas or plan on walking soon.

It looks neater. I have naturally curly hair as well and sometimes it's crazy...lol

I cancelled and have decided to keep my curly locks. When I want to straighten, I'll just use my CHI.

when picking up a atlas stone never use your biceps to cradle the stone as you run the rick of ripping the muscle. You shoould hug the stone into your lap and pull against your body using your gut as a ramp to roll the stone up to your shoulder, then you can deposit said stone on to stand.....
