Bacteria that cause tooth decay, acne, tuberculosis, and leprosy can be cured with cashews.

If you cut a 'V' shape into your toe nails, you can prevent 'in-grown' toe nails.

Here's a little psychology trick, it's called anchoring mental states.You want to make 
girl smile? Try this out. Once you start talking to the girl and you have her in a conversation 
try to notice her breathing pattern. Try and inhale and exhale at the same time she does. 
(don't make it obvious, and it takes some practice)Next, wiggle your left hand fingers anytime 
she smiles while you are talking to her. Eventually, you will have anchored her smile and her 
mental state to the wiggling of your fingers. Every time you wiggle she will return to that mental 
state. NOTE: you don't have to use wiggling. You can pretty much use any subtle move. Try using the 
left side of your body though. ALSO, if you have the balls, instead of creating an anchor with your 
own body, use hers. Touch her left shoulder every time she smiles or laughs.

If you're given a cocktail napkin or coaster with excessive condensation, sprinkle salt on it. It will cease to lift up with your drink.

If you park your car somewhere where you think it may get stolen, remove something small but vital, like the fuse for the fuel pump.

if you wake up at night and you have to pee, just keep one eye closed, so it dosent adjust to the bright light = night vision in the closed eye when the light is back off

Pushing down on your left thumb for ten seconds cancels your gag reflex.

Secretaries and Admin Assistants are the gatekeepers for resources and people that you will need to have help you -- they also have
very strong relationships with those in positions of authority and also serve as informers to decision-makers. If they say you're good,
or that you've always been great to work with, that will factor in on you.

When filling out important paperwork, scan it in to Adobe Acrobat and use the typewriter tool to fill it out if you have bad handwriting.
Save the document. Now you have two things -- a copy in case you lose the paperwork or there is a dispute and a very professionally filled
form that can increase perceptions of you and reduce the chance of mistakes when important data is entered.

If you have more than 10,000 in your bank, start putting money in CDs that are very safe and boring. The sooner you start compounding interest,
the more and more powerful it becomes. I will not give more complicated investment advice, but the simple advice is CDs will pay you and play
with debt financing before advancing to equity.

Open a bank account, put a hundred dollars in it. Then put the atm card in a box somewhere. Having a hundred dollars that no one knows about
could save your life.

You can throw clothes in the dryer for about 5 minutes or so to get wrinkles out.

Put smelly shoes in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer overnight. The smell is caused by bacteria, which will die when deep frozen.

Use lighter fluid to remove sticky stuff from price labels etc.

A couple of grains of rice in a salt shaker will absorb moisture and keep the salt from turning into a miniature brick.

Sharpen scissors by using them a few times on a piece of sand paper.

If you just have to make dookies in a public restroom, you should first drop a big handful of toilet paper into the toilet to provide your turds with a landing zone cushion. This way, the nasty public poop water won't splash back on (or in) your butthole.

smiling suppresses the gag reflex.

If you need to calibrate a scale, a dollar bill and a penny weigh 1/8 of an ounce.

To hasten the onset of night vision, close your eyes for about 20 seconds.

If you're at college/uni do yourself a favor and google Anki and spaced repetition

** this one works all the time** i personally guarantee it

If theres something you really need to remember the next day, put a weird object in a weird place. It helps you to remember anything by triggering your memory.
