    There's no purpose for the adhesive in the center of nasal strips. The ends need it because they pull outwards. The center is just pressed against your nose as long as the ends have the adhesive. Why get more glue on your nose than necessary? I put a piece of tissue in the center. The flesh colored ones are made of a smellier plastic. I think the clear ones are healthier, though I think the glue is different. The clear ones have gooier glue that makes the strips easier to remove ("gentle") but I think more glue stays on your nose and probably penetrates deeper into your skin. It also penetrates more layers of tissue. I recommend three layers of two ply tissue. I tear off a strip from a tissue and fold it over twice. I have a whole technique that I won't get into.

    I will accept no further friend requests. This doesn't mean I don't love you or anything so don't be offended.

    if you hate hang over grade dry heaving try this trick. drink a couple 16 oz cups of water. put your middle and index fingers* down your throat and quickly shove them to the back. this induces projectile vomiting. drink more water this time except do everything harder and puke again. digested crap should start coming up. do it a third time if you have the energy. then take 4 crushed 500 mg servings of acetametaphin. toss and wash. do a bump (JK). thank me later.

    *the fingering trick takes practice but when you've got it down you'll feel like you've mastered both aspects of alcohol consumption.
    You write like a beautiful pear-shaped man with a voice that wants to be heard. I hear you John, ssh... *whispers* I hear you. *hugs John*

    1. you can have a perfectly hangover-free drinking spree so long as you remember to drink a pitcher of water before you go to sleep. the hangover is caused by dehydration so hydrating before you sleep prevents that.

    2. if you want someone to open up to you, tell them something deeply personal to you first. subconsciously, this makes them feel that you two are intimate, so they are bound to tell you things they normally wouldn't.

    3. if you want to find trustworthy associates, sprinkle your secrets (made up secrets are the best since you can afford to "lose" them) among your acquaintances with each acquaintance knowing a different secret. the secret that gets out will help you identify who is untrustworthy.

    4. if you like someone, ignore them.

    Twist tie shelf brackets (or bent wire) to a vent to make a shelf for glued or painted things while they dry. Shoe Goo has pretty strong smelling solvent. If it wasn't winter and snowing I'd keep them outside.

    If someone want you to call them "Dr." followed by their first name, they don't have a doctorate relevant to their claimed profession, if they even have a doctorate at all.

    Examples:

    Dr. Phil
    Dr. Laura
    Dr. Dre
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    Whoa, calm down, Machiavelli.

    #2 and #4 aren't life hacks, they're manipulation.

    Add glasses for an additional +5 to Cha for purposes of appearing smarter.

    Include a clipboard and a pencil for the bonus to intimidation rolls and go almost anywhere. Though these days you might get more mileage from a tablet provided it has a stylus. It's the precise movement of the writing utensil that gives people pause when you record their name and identification number. Fingerpainting doesn't have the same result. Neither does pecking on a virtual keyboard.
