Here's another one: for an inexpensive alternative to chewing gum, spread some toothpaste on a couple of elastic bands. Smile

Another useful tip: Boil an egg to perfection without costly egg timers by popping it into boiling water and driving away from your home at exactly 60mph. After three miles, phone your wife to take the egg out the pan.Smile

Another useful tip: Wedding photographers are highly territorial and don't tolerate their young. To assimilate into their hierarchy purchase a cheap camera and start taking their prey at the edge of their financial territory, in this way you will gain their respect and carve out a territory of your own.

If you own both a dog and cat and one must sustain a distal tibial fracture........................ensure it is the dog since it has better arborisation of the medullary artery than the cat thus ensuring a higher chance of successful bony union.

Not a day goes by I don't thank the Lord for blessing me with this knowledge.

I've tried my best and I even used a magnifying glass but I still can't see the ant's hole to leave my cucumber skin by. If you pull their little legs too far apart they tend to snap off.
