Dafatone: Every technological advance pitched as a way to save time, increase efficiency, and take a load off of workers, in the history of time, winds up making workers work harder for less.

Cotton gin, assembly line, computers, internet, etc.

If it lets you get more done in less time, you're expected to have more total output, not the same output in less time.  Always.  Since forever.


And that's why we don't live in mudthatched huts.

How is this more useful than standing up the bottles?

Dont have to raise a shelf halfway up the fridge to fit bottles under, also if you drink more than one kind of beer you can get different ones out without having to dig in the back and probably knocking a bunch over.


Ya, but how much space do you need in the fridge? There's only so much been you can drink in one sitting.

Lifehacking Tip:

Masturbate in the shower.

Lotion-soaps as lube, all right there where you need 'em;
Shoot it anywhere you like, no spill worries;
Easy cleanup - you're already in there for a shower.


It's going to save millions of man-hours which can be applied to building a better Homeland.

Is "life hack" like spit and bailing wire, or more like a death rattle?

NostroZ: Here are useful LIFEHACKS... or as I'd like to call them... Poor people's tricks to living:

Are you a janitor at a crappy job that does not have a mop sink?   LIFEHACK!

[bp2.uuuploads.com image 605x435]
Can you not afford a keychain holder?  Do you find yourself walking around tennis courts looking for lost balls in your spare time?   LIFEHACK!

[img.photobucket.com image 576x432]

Do you live in a third world country with limited resources?   LIFEHACK!


That is stupid. A funnel and hose would be more practical and flexible solution and there a bazillion and one hooks for walls solutions out there. In the end you would get your dustpan wet and have neon green blobs all around your room.

In a third world country, you wouldn't have a sink with running water.

Thoguh: Using the word "lifehack" should be a punchable offense.


Eh, the term is apropos. A hack is inherently dangerous (think duct tape and power tools). A practitioner of a lifehack should be punished for their hubris soon enough. I'm only left wondering where all the lifehackfailblogs are.

Synonymous with "by using this one weird trick".

Crewmannumber6: Lucky for me I have no idea what that means.


It's just a word people who think they're smarter than everyone else use for doing mundane things like recycling old toilet paper rolls.
