Put sauces and marinades on the top shelf so, when they leak, they flavor what is on the lower shelves...

Don't fill it all the way up.  Leave enough room so you can get in if there is a nuclear war.

And BTW, it would have actually worked fine and protected Indy from the prompt ionizing radiation, thermal radiation, and blast effects.  As long as he started walking upwind immediately after the blast, he'd probably avoid the worst of the local fallout also.

For historical interest, the largest tower shot in 1957 (the year the film is set) was only 44 kilotons yield.

Most of the tower shots in those tests were less powerful than the ones dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, mainly because they were testing ways to make them more efficient.

Oh, and if you don't believe me that he could have survived that, if you do the math, you can see he would have:

You should organize it alphabetically.
Carrots, cucumbers, and chicken go together.
So do milk, mutton, and mustard.

You want to know how to organize a fridge? You buy stuff, you put it in the fridge, and repeat until you can't fit anymore in. By then, it's time to start going through the old stuff in the back and throwing out the rotten food.

You are welcome.

Now you want to keep your severed heads in the freezer, I know this is consoversal, as a lot of people like them in the fridge, but if you keep in the freezer their look of horror lasts longer. Also it makes room for a nice large brining jar in the fridge for the feet and hands. Keep organ meats in crisper drawer with the vents closed. Only keep cooked meats in the deli drawer and goat cheese store well in the butter compartment.

/and milk doesn't go in the door.
//also if you have a roommate, like I did, writing you name on things can help.

I'm not going to tell people how to live their lives, but if you don't keep the milk on the top shelf/right/front, the ketchup on the door top shelf/rear, and the uncooked meats on the bottom shelf/left/front then you're objectively wrong and a terrible person.

You don't.  You lay on it.

There is nothing worse than being on a couch with another person rendering it unlayable.

Nothing.

As far as the fridge, just remember to leave plenty of space for the husky to cool off.

A) Cold air sinks, the bottom shelves of your fridge are colder than the top.
B) While very, very unlikely, there is a tiny chance that whatever raw meat or fish you have in there might leak onto something.
C) While fridge doors are well made, they are not perfect, and indecisive snackers will keep opening and closing the damn doors. Stuff on the doors will not be as cold as deeper, closer to the evaporator.

So no, it's not as simple as sitting on a couch. And I second the motion that a good couch is for laying across, not sitting.

I've heard people say you should store meat on the bottom shelf because of that issue, but unless you're setting raw meat on top of something else, I hardly see how that would even happen. With the exception of those small dorm fridges, they no longer sell them with wire shelves, it's all glass now. So any juices that leak from the meat would just pool on the surrounding glass. I guess if you're in the habit of setting unpackaged food or raw produce openly on the shelves it might be an problem. I just avoid the whole issue by keeping the meat inside a second container, usually the plastic grocery bag I brought it home in.

I've had some bone in steaks or pork chops tear through multiple plastic bags, although not recently. For awhile, I was always using half sheets/knock off hotel pans b/c I was paranoid, but I've gotten lazy again.

I have a problem with milk and eggs. If I don't have any, I'm unhappy because I can't make things with them. If I do have them, I eat other stuff and then they go bad.

OMG, this idiot who likes to wrap chips in lettuce still has an advice column? I remember this dumb idea from the "what's a good cleanse meal?" question earlier in the year, because who DOES that? Wrap your unhealthy food in healthy food and ruin both! Nachos and lettuce go GREAT together! The heat and grease won't affect that crispy romaine at all!

"But should you suddenly find yourself-surprise!-in front of a bowl of chips after a blackout that led you to cheat and buy a pack of them, do the following: eat them with some fresh leaves of romaine or even iceberg lettuce. You can literally wrap the chips into the leaves before stuffing them into your mouth. You will still get the satisfaction of the salty-oily crunch, but you won't feel dehydrated afterward, and you'll probably eat less of them. For me, this has certainly been the final and most important game changer in my occasional potato chip cravings."

As someone who puts all drinks on the bottom shelf because the top shelf isn't tall enough, I need to know if I'm the terrible person or the fridge is just a terrible fridge. Or are we both terrible and deserve each other?
