Lifehack 22.

If you run out of panko when breading something to be fried, you can substitute crumbled up cracker crumbs, instead.

Lifehack 23.

If you're considering painting your room a new colour, make sure to check with your landlord first, if you're renting. Also, brighter colours can make you feel more cheerful, while darker colours may make you feel gloomy.

Window cleaners: when agreeing on a price with Dr Who to clean the windows of the Tardis, don't be conned into agreeing to do the insides for the same price

Homeless people: avoid being moved on by the police by setting up permanent home outside an Apple Store. When asked to move, simply state you are an Early Adopter and are queuing for the iPhone X

Guys, guys, don't worry. All my puns are carefully calculated to maximise entertainment value.

Here's the basic formula I like to use:

f(x)   =(h-l)H(x+1)+(r-h)H(x-1)+(l-w)H(x+3)+(w-r)H(x-3)+w   
g(x)  =



Then again, there's a reason I'm teaching English instead of math (or comedy). *sigh*

Lifehack 24.

If you find yourself with an avocado that isn't ripe yet, and you want it to ripen faster, put it in a brown paper bag. It will ripen faster.

If you don't want it to ripen faster, don't put it in a brown paper bag.

Apple Early Adopters: save the embarrassment and humiliation of having to explain that you're queuing so long just for a phone, by pretending you are a homeless person.

Bachelor Living Top Tip #1:

Want to eat a big frozen pizza, but you live alone? Just break the frozen pizza in half, then put it in the oven. Put the other half back in the freezer.

Lifehack 25.

If you don't like having cloudy looking ice cubes and want that real clear clear, boil some distilled water first and freeze that. Your ice cubes will be crystal clear.

If a creepy guy is talking to you on the subway, work "Where do you live?" into the conversation. Then you know where he will be getting off before they can ask you where you live. Not foolproof, but it can help.

Buy some beer, etc. from a CU and leave it in the hotel minibar.  Ask for a credit on your bill at thier price.

Ladies: save time in the morning by dong your make-up the night before, then wrap your head in clingfilm to preserve it overnight

Lifehack 26.

If your umbrella is wet, open it to let it dry before putting it away. Putting a wet umbrella away can lead to unsightly mildew and it will smell bad.

You don't even have to buy ice packs, just throw a wet hand towel in the freezer and you're all set.

*can be used for humans or pregnant cats

This is a great lifehack. Can you use it for dogs, too?

Lifehack 27.

If you're drawing using markers or felt-tipped pens, use the light colours first, and dark colours later. That way your yellow or sky blue won't get all dirty from the purple or black ink getting on it.

I'm sorry if someone said this already. I'm not reading through 12 pages, sorry! But here's my favorite lifehack:

Keep your bag of food waste in the freezer so that it doesn't get stinky or attract gnats before you're ready to take it out. Nothing is soggy or dripping either when it's time to throw out. No mess, no stink :)
