Pro-Tip #33

If you are cutting into drywall, so as to install a fusebox etc., make the horizontal cuts before the vertical cuts. If you've missed detecting a stud, it will let you know, and you'll have to spend less time re-patching.

Pro-Tip #32

If you are at a restaurant with a wide and varied menu, do not order the Fettuccine Alfredo. Many restaurants put it there for people who are too scared to order anything else, which means they aren't going to try too hard when they're making it. It's hard to make a really good or a really terrible Fet-Alf, so its unlikely anyone's going to be worrying about their reputations afterward.

Pro-Tip #31

If, like me, you're finding that you only get status updates from the same 10 people, check out the "Edit Options" at the bottom of the feed, then switch it from "Friends you interact with most" to "All Friends"... Facebook loves to throw in random changes without working out the algorithms.

Pro-Tip #30

Reheated french-fries always kinda suck. The best way to reheat them is by re-frying them. After microwaving a little to get the heat up, throw them in a pan and put them on a stove for a while: there should be enough oil in them that you don't even have to add anything.
