think you have astigmatism?

Go to a local sporting or gun store, pretend to know what you're doing and ask for the most expensive red dot sight they have. if you see a nice dot in it you're good. starburst or little wiggly things? you got the tism.

Missing childhood fun?

Rob the nearest convenience store and wait until the cops show up and you’ll get a good old fashioned game of tag!

If you're ever in a fight, and you getting butt naked doesn't deter them, pin your opponent to the ground and pull their pants down. No one is crazy enough to fight that.

How to un-block your ears when you have a cold

Pinch both nostrils and exhale as though you were going to blow your nose. This will force air into the Eustachian tubes, and voila! They'll feel like normal.... for a little while, then you'll have to do it again.

Can cause an ear infection. Personally I'm willing to take the risk.

Can't get your wisdom teeth out? Just put a book in your mouth

I'm 29 now, and my wisdom teeth started coming in when I was about 19-21, like they do for most people. At the time, I had just moved to the city from the country town I grew up in, and I didn't have the money to go and get them extracted, but they were also really getting between me and the enjoyment of my life, since I couldn't fully open my mouth to eat food or perform oral sex. I'm gay, so part of the appeal of moving to the city from the country was definitely the opportunity to sleep around a bit, and I'm not ashamed of that lmao

What I used to do is, after work and on my days off when I had nothing on, I would lie in bed with a thick book in my mouth and hold it there. Sometimes for hours at a time, just while I watched movies or played video games or read another book. And it hurt, but over time it hurt less, and doing it seemed to push my wisdom teeth around such that they no longer caused me pain and I could fully open my mouth to chow down burgers or give mad head. I'm sure this messed up my teeth at the back and no dentist would ever recommend it, but I live in Australia, where dental care is not covered under our public health service, so if that's you too, maybe this shitty life hack will help you.

TL;DR: Put a thick hardcover book in your mouth when your wisdom teeth start coming in, save on dental bills

If your feet get dirty walking through your neighbor's flower bed while looking on their windows...

Just pour some body wash in your toilet, grab the toilet brush, and use it as an improvised foot bath!

Easy way to reduce your water bill from showering without compromising your hygiene

If your water bill is too high, you can take a 10 minute shower at 11:55 PM. Since your shower ends at 12:05 AM, you showered on two separate days. Now you can shower every day while reducing your actual usage by 50%.

Running late for work?

Drive twice as fast, and you'll get there in half the time, guaranteed! you can also just drive on the wrong side of the road, it's the fastest way to your destination.

I thought it was a good hack. Other people had opposite opinions.

If you think you're a bad apple, just remember, there's always the chance you might actually be a rotten egg instead.

SLPT: the opposite of excess is incest.

That's why if you get really drunk it's OK to sleep with your cousin.

Who's was the first?

When staying at hotels, I often wonder who was the innovative genius that was the reason for these warnings. Why would you think to hang something from this?

Store all important documents by the front door of your house so when you get burgled, the robber will get all the important information first.
