Know your coverage.
You can save a decent amount on your car rental by skipping the insurance. If you paid for your rental with your credit card, you’re most likely already covered. But it’s important to know the specifics of what that card does and doesn’t cover, and how it works.

In case you're actually interested in the videos you subscribe to.
Android: YouTube’s official app isn’t super friendly to your subscriptions. While you can get a list of videos, that’s about it. Tuber makes it easier to browse by focusing solely on your subscriptions.

Good. YouTube format is so annoying.

It's all about moderation:
Most people, when trying to lose weight, obsessively count the calories they eat throughout the day. Although calorie information is easy to find and many people depend on it, it turns out that calorie information posted in restaurants and even on the back of food packages are not even accurate. http://vitals.lifehacker.com/why-you-can-t-...

It's okay; you don't have to be afraid anymore. This video from +TED-Ed shows you the right way to use the infamous semicolon. (In your writing, not your code.)

Unfortunately I can't watch the video now, as I'm in a testing center.  But I'd like to see the semicolon used in another fashion than the strictly correct sense.  If you apply logic, it could be allowable and I'd like to see it happen.  I will continue to do so, whether it's regarded as strictly correct or not.

So, given that it's supposed to group together two independent clauses that rely heavily on each other, I like to use it to connect a dependent clause that needs more separation from the originating sentence than a comma usually provides.

This puts less stress on the other commas in the work and allows the reader to separate the thoughts more in line with what the writer intends. 

Boy, it sure would help illustrate my point if I had a good example; sadly, I don't right now.

The delicious power of a vacuum chamber.
If you want some pickles as soon as possible, but don’t want to go to the store, you can make your own at home in about 30 seconds.

Turn that trash into (normally expensive) treasure:
Amassing a fragrant graveyard of strawberry stems is an inevitable part of eating strawberries. You can cut or hull as carefully as you like, but there’s almost always going to be a bit of strawberry flesh hanging on to the green. Don’t toss those tops in the trash.

Before you do anything else, take a moment to protect your data.
When you first get a new Windows computer (or set up an old one), you might be focused on downloading your favorite apps and transferring your files. This is also a good time to configure your machine to protect your privacy.

These are good tips to use if you for some reason have to use Windows 10.  I agree with the others, though, your best bet is to assume Windows is backdoored and otherwise just broken security-wise.

Going without socks doesn't have to mean stinky feet.

Upgrade your lunch - all it takes is a little prep, and a little hot water:
The most frustrating part of eating lunch at work is dealing with the microwave. Unless you time it exactly right, there is always a line and it usually smells strongly of popcorn. I’m here to tell you that you don’t need that microwave in your life; you can make tasty, fast lunches using hot water.

When a colleague is going through a personal crisis, it's wise to strike a balance between showing support and respecting their privacy.
When you spend over 40 hours a week with the same group of people, you can’t help but form bonds. Shared experiences at office, dealing with tough bosses, and frequenting favorite lunch spots can turn colleagues into personal friends. But when a coworker is going through a personal crisis, how do you show support while respecting their privacy?

Build a kite and let it fly.
Aerial photography is a lot of fun and you have a ton of options for doing it. These days drones are certainly one of the most popular, but balloons work too. If that’s all too much of an investment, Make shows you how to do it with a kite.

Try a box kite, which is really stable in the air but boring to fly. A delta conyne design is also good but not as stable. Use a dog stake screwed into the ground to hold your line.
