This is your spiralizer's higher calling.
The vegetable spiralizer may have been invented so you could make plant parts into healthy impostor noodles, but I’m here to suggest you use it for a higher purpose. I am here to suggest you use it for latkes.

"Never tweet."
There’s something about Farhad. Tech reporters can quickly become jaded and cynical about their work, but Farhad Manjoo’s lucid writing lacks any sense of needless snark when he discusses how technology affects our lives. Though when I talk about Farhad’s writing, I’m really talking about his tweets.

If you don't have it, you need it. If you have it, you need more of it. This video from +DNews explains how being dehydrated actually affects your mind and body.

Hopefully this will help with your truss issues.
In the world of kitchen tips and tricks, there seems to be an never-ending supply of “you’ve been doing it all wrong” type of articles. I’ve seen various websites and videos alike declare that their method of wrapping kitchen twine around a bird is the way to ensure a juicy, evenly-cooked meal, but it’s hard to know how (or who) to truss.

+Steve Brown Oh, I dunno...maybe because I cook? If I'm roasting a whole bird, I'll brine it and tie it traditionally, roast it upside down on a V-rack at 375 for 30-0 minutes or so, then blast heat it right side up at 475 for 10-15 minutes. Juicy bird, cooked through, thighs done, bottom has crispy skin...
OR, flatten it and roast it flat. No truss required, backbone for stock purposes, crispy skin everywhere.

Most stores will let you rent tools and trucks, cut lumber and piping, and even offer free home improvement classes.
Any budding DIYer or homeowner can tell you that they spend a lot of time at places like Lowe’s and Home Depot. Shopping at big box stores can be a frustrating experience, from trying to locate a single item to finding someone who can answer a basic question. Here are some tips for making the most of your visit to these home improvement behemoths.

You might feel insulted, but finding out you make less could prompt you towards a better position:
Aaargh. You just found out that your coworker makes more than you do, even though you both do the same kind of work, you’ve been there longer, and you do a better job. You feel demoralized, insulted by your not-such-a-great friend employer, and resentful of your coworker. Before you protest, here’s how to handle the situation professionally. http://lifehacker.com/the-company-yo... The Company You Work For Is Not Your Friend The Company You Work F...

I'd plan their death by some horrible accident. But that'll only work once or twice before the cops get wise. But that's just me.

Trying to pin down every single detail will only drive you crazy.
When done well, daily and weekly planning rituals can help you travel gracefully through life in a peaceful, intentional manner. But sometimes, over-planning your activities can make you a neurotic, stressed-out person who feels like you would have been better off if you hadn’t planned anything in the first place.

Minimizing clutter will also help you focus and allow you to get tasks done much more quickly as well.

Who's to blame? It probably wasn't the last place you ate.
The worst food poisoning I ever had was a few days after returning from a weekend vacation with friends. When I finally dragged myself out of the bathroom, an email was waiting for me: “Is everybody else feeling okay? I know our dinner together was a few days ago so I’m sure it’s not that, but I just wanted to check.”http://lifehacker.com/5861452/how-do... How Do I Avoid Poisoning Everyone at Thanksgiving Dinner?

I remember getting food poisoning from some inconspicuous salmon roll that must have gone off. Nausea, sweat, fever and feeling sick to the bone :-p

Good to know if you're a traveler on a budget.
Vacations are expensive, and some destinations can be pricier than others. Here are the most expensive countries around the world for tourists, according to the World Economic Forum’s Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report 2015.

Yep, I guessed the top 2 (the photo suggests the #1 country though). Matches my experience, even 15 years ago when the dollar was very strong.

Those gel seats often put more pressure, not less, on your sensitive parts.
Just as the squishiest running shoes aren’t the most comfortable in the long run, the softest bike seats aren’t the best either. If your butt hurts when you ride, there are other things to check before you buy a new saddle—and other considerations besides how soft it is.

Best saddle I ever had was the leather Selle Italia one I fitted to my Lapierre Pelvoux rigid MTB. THe saddle is pretty solid but springy & has a parallelogram shock absorber system between seat post & saddle shell. No gel required. In 1996 I cycled 1400 miles between Land's End & John O'Groats on it, and that after doing Montbeliard to Boulogne on it in 3 days. I can't say that it was painless - all long distance cycling involves a bit of rear end pain - but it was bearable even after 14 days of 100 miles/day over hills & mountains. I'd swear by it.

Can also apply to some non-Nexus devices, if you're lucky.
Android updates take forever. While that’s okay most of the time, it can be a problem when a new, terrible security vulnerability is found. Whether you want to protect your phone, or just can’t wait for new updates, here’s how to skip the line and update your Nexus phone (and occasionally other devices) manually.
