  • Did you know that if a Duracell battery leaks, and destroys one of your devices, the company will replace the device if it is sent to them with the defective batteries still in place.
  • If you work in customer service, put a mirror behind you. Customers will be nicer because no one wants to see themselves being a jerk.
  • When taking notes in class, always leave a few pages in the front for a table of contents This will make it 100 times easier at the end of the year to study from once you have a full notebook.
  •  In a public bathroom the stall which is the closest to the door is usually the cleanest because it’s the least used.
  •  You can heal paper cuts and immediately stop the pain with chapstick.
  •  You are more likely to remember something you’ve written in blue ink than something you’ve written in black ink.
  •  Looking for something? Scan right to left with your eyes. You’l pick up more since your brain isn’t used to reading that way.
  •  Struggling with your diet? Cut only processed foods. You’ll feel an immediate difference and it will motivate you to keep going!
  •  The faster you eat the more weight you gain.
  •  A venti size at Starbucks fits perfectly into two tall sizes. If you’re with a friend, and just want a tall, it’s cheaper to just split on one venti. A venti Frappuccino can cost $4.95 and one tall can cost $3.95, you’ll save about $1.50
  •  Nervous about a speech, presentation, or first date? Blow on your thumb. The vagus nerve, which connects to your thumb, controls your heart rate, and by blowing on it your heart rate will return to normal. Really???
  • Gatorade or Powerade is only healthy when it’s during a workout, and watered down. Otherwise it’s all just extra sugar and empty calories.

  1. These are cool, but what if I read some languages that are left to right, and some that are right to left (I am serious – this is not a joke!)? Do I have to scan up and down? I have a Japanese friend who, in addition to English (left to right) and Hebrew (right to left), reads Japanese, vertically. What about her?
    BTW, I can explain why things written in blue ink are memorized faster than those written in black. Ditto for the last two points. It’s the way our brain functions.

      1. You know that among many things I love about you is that you recognize my crazy jokes! The book is almost finished; working on the cover and the last finishing touches.
        I’ll send you a collection of dessert recipes ASAP. 🙂


    1. and the blue ink I think is true. People usually always write with black..so the blue you would remember because it stands out. And I think your just trying to give me a hard time today! 😦

      1. Well, then red would stand out even more, but you’d remember it even less, trust me. No, it’s because contrasting colors shock our visual processing, while soft, calming colors flow right in, so to speak. Of course I am trying to give you a hard time; if you don’t go ribbing your friends, who else would you do it to?

      1. The public bathroom tip is #1! Healing paper cuts with chapstick, cutting out processed foods (it’ll be harder than I think!), splitting a venti Starbucks coffee and blowing on my thumb when I get nervous! That one should REALLY be interesting!


  2. I love little nuggets like this Linda!! The one about eating fast – it’s because it takes the brain 20 minutes to let your body know it’s full so if you eat too fast you are probably over eating! 😀

      1. I’m playing catch up still on my blog reading. I did see one update and it IS growing!! How wonderful!! Were you able to copy the picture I sent? I was wondering if maybe the file name was too long. You can rename it if you need to. 😀
