    Also, if you meet someone whose name you have forgotten and want to avoid an embarrassing situation then just simply say in a conversation

    "Hey, sorry I forgot your name" ..
    -"oh, its JD"
    "No, I meant you last name" ..
    -"Its 666 .. "
    "right thanks JD"

    No you got to know their full name .. tadaaa

    A useful one. If you are traveling as a couple, book the window and aisle seat in economy. The chances of someone booking the middle seat are pretty darn low. If it works, you'll have the middle seat all to yourself and stretch out on.

    Some airlines/booking websites do not allow this. The easiest work around is to simply book 2 individual tickets from different browsers.

    Another trick that I use a lot while traveling.

    Most of the times, the power plug point varies by country to country. And to simply charge my phone, I have to end up hooking it to my laptop and then waiting for it to charge.

    Most hotels have LCD TVs, and these TVs support USB playback. Just plug in your USB cable and you have a spare charging point available whenever you need it.

    Something for the DIY enthusiast.

    #1 - Use a post-it while drilling - Fold it in half, so that it sticks out like a shelf, and stick it under the area you wish to drill. The cement/sand will fall on the post-it and will make cleaning easier.

    #2 - Use a clothes-pin for holding a nail while hammering. This will prevent you from accidentally hammering your thumb or finger (one of the biggest deterrents for anyone trying to hammer anything).

    When you are out grocery shopping, if you are not the kind to make a list, take a photograph of your refrigerator with the door open (of the items inside). It'll be much easier to remember!

    For the DIY cooking enthusiast -

    Chopping onions can be the most painful experience for some. Here are some tricks that help

    1) soak em in water for 2-3 minutes before chopping. If possible, peel the outermost layer before soaking in water.

    2) Chew gum while chopping. Dunno why it works, but it does.

    3) Dab a little oil on your knife before chopping, won't cause you tears. Though be careful with the slippery blade.

    Rather than paying for microwave popcorn that comes in special packing, you can make your own, by putting some corn in a paper bag (with salt for taste ) shake it up and microwave!

    Make sure the bag is sealed.

    There is only one rule to good popcorn. Butter. The more there is, the tastier it is, harsh but true.

    The prepackages stuff is corn kernels in a sea of salted butter inside a tripple fold paper bag.

    # Swirl the jam inside the jar using your butter knife before applying it. Will make it much easier, and you'll use lesser quantity as well.


    # store most sauce bottles upside down (cap downward). This will ensure that you get your sauce, on demand and don't have to keep whacking the bottle. Heinz for instance, makes their bottles in such a way that you can store em cap side downward in the Fridge.

    # Best remedy for cough is Honey. Nothing else. Unless you have TB or something :D

    # During a power cut, use a clear water bottle to disperse the light of your torch, cell phone LED etc. The illumination might not be as bright, but the light will reach all corners.

    # Before switching on or Switching off a light in a dark or lit room respectively, close one eye. It'll help you adjust to the dark more quickly. Same reason why pirates wore eye patches

    Not a hack but a sincere advice to all, please always cut the plastic of a 6-pack. Be it at your place or at a friend's.
