Gents - when playing music, always turn the volume up slightly higher than you actually want it

The secret to a happy kitchen
1) Fit two dishwashers in your kitchen.
2) Possess exactly the correct amount of crockery to fill one of them.
3) When eating, take a clean plate out, use it, then place it dirty in the other machine.
4) When that machine is full, and the other is empty, run the dirty machine and start moving things back to the first machine as they are used.

You never have to empty a dishwasher, or move things from the machine to a cupboard.

by not being a tragic parody of a human who lives in a bedsit, takes pictures of drug addled whores with toys up them, thinks a cartoon created to sell toys is the pinnacle of art, and thinks these things are somehow a good thing.

In the past, you turned to cigarettes as a quick pick-me-up when times were stressful — but no more.
Now you have to find techniques to deal with everyday stress in a healthier way. Physical activity—walking, cleaning the house, or gardening—can help you reduce your stress while keeping your mind off any cravings. Deep-breathing techniques or meditation can help you find calm and avoid taking stress out in less constructive ways. Whatever way you find works best for you, remember to turn to that when you need to let off some steam.

Platitudes appear more profound if you print them on a picture of Mark Twain

1) If your puny muscles aren't stront enough to loosen a tight nut using a spanner
then use a ring spanner over the open end of your first spanner to provide extra leverage.

2) Open a banana properly by pinching the bottom end; it will split in two, allowing you to peel the skin away easily rather than tugging ineffectually at the stem.

3) Writing a scathing retort to a comment on the internet? Look in the mirror, you pasty-faced wanker, and see the grotesque parody of your parent's dreams for your adulthood that you've become.

When walking through a busy underground station during rush hour
quicken your pace when some annoying brain dead cunt dragging a bag behind them is in front of you and everyone else, deliberately walk into it, on top of it a bit for drama, and then kick it with exaggerated annoyance to one side, and either feign injury or tell them to fuck off if they look at you as if they have been wronged. Other people around you will usually offer vocal moral support if they make a big deal out of it.
