Would you like to share a piece of advice with Fluther?

Asked by SuperMouse (30845points) August 7th, 2009

I learned an important lesson this morning and I thought I would share it with the Collective. Don’t make bacon in your Fluther t-shirt. If you do, you are likely to get grease on it that might not come out in the wash, your Fluther T will be stained, and you might break down and cry. Do you have a good piece of advice you would like to share?

Wrap your celery in aluminum foil before you put it in the fridge. It will last a long time.

Never blast the CIA on Fluther. It may just be last thing you ever do.

Stretch thoroughly before strenuous activity.

Never post pictures you wouldn’t want your grandma to see.

When you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.

@eponymoushipster And don’t tug on superman’s cape.

When storing cheese put it in a plastic container with a small sugar cube. The cube will absorb the moisture which would otherwise cause the cheese to become bacteria ridden and thus shall make it last longer.

@chyna, don’t pull the mask off that old Lone Ranger!

Use M30 stain remover on that grease stain. Rub it in and let it sit over night. Wash in the morning and the stain should come out. You can buy it at Dollar General.

Also, rubbing Dawn dish detergent on your clothing can get out grease spots.

@SuperMouse And you don’t mess around with Jim!

Don’t remove hangnails or ragged cuticles with teeth.

Pull out rose thorns stuck in arm immediately with tweezers.

Make sure cat is not enclosed in unused bedroom when you go to sleep.

Don’t make anything that requires 2 sticks of butter, 8 eggs and 2 cups of heavy cream.

Here’s some mod-related advice:

When posting a question, make sure that what you type in the “Question title” box actually spells out your question. It shouldn’t just be a 3-word teaser to entice people to open the question and see what’s inside; it should give some idea of what you want the collective to tell you, then use the details section to expand and provide specifics. Chances are it will get pushed back for editing otherwise.

Don’t ride your bicycle into a dog. Don’t attempt a waltz jump the same way that nine year old girl does it if you are 52 years old and this is the first time you are on the ice for the season. Don’t let communication with your intimate partner lapse into sullen silence.

Also don’t make bacon naked, you will get grease splatters on yourself and that really sucks!

One piece of advice I would give to everyone is the importance of a clean kitchen. Fridges should be fully cleaned out and disinfected once every season. I’m amazed at how many dirty fridges I come across and how confused people are when they get ill…

IchtheosaurusRex's avatar

@dynamicduo , there are different interpretations of the term “Makin’ Bacon.” I prefer doing it naked.

But to pass along advice: Don’t attract snark by posting ambiguous questions.

If you break the bed during sex… carry on. If you then roll off the bed, laugh.

jeanna's avatar

Don’t piss off the people that cook and serve you food. This can be applied in any home, as well.

Always offer to do the dishes.

Don’t be patronizing; you’ll only end up making an ass of yourself.

If you want to confuse someone, just paint your fingernails a very dark color. Black works best. Bonus points if you’re a guy and wouldn’t normally paint your nails.

Learn to laugh at yourself.

The best advice: Don’t take advice from strangers. ;)

tinyfaery's avatar

Don’t cook bacon in your bra, either.

Sarcasm's avatar

Yeah. Cook it without a bra, instead.

When your absolutely sure your right in an arguement, stop. Find at least one thing you can grant or apologize for or concede to the other person and do it without reservation or a “but”.

Learn that being wrong is not a big deal. Nobody keeps track. The more often you are wrong now, the less often you will be in the future.

janbb's avatar

@Bri_L That’s great advice. Now I have to learn to do it!

Bri_L's avatar

@janbb – It really is easy. When I stop, I am amazed how I can ALWAYS find something I can say. Even if it is the tone of how I made my point. Or the little unneeded comment. I always find something. I just wish my wife was as good at the technique. Or practiced it at all. Or even heard of it.

YARNLADY's avatar

@gailcalled Are you sure you don’t have that backwards? We always want to make sure the cat is locked in an unused bedroom so we can leave the windows and the dog door open.

Sarcasm's avatar

My cats would meow all night long pawing (luckily, declawed) at the door if they’re shut into a room over night.

RareDenver's avatar

@Sarcasm you declaw your cats???

Well I’m not surprised coming from a nation that thinks nothing of circumcising their own children!

Supacase's avatar

@YARNLADY I left my two cats alone in my parents’ bathroom while we were visiting one weekend. Hard to take a shower with a shredded shower curtain. :)

If you kill a hooker and eat her flesh, bury the bones in your neighbor’s yard instead of your own.

@derekpaperscissors – hehe. Along those lines, that chair wont hold that door open.
