Life hacks are simple but clever tips and tricks to use in your everyday life. A lot of them involve solving a problem with a common object that you have lying around. For instance you can use a straw to core a strawberry, binder clips to organize cables and wires, or using a sheet of paper to make an impromptu CD case. Other life hacks show you how to use objects more efficiently, like tying extension cords together to keep them from pulling apart, peeling a banana from the bottom, and unrolling those disposable paper condiment cups for maximum dipping potential. And some life hacks are about creating culinary treats that are easy and delicious to make, like cooking cupcakes in ice cream cones, or pouring pancake batter over bacon to make bacon pancakes. The internet is full of life hacks. Some of them are more practical than others, but you need to be careful. Some of them don’t work, and some of them are totally fake and are intended to fuck with gullible minds. I’m telling you right now, you can’t charge your phone by nuking it in the microwave. You should check out life hacks if you have some time to kill. You might find a trick that will change your life.
