Well folks, as you all know, my good mate Cody here on ATS has created a very fine thread called The helpful thread.... tips and tricks for fellow members which can be found here :

www.abovetopsecret.com...

There is some great stuff in there and i strongly advise you all to take a peep and contribute or just quite simply profit from some of the brill ideas that can be found there.

However, it is all good and well having those helpful tips and tricks, but what about a few UNhelpful tips and tricks too?

So, without any further ado i would like to set the ball rolling :

Tip one :

If you are an antique dealer, calculate the age of old tables by sawing off one of the legs and counting the number of rings in the woodgrain. This works for chairs too!

Tip two :

Toe nail clippings chopped up finely make an ideal substitute for wood chippings when repairing wood chip wall-paper.

Fire away folks...

Kindest respects

PS. Everyone gets a star here

I sometimes stand in front of the mirror with my eyes closed so I can see what I look like when I'm asleep. Does that count?

Thats what the joke section is for Akragon... a little place to chill out and have a laugh without thinking, away from the doom porn from time to time... Especially as it is Friday... Well, it is where i live!

I will try rewinding my DVDs after a couple of drinks tonight and let you know the outcome... or send you the bill for the new DVD player


Kindest respects

I used to refurbish / restore antique furniture and i found that un-helpful tip very funny because there are folks out there that have brought me some Fd up pieces due to some bad decisions they have made.


Here is another unhelpful tip.......instead of properly restoring your 1820 french buffet, paint it with several coats of paint.

And don't forget to apply several layers of extremely strong paint stripper and scrub down with wirewool beforehand!!!

Do you reckon i can do the same thing with a car battery??


THAT is actually a pretty damned good tip (will try this weekend) and should be added to Cody's thread Jigger!

Here : www.abovetopsecret.com...

Whilst i am at it :

Fool your next door neighbours into thinking you have more stairs than them by always banging your feet twice on each stair.

Teeth dipped in sugar make excellent candy for children.

GIVE SPIDERS the nailbiting experience of a real life indiana Jones adventure by tipping them down a cardboard tube whilst slowly closing the lower end with a playing card. For added excitement roll a Ferrero rocher down the tube and hhave a friend insert cocktail sticks through the side at regular intervals.

Shandy drinkers. I've found that mixing Kaliber and Hooch makes a fantastic 'reverse shandy'.

DEVOUT CATHOLICS. If the Lord has not yet made Himself visible, perhaps you are looking in the wrong place. Try paying more attention to the flaking paint on your walls, the rust on your frying pan or the mouldy stains on your carpet as these are the sort of places where He usually turns up.

SHOE BOMBERS. Increase your payload by becoming a clown.

PRETEND to be a tiny person by pouring all the crisps from a multi-pack bag into the big bag they came in, and eating them out of that.

Can i send you the dentist bill for my youngest sibling shortly... he has just gone out and taken your advice!

And did you know that old contact lenses make ideal 'port holes' for model boats?

I got loads (thanks old copies of Viz)

SHOPPERS. When buying oranges, get more for your money by peeling them before taking them to the counter to be weighed.

WORRIED that your teeth will be stained after a heavy night drinking red wine? Simply drink a bottle of white wine before going to bed to remove the stains.

MARS BAR fans. Buy a Snickers bar and pick out the peanuts. Hey presto, a Mars bar and a handful of peanuts, all for the price of a Snickers.

I am refraining myself from spluttering my cofee all over my keyboard, so there are slight possibilities that you might find a green choked up dead Rodinus on the floor when you arrive!!!... meaning a fair bit of hitch hiking to my place for the funeral!

Thats not fair... you are reading Viz before me!!!???... *whines*

Warmest respects

Well i always seem to lose my keys. So i came up with a totally un helpful tip to superglue the keys to my hand....Its kind of a hand key thingy now, But i never did lose my keys again. Just make sure that its not your bottom wiping hand or there could be some health issues going on there...
