    I'd buy a die or use a buddy's before going through the effort to make a dull die. Perhaps soaking the bolt in a cleaning solution as another option. That said, if you don't have a 20 bill or one on hand along with the tools and inclination to make such little things then by all means...
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Yes, I understand there are easier ways, hell a wire brush could do it. I just thought the idea was pretty ingenious.

    More hacks please.

    <?hh

    interface User { public function getName(): string; }

    function get_user_name(?User $user): string {

    if($user !== null) {
    // We checked that $user was not null.
    // Its type is now 'User'.

    /* TODO: return $user->getName() */
    }
    return '<invalid name>';
    }

    function test(User $user) {
    $name1 = get_user_name($user);
    $name2 = get_user_name(null);
    }

    My thoughts exactly.
    I wouldn't even get my hair cut except it's near the liquor store and it seems like my eyebrows need trimming now and then.

    Youíve got nobody to blame but yourself. Word on the street is even the OP skimmed to the good parts. I heard he only watched 2:07 minutes total and still comprehended what the video entailed.

    Down to the bottom of your honey, and want to get that last tablespoon or so out?

    Put it in the microwave for 12-15 seconds. It'll pour out like water.

    Remember the Cam McCaul side-hack backflip. I think it was featured in Decline.

    Nope - had to check it out tho.



    The BMX track my son used to race at had a few of them around for loaning out just in case you could convince a few other meatheads into signing up for a hack moto. Nuthin' but comedy and carnage on those things.

    Jar of honey all crystallized? Let it (jar + honey) simmer in a pot of boiling water until it's back to liquid and then set it aside to cool gradually.

    Re-use empty chapstick tubes for super-small travel deodorant sticks. Melt an applicable amount of deodorant in the microwave for ~10-20 sec. and pour into top of chapstick tube (with the base screwed back to the bottom), set aside to cool. Need a larger amount? Use an old glue stick tube.

    Maybe not so practical for the average traveler, but I do stuff like this for ultralight backpacking. Yes, I need a slight dose of civilized living.

    Same can be done for anti-friction balms like Arm & Hammer or Body Glide.

    Nope. Try this: https://www.google.com/search?q=crys...obile&ie=UTF-8

    I haven't smelled BO in years, unless it's someone else's.

    ^ That's a really bad Photoshop hack on the still screen!

    I tried that for catching chipmunks, but minus the water. Didn't work but I may try it again next summer. Maybe too many other food options around.

    And is anyone going to watch a 17+ minute video of that?!

    Itís time to build several. And is the water meant to drown them? Or just make it harder for them to escape?

    Several years ago, a guy that I worked with brought that trick back from Da UP hunt camp, he set one up in the shop where we had a mouse infestation, used a beer can with a dab of peanut butter, rotating on a coat hanger, yes to the water is to drown them.

    We had a older Koran engineer stop by, to either buy off a job or talk about a new project, this guy was always hard to talk to, not sure why, but when he saw that mouse trap setup, he wouldnít shut up, he really got a kick out of itÖ and it seemed like we got more work from the company he worked for (Borg Warner) after that.
