    Tip 3: When getting a pretty girl drunk, keep exact tabs on how much she drinks


    ...No matter how pretty the girl is, getting rid of the puke staines and smell in your car the morning after is never worth it.

    Brilliant tips. I knew that I was on to a good thing when the idea for this thread popped into my head while I was washing my hair.

    Tip 6 - Wash your hair regularly.

    It keeps you clean and smelling nice and you get good ideas.

    Tip 7: When towelling, rub in Winter and pat in summer. The first creates a warmth through friction, the second cools with circulating air.

    It took me 44 years six months and 2 days to realise the truth of this.

    Tip 8 - Buy a bike (but avoid double suspension mountain bikes as they are hardly ever needed and slow on the road).

    Keeps you fit, cheap & economical, enjoyable - sense of freedom, cuts down on the need to use public transport, green.

    Tip 9: Do as others would do unto you - only do it first.

    Haha, it's a cruel twist of fate that I've had the worst, most vile hangover of my life for the last two days. This is the first five minutes that I've been able to stand up let alone look at a glowing computer screen, and I clicked on this thread thinking "come on, Neely, make me feel better." Now I look like this:
