Or like:

Save time and water by washing your clothes in the bath by never undressing!!

Ah okay thanks!

Hmmmm, well I guess one I have for work is to always refill the paper tray in the printer before I leave work*; that way you don't waste time during the day having to refill the paper if it runs out while you're printing. Especially annoying when you've only gone to print a couple of things.

I guess best thing about that one is that it also benefits other users of the printer!

So much so that my work colleague actually commented she hadn't had to refill the printer while printing something out for a while now.


So does that count as a 'lifehack'?





*Although I only usually work 2 days a week so it's effects don't last the whole week.

Lifehack - be careful when choosing a wardrobe. If you buy a week's worth of generic khaki's/black slacks and half a dozen solid shirts that go with anything, dressing is MUCH less of a hassel.

Or, for a different example, for this academic year, I have built up to a wardrobe of like... seven dresses. Three days a week I wear dresses, and the Friday is jeans and a school t-shirt. Makes getting to work much faster.


Different type of lifehack - technology - you can use lego dudes as cable holders for small diameter cables(USB/Phone), or for larger cables (e.g. Power cables), use a binder clip.

Oh hey, genuine life protip I use: Buy scented candles instead of aroma spraying doodads. They let out just a nice hint of smell over a much longer time, they're cheaper and you can light them for mood lighting or for a aroma topup (Just never leave a lit candle unatttended).

My room has a faint but persistent hint of coconut, it's quite nice.

I don't know that that's specific enough. You need to have a particular goal, and an unusual way of accomplishing it. Like: Cooling drinks. People normally use ice cubes, but then they water the drinks down when they melt. So use frozen grapes instead. That kind of thing.

Not sure if it is a life hack, but frozen grapes are a tasty treat on hot summer days.

Life hacks typically identify a specific problem or situation commonly encountered, and offer an atypical method of dealing with it.

For example: Have trouble getting out of your comfort zone when in public? Imagine people around you as Alan Rickman dressed as your grandmother.

Feel like your clothes aren't eldritch enough? Turn your patterned socks inside out, and marvel at the terrifying horrors thus revealed on your ankles.
Often outnumbered, never outpunned.

Note: in Ireland 'ye' is used as the plural of 'you'. It rather neatly avoids confusion online.

for the moms/dads of young-uns. For formula fed babies, mix up a juice jug full of formula in the morning and just heat some for each bottle. It lasts for 24 hours in the fridge.

Hey guys, I'm really sorry. I always knew this might happen but I tried really hard to prevent it. I'm gonna have to take a pass for this week, though. Grad school is already a lot of work at two weeks in, and I'm pretty anxious about a health problem currently. I'll try to get back on track for next week. Have a good one.

I propose we do an 'unoffical' one this week where we thank Fayili for putting this thing on and why we like it so much.

Okay:

Thank you Fayili for putting the time and effort to organise this "New Quest Available" for everyone. I really enjoy doing these every week as it makes me try things in the week I would otherwise not do! So thank you very much for doing this for us all! : )

Thank you, Fayili, for putting so much thought and effort into this thread. Even though I don't complete every quest myself, it's a lot of fun watching how everyone who does goes about them!

Quest #35

Inspired by my Research Methods course, where our final project is to design a research project (but not carry it out). Don't worry, I already have my idea - I'm not trying to mine for yours.

So think up a topic you'd like to see researched. It can be a social sciences sort of thing (I think my project is going to be about the impact of the family of a deaf child learning sign language), or one of the "harder" sciences (I think the soft/hard divide is bullshit but whatever). Just tell us what you'd like to see studied and why. I do want some thought put into this! It doesn't have to be something that would improve the world, but, you know, that's a good thing to try to do.

Quest starts at 18:00 GMT on Monday, September 21, 2015, and ends at 17:59 GMT on Monday, September 28, 2015.

Good Luck!
