Life tips

When melting butter in a pan, add a bit of oil to keep the butter from burning.

Cooking scrambled eggs? Use 2 eggs and 1 egg yolk.

You get more egg flavor and better consistency. It's one of those things where if you make them for someone else, your eggs will just be slightly better and no one can really put their finger on why. The difference is subtle, but extreme. I know that doesn't make sense. But that's what it is.

The best tip for people who have difficulty parallel parking.

Think of your driver's side rear wheel as a pivot point, not something that moves forward/backward, but just pivots the car on the spot. When backing into a parking space, place the driver's side rear wheel in the spot you want it - typically lined up with the road-side of the car behind. When it's in place, turn the steering wheel all the way to essentially 'pivot' the car into place around that wheel. Lot's of people have trouble parallel parking because they try and back in rather than simply pivoting on a wheel.

If you are experiencing a toothache, grab yourself a bottle of 100% clove extract oil. Then take a q-tip or soak a cotton ball with the oil, and gently rub on the gums and tooth. The oil works 100 times better than ambesol or like medicine and is much cheaper. However...

Do not put an excessive amount of oil on the q-tip or cotton ball, the taste is quite strong and pretty gross if you accidentally get some on your tongue. Avoid your tongue and also no swallowing the clove oil, it won't kill you, you just won't find it a pleasant experience.Edit: As anstromm rightly pointed out, nerve damage can occur, one needs to mix in with the clove oil some olive oil, and again, do not use an excessive amount of the clove oil on the q-tip swab or cottonball.

If you work somewhere that has a tip jar, add one dollar at the beginning of the day.

It's no secret that humans have a hive mind. If they see money already given in a tip jar they will be more likely to tip themselves. They believe if other people are tipping then they probably should too.Try it out!

Your basic Arachnid warrior isn't too smart, but you can blow off a limb, and it's still 86 percent combat effective. Here's a tip: Aim for the nerve stem, and put it down for good.

If your brand spanking new pen has just stopped working, heat the metal tip of the pen for a second or two.

Make sure you get the ball point right at the tip of the flame, otherwise it won't work. You don't need to hold it in the flame for long, just a quick second should do it.Also, make sure you don't accidently melt your plastic pen.

If you have any questions if your "Tip" is actually an LPT, ask a moderator.

I'm usually always around on my computer ("perks" of being at home all day), so if you have any questions about if your LPT is actually a/an LPT, feel free to shoot me a question about it. If I can't answer, I'll bring it up to the rest of the mods here and we'll, or I'll get back to you within a day or two (depending on how long it takes us to discuss it!)...Keep up the good submissions gang, earn that Karma, and most of all have fun. :]
