Want someone’s number at party?Take a picture with them and ask them to send it to you.

Forgot someone’s name? Simply say “Sorry, what was your name again?” they may look annoyed, but once they tell you say “No, I meant your last name”.

Giving a presentation? Always bring a bottle of water to the stage. When you can’t remember what to say, take a drink, no body will know the difference.

To skip youtube ad, just change ‘youtube’ to ‘youtubeskip’ in the URL of any video. On “www.supercook.com” you just enter what ingredients you have and it tells you what meals you can cook and how to make them.

On lift, press close door button until the lift’s doors closes and then press floor button with door close button, it will skip all the floors and you will reach your floor.

Do you have vomiting sensation while in a moving bus?

Here is a trick to avoid it.

Be seated with a bag on your lap like in above image.

You can hug the bag tightly (to the stomach, but not to the chest). The bag pushes the stomach inside and restricts the movement of food inside.

This helps you in avoiding a bit of motion sickness and vomiting sensation in a moving bus.

I don’t think this can apply in flights and space crafts.
