Solutions to Common Problems - (Cut out and put this on fridge.)

    Just received this in an email.
    Love the daily thought at the bottom :-) Eric G.
    =================================


    AMAZINGLY SIMPLE HOME REMEDIES

      1. Avoid cutting yourself when slicing vegetables by
      getting someone else to hold them while you chop.

      2. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the
      toilet seat by using the shower.

      3. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut
      yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing
      the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.

      4. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock,
      will prevent you from rolling over and going back to
      sleep after you hit the snooze button.

      5. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of
      laxatives, then you will be afraid to cough.

      6. You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct
      Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40.
      If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

      **Daily Thought:**
      SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE SLINKY'S. THEY'RE NOT REALLY
      GOOD FOR ANYTHING, BUT THEY BRING A SMILE TO YOUR
      FACE WHEN PUSHED DOWN THE STAIRS.

    Priceless..
    I am always (mildly) distressed that some of these brilliant things omit the byline. If I had thought of them, I would want my name attached. I also would like to see an attached name.
    Unfortunately, this is not always possible. The brilliant humor is still appreciated.

      I totally agree, and wherever possible I do this.

      However, when you receive stuff forwarded by email, without any author detail, it's not really possible.
      So about all I can do is give some indication that I didn't write it.
      (Or maybe put "Anonymous" at the end. Like I've added now) )

        I've seen this before, but forgot all about the Slinkys ... and hoo-boy, did I need that reminder.  It's been a total Slinkfest in my little corner of the world, the last couple of days!  But I digress ...

        One way I've learned to get around the attributions thing when I have not a clue where something came from, is to add something like, "Found on the Internet/wherever.  If you know the source, please let us know."
