Lessons I learned the hard way

  • Never use astringent immediately after shaving.
  • It doesn’t matter what it did when I was ten, my finger won’t bend that far backward any longer.
  • A pound of chicken wings or a pound of gum drops, but not both.
  • Don’t pick up a razor by the blade.
  • If it tastes a little off going down, it’ll taste even worse coming back up.
  • The power cord might be unplugged, but you really don’t want to touch that big capacitor with the screwdriver in your hand.
  • The glue on most bicycle tube patches is completely useless below 0°C.
  • When you’re trying to walk down a hill, snowshoes behave a lot like skis.
  • If you’re going to start shaving part of your body, you’d better be prepared to shave a lot more often than you thought.
  • If you feel the need to yawn while swimming, lift your head out of the water first.
  • Before you cut something with a mitre saw (or any saw, for that matter), verify that your thumb is out of the way of the blade. Every time.
