No post yesterday, and light posting today as I’m preparing a teaching for church tonight. Thanks to an article in the Wall Street Journal (subscription required), however, I am happy to direct you to a new video site chock-full of helpful videos of how to do those supposedly basic things that you may not have picked up on life’s journey. You know, things like folding a tee-shirt, boiling an egg, taking a shower. There are also more arcane topics as well, such as how to care for Emperor Scorpions, or how to eat sushi and, just in time for Halloween, how to carve distinctive jack-o-lanterns and how to make marshmallow and popcorn “brain balls”.
The site is called VideoJug, and at the time I visited the “10 Most Watched Videos” in the past hour were as follows:
- How To Fold a Tee-Shirt in 2 Seconds
- How to Tie a Half-Windsor Knot
- How to Use the Shower
- How to Kiss Someone Passionately
- How to Tie a Full Windsor Knot
- How to Become Breast Self Aware
- How to Iron a Shirt
- How to Perform the Perfect Golf Swing
- How to Get Out of a Car Without Showing Your Knickers
- How to Clean a Window
Personally, I didn’t even know you were supposed to fold tee-shirts. Even at just two seconds a pop, I estimate I’ve probably “freed up” nine and a half months out of my life so far. Time, no doubt, that I probably should have been utilizing by watching the other videos.
