18 Things You’ve Been Doing Wrong Your Whole Life

This changes everything.

1. Playing Monopoly.

The rules are quite explicit: If you land on a property you can buy it. If you decide not to, the property can be auctioned off to all the other players.

The bidding can start at any price. Playing by these rules shortens the game dramatically, and makes it significantly less enraging.

2. Eating chocolate digestives.

THE CHOCOLATE IS ON THE BOTTOM.

3. Eating chicken wings.

If you grab the two bones (the small one first), twist, and pull them out, you have a boneless chicken wing – a truly glorious thing.

4. Cutting cake.

You should actually cut your cake from the middle outwards if you want it to stay fresh.

5. Taking your t-shirt off.

Yes, you can do it with one hand. It’s that easy.

6. Eating Tic Tacs.

Let that groove in the lid work its magic and dispense one at at time.

7. Peeling a mango.

All you need is a strong glass and a bit of coordination.

8. Peeling a banana.

Break it at the other end to prevent it splitting and turning into mush as you try and open it.

Just snap it backwards in one easy motion.

10. Queuing.

11. Storing your t-shirts.

Turn them on their side and you’ll be able to see exactly what you’ve got and not mess up the whole drawer.

12. Using cookbooks.

Just get a temporary tattoo.

13. Taking your phone to the beach.

No need for expensive waterproof cases.

14. Buying razor blades.

All you need to do is sharpen your current blade using a pair of blue jeans.

15. Cutting tomatoes.

Place them between two plates and slice through the gap using a sharp knife to avoid making a mess.

 

16. Storing keys.

Just use Lego.

17. Boiling eggs.

If you put baking soda in the water, this is possible.

18. Cycling in a skirt.

Use an elastic band and a penny to keep your skirt in place.
