Speaking of north, the shadow on a sundial moves clockwise in the northern hemisphere but counter-clockwise in the southern hemisphere.

If you are being chased by a crowd of hipsters, throw a can of pbr as far as you can in the other direction and make your escape when they mindlessly chase after it.

Fishy, that tip does not qualify for this thread. It is applicable to a very specific set of circumstances, and it is potentially life-saving should those circumstances arise. Thus, it is clearly not pointless. In the future, please take proper care with the placement of your posts. :evil:

Toothpaste can also glue posters to your dorm wall, or fill nailholes in wall before painting walls. "freshman spackle"

If you have a particularly unsightly pimple -- red, angry, swollen -- a dab of toothpaste left on it overnight has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties. In the morning, all the redness and swelling will be gone. Don't overuse this trick, though; it'll dry out your skin.

If you set fire to all the cash in your wallet, stuff a dirty sock in your mouth and hit yourself on the head with a hammer, you will awake feeling that you had a great night out drinking.

Try it! :D

If you don't have a casino in your city, convert your toilet into a slot machine by putting money into the bowl and flushing!
