I’ve learned to skip over most of the job-related articles on Lifehacker. Geared mostly towards freelance, creative or tech industry types. Some of the generic advice is OK, but whenever I see article about “Think about the font you use in your resume” I throw up a little in my mouth and move on. » 4/29/15 11:44am 4/29/15 11:44am

Can I ask what’s so bad about this? You don’t mention that the car has anything wrong with it, or was stolen, or the odometer was tampered with. Is the curbstoning dealer avoiding taxes (beyond the $75 dealer license fee?) » 4/28/15 12:33pm 4/28/15 12:33pm

I’m a side-sleeper. This means my hair gets matted down in all kinds of weird ways - often on both sides - when I sleep. If I don’t shower in the morning I just end up getting my hair soaking wet in the sink in order to fix it, and I save maybe 2-3 minutes from my whole shower. It’s never been worth it. But maybe I’m… » 4/27/15 11:04am 4/27/15 11:04am

I read everything about painting - how to avoid all the common mistakes: cutting in, not using enough paint on the roller, etc. The room my wife and I did still looked like garbage. We couldn't tell until everything had dried and by then we were too worried to come back in and do another coat and have it look even… » 12/30/14 11:16am 12/30/14 11:16am

I can lift pretty heavy but I never drift above 25 lb dumbbells for renegade rows (which seems to be what you're describing). Anything single arm/leg that includes rotation doesn't need a lot of weight before you start straining things. If you're going for heavy, low-rep exercises just stick with a general bent over… » 11/17/14 9:23am 11/17/14 9:23am

I can't separate my wife's net worth from my own...but based on our total net worth as a couple and my estimate of her earnings (with some generous rounding up just in case) we're sitting at 33% and we turn 30 next year. » 11/04/14 12:04pm 11/04/14 12:04pm

I know everyone is going to vote for the very-low cost carriers (Ryaniar, Spirit, Frontier, etc.) based on the recent trend in fare and fee structures. Yes, it's annoying if you're unprepared. But honestly, I don't know why people complain about this when you can still get somewhere on Frontier for cheaper than… » 10/23/14 7:36am 10/23/14 7:36am

Depending on how much you enjoy relaxation vs. busy night-life, I recommend staying in Oia for the former. The cruise ships dock in Fera and you'll be overrun from 8am-8pm with people rushing around town to see as much as possible. But on the plus side the town does stay open later and has some clubs and more young… » 10/20/14 2:16pm 10/20/14 2:16pm

I don't think you made a case against libertarianism, you just proved that water prices do not reflect reality. If water really is scarce it should be priced accordingly and people will react [semi-]rationally. But water prices barely budge in a drought and we rely on police and neighbor tattle-tales to restrict use… » 9/03/14 1:04pm 9/03/14 1:04pm
