An Hour’s Worth of 5 Minuteses #FridayRecommends

This week, I’ve been runnin’ sideways to keep from flyin’. But I spent nearly an hour watching this compilation of life hacks.

Oh, children, MomGoth loves her some life hacks! Tell me a better way to husk corn or ten uses for empty toilet paper rolls and I’m a happy camper. So long as I don’t have to actually, you know, camp. ‘Cause I hate that.

So I stumbled upon 5-Minute Crafts’ YouTube channel, and there I was. Watching this compilation of so. many. hacks! I was like, wow! wow! wow! Some of them, I’d already seen swiped by Crazy Russian Hacker, who I actually prefer, because he takes, like, five minutes to show you a three-second hack. He kills me.

ANYWAY, this week, I recommend 5-Minute Crafts. Go find out how to open a corked wine bottle without a corkscrew. I mean besides breaking the neck of it off across some belligerent drunk’s head in a free-for-all bar fight.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write about an unusual use your character makes of a common object. A Macgyver, if you will.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    One of the French speaking bloggers I follow has a vineyard and they make wine anyway, she showed how to uncork a bottle of wine using a book, a wall, and the corked bottle. It was amazing that hitting the bottle on the book that she held against the wall worked!

    Going to click over and see the hacks.
