Great tips! The one about the straw in the soda can reminded me of my trips to NYC. Each time I brought a can of soda there I was given a straw while here in SoCal you have to ask for it if you want a straw.

I'm going to use the tip about the ear phone cord. So simple but looks like it would work.

Those were good, thanks for sharing.

I had posted about the left and right exit side signs in another forum several years ago that generated some good responses.

Another good tip, that I had read somewhere...was how to test to see if your electronics remote control is working (ie checking batteries).

First turn on your cellphone camera. Then, all you have to do is aim the infrared remote at your cellphone camera and press any button. Your screen will show up the light emitting from the infrared transmitter.

The guys and I tested this up here at the shop, and it works. We got a big kick from it.

They say the same technique will also work with security cameras, so you can see it's infrared lights.

Weird, it didn't redirect for me. Just sits there and says URL not found. Otherwise I wouldn't have bumped this thread.
