Did You Shrink Something in the Dryer? Use Conditioner to Unshrink It
Have you ever shrunk your favorite shirt in the dryer, so now it's your favorite RAG. Well, if it ever happens again, you might be able to UNSHRINK it using something you have in your bathroom. You can use HAIR CONDITIONER to unshrink anything made of cotton. Here's how to do it . . . 1. Fill a bucket with lukewarm water. Then add a few big squirts of conditioner, and mix it in. You can also do it in the sink. 2. Toss the piece of clothing in there for 15 to 30 minutes and let it soak. The conditioner should help the fibers loosen up and expand. 3. Take it out and gently squeeze the water out of it, but don't twist or wring it out. If it's full of conditioner, you can rinse it a little, but not too much. 4. Gently stretch it out . . . lay it out on a clean, dry towel . . . and roll it up. Rolling it should keep it in place, so it won't shrink back down. 5. Wait until it's mostly dry, and gently stretch the fabric again to get it back to its original shape. 6. Lay it out on another towel until it's fully dry. You might need to roll it up or weigh it down with something again, just to make sure it doesn't shrink. But hopefully, you'll end up with a shirt that fits again. (Lifehacker / Speed Queen)
Apple's Weather App Won't Say It's 69 Degrees
If Apple fixes this in their next update, they should have NFL star Rob Gronkowski announce it. It's his favorite number, so he'd probably do it for free. Someone realized that Apple's weather app won't tell you if it's SIXTY-NINE degrees out. It'll either say 68, or jump straight to 70 degrees. So are they against eighth-grade humor? Or is something else going on? There's one explanation that does make sense, and doesn't involve Apple hating on the number 69. They might just be sourcing their weather data in CELSIUS, and then converting it to Fahrenheit. 20 degrees Celsius is 68 degrees Fahrenheit. And 21 degrees is 69.8, which would round up to 70. Two Out of Five Americans Would Reject a Trip to the Moon, Even with a Guaranteed Safe Return
It seems like billionaires are falling over each other to shoot themselves into space. And unlike most of the other stuff rich people do, we are NOT envious. A new survey asked if you'd want to go to the moon . . . if your safe return to Earth could be GUARANTEED. Even then, 42% would turn it down, while about 50% would go. Men were much more likely to want to go than women . . . and millennials were far more likely to say yes than Baby Boomers. The people who said they were NOT interested were asked why, and the most popular response was: "I don't want to go to the moon." Fair enough! Others turned it down because: The moon would be boring . . . they're scared . . . fear of flying . . . fear of heights . . . claustrophobia . . . they're "too old" . . . there's "no point" . . . and some just couldn't get past the unrealistic safety guarantee.
