"31. Electricity doesn't move through a wire but through a field around the wire." That isn't true. Electricity is caused by the flow of electrons. I am also inclined to not believe #5 either, since our eyes to not stick out of our head, our field of vision would have to be less than 180 degrees. Also, check out dictionary.com for rhymes of orange and silver.

nice to know some new facts here. The no1 tip, chewing gum while cutting onion can help stop producing tears is very interesting and helpful. First time I heared about this. I think it will help me a little. When I call freinds for dinner I have to make a lot of food so I have to cut lots of onions too. Thats the time when I feel annoying about onion. So, I am going to try this tip next time:). The fact about raw cashews is a little scary, I did not know about this before. Thanks for sharing all this interesting facts.

Tips on keeping home clean cosistently. first get it cleaned up really good. If you have a problem with clutter, go through some stuff and see if there is anything you can pack up (winter clothes, etc), give away, throw out, etc. Then after its all cleaned up...do dishes at least every other day, laundry 3 times a week, vacuum twice a week, mop when you vacuum. Pick up loose things every night before you go to bed, sort through mail, etc, take out garbage and pick up any loose garbage before you are going to leave the house, or find something that works well for you.
