Fish hooks can be dangerous to work with, especially if you're inexperienced. An empty dental floss dispenser can keep the pointy, barbed end away from your fingers while you tie on your line. In this video from the MAD Science Hacks YouTube channel, you'll learn a clever way to repurpose something you'd normally throw away. On your next fishing trip, you can pop the container open, lock a hook in place and tie a line on without worrying about hooking yourself. Then, once you have your knot tied, you can cut off the excess line with the tiny metal blade. The key here is to get the right kind of dental floss container. You need one that spools out floss through a small hole and has one of those tiny metal blades for this to work. This is a great trick for those new to fishing, like kids, or for those who like to crack open a few cold ones while they fish. Otherwise, you may accidentally catch yourself, and that's not a good time.

Since then, a swathe of additional sites have been added to the block list in a bid to eradicate piracy. Torrenting itself is completely legal of course, and it's not all that difficult to circumvent ISP blocking of torrent websites. For instance, you can do it through a VPN, which often requires a monthly subscription fee. Here are some ways to gain access to blocked torrent sites for free.
Dear Lifehacker, I am desperately in need of some relationship advice. I am infatuated with a young lady who works at a fast food outlet I frequent. I am forty-one and have never had any kind of a relationship or even been on a date. I had viral encephalitis at 14 which pretty much destroyed my self esteem, but I've decided to stop procrastinating and get on with my life. I really want to ask her out, but it's an extremely difficult situation because she is behind the counter or around other staff 99% of the time! What do you think I should do?
