Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

I honestly expected these all to be Pinterest fails. There are so many gorgeous Easter egg techniques out there -- and so many Pinterest tricks that fall flat -- that I was shocked these seven actually worked.

"Is McDonald's open on Good Friday?" "What about Easter Sunday?" "Is it open on Easter Monday?" These are questions our intrepid fast food reporters get asked every April. Personally, we're not sure how anybody could have room for a Big Mac and fries after all those chocolate eggs - but some Aussies have prodigious appetites.

Can you really make dyes in all colours of the rainbow with vegetable scraps and other earthy organic things? A ton of Pinterest posts claim that you can. We wanted to be sure. So we tested some of the recipes and found that some work beautifully, while others just give you different shades of brown.

For full-time Aussie workers, the Easter long weekend represents a much-needed respite from the daily grind. There's only one problem: the break isn't long enough.

If you have five annual leave days up your sleeve, it's possible to scam 12 days off work by taking advantage of the Easter and Anzac Day public holidays. Here's how.

The Sydney Royal Easter Show is one of Australia's largest annual events, with up to one million people passing through its gates every year. If you're planning to attend the event with a litter of rug rats in tow, here are some tips I learned during my own Show adventure. With a little luck, they should help you to get through the day without boring the kids or going broke.

It's nearly Easter time again, which means abstaining from meat for some and gorging on chocolate for others. If you're watching your weight and fall into the latter camp, here are some activities you can do in place of the traditional easter egg hunt.

If you have kids, odds are that you have lots of plastic Easter egg containers strewn about your home. Instead of storing them until next year or (gasp) throwing them away use them as snack containers for kids or adults.

Like most of the country, Lifehacker will be taking a long weekend over Easter -- US posts will continue to flow through but there'll be no local posts until Tuesday. If you're anywhere other than Queensland, WA or the NT, don't forget to adjust your clocks for daylight saving by going back an hour on Saturday night.
