Dear Lifehacker, My friend keeps telling me to stop drinking fruit juice because "it's basically just sugar". She also claims it's just as bad as Coca-Cola.

The theory of a flat earth is wrong. To the point where even typing the words 'the theory of a flat earth is wrong' is giving the "theory" too much credit.

Only one fast food outlet has openly confirmed having a secret menu -- and that's the infamous In-N-Out, which is sadly not available outside of the US (unless you make your own). So how do we go for secret menus here, in the land down under?
Making conversation seems easy enough on the surface. You talk and they talk back, right? But then you find yourself in one of those awkward situations where you're just staring at someone you barely know and you have to figure out how to keep the conversation interesting. Here are the most common mistakes we all make and how to avoid them.
Foreplay is something that you don’t even have to think about in the early stages of a relationship. Getting turned on just by holding hands and being together, leading onto kissing, stroking and then the removal of clothes for even more intimate touching - all that spine-tingling good stuff generally comes pretty naturally while you’re still getting to know each other. This guide is aimed at everybody else.
The recipe for KFC chicken used to be a closely guarded secret. However, a former KFC employee recently leaked the alleged "11 secret herbs and spices" to the world - and after extensive testing, the recipe checks out.
This video shows you how to make bona fide KFC chicken at home. (The good news is, you probably have most of the ingredients in your cupboard already.)
There are various reasons you might want to delete certain shows and movies from your Netflix viewing history. Maybe you "Netflix cheated" on your partner and want to hide the evidence.
