The Pro-Tip Thread
« on: October 04, 2010, 03:18:33 PM »
This thread will, eventually, contain a lexicon of invaluable pieces of informational tidbits and advice for living in our modern world. Take, for example, the below;

Always use big words. Makes you sound real smart. ;)
Always roll when taking a drop. Seriously. Broken knees aren't fun.
Never have chlorine bleach come in contact with ammonia, or vice versa.

(Honestly? All I can come up with at the moment. A little tired :P )

yes, we may now close the thread because this will be the most useful advice in the whole thread

On-topic
I once found a place that had a HUGE list of tips like these. The thing is I lost it in the interwebs and can't find it. so that leads me to tip one
1. don't be a dumbass
2. if you ever want fresh fries when you go out to eat ask for them with no salt. They will have to make up a new batch because most fries have salt already on them.
3. How to pick up a hooker without getting arrested....  :-Sarcasm

Always think you're the best at what you are.

Seriously, apparently it helps you in heaps of aspects of life, and it's been proven to allow you to do singing and screamo better. Weird.

I think you should do a little research into this. Several sections of our Freshman writing class just did essays on this exact topic. Research shows that this simply promotes egocentricity. Self-esteem must be in relation to other people. Also, why build yourself up to something you know isn't true?

Pro-tip: DO NOT. f#ck WITH ME.
Rely on yourself. Rely on your body. Rely on your training, instincts, and heart. Everything else is a crutch.
