DIY Mosquito Trap

What with Denge fever on the rise ... The WHO estimates that about 50 million new cases of dengue fever occur each year, but a recent study said the number could be four times as high due to underreporting.

Here's a clip on how to make a cheap effective DIY Mosquito Trap. You'll need water, sugar and yeast and of course a plastic bottle. Cut the bottle in half turn the top half upside down and push it in to the bottom half, there you have your trap.
I've heard that beer works as effective as yeast, if you can bare to part with it.

Despite the stab in the back by TAKEITOR, I was impressed with  this clip from DaveHax, To help make your holiday that little bit simpler. Great idea using your sunglasses as a phone holder.

Honestly, no stab intended Mr T.  My habitual sarcasm has come back to haunt me!  I genuinely loved the site for "life-hacks".  Some ideas are a bit pointless, but others will be put to good use (the 2-second shirt folding is genius...seriously...no stab!!! :salute)

Well DAVE'S back he never topped himself with the rope i give him, in fact he has come back with some more tips on how to cut a piece of rope with a piece of string.

Personally i would rather use a knife or scissors to do the job, who knows might come in handy one day.  "Pretty Cool, Huh"

Not Too Eggciting

If you think life is bad. How would you like to be an egg? You only get laid once. It takes 4 minutes to get hard. Only 2 minutes to get soft.

Here's a couple of google tips.

If you are always burning your oven roasted chicken, Google can help. Just type in set timer for X amount of time and it will start automatically. Just type  👉  set timer for 1 hour 

Also there's the old fun game in the search engine and very few people know about it.
Type Atari breakout or  g.co/doodle/uk3vrq    and start playing.

Tips & tricks

bizarre trick to automatically free up more space on your iPhone

Short of storage on your iPhone? This bizarre trick will automatically free up more space, but only if you're running really low.
All you need to do is try to rent a film from iTunes that is larger than the storage space you have available.

Your phone will automatically clear the temporary files (cache) from your device, leaving you with more space for the files you really want. It will work only if you have under 1GB of storage left - otherwise you'll just end up renting the film.

Here's what to do

Check your storage space by going to Settings > General > Usage
Go to the iTunes store and click the "films" tab
Choose a film (any will do - you won't actually get to watch it anyway), and click "rent"
A message will pop up saying "Cannot download. There is not enough storage available"
Check your storage space again. You should have slightly more space than you did previously

Ziplock bags don't exist in Thailand?  This guy obviously doesn't know.  You can buy heavy duty ones at the place opposite the old bus station.  The place that caught fire years ago.  I just picked up some Double zipper ziplock bags from Home pro today.  Even the market at The Mall sells the name brand ones, "Ziplock" from America.  This guy doesn't know what he's talking about.  he does know how to tie a plastic bag Thai style.
