Want to convert celsius into Fahrenheit but don't have a Google machine handy? 

 

Double the celsius temp and add 30.

 

For instance, 18 celsius: 18 + 18 = 36 + 30 = 66 degrees F.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Southwest currently has a 3 day sale going on.  Round trip  to Milwaukee for my Wife and I is only 440 total.  Almost bought the tickets yesterday for an extra 120 bucks.  Might be good time to get a ticket for those thinking of Flying to one of the Ravens Road games this fall.

Is this by any chance related to that article about people being stuck sitting in the plane on the runway with a cabin temp of 36C?

Regardless, it's wrong... doing it that way says the plane was 102 degrees, when it was really 96.8, so call it 97...

 

The right way:  

(1) Double it

(2) Subtract 10%

(3) Add 32

 

So... 36 + 36 = 72... minus 10% = ~65... add 32 = ~97

 

10% is easy... and you get the right answer that way instead of the wrong answer....

When cleaning your grill grates with a wire brush before grilling, brush away from you otherwise you'll splatter grease specks all over your shirt.

Along with this, an easy way to clean your grill is to warm it up and then rub the grate with a ball of aluminum foil.

I am working with MS Excel. I'm looking for the ability for it to automatically enter the day of the week that I have the worksheet up. And in another cell, to add the next day of the week.

 

For instance I'm working on it on a Monday so in cell A1 it will print Monday 

 

A1 = MONDAY

 

And in cell A2, it will print Tuesday

 

A2 = TUESDAY

In the version of Excel I'm using (2013), if you type Monday into a cell and then drag to fill the next cell, it will automatically fill in Tuesday, and so on as far as you drag it.

A1: =TODAY()

A2: =A1+1

A3: repeat above

 

Today() will return today's date.  Change the format to custom format of type dddd to get just the day of week (or you can click a standard format that is day of week, Month Day, Year).  Make each of the subsequent cells equal to the previous cell plus one.

Where do you guys buy your jeans from? Evryone probably has a go to brand or type that fits them like a glove.

For the last 10 years or so it's been Old Navy loose fit. They are so comfortable. Duarable and affordable. Usually $25, but they always have deals like 2 for $30 or buy one get one 1/2 off.

In the last 3 months I've ripped 3 pairs of jeans in the same spot, the seam along the back pocket. Not by doing anything crazy. Just sitting down or getting up like normal. Twice in public where I have dip into the nearest Wal-Mart and buy a quick $9 tough as sandpaper pair to make it through my errands for the day.

Now I know why Old Navy offers them so cheap.

I don't invest much in clothes. But you spend so much time in them maybe I should. So where can I get solid, long lasting, comfortable jeans for under say $40 a pair?

Nautica jeans are good.

 

Lucky are also good but they're a tad pricier.

Gap jeans are solid, Express jeans are my go to. 

 

Both usually have sales, like 2 for 1 or buy one, get second pair half off. Express alone can be pricey but they're top notch.
