I just found this a few days ago too! Good link. The banana one is stupid though. We are smarter than apes. There is no right way to open a banana, especially considering the chimp way makes it really easy for the bottom of the banana to slip out of the peel at the very last bite. Though you do end up not getting the stringy annoying things as you peel it..

The sneeze fast thing only works for 40% of the population. I can't remember what it's called, it's like photic sneeze reflex or something, it involves some kind of similarity or closeness of the nerves that deal with sneezing and light intake, so the light one triggers the sneeze reflex. I love having it tho :D

Also, the acne one. Is so fuckin true. At least for me. I started doing something similar before I found the image. Basically just have several pillow cases that you rotate for the week, so for three days use one pillow case, three more days use another, then wash those when you do your weekly laundry and use the third one for the next three days, then start over.

LOL they copied off me for the acne tip. Just to go full pro-tip, take the towel and fold it in half, flip it over the next night, reverse the fold, and repeat; this way you get 4 nights out of every towel. Also smearing cocoa butter all over your face before you go to bed prevents dirt from getting in your pores and clogging them up. Remember important things, and bibliography trick also well known to people that have common sense.

Elevator tip is epic i wanna try it out. The credit card trick is douchebaggery, someone did it to me at the ATM (probably because i was playing loud music behind them) took FOREVER for the ATM to reboot almost made me rage. Ice cold drink in 3 minutes takes 2 CUPS of salt? LOL ok no thx. Remote / cellphone camera trick worked, but the camera has to be pointed right at the IR source, it doesnt show the beam very well.

 Awesome!

Anyone know of more lifehacks? Tim Ferriss had several in the "Four Hour Work Week". 

If you get a "text to speech" program like www.neospeech.com you can copy whole books, paste the text into the program, save it as a sound file (with increased speed. I use 1.5 times normal) then listen to it when you'd normally be listening to music.
Or you can listen to the book while reading it. Absorbing the information through your eyes AND ears.
Currently I'm getting through alex's articles pretty quick with a high comprehension rate.

More life-hacks anyone?
