Let's Get Our Buttercup Priorities Straight

Let me understand this: Buttercup is untrue. She builds you up only to let you down. She messes you around.

But not calling when she says she will? That's "worst of all"??


Okay, she tells you time and again she'll be over at ten. So deal. Expect her to be late. Do a sudoku or something. You need to relax.

No Lost? No 24? No L&O's or CSI's? My Message to the AMPTP:

A Classic Commercial That Has Haunted Your Nightmares For Years

The eeriest thing about this ad is that they traveled back in time to get an 18-year-old Helen Hunt to star in it. Also, the supersized Oompa Loompas are pretty scary.

But the best part is when Business Guy gives the hand signals that mean, "I have a huge dick and it's time for my phone sex, what can I do?"

What to Do When You Have No SIgnal

In my never-ending quest to infertain as well as enterform, here are a couple of weird-but-useful tips.

I previously told you how to squeeze a little more juice out of a dead cell phone battery. But what if you have no signal? Or simply not enough bars to suit you?

You might try sticking your cell phone in your armpit for a minute or so. When you take it out, you just might have a much better signal. Yeah, I'm serious. It actually works most of the time.

When it comes to cell phone technology, I'm no Hedy Lamarr, but the way I understand it, when you hide the phone it loses its signal. Therefore, when you take it out, it is forced to find the best new signal it can.

Armpits won't help you if you want to lock or unlock your car, but you're too far away for the keychain remote signal to reach. (Or maybe you're lost in a parking garage, and want your car to chirp until you find it.)

Once again, you'll feel silly, but it works: point the remote into your chin and push. As it was explained to me, your body becomes a sort of antenna, and you'll more than double your range. Try it, and marvel at becoming one with your tech.

Tangier by Far Than the Cleveland Kind

You may have had an Asian Steamer... or even a Bamboo Asian Steamer if you've been to Thailand. But until you've done it 3-Piece style with a lid, brother, you ain't living!

If you try this at Crate & Barrel, a word of warning: You break it, you bought it.

I Have a Feeling This Place Has Terrible Customer Service
