    Lemon applied to the skin will... err... make you smell of lemon. :)

    If you need to find north (or any compass direction) but left your compass in raspy's pot and refuse to ever touch it again, here's a trick that no one believes works until you show them:

    Point the hour hand of your watch at the sun. Half way between the hour hand and 12 is South. It's up to you to extrapolate the other directions and to compensate for DST.

    If you have a digital watch display, this doesn't work as well. Oh, and except at 6 o'clock, take the shortest way back to 12. You people. :rolleyes:

    If someone tries to intoxicate you with chlorine gas (or if you accidentally mix bleach and ammonia), a piece of clothing soaked in urine can act as a gas mask. You better not stay here nonetheless.

    Slowly stroking a lemon will make the rest of your fruitbowl quite jealous. :)

    If you find the latter occurring often, you should pay more attention to the labels telling you never to do this.

    If you find the former occurring often, you need a new set of friends!

    Several lemons - threaded together on a piece of string - make a handy chunky-style necklace to match a yellow outfit. :)

    <Since someone seems so enthralled with lemons lately--even affixing a face to one and putting it at the end of his post--PDA Bach finds this perhaps-useful tip:>

    Thinking about it:

    If it is 6 in the morning then you want to use the 9 as South, if it is 6 in the evening then you want to use the 3 as South.

    Also one needs to be careful in the late spring or early summer in the early morning or late evening. In those cases South maybe the long way around to the twelve. However, in those case just rely on the basic, "the sun rises in the east and sets in the west."
