1 . When your headphones start
separating at the weakest part, where the wires
connect left to right, if you melt candle wax eater the
rupture point, allow to harden, then chip away
carefully any unnecessary crap. You will have a lovely
fossilized piece of loose wiring which is unable
to loosen any further, and you can pretend you have a
prehistoric mosquito trapped in amber hanging
from your neck.

couple of days, it' s probably not worth it.
9. Similarly, ask yourserf the following question,
especially when deciding between a highland part
and a regular part:
This will give me a X% increase in whatever, Y% of the

cost? Actually, apply that to everything you buy, youjust
time you lose your phone charger, don' t buy
another one. Go to a hotel and say you think you
