For certain types of people at work, it's good to remember:
The squeaky wheel gets the oil...
...but if that wheel keeps squeaking it gets replaced.
In a house or office building, it does not heat up (or cool down) faster if you set the thermostat to a higher (or lower) temperature (because the air that comes out is always the same temperature, it just runs longer to heat/cool more).
In a car or other vehicle, it does heat up faster if you turn the temperature up higher (because the air that comes out is hotter/colder as you adjust it)
You don't need a whole handful of liquid hand soap to wash your hands. A drop the size of a pencil eraser will work just fine.
Cold "medicines" like NyQuil and Tylenol do not make you healthy, they merely suppress the symptoms. A cold is caused by a virus, and there's nothing you can do against viruses (especially anti-biotics, they DO NOT HELP a cold). Taking these "medicines" only stops the suffering; it does not get rid of the virus. It's like putting black tape over the "check engine" light... you can't tell the light's on anymore, but it doesn't fix the engine. They make a cold bearable, but they don't make you healthy again.
Cold remedies, like tea with lemon, chicken soup, etc... all have one thing in common: they are hot liquids. That's really the only important part about them. My remedy of choice is to drink hot water all day, since it has exactly the same effect, but has no other chemicals (like caffeine) and no calories.
As amazing as it may sound, green bananas turn into yellow bananas (and eventually into brown ones). (I've actually heard people at the grocery store talking about "green" vs. "yellow" bananas and which were more healthy for you).
"Raw" sugar is just as (un)healthy for you as regular sugar. It's only marketing that makes you think it's different.
Sea salt is no more healthy for you than any other kind of salt. It's all salt!
A cereal that contains "whole grains" is still loaded with sugar.
"Baked" snack foods are loaded with just about as many carbs and other junk as fried ones. "Baked" does not make it healthy.
Fast-food chicken on a bun is no more healthy than fast-food beef on a bun. Especially when it's battered and fried.
When doing laundry, start the water before you add the detergent. If you add the detergent first and the water doesn't start, then you have clothes covered in soap that you need to take out so you can fix the washer.
