A Memory Champion’s Best Mental Trick for Remembering Where You Put Your Keys

/ajax/inset/iframe?id=youtube-video-d-GTixCbXJI&start=0

If you’re tired of misplacing your keys around the house, this explosive memory trick will help you remember. All you need is a little imagination.

In this video from the Business Insider YouTube channel, Ron White, world record holder and two-time National Memory Champion, shares his trick for keeping his keys from getting lost. White suggests we misplace keys and other everyday objects because we go on mental autopilot, especially after a long day. To combat that, you need to find a way to focus on the moment you set something down.

For keys, White recommends you imagine they’re a small bomb that goes off wherever you toss them. For example, if you stick them on the counter, imagine a chunk of the counter top getting blasted out and your cabinets catching fire. This makes your brain focus on the moment of placement and associates a visual memory with a distinct physical location. After all, you can’t imagine how your coffee table might blow up if your brain doesn’t take a moment to study the environment first. Now when you need your keys, you’ll go “Oh yeah, I blew up the nightstand a few hours ago.”

Tips for Getting the Most Out of a Korean BBQ Meal

/ajax/inset/iframe?id=youtube-video-AuyptkdfYaE&start=0

If you’ve never been to a Korean BBQ restaurant before where they bring you plate after plate of food and you cook it all yourself, it can be a bit intimidating. These tips will help you get an optimal dining experience and keep you from looking lost.

In this video from the ZAGAT YouTube channel, Jonathan Angelluci, the General Manager at Do Hwa, shares some tips on how to dine at a Korean BBQ joint in style. First, place the sliced onion on the grill plate and slide it around. This will spread the onion’s flavor all over and help keep the meat from sticking later. Now, start grilling your vegetables on the sides of the grill plate. They take the longest to cook, so it’s best to start them before you grill your meat. When it’s time for the meat, grill it all near the center of the grill plate for about two minutes on each side. While things are grilling, dive into your “ban-chan” or side dishes, and feel free to snag pieces of meat to eat right off the grill. And if they give you lettuce for lettuce wraps, aim for making each wrap a two-bite affair, not an overstuffed burrito.

Brooklyn rapper Troy Ave has been formally charged with attempted murder and criminal possession of a weapon in the fatal shooting at T.I.’s show at New York’s Irving Plaza last week. 

 

Arriving in a wheelchair, the rapper born Roland Collins appeared in a Manhattan Criminal Court on Monday and asked for $50,000 bail, but a judge denied his request, according to The New York Times. He is being held without bail. 

 
 

Troy Ave was one of four people shot. One of the wounded, Collins’ bodyguard, Ronald McPhatter, died from his injuries. Read more…

Brother HL2300D Monochrome Laser Printer, $65 | Brother HL2380DW Monochrome Laser Printer, $100

Brother laser printers dominated the voting in our Kinja Co-Op for best printer, and it’s easy to see why: They basically never jam, toner is much cheaper than ink (and it never dries out if you don’t use it), and they print much faster than any other consumer-level printer; on the order of 25-30 pages per minute, even when printing duplex. The glaring trade-off is that they don’t print in color, but it’s easier to live without that than you might think.

 

http://co-op.kinja.com/brother-s-hl-l…

http://bestsellers.kinja.com/bestsellers-br…

Update: The 2380DW has sold out on Amazon, but you can get it from eBay for the same price.

The two models on sale today both include all of the advantages seen above, but the $65 HL-2300D is a USB-connected, barebones affair, while the $100 HL-2380DW adds a scanner, a touchscreen, and wireless networking, including AirPrint and Google Cloud Print. Both prices are the best we’ve seen in months, so do yourself a favor and lock in your order before they sell out.

Rubbermaid Easy Find Lid Food Storage Set, 42 Piece, $16

If you’ve ever spent more than 5 seconds sorting through your mismatched food containers to find the right lid, it’s time to throw them all out and upgrade to this 42-piece Rubbermaid system.

 

The set comes with 21 containers in six different sizes, and yet you only have to deal with three different sizes of lids, making it much easier to find the right one. Personally, I prefer glass storage sets like this one from Pyrex, but if you want to maximize the number of containers you get for your money, this is your best bet.

Little fox cub rescued from drain

Fox cubs are notoriously clumsy creatures – which sometimes leads to disastrous consequences.

 

Animal rescue workers in Cooden Beach, England recently attempted to save a baby fox cub that had fallen down a local drain. They used a phone to determine the fox’s location in the pipe, before attempting to push him out with rods and pipes.

 

The team became concerned that the fox had fallen into part of the pipe inaccessible by rods. At one point, the fox’s mother came by and hovered near rescue workers.

 

After a few hours, one of the rescue workers laid his arm down near the hole. The fox, damp and frightened, slowly climbed out. Workers cleaned the pup and returned the healthy pup back to its mom. Read more…

You can’t help but love Steven Adams, breakout star of the NBA Playoffs

The breakout star of the NBA Playoffs is a seven-foot Kiwi who hails from a town that smells like farts and has a sister who’s twice won Olympic gold in the shot put. 

 

His imposing stature and flowing mane make him resemble a Dothraki warlord. His handlebar mustache makes him look like an oversized extra from Boogie Nights. His team, the Oklahoma City Thunder, is thisclose to achieving what once seemed impossible: Eliminating the defending champion Golden State Warriors from the Western Conference Finals. 

 

His name is Steven Adams. He’s from New Zealand, but he has all the irresistible makings of an American folk hero. Better yet for Oklahoma City fans, he’s walking proof that what was once considered the biggest mistake in franchise history might turn out pretty great after all.  Read more…
