If you start brushing while the water’s warming up, as I suggested, then you’re really only “wasting” about a minute of time. But even then, you’re still using that minute to get your hair wet and stuff. Doesn’t seem like a waste to me at all.

okay to be honest, I was afraid people would say something like “but how are you supposed to SEE what you’re DOING” which seemed silly to me but I figured I’d put a step in there just in case someone was worried about that

Don’t you hate stepping on gum? If you spit it out on the road or the sidewalk you’re basically guaranteeing someone else’s eventual bad mood. Don’t do it.

Here’s another question from Twitter. User @jodylynnco asks: “How long is spent on patient trials of therapies like plasma and plaquenil/zpac before they are widely available and deemed suggested treatments?”

Here’s a question we got on the Lifehacker Twitter from @crisgbv: “How important is it to test massively in a country?? Does it help in any way?? Thinking of countries like my own, Argentina, where tests are not available in amounts enough for everyone...”

Nah, I don’t think so. Some people roll their eyes at decaf, but that’s just a rude person thing, not a barista/food service worker thing. Most people get that coffee just tastes good.

One of my buddies swears by these medical-looking collar pillows that allow you to rest your head when you’re not fortunate enough to get a window seat. I haven’t actually used one, but I canNOT fall asleep on planes and I would love to try one.

Hello, I am not a doctor, merely a concerned citizen. Question: When you wipe, are you keeping everything, for lack of a better phrase, tight and tensed up?

You are correct! And no, did not take forever to retrieve the under-seat bag. In fact, I think I left it on the seat when I went back so I could just grab it right as I walked by.

Ok well here’s my thing: I didn’t cut anyone in line! I would have still gotten off the plane before the people behind me anyway! It’s not like I bolted from the rear of the plane to the front. I just back-tracked a teeny bit first. Is that so bad??

I would say 2, maybe 3 rows. When the seatbelt sign went off, I stood up, walked back and grabbed my suitcase.
