Tho you may know most of the tricks, there's always a little something that will surprise you. For instance, I learned how to use that extra hole for my shoelaces (and why it's there), and I learned how to keep cucumbers in the fridge for a long time, not to mention how the position of those freeway signs tells you which side you need to be on. My favorite, tho, was how you can place a wooden spoon across the top of a boiling pot of whatever, and it won't boil over!!!
