aluminum-foilWeird things I have had to teach Europeans, since no one here seems to know:

  • When using tin/aluminum foil: shiny side in to keep warm (since it reflects the heat waves back onto the food)
  • When cleaning a colander, invert it since whatever’s stuck in the holes is not coming out the other way.
  • When pouring beer or soda, tip the receiving container to avoid creating a (foam) head.
  • Tap the top of a can of carbonated drink to dissipate the pressure therein, thus preventing spraying drink all over everything.
  • Hyperlink: click once; Application: click twice
  • You really don’t have to type in “http://www.” before a URL anymore.
