TBD on Ning

What are some strange tips/advice given to you by friends?

I was talking to my co-worker about how pissed my dad is about the rabbits and other critters invading his garden which he toiled over daily. She suggested that he pee in a flowerpot and sprinkle it around the perimeter of the garden to keep the critters away. She said it worked for her.


My mom told me when I was little that the antidote to neutralize a jellyfish sting is for someone to pee on the sting. I remember being stung by a jellyfish at the beach when I was around 8. I grabbed by little brother and told him to pee on the sting which he did with glee. It worked. lol

My co-worker says the best antidote is to sprinkle meat tenderizer on the sting. (muttering to myself...what crazy person carries meat tenderizer around at the beach???)

CWO, great idea for another forum thread!!!...  strangest questions/requests people asked you on the Internet.  Run with it.
Budget buster for ant problem

Melt one generous tablespoon of honey or corn syrup, add a teaspoon of Borax powder, and stir until the Borax is dissolved. Cut a small circle (2") out of the lid of a cottage cheese container or out of the lid of a small yogurt container. Put a teaspoon full of the mix on the lid and set it on your counter where the ants run. Within 20 minutes you will have a circle of ants surrounding the "banquet." They take it back to their nest to feed it to the larvae. Both ants and larvae will die. You may have to repeat once or even twice, depending on how large the nest is, but they will be gone. I use Borax as a laundry booster, so a teaspoon-full does not even cost a penny. And 1-1/2 to 2 tablespoons full of honey or syrup doesn't cost more than 10 cents.
Guys? We all know this one from our Moms: "Are you wearing clean underwear?  ALWAYS WEAR CLEAN UNDERWEAR!"


So help me, I once cut my arm very badly about 7:00 in the morning. My mom was backing out of the driveway to take me to the ER, blood squirting out of my arm, and I SWEAR she stopped halfway out of the driveway, ass end of the car in the street blocking traffic, turned around to look at me in the backseat and asked me if I had on clean underwear.


It's not like I hadn't already known that dear old Mom was a bit off, but sometimes her oddness picked the weirdest times to make itself evident....

LoL @ your story Snagg.


My parents' had family friends who I believed were hexed somehow...3  major accidents in a short span of time, and they weren't even driving.  Well in one of the accidents, the car flipped over to the side, so the rescue team had to haul my mother's friend and company out of the vehicle. Well, it so happened she was wearing an old cotton panty with hole() in it which I am sure was in full view of her rescuers. I always think of that story when I start to notice a tear in the elastic of my cotton undies.

My friend told me to slather peanut butter on the area of my hair if pieces of  bubblegum get stuck on the stands.


Also something that works.....when there is the beginning of a  run in your pantyhose, just dab clear nail polish into the area where the run ends.

I was told to pee on a wart on  my finger and it will go away.


Also to use bleach on  poison Ivy rash.


They both was BAD tips and don't do it.

The 2nd one seems painful....Was it?
