If you accidently left that case of beer in the trunk of your car, don’t worry they can get frosty cold in time for the big game in just a few simple steps. First, put the warm cans in a pot and cover them in ice. Next, dump about two cups of salt in and fill the pot with water. Put a cover on the pot and in three minutes you have a frosty brew before the end of the commercial break.

After taking a sleeping in for a week-long vacation or starting your new graveyard shift you can have trouble sleeping or staying awake due to your circadian rhythm. You can hit reset on your internal clock by controlling what you eat. Stop eating about 12-16 hours before you want to be awake. As soon as you start eating again you trick your body into thinking it’s the start of a new day.
