Solution To Your Everyday Problems By Science

There are tons of things we do in our daily life and not once we think of a facile way to do it efficiently! Scientists are so busy finding aliens or going to other planets that they don’t at all focus on this much needed hacks in our daily lives. Even if they do find aliens someday, would it really matter? But it would matter a hell a lot more when there is a quick fix for these common problems we face! So here we have mapped out the sciences of doing just the quotidian things efficiently!

So, here we start with the science of

1. Beating the travel sickness

The genesis behind the body enduring travel sickness is the contradiction of what eyes see and tell the brain and what the body actually feels! If you are in a car, the best thing to do is to sit at such a place where you can see the road ahead and not the interiors of the car.

2. Not making bad choice

We gotta make choices in every step of our life, be it your job, or a gift that you’re buying for someone, or even your soulmate. Sometimes it’s a piece of cake to make a pick but sometimes, well, most of the times, it’s very arduous. You just can’t seem to decide whether to go on with the option or to keep looking for better. So, in order to circumvent making bad decisions in any of your times, you need to follow the rule of thumb. It starts with weighing up the pros of the first option, but not taking any action just yet. Now you should continue looking for another offer and accept the first offer that beats the initial pending one!

3. Avoiding static electric shocks

Static shock is actually a spark or a crackling of the stationary electric charge due to friction with your body charges that have built up on your body by a set of certain types of clothes, footwear etc. These annoying charges are everywhere and ready to get us even if me make the infinitesimal mistake! Browsing around the stores, opening and closing the car doors can be a headache due to these small buddies. These small charges mostly like to congregate around round pointy objects like our fingertip. The solution is to touch metals with your palm initially and then put fingers on. Due to the flat surface of the palm, chances of getting a static shock are almost zilch!

4. Cleaving a cake evenly!

Imagine it’s your birthday and you are the only one who got the least of the cake that was meant especially for you. It feels bad, doesn’t it? Now, when it comes to distributing the cake evenly, it’s cool if there are even numbered people to feed the cake. You can just slice it from end to end through the middle and divide the quarters into further halves. But, what if the people are odd numbered? Well, geometry to your rescue folks. You must make a single cut from the centre to the edge of the cake and measure it using the length of the knife, to get the radius. Now, measure the same distance round the cake’s edge and make another cut and keep going the same way until you end up with six pieces. Or three, if you measure twice the radius and cut.

5. Keeping wires and chords from tangling

If you see headphones and USB cables and everything on a table perfectly untangled just wait for a while. When you come back and see them, they’ll be surely all tangled up with each other like they’re making love! How do they do that? It a mystery really, which even the greatest of the minds couldn’t solve! But recently they started to get hold of it after a long study and derived a way to keep them apart and unsnarled. The solution is to take the two loose ends of the cable or a wire and hook them up together with say, a hairpin. By doing this, you make them into a loop and forbid them to move relative to each other. Hence, shedding almost all the chances of them intertwining with each other!
