More life-hacking.  Here’s a cool concept — from Japan.  Keep track of little everyday things that make life easier.  Click HERE for an article to get you started (a link to a great book is at the bottom of the article).

This book saved my camera a couple days ago.  I dropped it in the snow, the camera was warm so the snow started melting before i could brush it off, the result was a really wet digital camera.  The Urawaza trick was to dump the camera in a bowl of uncooked rice (which acts like those little dry-out packets that are included in lots of electronics).  After a few hours in the rice, the camera emerged dry as a bone and works perfectly.
