1. Drive in lower gears and higher RPM
2. Avoid reverse gear and try to keep the car in motion in water puddles
3. After driving through a pool of water, tap on your brake pedal lightly to dry off your brakes because wet brakes do not react as quickly as dry brakes.
4. Maintain good distance from the car… ahead
5.Have extensions for the exhaust pipes to keep them out of water pools
6. Avoid service lanes when flooded because you might not be aware of open manholes or bumps.
At last if you can’t see road signs or cars in front of you, consider pulling over and wait out the heavy rainfall.

37Signals leader and Rework author Jason Fried lays out the case for why so many people are working on nights and weekends—it’s the only time they can actually work. Too many offices have an environment where not immediately responding to an IM, an email, or an just-over-the-cubicle “Got a minute?” is seen as rude or un-team-like. Fried suggests creating a culture, even if it’s just a culture of one, in which work is valued, messages are replied to at sane intervals, and nobody has to do secret day-off work.

The speed of light in a vacuum is exactly 299,792,458 metres per second.
We live on a planet in our solar system, eight light minuts away from the sun.
Our sun is four light years away from our nearest star.
In our galaxy there are about 200 billions of stars.
Nearest galaxy is 2 million light years away.
Our group of galaxies is called the local group, containing over 30 galaxies.
This “local group” covers over 10 million light years in diameter.
The “local group” belongs to the Virgo supercluster of galaxies.
The Virgo supercluster is about 200 million light years in diameter.
The Great attractor is a “gravitational anomaly” somewhere in the Virgo supercluster, pulling the other galaxy groups towards the Hydra and Centaurus constellations.

Tying my shoes. No joke. I was nearly thirty years old before I learned that “right over left and left over right makes a bow that’s tidy and tight.” Thank you, Ian!
I was always taught (and believed) that putting salt into a pot of water will make it boil faster. Apparently that’s not the case, which I learned about a week ago
Nicholson Baker’s The Mezzanine has several examples of this. The one that changed my life is tucking your undershirt into your underwear before tucking your dress shirt into your pants. Through some magic of friction, your shirt won’t come untucked anymore.

After my Logitech MX310 died, I decided to go for an enthusiast class product, Luckily I had some bucks saved this month so… Razer! Only company where Gamers are Engineers and the way they name their products is MEGaLLANICALLY AWE S O M E.
I bought a Razer Abyssus. It is a lazer mouse with no optical red light sensor but a high precision 3.5G infrared sensor. It isn’t the most expensive one, but it has almost the best performance capabilities. It has no extra mouse buttons, just 3 of them. That’s simple!

Never buy anything without at least 2 weeks of thinking and many hours of research, THEY say! but don’t think too much or you’ll never be able to buy it.
This is a delayed review, I bought this monitor probably 5 months ago. I wanted to use it before I could write how good or bad it is. I was using a 60Ton branded 21” CRT monitor and I used to move that with help of at least two or more people. I might find a photo of my old CRT which I’ll be happy to show to anyone if requested.
Here is DELL S2409W 24” 1080p Full HD LCD Monitor.
Buying an LCD for me wasn’t very easy as I had to decide between Samsung and DELL. Samsung has the most pretty outlook and finish and DELL has quality and more built-in features. The two models, actually three; two of which were Samsung are listed after a Jump.
