Let’s face it—life doesn’t come with an instruction manual. For most of us, each day is an attempt to get from one end to the other without messing up too badly or, at the least, getting noticed doing so. So it’s understandable that while we get the majority of it right, there are some common activities we’re still just trying to do our best at. The following list is a handy guide to those parts of life where the way we’ve always done it may not be the best. This entry has very little to do people’s personal preferences in the bedroom. Those things are better left behind closed doors. What it does involve is the purpose of sexual intercourse and the most common—yet ineffective—practices for doing it. Evolution also chose to focus on the buttocks of the female as an indicator of health and availability. Seeing a female from behind incites the mating instinct in males. This posture also allows for proper stimulation of the G-spot, which results in greater pleasure for the female.
It seems to be nature’s kinky plan that we should mate from a rear-entry position. The general consensus is that a good, strong lather means cleaner, more sterile hands. In reality this is almost completely backward. The confusion comes down to a lack of understanding about how soaps actually work. Soap and detergent products have chemicals in them called surfactants.
These chemicals reduce surface tension on the water and help carry oils and dirt away with them. Working the soap into a lather prior to scrubbing your skin is almost completely irrelevant to how clean your hands or skin will be afterward. Whether you just looked or not, it remains a fact that the commonly accepted shoe-tying knot is an ineffective choice. Well it’s simple: The type of knot most people use is the granny knot, which is all well and good, but it’s unbalanced, which leads to problems keeping it tied. This is why your shoe knots often lay at a funny angle. After forming the first large loop with your fingers, the next step is to wrap the other shoelace around this loop. If you wrap it around to the front, you’ve made a reef knot and properly tied your shoes. If you went around back, you tied a granny knot and should not carry any heavy objects or run on stairs.
Any woman who has ever experienced the pain of childbirth might assume that whoever came up with the method must have hated women. Despite centuries of doing it this way, childbirth was not meant to be experienced horizontally. Delivering physicians soon discovered that this was a more convenient way to deliver the baby in relative comfort, despite the pain it caused the mother. As a result, doctors have adopted this practice throughout the ages. The easiest way to birth a child, as was depicted in Egyptian hieroglyphs of Cleopatra, is a kneeling or squatting position, with gravity working in the woman’s favor. This time we’re talking about plungers, and we’re taking it to the kitchen. Most bathrooms have the common wood-handled rubber plunger made popular in Bugs Bunny cartoons. They do their job when needed, but sometimes it takes a lot of work to get the thing to work properly. The toilet plunger has an additional bit of rubber on the bottom that forms a solid seal between the bowl and the plunger itself for better clog clearing.
Not only are there different types of plungers for different purposes, they also come in different sizes for a better seal. No one likes using public restrooms. One of the most common things we do wrong in the bathroom involves how we use those paper liners they provide to make the situation just a little less scary. Since ancient times, the effort to control the spread of dysentery, cholera, typhoid, and hepatitis A has been a constant battle. Seems kind of wasteful to have that little paper tab anyway, doesn’t it? Well, it actually serves a purpose. The proper positioning method of a sanitary seat cover is with paper tab to the front, which prevents the paper from sliding off the seat and into the bowl.
It’s still a little gimmicky, but it’s a much better option than the stone bench apparatus the Romans worked with. Named for the bobbed haircut that was popular in the 20s and 30s the bobby pin soon became a mainstay in almost every woman’s beauty arsenal. The wavy edge of the standard bobby pin was designed the grasp the hair and keep it from falling out. To be most effective, the pins need to be placed flat edge out. Twisting the hair prior to placement can help keep the pins in place. Having those elusive six-pack abs seen in TV commercials would make just about anyone feel more comfortable in their own skin. The strongest, leanest abs in the world will be completely surrounded by a layer of subcutaneous or visceral fat—you wouldn’t be able to see them. Studies reveal that moderate to intense exercise and a healthy diet are the keys to shedding the extra fat and allowing the abdominal muscles to show through.
If you go into your kitchen right now, pick up a banana, and try to peel it, no doubt you will do what humans have done for as long as any of us can remember. You’ll grab that convenient tab on the top and yank it to the side, splitting the peel in half. Believe it or not, you’re doing it wrong. It’s pretty legitimate to assume that animals who rely on this food for their survival are the unsurpassed masters of banana opening. This method pops the brown part of the banana off and pushes the whole banana out the end. So why are we such ineffective banana peelers? The source of this confusion probably lies in the fact that bananas actually grow in a position we would consider to be upside down, because the stem is attached to the tree and fruit grows downward from there. Koko has probably been laughing at us the whole time. Without getting too graphic, there’s a major difference between the posture most adults use when answering nature’s call and the way nature herself intended.
