Life wisdom from you and others

Kim Komando lives in Arizona, does a weekly computer radio show, has a regular column in USA today, and sends out free newsletters according to your desires. She was one of the first persons I trusted when looking for computer related advise. One of her news letters is the Cool Site of the Day. Here's an excerpt from today's email:

Today's Cool Site...

Make intelligent guesses

A rattlesnake’s strike can be up to two-thirds of its length. That means a three-foot rattlesnake can strike up to two feet.

If you get caught in a rip tide, don’t swim against it. Instead, swim at a 90-degree angle until you’re clear of it. Then you can head back to shore.

These are just two of the things I learned at today’s Cool Site. No, they’re not exactly facts. They’re rules of thumb, estimates designed to help you make intelligent guesses.

Rules of Thumb is filled with many interesting rules. You’ll learn a lot by browsing through the categories.

Have your own rule of thumb? Then sign up and post it on the site. Once you register, you can also vote on what other people have posted.
