3 Tapping Glueless Laminate Floor Installation, a Must-See


Did you know that glueless laminate floor planks have more than one tongue and groove? How does this affect the installation? If you are familiar with hardwood floor installation, and you thought laminate floor installation is easier, you could be in for a big surprise unless you take the time to study the floor locking mechanism before you start. Therefore, using the most common kind of glueless-click laminate flooring, we illustrate the tongue and groove locking mechanism and an easy-to-remember 3 tapping installation procedure. To complete the process, we will discuss how to modify this 3 tapping method under a few special conditions or configurations. If you have flooring with a different kind of locking mechanism, based on the process described here, you can easily modify for your own 3 tapping method.

4 Step Minimal Waste Time Saving Laminate/Engineered Wood Installation


How can you have almost zero waste when you install laminate or engineered wood flooring? The laminate flooring salespeople recommend allowing for at least 5% waste. Still, when I installed the flooring from left to right, often I found the right plank was too short and I had to undo the whole row and start all over again. Thus even figuring I will waste 5% of materials (thus money), I can not guarantee I will not also waste time.

In this video, I will show you a very easy simple 4-step process that will not only allow you to save the material (the money) but also the time. In fact, the layout of the whole room can be predicted before the actual installation.

3 Key Factors To Speed Up Oil Extraction-Engine Oil Change


If you use the method of oil extraction, one big concern is the long time to complete the engine oil change. I will share with you 3 key factors to speed up your oil extraction as well other tips to make the engine oil change easier.

The most difficult DIY oil change is getting underneath the car to drain the old oil, and most people hate sliding under the car and getting their hands covered with dirty oil. Also, wrestling with a stubborn drain plug bolt is a common problem and risks damaging the oil plug. Now these are no longer issues, and I also make the DIY super cheap (it’s free) and fast! Please share it with your friends.

Oil extraction additionally has advantages if your oil filter is mounted on the top, and it removes the possibility of removing the drain plug only to have hot oil gush onto your hand. We think the oil extractor makes the operation easy, but if you do decide to do the traditional way, we have a different video to make it a little easier for you: https://youtu.be/S0Ndn4rdBMg Maybe some people will still do the old-fashioned way, but I hope this method will enable other people who otherwise would not DIY.

Some people may question the advantages of this method. You may not get all the oil out, you may not remove all the debris out etc. The counter argument is: but the oil filter will hold most of the debris. The oil is changed hot which means the debris doesn’t really have time to settle. Plus no matter what you do , there is still oil left in the engine, oil left in the pan. What do you think? Is draining better? Do you get most oil out? Does 2 cups of oil left in the engine really matter? Post your thoughts in the comments below.

5 Different Ways To Make Your Toilet Use Less Water


In addition to flushing one tank of water, my experiment showed another 3 liters of water flowed to the overflow tube. I was very surprised to discover this. I will provide a zero cost fix to this problem. I will provide 5 different ways to save on water used in toilet flushing. These techniques are based on the amount of water the toilet tank releases, assuming the toilet bowl is efficient. Watch this video to see the efficient toilet siphon effect: https://youtu.be/_EP7LZdnMXo Note that if your toilet bowl is not efficient, reducing the water flushed may not clear the solid waste well, you may have to flush twice. So one of the best techniques is to have a dual flush system which uses more water for the solid waste than the liquid waste. See the explanation and installation of the dual flush system: https://youtu.be/1RDGznJm-U8

You won’t need to waste water repeating my experiments, instead watch this video, share to as many people as you can, favorite it, like it, so that we save water.

6 Ways To Eat Dragon Fruit


Have you ever tried Dragon Fruit? I will show you six ways to eat a fresh Dragon fruit. Dragon fruit is a little funny looking, the skin is yellow or red, and bumpy. I expected to find a big pit in the middle, but was surprised to find no pit, just little soft crunchy seeds, kind of like the seeds in a kiwi, but a little bigger. The flavor is not strong but nice, like a really good honeydew melon. Note that you shouldn’t eat the skin because it has mild laxative properties :).

Embarrassing Exposure Using StarTrek Like Bathroom/Toilet in Germany


I had the most embarrassing exposure when using a Star Trek like bathroom/toilet. It happened a few days ago on a train to Hamburg, Germany. This train is equipped with a spacious sci-fi looking restroom. Don’t be fooled, it’s not that smart. It does not detect if someone is inside bu I was too impressed by appearances to use it correctly. You can say that I am not very smart but my observation was that other people who do not know German language may also have the same problems. I am sharing my embarrassment with you here now so that you can avoid being the next joke of the day. By the way, the German word verriegeln means “lock.”

3 Ways to Eat Raw Guava Fruit


Have you ever tried a Guava? I will show you three ways to eat a fresh Guava. Even though some may prefer to cook or turn it into juice with their blender, guavas are still best eaten in their raw form. Some may prefer to eat with sugar, salt, pepper, soy sauce or vinegar, but I prefer to eat raw.
A Guava tastes much like a pear. The skin does not taste the best but it has vitamins. Some people eat the seeds, but I find them to be very hard and you have to swallow them,while they don’t provide any health benefit.
