18 tricks to teach your body

Have a stuffed nose? Sinuses got you down?

An easier, quicker, and cheaper way to relieve sinus pressure is by alternately thrusting your tongue against the roof of your mouth, then pressing between your eyebrows with one finger. This causes the vomer bone, which runs through the nasal passages to the mouth, to rock back and forth. The motion loosens congestion; after 20 seconds, you'll feel your sinuses start to drain.

How to tell if someone is lying by their eyes

“So can the direction a person's eyes are looking reveal whether or not they are making a truthful statement? Short answer: sort of. But, it isn't as simple as some recent television shows or movies make it seem.

How to get over 5,000 TV channels for free...

Think you have a lot of TV channels. This guy gets 5,000 radio, TV channels coming from a dozen satellite receivers.

Since 1998, the Beckley resident has amassed a collection of 12 dishes around his James Street home. He said he first just began subscribing to Direct TV and Dish Network, but he later learned that by purchasing special satellite receivers he could receive “free to air” programming from several different satellites swirling the globe.

“Up in the sky, there’s lots of free stuff,” he said.Over the years, the 54-year-old disabled former ice cream salesman collected more and more dishes so he could pick up more and more “free to air” channels.

Neighbors, he said, never complained about his large display of dishes in front of his house. In fact, some of his dishes were hand-me-downs from his neighbors.

He can pick up local stations from Wyoming, Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee and Ohio. Beckley's home would likely rival most government communications centers. Not only does he pick up stations from across the country, but across the world as well. He picks up stations from Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Jerusalem and other foreign locations. Article here.

Man uses frozen turkey rescue two from car

A man witnessed a vehicle crash into a curb, and within a moment to realize the horror--the car was on fire, and there were people inside. Him and his 12-year-old son ran the half-block to help.

When they got to the car, he couldn't open the door. Inside, he could see an elderly man in the driver's seat. A female passenger sat next to him, her face white. He tried to smash the glass with his foot, but couldn't do it. In his hands, he held a 20-pound frozen turkey he and his son had just bought for Thanksgiving.

"I said, `Hell, I'll just use the damn turkey.' And that's what I did," he said. He yelled for the driver to cover his face, and used the turkey to smash out three windows.

By then, police and others had arrived, and together they pulled the elderly driver out of the car. Despite the efforts of the police officers and bystanders, both occupants, John and Juliana Brani, 89 and 90, were severely burned, authorities said.

Some quick thinking about using the resources around you can pay off… even if it means using fresh poultry to your advantage. Article here.
