The 6 Most Badass Skills You Can Learn in Under a Week Become a Human Lie Detector Any secret agent worth his hidden cyanide pills is going to have to be prepared for intense negotiations. Whether you've captured a deadly SPECTRE double-agent working as an MI6 janitor, or are just buying a used car, you've got to be able to tell when the enemy is lying through his teeth to you, and how to best disguise the fact that you're lying through your teeth at the same time. Also you can be like that guy in Lie to Me, for the few of you who watch that show. The Coursework: This particular double-oh technique has been cleverly disguised as a business management lecture lasting only a few hours, steeped in the psychology of human information processing and body language. Liar!! Then you can watch as paranoia creeps in from the corners of your mind, slowly replacing lesser human emotions like "trust" and "compassion." In fact, there is a class just for you...

10 things in your car you didn't know you could fix The complexity of modern vehicles makes some projects a no-go for newbies, veteran Portsmouth, R.I., mechanic Paul Roderick says. Don't try to replace fuel or water pumps (because of their inaccessibility) or the shoes in drum brakes (because of their mechanical intricacy) unless you really know what you're doing, and "forget about electrical problems, unless the problem is a blown fuse." But, Roderick says, there are still plenty of auto DIY projects, like these, for weekend warriors. Changing Disc Brake Pads Changing worn-out disc brake pads is a straightforward job. When it's time to change the pads, make sure you have jack stands, basic hand tools, and a C-clamp (to push the caliper piston into its cylinder) on hand. Replacing the Alternator In most cars, a warning light will tell you when the alternator is dying. To do the job, you'll need wrenches, including a socket wrench. Replacing the Oxygen Sensor Replacing the Idle-Air-Control Valve or Sensor Changing Headlight Bulbs

How to Watch Blocked Internet Videos « Broken Secrets September 27, 2010 at 5:00 am Chad Upton By Chad Upton | Editor The internet is a great place to catch TV shows and clips that you or your PVR missed. Unfortunately, a lot of websites only allow their video content to be viewed in their service area. It’s not because they’re mean, they may have contracts that prevent them from distributing outside their area, not to mention cost savings reasons. That’s right, it’s expensive to stream video over the internet to thousands or hundreds of thousands of people in a reliable way. Secondly, they may not be allowed to broadcast outside of their broadcast area. There are also legal agreements with members of various guilds and unions that may prevent content from being distributed in certain areas or for a finite time after the original air date. Broadcasters can identify which country you’re in when you access their website. I think there is at least one ethical use for circumventing regional lockouts.

Small But Powerful: 30 Useful Apps Under 2MB - Page 1 SpaceSniffer is so much nicer than WinDirStat in my opinion, faster and more helpful. I love it. Everything search engine is also quite amazing, so fast. I only wish there was a way to replace Windows search with it. You can replace Windows Search with Google Desktop, I'm sure theres a way to do it for Everything... If anyone finds out, please tell me. I've been using CCleaner since probably 2006/2007. uTorrent of course is a favorite :D I could never understand why BitTorrent was like 10MB when uTorrent was 200kb and had more features than BitTorrent does. 7zip is great, I recently downloaded an item customizer for it, it's much nicer to use now. I think ColorCop is a pretty nice program, I'd been using Pixie by Nattyware since then. Hamachi is great, many uses all around. I recently used Memtest86 and found out one of my 2GB modules was not fried, it was only the other one. I haven't had a chance to try Greenshot yet, but it sounds great. Edit: The VM was causing it not to work.

untitled How can I make $12,000 for next 6 months? How to Get a Used-Car Warranty (and Not Get Screwed) (Photo by fotog/Getty Images) It's Eric Anderson's job to know how much it costs you to own a car. And number-crunchers like Anderson, a senior analyst at IntelliChoice, know more than they ever have before—thanks partly to the proliferation of certified preowned (CPO) programs that nearly every carmaker in America now offers. These programs offer extended service contracts as part of the package when you buy a used car, which means, among other things, that all the repairs are tracked—and tracked in the same way that repairs done under new-car warranties are. Anderson's math helps guide IntelliChoice's Best Overall Value of the Year Awards. Figuring out whether to buy a warranty on a used car, or how to do it, can be a tangled mess. Go CPO Certified preowned-car warranties provide peace of mind because factory warranties are backing the product, but Anderson says there's another crucial factor: manufacturer vetting. Like any insurer, carmakers want to insure mostly healthy patients.
