Remember the old bit on the radio show where adam and crew shared small tips that make life much better, lets start a list where people add their best tips and maybe they'll bring the bit back...that's good pod.
Here's my unoriginal tip. Do yourself a favor and buy and portable electric heater and a timer. In the cold winter months, set the timer it heats up your bathroom and shuts down right before you jump into the shower so the temp goes from 65-72 degrees up to 85 ish. The benefits is less condensation fog in the bathroom and you aint cold once the hot water turns off when getting ready.

Men, after a shower, do hit your balls for 30 seconds with the hair dryer. If you put away the sack bone-dry, it will not funkify so quickly.
the more you know

I've tried this but it doesn't work with heaters lacking an on-off switch. Nowadays they're like TVs with a power button. If the heater is on and the electricity is cut off, it'll stay off when the electricity comes back (that's what the timer does). Do they still make the on-off kind?

Wrap a towel around your waist and it'll create a nice oven effect.

These threads are also worth taking a look at for more Do Yourself a Favor type advice.
Do yourself a favor I
Do yourself a favor II

Some of them are really great, some are hilarious and, of course, some of them are l.a.m.e. If you don't have any advice of your own, find your favorite and repost it here.

Yes, you can get a mechanical switch heater, they are typically the bigger ones so that means getting a good heavy duty timer will be the challenge.
It is far from safe though. Just buy a ceramic heater with an integrated timer, then it should have the proper minimum safe guards for over temperature, and almost every modern one has tip over protection.

When you work construction you get to know heaters. Either for plaster and painting or for cement.
I know heaters from little ceramic jobbies to ones that run off giant propane tanks and sound like flamethrowers because that is pretty much what they are.

If you're cold in your house, put on a god damn sweater. There's no need to ever have the heat above 68F.

Ask a female acquaintance to jerk you off with her feet. If she has a bad reaction, the whole thing is absurd enough to say you were just kidding. If she agrees: Footjob.

I took on the advice of Ace and recommend buying stock of the crap you waste time looking for. always looking for a sharpie? Buy a 10 pack and throw one everywhere you look for one.
Also good for snacks in the car. Throw a couple clif's, ritz PB crackers, etc. especially you guys up in the snow.

Check the department store for any razors and blades that are being phased out and buy all of them. Usually they’re discounted and once you run out of blades you can usually find replacements on Ebay for some great deals. I found 102 new blades for a Matrix3 razor I got for $24.99 and am covered until 2014.
This post also works on the tales from the cheap thread too.
