Madness "Life Hacks"

It seems now in the "digital age" everything must be digitised.

What once was just a handy tip or peice of advice is now a "Hack"

See these hints and tips pop up online all over the place, some of them are genuinely usefull but WTF is a life hack

Just call it a tip

This indeed is one of the best rants I have read.
I hate this "life hack" malarkey.
Where will it end?
Perhaps Viz changing it's "Top Tips" to "Top Life Hacks"
Grrrrr!

Caught out on the the woods or backcountry hiking or camping and you forgot
your lighter or some matches?

Fear not! Just grab a 9V battery, some resistive wire, a switch and your
soldering kit from your backpack and you can make your very own lighter!!




Ta-Dah!!
