"Fire safety for real trees depends heavily upon properly maintaining the moisture content of the tree as high as possible". See a recipe for what Christmas trees like to drink to stay fully-hydrated:
- When done with your razor, grab a dry corner of a towel between your thumb and fingers.
- Roll your hand over so the towel is upwards, held securely by your thumb.
- Swipe the razor on the towel three times, away from the direction of the blades (if you go the other way you'll try to shave your towel), pressing down firmly.
That's it! Keep your razor where it won't get wet accidentally, dry it each time you use it, and enjoy the savings on razors and reduction in bleeding.
Solution: take an apple out to eat, and at the same time take another one and put it on a fridge shelf at eye level.
Problem solved! You're welcome, world.

As far as surviving a nuclear war, Hollywood got some things right and some things wrong. No, you can't ride the blast out hiding inside a refrigerator. Yes, you can make a hazmat suit out of a shower curtain and a soda bottle gas mask

My exact method for eggs:
- although most pressure cookers come with a steamer tray or rack, I lost mine, so I got one of those folding metal ones [link] and put that in the pot
- loaded a dozen eggs into it, and added approx. 1 cup water
- put on the lid, with the vent in the closed position
- started the cooker in manual mode, high pressure, set for 5 minutes
- the device warmed up, hissed for a bit until the pressure built up, and then began timing 5 minutes, beeping when done and reverting to Keep Warm
- I let it sit like that for 5 minutes, then released the pressure, and used tongs to move the eggs into an ice water bath to stop the cooking process
- peeled one, very nice! put the rest back into the egg carton with "HB" written on it and put them in the fridge; had another a few hours later, still easy to peel and perfectly done
I made it using an electric mixer, so the beans weren't completely mushed, there was some nice texture to not having them completely blended.
I read somewhere that hummus is made better by adding sour cream, and that works even for packaged hummus, and also for this.
I made another batch with refried black beans, and some chopped onion and only light mixing, and that is maybe the best batch so far.
I read a Tweet once that said "I feel good knowing I've put so many of the Sabra kids through college." :-)
I have no affiliation with Bush's, an have received no recompense for this post; I'm just a person who has tried to like hummus, and now knows how to make really good hummus.
