If you see an ad online for one of those windshield wiper shaving machines and feel fascinated, talk to a male acquaintance about borrowing a used disposable razor. (Shaver, some call them, to distinguish the apparatus from the knife itself) It will do the same job for free. Got me through university on two sets of windscreen wipers.

That said, get a job. buy new wipers. That be the advice behind the tip.

Also on the subject of ads for crap you don't need, no, TV Frog is not a total scam. It WILL turn your dumb TV into a smart TV. No such thing as free cable though, that part is utter bollocks.

Moral here being, "get a job. Buy a smart TV," I guess. Heh... Sticking to some unintended subjects here. Nice... Nice.

More Gray Wisdom, you say..? Lemme see...

Barcode readers can be useful in "dialing" numbers and emails on Skype/Jabber/etc. Does require a tiny bit of effort to set it up, but The Asmo likes His complicated phone book.

When surfing the web abroad, go to whatever passes for a 7/11 there and get a local pre-paid 4G WiFi subscription. That, or STOP CALLING THE BLOODY ASMO FIVE TIMES A DAY OVER AN INTERNET BILL OF NOK 1800,- DAMN YOU! /end caps lock

Milo Yiannopoulos' book is not at all bad so far... Might even review it here later. Still, if you are the kind of person who gets outraged by a troll... Avoid.

Also, Luxembourg is evil. Avoid.  >:(
In Asmo's grey lump,
wrath and dark clouds gather force.
Luxembourg trembles.
