This week we've got an unbelievable stunt that allegedly comes from no less than the Texas State Prison system! Thanks to Chuck Savage who sent in the following:
The Setup: Grab a cigarette. Grab a lime. (both should be in ample supply at the bar).
The Challenge: use the cigarette to cut the lime in half. No fingernails, and no other tools can touch the lime.
The reveal: soak your fingers in some cold icewater (you'll understand why in a bit). Put the cigarette in your mouth BACKWARDS, and light the filter. While the filter burns, pinch the melting fiberglass (or whatever it is) into the sharp shape of a scalpel. This will put out the flame, and, once cooled, will create a very hard, plenty sharp cutting surface for your lime!
Once you've made your "knife," simply cut through the rind along the equator of your lime. Once you make the cut all around, it should easily tear in half!

Guys, it's a fact, men are less likely than women to buckle up. In 2008, 66 percent of male drivers and 74 percent of male passengers 18 to 34 killed in passenger vehicles were NOT wearing their seat belts. Don't become a statistic...wear a freaking seatbelt.
ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT! Two thirds of people who die in accidents at night are not buckled up. You may be a safe driver but you do not know who is out there....it's not cool to not wear it.
The police will be out in force over Memorial weekend. Hundreds of State and local law enforcement and highway safety officials across the Nation will participate in Click It or Ticket 2010 from May 24 to June 6. They will be looking for you, day and night, and making sure that everyone is buckled up.
