    Speedup for beginner-stage geniuses:

    2 to the 3rd = minimum complexity.

    Masterpiece: as above, thrice, in three separate dimensions: SBA

    Do not waste time on the formula for Time. Time is the currency of life, vide Hawking, S., it is equivalent to entropy.

    It helps to begin with a definition.

    ‘Almost’ boil a small cup of lemon juice (no water) in your kettle to descale it. The pre squeezed lemon juice you put on your pancakes is fine as you can buy it in larger bottles now

    No nasty chemical residue left in your kettle. Just watch the sucker as it can boil over and out of the kettle if you heat it all the way to 100 degrees.

    Brand new shiny kettle after a couple of minutes effort.

    There are more than 50 reasons for each of why someone may agree with you or not. Remember.

    One proper life hack coming up:

    If you want to remove permanent marker, colour over it with non permanent marker. Then, simply rub not one but both out.

    You, my friend, are welcome.

    Then you have to find non perm marker which you might not have... But everyone has hairspray in the house (or a colleague does at work). Spray hairspray onto perm marker and wipe, It will remove all marker ink off any solid surface.

    As for another actual lifehack, crunchy peanut butter will remove scratches and scuffs on car bumpers and non metallic panels.

    Smooth gets plastics back to black.

    Additionally deodorant can help with the perm marker issue too. I'd hazard more people have that than hairspray!

    Hairspray works better than deo, but yeah that works too.

    Amazed somebody this morning while fixing their out of line internal door.

    "What's that you're doing?"
    "I'm putting cocktail sticks into the already drilled holes"
    "Why?"
    "Because it now fills the holes with wood and you can now screw the screws in and they will hold"
    "Amazing"

    Also works with a wall and rawplugs.

    Soap. And a soap dish, like this. Lasts for ages, cheap and less single use plastic rubbish.

    Unlimited data contract with my phone provider (Three), use personal hotspot for my home internet, and cancelled my home broadband. Saving at least £30 a month (depending on the provider).
