Rules Of Thumb

Thanks to Neatorama for pointing me to Rules Of Thumb.

It's a website that aims to collect all those little rough and ready practical methods that people come up with.

Some of them make a lot of sense, some of them are probably of no value and others are just weird or (presumably intentionally) funny.

For example ...

"Remember when choosing a prospective lawyer, a good lawyer knows the law, a great lawyer knows the judge."

"To find the most interesting books in a library, look for the shelf where returned books are stored before they are reshelved."

"A city street is most visually appealing if its width is the height of the buildings along it."

"If a polar bear charges you, dodge to the right. Eskimos say most polar bears are left-pawed."
