I just don’t get how some of this stuff can be called “life hacks”.

Whipped cream is merely a pit stop on the road to delicious home-made butter. But it is indeed on the way.

Are you saying finding an easier way to chop an apple in half with your hands wouldn’t a life-changer?

Yeah, I’m guessing that I’m probably not the target audience for this stuff. Who wastes vodka by using it for sticker removal?

Ooo… that’s the very same clip I learned it from.

I enjoy the series, not because I care about any of the “life hacks,” but because it’s fun to watch John Green fumble on basic tasks like cutting an onion.

Any method for making butter will produce whipped cream first. Its part of the same process. You agitate the cream the fat molecules knit together, trapping air and give you a foam. Take it too far and the fat molecules give up on the air and collect up together giving you butter. The issue with making whipped cream in a jar/bottle is that its going to take significantly longer than doing it with a whisk, its going to be way less even, and it’ll be less controlled. So you’re more likely to end up with butter than with whipped cream. And if you do manage to stop at the whipped cream stage you’re probably gonna have some weepy whipped cream floating on top of some un-whipped liquid. We used to do this a lot as kids, to make butter. Any time we stopped early to see if we had whipped cream that whipped cream was pretty gross.

Under what circumstance is a half of an apple the desired outcome? I understand biting into a whole apple, eating slices on their own or with cheese or peanut butter, or cooking something with chunks of apple, but what purpose is served by having half an apple with the seeds still in place?

Well at $4 for 500ml for some vodkas well I wouldn’t want to drink that stuff. Good for stripping paint though. :slight_smile:

Some apples are so big that I end up sharing them with someone. (But not by splitting them with my own hands. Not yet.)
