in the army is what it makes a human complete, some people say. You
learn dignity and respect, you strengthen up, you learn about discipline
and productivity. Most of all, you learn about patience.
are some of the most useful army tricks that can save up your time,
efforts and money. Originating from the US military, which is actually
an older institution than the USA country, these hacks are probably
worth giving a try to, right?
Duct tape your feet
you can avoid hot spots and blisters. Duct tape will prevent the areas
of your feet that rub against the shoes the most from making unpleasant
and hurtful wounds. The soldiers do this because the military boots are
so heavy and uncomfortable!
Tie “the knot”
Tie some knots
before the last holes of your shoes, especially the ones you wear the
longest during the day, or in workout. You will prevent the laces going
off-center or untying.
First-aid maxi pads
If you end up
wounded and with a pretty much terrible, blood-bursting wound, take a
maxi-pad and cover the wound with it! It is a much faster and also clean
alternative than looking for the first aid kit and cutting out a
sterile gauze in the time of need.

Not made just for running
It’s October and you think about storing the runner tights until spring? Don’t! use them as underwear for the cold winter!
buy a fire starter before going camping when you can just apply
Vaseline on some cotton? A faster and cheaper way to start a fire, don’t
If you notice being followed, don’t
freak out. Make 4 consecutive turns in a row. This works in 90% of the
cases. If your stalker is still following you, call 911 immediately.
Bedmaking is an art
in the military, where you can even get grounded if your bed isn’t made
like in a hotel room. Fold the side part of your sheet and tuck it in.
fold the footing part after, making a straight angle on the side and
tuck it in as well. neat and clean!
the military “fold’n’tuck” technique for some really baggy blouses, to
look better, than when the shirt is out of your pants, looking like a
Save water and cure yourself
Well, this is a trick
you might want to use and stay anonymous when you tip someone to do the
same. Peeing in the shower is actually a double benefit – you end up
saving water and also, pee cures and also prevents the condition called
