HOW TO GET A TAXI
Many taxis work out of major hotels in cities such as New York and Boston and people generally line up at the hotel's entrance and wait their turn. If you;re in a rush, walk a block in the direction from which the cabs come, turn down the next available street and hail a cab before they make the turn onto the hotel block. You'll also probably be headed in the right, or easily accessed, direction instead of the cab having to go around the hotel block to start you on your rip.

OUR SOCIAL RELATIONSHIP GROUP SIZE
Robin Dunbar, Oxford U. anthropologist, asserts that humans are capable of managing a cognitive limit of 150 stable relationships no matter how social we are. This is called the Dunbar number. The size of a human’s neocortex is the primary determinant of this. Face it, your five thousand friends on Facebook are just a fantasy.

COLD NAP-CONCENTRATION PACK
As a corollary to Cool Tools page 248, "Take a Nap," use a flexible gel ice pack, cozily couched in an old sock, over your eyes. The flex allows the perfect shape easily molded with a quick squeeze. Naptime is a challenge for many because their mind will not slow down. The ice pack will focus your mind on your gently watering eyes.

SAVE YOUR HANDS IN WINTER
Soap strips the oils from your hands, causing your skin to dry, crack, peel and split, especially in winter. To cure this, avoid washing your hands with soap and water. Use Purell instead. You will be amazed at the difference.
