    3. Wash your knicks in the bathroom sink every night and hang them on the waterpipes to dry

    20.Install a small flourescent strip light under your coffee table, then lie under it and read a book

    21. Raise the thresholds and raise the topsills of all the doors so you can bang your head and graze your shins as you pass through

    23. Every so often throw one of the kids in the bath while shouting "Man Overboard", sling in a sponge with a flag on it, then run into the kitchen and sling all the pots and pans on the floor. Then yell at your wife for not securing for sea properly
