While it’s tempting to digitally diagnose yourself, if you’re not a medical professional, it may lead you down an online rabbit hole that will leave you with the impression that you have a far more serious ailment than you thought.
Maybe it’s best to stick to the traditional getting-diagnosed-by-a-human-doctor. That way, you can avoid jumping to the worst-case scenario with a click of a mouse.
There is no universe where this piece of advice rings true. Do not be fooled! Oftentimes, withholding candy is the only card you can play to keep your kids in check. If you give in too early, say goodbye to peace and quiet and hello to screaming kids for the rest of your day.
Top tip: don't take your kid's advice when it comes to candy. It will always, and we mean always, be biased.

If her username indicates anything, it's that this Twitter user enjoys a good run. So we can imagine she would be in an almost constant state of sweatiness. Hopefully, for the good of those around her, she did not take this advice seriously.
Read the Fine Print
Sleeping on articles is not a way to imprint information into your brain. Instead, as we can tell from Christi's experience, it will just imprint onto your cheek. It's far less useful and not necessarily a great look.

Rice is a hygroscopic material, which means it absorbs water easily. That's where the wisdom of putting your soaked phone in a bowl of rice comes from.
Fries, on the other hand, being deep-fried slices of potato, are not hygroscopic. Putting your phone in a bowl of fries would probably just result in an oily and salty covering. Not appetizing or helpful.
