    Everyone probably already knows this one but when you're doing spaghetti, throw some at the wall, if it sticks, it's al dente (done properly)

    1. No, that's a spatula, not a spoon. You can't eat with it.

    2. I don't care how long it's been, you can't eat it off the floor.

    3. No, you shouldn't try to cook minute rice in 58 seconds.

    4. Don't try to fix the microwave yourself. Ever.

    5. If it's expired - just let it go.

    6. No, pasta is not you should eat every other day.

    7. Just because your roommate has crumbs in their hair, doesn't mean you should.

    8. Avoid anything that takes longer then 5 minutes to prepare. You're not fooling anyone.

    9. I don't care how drunk you are or who dared you, things in the bin stay where they are.

    Claim the top shelf of the fridge as soon as you move in. People's dripping meat/other crap won't go all over your food that way.

    Look for and attend farmers markets and try and build up a rapport with the/a local butcher.
