It’s true! There’s an easy and cool way to shoot rubber bands that I learned sometime long long ago from an amazing person (who this person is, exactly, I don’t remember, but I know the person to show me such a nifty skill must be amazing).

I’ve done it, you’ve done it, we’ve all done it–gone for the high five only to end up swinging through air, barely making hand contact, or accidentally slapping someone and ending up getting charged with simple assault. But with these simple instructions, our inept and jailbird days will be over. Well, they’ll be over when it comes to high-fiving, anyhow–the rest of it we’ll have to figure out on our own.

If you’d like to make your arms or stomach look more lean in pics, look no further. Two quick tips are provided that anyone can do. Well, actually, the stomach advice may work only in a limited number of situations, but if it seems inconvenient, just ask the photographer to keep the camera above the abdominal area. Or do more crunches. Or forget about looking thinner because physical diversity is where it’s at, man.

Girls on the Run is a cool organization for pre-teen girls, and my niece Madi shows how to do some of the awesome cheers. “Boom. Boom. Girl Power!”
