How To: Clean Up Your Patent Leather

There might be an actual time and place for this Alexandria McQueen $535 bow clutch.Patent Leather in all its glory. Most of us have at least one or two good buys or ill-advised patent leather accessories lurking in the depths of our drawers and closets. Sure there’s the adage that, “There’s a time and place for patent leather, and that’s never and nowhere,” but if you’re in more of a waste-not-want-not frame of mind this season, thereby looking to maintain what you’ve got, PD has you covered.

Genius Idea: Let Government Tell You How to Celebrate the Holidays…For Your Safety

All Fridays Matter.Watch out for your liver. PD already told you earlier this week about the special radiation detection bracelets that DHS would like the taxpayers to gift the TSA, but Indiana’s Department of Homeland Security has decided to take backseat holiday-making to a whole different level.

Memory Lane Monday: Big Government is Here to Help

A Reagon classic.It’s a good thing that private companies don’t already do this---wait! They do.Ronald Reagan might have said that the most terrifying words in the English language are, “I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help,” but nowadays, with a Yellen monetary printing press and citizens being taught from Kindergarten that they are incapable of doing anything without the helping hand and approval from the political class, it has become second nature to look for Government’s guidance from who to have in the bedroom to what to do in the kitchen.

How To: Rock Candy Recommended by Rangel

Wrong Rangel.You can also substitute the string for a stick to make some like this to be more pleasing to Governor Francisco Rangel.Last month, Governor Francisco Rangel of Venezuela’s Bolívar Region said that contrary to popular belief, his fellow countrymen weren’t affected by the havoc of mass (somewhere in the ballpark of 200%) inflation and they certainly weren’t by any means starving---not as long as rocks and sticks are still in good supply.

How To: Handle a Shark Attack

Only trying to help...Mr. Chomper...or is it Mrs.?Statistically the likelihood of you ending up a shark appetizer the moment you wade into the water is pretty low, but in a world of Murphy’s Law and Donald Trump still being in the 2016 running, anything can happen.

Don’t worry though (well, probably worry about 2017), because as always PD has you covered.

How To Manage a Hike in High Temps

Good Springs.Do not die for sand dunes, even the Kelso ones pictured here.With the recent heatstroke deaths of a French mother and father and the fortunate rescue of their young son at New Mexico’s White Sands National Monument, the PD staff wanted to, much in the same vein as our piece on surviving floods, layout some tips for walking during the worst of Summer’s sun.
