#20 - Given that hand size is usually fairly proportionate to body size and caloric intake is relative to body size. This guide is probably pretty accurate for most people regardless of how close their hands are to the measurements given.
Good post. Lots of good tips.

The avocado and lemon trick is redundant. Just keep the pit. And to add to that, you can also keep the pit(s) in guacamole until it is time to serve and it will also not turn brown.

I also can't imagine why you would want to freeze wine. Just keep it in the bottle and use as needed. It generally ages well.
