6 Steps on How to Quickly Tie a Tie

  1. Lift up the collar of your shirt and put the tie around the back of your neck. The wide end should hang down about twice as low as the thin end; it can hang closer to your right or left hand, depending on what’s most comfortable for you.
  2. Wrap the wide end around the thin end twice, a few inches below your neck. The wide end should go over the thin end at first. (Images 1 to 3 above)
  3. After wrapping the wide end around the second time, push it through the back of the V-shape made by the partially formed knot. (Image 4 above)
  4. Tuck the wide end through the front loop of the knot.
  5. Gently pull down on both the thin and wide ends below the knot until the knot is tight.
  6. Hold the thin end and slide the knot up to your neck. (Image 5 above)
  7. If the thin end hangs below the wide end, untie the tie and begin again, with the wide end hanging lower than it did the first time.
  8. If the wide end hangs too low, untie the tie and begin again, with the wide end hanging higher than it did the first time.

How Ancient Civilizations Used Their Armor

The helmets that the members of ancient civilizations wore into battle served a number of purposes. The primary purpose, of course, was to protect the head, and to a lesser extent, the face. The helmets worn by various ancient peoples also served another purpose as well. They were designed to be easily identifiable in battle. In this way, the members of the enemy army could be picked out with ease even in the heat of the battle.

A third reason for wearing helmets during battles with other armies was to intimidate them. By studying authentic Samurai helmets, for example, it is easy to understand that they were used to make their enemies respect, and fear, them. The entire design of these helmets would make even the most war weary warrior stop and take notice of the person wearing it.

Many of these fabled Japanese helmets featured some sort of horns on the front of the helmet. While intimidating to look at, it was even more startling to be faced with them as a weapon. Finely honed of materials that were known to be able to inflict serious, or even fatal, damage to those that were stabbed with them, these horns were feared by the enemies of the Japanese far and wide.

The helmets of the Japanese also featured a full facial mask. This was unusual for an ancient civilization. An advanced design such as this undoubtedly added to the fact that the Japanese reigned superior in most of the battles they fought in ancient times.

Ancient civilizations all had their own armor and weaponry. The ancient Roman weapons that are available for collecting today are, much like the helmets of the Samurai, based on historically accurate models from those days of long ago. From the wearable armor of the Romans and Japanese to finely wrought weapons made of the finest steel, you can own a piece of history with an authentic flair.

How to iron clothes

Ironing clothes is hard; honestly, I don’t master using a flat iron. What I’m going to share with you is just the basic steps on how to iron clothes.

  • All you need to have is the flat iron, the iron board, water sprayer and the clothes to iron.
  • Heat your flat iron (there’s an instruction depending on the types of clothes you will iron)
  • Start with the light clothing.
  • Place cloth on top of the iron board and gently rub the flat iron against the cloth.
  • Go on the portion where it is need to put much attention of ironing.
  • T-shirts and small clothing is easy to iron not like the heavy clothes like pants and shorts.
  • Make sure that you go over all the part of the cloth.
  • In case you will need to get more attention to the cloth you are ironing, better spray it with water to flatten it fast. Water makes the cloth smooth and easy to iron.
  • After you go over through the cloth and it’s already flattened, hang it with a plastic hanger and put it directly on a closet.
  • Go through over all the clothes and don’t forget to unplug the flat iron after every use.

Just a reminder, never make your flat iron too hot for it may burn your clothes. There’s also an iron stand where you can place your iron while you are placing the cloth on the iron board. Placing the hot flat iron anywhere can cause damage to you other things and might cause house burning when not used properly.
