Life's myths

I'm planning to expose some of life's myths - things we are meant to believe but are simply not as they appear.

I'm starting off with: ``Lift here to open''.

Now, how often do you see that printed on a cardboard box of some sort, be it with biscuits inside or plastic wrap or whatever. And guess what: it never works! You lift the tab ``here'' where it says and you still have to tear the box to get the damn thing open!

It's just not right.
