Rules Of Thumb

Someone is attempting to collect all those "rules of thumb" guestimate tools in one place.

For example --When ants travel in a straight line, expect rain. When they scatter, expect fair weather.

Or when dealing with notorious non-payers, always charge twice as much as the job will actualy cost, then get half the money up front.

Or when giving your age, odd-numbered ages seem older and more worldly wise than even-numbered ages.

Or for estimating the length of a rainshower - If animals enter a building during a rainstorm, it will be a short shower, if they stay outside, it will be a long rain. My dad has told me that one about chickens before.
