A good life-hack can save you lots of time and effort. It’s the type of thing that, once you discover it, keeps you from ever going back to the old ways of doing things. However, not all life-hacks are created equal. Some are game-changers, while others, well, others actually make your life more difficult. Check out his list of 42 ridiculous life-hacks that are worth a laugh but not a try and be sure to resist the urge to give these a go at home on your own.

1. Chopsticks Are Tough

Getting the hang of chopsticks can take a bit of practice. But this life-hack just made everything more complicated. Use one or the other, man. There’s no need for this.

2. Clean Spaghetti

Don’t you hate it when you put the wrong pasta sauce on your noodles? Well, now you can stop tossing your incorrectly-sauced spaghetti into the trash. Toss it in the washing machine instead, and clean off your noodles.

3. So Fancy

There’s nothing worse than walking into a kitchen with loose oranges all over the counter. Rather than putting them in a bowl or a basket-like everyone else, try this little life-hack. Your guests will be… confused.

4. Fire Hazard

Please don’t try this one at home. All you’re going to do is burn your pasta and set off the smoke alarm. Boiling water is already extremely easy, there’s no need to life-hack this one.

5. Genius

This guy is a genius. Not only does it work, but it keeps your hands free for other uses as well. This may be the one ridiculous life-hack that I may have to try.

6. Kitty-Broom

Sometimes, brooms just don’t seem to cut it. They tend to miss the smaller dirt and dust particles that are on the floor. But by using a cat, you’ll be able to pick up every particle, no matter how small. Now you just have to figure out how to sweep up all of the cat fur…

7. Paste-Burger

Life-hacks are all about making your life easier and more efficient. However, combining two tasks at once isn’t always the answer. Although it may give your burger a delicious minty taste, it definitely won’t leave your teeth feeling clean and cavity-free.

8. Not Those Types Of Tangles

I’m no hair expert, but I’m pretty sure that this product isn’t a cure-all for every tangle out there… it’s just for hair. Tough luck, bud. But don’t worry, because I think Apple’s already got a life-hack for this one–they’re called AirPods.

9. Sneaky Mom

They say that being a parent during the first few months of your baby’s life can be tough. Your sleep-cycle is constantly being interrupted and there’s still plenty of work to be done. Although it’s a bit sneaky, I think this life-hack might actually work.

12. Man On The Moon

13. Makeshift Spork

Eating yogurt with a fork isn’t really the end of the world. It still works fine and even makes your snack last just a bit longer since some of the yogurt will slip through the cracks on every bite. But, if your allotted time for snacking is limited, taping up the slits in the fork should help moves things along.

14. Clever But Illegal

People have come up with all sorts of clever ways to open a beer bottle–lighters, chainsaws, silverware. Using your seatbelt looks like it’ll work out alright, too. The only problem is that you probably shouldn’t be opening beers while you’re in the car.

Sure it works, but what happens if you actually need to use the gun? I’m pretty sure one of the pockets in your pants is a good enough storage spot for a candy bar. But hey, those things are delicious, so do what you’ve got to do to get that chocolate in your mouth.

17. If Only…

If only life worked this way, I’d be going out to eat much more often. However, I’d feel too bad for my waiter to subtract the entire cost of the meal. In this case, I’d probably only subtract $69.90, leaving my waiter a solid $15 tip.

18. Better Than Nothing

A warm snack is so much better than a cold one. But when work has got you chained to your desk, this may be your only option. Just remember to slide your snack in-between the chargers at least three hours before you get hungry. This will ensure proper warmth by the time you’re ready to eat.

75 Comparison Images That Cause A Double Take

Published

on

It’s amazing what you’ll notice when you open your eyes and view the world from a different perspective. That’s what these people found out. Their comparison photos examining the differences and similarities between things will blow your mind.

By looking at two items beside one another, they made some pretty fascinating realizations. Sometimes, it has to do with landscape changes across different seasons. Other times, it is related to people. For example, the mom who matched her face up with her daughter’s and realized that they were pretty much identical twins.

In the moment, one might never notice these sorts of things, but viewing the photos side by side helps to provide contrast and prime our minds for new realizations. Once you see the images for yourself, you’ll understand what we mean.

He’s a husband and father first, but he’s also a funny comedy video creator. This New Zealand dad creates entertaining videos that get lots of hits because they’re downright hilarious. Jordan Watson shares parenting tips and tricks on his youtube page, with a great tongue in cheek style, that other dads (or anyone who takes care of kids) can relate to. Each video has his comedic sense of humor with a deadpan delivery, as he parodies the “how-to” videos that are popular on the internet.

Jordan Watson, from Aukland, New Zealand is a part-time landscaper, full-time dad, and viral video creator.

His first video was just a goof he put together when he was left alone with his baby, Alba. The video is titled, “How to Hold a Baby” and is currently at 3.7 million views. And that’s not even his most-watched video.

In an interview with Stuff, Watson still can’t believe the video went viral overnight,

“It was just me cutting together, in my eyes, crap – just me being an idiot and thinking that one guy at work’s going to like it.”

He chalks his success up to,

“Every parent can kind of relate, and there’s so many people out there who’re aunties, uncles, they look after people’s kids… It’s just everyday scenarios with kids which has given me the inspiration for it.”

Jordan always wears his trademark shirt and shorts or as they’re called in New Zealand, Togs.

In this video, which currently has over four million views, Jordan offers his own witty advice on how to put a baby to sleep. He lists and demonstrates a number of techniques, all with a deadpan delivery that only Jordan can muster.

Some examples are “The Hypnotist,” where dad dangles a nearby toy in front of the baby and coaxes her to sleep.

Another good one is called “The Bribe Dad.” Where dad bribes the baby to go to sleep with, “tomorrow I’ll let you climb the curtains.”

There’s, “Method Acting,” where dad pretends to be sleepy himself, and lays on the floor in order to convince the baby to sleep, too.

“The Dad That Doesn’t Know A Single Lullaby,” where Jordan mumbles and mishmashes his way through what might sound similar to some known Lullabies.

The funny thing about this video is that the real star is not Jordan.

No, it’s his baby daughter, Alba. She is such an integral part of the humor, because nearly every time Dad tries his methods, they work. The little one lays down to go to sleep, and her comedic timing is perfect. Dad administers the technique, Alba listens, and then to our rousing laughter, she complies. Leaving Jordan to say,

“It’s never really that easy.”

In Stuff, Jordan had this to say about his daughter,

“I think if you take Alba the cute baby out of it, they’re not going to do very well – it’s definitely 99 percent her, 1 percent me.”

Many Youtubers are head over heels for this video, and it’s stars.

“How the baby could understand that he is acting?”

“This child should be the highest paid child actor!”

Another Youtuber wonders,

“I don’t know if that baby is just insanely intelligent, an animatronic, a paid actor or if the dad just really knows his stuff?”

Get ready to laugh with this video. And prepare to go down the rabbit hole as “How To Dad,” Jordan Watson, has an ever-growing collection of funny videos. He feeds his followers a video a week, and probably feeds his charming family with the proceeds.

All in, he’s a really great husband and father, enjoy his funny “how-to” below!

Restaurant Adds Cute Stuffed Pandas To Help Customers During Social Distancing

Published

on

The past couple of months have been tough.

Health concerns, loss of income, and not being able to socialize has been extremely frustrating.

We are social creatures after all and it is in our nature to want to spend time with one another.

I personally live with four other roommates, so getting my fill of social connection hasn’t been too hard.

But I know many people who live alone and haven’t interacted with anyone in quite a while–and it’s starting to take its toll.

Even with four people in my house, I’m still itching for some social interaction with others.

Luckily, restrictions around COVID-19 are starting to lighten up.

Although many stores and restaurants are still closed, we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel for this whole quarantine business.

But things are still far from normal.

Even if stores are open, you’re still required to wear a mask and keep the recommended six-foot distance from everyone else.

So when one restaurant in Thailand opened its doors for the first time in months, they had some obstacles to overcome.

Maison Saigon, a Vietnamese restaurant in Bangkok, originally planned on having only one chair at each table to promote social distancing according to Insider.

But that just wasn’t cutting it.

When the owner, Natthwut Rodchanapanthkul, saw what the restaurant looked like with only one chair per table, he wasn’t satisfied.

He told reports at Reuters, “Earlier we had only one chair for the tables where the customer came alone. But for me, it felt strange, so I thought I’d give them some company.”

But how do you give someone company at a table when you aren’t supposed to be anywhere near each other?

By bringing in big stuffed pandas of course!

The owner placed stuffed panda bears in various chairs around the restaurant to give it a more cheery and inviting vibe.

It also helped reinforce the social distancing rule according to Bored Panda.

And it worked great.

One customer told Reuters, “The doll makes me feel less lonely eating by myself.”

Another customer explained that the stuffed animals not only improved the vibe of the place, but it made seating arrangements more clear as well.

He told reporters, “It’s a lot easier to understand compared to other restaurants where people always get confused about where to sit and end up sitting too close to each other.”

Now is the time when we need to get creative about the way that we do things.

Sure the owner of Maison Saigon could have just put up a bunch of signs that told people where they could and could not sit.

But how lame would that have been?

Nothing makes tough times harder than boring rules and stiff regulations.

It takes a little fun to shake things up!

And having a meal next to a giant, cuddly, cute stuffed panda sure does lighten the mood a bit.

So if you happen to be stuck at home by yourself right now, maybe give this stuffed animal trick a try.

Put a few on your couch, a couple at the dinner table, and maybe even one out on the deck.

Whatever it takes to get through this isolation period with a little bit of sanity is worth it.

And don’t be too surprised if you find that one small panda goes a long way.
