Being Single Can Be Tough, So Here Are 142 Memes To Make It More Entertaining (142 Pics)

Something we all have in common is that we’ve all been single at one or many points in our lives. And yes, views are evolving, but being single is still stigmatized. Just think about it, how many times have you heard “When are you going to settle down and get married?” or “When are you going to make me a grandmother?” However, if someone ends up single, it might not be the end of the world for them. Shocking, I know.

Singlehood has its ups and downs. For example, there’s the sweet, sweet freedom, but you also have to suffer through the perils of online dating. It’s not perfect. But then again, is anything? In an attempt to stop their relationship-flaunting friends from asking “How are you?” in a condescending tone, single people have been describing their everyday life in memes. Maybe if they make enough of these, their relatives will also get the message?

Featured – Skullcandy Dime True Wireless Earbuds with 12 hours of total playback time launched in India

The US-based company, Skullcandy, announced the launch of new wireless earbuds in India. The audio brand has launched the Skullcandy Dime True Wireless Earbuds under Rs 5,000 price segment. With the launch of the product, the company aims to take on other companies such as Xiaomi, Realme, Oppo and more that offer TWS devices at budget-friendly costs. Dime offers up to 12 hours of playback though it lacks touch controls instead it equips physical controls on each earbud.

“Despite being the fastest-growing segment in stereo headphones, true wireless earbuds still account for less than half of the market,” said Amlan Bhattacharjya, CEO, Brand Eyes, Distributor of Skullcandy in India, referring to 2020 NPD Unit Share data. “Our all-new Dime True Wireless Earbuds are intent on changing that. Offering stellar sound and unmatched simplicity at a price that makes it possible to throw a pair in every bag, Dime breaks down all barriers formerly associated with true wireless.”

109 Dumb Yet Somehow Genius Life Hacks That Actually Work (New Pics)

If it sounds stupid, looks stupid, quacks like stupid, but also (kinda) works, is it still stupid? The jury’s still out on this one. What we know for sure is that in the world of life hacks, even the weirdest ideas can still have merit. All it takes is a bit of creativity and the willingness to stick a broken key into a potato to make a new grip. Genius and madness are often two sides of the same coin, after all.

Our team over here at Bored Panda wanted to share some of that peculiar worldly wisdom with you, so we’ve compiled this list of the most bizarre life hacks that (sorta, kinda, surprisingly) work. Scroll on down and remember to upvote the ones that impressed you the most, as well as the ones that got you giggling so hard, you had to take a five-minute break. Got a particular fave hack that you can’t wait to share with all of your friends semi-seriously? Let us know which one it was in the comments.

Who better to help navigate the world of silliness than a comedian? Comedy writer and musical stand-up comedian Ariane Sherine put an end to the age-old discussion about whether or not something’s dumb if it works. “It’s actually very smart, and it’s a shame if people don’t use it through fear of looking dumb!” she told Bored Panda. Read on for the rest of our interview with Ariane.

In the mood for some more hacks and even more laughs to boost your mood? You’ll find our earlier posts about silly but functional life hacks over here and right here. Bon appétit.

#3 Get Your Roommate To Clean The Apartment

British comedian Ariane explained that human beings tend to look down on ideas that sound dumb on a theoretical level because we want to appear much more intelligent than we might actually be. It’s all to do with our (perceived) reputations!

“Everybody wants to think they’re smart (even if they’re actually Donald Trump!) and people hate feeling stupid or being duped. If a piece of advice doesn’t sound helpful, I guess people who see themselves as clever will automatically reject it rather than try it and risk feeling dumb,” she shared with Bored Panda.

Meanwhile, Ariane, just like us, is a huge fan of avocados. Not surprisingly, her favorite life hack has to do with them and how they have an “inbult ripeness sensor” that lets you tell if the avocado is overripe or still green (yes, yes, they’re always green, but you know what we mean!).

“You know how hard it is to tell whether an avocado’s ripe before cutting into it? Simply twist the stem. If it doesn’t come off, it’s underripe; if it comes off and is green underneath, it’s ripe; if it’s brown underneath, it’s overripe. Voila—no more rock hard or mushy grey avocados!” she shared, adding that she has, just us, found that supermarkets promoting ‘ripe’ avocados tend to lie about just how ripe they really are.

Life hacks come in all shapes and sizes. From tiny modifications to how you go about your day for increased efficiency to some seriously out-of-the-box thinking that stays with you, changing your entire perception about life and how you’ve been living it.

In short, life hacks are concentrated bits of worldly wisdom that people have picked up during their lives. We’ve all got at least a few pearls of wisdom that we can share with others, but we’re sometimes not aware that it’s something that others wouldn’t know about.

#15 Relationship Hacks 101

While some life hacks we pick up from others, improving them to fit our needs, others are, as Bob Ross would say, “happy little accidents.” It just goes to show that even when we think that we’ve got life all figured out, a small slip or mistake can actually be an opportunity to live life better. I mean, I probably won’t use a potato as a key handle until I absolutely have to, but it’s good to have the idea about how flexible I can be somewhere in the back of my head.

For the Greek philosopher, Aristotle, practical wisdom (also known as practical rationality or ‘phronesis’) was the highest intellectual virtue. “Phronesis is the complicated interactions between general (theory) and practical (judgment),” one paper explains.

While we might not immediately link life hacks to something as profound as Aristotelean philosophy, they do hold some things in common, specifically the practical and correct application of theoretical knowledge. And considering that some of these life hacks help solve real-world issues (however small they might be), they shouldn’t be dismissed despite how dumb they might sound on a purely theoretical level.

Life hacks might not be as mighty as author John Bradshaw explains in his book ‘Reclaiming Virtue’ (i.e. practical wisdom being “the ability to do the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason”), but they are a reflection of humankind’s ability to adapt and overcome challenges, from the tiny and ridiculous to the profound and consequential. There’s nothing wrong with MacGyvering a solution if conventional knowledge fails us!

But what life hacks do you have to share with all the other Pandas? Are they something that you discovered by accident or did you see them somewhere? Do you believe that life hacks can be considered to be successful if they’re really dumb but work? What’s the absolute stupidest life hack you’ve ever seen that still (kinda, sorta, surprisingly) works? Let us know what you think below.

Shameless Bride Expects Wedding Guests To Bring $400 Gifts, People Aren’t Taking Any Of It

Weddings usually are beautiful celebrations of love, partnership, families and friends coming together to spend this magical day with two awesome humans. The amount of preparation and effort it takes for both bride and groom to organize it can be stressful at times. That could be one of the reasons why some brides overthink too much and all of a sudden turn into a phenomenon called “bridezilla.” And as it is customary in many places to bring gifts for the newlyweds, some couples organize some sort of a gift guide for guests, some are happy to receive money, and some have no particular expectations and love anything that their loved ones decided to pick.

A Reddit user, DexOrangeCounty, shared a post from Facebook that was probably created for the guests of the wedding party. And is not just your regular RSVP message—it’s a list of gifts that the bride expects to receive, they are not cheap, and there are no exceptions. Let us know in the comments if you’ve had similar experiences with the notorious bridezillas.

More info: Reddit

A future bride who has remained unnamed has compiled a hysterical list of wishes for things she wants as gifts from her wedding guests

Image credits: Scott Webb

The post shared on Reddit’s online community ChoosingBeggars dedicated to posting screenshots, pictures, or stories of people who are being way too picky when begging for things, received over 11.7k and 1.2k comments. It was also reposted on Reddit’s weddingshaming community, which is self-explanatory and has a really fun tagline that reads “a place to shame wedding themes, brides, grooms, wedding party, in-laws, outlaws, guests, Uncle Bob, vendors… you name it, we shame it!”

The future bride, whose identity is anonymous, posted a quite extensive list of gifts for her guests to choose from. At the beginning of the list and at the end she clearly states that there are no exceptions, but she could make some slight changes if it’s discussed with her prior.

The bride was immediately branded as selfish by Reddit community users for expecting her guests to invest $400 dollars minimum on items such as Gucci or Louis Vuitton purses, gift cards from luxury stores, Korean beauty products, Calvin Klein or Moschino clothing. And all of that came with a spreadsheet to make sure the gifts won’t be duplicates. The comments flooding in from the shocked online community members were pretty funny, grasping at the high expectations the bride has and what her idea of wedding gifts is.

One Reddit user also pointed out was that none of the items were for the groom and it seemed that all of the gifts were for her. The bridezilla also encouraged her guests to promptly choose their items to give so that they wouldn’t have to buy her something they wouldn’t like to get her: “Remember to apply early if you don’t want to get me a Gucci purse or anything you don’t want to get.”

Reddit users were absolutely shocked, some were laughing about it, and some came up with ingenious ideas of how they would teach the greedy bride if they were to be guests at the wedding

People Are Cracking Up Over This Thread Where A British Person Lists 50 American States And What They’re Famous For

Knowing how many states there are in the US is one thing, but listing them out one by one, especially if you’re not American, may be a mission (nearly) impossible. But one Twitter user who goes by the handle @human_not_bees decided to take this task even further and list all the states, one by one, in alphabetical order, for what they are known for.

But there’s one but. The person saying they’re British is one. And, there’s no googling involved in the undertaking. The result? Well, see it yourself below, but people are cracking up badly, some say it’s spot-on, while others say they are not crazy about speaking in generalizations. Still, the thread amassed 80.5k likes and counting, and who doesn’t like a little glimpse into how foreigners feel about the beloved land of the free?

Also, scroll down for Bored Panda’s interview with the author of this thread, known by the name Beës, who was happy to share how he got the idea for guessing the states, as well as the differences he finds between British and Americans.

This British Twitter user is going viral for listing all American states for what they think they’re known for but without googling

Image credits: human_not_bees

In an email interview, Beës told us that he got the idea for the thread while talking to some of his Twitter friends when someone said they knew “all the UK accents” because they’d visited the UK and driven around. “I thought if the bar was that low for claiming you knew about a country, then I’d test my knowledge of US states,” Beës recounted.

“I used a list of the states so I had them in alphabetical order and didn’t miss any, but I didn’t look any up,” the author said.

When asked where he got all the details about the states, Beës said it all comes down to America’s media. It’s “pretty pervasive, and we see enough of it that we learn these things from TV shows and movies. Also, you guys have some pretty cheesy TV that seems very willing to lean into the stereotypes of people and places, so really, you guys did this to yourselves,” Beës added.

Beës also said that he’s only been to New Mexico, and when asked to pick his favorite states, he replied: “I guess wherever AOC is from (New York?). You guys need some socialism, trust us—we’ve got some and it’s great. Also, I think that’s where Björk lives now, which instantly makes it the best state,” he added.

Beës runs a Twitter page @human_not_bees where he shares daily insights with a currently growing audience of almost 10k. But according to him, Twitter is a weird place since “you never know what’s going to be popular.”

“I wrote this tweet in the morning in the UK thinking it would pass under the US radar as you would mostly all be asleep, and it would just make people in Europe chuckle and a few of my US followers when they saw it later. When it took off, it was surprising.”

The author said that it was “nice to see the ‘I live here and this is correct’ replies, and that I hadn’t upset people too much. It didn’t really take off until Sunday evening. I played D&D with some Twitter friends for about 4 hours and when we were done, my phone was at 12% battery from the notifications.”

The thread blew up on social media and Beës had to mute the thread and replies initially “because it was a huge overload of replies and information.”

Once he got back at it, he also got a lot of DMs correcting him about his information.“I think maybe they missed the point. My favorite correction was a person who was clearly stoned trying to explain to me that Colorado didn’t invent weed,” Beës laughed.

When asked about fundamental differences between British and Americans, Beës first mentions humor. “British humor is more self-deprecating. I think we have a higher tolerance for both mocking others and being mocked. Just compare the US and UK versions of The Office. Saying that, The Office US is my favorite of the two.”

“For you guys, I think American exceptionalism is a fundamental difference—the idea that a few of you guys hold where you are the world’s greatest country and sometimes doubling down on that with believing you’re ‘god’s chosen nation’ gets an eye-roll from us over here in Europe. You’re pretty ok, but honey, no,” Beës concluded humorously.

31 Funny Comics About Different Gods And Other Characters By ‘Goofy Gods Comics’

Gods have been the explanation for everything that is happening in our world from the beginning of time. And we know of these Greek, Roman, Indian, Egyptian, Christian, Islamic, and other gods because they were such big parts of people’s lives that they were immortalized in various writings. And they still to this day are inspiration for contemporary creators.

For example, the Instagram account Goofy Gods Comics portrays the gods in a completely different way than we are used to seeing them. These gods are silly, goofy, and funny with Zeus discovering the Mario games and Hades finally going on a date with Persephone, with the stories sometimes having references to modern-day culture.

Bored Panda noticed these artists not long after they started their Instagram account and has an article on them which you can check out here. But since then, they’ve came a long way and created even more comics, so we are making a follow-up article so that even more people can get to enjoy their work.

In the comics, the reoccurring characters are Zeus, the god of sky and thunder who rules other gods. Then there’s also Hades, the god of the dead and the king of the underworld. He is inseparable from his three-headed dog Cerberus, who is called Cerbie in the comics.

Goofy Gods Comics not only creates short comics, but their audience is also involved in a mini-series. Recently, we found out if Hades finally got the courage to ask Persephone on a date and if she agreed to it.

The characters are goofy and cute. The god of the dead, usually depicted as a grim figure with a monstrous three-headed dog by his side, has a really lovable personality in these comics. Originally wrathful gods become adorable individuals and if you know at least a little bit of Greek mythology, then these comics will be even more enjoyable.
