[rebelmouse-image 18345246 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The technological revolution has given humanity some amazing innovations. And since technology exists to make like easier, it's fun to dream about inventions that could take the mundane out of life.

RocketRaccoon96 asked, What would you definitely buy if it existed?

Submissions have been edited for clarity, context, and profanity.

Pretty sure these exist, but yeah, definitely worth the money.

[rebelmouse-image 18345247 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A comfy always-cold pillow.

Honestly, 100% this. Also bagels that only have seeds on one side, sup with that?

[rebelmouse-image 18345248 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Double-sided Frosted Mini-Wheats! Why has this never been a thing?!

For those times your Chipotle burrito needs two tortillas...

[rebelmouse-image 18345249 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Edible sticky tape - great for keeping tortillas and other wraps together.

This is the future of computer-brain interfaces.

[rebelmouse-image 18345252 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I'd buy instant knowledge. Something that took someone years to study would take me a matter of seconds to learn.

How much would that cost though?

Here's some Millennial realness.

[rebelmouse-image 18345254 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

I probably wouldn't be able to afford whatever it is.

Considering being teleported would actually kill you...

[rebelmouse-image 18345255 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A wormhole device. I don't trust teleporters.

This would be enormously helpful.

[rebelmouse-image 18345257 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Sleep ray. That insomnia has got me again.

I think we call these "interns."

[rebelmouse-image 18345259 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A robot that did my job for me but I still got my paycheck.???????

Ain't this the dream.

[rebelmouse-image 18345260 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A washing machine that you put all the laundry in and press go then go back and it's dry and folded.

Everyone needs a Grandpa Rick.

[rebelmouse-image 18345262 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Portal gun.

Total future tech: the starship Enterprise is self-cleaning.

[rebelmouse-image 18345264 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A house that cleans itself. Press a button and voila it's clean.

Chances are if you need to the shell, you're not the one in first place.

[rebelmouse-image 18345265 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A blue shell. I want to find out who's in first place in this world.

3-D printers are the precursors to food replicators... can't wait.

[rebelmouse-image 18345268 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A real-life copy and paste machine so I can have unlimited food.

Why not a pill that contains essential nutrients, and just skip the food altogether?

[rebelmouse-image 18345269 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A pill that you take after you eat that would convert your food to the right nutritional balance in your stomach.

There's so much to know, and not enough brain in which to store it all.

[rebelmouse-image 18345270 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

More ram for my brain.

I'd settle for a printer that's easy to figure out how to use.

[rebelmouse-image 18345272 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A printer that f_cking works.

So, a magic wand.

[rebelmouse-image 18345273 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Matter manipulator. I'm talking those things that can take goop and turn it into food, or turn a human into a dinosaur or something. Could you imagine?

To get to the future, you just have to travel really fast. Backward time travel is (probably) impossible. Science!

[rebelmouse-image 18345274 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Time machine.

Here's a scary thought: Times Square filled with people on hoverboards.

[rebelmouse-image 18345275 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Definitely the hoverboard from "Back to the Future."

Believe it or not, research indicates that this may indeed be possible.

[rebelmouse-image 18345276 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Dream recording machine, so I could watch them back like a movie. I have really awesome dreams sometimes and I would love to experience them again.

Foreigners Break Down Their Favorite American Meals

Growing up, I had zero idea that the food I ate daily was "cultural."

It didn't occur to me until I was a kid when my mother had to gently explain to me that not everyone ate rice & beans.

She had to explain it because we were about to eat at a white friend's house for the first time.

People Share The Best Ways To Politely End A Conversation

Have you ever been caught in a conversation you didn't want to be in? Or start talking to someone only to realize you want to stop? Perhaps you were talking to a friend when the conversation took a turn for the uncomfortable.

Whatever the case, we've all been in those situations where we want the conversation to stop, but don't want to be rude.

When I was in third grade, I asked if I voted on American Idol that week. I said yes, since everyone seemed to, but of course I didn't know what American Idol was. Being pop culture challenged, I thought it was a ship. Needless to say everyone was confused when I was asked who I voted for and I replied, "What do you mean? I voted for American Idol!"

It didn't take me long to realize something was amiss, and I probably would've very rudely excused myself from the conversation (fueled by my embarrassment) if my teacher hadn't called us to attention at that very moment.

Luckily, the people of Reddit were willing to share their methods to politely end a conversation when Redditor Spritti33asked:

"How does someone politely end a conversation with a person who won't stop talking?"
