For those of us who aren't morning people, fighting off the last vestiges of dream land and actually extricating ourselves from our beds can be a monumental task.

Nothing is worse than when you've just laid down and gotten comfortable and realize you've forgotten something (usually turning the light off). This can lead to quite a bit of ingenuity when figuring out how to get things done without having to actually get back up and out of bed.

"Since I'm too lazy to even try throwing some stuff at the switch to turn on/off the light, I bought a Google Home Mini and a bulb that connects to Wifi, so I just have to say "Okay google, turn on (or off) the light" from my bed."

"I have a dog and a cat, and I HATE sleeping with the door open. Sometimes dog wants to sleep in the bedroom, sometimes dog wants to sleep outside the bedroom. But he never decides until I'm comfy in bed. Solution? Keep a laser pointer on my nightstand. Once dog decides where he's sleeping, I'll shine the laser pointer on the door so that my cat paws it closed. It has now become a routine that my cat will wait by the door for the laser before laying down."

"When I was a kid, I had a bunk bed. I would sleep on the top bunk. I was also an avid reader, so I would stay up late reading most nights. Now, being on the top bunk, there weren't many options for light other than the regular overhead fixture. No place to put a lamp, really. I absolutely hated getting up, climbing down the ladder, turning off the overhead light, and climbing back up in the dark. One day my friend and I invented a system of pulleys that ran a string from my light switch, down to the carpet (attached to the fibers with a safety pin), back to the ceiling, across the ceiling, and finally ending hanging directly above my pillow. With one tug, I could turn the light off from my bed! It didn't turn the light on, but that didn't matter. It was a lot of work to build, simply to avoid getting out of bed."

People Imagine How They'd React If Someone Offered Them $50K For Their Pet

I've got a decent amount of animals - some fish, turtles, dogs, etc. - but out of all of them, Optimus Prime is definitely *my* pet.

He's kind of a jerk to everyone else, but a with me he's a the biggest bestest beefaroni boy.

That is an outright lie, this dog is awfully behaved and taught himself how to open doors so he stays letting mosquitos in the house and air conditioning all of South Florida instead of just my living room. I just have a soft spot for him.

But here's the thing - soft spot or not, if someone offered me $50k for this dog, my reaction wouldn't be horror because I just love my "shmoopies" and even can't imagine. I'm not that privileged.

People Explain How They Got Their Scars
Wil Stewart/Unsplash

Two years ago I steamed a hole in my belly with a hot water bottle that was slightly open.

I didn't feel myself literally cooking because I have nerve damage in the area, but I still have a quarter-sized circular scar as proof!

I've got lots of scars, but my lobster steam stamp is one of my newer additions so it's kind of a fan favorite right now.

Have you ever heard of a certain job that people call a career and thought... "PEOPLE PAY YOU FOR THAT?!?!"

All hard, honest work is good work.

And then there is just trash work.

And I don't mean garbage collection, that is honest work.

I don't know how some people live with themselves.

Redditor MrTuxedo1 wanted to discuss the careers they don't believe people should chase. They asked:

"What job do you have no respect for?"

The nose is constantly being attacked by odors of the world.

Going through one day without having to hold my breath during a certain point, is a miracle.

Of course, I'm a New Yorker, so I maybe exaggerating for people in the countryside.

What's funnier is odors that are pleasant, that shouldn't be.

Have you ever looked and something and thought... "yuck."

But then you smelled it and it was like... "oh lovely,"

Redditor HappQueue wanted to know what aromas are arousing to the senses that may come as a surprise to many. They asked:

"What smells good but shouldn't?"
