Believe it or not, it makes sense to spend a little bit more money on a quality product from time to time. It'll essentially pay for itself and you'll thank yourself later.

Having trouble figuring out what to get? If you ask people online, they'll be sure to sing the praises of the awesome desk chair they purchased or a proper pair of work boots. Comfort and practicality can go hand-in-hand, after all, as we learned once Redditor Killer097 asked, "What is worth every penny?"


"It's something..."

A really comfortable desk chair. If it's something you're going to be sitting in for hours a day, spending a little extra on a chair is well worth it.

"I took a class..."

I took a class on positive psychology as an elective a few years ago. I have used what I learned in that class practically every day since, through some very intense and upsetting times. I use what I learned in that class to help maintain my mental health during isolation, and for someone who struggles with severe depression, I've been doing a pretty damn good job.

Not only was that class worth every penny, I think it should be taught in high school for free.

"I've been using..."

Giphy

A good chef knife. I've been using mine for about 4 years now and it still keeps its edge. May cost $200 dollars but it's worth it instead of having to buy one every year

"They usually..."

A top floor apartment. They usually cost more than a downstairs apartment, but not having to listen to footsteps and plumbing noises is worth the extra cost.

"I don't mean..."

High quality soap. I don't mean like going to bath and body works and getting real smelly stuff, but like paying the $10 for three bars of Cetaphil body soap. Lasts long and your skin won't dry all to hell, and for me, no horrific allergic reaction to anything.

"I was gifted..."

An electric toothbrush.

I was gifted a Sonicare over 10 years ago, and will never go back to a manual toothbrush. When I've had to use a manual toothbrush I feel like a caveman and my teeth never feel as clean.

RustyDino

"Got them when I..."

Light-blocking Curtains.

Got them when I had to work 3rd shift for a few months. Will never go back. They truly live up to their name. No matter how bright it is outside, it is like 2am on a moonless night in my bedroom.

silentjay01

"Even when we're not working..."

Therapy. Even when we're not working through meaty stuff, I love having someone to offer different perspectives and challenge my perceptions of situations. Plus, during an unexpected crisis like this? It's nice to have someone on deck to help me work through all the bad stuff.

NewMoney_OldSpot

"Obviously..."

Logic Pro X - or any music making software that will be the best for you!

Obviously this is for people who want to make music, but after 6 years on garage band (the free, limited version), I decided to buy the full version, Logic. It's $250, lifetime ownership over multiple or upgraded devices, no hidden fees or subscriptions.

Not only have I been able to make money with it, it's made me incredibly joyous and fulfilled. It's like an artist buying a lifetime supply of canvas and paints!

"One neat thing..."

A good mattress. Never underestimate the long term benefits of a good night's rest (or negative effects of poor sleep). I mean, you basically spend 1/3 of your life asleep and another 1/3 of it wishing you were asleep. One neat thing I learned in my first master's program (had a whole class on the science of how people learn) is that your brain consolidates everything you experienced that day while you're asleep, so that's really where learning happens. It's analogous to transferring memories from RAM to your hard drive, which incidentally has infinite storage capacity. Point is, there are lots of things you can skimp on in life, but quality sleep isn't one of them.

Do you have something to confess to George? Text "Secrets" or "🤐" to +1 (310) 299-9390 to talk to him about it.

Stupid is as stupid does. And it’s pretty obvious when some poor, misinformed, potentially ignorant soul needs to be put in their place. Luckily, there are a lot of witty ways to do just that. We love a good euphemism.

Wanna know the best way to call out stupidity when you see it? Stay tuned.

U/lientubay asked: What's the best euphemism for telling people that they're stupid?

​Get a load of these sick burns. I swear, the people of Reddit are harsh.

Call outs are a universal language.

In Russian we have "intelligent thoughts have always followed him, but he was faster".

Humphr1es

We have something similar in German: "Intelligence is chasing you, but you are faster."

Be your own Easter Bunny.​

You could hide your own Easter eggs.

Bdiz78

The great Harvey Korman had some Alzheimer's @ 2005, and he still went on a talk show. They asked him how he was doing and he said he was OK. "Now I can hide my own Easter eggs." RIP.

Gas-Blaster

That’s cold.​

“At this point, you can only impress me."

Roman_Suicide_Note

This reminds me of something I saw in a show recently. One character said "Would you think less of me if ____." The other character said "I could never think less of you."

Catty_wampus

​I lol’d.

I think I saw this one here previously "You aren't the biggest idiot in the world but you better hope they don't die".

Soalindie

Once told this to my brother, his immediate response was "hey, please don't die".

Srakrn

It takes a very intelligent person to properly call out a dumb person. Weird how that works, huh?​

When the bears are smarter than the tourists.​

Now I know what Douglas Adams was talking about.

"A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools."

BerenTheBold

As the park rangers in Yellowstone say- making a bear-proof trash can is very difficult due to the considerable overlap between the smartest bears and the dumbest tourists.

Lahmmom

​That’s a gross mental image.

In Greece we say "when it was raining brains, you had an umbrella".

GSavvage

In German we ask God for help. "God, let there be raining brains" this sounds so weird but idk how to express it better lol.

Edit: In German it's "Gott, lass Hirn regnen".

Foxpawdot

It’s probably a bad sign when your lawyer calls you dumb.

Lawyer to client who shared detailed attorney-client privileged strategy memorandum with a whole bunch of people, including an adverse party:

Client: "Is there anything you can do to fix this?"

Attorney: "No, you've pretty much waived the privilege and now they know everything."

Client: "Is there anyway to put a positive spin on this?"

Attorney: "Well, I suppose the judge might buy that this proves that you lack the mental capacity to form specific intent."

Malibulobo

These next ones are just plain cold, but probably very much deserved.​

Meanness from a Canadian is probably well-earned.

Ahh Terry, having you around is like losing three good men.

StrykerSeven

Oof, that’s harsh.

He's so far behind he thinks he's first.

Perstn

I had a keychain as a kid that said, "She who laughs last thinks slowest.”

KatieSedai

Those are some gross socks.

Once heard someone say "Well he's about as sharp as a sock full of soup".

Angrypunishment

"Sharp as a marshmallow" was one that went around my friend circle.

Rubywolf27

In the words of the great prophets Smash Mouth, “I ain’t the sharpest tool in the shed”. That self-burn is perhaps one of the most classic euphemisms. And I just almost misspelled “euphemism”. So I can definitely relate to that lyric.

A good way to exercise your brain? Keep thinking of creative ways to insult people. Trust me, it works like a charm
