The holidays are a hectic time of year.

We're trying to put on the best show, present our best selves, and ensure we have our best end to the year.


Gifts are a common tradition, but man, wrapping them is so hard.

How do you make sure it always looks great? What do you do if you cut the paper a little too short?

Luckily, the internet was recently blown away by a wrapping hack that's as simple as it is brilliant.

The video uploaded to Blossom on Facebook, depicts a series of hacks to make your gift wrapping a little easier. With everything from making gift bags out of wrapping, or adding a built-in pocket for a card, the video has a lot of tricks.

But the one that caught the internet by storm is what to do if you cut the paper just a little too short. The answer is a simple tilt.

It's a controversial topic. As of 2021, active human euthanasia is legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia, Luxembourg, Canada, and Spain.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

Redditor u/Xanduh wanted everyone to chat about legal life fails by asking:

What do you wish was illegal?

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.
