Combos are great - no I don't mean the snack, though those are delicious AF also. I mean the magic that happens when you take 2 things and put them together. Peanut butter was delicious, but meeting jelly was a serious upgrade. Punches are fantastic, but you totally get more points for a punch/kick combo. See where I'm going with this? Combos are a total Ciara-style level up.


One Reddit user asked:

What are some underrated combinations?

Now, I'm gonna be real with you. Most of this is about food - so if you're hungry maybe have a snack before you go in on this one. There are some seriously tempting ideas happening here. Some of these have been edited for clarity where needed.

No Tinnitus Is The Best Tinnitus

Ear plugs and live music

They really don't detract from the experience once you get used to them and you won't get tinnitus. Let me tell you, you really don't want tinnitus.

Shower Beer

A hot shower with a cold beer.

Drink it during the shower. If you had a really long day, take 2 or 3 with you. Not sure why, but it's the most relaxing thing ever. The shower beer is a deeply religious event.

Waffles

Peanut butter on waffles. As a kid my mom couldn't keep enough frozen waffles and peanut butter in the house, two days after a trip to the grocery store my brother and I would be looking for more.

The Roadtrip Soundtrack

Music and long car rides. Can't underestimate the importance of a good song while taking a trip.

All Cylinders

Duuuuude, jalapeño jelly and cream cheese on a Wheat Thin is like sex! It hits all cylinders; creamy, savory, salty, crunchy, sweet, spicy. It's perfect.

Shh

Shutting the f*ck up and listening.

Try it. It's life changing.

Bubbly Juice

Everyone thought I was weird for months at my job for this, but I'd mix cranberry juice and orange juice with sprite and it was absolutely delicious. People said it sounded disgusting but all of a sudden nowadays everyone is drinking it or asking me to make them one. Another personal favorite is strawberry kiwi juice and apple juice mixed with sprite. The key is to only put enough sprite for some bubbles, that's it.

Blueberry coffee

I'm from Long Island and we drink more 7-11 coffee than the entire state of California. That's where I first discovered the flavour a while back. I wrote it off as blasphemy for years until I got the balls to try it. One of my steady favourites. The blueberry taste isn't overpowering and mixes well with the light roast. Put a little more milk in than usual and it tastes like you're drinking a warm blueberry Pop Tart.

Day Off

A nice warm house, a snowstorm outside, and the knowledge that you have the next day off.

- TastyBrainMeats

Seems Counter-intuitive, But... 

Coffee and a nap.A Napuccino.

Slam a coffee and take a 20-30 minute nap/rest (no more than 30 mins). It allows your veins to dilate and absorb the caffeine more efficiently, making you more energized upon getting up!

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

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.

People Explain Which Professions They Have Absolutely No Respect For

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?"
