It's time for rich people games!

You know what I mean - that thing we all do where we daydream about what shenanigans we would get into if we had unlimited funds? This time, we're focusing on our homes... which seems extra poignant considering the housing crisis thousands of people are facing.


Reddit user "breathingsaveslives" asked:

What ridiculous features would you put in your house if you had a ridiculous amount of money?

It you were expecting things like a helicopter pad, a giftwrapping room, or a personal Starbucks ... well... keep reading.

Pizza Party

"An outdoor brick oven for pizza. Then I'd hold pizza parties, instead of grill outs." - flpacsnr

"You don't need a lot of money for a pizza oven. I put together the jankiest oven for free and it gets above 700 degrees!" - myshkiny

"Definitely! And inside the pizza oven you could have a rotating stone baking surface, so you can have multiple pizzas gradually cooking as the stone rotates. Take a cooked pizza out, shove an uncooked one in, and it'll be cooked by the time it finishes its 360°." - green_meklar

Splash Pad

"Swimming pool in the basement designed to look like a cave." - ilike7hournaps

"Complete with a waterfall that's fed by a river that flows through the house starting from a fountain in the lobby. Also, behind the waterfall is a bar" - BigSwedenMan

"We current have a pool - it's nice. It's a standard in-ground pool with a diving board and slide. If I had unlimited $ I'd rebuilt it into a kind of grotto with caves, waterfalls, bridges, fountains, etc. It'd be awesome!" - HouseRenovations

The Horror-Movie House

GIF by Archives of Ontario | Archives publiques de l'Ontario Giphy

"A gigantic kitchen with plenty cabinets for all my things. It would include one of those industrial dishwashers that clean dishes super fast and easy. And appliances for whatever I want."

"Í would also get a nice, big dining-room for all the fancy dinner parties I would throw."

"My house would also have a garden with a lot of flowers, but not too much. I don't need bugs. I would have loads of flowers, and a raspberry bush. I would create a beautiful terrace to have tea on."

"As a kid, I sometimes visited this nice, old lady who lived in a big home. Her garden was amazing, with flowerbeds, and a terrace, and you could look at it from a balcony. All the way in the back was a wall, layered with raspberries."

"In the summer we were allowed to pick them, because this woman and her husband weren't gonna. Inside the house was kind of like a horror-movie: Confusing hallways, a dark attic, and a mysterious office. It was the ideal place for children to play hide and seek, and then finding a ghost or something." - ieatalot2004

Vacuum Walls

"There are these hidden baseboard vacuums where all you do is sweep towards the gap at the baseboard and it vacuums up everything. Definitely I would have that in the kitchen, bathroom, and near both entry doors." - okcallmegoddess_

"This is real?!? I want vacuum walls!" - breathingsaveslives

"The maintenance is difficult, and I've yet to see one functioning as intended after 5 years without being completely rebuilt."

"It's such a lovely idea that I really wish was executed better." - TragedyPronFamilyVid

10 Seconds

Cat Chores GIF Giphy

"I worked at a kitchen for a little while and they had this dish washer that you just slid the dirty dishes on a rack underneath it, pull down the handle and it jet washed them in 10 seconds." - [reddit]

"I mean in a restaurant those dishwashers are practical but why would you need it at home? How often are you going to need 30 plates cleaned in a minute and a half?" - MountainCandidate0

"Family of 4, eating 3 meals in a day is 12 freakin' plates, forks and approximately 30 toddler cups because they somehow vanish into a black hole."

"Every day is a full load of dishes in the dishwasher. Miss one load and the sink is too full to get sh*t done."

"Full load of dishes in 10 seconds? Hell yeah!" - ihaveabibledegree

Going On Tour

Water Bathing GIF by Salesforce Giphy

"I'd want a bath on rails that takes me out of my bathroom and through a very slow tour of my pirvate and secluded garden while I wash." - Auserna

"I didn't know it, but now I want a toilet version of this" - ggrindelwald

Rich Friend

fish koi GIF Giphy

"Had a rich friend. She had a large koi carp pond with stepping stones that you had to cross in order to reach the main bedroom."

"And then the door to the bedroom was some sort of round thing that you rolled aside to enter. Since seeing it I've always wanted exactly that." - pawnografik

Access

Design Architecture GIF by Savaria Giphy

"An elevator for my disabled boyfriend." - goldenalpha207

"I came here to say "an elevator for my cat to go into the garden dowstairs", and now I feel bad." - lbpixels

Dungeon Master

Dungeons And Dragons Dnd GIF by Nerdist.com Giphy

"I'd pay people to sit in a room all day and night. When I'm in the mood, they have to play dungeons and dragons or magic the gathering with me. They would live on my estate with up to 10 chosen friends or family, they would earn a nice salary."

"They would all have a copy of the Player's Handbook and I would have two butlers, Jeeves and Alfred, to bring me rulebooks upon demand."

"Jeeves would double as the rules lawyer. Got a question? Ask Jeeves." - chubbychaseryou

As if being a mom isn't hard enough, why does society want to heap on more stress. Women who can breastfeed need to be able to breastfeed. They need to do it whenever and wherever.

This has been a contentious, dramatic issue for generations. Some people just can't handle a boob out in public. A boob that is nourishing a child, I might add. When you're hungry, you don't want to wait, so why should a mom, make her baby wait until a more "appropriate" time?

God grow up.

Redditor u/Brace4Landing wanted to chat about what women have to do what they do, by asking:

What are your thoughts about women breastfeeding openly in restaurants?

Our society has a lot of strange ideas about masculinity. In fact, we have such a string of contradicting and misleading pieces of information on how a man "should" act that it has created a very emotionally stunted pool of men in the United States.

And it's usually traits that differ from this path of "most masculine" that, ironically, make us appealing to potential mates. When people look for a partner, they usually look for some preliminary signs of who that person is, and these are some of the traits that most stuck out upon first impression.

Have you ever found yourself handing over some hard-earned money while wondering "why am I even paying for this?"

There are some things that absolutely should be "free" - or at least not an extra fee on top of some already-paid money. So let's talk about them.

Generations are sometimes a little confusing. What makes up a generation? Is it their ages or year they were born? Is it what was happening politically during the formative years? Is it the economic landscape that either afforded or denied certain life expectations? Maybe it's the technology that they had access to.

According to the Pew Research Center, it's all of these things and more. All of these factors can influence a generations understanding of the world and ultimately their thoughts as the move through it.

Depending on what generation you're from, you might have seen the drastic shift from records to CDs to Spotify, from payphones and landlines to cellphones.

Marked by technology and pop culture references, the older generations might actually look to Gen Z, the iGen, with pitty for never truly understanding the struggle of walking to school up hill both ways.

What are the struggles of the past that young people today really won't understand unless they were there to experience it? We went to Ask Reddit to find out.
