There are so many things that have been invented over time that were meant to enlighten and enhance our lives. And many have... the car, the movies, cellphones... snuggies. But many things that have been produced that really just bring down morale and cease any reason to live. I jest, it's not that serious, but it's close. There are just a few things we can all do without and wish we could make disappear.

Redditor StonerCPA wanted everyone to admit... What would you un-invent, if you could?

Pay the piper!

Giphy

Payday loans. Damn predatory pigs.

That's not real work..

Telemarketing

Is unsolicited calls about political candidates considered telemarketing? If not, F whatever that is!!

Caragor

Brilliant!

Un-invent the wheel so I could re-invent it and be famous for the most important invention of all time.

PurpuraHumanum

Just give me gas!!

The stupid impossible to use gas can spouts.

Chip89

Useless!!!

Keurig cups.

The guy that invented them publicly regrets it. Shows how one person can really make an impact.

UsernameNumberThree

A ton of waste in exchange for a modicum of convenience.

Save the animals!

Styrofoam. That stuff is terrible.

Landmines.

Living in Croatia, can confirm. To hell with landmines. When I was a kid, parents took me to the countryside once. Me and my sister were having a walk trough some field when suddenly some older man warns us to stop and get back on track. Turns out the area still wasn't 100% cleared of mines. There's still thousands of them in Croatia from the war.

Education for all....

Giphy

Student loans. There is no way the cost of an education would have spiked as much as it did without them.

Amen!

Giphy

Reality TV.

mcloaded

Gross addiction!

Giphy

Cigarettes.

The five-day work week.

9/80 and 4/10 schedules make so much more sense than the traditional 5/8s. I honestly have no clue why more businesses don't offer their employees custom work schedules. It doesn't cost the company anything and allows employees the luxury of a day off (or even a 3-day weekend) every week or every 2 weeks.

Any engaged couple looks forward to the big day when after months of planning, they get to tie the knot and declare their love in front of family and friends.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
