The old saying goes, "Quality over quantity." Instead of having a lot of something that's only just okay, it's better to have one thing of that's been made really well. Sure, having one hand-crafted table might be better than having twenty IKEA tables, but sometimes it's not always about the quality. Occasionally it does help to have more of one thing than simply one really nice thing.


Reddit user, u/powerspyin1, wanted to know when more actually is better when they asked:

When is Quantity more important than Quality?

Make It Mountain Sized

Fried rice from that cheap chinese place down the road.

Air.

Trapped under water I'd rather have an unlimited supply of the worst China class smog than 15 minutes of Fiji Air.

Well I'll take a box of old dirty quarters over a handful of shiny ones.

As Long As It Fills You

When you're poor, food.

I'd rather have a kitchen full of semi healthy stuff that will last than a few healthy items

So Long As They Both Do The Same Job

I'd say when quality becomes superfluous.

If you were building a house, you could spend tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars on custom tooled boron carbide meme nails, that will literally shred steel before they so much as scratch. Or you could spend only a few hundred (at the most) on regular carpenters nails. They will both do the same job, to the level of expectations that you would require, but one choice would be significantly cheaper, in a way quantity can be it's own quality.

The Quality Of Water Doesn't Matter So Much When You're Burning Down

When you need water to put out a fire.

A Little Better Every Day

In practice. For example: spending 100 days doing bad drawings will teach you more about drawing than 100 days trying to perfect one piece.

Pens.

No matter the quality, you will always lose them.

Yep. I'm writing this into my will. Thank you. Some day my family will laugh at my funeral and it will be my last goofy thing.

Edit: all you bloody americans stop trying to work my single word response to a question into your corrupt and frankly proposterous election system or whatever the hell you guys have over there. No country has quality voters as a majority and you need to majority to win elections. MAJORITY OF THE VOTES ARE IMPORTANT AS THE QUESTION ASKED ABOUT A SCENARIO WHERE QUANTITY WAS IMPORTANT. sheesh you guys and your electoral whatnots i do not give a single bold headed f-ck.

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"

People Dispel Common Hoaxes Some Folks Still Believe

Those who are truly superstitious have trouble shaking off customs which others might find somewhat silly.

These include holding your breath when passing a cemetery, throwing salt over your shoulder after spilling it, or not stepping on cracks for fear of breaking their mother's backs.

But even though it has been irrefutably proven that there is absolutely no validity to these superstitions, these same people will likely never stop performing these customs.

Nor will some others ever stop believing myths and hoaxes which have likewise proven to be one-hundred percent false.

Redditor Jimbo_Jigs was curious to learn the things people will never stop believing, despite ample evidence to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What is proven to be a hoax but people still believe it to be true?"
