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.

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.

Voters

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.

People Share TV Shows From Their Childhood That No One Seems To Remember
Hanna-Barbera Cartoons

When I was a kid, I would occasionally watch this show called Big Bag. It went off the air more than 20 years ago and it seemed to only play at five or six in the morning. If I happened to wake up early, I'd catch it. It was targeted toward preschool viewers and was fun and silly, a partnership between Cartoon Network and what is now the Sesame Workshop.

Sometimes I wonder if I'm the only person who remembers it existed. But I'm not the only one with this kind of dilemma.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor LegitimateMangoHeir asked the online community,

"What's a show from your childhood that no one else seems to remember?"

People Share The Real Reason They Sleep Naked

Finding the right pajamas can be a fairly stressful ordeal.

Which is perhaps why some people choose to forgo pajamas all together, and sleep in the nude.

No doubt saving people hundreds of dollars on what they might otherwise have spent on a pair of pajamas.

But in addition to being economical, people no doubt have countless reasons for their natural choice of sleepwear.

Or lack thereof.

Redditor -TheMidpoint- was curious to hear why people opted to sleep in the buff, leading them to ask:

"People who sleep naked, why?"
