People Share Things That Are Still Good Even If They're Bad

[rebelmouse-image 18357428 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

There's an old saying that bad pizza and bad sex are still both good. While I (and a LOT of people on Reddit) completely disagree on both counts - there's something to be said for the idea. One Reddit user asked:

Besides pizza and sex, what's something that's still pretty good when it's bad?

When we first started thinking about it, we couldn't really think of anything that was still good when it was bad... but the responses actually nailed a few! We're talking sick days, small paychecks, chow mein... click through for more stuff that's good even when it's bad.

Day "Off"

[rebelmouse-image 18349371 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Having the day off of work. Pretty much every time it happens, we just load ourselves up with work around the house but it's still good to be off. Just had a 4 day weekend; we painted the master bedroom.

Sucks, but days off, so it's a win

Sick Days

[rebelmouse-image 18348776 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Even when I'm sick I'll think "at least I can just sleep all day"

Who Cares If It's Wrong?

Old maps of the world, where half of the places are wrong or just made-up from hearsay.

Island of California, Kingdom of Prester John, Australo-Antarctico-Papua...

Entertainingly Bad

[rebelmouse-image 18357431 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

When a movie is so horrible, it's a lot of fun to watch.

Just Sleep

[rebelmouse-image 18354012 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Sleep. Bad sleep is far better for you than no sleep, by a long shot.

The Worse They Are, The Better

[rebelmouse-image 18357432 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Jokes. I absolutely love terrible jokes.

Donuts

[rebelmouse-image 18357433 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

While I've had widely varying levels of quality, I've never had a bad donut. A normal, store bought glazed donut that's been sitting out all day still sounds really appealing to me.

New Recipe

[rebelmouse-image 18357434 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Chow Mein noodles from Panda Express. When they changed the recipe to make it "healthier", I didn't like it, but it did the job. Was not great, but just decent enough. Still not as good as the hole-in-the-wall, greasy, Chinese fast food chow mein.

Cars

[rebelmouse-image 18357435 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Borrowing one from Jeremy Clarkson: Cars. You may hate everything about a certain model of car, but if it's in decent condition, it can still get you from point A to point B cost-effectively and conveniently.

Just Get The Job Done

[rebelmouse-image 18355631 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A drink. As long as you still get drunk.

Fishing

[rebelmouse-image 18351599 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My dad used to take me to the local park where there was a small lake for fishing when I was a kid. We had a lot of fun just talking, relaxing and playing with our dog. We never got a single nibble.

Years later he told me that the lake was manmade and not stocked with fish. He just thought it was fun.

Good dad!

Hi Mom

Flaming Dumpster Pile In Culinary Form

[rebelmouse-image 18357437 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Nachos. Even if it is just chips with bulk-bought cheese sauce and some jalapenos, it is a good snack.

I regularly get a very specific craving for the s* nachos a bar I used to work at served. They were cheap tortilla chips from Costco, nalley chili beans, pre-shredded waxy-as-hell "fiesta" cheese mix thrown into a salamander (basically a commercial-grade broiler) and then topped with canned salsa and sour cream.

A flaming dumpster pile in culinary form, but my god do I yearn for them on cold and lonely nights.

Doesn't Even Matter What Kind

[rebelmouse-image 18357438 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Dumplings. Doesn't even matter what kind of dumpling it is. Gyoza, pierogi, gnocchi, whatever. Dumplings are the best, even a crappy dumpling is still better than most food.

Best Served Cold

[rebelmouse-image 18355604 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Revenge. Sweet, untraceable revenge...

Bad Bread Is Not A Thing

[rebelmouse-image 18357440 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Bread.

Even the cheapest, mass produced, most preservative filled bread is still pretty good. I don't think I've ever eaten bad bread.

Go Browns

[rebelmouse-image 18357441 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Going to a football game. Even if your team doesn't win a single fing game, at least you still got to dress up and get sfaced with thousands of other screaming fanatics.

Go Browns

No Regrets

[rebelmouse-image 18357443 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

A workout. Even at my worst workouts I've never regretted it.

Wake Up

[rebelmouse-image 18357444 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Coffee. Bad coffee is definitely worse than no coffee.

Money Is Always The Right Answer

[rebelmouse-image 18357445 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Paychecks. Even a small one is money.

It's understandable why so many people are afraid of the dark.

There is no clear sight ahead, no telling who might be around, not to mention being even more attuned to every sound you hear in your periphery.

There's simply no telling what may happen to you when you're out alone in the dark.

Unfortunately, nothing can stop the same things from happening to you in broad daylight.

Indeed, the most terrifying things many people ever experienced happened when the sun was shining high.

While people try their best to be pleasant, sometimes we are so wrapped up in our own worlds that we don't realize some of our behaviors or actions aren't appreciated by everyone.

Things like talking on the phone in a public place or listening to music without headphones have become so normal that people don't always realize others may be irritated by this behavior.

Perhaps one reason horror films are so popular is that people know they are watching a work of fiction.

As soon as they leave the theatre or turn off the TV, they are out of the terrifying world they've been a part of for two hours but got the rush of adrenaline they need, similar to riding a roller coaster or thrill ride.

For this reason, no movie, TV show, or book, no matter how scary they are, can never equal being scared in real life.

As finding yourself, or worse your family, in a dangerous and/or life-threatening situation is an experience so terrifying, it genuinely defies description.

One of the hardest things in the world is being able to afford life's necessities. We all work and make money (or have parents that do), but having money and being able to afford what you need are two different things.

I'm not just talking about the latest gadgets, either.

Not having a fancy knife set or the newest Apple Watch won't destroy your life.

I'm talking about the things so vital to our survival that they should be cheap, but are actually near impossible to afford.

Redditors know this to be true and are ready to share what some of those vital things are.
