One of the cardinal rules of engagement on the internet is Don’t Read the Comments. But if, like us, you spend the better part of your day scouring the internet for tips on the best way to eat a sandwich or which organisational tool will help you get your chores done, this sanity-saving tactic could be working against you.
Redditor lancertons makes a great point in his lifehacks subreddit post: When you see a great life hack, the comments probably have good, if not great, life hack examples. While the thread itself devolved into hilarious chaos, the point is still valid.
Here at Lifehacker, we often find that our readers’ hacks are as good as, if not slightly better, than our own.
