27 Incredibly Helpful Life Hacks You Didn't Know You Needed

Trivial things ruining your life? You're welcome.

Tin Opener 2 Life isn't meant to be easy, but since evolution and civilisation removed the ever-present threat of being mauled by a sabre-toothed tiger, or spontaneously dying of a disease with a fashionable name like Shingles or Scabies at any moment, humanity has developed some new annoyances to trip us up. It might seem incredibly pointless to lose your mind and your temper over a kettle being under-filled, or the frankly impossible task of opening anything that is vacuum sealed in plastic, but these are the things behind stress balding, sudden, explosive rage and that faint, dull ache that shoots down your left arm every now and then. Luckily, however, the Internet is full of handy life-saving tips that can help you: those delightful hacks that stop the red-eyed rage monster from ruining your day and stripping years off your life for the most ludicrous of reasons. By way of a dishonourable mention, while it might be useful to open blister packs with a tin opener - as the majority of the internet will tell you - you will also ruin your hands in the process, cutting every one of your fingers to an unsightly mess of bloody ribbons that you won't be able to use on the thing you were trying to open in the first place. So be wary of any hacks that don't masquerade as helpful, despite obviously being deceptively murderous. You're welcome.
