Go to the store to purchase ingredients. Blow off work to spend 6 hours looking for tiny bear-shaped cookie cutter. Settle for large-ish poodle shaped cutter. Follow recipe. While waiting for them to cool, spend 20 minutes trying to decide whether they are spelled “gummy bears” or “gummi bears.” Taste gummy/gummi bears and recoil because they are disgusting, and far too large. Remember that you hate gummy bears, and your life. Eat gummy bears anyway.

{life hacks} I Tried A Bunch of Those Viral “Life Hacks” So You Don’t Have To

I’m sure by now you have seen countless viral emails and Facebook posts sharing “life hacks” offering ideas on how to use simple, everyday ideas and items to make your life easier. Well, I thought I’d try a few out and let you know how it went.

Don’t miss: 

“Pancake Mix in a Ketchup Bottle”

Here is a riddle: what’s white, viscous, and doesn’t go easily through a funnel? If you answered “pancake mix” you’re right. If you put pancake mix in a ketchup bottle, is it truly a “no-mess experience?” Once the mix is in there, maybe. But you have to get the pancake mix into the ketchup bottle first. Which makes an ungodly mess. And not to be judgy, but if you have time to put your pancake mix in a bottle and all, wouldn’t that time have been better spent making tastier pancake mix from scratch? I’m just sayin’. But yeah, don’t do this.
