Life Hack to Improve Your LifeThe Dark Herald
Don’t watch life hack videos.
That’s really good advice and is a more useful life hack than you will see on any current year life hack video.
There was a time, when YouTube was quite a lot newer, that there was some effort put into these things. They were fun and clever and occasionally even worth trying. Life hacks were exercises in lateral thinking. You might or might not be coming up with a better approach to something but at least you were thinking about it instead of just reacting to a stimulus.
But the content providers eventually discovered that they were getting just as views for low to zero effort “tips and tricks.”
What was the point in trying hard when the results of zero effort were indistinguishable?
Which led to this garbage.
The irony of the effort I put into this post is not lost on me.
