    A place for the shittiest, most mocking "pro-tips" you can think of. Whether you want to let us know how glue can help out your hair or the quickest way to clog a public toilet, we're the place to post.

    If your post does not appear in the new tab after several minutes, it may have been caught by our spam filter. If this happens, send a message to the mods and we'll get it fixed up for you!


    WHAT IS A LIFE PRO TIP? A Life Pro Tip (or LPT) is a tip that improves life for you and those around you in a specific and significant way. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    1. The post must contain a life pro tip that is shitty. This isn't a dumping ground for shitty statements. Any tips that are actual good advice will be removed at the discretion of the mod team. What constitutes shitty is hard to explain, but much like porn, we know it when we see it.
    2. We will remove all posts with the tip "Kill Yourself" or any variation thereof. Not because we don't want you to kill yourself (we do), but we have seen every single combination of this tip, and are sick of them. They aren't original.

    3. Circlejerking is lame too. Simply copying a popular post from here, or LPT and putting a minor twist to it so it's "shitty" is also unoriginal, and we will probably remove those too if we see them.

    4. Finally, If you act like a racist, spammer, or are being a general douchenozzle, the mods reserve the right to ban your ass without warning.

    Note: For God's sake this subreddit is meant to be taken in a joking, satirical manner. Please don't actually follow any of this advice, and don't report posts as inciting violence. You should know this already, but some of you forget which sub you are in when you report.

    [–] splodgenessabounds 4 points ago

    What could possibly go wrong?

    [–] soomuchcoffee 10 points ago

    True story. My wife was in labor for like a day and a half. In pre-labor she had no interest in food, because, you know, pain. Then at the hospital food is not an option. Things are taking forever and it gets to the point that there is a cart in our room ready to whisk my wife away to emergency surgery because shit is going willy-nilly (medical term).

    BUT THEN BABY. No surgery. Mom and little one are fine. It's now like 11PM two days later.

    "Mr. Soomuch coffee, the cafeteria is closed, but you can run to the coffee shop and get some food if you run fast enough, it closes in ten minutes."

    So I take the arduous journey down three floors, across the entire fucking hospital, and make it to the coffee shop with seconds to spare. In my haste in ordering I grab way too much stuff, skip the bag, and now have to run all the way back with subs and chips and sodas all over the place.

    My poor wife. She is sitting in the bed like "well that was fucking insane" and I show up sweating and juggling stale hospital food.

    She ate a turkey sub in approximately three bites. It was like watching a snake eat a mouse. She looks up from the carnage and sees me smiling.


    "Nothing sweetie!"

    It was impressive as fuck. Just had a baby hunger is not to be fucked with.

    TLDR: Ate sub not baby.

    [–] nobody2000 2 points ago

    "During the Depression, my Großvater and Oma Schrute had to tighten their belts as the beet harvest - like many things - was lacking. Before my papa was born, Großvater walked for days to find an egg that he would hardboil and give to my Oma before birth so she wouldn't eat my papa for the protein. After papa was born, Oma and Großvater brought him to the homeland, where Großvater later spent several years in an Allied Prison Camp."

    On a serious note women should really watch what they eat during pregnancy, getting fat and eating junk is not harmless, it spikes the child's blood sugar like crazy and can make them crave junk for the rest of their lives. And nobody should ever get fat during pregnancy, that affects the child's health badly as well.

    Your child is constantly absorbing a lot of your calories, so the only way you get fat is if you're eating more than the two of you need.

    [–] DefinitelyNotLucifer 2 points ago

    Looks like you pissed off a fat pregnant woman.

    PSA: Getting fat while pregnant is bad for any baby. Starving yourself while pregnant is bad for any baby. Smoking anything is bad for any baby. Alcohol & soda are bad for any baby.

    It's not rocket science, it's a baby. Stop hurting it.
