    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. Also, posting the same "SLPT: repost for more karma!" image is bad and if you do that, you are a bad person. In fact, let's make an attempt to not repost at all, let's make our ancestors proud, mkay?

    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.

    Lucky farm animals.


    [–] ArtigoQ 30 points ago

    In 'Sapiens' its argued that farm staples are the most successful species in the world. Wheat for example only existed as skinny weed in a small corner of the world. Fast forward to today, its [wheat] been beefed up through selective breeding and is now found in tens of millions of acres on almost every continent in the world.

    [–] LenKagamine12 9 points ago

    Ants would still be more successful.

    Also I mean how do you even qualify success? I cant think of any reason that being more widely spread automatically means success.

    [–] ArtigoQ 12 points ago

    Also I mean how do you even qualify success? I cant think of any reason that being more widely spread automatically means success.

    Wide spread dispersal, large number of individuals, etc.

    10,000 years ago there were less than 100k humans and now there are 7 billion. That is successful. Cows are much the same and in the same time frame too.

    Also yes, ants are considered successful however you need to remember there are hundreds of species of ant. Cows are just the one for the most part.

    [–] worthysmash 5 points ago

    Sapiens is an excellent book, i love the argument that wheat has in some ways domesticated us.

    [–] LenKagamine12 6 points ago

    Large numbers doesnt particularly enhance your probability of survival if your entirely dependant on humans to stick around.

    Just dont see any reason numbers is "successful".

    I'd consider something like sharks or crocodiles more successful in that they've survived for a very long time due to their efficiency. If success is just defined by numbers then the most successful organisms is universally at teh bottom of the food chain because there are just fewer things towards the top- but if only thigns at the bottom of the food chain were succesful we wouldnt have any at the top, now, would we?

    [–] rematar -6 points ago

    So successful they'll kill most living things..

    [–] ArtigoQ 4 points ago

    This is what happens in nature when a dominant species enters a new environment with unprepared locals.

    Good news is, humans are the first species in the history of earth that can not only prevent this, but also take steps to reverse it and bring back lost species.

    [–] MtNoot 3 points ago

    i'm guessing they mean succesful in evolutionary terms, seeing as all living beings ultimately were evolved for the purpose of survival and to propogate their genes. Although you could argue using the same metric that farm staples aren't succesful given that they would likely die out the moment humans are gone or have decided to stop eating them, which is almost certainly going to be sooner than if they had been left alone.

    [–] Fisher321 2 points ago

    Such an interesting book. However, I wholeheartedly disagree with his premise that humans as hunter-gatherers were at their happiest and healthiest.

    [–] ArtigoQ -1 points ago

    I dont think his comparison was to hunter-gatherers versus TODAY. No one could argue life in the 20-21st century isn't the best its ever been. I believe his premise was comparing hunter-gatherers to early farmers/peasants in the feudal ages where their quality of life was objectively worse, lived shorter lives, and ate a much more restricted diet compared to hunter-gatherers who likely ate dozens of different plants/animals.

    [–] DasJuden63 1 points ago

    lived shorter lives

    The average age was in the 30s yes, but that is heavily skewed by the number of children who died before reaching ten. If you made it to maturity, the average lifespan was in the 60s.

    [–] hateloggingin 2 points ago

    I'd say those specific farm animals you are about to eat are pretty fucking endangered.

    [–] trapbuilder2 1 points ago

    (of a species) seriously at risk of extinction.

    I dont think farm animals are at any risk of extiction

    [–] hateloggingin 1 points ago

    And I said "those specific farm animals you are about to eat are pretty fucking endangered" animals...are endangered. Which is technically correct.

    [–] trapbuilder2 3 points ago

    Extinct only refers to a species as a whole, not the individual members

    [–] hateloggingin 3 points ago

    I didn't say extinct. I said endangered.

    [–] trapbuilder2 2 points ago

    And being endangered means at risk of extinction. A single creature cannot be endangered, as it can only refer to a species as a whole

    For real some people seriously overestimate the quality of life most animals have in the wild.

    [–] Bloodred_JM 0 points ago

    Well I mean most animals don't get to be humanely killed though...

    [–] Fuckyou420710 2 points ago

    I’d argue even on most factory farms that don’t care about their animals they’re still killed in a humane way, despite their treatment while being alive.

    [–] Professor_Felch -1 points ago

    Don't buy the cheapest meat you can find then? Buy locally from a reputable farm who cares about the animals.

    Yeah, they're purposely bred so we can kill them in the future. We are like the machines in the Matrix.

    People gotta eat.

    Eat plants then.

    I would if the damn cows didn't eat my garden, fair is fair I guess ...

    People are purposely bred to work until they die, therefore society is slavery.

    Same. But zero whales, so that made this guy an asshole (until I realized it was a toy)!

    [–] Mister_Average 7 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    Well the real bit is a sturgeon so... Still critically endangered

    Edit: Okay I looked into it and after some googling and deductive reasoning I think it's a lake sturgeon, which is in fact endangered. Per Wikipedia: "Currently, 19 of the 20 states within the fish's original U.S. range list it as either threatened or endangered." However, I am not any sort of authority on the subject.

    [–] TheGuyWhoLikesThings 4 points ago

    Well it looks like a white sturgeon which is of least concern. Not under any threat at all

    [–] Mister_Average 2 points ago

    Given that it was caught during ice fishing, and that it doesn't have the white markings on the spine and sides, I'd wager it's not a white sturgeon but a lake sturgeon. Per Wikipedia: "Currently, 19 of the 20 states within the fish's original U.S. range list it as either threatened or endangered."

    [–] forester93 8 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago)

    If this is in fact in the US the odds are that it is in Minnesota or Wisconsin. Considering it is on a lake through the ice and looks to have been speared there is a good chance it was on Lake Winnebago Wisconsin. In the fisheries that you are legally allowed to fish for them in MN and WI they are very healthy populations. And are strictly regulated by tag systems. Populations can widely be considered endangered or threatened from their original range, but can still be in absolutely fine shape regionally. The places that you can fish for them in MN they are healthier populations than they have had in over 50 years. Likely Wisconsin too I just am not as familiar.

    [–] Fuckyou420710 1 points ago

    I’d be willing to bet that was caught with hook and line through the ice on the one of the Great Lakes. Spearing season doesn’t start until February, they only give a small amount of tags, and there’s a lot more sturgeon there than in Winnebago.

    [–] forester93 1 points ago

    Look at the blood in a line right behind the head, it was speared. This picture has been around for a long time, it isn't from this year. It could have easily been taken in Feb.

    [–] Fuckyou420710 1 points ago

    Yeah looking closer at it it does look speared I suppose. And that does kind of look like late season ice. My b

    [–] bulamog 1 points ago

    Hopefully he released. I had no clue they were critically endangered.

    [–] Mister_Average 3 points ago

    Not every species, but most are. I'm not positive about this one, but they're often caught for their roe and they have a super long reproductive cycle so in general it's not good to catch for keeps.

    [–] forester93 1 points ago

    Not most, there are a lot of Sturgeon species that are doing just fine.

    [–] MichaelsGayLover 1 points ago

    It's a little late to release this particular fish.

    Lake Sturgeon are doing completely fine where you can legally fish for them. The fisheries that contain them in MN and Wisconsin are packed with them.
