Diply 7 Sep 2017

It's just come to my realization that I've been doing many simple, everyday tasks all wrong. Apparently doing these things in the easiest and most obvious manner is incorrect.

Think you know the right way to fill your gas tank? Nope. Thankfully we have these geniuses to show us our mistakes.

1. I always used to lay on the actual mat for the sake of comfort, but obviously I've been doing it all wrong. I'm glad this guy could show me the right way.

2. It turns out you've been using your iPad wrong all this time. It's actually meant to be used like a bulky, oversized cell phone that looks totally normal to use in public.

6. If you thought the proper way to fill up was to actually insert the nozzle, think again! Stand back a few feet and shoot the gas from a distance. The fuel combines with oxygen and becomes much more efficient.
