32 Genius Discoveries The Internet Blessed Us With

The internet is a wonderful place, full of all the truths and mysteries of the world. It has it all — endless videos, gifs, memes, news, witty banter, and more.

But sometimes, the web is about more than just frivolity and mischief. Once in a while, the internet blesses us with genius discoveries we never knew, nor ever would have thought of. Here are 16 of the most genius!

1. Let's face it. No one ever puts that bag clip thing back on the bread, right? 

Twitter | @itsxio

And even if some nerd or whatever does, eventually they run out of bread. It's a pain. Here's a better and easier way to use that plastic thingy.

2. No bowl? No problem.

Cut open the cereal box, slice through the bag, and pour the milk right in. There's no need for any real clean up after you're done, and that's what we call a win-win situation.

At least for your taste buds.

3. This lady figured out an even better use for those visors in cars. 

Twitter | @kalebvn

Don't just block out the sun, block out the whole car ride by hanging your iPad there and enjoying a nice Netflix binge.

Phew, almost had to interact with people for a second.

4. Sometimes, you don't want to be bothered with holding your plate or leaning over a TV stand to eat. 

Twitter | @jausepher

No worries! A toilet seat will work perfectly fine as a place to eat. Uh, it might be a good idea to wash it first, though.

5. Vodka burrito is the newest and most clever way to sneak alcohol into a festival. 

Twitter | @jodiekinzzz

Who would ever suspect your burrito was filled with anything else other than delicious goodness? The answer is no one.

6. No one hangs up pants anyway, but you know what I would use those pants hangers to hang up? 

Twitter | @alsonblack

You guessed it: chips. Actually, any snack that comes in a bag.

7. I knew those ice trays had a better purpose than freezing water. 

Twitter | @sheldonAvaughn

Who wants to wait for their water to freeze anyway? A chicken nugget holder? Now, that's something I can get behind.

8. I suppose this genius discovery is for the people that don't own a toaster oven, an oven, or a stove top... 

Twitter | @nothinbutlag

This genius idea applies to only a select audience, but it still works.

9. Don't let not having an iron stop you from having a crisp, wrinkle-free shirt. 

Reddit | sarinshards

Be like this genius! Heat up a pan on the stove and iron that shirt fresh, Iron Man.

10. I've never been a fan of these types of containers, because no one tells me how much I can eat of something.

Twitter | @badgalrhyy

However, this is a great use of this tupperware and true portion control.

11. For this genius discovery to work, you have to know how to draw well and use a pair of scissors. 

Instagram | @clemensgerlach

Despite that, it's just so beautiful and genius, it had to be shared.

12. Those dividers between booths go down! 

Twitter | @2flyyyy_

I guess this is a genius discovery if you enjoy having conversations with strangers at your local IHOP. Maybe it's a great way to meet new people!

13. These parking spots have their lines painted on the barriers in front, making it easier to see where you are when you're pulling into a spot.

Reddit | ebflaherty

And removing excuses for line-straddlers.

14. Want to convince your Facebook friends that you were closer to the action than you really were? 

Instagram | @will_ent

Take a pic through your binoculars to get a sweet pic as if you were front and center.

15. Need a laugh?

Instagram | @kalesalad

The internet has everything, including photos of a 89-year-old grandma who discovered photography and can't stop taking self-portraits. Her name is Kimiko Nishimoto. Do yourself a favor and appreciate how amazing she is.

16. Here's a fun fact for you...

Reddit | suavepov

If you bring an Apple remote into a lecture hall and press play, it will control all of the Macbooks that have their Bluetooth turned on. Use that information however you please.

17. Solid. I don't mind buying twice as much tortilla if it means I can recover the drippings without using a fork. 

Imgur | Imgur

Honestly, I didn't order tacos because I wanted to use a fork, y'all.

18. Everyone knows you're only a true Instagram star if you take your photos on a white rug. 

Twitter | @kenya_fuentes

So, sometimes you have to improvise with whatever you can find at home. TBH, I'd rather have a cat than a stupid fur rug.

19. I don't know, I feel like this version is both better and more challenging than the real Guess Who.

Instagram | @kalesalad

Any version where "is your person staring at you uncomfortably" counts as a valid question is automatically the best version.

20. Sneaky, sneaky genius.

Instagram | @kalesalad

Honestly, who wants to pay $87 for a bag of popcorn and a sip of Pepsi when you can fill your belly with dollar store treats, both before and during the movie! And guys, a beer belly illusion works the same way.

21. This is so sweet it makes my teeth itch. And they say romance is dead? Not according to this person.

Instagram | @will_ent

If I'm being real though, his girl looks a little sketchy.

22. A genius idea can also be disgusting. 

Reddit | iliyax

I admire the pure innovation, but I also want to throw up in my mouth. Imagine being the next person to try and make coffee in that pot.

23. Ice cream without the screaming, the mess, and the sticky fingers. 

Reddit | roostein

This should have been patented years ago. I am severely disappointed with the human race. Shame on you, stupid mortals. Do better next time.

24. Top-tier business savvy, these girls run the world.

Twitter | @cassiehusnu

If I'm coming out of a dispensary all set for a day of snacks and playing Buck Bumble on N64, I better make sure I got Girl Scout cookies to round it out.

25. Honestly, a fool-proof solution to a very real problem.

Twitter | @CalcaterraRay

The thing that's genius about this is that everyone will secretly be wondering why you're carrying a loaf of bread, and they'll silently appreciate the fashion decision.

26. If you're looking for a way to buy time on a completely empty parking meter, look no further. 

Reddit | WutUtalkingBoutWill

I am both entertained and impressed. I guess you should always be ready to pull a prank.

27. Because plain water is BASIC!!!

Twitter | @Knifti

This just upped everyone's water game to a whole new level. Gone are the days of drinking boring plain water — it's time to get hella bougie.

28. We've all dreamed of having a wine dispenser. 

Twitter | @iliketweet

This woman just figured out how to do it, and blessed the internet with her genius. We are not worthy! We are not worthy!

29. This idea may be playing a dangerous game with the forces of freshness, but somehow, it seems worth it.

Instagram | @memelif3

It's probably best to try it with those little variety packs of cereal unless you've got the perfect craft project in mind that uses stale cereal.

30. If you don't have a plastic bag, I'm sure a traffic cone would do the trick!

Twitter | @_evamariie

At least, that's what I thought she was wearing on her head when I first saw this.

31. As much as some of us don't like admitting it, this reminds us that some of the best ideas come straight from mama.

Instagram | Instagram

And I have to admit that almost every day she told me to take a sweater was a day I needed one.

32. I'm ashamed to admit that I never realized this guy was using a pair of pants the whole time.

Instagram | @will_ent

I was already pretty impressed that he made a fake jacket, but now I'm willing to crown this genius as MacGyver's successor.
