The Simpsons has been around since the dawn of time. Sure, we give it credit for constantly predicting the future, but we always forget that it was also filled with sage wisdom.

If you go back and give it another watch, you'll see that there are multiple lifehacks that we totally missed because we weren't paying any attention at the time.

1. I would like to bring the Sarcasm Detector to any event where people don't speak my language.
