Life hacks are a staple of the Internet. Either lazy people want to figure out how to become lazier, or some brainiac thinks they can game the system by going to the hardware store and ZIP TYING EVERYTHING. While some life hacks can certainly help you save time and money, most of the hacks that you'll find online are not only a waste of time, but they make you look like a complete idiot.

Sometimes, there just isn't an easier way to do something. Of course, that doesn't mean innovative people haven't tried! Unfortunately those are just two life hacks that actually make things worse somehow.

Check out this list of the world's worst life hacks and make sure that you don't look like a fool in front of your friends and family.
