I spent months and hundreds of dollars last year on my Halloween costume and didn't even place in the costume contest.
As with everything else, solve your miseries with money and use other people's ingenuity to for your own personal selfish gain! For this particular problem, just get this Rorschach Mask and wow away the competition. The inkblots actually animate and are affected by your breath.
Whilst intoxicated, I wandered into a dark corridor and was met with a man whose motives were questionable. Needless to say I feared for my life.
If I had a dollar for every time a would-be robber asked for my belt and I could have quickly pulled out a knife, I'd have zero dollars. But, this belt buckle knife still is an awesome idea to fend off potential attackers. Nothing is scarier than a man with a belt buckle knife and pants on the floor.

Playing World of Warcraft for 20 hours straight kinda makes my back hurt.
What are these things called chairs and desks? Why are we still using them? A flat piece of wood you sit on, then another piece of wood you put stuff on...how primitive. It's time get with the times with... the *explosions* Emperor Workstation! Pretend you're in the matrix while playing Words with Friends on Facebook!
Remember back when you were just a wee little lad; when you had no responsibilities and the three things on your todo list for the day were: find worms, eat worms, and play with Steve from across the street? It’s depressing now to think about how you’ll never be as happy and carefree without using hard drugs as you were back when you were young. We now have Xboxes, PS3s, strip clubs, and Pinterest, but what about good ol’ fashion fun? The things we’d enjoy….
My balls itch, but I'm in a 2 hour meeting.
Maybe this is one area where it's better to be in the 3rd world, where guys probably scratch their itchy balls whenever they freakin' like. Living in an uptight first world mean we must scratch our balls with this silver plated ballscratcher which I would have mistaken for a spoon if it didn't say "Ballscratcher" on the box. Scratch balls discretely, yours or another's, with this.
My buddies and I went hunting and they all killed something for mounting except me.
Bear and tiger head mounts are for wimps. If I'm going to have a trophy, it's going to be of a real mother effin dead person. Talk about of discussion starter! Buy it for only 100 grand and start thinking of a cool story of how you kidnapped and put him on a remote island and started hunting him like game.

I used a new bottle of $600 bottle of cologne, but didn't get any compliments.
Sex Panther Cologne, son. We're lucky enough to live in an age where we can buy fake products in movies we've paid to watch! Consumerism at its finest! Apply it to any exposed skin and pour a generous amount down the front of pants. Then scream "60% of the time, it works every time," so we all know you've seen the movie.
I wish I could go to work in my pajamas.
This has been the dream of men around the world. To get out of bed and go straight to work without changing pants, and to lounge around work in enviable comfortableness while making fun of Steve in his wool suit. The geniuses at Betabrand have started a new fashion revolution with these, and hell they look better than my real dress pants.
Should I ask my girlfriend to marry me? I can't make up my mind!
Ask the cat. What? Ask the cat in the box. That's right, Schrödinger's Cat Decision Maker will answer that question for you by either being dead or alive (we're assuming dead = no and alive = yes, but perhaps the opposite for your engagement question). Ask it a question and the cat will flash between dead and alive.
Every passing day brings us closer and closer to the 2012 Apocalypse as predicted by the Mayan who carved ‘December 21st, 2012’ and then quit his job because he was sick of it and wanted to be a DJ. I know what you’re all thinking; “How am I suppose to live my cushy first world life when the world is in chaos and the Starbucks across the street is on fire?” Don’t panic! We got you here at First World Living, though you may have….
I've been peer-pressured into going camping but haven't watched any of my DVRed Man vs. Wild.
You've heard the saying: 'I feel naked without my phone.' Well you're gonna be feeling naked with doo-doo all over your butt when you're out in the dark, dangerous wild when your iPhone runs out of juice. BioLite's Campstove burns off twigs instead of fuel and converts heat in electric energy so you can charge your devices.
The gravy touched the rice so I had to throw away my entire dinner.
It's heartbreaking to throw away Foie Gras, but you have no choice since your food has been defiled. This food separator is technically used for portion control, but we live in America hahaha. This handy item keeps food items separated so your gravy doesn't soak your biscuit or your salad doesn't get into your grilled bald eagle.
I hate having to go buy my girlfriend...ah screw it, just read the solution...
For the ladies, and the fellas who are into weird shit, but mostly just for the ladies: The DivaCup, a menstrual alternative, ends hassles with unreliable disposable tampons and sanitary pads in endless absorbencies, shapes and styles. /copy&paste. From what I've heard, it's a real first world solution and worth looking into.
That son of a bitch fly just landed on my freshly made tiramisu cake! Now I have to throw the whole thing away...
Look at that fly zipping around like he owns the place. Taunting you at every swipe you take and now you're out of breath because eating cake everyday is unhealthy for you. It's time to go terminator on Mr. Fly and bust a salt cap in his ass with your BUG-A-SALT!
Look at the picture above you. Look at that beautiful glistening bacon grease. Look at that chewy rubbery bacon fat. Look at that crispity crisp bacon edge. If this doesn’t make your mouth water, then you might as well become a vegan, you heathen. Why would you not want to surround yourself with the glorious smell of bacon wafting around you 24 hours of the day? Of course you do. Living a first world life means from the second you wake up to the the second you….
I've been watching reruns of Pimp My Ride and now want something inside the same larger thing.
How about a tiny house inside your house? The guys at Tumbleweed Tiny House Company sell ready made, kits, or plans of houses small enough that you don't need a permit to build. Use it as your bedroom or mancave or secret hideout in the woods where you kidnap and murder people or whatever.
I didn't get any compliments on my new watch.
Everybody has Rolexes these days, but who has a watch from mother effin Tron? This watch, technically called the Kisai 7 LED Watch, has two pulsating LED rings; one for the hour and the other for minutes. It reads like a conventional watch so you don't look stupid when someone asks you for the time and comes in blue or white colored LEDs.
A homeless man heard my pockets jingling after I told him I didn't have change. It was my keys.
We live in a modern world. There's no reason we should be keeping keys that access our expensive belongings on a flimsy metal rings that was probably invented 5,000 years ago. The Keyport consolidates up to 6 keys in a modern & sleek design. It even comes with a USB, LED, and bottle opener.
The apocalypse is coming this year. How am I suppose to live a first world life with the world blowing up?
While people are digging through the dirt looking for bugs to eat, you'll be living like a king in your underground bunker with Shelf Reliance's 1 year food supply (for 1 person). It has a shelf life of 25 years and provides a whopping 4,866 servings. Or trade a can of peas for an Apocalyptic manicure.
Messenger bags are in. So is being geeky. But, I don't want to seem like a poser by jumping on the bandwagon.
Show everyone you mean business by getting one of these cartoon-styled bags. Jeez they really look cartoony. Get compliments from all the cool hipsters riding by on their unicycles and maybe get into a conversation about Zelda...or whatever.

My body deserves the organiest of the organic ingredients available. Who is this Morton and why should I trust him?

I washed my pants with my iPhone still in the pocket. Now I have to use an old phone like some unsophisticated barbarian.

I need to shower but I'm drinking beer. And I can't drink beer in the shower, so I'm not going to shower.

It's only 9:00AM at work, the bacon toothpaste taste is gone, the microwave is broken, I'm out of bacon jerky and ate my backup bacon I keep in my pockets. How will I get through the day?
You could lick the bacon grease that's dripped down your leg from your back pocket like a crack fiend, or you can bust out your binoculars you've filled with bacon flavored vodka just for emergencies like this.
I have to wait months for the next season of A Game of Thrones and I'm too lazy to read the books.
Who needs books when you can play a board game instead? Create your own story as surely it'll be better than George R.R. Martin's. Forge alliances or plan backstabbing betrayals as you control a house of Westeros and try to take over as much land as possible.
I was eating chocolate cake while making spaghetti and totally forgot it was boiling and now have water all over the stove.
Next time stick this thing onto the top of your pot, turn the fire on high, go watch a movie and come back to a spill-free stove-top thanks to Kuhn Rikon's Large Spill Stop Lid. It comes in three different colors and we think it'll look pretty cool as a hat too.

Co-worker Steve's done something stupid again, but I've already received a warning from HR for threatening physical harm against him.
If you need a more benign way of showing disapproval, disagreement, or dissatisfaction, then surely these glasses are for you. The next time Steve tells you keeping bacon in your pockets is disgusting, pop on these glasses and tell him he's going to regret say that.
My first world life is nice and comfortable, but sometimes I wish it were more exciting. Maybe I'll get a dog!

I'm surrounded by bullshit all day from co-worker Steve to all the crap on TV.

I messed up my shaving my goatee and now I have a Hitler mustache. Worse is I think it looks pretty good on me.

I'm sick of bad tasting food. Why can't everything taste like bacon?
You really have to try this. These tablets are made from "miracle fruit," native to West Africa. When taken, they modify your taste buds so beer tastes like chocolate and sour things taste sweet. They're perfectly safe. Now, you can start having your own "Flavor Tripping" parties. It doesn't get any more "first world" than that.
First world living makes life easy but sometimes boring. I wish I could live in a fantasy world.
After a discussion with your friends about which fictional world you would live in, you go home and cry yourself to sleep because you know it'll never happen.

I took too long to finish my cereal and now it's all soggy.
This ingenious cereal bowl design separates the cereal from the milk, keeping your Fruit Loops crunchy forever. Just scoop a little cereal, then a little milk, sprinkle a little bacon and into your mouth it goes. The only thing bad about this is no after-cereal milk. The design is also great for things like salsa and chips, soup and crackers.

It's shaped to let the ball of ice (mold included) roll around the glass, chilling your drink faster with slower melting ice.

My nutritionist tells me that a bloody mary is not a suitable replacement meal for dinner.
So that bakon vodka you're using for your bloody mary doesn't really have any protein and the tomato juice doesn't really count as a serving of fruit. To really make it a meal, you'll need these meat straws; as the popular life motto goes: "Get drunk, then eat the straw." Personally, I also enjoy milk and soda with these. Price is for 30.
I was eating saltines with rare Russian caviar while watching the latest torrented episode of Breaking Bad. Now there is an audible crunch whenever I press the letters "E," "R," and "L."
Research shows that our hands are dirtier than something real dirty, so who knows what's growing inside the depths of our keyboards. Logitech's Washable Keyboard is a must have for parents with teenage sons and everyone else.
My friends think I'm uncultured because I don't have artwork hanging in my house.
Slap your friends in the face by getting one of these super cool personalized waveform art pieces. Send them a sound file and they'll take the waveform to create a unique design printed on a high quality canvas. Now your friends will be in awe of the giant "PENIS" on the wall.
The water's so cold in the winter, I don't know when it's warm enough for my fragile hands to touch. And the opposite during the Summer!
Move to Hawaii or check out this Waterfall LED faucet. It changes colors depending on the temperature so you'll know when it's warm/cold enough to put your poor hands under it. Alternatively, check out Color Changing Showerheads.
I have a dream that one day all men will be created equal...to that of Ron F***ing Swanson!
That dream is about to become one step closer to reality with the official Parks and Recreation Ron F***ing Swanson BBQ Sauce. Perfect to go with your Turf 'N' Turf or Ron Swanson Turkey Burger or just slather onto your mustache for a snack on the go.
I went to the club and didn't get someone to come home with me. I'm so lonely, no one likes me and I just want to cuddle.
Well now here's a huge pillow shaped like a freakin' U for you to cuddle and hug and kiss...wait what? Potentially the best thing since the flesh*****(your secret is safe) for forever aloners and I guess it's pretty good for pregnant ladies too.
Sometimes I want to escape my first world life and pretend I can survive in the wilderness if the economy collapses. But really, I wouldn't last a day.
This might save your life when you're out there pretending to be one with nature. This little tool is about the size of a credit card and easily fits in your wallet. It has 11 useful functions like the saw blade for when you're being attacked by a bear.
My skinny jeans pockets are too tight to fit both my iPhone and wallet full of cash.
The obvious solution would be to take out all the cash and put your iPhone in your wallet where the cash was once, right? No? Or you can combine your iPhone and your wallet into one seamless object synonymous with first world life. That sounds better. BookBook's iPhone & Wallet Case combo does just that.
The gap between my seat and console is like a black hole. I keep losing my change and can't fit my hand through to retrieve it.
The Drop Stop is an incredibly simple invention to stop just that; things falling through that gap between the seat and console. It fits snuggly into the gap with a space for the seatbelt buckle and allows seat adjustments without disturbance. (Warning: Link has Autoplay YouTube video)

The shape of my fried egg was smaller than my sandwich. I had to endure few bites that was only bread like some carnival orphan.
Make every bite full of free-range organic farmers market eggy deliciousness with Joie's Sandwich Egg Shaper. It's made of heat resistant silicone so you can just pop it on the pan, crack an egg, and bam, perfectly shaped egg for your sammich.
I made too much spaghetti and now have to look at the wet, flippy floppy, limp, left-over spaghetti I can't eat. Gross!
Never make the wrong amount of spaghetti or noodly doodly base dish with this cool spaghetti measuring tool. It has slots for different portions (adult male, female, child, and HORSE!) so you'll know how much spaghetti a real person can eat. I personally enjoy just the horse's head portion.

I got too drunk because I didn't have a wine glass and used a pitcher instead.
This fun glass is printed with measurements for various alcoholic drinks. Want beer? Just fill it up to one of the marks for "beer" and remind yourself not to get so drunk you make out with your pet hamster.
I forgot to bring my bottled water to the gym and have to drink out of the fountain like a barbarian.
Our first world bodies are delicate. Tap water with dirty little germs and microbes can make us sick (totally untrue). Save money and ditch bottled water and go with the Bobble Water Bottle. Fill it with tap water and the filter eliminates toxins and harmful chemicals as you drink. The filter lasts about 2 months and is replaceable.
Sometimes I daydream about being James Bond and having all his cool gadgets.
Step 1 to becoming a super spy: get WiFi hotspot capable cufflinks with 2GB USB storage so you can check Facebook wherever you are. Step 2: there is no step two because you're now a man with WiFi with storage cufflinks. Now get ready to go kick some ass and get some international model babes.
So apparently green rug and brown walls with movie posters taped up with scotch tape makes people puke as they enter my home.
You've made a huge mistake so next time just go with a prefabricated and furnished home by Ideabox and IKEA. Doesn't everyone think everything in IKEA would look good in their own home anyways? Might as well just have them furnish it.
The power went out and all my gadgets are out of battery. Now I'm going to have to talk to a real human being.
Wait! Not yet! With this portable solar charger, you'll never need to have human interaction as long as the sun rises. Charge any USB powered devices with sunlight and it also includes a nifty LED light. The only thing is you may have to step outside the house...
You know, sometimes I just want to play pool in a pool, but even I know that is stupid.
Yo, we got you here at First World Living. We heard you liked playing pool in a pool so we put a pool table in a pool so you can play pool in the pool son! It's waterproof obviously and pretty silly.
I have no more room in my fridge for bottles and/or they keep rolling around. How am I suppose to be as cool as Mr. Chi City with this travesty?
The Fridge Monkey is a very simple solution to a great problem. The picture is self explanatory as to how it works. Things we think can be stacked on the monkey: breadsticks, churros, freeze-pops, those old school plastic kool-aid bottles.
When I charge too many gadgets at once, the wires get all tangled and look messy.
Brighten up your home or office with a little fake green grass. But hey, it also doubles as a charging station so it doesn't just take up space for nothing! Run your wires through the bottom and lay your iPhones on the soft surface for a neat and refreshing change.
I've got an ungodly craving for some Tagalongs, but the Girl Scouts aren't allowed to sell to my house anymore.
How were you suppose to know it was the Girl Scouts when you answered the door naked? They can't come to you, but now you can go to them with this this Girl Scout Cookie Finder app. An app that finds cookies for you... Tell me this isn't First World Living at its finest.
I knocked my drink over my keyboard...AGAIN! FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!
Who seriously has never knocked over a drink and ruined important documents and expensive keyboards? It's happened to my countless times and now the syrup from that coke makes my 'S' key ssssssssstick. Keep the cup off the desk and safe from spills while creating more desk space with this handy Table Cup Holder Clip.
I spent the whole day stressing about if I've left a candle burning at home.
Instead of calling your neighbor Steve, who secretly goes through your underwear, to go check for you, just get this water candle kit. Fill any vase with water and decorate it however you like. Add a layer of cooking oil, float the wick on top and voila, you have a nice candle that will be put out if tipped over.
The TV remote still uses batteries so I have to go buy some like some technophobe from the 90s.
Why do disposable batteries still exist? It's bad for the environment and super expensive. But, if you're left with no choice, check out these USB rechargeable batteries. Super convenient and easy to use, just pop off the top and it becomes a USB device you can plug into your computer to recharge.
My wife's blamed me for losing the keys to the Land Rover when she knows I took the Hummer to work this morning.
Never lose or mix up your keys again while taking out your aggression by figuratively shoving your keys up your significant other's...nevermind. This unique couple's key holder comes with a key for each gender that you keep in your key ring. The keys then fits into the male or female forms.
My forehead is sore from showing my friends how many cans I can crush with my head.
After showing off your machismo, show off your gadgetchismo by crushing the shit out of cans with the CAAAN RAAAAM. It acts as a nice reservoir for cans and a reminder of how much an alcoholic you are. Stores up to 10 cans before you need to activate the crushinator. Feels good man.
I don't drink tea because it takes too much time to prepare. People think I'm unsophisticated.
The Tipping Tea Cup is a seriously cool item. You stick your loose tea leaves (tea bags also work) into the small compartment, then pour water through it and tip the cup onto its other side and the tea will seep through the filter. Pip pip cheerio, time to enjoy some delicious tea.
I'm being made fun of for using girls' body wash.
Ever have the nightmare where a burglar breaks in while you're in the shower, comes in the bathroom, rips open the curtain, and sees you standing there naked. But then he's one of those sexy burglars and you start making out with him? The soap gun is in case he's not sexy and need to scare him off. Also, I know what I'm sneaking up my ass if I ever go to prison.
There's no more clean cups so I have to drink water with my hands like some Victorian beggar.
Get rid of that nasty cup you use to rinse out your mouth after brushing. It sits in the bathroom all day collecting microscopic doo doo particles. But, have a little more respect for yourself and don't take water from your hand like some uneducated monster. Tapi fits onto any tap. Squeeze the bottom and it becomes a fountain.
The last few gulps of my coffee are always stronger and sweeter than the rest of the coffee.
We've gone and come back from the moon, built the Large Hadron Collider, gave Glenn Beck his own show, we shouldn't have to stir our own drinks like some sort of criminal. This self-stirring mug makes sure your beverage is always mixed thoroughly with a touch of a button. It comes with a 4000RMP motor and splash-proof lid!
The ice cubes in my whiskey melted too quickly and now I have to drink watered down whiskey...bleh!
If you enjoy a little somethin' somethin' after a long day, check this out. They chill your favorite drink and bring out its flavor without watering it down. Pop in a few and after 5 minutes, enjoy your perfectly chilled whiskey. And after a few glasses, deal with family problems!
I'm laying down on the couch and can't reach the shrimp cocktail so I have to sit up.
With the Sofa Hanger and this Magnussen Wood Lift Top Table, you'll probably never have to move from the couch again. The top lifts up and comes to you instead of you having to bend across to reach something. Almost like having a robot servant table!
My maid refuses the pick up the peanut shells I throw on the floor because the trash can is too far away.
Instead of getting a new maid, try using this double dish by kitchen innovator, Joseph Joseph. The top dish is removable and when sitting on top of the bottom dish, provides three openings that hides shells or pits. Or you can use both as separate bowls and just eat more peanuts.
I loved Dr. Seuss as a kid and want to let everyone know I'm awesome.
The first thing I thought of when someone said "Dr. Seuss art" is taxidermy. Consequently, part art and part taxidermy equals 100% awesome, and that's what you would be if you owned one of these. It costs an arm and a leg, but boy would you have a nice discussion piece if you had this hanging up over your mantle.
from Art of Dr. Seuss
I gag whenever I eat a sandwich. The crust is literally the most disgusting thing in the world.
I feel your pain and so do many other people. Praise the lord for Wonder's Sandwich Sealer and Decruster for it banishes the evil crust from this world and protects the sandwich in an impenetrable seal. Begone crusts! You aren't allowed here!
My fingers get stiff and ache after 8 hours of pwning 8 year olds in BF3.
Strap on this baby between intense gaming sessions to give your hands and fingers a much needed stretch. The Xtensor also makes your reaction time faster while relieving cramps. And its an effective treatment for tennis elbow and arthritis!
It's like a war-zone when I have to take a dump on protein shake day. I wipe and wipe but it just doesn't stop.
It's the 21st century. There's no reason our hands have to be that close to that amount of ****. Astor's non-electric water spraying attachable bidet is a must have. A refreshing spray leaves you using less toilet paper and a kissable...never mind. Or for Japanese authenticity.
My laziness overpowers my craving for bacon.
We've all had those midnight bacon cravings but were too lazy to satiate it. Eating bacon raw just doesn't have the same gusto. Microwaving bacon at the office leaves them too oily for when you stuff them in your pocket for later. Do you also have all these problems? The lifesaving Microwave Bacon Cooker cooks 10 strips at a time and lets the fat drip down as it cooks.
Apple hasn't released a new product yet this year so I can't show how technologically savvy I am.
It's time to get your consumerism on cause the "New" iPad is coming. No longer continuing with the tradition numbering scheme, you can immediately see the differences with the "New" iPad. It's white or black with a screen and a button...but the biggest improvement is it comes with 20% less suicides!
My 1,000 thread count Egyptian bald eagle feather down pillow is so soft my entire head sinks in and gets too hot.
Before you throw out the pillow that put America's national bird back on the endangered species list, try adding a Chillow to it. It fits any regular sized pillows and keeps your pillow cool throughout the night. You can even stick it in the fridge for added cooling intensity.
While I can use the Heated Mattress Pad during the Winter, sleeping ends up uncomfortably hot and sticky during Summer.
This super quiet fan blows cool air between the top and bottom sheets, instantly cooling your whiny face down...and your body too. It comes with a small remote that adjusts the fan's speed.
My mom blames the electricity bill increase on my second iPad and PS Vita.
Did you know that leaving electronic devices plugged in, but not in use, still draws power? Belkin's Conserve Socket solves this problem by allowing you to set a timer that automatically shuts off the power to save energy. It's also great for things like curling irons and heaters so you'll never have to worry about leaving them on.
So what if I like to keep all my mason jars? One day you're gonna be like, "Shit I need a mason jar, but I threw them all out. My friend Steve has tons, I'll call him." So stop calling me weird.
You've turned half your jars to portable travel mugs, now turn the other half into useful soap dispensers. Save money and put all those jars to good use. Or even use them as candles. Take that you jar haters!
I uh spilled coffee on my pants and have to walk around all day with a stain.
Let's not lie. You crapped your pants and half the day has gone by with people giving you dirty looks. Your underwear has crusted over and the grease from the bacon in your pockets has been dripping down your leg and into your shoe the entire day. It's time to clean up for god's sake. Good thing you have Emergency Underpants.
I forgot to bring my adapter so I can't charge my iPad.
Forget about any Apple adapter and forget about adapters that charge through USB. Just have a bunch of these Belkin 6 Outlet Surge Protector with USBs around the home and office and never have to look for those silly adapters again. It comes with 6 outlets and 2 convenient USB ports at the top.
They say fresh juice is healthier than store-bought, but I'm too lazy to do it.
Straight from the land of innovation, Gurefuru Chuchu acts as a super simple to use juicer while being super cute at the same time. Just cut a hole, stick Gurefuru Chuchu in, turn the handle around a bit, and bam - fresh juice. If you're still not convinced you need this, then I dare you to not watch this video.
Turning on the light when I go to the bathroom in the middle of the night hurts my eyes. It's so annoying.
Looks like its a big enough problem to warrant a solution. BrightFeet lighted slippers are slippers that have a LED light built into the front of them. It's weight and light sensored so it only lights up when you need them to. Only light up what you need to see and save your eyes some trouble!
I fell asleep in Chem class. Now my neck hurts.
Show your professor his class is boring by strapping on the Arm Pillo. Stick it to the airline and show them that they can't keep you awake with their tortuous seats by strapping on the Arm Pillo and punching the CEO in the face. Let your friend know her car conversations are boring by strapping on the Arm Pillo to the seat belt and falling asleep. Am I missing anything?
Shouting obscenities at co-worker Steve for fun turned out to be inappropriate at work.
Unfortunately, they've caught onto your 'I have Tourrettes' excuse you'd always use for your pent up aggression. You now carry this shouting vase everywhere and shout your string of obscenities into it instead. The shouting vase absorbs your screams and emits a softer verion through the whole at the base.
The neighbor's wife is hot, but I don't want to look like a perv and get caught staring at her sunbathing in her backyard.
Man's best friend is here to save the day again! While the cute little Dog Peek is designed to let your dog check out what's going on on the other side of the fence, we can think of a few other uses...just kidding. *First world living does not condone immoral uses of this product*
I forgot to pack my $500 Armani sweatpants and left them in the hotel room.
You've lost over $10,000 worth of items by forgetting them in hotels and you're starting to think maybe the affair isn't worth it anymore. We're here to stop you from thinking such silly thoughts. Never unpack again with this luggage. Hang it up and it unfolds with all your stuff neatly inside. Also makes for a fast getaway if need be.
I forgot to pay my satellite TV bill and now I'm stuck with only 30 channels.
Never forget another payment to the companies that own our lives while classing it up at the same time with this handmade Wine Cork Bulletin Board. Pin up important documents, letters, bills, lists, keys, etc, while showing family and friends you know a lot about wine (you don't).
I haven't changed the batteries in the smoke detector for years, but I'm too lazy to check it.
I bet you'd pay more attention if your smoke detector was now a bird. Maybe you'd feed it and pet it. Maybe you'll even change its batteries every once in awhile. Hey, they're serious business and may save your life one day. This one is stylish and effective, with a 1.5 year battery life and 85db alarm signal.
I have a romantic date tonight, but I don't have a fireplace to sip wine in front of like in the movies.
First world living means combining one of the most primitive technologies with the most modern. The Ponton Fireplace lets your bring one of nature's most powerful elements wherever you want. It burns completely safe bio-alcohol fuel that lasts 1.5-2.5 hours. For a more affordable but equally cool one, check out this one.
I watched some videos on my laptop and ...uh... accidentally made a mess on my keyboard.
Wherever you decide to make your mess, from doorknobs and walls to hotel remote controls, Cyber Clean's cleaning compound (say that 10 times fast) will clean that sucker up lickety split. The patented high-tech cleaning compound is effective at removing 99.99% of harmful particles. Which leaves the question WTF is in that 0.01%?
I finished a box of donuts and want more, but I'm too embarrassed to show my face at Krispy Kreme twice in the same day.
Shame and embarrassment keeps us from doing some things we want to do. Sometimes it's for the better, but in this case it means no second box of donuts for you. Sad Face :(. Fortunately, money solves everything and you can just make donuts at home with the Sunbeam Donut Maker!
My anxiety medication doesn't work for my dog.
Does your dog poo on the floor and then eat it whenever something scares him/her? No? Then how about shake and shiver uncontrollably and then hide in the bushes? Yeah? Then you need the Thundershirt Dog Anxiety Treatment Wrap. Anxiety sucks, for humans and dogs. This shirt helps relieve fear, anxiety, and stress with a high success rate.
Mob Wives has come on. I can't find the remote and I'm too lazy to get up to change the channel. I've sat through 6 episodes so far...
Most of the time we don't know where the remote is, but when was the last time you lost a big brown pillow? The obvious next step in this evolutionary process is to combine the two. This pillow remote control is the result of decades of pillow-remote mating and ain't it beautiful sight.
It takes me an extra 10 minutes to fall asleep at night because I'm worrying if my dad has passed down his erectile dysfunction to me.
23andMe won't exactly answer that for you but they might give you a better idea. What they do is genetic testing for health and diseases. You send them a sample of your DNA using their kit and in 6-8 weeks, receive personal genetic information about your DNA. Pretty cool!
For the love of god why is there not bacon jerky?
The universe's greatest give to humankind is now in portable, forever lasting jerky form! Say goodbye to greezy pant pockets and stock your portable stash with bacon jerky instead. Praise the lord, all glory to allah, thank you Carl Sagan, Buddha, Flying Spaghetti Monster! I can die a happy man.

Sometimes, my head hurts from thinking about money all day. Maybe it'd hurt less if while thinking about money, I got a head massage.
This crazy contraption lets you massage your own head and boy does it feel good. It has 92 flexible bristles that massage your scalp as you use the handles on the sides to run it back and forth. Feels good man. For a more tame version, check out this simple one.
I share a bathroom with roomates and have no room to keep my prescription shampoo and body wash in the tub.
I too had an argument with roomates about proper bath product tub space division. I lost and now live with my parents. Solve the little problems in life with this Mesh Pockets Shower Curtain. This along with the Moen curved shower rod, you could practically live in the bathroom!
I watch Parks and Rec and wish I was a manly man like Ron Swanson. Maybe if I could make homemade jerky...
Oh this jerky? No, I didn't buy it. I made it myself. With a gun. Yeah that's right. I make my own jerky with a gun. The Weston Jerky Gun makes making jerky easy so you can impress your friends. Just watch this video and start making your own jerky. JERKY!
I cringe whenever the nasty, wet, and cold shower curtain touches me and sticks to my skin. Gag!

I'm craving some bacon but I'm too lazy to get off my ass to make some.
Whoa whoa whoa, stop right there. Don't waste energy. Have this bacon frosting! Just tilt your head back and squeeze it all into your mouth, big boy. Delicious isn't it? Use it as body soap and lotion as well and smell of bacon all day. Getting hungry? Give your skin a lick to tide you over 'till you can get back to your BACON FROSTING.

There's nothing more first world than dressing up your pets! For another cool one, check out this Big Bad Wolf costume.
The coffee was too hot and I burned my tongue. Now I can't eat or drink anything warm without excruciating pain.
We've all had this happen before. Sipping scalding hot lava coffee and having the fires of hell blast down on your tongue and roof of your mouth. It's surprising that a temperature checking apparatus is not built in with every mug, we're living in the first world for god's sake!
I couldn't find my tumeric spice and now my homemade curry tastes like crap.
Wars were fought and continents were discovered in the name of spices. Now, you can have them right at your fingertips. Never lose those tiny spice bottles again with this magnetic spice rack. It looks cool while saving you counter space.
No matter how many pairs of wool socks I wear, my feet always still cold.
Cold feet suck. It sucks even more when the rest of your body is nice and toasty, but your feet is a frigid block of...feet. These heated slippers come with an insert you pop into the microwave, then into the slippers. It then slowly transfers the heat to your feet while releasing a nice blended scent (not of your feet). How luxurious is that!?
I've been working out and want to tell all my friends, but I don't want to brag.
Let Fitbit do all the bragging for you. "Yeah I ran 5 miles today. This thing I have tracks and uploads all my activity online so people can see. It's so embarrassing! I don't want everyone to know!" Fitbit Wireless Activity & Sleep Tracker will track steps, distance, and stairs with its 3d accelerometer. It also tracks how well you sleep!
I cut my finger on the hard, sharp base trying to get out the last drop of toothpaste.
The rich don't stay rich by wasting. This includes toothpaste and other things that come in tubes, like bacon frosting. Squeezeit is a simple little thing that keeps your tubes nice and neat while squeezing out every last drop. We suppose you'll get your money's worth after only 4 or so years!
I left the syrup on the pancakes for too long and now they're all soggy.
There are very few things in the world more disgusting than soggy pancakes. The stuff they eat on Fear Factor, for one. The pancake plate solves this first world problem. It's elevated on one side so the syrup drips into a reservoir keeping your pancake nice and dry. May we suggest Bacon Syrup to go with that?

I ate a huge dinner and now I'm too sleepy to walk my dog.
See, what you do is get one of these Fit Fur Life Treadmills, put it in front of your 90inch LCD TV, turn on the nature channel, put your dog on the treadmill, and crank it up to a nice jogging pace. Your pet won't know the difference and will have the time of its life while you lay down and become one with the sofa.

I love strawberries but it always takes so long to remove the leaves and hull.
Like the Corn Stripper, OXO brings another inventive time saving device into the kitchen. The Strawberry Huller removes all the unwanted parts in one fell swoop. No more messing with dangerous knives and eating around the stem!
I lost my bottle opener and can't open my bottle and my hand hurts if I do it by hand.
Since you now have the Fridge Monkey, you need something open all those pretty bottles, right? Forget clunky bottle openers that get lost in the drawer void. This magnet just upgraded your fridge with the "Open Bottle" ability. Fridge, I choose you!
I have Heated Slippers and a Heated Mattress Pad, but the room itself is still too frigid.
From the hater of all things with blades, techno wizard inventor billionaire, Sir James Dyson, is this fan-less heater. It heats the room faster than its competitors and projects heat further out. Its also safe with no visible heating elements. Use it without the heat as a blade-less fan too!
Tiny cuts I get from shaving is literally the worst pain I've felt ever in my life!
You may have never heard of this before but it may potentially save you from death from blood loss. Styptic Pencils stops bleeding from the seemingly unstoppable waterfall of blood caused by nicks and cuts from shaving. As it's applied, it moisturizes and prevents all the bad stuff from penetrating.
I wanted a dog so my mom bought me one. Now she expects me to take care of him. What is she? Crazy? I'm busy doing raids, I don't have time for that!
Don't make me slap you, but for the sake of the dog, this automatically refilling water bowl will make sure your pet will never run out of water. Just attach your garden hose to the bowl and it will refill it with water when it gets low.
I have to carry my lunchbox separately because I fill my workbag with stolen office items everyday.
You say, "Why don't you just put that stapler INSIDE the lunch box and the lunch box inside your bag?" And we say, "Why don't you shutup? The amount of space saved is equal to 593% in gross product dollars of stolen revenue items." The Pack-Away Lunchbox flattens for easier storage giving you more space for stolen goods.
I bought too much groceries and have to make another trip back to the car.
The consecutive trips back to the car has been man's nemesis since the dawn of humankind. Many men have fallen trying to carry all the bags at once. It's time to rise up against this great evil and buy the Bag Mate Handle Carrier. If you're strong enough, it holds up to 70lbs and you will never make a second trip to the car again.
I forgot which level I parked on and spent 30 minutes walking around looking for my car.
Was it level 3? Or 4? I think it was the one with the pink signs. Never have to deal with forgotten parking spots or backtracking again with this super easy to use Bushnell GPS BackTrack Personal Locator. It only has 2 buttons, one for marking a location, and the other to select and display the direction and distance back.
I've decrusted my sandwich nicely with the decruster, but freakin' Steve keeps stealing my sandwich at work because it looks so delicious.
Stealing another person's lunch at work should be a crime punishable by death. Especially if it's a beautifully decrusted sandwich. While Obama is working on getting that law passed, stop potential lunch thefts by applying a little sandwich bag trickery.
I wish I could do all the stuff I need to do in the morning in the hot, steaming, and relaxing shower.
Shave, brush your teeth and pee (yes, we all know you do that), look at your pretty face, all in the shower with this fogless shower mirror. No it's not witchcraft, its technology baby and that's what we're all about. It's guaranteed to be fogless for life and comes with a bunch of extras.
It's Winter and I'm miserable the first few minutes I get into bed 'cause the sheets and blankets are so cold.
Turn on this bad boy before hopping in bed and be miserable no more. This heated mattress pad fits into any standard mattress and generates heat underneath your body. Comfy! There's also 10 hours shut-off mechanism so you don't burn your mansion down. Get one for you pet, too!
I keep dripping my expensive homemade shark fin soup on the stovetop and it's so hard to clean between the grills and stuff.
First, you shouldn't be having shark fin soup you heartless bastard. But, for all other stove-related activities, the Trudeau Utensil Pot Clip prevents drips, misplacement, saves space, and much more. Heat-resistant up to 600F and dishwasher safe! BOO shark fin soup, GO pot clip!
I have to take my gloves off every time I want to text my husband to meet me at the top of the ski lift. It's such a hassle.

Mantis is a pretty sweet looking clip-on LED light that runs on batteries (30 hours). It clips on wherever to wherever you need it to and it also transforms into a light stand for when you need it by itself.
My shower temperature dials are so sensitive, it takes 5 minutes to get it just right.
Studies have shown that it takes a rocket scientist to calibrate dial temperatures correctly on the first try. That's why the government invested billions into the Temji.

My steamer basket doesn't fit in my new pot :(
We aren't living in the stone-age anymore my friend. It's time to modernize and get a steamer basket that fits in any sized pot. The Lotus Steamer Basket is a seriously cool design that saves storage space and has adjustable sides to fit most pans. There's also a finger guard that protects your fingers from scalding when lifting it out of the pot.

I'm too lazy to untie my shoes so I just smash my feet in like a savage.
Why we don't have automatically tying shoelaces is beyond me. But, in the meantime just use a shoe horn. Stick this thing in the back of your shoe and easily slide your feet in. No more damaged backsides or tying shoelaces. For those too lazy to even bend over: a super long shoe horn.

I have to wait 5 minutes for water to boil for my "instant" ramen.
It kind of defeats the purpose of instant ramen if you have to boil or microwave water, right? You must have not read the directions on the ramen pack. The part that says you need to have the Zojirushi Water Boiler for instant hot water in order to have instant ramen. Duh! It keeps piping hot (up to 208F) water right at your fingertips.
