Are you looking for terrible and completely useless life tips? Then you've come to the right place! Bored Panda has compiled a list of the crappiest advice ever.

Some of them come from a sub-Reddit called /r/ShittyLifeProTips, and while they won't actually help you to achieve much, they are at least useful when it comes to making us laugh. From using ketchup as a bookmark, to saving yourself precious time by adding toothpaste to meals, these "pro" life tips are sure to put a smile on your face while completely failing to help you in any practical way. Don't forget to vote for your favorite!

P.S.: These tips are a joke and may be dangerous, don't try them yourself!

Where did you hear that? Because it's outright false. Pressurized tennis balls are made such merely by gluing the halves together in a machine that increases the air pressure just before the halves are glued. No strange sulfur–floride compounds.
