Remember what life was like without the internet?
But from what I’ve heard, it involved shelves of dusty encyclopedias, walking two kilometres in the mud to the neighbouring farm, and actually using – wait for it – your brain to solve your problems.
These days, who has the time to call up Rachel’s cousin’s half sister’s boyfriend who works in IT when your laptop is having a moment?
Or dare I say it, pick up a recipe book to plan your weekly meal prep?
Although one could argue technology is more often than not the cause for a number of our problems, it makes sense for us to use it to our advantage when we can.
Therefore behold: here are 10 of the hundreds of useful websites that can help you maintain the fragile pretence that is your reputation as a functioning adult.
10 Minute Mail
10 minute mail is the online shopping hack you knew you needed, but didn’t know could exist. This site allows you to create a new email address that will expire in 10 minutes, meaning you can keep redeeming that ‘first time customer’ discount at The Iconic and beyond.
Have I Been Pwned
Put simply, Have I Been Pwned can tell you in less than 10 seconds if your
nudes family photos, email addresses, websites or social media accounts have been hacked.
What The F*ck Should I Make For Dinner
It’s the question we ask ourselves every. damn. night. Basically, this website gives it to you straight, spitting out a random recipe in a way that makes dinner time NSFW. And if you don’t like what it gives you? Just ask for another one!
My Fridge Food
Along similar lines as above, but for those who are a little more helpless in the kitchen. Perfect for when opening the fridge is about as inspiring as a wet sock, My Fridge Food shows you how to work with the random food items you’ve got. Unfortunately the site has not yet managed to build an update where these meals magically appear in front of you.
