Misery Loves Comedy.

There’s been a popular gif floating around this week dubbed the brutal montage of unsatisfying moments. True to its name, watching animated clips of such torturous scenes as goods getting stuck in vending machines and firecrackers that don’t pop is pure agony.

Conversely, a popular internet posting you’ll soon see going around this week (read: the one you’re currently reading) is a joyful list of super-satisfying ways to spend the coming days. Follow its advice, and your week will be pure ecstasy.
