It’s a darn good time to be alive, eh? You can buy just about anything your heart desires from a store near you (T&C apply*). Never have there been more options for snacks, beverages, gadgets or even toiletries. Yup. No doubt, we always come back from the supermarket feeling more complete and better-equipped to take on the week ahead. But imagine what it’d be like if the things we really, REALLY wanted were also available in packs of 500 grams or a kilo.
1. Love Potion
I’m yet to meet a person who hasn’t felt the sting of unrequited love. You may argue that dating apps help ease the pain, but face it, the ones you genuinely see a future with just don’t swipe right on you. And even if they do, taking things to the next level is always a taller order than we first expect. Am I wrong?
2. Common Sense
Ironically, common sense is something that isn’t all that common, after all. Every day we go through dozens of insufferable people that could totally go for a big cup of common sense fortified with a spoonful of basic logic. Yeah, if common sense was a common commodity, it’d surely beat photo frames to become the new go-to gift option for birthdays, anniversaries and retirements.
Granted, talent is pointless unless it’s acquired through days upon months of hard work and focus. But, what’s the harm in imagining a supermarket section dedicated to limited-duration talent-packs? ‘Be a guitar lord for one night’, ‘Juggle 5 balls for an hour’, ‘Rock 8 ball pool for one session.’ Sounds cool, dunnit?
The idea of living fast is well endorsed and widely accepted. And you know the core concept of living in that lane, right? ‘Instant gratification.’ Unfortunately, if we live by that philosophy, we’ll likely never accomplish the things that really matter – dreams, success, and a legacy to remember us by. These things can only be accomplished with the help of one key factor, among others – the antithesis of YOLO; Patience.
There are simply way too many people and factors trying to take away our freedom from us in some way or another. Without making this point too political, let’s just say, that even in a ‘free world’, if freedom was available by the gram, it’ll probably cost more than gold. We’d still happily buy it, though.
More or less, the other side of the same coin as patience. If you’re shooting for the moon, one’s pretty incomplete without the other.
If only there was an entire aisle dedicated to health, right? Products like “Nerve damage repair seeds” “Cardiac cola”, “Insta bone-repair mix” and so on. Yeah, that would totally allow us to eat, drink, smoke and pop anything, and as much of it, as we wanted without a worry. The first thing I’d do is eat a bucket full of bacon.
8. True Friends
Pretty self-explanatory, this one (:
While we’re at least 10,000 years away from an age when we can expect these things to be available in the form of everyday commodities, there’s one thing we can (finally) buy as easily as milk or biscuits – a home. Yup! Magicbricks has made the process of buying a house that simple. Not only can you choose from a host of available properties in a given location but you can also get additional info about the property and locale with the press of a few buttons. Moreover, you can move in right away without waiting out the dreaded possession period.
