Well, many people out there proving it right. They are showing life is no hard if you are ready to handle it. And, must say, only these people are responsible for development. Yes, if there were no such people in the world, then we might still be cooking food on fire in the forest. But some people didn't stop there and started finding easy solutions. And, in this way we are here in the developed & easy world.

However, instead of all such resources, some people go way too far looking for easier solutions. That is why there are several photos of people that get viral heating up a pizza on iron among other pictures of people finding life hacks.
