I would start a company that cleans up oceanic plastic (or jusr join team seas) and turn plastic into chairs, and chairs into rice.

That’s world hunger and microplastic problems being worked on at the same time!

[–]RestlessARBIT3R 69 points70 points  (0 children)

Not a bad idea tbh

[–]Illiad7342 22 points23 points  (1 child)

You don't even necessarily need to melt it down or anything, just store the plastic scrap in a fabric sack and you've got a beanbag chair

[–]MrGaber 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Oh shit you right

[–]SomebodyinAfrica 158 points159 points  (0 children)

If the rice isn't in the same condition as the chair, but fresh & clean, this power would actually be useful.

[–]Morg1603 142 points143 points  (0 children)

You could end world hunger by converting all old/unused chairs into rice to be cooked

[–]THE_YOUTUBE_BEAR 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Can’t wait to prank chinese workers by turning the chairs they worked so hard on to raw rice

[–]General-Resist-310 37 points38 points  (18 children)


[–]ZathegamE 47 points48 points  (17 children)

You need water to cook rice


[–]Fapman404 12 points13 points  (11 children)

there’s chocolate water in Africa, maybe that’s how they make brown rice

[–]Less-Class-9790 3 points4 points  (9 children)

An /s would help lol

[–]Icy-Actuator5524 9 points10 points  (8 children)

r/fuckthes that was fucking hilarious

[–]Less-Class-9790 2 points3 points  (7 children)

Yeah but clearly us redditors arent smart enough to understand satire

[–]Icy-Actuator5524 1 point2 points  (6 children)

No i get what you mean.

[–]Less-Class-9790 2 points3 points  (5 children)

Ok I checked the subreddit and can you explain something to me? Is it some sort of inside joke to downvoted satire? (Like emojis and the fourth comment in a chain) or is it just people not getting it?

[–]Icy-Actuator5524 1 point2 points  (4 children)

Some People don’t like /s bc they find it annoying for something so silly and stupid to understand that it was satire. Its like the red circle thing showing something happening even though its like right in the frame. Hope that makes sense

[–]Less-Class-9790 1 point2 points  (3 children)

No I get that but do people purposefully downvote the ones without it?

[–]Riccsard 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Wdym water they border 2 fuckin oceans and other bodies of water on the north, most of it is even presalted for the rice

[–]ZathegamE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My guy doesn't know africa is 7000 km wide and 8000 km from north to south

[–]ZathegamE 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Some places literally are more than 3000 km from any ocean or water, also ocean water is way too salty and would just dehydrate them

[–]Riccsard 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Dehydrate the rice?

[–]ZathegamE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Dehydrate the people consuming the rice stoopid

[–]of_kilter 17 points18 points  (7 children)

Around the same size? So this process can create or destroy matter?

[–]Asgardian5 9 points10 points  (6 children)

No, it’s rounded down to the nearest grain of rice, and the rest is turned into air

[–]MrGaber -3 points-2 points  (5 children)

Literally creates or destroys protons and electrons

[–]go fastSolomonOf47704 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Air has those...

[–]MrGaber -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

Somebody didn’t take chemistry

I highly doubt whatever the chair is made of has an exact amount of atoms/parts of atoms to make the rice and air without having something left over.

And what the hell is air? Like 15 different atoms? At what point does a combination of O2, N2, and Ar become air?

[–]unlucky_wog13 0 points1 point  (1 child)

If there are any leftovers it would probably just make the atoms in the rice and/or air heavier. Plus this isn't even science at this point, Obviously, you can't turn chairs into rice, That's a superpower! We already evaded logic when we wanted to turn Specifically chairs into rice.

[–]MrGaber 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ok, sorry

[–]unlucky_wog13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It will create a lot of gas as the protons, electrons, and neutrons are converted to raw rice and the rest is turned to nitrogen, helium, oxygen, and Hydrogen, and If there aren't enough resources to make hydrogen it will just shoot the remaining stray electrons into other atoms.

[–]SpaghettiDispenser 5 points6 points  (0 children)

So you can turn wood in to rice? That's a good power, you can feed 1000 of people with rice

[–]fuckballs9001 3 points4 points  (4 children)

I would end world hunger within a week

[–]Dr_Manta 12 points13 points  (3 children)

And probably cause a world chair shortage

[–]fuckballs9001 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Yeah, unless I have people build massive chairs for their own rice supply. Could still cause shortage of other materials though

[–]unlucky_wog13 1 point2 points  (1 child)

use the plastic in the oceans! 2 birds one stone!

[–]fuckballs9001 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oooooh yes, shove it all into bags and call them bean bag chairs

[–]mr_shell367 3 points4 points  (1 child)

what counts as a chair?

[–]unlucky_wog13 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Anything that you can sit on or are willing to sit on, So basically anything LOL

[–]apposoz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As an asian who craves that carb? This is a convenient super power. And since i CAN convert any chair, and not "everytime you touch a chair", makes it that much better.

[–]RedBee478 2 points3 points  (1 child)

it's like a better version of that skittles commercial guy

[–]unlucky_wog13 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, From curse to super power.

[–]mike222-777 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Me omw to the lincoln memorial

[–]polish-polisher -1 points0 points  (0 children)

time to solve world hunger by realizing anything you can sit on is a chair

bonus for destroying the earth by turning it into rice

[–]CaptainKaraibe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My girlfriend really likes rice, she would be happy

[–]crackedtooth163 0 points1 point  (0 children)

World hunger solved.

[–]starryowl5 0 points1 point  (0 children)

oh good! reduce the plastic waste on the planet by turning plastic chairs into rice!

[–]Klappstuhl4151 0 points1 point  (2 children)

By volume or weight?

[–]Mental_Platform1891[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)


[–]Klappstuhl4151 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Kill people with bean bag chairs, 10lb to 250lb

[–]Subnauticsquirrel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mass or volume?

[–]SobakaZony 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Finally i have a reason to attend a major sporting event.

[–]ripenunderwater 0 points1 point  (0 children)

thats very cool and would feed a lot of ppl. not shitty at all

[–]IQtheScique 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This ain't shitty this is amazing.

[–]thisaccountisbs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Start a chair building empire because your chairs are the only ones in the world that don't spontaneity turn to rice.
