25 Everyday Things That Are Better When They Are Broken

Posted by , Updated on February 16, 2017

Things are better when they’re not broken. Right? Like, when they’re new? Or at least when they’re fixed? That’s what most people would say, in all likelihood yourself included. To be honest, it probably holds true for the majority of things, but can we think of at least a few things that are better when they’re broken? These don’t have to be concrete objects. They can be concepts, ideas, or some sort of abstract notion. We’re sure you can think of a few if you try hard enough. Well, we’re just going to go ahead and help you out. The following list includes a bunch of things that are better when you break them (like eggs). Some, in fact, are downright bad before you break them (like awkward silences). And to tell you the truth, a few of them don’t even exist unless you “break” them (like news stories). So, regardless of what it is prior to the breakage, one thing is certain…it’s better when it’s broken, no matter what “it” is. So, without giving away too much of our list, get ready for us to break it down because these are 25 Everyday Things That Are Better When They Are Broken!
