For whatever reason, humans are oddly attracted to seeing things that fit together perfectly. It drives our brains crazy when we see unsymmetrical cuts or two things that obviously don't fit together just right. There's just something really satisfying about a perfectly organized drawer or a shelf packed to the brim with boxes (think Tetris or even KonMari!). That's why we gathered some of the most satisfying and coincidental photos of random items from around the internet that look like they were made for each other, and instantaneously spark joy.
Random Items That Satisfyingly Fit Together PerfectlyPublished 4 months ago
Whoever owned this car was probably having a pretty bad day when this photo was taken. However, at least the rest of the world is able to get some joy after looking at the results. Somehow the driver of this car was able to perfectly wreck or run into this small ditch in a way that left the car completely on its side. It looks like it's held up by nothing more than its own weight pushing up against the walls of the ditch.
It's actually pretty extraordinary, and it even leaves open the possibility that the car was possibly salvaged or gotten out of the ditch without taking too much damage from the water.
Someone posted this photo online after they asked their 5-year-old child to restock the toilet paper drawer in their bathroom. And the kid did an excellent job. Look how neatly organized it is! The parent wrote that they needed to take some out but that they didn't want to mess up the perfect fit, and we can understand where they were coming from. It would be a shame to mess this kid's hard work up.
If we had to take even one roll out, then we'd probably feel bad until we were able to go to the store and buy more to restock the drawer.
When you go out shopping for a new sofa, or really any new piece of furniture, it's usually a good idea to take measurements of your space beforehand. That way, you're not going in blind and end up buying a couch or dresser that's too large or too small. That's not what this person did, but everything seems to have worked out anyway. This is a photo of a new sectional they bought and brought home.
It just happened to fit their space perfectly. However, the odds of this happening are slim to none, and they ended up lucking out pretty hard with this one.
Okay, so an omelet isn't exactly the hardest dish in the world to make. But you know what is hard? Making an omelet that fits your dish perfectly. This person posted a photo of their prized dish online after realizing it fit on the inside circumference of their dish without hanging over. It looks so good that it's almost a shame it has to be eaten in the first place.
Of course, we do hope that whoever made it did end up eating it, as just leaving an omelet on the table for display purposes is kind of gross and probably not very sanitary.
If you've ever seen a photo of a family member when they were young, and it was taken in the 70s or 80s, then this is likely the haircut they were rocking. And we think we may have finally figured out why. It pairs together perfectly with oval picture frames. Just take a look at this photo. There's no distracting background or anything to take your eyes away from the person in the photo.
There's just one very outdated haircut and a perfectly chosen picture frame that encapsulates all of it. It looks so much better than using a boring square frame with a background.
The little shelf (if it can even be called that) on most refrigerators' freezer doors is probably our least favorite compartment. It just doesn't ever seem to be able to fit anything. Most freezer items are either too small or too large to be put there. It's almost as if manufacturers had something very specific in mind when they designed their door shelves. And we think this is what they had in mind.
Someone posted this photo showing their freezer door packed with mint ice cream sandwiches. There are twelve, to be exact, which is the amount that you usually get out of one package.
Trying to pack all of your belongings into a moving truck can sometimes be difficult, mostly because you have to account for heavier items, such as furniture and large appliances. But that didn't seem to stop these movers from packing and stacking these two couches together perfectly. Seriously, if fitting things together were a sport, then these guys would be world champions. They're stacked together so well that it actually looks like it's going to be a pain to get out.
There doesn't even appear to be enough room to stick a hand between the cushions. But that's a small price to pay in order to bless the world with a photo this perfect, we suppose.
People have been making monuments that align with the sun and the stars for as long as we've been able to make monuments. However, we're pretty sure whoever made this small cement pillar probably wasn't trying to make it so that its shadow aligns perfectly with the bricks below. Still, that's what we have. The pillar's shadow is cast so that it lines up perfectly with the pattern on the ground.
We're not producers, but if one of those T.V. shows investigating connections between things like the pyramids and aliens needs some new topics, they should go and check out this random cement pillar.
Most of the time, satisfying fits do nothing more than make your day a little better. But sometimes, they can cause a bit of trouble. Someone posted this photo online, and it shows their wedding ring inside one of the holes of a cigar cutter. Whoever this was had lost their wedding ring a couple of weeks prior and just so happened to stumble upon it one day after looking down.
Odds are they were cutting a cigar, and the hole caught their ring without them even knowing it. We wouldn't be surprised if there were also a couple of glasses of alcohol involved.
Efficiency is the name of the game with this photo. Could these guys have stacked the tires on their sides? Sure. However, they would've lost a little bit of space in doing so. Also, the tires just look so much more satisfying when they're stacked to create a pattern like this. We're sure the extra space doesn't hurt much either, especially if you're getting paid by the load and not by the mile.
We'd actually be interested to know how many more tires they were able to fit in there as opposed to if they were just to stack them on their sides.
Canada Post delivered this package to someone who lives in what looks to be an apartment building. The package fits perfectly in their mailbox, which is great, right? Well, whoever posted it was complaining about not being able to get the package out, which honestly is a small price to pay for this photo. We're sure the mailman was delighted when he figured out that the package fit this snug inside the mailbox.
He'd probably already delivered dozens of packages that day that had to be left outside, but this one was definitely a winner. Or, at least, we're sure it brightened their day a bit.
We're not saying that this is where the architect for this building got their inspiration, but you have to admit that the similarities in the wafer and the building are pretty striking. So much so that it's actually kind of hard to tell where one ends, and the other begins the first time you look at it. We're also pretty sure the look on this guy's face after looking up from eating and noticing the similarities was priceless.
Just imagine yourself walking down the beach minding your own business and eating your wafers, and then suddenly looking up and having an realization of this magnitude.
One of the great things about working on the water is the constant views you're treated to. Nearly every day, you're treated to a sunrise (if you go to work early) and a sunset over the ocean or sea. So, it's no surprise that this guy was able to capture this photo of the sun lining up perfectly with this hook. It's not only satisfying, but it's also pretty beautiful.
It kind of also reminds us of those photos of people at the beach that try to catch the sun in their hands as it's setting, but a bit more coincidental.
Anyone who's ever wrapped a gift will tell you that it's not a small feat to get it looking just perfect. It actually takes quite a bit of practice. However, whoever wrapped this box seems to have mastered the art of wrapping presents because those corners are pretty much perfectly aligned. Our wrapping paper usually looks like something you might imagine a monkey wrapped five minutes before we handed it over.
Either that, or we go for a bag, which is why this is all the more satisfying to see. It proves that wrapping presents well is possible with a little practice and effort.
Someone online posted this photo after they discovered their cheese fit on their bread perfectly. The slice of bread just happened to be cut to the exact dimensions of the cheese or vice versa, depending on how you want to look at it. And unlike some of the other photos of food on this list, this one is really making us hungry. It's also making us curious to see how the sandwich turned out.
It couldn't have turned out too bad with a start like this. Then again, we have a hard time imagining lettuce or other vegetables lining up as perfectly as this slice of cheese.
This photo shows the London Eye, which is basically a giant Ferris wheel in the middle of the city. However, the photo was captured while someone was taking a boat down the river Thames. And the Ferris wheel fits in the window perfectly. The photographer had to be in the perfect place at the perfect time in order to be able to snap this photo, but end result was worth it.
It honestly looks like something out of a travel magazine. We've never seen the London Eye without a bunch of other stuff in the background, and it's refreshing seeing it from a new perspective.
Most people's board game closets look like nothing more than a couple of boxes haphazardly stacked on top of one another. If you're lucky, then your boxes are neatly stacked and aren't all half-open like ours are. However, we've never seen a closet as well put together as this one, with dozens of games all fitting together perfectly. Like some of the other items on this list, it actually looks like a bit of a pain to try and get one out.
Then again, it would almost hurt to take one of these boxes out, even if it were only for a couple of hours. It all just looks so organized and well put together.
February is kind of a weird month as far as months go. It's the only one with 28 days in it, and every four years, people just decide to give it an extra day randomly. The photo here wasn't taken during a leap year, but it does fit on the screen perfectly. Usually, when you look at your calendar on your phone, you see a couple of extra days in there from either the month prior or the month after.
However, if you were to look at your calendar during February of 2021, it probably would've looked something like this — perfectly aligned and without extra days from other months.
Someone was apparently moving and decided to show the world their packing skills when they posted this photo online. And we're glad they did. This photo reminds us of a game of Tetris. The items in this photo are all basically squares or rectangles, but they all fit together perfectly. Whoever did this actually has a lot of leftover space left, despite it looking like they're completely finished packing everything.
We're sure whoever this was probably spent an ungodly amount of hours playing Tetris when they were younger. How could they not have with packing skills like that?
This one is pretty cool. Someone posted this photo of their two guitars after discovering that the headstocks fit together perfectly. The guitars, one a Gibson and the other a Schecter, look as if they were made for each other. And these being among the two largest manufacturers of guitars in the world, we wouldn't be surprised if this was just some kind of cheeky easter egg done on the part of one of the companies.
It's also totally possible that it's just a coincidence, considering the general shape of most guitars is fairly similar, but just look at that fit. It's hard to believe this wasn't intentional.
Unlike most of the other photos on this list, this one is actually focusing on a person. Someone snapped this picture of a woman on the bus who seemed to have found her perfect seat. Okay, well, it's actually two seats or a bench seat if you prefer, but you get what we're saying. She has her legs stretched out, and they end exactly where the seat in front of her begins.
Taking the bus is definitely not our favorite mode of transportation, but this woman actually makes it look kind of bearable, if not downright comfortable. Of course, that depends on if you actually fit stretched out on the bench seat.
As we state in a couple of other posts on this list, always measure before you buy furniture. Because odds are you won't be as lucky as whoever took this photo. They bought a dresser without measuring and got home to find that it fits perfectly in their little nook. Not only that, but it actually looks pretty great there. Plus, it's occupying a space that's a bit odd to use for anything else.
Luckily, in the end, it fit perfectly and made for a satisfying photo as well. We just hope that they take the time to measure next time because it's hard to strike gold twice.
Here is another cool photo. Someone found a pair of gloves that just happened to pair with their tattoo perfectly. It has a little cutout that still allows you to see their knife tattoo. You really couldn't have made a better-fitting pair of gloves. Whoever posted the photo said that their friend actually found the gloves for them. That's a pretty good friend and an even better pair of gloves.
The knife tattoo itself isn't half bad either, especially not now that you can actually see the whole thing and the tip of the blade isn't covered up by clothing.
This photo was posted after someone lost their ring to their cabinet's handle. The person said that they were removing their hand, and their ring just slid off. Not only that, but it basically stayed perfectly balanced between the handle and the cabinet. At least they noticed it before walking off and just completely forgetting about it. Otherwise, they probably would've gone ringless for at least a couple of days.
This isn't the only photo on this list that involves a lost ring, which leads us to think that some of these people need to get their rings resized.
If you're unfamiliar with what a stroopwaffle is, it's basically two very thin waffles held together by caramel. And this stroopwaffle fits perfectly on top of this person's cup. If it were larger, then it probably wouldn't heat properly, which is what the poster said they were trying to do when this photo was taken. We're not exactly sure what's more satisfying, the thought of a cup of coffee and a stroopwaffle or the photo itself.
Honestly, they're probably both equally as satisfying. We mean, that stroopwaffle in the photo almost fits as well as an actual lid if lids were made out of tasty snacks.
Does this swing in the photo fit in its spot perfectly? Yes. Is it still a little sad to look at yet? Yes. We're not sure who put this swing here or why, but despite the perfect fit, it's still a little bit of a downer. Who's going to be able to slide down now that they are likely to slide right into a wall? It doesn't really make any sense.
Hopefully, whoever put this slide here was just moving it in out of the rain or something. But we've never heard of a slide needing to be protected from the weather before.
No, this is not a closet filled with packaging material. Instead, it's a doorway someone posted at work. They were amazed at just how precisely the packaging material fit in their colleague's doorway. And while that raises some questions as to why or how they had enough time to assemble a door made out of packaging material, we're kind of thankful that they did. This photo is almost mesmerizing to look at.
It also makes us curious as to how they managed to get the final pieces in place since it's such as tight fit. They likely would've had to assemble it and then slide it into the doorway.
No, this isn't some kind of collaboration between Beats and Xbox. Instead, someone just happened to notice that their Xbox controller fits perfectly into their Beat case. We're sure it was just coincidental, but it's satisfying nonetheless, especially since the headphones and the controller are in matching colors. If you happen to have these two products yourself, then you could probably give this a try and see if it works.
Who knows, this might even work for anyone out there who owns a Playstation. The controller designs are different, but they're not radically different. They even have similar dimensions.
This is probably one of the tightest fits on this list. Someone bought an end table and didn't want to have to move their couch, which was apparently already there. They said that they put the table right beside their heater, and it had just enough space to be able to open the drawer. We have to agree. There's barely any space on either side once the drawer is opened.
It's a perfect fit, but it's probably not the perfect choice when it comes to aesthetics. Still, the satisfaction of being able to open and close the drawer more than makes up for it.
Okay, so pizzas come in all shapes and sizes. However, there's no denying that the amount of luck it took to get a pizza that perfectly fits on this chopping board is nothing short of impressive. Even the rounded edges line up to a remarkable degree. In fact, it'd almost be a shame not to just serve the pizza on the cutting board. A regular plate just wouldn't do it justice.
Especially when it comes to a square pizza. You'd be left eating square pizza slices off a round plate and that's just not as satisfying as eating off this cutting board.
If you've never seen this painting before, it's basically a famous painting of a diner scene. However, someone happened to find the exact perfect spot to hang their copy of the painting. This particular spot on the wall gets just enough sunlight that it looks like the sun is shining into the diner and the scene. It's actually really cool to look at, and hopefully, it never leaves this space.
You couldn't ask for a better spot to hang this particular painting. We wonder if they found this by coincidence or if they had this in mind when they were looking to hang the frame.
Someone posted this photo after bringing home the cabinet pictured here and seeing that it fit their space. It does fit the space perfectly. However, that's kind of a weird cabinet. It almost looks as if it were made just to hold shoes. That's also a really weird space. Why would someone design a random empty space that looks like a closet? Anyway, we're glad they were able to fill it with something.
Even if we're not entirely sure what exactly that something is meant to hold. However, at least we got a satisfying photo out of it, we suppose. And that's all that matters.
This photo is both very pleasing and kind of unfortunate at the same time. It's pleasing because the top of the can fits in the drain perfectly. Like, it fits better than you might imagine a drain stopper to fit. However, it's also probably going to be pretty hard to get out of there. There's literally zero space left, and it almost looks as if the top was machined to fit that spot perfectly.
Luckily, it looks as if they have a knife handy, which may or may not be of use in this situation. Honestly, it doesn't even look as if there's enough space to fit a knife blade in there.
The fit in this photo is so good that it actually requires a bit of observation. Someone put their Wii in their entertainment center, and not only did it fit, but it fit so well that it's kind of hard to tell the Wii apart from the cabinet. They're also the same color, which really doesn't help. You really couldn't ask for a better fit than this, if we're being honest.
Of course, that does raise the question if there is actually enough space for the console's fan to work its magic. But it looks so good there we'd be tempted just to leave it.
This one is almost too good to be true. The photo shows seven pills that were apparently sitting together so perfectly that they got stuck when someone opened their pill bottle. They remained in this really cool pattern, we're guessing, whoever opened the bottle reached down and took one or two of them out. We're not sure what the odds of this happening are, but it's pretty impressive.
It almost makes us want to flip some pill bottles upside down until we can recreate the results, but who knows how long that might actually take. Probably years if we were to guess.
There really should be a Reddit thread out there for people who deliver packages to post their most satisfying photos. Someone posted this photo of a package that was left for them before they got home. It fits the window or door perfectly. We'd be super excited to see this upon getting home, but we're sure whoever delivered it was even giddier when seeing that it fit the way it does.
It almost looks like it's a part of the building. Also, we'd like to know where this photo was taken because wherever it was, it must be extremely safe to be able to leave a package outside in a city.
Okay, so there might be other photos on this list that show things fitting together better physically, but we're betting they're still not quite as satisfying as this photo. It shows a duck and a dog just cuddling next to each other, and it's probably one of our favorite photos on the list for the simple fact that we absolutely love both ducks and dogs as pets. But that's not to say they don't "fit" together, either.
The duck in this photo fits together perfectly with his head wrapped around his best friend and vice versa. It's almost as if the two were made for each other.
We're sure the pattern on these shoes looked appealing to this guy when he bought them. However, after seeing this on the escalator, he was probably reassessing his decision. Nobody wants escalator shoes. Still, it's nice that he took a photo and shared it online for the world to see. It's really kind of hard to tell where the shoes end and the escalator begins because the patterns are so similar.
It kind of reminds us of one of those optical illusions, where if you stare at it long enough, you begin to see the pattern twist and move around.
This is just a coincidence, but it's hard to see the sun shining on this car and not think it's special in some way. The car also fits in that specific patch of sun, kind of perfectly. However, this photo also makes us wonder just how long or just how bored the person who took the photo was. They were probably staring down from an office and just happened to notice it after a while.
Also, why does this building apparently have a large square chunk missing off the roof? That's kind of weird if you think about it, and it looks like it's intentional.
We've never seen an aisle that's so perfectly stocked. And we realize that sentence sounds weird without context, but just look at this photo. Whoever stocked these shelves honestly deserves a raise. It's just so oddly satisfying to look at. Everything is just where it should be, and all of the items are lined up right next to each other perfectly. If there is a better-stocked shelf out there, we'd like to see it.
It's almost a shame that customers are going to come in and actually buy stuff off of it, which is also a weird sentence to say without proper context.
