Anyone who's ever been tempted by anything at Rent-A-Center has done the math and decided it's a stupid idea to rent a TV, so why are corporate big wigs getting away with the business version of the same thing? It seems like almost anyone would be better at budgeting than these suits. For another genius move by management, here's a time management illegally banned overtime pay and IT got it all back.

While kids have garnered plenty of a reputation for being flat out silly and dumb, they can also get devilishly inventive when faced with the possibility of getting in trouble for a continued pattern of unacceptable behavior.

Products That Are Too Marked Up For Their Own Good

Just about everything is a little bit of a racket. Hell, if everything was sold at cost, there'd be no reason for anyone to run a business. It's when businesses use brand sway and deceitful practices to drive insane markups that things start to seem unfair and hairy. Even if you are spending a lot on movie theater sodas and designer eyeglasses, at least you're not following these bits of the dumbest financial advice people have gotten. On the other side of it, here are reckless uses of money that people didn't regret at all.

Pun Business Names That Really Went For It

Does a business with a funny name make it a better business? Honestly, no. And in some case, like going to a chiropractor with a silly name would probably feel like a deal breaker. Who in this world wants their spine guy to be full of dad jokes? That said we can't fault these entrepreneurs for hinging the success of their business on a silly name they thought of.

History Memes That Are Better Than Book Learning

If there's one benefit to learning history (other than developing a keener understanding of the world and your context in it) it's getting sweet history memes. Knowing what happened to various astronauts or the attitudes of different colonial powers may not win you any popularity contests, but it sure is fun to look at history memes and become one with time.

Misfortune Monday: Life Is Uncertain

For every small thing that can go right, there's about a hundred things that can go wrong.

Food is one of the great joys of life. But when it goes wrong, cursed food can quickly become one of its great terrors.
