Incompetent Manager Tries To Make Employee Work After Firing Them

There are some people and jobs out there that it just feel too good to get away from. In this case it was a tyrannical boss who flouted the rules and tried to make someone work after firing them. Quitting a frustrating situation and having a "screw this, I'm out" moment can lead us to reevaluating ourselves and moving on to something better.

Eye-Twisting Moments of Strange Perspective

The world isn't always straight forward. Sometimes you're looking at it from the side, or some other angle that obscures your view of someone's face. It's these illusions of eye-defying double-takery that can make us go "waaahhh" while trying to figure out if that's a dog or a boat. Foreground be damned, doubletake inducing photos of skewed perspective are here to stay.

Stealing Roommate Gets Clothes Dyed for Free

The only good thing about having a roommate that steals your stuff is that if you tamper with your own stuff, they're in no position to complain about your stuff that they deny taking. This is a pretty common tactic. A similar and more explosive thing happened when this food thief's roommate switched to regular milk.

Twitter user _danilo uses an example from Star Trek to explain some of the dangers of having an industry that lacks face-to-face interaction with its own workers. It's scary enough to imagine your job being done by a cold, calculating robot, but what if your boss's job was done by a cold, calculating robot? For something with more Star Trek fun and less technocratic dread, here's an awesome Tumblr post on how hard humans go in Star Trek.

Every day it becomes more apparent that some folks live in a fantasy land where they can just flout the conventions of decency and demand free stuff.
