Tumblr Post: Humans Live In A Mildly Magical World

Yeah, so those crazy things like the placebo effect that are a part of our daily existence are actually pretty much magic in action. It's truly wild that we can alter our very state of existence just by believing that something will make us feel a certain way. It's pretty humorous that we totally overlook the magical aspects of life. Like, we might as well be wizards. 

A funny Tumblr post about how humans are actually magical beings.

Anyone who has ever worked a customer service gig knows that the job comes with its unfortunate boatload of experiences that involve dealing with wildly entitled individuals.

Grandpa's Mailbox Loophole Takes Mail Into The Third Dimension

It's another episode in the wide world of mailbox drama. The rule was that mailboxes had to be 6 feet from the street, but no one specified in which direction. There's probably no way anyone could get away with this now, but that's what the past is for. What can we say except loopholes are great. Here's a dad's masterfully designed Basketball Loophole and these other loopholes people exploited for years.

25 Incompetent Moments of "Unique" Construction and Installation

Can it even be called a "living" room if there's no toilet in there? "Not my job" moments surround us, thanks to our tendency to not want to do our jobs correctly. Sure, that means a lot of way-too-low ceiling fans and stop signs that say "go" but do you think you could do better? Well you probably could. Thanks to these moments of professional inadequacy we can all feel like we'd do a better job.

People's Dumbest "I Don't Need A Doctor" Moments

Unfortunately, the internet breeds a whole lot of aggressive moments of pure and utterly profound ignorance. Many of us can fall prey to those times when we look to the internet and its collection of definitely unqualified "medical professionals" to provide advice on issues that are definitely in need of medical attention. Maybe these stories will make you feel a bit better about your own mindless moments in the realm of needing/not needing medical advice.

Twitter Thread: The Appalachians Are Older Than Most Things

Like this tumblr thread on the age of the Appalachians says, those mountains are older than bones. Not individual bones, but like the advent of bones. Alex Petrovnia gets into the geological wonder of a mountain range that spans continents and eras. It's weird how sometimes the most mundane things can be extremely interesting, like this thread on lobsters orthe electric story on the naming of Triscuits.

The Most Disrespectful Houseguests People Have Had

Every person's house is a castle, and sometimes castles get put under siege. Whether it's the neighbor's horrible kid, a random dude who got in during a party, or a brother-in-law who needs to stay for one night for six months, we've all had moments that made us wonder "why do I ever let people in here." The bar never seems to hit rock bottom when it comes to the worst houseguests people have experienced. Sometimes distance isn't even enough in the case of people's worst neighbors.

Husband Cheaps Out On Hotel Room, Doesn't Tell Wife, Drama Ensues

So, apparently there are some folks out there that define the difference of an extra $40 to be worthy of being deemed "extortionate." Clearly, this husband didn't account for the fact that the person he was giving an earful to on the phone would feel compelled to leave a reminder note about their particularly unpleasant encounter. Suffice to say, when the truth was revealed to his wife, it certainly ended up stinging him a bit. 

Husband cheaps out on a hotel room for him and his wife, she freaks out, and then learns the truth.

Unreasonable Vegan Employee Refuses To Deliver Food With Meat In It

Some companies can be unreasonable, and there are some occupations out there people are sure no one enjoys. But when you refuse to do the job you agreed to do, and push the responsibility onto your coworkers, there become fewer and fewer questions about who's being impossible. It's not even a dietary restriction thing, it's a having coworkers thing. For some "intriguing" dietary stories, here's an uncle who demanded a meat meal at a vegan wedding and an irrational neighbor who demanded nutless baklava.

People Tell Their Age In Non-Numerical Fashion

Like anyone else, our best years are behind us. Or at least they seem that way, since human beings are pretty much psychologically incapable of remembering things accurately. We all want to look back at our VHS tapes and dangerous toys and say that's when we had it all figured out or "young people could never understand this," but in the end it's really just a way of dating yourself. But hey, that's nostalgia, baby.

Confusing Images Of Brain-Shaking Doubletakery

It's always good to have a reminder that your brain is dumb and can be tricked with a really minor adjustment of perspective. For example, these perspective-twisting images of doubletakery are good for an eye workout. Geese can look like spills, bugs become giant, and peoples limbs take on absurd proportions when double take moments of warped perspective come to town.

Is this heartwarming? Or is this a sign of "them kids not knowin which way is up or down with them their noses buried into them cell phones all day?" Eh, maybe it's in between. What it is is Bo Jackson, the only athlete to ever be an all star in both baseball and football, politely explaining his immense sports prowess to a kid who doesn't seem to realize the gravity of the moment he finds himself in. But hey, most people don't have a clue who Jim Thorpe is, so who are we to judge.

So, it's pretty much a fact that this might be the best candy in the dang world. Anyone who has ever messed with the sour Altoids knows that they're on a level of their own. The fact that this guy is bringing back the infamous Altoids Tangerine sour candies is quite exciting.

Just imagining a scenario where you're forced to make a landing in the middle of a crowded road would be enough to bring a whole lot of people's brains into a panic. However, it's clear that this pilot's operating on a different level. Maybe after enough training you can just sink into a stress free automated existence where you don't think twice about the implications of not nailing a landing on a crowded road.

Vegan Employee Refuses To Eat Suspicious Cake, Coworker Cries

At this point, adults can eat whatever they want and as long as they don't try to get in other people's faces over it, no harm no foul. There are a surprising amount of situations where people decide to be unreasonable about other people's diets, like this Vegan employee who suggested a coworker eat their burger outside or this vegan who demanded a fellow wedding guest's vegan meal. It goes every which way, like this uncle who demanded a meat meal at a vegan wedding or this irrational neighbor who demanded nutless baklava

Don't these people have work to do?
