Not-Incorrect Moments of Technical Accuracy

Cleverness and intelligence are two very different things. The difference can be spotted freely lurking throughout technically correct dumb jokes and moments. Honestly, just knowing things can be boring. Setting up oneself up with some potentially confusing technically accurate logical acrobatics or painfully stupid literalisms is the way to go.

Creepy Moments People Have A Hard Time Explaining

As much as we'd all like to think we're perfectly rational, we're all creatures of suspicion and superstition. Sometimes we see strange events that we can't logically explain like having some weird premonition or out-of-body experience, and all we're left to do is sit there and go "alright, that was weird. People aren't going to believe this."

Tumblr Thread: Grasping The Age of The Appalachians

For most people, geology is pretty uninteresting.

Programmer Humor For The World's Tech Wizards

We're well aware at this point that the folks in this world who work in tech support or just the IT department in general really do hold the keys to the kingdom in some sense. With that being said, tech support deals with all kinds of mind blowing acts of cluelessness from paid professionals that seemingly fell through the cracks on some of the most basic technological knowledge. It could be a scenario where you find yourself being the IT guy who is dealing with a professor that doesn't understand how internet browsers work. That kind of daunting realization requires nothing short of a saintly patience to be able to move forward in the troubleshooting process without losing grip on your sanity altogether.

Or, maybe you're another one of those lucky IT guys who has to calmly walk a company's CEO through how to reboot a computer. Yes, these people really exist. You never know what you might encounter while you muddle through your job in the tech support world. The stories we're able to enjoy from an established subreddit like "Tales From Tech Support" though are eye-opening tales about just how lost some of the world's poor souls are, for when it comes to navigating the use of their computer or other pieces of technological equipment.

Maybe some of the most grim stories from the tech support world will manage to make you feel better about your moments of profound confusion when trying to use your work device. Some people's brains just operate at a frequency where they're completely not tuned into how to use a fancy computer. Perhaps, this is the inevitable collective manifestation of technology continuing to evolve at such a rate that the older generations especially, are pretty much helpless in their pursuit toward getting the most out of their fancy computers, tablets, phones etc. Seems like a reasonable enough assumption to draw. You very well might have fond memories of trying to explain to a parent how they can turn off their iPhone, or change the input on a TV.

But alas, we're straying off the topic of programmers explicitly. Programmers are definitely the backbone of many esteemed companies. They're out there in the pits of the coding world, providing the infrastructure necessary for a company to keep up with these fast moving technological times. With that being considered, it should come as no surprise that programmers are regularly pushed to their breaking point in terms of the kinds of unbelievably clueless questions they field on a daily basis. And these same programmers are furiously working away at all kinds of projects that many of us couldn't hope to understand the first thing about. Maybe we're just gradually sliding into a reality where everyone's going to need to know how to code at some level. The skill itself seems to continue to skyrocket in value, and more and more it's as if people that are able to code have some kind of golden ticket for when it comes to locking down the next promising job opportunity. All in all, these gems from the world's fed up programmers should certainly get the laughs going for anyone who has ever dabbled in the dark art of coding.

IT Guy Assumes Professor Understands Technology, Professor Proves Otherwise

Don't judge a book by its cover. For better or for worse. What initially seems like a promising situation with a professor who gives off technology savvy vibes, ends up devolving into a puzzling situation where the IT dude has to work around the professor's glaring lack of knowledge on how an internet browser works. At least the issue was able to be "resolved."

Professor wants Chrome installed on their computer, gets Chrome installed, still asks for Chrome.

Unexpected Problems Colorblind People Deal With

Perspective can change when you realize you've been taking something for granted. In this case it's interesting to think about how there are so many seemingly inconsequential things that color is used to indicate, like locked doors or plant health.

Bus Driver Strategically Gets Rid of Bus Zone Parkers

It's all about aligning those incentives and consequences. This bus driver was told not to pick people up outside of the designated zones, but dudes just kept parking in those zones, so naturally something had to give.
