Can you imagine what must've been racing through this motorcyclist's brain when he flew through the air, after crashing into the car in front of him, and then miraculously sticks the landing like it was all part of the master plan? I'd guess nothing short of pure disbelief. He looks like he was somehow unharmed. Seriously though, what an unreal turn of events.

Absurd Medical Misconceptions Professionals Have Witnessed

On one hand, it's baffling that some really dumb medical patients refuse to pay close enough attention to understand how their own body works, especially in a life-threatening situation. On the other hand, since doctors exist, it makes some sense that regular people shouldn't be expected to automatically know everything about medicine. On the third hand, the reality that a grown adult might think their lost arm will grow back is as startling as it is disappointing. Wait, that's three hands. Well, case in point.

Karen Goes Through Angry Mental Gymnastics Over Parking Space

The parking lot can bring out the very worst in someone. People can get all kinds of nasty, territorial, and straight up entitled over a parking space. In this case, we have an angry Karen who went out of her way to hassle an employee who was just trying to start up their work day, over a parking space that was rightfully their space to begin with.

Most Common Mistakes People Make In Relationships

Dating can be an equally rewarding and wildly disorienting experience. With the wealth of dating apps available at your disposal, and all the silly nonsense that such apps can drum up, it can be just a bit intimidating when you're trying to figure out where to even start. And then, when you eventually muster up the courage to forge your handy dating profile, and begin swiping away on fellow human beings that suit your fancy, you realize just how hard it is to strike up a meaningful connection in a sea of people that might just be using the app for fun, and nothing more. Suffice to say, it can be a discouraging and draining process. You're absolutely not alone if you're prone to installing and then deleting the app, and then installing it again. A strange cycle for sure, but one that many folks can get caught up in. I mean, who really wants to deal with a relentless wave of shamelessly cheesy pickup lines all the time? Everyone has their breaking point.

Maybe you actually ended up deleting those dating apps and meeting someone out in this crazy world that you genuinely enjoy being around. Such a life development can occur when you least expect it, but when it does, it falls on all of us to handle the situation with as much mindfulness as we can put together. It'd be nice if navigating the whole realm of dating came with some kind of instruction manual, but we're not so lucky. Thus, many of us can fall into relationships that never realize their full potential. Like there's always some mysterious piece missing to complete the puzzle and tie the whole dynamic together.

The last thing you want to find yourself dealing with is an emotionally tumultuous, toxic relationship that only ends up bringing out the worst in you and your partner. Love is a crazy thing in that regard. Loving someone can manage to effortlessly amplify all of your emotions in such a way that you end up being dragged along by them, and make a mess along the way. It's okay though. We've got some awesome human beings on this planet that are dedicated to sharing the hard earned wisdom that they've picked up on their own journeys. In this case, we're talking about an AskReddit thread that has people describing the most common mistakes that folks make during relationships.

If anything a thread like this can serve as a helpful instruction manual on what not to do if you want to live a more peaceful, even happier life. Some examples from the thread are things like the mistake that folks make in terms of not actively listening to one another, taking each other for granted, or avoiding glaring problems that are ruining the relationship. That last one can impact a lot of folks. When you're head over heels for someone, blinded by the rose-colored glasses, it's dangerously easy to shrug off the very issues that need immediate addressing. Anyways, all rambling aside, some folks might find helpful stuff in here to help smooth out the wrinkles in their relationships.

The Best Stuff People Found In The Garbage

"Value" is a very slippery concept, and what one person might choose to throw away could equally be seen as a major score for someone else. There are idiots throwing away guitars, TVs and jackets just because of a small fixable issue, and it's the sworn duty of the rest of us, the shameless garbage sifters, to pluck that ripe fruit-o-the-trash. Ironically it's often the stuff that people try to sell that's the real garbage, like this weird and dumb stuff people tried selling online. For a glimpse at the kind of people throwing nice stuff away, here are some of the most expensive things people witnessed.

Safety Failures That OSHA Wouldn't Be Too Happy About

Anyone in an even somewhat physical job has no doubt been told by their boss to pull some death-defying maneuvers. That's not a good thing, but it's also pretty amazing that there aren't more horrible accidents than there already are. We live in a world full of safety failures that would make OSHA faint. Whether it's an over-creative use of ladders or some bone-headed work with the circular saw, there's just tons of OSHA-unapproved moments of safety failure.
