Failures, Mistakes, Messes and Errors

Life has a lot of good things going for it, but it wouldn't be life if there weren't also the potential for huge and stupid mistakes. We try to do our best, but mistakes, failures, errors and blunders are bound to get in the way at some point. It could be a frisbee through the windshield or the dropping of a perfect lasagna. There are just too many flavors of chaos to know what to expect.

Misfortune Monday: The Many Flavors of Chaos

It's not hard to come up with ways that things could go wrong. The world is unpredictable. You could find a dangerous animal somewhere you'd rather not want to. You could get totally covered in paint during an accident. You could spill a whole bunch of eggs or a boulder could crush your car. As many flavors of failure and chaos there seem to be, life just keeps inventing more.

Pets that had Run-Ins with Bees

 Like people, cats and dogs can have responses to bee venom that can be mild to severe, but with the right attention and care they just swell up for a while and go back to normal. So for a while, you get an inflated dog or a cat with extreme lips. For some pet stories, here's a wholesome AirBnB with a neighborhood dog visitor as well as a Tumblr thread about a dog that figured out how to herd a lawn roomba.

That's the desperate face of a dog that knows what happened the last time he visited a healthcare professional. First you think he's being overly dramatic for wanting to avoid the vet, then you realize, "what, when was the last time I went to the doctor?"

Valuable Collections People Regret Getting Rid Of

We all like to think, in our own nostalgic haze, that our old toys would be worth something today.

On the other side of things, here are stupid purchases people regret making.
