Un-Fun Facts to Quote Around Respected Colleagues

Knowledge is power, and some weird knowledge has the power to alienate strangers. Knowing how bleak, desolate, painful and precarious the world is can be a lot to handle, but it might make people think you're smart. That's kinda cool, right? Some facts are too sad, which is why it also helps to know wild sex facts to quote during an awkward silence.

Absurd Pet Names People Encountered

Why not name a dog "Big Boy Binglebangle" or "Lunchbox?" Why not name a cat "Federico Feline-y?" Well, at some point you're gonna have to bring them to the vet, look another human being in the eyes and say "I'm worried that Sergeant Jebediah Funkness III has a heart condition" and  all of a sudden things have gotten weird. That said, a dumb name doesn't mean a dumb pet. Here are some worryingly smart stunts pulled by people's pets.

Pun Business Names That Really Went For It

Does a business with a funny name make it a better business? Honestly, no. And in some case, like going to a chiropractor with a silly name would probably feel like a deal breaker. Who in this world wants their spine guy to be full of dad jokes? That said we can't fault these entrepreneurs for hinging the success of their business on a silly name they thought of.

It's no Kool-Aid man, but hey, it's a dog. While uncharacteristically squeaky,  somewhat creepy sounding, and almost TIE fighter-esque, this dog's "oh yeah" is still a triumph. How do they train it to do that?

Gotta hand it to Laso Schaller on this one. Probably the first thing one notices on viewing a fall of 58.8 meters (or about 192 feet) is how goddamn fast it goes. It's a stark reminder that gravity is your daddy and at any point you could fall off papa's lap. For another crazy POV there's this mountain biker's adrenaline-charged ride.

Influencers Get Called Out For Lobster Scam

Scamming your way into a free lobster dinner is dishonest and stupid. But complaining that your lobster is bad, then finishing it, then going to a different restaurant and getting more lobster? That takes some nards, man. It's well known that restaurant owners somehow have all the time in the world to battle their horrible customers, like this lying Karen who got decimated by an owner's response.

Bad But Impressive Budget Engineering Solutions

People may not have a whole lot of money, but what they do have is creativity and ingenuity. And sometimes they have more of that than decent sense. What results are gutters made out of old boots, precarious ladder formations and a whole lot of other impressive and dumb low budget DIY solutions.

Most of us probably couldn't think of a more trustworthy mailman than Mr. McFeely of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, but this particular visit left a group of kids screaming in fear over the entrance of another character, Purple Panda. Man, they absolutely could not handle it. There's nothing quite like watching a room of children absolutely lose it over a dude in a panda suit.

Skillful Creations of Dubious Taste

Why do a weird job bad when it could be done with so much skill that it makes you question everything? Sure, taste is subjective, but most people would admit that a hand made Dora the Explorer themed knife set isn't exactly the greatest use of most people's time and effort. It's still cool that people continue to make skillful creations of questionable taste.

A small plane had to make an emergency landing on a Minnesota highway, hitting an SUV in the process. No injuries were reported. Luckily for everyone, the pilot of the small plane was Craig Gifford, an award-winning acrobatics pilot. He said he had to make the emergency landing after experiencing engine failure. All in all, not a bad person for the job.

Nicolai Geertsen managed a cool-looking score when his first attempt bounced off the goal and right back at him. Undeterred, he went for it again in a showing that looked more like ping pong than anything else.
