Proof that Kids are Dumb as Rocks

Did anyone need any more proof that kids are stupid and weird? Probably not. We remember all the times we tried to hide behind a window or cried because we ate all of our french fries. Most of us grow out of it, but we also leave behind too many moments that prove kids are dumb and weird.

An Unhealthy Indulgence of Fast Food Nostalgia

Things People Liked as Kids but Hate as Adults

As you age, your sense of self changes, and you realize that your personality is based mostly on commercials and the fact that you used to have more cartilage in your knees. Aging starts at your first encounter with utter BS and continues with factors you didn't anticipate about adulthood, but in the end, you're better for it.

People's First Encounters with Total BS

Everyone has a memory from their childhood that made them first realize that adults are at worst full of hate and at best, full of shit. There are blatant cases of favoritism, obvious lies, and straight up unfair policies. Sometimes students rebelled against unfair school rules, but typically you just had to roll with it.

Evidence of Kids Being Stupid and Weird

We all know that kids are weird and stupid. We remember being dumb as rocks at that age too, so it's not a surprise. They get things wrong, have really strange obsessions, freak out over nothing, say mean things and make ridiculous mistakes. Children are strange and stupid people who deserve to be made fun of.

Stupid Things People Believed as Kids

It's no myth that children are bizarre and stupid. They believe every lie, have a horrible sense of logic, and a lot of them can't read. So it makes sense that many of us remember the incredibly dumb things we believed as children. Some of them even make some sense before you remember how stupid you were.
