Inarguable Signs that Kids are Stupid and Weird

There's no question that kids are stupid and weird. We remember being afraid of getting flushed down the toilet as much as anyone else. All we can say is it's a shame that the natural state of a human being is to be so harmfully stupid. How did any of us make it this far? Growing up, was anyone else astounded that car blinkers somehow predicted exactly which way a car would turn every time? Seriously, there are too many clear signs that kids are weird and dumb.

The Things Restaurant Employees Have Seen Done To A Customer's Order

In most places it's a crime to spit in someone's food, and food industry people will admit that it's more rare than you'd think. What's more common is people doing EXACTLY what the customer asks for, like making the food too spicy, overcooking it or giving them about 500% too much mayo. It shouldn't be a surprise that it's a pretty dumb idea to be a ding dong to the person cutting your slice of cake. You never know if the employee you're talking to is someone who just doesn't give a heck.

Angry Customer Doesn't Realize That It's April

Hey man, these are strange times. Time itself seems to be kicking along at the strangest pace. It could be a result of the dystopian world we all found ourselves muddling through about a year ago. With that being said, it doesn't hurt to check that calendar before bombarding a call center with a fiery complaint that absolutely could've been avoided in the first place.

Dumbest Things People Get Upset Over

It's no secret that people tend to take things too personally. A statement about your own favorite TV show will be interpreted as an attack on their favorite TV show. An attempt to pass someone on the freeway can turn into an impromptu drag race. Here are some incredibly minor and absurd things people tend to react to as if they've been slapped in the face. There's just some petty stuff that that people are extremely passionate about.

Boss Orders Endless Task, Ends Up Stuck With It

Sometimes managers don't fully think through the things they ask their employees to do, resulting in modern-day Sisyphean labors. And anyone who has had a "make-work" kind of boss can attest to the diminishing returns of their demands. Anyone ever spend a day pulling staples out of rotten wood that all ended up going in the same garbage anyway? Fickle managers and customers can end up asking us to serve up contradictions, like this customer who asked for garlic-free garlic bread

Teacher Assumes TV Trolley Doesn't Need To Be Plugged In, Learns Otherwise

Just because someone's a teacher doesn't mean that they haven't fallen through the cracks, and missed the boat on something that's so obvious it's pretty much in the realm of common sense. With that being said, it sounds like this teacher was just having one of those days. Tech support has to weather the storms of ignorance enough as it already is. The least the rest of us can do is to show them the respect and patience they deserve. Glad that everything was able to be resolved in this tale though. 

Teacher assumes that a portable TV trolley doesn't need to be plugged in, and then learns otherwise.

Shady Manager Tries To Impersonate Employee, Tech Support Shuts Manager Down

Honestly, this manager sounds like he's all kinds of shady. It's moments like the one we hear about in this tech support tale that further demonstrate the value of hard working and aware tech support employees. "Joe" was trying to pull off what very well could've been a criminal action. Fortunately though, he came up short and got humiliated in the process.

Dumb and Clever Moments That Are Technically Right

In our quest to be right about everything, sometimes it's worth it to pull over and smell the roses of "technically accuracy." Sure, these moments, jokes and memes might not be factually correct, but they're close enough to get credit. When it's hard to be right, one might as well go for technical accuracy that isn't exactly wrong.

Blunderous Foibles of The English Language

If there's anything to learn from all the regrettable and dumb spelling fails we see on a daily basis, it's that absolutely no one is immune to really stupid mistakes when it comes to their mastery of the English language. Non-native speakers and people who have been speaking English their whole lives all succumb to the fun and frustration of the English language, and at this rate it looks like there's no way to stop it.

Puns somehow inhabit the highest and lowest forms of humor at the same time. They're kind of like eggs.

Here are some dad jokes that go father than ever before.

Tumblr Has Lawyer-style Debate over Legitimacy of Bread Knife

This Tumblr disagreement over whether or not this bread knife is real became a real debate with counterarguments, claims and diagrams. Frankly at first glance it looks like fake bread, but I guess that's why lawyers exist. For some more lawyer Tumblr stuff, here's a tumblr thread on ridiculous court transcripts. For another argument, here's a tumblr user absolutely schooling another on horses.

Twitter Thread: How Rattata Could Theoretically Beat Goku

Yeah, this is basically stupid, but hey, it's important to never apologize for the dumb stuff you're into. Everyone has their stupid. For the ones who played the Pokémon games while watching old episodes of Dragon Ball Z, this means something, alright? We all know that Pokémon's probability system is madness, but assuming Goku isn't holding a quick claw or something that lets him sneak in a senzu bean, this looks like it holds up.


Hold on, does quick claw provide enough of a stat buff to override the priority of quick attack? Whatever.

But hold on, would Goku's instant transmission be fast enough to end the fight before it even began?

Either way, there's no argument that Rattata could beat Yamcha with no strategy.
