Unsafe Maneuvers From Those Tempting Fate

It should occur to everyone that letting your dog pilot your scooter is a bad idea, yet some of us choose to trudge further on life's metaphorical (or literal) tightrope. Is it that we have too much blind faith in our ability to complete these unsafe maneuvers? Is it the belief that we're invincible? Is it self-confidence? Is it frugality? Whatever the reason for the many safety failures out there, it doesn't make them any less of a spectacle.

Misfortune Monday: Why Should Anything Go Right?

Not trying to be a Charlie Brown here, but it's not like there's a natural law dictating that our lives must go perfectly. We just kind of have to hope our lives play out better than horribly and not let the setbacks get to us. That's a hard thing to do in a merciless world where things just keep happening, but we're basically out of options. The world is home to misfortune and chaos, and we are its roommates.

Misfortune Monday: The World Keeps On Turnin'

The world is a merciless place filled with chaos and misfortune of all stripes. It's almost not even worth it thinking about what could go wrong, just because so much can go wrong. Worried your dog will escape your fence? Well he's already chewed up your shoes. Afraid your car will get towed in that iffy spot? Well it's been crushed by a tree. It's clear that in life, things just keep happening and we only have a little bit of control over the menagerie of misfortune that might befall us.

Safety Failures Of OSHA-Defying Boldness

Sure, the get 'er done mentality is an effective way to motivate yourself to complete tough jobs and long hours, but when it's used by your boss to justify lowering you on a backhoe over the side of a cliff, you're entering safety failure territory. Anyone with a physical job is regularly tempted or ordered to take scary shortcuts in the form of safety failures that would make OSHA faint. Gotta admit, jacking a car up with a plastic chair doesn't really seem worth it.

Design Fails That Could Have Used a Second Look

For some reason it's always the least detail-oriented who are in charge of details. Maybe it's a lax attitude toward perfection that leads to some "not my job" failures of professionalism. Maybe it's just overconfidence that results in design failures that deserve some blame. Whatever the reason, it sure does not look good to have a big sign that reads "We will eat your family."

Spelling Failures That Are Hard To Put Into Words

It results in a whole lot of regrettable and dumb spelling failures.

Weird and Self-Defeating Failures of Design

Okay, maybe most of us would haven't let that slide, but we all know someone who would. There are a fair share of design failures that deserve some blame.

Spelling Fails That Left Us Emotionally Robbed

Spelling can be challenging, but there's sort of a base level that most of us should be comfortable with by now. That's not the case. We see spelling fails all the time. The really good ones are when people homebrew their own creative spelling of a popular phrase. No, it doesn't make sense to suffer from day jaw food, but that's just how regrettable and dumb spelling fails go.

Fails and Mistakes That Were Someone's One Job

There are a lot of reasons for failure at someone's one job. Sometimes it's negligence or laziness. Sometimes someone is in the process of learning something new. Sometimes an otherwise competent person has to do the same job with no resources and in a quarter of the time. Sometimes it's the profound ability to ignore common sense. That one is our favorite. It's the main force behind design fails that didn't go as planned.

Chaotic Moments of Misfortune and Failure

Life is unpredictable, and some unfortunate moments are bound to happen. All you can really do is take them in stride and take some solace in the fact that other people also have to deal with life's unfortunate failures and moments of chaos. There's runaway tires, lumber spills on the freeway, and deceptively baked bread. Given the option, you kinda hope for the bread one.
