Stupid Moments That Prove How Kids are Weird and Dumb

Kids are pretty dumb and easy to trick. Even if no one is trying to make them look dumb, they do a fantastic job of looking stupid all on their own. It's not exactly their fault, I mean, they're completely new here. They basically were in fact, born yesterday. So while kids are dumb and weird, they're sort of allowed to be that way.

These frustratingly interesting observations on language and silly literal translations are a good example of that. This can come to a head when overzealous tourists try to get a tattoo in not only a language they don't understand, but in characters that are also completely foreign to them. Case in point, you don't want to misstep and end up as the "goldfish man"

People have a pretty abysmal knowledge of computers, but almost never so bad that they try to have them removed from their office. IT people have to be very patient when a customer's computer won't work. Sometimes people don't know what a power button is. We don't envy people who have to deal with this level of ignorance on a daily basis.
