Facepalm Moments From The Virtuosos of Dumbness

Self-awareness is a skill, but there's nowhere to take lessons. These facepalm moments of human moronitude are a good reminder that most of us are playing with a full deck in the brain department, even if we don't feel like it sometimes. We may lock ourselves out of our houses from time to time, but at least we're not posting one star reviews of national parks complaining that the animals are loose. That's some facepalm-level behavior that we can keep a little bit of distance from, at least most of the time.

Technically Accurate Moments That Were Completely Not Wrong

Technical correctness is a spectrum that can run all the way from "stupid and obvious" to "terrifyingly clever" and we're never ready for what we'll find. Will we come away knowing new unexpected truths? Will we just feel like we've had our own believes said back to us? Or will reading statements so obvious make us feel dumber for having read them? Probably all three. But hey, that's what technically correct moments are all about.

Tumblr Post: Humans Live In A Mildly Magical World

Yeah, so those crazy things like the placebo effect that are a part of our daily existence are actually pretty much magic in action. It's truly wild that we can alter our very state of existence just by believing that something will make us feel a certain way. It's pretty humorous that we totally overlook the magical aspects of life. Like, we might as well be wizards.

Amazing Pet Finder Names That Definitely Kind of Work

With so many animals being pushed into the system, you can only name incoming cats "Snowball" so many times before you get bored and start using a random word generator. It seems like they've even freed themselves from conventional names and just started going for parts of speech and infomercial personalities. That said, even if their name is JG Wentworth, these cats are probably all better pets than Prancer, the most irredeemable dog.

Grandpa's Mailbox Loophole Takes Mail Into The Third Dimension

It's another episode in the wide world of mailbox drama. The rule was that mailboxes had to be 6 feet from the street, but no one specified in which direction. There's probably no way anyone could get away with this now, but that's what the past is for. What can we say except loopholes are great. Here's a dad's masterfully designed Basketball Loophole and these other loopholes people exploited for years.

25 Incompetent Moments of "Unique" Construction and Installation

Can it even be called a "living" room if there's no toilet in there? "Not my job" moments surround us, thanks to our tendency to not want to do our jobs correctly. Sure, that means a lot of way-too-low ceiling fans and stop signs that say "go" but do you think you could do better? Well you probably could. Thanks to these moments of professional inadequacy we can all feel like we'd do a better job.

People Tell Their Age In Non-Numerical Fashion

Like anyone else, our best years are behind us. Or at least they seem that way, since human beings are pretty much psychologically incapable of remembering things accurately. We all want to look back at our VHS tapes and dangerous toys and say that's when we had it all figured out or "young people could never understand this," but in the end it's really just a way of dating yourself. But hey, that's nostalgia, baby.

Confusing Images Of Brain-Shaking Doubletakery

It's always good to have a reminder that your brain is dumb and can be tricked with a really minor adjustment of perspective. For example, these perspective-twisting images of doubletakery are good for an eye workout. Geese can look like spills, bugs become giant, and peoples limbs take on absurd proportions when double take moments of warped perspective come to town.

An Imaginative Conversation On Getting Out Of Work

It doesn't even matter that this is pretty much guaranteed to be fake. The conversation itself is ridiculous and entertaining. Maybe, the best course of action is to just play dumb if you really, really need to get out of work. That goes without saying that it'd certainly be a risky move, and not particularly an advisable, definitely unethical life hack. Check out some more highly unadvisable life pro tips over here

Things That Look Like Tasty Treats But Aren't

It's a crying shame that the world is so full of tasty-looking temptations that look like food but aren't. There are beds that look like ice cream sandwiches, snakes that look like bananas, and boxes of mop heads that look like ground beef. If only we had the digestive capacity to enjoy a mop-burger, but alas. Things that look like tasty food surround us.

Creative Misuses of The English Language

English is a big amorphous blob of a language, and it's difficult to say the right things even when you care about what you're saying. Throw in the fact that a lot of people only know some of it add a dash of "good enough" and you've got yourself some blunderous failures of the English language. But at least there's the consolation that if you want to buy a shirt that says "Pervert" in big red letters, you have options.

Guy Muds Himself Out Of Unfair Rental Charge

 It's the worst feeling when a company tries to screw you over with a fraudulent fee and just expects you to pay it to make the problem (they created) go away. That's why it's so satisfying to see people push back against unfairness in any way they can, like this guy who got hounded for trivial debt and sent them a dime or this guy who battled a store owner who wouldn't change his phone number.

Tumblr Thread on Statistics Is a Necessary Dumbness Test

Math is hard for some folks on tumblr, but sometimes they really get into it, like the time they did the math on forging a literal blood sword. It's super common to see a headline along the lines of "smoking drywall dust increases risk of boneitis by 300%" which sounds extremely scary. But that number only means something if you know the potential boneitis risks of drywall smoking in the first place. We're not super good at math, but if the risk is only .05% and an increase of 300% raises it to .2%, just go ahead and smoke all the drywall dust you want.

don't smoke drywall dust. Also boneitis is a fictional disease from Futurama.

People's Brilliant Ideas That Were Dumb Upon Review

It could be caused by inebriation, tiredness or just our own lack of mental faculties, but we get bad ideas. Sometimes our ideas are phenomenal, but that's only because we've just "invented" something that already exists. As stupid as our brilliant thoughts are, we can all have faith that even a stupid thing we invent could be used for something other than its intended purpose.

Brilliant Moves of Highly Variable Effectiveness

It doesn't feel very good to be outsmarted. But at at the same time, it's worth having a chance to be the one doing the outsmarting. All we can really do is hedge our bets and try to be the outsmarter more often than the outsmarted. Of course it's often impossible to tell when you've been outsmarted, so maybe we're all just a bunch of fumbling rubes. For some brilliance in the form of bold shenanigans, here are some mad lads who made the world their big briny oyster.
