The World's Most Notable Design Flaws

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about design flaws that make it seem very obvious that the very people that design the products never actually used the products themselves. Many of us have encountered those various products that are advertised as making most everything in life easier, and then they end up being complete adversaries to that promise of an easier life.

It's a world of incomplete buildings, people with dogs for faces, and magically disappearing stuff. And all it takes is some strange perspective.

Maybe, just maybe, we live in a weird world where this is where the Apple ringtone took its roots. Some dude heard an angry Cockatiel rapping off some angry musings and they just so happened to be catchy and worthy of being the iconic Apple ringtone. Who knows? Either way, this is honestly strangely adorable.

Tumblr Thread: Sensory Deprived Brains Turn Into Hallucination Factories

Anyone who has ever experimented with one of those radical sensory deprivation tanks or chilled out in a pitch black cave for a hot sec will know that your brain gets bored very quickly and starts to churn out some trippy hallucinations to keep itself preoccupied till you return to the land of light. It's just a bit of a disorienting thing to mull over. Maybe this is why some people in this weird universe insist that reality as we experience it is nothing more than our brains' best guesses at what's actually happening. Like a collective hallucination of sorts. Even if that's the case, we're still all in this hallucination together. So might as well be a kind human being and enjoy the ride while it lasts.

Clearly they're both playing dumb so that their actual genius levels of intelligence aren't put on display for the world to see. Is it me or was Alexa talking some smack when she said, "that is not a valid move"?
