Deceptive Ads and Bad Products Designed by Jackholes

The idea behind having a good product is that more people will buy it, but sadly, companies still lie and abuse their users and customers with all sorts of manipulative products designed by jerks. Sometimes it's not even manipulative. Sometimes it's just stupidly inconvenient. Can't people just sell stuff that's decent without having to resort to having terrible products and services?

Outlandish Lies that Kids Told Other Kids

What can we say? Kids are dumb. Growing up, everyone had that kid at school who tried to get away with as much BS as possible. Sometimes a kid tried to convince everyone else he had a pet dinosaur, or that his dad was a secret agent. And since we were all kids and no one knew better, sometimes we'd go on believing these idiotic lies for days before that same kid's dad picked him up from school in his catering truck. Lying to kids seems to be a big part of the human experience, hence these adults who are still salty about the unjust lies they were told as kids. Some people are just dumb and try lying to their healthcare professionals. And some people still try to lie online just for fake internet points.

Guy Confronts Son's Teacher For Teaching "Blue Blood" Myth

You remember learning that the reason veins can appear blue is cause deoxygenated blood turns blue? Well that's total horseshit. Your blood doesn't turn blue, and the reason your veins might look that way is because blue and red light travel though skin with different levels of success, so what's reflected back is a more bluish color. If you just learned this, you may be intrigued by these people who learned basic stuff way too late. Anyway, this dad asked if he was wrong for being really persistent with a teacher teaching the wrong thing.
