Dads Respond to Being Told Their Kid Put Olive Oil in their Car

My dad would have said my car doesn't need an extra virgin. The dads involved mostly responded positively. You can kind of gauge their opinion of their kid based on how they reacted. When the daddest dads aren't getting pranked, they're making epic puns and dad jokes.

News people have a ton of cues and time spent on live TV, so they're routinely guilty of on-air mistakes. In this case, that mistake was the classic "I so pale."

Tumblr User Explains Why You've Gotta Be Cool with Spiders to Work in Cranberry Bogs

Tumblr can get, shall we say, overly specific. The nature of the site, and the people on it, can lead to some deep rabbit holes, like this tumblr users getting schooled on physics and car safety, or really specific and fun history. Anyway, this cranberry bog discussion led to a story about the not-so-obvious spider consequences of working in a flooded bog full of swimming spiders.

Employee Gets Burned by New Manager, Crafts Uniquely Confusing Schedule

Some acts of defiance are more trivial than others. This employee's power tripping manager decided to revoke his vacation, so he quit and before he left decided to give him a real confusing send off. Sometimes small revenge is all you need, like this guy who battled his work tie policy by buying the ugliest ties possible.

Attempts That Stumbled into a Pile of Fail

Life is a series of attempts that sometimes crash and burn. Maybe you're trying to make a point on the internet, make a cool piece of art, or just trying to seem cool. Some of these attempts will fail to work out. Without failure, we can't learn, but sometimes people's mistakes are so dumb that it's unclear if they'll learn anything from them.

Failed attempts, facepalms and stupid moments of failure.

This was seconds before Croatia's win against Russia in the 2018 world cup. Right before the final penalty, these firefighters got a call and zipped out of the station in about 20 seconds. Priorities are priorities.

Plane Hero Pressures Smelly Dude Into Putting His Shoes Back On

We'll never understand people who can tolerate themselves being a gross inconvenience to the people around them. Knowing that your feet smell and refusing to put your shoes on on a plane is some trashy behavior. This guy pulled the ol' switcheroo on ol' stinkfoot. We're fans of sweet revenge, like this guy who shut his telemarketers down in person.

Rude Movie Theater Customer Gets Assigned Worst Seat in the House

We get that all the promotions are annoying, but it's just someone's job and you don't have to go out of your way to make someone's job harder. And if in fact you are a jackass about it, don't go trusting them with your movie-going experience. In rare moments in customer service, waiters and servers deliver clapbacks as well.

Tumblr Pokes Artistic Fun at Overly Abstract Gender Chart

The concept for the chart makes sense, it's just an abstract visual metaphor that isn't articulated totally perfectly. That's fine and all, except people on the internet tend to take things very literally. The idea of having one feminine leg seems a bit absurd, so Tumblr took to doodling and had some fun with it. Tumblr is a madhouse of MS painting with Bob Ross and lessons about physics and car safety, so you never know exactly what to expect.

Tumblr Uncovers the Legend of The Fastest Manhole Cover Ever

This story is about a particular event that took place during the nuclear testing of Operation Plumbbob. Officially, the steel plate that popped off was never seen from again, but the calculations point to there being enough energy in that metal cap to escape the earth's atmosphere, and it's been an urban legend/mystery ever since. Tumblr finds some interesting and fun history stuff, like the first soldier to take way too many military grade amphetamines.

Gotta love that mention of "The Next Bill Gates?" It's been over a decade and sadly we haven't heard of Episoft. It's fine and dandy to build your own computer using old parts, and you can't knock them for ambition, but the way he talks about phoenixes rising from ashes is just awesome. You can expect a lot from a slow news day in Maine.

Tumblr Thread Drops Impressive Lyrical Flow On Historical Concept Of Purple

Something that we're consistently amazed by is the ability of people on Tumblr to make history fun and interesting. Like most Tumblr gems, this one started with a small observation on the color of violets, and kind of spiraled into this whole other historical rhyming, calligraphy thing.

Times Guys Totally Missed Obvious Signals

Almost everyone has that moment when they're thinking about a time years ago someone asked them some obviously pointed question like "are you good at back rubs?" or "do you want to wash your pants at my house?" All you can really do is feel bad about not realizing it and move on. Here are some earth-shakingly obvious hints that guys missed. To be fair, sometimes "obvious hints" end up not being hints at all.

Every attempt on the road of life can take a left turn into failure.
